    1. I have no idea what s so appealing about this series, but it s definitely something The story isn t all that broad, the characters are mostly comic relief, and Chii is so adorable that it makes one sick to their stomach Yet something kept me reading this series, and I didn t regret it one bit.If I were good at writing reviews, I d give you a synopsis, then my deep thoughts on where CLAMP when wrong or right, but I m not, so basically I ll just say that Chobits is worth a try Sure, it s cutesy an [...]


    2. Una historia tierna, muy sublime y eso me encant Como el amor puede sobrepasar todo y poco a poco nacer en algo que se supone no puede sentir como uno, como un ser humano Simplemente me encant


    3. No idea why this manga is so popular It honestly creeped me out Why people find this cute I can imagine otakus loving it, since most of them are guys obsessed with doll and no interest in real life girls To imagine that most people in this manga falls for a robot where would the civilization go Is that the future of Japan, where guys spend time with figures and games Where they find a 2D girl far interesting than human girls wow, I did not expect to go that deep, but this is what I was thinkin [...]


    4. Back to my favorite mangaka team, CLAMP, and this is one of their mangas that I was most excited about.It s mature and has a boy for a protagonist, which is different from their usual stuff I ve read, but it s extremely fun Reading this I realized that Absolute Boyfriend which is one of my favorite mangas is completely inspired and adapted by this, and I find myself loving Chobits even .Chobits tell the story of a Japanese society where robots artificial intelligence whatever you call them are a [...]


    5. This series is adorable Both the anime and mangas are on the top of my love list They are pretty much like any other anime ever boy finds girl, cares for girl, others wanna kill girl because they don t understand her but still You will love this series, I guarantee it 3


    6. This manga wants you to believe it s a cutesy love story, something that teenagers and adults alike can enjoy.Don t be taken in This is a creepy, exploitative, fan servicey ode to submissive lolis The art is decent, but that s the only redeeming factor of the series I got through a couple of these books and just had to put the series down I just couldn t stomach this any longer Chi did not strike me as adorable , she struck me as a deeply creepy, deeply infantilized archetype representing the wo [...]


    7. Eight volumes total, read all of them several times in high school during my manga phase The plot is your basic We Designed Robots That Look Like Super Hot Underage Girls Because This Is The Creepy Future featuring an awkward 20 year old guy finding a previously mentioned robot in the trash Hilarity and much inappropriate content ensues.



    8. This is a really cute graphic novel that I would recommend for older teens, possible those in college as there are some scenes and situations in here that I certainly would not permit my 17 year old to see although, it s most likely what they think about all the time.The characters, especially Chi and Plum, are just the cutest and their functions are something that any technology nut would love to own, particularly owning Plum at least I would love to own a mini PDA that looked like a cupie doll [...]




    9. Warning Mild Spoilers This is a very hard Manga to review I am torn, on the one hand I loved the concept of Persocon s They are super cute and to be honest I want my own Then there is also Plum that is a small persocon, and called a laptop How awesome do you get Then there is the other side of me that felt a little dirty reading this Why does Chi s on switch have to be down there Seriously And why does Hideki s friend have to fondle Chi s breast Then there is the fact that all the persocon s are [...]


    10. Chobits is not one of CLAMP s stronger works, but it s an enjoyable read The manga obviously lacks some of the adorableness of hearing Chii to be fair, the adorableness of hearing her is offset by just how much disturbing the blank eyed blank slate girl effect is when it s in motion, but watching her march and sing the pan tsu song is endearing , but I think the manga s plotting is stronger It s a balancing act.


    11. This must be the straight boy version of shojo, and I m not loving it I always find the robot girl theme revolting and this is no exception There is something very disturbing about it on the positive side, the art was pretty.



    12. This one was way to cringy for my tastes with it s over the top sexualization, infantilazation, and consent issues Won t be reading from this series.




    13. I actually bought the 30 complete set of all Chobits series as opposed to buying them all individually, so I ll just put the review for the entire series on this first volume review.Chobits is basically about a guy named Hedeki, who is living in Tokyo while attending a prep school in order to get into collage next year Hedeki lives in the future where people have created robots called persacoms, which are basically computers that look and act like beautiful girls Hedeki wants one, but can t affo [...]


    14. This review will be for Chapters 1 12 in the Chobits Omnibus, Vol 1 omnibus edition.Original Review March 4th, 2013 Rating 4 Well that escalated I mean ended quickly, and abruptly Unexpected cliffhanger aside, Chobits is strangely captivating The main character, Hideki, is comically and on occasion, annoyingly immature, but endearing Then there is the star of the show , Chi, who, as everyone says at least once upon meeting her, is incredibly cute While the immediate attraction to the story is ha [...]


    15. Gosh I remember reading this years ago and really enjoying it, but re reading it now it just felt creepy The whole manga seems to be aimed at Otakus, with possibly the most fan service I ve ever encountered Not only that, but the object of desire is often Chi, robot with a child like tween personality and appearence So for Chi to be switched turned on by her private parts just feels so wrong Hideki is meant to be this comedic nice guy who s just such an average guy with all his porn and indecent [...]


    16. Okay, so this was kind of cute, but I did have some issues with it First of all, the female lead is a humanoid computer who is rescued from someone s trash by Hideki, who really wants a computer of his own He calls her Chi because that s all she can say at first And she s attracted to him and keeps throwing herself at him, which would not necessarily bother me except that the way you turn on these Chobits is by inserting your finger into well, hopefully you get the idea And the way a friend trie [...]


    17. I ve heard about this series and so snagged a copy when I saw it at the library.The art is nice and it s an interesting idea, but it makes me a little uncomfortable as some manga does, since the concept of computers designed to appear like beautiful women, which you entirely control, is squicky to say the least.I m not sure I ll continue with the series but we ll see.


    18. I am not much for gothic lolita robots I preferKarakuri Odette Volume 1Because the emphasis is on the main character in that being treated as a person mostly instead of a sexobject and or fanservice.


    19. preface i m a clamp fan i am pretty much doomed to like anything by clamp this series is great, and pretty much the animated series verbatim, so i don t feel like you re getting anything from this form or anything, but it s good It s definitely of the goofy romance genre, if you re into that.


    20. Well this was garbage, to said the least So many people seems to think that this is a cute love story, but I find it creepy and weird Why is Chi s on button placed between her legs One of maaany questions It feels like I m molesting someone just by reading them.


    21. Not as much fun as XxxHolic, but still a guilty pleasureat I actually feel no guilt over Now, if you ll excuse me, I m going to stuff my face with cookies and binge watch ALL the Chobits on Netflix.Also, panties, and the comedic use of them on ones forehead That is all.


    22. My first manga this started me off A great, sweet little series with a less than satisfying last volume but the rest is worth it.


    23. Read this about 10 years ago and it seems like an unpopular opinion, but I did not like this at all It creeped me out to be honest.


    24. I just have too many feels towards the manga of this and the anime The first time I cried for a cyborg and a human being that can t be together because circumstances.
