Awesome without a doubt, 5 October 2006
Author: LegoCrazy from Shakuras

I first read all of the manga, and was rather depressed because it was so good and cool... but it ended after a mere five books. Kind of like drinking a really good drink, and looking at the bottom of the glass and having that depressed feeling.

Back to the anime now. It was different than the manga in several ways; some more enjoyable, some that added an EXTREME twist, and some that were just slightly disappointing. Happens with all animes though... Chobits had the cute little Plum, and in the anime her name became Sumomo... Plum is cuter. It's ending was also different as well.

Age wise, it is perfect. It has elements that teenagers and little kids alike will like, although some parts are a little bit too kiddish, it's still a well rounded good anime.

I had read all the manga, and saw the box set at Best Buy and bought it. It was around forty, but it was well worth it.

And now I depart.
