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

Sweet

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.

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.

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.

It had a great start but didn't follow through very well. Ending was disappointing. Art was cool.

(Spoiler has beginning to end)

A very smart almost perfect human-like android is made by a young professor of science. She decides that she wants to go to school after reading a school girl magazine.. The scientist allows this.. She ends up instantly meeting girl friends.. But there is also a troublesome bit she ends up bumping into.. And little do they both know how close they will become... Later an assassin android is send to kill her professor.. But the professor found out and put a stop to it.. He then turns the boy into a proper android sort of like Odette.. Chris and odette become close as well. There is different series of events that happen that slowly makes her more and more human.. She goes through the whole manga pretty much in love with Asoa but being an android I guess it's not possible and in the end there is an android that is pretty much just like her and wants her to marry him.. But she is saved by Asoa that to the very end doesn't want to admit feelings towards an android.. So it ends with him graduating and her starting her last year there... That's it...
I think it's stupid that Asao is so abusive to her even if she is an android... And the enough should and could have been better. On the plus side it really makes a person feel for her.

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)

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"

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 =)
