Himura Ryou, after loosing her parents, is taken in by her grandparents who are from a distinguished family. Through them, she is transfers to the famous Souseikan Academy. First day at school, Ryou receives guidance from a guy in a tuxedo when she got lost in the vast garden of the academy. When she learns that he's Kanzawa Hakuou of the shutsuji apprentice course, which is also known as "B class," Ryou...!?
Shitsuji-sama no Okinari tells a simple romantic story of a former commoner Ryou and her exclusive butler Hakuou who happens to be a cool, good-looking popular guy at their high school. The story focuses on Ryou and her honest, pure-natured personality, who treats people with respect and equality- she seems unfazed by becoming a rich person and has no qualms of being the stereotyped mean snobbish person. This quality of hers of being herself is what leads Hakuou to fall for Ryou- Ryou however seems very unfamiliar to Hakuou's feeling- although we get indications that she is beginning to like him more than a friend.
The artwork is pretty good and the two supporting roles of Hakuou's friends provide a good round of humour. Overall the manga is an enjoyable, romantic read. If one is looking for a soap-opera type over-the-top story line then this manga isn't for you. read more

This manga was an enjoyable break from a stressful life or a serious manga. It provides a fun atmosphere, comedic relief and an interesting plot. The artwork is very beautiful, I especially love the facial expressions. All the characters have interesting quirks that is consistent throughout the chapters.

Story - 8/10
The story wasn't really that bad. It was a great romance manga. However, what I dislike was the slow development of their relationship.. the two main lead in exact. I know that it's obvious that they both like each other but somehow I wish that there will be 'more' than that. I don't really exactly know what wrong but somehow I feel kinda uneasy like something is lacking from the story. What I like is that in some chapters, it makes my heart feel random emotions. Anyway, I can assure that it is worth reading.
Art - 9/10
The other reason that I read this was because of the art. For me, somehow it was kinda unique in texture or whatever you call that thing. It feels 'soft' for me. I also like how the mangaka drew the main and supporting characters. I brush off one point because of the other people. Like for example, when there is a scene in the mall, the people there wasn't really clearly done.. It was like just drawing using a brush. I can't ignore that, really.
Character - 10/10
I like each and other's personalities here especially Hakuou. I love the way he shows his jelousness and he is very caring and as well a sweet loving person even thought he doesn't look much like it. And for the heroine, I love everything about her except for her somewhat dense.
Enjoyment - 9/10
I really enjoyed this manga because as what I have said, it makes my heart show different emotions.
Overall - 9/10
Despite for some things that I dislike, I somehow still enjoyed this. Err.. that's all.:)read more
