Movie Reviews

A tried and true formula
Anime Lover | Parma, OH | 12/20/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"this series is a mix of Negima and Maburaho (both of which are great series). it is the story of one young man who is trying to get by day to day until a beautiful transfer student arrives. and not to mention she is living with him and his three younger sisters as a maid. but there are secrets as is it appears that the sisters and Ayuma (the maid) are actually witches and he is the only one in the family that does not appear to have any magic (and when he finds out they pull out these HUGE memory erasure hammers and whack him with them). And the reason Auyma is there is she is under a curse and must make him a man....and bring out any magic he may have.

It is a tried and true formula for a harem comedy...throw in a cute rival for Auyma (also a witch), a witch hunter, a bunch of goofy friends and crazy mail order devices and there you is great with the dubbing, the animation is awesome and it gets good at the right times...."

"it was your typical girls trying to get the guy anime but has funny action as well. a little like maburaho in that there is amgic and just one main guy. the animation is nice and the dubbing is well done. there's plenty of laughs to keep it interesting."
Funny but Terribly Unoriginal

(4 out of 5 stars)

"If I were to judge this series based purely on how much I enjoyed this opening volume, it would be receiving incredibly high marks. From start to finish I really found myself laughing at this series. The characters are very nicely drawn, the pacing is well done and the jokes are over the top but still very funny.

While terribly funny and entertaining, it's just not original enough to get high marks. If you're willing to look past that though, what you're going to find is a highly entertaining series that will absolutely have you rolling.
