--Heita Fukai (Takeru Sato) is an ordinary, but timid, high school student who has no interest in love. This all changes when a new transferee student (Atsuko Maeda) arrives at his school. Heita discovers that the girl is actually a robot named Q10. The duo starts to cause trouble in school, while Heita starts to fall in love with the robot. This is how their story begins ...

One day Heita Fukai finds a girl sleeping in the science lab. When Heita touches her, she suddenly wakes up and opens her eyes. The girl was actually brought to the lab by the school's principal Jiro Kishimoto (Takehiko Ono). The previous night, principal Jiro Kishimoto, after a night of drinking alcohol, discovered the girl in the garbage. The drunk principal takes her to his home.

The next morning the principal notices that the girl doesn't breathe at all and he asks for help from Heita's homeroom teacher Tatsune Ogawa (Yuji Tanaka). Tatsune Ogawa recommends that they should hide the girl in the science lab. When they get there, they find Doctor of Engineering Kuriko Yanagi (Hiroko Yakushimaru) in the lab. Kuriko notices that the girl is actually a robot with human looks. A secret does exist within her.

The principal is afraid of a scandal and proposes a solution. They should keep this a secret and under the situation, Heita becomes the caretaker for the robot; not realizing that he has totally fallen in love with her...

I like this show for many reasons. It has a nice pace to it, never rushing over important details, but never dwelling to heavily on the emotional ones. Takeru Sato is definitely was a perfect choice for the main because of his ability to portray the much needed emotions to truly bring life to his character. A much needed ability when the person opposite you has to play a mainly emotionless robot. The show portrayed a robot without being too "techy," or farfetched. I found this show to be believable, relate-able and comfortable. I highly recommend this show. Plus if all of the above is not enough you do get to see Takeru Sato, Kento Kaku, and Yoshihiko Hosoda shirtless!!!!
