I have heard how awful and sexist this show is from many reliable sources. But I wanted to find out just how terrible it was for myself. As it turns out the show is worse than anything I could have imagined. Yes it was worse than seven evangleion shows, yes you read that right seven of them.

Chobits has a lot of problems the fist one I noticed was how horrible the main character of the show is. All he does is day dream about porn and molest a robot girl who seems to be about 12. I had just figured from hearing the premise of the show it would be a rainbow painted ghost in the shell, regarding the idea can machines think and feel.

No such luck, it quickly degenerated in to a boring harem anime. For some reason girls just fall all over this moron. I guess it's so the otaku can keep their dream of being a huge loser who can't get in to college is still able to get a hot girlfriend who beckons to your every whim, yeah keep that pipe dream alive guys. But what sets this show part from other stupid harem animes is that he doesn't pick a living girl no he picks a damn robot. A 12 year old child robot I might add.

My eyes nearly rolled in to the back of my head when I saw that the droids on switch was in her cooter. Why not just cal it a sex droid instead of a persacon? I guess otaku just love wanking off to emotionless physically undeveloped girls like chi or rei from evangleion. I could go on for hours about how much I hate this show, but I think I have said enough. It's hard to think this show was written by women. Since it has to be the most sexist piece of garbage I have ever seen. I couldn't even make it though 2 episodes of this crap, I just read what happens. And the plot is just as asinine as I figured it would be. So in summation I hate chobits, and you should too.

I LOVE CHOBITS!yah i got to agree.......... and Darth Tyranus, u kinda wrong... i dun see tht tht so called "moron" ( Motosuwa ) eva molest tht robot actually on purpose (except the time he searching 4 the switch button, but tht is reasonable enogh) . The truth is, He always consider tht robot as a "person" and treat her like a person. =,= i dun seems to remmber i saw he on purpose molest/ strip her in any of 24 episode including 3 speacial epi -_-. But wut i know is, he try to resque her from danger ( even resque her from becoming a part of peep/ striper show). XD~ But thts wut ur opinion rite... ^.^

ok,i understand you dont like chobits,but we shouldnt too cause you say so
you say episodes,which must mean you saw the anime,which is trash,read the manga. Chii on switch was put there by her "father" i guess in hopes that shell never be used for sex. if she were to have sexual relations with anyone,then she would reset and loose her "personality" so it was put there for good reason.
and shes not 12...she doesnt have an age,nor does any other persocom...cause their robots,they dont age. i believe they said she was modled to be 16 or so....
and as for the loser pervert gets the girl...er...robot, they did that for happy ending purposes....CLAMP always has to have a happy ending

You know what Tyranns, I actually agree with you on this one. Although the show did have some rather funny moments (such as the "Chiibits OVA") the show really was an exercise in characters with pent up sexual frustration.

And now that you mention it, Chii did seem somewhat younger than I thought on second look, I thought she apeared roughly sixteen. What is it with anime and overly developed 12 year olds?

And for the rest, Chobits is a sweet anime. In my opinion.
Respect for the one who started it, but I disagree.

Tell me why I can't look at this anime as a stupid excersise in blatant sexsim. From where I'm standing that seems to be a perfect description.

and shes not 12...she doesnt have an age,nor does any other persocom...cause their robots,they dont age. i believe they said she was modled to be 16 or so....
Did you really just say robots don't have an age? They may not grow older but they have an age. If one was produced in 1989 it would now be 16. So it does have an age, it doesn't mature or grow but it has an age.

and shes not 12...she doesnt have an age,nor does any other persocom...cause their robots,they dont age. i believe they said she was modled to be 16 or so....

I don't care what they say the robot looks a lot younger than 16. she has almost no sexual development which is why I thought she was about 12 or 13.


and as for the loser pervert gets the girl...er...robot, they did that for happy ending purposes....CLAMP always has to have a happy ending

Clamp makes lots of yaoi too, what's your point? He didn't have to go with the ROBOT he could have gone with one of the living breathing women, but he didn't. Guess they just weren't submissive enough to get the man this time. I really think the reason the robot won out is because the otaku are to scared to deal with a girl with real feelings so a robot with sex organs seems perfect for them. The whole anime is just to give fodder to creepy fantasies about women that could never exist in real life.

Any more reasons to why this show doesn't suck that I can tear through?

