for the last episode:
I didn't watch the preview of the last episode till the end ,but now, watching it again, I saw a image with Night smiling....Did someone else saw this?
At least I know that he'll meet with Riiko again and I HOPE she'll finally say something nice to him!
A little help with translation, ep 10:
Please, does anyone know what Riiko said when she was holding in her hands the Planetarium ticket? She was talking about Night but I just don't know what she said.
Thank you

I'm sorry but I can't wait till I can finish this. This drama is really starting to bore me and I just want to get it over with. I was in the middle of 18 Jin Bu Jin when I saw the softsubs came out and decided to watch it. That was the longest 45 minutes of any drama.
Honey, honey, honey...

^ I do agree first couple eps, it's kinda predictable , but I think fr ep 5 on, it gets quite entertaining and it got me hooked. And Moco has always just been a handsome tall dude acting as some nobody in dramas, but he did seriously well here. Esp ep 9, 10 when he's getting more human and started to have his own id, it's subtle but u can really tell his Naito shifting fr mere machine to processing human feelings and emotions.
(esp in the scene in 10 when Riiko gave him the clover leaf as a gift blessing his safe return fr repairs. I bet that's the first time Naito felt Riiko really cared, and his smile there is not his usual teethy grin.)
After watching 10, I am really really hoping for Riko+Naito, before this ep, I think it can go either way and I'll be fine with it. I dont see much intensity in Soshi's love for Riko, all he did is mentioning he likes her, so it's all talk against Naito's wholehearted actions. Soshi was a player before, it was not given a reason why he broke up with his ex, is he dependable at all as a true love?! The only pro going for him is he's human, but with Naito having self consciousness, is he merely a robot?! At least without malfunction, u can depend on him doing what he said 100%, there's no guessing game, no trust issue, no change of heart.

She said sth like, You told me not to fall in love with Night, right?! I used to think, falling in love normally, marry somebody like everyone else is what happiness is. I still think so, but...
Then the bar lady cut her off with, ' You have made up your mind in going to Paris with Soshi already, huh?
You will have your dream come true both in what you want to do and in love. Don't let what's important to you slip.
Riiko then said, 'But Night is very impt to me too. '

I watched episode 9 and it was a lot better than the last episode, at least I think.

But in the preview for episode 10....
It looks like Soshi finds out Night is a robot!? I wonder what will happen...
I'm still rooting for Soshi, because honestly in Episode 8 it seemed like he didn't have a chance and that the last two episodes were going to focus on resolving the fact that Riiko didn't even like Night. But now he has a fighting chance so I'm excited (and nervous) to see what happens.

All and all I liked this a lot better when I first started watching it, but the only reason I really keep watching it is because I really like Hiro hahha

Thanks so much for responding to me!
By the way:
What do you think Night is thinking of there when he's alone and smiling? I was thinking that maybe he's thinking about Riiko who's in Paris...But if he's there that means he's not "dead"...maybe it's a happy ending after all.

I think the ending part of ep 10 is kind of touching. Let's hope nothing happen to Night - not dead.

I liked the ending ah damn one less thing to watch and I'm running out of things to watch lols. About episode 11-
Hahaha I found the part where Namikiri tries to stop the guards to be funny. He looked like a raving lunatic one second and then the next second he was on the floor. Oh and the part where Riiko tells all her coworkers that Night is actually a robot but nobody believed her. And finally the last part where the landlady mentions that she knew Night was Riiko's boyfriend all along. Now I just got to wait for the subs to understand all of it. Too bad they didn't include the ring thing from the manga but I guess a computer chip is equivalent enough.

last spisode:
Well, You don't have to speak Japanese to understand this ep..... It was so sad, I don't remember the last time when I cried so much watching a drama!!
It was an ending like in the manga, and Riiko was sweet to him.
I don't know what to watch again....so sad it's over....i really enjoyed this drama although Riiko annoyed me several times...

