Chi has developed quite a bit since Hideki found her lying in the garbage one fateful morning. She's learned to speak, work in a pastry shop, go shopping...and, so it would seem, to love. After much soul searching (if a persocom could even be considered to have a soul) Chi comes to the realization that her feelings towards Hideki, her "someone just fer her," are nothing sh...more

Though I think this manga was sometimes cute, it was also sometimes really strange. It was a little too "let's all love each other and live in harmony" for me. Not that I don't think that's a good thing. It's just that this series played it up way too much. I mean, the bulk of the plot had to do with whether or not persocoms deserve to be happy. There was a lot of discussion about whether their feelings were real since they were only programmed that to feel the things they did. It was an interes...more
Unless you count web-based manga, this is actually the first manga I've read. It was okay, just like my star-rating reports. I liked the art style, that was definitely a draw, and I found most of the subplots largely enjoyable and interesting.

I liked the majority of the supporting characters, especially Plum who has a personality that I'm sure I would find annoying in real life but as a tiny computer was simply adorable. I couldn't help but grin at her enthusiasm for everything.

I found the mai...more

Checked this out at the library because I'd heard it mentioned enough that I was curious. It was interesting and not at all the kiddy stuff that I'd gotten the impression it was from how people had talked about the anime version.

I did have a little trouble following the conversation flow, which is occasionally a problem with manga translated from a culture that goes right to left. It wasn't much of a hinderence with Chobits, though. I kept reading and found myself engrossed.

I continue to feel torn about this series.

On one hand, in many cases the overall story is much sweeter than it has any right to be, in particular with the side characters and their love lives. There's a strong message about being loved and valued for who your really are, and that's admirable. Also, this is some of the best of CLAMP's art.

On the other hand, though, the core relationship in this story has a power imbalance that's never really dealt with. Plus, without getting too spoilery, there'...more
I really quite enjoy Chobits. As far as CLAMP manga goes, a lot of fans dislike it, saying that it runs counter to other CLAMP works. I enjoy the parts about Chobits that involve sacrifice, the problem of requited vs. unrequited love, the power of love itself, the nature of love (is it something programmed, or is it something inherent in sentient beings - when does "love" stop and become "programming" instead?). It's all really interesting and heartbreaking, too.

Me he reído mucho durante su lectura y el final del manga me ha ayudado a aclarar cosas que en el anime no terminaban de quedar claras. Sin duda muy recomendable para pasar un rato estupendo.

Skipped volume 7 because I did not find it in a recycle bin but volume 8 wraps things up very nicely, indeed. The resolution that all the various plot lines have been building towards is big, emotional and meaningful. Our hero makes a decision that not only saves the world (in a way) but also proves what we've seen throughout the series, that he is a really nice guy. is a good story with a fair amount to think about for the perceptive reader. The real world parallels are plentiful and it makes...more
Loved this series, read it all in one night. I think CLAMP has really captured humans into this book. With the new and advanced technology you will see that more and more people give MORE of their time to the "new technology." Basically everyday we take time from our human interactions and use it with technology, but we still don't value the existing technology; because as soon as a newer and better version comes out, we lose interest in the old one, or simply just forget it. If you sit down and...more
Read this series back to back when I was in high school and remember loving it. Don't know how that would translate to now.
That was absolutely adorable. I love the mutually moral of loving someone completely for who they are not what they can do. It really is beautiful. It makes me wonder if one day we will live in a society where machines look and act like people and will begin to share the emotions of humans. I guess it may just be wishful thinking, but it is a neat idea to think about.

Welp. Hideki will die a virgin. That sucks for him. But hey, true love in his arms... -___-
Disappointingly short. As I handed over my £6.99 I felt slightly cheated. "Hang on," I said to myself, "Hang on. Isn't this exactly the same price as all those other volumes that were at least twice the size?"

Well, cost griping aside, it's a good conclusion. This was the first manga I ever read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I wish there was a little more on Dita and Zima, I loved them.

(And I'm not being funny, Hideki, but there are OTHER ways of, you know, ENJOYING Chi than where that little swit...more
you know, leave it to clamp to dirty things up. not that these naughty topics didn't come up before, but it felt like it took up a fourth of the book.
anyway- since i'm a child of the 20th/21st century, i believe that all fairy tales should have happy endings, and this one does. dita and zima are great too, not that i didn't see their ending coming. plus, every time i see "zima", i think the beverage, which makes me chuckle a bit. it's just happiness all around.
Love the series! Chi is adorable!
You know, the end disappointed me. It seemed anti-climatic. Huge build up through out the series, resulting in an ok finale. The big questions were largely ignored, and we were left with an ending that seems rushed and incomplete. The happiness of the characters seem doomed to fail once the fairy tale ends.

Still, worth reading for any anime fan.
I absolutely adore this manga by CLAMP. They manage to take some extremely pertinent and complex questions about the nature of love and the individuality of robots, and combine them with one of the most adorable romances ever!

Its about cute persocoms name Chi ... that falling in love with Hideki, the guy who take her from garbage and teaching her about life.

Originaly review by AnnChan ^^
Kylie カイリー Yay Apocalypse
Aww what a great ending! I really love those two Government persocom pair!! They're so cute together! And Zima is such a great guy for her!
I accidentally read this volume before volume 7. It was a good ending to the series. There was no other way for it to end, really.
"If we can all find that special person... then the world will be a most joyous place."

Loved this series. So sad it's over.
I'd watched and liked the anime version when I was still a kid.

For now, I got no plans for buying a copy.
I cried towards the end. That's how sucked in I was, like I was experiencing love and learning with them.
Patricia BookExhibitionism
The "mystery" wasn't big enough and I wish they could just have had sex (even if fade out-sex) but well. ;D
This series was short but endearing. I really liked the characters althought he ending was a bit odd.
Lady Knight
I really enjoyed the series overall, but I really expected the ending to be better. More...epic.

I was so attatched to this book and this series. I recommend all anime/manga fans to read this!