There were male robots too (but none with "talking parts"...wonder why:rolleyes:)

Chobits is widely known as an ecchi anime...so it should have been expected that they'd be panty shots and silly prevert stuff. ;)

I personally, didn't mind Chobits, it wasn't SUPER great (story-wise) but it was interesting enough not to make me fall asleep. :cool:

I really think the reason the robot won out is because the otaku are to scared to deal with a girl with real feelings so a robot with sex organs seems perfect for them. ...As already mentioned, she can't have sex. She does not possess organs for it, and if it were attempted on her, she'd reboot and her memories and personality would be wiped clean. So, no, you can't really say he chose her for that. Freya even reminds him that he cannot be with her in that sense, making sure that he'd still want to be with her anyway. And he does, because he loves her. That's the point of the story.

I didn't care for the anime. I enjoyed the manga to an extent, but the anime had a totally different feel and fell rather short. The manga focused more on the whole "Do persacoms have emotions?" instead of the ecchi stuff. So, ignore the anime....check the manga out. There are still scenes that are a little perverted, but not nearly to the same extent.

Also, it could hardly be called a harem anime. Especially considering that the only other love interest he has besides Chii is the girl he works with. And she doesn't really love him, but wants someone else who had married a persacom in the past. That's it. No girls falling all over him. No long line of women eagerly seeking his affection. Just Chii. One "girl" does not a harem anime make....

Now, about Chii's "age"... She's meant to be, as stated, about 16ish in appearance. You say that because she's not very well endowed that she must be more 12ish. Well... Let's consider a few things, shall we: 1) She and her sister were made to be daughters of their creators...they weren't trying to make busty sexbots. 2) This takes place in Japan, where women are both short and not usually well endowed... 3) Not just Japanese women are restricted to being short and small no matter how old they get. You seem to have it in your head that if she's 16+ she's got to be busty, curvy, and all that jazz. Women come in all shapes and sizes. I never got the impression she was that "young"... Only mentally like a child, with her loss of memory.

I was talking about the otaku who lust after these charcters, not the anime itself on that one. You make some valid points, but really the show was just to stupid to actually enjoy. You say the manga is better and it very well could be, but to me that isn't hard. I can think of few animes i enjoy less than chobits. One and a half episodes was enough chobits to last a life time for me.

Masali
12-05-2005, 05:47 PM
Yeah, I gotta agree with Darth. Chobits is pretty damn lame. The plot is...woah...creepy, and just because he can't have sex doesn't mean he wasn't damn well thinking about having sex with her. Besides, he did eventually give into temptation, ever see the Chobits: XXX Director's cut? Thats some kinky stuff...

But all joking aside, the premise is OLD and im tired of it.
Boy/Girl develops feelings for a highly intellegent AI but their love can never be because it's a freaken ROBOT...
and onto the premise of not having sex...(content removed...sorry, but this is supposed to be a family-friendly board...keep it clean -Tod) I doubt you thought of that, for those of you who think this is a nice touching anime, more power to ya. For those of you who read between the lines and see this as smut...well, you're not to far of there, buddy.

I've seen most of this series. The thing about it I find the worst...

Watching it one minute and wondering when 'big bird' will make his appearance, then 5 minutes later feeling like I should grab my driver's licence in case someone asks to see my ID. That's a very disturbing mix... It's like one second they're playing patty-cake or something, and in the middle of the game they decide to strip down and play twister instead...(I know this didn't happen in any of the episodes I saw, don't take it as an actual referance please)

I did like the opening music though...

well it sertantly has alot of stuff little kiddy's arent supose to see but it has alot of meaning in the story( even tho alot of ppl say 'what the hell happens already!' or ' come on show us what happens!') but for ppl ho can see it find that chobits has alot of depth in the characters, like chii for egsample she may be a bit strange for a periscon but she's very innocent and sweet and just learning about the world, in my case chobits is quite a deep story to ppl around the world

I don't think that it sucks, I used to like it! ^^ Even though it may be perverted sometimes, many animes are. And that is what is making it funny XD Chii is just so cute. Well it's not my favourite anime, I think that it's pretty confusing sometimes, my opinion -it doesn't suck. But it's not really entertaining anymore, it's pretty boring.

yah thats true it is confusing sometimes, but even tho alot of ppl is confused, they still dont forget the fact that chobits is funny, cute and sweet even tho its a bit perverted but megami is quite right to be honest,(by the way it doesnt suck at all), when it was new alot of ppl people found it greate, and now that it isn't big news ppl arent finding it so greate anymore (and dont forget the fact that they search on the net to see the manga on line)

how are you going to base your opinion on one and a half episodesIt's easy I saw it and hated every minute of it. Anything that's so bad I can't watch 2 full episodes of it I consider awful ,and chobits fits the bill. I even managed to sit through 45 episodes of gundam wing and the movie, I don't know how a staved off boredom but I did it.

