What do you mean "what exactly IS chii"? She's a Chobit - a super computer, really (or super computerx100 lol). As for the outfits, ask CLAMP, they really like the colorful and varied outfits. During the series, though, she gets most of her clothes from Hideki's landlady, Ms. Hibiya, who gives her her old clothes out of grace.

Chii's reason for having so many clothes would be the reason most people have lots of clothes: wearing the same thing over and over would be gross and boring. and it gives up cosplayers a very long list of stuff to do. ^_^

Yeah, Chii is a super persocon, robot, Chobit, etc etc.

Chii is a chobit. One of a limited series of persocons that Miss Hibiya and her husband made to be in the likeness of humans. They programmed actual emotions in them and the ability for them to learn habits and common executions. Miss Hibiya and her husband were part of a group that created persocons, but the group divided on the arguement that persocons should be used for profit as computers and assistants, or given the chance at life, like people have. Miss Hibiya and her husband wanted life for persocons and made persocons with personality. The rest of the group (the group that made Jiima and Dita to stop Chii) separated to make downgraded lesser versions of persocons to use as computers and assistants, like they wanted.

Miss Hibiya and her husband also programed Chii (and possibly Freya as well) to run a program when they have achieved happiness. A program that connects to all other persocons in the world to allow them to experience happiness, if only for a brief moment. This is what Dita and Jiima were made to stop, because if that program ran, there would be a possibility of damaging the basic profitable programming and making it more like Chii's, with personality and the ability to make choises. This is all my belief though. Funny how anime can make you come up with such thoeries on everything.


As for Chii's wide variety of clothing, not only would the same outfit get boring and dull, but CLAMP has a history of taking thier work beyond story and more into artwork. This was represented by the many outfits. This also give CLAMP a method to make more money, cause if Chii only wear one outfit, how many posters, wallscrolls, artbooks, phonecards, etc, could they really sell? I hope this helps explain some things. ^_^
