Editorial Reviews

From the celebrated manga group, CLAMP (X, Cardcaptor Sakura), comes a stimulating exploration of the connection between a bumbling young man and his extraordinary android.

Tokyo is abuzz with persocoms – humanoid computers that are virtually perfect. The socially and technologically inept Hideki is dying to get his hands on one. When he finds Chi abandoned in the trash, she’s cuter than any current model he’s ever seen before. But when he gets her home and turns her on, she has no data and only a single learning program installed. While Hideki puts his whole heart into teaching Chi the ins and outs of humanity, a mystery unfolds as a dark secret within her awakens.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of CLAMP's Best November 1, 2005
Format:DVD
This is an excellent anime, and a very nice take on the more traditional "boy meets girl plots". Some have said in the past that this series is yet another one about a lonely guy often a nerdy type, who is lucky enough to meet a lovely, and (not always) submissive female. In most anime, this female robot or android just happens to be a robot or android of some sort either created by or stumbled upon by the main character. However, that is far too simple a way to explain it and I think unjustly labels "Chi", the Persocom (android) within this story, and the other female androids.

Looking only at "Chi" as the story moves on it is obvious she is not submissive but filled with childlike innocence. This is what helps make the story so different from others with female androids. Chi is truly a child learning about the world around her and the very important rule it will seem she will play seemingly as one of the legendary "Chobits", the Peroscoms that legend holds are have real emotions and need no traditional programming to function.

As she learns about this world around her, and at times has her innocence exploited, something that can easily be mistaken for her being submissive, Hideki, the main male character and one that finds Chi, finds himself both as her teacher and her caretaker. As they both grown and learn together and begin to see the world through each other's eyes they naturally grow closer together in a way that works as being very easy to accept and believe could happen.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great anime series in a space-saving package November 19, 2005
Format:DVD
In the future, personal computers have developed into humanoid 'Persocons'. A prep school student named Hideki Motosuwa desperately wants to buy a Persocon but can't afford to. One fateful day he finds a Persocon in a garage pile and so he takes her home. When he turns on the Persocon, she can only say 'Chi' and that's what he names her. Over time it becomes apparent that Chi is more than an average Persocon. It seems that Chi might be a "Chobit", a type of advanced Persocon rumoured to have independent thought and feeling. How far will Hideki go to protect her and what will their relationship become.

The Chobits Collection contains all 7 DVD volumes and the Character Song Collection CD - a total of 8 discs in 4 double thinpak cases. The artbox has a plastic slipcase with the description and specs on it, so the artbox itself is pretty much free of any text.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've never reviewed a product before it's release but - - February 17, 2011
Format:DVD
I've got to do it for this. I'm ancient by most anime standards (over 60), but have loved good anime ever since my son talked me into watching this. I don't get into details on movies in my reviews, not wanting to "spoil" the watching for others. I will, though, say this much: Chobits, while seemingly aimed at younger viewers on a casual look, is really quite an in-depth view at taking advantage of innocence. And alot of light-heartedness in this makes it an almost laugh-out-loud movie, very enjoyable indeed! I recommend this to anyone who has never seen an anime. It's a great first plunge into the genre! Follow this up with Spirited Away, then Princess Mononoke, and I think you'll be hooked for life! RP

2.0 out of 5 stars Two Stars for the Blu-Ray, not the Series May 12, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I feel sad that I have to rate this product two stars. Chobits is a wonderful series - a long time favorite of mine, and definitely one I would introduce to other people. The style perfectly manages to capture both the adorable and the innocent, while still being serious enough for the deeper storyline.

I have the Pioneer-released DVD box set to compare this blu-ray release against and, unfortunately, it seriously disappoints. There is almost no appreciable difference in video or audio quality - the DVD actually looks a bit more vibrant. For a blu-ray, the menus are atrocious - there aren't many options, but with almost no way to tell what you're doing (text change from dark magenta to black, with no highlighting), it's difficult to tell what option you're on, and whether or not you've selected the right one. Where it truly fails, however, are the subtitles. On the DVD release, the subtitles were ugly and chunky, but easily readable. On this release, Funimation (a company that deals only in anime), has opted for illegibility. The font is light (not bold), white in color, and has almost no black stroke around it. Chobits has its darker scenes, but overall the palette is pastel, and these subtitles are unreadable and headache-inducing. It's almost as if they didn't bother to watch their product after putting it together. Subtitles might appear slightly different depending on what device you're using to play your disc, but this was on a PS3 - undoubtedly one of the most common blu-ray players.

If you prefer your anime subbed rather than dubbed, I can't recommend this release unless you're viewing it while using software that allows you to alter size, font, stroke, and color of subtitles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chobits Anime November 13, 2005
By Matt
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Though there are a lot of scenes that differ from (or were not present in) the manga, Chobits is a great anime series to watch. The way that the ending plays out is slightly different from the manga, but it still holds true in tone and execution (and is still a happy ending).

In regards to the dvd, the picture is beautiful with bright colors popping off the screen. Thankfully (as many tv shows on dvd do not have this feature) there are chapter stops for the intro and ending themes, though while they are catchy, I don't particularly want to see them for every episode. A cd is also included entitled the Chobits Character Song Collection.

If you liked the Chobits manga or are a fan of anime in general, don't hesitate to buy this dvd.
