Dir:Naoyuki Tomomatsu (Stacy/Vampire Girl v.s. Frankenstein Girl.Eating Schoolgirls)
After falling in love with Vampire Girl v.s. Frankenstein Girl I began my hunt for films done by the director and I must say I was pleased with the second film I checked out by him which was Stacy and that film was equally awesome, So I decided to continue the hunt and I gotta say I was a bit let down by this one.
Maid Droid struck my curiosity with it's cover and after reading a bit about it , I was looking forward to this entry to the directors filmography. Right off the bat we learn that this film is a commentary on the relationships between males and females and what each of them want from one another, and it honestly falls a bit flat.
In the opening we see a woman being raped by what appears to be a cyborg of some sort and shortly afterwards we meet Master Ueno who now lives with his Maid Droid Maria whom spent her lifespan raising Ueno from childhood after his parents dies while out on a business trip. The Master and his Droid begin a relationship and Maria wants to be able to please him but her programing does not allow sexual actions.As the flash backs continue we see that Ueno has deeper feeling for Maria and does not trust nor desire any other woman, meanwhile in the present time a group of detectives are on the case of the serial rapist that is stalking the streets at night and they come to the conclusion that it is in fact not human. Ueno is living with Maria still and her batteries have died leaving her motionless and he cannot find a battery due to the current outlaw of all droid products.
Overall: 5 out of 10
