Series: My Maid, Miss Kishi, Vol. 1
Author/Artist: Kano Kashiwagi
Released: July 12, 2022
Kiichiro Hayase is extremely wealthy and successful, but he wouldn’t survive a day without his maid, Miss Kishi. The truth is that he is an exceptional klutz, so his maid must follow him around and clean up after him. It’s a perpetual problem.
Recent events have made Kiichiro painfully aware of how much he relies on Miss Kishi. He must do something quickly if he wants to keep her from walking away.
When I call Kiichiro Hayase a klutz, I feel that doesn’t fully cover the depth of his situation. He can’t touch anything without finding a way to destroy it. He likewise can’t remember anything, including critical paperwork.
It’s easy to see why he may require a team of people to help him be a successful businessman. Enter Miss Kishi, his maid (the title probably gave that away!). Miss Kishi does everything a maid is expected and then some. She’s more like a personal assistant (with damage control skills) than a maid.
All things said and done, My Maid, Miss Kishi, Vol. 1 is a light and interesting read. I loved seeing Kiichiro realize the value of having Miss Kishi in his life, though he does a horrible job of ensuring her happiness. But hey, a for effort, right?
While I really enjoyed My Maid, Miss Kishi, Vol. 1, I feel it is pretty solidly summed up in one volume. That makes me curious to know how the story would continue. Will it continue with these little individual events, or will it find an overarching way to continue?
