"Hanaukyo Maid Team is a series about a boy, age never given though I'm guessing mid to late teens from his maturity if not stature, named Taro Hanaukyo who after the death of his mother finds himself the head of the Hanauhko family after his grandfather ups and leave. He is instantly taken to the families manision filled with beautiful but obessive maids wanting to serve him. Thus let the hillarity begin. You have to wonder sometimes though who exactly is the master, Taro or the maids.
Review time. Maid Team starts out with genuanlly Echii episode but it quickly simmers down, make no mistake there is still quiet a bit of nudity and sexual situations so you'll want to keep this one out of sight from the kiddies and from women if you want to keep living. However the slight perviness aside it's a rather light hearted and innocent story that's rather enjoyable story. The Characters are all likeable and have their own personality, some of which are rather unquic. The story line, is pretty basic with only one big turn that might take you by surprise. The animation is smooth and stream line. The humor that's makes up the series is though the basic gags go the next step of those gags making them as funny as they were when they were first used. The voice acting could have used some minor tweeks but nothing to serve or annoying. The Music is average anime fair, which means enjoyable enough to listen to. Prety much everything is about dead on though not exactly perffect, Id give it 4.5 if I could but can't sorry.
As for the flaws, there really aren't any beside it being to short to go into more detail on eah characters.
In the end Hanaukyo Maid Team is an enjoyable series just short of perfection and worth the buy."
Fantasy anime is wonderful

"Taro Hanaukyo is a young boy who has inherited a vast family fortune and more importantly, the near hundreads of employees working at the family mansion. While dressed and referred to nominally as maids, there are discrete albert sometimes unusual departments for most of the employees (including Defence, Science, Catering, etc.). Presumably the various extensive projects in the house pay for most of its expenses."
