Mayo Chiki – anime review

posted in: Anime Review, Featured | 14

After Ikoku Meiro no Croisée , Kaitou Tenshi Twin Angel , Ro-Kyu-Bu, Usagi Drop and Blood C I will present you the 6th review of an Summerseason 2011 anime, about Mayo Chiki.

Mayo Chiki is an 13 episode long show that was made by studio Feel and tells the tale of Sakamachi Kinjirou (Jirou), a highschool boy, with a certain problem, he always gets nosebleed when a girl touches him. It is some kind of gynophobia, because his mother and sister always used him as sparring partner for their wrestling exercises. The other main character is Subaru, who is working as a butler for the rich Suzutsuki household, but mainly takes care of the daughter Kanade and visits the same school as her and all the girls have a crush on him.

[singlepic id=1405 w=320 h=240 float=none] [singlepic id=1408 w=320 h=240 float=none] Everyone at school believe that Subara is a boy, but in fact she’s a girl. For some difficult to understand reason she badly wants to be a butler. Subaru is only allowed to keep working as a butler when nobody at school notices that she is actually a girl. Unfortunately, one day Jirou discovers that Subaru is a girl, to shut his mouth she wants to kill him, but Kanade can stop her.
Suzutsuki Kanade arranges with Jirou that he will keep silent about Subaru’s true identity, in return she promises to help him with overcoming his so called gynophobia and the chaos begins.

[singlepic id=1412 w=320 h=240 float=none] [singlepic id=1409 w=320 h=240 float=none] Well in fact she will only tease him for her personal joy. She is easygoing sadistic and if you ask me an evil girl, because she puts Subara and Jirou into embarrasing situations, who could even expose Subaru’s true identity. But she’s great at playing the playful, erotic sadist XD.
Subara and Jirou have to work together and soon both become very close and friendly.
That both start to hang out as friends causes quite a commotion at the school and at Jirou’s home, he finds himself targeted by the fanatic female Subaru fan club called S4.

[singlepic id=1411 w=320 h=240 float=none] [singlepic id=1406 w=320 h=240 float=none] Two more characters are introduced in the first half of this show, the first one is Usami a member of S4, at first she had a crush on Subaru, but she soon develops feelings torwards Jirou in a tsundere fashion. My favorite character Nakuru, is a beautiful, well developed girl, who is the chairman of the “Let’s warmly protect Subaru-Sama” comittee a split group of S4. Yeah, she’s a weirdo, who draws and sells her own boys love manga and is addicted to glasses, but I like her anyway. She’s the only only one who seems to have no feelings for Jirou. The last episode of Mayo Chiki centered around Nakuru, which I’ve enjoyed a lot. Any other Nakuru fans here ? ^^

[singlepic id=1413 w=320 h=240 float=none] [singlepic id=1410 w=320 h=240 float=none] Mayo Chiki is a bit silly sometimes, because some things doesn’t make much sense, but it’s silly in a creative and very funny way, good comedy is a big part of this anime. There is also romance and drama with a very few heartwarming moments included. The show features a good portion of tasty and good placed fanservice, there are quite a few more hot scenes. It’s nice! ^^

One point I also should mention, is the high quality animationstyle, it is very detailed and has smooth animations, also the characterdesign is very appealing with attractive and cute girls, the eyes looks great. I think we can expect a second season of Mayo Chiki, it was fun to watch.

Thx for reading, I have two more animes reviews of summerseason 2011 left stay tuned.

    I didn’t get around to finishing this one yet, but I probably will one of these days :3 I guess I didn’t get to meet a good majority of the cast yet. Must get back to it soon!

    This was one of only two new series I picked up last season (if Baka Test 2 counts as ‘new’) and I’ve still to finish it. Not that it’s dull or anything, I just couldn’t be bothered to sit and watch any more. I’ll probably get round to finishing it at some point though. Usami is my favourite so far, I like her hostile personality, although Kanade is still great fun to watch.

      baka test 2 is also new, but I had no slot free anymore, so I hadn’t watched it.
      I would say Mayo Chiki is really a little silly in terms of plot but entertaining.
      don’t force yourself ^^

    Is it bad that I’m only interested in this show because of the fan service? I’ve seen a bunch of really appealing shots of the girls of this show. Maybe I’ll just read the doujins and skip the show hahaha.

    • wieselhead

      No its not bad, the fanservice is quite hot, not these cheap pantsu shots you might know from other shows.
      You can also wait for the uncensored version *lol*

    You know, this is probably the only show that I’ve actually finished watching and can relate to in your review! As all the reviews of the anime you have watched is different from mine^^”

    This show was more for enjoyment rather than story. You know, I thought they would show how Kanade and Jirou met. As I remember on a certain episode where Subaru says that Jirou will surely remember Kanade but nothing happened with that.

    I bet there’s going to be a second season!

    The last episode was very nice, with nakuru XD without the glasses of course=p Usami is my favourite character~ you love your meganes XD

    • wieselhead

      Haha I see I have an interesting taste, huh? Well, its no problem for me thx for reading my stuff.
      When I don’t agree with a review because the author is only bashing I stop reading halfway.

      They mainly showed Kanade doing her well thought pranks, the beach episode was really funny.
      Her sexy fake moaning there was hilarious *lol*

      A second season would be well deserved I guess a lot of people liked this show, its fun ^_^

      Hey she’s beautiful with and without glasses ;p I don’t like every girl with glasses, only when the glasses are giving them more cuteness, like Hanekawa or Saya.
      I don’t like a strict look 🙂

    Hmmm, so it’s an ecchi show that might be worth watching? Those aren’t very common! I’ve seen some interesting screenshots from this series xD
    Might give it a try ^^

    I really enjoyed Mayo Chiki, it was consistently funny and had good animation. My favourite character was Kanade, I loved her devilish schemes.
