The title character is a sex robot whose artificial intelligence is so advanced that she escapes from her creator and decides to live with a college boy in his appartment.

Chobits was quite a commendable title. From the fact this newer story is apparently a comedy however, I fear it may step on the toes of such a work somewhat. To opt for a live-action format would perhaps be more original in this respect, but I doubt such an option would be to the best of effects in absence of a lavish budget.

I'm kind of shocked to hear this...Not just because something wierd and perverted like this will be either live-action or animated...but the fact that I read it x _ x It's like Chobits only in the beginning, after that everything is just random and wierd and just wrong Anime hyper

I've actually read some chapters of this series and its actually quite interesting. I'll admit the idea isn't completely new, the artwork is pretty good and the cast of characters all have personality's of their own.

This series isn't for everyone (especially for those who are easily offended by manga like this) but for the most part, most of the chapters I've read are entertaining.

Yuria's nothing like Chobits. The characters, story, structure, content, and purpose are all completely different. They share nothing in common except that they're basically about a guy living with an artificial girl of some kind, even though the artificial girls in this case aren't even remotely similar.

There's no way live action could work. Yuria's a high-ecchi manga, bordering on hentai. To go live action with it, they'd either have to completely sacrifice the plot and turn it into regular softcore porn, or censor it heavily, which would ruin most of the humor.

Anyway, nice to see one of my favorite ecchi manga being adapted. I can't imagine how they'll handle it. It's gotta be released as an OVA of some kind, but they can't quite market it as hentai.

Live action for this? Are you kidding ^^ Putting aside Ore Tama it's one of the most perverted non-hentai manga series. They're thinking about making porn movie or what?

Nope, My Balls is not a hentai manga, just very much on the border, same with Yuria 100 Shiki. I can only really see this coming out as an anime due to how the manga plays out, especially considering the lead male is also heavily into pro wrestling~

File this under "things I never really expected to happen." I've read a bit of this one myself and it's surprisingly fun, very ecchi but it wouldn't make sense if it weren't given the premise. I'm betting this will be an OVA to avoid all the necessary censoring for a TV series.

Yuria's a fun character with her often unintentional perverted actions. Her programming turns everything into something sex related. Anime catgrin + sweatdrop

If they can find some women who can accurately "fill" the parts, I say go for live action. The manga is more like porn with a plot than a story with porn scenes.
