Description (in English)

Computron — the world's first and only sentient robot — discovers anime, online fandom, and fan fiction. (wikipedia)

A story consisting of several fragments of text. Computron's first person thoughts, his chat communications with online fandom, and the comments section under his online posts.

"Fandom for Robots" was a finalist in the short story categories for the Nebula Awards in 2017 and the Hugo Awards in 2018.
