Hit or miss manga..

For me it was a hit smile MY second manga after reading Fruits Basket..
unlike many others, I was able to accept the fact that Night is a robot, and that's because I'm used to the anime/manga world where robots/aliens/ghosts/non-human creatures exist and follow the paths of humans like any other.....it just wasn't a concept that BOTHERED me much. I fell in love with Night even though he is programmed for that to happen xD, I can't remember feeling anything much for the female lead though....probably just passive acceptance. I really liked the art especially for the males, and it was a touching manga to the last chapter. The end was realistic and sad but I guess it really couldn't have ended in any other way. Besides, it was bittersweet and Yuu Watase definitely did a good job of letting readers remember it! If they had a typical cute ending, I would have forgotten it.

honestly, i don't like any of yu watase's works..trust me i tried reading a lot of her works but they were ALL the same to me. Her characters all look the same and her works are boring.. I'd only read this manga if i was extremely bored and wanted to kill time

As much as i disliked this manga, i ironically liked the drama. Which proves that the plot was good enough, but just failed to impress me in the manga.

The name of this manga attracted me and the premise kind of reminded me of Chobits. I was intrigued by the thought of that scenario from a female perspective, plus the naked character in the cover made me think, "hell yeah, Female POV Chobits plus sex, I'm in." Oh was I sorely mistaken.

Like many others on here I disliked the ending, but that's mostly because I read this stuff to get away from my miserable life and I try to live vicariously through these characters (and I'm sure to finally choose the love of your life only to lose him soon after must BLOOOOOW); so, yeah.

Even though I'm super emotional, I didn't find the ending as sad as I did annoying. I kinda felt like it was rushed, or that it happened too fast (or maybe it just felt that way since I just wanted to get to the end). The only part when I did cry was about the reference to Hachiko; now that's sad, lol. (Always makes me cry, just like Jurassic Bark T-T). The rest, not so much.

Like others I felt the story kind on dragged on a bit, some characters where underdeveloped and that Riiko was annoying at times (like her refusing to take advantage of Knight's "talents," I'd be all over that).

Speaking of which, I rushed through the whole thing specifically to get to the good bits, them f***ing. Boy was I unpleasantly surprised when I was presented with like 3 pages of implied sex and nothing more. I mad. Itís Twilight all over again, but thatís what I get for reading sh*t aimed at tweens and teens; I should stick to yaoi, or the very least josei and seinen.

In my and the mangaís defense I didnít know it was shojo or a tragedy, (things I probably should have looked up before I started reading, stupid me), so all these things that annoyed ME might be fine with others and they might get more out of it than I did.

Overall it was an entertaining read and I didnít dislike the ending, nonsensical situations and NO [explicit] SEX GODDOMOT, so much as to say I completely wasted my time.

I found about this from my sister, who was once a big manga fan, I find it really alright, nothing BIG or Special.

About the ending, i dont find it bad as some comments say it is. But thats just my opinion, even though it is sad for me it's still alright. C'mon a human and robot? the only way that a happy ending could happen is if a fairy godmother grant Night a wish to become human. So for a robot who can think for himself, he did pretty well. He asked someone to look after the girl he loves, someone who can really take care of her and someone who can or have the possibility to give her a future, family as such.. such things he can never provide her.

But hey thats just how i see it.

I quite liked this manga. As several shoujo mangas, it's full of clichés, but they are really well developed and nice. You don't feel like all the cliches are being rushed into the scene to please you. Instead, the story moves at a nice pace and makes you wanna keep on reading.

The idea of a girl having to choose between two seemingly perfect guys is quite repetitive in shoujo mangas, but I believe this is one of the stories in which it makes you really, really sad when the girl has to actually choose one. In several others is oh! - so - obvious who she is going to go for and the lack of feelings on the part of the rejected guy makes you feel like this cannot be real. Here it almost made me cry seeing how the rejected guy reacted.

I wouldn't praise the ending, 'cause I don't think I completely understood it. I don't like endings which don't clearly show you what's happening or who the main character is going to stay with. Here you can understand either that she is going to wait forever for the one guy or move on and go for the other one.

All the same, I would recommend this to shoujo manga readers who like sweet stories with a bit of drama and sci fi in it.

The first manga I ever read...

...So I'm quite biased. But this is different to most shoujo manga, and, actually, to most of Watase's work (she even said in a side-note in the manga that she didn't normally do just romance, there normally had to be some kind of other plot). I thought it was refreshing. I normally try to stay away from shoujo, but this one is definitely worth a read.

The art was stunning, the series was just the right length, and with just enough comedy to balance the drama. I did actually cry at times, just like a laughed loudly many times. I actually liked it so much that I bought the whole series.

Riiko is cute and funny without being a typical 'every-one loves me' character that seems to be so popular in the shoujo world (something that I really hate). Night is gorgeous and innocent, while Soshi is serious, and yet so sweet. Gaku was pretty awesome, too. It had some interesting sub-plots that, I was happy to find, were played out until the end.

did you even read it properly? She didn't 'end up' with Soshi, and Night was different to all of the other 'robots'. That fact played a massive part in the manga!

The whole idea of being in a dilemma about having to decide if you want to date robot boyfriend when there's a really hot guy living nearby who is very interested was just so ludicrous to me, and the ending was just so bad that I don't see myself ever wanting to reread it. Especially after having read something like Chobits, which also does the whole human/robot love and relationships far better if we're meant to take it seriously.

I read manga while listenening to "Only One" by Yellowcard during the sad moments. I think it was that was probably the main thing that made me cry at the end because the words of the song just fit so well with the manga. The only bad thing about it now is that I can't listen to that song anymore because it will cause my tears to well up in my eyes from thinking about this manga. May be because I'm sensitive. But I still recommend it nonetheless.
