Choko 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 read more

What happens if the person you love is your superior as well as your servant? Well you got to read this manga to figure it out!

If your are looking for a really serious romance, this is not the one you should be reading. This manga is a farce (a type of comedy that uses improbable situations, physical humor and silliness to entertain).

The story revolves around these two main character: Doumoto and Chouko. Doumoto is Chouko's lover, superior, and servant. All these three panels of their lifestyle creates a humorous romance story. It is not really a serious romance but there are moments when it really read more

Okay I read have only read book one but want to read the remaining seven.I had never heard about when my mom stopped by a second hand bookstore and bought me a bunch of manga such as Beauty pop,etc this book caught my attention partly because being 13 i was surprised to learn my mother failed to notice the rated m square on the front cover. I read the back and was surprised it was published by shojo beat beacause it sounded like josei to me. I decided to read it right away having nothing else to do (the tv was occupied, no anime for read more

Manga: Love Blog
These are joseis with mature humor and the girl being attracted to a guy in a workplace office setting and both are fun to read with a lot of humor but still a serious story and romance. The relationships between the characters are different, while in Chou yo Hana yo, they have a female master male servant type of relationship to start, in Love Blog she dates one guy but also falls for her boss. So while I like Chou yo better and think it's a better story, I still am enjoying the humor in Love Blog.

Manga: Eniro*Cinderella
In both mangas, the girls work under the guys and have to listen to their every demand. Both of their girls end up in a relationship with their boss, who are handsome and very perverted.

Manga: S Love
Fans of the humor in Chou yo Hana yo will probably like S Love as well. There is a sort of saucy teasing in these josei rom- coms so if you are in the mood for some good smutty romance, go ahead. Chou yo Hana yo is a lot longer, so it falls into some drama and such but S Love has not. The female lead in each realizes that the guy is someone she knew in the past so the relationships start faster because of that.

Manga: Toraware no Minoue
In each manga, the man and woman have a master-servant relationship, the woman being the master. The two fall in love fairly quickly and their relationship progresses. Just a note, but Chou yo Hana yo is a bit more mature.

Manga: Dengeki Daisy
Dengeki Daisy is shoujo and Chou yo Hana yo is josei aimed for mature audience - but they share some similarities:
- Both love interests have a master-servant relationship.
-Older guy/younger girl combination.
-The male lead takes responsibility for the girl's misfortune (in Dengeki Daisy's case, it was the heroine's brother's death; and in Chou yo Hana yo, it was her family's bankruptcy).
- Although the male lead bullies the heroine (mostly because of work), he was actually secretly in love with her.

Both involve a romantic relationship with a bodyguard/servant (chou yo hana yo is absolutely hilarious)
