Brilliant and overachieving, Misaki Ayuzawa is the President of the Student Council at Seika High School, formerly a boys' school. Unfortunately, most of the students are still male and stuck in their slovenly habits, so man-hating Misaki really socks it to 'em in an attempt to make the school presentable to attract more female students. But what will she do when the sexiest boy in school finds out that after school, Misaki works in a maid cafe.
Also included in this manga is a short story called Toumei na Sekai in volume one.

After multiple failed attempts to read this, Iíve given up. All my friends were raving about how kickass Misaki is, but it was after reading Kaichou that I realized I hate tsunderes, or any characters who pretend to feel a certain way when itís painfully obvious they feel the opposite. Seriously, itís annoying as hell. Misaki may be ďtoughĒ on the outside, but she never truly gained my respect and has somewhat of an overrated reputation. All she ever does is blush in front of Usui telling him heís an idiot. Sheís also seriously underdeveloped with an unexplored past, which is not good considering sheís the main lead. But it doesnít stop there.
I am probably the only girl who dislikes Usui. Maybe just the way he treats her. It seems like heís all that, cool, badass, sexy, rich, suave ect on the outside, but his demeanor bores me. He comes across as rather teasing but not all together that emotional or deep. I see no vulnerable moments - itís always Misaki being bullied or teased ect. Their entire dynamic really confounds me and Iím surprised itís been able to work thus far. A lot of this manga is really random and the slice-of-life drama just goes on and on until you get to Usuiís past which is a good change, but what about Misakiís development? I mean, thereís barely any plot. As for the humor, itís not my type, but you may find it hilarious. The art is rather good though not the best but for shoujo lovers (sometimes I think I fall more into the shoujo critic category), this is probably a good bet for you, if you donít have my pet peeves about the characters.
Good for shoujo starters and preteens.
When I was younger, probably my middle school days (I'm a college student now), I used to like this manga quite a lot. I recently finished it and least to say, my opinion as my young adult self differs a lot from my preteen.
Characters - overall, 6.5 Barely any of them had character development and honestly, I couldn't really find anyone super duper memorable or likeable. Even the side characters, most of them - well, were just there. A few had development, but they weren't even focused on and honestly, I felt like Misaki and Usui were the same since chapter 1 aside from Misaki kind of overgrowing her hatred of men.
Usui was dull and boring and literally the definition of Gary Sue - powerful, extremely smart, good at cooking, good at every instrument (probably), superhuman abilities, rich family, sad (?) past, and good-looking. What is there not to like? The fact that he literally has no flaws which by the way, characters should have in order to be an actually GOOD character imo.
I didn't find him likeable, but I guess him being perfect is part of the comedy, right?
I didn't understand the whole Hinata likes Misaki thing - why even bother writing him as a love rival when there literally is no opening for him because Usui's too OP anyways?
Backstories - overall, 5.5 Sort of dumb tbh, I was sort of hoping for Misaki's hatred or bad judgment of men to actually come from a really deep reason, but most of it was father left family and they had to shoulder his debt and it ended up with the mother pretty much lying about him (he went to go help his friend apparently) so their daughters won't worry which was bad because they ended up resenting him and hating him instead.
Sorry, but I felt like it should have been written better instead of something so silly, but then again, this is comedy.
Usui's background was really, really out of place and random and honestly, I felt like it added A LOT of unnecessary drama and literally no character development came out of it imo.
Art - overall, 8.0 Definitely one of the reasons I did like this manga was the adorable art and of course, the maid costumes. However, I did sort of prefer the old art over the newer style. Before, it seemed more neater and cleaner and the characters were all very pretty in a simple sort of way, but later on it becomes more standard shoujo with a bunch of heavy screentones and blushing everywhere.
