Get ready to experience the thrilling world of The Duke of Death and His Maid once again! The official website just dropped a brand new teaser video, a visually stunning visual, and the highly anticipated premiere date of July for the second season.
The talented team behind the first season is back, bringing us another season filled with drama, heartache, and a touch of romance. Yoshiki Yamakawa is returning as director, Hideki Shirane is overseeing the series composition, and Mitsuru Kuwabata is handling character design. Shogakukan Music & Digital Entertainment will once again be responsible for the CGI, ensuring that the same high level of production values that we loved in the first season will be present in Season 2.
The manga The Duke of Death and His Maid by Koharu Inoue officially ended last year, with the final volume being released in July in Japan. It was serialized on the Sunday Web Every platform and published by Shogakukan. Seven Seas Entertainment licensed it in English, and they describe the story:
When the duke was a young boy, a witch made it so that any living thing he touched died. Unable to cope with such a cursed child, his family sent him away to live in an old mansion. Now a young man, his only companions are an elderly butler and his childhood friend, a buxom, blonde maid named Alice. Despite the fact that touching the duke means instant death, Alice is constantly teasing him, getting close and flirting mercilessly. But even though Alice loves to make the duke blush, her affection for him is the real deal. Can the two figure out a way to break the witch’s spell?
