The Duke of Death and His Maid is based on the manga of the same name by Koharu Inoue. It was first serialized in Sunday Webry magazine from October 3, 2017 to May 17, 2022. 14 tankoubon volumes have been published in total. Seven Seas Entertainment releases the series in English. 

Aniplus Asia describes the anime as:

Cursed by a witch as a child, a young duke kills every living thing he touches. Shunned by the people around him, he is forced to live in solitude in a mansion deep within a forest.

Alice serves as the duke’s maid, and her existence seems to be the cause of many worries for the young man, because… Alice makes a point to sexually harass the duke every day! Despite Alice’s seduction, the duke is unable to touch her regardless of his romantic feelings.

Will the pure love between them eventually bear fruit…?!
