New Anime Series- Mayo Chiki 01

First Episode Review for: Mayo Chiki!

Summary : Story of a normal Japanese boy going to school, …..wait for it…. except his mother and sister are wrestlers, he gets nosebleeds whenever a girl touches him and the girl he fancies at school turns out to be a sadist with a transvestite butler

Animation : Clear and pleasant to watch, nothing special but heads above western quality

Plot Potential: I don’t think the plot is going to be anything groundbreaking but it’s strong enough that if you are not watching for 30 seconds, you lose what’s going on, I do however think it will be funny

Characters: Not bad for a school harem anime, the butler and sadist rich girl are different enough to stand out

Music: OK, I’m not skipping over the opening/closing tunes, nor am I looking to buy them

Reminds me of: MM!

Overall: I really enjoyed this, and can’t wait for the second one, BUT it does have quite strong sexual overtones that suddenly hit about half-way though (this is a habit of anime, some of which do this kind of stuff half-way though the series, meaning the dubbing/editing people have to get creative {see the neon genesis evangelion ‘crying’ scene }, making it unsuitable for preteens.


Disclaimer: These are mini reviews of anime that are fresh out in Japan and are not licensed in the UK, buy them once they have been licensed or at the very least buy the merchandise, remember if the anime makers make a loss, THEY WILL STOP MAKING ANIME!!
