Note: I rarely give 10 or 9. Thus, if it has 10/9 rating in a particular category, then it really overwhelmed my criteria.

The title speaks for itself - "Absolute Boyfriend" (the English translation). Idealism was precisely incorporated in having an ideal partner including what people really wants from his/her partner. It also showed the reality that nothing stays the same hundred percent. People tend to change including their wants because of their environment and the situation they are into.

This series had one of the best figurative interpretation on how to love someone selflessly. It came to a point when I felt like how can a robot be more human than me in forsaking oneself due to the love for someone. And then I asked myself, "Can I be like him? Can I love someone selflessly?"

Well, if you want to try this, have your tissues/hankies ready at the last quarter of the series.

By the way, my criteria per review and how I rate each category are discussed in my profile.

I adore this drama. When i first heard about it I was a bit torn about whether to watch it or not. A human falling in love with a robot? No thankyou. However, I'm so glad I did!

The plot might seem silly but its actually really good and heart warming. Its about teaching someone how to love. Even though the plot is a bit far fetched its still believable and thats one of the main things I love.

The acting is good, however I've never been a huge fan of Hayami Mokomichi and find his acting a bit lacking. I will admit I was biased and mostly watched this for Mizushima Hiro.
