An original take on the anime porn genre, set in 19th-century Europe, where a secret society exerts political power, controlling important figures by using a ring of professionally trained prostitutes. The ring is eventually disbanded, but Foster, the man in charge, is approached some time later by Dread Burton, a railroad tycoon who wants him to train maids to perform very particular duties-cooking, cleaning, and submitting. A surprisingly old-fashioned and distinctly British tale of poor waifs abused by rich cads, based on a computer game.
In the tradition of the Tales of . . . series Kitty Films renamed the separate episodes Maiden of Deception, Desire, Decadence, and Destruction. The second episode was not released in the U.S. due to the appearance of an underage character. The series was subsequently re-released under the umbrella title The Maiden Diaries, although its final episode, Maiden of Deliverance (releas-ed as a separate DVD), had no relation to the franchise in Japan. Instead, it was a retitling of Song of the Baby Bird (2000, Hinadori no Saezuri), another entry from the Discovery Series, of which the original Maiden Diaries were also a part. Although the original mansion was seen burning to the ground in the original series, it has now been fully rebuilt, just in time for the arrival of Carol, a spoiled railway tycoon's daughter who is accompanied by her "friend" Liz. Liz is in fact the anime's Cinderella figure, a girl pressed into service to Carol's family to pay off her own debts, and whose flirting with Foster the manservant causes Carol to order her degradation. Dungeon domination duly ensues. LNV
