I remember finding this gem on bakatsuki, back in the day where Xianxia was yet to a thing to be translated and novel updates was pretty much non existence.

But anyways, it was a time where translators focused more on Japanese light novels with good storylines and well structured plots even despite the trope littered mountain of novels.

This novel had a very deep impression on me, I'm not to say that I an expert at reading novels, but this one was an emotional roller coaster, and I must say, made me... more>> cry. I find it a shame that so little people read this, it doesn't give you that immediate satisfaction of adventure as most light novels do these days, but as I said, it's a wonderfully crafted story where you have to read the whole thing in order to relish the quality of the story.

Onto the actual story. I won't say too much, I much rather advise potential readers to dive straight into this novel without knowing anything since that's what I did and I must say I never regretted it.

But ultimately This novel is in one word, grim. It has that modern layer of cutesy moe and undertone of shoujo ai, but it doesn't make it any less gritty and heart wrenching. It has both its happy points and sad points, but most of the time I just felt this nervous sensation clenching my gut along with a vast amount of melancholy.

If you decide this novel please do, it's not a novel where readers tend to discuss about since the sense of closure is just so thick when you finish it, but give it a try if you feel like going back in time of the older era of light novels. <<less

A beautiful story and will go down as my favorite novel so far out of the 200+ novels I have read and am reading. I was crying because of this story. It is an extremely moving and heartwarming story. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a story that can tug on your heartstrings and make you rethink life. I highly recommend for everyone to read.

The story is slow, but it is very impactful and deep. We have a futuristic setting (which is very cool!), where we read about love, familial affection, hardship, and loss from the POV of the robot Iris. Characters feel very real and the emotions of the robots make you root for them. It is a very deep story, with all the ups and downs of a drama. By the end, you'll want to cry from either sadness or happiness.

It's a sweet story about an android. The start might be a little bit slow, but it was worth it. Do prepare some tissue, as this is one of the novel that will made you cry your eyes out.

Expecting a cute, lighthearted slice of life story? You came to the right novel. Want a heartbreaking adventure filled with pain, agony and hopelessness? Also in this damn novel. Iris's concept and pursuit of happiness will make your heart clench; as the story progress, the reality gets further and further from her dreams, yet her love and hope never falters. Each character's backstory and their opinions about reasons of life is provoking; you'll question the very definition of feelings, "soul", and the meaning of life itself. This book had a... more>> great impact on me; I hope it will change you too. Enjoy! <<less

Oh my god. I swear, this is the very first time a Novel has driven me into this state. While I'm writing this review, I'm still shedding drops of tears. I don't know, this story is too beautiful.
I'm still wondering how a novel about robots can drive me to tears like this. I have no words to describe this, it's a hidden gem. If you're still wondering whether you should read this or not, I believe this is a legitimate question. I mean, if you don't want to sit... more>> in your bed and cry in a corner, you should probably never start a chapter. But if you like bittersweet stories, this one won't dissapoint you. Definitely not. <<less
