SynopsisSeika High School, once an all-boys school notorious for its wild students and for generally being a terrifying place for girls, has recently become a co-ed school. With the female population still a minority and living in fear of the over-the-top antics of the males, Misaki Ayuzawa takes it into her own hands to reform the school and allow the girls to feel safe in the rough environment.
Training, studying and even becoming the first female student council president of the school, Misaki has gained a reputation among the male students body as an uptight boy-hating dictator and as a shining hope for the teachers and fellow female students. However, despite her tough-as-nails appearance, she secretly works part-time at a maid cafe in order to support her family. Unfortunately, her hard-earned reputation is threatened when the popular, attractive, and somewhat impassive Usui Takumi takes an interest in her after discovering her in a maid uniform after school.

Characters & Voice Actors
When news of this year's new shows began surfacing, Kaichou wa Maid-sama was near the top of the ones I was looking forward to most. I had read a little of the manga and always found it to be funny. Last year had featured a pretty good run of romance anime and this looked poised to continue that run. Despite the series' fabulous artwork and a lot of great comedy, it is unfortunately a bit of a disappointment.
The premise behind Maid-sama has an initially interesting hook. Misaki Ayuzawa is the newly elected student council president at a mostly male high school. She is strict and violent in protection of the female students and in making it a place friendlier to girls. But she has a secret that could ruin her image as the tough and unyielding class president, she works part time in a Maid Cafe to help her family with the bills. Of course this means that the ultimate alpha male at the school, Usui Takumi, will find out about her secret. Blackmail, as only shoujo can do ensues... or does it?
Thankfully the answer is no but what does follow, at least initially is a pretty fun and entertaining back and forth repartee between Misaki and Usui. Misaki is revealed to not be quite the man hating tyrant she is in school and Usui is not the cold, unfeeling ladies man either. The romantic chemistry between the two characters is quite good and builds very quickly early on. But the typical problems that plague shoujo romances soon follow. Relationship development slows to a crawl and nothing of significance happens after the first third of the series until its end. Despite this the series does end with a bang and has a very touching and satisfying conclusion which is probably the only thing that saved it from a lower overall score.
Maid-sama at its best is extremely funny and enjoyable to watch. The series' comedy is really quite good most of the time. But no amount of jokes can hide the fact that it doesn’t have any kind of story what so ever. Misaki's job at Maid Latte is mostly just a gimmick, and besides for a handful of episodes it’s totally unimportant to the plot. Basically what we get is a series of loosely connected stories with the same underlying theme. Even though they are mostly funny it gets tiring when you realize that nothing significant is ever happening. When things do finally start to get interesting between our couple, not unexpectedly a rival appears. Though he is so poorly conceived and much too late to the party to have any real significance. It was almost like someone in the production staff realized with five episodes to go that they nearly made an entire anime without a love triangle. Though despite all of this the biggest flaw is the sheer weight of supporting characters and their overall detraction to the screen time and back-story of the lead characters.
Misaki makes for a good heroine. She is quite funny walking the line between her dictator president and her submissive maid persona's. However she is a bit of your stereotypical tsundere, but it's easy to root for her. Shockingly we really don't find out all that much about her with the exception of some flashbacks of when she was a little girl (which in actuality weren't even about her). Other than learning her father had walked out on her mother and sister, leaving enormous debts and apparently they are also really poor. An aside to Misaki's family poverty though. I thought the way they portrayed her family was kind of offensive. The inside of the house is crumbling and dirty. Walls have paint peeling off them, the floor has holes in it, and their are spider webs and other cliches. Yes we get it, they're poor. Like poor people can’t keep a clean house? Besides this is completely out of character for someone as meticulous as Misaki. When you consider how fanatical she is at school about keeping things clean and orderly the very idea that she wouldn't do the same at home is totally implausible.
Usui on the other hand initially comes off as the kind of love interest I hate. Aloof, privileged, and apparently great at everything he tries he is precisely the kind of ideal man that makes shoujo romances so unbelievable. However it is pretty quickly apparent he isn't your typical leading man. You can tell he is immediately smitten with Misaki from the start and he uses this droll personality of his to push her buttons and amuse himself while at the same time bring her closer to him. I ended up liking him quite a bit. Like Misaki, his past remains as much of a mystery at the end as it was at the beginning. Especially frustrating considering the amount of time that was given to Misaki's childhood friend Shintani who basically only appeared in 4 episodes.