Man, I told you it suckedI knew it would suck, I just wanted to know how much it really did. And oh boy, it hurt it hurt real bad, Hobgoblins bad even.

12-07-2005, 08:06 AM
when you read the manga you'll find out that there is something deep about Chii's thoughts...like the book she was reading that was supposed to be about her. Oh and for teh person that said that clamp animes always have happy endings ur wrong...if you watch X the movie you'll see what i mean...and like i've said before Yes i must admit Chobits is pervish but still its quite funny.

Darth Tyranus
12-07-2005, 12:18 PM
Can someone tell me about the humor in chobits? Is it more than awkward situations and remarkably unfunny chi calling things the wrong name?

falling_angel_111
12-07-2005, 12:45 PM
Well, I think the perverted things aren't just because there funny. It's to get the point to the viewers that he's totally obsessed with sex. And yet he loves chi so he's willing to give that up for her. Do you see what i mean? If he was just another guy then it wouldn't mean as much. And you said earlier that you were suprised that this was made by woman. Well i think its more likely because almost every girl would like to meet a guy that isn't just about sex. So it would make sence to make a story about one guy that isn't. But thats just my opinion...





and onto the premise of not having sex...(content removed...sorry, but this is supposed to be a family-friendly board...keep it clean -Tod) I doubt you thought of that, for those of you who think this is a nice touching anime, more power to ya. For those of you who read between the lines and see this as smut...well, you're not to far of there, buddy.

I think I see what you mean, and I'm pretty sure the creators weren't thinking that. It's suppose to be a love story with a happy ending, what do you expect?

Darth Tyranus
12-07-2005, 02:23 PM

And needless to say I disagree with all of it. It's very easy to see through the paper thin "love beats sex" mask you claim the show wears. To me it's very clear the guy is a sex starved moron, and it's just a stupid show.

This makes no sence to me at all. We're not talking about a reality show with people claiming to be something their not. We're talking about an anime with made up characters, that dont have two different sides. What you see is what you get. Anything else is just taking that character and giving it a personality you made up. But again thats just my opinion.

I had just figured from hearing the premise of the show it would be a rainbow painted ghost in the shell, regarding the idea can machines think and feel. He's male. Most males daydream about porn, especially when they cannot get a girl--and he tries really, really hard not to touch Chii in any way at all. Chii does all the "molesting" and Chii is also not formed off of a 12-year old girl. She's based off of a Japanese 16-year-old girl and need I remind everyone that at age 13 you are legal in Japan.


No such luck, it quickly degenerated in to a boring harem anime. For some reason girls just fall all over this moron. I guess it's so the otaku can keep their dream of being a huge loser who can't get in to college is still able to get a hot girlfriend who beckons to your every whim, yeah keep that pipe dream alive guys. But what sets this show part from other stupid harem animes is that he doesn't pick a living girl no he picks a damn robot. A 12 year old child robot I might add. No girls fall all over him. He daydreams about it...but in reality Yumi has a guy she's in love with and is not interested in Hideki, Hibiya-san is far too old for him and is a widow, at one point was happily married and is very obviously not interested in finding another man. And finally, the teacher is into Hideki's best bud Shinbo-not Hideki. That's made plain and obvious too. Any other girl that was "all over him" was a persocom. And initially- it's again Chii who picks him, he doesn't pick her at first.


My eyes nearly rolled in to the back of my head when I saw that the droids on switch was in her cooter. Why not just call it a sex droid instead of a persacon? I guess otaku just love wanking off to emotionless physically undeveloped girls like chi or rei from evangleion. I could go on for hours about how much I hate this show, but I think I have said enough. It's hard to think this show was written by women. Since it has to be the most sexist piece of garbage I have ever seen. I couldn't even make it though 2 episodes of this crap, I just read what happens. And the plot is just as asinine as I figured it would be. So in summation I hate chobits, and you should too.

The on/off switch is in that spot for a reason. That's the ONLY persocom in all of Japan with her on/off switch there. The reason being that if she found her "someone just for her" he could say he loved her and Mean it, not say it just because he wanted her body-because if he loved her just for her body he'd turn her off completely and have everything she ever knew erased. So Hideki had to fall in love with her for her personality and agree never to ingage in intercourse with her just to keep her around.

