Whenever I watch a series like Koharu Biyori, I always find myself a little bit disturbed by the repeated themes of robot girls and maids. I wonder is this what Japanese or men in general really want from their women? A servant with ridiculous body measurements who will call them master? Despite this initial reaction and a fairly uninspired opening episode, this series turned out to be a lot better than I was expecting.

There isn’t a really overall plot to Koharu as its three episodes basically break down to a series of shorts within each episode. Takaya is your standard anime read more

O_o i don't get it...a maid robot the doesn't act like a maid. but a totally modest freak that over doing way to much.

it must be broken. why doesn't he take her back and get a refund. a total failure at a maid: that doesn't abide by her master's wishes. plus, for a android they programed the emotion chip far to much to mimic humans.

despite my irritation with the character, i managed to force myself to watch all three episodes.

It was funny at times and even entertaining at others, it was not your average ecchi full of pantyshots and while some fanservice was completely unjustified, most it was managed in a comical way. The male lead is pretty likeable in my opinion, sweet honest guy, he is not really perverted, more like he has a fetish and a pretty innocent one at that.

I decided to watch this because I was feeling nostalgic and wanted to watch something like chobits (I very very very rarely rewatch a show)... basically I was hoping this was a more lighthearted comedy or slice of life version of chobits, read more

Anime: Mahoromatic
Both were maid story...and quite ecchi...and they really love their master..

Anime: Macademi Wasshoi!
Both animes are very ecchi and have similar situations going on. The characters are kinda similar too, and some are drawn in similar styles. The op songs are kinda similar too. If you liked one, you'll most likely like the other.

Anime: Kodomo no Jikan (TV)
Both are loli ecchis with cute long-haired girls. There's really not much more to say, except that if you're a fan of one you'll probably like the other too. Plus, the main character in both (Rin-Kodomo no Jikan, Yui-Koharu Biyori) are played by Eri Kitamura. 
reportRecommended by TsuruyaSonozaki
Anime: Chobits
Both series are about a guy getting a female robot to satisfy their desire for a girlfriend. Female protagonists in the 2 shows resemble each other as they both have long & golden ponytails.

Anime: Kyou no Go no Ni
Kyou no Go no Ni and Koharu Biyori give a good amount of sexual humor in various situations.
