I've been watching AMVs forever and I keep seeing this little maid pop up in them that's in a green dress with blue and red eyes or something like that. She keeps yelling "DESU!" all the time. I think it's even a meme now, but I missed the boat on this one. So please, what anime is the DESU maid from?

  • Have you tried KnowYourMeme.com? – OghmaOsiris Jun 29 '12 at 4:28
  • Can you be any more specific? Maybe link an amv? "Desu" is an extremely common "cutsey" thing to say instead of pronouncing it "des". – Gorchestopher H Jun 29 '12 at 4:29

    @GorchestopherH: I don't think you need to be more specific, the question is rather obviously referring to Rozen Maiden. – user1030 Jun 29 '12 at 8:35

    @JoeWreschnig Made the comment before the answer. I don't really "know memes" and a "maid who says desu a lot" technically fits a lot of characters. Wasn't aware of this particular dual-eye colored one. – Gorchestopher H Jun 29 '12 at 11:46

According to Know Your Meme the character is Suiseiseki from Rozen Maiden where she ends every sentence with "desu" (pronounced /desu̥/).

  • I know nothing of the Japanese language, lol. I'm just going off what I've researched. – OghmaOsiris Jun 29 '12 at 8:41

    @JoeWreschnig To English speakers, です sounds like "des" even though it's transliterated as "desu". The "u" in す is nearly silent. 'Tho, based on Gorchestopher's comment on the question, perhaps this character does pronounce it as the full "desu"? – Izkata Jun 29 '12 at 10:42

The character Suiseiseki from the anime series Rozen Maiden ends every sentence with desu. Im assuming that is what your talking about.

  • All of this information is already in the pre-existing accepted answer above. Your post contributes nothing. – jwodder Jun 20 '13 at 7:33
