In a large mansion lives a boy, an aristocrat who was cursed by the witch to "let everything he touches die." With him is his maid Alice, who besides serving him, likes to tease him. The boy who is interested in her doesn't mind the teasing, but not being able to touch her is painful!

If they are unable to hold hands, how will their love ever bloom?

"Black" Maid, huh?
r18 ftw
What was in the secret room?
People acting surprised when a slice of life manga is out here being a slice of life manga. Should go in with the mindset of wanting watch the duke and Alice be a loving couple, the curse and other plot elements are their just to serve as a checkpoint or finish line for the story.
@Isekaijin The worst part is that I'm 100% certain that that'll be how the series ends, that she ruined the lives of so many people and was such an evil person but she was just hurting and all she needed was some love and understanding.
Dang I really liked the first few chapters. I wonder if the Shonen Sunday editors wanted it to be more light-hearted to fit what's currently running in the magazine. I liked the mystery aspect of the story more.

If you're feeling apprehensive, there is plot development. I trust the author won't have the curse last his entire life...

You never know, sir. It could just be honest opinion...

@aufrive i assume you're a troll and i just fell for whatever your doing huh...
@Zaldun Oh, thanks for that. I literally stopped at chap26 lol. Well, what I meant was that he could've been an OP character with his "death touch" thing. But, in the end, was all the author's choice for him to be like that. Oh well, it sucks for him being a beta since his maid keeps taking advantage of him ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
@aufrive slice of life are just.. you know, their daily life. But the main story starts progressing around ch 60 i'd say and is currently heading towards what seems a conclusion.

And the duke can't really be anything but a "beta" since he literally kills anyone he touches...
It was starting to get a little boring. It seems like the plot doesn't change much. Lol no wonder with the slice of life tag. Like any other manga if the plot-story don't intensify and is almost the same as every chapter then goodbye. Also, the mc is a total beta, so just bruh
*breaks a table slamming my head on it*
sorry, i just came back from takamine-san and...guh, everyone is so dumb
>The dangerous person who cursed me and ruined not only my life but many others as well can't be that had of a person.
>Please don't kill her.
That's it, I'm out.
The progress is slow as fuck, the first 50 chapter are cute but too slow for a love manga
I like the manga but my parents told me not to read it because they thought it was digital black Face
As far as I'm concerned this puts Nagatoro's bullying to absolute shame lol
Alright well im dropping this for now. Maybe i'll return one day but I cant take this snails pace and constant repetition anymore. Peace.
Alice is such a huge tease
@AAA1 No, I had stopped actually. I'm gonna put it back on my reading list and will try to consume it little by little. You're right, that might work better than just rushing through it.
