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.

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

It's like a slice of life high school sci-fi. Sweet, innocent, and doesn't rush things, and to top it off there's some interesting sci-fi plot dynamics and excitement here and there. Nothing serious or too terrible, but it keeps the pace going. I did think it got a little tedious at times, but the main character's quirky naivete and curiosity kept it cute and funny enough that I didn't mind too much. I loved the parts involving Chris because they were the most interesting (besides the ending) and I also really liked Asao's character. He makes a nice foil for Odette and his huge reactions to her strange questions are funny. The art's also pretty nice. So overall it was not the most exciting or innovative or intense in any way but it was a refreshingly safe and sweet read.

for those that get tired of mainstream this is a must read. Lots of character development and the characters are not annoying all the time. The romance is subtle and you can't tell who someones going to end up with, if they end up with someone at all.

I think I'm the only one who isn't satisfied with this manga. Sorry. I do admire Odette's urge to want to be more human, and she's very innocent about it. She's quite cute. However, I was hoping more of an adventure manga than a coming-of-age one. I much prefer Julietta's Kamisama Hajimemashite so much more.

One might think that the whole android getting accustomed to living in a human world theme is unoriginal and cliched, but I didn't find it so at all when reading the manga, and our heroine Odette explores her world with such innocence, sweetness and humour that you can't help enjoying the story with her. The characters are interesting and delightful, and the story is surprising and never dull. I love the romance in this manga, it is innocent, heartfelt, and sweet, just like the manga =)

Because its so unique in so many ways, when I read, I actually worry that it's not completed and that I won't be able to read more. The characters are extremely entertaining that I sometimes literally laugh out loud.

It's been a long time since I read a manga, and I'm glad this is the first manga I've read in a while to remind me why I liked reading these in the first place.

This manga is so cute and very funny. I definitely recommend it.

I have nothing but praise for this author and her series! I loved them all; Akuma to Dolce is sweet and lighthearted, while Kamisama Hajimemashita is spine-tingling and filled with adventure.

Karakuri Odetto though, is on a class of its own.

I'd expected a non-likeable, beautiful, flawless robot (read Chii); what I eventually unravelled, was a young girl set to discover the world with newborn eyes, a beautiful shoujo heart, and a face that gradually learns to express joy and anger, fear and sadness. The change takes place subtly, and the author uses both humans and robots, even animals and situations, to nurture Odette's growing emotions and heart. For all her superhuman strength and her oddities, Odette is nothing more than a normal girl, who feels satisfaction and happiness when her goodwill is well received, and dejection when she realizes that she appears 'un-cute' in the eyes of guys.

The romance is very subtle, in the way that real world romance occurs, sometimes. It's not to say that I didn't enjoy it, though it does leave me pining for more. The author does have several male characters waiting in line for Odette, if but to spice up the story, though Odette clearly has a choice already made-up in her robotic-shoujo mind. Which, of course, is revealed to the audience way before Odette realizes it herself. I've read up till vol 5 and to be honest, I've got a biting suspicion that there will be no eventual couples, so don't place your hopes too high, folks! Be there for the wondrous joy that comes with newfound hopes and realizations, and the intricately woven threads of youth, kinship, and young, blossoming love.

a 9 rating, only because I'm a hardcore romantic at heart and would normally not read something that doesn't revolve around romantic relationships =3

I love the relationship between the two androids.
It is incredibly sweet. What a heart-warming story, and what likable characters
