Tensions rise between humans and robots in this sci-fi/drama set in the near future. Alex took a huge risk to unlock Ada and it seems to have paid off – Ada can now think for herself and explore life as a sentient android. As Alex and Ada spend more time together, they become closer. But as restrictions tighten on androids, Ada feels unsure about her place in Alex’s life and the world.

3 out of 5 stars

Alex and Ada deal with some stuff that happened after volume 1 ended. Alex realizes that maybe it’s a little weird that he’s falling in love with an android, Ada leaves, gets in trouble, then everything is fine again.

I liked this second volume better than the first, but it’s still so strange. I’m excited to read the final volume because I think it’ll be a good ending, but it seems so rushed. Again, I don’t know exactly how I feel about this because it’s so different. The art style is very different than any graphic novel I’ve read before. It’s very simplistic, but also a little creepy. I don’t know.

There has been some sexual humor that I didn’t expect, honestly. Pretty much the only reason for getting one of these androids is to have sex because you can’t find an actual person, so you buy one instead.

Ummmm. Yeah. I’m not in love with the series, but it’s not horrible.
