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

There's a lot of greatness to this series. Odette is such a sweet, hilarious character—I love her straightforwardness coupled with her naïvety as she learns about the human world. Telling the story from her unusual perspective allows for many interesting relationship dynamics between the various characters, and lets the reader notice things about humanity along with Odette. The art is a fun style that somehow works perfectly for the subject of an artificial human/android.

The story/stories have a perfect balance of episodic and overarching narrative—there are many elements of the story that continue and character relationships that develop, but each chapter is somewhat self-contained and provides a satisfying resolution. This is a manga I read last (when catching up on releases of multiple series) because it has a nice way of wrapping things up and leaving me happy and fulfilled.

All those good things they said I agree with. But I would like to add one more point.

Manga, in way quite like novel, is a way to explore the future. Through manga we imagine and be prepared for the strange, the uncertain, the unpredictable. Karakuri Odette touch some sensitive topic like AI development, participation of android to human life and robot's rights. In its own way it's dealing with them quite admirably.

So far I really like it. Gorgeous drawings, and better yet, not the typical robot-human story! Its more sci-fi roots shoujo based, looking at the psyche and interactions of a robot whose not flawless and metal at heart but still reasonable and fascinating. The lack of blatant romance and cliched creator/owner-robot relationship is a major plus too.
