Plot – Spoilers:
Miyako applies for a job as a maid and receives a positive response from her prospective employers in a neat sealed envelope. It gets even more impressive when her employers measure her body parts precisely before hiring her. Seems like they’re very specific about choosing the best! Things seem perfect when she’s then assigned a mentor, Mai-chan, who seems really nice. Miyako is eager to learn and a bit slow in her movements which makes Mai-chan, who’s very patient, the perfect teacher.
Things then get a little bizarre when Miyako is exposed to the humiliation and torture around the house, for the entertainment of the wheelchair-bound master of the place. Also, the specifics are really specific – you can have your finger hacked off for spilling your milk, but you must cover your underwear because the master doesn’t like indecency.
But it’s when Miyako watches her employer poke Mai-chan’s eye out with a fork and eat it, that she really springs to life, experiencing a surge of sexual energy. What’s even better, Mai-chan has the unique gift where her body is able to heal itself. So all good.
Mai-chan’s Daily Life (adapted from a manga) raises some fundamental questions. Would the feeling of not wanting to physically harm someone vanish if you knew they were capable of regenerating the body parts you just ravaged. What is physical pain. How much of it is psychological. Would a person suffer less if they knew they were sure to recover?
