    Default Quick Question on Chobits!

    786 Okay, so it's my current practice to watch funny, not-too-ecchi animes with no sad stuff therein, and I started watching Chobits yesterday. I find it hilarious and Chi is adorable! I just watched episode five and I need advice. Keeping in mind that I'm a romantic and am avoiding sad stuff atm: if I keep watching this, will I wish I hadn't?
    Thanks

    Not at all Chobits is the pinnacle of romance. Now it ins't necessarily sad, but there are a lot of intense moments. To really capture the series beauty I would recommend that you read the manga.

    786 Thank you, that's reassuring! I just saw some things that might be construed as foreshadowing an unfavorable end, and a quick glance online revealed a lot of difference of opinion on whether the end was happy or heartbreaking. I didn't look into their respective reasons, because well-calibrated spoiler-avoiding eyeball; I decided the best way to figure out whether to continue watching without getting a fat spoiler for my pains was for me to ask here.
    I would like to read the manga someday; for now I'm illiterate in Japanese (I'm working on it) so it's some distance in the future...
    Thanks again, because I really am thoroughly enjoying this series.

    Watch all of Chobits, you will love it to the end, I always thought of Chobits as one of the best anime series, and yes, Chi and MKotoko are very entertaining! The manga series was created by CLAMP, who also created Card Capture Sakura and Magical Knight Rayearth.

    I watched the first six episodes or so and could go no further. Though the underwear episode was pretty good.

    What's with the 789 anyway?

    786 It's similar to how Thelemites use 93, or how Discordians use 23.

    There really isn't any reason to learn japanese to read manga. As there are multiple sites that host english translations. Plus your more likely to find it translated than you are to find the actual RAWs of the series.

    Not to mention it was licensed by Tokyo Pop YEARS ago!! It was the first manga series that I owned completely.

    Those of us who know what 4kids and other translators do, disagree with that statement a lot.
    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    I see. Allow to to respond to that with an appropriate rebuttal.




    I was merely saying that you can't always TRUST someone else to translate correctly. Hell even parts of the Bible are seriously mistranslated.


    Or do you believe the prince of Saiyans drinks fruit juice and says "Holy Smokes"?

    786 Wow, this thread got fun...
    For me, if it's worth me dropping the chinks and reading it at all, it's worth reading in Japanese since a) I'm learning it anyway, b) fixed income c) limited time on this planet, and d) I've seen enough translator monkeyshines in my life to be inherently suspicious of translations.
    I finished the anime to-day; I'm glad I watched it and was not ripped off. Thanks to everypony for their input!

    Indeed. One of the many reasons I gave up Christianity for better gods. I do not like it when people lie about things involving my immortal soul.

    [QUOTE=PictureGuy;2883324]Thanks. That explains --- nothing.

    786 Oh? Sorry I apparently screwed up the quote function, I have no clew how that happened or how to fix it.
    This was originally intended as a pm, but somepony has disabled pms and I am therefore unable to do this privately. My somewhat cryptic reply was intended to give the curious enough pointers to find the answer without derailing the thread, as I believe that forums generally operate best with a minimum of religious or political discussion unless those forums are specifically devoted to those topics. So my apologies in advance; anypony reading this please keep in mind that I initially had no intention of making these observations publicly.
    In some alphabets (e.g. Greek, Hebrew, Arabic) there is what is known as an alphanumeric system, whereby each letter is assigned a number value. So for example in Greek alpha is 1, beta is 2, xi is 60, chi is 600, etc. The Greek word "Thelema" (Will) has a numerical value of 93, so Thelemites--members of the OTO and others who subscribe to the teachings of Aleister Crowley regarding the True Will--use that number to begin and/or end correspondence, etc. It functions as an affirmation of values, a call-sign between fellow travelers, and a gem before the curious.
    I happen to be a member of the Naqshbandi sufi order. In Arabic, 786 is the numerical value of Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Rahim, "In the Name of God, The Compassionate, The Merciful," which is used to begin--pretty much everything. Among Naqshbandis it is used extensively. Many Muslims, especially in South Asia, use the alphanumeric value to express this.
    Anyway, that's it in a somewhat large nutshell.

    This is one of the best anime series I have seen, so anybody who started watching it should continue to do so. You could also check out the Chobits manga done by CLAMP, they also created Cardcaptor Sakura.
