Kokuyou is a obsessive writer and life-long loner. When his scientist friend gives him a "replica", a boy android, he doesn't want it. Will Shiro's puppy like devotion be what Kokuyou really needs?

This volume consists of a three chapter story about Kokuyou/Shiro (Etowa), a oneshot about Saeki/Hachi (Sweetoy), an unrelated story (Vampire no Kareshi) and an Etowa extra.

a boring story, art I don't like and terrible composition/'direction' - all of this makes it really hard to read. And 'bad direction' is not a subjective thing - the sequence of events is so badly outlined, so badly laid out, that it's really hard to follow the story. And it's also very sketchy in a meaning that it doesn't pay enough attention to its scenes, the narrative just jumps around a lot. In the end, the boring story is not enough to make me want to muddle through.

Actually quite original in a way

So to clear things up, I am NOT a fan of sci-fi generally speaking. Have never been and will never be, that's for sure. That said, there are few exceptions where I could try to digest it when the nonsense part doesn't play a significant role and things are actually feasible. Surprisingly I quite like the idea behind the main story, I thought it was somewhat inspiring and to be honest quite original. Although with the setting premise I'd like the psychological department to be developed more - I mean it was like the golden chance to make one angst-and-psychology-filled story that could last for a lifetime - a cuter and more light-hearted series like this would not hurt once in a while. The one-shot didn't offer much though, thus I couldn't really care less about it.

Really nice story, and it isn't at all graphic so don't be put off by the shotacon warnings.
Chapters 1-3 focus on Kokuyou x Shiro; my favourite couple in this collection! Shiro is adorable.
Chapter 4 is a oneshot called Sweetoy which is all about Saeki x Hachi; I like how mature Hachi is and I loved what Saeki says at the end about the whole master thing, it was so sweet!
The other oneshot, Vampire no Kareshi, is also quite good. I liked the vampire himself, although I felt the whole romance aspect was really rushed. Also as the person below mentioned, the art is bizarre in this one... the seme looks like he has an adult's face on a child's body... if it wasn't for that, I'd like it more.
Then finally there's the extra at the end, focusing on the main 2 couples, which was quite funny ^__^ I loved how both the etowa's acted in this; Shiro for being so ridiculously cute (the thing about his tastebuds made me "aww" lol) and Hachi for getting his own kind of revenge XD Also it shows there's some hope for Ao! I'd really like to see him get his own sweet love story. Such a shame there's no continuation.
All in all very cute characters, there isn't a single one I disliked. Also the art is lovely, quite simplistic in a way but still very easy on the eyes (with the exception of the seme in Vampire no Kareshi -- he looks too weird)

These stories were soooo sweeet. I feel like that if saeki's etowa could grow he'd become seme in that relationship and the main's story's couple was so sweet. <3333 the seme in the vampire oneshot looked funny though. Is it supposed to be a kid or something?? ooooh and that one etowa whose owner killed herself found a boy blowing bubbles :") I WANT THEM TO HAVE A STORY.

Warning: Mild shota and shota references in the first story. Although the character is an android his body is that of a young boy... but the sexual content is very brief and quite light, so read at your own discretion *didn't know until she'd already read it*...

Anyway the first story, i didn't think i'd like it, but actually, it was really good. Its nice how things develop between the characters and its got a bit of a heart wrench in the second-to-last chapter but it all ends happy so i can't complain. Overall a good story.

The vampire one shot i really enjoyed XD so cute and really quite funny.

Vampire Boyfriend [oneshot]

I've only read the oneshot Vampire Boyfriend that was included in this as an extra story, so my comments here pertain entirely to that. [The concept of the main story didn't appeal to me thus why I didn't read it. I'm sure it isn't bad.]

Anyway it's a cute story. I liked how the vampire got excited during the [very non-graphic] love making session and bites his boyfriend! [lol!]

This was a great manga. The idea was pretty original, and the characters were funny and crazy and a little sad too, but not for long. The only thing I can't figure out is who the kid is on the last page of the "extra." He doesn't show up anywhere else in the book. Maybe the author was setting things up for a sequel.
