SynopsisIn the future, personal computers have developed into "Persocoms," mobile computers that look like human beings. Hideki Motosuwa, a prep school student, desperately wants to buy a Persocom but cannot afford to. One day, he finds a Persocom that has been thrown away and decides to keep it. When he turns on the Persocom, 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 Persocom. Having much better performance, it seems that Chii might be a "Chobit," a type of advanced Persocom rumored to have independent thought.

Can a machine love? This delightfully charming yet also semi-thought provoking Anime is one of my favorites. Now, on to the analysis.
Story: At the time, the idea of a sentient computer was not a big and new idea, but the computers themselves are what makes this series very interesting. Human in appearance and designed to hep with the day to day, it is not hard to believe that some people have found themselves in an emotional relationship with something that mimics a human so well. One that can love back is quiet the other story. Chi is the embodiment of true innocence and knows little to nothing when found. Her journey to learn to love is lead with Hideki, the protagonist. Her mishaps and the situations caused by Chi's lack of human knowledge is the most adorable thing ever. It also tackles different loves that are affected by the new relationships.
Art: I found the style of art and animations fit through and through
Sound: Its Happy and uplifting songs help the situations feel brighter and more emotional, and the contrasting darker and more dreadful helps add to the suspense. It does get a little repetitive, but not overly so.
Character: The character desing was one of my favorite things about Chobits. All but one character had a great deal of growth or helps for the growth very well, leading to true relationships between the characters as well as to the viewers.
This is one to go back and enjoy in one sitting, with tissue and popcorn in hand. Enjoy read more
Romance is my favorite genre of anime, so naturally when my friends told me Chobits was a good classic anime of that genre, I watched it. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed, which isn't saying that Chobits was terrible. It just didn't live up to my expectations. Who knows, maybe I had too high of expectations. The anime was overall kind of sort of cute and funny but it didn't have a "good" plot, and the drama in it was very dull. I thought the plot was original in it's unique way because of the introduction of a Persocom, a machine that resembles a female human. But the romance between a robotic human and a real flesh and blood human was a bit disturbing to me, because I just don't see how they can fall in love.
The story revolves around the penniless, perverted, cram school student Hideki Motosuwa who desperately wants a computer, but not just any computer; he wants the new Persocom. Fortunately for him, he found an abandoned one in a trashcan and decides to keep it and replenish it. When Hideki first activates the Persocom, the only thing it is able to say is “Chi”. Our of nowhere, Hideki immediately falls in love with his robotic girl and devotes much of his time to teaching his Persocom all sorts of human behaviors/knowledge, to the point where she even develops a personality of her own. There were some good moments here and there in the story but overall although it was heart-warming to see a man be so kind to a "lost" knowledgeable robot, it wasn't so pleasing to see a perverted boy hit on a robotic girl. Don’t ask me how the series ended. I just don’t know. I mean, it wasn't confusing but it was plain dumb, and there was no climax. The ending seemed forced and nothing made sense to me.
As for the characters, The women in the series were just plain depressing. Persocoms show up, men become aroused, women start questioning their sexuality and self-worth, well endowed high school girls go emo, it’s all just... bad. The men are just as bad too. They all seem to fall in love with robotic girls, over real flesh and blood girls. I just don't understand. The only thing that Chobits did with characteristic development was how Chi, Hideki's Persocom went from the start at the story from a piece of trash, to a loved robot that actually metaphorically had a heart and feelings.
The opening of Chobits was kind of disturbing personally for me to listen to because it sounded like a little baby was trying to seduce an older man. The endings were decent, but I wasn't particularly fond of any soundtrack in Chobits, which is saying something because I love most soundtracks in anime. The voicing of Chi fit in with her personality, but nonetheless it was kind of annoying to listen to all the time. Especially when she just squeaks out "chi" repetitively.
Well that's all I really have to say for Chobits, I didn't enjoy it that much even though I'm a huge fan of romantic stories. But I just want to say this again because I really was confused, would guys really fall in love with robotic girls over real life girls?... *sigh* I wouldn't recommend this anime to most people, unless you're obsessed with romance with a hint of comedy here and there. Thanks for reading! read more
As you might have noticed already, almost all the reviewers give this series a 10 on everything. This is offcourse not without reason. It performs top notch in every aspect. Chobits kept me entertained from the first milisecond to the last.
