Love and Sex with Robots: The Rise and Fall of Chobits

Chi — like many sex robots including Quin in 2050 — are programmed to be exactly how the owner wants them to be and...If that is the case, then how is it really a romance story if it's already in their code? The point of a romance is to see the two come together, to watch them deal with their differences and become two people in love.
