The Maid I Hired Recently Is Mysterious anime announced – Lilith PV released

If you are a fan of The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated! anime series (like me!), there is a decent chance you will also enjoy the upcoming new anime The Maid I Hired Recently Is Mysterious.

After all, the anime is based on a manga from the same mangaka Wakame Konbu.

Square Enix announced the new anime adaptation today, (known as Saikin Yatotta Maid ga Ayashii in Japanese), as well as its July premiere in Japan.

Yep, unlike some anime that are announced but then don’t show up forever, The Maid I Hired Recently Is Mysterious has obviously been in production for a while now.

Along with the anime announcement, Square Enix also released a The Maid I Hired Recently Is Mysterious promotional video featuring Lilith (watch below), a cute first key visual, and the mention that two heavy hitters have been cast in the main roles.

Saori Hayami (Yor Forger in Spy x Family) will be voicing protagonist Yuuri, with Rie Takahashi (Takagi in Teasing Master Takagi-san) playing Lilith the maid.

Mirai Minato (The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated!) is both chief director and in charge of scripts, with Misuzu Hoshino (episode director on The Great Jahy…) directing the anime, and Machi Yoshino (episode chief animation director on The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn as a Typical Nobody) as character designer.

Silver Link and Blade are in charge of anime production.

Yen Press is publishing the English version of The Maid I Hired Recently Is Mysterious manga, with the third in the series out in June, and the fourth in October.

They describe its plot like this:

There’s something really strange about the maid I just hired! No normal person could be so beautiful, or cook such amazingly delicious food, or know exactly what I want before I even ask.

She must be using magic—right, a spell is the only thing that can explain why my chest feels so tight whenever I look at her.

I swear, I’m going to get to the bottom of what makes this maid so…mysterious!
