Sanpeita Kobayashi made a ChildhoodMarriagePromise ten years ago. To this day, he still keeps her photo around in his wallet. His life is about to change. One day, a SuperDeformed PoweredArmor calling itself Kemeko blasts into his life and declares Sanpeita to be her husband. He now has to live with Kemeko, who was apparently sent to protect Sanpeita from the Mishima Electric Corporation, a MegaCorp who are after his power. It doesn't help matters that everyone around Sanpeita is some degree of crazy.

Based on the manga of the same name, adapted into an anime by Hal Film Maker. The anime covers the first two and a half volumes of the manga, which is in its eighth volume as of early 2010.
----
!!Tropes in this series include:

* ActionGirl: Ryoko Kurosaki, who manages pretty well in combat against Kemeko. As it turns out, she's also a student in Sanpeita's class, she just rarely shows up; she also has a cute cat sidekick.
* AlienAmongUs: [[spoiler:Ryoko, MM, and all Mishima Electric Corporation employees. And probably Haya-chan, too.]]
* AppliedPhlebotinum: The Nanoball is said to generate infinite energy out of nothing.
* AirplaneOfLove: Sanpeita has one of these in the first episode while SittingOnTheRoof, thinking of his impossible 10-years-past ChildhoodMarriagePromise.
* BarehandedBladeBlock: Sanpeita has to pull one off after mentioning that Ryouko can't swim.
* BeachEpisode
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Bad things happen when you push Tamako or Izumi too far. Senpeita too, [[spoiler:SuperpowerMeltdown believe it or not.]]
* {{BFG}}: The Kemeko Beam Cannon and some other weaponry she keeps in {{Hammerspace}}.
* BikerBabe: Kurosaki in the final episodes.
* ButtMonkey: If you're not convinced Sanpeita is one, then I ask what anime you've been watching...
* CatGirl: Miura is both this ''and'' a NinjaMaid. '''And''' she is voiced by MamikoNoto. It can't get any better than that, can it?
* CensorSteam: Lots of it in episode eleven.
* ChainsawGood: Kemeko attacks Sanpeita when he slacks off during physical exercises.
* ChildhoodMarriagePromise
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Misaki Hayakawa
* CooldownHug: Used by MM on Sanpeita after the Nanoball makes him experience his first SuperpowerMeltdown.
* CovertPervert: Misaki.
* CosplayOtakuGirl: [[spoiler:Sadly, Miura isn't a real maid... but that doesn't really diminish her awesomeness.]]
* DancingTheme: The ED and, to some extent, the OP.
* [[TheSevenMysteries The Eight Mysteries]]: Ryoko Kurosaki is one of them. (The fifth layer of the vaulting horse is the first, go figure.)
* ElaborateUndergroundBase: [[spoiler:Kemeko has rebuilt Sanpeita's school as her fortress, full of concealed weapons that pop up on EVA-style lifts.]]
* ElegantGothicLolita: Haya-chan's outfit throughout episode seven.
** This could also be considered either CosplayOtakuGirl or ShoutOut because the outfit looks suspiciously like [[spoiler:the one worn by Miharo is the first few episodes of Girls Bravo.]]
* CuteKitten: Ryoko's cat Juumonji, who can take down grown men and androids, keep an eye on Sanpeita and give a darn good massage.
* FanDisservice: Please, for the love of god - no more Kemeko fanservice!
* FanService: Please, for the love of god - more M.M. fanservice! And more Kurosaki fanservice, too! And Izumi and Miura and Sanpeita's mother...no, wait...
* FestivalEpisode
* Franks2000InchTV: Mishima's 2000 ''foot'' headquarters screen. It's the biggest thing in the city, and dwarfs every building around it, spanning what looks like at ''least'' ten city blocks across.[[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/snapshot20090327072206.jpg]]
* FryingPanOfDoom: Tamako, Sanpeita's little sister, effectively turns a frying pan into a weapon when she goes to fight Kemeko, believing her to be a burglar. [[spoiler:Later in the manga, she uses two of them chained together nunchuku style for her Electrical Parade Attack.]]
* {{Gainaxing}}: ''Izumi''.
* GatlingGood: Kemeko has used one of these on several occasions. Including ''in class''. [[spoiler:Although the anime uses a five barrel model, the manga has always had six, which is important in volume 5.]]
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Episode seven, Kemeko, Izumi... the giant syringe. 'Nuff fucking said. [[FreudWasRight Damn you, Dr. Freud]]...
* {{Gonk}}: Kemeko and gag-transfer student Hanayamada.
* {{Hammerspace}}: MM manages to fit into the Kemeko unit despite being bigger than it. Also where she keeps her {{BFG}}s.
* ImagineSpot: When she's packing for a trip to the beach, Izumi lapses into a romantic vision of her and Sanpeita watching the sunset. Sanpeita is unusually buff in her imagination.
