MaMa is two separate stories with completely different characters in each of the two episodes. Both focus on mother/son sexual relations. This series is from 1997 and the graphics do not hold up at all, in fact I felt like I was watching an animated comic strip rather than an anime.
Story one is about a guy named Yuichi who's father passes away and he goes to live with his father's ex-wife, who is not related to the Yuichi in any way. While packing he finds a video tape of his new mother-to-be, Yukiko, having sex with a strange man. When he
gets to his new house he is greeted by his new sister, a college age girl name Mika, who is the adopted daughter of Yukiko (Mama). It turns out that Mika has been in love with Yuichi for a long time, and when she hears him watching the video tape of Mama having sex she makes a move on him, only the be turned away. In her anger Mika goes and grabs several other video tapes of Mama having sex with multiple partners and throws them into his room. After watching tape after tape of Mama engaged in all forms of sexual play he goes to bed. Mama soon joins him and has sex with him. As they finish Mika comes in and explains that she has been having sex with Mama to relieve Mama's sexual frustration and to keep he away from seedy men. She then joins in the group, they all have sex together, and live happily ever after.
Story two starts out with a car crash in which the father is killed and the mother is left in a wheel chair and with missing memories. Yuichi, the son (not the same Yuichi as in story one), survives the crash without any injuries. Yuichi is not Mama's real son, he was adopted after her real child died, and she cannot remember who he is after the crash. They are cared for in their mansion by a live in maid named Rika. One day Yuichi catches Mama and Rika having sex while taking a bath. Shortly after Yuichi is left to care for Mama himself and has to give her a bath after she falls and spills food all over her self. During the bath Mama tries to seduce Yuichi, but he resists the temptation. Rika comes to comfort the confused Yuichi and explains that he is now the master of the mansion and that she and Mama are now his sex slaves just as his adopted father was before him. Yuichi finally gives into temptation and lives on happily ever after by being the master of Rika and Mama.
Neither story was very good, and I felt that both Yuichi characters were extremely wishy-washy and annoying. The overall animation style really annoyed me; it felt like someone took a comic strip and ran it through Photoshop and just had their way with the texture filters. The colors were too bold and saturated and the whole look of the anime was unnatural. Nothing stood out as particularly good and to me the only memorable thing about the series was just how bad the graphics are.
