The debut serialization from mangaka Koharu Inoue, The Duke of Death and his Maid centers on Viktor, the titular Duke of Death.

Cursed by a witch at a young age to kill any living thing he touches, Viktor scares his family into exiling him, being sent to live in a secluded mansion deep within a forest with only his butler Rob and childhood friend Alice for companionship.

However, in spite of his curse, Viktor still manages to court the affections of Alice, who spends their time together constantly flirting with and affectionately teasing the young Duke.

Unfortunately for Viktor, he soon finds himself the target of an elaborate plot by his mother to have his younger brother replace him as the family’s heir.
