HIDIVE will debut Akiba Maid War, an original anime project from P.A. Works (Ya Boy Kongming!) and Cygames (Zombie Land Saga), in October as part of its Fall 2022 simulcast lineup.

Masui Soichi (Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai) is directing the new 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 stars voice actors 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.

“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.”

The future home video release for Akiba Maid War will be distributed by Sentai. We’ll have more news on Cygames and PA Works’ original television anime when it premieres in October.
