School Library Journal

“Important and relevant themes, such as fitting in and respecting one another’s interests, lie at the root of the story, making this title much more than just a fun ruckus with robotics. Building on all that it does right in the previous volume, the series continues to be an enjoyable manga for young readers that’ll teach them plenty of lessons applicable inside and outside the classroom.”—School Library Journal
