I didn't really get this one, to be honest. The set up of them being in boxes was interesting, but the stuff with the tentacles was more just plain weird than intriguingly strange. It didn't seem connected to the whole robot aspect, and it wasn't entirely clear whether the tentacles were part of the humans or the boxes, which was more confusing than surreal. It was still a more interesting read than most stories, though, and I had fun reading it, despite it not being quite what I had hoped.

This was so weird, not completely in a shocking way, but not completely in a thought provoking way either. The benign setup and placid background art makes you expect a par for the course heart tingling romance one shot. Then, for better or worse, before you have time to yawn things take a 180, except not really. Like all decent sci-fi this one shot creates a cohesive, if not palpable (literal and figurative in this case lol) world. And a self-contained world often always means foreshadowing that's unnoticeable in the moment, but clear in hindsight. All in all interesting, brief, and a little unsettling.
