''That's me, Maid Guy!''

By and large, a show about breasts. And maids. But not put together.

In the history of anime, there have been [[Anime/{{Mahoromatic}} robot maids]], [[Manga/HeIsMyMaster maids in debt]], and [[Manga/HanaukyoMaidTai teams of maids]]. A new kind of maid is here - the Maid Guy.

The [[{{GagBoobs}} ridiculously well-endowed]] Naeka Fujiwara and her brother Kousuke are the last heirs in line to their grandfather's humongous fortune. Naeka in particular, since her 18th birthday is approaching. In order to protect them until Naeka's 18th birthday, their grandfather gives them two live-in maids. The first is Fubuki, a fine example of a {{meido}} for Kousuke's tastes. The second...is Kogarashi, the Maid Guy. A monster of a man (in a ''dress'') whose idea of service to his master is very rough around the edges.

Throw in more side characters from Naeka's school, Maid Guy's beyond-superhuman abilities, and a whirlwind of comedy begins. The anime series aired in spring 2008 as a TwelveEpisodeAnime, followed by an [[{{OVA}} OVD]].
!!Tropes in ''Kamen no Maid Guy'' include:

* AmusingInjuries: Naeka's sword and Fubuki's nail bat regularly inflict pain upon Kogarashi. He survives.
* BadAss: Kogarashi certainly. Other characters have their moments of it.
%%* BattleButler
* BarbieDollAnatomy: Averted occasionally for the sake of Naeka's boobs, used straight all other times.
* TheBeastmaster: Kogarashi is shown summoning and directing ''tengu'' (Japanese crows)...to search for underwear. He even dresses as one in episode seven.
* {{Bishounen}}: Hendrick, Liz's older brother. He knows it and uses it to his advantage.
** Parodied in the diet episode when Kousuke slims down, complete with BishieSparkle and rose petals - then immediately returns to his ordinary weight after drinking soda.
* BlackComedyRape: There is little doubt of what Saki did to poor Naeka when trapped in Kogarashi's love-hotel-pit... her dishevelled clothes said it all.
* BrownNote: Maid Guy Voice, with the power to freeze anyone in place for 30 minutes.
* BrotherSisterIncest: Liz loves her brother way more than a little sister should. Hendrick's love of big breasts (breasts are big in this show) has made Liz very [[ACupAngst self-conscious]].
** Kousuke has also shown a surprising willingness to ogle Naeka when she and Fubuki get into compromising positions.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Kogarashi wears a dress, has the skill sets of a ninja, bodyguard, mathematician ''and'' top-class maid, but is shaky on the concept of "personal space", "restraint" or "metaphor". It makes his outbreaks of common sense all the more surprising.
* BuxomIsBetter: Much to the dismay of Liz, Naeka's friends and, because AllMenArePerverts, Naeka and Fubuki. In an episode Elizabeth's brother, Hendrick, wants to marry Naeka because of her fortune and huge breasts.
* CatchphraseInterruptus: One of Kogarashi's long speeches and finishing line of "That's me, Maid Guy!" is cut off by Fubuki once again smacking him in the head with a nail-bat.
* CallingYourAttacks: Kogarashi calls out the name of any ability he uses, just because he can.
* CharacterTitle: Potentially; the head {{Miko}} in Episode 10, who seems to have prior knowledge of Kogarashi, refers to him as 'Gai'.
* CharmPerson: Hendrick hypnotizes women with the power of his BishieSparkle. He has plans to build a harem of big-breasted women. Liz and Naeka are usually the only ones who can stop him.
* ComboPlatterPowers: Kogarashi has 37 senses and as many powers as are [[RuleOfFunny required by the comedy]].
%%* ComedicSociopathy
* CreditsRunningSequence: Every ending sequence, complete with {{gainaxing}}.
* DatePeepers: When Naeka goes to the festival with the Breast Fanclub Leader, her ThoseTwoGuys, the other two members of the fanclub, and both maids are watching the thing play out. The date is fake, but that doesn't stop them from thinking that Naeka may be in love with him.
* DietEpisode: Episode 6. After Kogarashi bothers Naeka about her small but constant weight gain, Naeka snaps and goes into an extreme diet, dragging Fubuki into it along the way. But soon enough, Naeka's diet methods get out of hand.
* DistaffCounterpart -- Apparently, there's a "Maid ''Gal''", a female counterpart who does the same kind of things Kogarashi does. Can't do it as well as he can, though.
* {{Dojikko}}: Fubuki's least favorite word. A large part of her character is overcoming her stigma that she's a "clumsy maid".
* EasyAmnesia: When the Breast Fanclub Leader falls down the stairs (and later gets hit by Fubuki's lantern), he's sent into a ConvenientComa, then reawakened by Naeka/Fubuki's breasts after the doctor melodramatically informs them there's no hope of him waking up.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Naeka.
