During Japan's Taisho Era (1912-1926), a scientist named Ayanokoji developed the Steel Angel - an artificial humanoid with superhuman physical abilities. While the Imperial Army wanted to use the Steel Angel as a new means of modern warfare, Ayanokoji wanted his creation to be a new step in the future of mankind. Thus, he defied orders from the Army and secretly made the Steel Angel codenamed "Kurumi". Then one day, a young boy named Nakahito Kagura snuck into Ayanokoji's house as a dare by his friends and stumbled upon Kurumi's lifeless body. A sudden attack by the Imperial Army shook the house, causing Kurumi to fall on Nakahito. At that moment, their lips met, and Kurumi woke up from "the kiss that started a miracle".

A demure, down on his luck character mysteriously activates a beautiful female cyborg and she becomes his faithful servant, but not without a few dark secrets for excess baggage. Sound familiar? I wouldn't doubt it. But is Steel Angel Kurumi just like all of the other robot maid comedies out there? Not quite. You see, Steel Angel Kurumi is actually a story about time travel, and the Steel Angels are much more than just super strong, super fast, super ditsy house maids--they're the only ones who can save the world from mass destruction. This interesting plot arc doesn't come until later in the series, and read more

This anime is just plain stupid.

The plot follows a little loser boy from the past and the steel angels who dress like maids but have the destructive powers of a tank and their shenanigans.

Art was sooo old-school and lame. I know it's an old anime, but come on, there are anime out there made in the 80s and they look awesome, so this has no excuse. And most of the animation went into ripping the female characters' clothes off, so that was an unfabulous little bonus we got there.

I suspect only cretins would find this funny, and only the romantically-impaired would think it read more

"Everyone here on MAL says how they are going to stop the spread of Moe, they are going to return anime to the GAR days! Let's be honest, you aint gonna do a God Damn thing! However, I'll tell you exactly what I'M going to do. I'm going to buy more Moe and give Japanese studios more of my money. Get the FUCK outta my way its MOE TIME MOTHERFUCKERS!" -average anime fan.

Now that I'm done blatantly ripping off movie quotes, it's time to look at one of the popular late 1990s titles that helped usher in the era of Echii Moe shows! This is read more

I enjoyed this anime for the most part, I don't care if the artwork wasn't that good, what I liked in this anime was the humor and sexual mishaps the main character found himself in. Whats so funny is the main character Nakahito must be only 11 years old and he wakes up this steel angel (who just so happens to be hot) and she adores him and loves him and he doesn't know what to do since he hasn't hit puberty yet. Throughout the series he is dragged along by her as she protects him, tries to get him to kiss her, beats up read more

Kaishaku created anime; displays cameos of their animes: Kannazuki no Miko, UFO Princess Valkyrie, Magical Nyan Nyan Taruto, Steel Angel Kurumi. In the Steel Angel Kurumi concept, it uses the factor of "Absolute Angels" and their powers.

Pretty much the same plot. A guy awakes 3 robots girls and they fall in love with him.

ecchi ,
similar story love robotic maiden and human ,
similar robotic maid 
reportRecommended by wolfyna
Both shows have the main male character accidentally activating a girl by a kiss.
The only difference is that steel angel kurumi has girls that are androids while akikan has girls that are cans

Steel angel kurumi is about a boy who finds and activates a humanoid Hideki finding Chii in Chobits... and she considers him her master and will do anything for him. It is less ecchi than chobits and a bit more childish though. 
reportRecommended by vjacobs
Both are series about two powerful maids, in Mahoromatic an android and a cyborg, and in Steel Angel Kurumi two androids, living as sisters in the service of a young boy. The maid androids in either series have some similar personality quirks, and struggle against enemy forces.