The story is simply amazing. It has a bit of everything going from romance to suspense. Although the story is quite slow it doesnt feel like it. Every episode shows the devolopment of the characters in a serious but also a funny way. The first episodes will give you a big laugh, but the mood swings over to a more romantic view the more it develops.
This show is probably something you haven't seen before, the characters evolution is something quite special. To prevent spoilers you'll have to find that out for yourself.
The fact remains that the evolution of Chii is the most funny thing in the whole show. It's like she starts off like a 3 year old child knowing hardly anything about the world and needs to learn everything. And without commen sense she does alot of things a normal person would reconsider.
The style of the picture in this anime is great, they don't overdo it with drawing to much details but it is simply amazing. Everything you see will draw out the correct emotion that goes with it. The characters are made really well.
Same as the art it is great, going from the intro to the story. The music fits the parts in the story really well.
As I said in the story, the characters develop really good. Sometimes you do feel how something is going to develop but you're not really sure. The show really does show a few unexpected things but after you see them they are explained thouroughly with a background of "how". This really adds a + to the show.
This show kept me entertained from the start till the end. I finished the show in 1 day because I just couldn't stop watching it.
If you like a romance with lots of humour but also serious parts, then this is the anime for you. Its a 10+ in every part and will keep you entertained.
This was my first review so i apoligize if there are some parts wrongly explained. Main reason for this is to prevent spoilers ;-) read more
Often in anime, the really small things can be what makes a show shine, or makes the show absolute crap. A single character may be the focal point in the decision of whether to recommend a show or not. The ending could be sub-par. It could be any little detail that can be overlooked by some people. This sorta happened to me after watching Chobits.
The story takes place in the future, where humans have built personal ‘’humanoid computers’’, basically robots that look like humans. These Persocoms, as they are called, are used for any job their owner wishes.
Enter our main male protagonist, Kyon.
Er, sorry... Hideki Motosuwa. I got confused as he’s voiced by both Crispin Freeman AND Tomokasu Sugita. He kinda looks like him too... Hideki is a typical village farmer boy, whose dream is to study in Tokyo, but he fails, and ends up in Tokyo at a cram school. He begins to wish he could buy a Persocom, but due to his lack of IT skills and money, he can’t. Until he sees one thrown in a dumpster, and decides to keep it.
As he switches on his persocom, he finds out that all she can say, is “Chii”, so he gives her this name.
As the story progresses, Hideki begins to realise that Chii is not like a typical Persocom, but in fact, could be, one of the legendary advanced Persocoms, Chobits.
The characters are in my opinion where Chobits trips and falls. The main duo, Hideki and Chii are what drives the show on, however it’s the secondary characters that are off. For example, let’s take Hideki’s new friend and neighbour Shinbo, who begins as a normal side character, and Hideki’s school teacher Shimizu Takako. The few episodes that are meant to put them into the spotlight for “character development” are SO stupid,
(SPOILER!) I mean, there are so many things you can do, but because the teacher (who is an adult, just as a reminder) is married to guy who prefers spending time with his Persocoms rather than his wife, she runs away with Shinbo, who later proposes to her. WHAT THE F......?!
(End of Spoiler)
Also, this anime features the most annoying character I have ever seen, Sumomo, Shinbo’s Persocom. Her dialogue at times made me want to put my head through a wall.
ANIMATION & SOUND
For a show that was done in 2002, the animation looks pretty decent. Well, this is Studio Madhouse we’re talking about. This was the time when digital animation was beginning, but the show still managed to pull off the two animation styles for comedic moments, and serious moments.
The soundtrack of Chobits is enjoyable, consisting of orchestral strings, with synthesisers for a relaxing atmosphere... The opening song, is one of the best I’ve heard. I didn’t like it as much from the beginning, but after listening to it over and over again, it ended up stuck in my head, because of how catchy it is... The soundtrack is also able to stay with the tempo of the story, so when things get serious, so does the music. The best example is “Dark Chii’s Theme”, which is a mix of upbeat digital synths, a 90’s style dance beat and lyrical strings.
