Having recently lost her mother to an illness, Russian-Japanese Misha Takanashi has become a recluse, locking herself away and playing video games, not to mention a nasty habit of chasing away any maid her father Yasuhiro hires to keep house.

Enter Tsubame Kamoi, ex-JSDF fighter pilot and the latest in a long line of maids at the Takanashi household. And much to Misha's chagrin, she may be perhaps the one maid who won't be easy prey. Let alone a ridiculously ripped lolicon who is very thirsty to be close to her, whether she wants it or not.

Uchi no Maid ga Uzasugiru! (うちのメイドがウザすぎる! / "Our Maid is Way Too Annoying!") is a Slice of Life comedy manga written and illustrated by Kanko Nakamura.

Received an anime during the Fall 2018 season. Crunchyroll has licensed the show, which can be viewed here for the following countries: note

This manga provides examples of:

  • Affluent Ascetic: Midori. Though her family is very wealthy, she joined the JSDF, and initially is hired by Misha as a way to get rid of Tsubame. When asked about the job, she simply states that she doesn't need money, and mostly working just for fun. Even when Misha and Tsubame spend a night at her family's hotel, she seemed more comfortable sleeping on the floor than on her bed.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Tsubame is ripped, and quite a feast for the eyes.
  • Animal Motif: Misha and bears.
  • Bears Are Bad News: Misha follows what she thinks is a panda in episode 10 while at the hot springs inn. But after watching it eat a fish, she realizes it's actually a brown bear. She then meets its Mama Bear, and even Tsubame exercises extreme caution when confronting it.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Tsubame does this in episode 10 when she confronts an angry Mama Bear who was about to attack Misha for being too close to her cub. Fortunately she somehow manages to defuse the situation by spouting off how she first saw Misha and fell in love with the little girl.

