Having failed to earn admission to a university, Hideki Motosuwa has moved to the big city, determined to study his hardest for next year's exams. However, an unusual distraction presents itself one unsuspecting day in the form of Chii, a robotic young girl that has been discarded in the trash. In a world where an increasing number of people turn to these 'persocoms' for company, the bonds and limits of human relationships are tested as flesh manages to fall in love with the machine itself...
On a day that seemed ordinary, a spaceship crash landed in Tokyo bay, filled to the brim with beautiful aliens that would come to be known as DearS. Since that day, though all of Japan seems to have gone DearS-crazy, one high school boy named Takeya it still not impressed by the phenomenon. But things change for Takeya when he finds a lone DearS girl on the side of the road, who forces herself into his apartment, and his life! Now, he must brave a plethora of complications, misunderstandings, and embarassments, when all he wants to do is be left alone!
They have a very similar storyline; a regular student living an everyday life, but finds a beautiful girl on the streets. In both anime, these "beautiful girls" happen to be a robot (in Chobits) or an alien (in DearS). The two non-human girls sees the guy who found them basically as their master/owner, each causing different troubles for their "owner". The two anime are filled with lots of ecchi-type humor.
DearS is basically another version of Chobits with some changes: instead of a computer it's an alien, but in both series the characters want to serve their masters in any way possible =P. DearS is a little more ecchi than Chobits but the main character in DearS is more of a jerk. Overall if you liked Chobits you will like DearS.
Both Chobits and DearS are about oddly-placed love. Instead of a robot designed to serve humans in Chobits, DearS is based on an alien slave who tries her best to serve her master, but tends to end up doing something stupid instead.
"Chobits" revolves around the same kind of theme as "DearS": both have a girl who suddenly appears sleeping in the main character's room, and who is totally "alien" to the outside world. Besides that they both have similar problems concerning the question of "can you fall in love with someone who isn't human?"
I recommend DearS because it's basically the same as Chobits except it's a different plot and it involves aliens that "happen" to look like really hot girls. It's good and I like it better than Chobits.
In both DearS and Chobits an average guy is lucky enough to stumble upon a hot non-human chick and wind up sharing his home with her! Although Chii is an android and Ren is an alien they still share the same charming and innocent disposition which may make both series appealing to fans of the respective anime. The series both share very similar main characters, but this doesn't feel like a rerun, it's more like a new twist on a favorite!
In Chobits a simple guy finds a robot in the trash, while in DearS a simple guy finds an alien slave in the street; in both anime, the main female character is a slave to her master and must do anything her master says, while the male characters are a little shy at first.
So if you like the master/slave-type relationship in anime (especially cute slaves), you'd like DearS and Chobits!
If you liked Chobits, then you'll like DearS, mainly because they both deal with an outside girl who is suddenly dropped into a young man's life. Also, they both have very good endings. So if you don't want to be disappointed, you should watch DearS.
The basis of the plots in both DearS and Chobits is the sudden appearance of an empty-headed girl in the life of our protagonist. She ends up staying at his apartment and he has to teach her how to lead a normal life. Cue the silly anime antics!
They are first and foremost comedy anime, and second, drama anime; both are ecchi, as well.
If you liked Chobits you will also like DearS (or vice versa) because in Chobits Hideki finds a "persocom," and in DearS he finds a DearS (and DearS are much like persocoms).
Both anime have a similar plot, involving an average student getting his hands on a bishojo by accident and bringing it home. Just from the first episode, the resemblance is already astonishing: both have the exact same construction of the plot, similar comical situations, similar personalities of the main characters, and the same graphical style and quality. DearS's ecchi scenes are less subtle than the ones in Chobits, but both series give off the same feeling.
Both series have the same theme. While Chobits is somewhat more innocent then Dear, DearS does have more fan service. But in general the theme is the same and chances are if you liked one, you will like the other too.
Chobits and Dears have similar main character a student who "founds" girl in chobits it's a cute persocom and in DearS an alien girl in both anime they do their best to make him happy... Both anime have a mistery What are Chobits and What dears realy are and do they have human like feeling?
Enter social outcast guy who just sucks with the ladies and add a brainless robot/alien chick that doesn't quite understand the real world. What do you get? Why, both Chobits and Dears, of course! Both series focus on a rather unpopular guy who stumbles upon a needy/broken girl. The girl imprints on the guy and from then on devotes herself to him. Much comedy, embarrassment, and romance ensue in each of them, along with a similar plot line in which the girl is more than she appears. If you liked one it's almost guaranteed you'll like the other.
