Episode 7

Chihiro has been acing all of his exams despite being way too busy with cleaning and cooking while not having a desk at home. It's open house, and Chihiro has to write an essay about his future plans, and Madoka give him some ideas. In the end, being a hotel baron is what he strives to be given how smart he is already. The day comes, and most of Yuji's large family is in attendance, while Madoka and Keiichiro show up. Then Chihiro and Madoka talk with the teacher with Chihiro trying to make it look like Madoka was helping out when in truth, Chihiro was doing all the work. So as an investment for his future, Chihiro is given a desk. That's another nice and laid-back episode there all going to show that Chihiro is such a hard worker, but there are some social aspects that need some work.

He could work in a five-star hotel as a cleaner, but he has bigger dreams than that.

I love this show! I think it's a great show that is so under-rated (only 7.09 average score on MAL?!). This, My hero academia & Netoge are the only current season shows I'm watching on Funi, and it looks like Shounen Maid has the least amount of comments here out of all 3. I hope more people would watch this so it would be popular enough to get a season 2! I enjoy it a lot, it is so cute and sweet.. I love Chihiro & Madoka's interaction.. I also like Keiichirou.

Episode 8

It's winter break, which means time for Chihiro to do some heavy-duty cleaning, and his friends are chipping in to help get the mansion all nice and tidy. Hino knew that he was going to be made to wear the frilly apron, so he brought his own. And with everybody's help, the place is clean for Christmas. Then it's off to the mountains to ring in the new year at the family cabin, and as much as Chihiro would love to clean the place, a caretaker has that all taken care of, well except for cleaning the dishes after dinner. They have ice skating, and then they listen to a concert by the Uchoten Boys to ring in the new year. That was a cute episode there, and certainly it helps that all of the boys are involved this time, while Miyako continues to try and learn things.

Those boys make quite a formidable maid team. Too bad the boys don't exactly take it well.

Episode 8: The ending scene was very sweet & touching when Chihiro & Madoka were sitting outside together on the back porch all bundled up waiting for the first sunrise of the new year, while at the same time reminiscing how both of them used to watch the first sunrise together with Chiyo (Chihiro's mom/Madoka's sister). They promised to do it again next new year (and every new year afterwards..). They will make it their new year's tradition in remembrance of Chiyo.

Shonen Maid EP 8 / "The Devil Scoffs When You Talk of Next Year"

A very nice funny and touching episode.

Chihiro gets the vaccuum he wanted for Christmas and goes on a major cleaning spree, But Hino wants to play and try to help with cleaning or not?

Madoka gets assigned to just cleaning his room only

Hino and friends come over to help Miyako also tries to help but she hast yet been trained good.

But everything gets done. Madoka bakes cookies and says the kitchen is clean except he threw out utensials bowls cooking sheets garbarge..

For new Year's Madoka / Chihiro / Keiichiro / Miyako and Hino go to the Takatori cabin to give Chihiro a break who is actuuaky kinda sad seeing a caretaker cleans prpare food etc w/o ever seeing the person.

They go Ice Skating which Chihiro never did nor not much either.

Chi is figidity because dinner is made but they finally let him make tea and clean the dishes. Later New Years they watch the Uchouten boys.concert

Next morning Chi wakes up early and finds Madoka on the back deck to watch the first sunrise. Chi did this with his mom too who did with it Madoka before Chi was born. Another nice nod to Chihiro's mom

Chiyo with brother than her son / very nice

Hino made me laugh a lot this week, and the ending made me tear up a little. This was a good episode, and it's why I like a good SOL show, because of the ups and downs of everyday life providing momentum and emotion, and this show gets them across pretty well.

Keiichiro is getting to take a lot of photos for memories and future blackmail. He got Chi and Madoka panicking about learning to skate and he got them after they all ate with the aim of getting fat together for the new year.

Oh and it seems to me like Hino is a bit like Keiichiro. He's got those sneaky PA characteristics. He's even helping to organise Chi and Madoka's lives plus he can foresee how some things will turn out and be prepared for them.

Episode 9

The mansion sure has become a popular place to visit. First, Yuji's little sister Hana runs away to the mansion after things fall out between her and Yuji, and Madoka hid her so that she could stay the night at the mansion. The next day, she becomes a magical girl with that outfit Madoka made for her, and then she makes up. But that puts Madoka way behind schedule on what he is supposed to be doing, and in the meantime Ryuji makes a visit wanting to play games with Yuji. Chihiro goes out to meet with that old lady that gave him the idea to about Madoka's present and Ryuji and Yuji tail him only to get caught when Ryuji ordered a jumbo parfait, and they had to clean as penalty. That was another nice episode there. Hana acted all cute, while that conversation between Chihiro and the old lady is nice to listen to.

Here is Magical Girl Hana, and ironically her outfit resembles that worn by Madoka Kaname, and made by Madoka. Yep, that's Madoka making a Madoka-like outfit.

Shonen Maid EP 9 / One Good Turn Deserves Another

What a very good episode / so many feelings / family life lessons / just the right touch of comedy / and the reveal you knew was coming.

Shonen Maid has to be the most underrated / overlooked / misunderstood / endearing animes this season

This has tto be he top 2 / 3 episodes . They could have stopped with ana and put blank air on but no a big reveal in the 2nd half just nails it.

Hana ( Hino's sister ) has a fight with him and goes to Chi's place But after Hino comes over Madoka hides her and Hino trells Chi he looked at her friendship book Madoka makes Hana a dress and later stays withn Chi Next morning Hino comes over and Hana has her new dress on but runs away again Madoka gives her a wand because she wanted a magic girl dress and Madoka teels her it will let you do the thing you want to do most which was to say sorry to Hino.

BTW Madoka is a great person despite being eccentric.

Ryuji comes over to play video games with Hino but he is still tied up at home . But once Hino coms over Chi says he has to go out so they foloow and Chi meets up up with Lady X ( .Kazusa Takatori ) They have Tea and Chi thanks her for helping give him idea for Madoka present. Chi catches the 2 spies

But then Kazusa knows Chihiro is Chiyo son and he likes him but is there trouble ahead as she is thinking about taking him in. I have mixed feelings about that . I think she didnt want Chiyo to leave and get that. But Madika is really close to Chihiro and Chiyo was closer to Madoka with that promise.

Kudos to Yoshiko Sakakibara who plays Kazusa and her long storied anime career /She gets my respect!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoshiko_Sakakibara

HANA just melted my heart



Kazusa a good person but maybe trouble ahead

It was super cute with Hana.

It's looking like Chihiro's mother, Chiyo was given an ultimatum between choosing to be with someone she loved who got her pregnant or staying in the family. She chose her love which either didn't work out in the end or he died.

Episode 10

That's one way to play with cats without the allergic reaction, but the problem is that it left quite a big mess with allergens everywhere and wearing the mask isn't exactly aesthetic. As much as he loves those cats, his cat allergies leaves a mess of things and Chihiro is giving his room an extreme cleaning. And then it's off to mother's grave as it was one year since Chiyo passed away. The grave is dirty, and in comes Chihiro to clean it up. Also there is that old lady who is finally introduced as Chihiro's grandmother Kazusa. That was a cute episode there seeing Madoka so attached to cats like that, as well as Chihiro recalling his parents as he never really knew his father having died shortly after being born.

Nice try, Madoka. But wearing a mask just to cuddle with those cats isn't going to fly.
