Chi is home safe, but Hideki notes something new between them. Minoru continues his relentless search for more information on the mysterious Chobits. Despite Hideki's violent contempt, Dragonfly eagerly - and apologetically - offers his help.
Anxious to analyze her, Chi's abductor, who goes by Dragonfly on the web, connects her to a room full of his custom models. As he trespasses on forbidden territory, Chi's dark side gets physical to disable his attempts.
Hideki takes a week off from work to study for a big test. But when he loses his wallet, growls from his empty stomach ruin all hopes of concentration. Determined to help her master, Chi goes on a mission to cure his hunger pangs.
After his boss gives him a DVD player, Hideki gets a video game from Minoru. Overjoyed to know Chi can play games too, Hideki hooks her and Sumomo up to the TV to give it a try, but things never seem to go as expected with Chi.
Paranoia takes hold of Hideki when he hears a murder story and is convinced the apartment below his is haunted. Ms. Hibiya, Shinbo, and Minoru join forces to investigate the building and dispel Hideki's fears before he loses too much sleep.
When it comes to dating, Hideki's clueless. While on a date with his coworker Yumi, he's stumped by her heavy questions concerning Persecoms. Alone at home, Chi gets wrapped up in another book that seems to touch her in a deep, hidden place.
When Hideki finally finds Chi, she and all the other Persecoms in the city seem to be in a trance. Even Minoru is stumped over the strange behavior. After things cool off, Hideki finds Chi a nice job at Tirol, a nearby bakery.
Persecoms are so amazing: they can work for money just like people. Chi wants to help Hideki pay his bills, so she sets out to find a good job. Her mission gets a little off course, and a whole new side of Chi is exposed.
Hideki knows so little about Persocoms that he doesn't even realize Chi needs charging. He's already late on his electric bill, and when he tries to plug her in to a power source the whole building loses power!
Getting into college is Hideki's first priority, but he needs a job to pay the bills. Now he's got a Persecom, but since he can't afford to buy her software, his only option is to teach her everything himself.
Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