Maybe you should watch or read the story in full before you go making all these wildly unfounded assumptions. Just a little suggestion.

if you dont like it then fine, im not trying to persuade you to actually like it...and im not insulting your opinion or likes/dislikes in any way shape or form.
so please stop saying the show is this and the show is that, because their are people who are getting offended and defensive about the anime....and thatll just lead to flame wars.....not good

I have heard how awful and sexist this show is from many reliable sources. But I wanted to find out just how terrible it was for myself. As it turns out the show is worse than anything I could have imagined. Yes it was worse than seven evangleion shows, yes you read that right seven of them.

Chobits has a lot of problems the fist one I noticed was how horrible the main character of the show is. All he does is day dream about porn and molest a robot girl who seems to be about 12. I had just figured from hearing the premise of the show it would be a rainbow painted ghost in the shell, regarding the idea can machines think and feel.

No such luck, it quickly degenerated in to a boring harem anime. For some reason girls just fall all over this moron. I guess it's so the otaku can keep their dream of being a huge loser who can't get in to college is still able to get a hot girlfriend who beckons to your every whim, yeah keep that pipe dream alive guys. But what sets this show part from other stupid harem animes is that he doesn't pick a living girl no he picks a damn robot. A 12 year old child robot I might add.

My eyes nearly rolled in to the back of my head when I saw that the droids on switch was in her cooter. Why not just cal it a sex droid instead of a persacon? I guess otaku just love wanking off to emotionless physically undeveloped girls like chi or rei from evangleion. I could go on for hours about how much I hate this show, but I think I have said enough. It's hard to think this show was written by women. Since it has to be the most sexist piece of garbage I have ever seen. I couldn't even make it though 2 episodes of this crap, I just read what happens. And the plot is just as asinine as I figured it would be. So in summation I hate chobits, and you should too.


waah, i like that sho, but it's yur opinion and i'm not hating. it's kinda sad, but good insite. of couse i object, but c what u could mean. umm.....that is all...

I'm sorry but I love Chobits and it makes me laugh, I mean so what if it is a robot it is just cute to watch them fall in love. Very opinionated I must add, but oh well it's your opinion so I can't argue with you on that. I'm just saying that I like it and that's just my opinion! :P lol ~out~

You don't like it, then don't watch it. Many people love the anime, so do I. If you have your own opinion about the anime - fine, but you didn't have to start own topic like this one.
"Chobits" is about love, not about sex. Hideki isn't pervert only he is a normal, horny 18 years old boy who does like girls (like almost every boy at his age). I really like the story and the humor... but like I said earlier... everybody has own opinion.

starting with your post the thread hasn't been touched for over a year.


I bet many opinions about the show have changed drastically now.
like many said though if you dislike how the plot basic is,
don't watch or bother with it,
it was not made to charm sexist or sexuality for that matter
but a simple love story.

Wow your totally worng. And your using the term sexist wrong...that's has nothing to do with Chobits, go look in a dictionary for once goodness. And this anime isn't actually bad I mean when you think about it alot of guys act like Hideki does so it isn't suprising to ppl. And..Chi isn't 12 you know she just looks young. And you don't understand the name CHOBITS do yo Chi is able of feeling and is more than just i robot. I suggest yo actually take the time to read the mang or actually watch the whole thing because you have a huge misunderstanding of this whole thing.

Hmm..If i'd have to rate it 1-5, i'd give it a 3! Why? Well, it's quite entertaining and fun to watch not to mention the perv*** stuffs plus it has a good romance side. Other than that just plain okay, so it's doesnt suck for me though i'd like other comedy/romance anime/manga more than Chobits.

It's interesting at some point, but I noticed more negative themes in it. It's more of an older teen anime. I still wonder why CLAMP made it. All their manga and anime are popular and loved by all, but not this. Sorry, Chobits fans.

CHOBITS IS AWSOME!!!I LOVE CHOBITS!It has a good story line and some romance,plus it is funny as crap!I read the manga and I saw the shows!Would you like me to explain the story!

