- Story -
Girl getting engaged to some guy, someone comes to protect her, realizes that she actually loves him and that he actually loved her from like 10 years ago, yeayea. We heard it all. In my opinion I think the story didn't have much ring to it; pretty cliche. You could probably predict the whole story without even reading it, actually..
- Art -
The art was probably the most strongest part of this manga. I thought the leading girl, Aria, was pretty cute and well drawn. It was neat.
- Character -
OVERUSED. Both the main characters. Useless girl that can't protect herself and doesn't have any pride; and the guy that always saves her from the bad stuff. Mhm. Nothing special. They could really be developed in a stronger way.
- Enjoyment -
Lacking. I honestly kept checking which page I was at before it finally ended.
- Overall -
This has potential, really. It wasn't HORRIBLE, but I was sorta expecting more before starting it.

Honestly, that's what I first thought after watching the first three episodes of Kaichou wa maid-sama. I've seen and read many different shoujo type anime and manga before, but somehow, this one felt very different. I wasn't sure if it was in a good way or not. However, after seeing more and more episodes and realizing that I couldn't stop..I realized something.
- The Story -
This story is actually the most cutest thing ever. But I must make one point before any of you start watching this- Its all preference, whether or not you like the typical cool, handsome, and sadistic guy paired up with a headstrong woman full of pride. The development between each character overlapping with others was wonderful; you could really tell what was going on or what kind of feelings were being portrayed through each and every one of them. However, one thing that bugged me was the storyline development itself. I'd say that the first half of this anime could use more work than the second half; because to be honest in the beginning, you get the feeling that there's no point in this story at all. However it was quickly made up by the second part with its bonding between characters and the well run scenes.
- Art & Sound -
I don't know about others, but for me, I don't really pay attention much to the art of animes simply because I like enjoying the story more than the drawings. But, I think that Kaichou wa maid-sama is one of the shoujo animes out there that has pretty good art. There really is nothing to complain about.
There really is nothing special about the sound effects too. The same things were used over and over again, especially the dramatic insert music at parts where it'll make you go "oh snap, shit just got real." But it was okay. As for the characters voices and such; It really suited them well. Personally, I thought Takumi Usui's voices really resembled Uchiha Sasuke for some reason...maybe it was just me.
- Character & Enjoyment -
Ah, my favorite thing about this anime. The thing that made Kaichou wa maid-sama such an enjoyable thing was the characters. One thing that really bugged me about some shoujos was the fact that the leading female always had to be the stupid, aloof kind of character just begging to be eaten by the male. Ayuzawa Misaki was amazing though; she has a really admirable personality and gives off a strong, independent feeling with only one weakness. Love. Its cute, really. And as for the leading male, Takumi Usui... he could use a little bit of work. Just a little.
- Overall -
Overall, this anime was really enjoyable and loving. There are scenes that might cause you to go, "Aww..that's so sweet!" and fangirl over a little. But like I said in the beginning, its a complete preference thing whether or not you prefer this kind of story. A lot of things might be prejudiced before watching this; but really, its worth it. read more
A Manga full of laughs, seriousness, and slight hints of romance. Its a wonderful and enjoyable manga and I'm surprised barely anyone reviewed on it. The Story mainly focuses on Kiri Koshiba; girl gifted with the talent of hairstyling and is the daughter of the famous hairstylist Seiji Koshiba. Her life has changed ever since she encounters the S,P (Scissors Project); three popular guys at Ryokufuu High School that gives the selected girls a beauty touch. I really liked this manga because of its style and the funniness.
I liked the Art, it was very neatly drawn and also funny. Their looks really suit their personality and you could make out right away if the character is bad or not.
Ha, My favourite thing about beauty pop. I like the characters a lot; especially Kiri. She has the i-don't-care-just-go-with-the-flow personality in her, and to me she mostly lives inside her mind. Thats what makes her so enjoyable and funny x3 Each of the characters has a different personality, but that doesn't change the laughter they can bring you.
Yeah, I enjoyed this manga a lot. It's one of those kind that keeps you reading from the very first chapter. I hope it never ends, but of course that isn't possible.
Overall, I liked it a lot. Although the Romance doesn't stick out a lot, the comedy really keeps you from wanting it. I want everyone to read it since its not very popular : (
thanks for listening. ^_^ read more

This isn't just normal tennis you see everyday. There are lots of strange, but yet interesting techniques they use while they play, such as the invisible ball and the Tezuka zone, You have to use your intelligence and stamina in order to win a game. You may find their games somehow deeply move you, as they get more intense, serious, and dramatic at the same time.
The art and how the characters are drawn are pretty amazing. Their expressions and body movements are so realistic when it comes to moving around a lot while playing a tennis game, Everything is drawn neatly and in funny ways.
I have nothing to complain about the Seiyuu's in The Prince of Tennis, they all did a wonderful job and I love how they all sound! I'd say their voices really suit the characters personality very well. I'm especially impressed with Minagawa Junko, ever since I found out Echizen was voiced by a girl. Shes so talented so have such a manly voice ^-^ Although I haven't been paying much attention to the background music sounds of the anime, I do think that Little Sky was sung very well. Dream Believer was also pretty good, since the members of Seigaku sang it. Some of them will even result you in going crazy looking for the name and who the artist is.
Characters...each and every one of them has their own different personality and look, which I find very unique and entertaining. Sometimes you can find the complete opposite personality from a character. I turned out to love all of them, even though my first impression was that they all sounded strange. I like it how all the schools first start out as rivals, but as the series slowly develops, each and every one of them start to change and become friends and allies with eachother, this is one of the most heartwarming things about this anime.
Well, I really enjoyed The Prince of Tennis, and I'm still sulking at the fact that it ended. Each and every one of the episodes captures a memory into your mind. The funniness really sticks in your head when you think about it, and the characters too, you can never forget about them.
I've grown to really like this show, and recommend you to watching it too. 178 episodes + The OVA's and specials, You'll regret it if you don't! read more

I'd say the most interesting thing about Kamichama Karin is the confusion and the things that make you wonder, "Whats happening right now? I don't get it at all" It leaves you dumbstruck for some parts, but the math behind it is simply amazing. This anime also includes not only cuteness, but sometimes a very intense atmosphere and at some times can be very random and humorous.
The Characters. They all have so many different kinds of personalities, yet that all seem so much alike at the same time. I'd say Kazune and Karin are the most interesting pair in this anime, at first their impression of eachother is low, but their relationship slowly develops as the story moves along. It's quite entertaining, and it always ends with a very heartwarming scene. Trust me, those two can possibly become another one of your favourite pairings.
As expected! The art of this anime is simply kawaii, just like Pita Ten! Karin looks so adorable in her Goddess form! Not only is it cute, but it goes so well with the story. They all have very unique looks that suite their personalities very well.
I don't have much to say now about the sounds, but one thing I found quite disturbing is when Karin high pitched screams, it kind or ruins the mood a bit, but still very enjoyable and cute. For every situation big or small, they always manage to find a perfect background music/sound for it. It may deeply move you, or sometimes even makes you laugh at all the hilarious ones.
Thats pretty much all I have to say, you'd really want to see this anime some time. I don't have anything bad to say about it, I will now continue to the sequel, Kamichama Karin Chu! read more
