Chobits is a story that went form an interest to an addiction and finally an obsession for me in a matter of a week. The series gives the viewer plenty of time to enjoy each character for their own traits. Many of the middle episodes could be seen as fluff and filler. But somehow in this story, all of the vacations, errands, idle chit-chat, and meals together create a broad snapshot of everyone's life together. The viewer doesn't just get told that certain characters care for each other, it all gets acted out. In doing so, the audience virtually becomes a member in this group of friends.
The series creates a delicate social environment between the main characters (Chi & Hideki) and all their friends. The constant threat of destruction of this environment has kept me hooked from the beginning. As the story nears it's end, the threat becomes more real. Even Chi's ability to stay functioning has been at the mercy of the simple flick of a "secret switch". What started as a simple perverted joke at the beginning, became the strongest example of the fragile nature of love and life.
The final episodes add a level of intensity above any typical love story. Science-fiction aside, the love theme becomes very human and could be thought of as an allegory to many interracial relationships in our own world. Anyone who has had a difficult time with family/friends accepting a relationship with differences (i.e. age, race, culture, language (personally, mine fits'em all)) could easily relate with Hideki. Watching him deal with his conflicted feelings toward Chi hit home way too hard for me.
I've seen many comments on the web complaining about how predictable the ending was.Read more ›
If you thought Volume 5 started to get odd, wait 'til you see this DVD. The charecters you knew - changed. Things you thought could never happen - happened. Just wait, Chobits fans. You're in for a treat. ^___^
The characters get a "makeover"-- a new layer of complexity that adds to their appeal and draws away from the frequent "cardboardness" of quite a few anime characters.
These characters have evolved through this series; even Dragonfly (the formerly one-dimensional, opportunistic hacker) has grown to become less "villainlike". Yumi (the young student who helps Hideki get a job at My Pleasure) is less perky and more realistic. And even Chi literally reveals a definitely "different" side of herself, which we have gotten brief hints of even in some of the early episodes.
My only (tiny) complaint is that more of the changes in the episodes of Disk 6 could have been explored a bit earlier; as it is, the details are rushed over as the story ends, which disturbs the slow, easy pace established early in the series. Not a huge problem, to be sure, but enough to jar the viewer slightly and make them wonder what's going on.
The ending is very well executed; it will make you cry at first, and then, after a while, you will be happy.
My only regret is, now I'll have to find another addictive series to get into. LOL!
Episode 23: Chi Answers - Minoru, "Dragonfly" (Chi's repentant and chastisted kidnapper), and a bevy of Persocoms are hard at work trying to discover Chi's origin once and for all. It is fairly certain Chi is one of the legendary "Chobits," but in seeking confirmation, Minoru's favorite Persocom, Yuzuki, is damaged in a hacking attempt. In exploring the nature of Minoru and Yuzuki's relationship, Hideki starts to analyze his true feelings toward Chi.
Episode 24: Chi Decides - This episode is mostly about Yumi, and her past relationship with Hiroyasu Ueda, the bakery manager where Chi works. As revealed in a previous episode, Ueda was deep in love with and actually married to a Persocom.
Episode 25: Chi Puts on and Takes Off - The true origins of Chi and Freya (Dark Chi)are revealed here. Hideki tries to confess his feelings to Chi. But the two mysterious Persocoms have decided to act, because Chi poses great danger to all Persocoms.
Episode 26: The Only Person for Chi - Chi activates, with glowing eyes. Dita tries to stop Chi. What will happen to Chi and Hideki?
Note: There IS a volume 7 for the series - but don't get excited! There is little, if any new material on it. The volume, called "Chat Room" consists of three recap episodes. There is a cute short involving the two mini Persocoms, but if you are looking for new material, there is very little.
