If you're a fan of Japanese manga and anime, you may have seen skateboarding characters before (Misaka Yata in K comes to mind), and there's a very strong probability that you've seen maid characters before (Roberta from Black Lagoon, Ram and Rem from Re:Zero Beginning Life In Another World, etc.), but unless you're a fan of Japanese illustrator Suzusiro, you've probably never ever seen the two of them combined!

Suzusiro is an illustrator who is most famous for fusing his two passions, skateboarding and maids, into a completely new genre (which, if you ask us, is begging to be made into an anime series): the maid skater.

Let's check out some of their gnarly moves:
