Mayo Chiki: Complete Collection (2014/Sentai Filmworks Blu-ray)

Picture: A+ Sound: B+ Extras: C- Episodes: A-

Sakamachi Kinjiro, a.k.a. Jiro has a really bad case of gynophobia (fear of woman), whenever he is near or touched by the fairer sex he has an allergic reaction that makes him have a nose bleed like a water fountain, but when he discovers that their school idol Subaru, the Butler is really a girl, he becomes the favorite boy toy of her mistress, Kanade. Kanade makes a deal with Jiro, if he keeps Subaru's secret, she'll help cure his gynophobia. Suddenly he finds himself surround by girls and his worst nightmare come true in Mayo Chiki: Complete Collection (2014).

Subaru is a butler, but for various reasons 'she' must be as a 'he' to her mistress Kanade. Sakamachi Kinjiro has the word 'chicken' in his name (chi-jiro). As long a he keeps Subaru's secret a secret, Kanade helps plan events to help cure him of his condition, usually setting him up with dates with awkward situations. Joining the chaos is Usami a former Subaru fan turned rival for Jiro's affection. Nakaru a girl into glasses and BL (a.k.a. boys love, Subaru and Jiro) and Jiro's younger sister Kureha, who can punch out a bear with a single punch.

This was your standard harem anime, it is filled with fan service with romantic comedy. All the joke are surrounded by the main character in the fact that he can't be close to the girls and the girls love teasing/flirting that character because of it, but eventually all of them fall for him because he is such a good guy (and he resisted their wiles).

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image is as good as any picture quality I have seen on an Anime Blu-ray to date, while the lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo sound has exceptional sonics and fidelity for such a configuration. Use Pro Logic surrounds on this set if you have it. Extras include trailers and clean opening and closing animations.
