It didn’t quite go as he had hoped. A Zhai is a typical otaku who is obsessively in love with the most beautiful girl in school, Penny, but he lacks the courage and social skills to do anything about it.
When he discovers a technology that brings him a robot companion from the future, he accidentally programs the robot to model Penny’s ideal boyfriend, instead of programming it to be Penny herself.Now stuck with a male robot companion, A Zhai manages to reorder a female robot and customizes it to be his Penny.
But things get complicated when the robot Penny falls in love with the male robot, instead of Azhai, and the three live together in a hopeless love triangle. What will become of this terrible mess?

Cast & Credits
Here are a few things I liked and disliked (in no particular order):
1 THE ACTING
LIKE: I really like the way Bai Zhu plays his character(A Zhai). His facial expressions and the way he brings his lines are quite adorable and unique. Even though some people really seem to dislike A Zhai (which I kind of get, when looking at certain scenes, particularly the ones where he mistreats Adam or doesn't listen to his advice, which then results in problems that could've been avoided if he did listen) I think he is a really fun character that brings life to the show.
DISLIKE: A ZHAI IS SUCH. AN. IDIOT! Seriously, I love him, but damnnn he is so stuborn and in some moments pretty mean. I could even call it a little...selfish?. I also dislike the way he treats Adam. Especially since Adam is the one who keeps saving and protecting A Zhai when things turn sour. Which is A LOT of times.
A Zhai and his best friend cracked me up everytime they were together. I loved it when they were scheming and going on missions together. You would think that two heads/two brains together would be able to think of at least a simple, good working plan, but I guess that's not the case with A Zhai and Wang Fu Gui. They are also really bad at lying. But that's okay, It's funny to watch. I think their friendship is really cute.
3 THE CINEMATOGRAPHY
The camera work is done very well. The set also looks great! The whole show gives you a comic kinda feel with all the sound/visual effects they've put in it. All this put together makes the show aesthetically pleasing.
LIKE: The story is suprising and unique. There are a lot of turns and twists that make you want to see the next episode as fast as possible. The pace of the storyline is just right. Not too slow, not too fast. I also like how they sometimes break the 4th wall by talking to us (the audience) directly.
DISLIKE: One aspect of the storyline that gets dragged out too much is A Zhai's obession with Eve. FOR REAL, MAN It just keeps going on and on and on and on and onnnnnn. I rolled with my eyes a lot.
5 THE BL
This is probably what the most of us are here for.
Well, TOO BAD because there is almost none. Except for a few cute scenes, there isn't much romantic action between them. I can't even say ''just watch it for their friendship' because as I said earlier, A Zhai is pretty mean to Adam in every episode. Unless there are more bl scenes coming in season 2 I wouldn't really call this a BL series since 80% of this show is A Zhai chasing after Eve.
It's a really cute show and you should definitely watch it for the cool actors, the humor and fun scenes. But not for the BL.
(Sorry if there are any mistakes or weird sentences in this. English isn't my native language.)
ACTING/CAST: Bai Shu (Ah-Zhai) is a very good actor, very expressive. Cai Wen Jing (Pei Ni) is a very good actress; she played multiple, and very different, personalities.
MUSIC: I liked both the opening and closing songs of this show.
REWATCH VALUE: Well, I am hoping for a Season 2 but don't have much of a reason to revisit Season 1.
OVERALL: Read my spoiler in the comments section if you want my opinion about the BL in this show.