The supporting cast really brings down this series though. As much as I enjoyed the leads, I found the rest of the cast to be uninspired and lacking substance. The main reason for this is that there are just way too many of them. Maid-sama features nearly 30 supporting characters and they take way too much from the ones that are actually important. Even if many of them are likable and funny, they have absolutely zero depth and at best one facet to their personalities. Stories with lots of characters rarely work that well especially when the majority serve no purpose and overlap one another. Too many of them are basically identical to each other and were unnecessary. For example I know having a cross dresser is a shoujo staple but having more than one in the same anime is overkill, regardless of whether or not they both did it willingly.
The anime is well acted and I enjoyed the performances for the lead actors in particular. Though neither of them are rookies by any means, they aren’t the typical names we are used to seeing at the top of a cast either. So I enjoyed hearing some fresh voices for a change. The music is solid but unspectacular. Saya Mizuno's "My Secret" is an appropriate if kind of generic shoujo OP. Both ED songs by heidi are pretty good though and I liked them a lot more.
Artistically Maid-sama is strong. I did enjoy the character designs and the frequent use of deformed and chibi characters to complement the series comedy. The art really brings out the emotions of Misaki and Usui and is able to speak volumes about their feelings for one another even with nothing is being said. The quality of this non audible communication is one of the best I have seen in an anime.
Even though I was ultimately disappointed with this anime, it was not a complete waste of time to watch. If you enjoy Rom-Com anime then you will most likely not be sorry for watching this. The comedy is great; the romance is hit or miss.
I thoroughly enjoyed Maid Sama! for a number of reasons.
While it may not appear like the most original series, Maid Sama does diverge from the conventional tsundere-falls-in-love-with-popular-dude plotline. The protagonist Misaki is the strong and very feminist (quite often man-hating) President of her school council. Maid Sama doesn't stick with the cliche of either the ultra cool bishounen or super strong bishoujo be the best. Usui and Misaki are quite evenly matched; contrary to what some reviews state, Misaki often does NOT always need Usui to come rescue her. She is depicted as capable, feisty and caring. Misaki's a great character, the kind of girlfriend you'd want to hang out with and rely on. She makes the series compulsively watchable because she's a character you can actually admire, relate to and empathise with. If anyone is looking for a strong and likeable female protagonist, I would definitely recommend the series to them.
Maid Sama also provides pretty good humour. A lot of this comes from the gender-relation jokes, such as in how Misaki takes control of the boy-dominated school known for being vulgar and smelly. I also really enjoyed how Usui's character sort of undercuts the bishounen stereotype - although Usui's a bishounen, he's also incredibly bizarre, and is capable of saying or doing the oddest things with the calmest expression. He's kind of a semi-parody of the bishounen type, which I find really entertaining.
Maid Sama also does focus to some extent on the other characters (can't reveal exactly how without spoilers, but you're in for some surprises). Despite the somewhat deviant nature of these characters, Maid Sama casts them in a tender, affectionate light, ultimately creating some feel-good moments without downplaying how hilariously odd they are.
The anime does also have some touching moments, without being nauseatingly over the top. What I really love about this anime is its ability to convey emotions through subtext, or what is not actually explicitly said, but is instead shown. The viewer is left to infer why Usui behaves the way he does, for example, and to infer why Misaki is so ignorant of his affections (or is she?). Granted, it's in no way rocket science, this is shoujo after all, but I like that the anime builds up some tension and mystery this way, and it really engages the audience's emotions. Each episode also has plenty of events to keep you entertained.
The last thing that I love about the anime is its music. There's a piano theme in particular that I find quite moving. The composers also go to the effort of using different kinds of music, e.g. a rock theme for Usui's appearance in Ep 9. I think the music is original, appropriate and beautiful in its own right. It definitely sets the tone for the anime. The sound effects are also quite spot on.
If there was anything I would criticise about Maid Sama, it's probably that sometimes it does miss the target. A few episodes here and there seem to kind of lose their momentum, especially when focusing on side characters - it doesn't quite get their motivation right, and loses steam in its characterisation then. Some good side characters are also obviously just plot devices, and lack further depth or characterisation as a result. You end up thinking, it could have been so much more! It's a good anime, but ultimately it doesn't have that much depth because it focuses heavily on comedy. That's not a bad thing and I appreciate its focus on comedy, but if you're looking for a meaningful explanation of Misaki's man-hating psyche, you're not going to get that here. I actually like that about the anime though, it doesn't try too hard to be what it isn't, so on the whole, it remains quite spot on.
