another disappointing factor was the legend of the Chobits thingy... geeez, that was it?! the term chobits is just an endearment?! what the heck have we reading this series for if chobits were nothing special anyway?!

I think the chobits ending was pretty bad but at least it wasnt unrealistic or too sappy, ok it was sappy but in a different way. It was a bit of a supirse that Chii wasn't really that special, she was basicaly the same as Yuzuki with a self teaching program etc but with a better firewall and the "special" program which wasnt that special - can access other persocoms and if needed remove all personal identification.

I was disappointed with Chobits too. I think CLAMP made this manga for the guys coz isnt it published in a magazine where girls in bikinis are in covers... Anyway, most of the guys I know like this manga/anime too...

It was previously mentioned that Chobits was appeal to guys because of the "sexy" pictures of Chii. Now, maybe it's just me, but A. Chii is a computer that LOOKS like a person B. Chii looks like she's eight Now I'm sure some fanboys are attracted to little girls, but I'm sorry, I'm not one of them.
Also, agreed that the ending was very anitclimactic.. what was that "special thing" again??

Like many others I think the manga started out with a lot of potential. It really started to get a bit boring towards the end. Certain idea's were okay...I liked most of the themes, but just loving a "thing" doesn't really get to me. Okay, she wasn't exactly a thing and I know that most of it was about Chi being a real person and all, but no matter how I look at it I can't just see her as a real person... She can be broken and what's with the memory getting erased from a button... I just see it all as like pressing a selfdestruct button or something. The ending was kind of sweet, but well.. I just can't help looking into the future... Chi would stay always like a beautiful little girl no matter how many years pass. Although a computer might get a bit old... I actually never thought that Chobits was meant for guys.... though I know that some people think so... I think it seems more like a girls' manga...

I don't hate Chobits but I don't love it either. People say it's too unrealistic, but that's the whole thing manga is about! I do admit that some bits are a tad boring, but the artwork makes up for it!
