Mahoro Andou is a powerful combat android designed by Vesper, a secret organization protecting the world against alien invaders. Unfortunately, her remaining operational time is running short. If she continues to fight, she will shut down in about one month. However, if she chooses to avoid combat, she can live freely for over a year.

Suguru Misato is a high school boy who lives alone in a large house left behind by his late parents. Like any other boy his age, he has trouble taking care of the house on his own, so he decides to enlist the help of a maid. His problem is solved in the most unexpected way: when a couple of thugs hijack the bus he is riding, a young, beautiful girl wearing a maid outfit saves the day. It turns out that this girl is Mahoro, who has chosen to live her remaining days as Suguru's new maid.

Mahoro makes the best of her remaining time and develops bonds with Suguru and his friends during their peaceful yet lively everyday interactions. However, Mahoro is hiding her true intentions behind becoming Suguru's maid, and it seems that their pasts are more intertwined than Suguru realizes.

One of the earlier entries in the super-powered maid genre, this action rom-com is still pretty entertaining. It sits right in the middle of that transitional era for Gainax circa 2000 where their work was starting to take on an increasingly goofy look and tone in what would eventually become Trigger's signature style. As an early digital anime it suffers common problems from that time, such as lazy backgrounds and an oversaturated colour palette, but plenty of that Gainax charm shines through. Action scenes are decent, though it's the comedy episodes that carry this first season. It relies a bit too heavily on characters who ...

Mahoromatic aims to bring a new direction towards the Battle Maid trend for shounen animes. But it does not succeed in creating balance. The show blends humor, sentimentality, excitement, and a hint of perversion, but the inconsistent tonal shifts are evident in its characters, struggling to make believable transitions from humor to seriousness.

The story is set in a near-future Earth immersed in a shadow war between Vesper and SAINT. Despite the intention of Mahoromatic to be a parody of Neon Genesis Evangelion, it finds itself no more than an ordinary show. The characters are bland with average action sequences and mecha designs that pale into ...

Gainax is one of my favorite animation studios, but not everything can be perfect and this anime proves it, because just as I did a review on one of Miyazaki's worst anime, now I have to do on one of the worst Gainax anime.

Story (2/10):
Ok I admit that the concept is not so bad and that with a good execution and characters this could have been a very good anime, but unfortunately this is not the case, and the plot is more on the side of the slice of life and the comedy. Ok this is not something so terrible either, if the characters are ...
