With the first season of Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie ending recently, ANiMAZiNG!!! released a special poster on Twitter with Shikimori and Lilith from The Maid I Hired Recently is Mysterious.
The poster features Shikimori hugging Lilith, with both wearing cute maid outfits. Also on the poster are the full Japanese titles of both shows on the left and right sides, respectively.
Why exactly did Shikimori and The Maid I Hired Recently is Mysterious get a collab poster? That’s because The Maid anime will take over Shikimori’s ANiMAZiNG!!! broadcast slot in Japan starting July 23.
While these two shows are under the same network, it’s still interesting to see these two anime get a collab promotion.
This is because anime collabs are typically between shows that are made by the same studio, or have original works published by the same company.
For reference, Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie is animated by Doga Kobo, with the original manga published by Kodansha. Meanwhile, The Maid I Hired Recently Is Mysterious is animated by Silver Link and Blade while the manga is published by Square Enix.
The Maid I Hired Recently is Mysterious is an upcoming anime series based on the ongoing manga of the same name by Wakame Konbu.
The series follows the beautiful maid, Lilith who is hired to take care of Yuuri, the son of her employer.
In the beginning, Yuuri is skeptical of Lilith. Even with his skepticism of her, Lilith soon grows fond of Yuuri.
The anime will premiere on July 24, 2022, with a simulcast of each episode on Crunchyroll.
While seemingly a typical couple, Izumi is unassertive and has terrible luck, often leading him into trouble. When this happens, the typically cutesy Shikimori becomes a cool heroine.
Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie aired from April 10 to July 10, 2022. The full first season is available now on Crunchyroll.
