So, Greencine sent me the first DVD of Hanaukyo Maid Team La Verite, and I'm getting interested.
Quite frankly, I like Taro...he deals with the situation better than I thought a lot of other harem anime protagonists would have (and, quite frankly, me at 14) .
And, I think I got a handle on the story, too...it's pretty much a "feudal-lord-in-training" story told via a harem anime, with lots and lots and lots of fan service. And, it tells the story pretty well, as Taro learns how to handle each member of the staff appropriately-never a push over, never as a friend, but as their leader.
And, Steve, I fully agree...Taro's grandfather is a pervert of legend...and needs major therapy.
