It didn't quite go as he had hoped. Azhai is a typical otaku who is obsessively in love with the most beautiful girl in school, Penny, but he lacks the courage and social skills to do anything about it.

When he discovers a technology that brings him a robot companion from the future, he accidentally programs the robot to model Penny's ideal boyfriend, instead of programming it to be Penny herself. Now stuck with a male robot companion, Azhai manages to reorder a female robot and customizes it to be his Penny.

But things get complicated when the robot Penny falls in love with the male robot, instead of Azhai, and the three live together in a hopeless love triangle. What will become of this terrible mess?

A boyfriend is a male friend or acquaintance, often specifying a regular male companion with whom one is platonic, romantically or sexually involved. This is normally a short-term committed relationship, where other titles (e.g. husband, partner) are more commonly used for long-term committed relationships. A boyfriend can also be called an admirer, beau, suitor and sweetheart.

My Girlfriend's Boyfriend - Word history - Netflix

The word dating entered the American language during the Roaring Twenties. Prior to that, courtship was a matter of family and community interest. Starting around the time of the American Civil War, courtship became a private matter for couples. In the early to mid 20th century in the US, women were often visited by “gentleman callers”, single men who would arrive at the home of a young woman with the hopes of beginning a courtship. The era of the gentleman caller ended in the early 20th century and the modern idea of dating developed. In literature, the term is discussed in July 1988 in Neil Bartlett's, Who Was That Man? A Present for Mr Oscar Wilde. On pages 108-110, Bartlett quotes from an issue of The Artist and Journal of Home Culture, which refers to Alectryon as “a boyfriend of Mars”.
