I wanted to read this manga for a lot of time and finally I was able to read it (thanks 2019 reading challenge XDD)

Story: let's start writing that many websites wrote a little description about this manga but I think it's more correct to say something like this: the year is AD 2048 where humans talk about things that are not human and the technology is good and humans starts to create the first robots. Or better, someone already created them. Robots with human appearance but not with human emotions.
Among them there's Origin, a robot that don't wants to be discovered by humans but wants to live properly, like his father and creator teached him. Will Origin live properly amongst humans? And what about the other robots with human appearences?

I found this story really interesting: how can a robot live in a human world? Can a simple "live properly" be enought or will he search for another way to live? I think that our main character, Origin, is really interesting. A robot more smart than a human that try to live like a human (with a lot of problems that a human don't have). But the most interesting thing is that Origin is a character that learn a lot about humans and about their way to live and about their emotions.
The art is really good, every page is a little master piece (I loved the Dr. Stone art but I think Boichi is more suited for Sci-Fi): the battle pages are really good to see and the landscape are really awesome!

My rating: 8/10

Story Spoiler

The story is really interesting and I loved it! But I'm a little sad about the last chapter... I'm fine with the final battle Origin vs Masamune... it was a good battle and Origin was more "powerful" but I didn't like the last chapter because Masamune was still around and now have a new body... why not giving us another chapter where he and Origin talk? I wanted to see what Masamune will do from now on... oh well... at least we know that Origin will always be with people.
