Akiharu is a transfer student into a Upper Class and Lower Class orientated school, where not only do students take normal classes but also learn how to act like upper class people or serve their masters depending on their social standing.  Even before his first day, Akiharu has a run-in with Selnia Iori Flameheart which leads to a big misunderstanding.  It doesn't help that everywhere he goes as she chases after him he ends up finding himself in more situations that are taken for something different then what they are.  Thankfully, he is saved by his old "friend" Tomomi who tries to help him out in the school and also use him to cause trouble later on to make things more interesting for her. 
 
To be honest that is a long description for what is a rather lacking story.  There is a love triangle between Akiharu, Selnia, and Tomomi.  Although that may not even be true as it seems that Tomomi is just so content on being better then Selnia and vice versa that it may not even be a actual love triangle.  Needless to say, the story is a mess for what is there.  Each episode has a certain character that it focuses on and it may not have anything really to do with the episode before it.  Even at the end of the series, the show kind of makes fun of itself by saying how bad the ending is and pretty much slaps the viewer in the face like it does its main character. 
 
So what is Ladies vs Butler really about?  Boobs, boobs, and more boobs.  You are pretty much guaranteed to see every female character naked at least once, sometimes numerous times per episode.  Each episode tends to just be a showcase to put the girls in different situations to get naked, although they do tend to have at least two shower/bath scenes per episode so you will get some consistency.  You couldn't even consider it fanservice since so much of the show is made up of the nudity and just other ecchi moments that it is just what you come to expect each episode. 
 
And that is why I feel like such a bad person after having not only watched the series once but twice, and enjoying it.  It just doesn't take itself seriously and just has fun at being over the top.  I can't help but watch an episode and get a good laugh at just the sheer insanity that the show is.  It's obvious just how much of a joke the show is every time Toichiro, the only male upper-ed student that is obsessed with himself and thinks he's god's gift to the world, is on the screen.  He doesn't show up very often, but when he does it's guaranteed to be stupid and hilarious.   I don't think I would have enjoyed it as much if it would have tried to take itself serious.
 
However, I can't give this show anything higher then a 3 out of 5 and the only reason I gave it that high of a score is because of how much I enjoyed it.  There is just nothing that you will get out of it.  You may care a little about one of the characters, but not enough that'll keep you wondering what's next.  But if you can go in expecting to get nothing but a bunch of stupid situations that you may only find funny if you like obscene stuff and just want to see what stupid thing happens next, you may end up enjoying the show.  Everyone else shouldn't even waste their time.