Oh man... on the final episode:
I couldn't help but cry like a silly little girl the entire episode. I knew what to expect, but still couldn't help it! Even though Night's body was in the process of shutting down, he didn't want to worry anyone and acted like normal. He has got to be one of the best characters ever in all of JDrama! It's sad that only in the end does Riiko realize she should have treated Night more kindly! They only had one real date :(. そんな素敵な彼氏がいるかな?Do boyfriends like that exist?

Soushi and Riko went to Paris together after Night died. Night told her to go to paris and he likes her smiling and wants her to keep smiling. Geez it makes me teary just re-thinking Night's message to her.
I don't know if they will make a special. If they do, it would be a lot of flashbacks.

My take on what happened to Night's system
Night's system was starting to malfunction because he was processing too many human emotions which the computer couldn't process and finally over heated. After he got to rest and Riko kissed him, he got to rest and had time to control the heat problem. (This happened in the manga too but they had sex. This is tv ^^;) Then Night's main IC started to fail. I think due to the heating system problem earlier? If the CPU heats up, it will stop working, that's why computers need fans to cool it down. Narimiki can't do anything about it because the CPU is like Night's brain/soul. If it's breaks down, replacing it won't be the same. He can add more memory, he can add battery but he can't add CPU. So Night died.

OH MY GOD.

lol i didn't really like it!
how he just suddenly had to die like that..!
but i was actually surprised (since i'm a Soshi fan) that i'd be teary over Night's 'death' and Riiko's crying to it.

so she finally decides to go to Paris with Soshi....well they could've at least shown her showing a little more love to him. hahahaha

Ugh, When they're ready. 10 is released.


I thought episode 10 was better than the last couple of episodes. Knowing me, I don't think I'll cry massively like the other dramas I've seen because well, Taiwanese and Korean dramas have made sadder dramas. xD I'm used to them.

Just watched ep 11 without subs, but wasn't as hars as I thought (wanted to watch the beginnig only, but I ended up watching it till the end)
Although I didn't really get, what the problem was with Knights chip.... was it from the tried restoration in ep 10?
Anyway, nice.... in the end I liked Knight unexpectedly, since I hated him so much in the beginning.

just finished watching ep 10 and loved it. i was really getting bored with this series, it seemed too predicatable, i didn't like the acting very much and the bakery aspect of it wasn't that interesting. but this episode really got to me. riiko is finally showing more affection towards night. he seemed more real, his expressions and interactions with riiko had more emotion and that hug near the end totally won me over. can't wait the last episode! i'm still cheering for night x riiko but she'll probably end up with soshi.

Although I didn't really get, what the problem was with Knights chip.... was it from the tried restoration in ep 10?
Anyway, nice.... in the end I liked Knight unexpectedly, since I hated him so much in the beginning.
Honestly i still hate him even to the end it was a great show but maybe if someone ele played Night i would think differently i don't really think so but it's just a thought .

awwww machines

I saw ep 10, and I just finished reading the manga, Gosh its so different the manga and the drama, everything is different!! They just used the same character names and changed the entire story from the manga! I wonder what Watase sensei thinks abt that. Has anyone read the manga?

Anyway, I actually disliked Naito kun intensely too and really liked soushi, but after reading the manga I am crazily in love with Naito, and now I don't dislike the Naito in the drama as much!! But I think too if someone else played Night, I might have a different opinion... I think this actor is actually not as handsome as he is supposed to be(in the manga). Though off my head I can't think of any actor who is as good looking as he is portrayed in the manga. Watase sensei draws him really good too, he looks a lot like Tamahome (from Fushigi Yuugi, another manga of hers).

The last part of ep10 was really sweet cos Night was acting more human too, I didn't like his robotic actor, and also, Riiko's sudden change of heart is a little too unbelievable imo. I recommend everyone read the manga, you can read it from onemanga.com, it is really really good.

