After enduring four years of high school, Hideki Motosuwa strives to get into the university of his choice by attending cram school in Tokyo. Concurrently, he works daily shifts at a bar to make ends meet, thus missing out on the world's latest invention—human-like computers called Persocoms. Longing for a persocom of his own, Hideki is met with a stroke of luck when he stumbles upon a cute abandoned persocom in a garbage pile.

Upon finding the power button, Hideki finds his newfound robot to be faulty and only capable of uttering the word "Chii"—which Hideki decides to name her after. Chii, however, is no ordinary persocom: capable of thinking and learning on her own, she is a legendary type of robot known as a "Chobit." Now, it is up to Hideki to teach Chii how to live an ordinary life and to uncover the truth behind the elusive chobits series.

Chobits was first published in English by TokyoPop from April 23, 2002 to October 7, 2003. Dark Horse Manga republished the series in 2 omnibus volumes on April 6 to October 12, 2010, respectively.

I gave everything about this manga a 10 because I felt that it was 100% deserving of it. I would gladly recommend this manga to anyone looking for romance, sci-fi, shonen, and an overall good read.


The story was quite amazing and well-developed. It develops smoothly as the manga progress. It's well balanced as it does not have tons of dramatic events, but it doesn't progress slowly. I think it's one of CLAMP's best works, and that's quite the statement considering CLAMP often has great story line's. I also thought the writing was realistic; the 19-year-old actually sounded like a 19-year-old, and not a 30-year-old or read more

Imagine: you are having fun with a robot; but not an ordinary robot; it is a robot that is human-shaped and can compete with your best friend because it does everything you need. That robot, called persocom (from personal computer), has a program that allows it to function, and of course, that program can be modified, according to the owner's wish. How would you feel? I bet that you would be glad to have someone/something that is at last useful. No more lost time, no more useless chores, everything is going just perfect!!!

I have to say, when I started Chobits I didn't really like it that much. The art was good, sure, but the premise seemed like something that had been done before and all that had been done to try to make it stand out was they'd added a lot of dirty humor. I decided to try to stick with it though as I'd heard that it got better. As it turned out, it did.

As I mentioned, the plot has been done before. On the outside, it's a fairly typical yamato nadeshiko series. Guy finds and takes in a girl with special powers who he starts read more

If you look at my profile, at my manga list, its fair to say that I am a CLAMP follower. Not that everything they do is perfect and is right for everyone but they generally do what they do right. But when I read Chobits I was disappointed.

Story: Take Hideki. A poor, 19 year old ronin student who can't get a job, a girlfriend and who has no life. On top of that he talks to himself when his imagination gets overly excited. And one day his luck just happens to hit him square in the forehead. Meet Chii. A very naked, very curvaceous...persocom? read more
