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 ...

Mixed Feelings
I read it after watching the anime. But ended up being so disappointed to the point that I had to dropped it and I couldn't even get my self to read it.

Story: The main plot sounds interesting but it ended up just like almost every normal Shoujo manga. It was so cliched and too cheesy. I don't know which direction the story wanted to go. It became so cliched and argh annoying.

Art: The art is okay, the characters all look good but the art is somewhat messy.

Characters: Now the main character Misaki is someone who the mangaka wanted to show as someone strong and ...

Preliminary (1/98 eps)
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 ...

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.
