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

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

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

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

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  read more 
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 
Mio and Taiga's personalities are very similar, in the case that they are both tsundere toward the male lead. 
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.  
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.