I watched this show in English dub, and I really enjoyed the performances, especially by Crispin Freeman, Michelle Ruff, Karen Strassman, Mona Marshall, Wendee Lee and Tony Oliver... a really enjoyable dub...
Overall, Chobits has a great story, which (unfortunately) focuses more on the slice of life/romance rather than the whole “Relationships between Humans and Artifical Intelligence”. In short, rather bad pacing, which ended up in a fast bucketload of explanations and a confusing ending. Could have been done better, but there are worse examples. Good show, but could have done better.
Exact same storylines. Don't listen to everyone else, the stories are litterally exact. However, there are some quirks that are different between them: Ren is an Alien in DearS, while Chi is a Robot (Cyborg of sorts) in Chobits. There are other little differences that you'll notice when comparing them, but there's no doubt.. if you liked one of these, you'll definitely like the other.
They both start out with finding a random person/object on the street with no knowledge of anything, and the whole story is mostly about teaching the person about life. The stories are both very similar and end quite similar, with some differences.
They are very similar. Guy finds girl in the streets. They end up living together. They're both ecchi comedies.
Both anime follow mechnical "slave" type protagonists. Story is VERY similar. Both are warm-hearted and funny :)
This two anime are very similar.Students living on their own one day accidentally find cute girls which aren't human.They start living with them,teaching them how to speak and other stuff.Other people are looking for them because they're special and they want to take them away.But Chobits is way better then DearS.
They are pretty much the same type of story. In Chobits, they are robots, in Dears, they are aliens. Same kind of perverted guys in both anime.
The main female characters (Chi -Chobits + Ren -DearS) are very similar in the fact that they come off very childish and cutesy. The lead males are similar because they have to go through many ordeals. DearS is basically the same as Chobits, well except for the plot and the perversion level. If you liked Chobits, but you wanted it more perverted, then DearS is definitely for you!
Both of these anime are very similar; in fact, the first few episodes almost seem the same. Basically, a man living on his own comes across a beautiful non-human girl and is forced to take care of her. In the meantime, she learns to adapt with the human lifestyle and culture in a VERY humorous way. I would say the main difference between the two series is that DearS is about an alien and has more perverted situations than Chobits (although both of these anime are infamously ecchi), and Chobits is about a robot and has a much deeper plot to it. I liked Chobits way more, but if you enjoyed one of these series, than the other is worth checking out, just for the fact that they are so similar in story and comedy.
A guy who lives alone finds a hot naked girl who doesn't speak japanese and he has to teach her the ways of life. In the mean time people try to capture her because she's deffective. The only real difference is that this time she's an alien instead of a computer.
Premise is almost identical (except 1 is an alien the other a robot) and both are ecchi. That being said chobits is a much deeper anime while DearS is more for fan service
Pretty similar, both are about the two main characters falling in love. Danger seems to happen every now and again, but the rest is just them going through their normal everyday lives. After coming across their special someone, one is a persecom or computer while another is an alien, you see how it affects their lives and how their relationship slowly begins to develop towards the end of the show.
If you liked DearS then you'll most likely like Chobits, this doesn't necessarily work visa versa though. The main protagonist is a guy with little or no experience with women and somehow a cute girl (in Chobits a computer, in DearS an alien) has to live with the main protagonist. In both anime the girl needs to learn a lot about the human world which results in ecchi and funny situations. Chobits is deeper than DearS though, which is why I wouldn't necessarily recommend DearS to Chobits fans.
both of these series have the main character girl starting out with no knowledge...making it funny what both main guy character goes though =]
You know, it's funny because the whole time I was watching Chobits I kept thinking '"wait, this can't be right. Wasn't he much younger? And where did that creepy pedophile teacher go who's so into lingerie?" And then I realized my mistake... "Oh wait," I thought to myself." That's not Chobits, that's DearS."
