Tokyopop does have a english version of the manga released. Volume 1 is out as far as I know of, and I've only read the manga... I wanna see the anime though ^^. For something that's made by CLAMP, chobits is actually pretty cute ^^. The story starts out as your typical money scrounging cram-student in Tokyo... in a word where computers also come in the form of cute to well-porportioned females ( that's what it seems like for the majority of them) called Persercoms.
As you cna expect, the cram-student doesn't have one, and he's getting workeup over it until onde day he finds one jsut lying in the trash...

From there I'll leave it up to you ^^. although just a note... you definately know it's made by Clamp when oyu see where they put the " on " switch lol ^^.

oh it sounds so cute! i love all of clamps stuff (except X....)
ill have to look for it.

Um, you should know it is um.....how do you say its....a bit "randy". So be warned if you watch it that there is lots of "attention" to the female body and not to mention the fact that Hideki is rather a pervert. I love Clamp, but this isn't one of my favorites. :(

Maybe it followed up on Miyuki-chan in Wonderland's art? I dunno, that's my guess ^_^;;

hehe yeah miyuki-chan was i bit...eh....randy...but it was still cute...all of the pics i see of chobits, the main characher (chii i think) is wearing the most beautiful costumes! this year at a-kon, yaya was dressed as her...she looked sooo wonderful *teary eyes* sigh...some day i hope to develope skills like her!!!! hehehe

Haruka, I have loads of Chobits stuff! Too bad my Chobits site is in portuguese only... (http://www.chiisheaven.cjb.net)
But here are some really good english links:

You can also dowload the episodes on the internet. It's available on Kazaa, Morpheus, iMesh, Direct Connect and other download programs like that.

cute yes, slightly randy....yes.
it reminds me how my friend said that clamp tends to rotate between bloodily agnsty and overly cute with strange undertones.
the manga seem preety good though, but some clamp ones are better i think.

Tha manga is worse then the anime. It is randy but I do not mind. it is not sick randy.. amusing randy cause they got Hideki soooo right. and he makes some funny facial expressions

Lillyxandra, I've done this dark Chii costume for last animecon!!! Here's my pic. Not a good one, but you can see the cosplay ^___^

waaaaiiii!!! mari-moon! you look so cute^_^

i love your boots X3333

it's most definately an anime for the guys...lol...my male friend wouldn't shut up about it, so when I finally watched it - I knew why....cute, adorable anime, but a bit preverted... I wasn't impressed at all....

Oh, and Clamp recycles characters, Hideki looks EXACTLY like Sakura's big brother Touya...I was dissapointed...

08-10-2002, 11:18 PM
Indeed! I thought it would be kinda a girlish anime... but then I started downloading it and... well, yeah ^_^

08-11-2002, 12:05 AM
I don't think Hideki looks like Touya, but I haven't seen the anime Chobits. And maybe it's cause I read so much shounen manga, but I wasn't too bothered by Chobits' . . . well, racy "bits" lol. Well, some of it . . . oO;;; (I bet you guys know what I mean.) The strip club bit was pushing it for me, even after all of DNA^2 and some I"s, AND Katteni Kaizou . . .

after watching 17 eps of chobits...i think its safe to say that i am addicted to it.....id have to say that this is clamps best work so far ^_^ i love chii! and i dont really mind all the perverted stuff...its not as nearly as bad as some animes, and they pull it off so funny! i think chobits is very unique compared to clamps other works (not saying that thier other stuff is no good).
viva la chii!

I love the ecchi-ness of this series; a very nice departure for CLAMP (too much cuteness versus too much angst).

It's like Golden Boy...except for girls.

08-12-2002, 02:05 PM
its so cute. Chii always goes, "Chii~~!" It's adorable. XP
