Funny part is it's not a joke. They demo more androids each year instead of robots at the Japanese expos...and they just demoed a robot that can create it's own voice by using vocal structures[they built a synthetic neck and mouth with lips and tongue...]
They already had vocaloids. but they want the full Bicentennial Man. And computers are phasing out artists positions at anime studios. And it's not liek they paid them a living wage before for those Hollywood level tricks/creativity...[which is why I don't watch or pirate recent shows that they keep spewing out for profit while hosing all those potential Kubrick-esque Directors]
The world is hellbent on obsoleting people...
Soon there will be a robot, that watches anime, made by robots.
