"A Cuter Version of Ghost-in-the-Shell"
This show is a bag of surprises. Most of the time, it's a cute, funny show, in an idealized environment, that really is designed to make the viewer happy. Then the series gets intellectually stimulating, showing the relationship between man and machine. Granted, with all the good stuff in there, one shouldn't forget that Ghost in the Shell is still the reigning authority of the Man-machine interface. But I was impressed.
I must say, though, that a guy who watches Chobits can't really mention to other guys that he watches Chobits. One has to see the whole series to understand. Just... keep it as a guilty pleasure.
The weak main character Hideki Motosuwa seems pretty lame, one of the few series that I wish Tomokazu Sugita and Crispin Freeman weren't involved in because they play really good characters overall. Another thing I don't like about the series is the filler episodes of Chii doing moe things like her adventures in going out to buy underwear for herself and the unnecessary re-cap episodes. The romance between Hideki and Chii wasn't my cup of tea, I liked the romance between Shinbo and Shimizu better. Chii has zero personality and I didn't like her very much. Yuzuki was a good character and my favorite of the Persocom's. This is one anime I prefer the supporting characters over the mains.
I'm not a huge fan of CLAMP but decided to watch this to see what all the fuss was about. The story is so-so, nothing too special. The cute and fluff factors are there but the story in general lacks something. I liked more the book that was mentioned in the anime than the anime itself, to be honest.
definitely a little ecchi
but get past that and the story's not too bad
again I recommend the manga over anime any day.
some of the robots are just super adorable <3
Not too much of a story line, but clamp does manage to make everything interesting
It started with a nice plot showing a relatively near future where social relationships are changing rapidly due to human-persocom (a human shaped Robot/ Android) relations.Here people r getting attached 2 'persocom',which is hampering their social life.Well,I can't actually blame them,because I'm hooked up with my PC 24x7..:P...This anime is based on such a relation between Hideki & his persocom Chi.Its a nice romantic comedy wid a little ecchi touch which eventually turns into a drama.One of the main flaws of dis series is that the story is unreasonably extended & way too simple.But overall it was enjoyable as 1 of my anime experience....:)
I loved this anime almost as much as Eureka 7, and i like that one more than food. over all feel of the show was vary intimate with good bit of comedy packed in to lighten the mood from time to time. there was even a big life style choice in there. a lot of good choices where made and many bad one to, but "Bad" is relative to personal choice. but any way i liked this one and it gets to be on my list of 10 greatest. i look forward to reading about this anime from other MT members to see what they think. and if they will do more with the sires, because all the plot elements are all still there to be used, even in the end.
I love it, specially the ending song "Ningyo Hime" is one of my favourite songs ever. The story is very good, 'till you reach the end though, yuo know CLAMP's work... One of the middle stories though is great, the one of the Bakery owner Ueda, I think it is the best story in the whole serie
Theme of humanity machine is interesting to me since the movie "AI" and "Bicentennial Man". So the
story of ChII just could not leave me indifferent. Secondary story lines are also interesting - especially remembered
about android, falling under the wheels of car rescuing the host.
OST of the ending is very cute and lovely
Chobits was one of the first manga series I ever purchased and read completely. I loved the concept of human computers, and I loved the idea of a 'forbidden' romance between both Chi and Hideki. It's a very sweet series to read if you ever get the chance.
In the future, personal computers have developped into "Persocons", mobile computers that look like human beings. Hideki Motosuwa, a prep school student, desperately wants to buy a Persocon but cannot afford to. One day he finds a Persocon that has been thrown away and decides to keep it. When he turns on the Persocon, all she can say is "Chii" so he decides to name her that. After a while it starts to become apparent that Chii is more than an average Persocon. Having much better performance, it seems that Chii might be a "Chobit", a type of advanced Persocon rumoured to have independent thought.
watched this series some years ago... quite good! i like the plot and all. i own the manga n.1
a little sad anime! apart some scenes like at the start: "hideki *indicates* uh! hideki! *indicates* hidekii *indicates*" lol
some scenes are unforgettable.. that anime reminds me how much peolple can feel alone..
Hideki ! I doubt see this series, I was told of it and decided to see it. and I liked it. has romance and comedy situation which border on the modest, very balanced. Is the anime where sometimes you wonder: how great would that kind of relationship exists?. I put "thumbs up"
Very good and cute story. There could've been more romance at the end though. :P But other than that I though it was a very cute and sweet story. I wish though that she was a real girl and not a robot. But it was cute to see her clueless sometimes xD
i found chobits very interisting and alot of fun to watch it was tuching and very exciting at times and had alot of cute and funny moments with everyones favorite and adorable persicom chii it just started out like any other series but then got interisting and more and more funny and exciting as it went and the later it got it got more into a more investigative story rather then funny
Wtheck, I heard this was a children's show!!! Thank goodness the anime wasn't as risque as the manga. But seriously, I KNOW this is a great series but I never really got the point of the whole thing. Like, why did she lose her memories? Why can't they just build another chobits? WHY THE HELL DOES HER VAGINA TURN HER OFF??? All these things are just kinda like wtf moments to me. Don't get me wrong it's a great series but... let's be honest, it was as much hentai as CLAMP could get, I think they were just bored or something I swear. The series was WAY too dirty, it revolved around love and sex too much.
At first, I didn't want to watch this but after my friend recommended it to me and lent me her DVD, I started watching it. A very funny romantic anime. I was lucky someone recommended it to me. I love the robot concept and the story is nice. I enjoyed it and I really love the art. My favorite part is probably the 'pantsu' part. Hehe. Just watch it and you'll laugh. It's really enjoyable.
