"Chobits" Hits the Tube!

"Chobits" (CLAMP), the acclaimed manga serialized in Weekly Young Magazine began to be aired on TBS TV from April 2nd. After its appearance in the weekly, the popularity of the series skyrocketed.

"Chobits" is a tale revolving around a personal computer that has been designed to perfectly resemble a beautiful young girl. The main character, Hideki Motosuwa is a university student who just transferred from Hokkaido to Tokyo. All of his friends have personal computers, which in this story resemble young girls with cute cat-ears. Hideki starts wanting one, one of the reasons being that he likes to check out porn sites! Hideki finds a rather rare human-computer dumped in the trash near his house. He takes it home and starts it up, only to hear, "chiiiii". For that reason, he names her "Chi". As he gets to know his new toy, he finds that "Chi" has in fact no memory or knowledge. "Chi" gradually starts to remember her past as her relationship with Hideki deepens. It turns out that "Chi" may be the legendary personal computer, "chobits". Will "Chi" become Hideki's special someone???

"Mad House" who produce "Pita-Ten", are also behind "Chobits". Director, Morio Asaka and producer/character designer Hisashi Abe created the series. Rie Tanaka does the voice for "Chi", Tomokazu Sugita plays "Hideki", and Kikoku Inoue plays manager role, "Chitose Hibiya".

The first broadcast which took place in the late hours of April 2, featured the opening song "Let Me Be With You" ("ROUND TABLE featuring Nino"). The opening scene of Hideki starting up Chi is truly moving!

The second episode of this promising anime series will be broadcast at 26:25 on April 9. Check it out!
