If you think you need more fan service from a robot-woman you can find it in hand maid may. Althought this robot its very different to Chi she's always getting into funny situations. The music its great, specially the intro song -Jump meippai dakishimete-. It has a great plot too, but it has some holes that doesnt get explained not even at the end of the series. As far as i know its 10 episodes long, so as you can see is a little short. And theres 1 more episode but its more like a spin off. If you are more into the cuteness of Chobits, you should probably not watch this, but if you want service go ahead. The plot its about how humans should have someone to be with and never be alone.
Same sort of harem romance style with some sci-fi, too, if you liked that aspect of Chobits. Not quite as good, but it's not long, so it's a fun thing to watch anyway.
The same basic idea as in Chobits. Teenage guy finds a robot of some kind and...well, you know the rest if you've watched Chobits.
May is fairly similar in function to chi (as a sort of home apliance, and not a retired android of death as is mahoro), but she does have a knowledge base, albeit a rather servile one, which gives this series a slightly different feel. The production values arent really as high as with chobits and it shows, the animation and plot both being a little on the b side of things... I always thought may looks just a little off, and all the "throw in" characters that appear seems a little contrived to me. however, if your on a chobits fix (as is known to happen) check this out, as it may ease the withdrawal
Shy guy learning lessons about life and love from a robot. With chobits it's a lot harer going seeing as though Chii (the female robot) has no knowledge and both main characters struggle through the story learning for themselves. Whereas in Hand Maid May, May is actually knowledgable.
a cyberdoll.... that's the name for the robot girls in this series. If feel like you haven't gotten enough of small cute computer girls and a weird guy thinking his life will be fixed just because of a computer. This is the one for you. Hand Maid May is truly a really cute series with a cute lovestory. And I'm really sure if you liked Chobits you gonna like this one too.
have the same sort of ecchi feeling, boy with cute computer girl sort of thing ;)
The ever-popular theme of human male/android female interaction is explored in both Chobits and Hand Maid May. The cute character designs and endearing naivety of the main characters leads to funny and bittersweet situations. If you've seen one, I highly recommend the other.
If you liked Chobits for its exploration of racism and how genders treat each other, you may like Hand Maid May, if you like how someone with a good heart makes a decision about wether to look at something or someone differently just because they are different in some way, in both of these cases, robots. Then i am sure you will like this anime. If you are willing to look at an anime for more then the comedy and explore deeper these concepts. This should be the next series on your list.
Both Chobits and Hand Maid May are romantic comedies dealing with cyberdolls/persocons and college boys. Hand Maid May is a bit more comedy oriented that Chobits, however.
Both of these series have a main character who comes across a mechanical counterpart of some sort and must deal with his overbearing puberty to overcome his underlying fear of women, and learn the lessons of love.

Very lucky boys come across or find androids that help out in their daily lives. With romantic feelings brewing between man and machine, lots of humor and a little bit of ecchi are surely involved. If you liked one check out the other.


Both these romantic comedies involve college students who, by accident, ended up living with female robots. They have to teach the robots about the world, live with them, and even learn lessons from the robots. And of course, both have ecchi and romance.


Both of these hilarious comedies have a somewhat naiive college student coming in contact and eventually living with a robot. Both have quite a few ecchi moments but also have a romantic feel to them, complete with the bittersweet moments. At the same time, both make you ponder some deep issues.

If you liked one, the other is a great choice!

Sora no Otoshimono

Sora no Otoshimono

Ever since Tomoki was a boy, he’s dreamed that the girl he loves vanishes into the sky. However, while he’s convinced it’s just a dream, his classmate Sugata is convinced that it’s related to an alleged ‘new continent’ that’s floating around the planet. According to Sugata’s calculations it’s set to pass above their town at midnight, and sends Tomoki to check it out. Little did Tomoki know that at that moment, a scantily-clad angel would fall from the sky! Calling herself a pet-class Angeloid named Ikaros, she promises to fulfill Tomoki’s every wish. Now, Tomoki is able to manipulate panties and do equally as perverted things with ease; but what is Ikaros really here for, and are her motives as pure as they seem?

While Chobits is a little less ecchi than Sora, both involve a non-human girl becoming the plaything of a perverted boy. Plenty of wacky shenanigans are in store for both casts, and both also have darkness behind the scenes that isn't revealed till later.


both Chobits and Sora no Otoshimono are centered on a non-human being becoming the toy of a perverted boy. Both animes have a dark side behind and also both of them exceed in terms of ecchi aspects (Chobits is abit more decent than Sora no Otoshimono). If you liked one of this shows then for sure you will like the other one as well.


Strange robotic girls + normal, perverted teenager=ecchi and comedy. Although Chobits is more seroius than Sora No Otoshimono and a bit less perverted. I found both equally fun to watch I would really recommend them both ways.


Both have one pervert than find one cute girl and finally of the story found her secret. Sora no Otoshimono have more ecchi than Chobits, but they are comedy and very funny. I recommend both.



