(小林さんちのメイドラゴン) Miss Kobayashi's Maid Dragon
An urban fantasy slice of comedy created by Cool-kyou_Shinja. The original manga debuted on May 25, 2013. It is set in the same universe as his past work. It was adapted into a 2017 anime TV series by Kyoto_Animation and directed by Takemoto Yasuhiro and written by Yamada Yuka with a soundtrack composed by Itou Masumi. The characters were designed by Kadowaki_Maki. The manga has also received a spinoff starring Kanna titled Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon: Kanna no Nichijou, which is illustrated by Kimura_Mitsuhiro.
Kobayashi is a boyish female software company employee who lives alone in an apartment. Her only friend is Takiya Makoto, one of her co-workers and a fellow otaku and drinking buddy. This changes one morning, after a night of drinking, when she wakes up to find a massive dragon right at her doorstep. Said dragon transforms into a blonde human maid and introduces herself as Tooru, asking to be Kobayashi's maid, as a way to repay Kobayashi for saving her life the previous morning and also because she has just fallen in love with Kobayashi. The nonplussed Kobayashi eventually accepts, only to discover that there are other shapeshifting dragons roaming around the city. The series follows the daily lives of Kobayashi and her newfound dragon friends as the latter try to adjust to human society.
As revealed in the afterword of its first volume, the series was originally envisioned by Cool-kyou Shinja and his editor as a boy-meets-girl style romance, but Shinja drastically altered the premise when drafting the first chapter： the male lead was turned into a boyish woman and the female love interest became a shapeshifting dragon maid. While the editor was surprised, Shinja was ultimately allowed to go with his new concept.
