The Maid I Hired Recently Is Mysterious anime introduced three additional characters: Tsukasa Gojoin, Fujisaki, and Natsume Nakashima, along with their voice actresses, Yui Horie, Mikasa Komatsu, and Miyu Tomita respectively. Horie is also performing the ED theme song titled “Himitsu no Niwa no Futari” (The Two in the Secret Garden). The anime will be animated by studios SILVER LINK and BLADE, and is slated to broadcast this July.
Yui Horie, known as Tsubasa Hanekawa in the Monogatari series, is playing the role of Tsukasa Gojoin, Yuri’s classmate. Mikako Komatsu who voiced Salwa in Konbu Wakame’s other work The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated‘s anime adaptation in 2021, is acting as Tsukasa Gojoin’s female butler Fujisaki. Miyu Tomita, who is playing Miko Iino in the Kaguya-sama series this season, is voicing Yuri’s maid Lilith’s former classmate and former colleague Natsume Nakashima.
The Maid I Hired Recently Is Mysterious is Konbu Wakame’s romantic comedy that follows Yuri and his new “mysterious” maid Lilith. The series has been serialized in Square Enix’s magazine Monthly Gangan Joker since January 2020. The manga released its 5th volume in February 2022.
Yen Press has been officially publishing the English edition and describes the plot of Volume 1 as:
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!
