'''''Chobits''''' is a manga and anime series by Creator/{{CLAMP}} that starts out as a MagicalGirlfriend comedy and transitions to a ContemplateOurNavels debate on the relationship between humans and Persocoms, machines programmed to serve humans (and look human too). It takes place some years after ''Anime/KidouTenshiAngelicLayer'', although the only [[CanonImmigrant canon immigrants]] are of the "dead with an impact" variety.
