Due to his mother and sister, who both love professional wrestling, Kinjirou Sakamachi developed a resilient body that could take hard punches, aggressive kicks, and even deadly vehicle bumps, in order to survive their various grappling positions and locks. However, he also developed gynophobia, an abnormal fear of women. With just one touch from a girl, his nose bleeds uncontrollably, he sweats excessively, and in rare cases, faints abruptly.
His life changes for the worse because of a fated meeting in the restroom. While trying to escape from a girl, he discovers that the most popular student in their school, Subaru Konoe—the butler of the headmaster’s daughter, Kanade Suzutsuki—is actually female! Surprised, Subaru violently assaults Kinjirou, dealing significant damage and knocking him unconscious. When he comes to, he meets Kanade. In exchange for his silence, she promises to help cure his phobia.
Finishing this series, I'm disappointed, but the fact that I cared in the first place is a point in its favor.
It's difficult to really judge these harem fanservice shows. They give what they should give, but they rarely give me what I want, and maybe I'm expecting too much.
It's a perfectly enjoyable rom com. Everything is as it should be. The general characters archetypes, the twist within the premise, likeable enough characters, and enough humor to get by.
Yet, the "romance" part seems... lacking. This is more an issue with the genre as a whole then Mayo Chiki. Genuine romantic resolution always seems out of grasp.
The characters that need to get together never do get together, and when the series is over, you begin to wonder what the point of it all was.
My first run-through with this anime, I loved it. It started out very well and interesting; and the more episodes I watched, the more I fell in love with the anime.
Each episode kept me more and more interested in the anime. And even with my second run-through of rewatching the whole anime, I felt the same joy... there was a happiness that I felt more and more as I watched and enjoyed the series.
There is romance, ecchi (not ridiculous ecchi), comedy, & cross-dressing, and it's very entertaining. To me, I felt this anime was much of a generic romcom (romance/comedy)... where it doesn't teach much
or give meaningful insights on symbolism to life and such. But that it's entertainment purposes, of which it does very well in providing that!
This anime is about romance between main character Jirou (male) and slightly less main character Subaru (female). Its interesting plot is set to expand upon the episodes of bonding between these two who started off on the wrong foot. There are also a few important supporting characters who are very likable; they assist in moving the story forward and supporting the main character. Having these side characters each play their unique roles in the story along with their interactions with the main protagonist really makes this anime a joy and laugh to watch.
The opening song also really grew on me and if you watch it, it'll grow on you too. The pacing itself is very well done throughout the series; giving me such a high incentive to continue watching, I marathoned the whole 12 episodes and skipped my sleep that night >-> However, many people including myself felt that there was something missing from/after the conclusion.
Have you ever watched those anime's where it is good, but there is something that you just want from it, something more... even though you've already finished all the episodes? That's how this anime is. However, it is very enjoyable nonetheless. I know that the anime may leave fans wanting more, but accepting its conclusion appreciates the enjoyment that came from the anime.
I would say that satisfaction varies upon viewers around: 7.75 to 8.75 out of 10.
Mayo Chiki! Is an example of a nice comedy, i thought this was going to be boring but i really enjoyed this and a lot, i saw a lot of comments saying that Kenjirou looked like Ryuuji from Toradora and at that time i didn't saw Toradora but now that i have seen it, they look a lot.
It's about a girl who hides the fact that she is a girl so she can be a butler but Kenjirou finds out about this by accident and he is menaced to hide this or she will make him disappear, the story is good even if this
sounds silly but there's no ending, that bothered me, it ended with a normal ep. like a little back story for one of the girls he met before and didn't appear much but the story is good.
Art & Animation
The animations was very good, the details, the landscape is great, the characters design are very good too.
The sound is very good, the VA was very good, the OP and ED are good.
The characters are interesting, all of them are different and refreshing in a comedy and not just the normal or cliche characters on other anime series, they all were very good, they were funny, they had their purpose and even if this was a harem they don't like Kenjirou at the first time they see him.
A mix of everything made this really enjoyable, i got a very good enjoyment from this and in a episode two girls appear and they happen to look like the sisters from KissxSis; This would have been even better if they didn't make that final episode 13 the ending, it looked more like a 6th episode to be honest and it was a let down, this didn't have a proper end.
The only reason I watched and finished Mayo Chiki was for the cross-dressing butler. I actually wish I had skipped all the episodes without her in it because this anime doesn't have much else going for it other than horribly overused harem cliches and ecchies thrown into a huge pile of you know what.
Guy discovers girl's secret. They make agreement to keep secret. They get close. Some other random girls show up. Lots of blushing and more blushing and nosebleeds. Every girl falling for the MC... how original.
The art is pretty impressive honestly. See for yourself.
Voices and soundtracks were good.
No complaints here.
Other than Subaru, I found many of the characters to be obnoxious: annoying little sister, obsessive BL fangirl, physically/verbally abusive tsundere, etc.
I still have to give 7 for this because Subaru is so adorkable, I think she just gave me a cross-dressing fetish.
Story overall is pretty uninspiring but Mayo Chiki looks great and there is Subaru.
I would recommend this. At least watch the first 2-3 eps, and if you don't like Subaru, then quit. If you don't like Subaru, then I don't like you, so you probably shouldn't be asking me for anime recommendations anyway.
Sometimes butlers are depicted as graying old men named Jeeves. Other times, they're the kind of butler we can only dream about. These anime butlers will make you wish you had your very own impeccably-dressed servant.
