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

A fun series that provides laughs and drama
1 March 2019 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

Mahoro is a combat android who has given solid service for 'Vesper' and organisation fighting off alien attack. She only has a limited lifetime left and is given the freedom to decide what to do with the final 398 days of her life... she decides to act as maid to Suguru Misato, the son of a senior officer who was killed by collateral damage caused by her. She gets involved with his life and friends but her past hasn't been entirely left behind as old foes come to fight her.

This anime series is rather fun; the premise may be a little odd but it works. There are plenty of laughs to be had, some tense moments and is genuinely poignant; especially towards the end as the clock counts down to the end of Mohoro's life. There is also a fair amount of nudity which does mean it might not be suitable for some viewers who would otherwise enjoy it. The animation is solid and, while the character designs are a bit dated now, I still thought they looked good. Overall a fun blend of comedy, fan service and drama.

These comments are based on watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.
