"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.

"I am here right here, right now!"

From now on, when I hear, that most of the best things are discovered accidentally (I should raise a glass for you, Rita~), but on the best right time, I am going to smile knowingly and relive the feelings I had during the 3 days I watched Q10.

This little drama has neither the mind blowing novelty, eye catching effects, heart throbbing romance, head spinning read more mysteries, tear jerking dramas... none... it even does not have the best script... but my mind is blown because of the beautiful lines every character delivered, my eyes never left the screen because every word the characters said engraved deep into my heart, my heart throbbed every second of the drama because all the things they said are so known, but so welcome to my ears, my head was spinning from the realization that I know all the words delivered, but I need to hear them so much more often as they are so warm, so true, so sweet and so-so right, my tears were running so calmly and sweetly, I did not even realize I was crying until I sobbed at the last moment of the last episode~

In the beginning Q10's character was so confusing, that I did not know how I could rate her for myself, at first it seems she has no facial expressions (she's a robot, for crying out loud), she delivers her lines in a monotone, tilts her head, does not blink, how... how? I was watching the 2nd episode when I realized, gosh, she is gorgeous! I can see her smiling, even when she is not, I can see her thinking, even when she can't! I was caught in this so quickly...

A little later I discovered why I had the oh-so-familiar feeling about this drama, well, you see, I have a all time favourite drama, and it is Nobuta wo Produce, if you had watched it as much as I have, you would definitely recognize the same 'signature' of the director, as both dramas are directed by the same one... the beautiful shots of the sky, the rook of the school, the friendship of the characters, absence of an antagonist, characters revealing both positive and negative traits, not being perfect, but themselves...oh and so many more things...

I will repeat myself, and say, that the most beautiful thing in this drama are the delivered lines - oh-so-familiar and known, and ought to be said more often.

As for me, am contemplating on rewatching it right now (it has been 10 minutes since I finished it), I am sure this will become one of my favourite additions to my collection and one of the most rewatched ones on my list.

Absolutely recommended~! Paffun~

Make a Recommendation More recs (8)Recommendations

two surreal gakkou(-ish) dorama
that's in reality not much to have in common
but what the connection popped up in my head for is actually that I for some reason felt the *atmosphere* was same/similar (about Q10 e1-2); it's weird, 'cause technically the atmosphere is kind of exactly what is completely different

although I had the compulsion to make the recommendation due to such whim of a feeling, the fact that you'd probably really like them both or won't be able to like either is another thing - so...

Both are romance dramas which presents love story between human and robot/cyborg.

    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.

    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..
