Storyline

Mahoro, a female combat android, had an excellent track record working for the military organization Vesper. However, while on one mission, her creator is killed, and despite it not being her fault, she feels a terrible guilt. Due to her limited lifespan, she's decomissioned and taken out of combat, allowing her to expend her energy at a slower rate while living a civilian life. She decides to repay her creator by taking care of his son, Suguru, working as a maid at the boy's residence. The two get along wonderfully, but Mahoro constantly finds herself at odds with others in Suguru's life; the most bizarre of which being his lecherous high school teacher. To complicate matters further, Mahoro's past comes back to haunt her, as adversaries from her days at Vesper return with the intent to fight her. Through it all, Mahoro does her best to live as happy a life as she can, knowing that she has less than a year before her lifespan ends. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Mahoro Ando: [upon finding Suguru's collection of "adult" magazines] I think that dirty thoughts are very bad. And you want to know what else I think? I think that women's breasts are important vessels which exist to provide nourishment for babies, and should never be looked at lewdly by a young male person. I am certain that your mother taught you that important lesson when she raised you, and yet there you are looking at women's breasts inside a dirty magazine with lewdness in your eyes. I understand the ...

Ecchi nano wo ikenai to omoimasu!
21 January 2005 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

I strongly agree! This is another masterpiece from Gainax next to Evangelion. For once, a decent title and story, and very funny too! A great story about a war machine in the form of a lovely young lady, who defend the world from invading forces, now has 398 days left to go, she decides to spend it working as a maid, and conscience for a kind but PERVERTED teenager. Well not that perverted, let's just say he collects adult material like porn. And the supporting characters are also cool, especially that teacher, who is FAR MORE PERVERTED AND MORE OF A DEPRAVED TEACHER. Shame on her. Anyways, I am glad to say it is good, but it is not suitable for all ages, violence and useless nudity. Good for young adults, and I must say that Mahoro is one kind girl, and pure, I just like her saying Ecchi nano wo ikenai to omoimasu, which means perversion is not good, or something. Recommneded for 18 and above, sorry those below 15.

One of the funniest moments in this show is when Shikijo-sensei says "what are you all doing here? Could it be that you are having a sex party without me? HAHAHAHAHAHA!
