First time reading it, on my list for a long time, glad we are gaining more people, welcome leoat. ^_^
I read up till chapter 4, and I am hesitant to read the 5th? Does it count as 0, 1, 2, 3, 4? Since that is 5 chapters there?
Read the 5th it will be easier later on
Ey Miya, nice that you join us!
I didn't notice there's chapter 0. For this week, let's read up to chapter 5; and at the end of the week we can evaluate if it's ok to change to more chapters per week.
Count me in, when I have time ofc ... T_T

I even think about buying the japanese volumes. Words aren't even necessary to appreciate it and I already read it once.
Or are there English releases? Just looked it up, no there aren't. What a shame...
Alpha is certainly the most human of robots :-) Her robot features are only rarely shown (the one I remember is quite humanly though but I don't want to spoil). The one that the author as established is that Alpha time is different from humans one. This is probably a key of the manga.
Another key and maybe the reason why people love this serie at first sight is that never in manga has the end of the world been so peaceful. Yes, there was some big wars that have sunk big cities and reduce drastically the population but iit doesn't matter. It seems for once humanity has become wiser. People help each others, people party together. It's not only a robot which is full of humanity.
As for you first point ukimix, I disagree a little. I ask myself some question about her who is her owner, what is her relationship with him ? She is the main character after all.
This page gave a deep impression that she is glad even if he doesn't come back, and her actions seems to be not determined by whet her owner wants; as if she could be the same even if the owner dies or doesn't come back. So, yes, now I wonder about who is him, but not much about her.
