    A unique and quirky story about a robot falling in love with a human, during a time of great social unrest. Little bit of Wall-E, little bit of Her, little bit V for Vendetta. This was a beautifully drawn graphic novel, the art work was really arresting, though occasionally a bit busy. The story is unique, and layered with the whole humans vs. robots subplot informing the romance at the surface.

It was so good, the illustrator definitely did a great job on it! I loved the story and reading it was a great deal of fun. The romance and the ending felt a bit rushed so I had to give it 4 stars but I really enjoyed reading it.

Rating: 4.5/5 Synopsis: Set in a futuristic Paris, this sci-fi romance focuses on Elle, a young woman whose life seems to be stuck in murky waters, and Karel, a sentient bot (or as they’re called in the future mechas) whose energy source runs on the love of others while dealing with the casual discrimination against his kind. My Thoughts: Story (5/5) – I tend to be a huge sucker for stories about humanoid robots and their relationship/conflict with their human counterparts and society, particularly those that paint them as sympathetic individuals trying to survive in a world that still perceives as inferiors (i.e. CARL, Sky Doll, Circuits and Veins, etc.). Therefore, I inevitably picked up this title in a heartbeat upon gendering the description. Characters and Themes (4.5/5) – There’s room for further development, but the first volume did flesh the lead two enough for me to empathize with their plight and see more of them. While the “humans vs. artificial intelligence” allegorical conflict is one as old as technology itself, I didn’t mind it here as the diverse supporting cast of Elle’s and Karel’s friends and acquaintances made the narrative all the more interesting. Art (5/5) – The backgrounds featured colorfully chaotic gradients and lighting, particularly the urban scenery to evoke that sense of futuristic otherworldliness despite the more down-to-earth architecture. I also loved the soft, thin lines used for the character designs which added to the cuteness factor of the protagonists’ interactions. Dialogue (5/5) – There was a delicate balance between witty banter and emotional earnestness presented. Final Thoughts: Love Love Love 1 is a lovely love sci-fi tale from the depths of Europe I recommend checking out if plots about humanoid androids are your fancy. Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with my first advance ebook copy in exchange for an honest review.

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review from NetGalley. Love Love Love is a romance between a human woman, Elle, and an android man, Karel, taking place in a world where sentient robots are considered objects and are losing more and more of their rights every day. They can only hold certain jobs and need job permits, they cannot have cell phones, they cannot take taxis (only public transportation), they have to jump through hoops to get any replacement parts, etc. Despite th I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review from NetGalley. Love Love Love is a romance between a human woman, Elle, and an android man, Karel, taking place in a world where sentient robots are considered objects and are losing more and more of their rights every day. They can only hold certain jobs and need job permits, they cannot have cell phones, they cannot take taxis (only public transportation), they have to jump through hoops to get any replacement parts, etc. Despite the bigotry and oppression robots face, Elle and Karel are trying to make their relationship work as a robots' rights revolution looms over them. I enjoyed the art and world-building introduced in this volume, but the main characters' resistance to taking a stance, regardless of whether that would be in support of or in opposition of the robot rights movement - despite it being a central topic/theme/plot point - felt very weak. Despite the fact Elle's human friend (and ex? I wasn't sure) is organizing robot rights protests and both Elle and Karel even attend one, neither seem to have any interest in the movement - and in fact, the whole movement and Elle's friend, Poly, are mocked for being too radical despite the fact there is literally a plot point where Karel is in need of spare parts after a bigoted attack on him and Elle, and...can't get approved for any because he doesn't have a legal owner. It just seems strange and kind of nonsensical that despite how directly life-affecting this oppression is, neither ever seem to want any particular change and even seem to find the robots rights activists to be annoying and too extreme (and even becomes an antagonistic force) Elle and Karel make vague references that they want things to be better, yes, but it's a vague and hazy want that they don't act on because they're too busy being in love, I guess. I get there are people like that in real life even who hate taking sides and prefer to stay neutral (especially when other parts of life are in the way) but as a fictional story...it's boring and frustrating. Why is Karel so angry at being forced to take on more roommates in his undersized apartment but totally okay with losing the use of one of his arms and being unable to replace it? Why are both of them so accepting of the way life is even as they face the direct impacts of a bigoted and oppressive system. I feel that this story had potential but overall I was disappointed and the main characters' lack of involvement or even care towards such a major plot point really detracted from what was going on. I feel like there are plenty of other speculative fiction titles out there that do similar things but in a more nuanced, interesting way.