* EveryEpisodeEnding: The countdown to Naeka's birthday.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: The Leader of the Breast Fanclub. That's all he ever goes by.
* EvilLaugh: Kogarashi's "Kukuku" ranks amongst the best ever for a ''hero.''
* {{Expy}}: Naeka of Kirie from ''Manga/GirlsBravo''. Both are brunette (with similar hairstyle), buxom and LustObject of male and female characters.
* {{Fanservice}}
* FanserviceWithASmile: All of episode nine. Eiko and Miwa ask Naeka and Fubuki, who have D-cup breasts, to infiltrate their cake shop's rival shop, which has terrible cakes, but all waitresses have huge D-cup breasts. Interestingly the owner, who far outsized the rest of the girls, was shown to be flat-chested, wearing fake breasts because she was insecure, and all the girls other than Naeka had breast implants.
%%* FestivalEpisode
* ForcedToWatch: Kogarashi uploads a virus into the camera bugs placed around the house by various parties. Anyone viewing the camera feed will get zapped with the Maid Guy Freeze Voice, which paralyzes every muscle in the body for thirty minutes, and then will be treated to a half-hour-long video of the local fishmonger's bathing.
%%* FuroScene
* GagBoobs: Naeka continuously. Just about every episode makes Naeka's chest size into a plot point. Especially episode two, which claims Naeka is failing her math class because there is an inverse ratio between math grades and chest size.
* {{Gainaxing}}: Naeka again and sometimes Fubuki. Also all the waitress from the episode 9.
* GeniusBruiser: Would you believe Kogarashi went to MIT? Not as a student; he ''taught high-level maths there''.
* GirlWithPsychoWeapon: Whenever Kogarashi does or says something particularly bad, Fubuki smashes him (usually in the face) with a [[WeaponOfChoice wooden bat with nails stuck in it]].
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: Kogarashi, on several occasions.
* GratuitousEnglish: Liz and her brother Hendrick. Also in the names of Kogarasi's powers and "Liieda!" (Leader).
--> '''Naeka:''' ''I feel so strong I could [[TemptingFate take on a bear]]!''
--> '''[[LiteralGenie Kogarashi]]:''' ''[[GratuitousEnglish Letsuu turaii]]!'' *[[BearsAreBadNews Cue Grizzly]]*
* GretzkyHasTheBall: While playing tennis, Arayashiki said "15 points for a home run!". Then again, she just knocked her partner out of the court.
%%* HeroicComedicSociopath: Kogarashi.
* HeyItsThatVoice: So [[{{Utawarerumono}} Hakuoro]] is now a batshit crazy maid. Well, at least he still has a mask on.
* HugeSchoolgirl: Arayashiki. When she first met Naeka, she thought she was a man. And after three years of training in the mountains... let's say that the bear was smaller and less muscular.
* InstantFanclub: Naeka breasts even have their own fanclub, a set of three lechers from the boy's kendo club, the "Naeka's Breasts Fanclub".
* ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne:
-->'''Kogarashi:''' So the [[{{Dojikko}} clumsy]] maid is easy too.
-->'''Fubuki:''' Who are you calling "clumsy"?
* JapanesePronouns: Kogarashi always, ''always'' uses ''kisama'' to refer to Naeka, even when he's complimenting her, indicating either a ''severe'' lack of respect for his master or a rougher-than-sandpaper personality.
** Hell, he uses ''kisama'' with nearly everyone.
* {{Jerkass}}: Kogarashi without even trying, and occasionally Naeka when she says things without thinking about the consequences first.
* KickTheDog: Half of Kogarashi's antics would get any normal person ''without'' superpowers thrown in '''jail.''' Though this allows us to cheer when Naeka and Fubuki kick the living daylights out of him for his stupidity. Of course, we all cheer for him anyway because he's the SociopathicHero.
* KingOfAllCosmos: According to ''Maid Guy'', God likes panty shots.
** He also loves FetishFuel. To the point where all his "miracles" only occur while the girl in question is fulfilling that fetish.
* LargeHam: Kogarashi's monologues, and ending lines.
%%* LoveLetterLunacy: Pretty much all of episode three.
* LethalChef: Naeka. This plays into two different situations -- once during the LoveLetterLunacy episode, once when she's a NurseWithGoodIntentions.
* MadeOfIron: Kogarashi really can survive a lot.
* MagicalGirlfriend: Parody. The romance aspect is averted, but Kogarashi either exhibits or inverts every other feature of the trope.
%%* MaleGaze
%%* MasterOfDisguise: Kogarashi again.
%%* MasterOfIllusion: Daydreaming Maid Guy Illusion, to be exact.
%%* MaskPower
%%* {{Meido}}: Played straight with Fubuki. Subverted and parodied with Kogarashi.
* MenCantKeepHouse: It's the two siblings who cannot keep house - the house is literally overflowing with garbage, they can't use their own beds, and they have an infestation of rats, crows and ''snakes''.