Awww, I thought Hayami Mokomichi did a great job as Night! There aren't many Japanese actors that are as tall as him, and he has a great body and smile. Also... all of Yuu Watase's men characters look the same: shave off the hair and there won't be much of a difference

Oh no, the ending must be similar to the manga then :( I'm so sad already!! I can imagine how the ending would be, I was really sad and depressed after reading the end of the manga.

I just got done watching the last episode.. oh yes I was fighting the tears!! ;-; Which is really odd. I hated Naito at the start of the show and almost through the entire drama. I just started liking him about an episode or two ago..

But, since I liked the drama so much I now have to get my hands on the manga!! Everyone keeps saying how diffrent it is so I gotta read it now ^^

Oh my, I didn't cry at all through the whole series. And I'm a cryer. I did get a little teary-eyed but not to the point where I had to wipe it away. Very good series though, I thought it was great. I laughed alot during it and it made me want to watch more Japanese series. I'll probably watch just one every season from now on though, not a whole lot, I love the sadness of my Korean dramas. ;]

Strange. The beginning of the last episode was kind of a surprise for me, but the overall ending of the series was pretty much how I predicted it to be. I still really love this series though.

The first few episodes I wanted Izawa to go with Soshi but as the episodes went along, it was hilarious and Night x Izawa was good.

Hi, I think you can try looking for the Manga version of Zettai Kareshi on OneManga.com. I cried buckets reading it...imagine!? I never thought I'd cry reading a manga and I cried buckets!

I wasn't a great fan of the manga, but for some reason I was hooked to this drama...
There were parts of it I found very cheesy/fake (the whole explanation of free will/ science explanations made me role my eyes a bit)
I think it would be fun playing the character Night. His behavior caused me to laugh several times... I found it interesting that he displays his emotions so well... and it really contrasts to how the Japanese society in general suppresses displays of affection
I can't believe i cried... but I'm really satisfied with the ending. it's one of the most enjoyable dramas I've seen yet.

I just finished watching the last episode, how sad!! But it was surprisingly not as sad as the manga, I was really in tears reading the end of the manga. Like 1 of the posters, I too didn't like Night initially in the drama and wanted Izawa to be with Soushi but the last 2 episodes (and also after reading the manga!!), I really liked Night a lot, especially as he started to display a bit more expression and emotion towards the end. But for a lover robot, I think there wasn't that much love scenes in it. The manga has quite a lot of kissing and more!

Sigh, poor Night!!

During the last episode, I was strangely reminded of the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz who finally got a heart :mrgreen:

but oh yeah, i really like what soshi was wearing in the last episode, like his shirts. you know what brand or style i should look up? its kind of like a v-neck i would guess, and slim jeans, and then chucks right?

I kind of disliked Night as well, but in the last few episodes, he was just downright adorable :-)

I have read the manga, and I don't really remember how it ends, but I do remember that it didn't make me cry.

But, unexpectedly, I cried my eyes out during the last episode! It completely caught me off guard!

Anyway, good series! :)

The way Night died was peaceful in a way. Throughout the whole series, Night has been very considerate, gentle, kind, supportive, and tried his very best at winning Rikko's love. He tried his very best to live, imo. He has a simple wish - to see Rikko smile and be happy.

From "seeing him as just an appliance" to "someone important" ... Rikko annoyed at Night most of the times to finally warming up to him and accepting him as her boyfriend ...

...
which is why it was so heart-wrenching for Night to die!!! Even when he was about to die, he accepted it and was considerate and kind toward the very end.
sigh. death is not normal and is such a sorrowful thing. D:
On the other hand, Mika's character was poorly developed, no?

i wonder what soshi's motokano (ex) was referring to whenever she tried to tell riko and night about what soshi did 3 years ago... this happened twice in the series, and soshi always stopped her from going further in the story.. it's just weird that they emphasized it too much, but didn't give it any closure in the end.

just noticed it. =)

other than that, i so loved the series. i so loved how it ended, and how night approached it. it's simply a heartwarming drama that would make anyone's heart melt and appreciate love in its purest form. it was the perfect balance of comedy and romance.
