Chobits





swsource
I am not that far in the series, but does anyone else here like Chobits? At first I thought "eww porn" then I realised it was alot more than that. Its a good story. And the anime is alot tamer than the manga. They don't "Show it" in the anime which is nice. You don't hafta feel like a pervert if your just watching for the storyline.

Great anime! It's a bit racy, but certainly not hentai, but I've never seen the manga.
Scaramanga
I would HIGHLY recommend checking out the manga, as it had a much tighter story and certainly more poignant ending (at least IMO, however YMMV.)

On a side note, I suggest the exact opposite with the other CLAMP anime/manga series Angelic Layer.

I've just recently seen the entire series, I kinda agree with the "icky" factor of it, but at the same time it is funny!

I watched the entire series in two days, but if I had watched it like couple eps per day, I might have been put off.

Well, ecchi can be a bit "icky," but they really are two different things. Laughing

i dont know much about this show but lots of people like it. but it seems pretty retarded to me.

i wanted to try the mangas out, so i wound up buying the first one. sadly these are sold in a plastic bag, so that you cant take a look into it. i can imagine that the manga is good, but the translation was just the crappiest i have ever seen in any manga. even translations on the internet are far better than the translated german version of it.

What's wrong with a little porn in your diet? It's like the fat at the top of the food pyramid. You should limit your intake, but you shouldn't avoid it entirely Shocked

Chobits was an awesome show. A bit short and a lot of "fluff" episodes, but overall intriguing. I like how the show raises the question of whether or not love between a man and a machine is actual love.

Yumi is hot.

Chobits really does have a nice story line.
But I especially like the fact that the book that she reads symbolizes the story.

You are my new favourite person. Very Happy

For the record I'd like to say that just because there is a little underwear, Chobits is NOT anywhere in the vicinity of porn (unless you think a Victoria's Secret catalog is porn.)

I've read the manga and watched the anime. Not my favourite, but I didn't I didn't have to force myself to finish it either. I just thought the whole idea of loving a machine was just kinda...silly.
In my opinion, the manga was much better than the anime. If you can, read it first. You should be able to download it at www.stoptazmo.com

Or you know, people could actually BUY the manga! What you're posting are illegal scans. Mad

i think the ending came too soon. we never got to see what happened with the rest of the cast and we never found out how the sisters got connected and we didnt get to see what happened with our two main charactors. did they get married can chi get pregnant etc

Uhh how could she get pregnant? Were you watching the same series?? Do you REMEMBER where her reset button is?! Shocked

And I'm glad they didn't explore this further. Go read doujin if you want more story, otherwise I thought the story ended exactly where it should.

chobits is a very funny and cute anime..
i like this anime because chii is so kawaii..
juliox
Come on man how come you can say that Chobits was like porn, it seems that you have not seen enough Anime or Manga, but Chobits its a good anime, i also recommend you Naruto and Bleach...
cocobirdi
i love chobits! *huggles* i've watched the anime and read the manga, and it's definately one of those stories that keeps my attention.

and hey, it's not about perversion lol... yeah, it's more boobage and ...physical attraction...? than some americans are comfortable with, but whatever, i think it's just funny lol.
cocobirdi
oh, and if you like chobits, try reading Dears. it's a cutesy, hilarious story.
Rsam
About midway through it, Chobits as far as I've been is pretty average.
yukinohime
I love CLAMP so I've read the Chobits manga though I'm sad to admit that I haven't watched the anime yet. Just don't have the money to buy it.
But I really enjoyed the manga. It had a good plot and despite what others may believe it was nowhere near a true porn. It showed just as much as other under 18 mangas and CLAMP loves drawing pretty things including pretty girls or even pretty naked girls. They admit it. I forget which one even stated in one of the books that one of her favorite things to draw is pretty naked girls. lol.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Just don't be turned off of Chobits just because a few people said it was porn. Give it a try and see for yourself what you think.

but then again your avatar is naruto, which seems very retarded to me. Cause in the english one it has horrible dubs and then once you get to about 130 you get about a season of fillers. The fansubs even make fun of it and say how much they hate it.
Cthulhuman
Now about the actual show. I don't know what it was about it but I loved it. The story line is quite engaging, and I found my self not wanting to put it down. I finished it in like four days. I'm proud to say that it's one of the few anime's that I've actually sat all the way through.
Dr4g0n
Chobits is a good manga, it's like some kind of dream of young person.
Still, not everyone will like it - in fact it depends on the expectations.

Now I think I've mentioned this before, but I think the manga is superior to the anime, so you may not be missing much by not seeing the show.

Kids, play nice. Different strokes for different folks. While I may disagree with it (and think s/he gives no basis for their opinion) diddle is perfectly entitled to their views on Chobits. Just as you may think Naruto is "retarded" because of the filler. If we just filled this thread up with shows we thought were bad... well, what would be the point?

Sure, Chobits has a little fanservice, but as far as anime goes, it's really light. I've let my lil' sister watch stuff with 4x more fanservice than Chobits. Rolling Eyes

(No, I don't let my sister watch hentai, get off my back!!)

Overall, Chobits isn't bad. I believe it's that kind of stories that you either love or hate. But really, the manga version is definetely better than the anime.
hofodomo01
well, anything made by clamp is worth a look. the manga was a little better, but the series itself managed to combine comedyand a love story along with a deep philisophical journey of sorts
shizoo
I watched it all when I first bought it. It was sooo funny, but pretty nudity. I also translate this manga but then I was so lazy.. The other translator did it for me Razz Rolling Eyes
