I must say, I LOVE this series over all, but this last volume was a bit disappointing. Not only because the majority of the volume is 2 other bonus stories (which were okay I'll probably put my thoughts about them at the end of this review) but because the ending wasn't as good as I'd hoped. I admit, I did love Night even if he was a robot and wanted them to end up together. Seriously, this series was already sci-fi enough, so I kind of wanted for him to magically turn human or something when th ...more

What a disturbing ending. I mean, really? She picks the robot? The ROBOT. Are we seriously not going to talk about the fact that he is a MACHINE? Meaning of course that he 1) Can't grow old with her 2) Can't ever have a normal relationship with her or her friends or her family (do they really think no one is going to notice that he can't age/eat/sleep?) and 3) HE CAN'T LOVE. "Oh, but they kept talking about how he broke all the rules to be with her, that goes way beyond the normal devotion for t ...more

Read this during my undergrad years, i remember bawling my heart out at the ending of this manga! Took me so long to recover! Haha. Yuu Watase's pieces are almost always tearjerkers and i love her for it! Her Fushigi Yuugi series is my absolute favorite! :)

Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. :'(
OMG this is soooo saaaad. Even though I like Soshi more than Night I cried so much in the end -- starting the last chapter actually. Because I'm already anticipating that Night will shut down. T_T
This will definitely make you cry. But anyway I really like the story.. it's so cute and funny. I love this!.. the first manga I read. ;)

This was a wonderful ending to an exciting series. Night and Soushi finally reached an agreement, through their mutual love for Riiko, that they would both take care of her, no matter what. Sadly, even though Riiko finally made love to Night and became his "complete and true" lover, Night still knew that his days were numbered. Night knew that he must leave Riiko completely in Soushi's hands after his demise, and he was finally confident in said choice.
Soushi has gone away to live in S

Volume arc 1.5 stars; only 3 star because I loved the bonus stories. The main series is a 2.5 star. Mainly because of the premise and the two male characters.

Loved Aromatic and I Won't Let You be a Star - the 2 extra stories that fleshed out this volume. One was about a ghost whisperer and the other was about a pheromone ability to match couples. Both were very cute and I can see this mangaka is best at the premise ideas rather than the little plot ideas.

I love the idea of Absolute Boyfriend but

The author couldn't make a decision on how to end her love triangle, so she devised a way to avoid choosing and just end things out of the blue. This was by no means an intellectual series, but I expected better from her. It's a cop out, and despite the satisfying size of the physical book, unrelated stories fill over half of this volume, bloating it into the proper size for a graphic novel. A warning on the cover might have mitigated some of my rage at this discovery, but getting to the "halfwa ...more

How could you do this to my poor heart!? I'll admit I was torn between Night and Soshi throughout the novel, but when she finally chose I was really happy and thought that her and Night would live happily ever after. I felt bad for Soshi, but I assumed it would happen like that anyways (he had like all the qualifications of the typical 2nd guy). I really didn't expect for Night to shut down T^T. Argh, this is my irrational emotions talking. This made me bawl at like 3 in the morning af
i just read my review on volume 1 and i think it was alright, so im going to write a review on the last volume of this awesome manga!
I'm sad that i don't remember when i got this manga but all i remember was was getting it when Angus and Robertson was closing down and I went to the sale, which was when i was in primary school :)
This was my first manga that I ever purchased and the first manga that I ever completed the whole series.

I loved this manga so much but the ending was quite
The last book in the series. Good things happened but at the same time, heart wrenching depressing things happened too. I don't really want to say, as that will spoil the ending. Just know that I cried at the end, and if you got as into the series as I did, you probably will too. The two after stories were short and sweet. One had to deal with ghosts and the other about a boy with an amazing talent. All in all, this is definitely a series I'd reread over and over again. Actually, that's true abo ...more

Fed up with rejection, heart-broken Riiko signs up for a free trial of the Nightly Lover 'figure'. The next day, a cute naked guy is delievered to her apartment. Riiko finally has a boyfriend - one who will cost her a million dollars if she fails to return him on time.

This is the final volume in the series, and to be honest it wraps up the only way it really can. It's kind of a bittersweet ending. The first time I read it, in my teens, I was DEVASTATED. Reading it now, I can see it was the only
In this short, adorable shojo manga, shy Riiko Izawa is having boy troubles and decides to go online and order her very own robot boyfriend.

What's the difference between this and all the other shojo mangas? Well, there really isn't any. With it's touching slice-of-life story, complete with humerous moments and a bitter-sweet ending, Yuu Watase brings us a manga that revolves around a love triangle but also includes some loveable characters and some impressive character development.

Riiko Izawa

Like I said in my review of volume 5:

wait... you know what?

*pant* Ok, glad I got that off my chest.

This volume was a huge slap in the face for two reasons
1. Too bloody short. Over half of it contains other separate stories

Seriously, the handful of pages devoted to the conclusion of this manga were extremely lacking. Riko rejects Soshi (as revealed in V.5.) then because she's SOOO in love with Night, she (view spoiler)
When you want a boyfriend none are around, that is just how Riiko feels. On the path of desperation she signs up for a free trial for a robotic boyfriend. What can go wrong right? Nope, wrong! Riiko receives the extravagant Night, a hot and sexy man that only wants to please her.

Seriously this is one of the best manga I have ever read! It is filled with romance and comedy and enjoyable characters. I fell in love with every aspect of this series right from the beginning. There is an interesting l
Hogy az én szívem mindig a mangák fölött szakad meg…

Ez nagyon szemétség… 10 éve is hüppögtem és most is itt hüppögök egy manga felett… Se könyv, se film, se nyálas-halálos-haldoklós-romantikus semmi, de a mangák azok igen. Ennek meg még a végére is emlékeztem… és még így is. Taps…

Ettől még persze jó az eleje-közepe-vége a sztorinak. Aranyos, kicsit nyálas, enyhén sírós, kis egynapos kaland.

Mixed emotions.

Ended rather abruptly. (view spoiler)

All the feels while reading this manga was just incredible.
I was rather surprised that the final episode of Absolute Boyfiend is actually only half a volume long, the rest being taken up with some rather interesting short stories based around the theme of love that unfortunately, are rather more enjoyable in my opinion than the conclusion to Watase's series. Despite the kick in the stomach the ultimate volume is, the pain that should have been felt was somewhat diminished by the rather fluffy two volumes proceeding that seemed to merely provide padding ...more

I was really disappointed with this book! It's so misleading. It's not even a whole volume of Absolute Boyfriend. Only half this book is the actual story. The rest is two short manga stories which are not even that great. It states this no where on the book!

Riiko and Night finally have sex which makes Night feel better for a little while. Soshi goes to Spain to live after being rejected by Rikko. Then Night starts malfunctioning and he DIES! Can you belive that!? Yuu has kille
Nidah (SleepDreamWrite)
So the series, has its moments, can be funny, cute moments and Night. Then you have a love triangle and the romance drama, etc. I kind of liked the series but found the volumes to be okay. The ending was okay too I guess.
Loved the short stories following the conclusion, particularly the incense one. All in all, a pretty sweet series, but without the depth of Chobits to address the "love a machine" idea.
Marwa AlBoeisa
This was a very strange manga..

It made me laugh a lot but a ninja a cyborg and a weirdass girl.

This was just a lot of weird and a lot of laughs

Idk what else to say lol
She chose THE SEX DOLL over THE PERSON WHO HAS LOVED HER SINCE THE WERE CHILDREN. Why would you do that author that creepy and not fun at all, also there's a cop out ending.

Love the series. Cute characters!
