Rejected way too many times by good-looking (and unattainable) guys, shy Riiko Izawa goes online and signs up for a free trial of a mysterious Nightly Lover 'figure'. The very next day, a cute naked guy is delivered to her door, and he wants to be her boyfriend! Riiko needs money after giving all she had to help pay for Night, so she finds a job at the same place Soshi works. Not wanting Night to worry, she doesn't tell him about her new job, but Night finds out anyway. What's even more worrying to Night is how Riiko is beginning to feel for Soshi.

About the Author

A manga artist for over ten years, Watase's debut came in 1989 at the age of 18 when her short story PAJAMA DE OJAMA (An Intrusion in Pajamas) appeared in the monthly Shoc;jo Comic manga anthology. Since then she has written and drawn some 50 volumes worth of different short stories and long-running manga series, including the fantastically popular FUSHIGI YUGI, also available in English from VIZ. Her works have provided the basis for two television series, an OVA series, anime soundtrack CDs, and a string of novels.

Reviews

He's faster than a speeding bullet, can run up tall buildings, and he cooks breakfast! When luckless-in-love teen Riiko strikes out again, she falls for a pitch from an odd salesman and orders a "lover figure" she names "Night." Riiko finds herself intrigued, but her life (amusingly) complicated. Fortunately, her parents are away, but neighbor Soshi wonders what's going on he has a crush on Riiko himself. Then she must deal with Night's $1 million price tag. Eventually, a rival reinitializes Night to herself by kissing him. Can Riiko get him back, and will she have sex with him? Or will she and Soshi recognize their mutual attraction? With the graceful art style of Watase's other titles (Fushigi Yugi; Ceres), this six-volume shojo reversal of the Chobits formula is an enjoyable, lightweight read. Science fiction fans may recall Tanith Lee's nuanced and tragic The Silver Metal Lover. Hopefully, this frothier story will end on an upbeat note. With sexual themes; rated for older teens up; currently running in Shojo Beat. See also Sparks: An Urban Fairy Tale for a more serious comics heroine taking a do-it-yourself approach to the magical boyfriend theme. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Volume 2 continues on from the story from volume 1. It is still a romantic comedy. In this volume Riko deals with the trouble of looking after Night at school, earning money and her growing feelings for her best friend. This a worthy manga edition from this awesome manga artist.
