• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

You know how when you watch anime and they have a little nudity, you think "Why can't there be more porn in this show?" Then you watch hentai, and you think "Why can't the story be better?" I just saw Hanaukyo Maids, and I don't know whether to jack off or watch politely.

a.k.a.: Hanaukyo Maid Team, Maid in Hanaukyo

Taro Hanaukyo, a young boy grieving for his mother, has been summoned to his grandfather's estate for reasons unknown. Upon arrival, he discovers several facts that are to change his life drastically.

1. His grandfather is rich. Obscenely rich. Richie Rich rich.

2. His grandfather has retired and left the entire estate in his name.

3. The entire estate staff consists of hundreds of attractive young women in maid uniforms.

It is that last point that that really causes some concern for poor Taro, as it is rapidly demonstrated to the viewer that he has a violent allergic reaction to contact from women. Unfortunately for him, the young ladies of the Hanaukyo estate are zealously dedicated to their job, be it organizing his schedule, assisting his studies, bathing with him in the dozens, assisting him with his zipper in the washroom....

Fortunately, there is also Mariel, the de facto head maid and apparently, the only woman Taro can be near without turning interesting colours.

The series was cut short due to difficulties with the production company. Only twelve episodes were aired out of a planned eighteen, and only three more were made and included on the DVD release. It was rebooted in a second series, Hanaukyo Maid Tai: La Verite. In this series, Taro is merely put off by too much attention from women, though Mariel remains the exception. It also introduces a dramatic plot line around Mariel, and formally introduces Yashima Sanae[1] and her strong loyalty to Konoe Tsurugi, head of the Security division of the maids.

I repeat: the entire house staff are maids.

Note: If an episode number below doesn't mention which season it's from, it's the first. If it's from the second season it will say La Verite.

Tropes used in Hanaukyo Maid Tai include:

  1. Yashima Sanae originally appeared in the opening credits of the original series (but only appeared in episodes 14 and 15), with a slightly different appearance (blue hair, light skin) and without being given a name.
