JG Maid DroidCinema Epoch has announced that it will be releasing Maid-Droid under its adult label, Tokyo Erotique, in the U.S.

Maid-Droid is about a boy, Ueno, who is taken care of by a robot maid named Maria, purchased by his parents from a company called Maidlord Development. Over the years, Ueno falls in love with Maria, but her batteries start to run low and a series of rapes puts droids in the hotseat.
