Movie: Maid in Akihabara

Maid in Akihabara (めいどinあきはばら Meido in Akihabara) is a 6 episode series that was produced in Japan on 2005 and released on Feb 24, 2006. Each episode ran about 15 minutes, and took place in Akihabara, Tokyo - the cyber city of Japan.

The story begins when a woman, named Saki, tries to find a job to hide from a bar gang, since she had worked at a bar before. She ends up getting a job at a Maid cafe called Meido no miyage (Maid's gift). She is the third maid to be joining the cafe. She is homeless and lives in a 24-hour internet cafe.

Obviously, as a maid in a maid cafe, she has to dress up as a maid, serving otaku customers looking for company and relaxation after, say, a long day of anime shopping or a night of waiting in line to score the perfect autograph to go on the perfect piece of anime/manga/game related merchandise. Needless to say, this world is completely foreign to Saki, but despite some initial discomfort, she tries to make the best of her situation.
