Good drama that has more complex message than what the story might suggest.
Heita Fukai (Ken Sato) is a contemplative high school student who was thinking of what it means to love another person. One day he inadvertently turns the switch on of an android (Atsuko Maeda) that was found in the streets of Tokyo. He names the android Q10 (Kyuto). From that day on Q10 and Heita are never to be seen apart. But what is Q10, and where did it come from ?
The premise of the story is almost identical to the movie "Cyborg She" in that female android from the future unexpectedly enters the life of an young man, and they have simulated human relationship. What follows to the main protagonist is almost identical as well. What's different about this drama, and what makes it so good is the supporting characters, and the subplot that goes on in the story. Many of the supporting casts are A list or semi A list actors, who can carry a drama on their own. New comers Atsuko Maeda, and Ken Sato puts in very good performance as the android, and a high school student who's bewildered by the sudden change in his life brought on by the android.
The story has underlying sadness that's common to stories written by Izumi Kizara. Izumi Kizara is a pen name of husband, and wife writers Tsutomu Izumi, and Tokiko Mega.
Good drama, that has deeper than usual subplot compared to other teen based high school drama, and is worth the watch.
