"There are twisted tales and twisted tails, but few are as twisted as poor Sado's..who's just realized that he LIKES being made miserable. Of course, knowing that only makes him more miserable, which in turn... Well, you get the idea. Desperate to break the perverse cycle, Sado volunteers for a special club where he hopes he can work through his issues. And though he probably should have expected as much, imagine his consternation when he discovers that the other members have equally... complex... issues to deal with. For example, the hyper-aggressive club president Isurugi not only has a violent fear of cats, but also believes herself to be a god! Then there's Yuno, who's terrified of men, the nurse who forces other people to perform cosplay; and Hoyama, Sado's best friend and a compulsive cross-dresser, who's also the girl that Sado is infatuated with. (We did say it was complex, remember?# If you think you've seen EVERYTHING that can happen in an anime, prepare to have your eyes opened to FULL anime size as you enter a whole new paradigm with MM! #It's pronounced "Emu Emu!")!"
"It's a perverted show for perverts made by perverts." The Japanese voice actors for Mio and Yuno said this best and I have to wholeheartedly agree! "MM!" is loads of fun to watch if you've got the right frame of mind. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the entire series, but I noticed that I was a little sad when I started thinking about an actual plot. The plot is supposed to focus around finding a way to cure Sado of his super masochism... but that never really happens. It's pretty hilarious though when they try hypnosis on him. Just wait till you're introduced to his mother and sister, too!
The world can be divided into 2 categories: S's and M's. While Sado might be a Masochist, the majority of the cast ends up being sadists. The believability factor is pretty much gone from the get-go when he's kicked out of the 3rd floor window at school, takes a baseball bat to the jewels, and has his head used as a place mat for a tin of scalding water. But that's okay beause I don't think anyone came in expecting that of this title. We got what we came for which is fanservice and comedy.
Blu-ray graphics are nice and pretty to look at, but don't expect a ton of detail; just more vibrant and rich colors. Really loved the English voice-acting in this one. Monica Rial is amazing as Mio whether she's being sweet or cursing the heck out of Sado while beating him with a baseball bat. Tatsukichi is actually voiced by females in both versions as well.
Very fun series to watch if you're not offended by S&M, physical abuse, attempted incest, and raunchy humor. If you pay attention during the opening and closing songs, you'll see a S or a M beside a lot of the names which is kind of fun to see. Give it a whirl and I think you'll enjoy this one!
