Shonen Maid Series Review

It only just recently occurred to me that I hadn't actually done a series wrap up on this anime after finishing it. Overview: Chihiro's mother dies and he is left alone until Madoka, a relative, shows up to take him in. Not wanting to rely on the kindness of others, Chihiro becomes a live in … Continue reading Shonen Maid Series Review

Shonen Maid Episode 11

Review: It's getting hard to review this because just saying it is sweet over and over is a little repetitive. So, it is still sweet, but I'm going to offer some criticism this time. Episode 10 brought a real sense of impending drama with the 'revelation' of Chihiro's grandmother (though it was really doubtful anyone … Continue reading Shonen Maid Episode 11

Shonen Maid Episode 10

Review: This was probably one of my favourite episodes so far. Not a lot happens other than a grave visit but it feels like a lot of the plot threads and character developments have come together in this episode. It wasn't as light or amusing as other episodes but took a more serious tone and … Continue reading Shonen Maid Episode 10

Shonen Maid Episode 9

Review: What can you say? The show continues to be adorable is illogical. Why you would meet someone for tea and talk with them for a whole afternoon, and discuss meeting again when you haven't. even asked their name makes no sense. It feels in part like they are wanting to look at the deeper … Continue reading Shonen Maid Episode 9

Shonen Maid Episode 8

Review: This episode didn't really do much of anything. I didn't dislike it, but I also can't really think of anything particularly good about it. The characters keep doing what they do and it is still super sweet. We see Chihiro and Madoka learning to ice-skate, celebrating new year's, and the usual cleaning routine. That's … Continue reading Shonen Maid Episode 8

Shonen Maid Episode 7

Review: This week the episode felt a little stronger and the relationship between Chihiro and Madoka got to be explored from a different angle as Madoka came to school as Chihiro's guardian. Throw in some self-exploration by Chihiro as he tries to determine what he's interested in being in the future and the whole episode … Continue reading Shonen Maid Episode 7

Shonen Maid Episode 6

Review: First we get a visit from an idol who would like to not wear shorts anymore. Of course Chihiro's common sense view of the world and general practical nature turn all of this around and everyone is happy. Somehow this segues into a discussion about Madoka's upcoming birthday and the rest of the episode … Continue reading Shonen Maid Episode 6