On the whole, I really enjoyed Maid Sama and I found more than enough in it to keep me thoroughly entertained, and enough to re-watch it a few times. I will definitely follow the series to the end and I really recommend that you guys check it out too, especially if you're looking for a less sexist shoujo anime and some great protagonists. Have fun! read more
In both anime the main leads are the best students in the school. However the female lead sees the male lead as her rival or her enemy and has no idea that he actually likes her.
I totally remember Special A when I watched this Anime series. Both a hilarious, competition of a guy and girl on top 1, both characters are good in martial arts. If you enjoyed watching Special A, you will definitely love Kaicho wa Maid-sama.
Kaichou wa Maid - Sama! is similar to Special A because of two main couples in each of these anime. In Kaichou wa Maid - Sama! There is Ayuzawa, Misaki and Usui, Takumi. Ayuzawa is very strongminded, and always tries to protect the girls in her school which was recently made co-ed. She tends to frighten the boys at her school with her quick temper, and masculine adrenaline. However, her character changes when she is discovered by a classmate Usui, that she works as a cute little maid in a cafe shop, where it mainly entertains male genders. Usui promises to keep her secret, but it comes as a price, and Ayuzawa hates him for this. However this hate/teasing relationship blossoms into love. In Special A it takes place at a school for children who are privileged. Hanazono, Hikari and Kei Takishima are the main couple. Hanazono is a girl who is in the school on scholarship. Her main ambition is to beat her rival Kei, who had beaten her in a competition when they were kids. Kei however is in love with Hanazono everyone knows this but Hanazono, who only feels that Kei is only teasing her rather than actually being in love with her. Hanazono is loud, headstrong, and comes off masculine at times. In the end Hanazono comes to realize her feelings for Kei. So the similarities between these two anime is about two couples who are oddly matched, but somehow ended up falling in love.
Personalities of Male/Female leads are VERY similar and the couple dynamic is similar too. Both set in a school environment. If you enjoyed Special A, you will most definitely like Kaichou wa Maid-sama too.
both are really similar, as many others have recommended. both are really funny and cute with a seemingly perfect male lead and a strong-willed, strong female lead....
The similarites for Special A is Hikari Hanazono is looks like Misaki ayuzawa form Kaicho Wa maid sama maybe their personality
Both have the same atmosphere. Guy is trying so hard to let the girl know that he loves her, yet she does not know her own feelings and is clouded by rivalry. Both are very Good Anime!
Both series are about a boy and girl who are on top off the class. This forms a bit of rivalry but also a close bond. In both the series the boy falls in love with the girl and tries to make her see that. If you're in for a romantic comedy, this is just your show!
Romatic comedies about girls with strong personalities, who "compete" with a bit eccentric, but handsome boys and later fall in love with them
Male protagonist who is always a step ahead of the heroine + romantic feelings
They have the same atmosphere. Where a strong, smart (yet ditzy when it comes to love), independent female with financial problems (tho they are NOT damsels in distress) and a smart, strong male who has a unique way of showing his love come together in everyday situations. Its a cute, comedy, high romance =]
Ps. the females are such good cooks lmao XD
#2 wants to beat #1... #1 falls in love with #2... #2 is clueless... they all lived happily ever after
Both Have love/rival theme between 2 main character
Similiar rivalry, romance, school drama setting.
Replace maids with elite student council.
both are a slice o life with school surroundings. both female characters look alike and have similar personalities of the 'never give up' kind that try to do things on their own. but are always protected/assisted/or challenged by the male character. both are great animes that are worth checking out. if you like one of them, your bound to like the other. (:
*Both have a very strong heroine GIRL ofcourse there are a lot of strong heroine girls but I find these particulary similar
* As mane girls, mane boys too are VERY similar, maybe Special A's one is more interested in love and is going towards it
* If you extremely enjoy any of these the other one will be just the right decision
* Both are heart warming and has a love story were ofourse girl is rejecting the guy because she has this wild and determined temper
VERY NICE! ;D
Girl tries to prove she's better than boy. Boy likes girl. Girl is oblivious to Boy's love to the point where you wonder if she's messed up in the head because it's so obvious.
it is very similar with kaichou wa maid sama.
both involve a poor girl(ayuzawa and hikari) who is very energetic and very strong. both work hard in thier studies and in school. both involve a boy (kei and usui) being somewhat indifferent and gradually falls in love ^^
the r both comedic and ramantic love story desuuu!! ^^
Same genres (comedy, school, shoujo, romance). Characters are also similar (Misaki and Hikari, Takumi and Kei)
Both of them has the a girl who at first dosent like the guy and happens to be great at everything in both animes, but the guy obviously likes the girl but keeps it a secert, and the guy always surpasses the girl in both animes
Both the female are hardworkers and the male is also good at what he does and very cool.
