The nice thing about CLAMP is that they have a deft hand when it comes in interpersonal relationships. How "evolved" can machines get? Where will things go from here? Great lines, well thought-out plots, and a fair warning of what age this is suited for all make this a fine addition to your collection or (for you other Librarians out there) your public library. I have added this to our Graphic Novel collection, and will continue to buy.
This wonderful series raises some serious philosophical questions about what constitutes human, where technology will lead us, and how dependant we should be on machines. It is worthy of a second look even if you're not into "Graphic Novels" per se'
Innovative High School and College teachers could incorporate this into their curriculum, particularly if they are discussing Sociology or Psychology.
I find it a delight to read and a gem to own.
Having said that, I find it sad that the seriously negative feedback on this title stems from the sexual content....and yet the violence in any other series is accepted without any qualms. Not all graphic novels are for children. It clearly states the age this is geared for on the back of the book. I would not hand an 8 year old this book (they wouldn't get most if it anyway) nor would I hand a copy of "The Crow" to your average 11 year old. A little common sense goes a long way with this sort of book, and the public needs to be educated about Graphic Novels in general and Anime in particular.

The biggest drawback of the Chobits series is that it shifts gears very early, and those of us who liked the first couple of volumes are put off by the last few volumes because of their large differences.
Chobits started out as a funny little story about a techno-dunce who just got a free persocom, a human like female computer, and has no idea how to use it. We laughed as the techno-dunce, Hideki, tried to understand his friends as they tried to help him get his persocom running. Hideki was awkward, confused, and often embarrased, and Chi, the computer, was cute and mysterious.
This stuff is put way off to the side at the beginning of volume three, to make room for more mystery, drama, romance, and suspense. Many people may be disappointed in how each volume contains less and less humor.
The thing is, what humor there is in the later volumes is the exact same humor we've seen in the earlier volumes.
But wait! Of course, Chobits is more than humor. There are some things to keep you going. Hideki is very easy to identify with for the average teen-aged boy, techno-savy and techno-idiot alike. And there is plenty of romance and mystery, although I do miss the comedy.
About Volume 6: The main purpose of this volume is to answer questions. We find out what Yumi's problem is with persocoms, and what her problem is with Ueda. We find out what one of the odd things about Chi's programming is, and we find out exactly who those mysterious people in black are, although their motives are still a bit fuzzy. All in all, Volume 6 moves the story along nicely.
Chobits is a good story full of mystery and romance, and contains trace amounts of humor.

This is one of the best mangas I've ever seen. Let me emphasize first, parents, this isn't for children under, say, sixteen or seventeen really. It contains nudity, adult language, and mature themes.
That aside, where do I begin? Hideki is a 19-year-old prep college student (in Japan, Cram School....) who is from the country. He now resides in Tokyo while attending school, and there he sees Persocoms left and right. Persocoms, humanoid computers who can function as household appliances, companions, friends....even lovers. People are obsessed with them to the point of excluding all other human interaction, soley to be with their persocoms.
Hideki wants one, badly. He wants his games, his email, and yes, his internet porn. So when he's walking down the street and discovers this pretty Persocom discarded in a trash pile, he figures he's got it made. He hauls her home and starts her up....
But she can only say "Chi", and her data has been lost. However, a computer expert reckons that, since she manages to move without programming, she must be a "Chobit", a powerful new computer rumored to be capeable of working of their own free will, without dependency on any program.
Is she? Is Chi capeable of funcitoning of her own will, her own feelings, including love? What is her mysterious history? Humans fall in love with persocoms...can a persocom fall genuinely in love with a human? There are also others we meet, others whose lives have been torn apart by persocoms, and their stories. Are persocoms really worth their effects on people? Read this intriguing Manga and find out!

The only issue I have is the book is bent by the spine. I have no idea how it could happen. But it should have been listed as good or almost new but not new since the book is damaged. I'm not OCD about my books and I expect corner damage, that can even happen in a book store, but for the top near the spine to be bent makes it used-good or almost new. Deff not worth the amount in paid. Should have bought used like new.
