Ototachibana's Shōnen Maid Manga Gets Anime Adaptation

The Twitter account for Kadokawa's B's Log Comic magazine revealed on Monday that Ototachibana's Shōnen Maid manga is getting an anime adaptation. The announcement adds that Kadokawa will reveal more details about the anime in future issues of B's Log Comic.
The manga revolves around Chihiro Komiya, an energetic elementary school student who was living with his mom. Chihiro is very good at doing housework and chores, and his mother's motto is "No work, no food." After his mother suddenly dies, a man named Madoka Taketori who claims to be his uncle shows up, and asks Chihiro to come live with him. Chihiro initially refuses, but when seeing the horribly dirty state of Madoka's rich home, he decides to start cleaning it. Then Madoka makes another offer to Chihiro: that he comes to live with him, but in exchange Chihiro will do the housework. Chihiro accepts this deal, but suddenly finds himself in a maid uniform.
Ototachibana launched the series in Enterbrain's Comic B's-LOG magazine in the April 2008 issue, and Kadokawa published the eighth compiled volume in November 2014. A limited edition of the sixth compiled volume had bundled a drama CD in 2013 starring Houko Kuwashima as Chihiro Komiya, Takahiro Mizushima as Madoka Takatori, Yoshimasa Hosoya as Keiichirō Shinozaki, Madoka Yonezawa as Miyako Ōtori, and Yuuki Kaji as Yūji Hino.
Digital Manga Inc. had announced in 2008 that it had licensed Ototachibana's one-volume Ghost Hunt Scramble manga, but the company has not yet released the title.
