Taro Hanaukyo's mother dies and leaves him alone, with one final wish: to go to Tokyo and find his grandfather, who disapproved of her marriage. When he arrives, however, he discovers that his grandfather has passed away and left his estate (maids and all) toyoung Taro himself! The problem? With the exception of his mother, he is allergic to females and their advances, something the maids offer plentifully in their attempts to help him succeed in everything from going to the bathroom to passing math class!
Aoi Sakuraba, heir to the Sakura department store, has only one thing on her mind-- her beloved. Betrothed from a very young age, she has been in love with him, Kaoru Hanabishi, ever since. After Kaoru left his family, their bethrothal was nullified. Aoi sets out to find him. Will they be able to stand against the barriers that will try to keep them apart?
Ikko is a Buddhist monk in training who works at his grandmother’s temple with six nuns -- six very attractive nuns. Though lazy, weak and unmotivated to learn the skills of a monk, amazingly strong holy powers sleep inside of Ikko that are triggered only by the awakening of his, shall we say, lust for worldly delights. A vengeful spirit is haunting your home? A flash of pantsu, and Ikko's your man. But therein lies danger; what really is the secret behind his mysterious powers? And how many hits to the head from angry, semi-naked nuns can a man take?
Hanaukyo Maids has a lot in common with Amaenaide yo. Both are obviously part of the harem genre where ecchi and slapstick humor are the main focus. Even the flow of the plot (which doesnt matter that much :p) is quite alike.
Having failed to earn admission to a university, Hideki Motosuwa has moved to the big city, determined to study his hardest for next year's exams. However, an unusual distraction presents itself one unsuspecting day in the form of Chii, a robotic young girl that has been discarded in the trash. In a world where an increasing number of people turn to these 'persocoms' for company, the bonds and limits of human relationships are tested as flesh manages to fall in love with the machine itself...
Chobits and Hanaukyo Maids share quite a few similarities. They both have typical romance comedy elements (ecchi included), and use a very similar male lead. While the humor in Hanaukyo Maids is brought about differently, both have a familiar feeling to them.
Keitaro Urashima is somewhat of a failure. In order to fulfill a promise he made to a girl fifteen years ago, he has tried time and again to get into Tokyo U but has never managed to pass the exam. However, fate smiles upon him and he ends up working for his aunt, managing an all-girls dorm! Living with the feral Kaolla, the timid Shinobu, the sake-loving Mitsune, the blade mistress Motoko and the punch-happy Naru, can Keitaro keep his focus and keep his promise? And will he ever end up meeting that girl from his past?
Love Hina: the harem comedy classic! The chances that you haven't seen this yet are slim, but if you haven't: don't put it off any longer!
Hanaukyo Maids uses a lot of components that can also be found in Love Hina after all. Be it the male lead, the crazy comedy or the lighthearted romance; if you liked Hanaukyo Maids there are plenty of reasons to pick up Love Hina.
Did you think the chaos at the Hinata Inn is over? No way! Love Hina Again introduces a new girl--Kanako--who has a big crush on Keitaro and magical powers on her side! Will Naru finally confess her feelings to Keitaro, or will he literally be 'charmed' away?
Hanaukyo Maid Team and Love Hina Again are both harem comedies filled with lots of ecchi. Yet there is not really any perverseness in these anime and the humor is very circumstantial. On top of that the characters are also very alike (a warrior, a scientist, etc). If you liked Love Hina Again you'll probably love Hanaukyo Maid Team and visa versa.
