There are twisted tales and twisted tales, but few are as twisted as poor Sado's, who's just realized that he actually likes being made miserable. Of course, knowing that only makes him more miserable, which in turn... well, you get the idea. Desperate to break the circle, Sado volunteers for a special club where he hopes he can work through his issues only to discover that the other members have equally... complex... issues to deal with.

For example, the hyper-aggressive club president Isurugi not only has a violent fear of cats, but also believes herself to be a god! Then there's Yuno, who's terrified of men; the Nurse, who forces other people to perform cosplay; and Hayama, Sado's best friend and a compulsive cross-dresser, who's also the girl that Sado is infatuated with.

There are many animes out there that have perverted characters in them, in fact most do, but animes that focus completely on one characters perversion are few and far between. Most are terrible porn like crap, but some like MM manage to do all that is necessary to be respected in this genre, namely be funny and have good characters.

The story follows Tarou who on the surface seems like a normal high school guy but in actual fact he's got a problem, he’s a hard core masochist (he experiences sexual pleasure from pain for those who didn’t know).Trouble is he wants to be read more

~Multilingual review, English & Español: MM!~

Sadomasochism, Comedy and Romance are the keywords for this series. Considering the bad times I had with similar series featuring these same themes, I would actually say this was a show I should have definitely passed, even if everyone tells me that I shouldn't judge a book by its cover I'm not able to don’t give a first impression to something I haven't seen yet, I can't be helped. But since I'm a baka that doesn't learn from his previous errors I started this show anyway. Oh boy I did good...

In my opinion a successful romance doesn't resides only in read more

MM! Was an anime filled with romance, funny scenes, a good story, and some characters with some problems. I swear there wasn't one character without a problem like masochism or sadism. Anyway MM! Was a great anime in my opinion. This revolves around a highschool student named Tarou and he is a hardcore masochist. So one day his friend sends him to the second volunteering club at his school and Tarou explains his problem to the clubs president and she acts nice in the beginning but she breaks character and starts beating Tarou which to him being beaten by a pretty girl feels great to read more

Pre-notice: If you don't like bad things said about this, then don't read it. I don't want people having seizures and breaking stuff. Otherwise, keep in mind that this is based on the first 3 episodes. Maybe it'll get better later, maybe it'll get worse.

When I first saw this anime on one of the download sites, I thought "oh what the hell, let's give it a try. The art looks good". Well the art WAS good, but that was ALL that was good about this anime. A few episodes into the anime, I stopped seeing the point. I was tricked.

Anime: Mayo Chiki!
In both series the main male character has some kind of "illness" than one of the female main characters promises to cure.
In both series the main male character is being kicked and hit all the time.

Anime: Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi
The underdog fight for you. Underpowered protagonist help the heroine overcome her past by kicking some ass.
Ookami-san's past was kept safe along the series, until the protagonist beat up the bad guy and end the shows altogether.
In MM!, the hero simply beat the living hell out of the bad guy and help the heroine overcome it in a few chapters, leaving the rest of the season for comedy, or a new drama.
The tension of the shows however are kept lukewarm along the story, as both show has mixed both dramatical and funny contents in no formal pattern. It's pretty difficult to guess  read more

Anime: Working!!
MM is built around a sadomasochistic pairing. Working isn't. So, when you first read Working's summary and note that it has a restaurant setting, you'd think it'd share few to no similarities with MM's school club shenanigans. BUT, Working may as well be about the members of a club interacting, so reliant on character gags it is--the whole at-work-not-school aspect getting overlooked... with school girls STILL being main characters. (Anime, I am disappoint...)

What makes these two super-easy to link is MM's Arashiko and Working's Inami. They have a phobia of all things male and react with EXTREME violence whenever one comes close to  read more

Anime: Toradora!
Mio and Taiga's personalities are very similar, in the case that they are both tsundere toward the male lead.

Anime: Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu
Both shows have similar style of animation and character design (especially main girls characters are similar by appearance). Both of them can be considered like parody on school life with ecchi moments. They have similar kind of humor and in both is also cute male cross-dresser.

Anime: Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai
When it comes down to it, these are basically the same show. Male character is scorned by the school population in general, so he joins a vaguely-purposed club populated by mostly girls. Fanservice, romantic tension, and hilarity ensue. Several of the characters have rough analogues between the two shows:

Yuuta = Kodaka
Mio = Sena
Arashiko = Yozora
Tatsuki = Yukimura
Noa = Rika
