Description
From Tokyopop:

Hideki's just like every other guy in the 22nd century. He just wants a good job, a good car, and a sexy robot girlfriend to call his own. Until he lands a job, he'll never be able to afford his own 'Persocom' companion. Hideki's luck changes when he discovers Chi--an adorable but seemingly stupid Persocom--tied up in a pile of trash. His first robot companion turns out to be a lot more responsibility than he expected, and she gets him into quite a few embarrassing situations. It's 'boy-meets-girl' for the cyber age.

Sad, but interesting

This manga attempts to give a different perspective on the matter ("loving" an automation), and even goes as far as to rationalize it, but--in the end and throughout--you're simply left with an awkward feeling of disgust and emptiness. A living thing experiencing "love" for a unliving thing (and wholeheartedly accepting the fact that it's just an automation) is simply a facade of happiness, and is even beyond fantasy. The manga seems to be targeted at those who might fancy such a future, and it is perhaps interesting if you read it from this perspective. It is not so much that one desires a machine (the fact that they are images of humans without doubt implies the want of a human partner). Rather, the attraction of such a reality is a partner that permanently and unconditionally loves the person, for whoever they may be; they will look at no one else but you, and are, in fact, incapable of feeling otherwise. This, in itself, is the fantasy, since we are all driven by selfish and volatile inclinations. This pattern can be seen in many different mangas, but this is only one avenue through which it can be expressed.

What I will say is interesting about the manga is being able to have a glimpse into the mind of someone who has these fantasies, and also a saddening look into a potential future for some.

Chobits is Chobits. What's more to say?
The artwork is amazing. Just spectacular. And the story is pretty deep. It goes through lots of well displayed emotions, and when it all comes together at the end, it's just beautiful. Make sure to read it carefully as to not miss any important details.
It really brings "Love" into a different sort of perspective too, not just between normal people and personacoms, but with Chi and Hideki in a different way as well.

I'm not a big fan of CLAMP for the their overtly idealistic romance plots and picture-perfect girls. Although "Chobits" still contains the things I previously mentioned, its themes are not only heart-warming, but also reaches a level of depth and maturity that I think some other CLAMP mangas lack. I especially love the little unexpected twist in the end, and I still sometimes wonder what Hideki and Chi's lives are like after the story.

The manga wasn't too long or too short and there was very good character development.

A cute CLAMP series

A really strange sci-fi romance, though not surprising since it's a CLAMP story. A a female robot goes through a massive identity crisis while the male lead falls in love with her. It's not as perverted as many other series with similar ideas, and contains a lot more morality as well. The main characters are really cute and the story flows well without dragging.

It was too f***ing short, and the end kinda makes you go "WTF..." But I loved the art work and it's a very nice story. I wish he had picked Yumi instead though.

[edit by mod, for foul language]
So after reading it again I have to change my opinion for the worse, Chobits was one of my first mangas I've read and I think I was too generous when I commented it, because this manga is crap. The art is normal CLAMP quality (which is very good) but the story and the characters are just unbelievable ridiculous, in the end it is about guys who can't get laid and so they **** their computers... really that's gross. But if you ever had the wish to marry your hard drive go give it a try.
