Description
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...

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

predictable

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 ...

Slightly more mature version of Marmalade Boy

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..

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.

I have to say that the initial idea for Akuma de Sorou is great but it is not sustained throughout the series. I had a bad impression of the overall plot and ending from the TW drama SO...

the main reason why I read this manga was for the art.

Takanashi Mitsuba does not do cutesy-cutesy big eyed shoujo style art, thus a large number of shoujo manga readers are unable to appreciate her drawings. Her art is more sophisticated. It is geared towards a more realistic style, her proportions are more accurate and her eye for detail is most evident throughout the series.

The overall image for Takeru is based on a real life person (hide) and I was able to recognise this almost instantly...so just for that, I give Takanashi's art skills extra credit. (:
