"I guess for most US residents this wouldn't be suitable for their kids, it isn't a kids story... it is very much an adult story. And that is NOT saying it is 'too sexy' it is saying it is really the story of an adults memories...from a science fiction characters viewpoint. Tenchi Muyo is my all time favorite, but Mahoromatic has taken its place RIGHT BESIDE Tenchi Muyo... and in a different sense. This is a really great story in anime. And if you follow the nuances within the basic story, you will see just what I mean. It has romance and a very dark oversoul to it that keeps one in suspense as to what the focus on the days of youth has to do with what is going on, until the very end... There is only one other anime event that really touched me as emotionally and that was the scene with Ryoko and Tenchi in the final scene of Tenchi Universe... but the scene with Mahoro and Saguru in the final scene of Mahoromatic was a real gripping moment. All in all the mood appears light-hearted and young and adventurous all through the series... to those that glance only casually. This was a real surprise. Almost as romantically baroque as Wolf's Rain in android sci-fi clothing... GET THIS, you won't be sorry, if you really want great anime in your collection!"
