Ru ru raju vajra maha agni MAHA FAIGAR!!!Mei Ikaruga is a mild-mannered Japanese college student, when one day, she wakes up in a partly ruined house with no idea how she got there or anything else except that her name is Maze. She promptly rescues the princess Mill from a band of attacking orcs, which are accompanied by Humongous Mecha, and in the process, discovers that she's one of the most powerful "luminators" (wizards) anywhere, and a competent pilot for Mill's powerful Humongous Mecha. Mill's kingdom has just been overrun by an evil force, and Maze decides to protect her.Then the sun goes down, and Maze abruptly turns into a male Handsome Lech....(From Satoru Akahori, the creator of Saber Marionette J, Sorcerer Hunters, and Kashimashi: Girl Meets Girl.)(Note: Maze redirects here. If you were looking for a physical maze, see The Maze.)
Deus ex Machina: The sun always seems to set in time for Man Maze to take over and curb stomp whoever had been previously beating around Woman Maze. Of course, the reverse can also happen, leading to the next example...
Diabolus ex Machina: In a reversal of the previous example, the Sun rises during Maze's first encounter with Gorgeous, just as Man Maze was about to finish off his Undeader, Gord. Woman Maze manages to keep it together, however.
Involuntary Shapeshifting: More specifically, on certain days fairies transform into human women, and are supposed to mate before they transform back. (Randy becomes notably flirty when she transforms.)
Kawaisa: Mill is cute, though a bit bratty at times.
Larynx Dissonance: One episode has the Female Maze transform into the Male Maze's body, but stay as the Female Maze mentally, and the next does it in reverse. In both situations the voice work is hilariously bad for the gender, but this may have been intentional.
Out of Focus: Aster pretty much exists out of focus. From his first appearance onward, his entire thing is to cut things up with his BFS and act perverted. It's at it's worst midway through the series, where you could remove him and Solude without changing things very much. Solude herself is only saved by a Day in the Limelight or two.
