Saotome Kazuya is a computer whiz. One day his friend Nanbara, threatens him with a computer virus. Trying to stop the virus, Kazuya ends up making a special order. May is a cyberdoll that arrives at his door a few minutes later and she is 1/6th the size of a normal person, which makes for many awkward situations.

This show is all about moe.

The story is nothing special by any means, its mostly just one of the "day to day life" of the characters with random things happening here and there. Most of the enjoyment in this show comes from the relational battles and character interactions, and of course everything being uber moe.

The art is done pretty good, all the characters look well done. There aren't a whole lot of scene changes so there isn't a whole lot of backgrounds or moving animation sequences but for what there is, it all looks good. Lots of bright and happy colors to read more

For being such an old anime I surely did enjoy it. It's pretty much your typical harem anime, except it's with Cyber Dolls. The synopsis did a pretty good job explaining the first episode. One of Kazuya's enemies (who is pretending to be his friend) gives him a CD with a virus on it. But the virus unintentionally leads him to a cyber-doll website where he accidentally orders a cyber doll called May. May turns out to be a tiny little maid that has limited battery power. After a day or so, the delivery person comes back and requests Kazuya to pay 1.45 million Yen read more

I personally loved this anime + the OVA (For some reason it counts as episode 11)
The only reason i'm giving the story a 6 is because it didn't get too dramatic until the second half of the series.

the sound was just phenominal (sorry can't spell that) The Opening theme and Ending theme really gave it that extra push!

A Recommendation for all Harem / Ecchi Fans out there!

It’s rather cute in a way, though full of fan service. They do a lot of panty shots along with dressing scenes. Because of this, I wasn’t able to get fully into the story line like I wanted but it also didn’t seem to know exactly what it wanted to do. I felt the story went all over the place until they finally figured out something to do at the end. The poor guy ends up getting a cute girl that will help him with everything he needs. I have never actually been fond of the story line but at least I could stand this read more

Persocon = Cyber-Doll, helping "toys" that can help their lords. In that sense, they have similar motives throughout both shows.

Anime: Love Hina
Both series focus around a kind hearted guy, who just can't seem to catch a break. In both series they meet up with that "special girl", who drastically changes their lives.

However MANY other girls are thrown into the picture to draw the two main characters away from each other.