* {{Miko}}: The High Priestess of episode 10 is a deeply disturbing twist on this archtype, and the fact that she's voiced by ''Creator/KikukoInoue'' just makes it all the more awesome or horrifying... or both. Kousuke also demonstrates in this episode a Miko fetish to go with his Meido fetish.
%%* MonochromaticEyes -- Kogarashi yet again.
%%* NerfArm: Used, then subverted almost immediately afterwards in Episode 7. With a log.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: There seems to be no limit to the skills / abilities Kogarashi possesses.
* NinjaMaid: The entire concept of the series. Kogarashi has numerous abilities, from cooking & cleaning to USB connectivity and X-ray vision, even claiming to have 37 senses. Fubuki instead is a classic girl example. She has great skill as a maid and guardian, demonstrating ninja-like abilities.
** Also Tsurara and Shizuku, Liz's maids.
* NoNameGiven: Miwa, Eiko and Saki all ''have'' names, but they aren't often said (if at all...).
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Kogarashi lacks any regard for personal space.
* {{Otaku}} -- Kousuke. Has a maid fetish and a collection of eroge to prove it.
* [[OriginalVideoAnimation OVA]] -- An '[=OVD=]' was released alongside the first DVD collection, with an entirely predictable increase in {{fanservice}}. A combined {{beach episode}} and {{hot springs episode}} with Urashima Taro, plenty of ShowSomeLeg moments, very visible nipples, [[spoiler:and [[AllJustADream it all happened in Kousuke's head]].]]
* PantyShot: Almost the entire female cast (in the uncensored broadcast version).
* PetTheDog: Sort of. Kogarashi won't attack civilians.
** While he won't attack civilians, he has absolutely no qualms about messing with them if it is part of his mission. Like stealing panties off of girls in the middle of the day to examine them to find a thief (of underwear, no less).
* PhenotypeStereotype / TeenGenius: Liz Strawberryfield. A thirteen-year-old child prodigy of English descent, Liz is extremely wealthy herself and a remarkable kendo student.
* PietaPlagiarism: In the last episode, when [[spoiler: Maid Guy]] dies. [[spoiler: He Got Better.]]
* PottyFailure: Liz wets her bed due to nightmares about Kogarashi's crows. This is implied to be a recurring dream.
* PrehensileHair: One of Kogarashi's many abilities.
* RealMenWearPink: Kogarashi manages to be BadAss whilst wearing a maid dress and a frilly face mask.
* RefugeInAudacity: This series would not survive past page one without this.
* RestrainingBolt: Naeka gets a whistle in the first episode that can incapacitate a Maid Guy. [[ResetButton It's broken in the first few minutes of episode two]].
** In the last episode [[spoiler: it's shown that even this only stops Kogarashi for a moment and, immediately afterwards, goes into an UnstoppableRage]]
%%* RoofHopping -- Kogarashi again. Fubuki and the NinjaMaid twins do it, too.
%%* {{Sarashi}} -- Because everyone knows about the inverse relationship between bust size and math grades.
* SchoolgirlLesbians / StalkerWithAcrush: Saki who is in love with Naeka. She is so obsessed and jealously attacks anyone else who attempts peek at Naeka before she does. Saki's efforts are sometimes thwarted by Kogarashi, though he refuses to harm her directly.
* SingleTargetSexuality -- Even more specific than that, Leader only has eyes for Naeka's breasts. Though he quickly eyes Fubuki's after he gets slammed in the head again.
* SlasherSmile: As seen in the picture. Notably, it is not a temporary expression. Even when in LatexPerfection disguise, Kogarashi can't get his teeth to unpoint.
* SuperWindowJump -- Parodied with Liz/Strawberry Mask. After successfully pulling off the jump, Liz realizes that she leapt out a third story window without planning. Ow.
* TakeThat: Comedic as this series may be, it can also be interpreted as a biting commentary on the sheer ridiculous nature of maid fandom/fetish in the otaku community.
* {{Technopath}}: Kogarashi can also communicate with electronics, simply by stuffing a [=USB=] cable in his ear. Because he's JUST that good.
* TemptingFate: Episode seven has a good example. Naeka, ready to train, feels as though she could take on a bear. Cue bear. Though this can also be seen as a much more immediate version of the GilliganCut.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Eiko and Miwa, Naeka's sometimes friends.
* TrashOfTheTitans: Kogarashi and Fubuki turn Naeka's house from something unlivable into a normal house. Which is probably the other reason why they need live in maids.
* UnsoundEffect: All of Kogarashi's sound effects are narrated... by him.
* UnstoppableRage: Kogarashi after [[spoiler:resurrecting]], goes a ''little'' crazier than normal.
%%* WigDressAccent -- Subverted with Strawberry Mask/Liz.
* VerbalTic: Kogarashi has a tendency to say "kukuku" a lot. Kukuku.
* XRayVision: One of Kogarashi's power, the Maid Guy Scanner!
%%* YuppieCouple -- The fish store owner.
%%* {{Yuri}}
