so i searched earlier, and it seemed like there is not a thread like this already, so i thought i'd start one.
I was just wondering what people thought about chobbits (manga or anime).
This was actually the series that got me interested in manga (it was recomended to me by a freind). i normally don't like the romance thing, but I found this interesting. I also liked the indirect Asimov references.
/edit: if there is already a thread like this, just let me know
I liked the idea "Persocons are better than humans : True or False" stuff. Other than that, it was kinda funny. But the conclusion was quite surprising for me - it seems Persocons are better than a living thing
The story got repetitive, and the art is typical CLAMP (i.e. crap). Nothing new to see here.
Chobits is great, I have all the manga volumes on paperback. And the anime is great too.
Good sentence to describe my words. its a real crap

I did like the children's book within the story, though.
Well. the art is good. But i do not like the concept of the story. Has man fallen so low to rely on loving a Persocon ???? i do not even want to imagine that kind of world. Cause it is not romantic
LONG LIVE HIME-SAMA. MY LIFE FOR RUMBLANDIA!
^ Zima and Dita were apparently self-aware, their love is "real" if it matters to you. Besides the entire idea is that people are incapable of deriving the true cause of other's behavior, it's neither better nor worse than a relationship with a human.
It's somehow sick - this isn't love. If you don't want to be with Persocon, you can always turn her off. If she doesn't agree with you, you can reprogram her. If she dies, you can replace her with a persocon with the same looks and maybe you could even copy her memory.
She doesn't needs to be feed, she have no use of presents and she needs to be faithful.
It's too easy to call it love - Zima and Dita were strange and who said they weren't programmed to love each other
That's assuming that human behavior doesn't operate in the same manner, you can't really tell what another person (or even yourself) thinks, right?
How can you judge anyone by any standard other than their actions?
