After the sudden death of his mother, elementary school student Chihiro Komiya is left with no home and no family. But this changes when he encounters a rich and frivolous stranger who turns out to be his long-lost uncle, Madoka Takatori. Madoka offers to take Chihiro in, but upon arriving at his uncle's high-class mansion, the young boy is greeted by a plethora of dust and garbage. As Chihiro's neatfreak instincts kick in, he sets about cleaning the entire residence.

Shounen Maid is a lighthearted comedy that follows Chihiro as he finds himself dressed in a frilly uniform (handmade by his uncle), receiving a salary, and working as maid of the house.

Shounen Maid is a TERRIBLY underrated show. I can get, however, where the reluctance to touch this show might be coming from, since 8bit produced it and the summary sounds like the premise to some terrible shotacon nightmare.

This is one of those (rare in this medium and industry, I am extremely sorry to express) 'don't judge a book by its cover' cases, though: Shounen Maid is basically a gen slice of life show centering around family, friendship and mourning. And it's done beautifully from beginning to end.

The show achieves the perfect balance between sweet, lighthearted comedic tones, and a more serious approach towards read more

To be honest, I really enjoyed this Anime more than any other Slice of Life based anime. It had a more calm environment and the story was absolutely beautiful. I loved the characters and their way of style. The art actually matched the calm setting as well. Sounds actually went on with the anime since some of the background music was wonderful and matched the theme. I'd definitely recommend this because of how wonderful this anime is in Slice of Life. It is possible that even If someone whom does not like Slice of Life based Anime would love this.

Shounen Maid is an anime series that really caught me off-guard. There's nothing too appealing about the cover and the show's premise sounded like it came from a female fanfiction but what caught me off-guard is this turned out to be a heartwarming slice of life show between a kid and his uncle(There's NO YAOI or Shotacon, I can assure you that)

I actually believe that this is one of the most underrated slice of life anime I have ever seen. I've seen a lot of people who avoided this show because they think the premise is crazy (boy dressing up as a maid, I don't read more

People beware, despite it doesnt have explicit shounen ai, you can feel the implied shounen ai in the behaviour of characters, is obvious main characters of this anime are gay (or bi), even when story never develop any romance between them. I don't care about it and actually I enjoy this show, but I am surprised to read reviews which can make you feel this doesn't have anything to do with gay characters, when it does. I mean, this is not kuroshitsuji (which already have some "almost gay moments"), no, this is closer to loveless or super lovers, believe me, if you don't like shounen read more
