Choko Kuze is the sensible daughter of a venerable family who went bankrupt. She joins a real estate company as an entry-level office worker, but her eccentric boss is harder on her than anyone else in the company! After hearing him inadvertently call her "milady", she realizes he was the young servant boy she knew as a child. At work he's a tyrant, but after hours he insists on treating her like a lady of the nobility. Is romance even possible for a couple locked in such a crazy role reversal?
I have read the first five volumes, and I am eagerly awaiting more!
The story bascially revolves around a mistress/butler relationship - although now, many years later, they are poor. Chouka has just started working, and who should be her boss, but her previous servant, Masayuki. Whose opening question appears to be "are you a virgin?".
And this pretty much sets the tone. It is pretty much a humourous exploration of the relationship between these two. And their relationship has so many levels. That of master and servant, that of boss and subordinant, that of boyfriend and girlfriend.
I like the art. I sometimes find Chouko's chibi a bit uuuuugly, but she looks quite nice most of the time. Despite there being quite a cast of characters, everyone that you need to know is drawn well, and clearly
The characters are archetypes. Across the 5 volumes that I have read, I do see Chouko and Masayuki changing - and that is nice. The side characters are also important, and there are a few side stories that I really hope get resolved! Masayuki's character in particular I like. It is through him that a lot of the humour is worked. All in all, I have to say, I *like* the characters, and I look forward seeing where they go!
I reccomend this to people who like saucy humour. I have been laughing out loud whilst reading this. There is a lot of visual humour. and overall it is just plain funny! A lot of the humour does centre around sex, so if that is not your thing, avoid it. Otherwise, this is light, and humourous, and all in all, a lot of fun!read more
What happens if the person you love is your superior as well as your servant? Well you got to read this manga to figure it out!
If your are looking for a really serious romance, this is not the one you should be reading. This manga is a farce (a type of comedy that uses improbable situations, physical humor and silliness to entertain).
The story revolves around these two main character: Doumoto and Chouko. Doumoto is Chouko's lover, superior, and servant. All these three panels of their lifestyle creates a humorous romance story. It is not really a serious romance but there are moments when it really gives you the feels. Most of the time the jokes are centered around 'sex', but without a doubt I have to say that those jokes were some of the best that I have read. All in all, the story is really captivating with lot of comedic plot that leaves you smiling until your cheek hurts.
Moving on, the art is perfect for the story. I mean it is not something that really excites your eyes, but something that tickles your stomach. What I mean to say is the art also uses 'unrealistic' drawing such as chibi Chouko, or people getting shot with guns (but do not die) and stuff like that to create a funny atmosphere. All Characters look unique and are easy to differentiate so I have no complain here.
There is not really much of a character development here. The manga jumps right into the story, and some of the time it goes back and forth with past and present to show the relationship between our two main characters. As soon as you read first chapter you will already get an idea of what these character will turn out to be like. It might take more then the first chapter for Chouko though. She is kind of unpredictable. Doumoto is straight forward with what he wants, so you don't really have to worry about those 'awkward' moments that happens in typical shoujo mangas. Starting off, Doumoto questions Chouko,"Are you a virgin?". That just proves how open the characters are.
This is a really funny and well drawn romance manga. Like I said, this does have quite a lot of sex jokes and if you dislike such jokes this is not your cup of tea, but if you do like such jokes...What are you waiting for?
Okay I read have only read book one but want to read the remaining seven.I had never heard about when my mom stopped by a second hand bookstore and bought me a bunch of manga such as Beauty pop,etc this book caught my attention partly because being 13 i was surprised to learn my mother failed to notice the rated m square on the front cover. I read the back and was surprised it was published by shojo beat beacause it sounded like josei to me. I decided to read it right away having nothing else to do (the tv was occupied, no anime for me) and I liked it it was funny with the chibi drawing so I give it a 8 for humour but slightly hentai with I liked. read more
