‘Akiba Maid War’ Headed to HIDIVE this October

The anime series follows the adventures of small-town Nagomi Wahira’s move to the big city to work in a maid café.

Akiba Maid War, an original anime series from P.A. Works (Ya Boy Kongming!) and Cygames (Zombie Land Saga), is coming to HIDIVE this October as part of its fall 2022 simulcast lineup.

In the series, bright-eyed Nagomi Wahira moves to the metropolitan Akihabara with dreams of joining a maid café. She quickly dons an apron at café Ton Tokoton, AKA the Pig Hut, but adjusting to life in bustling Akihabara isn’t as easy as serving tea and delighting customers. Paired with the dour Ranko, Nagomi must do her best to elevate the Pig Hut over all other maid cafés vying for top ranking. Along the way she begins to find a place for herself, but just when Nagomi’s dreams are within her grasp, she discovers not everything is as it seems amid the maid cafés of Akihabara.

Akiba Maid War stars Kondo Reina (Eta in The Eminence in Shadow and Ryo Shinonome in Cinderella Nine) as Nagomi Wahira, and Sato Rina (Senjumaru Shutara in Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War and Kaede Kagayama in Non Biyori) as Ranko Mannen.

Masui Soichi (Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai) directs the series while Nii Manabu (Kakegurui Twin, The Day I Became a God) serves as both the chief animation director and character designer.