Both are about a guy who finds a non-human girl that changes his life making it more interesting. Both girl characters are seemingly emotionless, doe-eyed characters and know nothing about the world. Though they seem emotionless they care alot for their master and it builds on them showing emotion later. There are similar circumstances and focus alot on panties.


These series both follow a male getting very close to a non-human who happens to be very innocent, but with a large mystery behind her. Sora is a lot more ecchi throughout, but they both have a large mystery playing out in the background.


It both about android-girls, which have no emotions and don't know anything about world around them. Besides, both of heroines have some mystery in their past


Main character lives with a none-human female. The setting and such are quite different, though the enjoyment factor is about the same. Plus there's the ecchi moments you'd expect from such shows, because of the circumstances that are brought up.


It is the bit of sci-fi we love with the romance and comedy we searc for. Both are have these amazing traits to them with the addition of school life and some slice of life.


Persocoms(Chobits) and Angeloids(Sora no Otoshimono) are very similar in appearance. They both are made to serve their master. Main characters from both animes (Ikaros and Chii) are very similar. They both lack emotions, common sense and both male protagonists tries to teach them those things they lack. It's just that Angeloids seems to be more developed and are more human than Persocoms, as they each have their own personality. Tomoki (SnO) is a huge pervert at all times and shows it, whilst Hideki (Chobits) is less of a pervert, and most of the times keeps it to himself. If you liked one of these, you'll definitely like the other one.


Chobits and Sora no Otoshimono are both comedy anime with romance between a human boy and robot girls. Both contain ecchi fanservice as well. Both also have a bit of a darker story to them.


Both series focus on an android being found by a perverted teenager as they perform innocent and adorable actions without knowing what they are actually doing, while they both fall in love with their respective owners. Chobits focuses more on the romance aspect, while SnO focuses more on the ecchi/comedy.

Eve no Jikan

Eve no Jikan

In the future, androids live side by side with humans – but not as their equals, as their slaves. Though they look identical, these androids must display a holographic ring over their heads so the difference is clear. One day, a boy named Rikuo finds abnormal activity patterns in the logs of his own android, and alongside his friend Masaki, he sets forth to find where the android has been. Much to their surprise, the duo discovers a secret café known as Eve no Jikan with a single rule: within its walls, there must be no discrimination between humans and robots. In this place, androids appear to be human and are even displaying signs of independence – a trait that should not be possible. Rikou finds his perceptions increasingly challenged as he struggles to come to terms with his own android, and the relationship between man and machines...

They are both about androids living among humans, and the relationship between them. In both series androids have distinguishing marks.


Both of these series deal with the subject matter of androids and their place amongst humans. Chobits is more light-hearted, but both series explore the bonds that can exist between humans and machines. 


Time of Eve is another very sweet anime about cyborg/human relations.  Many of the themes covered in one is covered as well in the other.  There's no love interest for the main characters in Eve, but much of the rest would fit well in either series.  Definitely recommended. it


Both of these shows are making a statement about how our world is so dependent on machines. They show that what many people fear, the machines gaining a brain, could beome a reality. Unlike the Terminators movies where the robots are evil and want to take over the world, these robots just want to live and love like humans. The shows both also can be taken as a metaphor for racism, though Time of Eve is more so.


These series both have android/computer controlled robots all around the world. If you find that aspect, or some of the moral reprocussions which that would cause being disected, then these series go well together.


Both Eve no Jikan and Chobits deal with human x AI (or more exactly android) relationships. Eve no Jikan is more serious, on the other hand Chobits has some comedy and fanservice in it. None the less, if you thought one of those was interesting, than you should give the other one a try.

P.S. You might want to watch Eve no Jikan movie instead of the series.


why? Well they both have robots and i say you should see the diffrent point of views. In chobits it perfectly alright to be friendly with your robot but in Time of Eve it's looked down upon. Just give it a try, it's a short anime anyway.



A must see, if you liked Chobits. It is somehow i guess more deep than Chobits. The only bad thing about it is the small number of episodes and the story not ending at all.


 In both series, the question of "Can a machine truly be human?" arises. While Chobits' is not directly aimed at this kind of idea (it is much more light heared and romantic), it does come in to question. Both also contain the "anti-robot" groups who are leery of machines becoming more 'human'. In all, they are both well thought out, highly intuitive series that make the viewer make their own thoughts and/or conclusions about the questions made.


When it comes to the controversy of the difference between man and machine, both anime deal with the topic in different ways. Eve no Jikan, in my opinion, does it better with its maturity and heavier scenes.

She cooks, she cleans, and is a lethal fighting machine. Mahoromatic, former Vesper battle android, has chosen to give up her weapons, extending her remaining life from 37 to 398 days. As Misato Suguru's maid, she fights battles of another sort, fending off an amorous teacher on one hand, ecchi magazines on the other. Can Mahoro save Suguru's innocence?

