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.

i dont care that this anime/manga was cliche BECAUSE kaichou wa maid sama SET the cliche.

i will never recover from the hole in my heart that these MCs left behind because they just dont make MCs like this anymore. I will sell my kidney for another season or more of ayuzawa idc. Shoujo is already hard to come by but shoujo with likeable MCs are so rare these days, the slightest problem that reaches the couple will instantly break them apart but I feel like ayuzawa and usui both handled huge problems with the best attitude that made me just keep rooting for them ...

Mixed Feelings
"Kaichou wa Maid-Sama!" does not offer much new to fans of shojo romance, but its playful take on common tropes with some nods to outside genres. The basic premise is familiar: two seemingly opposite types (a somewhat unpopular but lowkey cute and talented girl and an seemingly impossibly talented and beautiful boy) share a chance encounter and grow close due to their mutual interest or activities. I would highly recommend this manga to anyone with serious interest in the genre. That said, I had some reservations along the way which tempered my enjoyment of it, and prevented me from loving it as much as I ...

Preliminary (Unknown/98 eps)
Kaichou wa Maid-sama was definitely not a great manga. I have nothing more to say about a manga with repetitive events, cliche plot, and hopelessly dull characters.

The art was just average, and nothing special, if you ignore the overused usage of sparkles, wilted flowers (that's how they look to me), and weird doily-like designs around ALL of the characters, at one point or another.

I don't have anything against a good shoujo manga with a cliche and common plot, as long as it is decent, or somewhat cute. However, for me, Kaichou wa Maid-sama did not fulfill any of those requirements. Sorry, but no matter how ...

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.
