Inu x Boku Secret Service is an anime television series that aired in 2012, which is based on a manga series written and illustrated by Cocoa Fujiwara. The show follows the story of Ririchiyo Shirakiin, a young girl with a sharp tongue and an unpleasant demeanor, who moves into an exclusive residential building called "Maison de Ayakashi." The building is said to be home to only the most elite and wealthy people of society, who are protected by a team of secret service agents, each with their unique abilities.

Ririchiyo's reasons for moving into Maison de Ayakashi are not clear, but it seems she is attempting to distance herself from her influential family, who have a long history of controlling and manipulating her life. She is initially hesitant to socialize with the other tenants of the building, but is soon drawn into their world of mysterious powers, supernatural beings, and hidden agendas.

The show's primary focus is on Ririchiyo's growth as a person through her interactions with the other residents and the secret service agents. These encounters help her come to terms with her vulnerabilities and past regrets, which she has been suppressing for so long. As she gets to know her fellow tenants, she realizes they all have their own issues and secrets to conceal, and they depend on the secret service agents to protect them from some external threat.

The show's developing storyline is intertwined with the characters' supernatural powers, including several references to yokai, a type of supernatural creature in Japanese folklore. These powers range from physical abilities such as super strength, to more subtle ones, such as the capacity to control objects or cause others to dream. The residents' supernatural abilities create a unique world within Maison de Ayakashi, where residents must depend heavily on one another and their protective agents.

One of the show's recurring themes is love and the complexities that come with it. Ririchiyo finds herself drawn to the male lead, Soushi Miketsukami, who is a secret service agent assigned to protect her. Soushi has a history with Ririchiyo's family, which complicates their relationship. The show portrays the pair's dynamic in a way that is subtle and nuanced, making their relationship feel real and grounded.

There are some comedic moments throughout the show, which break up the somber tone that can be present. Yuichi Nakamura brings life to his character of Kagerou Shoukiin, a wealthy and eccentric man who claims to be the building's landlord. His interactions with the other residents are often hilarious and light-hearted, though his motives and intentions are not entirely clear.

The animation in Inu x Boku Secret Service is of high quality, with a detailed and colorful art style that captures the characters' inner emotions and their supernatural abilities. The sound design is excellent, matching the tone of the show's scenes and emphasizing key moments of tensions.

Inu x Boku Secret Service is a unique show that focuses on character development and interpersonal relationships, with a supernatural backdrop. The show's narrative can take some time to pick up pace, with the initial episodes feeling slow-paced, but the payoff is well worth the wait. It's an excellent series for anyone looking for a thought-provoking, character-driven show with supernatural elements.

Inu X Boku Secret Service is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on January 12, 2012.
