Anime News Network : In the future, personal computers have developped into “Persocons”, mobile computers that look like human beings. Hideki Motosuwa, a prep school student, desperately wants to buy a Persocon but cannot afford to. One day he finds a Persocon that has been thrown away and decides to keep it. When he turns on the Persocon, all she can say is “Chii” so he decides to name her that. After a while it starts to become apparent that Chii is more than an average Persocon. Having much better performance, it seems that Chii might be a “Chobit”, a type of advanced Persocon rumoured to have independent thought.
In this city…there are no people. The lights are on in all the houses, but there’s nobody on the streets. Are there people inside? I peek in a window to find out. There are people. But they are with them. I look in other houses. These people are with them, too. This city is just like all the rest. Being with them is fun. More fun than being with people. Nobody comes outside anymore. There are no people in this city. I will leave this city and go to another one. I hope that I will meet someone. Someone just for me. But if that special someone falls in love with me… I will have to leave that someone. Even so, I want to meet that special someone. This is what I think as I leave the city with no people.
Darn it all! I want my own computer! I want to send e-mail too! But more than anything, I want to see those Internet porn sites!
Hideki Motosuwa (Chobits)
Are you the one just for me?

Shimbu: Really? then why is my chest so wet?
Shimisu: It’s the rain.. what else can it be?
Shimbu: can’t you even be a little bit honest Takaku?
Shimisu: I’m not honest.. I’m not attractive either..
Shimbu: yes you are.. you’re very attractive.. tremendously attractive
Shimisu : Look what I did.. I got make up all over you
Shimbu: It doesn’t matter.. just be quiet for a bit
Shimisu: But why?
Shimbu: When women cry.. they just look so vulnarable
Shimisu: all women?
Shimbu: You’re the best Takako
Shimisu: I’m afraid someone might be watching
Shimbu: I don’t care.. I told you I’ve already made my decision
