I don't like overly praising anime/manga or authors unless I really love it/their work, but I have to say that Suzuki Julietta has become one of my favorite mangakas because of her amazing works.

Story: Robots and Andriods have been done before, but somehow Suzuki Julietta's is different and much more intriguing. Of course it's the life of a robot but somehow it's all exciting and you become very touched when you read about the characters, especially Odette herself. ~

Art: The art is simple but somehow its still very beautiful

I have read a lot of robot themed manga, a lot of shoujo manga, a lot of fantasy monster race manga, and I have to say, this is one of, if not the best, manga I have read in those genres.

The art... is mediocre at best. It's typical shoujo, and I despise that art style. There are a few instances where it's not typical, but as I can remember less than 5 panels... I can't give it more. That said, the art wasn't offensively bad. The proportions and facial expressions weren't so out there that it ever took me out of the manga.

As I'm someone who hasn't read a whole lot of manga, I can't say you'll agree with the points I mention, but overall, I found Karakuri Odette to be an extremely enjoyable read.

To be honest, I picked up this manga because I found the premise interesting. I'll touch on this later but the primary reason I enjoyed it so was because of character exploration. If you like manga that explores characters, this is for you.


Firstly, the plot: It isn't heavy at all, it's a comedy after all, and this is something I really liked. The story itself starts out slowly and then gains read more

Android goes to highschool to check out some stuffs about humans.
Deals with a prosthetic-person, and how they adjust to their lives. Made In Heaven is a tragedy, and Katakuri Odette is comedy.

Both have similar art style and story pace.
Both stories are about trying to break out of their shells and improving their people-skills.
Both manga have robots as their main characters. Both robots want to look for the meaning of the same thing.
A cute, curious, young robotic girl goes through her life the best she can while learning and making friends and, maybe, more then friends. Chobits has more of a older and mysterious look whilst Karakuri Odette is more relaxing and funny feel. Both are amazing and worth you're time!
both are about androids living among people and falling in love
