The Japanese animation studios Cygames and P.A. Works are bringing us the original comedy anime ‘Akiba Maid War,’ about a girl who dreams of being a top server at a maid cafe. The show is set to be released on October 2022 with HiDive picking up the series for streaming.
“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. Akiba Maid War also 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,” HiDive said on their website.
The music for the show is being managed by composer Yoshihiro Ike, who has worked on such anime as ‘Sonic X,’ ‘Knights of the Zodiac: Saint Seiya,’ and ‘Vampire in the Garden.’

HiDive describes the synopsis as follows,
“Akihabara is the center of the universe for the coolest hobbies and quirkiest amusements. In the spring of 1999, bright-eyed Nagomi Wahira moves there 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 who never seems to smile, Nagomi must do her best to elevate the Pig Hut over all other maid cafés vying for top ranking. Along the way she’ll slice out a place for herself amid the frills and thrills of life at the Pig Hut. Just when Nagomi’s dreams are within her grasp, she discovers not everything is as it seems amid the maid cafés of Akihabara.”
Sentai Filmworks has acquired the license to release the series on home video.
