Outline

Matsuko-roid was born in December 2014. He was created by the android company A-Lab, under the supervision of Professor Ishiguro of Osaka University. He is a recreation of Matsuko Deluxe, the No.1 liked male celebrity in Japan, using cutting-edge technology to create artificial skin and muscles. He is also capable of looking into the eyes of the person he is speaking to. Matsuko Deluxe's motions are analyzed from all the TV programs he stars in, so that Matsuko-roid can imitate his movements to the details.
