Breeding Like Hamsters – ‘UzaMaid!’ Episode 3 Review

Breeding Like Hamsters - An Anime QandA Review of 'UzaMaid!' Episode 3

So what’s the show? UzaMaid! Episode 3.

So what’s this episode about? Yay! UzaMaid is back!

Uh-huh… that much is obvious by the fact we’re reviewing the damn thing! No I mean the UzaMaid that I fell in low-key love with in Episode 1 is back! Straight up perverted for the win!

So in other words, whatever nuance they built up with the second episode is gone? It’s not gone, it forms a foundation to the ~shenanigans~ going forward. See, here’s the thing this show exists in this hyper-reality that is akin to a Disney film—it’s basically Mary Poppins if Mary Poppins wanted to marry the youngest girl she was looking after.

Probably shouldn’t be doing that in public, Miss.

‘Kay… What?

Well it’s just that I wonder what the point of this show is? That’s all… The point? It’s a comedy, it doesn’t need a point! Here’s the main thing you need to know about this show—Tsubame is a muscular ex-military lolicon maid—but she’s also an exceedingly good and smart and caring person—this show raises the defence for being someone that’s both scorned by the populous at large but also something inherently selfless and caring.

No entry!

So what happens in this episode? Misha needs to go back to school and our UzaMaid does everything in her power to get the little loli to do so. And she does! And it’s wonderful and wholesome, and Tsubame is so happy about having ‘gotten through’ to Misha that she breaks into the elementary school by hang-glider to make sure Misha is having fun and making friends. And she’s of course arrested for her troubles. Though the emotional weight of the episode comes from Misha ~finding her place~ at school after getting fed up with the other kids just liking her for her looks, she asserts herself and (with the help of her new friend Mimika) solves the class’ rapidly expanding hamster population problem. Which endears her classmates to her personality and resolve rather than her exotic Russian looks. It’s very sweet!

Those abs though…

Wait? I thought you said this was more like episode 1 of UzaMaid, this didn’t sound too perverted? Okay, it strikes a balance between Episode 1 and Episode 2, but we still have Tsubame drooling over a bunch of elementary school kids as she’s on her way to work as well as the fantastic line as she’s fantasising about their eventual wedding “I promise to love you, even after your first period”.

That’s how you know it’s true love… wait, what?!

*spit take* I know right?! Classic Tsubame…

Uh-huh, so happy with the show now? I’ve always been more or less happy with the show but this is definitely more of the mix of inappropriate and heartfelt that I wanted from the show and so hopefully it continues on this way going forward!

  1. I thought this one wasn’t as perverted, as far as Tsubame’s actions towards other people, more that she just has no internal filter. Like she very respectfully left Mom’s room alone, waiting for Misha to eventually share it with her. It certainly wasn’t Kumagoro’s defense that kept her out. And she actually busted out the good advice about people only focusing on your looks early because they can’t know anything else about you.

    I think this show hits a good balance as far as message, especially with keeping it limited to Tsubame being the one who gets in trouble for Tsubame’s actions.

    • That’s a good point about her getting in trouble for her own actions, shows that this takes place in a version of reality where that kind of behavior isn’t tolerated. Although I guess you could say that for a lot of lolicon characters in other shows too. Though I think it’s a lot more rare to have one as the protagonist as opposed to a comic relief side-character.
