Graphics Rating: 3/5
Plot Rating: 3/5
Opinion: Graphics are so-so. Tokyopop has been hawking this new series ever since their
gravy train series Fruits Basket ended. This is supposed to be the new face of shoujo. I was definitely on the edge for a while wither to read or not because it looked a little shounen to me, even with the pink cover. I have deduced that it is the graphics that are very shounen. Although it is from the same author as Akuma to Dolce, I found Akuma to be more feminine.
Plot. Good things. I think this is a very thought provoking story. I meant he robot thing has been done many times but this is a little different and worth a read. It’s always interesting to see how unreal characters are developed from series to series. (What they can and can’t do.) There are a few parts that actually make you think about what it means to be a human. Odette is just so sweet. Not to mention this series can be VERY funny when it wants to be.
Bad. Well the graphics throw me for a loop. As well I have to complain about the lack of romance. I know it focuses on other things but I LOVE me some romance! If you are a HUGE fan of romance there is very little in this series. A very light series.
Overall? Very interesting.
Final Rating: 3/5
Extra: From the creator of Akuma to Dolce
