Why do you think Chi keeps saying the word "Chi"?

    Honestly, I haven't read the full manga but I've watched every episode..

    Anyway, I think that Chi keeps saying "Chi" because of her "mother"'s name is Chitose?
    or...
    is there a real reason behind it that I missed?

    I'd have to rewatch the first two episodes and see when she first says that. But in the last graphic novel they go into how the Chobits name came about.

    Maybe it's a hidden part of her programming. It could be taken from the Chinese "Chi" or something, as in her inner spirit.

    Review of Episode 1 from Kemicle wrote:
    As Hideki brings Chi home, he is greeted by his Apartment Landlady, Chitose. Popular belief also says that the reason why Chii only said 'Chi' in the beginning was because those were first sounds in Chitose's name.

    When you think about it, Chi only knew her as "mama", as far as we know. Also one would think that if she had that memory, if you will, then she should also at least slightly recognize Chitose's face or voice.
