Top 10 Best Maid Anime Series You May Want to Check Out

You don’t have to watch much anime to see that Japan has a thing for maid costumes. 

We’re at a point now where it’s almost difficult to find an anime where at least one character doesn’t dress up as a maid at least one time.

But this isn’t about anime in which some characters dress up as maids some of the time. Every once in a while, you get a series that takes the obsession to its logical conclusion and the whole series is about maids.

Here’s 10 examples of exactly that.

10. He Is My Master

This is almost exactly the same premise as the previous series, but reversed and with an extra dose of creepy.

A poor, runaway pair of teenage sisters find themselves sleeping on the street until they are given jobs and boarding in the house of Yoshitaka Nakabayashi, a 14-year old millionaire who is exactly the kind of spoiled child you would expect a 14-year-old millionaire to be.

Yoshitaka relentlessly harasses the girls with hidden cameras, humiliating tasks, and other stuff that would probably land him in jail for life in reality.

In all honesty, it’s hard to truly recommend this anime unless you’re pretty unaffected by the creepy, young-girls-as-rape-objects side of anime and you really like maid outfits. Because the maid outfits are certainly there, but…so is that other stuff.

9. Shounen Maid

The newsest series on the list, Shounen Maid started airing in April 2016 and is still running at the time of writing.

It focuses on a familiar concept – an orphaned child is taken in and given a place to live, in exchange for being a live-in maid.

The difference? The maid is a boy, and the person who took him in is his uncle.

8. Hanaukyou Maid-tai

All Tarou Hanaukyou wanted was to live with his grandfather in Tokyo. After losing his mother, living with his next-of-kin seemed like the best option for him.

The fact that his grandfather’s house is a gigantic mansion full of hundreds of maids serving him 24/7? That was unexpected… and honestly unwelcome and overwhelming, from his perspective. Believe it or not, he finds a way to cope with the situation.

7. Kamen no Maid Guy

Because maids know no gender.

Kamen no Maid Guy, or “Masked Maid Guy,” is about a huge burly dude wearing a maid uniform like a superhero.

There’s more to it, like where he’s protecting the heir to a tycoon’s fortune who will inherit it when she turns 18. But honestly, if you needed more than the image and the name “Masked Maid Guy” to know how you feel about this, you’re probably not going to get it.

Also, this is animated by MADHOUSE, of “One-Punch Man” fame. That is in no way a suggestion that these series are similar in quality. Just stating a fact.
