Discotek's release of Kamen no Maid Guy will include English subtitles. The company describes the series:
High school student Naeka Fujiwara is set to inherit a mega-fortune, but one day, someone who intends to steal it all makes an attempt on her life. Naeka's uber-wealthy grandfather responds by hiring a maid to protect her until her 18th birthday, when she will inherit the fortune, as well as provide more mundane support, such as cooking and cleaning, since Naeka has none of these "normal life" skills.
And so, the tough maid with advanced combat skills moves in. His name: Maid Guy Kogarashi! This super-maid solves all kinds of troubles with his Herculean body and plethora of lethal moves. Whether cleaning or protecting, Kogarashi's brand of "service" is like a devastating storm!! This collection contains the complete TV series in high definition with the original Japanese language and English subtitles!