Same basic concept minus the awesome/crazy teacher added for a laugh track. Chi is a bit more cute than Ren Ren though... but other than that it could be almost the same anime (it even has a panties shopping episode). Both are fun and purposefully endearing, but I felt Chobits was a bit more mellow. If you like one it is very likely you will like the other.
Both animes has these cute girls following them around, alot of fun here and there and quite alot of ecchi in some episodes:P
Though... this kinda reminds me of slavery xD
In both anime series, the guy takes a girl in who doesnt really know anything. They both end up living with that girl and start do develop certain feelings. The males are also pervy.
DearS and Chobits are very similar in many ways. They both involve guys who are clearly inexperienced with women. Then one day these men stumble across beautiful women who end up living with them. Not only are the men very similar, but the beautiful women are also very similar. The women in both stories know slim to nothing....
an average looking guy taking care a sexy and beautiful girl, but the girl is not human. They are both fun to watch but chobits has a more serious story.
Both males act and sound the same.. and even the story is very much on par with Chobits the only difference is here she is a alien and in Chobits Chii is a percom.
If you liked DearS I'm sure that you would love chobits even more. I love chobits more than I love dears simply because there seems to be more love and detication in chobits. Both are similar series in the fact that both human men found " out of this world" woman who need help to grown and fit in within society.
It's about a guy living with a female who isn't human so he's trying to teach her how to be human while protecting her
The story line between the two is really similar so you're guaranteed to like one if you like the other.
About a boy (who hasn't got a girlfriend so is particularly pervy) who find an extremely beautiful girl on the street except she's an alien. This is mirrors Chobits in that Hideki found Chii in the street and she's a persocon (robot). The story basically progresses so that at first he is reluctant to take care of her but as she learns more he starts to fall in love with her (sound familiar?) I found Chobits gets quite serious towards the end whereas DearS is quite carefree and fun throughout. It is worth watching DearS if you liked Chobits even if it is really similar because in both the artwork is amazing and both are really fun to watch!
Hope this helped! x
same idea of robots or slaves having free-will even though they supposedly shouldn't. also main characters are very similar.
if your into the whole "guy gets entangled in all sort of awkward hijinks after meeting a random humanoid girl" then these titles are just for you. the're all really funny and both contain cute girls that dont really know how to speak in the beginning
what is the common tread with two entities, one being an alien trapped on earth, and a highly advanced robot purged of her memories? you get one lucky ass guy that must teach them the earthly ways... shit, that's hot...
if you really like chobits then you'll like dears. both have the same feel and the guys put up a fight to keep their not so real girlfriends
Typical story where a young male going to high school/college has a non-human girl come live with him in his room, hijinks and harem moments ensue, both shows have a bit of drama in the background, and then the last few episodes try giving you a faux-drama that ends up just being inconclusive gibberish. So if you are okay with the same flaws and strength, then you'll enjoy the two shows.
DearS pretty much copied Chobits. Except Chobits still did everything better. The only thing DearS has on Chobits is that it's newer.
Both have a first helpless girl which develop slightly. Same homur, nearly same jokes and story. All in one both are really similair love storys which contain much of fun.
Both main characters live on their own one day accidentally find cute girls which aren't human.They start living with them. The non-human girl doesn't know about the language or world around them the the main guy has to teach them. Other people are looking for them because they're different than others of their kind.
The female protagonists of Dears and Chobits are remarkably similar in characteristics, despite one being an alien and the other a robot. The male protagonists are both poor, not so lucky with the ladies, average Joes that are blessed with these sweet chicks for no apparent reason. The story line, about the girl becoming self aware and the guy realizing that he cares for her, regardless of social mores, is more or less the same. Both focus on the comedy, romance and back story of the chick.
If you take Chobits and switch out robot girls with alien chicks you get DearS. It has a similar feel to it that kind of goes:
"Boy meets girl, fan service, girl can only say one word, fan service, boy uses his creative genius to name girl after the one word she says, fan service, girl falls madly in love with boy, fan service, boy's life is turned upside down by girl, fan service, girl tells boy she loves him, some kind of conflict, conflict resolves, fan service, boy tells girl he loves her, fan service, happy ending."
