Kimi ga Aruji de Shitsuji ga Ore de

Due to family troubles, Ren Uesugi and his sister, Mihato, leave their home. They end up moving to the city but find themselves with a lack of money. Somehow they are able to find work in the form of the Kuonji family's mansion, being employed as servants to the three sisters of the Kuonji family: Shinra, Miyu, and Yume. Being a servant also associates Ren with the mansion's additional servants and the Kuonji sisters' friends.

This anime is very similar with the likes of Hayate no Gotoku with the exceptions of a more serious and adult tone. Though filled with humorous scenes, funny situations and quite a few perverted shots, this shows focus tends to be that of character development more than anything. Especially for the main characters, whos continuous strive to overcome their past childhood experiences drives them to push forward toward a better future. This aspect of the show gives it a lot more depth than I had originally anticipated; allowing for deeper interactions, plot tone and a richer context. It shows that a good amount of work went into creating the show and its development was planed and well thought out. Even the animation style itself seems to have been designed to reflect these aspects, giving it a richer appeal and making it more enjoyable to watch. The music, however, plays into a completely different aspect of the show. I must point out, that while these aspects of character and story thickness are present, the anime itself really seems two sided. On one hand, the show has a great depth and good development of story-line and characters, while on the other, the creators couldnt help but also throw in a lot of comedy and fan-service. Even the ending credits caters to these aspects, with the scenes and the up-beat music playing together, only reminding us that, while a good show must be well developed, it can also include the fun stuff too. Because of this, the show quickly takes off and becomes very enjoyable. As such, if you like Hayate no Gotoku, however, could stand for something a lot better and with a sense of direction, then this show is a recommended watch.
