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 read more

Granted Kaicho wa maid sama was one of my very first shoujo manga/anime and thus I am slightly biased towards it But to this day after reading so many shoujos, Kaicho still remains one of the best.


1. The Art is awesome
I dont know your defination of good art but Kaicho wa maid sama is one of mine. Even at the beginning of such a long manga when the art is usually bad compared to the ending, kaicho's art was still levels above other 5 chapter shoujo mangas. No cring worthy awkward postures and it kept gettting better.
Art is crucial to a visual entertainment such read more

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 read more

Kaichou wa Maid-sama! is a feel-good kind of shoujo manga for anyone who enjoys a happy ending and prince-like male characters.

I watched the anime some many years ago and decided to read the manga lately because I wanted to see how the couple ended up. For anyone who's watched the anime, I strongly recommend reading the manga because there are more characters and the story has more depth (yet with the same amount of clichés).

Story: Maid-sama has a bit of a Cinderella vibe to it. Misaki, the female protagonist, comes from a lower-class family who slaves away at school as School President and read more

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.
