Story

Akiba is suddenly turned into the city of nightmares, when a virus that turns people into zombies appears out of nowhere! Citizens scramble to escape, but as the virus runs rampant, it quickly turns anyone in its path.

In the midst of this all, Nagisa Hihara learns that her blood might just carry a special anti-body to counter the virus.

Given new hope, Nagisa prepares herself for battle as she sets outs to save her friend Rinka and any other survivors she may find along the way.

What decisions will these girls face as they get one step closer to learning about the events that lead to the start of this pandemic?

The fight between gun-wielding maids and zombies begins!

Characters

Nagisa Hihara (voiced by Karin Isobe)

A peppy new maid who just started working at a maid café in Akiba and makes her customers feel comforted with her warm smile.

Like many, she was a victim of the sudden pandemic that spread through Akiba, leading her to escape with Rinka, which unfortunately ended in them both getting infected. However, due to the anti-body slowing down the virus, she was able to be rescued by Kanon in the nick of time.

She makes her resolve to save Rinka and fighting the zombies by arming herself with a firearm.

Her physical prowess, vision, immunity and stamina have improved to super-human levels from the anti-bodies and virus affecting her body.

Rinka Kazane (voiced by Lynn)

A maid who works at the same café as Nagisa. The people around her view her as a calm individual, but deep down she’s just an introvert who isn’t good at socializing. Though she is the same age as Nagisa, she has more experience working at maid cafés and would teach her often. She admires Nagisa for being able to talk to anyone without giving it a second thought, unlike herself.

Her hobby is playing FPS video games. So much so that she became the second best in the world, where she is infamous in that specific field.

Arisa Hikami (voiced by Yuuki Takada)

A member of the underground idol group “Maidol 5.” She was the only one in the group who had the special anti-bodies while the rest of Maidol 5’s members were zombified, forcing her into hiding until help arrived.

Whether it’s getting attacked by a zombie, or being put in a life-or-death situation, she will always be serious about her role play. Nagisa truly respects her dedication to her craft.

Kanon Mikagami (voiced by Anzu Haruno)

Genius researcher who rescued a passed-out Nagisa and extracted samples of her anti-body rich blood to make a vaccine. Helps Nagisa to rescue Rinka.

She may look young, but she’s nearly thirty.

Plus Two More Characters To Be Announced!

Splash some specialty medicine to mend your maids!

Splash medicine onto any maids that have been zombified or maids that have run out of HP. Really give it your all when shaking the medicine, since that’ll increase its effectiveness. This is for the sake of saving troubled maids, so don’t hold back when splashing it all over them!
