The innocent Nagomi Wahira has always admired the cute girls serving at maid cafes. Hoping to fulfill her dream of becoming one, she moves to Akihabara to work at the maid cafe Ton Tokoton.

Nagomi's first day seems completely normal—until she has to run an "errand" at a rival maid cafe along with her fellow recruit, the mature Ranko Mannen. There, things quickly go south, and Nagomi soon gets her first taste of Akihabara's violent maid wars. As she watches Ranko calmly battle her way through a horde of gun- and knife-wielding maids, Nagomi realizes that maid cafes are drastically unlike what she had envisioned.

While struggling to reconcile her expectations with the harsh reality she finds herself in, Nagomi searches for the enjoyment she once saw in the lives of maids.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


The word "Meido" (冥途) in the title is a play on words, where the kanji means "underworld," and is pronounced the same as "maid" in Japanese pronunciation.

A man's reach should exceed his grasp. This sums up Akiba Maid Sensou for me.

Akiba Maid Sensou is many things, both good and bad, but it never betrays itself by trying to be something it’s not. It’s an absurd premise about pseudo Yakuza like maids that kill, blackmail, and fight each other for supremacy. If that’s not wacky enough for you then know the show does not hold back it’s punches; literally. The same goes for guns, knives, and whatever manner of weapons for that matter. Starting to get the picture yet? More importantly it never disrespects the viewer by leading them on. Certain ...

Mixed Feelings
It starts off strong, but personally I think it peters out midway through. The ending was also disappointing, but Japanese writers were never good at endings anyway. Nagomi is also your typical whiny pacifist throughout the entire show.

If you're here because you want to watch a maid gang war with the purple-hair chick dropping bodies, that only lasts for the first few episodes. After that, our main maid cast might as well be Buddha with how much they suddenly become pushovers (which leads to some incredibly forced situations for the sake of drama because they grovel instead of standing up for themselves). Overall it was ...

I liked this show in the beginning, because I genuinely thought it had some good writing (only in the first 2), but it quickly went south with the writing as it depended on too many tropes and cliches. This show is meant to be exaggerated, however, it goes to a point where there's barely any explanation and multiple plot holes. The main character, Nagomi, drags everyone down with her with barely a redemption arc. There is lack of character depth for most of the characters, as again, the "development" of said so characters purely depends on plot holes and cliches. I wouldve liked this show ...
