I also want such an android boyfriend too!
Last chapter made me cry :S

Typical shoujo story with overly dramatic little twists and the typical secret admirer. However this one is done very adorable, I guess its pretty art and fanservice added to that. wink

Because of only 6 vols it can be read in one day or a night.

i kind of liked how it was shorter than most mangas I read. I was very depressed by the ending though. The robot thing made the whole manga more interesting and better, so I don't resent it. But basically, Riiko is saying she likes a robot more than a human, which is ok since night is so hot anyways lol >_<
Soshi was a little annoying to me, but he was the guy who's always there. I just didn't see enough character besides kindness in him...
I don't like Riiko. She can't decide between the two which is annoying, and Night is always sacrificing his happiness for her. Same goes for soshi. But Riiko isn't so bad that I want to kill her like some other manga chars...

[edit by mod,potential spoilers]

This is my one of my utmost favorite of Watase Yuu's manga. It's not my favorite, but of Watase-sensei's work, I liked this one the most. It is sweet and moving. While the premise was kind of silly, the development of the story made you want to read more and more-- mostly to find out what would happen between Riiko and Night.

I rooted for Soushi, mostly because I like my bishounen in glasses and thought that Soushi would be good for Riiko since Night was a robot after all. But as the relationship between Riiko and Night progressed, I started to become more accepting of them and thought that they were very good together.

The ending is very sad and touching. I almost cried and think that my eyes even got a bit watery. I would recommend this manga to anyone.

The beginning and part of the middle was amusing and realistic, then it started to get annoying, and the ending was disappointing. When it got to the middle, it seemed that the author was rushing to get each chapter done. Each chapter lacked something. And I know the mangaka created Riiko to be the way she was, foolish, but it still irked me. Night's a robot, go for Shoshi. I admire both Night and Shoshi for his dedication to Riiko.

I was sad the whole time while reading this manga because i had the feeling the ending was going to be sad so i never even finished it because it was to much for me. Don't get me wrong it is one of my favourite manga.

when i first saw this one i thought that this one will certainly have an unhappy ending because of the human x robot relationship, but in the end i figured out that even though it didn't had happy ending Watase made your reading worthwhile. this manga maybe cheesy at times, but that's the part that your gonna love about it i recommend it to those people out there who want to have good cry!! a definite must read!!!

The beginning was humourous and the end was bittersweet. There were times when the main character's indecisive tendencies got on my nerves. At times the story seemed a little drawn out with repetitive themes. Generally speaking, though, I felt the message this manga presents is a nice one and the characters were easy to like. Even though a lot of people seem to have disliked the ending, I felt it was perfect. I think this manga was worth the read, although it hasn't become an instant favourite of mine.

After all the comedy and romance, we can't deny it to thread on deeper into emotions and realizations. This one definitely made me ponder how we value things and people around us. This would be one of those mangas that I would not forget.

Well the ending for suck at first, but the I thought of it and it was really realistic. The whole story was really addicting to read, lets say I finished the entire thing in 1 day. I just wish it was longer...
