Day 22 - A pairing you hate and no one else understands why?


Photobucket

Chii and Hideki, Chobits



Sorry. I can't get past the fact that she's a robot. It's creepy and gross. Robots aren't people.

I guess part of it is my fault for expecting something different than what the story delivered. I thought it was going to be a story about how our overreliance on computers is damaging our ability to have functional interpersonal relationships, and designing computers to look like people was illustrating the danger of replacing something real with something artificial.

But, alas.



I was so much younger then. This is where my severe disappointment with CLAMP began. I don't even bother with them anymore.

Funny. Lots of people though Chobits was the last good thing CLAMP came up with. I personally was kind of indifferent. Just goes to show you how everyone's tastes are different.

Well, it was. I liked the characters a lot. I just hated the ending.

I think I liked the idea of Chobits more than I actually liked it in reality. I liked the characters, but I agree with you about the ending. There was a lot of hit and miss for me with that series.

I still like some of CLAMP's post-chobit's stuff. Like TRC and xxxholic. The one thing that I love about CLAMP is that there is a lot of variety with their works. I think my fave will always be CCS though. And MKR.

Yeah, that was me. It could've been a lot better than what it was.

Other than CCS and Chobits, though, I never could get into any other CLAMP series. I tried a lot of them. I guess I kinda liked Wish, but it didn't stick with me, and I couldn't tell you what happened.
