Oshiete Re: Maid
Reviewer: Aaron Murphy 10/21/2010

Review:
Akito didn't quite realize what he was getting into when he agreed to train four peculiar maids who had already failed their traditional schooling. Their inability to perform certainly wasn't for a lack of trying however, it's just that each one has a unique quirk than kept them from succeeding as a maid. Whereas Akari can't seem to stop breaking everything she touches, Laila's too often a bitch, Shiraha is more suited to being a bodyguard or assassin and Philine is just a bit too ditzy about everything. But while their training to be competent maids continues, that's not the only task Akito has. For a maid needs to be able to fulfill all her master's wishes, and that means he must start training them in the special "night service" as well. He just doesn't quite know how to get started down that sordid path, but luckily for him all his lovely maids seem to have the same thing in mind!
 
This is both a good and bad thing for Akito, for while the desire is there, he wants to take things slow. That sort of gets thrown out the window after Shiraha basically ties him up and rapes him, but that's just how it goes for poor Akito. It seems the desire of his maids keeps being put in front of his own as they constantly hound him to give them some love. Whether it's at his palatial mansion or on the beach, he may be apprehensive to give into their desires but he's always willing in the end. But can his body hold out against the constant attack on his sensibilities? He can only hope.
 
Akito's constant resistance is just one of the reasons Oshiete Re: Maid is a really cute and fun hentai title. The women are the ones pushing to have sex while he tries to dissuade them before finally giving in. It gives the whole title a much lighter feel than you typically get, and the inclusion of some comedic elements really brings the whole thing together. Especially with Shiraha, as she constantly pulls out guns or swords and has some great deadpan deliveries. This also helps alleviate the fact that there is largely no plot to speak of, with Akito simply having sex with one maid after another until the end.
 
This highlights both the positive and negative aspects of Oshiete Re: Maid, with its fun atmosphere, loveable maids and fairly strong technicals being pitted against it's not so titillating sex scenes. It's sad to see because it could have been a great title if only the naughty bits hadn't been so pedestrian. Considering these young girls start out as virgins, a fact Akito is constantly surprised by, all the sex is simple and slow, with the usual motions and not much else.  At least until the final scene gives us a little group action anyway, but even it isn't as sexy as it should have been.  The diverse personalities between the maids does relieve the tedium of it, but for the most part it's all somewhat boring. I'm sure the overcensoring wasn't doing it any favors, but that can only hinder a title so much. It's a lack of sexual quality that's the real culprit here, and it's the biggest thorn in Oshiete Re: Maid's side.
 
With a sweet setup, loveable characters and technical success, the ingredients were there. Oshiete Re: Maid just didn't go quite far enough with the perverseness and variety of the hentai scenes. It's still a fun title that's worth watching, it just may not have as much of a titillating effect as one would like.  
 
Miscellaneous:
Shiraha is really the best. A bodyguard / assassin maid who's willing to force herself on you for your own satisfaction? It doesn't get much better than that.
