Chobits Review

Written By: CLAMP
Directed By: Morio Asaka
Studio: Madhouse

Story line (S) ******
Family Friendliness (FF) **
Fan service (F) ******
Cultural Hints (CH) ****

The story takes place in a Japan where everyone’s addicted to persocoms instead of their smartphones. Persocoms are expensive androids that can do whatever you program them to do. Ex: cashiers, maids, cooks, etc.

Hideki, a country boy who is attending prep school for college, wants one of these cool robots. Our hero finds a persocom in the trash, which he gladly takes home since he’s too broke to buy one of his own. What he doesn’t know is that there is more to his new persocom than meets the eye.

If you have read or watched previous works made by CLAMP, you will know that anything PG-13 will definitely have some sexy fanservice. And boy do they deliver. >.< I have noticed that the anime is a bit more toned down compared to the magna though. I would not recommend this anime for you more innocent folk unless if you know how to space out during pervy scenes.

There are some examples of Japanese culture in the series. You learn about stuff that’s common in other anime such as bath houses, tiny apartments, etc. You also see how the education system works for ronins.
