10. Mahoromatic: Automatic Maiden

Mahoromatic Automatic MaidenSynopsis – Vesper is a secret agency fighting an army of alien invaders by using super-powerful battle androids. Mahoro is Vesper’s most powerful battle android and has won many battles, but she has little operating time left and soon will cease to function. However, if she lays down her arms and conserves her remaining power, the time she has left can be prolonged to just over a year. Mahoro is given an opportunity to live the remaining time she has as a normal human. She chooses to live as a maid for Suguru, a phenomenally messy middle school student who lives by himself after his family passed away.

Similarity – It’s worth noting that one of the driving elements of this series is that Mahoro, the main female character, is actually going to die…in 390 days from the first day you’re introduced to her. There’s actually a countdown showing how much time she has left at the end of every episode, and it’s a very powerful tool in intensifying your desire to see the main characters realize their feelings for each other. In the end, I think you’ll find the show to be just as charming and entertaining as Chobits, and Mahoro to be just as endearing as Chii.

9. Bunny Drop (Usagi Drop)

Bunny Drop (Usagi Drop)Synopsis – Usagi Drop is the story of Daikichi’s journey through fatherhood as he raises Rin with his gentle and affectionate nature, as well as an exploration of the warmth and interdependence that are at the heart of a happy, close-knit family. The shy and unapproachable girl is deemed an embarrassment to the family, and finds herself ostracized by her father’s relatives, all of them refusing to take care of her in the wake of his death. Daikichi, angered by their coldness towards Rin, announces that he will take her in—despite the fact that he is a young, single man with no prior childcare experience.

Similarity – The two anime’s are almost identical, except for the female protagonists.
– Both male protagonists go out of their way to protect the female.
– Both male protagonists are very much older than the female.
– Both female protagonists are curious and have yet to know about the world.
I will guarantee, that you will not be let down.

8. Kowarekake no Orgol, Half-Broken Music Box

Kowarekake no Orgol, Half-Broken Music BoxSynopsis- In 2039, helper androids are widespread as general purpose electronics. Keiichiro lost his family in a traffic accident and retired from his band. One day, he finds an android of an old model in a garbage dump. He takes her home, but after taking her to a repair shop he was told that she couldn’t be repaired, so he plans to throw her away. The next day, Keiichiro finds her making breakfast for him. Thus begin the summer days of an android with no memories and a dreamless boy.

Similarity – In Chobits, the main male character finds a persocom that has been thrown away. Similarly in Kowarekake no Orgel, there is a male character who finds an android that looks like a human. The persocom and the android are child-like so the male characters watch over them with care.

7. Fruits Basket

Fruits BasketSynopsis – After the accident in which she lost her mother, 16-year-old Tooru moves in with her grandfather, but due to his home being renovated, is unable to continue living with him. One night on her way back from work, she finds her tent buried underneath a landslide. Yuki Souma, the “prince” of her school, and his cousin Shigure Souma, a famous author, stumble across Tooru’s situation and invite her to stay with them until her grandfather’s home renovations are complete. Upon arriving at the Souma house, Tooru discovers their secret: if a Souma is hugged by someone of the opposite gender, they temporarily transform into one of the animals of the zodiac! However, this strange phenomenon is no laughing matter; rather, it is a terrible curse that holds a dark history.

Similarity – Has an overall good feel, though does delve into dark and mysterious pasts and scenes to give a deeper story that makes you wonder if there’s more than meets the eye. Fruits basket is a cute comedy romance story, and I liken it to Chobits due to its humor. It’s a bit less sexually crude, but with a bit more cursing, but I’d suggest trying it out!

6. Elfen Lied

Elfen LiedSynopsis – The Diclonius, a mutated homo sapien that is said to be selected by God and will eventually become the destruction of mankind, possesses two horns in their heads, and has a “sixth sense” which gives it telekinetic abilities. Due to this dangerous power, they have been captured and isolated in laboratories by the government. Lucy, a young and psychotic Diclonius, manages to break free of her confines and brutally murder most of the guards in the laboratory, only to get shot in the head as she makes her escape. She survives and manages to drift along to a beach, where two teenagers named Kouta and Yuka discovers her. Having lost her memories, she was named after the only thing that she can now say, “Nyuu,” and the two allow her to stay at Kouta’s home. However, it appears that the evil “Lucy” is not dead just yet…

Similarity – Both are about finding a girl with no memory but both have hidden powers that awaken sporaticly in the story. Both girls could only say their names in the begining and have cute ears/horns. Both have ecchi. 😀 Only difference is Chobits is more of a romace and Elfen Led is full of violence and gore.

