Seven Seas Entertainment has announced that it has aquired the license for The Duke of Death and His Maid manga series by Koharu Inoue: a gothic romcom between a cursed duke and his flirty maid, which inspired the new anime.
When the duke was a young boy, a witch made it so that any living thing he touched died. Unable to cope with such a cursed child, his family sent him away to live in an old mansion. Now a young man, his only companions are an elderly butler and his childhood friend, a buxom, blonde maid named Alice. Despite the fact that touching the duke means instant death, Alice is constantly teasing him, getting close and flirting mercilessly. But even though Alice loves to make the duke blush, her affection for him is the real deal. Can the two figure out a way to break the witch’s spell?
Seven Seas will publish The Duke of Death and His Maid manga series for the first time in North America in single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released in May 2022 for $12.99 USA / $16.99 CAN.
