Chii and Hideki.
Next on the review front it Chobits! Chobits is a science fiction romantic comedy created by Clamp, which also made Cardcaptor Sakura, another major title they made. Of course this is based on a manga of the same name.
Chobits is a story about Hideki Motosuwa
. Hideki is a ronin
trying to get into college. Besides being a ronin, he wishes to have a persocom
, an android used as a personal computer. One day on his way home he finds a persocom in the trash. Hideki then moves it to his room and turn her one with the switch being between her legs. When she wakes up she sees Hideki and adores him. Upon waking up all she can say is "chii" thus making Hideki naming her Chii. Hideki assumes there is something wrong with Chii because that's all she can say. The next day Hideki's neighbor Shinbo Hiromu
tries to analyze her with is mobile persocom Sumomo
. During the analysis Sumomo ends up crashing and they find out that Chii is custom made. After they have failed Shinbo introduces Minoru Kokubunji
, a twelve year old genius who specializes in custom persocoms. Minoru tries to analyze Chii with his persocoms. The first attempt fails and they try again with Yuzuki
, a custom made persocom made by Minoru. Yuzuki tries to analyze Chii, but she fails as well. After all these failed attempts Minoru starts to suspect that Chii might be a legendary persocom called "Chobits", but it's just a speculation for now.
A big part of the show is Hideki teaching Chii many things. One of the first things he teaches her is his name. At first when Chii learned his name, she called everything "hideki" from his ceiling lamp to his porn. Another major part of the show is trying to figure out Chi's past.
That's a brief summary of how the show starts out. During the course of the show we do find out about Chii and about her past. Now it's time for my thoughts.
It was a fun and enjoyable show. There were tons of sexual jokes, which were good. Tons of jokes about okazu which has to meanings. One is a side dish that goes with rice and something used for masturbation like porn. There are also so pokes towards Hideki for being a virgin. There are other goofy moments as well.
If you are looking for a romantic comedy with science fiction elements, give this one a shot.
My Score - 4.5/5
