I'm just gonna get the obvious stuff out of the way first. Ladies versus Butlers is an ecchi harem comedy that does little to break the chain of "we don't need a story as long there are boobies" shows that we see in shows of this genre. Almost all the characters fall perfectly within some set archetype, and don't really see anything in the way of character development.

I'll get the obvious bit out first.

Yes, this anime is the most basic formulaic ecchi/harem anime out there. There should be no surprise there.

This is a key fact which I'm using as a base for this review. It doesn't make sense to treat this anime any more seriously.
