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.

Very lucky boys come across or find androids that help out in their daily lives. With romantic feelings brewing between man and machine, lots of humor and a little bit of ecchi are surely involved. If you liked one check out the other.
Both these romantic comedies involve college students who, by accident, ended up living with female robots. They have to teach the robots about the world, live with them, and even learn lessons from the robots. And of course, both have ecchi and romance.
Both of these hilarious comedies have a somewhat naiive college student coming in contact and eventually living with a robot. Both have quite a few ecchi moments but also have a romantic feel to them, complete with the bittersweet moments. At the same time, both make you ponder some deep issues.
If you liked one, the other is a great choice!
She cooks, she cleans, and is a lethal fighting machine. Mahoromatic, former Vesper battle android, has chosen to give up her weapons, extending her remaining life from 37 to 398 days. As Misato Suguru's maid, she fights battles of another sort, fending off an amorous teacher on one hand, ecchi magazines on the other. Can Mahoro save Suguru's innocence?
Hand Maid May and Mahoromatic are both about robot maids. One is obviously a robot because she's only a couple inches tall, the other is trying to hide the fact that she's a robot. Both were manufactured by a secret agency and placed into their current positions: one by accidental mail order, the other by request. Both would wish to be human.
Although the fan service levels are high (yes, android T&A abound), there's one episode (the beach/hot spring episode of course, if I recall correctly) where they "get it out of their system" and the rest of the series actually tries to tell a good story and do some engaging character development. Surprisingly high quality anime from what could easily have been a pure ecchi romp fest.
Sawamura Seiji is the most notorious delinquent at his high school -- always getting into fights and causing problems, leaving him single and unlucky with the ladies. After another long day of rejection, Seiji discovers that the love of his life might have finally appeared, but in the unlikeliest of places... his right hand?! Now, in addition to dealing with daily fights and the gossip of his classmates, Seiji must handle a new problem of embarassing proportions: Kasugano Midori, a pretty young girl in place of his hand, who happens to have fallen in love with him!
Both Hand Maid May and Midori Days include a main female character who is smaller than your average woman. Although the main male characters are very different, the same kind of humor is apparent in both series.
Hand Maid May and Midori Days have one thing in common: both of the main characters start off in the same place in life and both have a boyfriend... sort of.
They have the same sort of atmosphere so I think it's a good match.
Otaru Mamiya is just an ordinary teenage boy living on Terra 2: a planet inhabited by only men, on which women have been replaced by lifelike yet emotionless robots called 'marionettes.' But his life changes forever when he meets Lime, a spunky marionette with the mind of a child and--amazingly enough--the emotions of one as well! Soon, the demure Cherry and the outgoing Bloodberry join him as well, but he'll need all their help if he is to stop the evil Faust, ruler of Gartland, from taking over their beloved kingdom of Japoness!
Saber J is absolutely a great series for any Hand Maid May fans. In addition, for fans, Megumi Hashibara has a key role in this series and sings both the opening and closing themes.
Saber J is a lot of fun and I would totally recommend it.
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?
Both Hand Maid May and Love Hina are good harem-style animes (1 guy, many girls). Both of them have a little ecchi in the show (of the two, Love Hina seems to be a bit more ecchi). Both protagonists (Keitaro Urashima and Kazuma Saotome) have their own *favorite* girls (Naru Narusegawa and May respectively). Although each protagonist has a favorite girl, those girls find an unusually large amount of competition when it comes to their respective guys. Naru seems to be characterized by her much more reserved feelings toward her love. May's character, however, is much more naive and and has her mind set on serving her guy the best she can. Both anime's have several parallels, making them a good pair to watch together.
A classic anime theme of 1 boy living with/near/around an assortment of beautiful women that are all in love with him. Many misadventures follow, until the "hero" ends up with the girl of his dreams.
