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

"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 must say that I was pleasantly surprised by Steel Angel Kurumi. Oh, don't get me wrong, it's not a good show by far but it has a real sense of fun around it that still managed to entertain me even after all these years.

The art is bright and colourful, but the designs were what I'd call typically anime. Though I must admit that the costumes for each of the Angels was quite distinct and memorable. The animation was not so hot. Most of it was acceptable, but the fight scenes (where it really counted) were often animated very cheaply. A punch or kick was read more

Steel Angel Kurumi is a show I expected to absolutely hate, and now that I'm done with it, I've got some very mixed feelings about the thing.

Story: 5/10
The story is pretty nonsensical and loose. In short, a prepubescent boy accidentally kisses a robot girl, and he travels around with a scientist and some other robot girls on a quest to do...something? It's all very unclear. There's also some secret science/military group out to get them. None of this is particularly exciting or done well. After the show takes itself too seriously for the last few episodes, the ending is a total cop-out.

Art: 5/10

Anime: Kyoushirou to Towa no Sora
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.

Anime: Akikan!
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

Anime: Chobits
Steel angel kurumi is about a boy who finds and activates a humanoid ...like 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.

Anime: Mahoromatic 2
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.