    Thank you netgalley for providing me with an arc in exchange for an honest review. I am new to reading graphic novels, and this one didn’t disappoint. I think if you are new, like me, you'll like it a lot. While its not something we have never seen before, robot falling in love, robots being treated in a very dehumanizing way, I think this is done quite nicely. Its an easy, fast, interesting read and I'm so glad i got an arc! The artwork was also so beautiful, in my opinion. Thank you netgalley for providing me with an arc in exchange for an honest review.

    A chick falling in love with a robot is a simple plot that was executed well in this graphic novel. The blurry artwork and equally blurry text made me take away two stars. That made the story much more difficult to read. I received a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

In this book, we see a young woman who falls in love with an android. AND, not everyone likes it. The concept was interesting bu this book didn't fully hold my interest the whole way through. I found it a bit dry in parts and really wanted more of the cleverness that I saw in Elle. Thank you to the publi This is my 2nd graphic novel by Kid Toussaint.

In the midst of all this, Karel, a mecha, meets Elle, a human, and they fall in love. There was definitely potential here, but the story felt too rushed and too many things happened off-page. We skip huge swathes of time (at one point I actually scrolled back up because it felt like I must have accidentally missed some panels to have got from one story point to the next) and therefore the story feels rushed and superficial. I’d have loved to explore the world more and while it feels like the second issue will do that, I’m not sure if I’ll be reading it. (I’m also a little hesitant about the way the story handled oppression. Parallels were inevitably drawn with oppression today and I think this could have been handled more sensitively.) The pink and purple colour scheme in the artwork was enjoyable, but the text was too small at times and I read this while zoomed in.

Both, we learn, are the result of many failed relationships, but the stumbling block here might be that Karel Rossum the bot is a cherish bot, a specific kind that has evolved its AI to be powered by human-styled affection and compassion. We know what he would normally be getting out of it – a sustained life expectancy and charge – but what would our girl hope to get? And in a world where robots' very existence causes flash points and counter-protest, what hope have they got as a couple? Don't get me wrong, for this is far from perfect – the way we're forced to see a parallel between the milieu's attitude to emancipated robots and our history's slavery issues is really thumped home. And even though they tend to be a bit salacious I think I prefer the more risque looks at mecha vs human relationships to what we get here. But I still found just enough in the world-building, the characters and the very concept behind Rossum's humanoid needs to give this three and a half stars.

Although Elle kind of have an annoying characteristic since she’s so loud for no apparent reason but she matches Karel because he’s a sweet Robot. The art is remarkable and I really like every detail of it. This also helps with the plot and the story, I cannot put down this book since the art style is amazing. In addition, Karel’s programmed life expectancy is mysteriously decreasing. But their life expectancy is making them clingy so much, and they all need love to be recharged. And I guess Elle really liked it when Karel did it to her. And as a reader this made me cling to their characters more. It breaks my heart when Karel could not even fight back even though humans destroy him, because the law of Robots cannot hurt human being because if he ever fight back he will shut down. It really sucks, it made me cry. But seriously I want more of this book! The end was a real cliffhanger, that beacon made my jaw drop! I can’t wait to read the next book!

Adding to this, there wasn't really anything in the way of really introducing the world and the characters - by the end of it I got the general idea, but I wanted more in depth information. The story progressed very fast for a single volume, an entire love story started and ended and I don't think I got overly attached to them, so I wasn't upset with anything that happened. Overall I think it wasn't very strong of an execution, while the idea was there something was missing. 2.5/5

There are those that think robots are going to take over and deserve to be destroyed and those that think they deserve rights and life. We follow two characters, Elle, a human, and Karel, an android. He's a cherish bot, a robot that charges his battery on love garnered from their partner. As the story goes on there are protests that get violent, a human who attacks Karel and a robot messiah. Things about the world building are interesting but mostly inferred and yes I know it's a first volume and more will be explained later but I'm still sort of grasping for them. All we really know is robots are hated and the word "robot" itself is considered a slur. There's a lot of parallels that could be drawn from the way minorities have been treated historically and the way the mechas are treated and maybe after 2020 I'm just raw on certain subjects. The story moved incredibly fast though. At one point we find out Karel and Elle have been together for a little over a year and that felt like it came out of nowhere. I was genuinely shocked when I read that. When it comes to the characters, they are pretty distinct. The art is amazing, I love it. The color pallets, the designs of the buildings and Elle's design especially. Unfortunately, with a too fast story and the story itself finding me at a weird time, I can't give this much higher than three (3) stars. Elle's roommate is gay though so there's a little bit of representation which is nice. But it's, y'know, a little. Three stars. Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for access to this ARC.