Chobits has a bit more substance than DearS but that's not to say DearS itself isn't worth watching. There's lots of characters all with unique personalities and the humor is great. They throw in some love triangles that add to the humor and overall its pleasant, yet humorous story and, well...tons of fan service.
basically the same exact thing except one is with aliens an the other is with robot/cyborg girls
=) Similiar story...Young man meets strange girl who is naked and their relationship develops...
They are similar in the set up. But thats it for me. Chobits is much deeper, the characters are better built and the whole story is more moving. In Chobits the moral aspect whether its ok or not to be with that "not really a girl" girl comes out way more. Both series are enjoyable, DearS more for light entertainment, Chobits if you want to get moved more and think about it. I would recommend to watch DearS before watching Chobits, not the other way round.
Boy finds girl. Girl is abormal. Fall in love. Etc.
Don't get me wrong, I loved both of these! Good watches, although DearS was cut short :c
These animes are incredibly similar.
In Chobits, the hero finds an abandoned super advanced robot called a Persocom, and decides to take it in as his own. In DearS, its basically the same plot but with a beautiful Alien instead.
In Chobits, Persocoms serve humans and have a large impact on the human's daily lives. In DearS, this also the case.
It's also the same kind of humor and similar jokes. With Ren (the alien from DearS) and Chi (the Persocom from Chobits) not understanding the concept of inappropriate behavior and wacky hijinks ensues.
The series both focus on helping the alien/robot adjust to normal life.
If you like one of these, I guarantee you'll like the other.
They both are kinda the same though in Chobits the main girl is a persocom and in DearS the main girl is an alien!
If you're just coming off of watching Chobits, and you're looking for more, DearS is hands-down where you'll find it. There are many, many parallels between the two series. First, the story is almost identical. Guy runs into a mysterious, beautiful girl on his way home, she devotes herself to him, and must learn how society works. Both girls are considered to be an anomaly in their "product" lines, and both are non-humans who's primary function is to be a servant to humans. However there are some key differences between the two that make DearS feel distinctly different.
The most glaring for me was the intelligence level of Ren as compared to Chii. Throughout Chobits, Chii never really displayed an intelligence on par with a human. Sure, you knew after a while she could and would, and her smarts certainly improved all throughout the series, but she maintained a very high level of innocence, which is one of the things I loved about her.
Ren maintains that level of innocence until she starts speaking perfectly, and with better grammar than even her other fellow DearS. Regardless, she still has a level of common sense that is basically equal to Chii that never really disappears.
The other major difference is in the male main character, Takeya. He felt to me as though he was the polar opposite of Hideki. Sure, they both have feelings for their partners, but where Hideki truly appreciated Chii and wasn't afraid or embarressed to admit it, Takeya is a straight-up jerk to Ren from beginning to end. You kind of feel like she's more a nuisance to him than anything else most of the time.
That said, DearS is right behind Chobits in my list of Sci-Fi Romantic Comedies. If you liked Chobits, you'll likely love DearS as well.
Both have to do with a super powered love interest to the main character. Chobits happens to be any Techo Wizard's fantasy, a super powered AI in the form of a cute girl with the utmost loyalty. Imagine a Self Aware computer that takes form of a human being.
Both are about finding a girl with no memory but both have hidden powers that awaken sporaticly in the story. Both girls could only say their names in the begining and have cute ears/horns. Both have ecchi. :D Only difference is Chobits is more of a romace and Elfen Led is full of violence and gore.
Though Chobits certainly doesn't have the same level of violence that Elfen Lied has (or any), I feel both are very similar in the setup. Both are harem's with a vague plot to try cover the pointless nudity/cuteness, and Nyu and Chi share almost every personality trait.
Cute innocent girls who only can speak one syllable turns out to be a killing machine and a super-computer.
Besides the fact that Elfen Lied is more gory, bloody, and lets face it- Violent, it has a big similarity with Chobits. Both the main characters have sides, They are named by the sounds they make, (Chobits is Chii, and Elfen Lied is Nyuu) Fall in love with the college man who found them, etc. Just watch it and you will see.
