After the rejection, she is wandering in the park, and finds a ringing cellpho
I'll write more when my editing mode hits.
Fly my Pretties! Fly!
I feel for poor Soushi. In that aspect, it must be really hard to keep seeing the woman you love every day (within your grasp)...especially when you have to keep watching her blantantly throwing herself all over another "man". What makes that even harder for Soushi ...more
I have such mixed feelings now. Despite this being a small book a lot happened in it! Between Mika and then NIGHT AND SOSHI AND HOW THIS VOLUME ENDED OH MY GOD.
I don't know if I want Soshi or Night with Riiko. But I really do hope all three get a happy ending by the last book in this series. I kind of agree Soshi seems more fit for Riiko and Night is after all, not human but that's besides the point; Night is the dream man. And the fact that he wanted to be mo ...more
Really good story - about love between human and android. About feelings, that the mechanical thing can feel. And sad ending :<
Also her friend is a horrible person, and I'm glad the truth came out in volume 2 right away, she's psychotic.
I'm sad that Night has been... well reprogramed, but I really think Riiko should get her head out of her butt and date Soshi.
This series follows the main character, Riiko Izawa, a girl who just wants to find the ultimate boyfriend. After a series of many rejections, Riiko hits a low point and signs up for a 3-day free trial for a mysterious company called Kronos Heaven, who sells "lover figures" (basically a mix between a robot and mannequin). Riiko naively orders a figure, picking out qualities or "personality features", that she considers to make for an ideal boyfriend. When the order arrives, Riiko's skept ...more
This volume throws one surprise after another at you which is great. Firstly it turns out that (view spoiler)[Riiko’s best friend, Mika, actually never liked her and was just friends with Riiko because it made her look good. But even worse, all the boys that have rejected Riiko in the past because once Mika found out who Riika liked she moved in a ...more
After the setting up of last volume, this volume feels a lot deeper and engaging. It's a little less silly, and a little more serious (though the silliness is still there in places).
There is a lot more drama in this volume, and the ...more
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 ...more
For some unknown reason I'm not a fan of Watase's manga.
This is a sad thing because it's hard to find a manga author so prolific as to write so many different series' to like, love, or something in between. I have read volumes of her Alice 19th,and Ceres and in each series there is something...missing. I can't define it really, but it feels like if the book had a head, legs, or arms it would be missing one of them.
Watase has written a lot, and I wish so m ...more
I liked how much Soshi was in this volume. How he's really trying to put himself out there with Riiko about how he feels. Her reaction is actually quite funny after she's had to deal with a frank Night. I like how we learned that all is not final with Night and quite ridiculous hilarity ensues.
BOTTOM LINE: Fun, fluffy, no thinking involved!
I'm terribly sick of reading about girls who have NO idea that their cute guy friend has a crush on them. Such a tired cliché!
I hate myself a little right now.
Ok...Ok...I think I'm good now...
All that being said, I still find the story ridiculously adorable! It's got a lot of laugh-out-loud hijinks. I can't wait to read more.
Maybe I've just grown up since my FY days. Then again to this day I would still love to punch Yui in the face!
Again, this was an excellent manga from Yuu Watase. I'm still a team Soshi and the cover looks great. This volume was from chapter 7-12. And, unlike the first cover- this one isn't awkward! :) A quck, cute read, I highly recommend it.
I'll keep reading of course, but this series is not destined to be one of my favorites.
