Synopsis

The skilled craftsman Kuroda created artificial humans called Hybrid Child—creatures who are neither machines nor dolls, but rather a reflection of the love shown to them. While they can feel human emotions and have their own consciousness, they are not real humans and require love to grow.

Kotarou Izumi is the young heir to the noble Izumi family, so it is frowned upon when he brings an abandoned Hybrid Child he found in the garbage into their household. His family even attempts to throw away Hazuki—Kotarou's name for the Hybrid Child—multiple times when he is not paying attention. But through overcoming these obstacles, their love and the bond connecting them grow stronger. However, ten years pass before a horrifying realization dawns on them: a Hybrid Child might not have an endless life span.

Hybrid Child is a collection of three short love stories, depicting the relationship between the artificial humans and their owners.

It really hasn't been long since I've been into the whole "Yaoi/shounen ai" fandom, but so far I've became a dedicated fan, having gone as far as reading/watching almost every manga/anime/ova the fandom has to offer, and among them, "Hybrid Child" holds a special place in my heart.

Story: (9)
The story is somehow different, I'm used to yaoi being placed in a much lighter atmosphere so hybrid child presented a pleasantly different feel than the other shows.
The show focuses on three different stories that are not connected to each other, each one of them tell us more about the relationships between men and their ...

Could you love a doll long enough to watch it grow up like a normal human?

The hybrid child is a doll that grows older when their owner shows him (because the dolls we are shown in the anime are, of course, male due to the yaoi aspect) love. In this anime, we are given three stories of their owners loving their Hybrid Child.

The three stories effectively show the bonds between humans and their hybrid child. In the final story, it becomes more of the bond between two human men, one of whom is the creator of the hybrid child. We get a sense of ...

I'm only writing this review because
a) this anime doesn't have too many reviews
b) everybody's gushing way too much over it.

As a casual yaoi fan, I can see why this anime would excite fujoshis - it's everything they would want, without the smut and cheap tactics animators often stoop to using to please their fan base. I went in completely blind, not knowing what the anime was and it pleasantly surprised me. I would suggest you to go in blind as well; that's the best way to enjoy it.

But if you're still interested in knowing what it's about, here it is (without spoilers):
Set in late ...