Main characters are nearly the same sweet mysterious girls. (Ok Nyuu's not always so sweet :D)
Elfen Lied Is extremely gory and bloody
Chobits well isnt
Chobits is about a teenager who go's to the city and comes across a chobit on the ground, computers that walk around and are interactive. Normaly female and resembles humans only beautiful and flawless.
He finds one laying on the ground who has lost its memory and of course its a smarter one that is a girl and is gorgous.
But has lost all her memories and says meow or meu something like that.
Elfen lied Teenager Finds alice naked forgets all her memory girl and also says meu.
Chobits is romantic comedy, thats surrounded by this mysterios chobit robot and its all about his mysterious feeling of love to this robot and hes curious should he or should he not. situation with action and events building to a climactive ending.
Plots are similar, but Elfen Lied is much more brutal and sad. Chobits for fans of Elfen Lied will be cheerful change after Elfen Lied.
Both series contain a chatacter that has lost her memories and learns how to interact with humans as the series progresses. "Nyu" and Chi act very similar in personality and are both reminiscent of a young child learning about the world and people around them.
Intertwining elements of science fiction, drama, comedy, and romance, Eflen Lied is another enjoyable anime to watch. The storylines of both are similar in terms of conflict that threatens the relationships between the male protagonists and the non-human girls. Both girls are also adorably innocent and naïve, leading to quite a few hilarious ecchi moments.
Although the stories differ majorly, the main characters Chii (Chobits) and Nyu (Elfen Lied) are oh so similar; they are both sweet and naive and can mostly only say their names. My recommendation is if you really loved the character of Nyu (as i did) then you will fall in love with Chii :)
Both have the same general plot (boy finds girl with special powers). On the other hand, their execution is very different. Chobits is more of a romantic comedy, while Elfen Lied is a psychological horror.
Elfen Lied at first seems like the polar opposite of Chobits, I don't want to give much away. Note: this is only if you want something more extreme than Chobits (ex. something more gory and ecchi-ish)
Both are stories about a guy that moves to a new place then suddenly finds a girl who has little knowledge and can only say one word and he names them the one word they can say.Both also have ecchi and both female leads has a dark past an have lost their memories.Both have some romance,but Chobits seems to focus more on the romance where Elfen lied has mostly horror.But unlike Elfen lied,Chobits is much more slow paced and can be harder to watch in one sitting.
These animes are somewhat similar because they both have a character with split personalities. In one of the split personalities that you will see in both animes are clueless and only know how to say one word but they will gradually learn to speak. Elfen lied is a lot more violent and the story line is much darker but they are both really good.
In many regards, Elfen Lied is very different from Chobits, but there are a few things that will appeal to those looking for something similar. A word of warning: blood and gore are all over the place in this show. Severed limbs, decapitation, and people just getting straight-up cut in half are the regular, and it happens in every episode.
In terms of the plot, the focus is definitely on action and drama, there is a love story involved, though it's primarily more of a familial one as the main protagonists Kouta and Yuka take in and care for stray children and run-aways throughout the show. There is a slight romantic side to it in Kouta's relationship with Lucy and his cousin (yeah...his cousin is romantically interested in him...) Yuka. It's certainly not as fleshed out and deep as the romance seen in Chobits, but it is definitely there and the tragic series of events that lead to it still manage to make it feel unique and touching.
But the main reason I recommend this series for Chobits fans lies in one place, one character; Nyu. Nyu is the second half of one of the main characters, Lucy. Suffering from a split personality, Lucy switches to and from her usual mass-murdering self to an utterly innocent and adorable girl who starts off only knowing how to say one word, "Nyu". Found washed up on the beach, Kouta brings her back home and vows to care of the girl. He dresses her, teaches her how to speak, and shows her how to interact with society. Sound familiar?
Far more so than DearS Ren, Nyu is almost identical to Chii. Her curious nature and fierce adoration of Kouta combined with her lack of intelligence and common sense place her in quite a few situations that are all very Chobits-esque. Nyu and Chii even look identical as Nyus being a Diclonious (a mutated race of humans that have gained telekenetic abilities and a "sixth sense") gives her a pair of horns on her head that look all too familiar to Chiis Persocom ears.