They are both Romance Comedies with love-hate relationships with the two main characters. They are both really cute!
Both animes have strong, hard-working and independent females as the lead roles.
The lead male protagonists and their relationships are also very similar. They are both the coolest and most popular boys at their school, and they both stand out from the other guys. At first they are rivals, with the male protagonists being the only ones that can beat them at anything. And the lead females are also oblivious of their romantic feelings.
the story develops between the rich and the poor.
and the story line is most likely the same
In both anime the male and the female both have the same characteristics for example in both anime the male is "number one" and the female is "number two", they male beats her in everything, the male is always saving the female, and the female is somehow always good at fighting.., while i was watching Kaichou wa Maid sama i had a slight feeling of i watched it before untill i thought of Special A!
If you watched Special A! i highly recommend you watch Kaichou wa Maid sama, or the other way around. hope you enjoy!
( My first recommendation hope i did it right)
both anime have a girl trying to overcome her "rival" and many other similarities. if you liked one, you will probably like the other.
both set in school environment
Misa-chan & Hikari 2nd place, relying on a cool guy Usui-kun & Kei
Same stuff about a poor girl who's 2nd place in everything to some popular guy that she stubbornly doesn't realize loves her.
It's both comdy/romance. And the charcters are VERY similair. Hikari has a strong will and wants to be nr. 1 and Takshima is the perfect handsome boy who is good at everything and is in with Hikari. Same goes for kaichou wa maid-sama, Misaki and Usui......
Girl characters in both end up liking the the smartest guy but, don't want to admit it
These two anime are sooo similar, they are both set in schools, and the two main characters in both are over achievers, who are pretty much amazing at everything.
Kei and Usui are literally the same person.
They both have similar comedy, aka Misaki or Hikari oblivious to Usui or Kei's obvious love for them :)
These animes, not only have a similar atmosphere throughout but it has a similar conflict, boy likes girl, girl is too naive to notice but likes him back.
Kaichou wa maid sama = Special A
Usui Takumi = Takashima Kei (Both very very smart, & look alike)
Ayzuwa Miska = Hannazo Hikari (Both look alike, Very Stoudious/smart)
Same as Usui and Misaki, Misaki dosent realize she likes Usui, Miskaki does not realize she likes him and the love slowly grows throughout the episodes.
Both Very Funny with very pretty main characters (Misaki & Hikari) Both have CUTE (sexy) boys Usui & Kei
Basically when i first started Watching Kaichou wa maid sama, i found a recommendation on Shugo Chara i was like thinking should i or should i not watch it, i mean i was like it does look cute so i was think ok i will watch it. Then after 2 episodes i was like SPECIAL A it is just like it !!!! And before i watched this anime Special A was defiantly my favorite anime but now if i were to pick which one is best they would both be first and tied, because they are both very very simuilar but one has a little but more love and one with more comedy and such and such. This is why i recommend Special A
If you are a KAICHOU WA MAID-SAMA MANIAC THEN DEFIANTLY WATCH SPECIAL A
They are similar in a way of, it has the same story, nah!nah!nah! a story that tells about a poor girl who wants to defeat an opponent (which the same happens to be a boy) in a higher rank who ends up finding her self falling in love w/ him... and in the way that these two stories are similarly has a scene's which they will need a help of that particular man! and as expected the man will suddenly appear to the rescue! woah! get it?? and similarly, there comes when the anime was about to end that the family or any relative or someone close to the man will disagree to the woman, something like that :)
Its plot has alot of similartys. if you like one you will like the other.
Both of the main characters are girls who are very hard working and consider the other guy to be their rival. Meanwhile both guys like the girl while the girls fail to realize it. They're both really good and have the same type of comedy! I love them both!
the anime is very similar to each other, but i thought that kaichou wa maid sama was way better, mostly due to the fact that special a was i thought was a bit overpowered. both protagonist are popular good looking guys who are a rich, mysterious and also excel at everything they do. Both heroines have unbelievable strength, both try really hard at everything they do and they also try land help those in need which made the protagonist interested in them.
They are so similarrrrrrrrrrrrrrr you can just tell after watching each of them.They are no of events in maid sama that are a rip off of special A.Misaki & hikari both share a rivalry with usui & kei respectively although they will do anything to go ahead of them but they can't.Also they oth are dense of their feelings towards the main male character.
