Shinigami Bocchan to Kuro Maid Synopsis

Cursed by a witch as a child, a young duke gained the unwanted power to kill every living being he touched. Forced to move away from his family and move into a large villa deep in the forest, the Duke is treated as if he did not exist and is constantly shunned by his peers.

However, he is not entirely alone. Rob and Alice, his butler and maid, are always by his side. Alice loves to tease him, and as their relationship grows, the Duke sets out to break free of his deadly curse. Of course he will need help, and who better to do that than the various denizens of the supernatural?
