Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up–This manga features two things that Japanese creators find inexplicably fascinating: girls in maid outfits and girls wearing underwear that occasionally peeks out from under their skirts. Combine this group of girls with the prince they’re supposed to defend–one who has the appearance of a 10-year-old, the maturity of a 4-year-old, and the libido of an 18-year-old–and you have a very annoying read. When his castle is attacked, his hand-picked maids lead him to safety. They go to a local shrine where, after reading the inscription that the holy weapons stored there can only be used by knights, the prince dubs the girls “The Order of the Maid” so they can use them. Cacao and Mint show promising signs of brain-cell activity, but Liquer, Bana, and Cogna spend most of their time making tea or shrieking whenever the prince gropes them or forces them to strip to their underwear. Luckily, the magical weapons don’t seem to require much natural ability on the weapon-holder’s part, so all the girls have to do is look good holding them. RAN’s artwork is well done and detailed, especially on full-page spreads as when the group watches the castle burning far below them. This is perhaps due to the fact that RAN is more established as an artist than as an author.–Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library

So, are you ready for the next big interesting manga? Well...here one is? Kinda? Maid War is the continuing fascination the Japanese culture has with cute girls dressed in Maid outfits and hits the usual points of unnecessarily horny ruler, a group of cute girls in outfits, anicent powers that you can conviently use. And the first half of the book after the easy to read loss of home at the beginning is fairly standard. Several characters in the protagnist group aren't really even fleshed out, instead depending more on tried and true sterotypes and less on interesting or new personality dynamics. So, why does it actually have some decent scores here? Well...the last portion of the book actually picks up, as if the author remembered the word 'War' in the title and puts in a couple of interesting antagonists, as well as a slight twist not seen coming. And this small HOPE that volume two can rise above what was a vast majority of 'meh' before actually hitting a stride is what makes this book rating an average.
