About

Emmy The Robot is a webcomic written and drawn by Dominic Cellini about an android nanny, or "Nandroid," named Emmy. In the comic, this innocently naive character hopes to make the best of her new life as the caretaker for the Delaire family. The webcomic has led to a growing fandom, most noticeably on 4chan.

History

Dominic Cellini posted the first official chapter of Emmy The Robot on his Twitter[1] account on July 20th, 2019, right after her character reveal,[2] and published new chapters from then onwards, as well as on Instagram.[3] The tweet featuring Emmy's character design (shown below) received over 1,100 likes and 197 retweets in over one year. Starting April 5th, 2020, he also uploaded every chapter linked to the narrative plot on Webtoons[4] for easier readability.

Plot

The story revolves around Emmy, a newly assembled and educated gynoid robot, whose purpose is to be shipped to a family and become their servant and nursemaid. Chapters 3 to 14 focus on the Sterling Robotics company's lore and its methods of formation and marketing, while chapters 16 and beyond start after a four-year hiatus to show the daily life of Emmy, one of several Nandroids in an elite district, who is at the service of the Delaire family, especially their daughter Madeline. Most of the webcomic's humor comes from the confrontation of the machine-like reasoning of the Nandroids to the everyday events.

Reception

The silly and wholesome adventures of Emmy attracted a considerable number of fans both on Twitter (Cellini's account reaching more than 15,000 followers), Instagram (with 166,000 followers) and Webtoons (with 47,500 followers and a score of 9.86/10 in October 2020).

Fandom

The Nandroid universe caught the attention of many 4chan members, who were responsible for a lot of the fan art, both of Emmy and other official characters and of original Nandroid characters. The amount of fan art justified the creation of a dedicated imageboard on Booru.org.[5] Part of this enthusiasm can be attributed to the nature of Nandroids, pretty and obliging female-looking entities, which makes them ideal waifus for many people, as well as those intrigued by Robot Fetishism.