Romance - overall, 5.5 So basically Misaki fell in love with Usui because unlike other boys, he was the definition of 'perfect' which goes great because it turns around her bad judgment of boys - he was always there to save her, he's suave, he's a stalker, and he's a perverse creep who pulled up her skirt to see what kind of panties she was wearing - of course, this is all justified because he's hot. LOL ok
I have to admit, they had some cute moments honestly, but it was all very cliche and didn't really make me go 'doki doki' sadly as I reread it. Though, I can understand why a lot of readers love this manga a lot and love the romance in it.
It's literally a strong-willed tsundere girl (apparently, I'm sure a lot of young readers can easily relate to Misaki) who gets together with a super perfect guy (attractive appearance and all) and face a lot of really random hardships together.
Ending - overall, 8.0 I liked the ending, I like how it ended with a ten years later version of what happens next to our favorite couple and I love that in shoujo. I love what happens to the relationship in a time skip preview and I think it means a lot of readers. I wish more shoujo manga did this tbh, (-cough- Hirunaka no Ryuusei-) you know, instead of we got together and overcame a lot of stuff - the end.
One thing I have to say though that while I loved the timeskip and all, I felt like the manga dragged on way too much and would have done better if it went like the anime route (Misaki and Usui implied ending basically).

Yus. (May hold subtle but obvious spoilers)
I apologise in advance to people, as this is a rant.
For starters, this is a really good manga because, even though it follows many clichés found in shoujo manga, this makes it wonderful as it doesn't rush the story, and is the natural progression of love between a hater of men and... Usui, for lack of a better word. The fact that Misaki doesn't suddenly turn around and says "I love you!" and they live happily ever after, adds to the realism, as it takes many trials and efforts for Usui to squeeze into Misaki's heart. Also, the fact that after becoming a couple, he hatred for men doesn't diminish, but over time as she makes new friends, and even how she still acts like Misaki around Usui, even when dating.
Secondly, Misaki is tsundere. Meaning she is prone to dramatic changes which makes her ever so loveable, people who say she becomes a blushing idiot. You're the idiot, as that is the essence of tsundere, otherwise it would be just tsun, an angry, violent, unloveable female dog that would be boring for a main character. She becomes more tsundere in later chapters, but less tsun and more dere as Usui slowly becomes important to her.
Thirdly, Usui has been, from the very start, and always will be, a pervert. It's what makes Usui, Usui. It isn't forced, but a natural feature he has. For those who say it's forced or unnatural, are idiots too. If he wasn't perverted, it wouldn't make him Misaki's most incompatible guy, and therefore destroy a somewhat mismatched couple element. Also, he wouldn't have been able to break down Misaki's defences like he did.
Fourthly, Misaki doesn't change when she becomes a couple with Usui. Yes she may become more dere than tsun like she was with him, but that's the point. She changes, not to an absolute different person, but to a more open person to him, like he cracked her shell. A relationship is good if it changes people in that way.
Sorry for the rant. This is a worthwhile manga with a realistic love story, even if people have personal preferences which deny this. For me, however, it was truly the best shoujo manga I've ever read.
Okay, first of all I like this manga very much. I started reading it from 1st vol and yes it keeps dragging when it reached 3rd and 4rd vol. But I keep on with it cause I already been in love with the character of this manga. And Thank God, the story become better as long as it moves forward. I think it when the author is said to change a bit about the story and it turn out to be good. More of romance scene between Usui and Misaki is the most I like! Truthfully, I've never seen other shoujo manga that can makes me blusshing just from reading it. Most people says this manga is cliche, I think it's true. But doesn't all shoujo manga like that? But I can't be bored when reading this manga.
I have never laughed so much reading a manga. It's not about the art (I've seen my share of great artwork, but this is pretty), but the female character isn't those annoying, whiny types or the pushover, idiotic types. Sure, sometimes the "perfect" at everything gets on your nerves like most manga, but I'd give this a 10/10 just for the humor, art, and characterization.
I absolutely LOVE this manga
That's it!! This manga is soo going in my first class favorites!!
