Even with the ridiculous title, Maze isn't a straight parody series like Excel Saga or Okatu no Video. There might be head nods to other anime series, but I never caught them. It is just a girl transported to another world that has giant mecha's and sorcery. She is destined to save the turmoiled world and gathers companions to help defeat the evil powers that be. The fun twist to the series is that by day she is a soft spoken girl who is just wanting peace, and by night she become a loud mouth, perverted, cocky man. It wasn't a great series but fun for a one time watch.

I agree with the fact that 'Maze' is not an exceptional series, but does provide some amusing entertainment value. The only specific parody I remember from this series is a reference to 'The Wizard of OZ' in the opening episode (Be careful where you drop that house!) After that, if you want to consider it as a parody, its a generic one to your typical fantasy shoujo mecha series (e.g. 'Magical Knight Rayearth', 'Escaflowne'...)
