TT.TT LOVE IT so much that I cried at the end

It's so great, that it is the first manga that makes me cry. I used to listen asian music while reading this manga, and years after I read it, everytime I hear Stella Huang - Wen Shi De Hua (Marmalade Boy) it reminds me of this lovely and funny manga. The most interesting part of this manga is Night, he is somewhat naive but when it comes to sex, he is Ph.D

I love the whole story!! I really feel in love with Night! But The ending... it just really pisses me off. Even though I was crying at the end too. Thats why I gave it one Point down, because I really liked the whole story. But the ending... uuuggggghhhh ;A; IT'S HORRIBLE .

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.

But the ending made me cry. I really liked all the characters, wished I could have seen a bit more development in some of the characters and it felt like the side characters had some untold stories to tell. I still gave it a 10 anyway, because I was glued to the story until the finish.

I thought the story was pretty good although their were a few times that the Riiko kinda annoyed me. I am an emotional person and this definetly had an ending that made me cry.

The manga is cute but I just found myself supporting the protagonist with another guy, not the doll. Maybe he's just too perfect, despite that being the premise? The other characters just interested me more than he did.
Still love the manga and recommend it to anyone who is into shoujo.

Shortcomings

I think the author did a rushed job with this series. While keeping the same number of volumes, some of the irrelevant arcs could have been skipped. The series also does not focus at all on Night's near-human transformation. Also, there was no romantic progression between Night and Riiko. Riiko fell in love right away and stayed that way till the end. In such respect, the live action drama does a far better, might as well say an amazing job in overcoming these shortcomings. Riiko cannot accept Night because it's a robot and takes a while before accepting him only when she realizes that he has overcome his programmed self. Night, on the other hand, is always struggling to overcome his robotic nature to get close to Riiko. His struggle and eventual success in developing human ego, and his efforts to make Riiko happy are what's missing in the manga. In the end, it even makes Riiko lament that she should have been nicer to Night and understood his feelings sooner. All these events and progression makes the ending far more sadder than the manga. Of course the manga came first and the author didn't have this in mind, but if you watch the drama the manga just appears too bland.

This is the manga that swept me into the world of manga and anime. I have the whole series and it was just so fun and interesting that i would remmend anyone looking for a comedic love manga to read this one! It will hook you and then make you cry at the end. It was such a surprise. After reading this manga I wanted to go on a dates like they had! Still love the series so much and read it when the internet is down.

I can't really say much about this since I haven't read the manga in a year or two (I'm forgetful). The art was nice, I loved Night; the girl is a bit annoying. The next door neighbor is my favorite; sucker for those. The whole dating-robot was...unusual for me, so that's a first.
