*Contains a little bit of spoilers*

I decided to read Karakuri Odette because of Suzuki Julietta, hoping that it would be somewhat similar to Kamisama Hajimemashita. To those who came for this same reason, don't expect too much. Anyhow, let's get started with the actual review.

Story : 7/10

This is the only story that I've ever read that has androids/robots but isn't very sci-fi-ish. The story is more about innocence and discovering what it is like to be a human being. The usual topics like love, jealousy, friendship, yadda yadda are discussed. There's a teensy bit of romance as well.

I couldn't give a score higher than read more

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.

Now for read more

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

Starting with the positives: Karakuri Odette is an enjoyable read. The female protagonist is very likable, and is what makes this series truely shine. For the most part, it makes you want to continue reading, and only becomes draggy somewhere in the middle. Nonetheless, Karakuri is a simple, light hearted read. If you are looking for a shoujo with a serious romance (I'd go as far as to say that there is no romance in this series and it's more about Odette and her friends) and solid plot, then I'd suggest avoiding this series.

The negatives: My main issue with Karakuri, is obvious lack of read more
