The show is set in a future where personal computers have taken over almost every aspect of people's lives. Chi, the titular character, is a Persocom, a type of PC that looks and acts like a human being. The show starts with Hideki Motosuwa, a student from the countryside, moving to Tokyo to study for his exams. He wants to buy a Persocom to help him with his studies, but he can't afford one until he finds Chi abandoned in the trash.

After bringing her home and turning her on, Hideki discovers that Chi is a special type of Persocom called a Chobit. Chobits are unique because they can think and feel like humans, but they are rare and highly coveted. Hideki is not sure what to do with Chi at first, but he soon learns that she has a significant impact on his life.

As the series progresses, Hideki learns about Chi's past and her connection to the mysterious Chobits. Along the way, he meets and interacts with other Persocom owners and learns about their relationships with their machines.

The show explores themes of love, loss, and what it means to be human. It also delves into the ethical implications of creating and owning machines that can think and feel like humans.

The animation and soundtrack are both top-notch, and the voice acting is excellent. The characters are well-written, and their relationships are believable and heartwarming.

Overall, Chobits is a must-watch for fans of romance, sci-fi, and anime in general. Its unique take on the relationship between humans and machines is thought-provoking and emotional, and its moving story will stay with you long after the series is over.

Chobits is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (27 episodes). The series first aired on April 2, 2002.
