"Heita is an ordinary high school boy with a kind heart but no real interest in romance. His class is joined by a transfer student named Q10 (pronounced "kyu-to," the same as "cute"), who looks like a girl but is actually a robot. Together, the two end up causing trouble at school, and Heita even begins falling for Q10."

I'll do something new in my experience: keep my review short. I'm not sure this drama can be described in words, and the reasons to like it are very subjective. For me, watching this drama was a little like reading a novel by Kurt Vonnegut.

Q10 is surreal, poetic, highly amusing, thought-provoking and surprising . It's brilliantly acted too, which adds to its delicious oddity. It doesn't have even one unpleasant character: read more they are all very weird and very human, at times histerically hilarious and at others wonderfully deep.

I'm not sure whom I would recommend this drama to; however, I'm certain it won't do for those looking for a rom-com, for an uncomplicated plot, for simple entertainment, for shine or for glamour. The one and only requisite to approach it, is to do so with an open mind. If you believe that people have each their own sound, that calling for help loud enough will make somebody come to the rescue, that death is just a way of thinking and that you achieve a goal because you want and not because you can, then "kiuto" is for you.

Of course, I landed on Q10 because of Sato Takeru. I mean, didn't most of us did? And at first I was pretty startled at the title and thought that it'll be the typical "human-robot-love-story".
But its not that "same" cyborg story we've all once heard or seen. It is a story of a boy who didn't know what feeling love held until he met Kyuto (the girl robot). Learning to love read more through a robot who is solely made for you :) Well, that caught me.
The acting cast is good and I believe that Heita's character couldn't be played by anyone else other than Take-kun alone. Atsuko-chan's acting and delivering the dialogues in a "straight-frank-mechanical" tone was good (won't judge hard as it would've took her so much practice to speak like that!). And yeah, the side characters did good as well.
Music is really nice. Instruments such as using xylophone to create sound matching to that of a robot is a pretty good idea. My favorite is "Heartbreak" played completely on the guitar and "Love" played partly on the piano.
The drama made me feel the right amount of sadness without stretching further and keeping the fact that "Heita loved Kyuto as much as he loved the world". Although I do admit that it took me time to understand the ending but nonetheless if you talk about re-watching this, I have been re-watching its last episode since the day I finished watching it.
I like short melodramas. And this one was a cute one. :) Give it a try .

Both are romance dramas which presents love story between human and robot/cyborg.
Recommended by tora_pl
The story of Zettai Kareshi revolves around a girl who is given a free trial to use a lover-type robot, Nightly 01. It has its fair share of quirks and cool scenes. It is also the same as Absolute Boyfriend, the Taiwanese version of Zettai Kareshi (however, the female lead here is Korean so the dubs might be disappointing).

    I cannot believe this one was hiding. it is probably the third best drama i have ever seen. I am not a fangirl either. I do like all the actors, but this was just amazingly subtle, perfectly cast and acted. awesome stuff.

    The story was a little too twisted for me, but the acting and cast were great! I only watched it for Sato Takeru but all the characters turned out to be so interesting as the story evolved! I loved the science teacher~ she's so funny. This is one of those movies that shows Sato Takeru's growth as an actor. He isn't as good here as he is in his future shows.

    Kyuuto is such an adorable robot! I like how it ended i don't have any complains since we know that Keita will be happy in the future. I just wish they have some kind of a drama special for this or a scene that show us more on the development of Keita's feelings to his wife

    The ending song is superb .

    First impression is really different from the minute I end this drama. I thought this would be boring robot story, but I'm totally wrong! Although kyuto's voice is annoying at first, but it becomes cuter each episode and u will end up mimicking her voice
    This drama deserves 9 score overall, for the developmnt of the story eventhough I'd like it to be moooooore focused on both leads..

      Especially Cyborg She. If you enjoyed Q10, Cyborg She will blow you away.

      Cyborg She is more like continuation of Q10, do you agree w/me?

      I guess you could say that because of the setting : High school vs a grown up lead. I consider it a reverse though Q10 ended poorly in my opinion as it should have been its own story, it felt like a copy and paste

    Is there a special after episode 9 of Q10? Here on MDL it says there are 10 episodes, but everywhere I look, it only goes to 9 and that one is listed as the final episode. Someone please let me know!

    I sense a sad love story at the end T^T, like actually zetai kareshi was a love that cannot be... from the very begining i was like ' noo that roboter loves her so much, hes soo nice, but, he is a roboter and she is a human!'
