“The Humanoid” is a 47-minute, one-volume OVA from 1986. It appears to have been created to showcase the sexy, erotic, female pin-up robotic designs of Hajime Sorayama
… and to promote the drinking of coffee.

For 40 years, on Lazeria, a distant planet within our galaxy, an Earth research outpost, and the exiled royal family and their supporters from the war torn planet Megalos, have peacefully co-existed while, most importantly… growing coffee. With nothing much to do besides drinking coffee, caring for his simpering granddaughter, Sheri, and talking with the Megalosian scientist, Libero, Earthling Head Research Scientist, Dr. Watson, has the time to create the ultimate nerd fantasy: a girl robot, a ’bot with back, Antoinette. While peeping at Sheri hanging out with her supply ship courier boyfriend, Eric, Antoinette blows a few circuits and begins to learn about the “power of love”. However, this caffeinated utopia is doomed to soon come to an end.

Governor Proud seeks to use the ancient Lazerian ship, the Iksion, to travel back to Megalos and reestablish the royal family’s monarchy under the dimwitted Princess Ignacia. Libero warns Proud that the ship is too powerful to control, and that launching it will destroy Lazeria. But after thinking it over, he gives Proud one of the two keys needed to activate the spaceship, and lets him know that Dr. Watson has the other key (Huh?). Proud seizes this opportunity to suddenly declare martial law, imprison Libero and Ignacia, and strong-arm Watson into giving him the other key.

Proud activates the Iksion, which causes the starship’s bridge to turn into a microwave and vaporize Proud and flunkies (who could’ve guessed that would happen). The planet starts to self destruct as Antoinette rushes to the control room. Luckily, only her clothing is vaporized (*cough*), as she yanks out the two keys, strangely causing the Iksion to turn into a giant green klieg light (wtf?). Apparently mortally fried by the experience, Antoinette falls insensate at the feet of a befuddled Eric. Time for a coffee break.

“Mm! how sweet the coffee tastes, more delicious than a thousand kisses, mellower than muscatel wine. Coffee, coffee I must have, and if someone wishes to give me a treat, ah, then pour me out some coffee!” -- Coffee Cantata, J.S. Bach/ C.F. Henrici
