▍About The Maid I Hired Recently Is Mysterious
The Maid I Hired Recently Is Mysterious is a manga written by Wakame Konbu. It was serialized in Square Enix’s Gangan Joker in Japan after the author had previously serialized the romantic comedy manga on pixiv. and published by Yen Press in America.
The story is about Lilith, a mysterious maid that is suddenly appointed to a mansion where the protagonist Yuri lives. But there’s something odd, as no normal person could be so beautiful, or cook such amazingly delicious food, or know exactly what Yuri wants without so much as asking! Not to mention, his chest gets tight whenever he sees her…just what sort of magic is she applying?
