24 December 2007: Alpha would pass a Voight-Kampff test

Alpha
Alpha.

"More human than human." Those of you familiar with the phrase are probably thinking of Blade Runner. I'm thinking of Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou. Alpha is profoundly human—so much so that she brings life to that trope. That is, she is so human that her character is only believable to me because she is a robot. I guess I'm not explaining myself very well, but take a look at her response to the aftermath in Quiet Country Cafe and maybe you'll understand what I mean. Viewers unfamiliar with the YKK manga will probably find the OAVs somewhat perplexing, but Alpha's charisma compels watching nevertheless.
