Preliminary Spoiler

Preliminary (5/11 eps)
On one hand, I get the negative and mixed reviews. This show is not exactly the most original, though it is somewhat unique in what it does. It is also supremely enjoyable to watch and very wholesome at that, so I am not going to dunk on it too hard. It's a very SoL feeling show and if there was ever a sliver of doubt whether I want to hear Rie Takahashi in a maid role, that sliver has now been thoroughly obliterated. This show is pretty much the peak of unadultered, degenrate fan service and I love it for it.

I've watched only the 4 first episodes at moment. However I've enjoyed it very much so far, and here is why:

At first some might think that it is your typical unfunny romance comedy with bad taste. But I don't think so, for me this anime depicts the everyday life of a maid and her master in a very "moe" cute way. This is a slice of life which some might find boring, but other, like myself, find it very entertaining.

The story begins with the master losing his parents and due to financial difficulties, his servants as well. He, thus chooses to take care of ...

This show is the epitome of knowing everything that has been done with the genre, yet making an almost inferior version of it because the creative juices have all but been squeezed out to nothingness. And in case you didn't know, this Summer's Saikin Yatotta Maid ga Ayashii a.k.a The Maid I Hired Recently Is Mysterious is the 2nd anime adaptation of mangaka Wakame Konbu's works, the 1st of which was last Summer's 2-cour, 20-episode long Jahy-sama wa Kujikenai! a.k.a The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated!, which was enjoyable to a certain degree with its comedy and whatnot. Sadly though, what this show offers ...

Your seasonal bit of feel good fodder which has a feel good vibe to it.

Not a bad anime if you're looking for an 11 episode slice of life revolving around a pre teen kid who's innocently ignorant about the other ways he can come off when talking to his maid. It has mild comedy in it if you like the entertaining reactions to comments the MC makes which he isn't fully aware of when he makes them because he's a pre teen kind of sheltered kid with the sub genre being romance which you know there'll never be full on romance because that would just ...

Here is my review of this anime in 2022!

Story (10)
The story is about a boy who lives in a mansion but sadly his parent has died because of an incident... Then all the maids are leaving until one day there is one maid that comes to serve the boy without no reason. It becomes interesting to see their journey when living together. The boy is very spontaneous and the maid is very mischievous. There is a lot of comedy scene in this anime. Not only that, but It's very relaxing to watch this anime :)

The art in this anime is very good! I love ...

A slow romance, generally, that's the type of the romance cute, so cute because of the innocence of the caracters... The more I watched, the more I melted.

Story and Caracters :

Yes, Saikin Yatotta Maid ga Ayashii's not the perfect cute romance. Yuri's saying always the sames things realizing, it gets repetitive. But I can forgive that, Yuri stops declaring his love like that, the story will become weird and will be less cute. I love the reactions of Yuri, he always say his maid is strange, even if in love with she, that's repetitive, but not disturbing. I love his innocence too, he's not realizing ...

When you were 10, did you ever have a super hot maid that seemed like she was a witch and you wanted to sleep with her?
Well here is your chance to live vicariously through a young kid who hires a maid who is made to compete as a top anime waifu with her charm, wit, and large assets.

Maybe if I was a kid and wanted some cheap fan service this would be amazing. The problem with this anime is to me, they are trying two genres that do not seem to go well together, ecchi and slice of life. It's like peanut ...

A lot of people skip this because it isn't up to their normal anime standards, complain a lot while not daring to watch more. Yet make a huge mistake by just doing that. True, the first few episodes can seem a bit repetitive, but there is actually growth in both main characters, Lilith and Yuuri.


The story starts with Yuuri all alone in his mansion, his parents died in a accident leaving him all alone (No explanation where other family are or what they do or why he's left all alone). Lilith soon arrives and doesn't tell who she is really, her name isn't even given ...

The Maid I Hired Recently is pretty SUS.

The title is the premise and the joke. Get ready to have that joke repeated over and over and over again until the season ends. Well I don’t know if that will be the case, but I do know that it’s the case for the past 7 episodes I’ve watched, and quite honestly the joke got old real fast.

Maybe it’s because I enjoyed “The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated” and knowing that this was written by Konbu, the same mangka I expected this to be good, but I’ve got to admit that the charm that hooks ...

I did not expect anything and in truth there is nothing to highlight, it's good, it's not bad and I think it's a very strange idea for an anime but it manages to entertain, from the beginning you know what will happen in this one and that there will be nothing interesting to highlight, It is the typical anime to pass the time that will make you laugh and will keep you entertained for the twelve chapters that this season or good anime has.
The main idea is of a child whose parents die and leave him with an inheritance not so big to support himself, ...

This show was a huge disappointment. I expected some things from it, but it just didn't live up to my hopes.

Saikin Yatotta Maid ga Ayashii is about this annoying brat whose parents died and left him some mansion, and then this maid girl comes in, and starts acting very weird and trying to get very close to him and that just felt very uncomfortable to watch. One reason why I hated this show was because of the main character, 'Yuri', that spoiled brat I was talking about. Whenever he sees that maid do literally anything at all, he shouts 'Ayashii' for no reason. THIS ...

There is one word that sums up everything that has happened on the show thus far, and that word is DISAPPOINTMENT. Even with the casts and shows that the studios have produced, this show just isn't the one. As a viewer, I literally have 0 emotional investment in the show's main casts, and I don't think I ever will given how unfunny and unamusing the characters are. To be honest, as someone who enjoys SoLs and even pure SoLs, the way the story is going, this show isn't even worth watching. Oh, and it'd be funny and amusing if someone actually ...