Both of these animes are almost the exact same thing. The only difference is that DearS cuts out some extra stuff that Chobits has. The anime starts off the same way for both animes, except that in DearS the main character doesn't want a Dears, while in Chobits he does. Other than that, the main character finds the DearS/Chobit takes it to his home and starts teaching it the life and culture. If you liked one, than you will defiently like the other one.
Bothseries are about your run of the mill guy who happens to stumble upon a pretty girl walking home one day and has her live with him. If you liked one series, you'd deffinately like the other
These two shows feature the same basic plot. Guy meets girl who isnt exactly human and tries to teach her how to be normal while developing feelings for her. Both are very funny and should be watched.
Both of those animes include beautiful girls, that are not really human. Of course they try their best to fit in. At the beginning in both of those animes, those girls can not speak or do anything normal humans could. Classically those girls mysteriously hook up with a poor guy, who now has the duty to teach the girls speak and do other logical stuff, which of course means lots of funny scenes in the progress. If you liked one of them, you would absolutely like the other one, as they are very much alike.
They are both about the same thing, a male with a robot girl in their house.
The series both revolve around the adventures of the girl and the male character with ecchiness all over the place,especially in Dears.
Well, this one is extremely easy. Both series start with finding robot/alen girl in whom the main character falls in love with. Both girls the tittled Dear and the tittled Chobit do not know much about living in society and everyday problems. Both series are very humorous but they can be very serious at times. Definitelly better than usual harem shows. Worth a watch.
Both series focus on a relation ship between a somewhat clueless male and a simple-minded non-human girl. Although Chobits' story prevails over DearS'. DearS steps on Chobits face when it comes to ‘stupid' funny and ecchi moments. It depends on what kind of anime you are looking for.
Both animes are very similar. They both have a main character who has quite a few embarrassing moments with the not-quite-human individual that lives with them. They are both hilarious to watch because in almost every episode they do something studpid or say the wrong thing.
Both of these animes are about boys who find themselves getting into prediciments over robotic women. The romantic aspects of both series is very similar.
Both of these anime's are about a guy that meets a strange girl and has to live with her and teach them how to be a normal person.
DearS has a storyline that is a lot like the storyline of Chobits. I think if you liked Chobits, you'd also like the other. In both stories there is a girl that's not human and takes you into hilarious situations. The humor are also a lot like each other and also the romantic aspects are nearly the same. Although I think DearS is more cheerfully than Chobits.
I believe if you liked Chobits, you'd probably like DearS too. I believe this because it's sorta in the same style in the sense of guy doesn't like these abundant alien/robot girls, but then one night he gets one, and then he eventually falls in love with it. They're both funny, and they have those really awkward moments when the clueless girl asks an embarrassing question.
If you liked it you should definetely watch it, its have similar plot so if you liked one of it you should be satisfied.
These two are totally alike. Both about a guy who lives on his own and find a woman on the street. In dears it is an Alien and with chobits more like an android. But with both they are like slaves and totally need to be re-educated in every way.
The animation and humor are also very much alike and also there is some nudity and sexual discussion in both. I am sure that if you like one you will have to like the other too.
DearS and Chobits are often said to be twins. While I personally found Chobits much more palitable, both are quality series that follow much the same plot.
DearS and Chobits are fundamentally the same. They both deal with a student finding an alien, or persocom, with little knowledge of human ways who they gradually gain feelings for. They are both ecchi, DearS more blatantly so. In each, Chi and Ren will do anything for their masters and love them.
DearS=An ecchi version of Chobits
So in other words they're almost the same show, but DearS being a bit more superficial.
I'm sure almost anyone who has seen the two could agree with me on this.
Chobits and DearS are very similar. They both are about boy and suddenly appearing in his life pretty girl. Also, they both are ecchi comedies.
Just mentally switch the words "robot" and "alien" in these shows, and I dare you to find the difference. Both series follow the same character and story framework, but that doesn't mean they're not good. They're both very fun series to watch, and I recommend them both.
Both of these shows are very much the same. main charater girls are both oblivuous whats going on around them in the world and the guy helps her teach her little by little while they both slowly fall in love with each other. Both DearS (Ren) and Chobits (Chii) are cute girls they are different Ren is an alien while Chii is a coumputer that looks like real human girl. Between the 2 shows Chobits has a stronger more emotional story but DearS is more like a nice romantic comendy. Both of are great so give it try u might like them
This shows are very similar. They both about humans falling for aliens/robots. If you liked one you should like another. However "Chobits" are a bit sadder at places.
