Fridge Brilliance:

  • Chi can only say "chi" at the beginning because that's the first syllable of her mother's name, Chitose Hibiya.

Fridge Horror:

This is supposed to be an innocent romantic comedy, but there's a lot to be scared of if one thinks about it too long.

  • Chii, who has the emotional capacity of a small child, is led, by a "friendly" stranger to a stage set up for filming porn. The guy tries to get her to perform sex acts, on camera, and the guy has a great deal of experience doing this with Persocoms, that he tricked away from their owners.

  • Chii's "reset" button is set up in her genitals, she wants to have sex with Hideki, often throwing herself at him, and can't understand why he turns her down.
  • Any persocom that gets connected to Chii, even for diagnostics, overloads, and either shuts down or self-destructs. It took a network of dozens of persocoms in the anime to run a simple routine exam, and they all went into blue-screen in the process.
  • Persocoms have to have their memories routinely moved to external storage because when their internal memory reaches capacity, their OS corrupts and they break down, permanently.
  • The anime's ending where all persocoms get true human-level AI sounds all heart-warming, but... Chii just basically created an entire Slave Race.
  • The story starts with Hideki finding Chii in the neighbor's trash. This means he adopted an abandoned child who goes on to want to have sex with him.

How well does it match the trope?
