Animax Asia has announced that it will simulcast the television anime adaptation of Hiro Fujiwara's Kaichō wa Maid-sama! shōjo comedy manga. The series will premiere on Sunday evenings starting April 4, three days after the show premieres in Japan.
The romantic comedy centers on the student council head named Misaki Ayuzawa who despises the mostly male, slovenly population at her school, which was once an all-boys school. However, Misaki's most handsome schoolmate just discovered her secret — that she works afterschool at a maid café. Tokyopop will publish the fourth volume of the manga under the Maid Sama! title on March 30.
Animax Asia has previously simulcast Tears to Tiara, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and InuYasha: The Final Act. The company broadcasts anime titles subtitled or dubbed in Hong Kong, India, Philippines, Taiwan, and other parts of South East Asia.
