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.

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.

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 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.

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 =)

I'd give this series a C+/B-. I remember reading it for the first time back when you could get new tokyopop titles at Borders bookstores, ha ha! Suzuki's drawings are a little rough in chapter one, but they improve. She says outright, and it is very clear that this story was simply meant to be a oneshot, and when she was told to make it into a series, she kind of made it up as she went along, which probably explains the "not" ending.
Of Odette's five potential love interests: Chris, Asao, Yukimura, Travis, and the professor (ok, the professor is more like her "father"),
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Odette does not end up definitively with any of them. In-story Asao has the most going for him, but he's apparently graduating and moving on, plus he's a human (that probably still likes her best friend). To my surprise, Suzuki reveals in the postscript that she planned for Odette to end up with Yukimura - who gets the least 'screen time' of any of the five - but that since he was unpopular with readers she wasn't allowed to do that, and then she basically had no idea what to do -__- .... so yeah... Personally Chris was my favorite character and I feel he was tragically underutilized because he kept breaking and needing repairs and then wouldn't be in the story for a long time.
Romance aside, with her robot protagonist it feels like Suzuki is trying to make some kind of point, though she doesn't seem to know what that is either. 'Robots have feelings too'? 'Humanity comes down to being able to understand each other'? 'Everyone just wants to feel accepted'? Who knows...

The art at the beginning is okay and gets a little better. For all that's worth, for what this manga intends to be, it could be a Masterpiece. I think this was the best story I've read till now about a robot trying to be human and it doesn't get too philosophical while doing it like other works out there, which makes it fresh and less intimidating.
It really makes wonder if a robot with emotions can exist and if it did, would it be like this. The only downside to me, is that it was a little too short and the characters interactions with each other could be more lasting. For example Asao was pretty much a protagonist and still he didn't appear as much time he should even though he was so much important to the MC which made the author draw a little vague ending.
Still this was one of the best character development I've seen till now,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the robot girl really turns human without even you noticing
which it's a really incredible feet to make a person think like that. This manga made me remember that film with Robin Williams where he was a robot trying to be human, just less depressing. To be honest you'll laugh a lot at the really small details of this work and the best is that you'll look forward to read the next chapter.
You should read, if you want a reason to, think of this as something different like a change of pace or if you are bored of the standard mangas, it's really worth it.

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.

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.