Both have moe girls that do anything for your 'owner', chobits has more romance and a awesome story that makes one of the best animes ever. DearS has more ecchi/fan-service, but is really good too. If you liked one, watch the other!.
Both main characters live on their own one day accidentally find cute girls which aren't human.They start living with them. The non-human girl doesn't know about the language or world around them the the main guy has to teach them. Other people are looking for them because they're different than others of their kind.
both of these animes both have the same basic storyline,they are both found and unintentionaly(pardon my spelling) make it into the main characters life (hideki for chobits and takeya for DearS.)
Both of these anime are basically a reflection of each other. However they are different enough to avoid boring you and giving you a feeling of "been there done that". I feel like Chobits has a bit more touching story while DearS is more comedic.
They both basically have the same story, but DearS is just a little more funny. I recommend both because of the slave-like nature of both girls
Both Chobits and DearS are based around a chanceless guy with goals in mind who happens to cross paths and end up caring for either a humanless emotionless thoughtless android (Chobits) or a imcomplete minded alien (DearS). The series both develop as the characters learn to live with one another, regrardless if your just a country boy in the city or you just want a normal school life. The series both use the same concept around both the android and alien are somewhat... out of the loop if you will, they have no real sense for common sense creating all sort of trouble for our leads. Both create several fun situations from this, If it's a laugh from a ecchi scene or maybe just how our male leads are terrible people matched with thoughtless androids/aliens.
Both shows have almost the exact same storylines, a boy finds a girl (android in chobits and alien in dears) and takes her home, and teaches her about this world. Both have quite a lot of ecchi and chobits has a better story but if you liked one you'll probably like the other one as well.
Dears and Chobits are both romantic comedies with a average male and a cute, but clueless heroine. The demeanor of the show is very similar to one another.
Both Chobits and DearS have a male lead who inadvertantly discovers (and comes to live with) a non-human female. That is not all that the have in common, though. Both also have a lot of ecchi, comedy, sci-fi elements (Chobits pulls this off better, though), and even some romance.
If you liked one, you'll see the similarities in the other!
For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse. Unable to speak or function as a normal human being, she is named Nyu by the duo, and taken into their home in an effort to save her. But what neither teenager knows is that this innocent young girl is actually a killing machine -- an experiment gone terribly wrong -- and it is only a matter of time before the murderer in her awakens again...
Basically, Chobits is the same plot as Elfen Lied. Someone finds a female that doesn't know a lot and has to learn everything. The only difference is that in Elfen Lied the female turns into a monster machine.
In Elfen Lied and Chobits, there is a girl who loses her memory and has a second side to her. They are both found and taken care of. The difference between the two is that Elfen Lied has a more bloody side to it.
Both series are about a cute, naive girl with a secret who falls into the care of a kind guy. Elfen Lied is a much darker version of this tale, whereas Chobits is light-hearted.
The main heroine characters, Chii in Chobits and ‘Nyuu' or Lucy from Elfen Lied, are very similar to each other and act the same way when they first appear. I thought that the story lines were very similar to each other too, except Elfen Lied has a great deal of gore in it whereas Chobits focuses more on the ‘cute' aspect of the characters.
Both Chobits and Elfen Lied have to do with love and girls who are not human. While Elfen Lied is more violent and Chobits is funnier, both have the same feeling of loneliness surrounding the two girls.
In Elfen Lied and Chobits, a young boy has to take care of a girl who has almost no memories, and acts like a child. But unlike her appearance, the girl has a dark past and memories within.
From out of nowhere, two seemingly harmless and innocent young women fall into the lives of our two protagonists - Kohta and Hideki, two young men with plenty on their mind already. With no concept of everyday life, or even of manners and normal behavior, expect plenty of opportunities for funny moments and compromising situations as Chii and Nyuu have to be taught everything from scratch, and also show a liking for running around completely naked, but fail to understand why people have a problem with that.
Yet these two young ladies also have another side to their story and plainly they have another function in life. The lives they have begun to make for themselves now will be directly threatened and haunted by their old lives, as their true identities and abilities are revealed to all over time. Will Kota and Hideki still want to be their friends when they learn the truth?
The sense of humor concerning the antics of a naive girl who has a darker side is a pervasive theme throughout both Chobits and Elfen Lied. Although where Chobits is usually a light hearted comedy, Elfen Lied is a darker, more violent exploration of what it means to be human.
