Chi gets rescued, but not before she drops a bomb: no one but "that person just for me" is allowed inside me (where her on/off switch is conveniently located). A robot who wants to remain a virgin until marriage? Apparently Chi's quest, as per Hideki's landlady's husband (who is no longer with us but somehow involved in this), is to give all persocoms the ability to be happy. I'm unsure about her "dark half" and how this is all going to be resolved, even if Chi and Hideki end up together.

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.

I don't know if I should feel bad for Yumi. I'm not a big fan of her hair.
Yay! They found Chi, and she is unharmed. Though, she did go into that state where every personacom (I think that is how it is spelled) went into a trance. I do not know how or why yet, but it definitely makes me more interested in what is going to happen.
Love the series! Chi is adorable!
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 ^^
I'd watched and liked the anime version when I was still a kid.

For now, I got no plans for buying a copy.

3.5? I'm not sure with this series. Chi is so 'young', that it feels wrong to me that it's about her Someone Just For Her..
Gorgo Mage
a little repetitive and boring when chi repeats herself, but in all honesty.... its freakin adorable.
Ridiculous at times, pervy at others, and definitely a bit sappy... Overall a very fun series!
yay Chi is back. what is yumi hiding, can't wait to find out.

My first attempt at reading manga in 2007. Read via BookCrossing.
Pieces are falling into place. Only 3 more volumes to go.
