Synopsis

When computers start to look like humans, can love remain the same?

Hideki Motosuwa is a young country boy who is studying hard to get into college. Coming from a poor background, he can barely afford the expenses, let alone the newest fad: Persocoms, personal computers that look exactly like human beings. One evening while walking home, he finds an abandoned Persocom. After taking her home and managing to activate her, she seems to be defective, as she can only say one word, "Chii," which eventually becomes her name. Unlike other Persocoms, however, Chii cannot download information onto her hard drive, so Hideki decides to teach her about the world the old-fashioned way, while studying for his college entrance exams at the same time.

Along with his friends, Hideki tries to unravel the mystery of Chii, who may be a "Chobit," an urban legend about special units that have real human emotions and thoughts, and love toward their owner. But can romance flourish between a Persocom and a human?

Background

The original episodes 9 and 18 are "recap" episodes, summarizing previous events. These episodes were re-numbered for the DVD release as episodes 8.5 and 16.5, respectively, and removed from their original sequence by being published together on the final DVD.

oh.. it hurts to give this just a 6 because i genuinely enjoyed this anime in every way, but from a critical standpoint, its just.. okay! lets get the negatives out of the way first;
first of all-- hideki sucks. lets get that out of the way. lack of depth, basic perverted male protag, basic design, quite annoying, it seems like the writers weren't being serious when writing him, which of course isnt a problem for a casual watcher such as myself, but when you're criticizing something its important to point out. i feel like theres only one memorable character in this entire series, chii, ...

Mixed Feelings
This is my first review of any work. I challenged myself to write this time because I feel that now I have the confidence to criticize beyond the obvious.

I don't want to go on too long, I won't do a specific review of each episode or plot facts, I will do an overview addressing and discussing the nuances and ideas discussed, I will also go over the technical aspects, but I will focus on the essence of the thing. Having said that, I will move on to the analysis.

Chobits is about love. He talks about many types of love, from fraternal to love complexes, such ...

This show is bad.
The characters are for the most part terrible. The main character, Hideki, might possibly be the most unlikeable anime protagonist i've ever seen. The plot is no better than the characters. For that matter, the plot doesn't really start until maybe 15 episodes in, the rest is just a complete waste of time, fanservice and other pointless events. And TWO ENTIRE PLOT RECAP EPISODES. Yes two recaps for a 26 episode show. The actual plot that mostly occurs in the last roughly 10 episodes feels rushed, leaving the ending unsatisfying. There are some interesting themes regarding the relationship between humans and artificial ...
