The girl I recently hired is mysterious is a brand new comedy anime that can be found in the summer 2022 anime lineup, and after only four episodes, the series has established itself as the most easy and cuddly anime of the season, even if it doesn’t live up to Classroom of the Elite and The Yakuza Guide to Babysitting. The Domestic help anime has an intimate feel, with a small but likeable cast of characters in a modern setting.
In the span of four episodes, girl is mysterious set up its charming main cast of characters and clearly defined their relationships with each other. This also includes the characters’ unresolved conflicts, their personal flaws that must be overcome, and the lingering mysteries surrounding Lilith the maid and her young boss.
Lilith is the mysterious girl in question
Lilith is the titular character of The girl I recently hired is mysterious, although it is questionable whether she is actually the main character. She and her young boss Yuuri are like co-leads, and Lilith has a habit of moving the plot forward while also revealing very little about herself. Until now, the Domestic help anime has only given tantalizing hints about Lilith’s backstory and her connection to Yuuri, but over time, the anime will likely flesh out this character completely and unravel the mystery bit by bit.
For now, Lilith is known only as the charming girl who arrived at Yuuri’s small mansion one day and generously offered to work for free in exchange for Yuuri’s company. This makes Lilith one of anime’s most healthy and lovable maids of all, and even more amusing is her habit of teasing Yuuri, only to show her shy dandere side when Yuuri teases her back. So far, Lilith has been Yuuri’s housekeeper, best friend and foster mother all at once, and Yuuri needs her more than he cares to admit.
Yuuri is the young heir who needs a girl
The blond boy Yuuri recently tragically lost his parents in a traffic accident, leaving Yuuri all alone in that big house of his. Yuuri is still processing his grief, but like a defensive, irascible tsundere, he is determined to hide those vulnerable feelings and exude an air of competence and confidence. He’s also Lilith’s new boss, despite being at most half her age, and this curious boy is determined to uncover and get to the bottom of the secrets of his ‘suspicious’ new maid.
Yuuri is a smart, restless and proud child who insists on doing things his way, and he doesn’t like it when people play games with him. But even he can’t hide his vulnerable side behind this bravado, and he quickly panics or even cries if Lilith is gone too long. Yuuri is already very close to her and after a month he can’t imagine his life without her, even though he can’t stand the mysteries that surround her.
Gojouin Tsukasa is Yuuri .’s gentle friend and supporter
Yuuri is still a kid, so that means he goes to school and spends a lot of time with other students his age. So is the shy but friendly green-haired girl Gojouin Tsukasa, who is determined to support her grieving classmate Yuuri wherever she can. Tsukasa is a total dandere and has trouble expressing herself, yet she is lucky enough to have a supportive friend like her in his life. In the privacy of her family’s estate, Tsukasa is much more expressive and playful, teasing her own maid Fujisaki and taking pictures of her in colorful maid outfits. However, it remains to be seen how and when Tsukasa will truly give Yuuri the emotional support he needs in his grieving period.
Fujisaki is Tsukasa’s annoyed girl
Lilith is not the only girl in this anime. There’s also the cool-headed, dry-spirited girl Fujisaki, who has a duty to care for her employer’s daughter, Tsukasa. Not much is known about Fujisaki’s background, making her the second mystery girl in the anime, but viewers do get some hints about her own attitude and personality. Unlike Lilith, who is a playful dandere, Fujisaki has a sharp tongue and has no patience for nonsense, even pretending to announce her resignation when Tsukasa asked her to dress up as a magical maid.
Fujisaki is much more like Kaguya-SamaThat’s Ai Hayasaka, but she’s not cold either. Fujisaki generously lent Lilith a spare outfit for something like an open house at Yuuri’s school, and she also helped drive Lilith back home after the latter was stranded on an extensive shopping trip. All of this marks Fujisaki as a classic kuudere – a cool, aloof person who doesn’t show their loving side too often unless they’re with the right person.
