    Chapter Six is out.

    I'm really hoping that Mai isn't dead. Hell, I'm hoping she's actually a cyborg.

    Damn it all, though. No chapter this week. At least next week is a double chapter.

    Chapter 8 is out!

    The conclusion of the hopeless battle. Origin did well to not die, and he's finally asking the questions that ran through my mind when I read the first chapters. Side note, I was kinda hoping that Hirose was actually a cyborg. Kinda sad to see that it doesn't seem to be the case.

    So, the series is up to Chapter 14. I'm starting to see some faults in this work. Namely, that it's going at a snail's pace. I think this would be a series that'd benefit from a monthly schedule. Better pacing, not to mention the art bump.

    Let's talk about the art, though. Holy shit, I almost can't believe this is a weekly series, the art is so detailed. I almost can't imagine what a monthly version would look like.

    I must say, the cover page for this chapter was intriguing as fuck. Who is that female robot..?? :hmm

    So, we're up to Chapter 23 now. Lotta stuff has happened (still not as much as I'd like, though). Even had some backstory. One question still burns me, though... WHO IS THAT FEMALE ROBOT IN THE COVER ARTS?!?

    What about it? The story seems fairly straight forward so far.

    Main villain is a robot that gained a sense of self. At least that's what all the other robots think. In reality it seems all of them have a sense of self and emotions. The boss is simply the only one that has realized it and is fully acting on it.

    Main character is trying to be a good person and protect people like his inventor told him to.This has put him into opposition with the other robot group.

    The other important characters are the main character's harem of girls composed of a brilliant and beautiful, but miserably lonely, Italian engineer and a cute AI specialist, who is also lonely.

    Recently we were also introduced to a secret super computer which is the most intelligent AI on the planet. They attempted to seal it away but, being the greatest intelligence on the planet, it has managed to find other ways to contact the outside world, such as the slight fluctuations in the electricity that keeps it running. It's current desire is to meet the main villain. Most likely Y, like the other robots, believe him to be the only one of them with a free will. This also suggests Y may not be as intelligent as people believe. It shares characteristics with humans and as such can make silly mistakes, like putting himself in a completely vulnerable position in front of the main character.

    At the moment Gon, one of the villain robots is coming to lab where Y is kept. It is possible that they have been contacted by Y and Gon is there to take him away. What is more likely though is that he is there to steal technology from the lab as it is an AI focused lab. The villains want to increase their intelligence to keep up with Origin as he has 70x the processing power they have. Gon is the only one of the villain robots that does not want to increase his intelligence, choosing instead to focus on strength. This places him as the arc rival to Origin who has currently been attempting to figure out a way to strengthen his body without losing the ability to blend in as a human. Gon has no problem with losing his human like body.
