A review of I.M. which is also known as Aiem. This is a brilliant Boys’ Love graphic novel created by author Team Hagiming. It follows an unemployed 27-year-old neet who has no luck with getting a job in the modern-day world… where robots exist, just think of I Robot but set in a graphic novel form. Overall it isn’t a bad read, the art style is cute and the characters are extremely likeable. I would recommend this to anyone who likes graphic novels like Pond Snail Robber.
This manhwa follows our protagonist Han Siyoon on his journey to find a job… with next to no money and no one getting back to him, he spends his last money on a meal at everyone’s favourite burger joint. Coincidentally he is seen by one of his old schoolmates who offers him a job, babysitting a new form of a robot who is called A.I who learns from interactions.
Overall this is a very unique Boys’ Love manhwa, which is illustrated beautifully. Definitely for anyone who loves a cute story, characters and art style. As previously mentioned, if you like graphic novels such as Pond Snail Robber, then this one is definitely for you!
What I.M. (아이엠) Is About
A Small Synopsis

Where to read I.M. (아이엠)
This manhwa is available as an unofficial fan translation that can be found on scanlation sites such as MangaDex and MangaNelo. As far as I am aware, this manhwa has been completed and the story hasn’t come to an end.
What Is Good About I.M. (아이엠)
While the storyline isn’t anything special… it’s definitely unique. The premise of how the characters develop, the current modern-day society and in general your small everyday things is enough to entice the reader to continue reading.
The art style is absolutely ridiculously cute. I don’t care what anyone says! I really enjoy the way the characters are drawn and the colour palette which was used. I wish this manhwa was continued.
All characters are so unique and charismatic it’s really nice. Every character has his or her own unique role and this makes the manhwa really entertaining to read.
What Is Bad About I.M. (아이엠)
The biggest downside to this graphic novel… is the fact everywhere I’ve looked it states it’s finished. This I am not 100% sure on, but it would seem like the manhwa was either dropped or put on hiatus. I really hope that one day it is picked up again.
Overall, this is one cute manhwa that fans of Pond Snail Robber would love, I am sure when I say this. I would definitely recommend it to fans of that genre of graphic novels and I really hope that it gets picked up again.