I totally recommend this manga to ALL shoujo manga maniacs(ehm..just like me) This manga story is unique with the cosplay cafe and all...the uniforms is absolutely beautiful plus there are always different kind of themes like sentai(like power rangers), little sister, guy and I'm sure a lot will be coming more...The main girl, I like her from the start!! she's spunky, pretty, powerful and the the most unique thing is that she somehow prefer to side with the girls..This is the first time for me....Also, don't forget about the art in this manga....it's perfectly divine....the mangaka really likes to draw laces(aah~..my weakness) and cool clothes/uniforms especially the gothic style maid uniform...the mangaka sure know how to make me go kya kya towards the guys...She draw them looking so devilishly handsome especially Usui-kun(kkyyaaa xD) In fact, all the characters she draw are really good.....The humor is also a wonderful add to this manga....It always makes me laugh out loud(yeah....alone in my room....my sis said that I'm crazy..ahaha) I'm positively sure that I'll never get tired of the comedy..the way Usui treat Misaki...aahhh~ utterly romantic and make my heart stop I think that this is the 1st manga I'm totally desperate for the updates or if there's none(hope not)....I'll even spend my money to buy it!! even if it's expansive(about 10USD) and I've to ride an aeroplane...akhaha
I dropped it
I don't have any right to rate this manga since i did not finish reading it. It became boring for me the moment i reached the middle part of the story since it became a drag. But i did enjoy the story at the start. I also liked the way the manga was drawn.
Double as long as it should have been.
In my opinion this manga was really really a favorite till midway when
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
they finally got together
after that the whole plot was filler filled, boring, overly sweet and overly complicated and i really disliked the ending. Loving this series so much in the beginning does leave you even more disappointed, so maybe my rating is a bit harsh. Either way, I would recommend to read this manga only till the mentioned part and drop it after that.
I'm a convert.
I'm a guy and tend to ignore shoujo like the plague but this series is seriously good. I must've gotten some of my mother's genes that likes to see a little romance in stories because I'm hooked on this manga. The humour is cute and the two protagonists are adorable. The artwork is really good and not what I expected for a shoujo manga, which just shows my lack of knowledge about the genre. If you haven't picked this series up yet then I strongly recommend you do so.
Why does it have so many favourable reviews?
After endeavouring to read Kaichou wa Maid-sama! the third time I am pleased to say that it is now on my complete list. It starts off well enough. The first 40 chapters or so were quite humorous and I had a blast while reading them. The latter half though... I have some serious complaints about it.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Misaki and Usui get together. After this their relationship becomes sooo boring. It's usui teasing her every single time, then Misaki blushes and calls him a perverted alien before giving in. Overused plot much?
Usui first transfers to Miyabigaoka and then to Britain. That's all well and fine. But for what reason? He wants to confront the "Walker" family. I didn't see any confrontation of any sort in the manga.
Igarashi Tora then offers to help Misaki to get to Britain because he wants Usui to inherit the Walker family line. He teaches her high society stuff life dancing, manners etc. They don't put any of this to use in the end because he plans to help Usui escape by making Misaki jump on the castle's rooftop in a maid uniform!! Where's the sense in this? He wanted Usui to inherit not escape! Their talk and actions were completely contradictory.
And is it necessary to have every single male character fall in love with Misaki?The part about Igarashi tora falling for her was nonsense. There was no proper development towards it.
The manner in which they talked in the latter half irritated me to death. I can't explain it, but people who have read many shoujo stuff should know. It's probably the scanlator's fault here. I am not very sure though.
By the time it ended I was so fed up that even the last chapter failed to make me smile with nostalgia.
There's absolutely no character development as well. The characters remain the same from the beginning to the end. Usui is still the cool, haunted by the past guy. Misaki remains temperamental and gets flustered easily. Yukimura is still the guy who is mistaken for a girl and a crybaby. It gets boring after a while.
I could keep complaining about this manga all day long. But in spite of all my complaining I give this a 6/10. I won't say I enjoyed it, but I didn't hate it as well. It's okay if you are into shoujo, I guess. Like Asani said before me, this would have been much more enjoyable if it had only been half as long. Suffice to say that I won't be re reading this.
