In the distant future, since the Earth has become overpopulated, efforts to find and colonize on other planets have begun. However, one of the ships, the "Mesopotamia" malfunctions and all but 6 of its inhabitants are all killed. the remaining 6 manage to escape to a nearby planet named "Terra ll ", which is similar to Earth in many respects. However, all of them are male. Therefore, as to not let their efforts go to waste, they begin to set up 6 countries and to reproduce through cloning and genetic engineering. however, there are still no women, and to make up for it they create lifelike advanced female androids called "Marionettes" which do everyday chores and work. However, they are all emotionless machines. But one day, a ordinary boy named Otaru finds and awakens 3 special battle type Marionettes that have emotions due to a "Maiden Circuit" within them. It's up to him then to teach them and allow their emotions to grow, and when a nearby country threatens with world domination, it's up to to Otaru and his "human" Marionettes to protect their country.

Man~ it sure is good to re-watch some old anime sometimes, too much 720p-1080p is bad for your health (hehe). Specially if its Sci-fi, Comedy and Romance... well the action is not bad either.

Story:
The story revolves around Otaru Mamiya and his three Marionettes named Lime, Cherry and Bloodberry, but they are not just an ordinary ordinary marionettes, they have a system called "Maiden Circuit" that act like the source of their emotion thats why they can laugh and cry. A futuristic setting in a planet named Terra - II in the country of Japones where there are no female and all male are born from read more

Saber Marionette J can be described as a Sci-Fi-Harem-Comedy that is basically light-hearted with a bit of action thrown in. The story is about Otaru, three female androids called Marionettes, and there struggles to cope in a world without actual women.

It came to be this way because of an accident on a colonization ship that left six men alive on the surface, and they use genetics to populate the planet of Terra II. The direct clones of the six survivors rule the six nations that exist on the planet, Otaru being from Japoness which looks like feudal Japan.

Otaru tries to grow the personality of read more

If you're looking for a fun oldie full of comedy, action, romance, and sci-fi, then this might be the series for you, especially if you aren't too picky about the quality. I found this series by pressing the “random anime series” button on a website, and honestly I'm glad I did.

The premise of the series is that sometime in the future, a group of 6 explorers made an emergency crash onto the Planet of Terra. There was the inconvenient problem that they landed without any females. Rather than wither off on this distant planet, the six decided to make clones of themselves, and thus read more

Imagine yourself being a man (if you aren't) and living in a planet full of other dudes... i mean ... NO REAL WOMAN !!!!

This would sond like a gay anime, but it is not !!! Because of this premise it is rather natural that men end up coupling with others... i mean... other men.

So the anime starts with Otaru (the protagonist) finding himself not interested at all in other men, and get interested in human female androids. But these are merely machines , that has no "heart" and only serves his master at his command.

The show then develops in one of the most famous read more
