5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful story 14 April 2007
Format:DVD
This fabulous story of countryboy Hideki Motosuwa and the persocom Chii which he found at a dumpster is really captivating. The storyline progresses throughout the series with such charisma that you want to watch it without interruption. Chii is innocent and naive like a small child, which makes her immensely cute and combined with Hideki's clumsiness and hysteria there are a lot of very funny moments.

The relationship between Hideki and Chii is somewhat like a father with his little daughter when he is teaching Chii several new things and tries to keep her from harm that is lurking in the big city. It is obvious that he cares for Chii, which only grows as the story continues and eventually reaches a climax.

It is the combination of humour, love and suspense that makes Chobits one of my favourite anime series ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming, but disturbing 1 Mar 2007
By ds VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Chobits is, at the beginning at least, the story of Hideki, who moves to Tokyo as a student to enrol in cram school after failing to make university. He rents a room in a house owned by his (attractive) landlady Hibiya. One of the first things Hideki, a country boy, notices is the ubiquity of persocons, personal computers in forms ranging from the small, cute pocket-sized to the full-sized and human-like. Hideki would love one of his own but can't afford one on the little money he has to his name.

Amazingly, almost immediately, he finds a naked, discarded persocon in the refuse outside and takes her in. This persocon seems to be something out of the ordinary however, seemingly working without any operating system or software, as well as resisting all attempts to discover what she is by the friends Hideki makes (including his neighbour Shinbo and child prodigy Minoru). Hideki names his new persocon Chii, but he is soon to discover that she has a complex and hidden past...

Hideki isn't your entirely typical anime/manga hero, although he's a bit gauche as a country boy and a ronin he's an honest, decent person and, unusually, not unattractive to women, seeing as how he's tall and reasonably good-looking. Most of his embarrassment around the opposite sex seems to stem from his relative isolation while growing up in the countryside. Indeed, most of the male characters seem to be given some depth in characterisation fairly early; not something that I felt about the female ones at the start. However, don't let this put you off because, as we discover, these first impressions are misleading.

In the early part of the series, the main relationship, between Hideki and Chii, is actually rather touching, like a parent-child or teacher-student one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chobits 18 Feb 2007
Format:DVD
Set in a world where robots are in the form of people and named Persocoms. Asaka truely brings this alternate reality to life.

Hideki has just moved from the country to the city and despite his facination with the persocoms, he's too broke to ever afford one. However his look changes when he finds one of the computers in the trash. Her name is Chi and she's unique, unlike any other Persocom seen before and yet there's a fault - she's missing the data she needs to perform properly.

Following a hilarious storyline, full of comical situations, which only Hideki could get himself into, we are taken on a journey to teach Chi of the world around her. Aswell as, ofcourse, trying to find Chi's true history and whether she is one of the legendry Chobit robots from myths.

I absolutely loved this story. It's so funny and yet really involving, as you wish for Chi to succeed in the world. Anime at it's greatest!

4.0 out of 5 stars Boy meets Persocom 24 Aug 2011
By T. R. Alexander TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Hideki Motosuwa is a country boy who comes to Tokyo to attend cram school so that he can get into university. While living in Tokyo he notices that everyone has a personal robot known as a Persocom but they are too expensive for him buy so when he finds an abandoned Persocom in a pile of rubbish he is ecstatic. When he gets home with the Persocom and starts her up only to find that her memory has been erased and all she can say is Chi.

The original `Chobits' manga is one of the best manga series that I have read and while this anime adaptation isn't quite as good as the original it is still very entertaining to watch. There are a few changes from the original manga with some additional episodes added here and there (such as the beach episode), some changes to chronology (in the manga Hideki had been living in Tokyo for a while) and the ending is changed quite a bit. These changes seem to make the series slightly more comedic than the manga but it still remains a very enjoyable series that is both sweet and entertaining. The animation for the series is good and the English dub is reasonably good. The characters and the setting in general are nicely developed and the plot is also interesting.

`Chobits' is a very entertaining series and while it isn't as good as the original manga it still deserves a high four star mark.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal... You must watch this series 2 Aug 2011
By Simon
Format:DVD
Let me start off by saying I watch a lot of films and series (both Anime and live action film), and every so often you do get lucky and find a gem in the rough.

I picked up this series absolutely by chance, not knowing anything about it before hand. To be honest I thought it wouldn't be any good because of the cover (which is easily to worst part of this product). However I'm happy that I did get hold of it as it has literally changed my perspective of the Anime genre.

Like with films such as Akira, Wings of Honneamise, and pretty much all Miyazaki films, Chobits breaks new ground in the way it deconstructs the stereotypical Anime narrative. Rather than making the typical, knock-off Anime which goes something like - a person meets a load of other people, they fight and bicker, only for the two main characters to suddenly falling hopelessly in love, then to find there's a love triangle, and finally left with an open ending - Chobits throws the rule book out the window and sets about analysing what love, lust, passion, and belong really are up close, and at what point do they all meet.

The only let down was the series lost it's flow in several middle episodes, when it descended into some typically silly mini-stories. But to be fair to the writers, they did have to keep the character/story development going for the full 26 (I think) episodes! -- you don't fully know any of the characters, or where the film is going until you reach the very end... when in the typical Anime almost everything has been said by the 3rd episode then you just repeat repeat repeat.

I guess the other criticism people might have is that the film is from a more male point of view ( even though I've read it was written by a group of women! ).