Chobits is the story of an 18 year old boy named Motosuwa Hideki who grew up on a farm and wanted to go to college. But unfortunately, he was rejected, and so Hideki decides to go to a prep school so that he can study hard and get into college.
Then one night, as Hideki is walking home, he finds a Persocom (which is basically an android) in a dumpster. But, when he turns her on, all she can say is "chi". And thus begins the funny story of Chii and Hideki

Anyhow,it's just my oppinion on chobits.....>____>;;

07-24-2006, 10:29 AM
cause there were more intersthing anime and it was a old anime...v.V....properly that's why thier graphic's aren't really as good as the newer ones...
Um... It was made in 2002. It was colored and animated on a computer, just like most of the new stuff is now. I really fail to see how it's any worse in animation quality compared to most things made recently. It's a TV series, and most anime TV shows are poorer quality than say a movie or OVA series. Even so, it's just as good as everything else out now as far as the animation goes.

Personally I really didn't mind the series of anime, "Chobits". Infact, I really enjoyed it. I haven't read the manga, however I would like to when I get the chance. I like the romance, comedy, style anime's and manga's, and Chobits just happens to fit that very category. The show has its goods, and bads, I know. However, it wasn't designed for younger viewer's to watch it. It isn't all that disturbing either if you think logically about it. It isn't like much rude content was shown, I know that yes, some things were shown, and should not have been, for some viewer's could become highly offended by it. However those viewer's did not have to watch it in the first place. So there for, it wouldn't be the anime's fault, and, or the producer's fault for that matter, it would be the viewer's fault.

08-10-2006, 05:05 PM
Well-it's kind of bad in the fact that the end of it almost robs Hideki of any truly intemate contact he could have with Chii...Which sucks for him royally, but I still thought it was alright. Jima and Dita were the most interesting characters.

08-10-2006, 05:07 PM

Okay, you obviously looked around on this and found every possible bad thing about it. There is more to the series then that itself. Of course. But seriously now, there are worse out there.



I found the series to be quite nice, I thought Hideki and his fantacies were funny, though not the best. But still. You shouldn't be so anal on this subject, I mean, it's just anime after all. Plently of other things to do besides obsevering the pros and cons of a Japanese Animation.



Which reminds me, if you think Chobits is oh so bad. Have you ever read Dears. o_o It's just as bad and still good.

08-10-2006, 06:24 PM
What I don't get is why some people take the things they see in anime and manga so seriously. If there's a show or book you don't like, so be it. You are not forced to watch or read anything. You are entitled to your opinion, but it's genereally thought to be rude to speak it when not asked.

Also if one thinks that a show or book is bad enough that it could negatively affect children and how they think about real world situations, that's fine I understand your worries. But in the end it should not be a problem since genereally there's someone who is responsible for children, the parents.

Oh, and I thought Chobits was a wonderful little show. Very entertaining.

@Darth Tyranus: sorry darth tyranus but I'm sticking up for Chobits fans here. I think your views on Chobits is too subjective, I'm not having a go at you. I'll just try and put out a fair defence for chobits.

Anime: firstly,the anime has some very obvious flaws, even to fans of the manga series. Whereas the manga explored in depth the mythology or 'fiction' of persocons and the roles of humans and robots, the anime in general is just a showcase of chii doing cute things. there is little development of Chii's character and we rarely see in detail the dilema Hideki faces with Chii, a dilema that is meant to represent everyones hopes and fears about humans living with robots. though it does exist within the anime, it never seems to want to carry it on, and it should because it's interesting.
However, the relationship between Hideki and Chii still remains intact and we believe in Hideki's problems brought about by his persocon (even if it is linear). Though the anime has lost a lot of the chobits 'fiction' it manages to capture Chobits in a different, more up-beat light than that of the manga. even if it's pacing is a little slow, the relationships we see in the seperate story arcs are gripping. the reset button down below that chii has basically cannotes a strong message. that you should only give yourself to the one person you love. The anime does struggle to put fan-service parts like this into a relevant context at times. And Hideki is just a stereotypical Otaku steriotype, ( a male with needs lol). but he always does right by chii and its harmless, this show is not sexist in my opinion. the persocons may seem like servents to man at the beggining. but you learn as you go through that persocons are individuals and not machines, a message imprinted by all the main and supporting characters. (sorry for rough and rushed opinion)

I think you have not seen or read the manga all the way through.


Manga: as for the manga...its basically the animated series, but is deeper and balances the relationship of robots and humans, and chii and Hideki more clearly.


Sorry if you dont agree
If you don't agree, thats fine, this is a forum after all and I'm sure it's all valid stuff - the good and the bad. but I felt I had to try and defend Chobits fans as I thought the manga was very good and the anime series to be alright.

