The end is in sight for Koharu Inoue’s The Duke of Death and His Maid manga, which recently inspired a TV anime adaptation that aired in Japan and streamed via Funimation back in the summer season. According to Shogakukan’s recent listing, the series is entering its climax.
The beginning of the end is coming with the 14th collected volume of the manga, which hits shelves in Japan on November 12. The series first kicked off on Shogakukan’s Sunday Webry web manga site back in October of 2017, and Seven Seas Entertainment publishes the series in English.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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?
In the meantime, there’s also more of the anime on the way.
