Chobits, Volume 1

( 86 )

Overview

Hideki is your typical 20-year-old slacker. He didn"t get into college straight out of high school, so he"s working a dead-end job, can"t find a girlfriend, and is perpetually broke. If only he had a persocon - a humanoid robot - to keep him company, perhaps things wouldn"t be so bad. The problem with persocons is they are incredibly expensive, and it would take Hideki a lifetime to afford one. Then, one day Hideki finds a particularly cute female persocon dumped in a pile of trash, so he decides to take her ...

    Buy it.

    I won't bother repeating what everybody else has said.. ok, maybe I will. Chobits is good. There's something for everyone - art, story, action, character development, romance, comedy, and a pinch of ecchi for.. uh.. for whatever reason. Need I say more? Also worth mentioning, is that several volumes end in cliffhangers (2, 4, and 7 if I remember correctly). Not exactly the best thing, if you can't get them all immediately..

    An Adorable Story

    This is just one of those stories that touches you as you read it, and you find yourself really getting into the story. This story is one you won't be able to put down until you finish it!

    AWSOME

    This book was very good. I'm giving it 4 stars though because there is a lot of sexual stuff and a few nude pictures(You know, innocent little Chi curiously imitating porno magazines).. But otherwise it is one of the best manga ever. I read it all in one day!

    Perfect girl...Perfect world...

    Okay well i was in the book store and i was at the manga section and when i saw the cover of this book i thought WOW!So because i liked the cover i began to read it.After i was done reading it i knew i had to buy it.So thats what i did.It's really a great book between Hideki's perversion and Chi's cuteness.And even the artwork it'self tells a story of hope,joy,sorrow,and love.Though be WARNED this book is rated OLDERTEEN,for Vulgar Language,Nudity,And other Adult Situations.So if your under 11,Don't count on it!!!

    Beautiful Stranger...

    Id haft to say this is the best Manga iv read!The story line is great and so is the artwork!Each character from Hideki to Chi,is just so diferent.And as the stroy goes on Suprising encounters await and so do unwanted guest.Though one thing is for sure is that the story is just begining.

    Charming and Well Drawn!

    Chobits is an awesome series! The drawings are magnificient and the whole storyline of it is just amazing! Some parts want to make me slap the one of the main characters (Hideki) but it's still a wonderful series. Chi is the cutest thing ever, especially when she copies everyone. It's so cool when the storyline prgoresses, you start figuring out stuff about Chi and her past, which is more strange than you would expect for a regular persocom... or is she? Chobits is a series that keeps you reading to figure out what happens in the end. This is a must add to your collection, especially if you're a CLAMP fan!

    Chobits Rox My Sox!okay,that was lame...

    chobits is the best anime i've read so far.i got my first one about two weeks ago,and im in love with the book!i read it in one day too!i recommend chobits if you are just starting to read manga,or if you want to read a diffrent manga book.hideki is funny and cute.the anime facial expressions are funny.chi is so cute and she's very funny because she acts like a 5 year old.i thought it was funny when she was looking at hideki's porn magazines and copying the positions.they may have some nudity,which kinda annoys me cuz some of my guy friends like anime and they like to look at the nudity in the book. -_- oh yeah,the pictures make me want to color them,and i colored my fav picture.i know,i shouldn't have done it,but its only one pic!but i recommend chobits.

    Chobits RULES THE EARTH!!!

    The fact that something so realistic is so fascinating is a great entity. This series will spark the imagination of all who read it. The animation is adorable and the charecters are so lovable that it's hard to put this book down. If you enjoy love stories and beautiful pictures then you will adore chobits.

    Chobits(not just volume 1) rocks!

    This manga is my favorite. How could someone not enjoy reading this book about a guy who's in love with his human computer? Sure, it has some porn stuff in it, but who hasn't known there was such a thing as porn? Chobits continues to rock my soul.

    Awesome!!!

    Ok, so this book may contain some-nudity/perverted people, but o well. If your 10 or younger,(they are reasons why its rated 'Older Teen' )DONT READ IT. Anyway, Chii is very cute, even though it's only volume one, I'm in love with the series now. It's romantic,funny and science fiction, I rate it 5 stars all the way!

    awsome story

    This is a book i would recomend all people to read not just kids and manga fans its for those from actors to zooolgist to read its awasome, most people think that anime and comics and manga are just kids stuff easy reading for dumb people but i reads it it is not just pictures and kids stuff i find this book an exciting book for all to injoy. i must agree that comics and cartoons are usually silly kids shows and yes alot of manga and anime is based in high school but the story lines are no where near anything childish i find them romantic.

    Chobits!!!!

    I loved this book. At first I was a little shocked by the um...subject matter...but once i got past that, it was very good. Chi is so adorable. I love how she mimics everyone in the beginning. I would definately recommend Chobits to manga fans.

    THE Manga. THE.

    'If you haven't read Chobits, you haven't read manga.' That's what I've heard, and it's really true. This is the ultimate series -- some may frown on the 16 and up rating, but once you get past the cussing/nudity it's an extremely good book with beautiful artwork. The story deals with a cute and innocent robotic girl named Chi. She is very 'sexy,' but she is so sweet because she doesn't try to be that way. She's like a little child in a woman's body. I definitely recommend this to anyone interested in science fiction and romance. The only real nudity here is Chi's top half... so I think that younger teenage girls can read this. I don't know about giving it to guys, though... LOL

    HUMOR and ROMANCE comin' at ya!

    this book is the BEST!!!!! it's hularious,romantic and hartbreaking. if your the type of person who likes well(trying not to spoil it) perverted boys and uncanny distinctions of robot and man then this book is just for you! CLAMP are the most romantic authors. an ex-friend entroduced me to chobits. i wish i had money to by my own.(hehehe)