I watched Mahoromatic after I watched Chobits and I found them quite alike. Both of them are abit ecchi but in a really funny way. Mahoromatic also tells the story about a girl that comes to the human world and doesn't know anything more than how to fight. But she becomes the house maid at Suguru-san's house and it reminds us alot of how Chii helped Hideki. If you liked Chobits you gonna love Mahoromatic.
A cute and sexy robot (or android in the case of Mahoro) comes to live with the young suguru... While i think that i found hideki a more interesting character (the pantsu incident) the fact remains that mahoro is my favorite of the two... sorry chi... she is still cute, but not quite so creepy cute. The comedy also just gets better going to mahoromatic (although, like i said, the whole pantsu incident cant be overrated) NB Mahoromatic is a tad bit more ecchi than chobits... so if you dont like :P ...
While Mahoromatic has a strong combat edge, it's not all that different from Chobits in that the human/android interaction leads to some hilarious if sometimes depressing situations. Touching and intriguing, both series are fan-favorites for more than just the ecchi humor.
Both Chobits and Mahoromatic is about human boys and their relationships to one or several android grils. Both include the classical types of character and ecchi comedy. Chobits is a bit more on the sweet side and Mahoromatic a bit more actionfilled.
Only one word can full express my fealings for this Chobits and Mahoromatic Animes.. KAWAII!!! These respective animes are of extreamlly good quality, in artwork, sound, and story. They also have a similer manner of how the story is portrayed. A cute robot/cyborg girl falls for a guy and or vise versa. However, this is why I like the series, its not all romance! There are episodes of violience, betrayal and well fighting. All together it makes for a easy watching anime that doest bore you, or get tired of.

Mahoromatic is like Chobits in that both of the 'lead' females are robots/cyborgs, and they both develop a romance with the male lead. Mahoromatic has quite a few funny moments in it. Both anime are incredibly similar


Both Chobits and Mahoromatic are based around robots and a "love story" to an extent. There's plenty of action to keep the guys interested and the love aspect to keep the girls interested. Plenty of jokes and perverse little in-jokes are in the anime, and can always bring a smile to your face.


Both romantic/comedies that test the boundaries of love between man and machine; while, of course, tossing in plenty of comedy in between. Highly recommend both series and the compliment each other very well.


I watched Chobits before Mahoromatic and found the story to not be far off. A boy who's pretty much alone has a non-human girl come into his life and cause alot of trouble.

  They both contain plenty of giggles, and alot of sexual references. I think Chii and Mahoro are very naive about actual human nature in the same way which makes for some hilarious anime.

If you like either of these i'm pretty sure you'd enjoy the other.


While Chobits does not have the fighting aspect that you will see in Mahoromatic, it makes up for it with the romance, ecchi, and comedy. Both series involve a female android with a mysterious past that slowly come's back to haunt them. If you liked Mahoromatic or Chobits, I Strongly reccomend you watch the other.

Magical, comedy romance just about sums both of these series up. You'll want to watch them for different reasons, Fruits Basket being a lot more endearing than Chobits. But both enjoyable.

Both are very cute and have some fantastic moments. Chobits has very humane androids and Fruits Basket has a cursed family line who will transform into animals when being hugged by the opposite sex. Love, friendship and emotions are both very strong and important elements for both Chobits and Fruits Basket and I ensure you, if you liked one, you will with a high probability also like the other.


Fruits Basket and Chobits have the same kind of funny, memorable characters in them. The plots of both stories take interesting twists and turns as the anime progress. They both incorporate love, humor, and strong emotions throughout their plotlines. If you enjoyed one of them, chances are you'll have a good time watching the other.


Both plots seem to take on interesting variations as the anime progress; they have unforgettable characters and a flair for comedic moments. Fruits Basket is a more ‘cute' type of anime whereas Chobits has a little more of an ecchi quality about it, but they are both very endearing.


They are both love comedys. Both have a perverted sence of humor. Chobits has a great ending, where as Fruits Basket kind of gave room to make more episodes.


Chobits and Fruits Basket are both very cute and funny stories of romance with a twist. In Chobits the female lead is a robot and in Fruits Basket many of the characters are cursed. Both these situations cause the characters to worry if they can ever be truly accepted by the world around them. However even on this slightly dark note the shows manage to stay light and funny.


Alot of comedy, tons of romance, and magical encounters. this about sums up the series. Such cute charectors, adorable animation, and fun plots. Both animes are cool and entertaining to watch!


Both Fruits Basket and Chobits are about young protagonists that stumble upon a very special person. Their significant other is part of an interesting plot-twist, and they are surrounded by interesting characters with interweaving storylines. Both anime involve a mix of romance and humor, and involve "chibi" storylines that are adorable. 


They're by no means the same but Fruits Basket and Chobits have a few common themes running through them. They both have romance running through them, and they're both fairly good animes if you like mushy, innocent romance.

Both of them have a similar sense of humour - jokes about boys feeling awkward around members of the opposite sex seem to be a major source of comedy in both of these series, albeit for different reasons.
