Living mostly by herself in her modest apartment near Tokyo, Akira Midorikawa
is the main female character of the Maid Bride
manga, and is in a dire situation: she cannot afford the steep monthly rent that she has to pay in order to maintain her apartment. Trying to resolve her money issues, she decides to offer her services as a live-in maid to her next door neighbor Kubota Arutarou, who at first isn't sure what to expect from this sudden development. As his new maid, she attempts to do the things that most maids do for their masters, but due to her shy, klutzy nature, she fails to complete the simplest tasks without breaking dishes or making a terrible mess for Kubota to clean up. Over the period of the next few weeks, Akira slowly gets more and more involved in his daily life, and by the end of the story, she is officially in a passionate relationship with Kubota as they begin their lives together as a couple.
