Nineteen-year-old ronin Hideki Motosuwa desires two things more than anything else: a girlfriend, and an expensive humanoid computer (known as a 'persocom'). But with his dead-end job and no financial aid from his parents, owning a persocom seems impossible... until he finds a blond-haired female persocom tied up amongst a pile of trash! After getting her home and figuring out how to activate her, even the computer-illiterate Hideki realizes there is something unusual when it appears she can only say one word - Chii. Is she just broken, or is there more to this persocom than her behavior lets on?
Both manga focus on a young guy who lives in a time when realistic human-like androids are common household appliances, and stumbles onto such an adroid which was apprarently thrown away. In each case the guy takes the free android and begins using it, but these discarded androids give indications of being something far more than the standard model.
In Victorian England it is commonplace for the rich and wealthy to have a staff, led by a head butler, to run their households; the Phantomhive Estate is no different. The young and demanding Count Ciel Phantomhive, child owner of a toy company, lives in the grand countryside manor. Sebastian is his head butler, and the epitome of perfection; he effortlessly and gracefully completes his day-to day chores and fixes the countless mistakes of the other employees. However, whilst on the outside all seems prim and proper, a more sinister secret lies just beneath the surface. Sebastian is in fact a demon bound by a contract with the young count; he will loyally serve and fight for him in return for his soul.
If you like Chobits or Black Butler, your bound to like the other one.
Both involve careing characters, with a touch of mystery, comedy and tons of other aspects that tie the manga together to make the manga intrigueing and interesting.
In a futuristic world, the government seeks to control humans with unique powers who are called ‘Clovers'. Each Clover has a different power level identified by a tattoo which ranges from one to four. Kazuhiko is a former soldier turned private eye and he is tasked with transporting Sue, the only ‘Four Leaf Clover' in existence, to Fairy Park. Over the course of their journey he discovers more about Sue and the powers the Clovers contain.
CLAMP's manga are pretty distinctive, and Clover and Chobits are no exception. Both are soft sci-fi stories about naive young (or just young-looking) girls with some crazy mystery power that they can't control meeting and loving a man. As in all CLAMP series, the artwork in each is gorgeous, and major themes include the ever popular "love is blind" and "love will conquer all".
In the near future, some girls are born mutated. Known as Diclonius, this new species is believed to have been chosen by God to wipe out mankind. Unlike regular humans, Diclonius have two horns on their head and ‘vectors' - invisible ‘hands.' Contained within a research facility unknown to the world, the Diclonius are experimented upon mercilessly; many die or develop a hate for mankind. One such creature, Lucy, is said to be the first of the Diclonius. She escapes from the facility, but while fleeing she takes a bullet to the head and is seemingly killed. However, it seems Lucy isn't quite dead yet; she's instead developed an alternate personality called Nyuu. She's washed up on a shore where two people, Kouta and Yuka, find her and bring her home, unaware that such a monster still lurks within Nyuu.
At first these two seem to have nothing in common but Inuyasha and Cardcaptor Sakura are very similar.
Both Sakura and InuYasha have lost their mothers while Kagome and Li seem to have no fathers.
These series contain light humor, some romantic triangles, slapstick, action, and definitely adventure.
Both InuYasha and Cardcaptor Sakura are about a young and fairly normal girl who finds herself suddenly caught up in the unbelievable world of magic and curses. Both stories focus on the magic/curses, the girl's struggles to cope, both with the change and her sudden new abilities, and the love that inevitably blooms from it all.
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.
If you found yourself fascinated by Chii, that is, a non-human, super innocent girl who is capable of unconditional love, you ought to give Fairial Garden a try. Not only does it feature such character, but it's also way more cute and ecchi free.