I never saw it as "sucky". Actually, I read it and everytime I did I would go out and buy more to the series. That does not happen all that much with me. Especially because I'm poor but who cares. I loved it with passion and found it very interesting. The art is lovely and of course, not all are perfect. Some are bound to hate it. I'm just not one of those.

anime4fun
09-12-2006, 03:26 PM
I know what some people mean about the age of Chii, she is 15 and Hideki is 18. however we are reassured in the manga/anime that Hideki will always do the right thing, his intentions are always good towards chii, and all the other supporting characters who are involved with persocons...apart from from one guy...but he's soon brought to justice XD.

though I am worried about one thing, Hideki will grow up...yet you'd assume chii would stay the same age, now I can't really defend it when hes like 60 and shes still 15 lol.

Kagome
09-12-2006, 04:11 PM
O-o Chii doesn't have an age in that way...She's a machine. Her age depends on how old her processer is; her OS system is; her entire computerized unit is. So she does age. Technically I think Chii was created actually before Hideki was out of grammar school too, so she's a little older then 15 years in either way. Though I see what your saying...A better way to say it is that she's forever young looking.

ďI have heard how awful and sexist this show is from many reliable sources. But I wanted to find out just how terrible it was for me. As it turns out the show is worse than anything I could have imagined. Yes it was worse than seven evangleion shows, yes you read that right seven of them.

I guess it's so the otaku can keep their dream of being a huge loser who can't get in to college is still able to get a hot girlfriend who beckons to your every whim, yeah keep those pipe dream alive guys. But what sets this show part from other stupid harem anime's is that he doesn't pick a living girl no he picks a damn robot. A 12 year old child robot I might add.

My eyes nearly rolled in to the back of my head when I saw that the droids on switch was in her cooter. Why not just cal it a sex droid instead of a persacon? I guess otaku just love wanking off to emotionless physically undeveloped girls like chi or rei from evangleion. I could go on for hours about how much I hate this show, but I think I have said enough. It's hard to think this show was written by women. Since it has to be the most sexist piece of garbage I have ever seen. I couldn't even make it though 2 episodes of this crap, I just read what happens. And the plot is just as asinine as I figured it would be. So in summation I hate chobits, and you should too.Ē


Hmmm, nope, I think what you have is an idealist view of this anime without looking into the significance behind each of the occurrences that happen either to Chii(Elda) or Hideki, or to any other being in the anime.

First point to be made is her age. Like it has been stated before, she has no technical age, so even if she looks young (I don't often see 12 year olds looking like that mind you) she still has no age.

Second point would be the sexism in the whole anime. Now, the first thing I thought you meant was that this anime was portraying women as only objects, like wise are the perscoms. This initial thought was shooed away because there are male perscoms in the anime series. Then I figured it may be due to the fact that they were able to be programmed and will do anything for their programmer. Again, this wasn't too substantial because of the fact that a person could program their perscom from a Swedish masseuse (sp?), to a best friend, to a gaming partner, even down to having those miniature perscoms that do not actually interact with their owners.

Now... what else... Oh, Hideki being a horrible main character! Now, had you watched the anime, you would learn his characteristics change throughout the anime. Initially his mindset was based very firmly on porn, but as he develops, you learn that he falls in love with Chii, and as such, he begins to mature. His outward attraction towards women, his innocence in the face thereof, and the fact that he DOES not allow this to interfere with what he needs to get done is some of the most redeeming factors of this character. So, not only do we have a humorous and some-what kinky character to initialize the anime, we have him develop into a decent man, one who learns to understand a woman and what happiness is and learns what it is he loves. Infatuation is not love, and his initial attraction to pornography was an infatuation.

Now, more on the general construction on the anime... "[Chobits] it quickly degenerated in to a boring harem anime. For some reason girls just fall all over this moron. I guess it's so the otaku can keep their dream of being a huge loser who can't get in to college is still able to get a hot girlfriend who beckons to your every whim..." Well, what do we have here? Now, how many girls does Hideki go out with in the anime, and I don't mean in a friendly little date idea, we are talking going into a romance with that character. Only one, Chii, in the very end. Now, look at why the Manager of "Our Pleasure" daughter is attracted to Hideki. She was looking for someone to fill the gap in her being. Now, letís see here, what did Hideki do with her? Nothing. Wait, no, he did! Because of the maturing process of his character, he was able to have her reunite with the man she really loved. Then we have his amazing teacher who was hitting on him! Again did anything happen? no. Was it not Hideki who got Shinbo and her together with his "words of wisdom"? Through out this anime, we see sexual desire, but in equal helpings do we get sexual restraint. And though he developed lust for some of the characters, he did not act upon it and in the end, it was his thinking that helped everyone into their rightful states of mind.

