Personal View:

   Yes, as you can tell I'm totally an completely hooked to this series. I first saw this back in 2013, one of my associates recommended this to me. And being alittle optimistic I blow it off for about three months. I happen to be on netflix one day and just said fine I'll give it a shot. From that moment I was hooked. I've seen all the anime episodes. I've only looked over the manga briefly, though it is on my to read list and I have downloaded it.
 From what I've heard from many different people that have experienced both of the manga and anime, say that the two are very different. Which you'll also see in the video I posted below. I have however looked at at the manga, the artwork is by far my most favorite. Some of the fit scenes are draw out to beautifully. That I was alittle disappointed that they were not in the anime. Yet, once again, me an my fabulousness found you the manga online for your reading pleasures. Hopefully you will enjoy this type of series just as much as I have, and sure will even more in the future.

 You can also buy the manga at Barns and noble. I've listed below different information websites, and the first few episodes on the anime season one. Enjoy!!

Episode One: New Life and a Vampire
Original Airdate: January 3, 2008

Tsukune Aono, a subpar student both academically and physically, is accepted into a mysterious high school. His first day of school is defined by his encounter with Moka Akashiy, a vampire that is enchanted by the scent of his human blood. Having quickly discovered that his new school is a school for monsters that have a mortal intolerance for humans, Tsukune tries to find a way to escape from the school. Upon his attempt to run away from the school, Tsukune has a confrontation with Moka. A fight with a delinquent student named Saizo quickly complicates and endangers Tsukune's life right before he accidentally removes the rosario on Moka's neck. Tsukune learns that Moka's true form has a different personality, which easily defeats Saizo. He faints from his beating given by Saizo and wakes to find normal Moka caring for him. She tries to help him wipe off blood coming from a cut, but ends up sucking his blood.

Episode Two: Succubus and a Vampire
Original Airdate: January 10, 2008

During the month-long delay between bus trips between the human and yōkai worlds, Tsukune tries not to draw any attention to himself. Unfortunately for him, Moka is having other ideas as she yearns for perpetual proximity to Tsukune which incites the jealousy of the male students. Tsukune's fortunes deteriorate further when the popular succubus Kurumu Kurono declares Moka as her rival and attempts to seduce him. Tsukune is put in a trance by Kurumu and ends up hurting Moka's feelings by saying she only uses him as beverage. Kurumu manages to get Tsukune alone, planning to turn him into her first slave as part of her plan to make the male students into her personal harem; Tsukune manages to break the spell. Enraged, Kurumu tries to kill him, but Moka arrives and saves him; Tsukune unleashes the other Moka and Kurumu is beat up. The next day, Tsukune is shocked to see Kurumu has fallen in love with him for keeping "Inner Moka" from killing her, much to his horror.

Episode Three: Witch Girl and Vampire
Original Airdate: January 17, 2008
The crush that the young witch Yukari Sendo has on Moka drives her to endeavor to isolate her from Tsukune through various and often humorous pranks, including trying to make Moka believe that Tsukune is making sexual advances on Kurumu (who does not seem to care whether it is a prank or not). During a confrontation by a trio of lizardmen who are intolerant of witches, Yukari quickly finds that Tsukune is a true friend and vows to turn over a new leaf. Unfortunately, it means she now loves both Tsukune and Moka.

A.I. Love You

                                                         (Cover Artwork)
Book Description: Story & Art by Ken Akamatsu

 The story centres on Hitoshi Kōbe, a guy who is neither academically gifted nor good at sports, so he does not do very well at school.

  Hitoshi has only one thing going for him - his ability to program computers. In fact, he is so good at this he has created programs that can rewrite themselves - Artificial Intelligence, in other words. So far he has created thirty of these programs, and the latest - whom he names Saati ( The Japanese pronunciation of the English word "Thirty" )- is so advanced that conversation with her is indistinguishable from a normal girl and, thus, would easily pass the Turning test.

  However, there is still the barrier of Hitoshi being in the physical world and Saati being a program, until one day a freak lightning strike materializes her into the real world, where she becomes the girlfriend of Hitoshi.

  The series then follows their now not so ordinary lives, as well as other A.I.s of Hitoshi's creation. The basic plotline is derivative of the Kōsuke Fujishima manga Oh My Goddess!, with the AI constructs being analogous to the goddess characters of the earlier manga. The setting also bears similarities to the John Hughes film Weird Science. Both feature male protagonists creating their ideal girlfriends on computers and both girls are brought into the real world via lightning, bearing somewhat superhuman powers. Despite these obvious similarities however, Akamatsu claims not to have seen the film prior to creating the series.

 Alright yes, I kinda cheated with my info above. So all credit goes to wonderful "Wikipedia" this time. Also you can find even more info on the website I've listed below. I just really wanted to get this manga out today. Now that I've gotten that taken care of.

 This great A.I. manga was written by Ken Akamatsu. I first feel in love with his work back when I read "Love Hina". I did my post on this great series back on 10/18/13. Feel free to go back and check it out. I know that its listed above that this series is more based for a teen mind, but from what I can remember I don't see anything wrong if a Pre-teen read it. Yet, again I'm not your mommy here. The artwork is great, I totally love how he draws his charters faces.

   I posted all the cover artwork throughout this post. I sometimes have to show that great appreciation to all the hard work the author puts into this. I do have to sadly report this manga is no longer on sale, so your best bet would be Amazon etc type places. An some of the prices I saw were fair. So if you do happen to get your hands on this I would love to hear your feed back.
