Synopsis

Hideki's just like every other guy in the 22nd century. He just wants a good job, a good car, and a sexy robot girlfriend to call his own. Until he lands a job, he'll never be able to afford his own 'Persocom' companion. Hideki's luck changes when he discovers Chi—an adorable but seemingly stupid Persocom—tied up in a pile of trash. His first robot companion turns out to be a lot more responsibility than he expected, and she gets him into quite a few embarrassing situations. It's 'boy-meets-girl' for the cyber age.

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.

Story~

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

Story

**********************************************************

The story of Chobits can be described as a cross between sci-fi and romance. Set in the 22nd Century, it follows Hideki, a poor, 19-year-old virgin who wishes he had enough money to buy his own Persocom -- a humanoid computer. By a stroke of luck, he manages to find one in the garbage; however, she turns out to be much more than he expected.

Personally, I found the story to be very interesting. I know that the formula has been done many times before -- average guy meets an extraordinary girl -- but I think that the setting and concept kept this from read more

Story - Poor guy finds a sexbot. That just about sums it up. There's something about the sexbot being some kind of weapon but I couldn't figure it out. Along the way people tell Hideki that a sexbot is not an alternative for a real human being, which I agree with, but Hideki apparently doesn't get it. The pacing is so slow it's not even funny. After about 8 hours of reading I finally gave up. I didn't find anything particularly funny. Maybe Hideki's virginity was supposed to be a joke? I didn't find it funny. Everyone makes fun of Hideki's virginity as if it's read more

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
