Should have more readers for how good it is

Should at least be in the top 10 monthly fictions. Much better than some on there right now. Great fiction, wish more people would read it.

Unlike most stories on this website, this is NOT a fantasy. This, along with the story about ghosts(http://royalroadl.com/fiction/1499) are both great reads with great resemblance to real light novels. This story gives off a very relaxed, slice-of-lifey feel. It follows your average guy who somehow or another manages to always find some kind of fault in a product. So what does he do? Like any sane man with that kind if luck(?), he makes a career out of it by QA(Quality Assurance) testing products. This story in particular focuses on the titular character, the tsundere android girl. She's really cute. 

 

tl;dr: Cute story, believable cast, well-written and well-paced

I'm always looking forward to another chapter with Lily-chan.

It's not the typical RRL template which I found refreshing. It's a good read and it kind of reminds me of Plastic Memories. Just hope at least it has a good ending, rather please make it a good ending!

 

I've read as far as Chapter 33 and so far the plot flow is good. Its lighthearted, easy to understand and fun to read.

QA Tsundere should be Published and Sold

This work should be published and sold. 

I'm going to give a simple review. 

Style: The author writes in a witty style with clever dialog along the MC's inner monologue being the focus of the story.  I know the author is an adult because he speaks deeply about things that a mature person would.

 

Story: Character driven. The theme is Growth and Learning and being human. I love it. My only problem is occasionally the author will go on about unnecessary elements that really should be edited out. Like the whole the "tv dinner" scene and mentioning the messed up refrigerator, that has nothing at all to do with the story or anything at all, just edit all of that out.   

 

Grammar: Clear and good. not enough errors to even bother mentioning. Only pushback. Writer needs to learn how to use dialog tags (He simply does not use them) and that's not cool because there are several chapters you have to read dialog  more than once to figure out who's talking. 

 

Character: They are the sole reason I read this story. 

 

This work should be published and sold.

Clear character development, clear writing style, and an enjoyable read.  Took off one star in story because of the lack of a clear antagonist, even though that is part of the charm of this work.  Took one Star off Character due to the lack of character development from co-workers/boss.  And the lack of a clear relationship there.  Author may correct this later

 

34 chapters posted at time of review.

 

honestly reads better than my own work, good job!

The Yandere Darkling's Review of: How Do You QA Test a Tsundere Android!?

Up to Test: 42 as of February 15th.

This story is about a kid getting a job in the QA department of an android factory. Sweet, and simple. No catch. Except for maybe a cute laggy lolibot breaking his fragile heart.

 

Characters and Story:
What’s not to love about this MC? His flaws are lovable! His situation realistic! (Even has a normal family!)
Tsun android is simply cute. (Trust me, you’ll want one!)
Side characters: there was one I’d have liked to see again. Definitely expect her to show up if there’s a volume two (book two perhaps?). The rest were mostly just there, but believable and definitely have their own agendas.

 

Grammar and Style (Clumping these together because it was well done):
Grammar was great. I don’t believe I spotted anything wrong.
Telling is at a minimal, passive voice is balanced throughout.
Filter Words are mostly used for our MC’s feelings and actions, which is about the only thing I’d suggest to improve upon.

 

Thank you for the story! -and please notify me if there is any more coming!

Went to register just to comment your novel

English is not my first language so what i'll try to convey might be shabby but when i read your story i had the same feeling as when i read Isaac Asimov I, Robot or The Rest of the Robots and so on.

I love reading about relationship between human and robot, particulary when you test the limit of the humanity of the robot and ... of the human. It make you feels awkward, does a robot realy have feeling or is it fake? Is it just a program? ...

At first i wasn't sure if i'll read your novel but once i started i gulped it in one go.

Thank you for such a great story and i hope for MOAR!!!

Overall

A well written story with a cute story, great grammar, and amazing characters. Would reccommend to anyone that wants a cute slice of lifey story.

 

Style
The story is written from a first person point  of view and includes inner dialogue. Very well done and enhances the story.

 

Story

A simple story with a lot more depth than one would think. It's a moving story that isn't the most original but is done extremely well and is unique in it's own way. A few unnecessary parts of the story here and there but it doesn't really affect that story overall.

 

 Grammar
I didn't notice any errors.

 

Character
Easily one of the best parts of the story. The main character isn't a perfect human being and feels a variety of emotions. Each character has it's own depth, reasoning, and doesn't do anything irrational. Each character has it's own charm and flaws as well. A few unnecessary characters but that doesn't affect the story at all.

 

DarkClaymore if you read this thank you for writing such a cute story and I hope you will gift us a second volume. (*≧▽≦*)
