I don't know what's more disturbing... the use of the Laughing Man image, the maids, or the links off that page... Neutral

Shocked Well, I hope they paid those models good money for their gig. I don't know what to say. I for one think I'm reaching the threshold of my heterosexual drive: my maid fantasies may be turning into nightmares.

GAINAX are gods! Crying or Very sad
And don't you dare say they're losing it; there's still Bushilord to think about. Rolling Eyes

And in all honestly, He is My Master is really funny, and it's played almost like a sitcom. Each episode is always kept up in high energy with lots of hilarity without being dull.

Jeez, imagine if Gainax attempted that in the US. We'd have right-wing censors and soccer moms up in arms about "utterly distructive fetishes" and other such things. Wink

Well if they think this is going to help sell DVD's I think they will need more help, basically just because this anime is absolutely horrible.

AFAIK He Is My Master is very popular in Japan. But surprising that they had this after the Kobayashi incident and all (well, as long as they just kept the maidness to the outfit)

I just don't find it to be funny at all and for a comedy that's not a good quality. Also the characters are really annoying and I don't like the premise of the show.

The booth babes are of age, the girls on HIMM are not. I know they're fictional, but it still bothers me.

But I could be biased because I'm a high school girl, I don't know. Rolling Eyes

Hey, I'm an 'innocent little High-school girl' too, but personally I kinda find this humorous and cute. Let's just hope no one kidnaps those 30-something maids and starts their own harem.
