The first promotional video has been released for the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Wakame Konbu's romcom manga series The Maid I Hired Recently Is Mysterious.
The anime is jointly produced by animation studios Silver Link and Blade. It is scheduled to air on July 23, 2022 on ABC TV and TV Asahi's ANiMAZiNG!!! programming block.
The story features a little boy named Yuuri (CV: Saori Hayami) who lost his parents and lives all alone in a mansion in the countryside. One day, a maid named Lilith (CV: Rie Takahashi) knocks on his door and asks to be hired by him. She adds she doesn't need compensation as long as she gets to live in the mansion. Yuuri becomes curious about Lilith's true intentions.
The first PV also features the opening theme song Su-suki jyanai! (Japanese: す、好きじゃない！ Unofficial English: I-I don't like!) sung by Japanese girl group ≠ME. The ending theme will be Two People in the Secret Garden (秘密の庭のふたり) by voice actress Yui Horie, who also voices Tsukasa in the anime.
