As Kobayashi sets off for another day at work, she opens her apartment door only to be met by an unusually frightening sight—the head of a dragon, staring at her from across the balcony. The dragon immediately transforms into a cute, busty, and energetic young girl dressed in a maid outfit, introducing herself as Tooru.
It turns out that the stoic programmer had come across the dragon the previous night on a drunken excursion to the mountains, and since the mythical beast had nowhere else to go, she had offered the creature a place to stay in her home. Thus, Tooru had arrived to cash in on the offer, ready to repay her savior's kindness by working as her personal maidservant. Though deeply regretful of her words and hesitant to follow through on her promise, a mix of guilt and Tooru's incredible dragon abilities convinces Kobayashi to take the girl in.
Despite being extremely efficient at her job, the maid's unorthodox methods of housekeeping often end up horrifying Kobayashi and at times bring more trouble than help. Furthermore, the circumstances behind the dragon's arrival on Earth seem to be much more complicated than at first glance, as Tooru bears some heavy emotions and painful memories. To top it all off, Tooru's presence ends up attracting several other mythical beings to her new home, bringing in a host of eccentric personalities. Although Kobayashi makes her best effort to handle the crazy situation that she has found herself in, nothing has prepared her for this new life with a dragon maid.
Dragons can be dangerous, it can also be CUTE AS ALL FUKKK.
I'll be reviewing Kobayashi-San chi no Maid Dragon as an Anime only watcher (although I read the first couple of chapters, just lazy to continue any further)
A dragon who seemed to be in great danger was saved by the almighty Drunkayashi. In order to repay her kindness. She becomes her maid, and with that, the Unending story between these 2 begin. I wonder how it'll turn out...
What can I say? All these characters (D)ominate my heart. The way Tooru would just cook her (D)elicious tail. But Kobayashi refuses becuz she think
it's (D)isgusting. Total D's=3. I can assume that Tooru is a triple D cup. Tooru is the main dragon of the series with her big smile, big heart, big attitude, and big..oh so big breasts. I'm sure you are guaranteed one chuckle or laugh each episode. I love how much Tooru clings to Yashi (I'm saying Yashi cuz Kobayashi is too much to type on mobile) it's a cute way of showing gratitude...I guess. The relationship between Tooru and Yashi will probably increase as the show goes on. I thought these 2 would be the main focus of the entire anime...
UNTIL THIS CUTE AS FUCK LOLI DRAGON COMES INTO PLAY!
Kanna, this girl must be my spirit animal. She is a loli done right. A loli who is not annoying as fuk and can still make u smile for 3/4ths of an episode. Her character design is great and her VA, give that woman a FUKKING raise :3.
Quet..Kwetzu...Quetzalcoatl...I'll just call her Q-Cup (which apparently she is..Q..cup) This character along with Fafnir has only been introduced lately and are still waiting for more character development from these 2.
It's KyoAni...cmon now.
It's KyoAni...cmon now.
It's Kyo..k I'll stop
Out of all the animes for winter 2017. This anime takes my full enjoyment. How can a slice of slice series like this, have more action than some action animes that I know? This is the only anime I know that they make badass things. Such as:
"And playing Dark Souls"
How will u even compare? This series takes the cake regarding full enjoyment.
I guess because it's a SOL, there isn't too much to dive on except the fact that it hurts to wait 1 week for 24 minutes of god sauce. The characters are fun, the overall plot and premise proves to be interesting, and the animation...mmmm...tasty. I can't wait to see more of these characters and their crazy shenanigans.
However I do have somewhat a concern for Tooru's past. Even Kanna's
I just..idk...feel like something happened in the past. Like something not very good. Just a feeling though.
I think this is the shortest review I've made thus far. I guess it's obvious considering this is a slice of life and a series to just sit back and relax with. I totally recommend this to anyone who wants something fun and exciting. Becuz it'll put a smile on your face...
do you like cuteness,dragons,comedy and a unique plot? then just start watching this show beacuse it's probably one of the best i've seen.
this is a review upto episode 7,And it will contain spoilers,although very minor as the show isn't that plot-heavy.
Story:7/10,the story is about Our main character 'Saving' A Dragon called Tohru which later falls in-love with our main character and starts living with her as her maid,soon after more of tohru's dragon friends come and lots of things happen in-between ( not things i predicted. )the Show is rather unique in a way but it isn't a brand new idea of monster girls living
Art :9/10,this is one of the show's strong points. it's Art is very very well done.as expected from Kyoto animation who did other great shows such as the melancholy of haruhi suzumiya,the art is cute when it needs to be and it's Smooth in the battle scenes,it's overall Very good and you can watch the show just for this and the sound.
