Some thoughts on the latest episode of Maid Wars.
I think it’s really cool they got an actual Russian VA to voice the Russian woman.
I like that they did an episode about MMA given MMA in Japan has a long history of being fixed. So I thought that was cool.
Lots of Hajime no Ippo references in this episode, which is kinda weird because boxing isn’t MMA. But I didn’t mind it.
Funniest part of the episode is when the manager is begging for her life while naked and then the person says “Why are you naked? I didn’t ask you to strip.” Speaking of manager, her character reminds me of the producer Kotaro from Zombieland Saga. Both are scumbag assholes right off the onset and just like Kotaro, they’ll probably eventually explain why the manager is the way she is. Personally, I think the producer is funnier because his VA was doing his Okabe voice, and the image of the main protagonist of Steins Gate producing a zombie idol group is outstanding.
Overall, pretty good. This episode and last episode have been somewhat of a step down compared to episode 1, as I was hoping the show would have more action scenes involving the maids. Instead, it’s them trying to pay off their debts doing various odd jobs, which we already saw in Zombieland Saga. And in my opinion, Zombieland Saga did it better.
As an aside, I was shocked to find out that the person who voices Ranko also does the voice of Mikoto Misaka, one of the best tsunderes of all time. Talk about range.
