The first season of The Duke of Death And His Maid premiered during the Summer 2021 anime season and concluded with 12 episodes.
Seven Seas Entertainment describes the manga as:
When the duke was a young boy, a witch cast a powerful curse upon him, making it so that any living thing he touched would die. Now a young man, he lives in a sprawling mansion with only servants for his companions: an elderly butler, and his childhood friend, a busty blonde maid named Alice. Despite the curse, Alice is constantly flirting with him and seems to delight in making him blush! But how close can they truly grow as long as the curse is in place?