5. Kobato.

kobatoSynopsis – Sweet and naïve Hanato Kobato came to Earth on a mission to collect and fill a bottle with “konpeito,” which appear after healing a person’s heart that is suffering. Kobato collects these because it is her wish to go to a certain place. Despite her strangeness, Kobato turns out to be well-suited for this mission as her heartfelt sincerity in helping others earns her the love and admiration of everyone she meets. However, she is not allowed to fall in love with anyone whose heart she heals.

Similarity – Kobato and Chobits have many things in commen. Kobato feels like a sequal to Chobits because of its cross overs, just like all the other Clamp titles. They both have a main female character who is “new” to the human world. They both contain heart warming stories. Comedy, drama and a ltitle bit of romance. Kobato and Chobits are great, and are also made by the same author – Clamp!

4. DearS

DearSSynopsis – One year ago, a UFO containing 150 aliens crash-landed off the shores of Kasai. Because no one could fix their ship, the Japanese Government decided to bestow upon them the designation “DearS” and make them into Japanese citizens, teaching them the language, customs, and culture of Japan. However, in order for them to become more familiar with human society, a home-stay program has been enacted to allow them to mingle with other humans.

Similarity – Exact same storylines. However, there are some quirks that are different between them: Ren is an Alien in DearS, while Chi is a Robot (Cyborg of sorts) in Chobits. There are other little differences that you’ll notice when comparing them, but there’s no doubt.. if you liked one of these, you’ll definitely like the other.

3. Hal

halSynopsis – Kurumi is a beautiful young woman whose beloved boyfriend, Hal, died in a sudden airplane accident. Left heartbroken and gloomy, she isolates herself in a small house. But this soon comes to change when her grandfather requests the help of a humanoid robot named Q01. Taking on the appearance of Hal, Q01 is sent to Kurumi’s house in order to save her from her state of despair. As Hal returns day after day and increases his efforts, Kurumi, despite her initial reluctance, slowly begins to open up to him and break free from her depression. But there is more to Hal than meets the eye, and these two will soon learn an unexpected truth about this relationship between a human and an android.

Similarity – HAL and Chobits focus on a relationship unfolding between a human and an android. They both have heartwarming and sweet moments, and the events that occur throughout will keep you on the edge of the seat. I find it charming how both HAL and Chobits managed to add a realistic touch to the animations by featuring hardships the protagonists must go through in pursuit of happiness because – we all aware that a relationship between a human and a machine is complicated and can’t be quite ‘perfect’.

2. Heaven’s Lost Property (Sora no Otoshimono)

Heaven's Lost Property (Sora no Otoshimono)Synopsis – Ever since he was a child, Tomoki Sakurai has always woke up with tears after a dream of an angel. His childhood friend Sohara Mitsuki worries about this and decides to seek the help of Eishirou Sugata, an eccentric sky maniac. He concludes that Tomoki’s dream is undoubtedly connected to what is known as the New World, a floating anomaly that scientists have failed to understand. Recruiting the New World Discovery Club’s first members, Eishirou schedules a time to meet up in order to observe the mystery in the sky. That day, Tomoki’s peaceful life is changed forever when a strange girl falls from the sky and begins to call him master.

Similarity – Both are about a guy who finds a non-human girl that changes his life making it more interesting. Both girl characters are seemingly emotionless, doe-eyed characters and know nothing about the world. Though they seem emotionless they care alot for their master and it builds on them showing emotion later. There are similar circumstances and focus alot on panties.

1. Plastic Memories

Plastic MemoriesSynopsis – Eighteen-year-old Tsukasa Mizugaki has failed his college entrance exams, but after pulling some strings, he manages to land a job at the Sion Artificial Intelligence Corporation. SAI Corp is responsible for the creation of “Giftias”—highly advanced androids which are almost indiscernible from normal humans. However, unlike humans, Giftias have a maximum lifespan of 81,920 hours, or around nine years and four months. Terminal Service One, the station Tsukasa was assigned to, is responsible for collecting Giftias that have met their expiration date, before they lose their memories and become hostile.

Similarity – ‘Plastic Memories’ and ‘Chobits’ delivers an emotional level of bonding between humans and androids that are designed to feel almost human. In the midst of it all, the lovely musics certainly did not damper the standard of the show. Touching moments are undeniably hard to ward off as it shows us what it means to have something so precious and alive being taken away from you whether by willingness or brute force. The character emotion and comedy scenes blend well with the overall dynamic of the world and you can’t helped but to laugh and cry with the characters when an opportunity arises
