this is a happy, light manga about a girl discovering herself. odette doesnt need to be a robot, an alien, time traveller, god etc could also stand in as someone who discover herself thus my usual irritation about artificial intelligence is swept away. it is also because her character is so charming, with the help of various smiling characters that this character driven manga make me smile the whole way. the only drawback of this manga is that it is too good but it is too short, i would love to journey together with her some more.

Story: 7/10 (pretty good concept, light-hearted w/ equal parts humor and heartwarming but don't expect closure in the end)
Art: 5/10 (flat but decent)
Characters: 9.5/10 (Unexpectedly great, esp. for the genre. Main character Odette is especially good)
Cliche Factor: 3/10 w/ 10 as extremely cliche (Some re-hashed jokes and the usual school scenarios, but characters were not stereotypical. Very refreshing read.)

This one tells a very likeable story about a robot girl trying to blend into a mostly human world. There is not much drama (for the most part) and the characters shown play well together, allthough, sometimes their character traits do not seem very plausible and just have to be taken as a given.

Talking of things that might have been better... art! Especially all the boys/men look just sooooo gay (I am not talking about sexual preferencesces here...) - all of them are suuuuperslender, painfully overstyled and look just so plain silly (forget your frigging hair stylists and find yourself some barbers)... it makes you wanna laugh... or puke... well, both would work, I guess. I mean, hey, even the assumedly bad bad deliquent guy looks like he couldn't harm a fly except for drowning it while spilling his Latte or crushing it with his iPad (which he had to lay on a table as it was too heavy for his skinny skinny arms).

But don't get the wrong idea - the art might annoy a bit, still, the story really is a nice one and worth reading!

This is a very good read but the ending is very unsatisfactory... there were so many things i wanted to read about i felt the story ended because the author felt its time to end it.. all in all thats not a bad thing but still its disappointing not being able to see Odette's life long quests ending sad i have a complaint about the art too, you can't tell the difference between robot and human emotions on the faces.. all humans also feel like robots because of this. if this was only true for Odette then it wouldn't have been a problem but even failure robots have as many emotions on their faces as humans (i'm sure you can make a good case even with this minor points but i felt as if this was mangaka's one of the first works so she tried to get away with less)
I feel like i only said bad things while its true there are some minor problems with presentation overall this manga is a good story you can read while relaxing. i laughed with Odette, i felt sad with her, i felt happy with her. If you want to spend a relaxing afternoon while reading something don't hesitate to pick this one up. You won't feel disappointed for 34 chapters (i still think it ended prematurely lol)

The way this manga was done can truly be called a masterpiece. The characters are compelling and there isn't one chapter that one, as a reader, can't help but feel the heart of their actions. This manga is just so wonderful. I was really satisfied with the ending, as it shows how one's journey doesn't stop with the protagonist finding love or some other fate.

This is something I read sparingly because I don't want it to end. It is intimate and sweet because it explores big feelings, and does it so successfully like all other Suzuki Julietta titles it's to keep for rainy days. Like the question of humanity, it's clear which side anyone would care to take, but we still wait to see how the series handles the answer. It cannot take us by surprise in the stories it tells, but how masterfully and sincerely it tells them.

I have very little problem with the art, because presentation -- panel layout, pacing, -- still triumphs.

Very good quick read

This is an extremely good, light and quick read on those boring Sunday afternoons. Characterization is very good, development of the protanganist is done very well: in a good pace and all characters are very likeable. Plot is probably not as deep as other mangas but it is quite original and it's very refreshingly light-hearted, humour is perfect! Art is also beautiful and all characters are uniquely drawn so it's easy to distinguish between each one. Also has a frustrating but very suitable and reasonable open-ended ending which is good for a light-read but I personally WANT ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIPS DAMNIT, this is just out of bias though, so even you loathe open-ended endings like me, try it!

Recommened this to everyone! I like how it's one of the few mangas that dont take "romance + robots = pedophiliac smut"

One of the better shoujo-s out there (Sweet, cutesy but deep)

If you're looking for a sweet, lighthearted but intelligent read, you could do much worse than Karakuri Odette. The romantic subplot, as already mentioned in the past comments, was subtly executed but satisfying nonetheless even for a hardcore romantic like me. The characters are funny, interesting and relatively 'unique' (by shoujo standards). And the art is nice, though I've definitely seen better, I'm satisfied that the mangaka's drawings were able to convey the different feelings & emotions of the characters.

This manga has a great story line. The ending was quite realistic, nothing too lovey-dovey, the idea of how it focuses more on the female lead slowly developing as she enters the human world is fantastic.

Sweet and ambiguous story

This is a sweet series which I enjoyed a great deal. I was expecting a little more action/adventure in it but came to love all the characters and really got into it about half way through. It's a little slow in the beginning but once you get to know the characters it breezes through and you're finished before you know it!
The art is clean and simplistic which makes a refreshing read. The length of 6 volumes is just about perfect for someone looking for a touching short story. The ending is lovely and allows you to draw your own conclusions, too smile
