Boku no Tsuma wa Kanjou ga Nai” centers on the life of Takuma Kosugi, a single man caught in the daily monotony between work and home. Seeking to alleviate the burden of household chores, Takuma decides to introduce Mina, a robot designed for home assistance, into his life. Initially, Mina fulfills her programmed duties, but the dynamic between her and Takuma takes an unexpected turn when he jokes that Mina could become his wife. Surprisingly, Mina takes this joke seriously, sparking a series of events that deeply explore the potential for emotional connection between a human and a robot.

As the relationship between Takuma and the robot Mina develops, the manga delves into the intimate and complex aspects of love and connection in a world where technology and human emotions intertwine. Takuma faces the limitations and possibilities of a relationship with a being that, though not human, begins to fill the emotional space of a partner. This development challenges conventional notions of affection and companionship, putting into perspective the role of technology in satisfying basic human needs.

The evolution of the relationship between Takuma and Mina not only highlights Takuma‘s loneliness but also raises questions about the robots‘ capacity to engage in relationships traditionally considered exclusively human. Through their journey, “Boku no Tsuma wa Kanjou ga Nai” offers an introspective reflection on what it means to love in an era of advanced artificial intelligence, examining how personal connections can be forged and perceived in new technological contexts.
