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.

~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

Sometimes an anime will get you by its title, such as the long titled ones like "Oreimo" (for short) or like the really short ones like MM!. Now if you ever read the synopsis and have seen the cover of this anime which is Mio in a maid uniform with a bat, then you know that this would be another typical harem genre anime with an annoying tsundere character. However if you stick around you might reconsider that conclusion like me.

Story: 7/10

The excuse plot of this anime is to cure Sado's masochism because it is starting to bother him. Thus he goes to ask read more

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

This was one of those anime's where i just stumbled across it on anime freak and was not expecting the madness that it was about to throw at me. this was just Mad, Mad, Mad all the way through and i loved it.

The main reason i liked this anime was the three main characters (Taro Sado, Mio Isurugi and Arashiko Yuno) who all have their, lets say difficulty's in life at school. I love this trio of misfits. the art style of the game is great and so is the sound, especially when there is a dragon ball Z reference in the anime and 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.
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 what you will have for each episode, maybe both.
Is that a good thing? Your call.
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!
Mio and Taiga's personalities are very similar, in the case that they are both tsundere toward the male lead.
Slapstick school comedies with lots of ironic humor.
MM! and Seitokai no Ichizon both have a similar feel; they both have plenty of 'retardesness', but when it gets serious, the plot is actually DEEP and sometimes moving.
