High school is difficult for most kids. But for Kayano, a shy girl whose single mother seems to work all the time, it's even worse than usual. She's so afraid of drawing attention to herself that she can't tell the handsome Kamijo how much she loves him until one day she finally gets up the courage to write him a letter confessing her feelings...

When she goes to give him the letter all her plans go awry. She's given the letter to the wrong person! Accidentally, she's given her love letter to Takeru Edogawa who just so happens to be the school principal's son, head of the delinquents and the notorious "Prince of Attraction"! To Kayano, he seems like Satan himself. Not only is he devilishly handsome, but he seems to take the utmost pleasure in making her suffer. Things only get more interesting when Kayano's mother comes home one day and announces she's getting married again --- To principal Edogawa! What will Kayano do when she has to live with this devil 24/7? How will she cope with her literal "Hell on Earth"?

This series has been adapted to Chinese live action drama under the name "Devil Beside you", starring Mike He, Rainie Yang and Kingone Wang.

At first i thought it could be a very good manga but the plot is way too simple and too predictable. 11 volumes to tell a story like this are a little too much. Anyway the main character should be an "akuma" but in reality he' s so good and caring (i don't like that he turns out to be the good guy). The thing that gets you is the art. He is very beautiful and hide-ish. This manga disappointed me, maybe if it was shorter ...

Beautiful artwork. However I swear, Takeru must spend more time than most women spend to get ready in the morning. I like how much more depth of characterization there was than Marmalade Boy. The characters are more complex and less silly. I love the ending. The story ending from the perspective of another character was very cute. The last picture made me smile.

That piece of human filth left her sad and alone for 5 years. Too bad Kayano couldn't have found someone else in order to make him suffer.

Wow did i freak when i saw the art on the first chapter but after getting through the first volume the art is so great, so do not give up! I wanted to read this one because i had seen the drama a couple of years ago and it was really addictive and just great. I still wanted some kind of closure since the ending was sort of hanging but in the manga is beautifully completed. I really enjoy this mangakas work, so far i think this was one of the best and although the drama followed the manga there are many other things included in the manga that were out of the drama. Speaking of drama, it's not as dramatic as the series thank God.

Flaws: the characters start off strong but peter out right from the get-go into one-track personalities, utilizing old trite "characternamehere is so strong, it's amazing" devices and constant, sappy, unbelievable love-triangle intrigue and other soap-opera conflicts. Takeru stops being a devil quite quickly, obviously, and there is little humor to be found.

But sometimes cliches don't appeal to people, and more often than not, they work. I can't comment inclusively, but to offer some examples of shoujo: if you adore "hater-turned-boyfriend" stories, or, perhaps, Kare Kano, or other Drama-Romance-Shoujo-Slice of Life, then this manga is probably worth your time.

I'm still at around volume 7 of the whole manga and what's really bugging me is that 80% of the time Kayano just keeps crying. Irritating at times but I do love their "moments". Hope it gets better..

It was just exhausting to me.
Art: Definitely not my thing. As they say Art is in the eye of beholder, well my beholding eye didn't like the art at all.
Characters: Annoying. Obtuse. Stupid. The only character I liked was Haru. There is the strong silent type and then there is the egoistical, egomaniacle, violent a-hole type. It doesn't mean that you belong to the first group if you just don't talk and be the main character. And if you keep getting violent, doing only stuff what you think is right without talking to anybody it rather means you belong to the 2nd one. See Takeru.
I get the softhearted dudette do right type of shoujo heroin. But maaaaaaaaaaaaaan! If you keep crying every effing single time it gets just very annoying. I am fairly certain that after the middle, btw after she said for the umpteenth time, i am going to get stronger, she started crying and then for almost an entire volume she didn't stop. Enough already!!!
Plot: The summary of the plot reads well on the paper. But it was really exhausting to get through in the manga. At one point I just wanted scream enouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuggggggggggghhhh! That's when I stopped reading.
But like I said at the beginning, Art is in the eye of the beholder and tastes differ. I do usually like strong silent types, the bad boys that are actually good boys. And the heroins that bring them out of the closet but this couple was just not it. He was too egoistic and she neeeeeeeeeeevvvvvvvvvvvverrr stopped crying for Pete's sake!

I would recommend people this manga for it's nice story and beautiful artwork, but only if you could deal with the girl crying in like EVERY CHAPTER. The story isn't too drawn out, and finishes at a good part. The ending was adorable, so overall it was a typical shoujo (with amazing artwork), and a decent story.
