Mahoromatic fanservice compilation

Back in 2001, Mahoromatic was a game changer.  At the time it was by far the most ecchi series to air on TV, but perhaps more amazing was that fans generally respected the series as an anime despite the unbelievable amount of nudity and service. The ecchi genre as a whole took off over the next half-decade, no doubt thanks to the (fully deserved) commercial success of this series.

I remember watching this show in the early 2000s when it was brand new and thinking even then that this was an incredibly nostalgic show.  This is slice-of-life done right, in a “remember the good times” kind of way that reminded me some of Maison Ikkoku, except with quasi-mech battles, a much higher volume of nudity, and plenty of GAINAX zaniness.
