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 ...

Hybrid Child was a one-shot romance manga from 2005. It was written by Nakamura Shungiku. That's right, the same writer as Junjou Romantica, the worst shounen ai romance I've ever reviewed. About five years ago, Studio Deen released an OVA based off of it. You might wonder why I'm even giving it a chance, given Nakamura's other work but let me remind you that even Ikuhara Kunihiko has written bad stories before. And it is Valentine's week, so let's keep an open mind and check out some romance. Maybe this one is not rubbish.

The basic premise behind Hybrid Child is that the world has sapient ...

Preliminary (2/4 eps)
Hm. Okay. Be warned.
This is actually my first review, but I thought this warranted it. It was an okay watch for the first episode. It isnt great, but it's not horrible. Overall just kind of a mediocre and shallow depiction of a romance between two teens/young adults. That is- until halfway through episode 2. I entered this expecting a parent-child relationship. I mean, that is a type of love. But no. Adult initiates sexual contact with a child. Yes, I realize that the hybrid children or whatever are supposed to be objects and aren't human or whatever, but no plot conceits make this excusable.
