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.

I’ve never watched a series that so perfectly encapsulates the iyashikei genre. Everything about it is so warm and simple, I’m shocked that so few people bring up this series when discussing the slice of life genre. However, I think one of the main things that turns people away from this show is how it seems like a show made for shotacons at first glance, but trust me, it’s not that in the slightest!

Shounen Maid is a slice of life series about Komiya Chihiro, an 11 year-old boy whose mother passed away. But when he happens to run into his uncle who he had never ...

Mixed Feelings
Not a bad anime; however, I don't think I was supposed to ship the uncle and his nephew, and yet I did. I liked the episode where they became super spies, it gave a prime example of how stalking is a form of spying, which is true to an extent. Are we all super spies when we continuously scroll through our exes Instagram profile and find out who their new beau is? I'd like to think so.

It was really weird how the nephew dressed up as a cat for his uncle's birthday and let him pet him for the whole day because the uncle ...

Preliminary (8/12 eps)
Content warning: "Comedy" pedophile dog whistling all through the show. Here we have an uncle, Madoka, who right off the bat clothes Chihiro in a frilly feminine maid's uniform that obviously makes Chihiro very uncomfortable. That accomplished Madoka wastes no time making a habit out of sneaking into Chihiro's bed at night after Chihiro has fallen asleep. The show frames this behavior as funny rather than scary and creepy. Chihiro's angry protests are also framed as funny. Soon after, in another "funny" scene, Chihiro is given pepper spray to protect himself from Madoka's appalling boundary violations/sexual harassment. Because childhood sexual assault is funny! Right?

That most ...
