SynopsisThere 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 normal, so on the advice of a friend he seeks help from a club called the 2nd Voluntary club. Were the leader of the club is a sadistic, egotistic girl who accepts the challenge of ridding Tarou of his masochism…
While this story line is far from revolutionary it’s still something that I’ve never came across before, which makes it refreshing to know there’s still new ideas out there. It’s funny as hell watching Tarou get tortured or put in embarrassing situations. The idea of characters from anime being S or M has been around for a long time but this is the first show I’ve seen to make it the central theme of the story and it works great with plenty of great comedy and romance moments
The characters of this show are great and have more depth than you would first expect, while most seem cliché this actually make the show that much funnier as it’s great to see your stereotypical girls thrown into the world of S and M. Of course the backbone of this show is the strange relationship between Tarou (masochist) and Mio (sadist) which is no surprise but there is some good side characters in this show too, like Yuno Arashiko a girl with a terrible fear of men but she is able to like Tarou because his masochism makes so that he is very unlikely to hurt her. And another sadist (the school nurse) and Taros friend who i can’t say much about or id spoil too much.
As this anime is mostly a comedy there's quite a lot of jokes in it naturally. Most are S and M jokes but thankfully there's little to no echhi in this anime. The rest of the comedy is at the expense of Taro as he gets his gets violently beaten by women (mostly Mio) which does little to cure his problem, rather it aggravates it. The humour won’t appeal to everyone but i think it’s quite good and better than many other animes of this type out there at the moment.
The art work is good, clean, clear but nothing that you wouldn't expect in this day and age but it helps make the show and its endless stock of jokes that much better.
Overall I greatly enjoy watching this anime and will continue to watch it to the end, the story’s refreshing , the humour is great, the characters are interesting, the arts good and overall it’s fun to watch. . Any fans of S&M will really love this anime as it’s filled it so if you’re looking for something funny and not too serious then this is perfect for you.
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 him. So, if you didn't notice she is a sadist and loves to hurt Tarou and she then pledges to rid him of his masochism. read more
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.
Both are romantic comedies that deals with a particular illness that the protagonist suffer from, and where the heroine tries and cure their illness.
It's about curing the male character from a , sort of, perverted illness. With MM the guy is turned on by being beat up by a girl and with Mayo Chiki the guy gets nosebleeds whenever he touches (or thinks of something perverted for) a girl.
Just watch the first episode and you will see. Both mc's have similar problems. Both are harems.
Both have a main character that have a disease that is really bothering their life. In one point of both anime's someone try's to heal their disease. When I watched Mayo Chiki! it reminded me of MM! so much that I had to write a recommendation.Both are Harems.
Both series involves a main protagonist struggling to deal with girls in his life. In both anime, the MC has a "disease" that needs a cure with the help of the other characters.
Comedy, romance, drama, and school life also involved.
both have characters that deal with a fear of the opposite sex
both make S&M jokes
in both shows a sadist attempts to heal the main characters of their phobias
both are hilarious
both have the obligatory romance
-both male main characters in both anime have some kind of weird phobia or disease...
-then there is a girl in their same school promise to help him to cure their problems(in both shows)
-then there is this second girl who has a androphobia who fell in love with the boy(in both show)
Mayo chiki is more on romance while MM is more on ecchi..
both series are really fun!
• Both series the main male character is being kicked and hit all the time.
• Both main male character has some kind of "illness" than one of the female main characters promises to cure.
Similar for these two series, follows a main male character, who have some kind of infection illness prior to the story. He soon gets some help from an advising female character, who will be able to cure him and gets back in shape. Though it can be emotionally or physically pain, embarrassment, absurd tactic cures or others.
Mayo Chiki follows a boy who has a nosebleed when being touched by girls and gets advised of a rich girl who likes to tease him. MM follows a boy who have some kind of weird disease when getting hit by girls and enjoys it, which he gets advised on a girl who has an extreme dangerous tsundere personality.
In both, the main character has some kidng of "illness" and is promised it will be cured by a girl. Both main characters gets assaulted by girls frequently. Both are comedies.
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 them. And although Working's male lead isn't a masochist (though he does come to question whether he is), he's a freak in his own right with his "minicon" fetish.
Like I typed above, Working cares little for actual working, and a GREAT degree of emphasis is placed on Inami punching the lead in S1; falling for him more with every punch. In fact, the series has more to do with the lead being punched than serving customers. The hate-to-love-via-punching 'romance' as the respective male leads get used as punching bags in order to cure their violent lady friends = THESE SO SIMILAR!
Similar plot, art, androphobic girl and good-but-unlucky main male character makes it almost identical.
Working bar ... MM club same vocie actors , woman with men phobia ... dominant women and the same feeling.
They have the same atmosphere. Some characters and relationchips are so alike. If you like MM! you'll like Working! too :)
Androphobic heroine. Also main protagonist wants to help the heroine get rid off this mental issue.
androphobic highschool girl and highschool guy who tries to cure her.
Both are about a boy that gets abused by women. Both also have a girl that suffers from androphobia.
Characters design look similar
Yuno and Inami's personality are nearly the same
There're cross-dressing in both
The main character's similar in the way that they both have the same voice actors and weird fetishes. There's also girls inside who are afraid of men. Comedy style is similar and so is the atmosphere
Both have in common:
*Comedy, some romance, slice of life
* Both have an androphobic girl
* characters have fetish and weirdness
* The male protagonist helps to the heroine with her androphobia issues.
* There are cross dressings in both
* Similar design and atmosphere
Both have a female with androphoia who is trying to overcome it with the help from her friends, and just that 1 male who is basically the punching bag.
Both anime has something to do with overcoming something. Both has comedy and romance but MM! i would say has more romance than working
