Mahoromatic: Adorable eating chick

Author has started watching Mahoromatic. After one and a half episodes, he says, "The adorable eating chick was the only character that I liked."

The girl to which he refers is Oe Chizuko, known to her friends as "Chizu". She's the namesake for this site. In its original incarnation, the top rotation was about 18 images of her.

Chizu's reaction to Mahoro's cooking was a running gag in the series which I never got tired of.

UPDATE: Just wanted to make sure that Author was aware that Mahoromatic and Neon Genesis Evangelion are the two series which are responsible for the creation of the term "Gainax Ending".

1 It was so long ago that I did not add two and two, so thanks for the reminder.

2 The ending of the first series is OK. The ending of the second series is the trainwreck. The way I understand it, they outran the manga and had to create their own story for the last four-or-so episodes, including their own ending, based only on a short briefing from the mangaka. As it turns out, it's entirely different from how the manga ends.

Also, I hate unsolicited suggestions and advice. (Even when you think you're being funny.)

At Chizumatic, we take pride in being incomplete, incorrect, inconsistent, and unfair. We do all of them deliberately.