  • Bilingual Bonus: There’s Russian here and there around Misha’s house and in the opening and ending. For instance, the sign on the “forbidden room” that Misha doesn’t let anyone enter says Комната Мамы (Komnata Mamy), which means “Mommy’s Room”.
  • Black Comedy: It's a comedy about a child predator stalking a young girl, with no real attempt made to soften or normalize the premise. This trope is sort of inherent.
  • Bland-Name Product: “LIME” messenger (instead of LINE).
  • Bratty Half-Pint: The loss of her mother turned Misha into one. Tsubame gradually helps her overcome this so she can grow up and live a more normal life going to school and hanging out with friends.
  • But Not Too Foreign: Misha. Of the half-Russian persuasion.
  • Cassandra Truth: Misha tries to convince Yasuhiro that she saw a panda outside the capybara petting area at the hot springs. However, he doesn't believe her, since pandas aren't native to Japan. She then decides to go out and look for it on her own after he takes a nap.
  • Cross Cultural Reference: As explained in Episode 2 of the anime, Misha is named after Misha the Bear Cub, mascot of the 1980 Summer Olympic Games hosted by Moscow and protagonist of his own anime show Koguma no Misha.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Tsubame's attitude towards young girls in general. But seeing Misha caused her to leave the military in order to become her maid.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Misha gradually and begrudgingly accepts Tsubame's presence in her life as a maid hired by her father Yasuhiro, though she still gets annoyed by some of Tsubame's actions such as when she just happens to be around wherever Misha was, such as a shopping center.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Misha will often begrudgingly thank Tsubame for her help in many situations. However, Tsubame always blows it by saying they should get married, which immediately changes Misha's attitude.
  • Establishing Series Moment: The anime opens with Tsubame inquiring a job interviewer on if there were any jobs she could have young, white girls wear dresses that she had made.
  • First-Name Basis: Misha calls her father by his given name. It's later revealed he isn't actually her biological father, and instead married her mother. Despite this, he does try to take care of her as a real father.
  • Girly Bruiser: Tsubame. Ex-JSDF soldier, and lover of things adorable and girly. In the ending credits for the anime, there is a short sequence where she is practicing throwing punches. Her fluid movements and stances suggest she could beat someone up if she had to.
  • Hikikomori: Misha is one initially. After her mother passed away, she stopped going to school, and also tried to get anyone hired by her father to quit. When Tsubame shows up, she's not turned off by Misha's attempts to get her to quit, and instead gradually helps her to start living a normal life again.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Tsubame doesn't seem to realize that she, herself, is one of the child predators she despises.
  • Implacable Man: Played for Laughs when Tsubame always seems to show up wherever Misha is at, even if the latter tried not to reveal her whereabouts. While she coincidentally ran into Misha hanging out with Mimika at the shopping center, Misha is completely shocked that Tsubame just happened to be at the hot springs inn despite her precautions to avoid giving it away to avoid her. Tsubame found out by following her in her old lady disguise following Misha while she talked to Mimika about it.
  • Lethal Chef: Midori can't cook, and will often either eat military rations, or order fast food for Misha. While Misha doesn't like eating rations, she also realizes she can't keep eating takeout food indefinitely, and starts to slowly yearn for Tsubame's cooking.
  • Mama Bear: Misha runs into one in episode 10. Fortunately Tsubame shows up just in time and manages to stare it down until it loses interest in them and leaves.
  • Masochist's Meal: A literal example: Midori's cooking is horrible because she gets turned on by others' horrified reactions to it, and having to eat it herself afterwards.
  • Men Can't Keep House: Misha's father is incapable of housework, hence his need for a maid.
  • Missing Mom: Misha's mother has passed away prior to Tsubame working for her. She is seen in the first episode and in Flash Back moments.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Misha is told by Yasuhiro not to go wandering around the hot springs inn by herself in episode 10. Unfortunately she was determined to find the panda she claims she saw in the woods near the inn. She ends up getting lost, and is nearly attacked by a bear as a result.
  • Not What It Looks Like: Midori's first appearance is shown with her seemingly stalking young girls, including Misha. Though she just wanted to ask some questions, the manner in which she said it made her seem like a stalker, which prompted nearby police to chase after her.
  • Perverted Sniffing: Tsubame does this in the first episode after Misha worms out of her grip when she was bathing.
  • Potty Failure: Yui has a slight one in episode 11 after she and Mimika are scared off by various things while having a sleepover in Misha's house and trying to find the bathroom in the dark. Yui briefly mentions she peed on herself a little bit during their various run-ins with creepy things such as Misha's pets, and Midori giving herself a swirly in the bathroom.
  • "Psycho" Strings: Whenever Tsubame does something legitimately creepy, a music cord will often play. But it will also often play during a Faux Horrific moments as well.
  • Running Gag: Tsubame breaking down doors whenever she thought that Misha was in danger.
  • The Scapegoat: Tsubame does this in episode 11 when Yui and Mimika accidentally enters Misha's mother's room, which Misha explicitly stated she didn't want anyone going in. Tsubame immediately claims that she did it so that Misha's anger would be directed at her, instead of her new friends who unknowingly and accidentally entered it a few hours earlier while trying to find the bathroom.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Two examples:
    • While she professes to have interests in girls that hadn't menstruated yet, Tsubame specifically chooses to serve Misha, much to her chagrin.
    • Midori is this towards Tsubame. She fell in love with her when Tsubame first transferred to her unit which specialized in training military dogs, and found herself being ignored by both the dogs and the other soldiers after Tsubame's appearance.
  • Spaghetti Kiss: Tsubame imagines doing this with Misha in one of her fantasies.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: Misha seems to be able to communicate with her pet hamsters and ferret, who will often do what she asks such as guarding the door from Tsubame. And in episode 10, she somehow manages to get the capybaras to come to her after thinking the command.
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: When Tsubame and Midori are in the same scene, they commonly react to each other's fantasies in this way, swapping comedic roles depending on who's fantasizing at the moment. This also involves a lot of Hypocritical Humor.
  • Too Kinky to Torture:
    • Tsubame does this often whenever Misha gets mad at her and will often coldly reply for her to die or at least stop being in her life.
    • Midori, who was Tsubame's superior officer, seems to love moments where she's either being rejected, or in some cases, doing exhausting work such as shoveling snow in the middle of the night during a snowstorm.
  • Training from Hell: Misha during the ending credits in the anime. During many of the exercising scenes, she is visibly exhausted and can barely do any of them, while Tsubame, being a recently separated military veteran, has no problems whatsoever.
  • Tsundere: Misha towards Tsubame, though it's justified since a lot of the things the latter does genuinely creeps her out, such as when she mentions knowing Misha isn't wiping herself enough after using the bathroom due to the stains on her panties. And later mentioning how Misha uses more toilet paper now because of that first incident. Continually asking for the young girl's hand in marriage also justifiably turns Misha off and often angers her.
  • Unknown Rival: Yui towards Misha. She hates the attention that Misha gets due to her beauty and cool demeanor at school, and will often challenge her to a competition, such as a dressing contest and a snowball contest. Misha meanwhile finds this to be a hassle.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Tsubame takes the blame when Misha finds out someone went into her mother's room in episode 11 after finding the door open and footprints inside. She likely did this so Misha wouldn't get upset at her friends and lose them in the process, and seems rather calm despite Misha being much, much angrier and more upset than usual at her.
  • Weight Woe: Mimika in episode 9, after Misha asks if she got a little fatter. Mimika explains it was partly due to eating lots of chocolates before her brothers eat it all, and partly because she wasn't moving around as much due to the colder weather.
  • Wham Episode: Episode 12 is devoid of the typical humor of the series with major revelations such as Tsubame losing the eyesight in her one eye from illness, and Misha allows her to enter her mother's studio.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Yui, one of Misha's classmates, is often seen wearing these.