My only issue is that they didn't touch enough on Nyu in the series. You never find out where this split personality in Lucy came from and you never find out what exactly causes the transition from one personality to the next. Also, in the first half of the series, Nyu plays a large role, with much of the non-violent scenes involving her in some way, whereas in the second half it shifts primarily to Lucy. That's fine, but I feel like they decided they just didn't feel like dealing with Nyu's story any more and all but abandoned her role in the show.
Despite the darker tone of the show, the brutal violence involved, and the less romance focused story, if you fell in love with Chii, you'll probably find Nyu to be just as adorable of a character. Plus, if you can deal with the gore, you'll probably end up realizing the plot is actually excellent and just as enjoyable as Chobits, albeit for very different reasons in the end.
Both are about a girl who loses her memory and can only say one word. They also both have different looking ears/horns...
Main character lives with a none-human female. The setting and such are quite different, though the enjoyment factor is about the same. Plus there's the ecchi moments you'd expect from such shows, because of the circumstances that are brought up.
Ecchi anime featuring humanoid robots (Persacon and Angeloid for Chobits and SoraOto respectively) that know nothing about the world, a major fetish on panties, and many other similar circumstances, including how both lead characters met their respective robots
Angeloids have similar character design in comparison to Chobits's Persocoms
Hidek met Chi in a similar situation as how Tomoki met Ikaros
It's both about one perverted high-schooler and his robo-girl.
A guy's got a humanoid with limited emotions living with him, and they do some typical comedy as she develops mentally.
Both are about a guy who finds a non-human girl that changes his life making it more interesting. Both girl characters are seemingly emotionless, doe-eyed characters and know nothing about the world. Though they seem emotionless they care alot for their master and it builds on them showing emotion later. There are similar circumstances and focus alot on panties.
Both of these series feature humanoid robots on the form of girls. They also both have advanced technology and comedy. Also deals with robots figuring out emotion
Both are based in a perverted-but-kind male main character, and an innocent girl that doesn't know much about love or anything, and the boy has to teach her. But Sora no Otoshimono it's more like a harem series, and Chobits it's about a single girl. Still, both series are funny and tender.
Both a about a perverted high school boy who finds a humanoid girl and ends up living with her and becoming her master. Both girls don't know much about the world and have no emotions to start with as well as both having mysterious unknown pasts.
Sora no Otoshimono (Known as "Heaven's Lost Property") really IS Heaven's lost property for those who consider heaven to be an anime where sexy robots serve your every desire. However, there's more to it than just that. SnO throws a few great curveballs in the mix, such as BEAR WRESTLING and panty explosions.
Because of other Ecchi comedies like MariaHolic and Softenni, I never thought I'd actually like SnO because that's the category it falls into. However, it is surprisingly sexy and its humor delivery is great, and does not recycle trash as much as MariaHolic did. In comparison to Chobits, SnO is equal to or greater than it in terms of sexiness. I must say, however, that I watched Chobits a long time ago and maybe there could be some things about it that I missed. Still, speaking objectively, I find it sexier because although its not as... near-pornographic, it certainly is direct with its sexual influence. However, the sexy stuff is not something that hits very hard, because the blow is softened by genuine humor.
I wouldn't just recommend this to people who like chobits. In short, if you want Sexy Angeloids + MOTHAFUCKIN BEAR WRESTLING, give this a try.
Also by CLAMP, similar character appearance (Chiho and Chi) and environment design (esp the apartment)... also got this Picture Book arc but with different story... and both are wonderful stories
Kobato and Chobits have many things in commen. Kobato feels like a sequal to Chobits because of its cross overs, just like all the other Clamp titles. They both have a main female character who is "new" to the human world. They both contain heart warming stories. Comedy, drama and a ltitle bit of romance. Kobato and Chobits are great, and are also made by the same author - Clamp!
With some characters of chobits indeed only other names. I saw the apartment in ep 2 and some other same buildings.
Both great series;)
There are many of the Chobits characters in Kobato.
The resedent he stays at is the same, including the owner and her daughters, wich are the chobit twins.
