Raishin Akabane and his beautiful companion Yaya enroll at Walpurgis Royal Academy to study Machinart: a dangerous blend of magic and technology. Raishin is a puppeteer capable of using magic to power up Yaya, his automaton, for ruthless battles no mere human could survive. In the wrong hands, Yaya is a deadly weapon, but the honorable Raishin, despite his mysterious quest for vengeance, takes no pleasure in killing for sport. Instead, he joins forces with a harem of gorgeous classmates to unmask those responsible for a rash of heinous human experimentation. If new enemies and terrible grades don’t spell doom for Raishin, he and Yaya might live long enough to conquer the school where magic meets machine!

Although there is fan service, most of it is the "Doll" Yaya trying to seduce Raishin. And Raishin is neither a complete blockhead dweeb nor a goofy perv in the usual anime trope, but a fairly normal guy. It makes the fan service a funny gag, like the cat that always hops into your lap whenever you sit down.
is sort of Infinite Stratos meets Gunslinger Girls. The students here have automatons
instead of mechanical suits as in I.S., but the idea is similar: they fight with powers
enhanced by the student's magical abilities. And like G.G., the automatons which are
treated with kindness and respect develop personalities, and even the ability to act
independently. Of course this last is a two-edged sword for the protagonist, whose
automaton introduces herself to everyone as Raishin's wife, and acts like a jealous
female. This is the source of most of the humor in what is otherwise a fairly dark story.
It is extremely well done. Raishin treats "her" with the same kind of amused exasperation
as Misaka of A Certain Scientific Railgun treats Kuroko--and with as little success.
All the supporting characters are well done and believable, too.
The one complaint that can be leveled is the same as for any 12- or 13-episode series:
by the time all the characters are introduced and a little back story given, the series is
wrapping itself up. UMD desperately needs another season or two.
Though your kids would enjoy this series as well, parental guidance is warranted, as there
is a little android nudity included, and some mild sexual innuendo.
