Sentai Filmworks are at it again with the announcement of Mahoromatic: I'm Home (Tadaima Okaeri). This two episode OVA series, that debuted in 2009, was a small follow up on the original Mahoromatic series. We find Mahoro and friends are getting ready to celebrate their home town's 120th anniversary. How will they celebrate? By running a maid cafe of course. Everything seems to be going to plan when all of a sudden Mahoro is attacked!
The special is a nice thank you to the fans for their support of the series. It has all the charm of the original series, but seems to come off a little light overall. Not saying it's bad or anything, it just seems to lack that extra bit of it's quirky charm. For anyone who does like Mahoro, like myself, you do need to check it out.
It will be released on DVD this summer with the English dub coming from the fine folks at Bang Zoom Entertainment. Trailer and press release after the jump.