The place where Chi works at is the same in Kobato, the bakery Tirol. Its very amusing and gives it a extra flavor when you notice.
Other than that, there are little simularities story wise. Id say for the overall enjoyment Kobato owns chobits in every aspect.
Both series are very nice, showing a girl who doesn't know the world very well and falls in love with a man who's indifferent (in falling in love). Both have similar graphics and endings.
there are characters from kobato are continuing in this anime. it's not the same but you could say some characters that are in kaboto in the past and in Chobits in the present. (also names, voices and drawing style are sometimes different). these anime's are both from the same studio
I find that the main Female characters are similar. Kobato is more cute and inccodent is the respects of the actual content but Chobits is more ingaudging and less light hearted.
This animes have some same producers!
If u watched Chobits u'll probably want to watch Kobato!
Some things form Chobits are the same in Kobato.
They have some sad and happy scenes.
They are very touching too.
A robot cannot feel emotion regardless of the circumstances but what if it can connect with human emotion to a certain extent? However, like every reward there is a price to pay and the aftermath really hits you deep down.
'Plastic Memories' and 'Chobits' delivers an emotional level of bonding between humans and androids that are designed to feel almost human. In the midst of it all, the lovely musics certainly did not damper the standard of the show. Touching moments are undeniably hard to ward off as it shows us what it means to have something so precious and alive being taken away from you whether by willingness or brute force. The character emotion and comedy scenes blend well with the overall dynamic of the world and you can't helped but to laugh and cry with the characters when an opportunity arises.
People live together with androids and have to deal with the fact that someday the android will go defective after a certain number of years. Both shows depict what people go through when living in a world with androids.
Both stories take place in similar future worlds where Android robots are part of your life.
The main story focuses on the main pair i.e. a human and robot.
There is reasonable amount of character development in both series w.r.t. to the MC's .
Each of the series tries their best to play with your emotional chords.
Both have a pleasant ending which would leave you feeling warm and fuzzy.
Chobits is very similar to Plastic Memories, but also very divergent.
In Chobits, they know how to distinguish a human from an android, where in Plastic Memories people don't. And even though people in Chobits also have relationships with androids, the difference is that in Chobits androids stay functional an unlimited set of time, where in Plastic Memories, they don't function for too long and because of that, Plastic Memories can bring a much more emotional story about a relationship between human and android.
Chobits goes more by the mistery then by the romance, but still it is the most recommended watch I can make you.
Both MC's work with andriods and both as well have some kind of romance in a sense of what ive seen of it
Both deal with the subject of androids almost indistinguishable from humans being present in society, but Plastic Memories seems to be more emotionally charged
A world where androids are a common thing and people live alongside them. The main character in each stumbles upon a beautiful android that he gets to know, live with, and eventually starts developing feelings for.
Both titles explore the similar lore of human interaction and the border between seeing an android as a living breathing entity or appliance such as a stove or a car. relationships are key in both series as the protagonist have varying views on whether to follow the discrimination against androids, giving them 'real' feelings or simply accepting them as man-made devices for varying uses. Unlike chobits, Eve No Jikan does not hold the same aesthetics's in design, there are more fine lines and deeper colors along with 3D visualization and some computer generated effects. This gives Eve no Jikan a more mature look then chobits which is more directed to a teen audience.
Both animes deal with humanoid robots. While Chobits focuses on both the human's and robot's (Persocon) point of view, Eve no Jikan concentrates more on the human's. However, both animes feature a story regarding the "borders" between humans and robots. If you liked such concept in Chobits, you'll surely have the same reaction in Eve no Jikan, and vice versa.
Both explore the border of similarity between humans and robots
Both of them are nice stories about love between human and android
Androids and humans come together and realize there is much more to robots than just tools and more to humans than just masters. The drama and the setting are the similar, too.
Both animes deal with the human-android/robot/persocom relationship. They both stress the influences and effects of robots, how they are oh so useful and labor-saving.
They both also express the taboos of human-robot relationships, whether it be love or friendship.
Both are also slice-of-life, though Eve no jikan is more episodic and chobits is more plot-driven.
