Anime: DearS
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.

Anime: Elfen Lied
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.

Anime: Sora no Otoshimono
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.

Anime: Kobato.
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

Anime: Plastic Memories
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  read more

Anime: Eve no Jikan
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  read more

Anime: Kowarekake no Orgel
In Chobits, the main male character finds a persocom that has been thrown away. Similarly in Kowarekake no Orgel, there is a male character who finds an android that looks like a human. The persocom and the android are child-like so the male characters watch over them with care.

Anime: Ai Yori Aoshi
They both have an air of innocence about the main female character. The whole idea that love can conquer all is a theme throughout both series. They both have a fair amount of fan service in them. However, Ai Yori Aoshi has a bit of a harem twist that Chobits doesn't really have at all. They're both well-animated, touching love stories that I recommend to anyone that likes to watch romantic comedies.

Anime: Hand Maid May
Persocon = Cyber-Doll, helping "toys" that can help their lords. In that sense, they have similar motives throughout both shows.

Anime: Saishuu Heiki Kanojo
They both have a main character that is not human... at all

Anime: Ookami to Koushinryou
There are a lot of differences between these two anime, the time, the feel, etc. but the characters relationships are similar in the romantic sense. Its a completely different story entirely, but if you liked the romantic comedy in Spice and Wolf, then Chobits is something you may want to consider watching. 
reportRecommended by Hysvear
Anime: Hal
Romance and robots, Hal is a much more dramatic take on the issue and less focused on the robots themselves, but it might please Chobits' fans, and vice versa.

Anime: Rizelmine
Both are early 2000s Romantic Sci-fi anime with a little Ecchi thrown in. The main male protagonists are 4 years apart in age (Iwata is 15, Hideki is 18 - 19). The females are also 4 years apart (Rizel is 12, Chi is 16)

Differences

Chobits is considerably more dramatic than Rizelmine
Rizelmine is a Lolicon series
Rizel is a human with machine features, Chi is a complete machine capable of human emotions.

Anime: Video Girl Ai
In both stories, lonely guys happen to meet and live with girls who aren't exactly human and under weird circumstances. As many comic and/or dramatic situations take place, they get closer. As a matter of fact, one can say that Chobits is like a modern version of Video Girl Ai.

Anime: Cardcaptor Sakura
The both start out very cute but end with mostly romance and drama, and are both made by Clamp. :) 
reportRecommended by Tsukinabi
Anime: Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo
Romance between a boy and a girl who lacks any sense of independance. Sakurasou is a bit more ecchi harem, but not much, and chobits is more chick flick and it felt somewhat cliche by comparison.  
reportRecommended by DarkD1
Anime: Busou Shinki
The series are about personal computers and/or personal robots who help take care of ones every day life and happen to be the in thing, not to mention a part of the daily life around everyone. The main robot character(s) happen to live with a young man who is living on his own too.

Non-human girls with feelings ^^ Both series are cute, funny and amazing!

Anime: Akikan!
Akikan! is about a boy who bought a can of melon soda from a vending machine.... the can suddenly transforms into a girl, a so called 'Akikan'. It is less ecchi than chobits and a bit more childish but it is about a boy surrounded by girls like chobits.

Anime: Fruits Basket
Has an overall good feel, though does delve into dark and misterious pasts and scenes to give a deeper story that makes you wonder if theres more than meets the eye.

Anime: Aa! Megami-sama! (TV)
They're both harem with incredibly beautiful girls. Both guys are loserish guys who get a hold of their love interests in interesting ways. Ah! My Goddess has less of a plot than Chobits but both are great fun.

Anime: Mahoromatic
Both are stories about a guy who lives with a female-looking (very good looking, I must say) robot, and... both are ecchi. xD 
reportRecommended by delorean
Anime: Kidou Tenshi Angelic Layer
The plots of both these anime originate from the same manga-ka, and deal with the relationships that can develope between humans and machines. They are both very sweet and very emotional with a little bit of humour thrown in. Chobits is a bit more mature, however, and has a darker tone to the plot at times. 
reportRecommended by ryoura
Anime: Dragon Crisis!
Both series have a male character who "finds" the female character. The girls cannot speak much initially (aside from names) or have much knowledge, but they learn more and more as time goes on. They both also have romance in them.

Anime: Haha wo Tazunete Sanzenri
Main characters like to tempt to whatever comes to them and they support everything wrong or right to enthuse everyone around them.

Anime: Princess Tutu
They both have characters that want to keep the person that is for them and only them and characters that try hard for the person that they love. Also, they both have a surrealistic aura to them.

Anime: Rosario to Vampire
If you like the idea of the main character, being confused on who he likes out of many choices, then chobits has this.

Anime: Hotaru no Haka
Both have a protagonist who is forced to move away from home. Seita, because his village was razed, and Hideki, because he had to go to Cram School.

Anime: To LOVE-Ru
To Love-Ru is about a boy who has an Alien princess living with him called Lala... like Chobits has a boy who has a persecom living with him

Anime: Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
Both series deal with androids and have plausible futures. While Chobits focuses on the issue of androids replacing humans in a relationship,
Ghost in The Shell (Stand Alone Complex) takes on the subject of cyberization and highlights a few issues that would arise from that (your brain getting hacked, reluctance to be cyberized due to beliefs, morals, or values, etc.).

