SynopsisChoko Kuze is the sensible daughter of a venerable family who went bankrupt. She joins a real estate company as an entry-level office worker, but her eccentric boss is harder on her than anyone else in the company! After hearing him inadvertently call her "milady", she realizes he was the young servant boy she knew as a child. At work he's a tyrant, but after hours he insists on treating her like a lady of the nobility. Is romance even possible for a couple locked in such a crazy role reversal?

I have read the first five volumes, and I am eagerly awaiting more!
The story bascially revolves around a mistress/butler relationship - although now, many years later, they are poor. Chouka has just started working, and who should be her boss, but her previous servant, Masayuki. Whose opening question appears to be "are you a virgin?".
And this pretty much sets the tone. It is pretty much a humourous exploration of the relationship between these two. And their relationship has so many levels. That of master and servant, that of boss and subordinant, that of boyfriend and girlfriend.
I like the art. I sometimes find Chouko's chibi a bit uuuuugly, but she looks quite nice most of the time. Despite there being quite a cast of characters, everyone that you need to know is drawn well, and clearly
The characters are archetypes. Across the 5 volumes that I have read, I do see Chouko and Masayuki changing - and that is nice. The side characters are also important, and there are a few side stories that I really hope get resolved! Masayuki's character in particular I like. It is through him that a lot of the humour is worked. All in all, I have to say, I *like* the characters, and I look forward seeing where they go!
I reccomend this to people who like saucy humour. I have been laughing out loud whilst reading this. There is a lot of visual humour. and overall it is just plain funny! A lot of the humour does centre around sex, so if that is not your thing, avoid it. Otherwise, this is light, and humourous, and all in all, a lot of fun! read more
