When a 21 year old computer geek, Akira finally saves enough money to buy a computer, a model 9821, he rushes to the store to find it sold out in five minutes! On his way home, a man tries to sell him the same PC he just tried to buy... or does he? He finds it isn't quite a personal computer. Instead of a 9821, the man on the street sold him a model 2198. In a nutshell, the 2198 model is a new super advanced "bio-type" girl shaped computer named Mimi. She needs constant memory upgrades, which come in the form of Akira's "active molecules," out of his "installer." Yup, life is good, considering Akira's new computer follows him to school, all the while being attacked by other bio-type computers. Oh well, better start on more of those memory upgrades Akira!

Before there was Chobits, there was this
20 September 2005 | by megawhoositsSee all my reviews

In this soft-core hentai (VERY soft core, but still very sexual), computer geek Akira has been saving up for years to buy himself a computer. After missing a sale, a mysterious stranger sells him a computer, which he takes home, and finds to be in the form of a teenage girl. This human cyborg personal computer repeatedly requires 'molecular input' from Akira, via her 'rear' or 'front' drive.

Without knowing how long this series is, I have watched the first couple of episodes, and I'm impressed with the amount of plot this series has shown so far. Mimi's powers are almost magical in nature, and the show plays with various analogies between digital devices and sex. It actually reminds me more of "Video Girl Ai" or even "Ah! My Goddess", and I suppose, would sort of fall into that small genre.

It's a bit on the dated side now, and a bit cheesy, but so far, I like it.
