Synopsis for Saikin Yatotta Maid ga Ayashii
The beautiful maid Lilith has recently been hired to look after the whims of her employer’s son, Yuuri. However, Yuuri’s over-the-top skepticism of her every action keeps him guessing, as she suspects trickery is going on behind her back. Despite her paranoia, Lilith grows fond of Yurri and often teases him to further her relationship. Saikin Yatotta Maid ga Ayashii revolves around the relationship between the cautious Yuuri and his wonderfully charming maid in this quirky everyday rom-com.
