Synopsis

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 slice of life/comedy anime of the Spring season 2016, which doesn't seem to be very popular, but that doesn't mean that it is bad or not enjoyable.
In case you got some shounen-ai vibes from it and decided not to watch it or drop it, that is not the case in this anime. Shounen Maid, mainly, revolves around a heartwarming relationship between uncle and nephew.

Story: 8/10
Shounen Maid starts with a heartwarming way, as Chihiro, a young boy, is left homeless with supposedly no relatives after his mom died. That's when he suddenly finds his uncle, Madoka, who decides to take him in, read more

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

What do people see first is:
Studio? Yes
Art style? Yes
Rating? No doubt it,absolutely Yes

I didn't really like anime produced by 8bit, such as Grisaia or Infinite Stratos (I don't like ecchi and harem) but I don't think Shounen Maid is bad. It reminds me of anime that I think isn't very different, they were rated low because the story is mediocre or bad. If I say bluntly,underrated anime in this season. I don't really like to make a review,but,because of the low rating makes me act to share my thoughts. N/T: I'm not very good about reviewing, don't expect more.

Shounen maid, as you can deduct from the title and the cover photo, is a comedy, slice of life with a little shounen ai on it. If you like shounen ai, you'll love this a lot; if you don't but you like slice of life, it still remains enjoyable as you can look at it as a heartwarming relationship of uncle-nephew rather than them 'being gay'. Also, it does not contain anything extreme (and by extreme you know what I mean) which makes this anime lovable


The story wasn't that new, the plot only works because one of our mc's parents died, his single mom. read more
