The future is dull and bleak without the existence of Steel Angels. The rain pours hard and heavy on more days than not and has an acidity to it that keeps most tucked away in their homes. Life is especially dull in the home of High School students Kurumi, Saki, Excelia and Karinka. When Kurumi comes home from a school club meeting with a blush to her face and a lovestruck expression, all the girls gather around, prodding for information. Kurumi has fallen head over heels for a boy named Michihito Kagura, and with the support of her friends she gathers the courage to tell him. But is Kurumi's love strong enough to withstand what fate has in store for her?

Together with her friends Aika and Alice, apprentices of rival companies, and their seniors Akira and Athena, they train their skills as gondoliers, meeting new people and learning new things about the city each day.
Both of the shows are, for lack of a better word, braindead to watch. They have the very lax and peaceful atmopshere, where the show thrives on just mellowing out the viewer with not much at all. They are both a very relaxing watch. If you liked one, you'd like the other.

SAK: Zero brings an interesting end to the Steel Angel K series, and in a similar fashion so does Mahoromatic 2, particularly the last episode which is also set in the future and also shows how the characters in the main story-line have lived on their lives. If you are looking for that great feeling of 'completeness' when a series ends, like there is in SAK: Zero then you will most likely enjoy Mahoromatic 2 as-well.
