Chitose Hibiya








Freya (Oldest Daughter) (Permanently Deactivated)

Chi(Elda) (Youngest Daughter)

Ichiro Mihara (Husband) (Deceased)


Land Lady

Persocom Developer (formerly)

Chitose is the mother of Freya and Chi and owner of the apartment complex where Hideki lives.


Chitose is a tall young woman with Black hair. She wears a yellow Barrett in her hair and sometimes pulls it into a ponytail. In the past, she used to wear glasses and a scientist's cloak, but now dresses as a landlady. She is as considered a beautiful young woman.

Chitose is a very kind woman. In order for Chii to find happiness, she created a story called A City with no People, so Chii could realize her feelings for Hideki. Despite acting a little naive, Chitose is actually smart as she created persocom's with her late husband (Icharo Mihara).


Very little is known about her actual background, except that she was once a scientist, and was married prior to the start of the series. She is never the less very important to the franchise, as the event of the series would not have taken place had it not been for Chitose and her husbands actions.

The pair both wanted a family but were unable to do so since Chitose was unable to bear a child. As such her husband created for her a special persocom, known as a Chobit, who was later named Freya. When the persocom opened her eyes, Freya called Chitose her Momma. Because Freya started to feel unhappy, Chitose asked her husband and inventor of persocoms Ichiro Mihara to create her a sister, whom she named Elda. After Freya's passing, Chitose was forced to follow Elda's wishes and leave her out in the dumpster for someone to find her (in the manga Elda deactivated as a result of trying to save Freya). Shortly afterwards, Ichiro passed away as well, leaving Chitose a widow.


The Old Hibiya Family

When she first appears, Chitose is the landlady/owner of the apartment where Hideki stays. She is very kind and offers clothes for Chii when Hideki cannot afford to purchase them on his own. Throughout the story we learn that Chitose was the creator of persocoms along with her husband as she has an underground laboratory where she observes what is happening with Chii. When Hideki confronted her about the picture he received, Chitose admitted it was "The Old Me", and told the truth about Chii's past. Throughout the series, Chitose is shown to be kind, generous and slightly naive to hide her true 'identity'.

One of the major plots in the story is a book entitled "A City With No People". Chitose created this series to help Chii realize her true programming to find Someone Just For Her. The two characters resemble Freya and Elda; with the light pink representing Elda, and the darker reddish/pink representing the "Other Her"; aka: Freya.
