As President of the Student Council, the overachieving feminist Misaki really socks it to the guys in an attempt to make the former all-boys' school attract a more female student body.

It's love at first fight in this shojo romantic comedy—with a whole new look at the battle between the genres!

Kaichou wa Maid-sama! is a shoujo manga, but it's not a very original one. The story, and the situations, have been used and reused in countless other stories. So, if you're looking for something with a lot of depth, or a lot of action, or just something a little different, this ISN'T the manga for you. However, if you want a cute story to pass the time, or are in love with shoujo, then you will probably enjoy this.

STORY - As I said, this is just another shoujo. Nothing is really special about the story, but, unlike some others, it isn't totally abominable. It's cute, read more

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

Kaichou wa Maid-sama is a shoujo manga with a bit of attitude and a pair of interesting main characters. It isn't entirely original, unique or different from other shoujo already fleshed out for audiences to read about but what it does do is make you laugh, make you smile and even think that maybe some hot guys could be aliens.

Story: 7 out of 10
I'm not going to lie here, the story isn't very original once you get past some key elements. Basically, you follow the life and adventures of Misaki, who is currently the "Iron Fisted" President of her now co-ed high school. With the read more

I'd heard a lot about this series and decided to give it a shot. I dropped it after the first chapter because I couldn't stand to read any more. The story was horribly cliché and I could already see how it would end: hot-headed (and highly obnoxious, in my opinion), man-hating female lead has her less-than-feministic occupation found out by her hot classmate who she will later fall in love with.

Don't get me wrong. I have nothing against a female lead with an attitude or who's different from your usual, perfect Mary-Sue lead, but I couldn't stand this girl because of all her clichéd characteristics 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.
