Due to family troubles, Ren Uesugi and his sister, Mihato, leave their home. They end up moving to the city but find themselves with a lack of money. Somehow they are able to find work in the form of the Kuonji family's mansion, being employed as servants to the three sisters of the Kuonji family: Shinra, Miyu, and Yume. Being a servant also associates Ren with the mansion's additional servants and the Kuonji sisters' friends.
Kimi ga Aruji de Shitsuji ga Ore de also known as They Are My Noble Masters is an anime originally based from an adult visual novel game for PC. It was later released for the PS2 with the adult contents taken out. Finally, the anime version was released in early January of 2008.
They Are My Noble Masters (anime version at least) is safe to watch by any age group and both genders. In fact, I recommend anyone to watch it on their spare time. But ecchi-oriented viewers should be warned, the anime itself is pretty "innocent" so one might get disappointed if raising the ecchi standard too high. With that said, the anime is still very entertaining and should be watched.
At first, this may seem like another ordinary maid/butler/master series with random events to fill up each episode. But in actuality this anime has a deeper story to it as first hinted on episode 1.
Both the artwork of the anime (characters, settings, etc) should not be disappointing to most viewers ... afterall if the artwork is terrible, I doubt the visual novel will be very good selling.
The only department that's a bit lacking in my opinion. There just wasn't any theme song that is particularly outstanding that I can recall (sadly the OP and ED were so-so as well) ... NOT terrible, they are just okay (they do fit some scene occasionally).
Another one of the strong point of the anime. Through each little event in the series, character relationships are developed and over time one will come to understand the characters more and more ...in the end, one will have a good understanding of each uniquely developed character.
Just to name an example:
Why Shinra is attached to Miyu but not Yume was explained half way through the story. Later on they were able to talk things through and strengthen the bonds between them.
I definitely enjoyed the anime a lot more than I first expected. The fact that they have the right voice actor animating a particular role just made it even more entertaining (watch and you'll know what I mean). This will be glaringly obvious to anyone who have watched G Gundam.read more
They are my Noble Masters is ecchi harem with a great story. That pretty much sums it up and if any of you out there have watched a lot of harem, you'll know it's a rare thing when it has a story at all. What was great about this anime is that the story doesn't apologize for itself - it is what it is. The eldest sister, Shinra, is a weird cross between a tsundere and a deredere with potent perverted instincs. She's so unique, that she alone is worth watching this series.
But the supporting cast minus maybe one or two characters are all well-developed and you find you know them intimiately by the end of the series, which is another rare thing. The theme of this story is essentially this trio of rich sisters who lost their parents, taking on delinquents or orphans like them to become their butlers and make them a part of their family. And what's great is that this anime never loses that theme, not for a moment. Most anime will introduce a theme and then forget it two episode in in order to dispense with the cliched nuances of harem anime. So, by remembering the theme, this anime accomplishes so much. I wanted 30 more episodes of this anime simply for that reason. It was refreshing and I fell in love with the people.
There were some minor problems. The relationship between Shinra and Ren could have been developed more, but the animators chose to put it off most of the time in order to stuff each episode with Shinra basically molesting her chief maid and her lolita-looking younger sister. It wasn't bad (it was very good, if you get me. hehe), but romantics might be a little disppointed until the last episode. Also, as mentioned before, this series was just too short, but it's because it was so good. So it's a win/lose proposition.
I would recommend this to any guy. (I just don't see how girls could enjoy this.) It's certainly among the best out there and considering it was released in 2008, I'll have my fingers crossed for a second season.read more
They Are My Noble Masters is a Harem, Ecchi, Romance, Comedy that pays more attention to its extremely ecchi fanservice rather than the actual romance or comedy.
The series is about a brother and sister (Ren and Mihato) who ran away from home in order to start a new life together and after a turn of events, they end up working for a famous, rich Kuonji family consisting of 3 sisters (Shinra, Miyu and Yume). Surprisingly this anime has an underlining story to it but for the most part it is full of random mini stories/adventures that have little relation with each other. Each episode spends it’s time either focusing on a specific character or theme, usually involving Ren getting to know one of the girls, so the series never gets entirely boring and it becomes slightly dramatic later on.
There are plenty of characters in this short series and each with their own unique personality. Nevertheless only a few of them seem to get plenty of attention, while the rest barely get any screen time. But at least they all get their own moment to shine.
I must say that the quality of the animation is somewhat good with a lustrous colour palette, for the nicely drawn backgrounds and characters. But most of the effort seems to go towards the fanservice, which is a good thing I suppose. The music can only be described as very upbeat and even though it’s good, there’s nothing special about it.
Overall They Are My Noble Masters proved to be a very enjoyable ecchi, comedy with quite a few parodies for the hardcore anime fan to enjoy. There’s plenty of tasteful fanservice and adult humour for any guy to enjoy as well but sometimes it does feel a bit excessive. At least this anime has creative ways of censoring nudity XD. In the end this series did prove to be somewhat dull compared to its superior counterpart (Hayate no Gotoku) but if you just feel like watching something entertaining and extremely ecchi then be sure to check this out.
KimiAru was very good to my surprise and not because of the story or the art but because of the enjoyment you get from this, it really attracts you with the characters and the comedy is just as good as the parodies.
A simple story, two siblings ran out from their house because their father was abusive, they try to get jobs but they fail, one day he saw a blonde girl that was going to faint, he catchs her and brings her to her house and it happens to be a mansion, her sister convince them to give them a job and from there starts what is a simple but good story.
[b][u]Art & Animation[/u][/b]
The art style was very good for being an anime aired on 2008, the animation is just as good, the character design is good and the art from the background was really good too.
The sound and background music was very good, the voice acting was very good too and the OP and ED were good.
This is one of the strong points of KimiAru, all of them are really great, they weren't cliche and they all have their back story that makes them even more likeable, Ren is really relatable and you can't choose who you want to see him with, because all the girls are really great and Tajiri was freaking hilarious, i really liked Natose she was kind even if she didn't look like it the first time you see her and Kuki Ageha was great
The comedy and the parodies makes this even more enjoyable, it was great and the ecchi elements too, after completing this i wanted more and i saw the alternate story MajiKoi where the only character that appears again is Kuki Ageha she is such a Badass.read more
Sometimes butlers are depicted as graying old men named Jeeves. Other times, they're the kind of butler we can only dream about. These anime butlers will make you wish you had your very own impeccably-dressed servant.
