SynopsisIkuhara Takeya is a high school student living a normal life. He is not interested in the commotion around a UFO filled with beautiful alien females that crashed on earth a year ago. The aliens, known as DearS, are deciding to take permanent residence on earth. What no one knows is that these aliens are a slave species whose sole purpose is to serve and please their masters. One day, Takeya spots a person shivering behind some bushes. This person, Ren, is one of the DearS, and after being saved by Takeya she chooses him as her master. Takeya, who doesn't know about the master-slave relationship of DearS, tries to teach Ren the normal lifestyle of the people on earth, though he constantly fears that Ren is an evil alien who's trying to brainwash him. Ren, however, isn't like other DearS. She is in fact malfunctioning and is being tracked down by their leader. Meanwhile, Takeya begins to learn more about DearS, and a mythical DearS relationship called “Gift” begins to develop between them.

It's a cute little short series animé, similar to Chobits from what I've seen of Chobits, but hey, if you like that sort of thing, DearS does it pretty well. Some of the fanservicey stuff in this is SO over-the-top it's past the point of annoying and more towards the point of amusing, because I don't think they took themselves completely seriously.
So, who should watch this? If you want a relatively light-hearted plot with some situational comedy, sort of your typical high school thing and a fair bit of cuteness and a mild bit of seriousness, this isn't a bad choice. If you're up for something with lots of depth, void of the typical animé tropes, you probably won't like it.
The one thing that irritated me a little is that it ended a little abruptly. Something a lot of animé tends to do, though.
Overall, it's worth trying if you're looking for something light and don't have a lot of time to invest, since it's a relatively short series at only 12 episodes. I find it's good to watch something silly and cute like this especially if you're watching some other heavier stuff. (Aristotle says: "Balance is good!") read more
DearS is a combination of a failed Chobits clone (lacking any of the warmth that made that series so endearing) and, depending on your gender, offensive pro-slave rubbish. It's also uneventful, lacking a story and instead containing the same perverted nonsense you've seen before already until the episode count reaches 12-13.
To start with, the premise is beyond dumb. A UFO crashes into Japan, 150 aliens - who happen to be submissive hotties - emerge, and they're welcomed by the world. Because humans are, as we all know, kind and understanding creatures by nature, no attempts were made to capture and experiment on the aliens. It's the sort of plot element that would only work in a hentai. Or Melody of Oblivion.
...Oh, yes, hentai material. Have I covered the part where DearS all wear dog collars and are happy to be slaves, doing whatever their master wants, including sex? It's like sitting through the wet dream of a pre-pubescent retard. I'm sure most female viewers would find it slightly offensive to see females wearing dog collars and being happy to get in the kitchen when told - a great fan pleasing idea.
As for the characters, Ren (the Chi of DearS) is blank, having zero personality. She also looks bad because of the crappy art - not at all fap worthy. And Takeya, the lucky lead, is a complete arsehole, never being a man and always being a complete fuck to Ren. He even tells her to go home and cook his food, also ordering her to clean his room. He lacks any likability. The only character with any depth whatsoever in this mess is the pink-haired DearS, whose name I've already forgot.
On the plus side, DearS is easy to watch. It's so simple and stupid that it's possible to watch it for four hours, miss lines of dialogue and still understand what's going on. If you happen to be brain-dead or are looking for something that's easy to watch, despite being dull, DearS is for you. I only managed to sit through it all because I wasn't required to use my brain and could just chill.
Alongside Melody of Oblivion, DearS has made for a great start to going through my DVD backlog. I can't wait to have a look at Petite Princess Yucie and A Little Snow Fairy Sugar. By the end of watching all the wonderful series I've collected on DVD, my mental state might reach the stage where life will seem too painful...
Overall, I suggest avoiding DearS unless A) your dream woman wears a dog collar and stays in the kitchen or B) you're an idiot who paid money for the series because it's an OOP Geneon title. Stick to Chobits and avoid this poor attempt at copying it. read more
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.
again, a boy is having a sexy cute girl alone with him in his appartment =]
if you have watched chobits
then try dears
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 :)
Dears has actually the same story than Chobits.
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.
The story is very similar
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 =]
Completly alike. If you loved Chobits, you'll love DearS.
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
Aliens instead of Persocon's
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.
It's like Chobits but with Aliens instead of Persecoms.
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.
Sadly I haven`t read the Sora no Otoshimono manga, but judging from the description of it DearS seams very similar to it:
A male protagonist encounters an "angel", later meets a second tsundere-like angel and has an female childhood friend. Though Mitsuki seems to differ from Neneko.
Both are ecchi series.
Both have similar feel to it a boy find an alien/angel boy not want the alien/angel around than crazy insanity in sues. It has the whole master thing going on collars around the neck and clueless "pets" what more can I say both are very similar.
almost the same anime specialy with the whole "master" thing
A dude has an alien slave with a metal ring around her neck pledge to serve him, and his female childhood friend isn't too thrilled.
Both main characters find a cute girl which aren't human.They start living with them. The non-human girl doesn't know about the 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. Also the girls both have collars.
The supernatural female is somehow attached to the male
They do contain similar ideas in plot, and have similar styles of art. All in all, I enjoyed them both for the same reasons.
a fun echhi, harem anime
both the anime's have a girl who becomes the slave of the guy
nd they call him master
+ they have awesome body(boobs i mean)
These anime are basically the same exact anime's with different carachters and a bit more story.
Both have girls Ikaros/Ren aren't human
Both the males Tomoki/Takeya act in a similar way but Tomoki is alittle more ecchi
Both have the girls serve their master after they were found out of nowhere
The girls have secret abilitys non human like
The girls are similar on how they act as well and how they treat their master.
if you liked DearS you would like Sora no Otoshimono, the whole slave/master thing drives in them both wit the whole big breast thing going on.
Very ecchi yet entertaining.
I watched the entire series of Heavens Lost Property and Heavens Lost Property Forte, not including the OVAs. The dears from the show are basically aliens that live their lives being slaves and they don't mind.
Heavens Lost Property is similar because the Angeloids main purpose is to serve their masters. Both series are really good though and I'm currently reading the Heavens Lost Property manga.
Both animes have a similar master servant relationship with the male lead the master and the female lead the servant or slave. Both animes are loaded with comedy and ecchi. Although DearS has relatively less comedy and ecchi as compared to Sora no Otoshimono.
This show lacks the action that is brought by Sora no Otoshimono, even if there wasn't much to begin with. However this show definitely has more just as much if not more comedy to it, also the show completely reminds me of Sora no Otoshimono with the characters as well as the story. The animation lacks slightly, not a lot but still a little bit, however I almost thought DearS was better in my opinion.
they have very i mean similar story's both girls are program to serve one's master and both have child hood friends that like him and wake him up in the frist sceen but whats different it is the main characters DearS isnt a pervert and Sora no Otoshimono is one a big one at that plus Sora no Otoshimono is hole lot more actin pack
also in DearS the relationship is all most like Chobits well kinda in both
after watch it you might these story's are almost carbon copys
First thing I thought of when watching Heavens lost property was "This reminds of DearS". They both involve a guy who randomly encounters an alien, in DearS it is a DearS, in HLP, it's an Angeloid.
