Kaichou wa Maid-sama is my guilty pleasure—specifically, Usui. -- how’s that for a review opening? Too soon?

Story: 8

As many other reviews have already mentioned, the premise of this manga is cliché. I’ll admit that. It is. A “tough” girl actually works at a girly place and *gasp* of course she just HAS to be discovered by the hottest guy at school. She has to keep it a secret, and of course, with secrets, there’s blackmail. There are plenty of cliché situations in this manga but Maid Sama approaches these clichés really well and in ways that kept me interested. I never really rolled my eyes read more

Kaichou wa Maid-sama! is a shoujo manga, but it's not a very original one. The story, and the situations, have been used and reused in countless other stories. So, if you're looking for something with a lot of depth, or a lot of action, or just something a little different, this ISN'T the manga for you. However, if you want a cute story to pass the time, or are in love with shoujo, then you will probably enjoy this.

STORY - As I said, this is just another shoujo. Nothing is really special about the story, but, unlike some others, it isn't totally abominable. It's cute, read more

Kaichou wa Maid-sama is a shoujo manga with a bit of attitude and a pair of interesting main characters. It isn't entirely original, unique or different from other shoujo already fleshed out for audiences to read about but what it does do is make you laugh, make you smile and even think that maybe some hot guys could be aliens.

Story: 7 out of 10
I'm not going to lie here, the story isn't very original once you get past some key elements. Basically, you follow the life and adventures of Misaki, who is currently the "Iron Fisted" President of her now co-ed high school. With the read more

Story (6) - One of the most cliche settings and plots of a story. You can find the story countless times in many other works of manga. A basic standard shoujo manga, with the basic plots and events. Maid, poverty, boy that is almost perfect. Its what almost every shoujo manga is like. Despite being so cliche and so over-used, the author finds a way to draw the readers in still. Some point in the story it gets boring, I admit but at other points there is suspense and thrill, just makes me want to read more and more.

Art (6) - I have seen better read more

Well, the two main characters of Kaichou wa Maid-sama! are the top two students at school. The same is very much true for Special A (the plot sort of revolves around it). Also like in Special A, Misaki from Maid-sama considers Takumi her enemy while Takumi oh so obviously has an interest in Misaki. The main pairings are similar is my main point. Bascially, if you like Kei and Hikari's relationship, but want some faster development, Kaichou wa Maid-sama is a good manga to read.
the similarities are the main heroine is not too feminine, and the guy is protecting her in case of danger.
Similar sort of humour, and both have strong female leads. Both are very enjoyable too.

- Similar genre: Shoujo, Comedy, Romance, School . But Namaikizakari have "Sport".

Usui Takumi = Naruse Shou
Ayuzawa Misaki = Machida Yuki

- Female lead in Kaichou wa maid-sama is a President of the Student Council, while the Female lead in Namaikizakari is a Manager of Basketball Club.
- Male lead falling in love first with the Female lead.

If you like Usui/Misaki in KWMS, then you might like Namaikizakari!
Kazuma from Faster than a kiss really reminds me of Usui from KWMS. They are really similar, not only their appearance but also how they like to tease the girl they like =) The dynamics of both couples is really funny because of all the teasing. Also, there are some similarities between Fumino and Misaki: the guys in their school are afraid of getting beaten by them =)
In both mangas the girl falls for the guy cause guy teases the girl. Also Takumi( Kaichou wa Maid-sama) and Kyouta ( Kyou Koi wo Hajimemasu) have an unknown past.