Chobits has a bit of a less death centered plot then Elfen, but still has to do with loving someone that isn't human.
A cute naked girl is found by a boy (in the case of EL, a boy AND a girl) and is taken with to the finder's home. In the start she can only say one thing, but soon she develops her own personality That is the basic for EL and Chobits, both series deal with the whole psychic theme about the relationship between humans and other beings. If you like 'weird' shows with a deeper meaning, these series are just the thing for you!
Oh yeah, and both contains some suggestive scenes that the typical male audience would like :)
Both Nyuu from elfen lied and Chii from chobits are found naked or nearly naked and when first found.
And are unable to speak and both Nyuu and Chii are found by someone who is willing to go out of their way to help them.
but while Chii in chobits learns very fast Nyuu learns slowly in both animes we see the people who found them struggle to teach them and pay to keep them happy.
This is because the two stories start have many surprising similarities. Hideki (Chobits) finds Chi in the dumpster, naked....well almost. Same in Elfen Lied, Nyuu/Lucy is found naked on the beach. Nyuu is named Nyuu because it is the only thing she can say, "Nyuu" as Chi can only say "Chi". Both have a past that they cannot remember...for the time being. As this being only the way the characters in the two animes are introduced, the stories themselves have too much in common. Lucy on one hand has a history/future of killing while Chi is rather quite innocent. Elfen Lied has gore while Chobits is about love. But both are pretty good and one connects to the other through the that characters a introduced....
Oh and...Chi has those persicom ear thingies. Lucy/Nyuu has Horns.
It is similar because 'Chi' lost her memory and went to Hedeki and 'Nyu' lost her memory and went to Kouta, plus the two girls are naked a lot.
The main character Nyu and Chi is kinda alike, both is cute and naive exept that Nyu turns in to a killing machine sometimes. Overall both shows are great.
A little of an odd reccomendation, I know, but if you liked chobits, and don't mind blood, then Elfen lied is a good way to go, as it has the memory - wiped long haired girl, who is very cute, and can only say one word.
If you like elfen lied, abd dont mind cuteness and pervyness, then chobits you should go! The same reasons as above, a girl, or persocom loses her memory, and has to be taught, and she too, has her own cute little catchphrase, as the only word she can say.
Also, both female lead characters have strange ears in some way.
So essentially... these are the exact same show... In Chobits, we have a robotish lifeform with a split personality that can only say "Chi!" (Initially). She was found out of the blue one day, and taken in by a bumbling boy who freaks out in nerve-wracking panic whenever he sees something he shouldn't. In Elfen Lied, we have a robotish lifeform with a split personality that can only say "Nyu!" (Initially). She was found by a bumbling boy who freaks out in nerve-wracking panic whenever he sees something he shouldn't.It of course differentiates as Chobits is a romance adventure, and Elfen lied is a horror thriller.
Take out the bloody parts of Elfen Lied and replace them with A.I.s, and you have chobits. Amnesia-laden leading ladies and the men who care for them.
In both anime, a clueless girl is found by a boy. The boy names the girl the only word she is able to say. The big difference between "Chobits" and "Elfen Lied" is the fact that "Elfen Lied" is much bloodier and more explicit. It also is a deeper, more heartbreaking anime than "Chobits."
You would like Elfen Lied as well as Chobits because they both have a boy teaching a girl who can only say one word.
Keitaro Urashima is somewhat of a failure. In order to fulfill a promise he made to a girl fifteen years ago, he has tried time and again to get into Tokyo U but has never managed to pass the exam. However, fate smiles upon him and he ends up working for his aunt, managing an all-girls dorm! Living with the feral Kaolla, the timid Shinobu, the sake-loving Mitsune, the blade mistress Motoko and the punch-happy Naru, can Keitaro keep his focus and keep his promise? And will he ever end up meeting that girl from his past?
Love Hina and Chobits are romantic comedies that are beautifully drawn, wonderfully written, and just plain fun to watch. If you're a lover not a fighter, here's a couple of anime for you!
Chobits and Love Hina are a love story with a difference. Both series are based around one male character trying, when all said and done, to find a partner to share his life with. One is more a story of his childhood love, while the other is more about trying to choose between current female colleagues. Both are full of disaster and comedy that is bound to amuse you.
Nothing seems to be going Keitaro's way when a sudden twist of fate occurs, landing him in the vicinity of attractive females.
If you loved Chobits, you'll love Love Hina because they are both romantic comedies, the main character in each is a male with below-average academic and social skills, and there's a deeper side to the characters' relationships.