Simply put the main characters in both Special A and Kaichou wa maid-sama are 99.9% the same when i first watched kaichou wa maid sama all i could study was special A just watch them both u'll see what i mean
the main characters in both of them are similar...misa and hikari are both honest,hardworking,strong,pretty smart except when it come to love.....and of course they're specialist in making cannon onigiri ....as for kei and usui they're simply perfect,rich and ready to do anything for the girl they're in love with
They're kinda simillar by looks and also in attitude .. (misaki-hikari) (usui-kei) both teams and have the love and rival atmosphere ...
Strong female and perfect guy and watch their independent nature grow to rely on others
-Girl is always second place to guy
-Guy likes girl, girl doesn't notice
-Guy always annoys girl
The characters are bery similar to each other for example, Misaki and Hikari are very competitive and Usui and Kei are calm, rich, good at a lot of things and both show more interest in the girl they like
haha its exactly like this
Both anime involves a bishounen, who is Mr. Top 1, falling in love with this Ms. Top 2, and this Ms. Top 2 doesn't realize that this Mr. Top 1 have feelings for her.
In Special A instead of a student counsil group they have a "top 7 students class/group" or the "Special A" class. In it only the top seven students of the school may get in. The protaganist in Special A, Hikari, wants to be number 1 to this class, as she is number 2 instead. She competes with her rival and childhood friend Takishima Kei in order to be number 1. Kei always teases and messes w/ Hikari like how Usui does to Misaki. Also Misaki seems to be very 'stubborn', as she does'nt feel the need to give up and she tries her best, much like Hikari in Special A. I saw many adds for this anime on this website and finally decided to give it a try. I bet that 97% of you out of 100 will tottaly and utterly enjoy this anime.
it is same to special a..........
This is similar to special a, because the main female protagonist of both anime is hardworking, poor, and is somehow involved with an 'inhuman' (they're human though) guy. The anime design is pretty much about the same with different plots. Both main male protagonists are rich too. I also recommend the manga.
Both have female leads that are strong, smart, and independent. Both have a school setting, one is prestegious and the other is in need of female demand (according to main character). Also may I say amazing lead counterparts!You basically get the same vibe from each of them.
They are similar beacuse:
1. They are both romance anime
2. The main character doen't realize she's in love only after many many charpers
3.They have moments were you want to pee your pants laughing
4. They have both cute moments
5. Characters and atmosphere are similar
Both anime to watch and enjoy ;)
both have super strong overachieving female lead with one guy who is always better than them and in love with them
Both about Love mixed with comedy. If you want more comedy, i think Kaichou wa maid-sama is the one for you. Special A leans to the love side little bit more. Both fun to watch and won't be disappointed.
Well, both protagonists are strong and pretty dense when it comes to love. And their leading man are super hot. :)
In both anime the female lead are pretty much clueless about love and are portraited as strong independent women. In both anime the male leads are in love with the female lead but due to personal reasons cannot convey it to her (except for the fact that the women don't realize that their pretty much crazy about them).
With time in both anime they realize their love for them. Both anime have also the same comedy and drawing style.
This animes main character along with special a's main character are almost the same person except for the fact that they are part of different plot lines.... But it's almost scary how much these two animes are alike!
Strong willed heroine who is completely ignorant to/ignoring the romantic feeling she has for her classmate. Very good!
The boy is the 'almost' perfect always at the top of the list, the girl is always working hard to be #1. Finally, Romantically, Girls are 'tsundere-alike' characters and boys are always teasing their feelings.
Your first impression will be "A boring anime" but try to watch it, really fun.
both main couples have similar personalities
Both shows are funny, have a romance and daily activities in every day life. Both animes also striving to their best in anyway they can.
In KwMs, the trio are the funniest of them all. Usui is the awesome character just like Takishima, their character is almost perfect. Both male leads likes a girl who is stubborn and pretty amazing ( Hikari and Misaki ).
If you liked Special A, then you might also like Kaichou wa Maid-sama. I guess there's a plenty of users who have already mentioned it, but anyways, I will just say it once more :3
The similarities are that both anime is about the relationship between a hard working girl and a talented male protagonist. The boy comes from a rish family while the girl is poor. And the most similar part is that both girls from those two anime are tump-boyish. Their personalities are like boys. However, the boy in the other side, finds it very funny to tease the girl and they develop gradually a close relationship. In Kaichou wa maid sama however, the relationship moves faster than it does in Special A. You will find it more interesting and funny to watch.
