When computers start to look like humans, can love remain the same?

Hideki Motosuwa is a young country boy who is studying hard to get into college. Coming from a poor background, he can barely afford the expenses, let alone the newest fad: Persocoms, personal computers that look exactly like human beings. One evening while walking home, he finds an abandoned Persocom. After taking her home and managing to activate her, she seems to be defective, as she can only say one word, "Chii," which eventually becomes her name. Unlike other Persocoms, however, Chii cannot download information onto her hard drive, so Hideki decides to teach her about the world the old-fashioned way, while studying for his college entrance exams at the same time.

Along with his friends, Hideki tries to unravel the mystery of Chii, who may be a "Chobit," an urban legend about special units that have real human emotions and thoughts, and love toward their owner. But can romance flourish between a Persocom and a human?

Probably one of the best written pieces of fluff anime out there. Characters are super easy to like, the adult moments are relatively tame compared to other anime of the same genre, and the main character isn't as shallow as most male protagonists of this era were. I recommend at least one run through if you find it interesting.

      So it looks like the US Army guys at Edgewood are saying that by 2050 cyborgs will likely be a real thing, both on the battlefield and in the general population.  Sounds like a GitS world isn't that far off.

      I'm new on this forum and on forums in general. So I wanted to ask a question about my favourite anime and see hear someone else's opinions.

      I just noticed that the Humble store is currently selling a light novel/book bundle with a bunch of Kodansha's "Monogatari" stuff by Nisio Ishin (aka "NisiOisiN").  If you're a Bake/Nise/Etc fan you might want to check it out.
       
      (Not sure if this is quite the right category for this topic but I didn't see a light-novel category sooo... <plunk>)

      Hey all! You guys seem like wizards on here with how well you can find obscure anime. Here’s a tough one though.
      A few years ago, I remember watching a anime set sometime in the future. I don’t remember much and what I do remember is a bit hazy so take that with a grain of salt.
      I remember it was about a normal dud that finds an escaped girl with green hair. I think she might’ve been a Martian or something... but she was definitely not normal. I can’t remember much else besides a scene where they get almost intimate and that she lives in his closet... maybe. Again it’s super hazy. Also for some reason “melon bread” keeps jumping out at me.
      to whittle down the selection, it wasn’t Code Geass or Elfen Lied.

      I don’t really expect anyone to know and I’m definitely not much help with the details but any leads would be super useful. Thanks!