Both shows are about a completly nerd guys who what's more have a lot of problem with studing. They find themselfes in a new city whey the have to focus on studing but instead they fall in love with girls they unexpectedly find in their place. Both stories are also extremly funny and full of ecchi jokes.
love hina and chobits are both for people who like harem/ecchi anims. both have it's many ecchi moments and also a lot of comedy :)
Both also have a guy who easily get nosebleeding from looking panties and breasts.
These two have a lot in common. The Male in the series seems to find attraction to the near by girls. And has an awkward way of aprochign the girls he likes in fear of what someone might think or do. And with that, they always fnid themselves in the most awkwrad of positions with them!! if you liked on then im sure youll like the other
There are both about a male student that strugels to get his greade better in order to beable to get into a uneversity. and all what that means. Also both have a romance in the plot, that seems out of reach or "wrong" for the main character and it have a important part of in the story. But both also contains alot of funny moments wich make you wanna keep watching them.
Both these shows involve male students who while attending school, find themselves living with girl(s). They have to survive school while often being put in very awkward situations. Both involve plenty of ecchi, funny, and romantic moments.
Keiichi Morisato is just your average college student until one day, fate interjects as he makes a call for take-out food. Unknown to him, he reaches the Goddess Help Line, and contacts a goddess named Belldandy, who grants him a wish. Thinking it to be a joke, Keiichi wishes for her to be his girlfriend 'forever'.
If you liked Ah! My Goddess, you would like Chobits because both are really cute love stories with a male lead and and a "non-human" female lead. Both series struggle with the same paradox: how do you confess your feelings (and admit them to yourself) that you're in love with a goddess/machine?
Take a normal boy and put him in an extraordinary circumstance and you have a recipe for a great anime. If you like comedy, drama, and romance then Ah My Goddess and Chobits are right up your alley.
While the main character in Chobits is not quite as much of a loser as Keichi in Oh! My Goddess, both anime create a believable fantasy about a guy who gets a girl he doesn't believe he's worthy of. OMG, though, is much more beautifully-drawn and has a better story.
both are about hapless guys who's lives change drastically when attractive,clueless girls stumble into their lives through unusual circumstances. both try to be gentlemen while trying to explore their feelings for the girl with unusual powers. although there is more fan service in chobits.
Both series have a shy guy with a great girl.
Those girls aren't exactly your average highschool girl type, and both of those girls don't know much about the outside world, which creates awkward situations.
Both of them contain a high amount of humor, mistakes, miscommunications and are great animes.
I'd say, if you like one of them, you'll probably like the other one as well.
Both of these shows feature a loving girl that only wants to make the boy she loves happy. In Chobits the characters face more problems due to the girl being a robot, and in Ah! My Goddess they start out really strong and only start having any troubles near the end of the OVA.
These series each focus around a rather clueless/innocent male suddenly getting very close to an even more clueless/innocent female. If you enjoy that type of dynamic, with slow budding romances, these series go well together.
Take your average male student, and give him the girl of his dreams. Except, she isn't just any girl. Chii's an A.I. without a memory, and Belldandy's a goddess with heavenly powers. Hideki and Keiichi have basically no clue what to do with such a girl. Aside from Ah! My Goddess's older animation style, they are quite similar. I definitely think you'll like one if you liked the other.
Hideki and Keiichi are very similar - both incredibly naive and socially awkward college students, and both have big hearts and are fundamentally sweet.
There are so many similarities between these two animes, I think anyone who enjoys one will almost certainly enjoy the other... Chii and Belldandy are so alike. Both very innocent and naive to the ways of the world, both adorable and beautiful at the same time. Neither are human, which leads to them having very similar difficulties in dealing with society... Chii --> Panties. That's all I need to say on that~
They also both have a 'queen bee' on their cases, which is equally as annoying in both animes. Very catty, those 'popular' girls.
Morisato Keiichi has always had bad luck. No matter what he does or how he acts, nothing seems to go his way. His bike frequently breaks down, his classmates take advantage of him, women ignore and scorn him, and on top of all that, he’s only 5'3". In Heaven, when someone’s bad luck and good luck are so heavily out of balance, Belldandy (Goddess First Class, Second Category, Unlimited) of the Goddess Assistance Agency comes to the rescue. Belldandy grants Keiichi one wish to make up for all of his bad luck, but when Keiichi wishes for Belldandy to stay by his side forever... the trouble begins. Can Keiichi keep Belldandy by his side, or will outside elements force her to return to heaven?