Not to mention, both anime have similar art and style. (Especially the character design of the boys)
Although the main girl isn't as dense as in Special A, both anime have plenty in common, from the guy being over affectionate without even confessing his love, to the whole competition area. Even though they're sort of similar, the storyline's completely different so yeah, pretty good anime to watch :)
both have a main heroin that possesses a strong and cheerful character while hating the main guy at first. both story has a poor girl and rich guy.
Both Animes have similar leading male & female character. Also their relation, emotions,economical status are also same. Both end in the same manner
Two powerful protagonists, Ayuzawa Misaki, and Hanazono Hikari. They both have a lover, and yet they don't even notice! The problem is Misaki, and Hikari are trying to beat their lovers.
After watching the 1st episode, Kaichou wa Maid-sama reminded me of Special A, especially the main character Misaki. Misaki and Hikari both don't like to lose.
If you want to see the exact same series all over again, then watch Kaichuo wa Maid-sama. The similarities are uncanny.
First of all, the lead male and female look similar. Then, the female belongs to a poor family. The guy is considered to be the most handsome, intelligent and strongest guy in school. The girl is intelligent and hardworking but always comes second to him. Basically, both the leads are good at everything. Then, the girl is really dense.
same shit :) amm...because I said so...
Both has a male lead with blond hair who are totally perfect in all aspects, haha.
kei and usui give off the same kind of feel like they were ment to resemble one another personality and look wise the girl they both are in love with are both clueless and do not except them as anything other then rivals they can not beat. kei and usui are also similar by the way they both risk everything to protect the ones they love its also has the same comedy feeling were the guys also sexually harasse the girls
In both anime, the main female and main male characters are basically "perfect," with the female always trying to outdo the male. Both main female characters can't cook. Both main male characters are considered cool and popular. Both have a romance between the two main characters.
Both are cute, and funny and romantic~
In both animes the main characters are really smart and strong, and the girls are both very very dense.
This show has the same feel as Special A. For sure, if you liked Kaichou wa maid-sama then you with like Special A too.They both have strong heroine characters and the male characters both have feelings that are somewhat hidden at the beginning. Both lead male characters will also try to protect the main female character as much as possible.
The main characters both male( Usui and Kei) and female( Misa and Hikari) are all actually extremely similar, respectively. Which is, for once, a great thing, because they were simply spectacular. Both shows have amazing comedy and some romance. The romance is a little angsty (more so in KwMS) but the comedy in both is very similar, in that it usually has the male lead messing with everyone else somehow :D
Special A and Kaichou wa Maid-Sama! are both similar as the two female protagonists are strong, protective over themselves and do have a crush on the male however both males are also strong, but in Special A Hikari Hanazono (female lead) isn't as strong as Kei Takishima (male lead) but in Maid-Sama Misaki Ayukawa (female lead) shows to be stronger than Takumi Usui (male lead) in one episode as she -spoiler- fought two 'bad people' just as Takumi Usui was about to come in for the rescue.
In conclusion their characters have similar personalities, they both involve heart ache and enduring love. I recommend both of these anime to anyone who enjoys romantic anime.
These two are a lot alike. Both love stories with girls who are oblivious to their feelings and the feelings of their love interest. They see the love interest as a rival or sorts.
Special A doesn't have much of the fanservice of Maid-sama, but it has adorable beta couples and just as equally a lovable cast.
I think people who enjoyed Maid-sama would also take an interest in SA.
The main character's are similar in personality. They're both romantic comedies and slice of life.
Main girl protagonists are hard working but clueless when it comes to romance.
Main guy protagonists are naturally better than the girl at everything.
The stories follow the girl protagonists slowly falling in love with the main guy protagonists.
In both anime the main leads are the best students in the school. However the female lead sees the male lead as her rival or her enemy and has no idea that he actually likes her.
and most of episode concept are alike ..
When I'm Watching Kaichou wa Maid-sama I'm thinking about something it has some similarity to the one I watch before then I remember it's almost the same with Special A both girls are competitive and the boy is ahead from them :))
These animes are really good and have:
- Romance+Comedy+School life
- A girl with a strong will.
- A boy who is capable to do anything.
There is a girl and boy who share the same relationship as Misaki and this guy He keeps annoying Misakii (like in special a) and they end up realizing they like each other and than start dating
Both have strong willed, independent girls who like to take control and be the best at everything
both main girl protagonists dont know that the boy protagonist is falling in love with them
both girls develop feelings for the boy, without them addressing the issue, and are unable to confess to the boy or their own self
both are situated in schools surrounded by the all familiar cast of slice of life comedy and reality mixing in between.
both have other boy protagonists rivals to win the girl over
both boys love to tease the girl
similar in the slow shoujo type love within school grounds, and troubles/misunderstandings along the way, but they are both pleasant to watch.
