Synopsis

Kuroda, the puppet master, invented the Hybrid Child, a specialized android that is neither a machine nor a real human being. Originally purchased by lonely rich people yearning for companionship, the Hybrid Child is able to grow like a human when showered with love and care by its master. Even though they are designed like dolls, they have consciousness and can feel all kinds of emotions.

Hybrid Child is made up of three very emotional and tragic love stories that explain the depth of a bond between a Hybrid Child and its owner.

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 read more

It is my first review so please don't expect much. I just couldn't leave this anime without proper attention as I really want other to enjoy it. i fully recommend it for all anime lovers even if you don't like shounen-ai genre, as the story doesn't necessarily point at romantic relationships but other kind of interactions between people and hybrids.

Story: first of all each episode concerns one story only so when u finish one it don't expect for continuation. first episode centers around first model of hybrid child and one hell of a handful noble. it is cute, funny and very dramatic (almost read more

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 read more

What can I say? Recommended? Absolutely yes!
In my opinion it is considered a masterpiece, I could not even wait for sub that I already have finished seeing in raw version. I read the manga in the past, but then upon hearing the news that it would become an anime I immediately had doubts, which instead have turned into satisfaction. It has really exceeded my expectations, despite already the manga was wonderful.

Start by saying that I absolutely prefer it to the other of Shungiku Nakamura ("Junjou Romantica" and "Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi"), perhaps because it is presented in a different tone. While the first two are romantic-comedy, Hybrid read more
