"A real present" will be revealed on May 12
As you all may know, today, May 10 is "Maid Day" in Japan (because May 10 can be read in Japanese as "May-do"). To commemorate the day, the official website for the forthcoming TV anime adaptation of Inoue's fantasy comedy manga Shinigami Bocchan to Kuro Maid / The Duke of Death and His Maid posted a 100-second special letter movie featuring its two main character voices - Bocchan (Natsuki Hanae) and Alice (Ayumi Mano).
The text of the letter is the same as usual, with Alice teasing Bocchan, but she also announces that a real present will be revealed on May 12, the release day of the latest 12th volume of the original manga.
The TV anime is set to premiere in Japan in July 2021. Yoshinobu Yamakawa (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, Hi Score Girl) serves as the director, alongside the series composition writer Hideki Shirane (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?) and the character designer Mitsuru Kuwabata (Hi Score Girl). J.C.STAFF (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?) works on anime production.
A nobleman named Bocchan--. When he was a child, he was cursed by a witch with a curse that would make everything he touched die. The curse causes him to be rejected by those around him, and he has spent his days alone in a large mansion deep in the forest. The maid who serves him is Alice. But Alice's presence is the source of his biggest worry because she routinely sexually harasses him...! Alice is always seducing Bocchan as close as she can get. Bocchan loves her but is not even allowed to hold her hand. Will their pure love really bear fruit...?