    This graphic novel left me completely speechless after I finished it. I was worried going into it, that it was a little on the shorter side, and had a lot it wanted to accomplish, but I had no reason to worry! The storyline, and sub plots are not rushed over, or completely ignored. I've never read anything like this before and I can't wait to read more, and discover more of the politics and rules involving the various robots and AI's. I appreciated having Elle as a main character, she was feisty This graphic novel left me completely speechless after I finished it.

I've never read anything like this before and I can't wait to read more, and discover more of the politics and rules involving the various robots and AI's. I appreciated having Elle as a main character, she was feisty, and sarcastic and had such a big heart. It's hard not to fall in love with her, and root her on no matter what it is that she is doing. Overall I thought this was a lot of fun, and unlike anything I've ever read before. Normally I'm not one for romance in books, but I was totally involved with Elle and her love interest. I recommend this to anyone who is interested in reading sci-fi or is looking for something that is a little shorter but still packs a big punch.

    In a world where sentient robots have no basic rights and are worked mercilessly against their will (the will that humans developed in them over time) a fiery, passionate human and a kindly, gentle robot fall in love. While this story can easily be read as a metaphor for any kind of person not accepted by society, it most often struck me most closely as a metaphor for the lived experience of refugees, immigrants and trans people in many, if not most, countries around the world.

Translated from French, the artwork is powerful and the various types of robots are striking. I was moved by this story, and I think graphic novel and comic fans will enjoy it. There’s nothing in it that’s inappropriate for middle schoolers, but the concerns and issues addressed made me think high schoolers and adults would enjoy it more.

    Love Love Love by Kid Toussaint & Andres Garrido is a free NetGalley e-comicbook that I read in mid-June. A very kind but temperamental girl Elle falls in love with a similarly kind, polite mecha robot, Karel. Dramatic beautiful palette changes emphasize a cyberspace lifestyle in a futuristic France, while the story about the outside world of the couple’s relationship appears sunny and full of ease, yet ornery, bitingly cruel, where humans carry resentment and hatred against mechas, and it shelte Love Love Love by Kid Toussaint & Andres Garrido is a free NetGalley e-comicbook that I read in mid-June.

    This graphic novel is a romance between a human and a robot set in the future. In this future robots don't have any rights, they are treated very badly. This book follows the romance between human and bot as a robot uprising is happening. The artwork is gorgeous but the story feels rushed. I know this is the first book in a series. The romance just happened too quickly which I feel lacks character development. I will pick up volume 2 to see where the story goes.

    Graphic novels are quickly becoming my favourite things! This book was so very interesting plus the art style was really unique! It was originally written in French and it's the first of a series. I'm starting to go into sci0-fi and I love anything robots so this was romance and robots all in one and I couldn't be happier! It honestly ended way too quickly, I loved these characters and how they were represented! I'm super excited for the next volumes to come out!

    3.5 stars A very quick-paced euro comic about star-crossed lovers. The art is playful. The faces are absolutely wonderful, every one of them. Unique robot (sorry, Mecha) designs. Playing with themes of oppression, the three rules of A.I., revolution and friendship. Sometimes it is unclear how much time has passed. Sometimes it feels like essential scenes are missing. Sometimes it feels just a little too light-hearted, considering the themes. I still loved it and I am waiting for the second part! 3.5 stars A very quick-paced euro comic about star-crossed lovers.

    The first installment of Love Love Love had me hooked! The art is so expressive and really helps you connect to these characters. Characters, especially the main pair Elle and Karel, who are really brought to life. The futuristic world is vibrant and colorful and designed so well. The story of love and oppression and segregation tackles it’s themes with tact and care. I really enjoyed my time reading Vol. 1 and look forward to the continuation of the story

    I received an advance copy from the publisher via Netgalley for review purposes. This in no way influences my review; all words, thoughts, and opinions are my own. Hmm, this book was... interesting. The premise intrigued me and I love different romances, but after finishing it I'm not sure I feel invested in the continuation. It's definitely an interesting interpretation of when technology develops a conscious and the ways humans will still be bigots and hateful.

    Still experiencing withdrawal three years after Detroit: Become Human? Because same. Luckily for us, this graphic novel offers a little bit of reprieve from that emptiness left inside of you. Think post-revolution DBH world featuring a Connor-like character and his human love interest. P.S. Kid Toussaint seems to really like the name Elle for his female leads...
