Anime Network to Begin Streaming Maid-Sama on June 15

posted on by Egan Loo
1 episode each week from Spring anime based on Hiro Fujiwara's shōjo comedy

The Anime Network of North America has announced that it will start streaming the Maid Sama! anime series on June 15. The first episode will be available to Premium subscribers on that day, and then it will be available to Registered users on June 17. A new episode will follow on June 24 and every Thursday thereafter.

The anime adapts Hiro Fujiwara's Kaichō wa Maid-sama! romantic comedy manga. The story centers on a class president 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.

The anime premiered in Japan on April 1, and the 13th episode is slated to air there on June 24. Hiroaki Sakurai (Cromartie High School, Revolutionary Girl Utena) is directing the series at J.C. Staff (Honey and Clover, Azumanga Daioh). Tokyopop is publishing the fifth volume of the manga this month under the Maid Sama! title.

Update: More background information added.
