Chobits is another manga drawn by CLAMP,one of my favourite mangakas renowned for their other works such as Angelic Layer,CCS,X/1999,RG Veda,Tsubasa and more.It's been a few years since i watched this,and i have to rewatched some episodes to remember fully.

The story started with Hideki who goes to Tokyo to study in a cram school after he fails the university entrance exam.He discover Persocons and is fascinated by them.He wished he has one too and he got that wish of his when he was walking home.He found Chii in a garbage dump and carries her home.And so the story starts from there.

First,i really like the character design for Chii.She is perhaps one of the most beautiful female design i have ever seen.All the persocons are cute.But there is one thing that i dont like.I really dislike Hideki's eye.The eyeball is small while his eye is big,giving me the impression as though he has a wtf look on his face most of the time.Well pushing that aside,the others are fine.

I really like Rie Tanaka.I think she did a good job voicing Chii,but after a while i got bored,because her voice always seem so...........i dont know,dull?Unlike Sumomo who is very lively and refreshing,it seem like she stick to the same tone most of the time.Not that Rie Tanaka is not a good seiyuu,but i wish she would stray further from that.Tomokazu Sugita who voice Hideki did a good job bringing the silly and sometimes naive but good hearted Hideki to life.I think this role really suit him,just like in Kanon and Suzumiya.

There are quite a number of humour in here,particularly from Chii and Hideki.It is pretty amusing to see how Chii learn,such as buying panties.

There is nothing much with the plot actually.....you would find CCS "deeper" than this.Like Love Hina,there are some episodes that have little revelance to the plot.While i don't find it irritating,i find it a waste.The main theme is that whether a persocon,in other words a robot can develop feelings and create a future with a human,and the morality behind it.It raises the question whether love can really develop between man and machine.

The first half is rather light-hearted,but in the second half,the series switched to a darker tone,which i find it awkward and weird.

Overall,Chobits is a relaxing anime that has a mix of everything;comedy,love,friendship,humour,ecchi and etc.Cannot be compared with CCS,but not a bad one either.You may just find yourself falling totally for Chii

True.Chii is absolutely beautiful.Aalthought she can be pretty emo at times.Lolxx.This series is light and enjoyable,but i didn't really like Hideki as the main male character,though.I agree with romeoxjuliet,it does raise some pretty interesting questions.

yeah this anime is classic as you've heard...romance is top notch, heartwarming at times, comedy is good, main character yells too much, but it makes him unique i guess, overall a classic anime that you will remember all the days of your life

yep, the storyline of chobits is really different from that of CCS, but they're both good. i agree, CCS really had a purpose while chobits was more of just introducing what persacoms are and what they can do.

I agree, Chobits is a wonderful anime with a light hearted tone and a story based on that "love" theme. A good watch with great music, lots of humor, and very good animation style... and a recomended watch to all those who enjoy these types of anime.

the music by Rie Tanaka is definitely a classic. What I like about this anime was that it had a deeper theme of finding your true "love" so to speak. A little more philsophical for any of those interested. This anime definitely had its humor and ecchiness for those that enjoy a little panty here, and a little misunderstand there.

It's nice and funny.

Really pleasant and cute honestly.

My only problem was the line 'the one for me' or whatever context they decided to put it in.
It was repeated constantly and got on my nerves. (is this just the anime?)

Although, the artwork was thoroughly beautiful.
Chii, I've got to say must be the most beautifully drawn female I've seen and it's consistent (if you get what I mean), like she doesn't look bad even in one shot.
The storyline is quite lovely too..

I love the way that the characters are drawn, especially Chii. I, too, find her very beautiful.

As for the storyline, it's quite okay. it's funny and entertaining.

The thing about this anime that really drew me in is the artwork. Everything is just so beautifully drawn.
