The Duke of Death and His Maid Storyline
The fascinating and hilarious plot, as well as the somber and sorrowful backstory of the protagonist’s character, have won over many viewers of the anime. An aristocratic family’s young duke is the focus of this anime, as he was cursed as a child. Because of his curse, he destroys each and every person he comes into contact with. His mother sends him into the woods with a servant and a butler as punishment.
She gives him a final chance to break the spell or his inheritance would go to his younger brother. Alice, his maid, is a lovely, upbeat young woman who adores him. She makes the young Duke uncomfortable by constantly teasing him. Duke takes great care to avoid touching her, and the two of them gradually develop deeper feelings for one another. They work together to find a cure for the curse so they may bring their lives back to normal.
