I fall in love with you through a robot is set in Tokyo in the year 2060. The third Olympic games are quickly approaching. Meanwhile, the story’s lead, who works for the AI Robot Technology Institute, is drafted to be part of a top-secret program that involves humanoid robots. Even though he had help from childhood friends Yoichiro and Saki, the lead struggled to reach his goal. Everything changed one day, though, when terrorists strike.
The book shipped to retailers, and sold through more than 170,000 copies. It’s Yamada’s first novel since 2014.
