Shiratori Ryuushi is a young artist-in-training, about to start studying at a vocational school. Arriving at his new lodgings, Narutakisou, he finds himself the focus of attention for the collection of weirdos that inhabit the place. He also meets and falls for the landlady, Aoba Kozue, who seems to be both lovely and charming. However, Kozue is not what she seems to be... in fact, she's more.

When I was younger, people often treated mental illnesses as if they were a joke or an excuse. People suffering from depression were often called lazy, schizophreniacs were shunned, more serious cases of mental illnesses were put away - out of sight, out of mind. Because of these beliefs, and because of some atrocious acts which were sensationalised through national media, all mental illnesses became tarred with the same brush. It's only in the last few years that society has become more accepting and understanding of the suffering caused by mental illnesses on the part of those suffering from them, and those who care for, read more

When watching an anime series, above all else, there are really only two important distinguishing qualities that make good anime great: storyline and character. What makes Mahoraba absolutely a joy to watch is the cast of dynamic characters who we learn to love throughout the series. The characters in Mahoraba are very unique but genuine. They each have their own quirks and faults and as the story progresses, we learn a little more about each of them. It's funny how in the first few episodes, everyone tends to pick their favorites. I did the same thing, and there were even read more

Mahoraba is definitely an interesting anime, on the surface, it looks like nothing more than a slice of life, typical, boring anime with no plot and uninteresting characters. After watching it, I was pleasantly surprised by it actually.

Story, 7/10: There really isn't a main plot to the show, instead they supplement it with some small stories that may or may not come back in later episodes. The show focuses more on characters backgrounds, which adds to the stories as well. That being said, the pacing can be a bit off some times, certain things that occur do so very suddenly, sometimes with little read more

Honestly I look at this entire series as the Cutest case of multiple personality disorder ever.
It's a light hearted .. and truely funny and endearing tale of a boy who wants to write childrens books .. and the crazy people he lives with.
If you want to focus on the 2nd main character and her personalities .. thats great .. each one of them is great in a crazy way .. :D

But honestly if your looking for a accurate portrayal of MPD... then go read a medical journal ...

Antipanda Highly Recommends this series for a good laugh and some really interesting characters. read more