Considering you have been dissing on Hideki for his infatuation with the female body, I think you are in no position to be talking about the perscoms starting switch. Now, lets look at the whole story as a full. Who is the only person Chii lets touch there? The one she loves. Why did her father put it there? To protect his daughter. What is the symbolism? "Chastity until you find the one you love. The one for you and only you". If anything, I would want my child to watch this anime; I would want them to understand what the symbolism implies.

Finally, I almost forgot a very important point you attempted to make. Oh, he chooses a robot over a real girl... let alone it being a 12 year old robot. Well, we already know it is not in fact 12 years old, so I won't restate that. Now, why does he choose the robot chick... hmmm...? I know! Letís take a look at symbolism again! The anime was not based on who one will choose it is for what reason. We learn through near the end that love is why you choose a being to love, and to paraphrase Shinbo "... I realized I would not have been any less angry had it been a real woman that her husband cheated on her with." Though I wish I took more dedicated notes of things I could paraphrase for this situation, I haven't so it will be a bit weak here. What is being said is that love, in any form, is primarily not to be tampered with, and that love, is not something bound by what a person is or was. Had you watched the last episode, Hideki's ability to learn from everything he endured, was what brought Chii back to him. Through this, Chii gave the gift of sentience to all persocoms. She gave them the ability to feel as she could feel. How do I come to this conclusion? Well, more with the symbolism. After the final flash of light, you see several persocoms eyes. From their normal blank states, they become defined, with character and much like humans. Those who like Jima and Dita will have noticed this the most predominantly.

To finish off how I feel, I will say that you are a very insensitive person who was unable to appreciate the value of this anime. Had you actually took the time to understand and realize what was being shown, not directly, but through symbolism, then you might have been able to appreciate this beautiful show. I give Chobits a full 10/10 and suggest to all that they should watch it.

Final note; because i realize that Darth tyranuss isn't coming here anymore, and because no one made a better argument than his (no matter how weak it still is) on the whole "chobits is bad" idea, Just apply this to everyone who has the same thoughts or similar thoughts as Darth

@Savarast: my first post i did here agrees with you, I think you explained it well, however I think it's a bit too subjective...or attacking on the creator of the thread.
not that theres anything wrong with your post, but you seemed a bit too involved with the subject matter. but I guess you were making your point clear, just comes off a bit aggressive. plus use some terminology when discussing, some may say it's showing off but it really isn't, its there for a reason to express something in a word or two instead of a sentance. but your post made for a interesting read.

@Higurashi Kagome: arhh sorry, I meant that she would have the relative age of about 15 in human years, this is the estimate that I have read at lots of resourses, but its nothing definate, and yes what you said is right, so I agree there ^_^

anyway, like my posts here have stated, I enjoyed Chobits the manga a lot and the anime, was ok. I'm suprised love hina is not winning by a mile stone though because everyone I talk to loves it...its good but not a personal fave of mine.

It was only as subjective asthe argument I was defending against. I took each poitn he made and took in on my analysis of the anime. My last paragraph was overly subjective, but I wasn't rude about what I said, and to paraphrase darth "well, if the shoe fits".

Now, from you I would like an explination as to how I could use terminology http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=terminology To make my work less lengthy. I know I am always a wordy person, but thats how I am, considering I have very large writing quotas, it's a good thing for me.

I agree, Love Hina was very good as well, but I found Chobits has alot my indepth meaning. I still loved both of them.

Considering you have been dissing on Hideki for his infatuation with the female body, I think you are in no position to be talking about the perscoms starting switch. Now, lets look at the whole story as a full. Who is the only person Chii lets touch there? The one she loves. Why did her father put it there? To protect his daughter. What is the symbolism? "Chastity until you find the one you love. The one for you and only you". If anything, I would want my child to watch this anime; I would want them to understand what the symbolism implies.

