Summary of Saikin Yatotta Maid ga Ayashii

Beautiful maid Lilith was recently hired to tend to the whims of her employer’s son, Yuuri. However, Yuuri’s exaggerated skepticism about his every action keeps him nervous, as he suspects tricks are being hatched behind his back. Despite her paranoia, Lilith loves Yurri and often teases him to further their relationship. Saikin Yatotta Maid ga Ayashii follows the relationship between cautious Yuuri and his wonderfully charming maid in this bizarre, everyday rom-com.
