I don't believe you have read it till the latest chapter. It's anything but cliched. Drawing comparisons to Mahoromantic is fine. Both have a robot soldier girl with limited lifespan staying with the main protagonist.
The similarities end there though.
one word: generic. More than one word: It's pretty much the standard nerd coward meets hot girl who can fight. Not really interesting besides the above average art (the color artwork are amazing however). My final rating? "meh" :\
lolz to the max
imercinary.... you stole the words from out of my mouth.... but later on this story becomes seriouse and the male lead character is not as winy as you would think.... this guy is as strong of a character as the wemon..... but he is not over powered (you will see his strong and determined side at around chapter 19.... thats when he becomes cool).... i like that aspect because not everything is layed out in the beginning, you discover more of each character the more you read. if you stop at a chapter you will regret it... at furst it was more of a comedy but soon turns into pure action.
the searies is a great read and i cant wait for chapter 21.... i strongly recomend this to all comedy/romance/action fans
i would rate it a 10 but the story is slow at first so i give it half a point short of 10

Not bad at all
Excellent art. Please note that the other reviews are very old and does not really serve justice to the piece due to early reviewing. There are numerous twists in the story,with good development. And hardly anything to do with school chapter 18 onwards.
Great art but the story is pretty much generic especially after chapter 16 where i expected that sth better might happen, it returned to being a school manga.As many previously said it is a mixture of many previous series but it doesn't have the depth of Koukaku Kidoutai neither as funny as Mahoromatic.It looks more like to full metal panic that i didn't especially like (unlike fumoffu which is funny as hell).Anyway, considering the name of the manga it will probably unfortunately continue to take place on a school.

love his only regret
it would be mine to, chapter 5=Ouch...i flinched awww she looked cuter with short hair... the female lead is cool, but the male is typical winy lead that doesn't like violence that you get whenever there is a tough female lead...sigh

starts off better than it is
Great art when it comes to displaying the girl. She's drawn sexy without ridiculous proportions.
The premise might be similar to mahoromatic but the execution is so different. More down to earth and a lot more brutal. The girl is one stone cold killer and character designs are all toned down. I only wished that there were a few more relaxed chapters.
its like a duplicate
well, so far the story its good but.... its almost an exact copy of mahoromatic, like for example that she will stop functioning in 380 days, and in mahoromatic it was around 370... but this bee girl its cute so i will keep reading lol
its okay but hopefully will get better
not sure where the story will head to but i gotta give this love for the great art that it has and the bug-looking metal suit abilities and general look is pretty awesome, so i hope this heads to a good direction

if this was my first book...
It's a mix of many things. One of them, for sure, would be Koukaku Kidoutai, and another good candidate would be Evangelion. You might also want to include Saishuu Heiki Kanojo and Zero in. Put bluntly, it simply possesses some aspects of every popular (?) manga out there. The art, however, is one of the best I've ever seen. If you liked Zetman-like art and Noblesse's kinda organization scheme (government, crime, etc) and you can bear with, if not enjoy, pathetic, ubiquitous main protagonist creating his harem ring. You would definitely want to try this one.