Finally, I almost forgot a very important point you attempted to make. Oh, he chooses a robot over a real girl... let alone it being a 12 year old robot. Well, we already know it is not in fact 12 years old, so I won't restate that. Now, why does he choose the robot chick... hmmm...? I know! Letís take a look at symbolism again! The anime was not based on who one will choose it is for what reason. We learn through near the end that love is why you choose a being to love, and to paraphrase Shinbo "... I realized I would not have been any less angry had it been a real woman that her husband cheated on her with." Though I wish I took more dedicated notes of things I could paraphrase for this situation, I haven't so it will be a bit weak here. What is being said is that love, in any form, is primarily not to be tampered with, and that love, is not something bound by what a person is or was. Had you watched the last episode, Hideki's ability to learn from everything he endured, was what brought Chii back to him. Through this, Chii gave the gift of sentience to all persocoms. She gave them the ability to feel as she could feel. How do I come to this conclusion? Well, more with the symbolism. After the final flash of light, you see several persocoms eyes. From their normal blank states, they become defined, with character and much like humans. Those who like Jima and Dita will have noticed this the most predominantly.

To finish off how I feel, I will say that you are a very insensitive person who was unable to appreciate the value of this anime. Had you actually took the time to understand and realize what was being shown, not directly, but through symbolism, then you might have been able to appreciate this beautiful show. I give Chobits a full 10/10 and suggest to all that they should watch it.

Final note; because i realize that Darth tyranuss isn't coming here anymore, and because no one made a better argument than his (no matter how weak it still is) on the whole "chobits is bad" idea, Just apply this to everyone who has the same thoughts or similar thoughts as Darth

Nice novel lol ^^



i like the serries by the way and we dont have to agree with you that it sucks (im talking to the guy who posted first)

@Goygo and kakashi are god: exactly lol, thats pretty much covers it, I think why me and savarast are countering is because his argument...well, it doesn't hold up.


@Savarast: I was not having a go at your post, though it was loooong, I thought you got your point across well. when I say terminology I mean to term your text where appropriate more often to shorten what would otherwise take up a sentance or two. of course sometimes you just wan't to lazy talk on forums like I do all the time. As for the personal thing, nothing wrong with getting invloved in the subject you're on about, but if you don't get the balance right with being objective then it's hard to gage the tone of the post, seems less credible. but its a good post, and these are all just litte things, just thought it was quite aggressive, then again so was the creator of the thread.

each to there own eh, but If you're going to make a statement like the creator of this thread has done, then show some knowledge towards the chosen subject otherwise it comes across as 'oh I don't know much about it, but its rubbish'. if you make a good argument at why you don't like chobits e.g. challenging the themes of the anime/manga then cool (this is a forum, go for it), or if you simply say, 'i understand it, but not my thing' then also cool...otherwise be prepared to get countered, in this case by me and Savarast . last time I checked I live in a democracy, so say what you want, but if you're going to do what the creator of this thread has done, then do it well. ^_^

I had a friend who couldn't even get through the first episode of it v_v; But I'm still thinking of checking it out because some people seem to like it and some people don't it's probably an opinion thing...?

i've been watching the series in college aswell as the rest of my class on youtube, and we all think it's really funny and a great anime. alot of people from my class dont even like anime but still loved this show.

there are 7 girls in the class too, they all loved it. so they clearly didnt have a problem with it ^^

the simple fact is, it's both a comedy and a cartoon. if you take it seriously, then you should seek help right this instant ^^

the only thing you should take seriously in it is the love side. not the perverted parts in there for the sake of being funny ^_^

it's a sweet, funny anime and i think will be remembered as one of the greatest of all time.

woah..lol...this thread is still going strong i see..battle on chobits loevrs! What was the original discrimination of this anime>? something about how perverted it is and how old chii looks? Has no one noticed that in many animes perversion seems to be the funniest part? (saying this to the opposing side..of course) saying this it seems that this is somewhat a tradition to say the least. Also i don't think chi is 12...i read a review/profile on chobits a while back before i actually saw the anime itself and it said that she was 16 ...thats only 3 years younger than hideki, whats so bad about that? And not to mention she's not exactly human so would it matter?(ok mayb it matters a bit) BUT still its anime! i don't see anyone opposing how magical girl animes are stupid b/c the defy the law of physics and such!(well if u don't like them thats ur own problem) But i for one will say again: I love chobits to death (yes i do) and nothing will change that. (And i currently and forever will be a loyal fangirl) ^_^

thats a good point, just look at azumanga daioh. by mixing a perverted story line with inocent characters such as chii and sumomo the creators have you laughing for ages, the best part in all of chobits has to be when sumomo starts danceing and singing 'porno sites porno sites'!

and i dont think we hve to agree that chobits sucks just because you say soAgreed! Chobits is one of my favorite anime/manga, But I respect your opinion, so if you don't like it that's your decision. Still, you shouldn't be telling other people to hate it just because you do. That sounds rather opinionated to me.
