There is not much novel in the boy-meets-robot plot, but the standard theme is so well done it seems completely fresh. This volume includes a video game sequence, one of those "fantasies inside an anime" that is often a sign that the authors are running low on plot material. But, wonder of wonders, they pull it off, making it both funny and advancing the overall story line. The series is still going strong with the third volume. Read More

The first 2 volumes of "Chobits" were spent introducing characters, the idea of Chobits as a legendary free will Persocon series, & giving time for Chi to learn basic interaction and living skills. "Darkness Descends" is the first volume to begin fleshing out characters and creating more tension around the rumor that Chi may be a Chobits. Read More

Product Overview

Hideki, beside himself with joy as he prepares for his first date with Yumi, fails to notice Chi’s reactions. However, he runs into Minoru who reveals an interesting aspect about the mythical Chobits- urban-myth persocoms that possess free will! Yet, who has time for deep thought when rumors say someone was murdered in the apartment downstairs- Chi definitely hears something strange below them! Finally, with some time for rest and relaxation, Hideki borrows a game machine and enters a virtual reality world with Shinbo, Sumomo and Chi, but where does Chi go?!

The DVD will contain four bilingual episodes (English & Japanese) on a DVD9 with two English subtitle streams (Dialogue translation & Signs Only translation), art gallery and Pioneer Trailers. Created by CLAMP (X, Cardcaptor Sakura, Rayearth), Animated by Madhouse (X, Trigun, Ninja Scroll, Patlabor WXIII), and English Dialog by Bang Zoom Entertainment (Vandread, X, Mahoromatic).

Editors Note
Note When Hideki moves from Hokkaido to Tokyo to attend college, he quickly finds that big city life is much different than he imagined. The widespread use of Persocoms (personal computers designed to look and act like animals or humans) especially astounds him and makes him feel slightly inferior since Hideki cannot afford one. However, when he finds a discarded Persocom in the trash named Chi, Hideki sets about fixing up only to find that she can somehow operate without an OS, forcing Hideki to wonder if she is, in fact, real. In these episodes, Hideki prepares for a date with with Yumi without noticing Chi's distressed behavior leading up to the outing. Later, rumors that someone has been murdered on the floor below excite Chi's imagination.
