Riko is hopeless when it comes to boys. That is, until she ends up with a robotic boyfriend who is programmed to be her perfect man! Of course, a robot is nothing compared to a real man… or is he?

I think this show will be sweet, a bit fun, but nothing remarkable.

Aibu Saki comes across as very childish, in both the roles I’ve seen her act in. Perhaps she is typecast, I’m not sure, and I’m not sure if it annoys me or not.

Anyway, I want to keep this separate from the manga, and enjoy it as a seperate entity. I think I will. There are some amusing bits, nothing really over the top funny, but bits that made me smile. Some parts felt a bit too over the top for me.

One part I did enjoy was the careful placement of scenery in certain scenes. (0_0)

I will enjoy the love triangle that is emerging. Or is that perhaps love square?

    zettai kareshi the dorama!!! i’ve heard of it being made into a series. i love the manga, it’s one of my absolute favs. =)

    *laughs hard at the nakedness of tenjou in the first pic XD*

    hmm… from the pics, i don’t think aiba really fits how i imagined riko to be. but i hope her acting’ll prove me wrong. =B

    ah, crappity crappity crap i must watch!!!
    …but… must… let… the season end first… T_T
    i can’t stand ongoing series, i get uberly stressed out… -_-

    Aiba isn’t really how I imagined her either, but the show is doing OK. I do like Knight and Soushi in this, but to be honest there is something about Aiba’s Riko that I don’t really like. However, the show is still enjoyable, and I do recommend you watch. For me, I can’t wait for it to air each week, but it is probably better for me to watch this way because other wise I’d watch them all at once and never get anything done!
