Synopsis

In Oval City, where robots are commonplace and used as tools by humans for most basic tasks, Iris Rain Umbrella is an android who lives a carefree and happy life caring for her master, Dr. Wendy von Umbrella, the head of robotics research at Oval University. According to Wendy, she created Iris to take the place of her younger sister, who lost her life in an accident, and whose name and likeness the house robot shares.

Iris does the work of a maid in the von Umbrella mansion—shopping, cooking, and cleaning—and wishes for these days to never end. However, this joyful existence is suddenly interrupted by a series of tragic events. Uprooted from her home, Iris must leave her comfortable life behind and adapt to her new circumstances if she wishes to survive.

***This is a spoiler free review***

Do note that this review will not go into exquisite detail about plot events or the growth and depth of the characters. Instead, my purpose here is to convey the tone and characteristics of this wonderful narrative in order to encourage you to read it.

If I had to use only a collection of individual words (rather than sentences and paragraphs) to describe this light novel they would be words like:

Intense
Gripping
Suspenseful
Unexpected
Despair
Dramatic
Heartwarming

Iris on Rainy Days is, most prominently, a dark and engaging tale about loss and reclamation. Beyond the surface, Rainy Days is also lined with simplistic but meaningful symbolism. Make no mistakeーRainy Days is by no means light-hearted or faint-hearted. It does not pull its punches, and it doesn't dare suppress any of its views. Nothing is shoe-horned in to make the narrative more 'tasteful'. There is no hastily-constructed, poorly thought-out romance subplot or an extremely happy or extremely depressing ending appearing out of left field based only on the writer's whims. Everything that occurs throughout Rainy Days is purposeful; it works for everything it read more

Spoiler free review....

Man this is an amazing rollercoaster ride for my emotions
It was a very beautiful story that depicts the understanding of life and one's meaning of existence, metaphorically, from the perspective of an Artificial intelligent robot, who was also granted understanding of emotions....
Through the character development of protagonist from beginning to the end of story and in side story was absolutely amazing that resemble to basic human nature development one have gone through IRL, so relatable.....

The storytelling followed in the story was so beautifully written that it focuses on more slice of life elements, helping readers' connecting with different characters and psychologically read more

In stark contrast to the title of this novel, I read it when it was a warm sunny day and I was spending time on the Internet. This novel is wonderful to read.

When you read translations, you can't really say that you've read the work as the author intended it to be but I am sure the translators did a good job as the style of the novel was consistent and flowed naturally. The story is nothing groundbreaking, it's not something that'll amaze you but it delivers its message clearly. If you're worried that it'll be confusing since read more
