Maria Kawai transfers from St. Katria Girls' School to Touzuka Public High School, and her arrival sparks interest for two reasons: St. Katria has an excellent academic reputation compared to Touzuka, and Maria is incredibly cute! When her classmates speculate upon her transfer to their less-than-impressive school, she flatly informs them that she was expelled for violence against her former teacher. This is characteristic of Maria—despite her angelic appearance, she will tell the unadorned truth regardless of social niceties, and as such, people often compare her to a devil.

On her first day, Maria is introduced to Yuusuke Kanda and Shin Meguro, two unlikely friends. Yuusuke pretends to be cheerful and fun-loving, but in reality, he is uninterested in many things and people. In contrast, Shin acts cold and distant, but can secretly be quite caring.

Yuusuke proposes to Maria that she should put a "lovely spin" on the things she says to make her words sound less harsh, even if her message remains the same. Unfortunately, Maria cannot master this "lovely spin" when speaking, but people seem to be touched by her voice when she sings. Can singing help Maria convey that she is lonely, that she wants to be liked by others—and most of all—that she wants to be able to like herself?

"A Devil and Her Love Song" is perhaps, one of the best Manga series I've read in a long, long time. The plot is great, and the characters are as well. I find the art style to be very unique.

The story is humorous and has a hint of romance, along with suspense. It will keep you guessing, that's for sure.

Mixed Feelings
My problem with this manga is how much I expected from it and how it ended up to be a huge disappointment. I really enjoyed the first part of the manga (though there were some hard-to-believe situations, specially when it comes to the teacher's behaviour), but at some point it just started to make no sense. From now on there will me some mayor spoilers so pls stop reading if you don't want to see them. (The conclusion is free of spoilers.)

I think you can resume this story as "look, these people are going through difficult situations, look how they'll change and how they ...

Going in, the story seems solid, characters seem to be typical shoujo but with a slight twist as our MC (Maria) has extreme awareness to people's true feelings, so it causes scenarios where characters actually need to face their flaws. personally for me, it's halfway through which starts going downhill from there. Below I'm going to write one without spoilers and one with that actually detail what's very wrong with the direction the manga goes in (again this is my opinion but I feel as if it's misleading and is looked past).

Maria's past is slowly introduced to the audience and it makes ...