Sound :7/10,another strong point for the show is that the Sound is Great.So far the ost's are Not amazing but still good and the opening/ending are two of the best this season.
Character:8/10,the characters are so far,not very generic and are rather unique,they lack backstory and one character still hasn't been introduced,The characters can be summed up with
Kanna, who is Tohru's friend, is a.. well, a Loli. She's the most cute character i've seen upto now. and i'm sure everyone acknowledges her cuteness.
Tohru, who is the Dragon maid of Kobayashi, is as noted a 'D cup' Being that D stands from Dragon. Good information, She's cute, funny, and in-love with kobayashi.
Kobayashi who is the main 'Human' character, a flatchested office lady who is often noted for 'Dead fish eyes' but also has a warm side.
Fafnir, the ultimate gamer and Emo Who is the most hilarious in my opinion.
Lucoa, Pretty much just there for her..i suppose triple D cup and her interactions with Shouta.
Shouta, there isn't much to say about him, he's just a Shota.
saikawa, Kanna's friend who Orgasms everytime kanna touches her, not that i dislike ahegao.
kobayashi's office friend Who is also an otaku at home.
Elma, who is a Double D cup i think, is a character that was introduced later in the series. she's as cute and funny as other characters but is also unique in how she 'doesn't want to break the balance'
The anime still needs some backstory for the characters But for now these characters just make the anime very fun and genuine. ( Kanna and saikawa's friendship(?) is the most cute and Innocent one i've seen. )
enjoyment:10/10,this anime,even if nothing in it is perfect,Is so far the most entertaining thing i've seen,it's Very heartwarming and it's hard to explain but the anime just gives off this very happy,Unique feeling.
Overall:10/10,the anime is still airing so this rating may change.but i highly doubt that.
My opinion is still the same but i could say the series got even better with the introduction of Elma, a Dragon who was tohru's 'Rival' in the dragon world, We got yet another cute and funny character and the series just got better as i really love Elma's character, Everything i said above is still the same
I will rewrite this review for when the anime finishes but for now I'll like to get this out whilst the anime is still being judged by us amateur anime critics. I have one thing to say about Kobayashi:
Simplicity at its finest work.
Kobayashi know's what it wants to be and it executes that perfectly. Dragons adjusting to the humane world we know as "Earth" and shenanigans follow from that. The concept has been done before, but never has it been refined to what Kobayashi is offering.
It's a simple comedy, but yet it knows what it wants to be. Kobayashi knows it is simple, but
funny and it makes no jabs at trying to branch out in territories unbound to them just for more fanservice.(Well aside from quetzalcoatl...yeah.)
The characters are from mythology, and that is what gives them refinement. The infamous Fafnir to Quetzalcoatl. All of them have some form of unique marking inside of history itself and that gives the characters their own depth. But seeming them humanized and trying to adjust to society whilst the funny quirks that follow in an everyday life of living with dragons is what makes this show enjoyable.
It is simple, but it knows what it wants to be and therefore it makes no other attempts in trying to be something else. It is there for us to enjoy weekly, and nothing more should be said about it. The show isn't complex, but that isn't needed for you to enjoy yourself with the show.
The artwork of the characters and their design themselves are simple as well, but they offer nice depth as well. Each of them have a distinctive outfit which matches their personality and archetype despite just being...simple.
If you want something to simply smile, and just overall have a pleasant time watching: rest assured, as the everyday life of following a human as they watch dragon's humanize and adjust to everything will surely help you have a pleasant time. Kobayashi is a very enjoyable show overall, and I highly recommend those looking for something this season to give it a whirl, especially if you like simple animes.
The show started out cute and I can admit that the appeal was there when it first started. But unfortunately that appeal went down the drain very very quickly. What appeared to be a cute story about a girl and her dragon devolved into what can only be known as one of the worst tropes in anime. While the show could have been perfectly fine without it it still decided to delve into pedophilic jokes about sexually harassing children.
While this might not bother some viewers I have serious moral issues with it and won't be continuing it myself. If the show hadn't taken this
turn I can say that it probably would have been a favorite of mine. But instead here we are, with the same old tired tropes that cause serious issues. While I'm not saying others shouldn't watch it some foresight and warning might help other people if this isn't content that they want to watch.
