I'll try to keep this short and to the point!

La Verite is apparently a remake of the original, i skipped the first one and went straight for this remake. One guy, surrounded by hundreds of maids. How can you go wrong?

I liked this anime for many reasons, its a "feel-good" anime that doesn't force you to think constantly. I love these animes when they do it right, i feel La Verite did it great!

It has enough of a story and character development to make it interesting throughout the whole show. Probably Verite's strongest point is its characters, i found it interesting learning all the maids read more

Hanaukyo Maid-tai: La Verite: Overall Rating 6/10

I personally thought the beginning of this anime was very boring, but I had to give it a shot. After watching the whole anime I can say it was alright for an anime. I was going to give it a 5, but it was alright for an anime so I changed my mind and gave it a 6.

This anime is whacky in way, it starts off with a young boy named Taro Hanaukyo a 14 year old who is going to be staying with his grandfather because his mother has passed away. All of that change's though when his read more

Ugh, the lovefest for this terrible show is sickening. Let me tell you all why this show is awful:

You know the plot. Little kid is benefactor to billions, has an army of maids that will do anything for him, etc. We know the storyline. And that's fine. The genre exists because shows that do it right can be fun. (See Hayate no Gotoku, Kimi ga Aruji de Shitsuji ga Ore de, even Ah! My Goddess) A fantasy escape of sorts.

But this is none of those things. In fact, this show is worse, because it had potential and bombed. First, it starts off as a complete read more

Recommendations

These two series are similar because they both have a harem setup. In Hayate, the male lead is a butler, but in Hanaukyou, the male lead is the master. In both anime, the male leads are new to mansions and servants, and there is a female maid who is two years older and a love interest of the male lead in both anime. They also both have comedy aspects. These anime are dissimilar though because Hayate is much longer and there is less romance than Maid-tai. Also, the harem aspect of Maid-tai is much greater.
Both have maids and general harem around them, Maid-tai La verite however takes itself a little more seriously while He is my master is more light hearted, both are high levels of fanservice though.
Its abit the same and abit different. some differences are noticeable and the story is more in-depth. just watch it to see the differences
