Editorial Reviews

In 20XX, Maria, a robot, came to Ueno's house while he was still a child. Programmed to take care of him, Maria was given to him by his parents. After his parents pass away, Ueno experiments with Maria by attempting to program her for sexual functions. Years pass and Ueno falls in love with Maria but she eventually runs out of power, leaving their love unconsummated.

Once upon a time...

People believed in magic to explain the things they could not understand, and magic offered the possibility to gain control of our lives . Thus, in fairy tales, protagonists undergo certain trials or tests to be found worthy of some wish/need, and a magical spell is spoken to make the wish come true.

Today...

Technology is our magic, and passwords are our magic spells. But people still must prove themselves worthy of the things we most wish for: love, good sex, companionship, and happiness.

A man, now old, has had a robot maid since he was young, and she has served him selflessly. Unfortunately, she is an early model; later models have upgrade kits that allow their owners to act out their fantasies and have sex with their droids. This early model maid wishes she could be more like a real woman so she could please her young owner sexually. But he does not care if she can't, he loves her. Years later, she is an outdated model; replacement parts are difficult to find and her batteries no longer recharge. The man has kept her anyway, because of his love for her. She sits in a corner, lifeless, yet he is content to carry on conversations with her in his head.

This movie is a clever updating of the Pinocchio fairy tale, replacing magic with technology; and if you look closely, almost all the plot elements are there:

In the original story, being a human boy was the wish and honesty the test. In Maid-Droid, true love is the wish and knowing the difference between sex and love is the test.

In the original Pinocchio, there was a dark side to being a human boy and he was in danger of being swallowed up by it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy, funny, smart March 29, 2010
Format:DVD
For me, this movie talks about lonely "Otaku," which literally means maniac, but is the equivalent of fan-boy, geek, or comic book nerd.

This movie follows Ueno, this nice, but lonely guy, an Otaku. Ueno's parents bought him a sexy maid driod when he was a kid. He always had a crush on her, and after high school, he falls in love with her, and ends up spending his whole life with her.

There are a bunch of sub-stories, like a cute police chief who is trying to find a rogue robot, and a couple of mean Otaku, who contrast with the nice lonely Ueno.

It's live action, with a pretty limited budget, so the maid droids are real people with some cheesy robot sound effects sometimes when they move. Reminded me of what I love about 70's and 80's American sci-fi.

I liked this movie a lot. Good, solid science fiction. Good story. Entertaining movie. Good ending. Sexy. I couldn't find anything negative about it besides that it's way too sensual for youngsters.

On a side note, I usually really don't like Pinocchio-style books or movies, but I could stand the Pinocchio references in this one. Maybe because there weren't that many. I also usually don't like movies that talk about Asimov's three rules of robots, but I liked this movie.

I've often wondered whether Japanese "pink" movies have ever been critically acclaimed much like regular movies? Pink movies are a very different animal, most people see them as an excuse to shoot women in the nude and to film simulated sex scenes but if you pay attention, it may well be the types of erotica that George Romero may shoot because of their powerful social commentaries. Well, I have to tell you that Sachiko Hanai has won several film awards in Japan and this 2009, well, director Naoyuki Tom Matsu's (who directed "Stacy") "MAID DROID" has achieved a near grand slam win by winning a lot of major awards in the Pink Grand Prix Awards that includes best picture and best director. I did like "Maid Droid"; it is an odd blend of sci-fi, a love story, horror and a fairy tale. Oh, ex-JAV-actress Akiho Yoshizawa stars as the lead together with AV-actress Anri Suzuki; do I have your attention yet?

In an unknown future, Ueno (who grows up as Masayoshi Nagami) is a young man who was raised by his parents' prototype cyborg maid named Maria (Akiho Yoshizawa). Ueno and Maria lived a quiet life that was fulfilling for both. Maria is loyal, faithful and committed, the only thing she lacks is the ability to have sex. When Ueno tries to upgrade her with some (ahem) erotic features, Maria's ran dry leaving an aging Ueno to fend for himself. But he remains true to Maria as he keeps her unmoving body even though it is no longer functional.

Meanwhile, in the urban areas of Japan, there is a machine serial rapist that is at large; Detective Yuri Akagi (Anri Suzuki) is on the case and is determined to find the automated sexual predator. She finds a warped puppet called Mr.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun little movie! July 22, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was surprisingly good. Combines elements of sci-fi, humor, poingnancy as it weaves three parallel but interwoven stories, each with it's own message. Borders on being explicite a couple of times, but taken as a whole is enjoyable. If you like Japanese cinema, or just pretty women, you will enjoy this movie.

Leave it to the Japanese to create such an (apparently) blockbuster with a budget next to zero. It is only 80 mins long and in my view doesn't meet expectations. Read more
