A quietly wonderful social justice robot freedom romance comic. Alex's rich grandmother thinks he's still moping from a breakup, so she buys him a top of the line android companion that he didn't want. As Alex tries to get to know Ada, he starts to suspect that she could be more than the company that made her will admit. His investigation leads him into contact with an underground robot rights movement, but it also stirs up questions among people close to him who might be more dangerous than he imagines.
Alex is a fundamentally decent person. His struggle is to figure out what the right thing is, not whether to do that right thing. So when he learns more about Ada's potential, he simply does what needs doing. Luna's reserved art style is a perfect match for the subdued personalities of Alex and Ada, and the story provides good contrast between them and some of the more expressive characters (notably Alex's grandmother, who seems to delight in sharing TMI with Alex about her relationship with her own android).
A couple of my friends observed that Alex's affect and behavior at the beginning of this series strongly suggest depression, and I'm inclined to agree, though I think it's situational rather than biological/ongoing. Watching him come out of his shell because he needs to protect Ada makes my heart all melty.
