Anime Fans Dust Off Their Favorite Maid in New Poll

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

There was a time when maid costumes were all the rage in anime. Seemingly every romantic comedy managed to work in a maid costume until the character type expanded to include a deadly variation. Currently, maids aren't quite so common even if maid cafes still have dedicated patrons throughout Akihabara. Who are viewers favorite maids in anime and could we get another wave of French maid costumes?

Goo Ranking asked its users to pick their favorite maids of all time. The top choice is a little expected; the character is everywhere and often overshadows the anime's canon heroine. It's Rem from Re:Zero, the demon maid with a heart of gold.