* LastEpisodeNewCharacter: Kamishiro Yukina, miko [[spoiler:and nanoball prototype]], who appears in the manga a couple of chapters after the last anime episode. She appears ''right before the end credits''.
* LatexSpaceSuit: MM's default outfit, as well as Vanilla's.
* MechaMooks: Mishima has these by the truckload.
* MegatonPunch: One of these, combined with a massive {{nosebleed}}, puts Sanpeita into critical condition in episode four.
* MobileSuitHuman: Combined with BiggerOnTheInside
* NewTransferStudent: Subverted when a new transfer student is predicted - then Kemeko [[SuperWindowJump bursts through the window]]. Kemeko is not the new transfer student, though. That role belongs to a named extra completely unrelated to the main plot.
* NinjaMaid: Miura.
* NonActionGuy: Sanpeita
* TheOjou: Haya-chan is ''rich''.
** [[spoiler:In episode 9 she reveals that she is the "third-generation boss" -- i.e she could be in line to head a Yakuza family.]]
* OneeSama: Tamako considers Kemeko one, of all people.
* PantyShot: Strangely, there's more shown in the first five minutes of the OP than there is in the first five volumes of the manga.
* PaperThinDisguise: Used unsucessfully by Miura, using a cat mask and claiming to be "Neko Mimi Maid Kamen". Later, she dresses as Kemeko (with a Sanpeita dummy made of cardboard boxes that almost fools Izumi).
* ParentalObliviousness: Fumiko Kobayashi, Sanpeita and Tamako's mother, is a mangaka and frequently pulls all-nighters. She's oblivious in general, but the all-nighters don't help.
* PlayingAgainstType: RieKugimiya as Haya-chan. Let that mull your brain for a bit.
* PoorCommunicationKills: As of [[spoiler:Volume 7]], MM ''still'' hasn't bothered to tell Sanpeita what's going on, leaving him to get the information from her less-than-truthful mortal enemies.
* PoweredArmor: The Kemeko and Kiriko units.
* PuniPlush
* TheReveal: In episode eleven, M.M. is revealed to be [[spoiler:Mishima Mei, daughter of Mishima Souichirou, the founder and first president of Mishima Electronics, whom she killed to steal his ultimate invention, the Nanoball (according to Vanilla). This also makes Kemeko a PhlebotinumRebel. Using the power of Mishima to fight Mishima.]]
* ShoutOut: Among many other things, the show contains shout-outs to ''DaiMahouTouge'' and ''LightNovel/{{Bludgeoning Angel Dokurochan}}'' (episode seven), written and directed by the same man who directs ''Kemeko'' itself. Also ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', through Kemeko's plug suit and a very conspicuous Lance of Longinus weapon
** There's a couple of ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' shots in episode 2 of the anime when Tamako attacks Sanpeita.
** Aoi does a ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' shoutout in [[http://mangawall.com/manga/kemeko-deluxe/8/14 chapter 8]].
* ShowerScene: M.M. takes one after Sanpeita tries to find out her true identity in episode eleven, so it may also qualify for a mild ShowerOfAngst. [[spoiler:Izumi, too. Both with lots of CensorSteam.]]
* SpacePolice: [[spoiler:Ryouko]] appears to be part of it.
* SplitPersonality: MM inside and outside Kemeko.
* StalkerWithACrush: [[spoiler:Mochi in volume seven of the manga.]]
* StandardSnippet: [[{{LudwigVanBeethoven}} Beethoven's]] "Ode to Joy" is played when Sanpeita is lucky enough to see Izumi's bikini top fall off right in front of him. The version played even has a chorus backing it, making the moment verge on MundaneMadeAwesome territory.
* TheStinger: Just who the hell ''was'' that {{Miko}} girl? No to mention the marching army shot...
* SuperDeformed: Kemeko and Kiriko in particular, though the cast in general certainly fit.
* SurrealThemeTune
* SweetTooth: Ryoko gets orgasmic over sweets.
* TransformationTrinket: MM has a little watch that she can use to summon Kemeko from a distance. It's rather nifty.
* {{Tsundere}}: Izumi and MM/Kemeko
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: Izumi
* UnwantedHarem: MM, Izumi, Vanilla, Miura (calls him "master") and that Miko girl. [[spoiler:Even his mom chases him around in the shower (squicky)...]]
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: Misaki is way more perceptive than she makes herself appear.
* WomanScorned: Ryouta (did I get [[ThoseTwoGuys That One Guy]]'s name right? ) gets a bit too excited about this.
* YaoiFangirl: Considering what Sanpeita's mother draws, as revealed in flashback.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Part of Haya-chan's [[ElegantGothicLolita goth-loli]] outfit.
