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.

A robot in the human world, trying to live a human life. Makes you think of Chobits doesn't it? Anyways, although it seems similar, it's not. I actually like the flow of this manga, and each chapter is touching, to say the lease. It's an awesome manga. =3

The summary doesn't even do justice to how incredible this manga is. Very moving piece, that first chapter. And the second one is touching, as well. It's amazing how the mangaka gives life to such mundane questions that we humans at most times take for granted. I hope this develops to be a more amazing manga.
