Sounds like a guy's fantasy...and it sure is funny., 19 October 2010
Author: The_Light_Triton (Black_triton14@hotmail.com) from In a Chair in my room

Let's head back to 1984, when James Cameron thought up an idea that many others thought up, but none was good as him. it was called the terminator. Months later, Terminator was up on the big screen. it was wildly successful, and it spawned several sequels and spin-offs, as well as tons of fanfiction by fans.

Skip ahead to 2001. The idea of intelligent robots got into the mind of Clamp, a mangaka group, consisting of all women. wait...all women? you mean there are some women out there that know what some guys fantasize about? Holy cow.

Anyways, The story is about a poor 18 year old boy named Hideki who wants his own personal persicon, a robot that can do menial tasks and help out around the house. He finds his wish laying in a heap of garbage wrapped up in thin strips of cloth. however, his newly found Persicon has lost her memory and can only say "Chi" repeatedly, so Hideki has to do things for her and teach her how to act properly. but also, she might be a special robot called a Chobit, which can think for itself.

I only discovered this anime last night, after a friend told me about it, and i got to say, Clamp had a good idea right here. i'm dying to see the rest of the anime, which isn't the case for most animes i see (i'm not too big into them) but this one is funny, and in my opinion, interesting.

I'll give it an 8 out of 10. I might come back and change it once i see the rest of the show.
