On the official Twitter account for the anime adaptation of the manga written and illustrated by Wakame Konbu, Saikin Yatotta Maid ga Ayashii (The Maid I Hired Recently Is Mysterious), it was announced that the broadcast of the third episode, scheduled for August 6 in Japan, will be delayed by a week because its programming block will be occupied by the Women’s British Open Golf.
The broadcast of the third episode of the series has then been rescheduled until next August 13, obviously also affecting the distribution platforms that broadcast the series around the world, being Crunchyroll in the West.
The series has been broadcast since July 23 in Japan and is confirmed with a total of twelve episodes.

It should be noted that Konbu is also the author of the manga Jahy-sama wa Kujikenai! (The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated!).

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.
