    Tokyopop bastardized Chobits. I enjoyed the fan translation better. Least they got the names of the characters right, I mean, Tokyopop name Sumomo "Plumb", WTF?

    It was this reason and this reason alone that I haven't bought the remaining books (I own the first 3).

    I don't understand what you are talking about. But I think Tokyopop did a pretty good job with this manga. It's plot is all right, and the characters are expressed in an excellent manner. I look forward to watching the anime.

    The fan translation was a better read, and Tokyopop fumbled with the names.

    >.> you know, that's a really lame reason to not buy the rest of the books. The translation was good, it kept to the heart of the what the creators wanted. So what if the names are different? if you want the real names so bad, than watch the anime! Who really cares if it's Plum or Sumomo!? The character is the same, isn't she? So what matters!?

    i own all 8 and the anime series, it's my favorite anime of all time. And for you to neglect a translation based on names alone, is again, very lame in my opinion.