Both have very strong and stubborn female leads, and a male lead that is interested only in the female lead. Both introduce the idea of 'perfect' people, often leading to the characters performing impossible tasks that would never happen in real life. Though Maid-sama deals more with the relationship between the main leads, Special A also includes relationships between supporting characters, who have very interesting histories. They share a similar feel to them, and the art in both is great. =.=
they both involve the main guy character falling in love with the main girl and the girl is completely oblivous
both anime has same type girl main character,
strong, ambitious, but isn't sensitive with romance.
and also same boy main character,
cool, mysterious & 'perfect'.
the aim of both of girl main character is to defeat the boy.
overall the story almost same,
but i think kaichou wa maid-sama more funny.
The plots and the characters are very similar between the two. The two female leads both have very strong and competitive personalities and the way the stories unfold are very close to each other :D
The main characters look a lot similar, both the main guy characters have a secret love for the main girl characters, & both of the guy & girl main characters love each other
Similar rival type relationship at first
Special A is pretty similar to Kaichou wa Maid-sama, as the two main characters who have a romance going on between them, are rivals.But in both cases, the girl (Hikari and Misaki), is more passioned about it.
The characters are really alike, and the plot is basically the same as Kaichou wa Maid-sama. There is more "rivalry" though
The guy likes the girl, but in both, the girls are too dense to realize. Also, while both characters are strong physically and academically, they are oblivious to other people's feelings too. Neither of these are pure drama, as the contain humor too.
So both are great romantic comedies with a great guy who really likes a competitive girl but she doesnt notice him till the last few episodes.
Pretty obvious recommendation. The lead characters are similar between the shows (I liked Usui better than Kei though). And they're both romance and comedy with school related themes. The rivalry between the characters is a huge similarity. And both female leads are completely clueless. Special A went into more development on the side characters.
This anime series has everything you need if you liked Special A! From kawaii girls, to love story, to romantic stories, etc. Highly recommended
both of them are romantic and about school life , the boy falls for the girl but instead of a confession he intends to annoy the girl .... in a comedian way XD
They both have a guy that likes them.
The end kiss.
The rice related food.
The black hair.
This is so similar to Kaichou wa maid sama because they both have a leading guy and girl and they are the smartest kids in school. In both of the anime the girl doesn't know that she is in love with the guy until the very end. Both of the girls are smart, strong, and very bad cooks. You'll love both of these anime, I know I did!!!!!
Both have the very strong female characters which is very unlikely or different from the typical "frail and weak" female protagonists. It's definitely refreshing this way!
These to are very funny and amazing
This anime is great if you like Maid-Sama! The romance is cute and funny just like in Maid Sama! I loved them both and you will definitely like this if you like Maid Sama!
both of them are about a boy and a girl in highschool. the boy loves the girl but the girl will not accept it. She fights with him constantly but in the end falls in love with the boy.
They both have a main character who are incredibly strong and pretty, but in both animes there's a boy who is much stronger than them and eventually they turn into crushes. Both of the boys are very strong and good looking.
Both have very strong, determined female main characters. The girl is always behind the boy in terms of skills and smarts, and it bothers them. They refuse to lose to the boy, and try hard to beat them.
The main boys is the one who first liking the girl and they try to make the girls fall for them. They're very popular at school because of their good looks, their kind personalities and their smarts.
Similar characters and plot line. In both a cool and composed all-around talented English boy falls for a studious girl who sees the boy as her competition.
These anime's both have a rich & smart male lead, who wants the sweet & helpful female lead. The female also resists in both anime's at first. Similar & good animation as well. Also, lots of romance!
Special A is not as kinky as Kaicho wa Maid-sama but the main female characters are very similar, hard working types. Special A has something that maid sama was missing, more main charcters. and they have good intertwined back stories. The comedy is on the same level as Maid-sama and there's the same playoff of one person who is very in love and another who is not.
They both revolve around school life. The main protagonists are a boy and girl who are always trying to best the other. The girl, no matter how hard she tries, can never trump him. However, this does not stop her from persevering to try to accomplish the impossible.
Special A a class of genius in their own extend of ability. But the best is Takishima Kei a student who gets above 100% score and who call his rival Miss Second Place her name Hikari the best of all the girls physically, mentally and many more but she couldn't beat Kei.
Kei's talent is world class, similarly to Usui who manage many big companies for his family and at the same time being a student. Hikari and Misaki's alike in attitude but in affiliations are a little bit different.
