Seika High School was an all-boys school, but it has since turned co-ed. Misaki Ayuzawa is the first female student council president of the school, eventually earning the nickname of the "Demon President" due to her mastery of Aikido and imposed iron rule.

However, Misaki harbors an embarrassing secret—she has to work at a maid café to support her family. If anybody from her school was to find out, her reputation would be utterly destroyed. And after Takumi Usui—the most popular boy at school—discovers her secret, that might just happen. Kaichou wa Maid-sama! follows their story as they spend more time together and eventually begin to understand each other's secrets.

Kaichou wa Maid-sama is my guilty pleasure—specifically, Usui. -- how’s that for a review opening? Too soon?

Story: 8

As many other reviews have already mentioned, the premise of this manga is cliché. I’ll admit that. It is. A “tough” girl actually works at a girly place and *gasp* of course she just HAS to be discovered by the hottest guy at school. She has to keep it a secret, and of course, with secrets, there’s blackmail. There are plenty of cliché situations in this manga but Maid Sama approaches these clichés really well and in ways that kept me interested. I never really rolled my eyes ...

This is probably my first review for a manga. So here goes.

After losing hope for Kaichou wa Maid-sama after the cliff-hangy ending in the anime. I still had hope and discovered the manga. And oh boy, it fixed everything. After reading the manga, I felt really relieved. No more cliff-hangers, No more sad feelings, just happiness and relieves.

The manga wrapped everything up great. There's nothing to criticize and at the same time I can't come up with anything else that is positive to say because it is already a perfect ending to the anime. So I'll just give my regards.

This was one of the very first mangas that I had started to read when I had gotten interested into reading manga so much. It's a great story with great characters and to me it's an original piece of work compared to other soft shoujo mangas. I latched onto it immediately and loved it!If your looking for a first time read then this is definitely the one your looking for.
ART-The art is beautiful, and not messy looking.
STORY-The story is cute, simple like a teenagers everyday type of life going to school and whatnot. Introducing a wide range of feelings to the reader and it makes ...

Four Important Life Lessons From Kaichou wa Maid-Sama

Kaichou wa Maid-Sama has more to offer than cute girls in costumes. It contains themes of loyalty, hubris, rivalries and that people are more than the front they present. All while managing to put a smile on the face of viewers.