Take a normal boy and put him in an extraordinary circumstance and you have a recipe for a great anime. If you like comedy, drama, and romance then Ah My Goddess TV and Chobits are right up your alley.
Due to an extraordinary event a boy and a girl meet; however, it soon becomes clear that his life henceforth won't be all roses and sunshine. In both Ah My Goddess and Chobits the guy is really shy; this makes it hard for him to advance this possible romance. This of course leads to various humorous situations. That's not all there is to the story though, as there are several forces trying to stop the romance at all costs!
AMG TV is another love story, like Chobits, where a boy unintentionally ends up living with a girl who has mysterious powers. They both must work hard to get to know each other more, and protect their relationship.
Both series deal well with 'alternate' women living in their home. The script is well written and even though there maybe the odd moment of 'cringness', it makes the anime even greater to watch.
Both anime work well with the English or Japanese dub, you can't go wrong watching these.
Both series center around an average guy who has a chance with a chic who is super-human. Both have thier cute and funny moments with a little innuendo. Although Ah! My Goddess doens't have as many plot-twists and surprises, I think it's equally as good as Chobits.
Both animes are shoujo shows with a great sense of humor, cute stories, and a lot of heart. While Chobits is a bit more sexual and perverted in its humor, they both show that side of love that we all watch shoujo for: that love knows has no limits (literally) and nothing can interfere with true love.
good solid bit of humor in both tied in with an at times akward romance that leave you laughing. Both animes feature an at times dorky guy getting lucky with a beautiful girl.
The recommendation reasons are rather obvious for these two romantic comedies. Already the main setting boasts with similarities, both including a male main character who suddenly meets a not-so-normal woman who is quite oblivious to many things in this world. Together they experience a lot of new while learning things from each other and, slowly but surely, their relationship starts developing in more than one way.
If you enjoyed the way Chobits approaches the relationship between the main characters, there's a good chance you'll like Ah! My Goddess as well.
Ah! My Goddess and Chobits are two of my favorite series. While Chobits is quite a bit more fanservice laden, both series are very alike in most other ways and are good matches. If you like one, safe bet is you like the other.
Chobits and Ah! My Goddess both deal with a clueless, yet caring male character who, for one reason or another, gets to live with a girl in his house. Both shows have plenty of comedy thrown into the lighthearted romance story. While both shows also show the problems the couples run in to, they never stretch these arcs out too long, maintaining a light feeling during the entire watch.
Both series are similar and watchable without feeling like one has ripped the other off plot-wise.
In both series, a teenage guy stumbles into the awkward situation of discovering their perfect girl, and is somehow obligated to live with said girl... who also turns out to be not entirely human.
Chobits takes a bit of a sci-fi path, while Ah! My Goddess has strong fantasy undertones. I believe viewers of either will enjoy the other, but be warned - Chobits is very much Ah! My Goddess's older perverted brother.
A down on his luck, unpopular, college age male is thrust into a situation where he "obtains" a beautiful one of a kind female who will do just about whatever he wants them too. Romantic comedies with out of this world females and under average males. If you liked one you're sure to like the other.
Chobits and Ah! My Goddess are similar in setting as well as characters. The differences are mostly angels and androids, as well as were the 'unbelievable' factor that splits it from being set in the real world. The 'unbelievable' fact for Ah! My Goddess is the fact that he accidentally called an angel, while the 'unbelievable' factor of Chobits is that so many girls could be interested in an average kid in community college who works at a bar.
The main character of each are practically identical, both in looks and personality. Standard, plain male character who is basic enough for any male veiwer to relate to.
The main girls of each end up moving in with the main male without much choice — in Ah! My Goddess, it's Belldandy's job, and in Chobits, he picks her body up off of the street. While living with them they grow to act like the main lucky dude's wife, and through acting that position, they fall in love with the main male.
There are obstacles each must overcome in relation to the difference in their 'species.' Keiichi has problems (mostly in the form of other angels) to overcome with Belldandy about her being an angel, and Hideki has societial problems about dating a machine to overcome in Chobits.
Both are hilarious, and if you like one, you're pretty much garunteed to like the other. Unless the selling point was androids or angels. But if you're looking for the general feel of the anime and the character relations, then you should give the other a shot.
Both series feature a relationship between a human guy and non-human girl that has strong platonic feel to it and in which the girl's love is (nearly) unconditional. Ah! My Goddess TV is very light on fanservice, while Chobits has quite a bit of it, on the other hand Chobits has more story going on, while Ah! My Goddess TV is rather episodic.
