At first I passed over this one for a while. Had other shows to watch and things to do. Sadly I think I should have put it off even longer.
The Story  - A young girl named Arashiyama works at a maid-caffe and wants to be a detective. Yep thats it, prepare to have your world rocked an huge amount of MEDIOCRITY! The caffe isn't really a "maid" caffe. Our Heroine is clutz with all the intelligence of a rock so detective is looking like a long shot. She is pursued by a guy with no real story, who she doen't know exist's unless it's to copy his homework, but her friend is head over heals for him. Oh guess what he doesn't notice that either...
I understand that this might have been done to add a certain charm to the show but it does not pull it off. A Love Triangle that doesn't get you to feel anything for those involved, an a frightning female friend who I can only think of as a unintresting Nijima (Shijou Saikyou No Deshi Kenichi) and a following cast of forgettable support and I have a hard time finding what to like here. Oh I forgot she's in love with her teacher, who veiws her as an academic speed bump.
Animation  - One of the Few good notes is the animation, while it's not a carbon copy of everything out there it is good.Lots of shades an background movment wich look great when a scence is outside. But thats it really... I feel I have to give this a high score because it's the only thing it really has going for it.
Music/Sound - The music is not for me intro is forgettable an haven't felt inclined to sit through an outro (I am a fan of Japanese music too.) But atleast the voice acting is good, nothing extreme or ground breaking but it all fits.
Characters  - There have been maybe 4 moments in the 7 episodes I have watched that have gotten me to smile (Less than 0.52 an episode). The only character you feel that you know a little bit about is the main, and I find that story boring.
Overall  - Now I can't say no one will like this anime. If you love Maids, or stupid women who somehow can't pull it off to atleast seem cute this might be for you. But it's going to make you work to enjoy it. This could have been good, But nothing fits. Is it a comedy thats not that funny? A Shoujo that only lightly touches on school life to the point that the longest scence are of the Lead getting in trouble for 5 min? A love story that consist's of She loves him but can't tell him, he loves her friend and can't tell her, while she loves the teacher who can't stand her. And it's about a much fun as it sounds to describe it.
I'm just not a fan, if you want funny go somewhere else, if you want a love story go somewhere else, If you'd like a story about a clutzy girl who overcomes the problems in her life to develope into a self sustained adult... Go somewhere else. In my opinion.
I rate this a 6 out of pity for what might have been.
overall score: 6/10