Try to watch this Lovey-doopey anime. You'll enjoy it. =))
it has an interesting love story and the characters are really funny. i think that if you found kaichou wa maid-sama interesting, then you'll probably enjoy this anime as well
The humor is so similar, plus both stories are about tough women stuck in unfortunate circumstances that they come to grudgingly accept.
Both anime are about a poor girl trying to live their life. Both animes are also romance and comedy!
Both of them are romance, comedy, school and shoujo animes. I find Haruhi and Misaki very similar (both of them are poor girls trying to fit in rich crowd, funny, and act same in similar situations) like Tamaki and Takumi too (blonde bishounens, they both make you fall in love with them in a second). Both of animes are great too.
Both school stories,both main female chracters are inteligent,both cute love stories
There is a situation where the high school students are all working together and form their own group. Eventually the main character of this story also shows love for the female character who starts working as a maid or a server in this case. :]
The characters in both animes are simply amazing. Usui = Tamaki; Misaki = Haruhi
Both animes deal with heroines who are strong willed, smart, and somewhat poor.
Both series also fit into the comedy/school/slice of life genres.
I found them similar because misaki is poor same as haruhi & they both are in love with (takumi in maid sama & tamaki in OHSHC) although it took them a long time to realize their feelings.
Delicious shoujo! OHSHC has another strong willed and somewhat wrecklessly self reliant heroine with not just one but several very good looking guys looking after her (not to mention the lovely Hikaru and Kaoru twins that are "very close"). VERY worth the watch.
I LOVED these 2 animes. Ouran has always been a favorite of mine and when i was recommended Maid-sama i was a little reluctant. but after i started watching i noticed the similarities right away. if you want an anime about gorgeous boys and the tomboy with a secret that steals everyones hearts, these 2 animes are for you! the characters all have similar traits and while watching Maid-sama i was constantly making references back to Ouran! if you're a fan of Ouran then you have to watch Maid-sama and vice versa!
The development in the love story is similar;
The comedy and the events are varied in both anime..
Both anime(s) include a new event in each episode..
However, Host club is funnier :P
But the love story in maid sama is stronger :D
I loved both A LOT!
Both animes have a strong leading female role who have a secret they are trying to keep from fellow students. Both plots have key love interests and several minor love interests that develop throughout the anime.
Even though the stories may seem quite different, the hero and heroine of both shows share a lot of similarities. Tamaki and Takumi (even the names sound similar) are both rich, hot guys who all the girls fall head over heels for but they are only interested in their respective heroines Haruhi and Misaki. The heroines, Haruhi and Misaki, are both diligent girls but come from poor families; they do not care much for boys and focus more on studying and excelling at other things
The setting is also in a school and the characters both have to serve other people (ie, maid or host). They're both comedies and shoujo series.
An interesting love story between the main characters, with lots of friends around for support.
The main character girls are very tomboy like
Both have a driven lead female character that doesn't care too much about guys, and both have the main girl forced somehow to hang out with attractive guys even though they don't want to.
If you're looking for "romantic-comedy", "school-life", or even "cute anime boys" stuff, this is your best choice.
Both mainly light hearted and hilarious. Both have totally oblivious heroines and obviously crushing guys. Amazing characters with defined personalities and lots of lovable supporting characters as well. Fans of the Hitachiin brothers will definitely adore Usui, and vice-versa.
Both anime have a lot of hilarious moments and a lot of cosplaying.
The female leads from both anime, Haruhi and Misaki, are hardworking, intelligent and poor girls who finds the male lead annoying.
Tamaki and Takumi are also similar. They're mixed, rich, hot and have family problems.
I love their anime and manga.
They both have similar art styles. Also, they're both the types of story where the guy likes the girl but the girl isn't really aware of it.
Both anime include a lot of humor and some drama. Overall, these two are on my top lost of anime.
as duas personagens principais são bastante semelhantes,ambas são pobres e quem se apaixona por elas são meninos ricos.
Similar feel and humor. In Ouran, the big thing is host clubs, while in Maid-Sama the big thing is maid cafes - both of which always consist of dressing up and trying hard to appeal to their customers. And obviously the main female leads have some similar characteristics: poor, strong-willed, and followed around by some blonde boy who loves her.
this is both a funny aND romantic
The relationship between Misa-Chan and Usai are alot like the relationsihp the Main characters have in Ouran Koukou Host Club as in she's not interested in him at first and is in away oblivious. But the entire series is hilarious and this is my second favorite show to Ouran koukou Host Club!! Love it!!!
