Format: DVD
The Humanoid is about Eric (Mark hildreth, Herro in Gundam Wing) who arrives at planet Lazeria with his friend Alan to see his girlfriend Sherry, as soon as they arrive the ship crash lands and the guys escape the ship while under attack in a cool action scene with great 80's soundtrack. They escape pod is destroyed and they escape to Sherry's house where they meet the Humanoid Antoinette who starts to develop emotion after meeting Eric. Eric goes to investigate the ruins from which they were attacked from, he is captured along with Sherry and the old guy who went to see Governer Proud(I know the name sounds stupid).

Then Antoinette kicks butt as she saves the group from evil Governer Proud who wants a key to the "most powerful ship in the universe", it turns out the key is inside Antoinette who gets injured while getting the key taken from her. When the ship is Activated it kills gen proud and his men as the heats evaporates them, the heat meats Antoinette fake skin off with a nice song in Japanese through the last part where she falls from the ruins and dies (shame no subs for the song). After this Alan, Sherry and Eric leave the planet followed by an epilogue by Dr Watson about if Robots can have emotion.

Throughout this ova there is alot of talk about coffee, theres are reference every couple of minutes also the Dub made by the Ocean Group. Shame there being no extras in this release as the USA release features extras including a coffee montage.

"Now it's time to drink deeply of life's richness!" 4 Nov. 2007
By iansomniak - Published on
Format: DVD
"Who can say a machine has no soul?" That's the question posed by the title character's brilliant inventor in this timeless tale of love, robots, and coffee.

On the beautiful and serene planet of Lazeria...with its expansive green fields and forests, and sparkling blue waters...humans live peacefully alongside the displaced citizens of planet Megalos. The Megalosian Emperor and his people retreated to Lazeria in the wake of a devastating war. Since the Emperor's recent death, his lovely young daughter, Princess Ignasia, has represented the Megalosians, guided by the faithful but follicly-challenged Minister Libero and his unscrupulous lavender-cheeked contemporary, Governor Proud. Earthlings on Lazeria are represented by the mustachioed scientific genius, Dr. Watson, and his vivacious granddaughter, Sheri.

Three months ago, a caffeine-addicted astronaut named Alan and his lovesick long-haired crewman, Eric, left Earth on a supply run to Dr. Watson's Lazerian laboratory. With touchdown imminent, Eric double-checks the B3 system while Alan downs another steaming mug of joe as countless computer screens flicker around him. "Coffee: My salvation from my day-to-day drudgery," he sighs. Suddenly, their spacecraft loses power and begins descending steadily towards the vast landscape of Lazeria. Red warning lights flash wildly as the ship plummets ever faster. "We'll have to use the escape pod!" shouts a panicky Alan as he tries in vein to avoid spilling his precious black drink. Seconds later, the two spacemen huddle in the cramped cylinder, watching their disabled gray craft as it smashes through the foliage of Lazeria's jungle. But their trauma is far from over! A fleet of crimson turbo planes careens at them from an ancient ruined building, launching a barrage of missiles and machinegun blasts in their pod's direction! Before they know what hit them, Eric and Alan are crawling out of the river, relieved that their smoking space pod remained good to the last drop.

Inexplicably, the robust-looking Alan is nearly dead with exhaustion after the pair's hike through the tranquil Lazerian fields, but they eventually arrive at the palatial home of Dr. Watson and the wide-eyed beauty in short-shorts, Sheri--the girl Eric's been pining for during the torturously lengthy interstellar voyage. Here, they meet Watson's stunning masterpiece, Antoinette, an artificial human female designed to interact harmoniously with nature. "I knew the doctor's project was gonna be special," says Eric as he admires the curvaceous robot in the pale-yellow jumpsuit, "And I'm glad he had a sense of form as well!" Alan couldn't care less about the humanoid's form; he just wants another sip of that famous, full-bodied coffee she serves up! "I can feel life flowing back into me," exclaims the caffeine connoisseur after gulping a hot mouthful and inhaling the rich aroma of Antoinette's special brew, "You made my day!" Later, the orange-vested java junkie and the emotional chrome-plated cutie stare out the window at the reunited lovebirds, Eric and Sheri. "Human emotions such as love are impossible to convert into computer data," Alan explains to the inquisitive android. But the jealous look in her ample, blue-green eyes as she watches Eric embracing his pretty blonde sweetheart in the moonlight says otherwise...

Featuring gorgeous character designs by Hajime Sorayama, a fearlessly vibrant color palate, and thrilling action sequences punctuated by pounding 80's-style beats, `The Humanoid' is a stylish work of well as a unique tribute to the world's most popular beverage. The only thing against this spectacularly entertaining anime is its disappointingly short running time of just 47 minutes. I mean, that's less than an hour (duh!). It would have been nice if the folks at Central Park Media had made this DVD a double-feature along with some other short anime, but they did include a funny and informative feature called "Fun Facts." When you select this option, you'll be bombarded with all kinds of pop-up information as you watch the film. You'll learn that one of Sorayama's robots can be found on the cover of Aerosmith's "Just Push Play" album, and that the term "Internet" was first used in 1982. You'll also learn about famous bald people; things that are dangerous; deforestation; and how to determine if a Y is a vowel or a consonant. `The Humanoid' is rated 13 and up despite the fact that the English-language version contains nothing offensive aside from some violence against robots. This film is best enjoyed while drinking Dunkin' Donuts Coffee, Original Blend.

"Now the world begins to dim from sight, masked in shade. I hardly feel the loss of memories, as they fade. Still it hurts as tears cut down my cheek, like a blade. I wish I dared to call out to you, oh my love. Loving you, in Platinum. Only you, so very close at hand, but so far away."

CHECK THIS OUT! 19 July 2010

It's an older movie produced in 1986. It's worth the look, scenes are a little choppy and it looks like the waterfalls are running but in fact they didn't want to use up the budget. The best part of this movie is the story line. I gave it four stars because it was not long enough to explain the function of the Humanoid. They rushed it when they could have taken there time.

nice "filler" video if you're short on time 15 Nov. 2005
By sparky_magic_rainbow - Published on
Format: DVD
The //idea// behind this movie is wonderful but the execution leaves much to be desired. There wasn't enough character development to make the romance believable. The android sees Eric and boom falls in love and is ready to sacrifice everything for him. That being said there are some nice songs and action sequences. Got mine for only $10 at Tower Records so Im not too bitter :)
Good short movie should have been longer 27 Dec. 2012

This is another good starter for someone who is interested in knowing about the early start of anime. Also the price is good that you will not have to spend as much. Nice plot of someone wanting power.
