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 Chihiro, a young boy, being 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, despite being distant from 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

Ok, so I do admit that ,based on the title, I might have come here looking for something slightly... "Different". But... It's fine, it's fine.

Ok... So Chihiro, an elementary schooler obsessed with cleaning (more on that crap later) suddenly becomes an orphan when his mother passes away. A whimsical and childish (...) uncle that he meets for the first time decides to take him in, to live together in his mansion. As Chihiro feels like he owes him a great debt though, he puts on a maid costume and decides to bdsm-roleplay the helpless strapped-to-a-table maid with him... Nah, I... "cough" You, wish. It is read more

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