If you liked Chobits more for its intellectual take on androids than for the romance and ecchi, give Ghost in the Shell a try. 
reportRecommended by DeadSnow24th
Anime: Metropolis
Both of these have a main character that contains a great amount of power but neither of them are aware of it. Both of them find someone that truly care about them and want to keep them in their lives.
I think Metropolis should be given a chance if only because it was made by the godfather of anime. I'm sure that the creation was inspired by the other.

Anime: NHK ni Youkoso!
Hideki is very similar Sato (MC from NHK!)
and you could also probably relate Chii to Misaki from NHK

These Anime both have their similarities and differences but I'm absolutely positive that if you like Chobits you will enjoy Welcome to the NHK! just as well.

Both main characters are technologically retarded / slightly perverted / and have a few other social problems of their own.

Anime: Girls Bravo: First Season
The main character is very awkward around women, although for different reasons. Chi and Miharu are very similar with their clueless selves. Both are funny

Anime: Jikuu Ihoujin Kyoko: Chocola ni Omakase!

Both anime use a range of characters and events to push one overarching plot.

Anime: Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu
It should be noted that this show is defnitely more focused on comedy than romance, so fans looking for some humor will definitely be pleased; this show is one of the funniest I've seen so far, right up there with Heaven's Lost Property on my list of favorite romantic comedies, and unlike HLP, this show relies far, far less on ecchi fan service to generate laughs (though it isn't entirely devoid of it).

FMP? Fomuffu places the socially maladjusted role on the male lead Sousuke, though the reasons he's so awkward are drastically different than those of Chii. He is a human, though he's  read more

Anime: Steel Angel Kurumi
Steel angel kurumi is about a boy who finds and activates a humanoid ...like Hideki finding Chii in Chobits... and she considers him her master and will do anything for him. It is less ecchi than chobits and a bit more childish though.

Anime: Usagi Drop
First of all, I can't believe no one else has recommended this yet! The two anime's are almost identical, except for the female protagonists.

- Both male protagonists go out of their way to protect the female.
- Both male protagonists are very much older than the female.
- Both female protagonists are curious and have yet to know about the world.

I will guarantee, that you will not be let down.

Anime: Kimi ga Aruji de Shitsuji ga Ore de
Both are good example of series that cant really decide if they want to go with the funny comedy style or the all series drama theme, which ends up ruining both series quite a lot. Both series have romance, kimi ga aruji doesnt have all that much though. Both series have an overall plot which isnt really focused on rather they both go with a bunch of short arcs.

Anime: Rozen Maiden
While there is a love story involved in Rozen Maiden, it's a different one from what you're given in Chobits, but that's not a bad thing really. Our lead character, Jun, still finds a mysterious non-human girl(s) who ends up living with him. She still has a positive influence on his life, and he still changes his general outlook and personality because of her.

With that the girl(s) of Rozen Maiden is nothing like Chii. After following the directions of a strange order form for a doll, a case containing Shinku, a "Rozen Maiden" series doll mysteriously appears in his room. Upon winding her up,  read more

Both main guy has to take care of a girl.

The difference between these two anime is that the girl in Chobits is a ROBOT!

Both anime has dark theme and very serious drama and some ecchi moments. Although more comedy in Chobits

I think that relation betwen Renji and Chihiro and his problem with Chihiro is quite similar to Hideki and Chii from Chobits.

Anime: Loveless
The atmosphere in both animes isn't very much alike, but they do have some stuff in common.
First of all, a young, pretty character having cat-like ears with lost memories suddenly coming into a relationship with a handsome stranger.
They both focus on relatioships, their hardships and, most of all, looking for the only one person to love. This is often mentioned in these two series.
They are both very touching, funny at times and romantic.

Anime: Darker than Black: Kuro no Keiyakusha
It took me awhile to understand which anime is most like Darker than Black. I know that Chobits and Darker than BLACK are two completely different genres, but if you think about it they are somewhat similar. Darker than Black has contractors that are used like machines doing the dirty work of people without the powers of a contractor. In Chobits the persocoms were normally treated as mere objects. However in the middle of both series characters begin to realize that both contractors and persocoms don't seem to be just tools but they may have some life within and act like normal humans.

Anime: Busou Shinki Moon Angel
Does artificial intelligence exist? In Chobits, they are in a way looking for it, for it is considered the thing to achieve in programing. In Bosou Shinki Moon Angel, it is an issue of not a good thing, because they go against orders.

Anime: Ai Mai! Moe Can Change!
If I gave away how they were similar I think I would provide spoilers for Ai Mai! Moe Can Change!? At least... the main reason. Both series are cute in their own way and they deal with "fan service cliches", one being more modern and more in line with the times as it has added things in it.

Anime: Android Ana Maico 2010
Both have androids and question about; can machines have feelings/emotions? So far I have not seen the whole anime of Android Ana Maico 2010, but there is a small relationship between the android and another human person. The android of both animes also seems to have a secret with their owner or creator.

I think Chobits is better because Android Ana Maico 2010 focus very much only inside of the radio station. Chobits also have much more to offer.

Anime: Narue no Sekai
Okay so if you've seen Chobits and want more, then I recommend Narue no Sekai, or, The World of Narue.

Both animes have a non-human life form (female protagonist) and a poor male who is mistaken for a pervert.

Both are cases of loving the non-human life form and well, Narue doesn't look like much but you should really watch it. Give it two episodes and you'll either love it or hate it, like marmite.
