As sick as this show is I actually like it. I'd be shocked if it was brought over. I'm sure the manga is even more insane.

All my friends and I love this show. We cannot picture it not being licensed in America anytime soon. (On my radio show I even use a sound effect of Maid Guy going "Ku ku ku!" to all of our delight Very Happy.)

Hahaha!!! Good one. Found myself doing it as well. See this show is sort of good old fashioned crazy humor.

The "ku ku ku" is a in joke for the MMO'ing viewers of the show: http://en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Leet#​Kekeke

Why is it that every extra DVD involves "unairable on TV due to unethical violations"?! Whatever happened to just expanding on the story? Imagine if American TV does that for their DVD boxsets. Laughing

Unethical violations? Hmmm...considering what I have seen in 'Maid Guy', I could only wonder what it could have been.

Most likely a hot springs episode. Based off what members have said about this series, I highly doubt this series will be released into North America any time soon.

I like it, but, I never really saw what was so bad about it. I might just be desensitized to offensive material. Would be nice to have it released here, and if Dokuro-Chan can be licensed, I think this can too. Though, I get the feeling I wont ever see a US release of Kodomo no Jikan. The manga would have been good, but I think naming it Nymphet kinda made it seem worse than it was. Should have kept a child's time.

Plus Madhouse animated this, and almost everything they've done in the past couple have seen a US release, or are awaiting a US release date.

The show's comic gold, plain and simple. If only Jason Statham can play Kogarashi in a live-action version Laughing.

Hmm...I wonder what was said? But hey, there's always a possibility. Hell, folks thought 'RM' wasn't going to be picked up when 'Geneon' folded but look who decided to pick it up. If they can bring over the unlikely niche titles 'Dokoro-chan' and 'Punie', then there's a chance for 'Maid Guy'. If not, well...one can dream for the impossible.

You yourself said this series was qoute on quote "insane" as well as the image in the article. I'll never watch this show, but I am sure the creator is going to make some money off this dvd bundle.
