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.

I didn't have the highest expectations when I started reading this manga, but I was already completely hooked after the first chapter. The characters are not some flat boring stereotypes, I found all of them interesting, even the ones I disliked. For the first 50 chapters or so, I thought this was one of them best mangas I ever read..

Unfortunately after that there was a few things that made me seriously pissed off. First I was slightly annoyed at how Maria's personality changes, without spoiling too much, I think she gets too caught up in her feelings and become less independent, which I found read more

The art of this series is gorgeous, especially the way Maria is drawn. If you value the aesthetic beauty of a series, I would recommend it for that alone.

The story started out as really original, starring a multifaceted heroine and several other complex characters. I was always moved reading the series, feeling deeply for Maria in everything she went through, and I loved how Maria kept fighting through everything.

At some point, a few volumes before the end of the series, it suddenly felt like I was reading a completely different story. After some struggling to put my finger on exactly why, I've come up with read more
