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.

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.

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...

the storyline is unique and was very good too... but the ending just sucked, big time. that's why it's only a 9/10

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.

I rate this manga a four ONLY because the ending was good enough for me: pretty tragic. did not match this manga, which throughout the whole thing was a girl's imagination about the perfect man. She was having fun yet she had to work to have him, but the story doesn't grab hold of my attention tight enough. I don't like this manga at all.

I really liked the humor at the beginning and the premise of the story. The ending was touching but most of the events were too contrived for me to enjoy. The whole premise of having a robot lover (from the future?) is too unrealistic and leaves way too many plot holes. Still, the story is quite moving and it was an enjoyable read overall.

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.

[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.
