Description
Akuma to Love Song revolves around an unusual girl, Kawai Maria who was expelled from her previous school, St. Katria Girls' School, and soon transfers to Touzuka High School, a public school with low standards. Her sharp tongue and straightforward personality leads everyone to hate her with the exception of two handsome boys who eventually get involved with her. With a devil's aura like hers and an arrogant facade to pair it up with, it's just too hard to be understood. And so Maria needs to deal with bullying, adjusting, fitting in and romance. Just how will a devil like her cope with all these predicaments?

but somehow after the whole 'I love megu' things I couldn't keep up with it. It got sort of disappointing and boring so I couldn't help but dropped it. I like Maria's character and the others too. Although Megu's character is the typical cold guy,I found it interesting since he's not the cool-bastard-jerk type. Also Yuusuke is cute and I love Tomoya too. The characters are interesting but like I said,the story got kinda boring and I stopped reading it.

I found this one pretty intriguing, and unlike any shoujo manga I've ever read before. The female protagonist is also unlike anyone I've ever seen before, but what she says always sort of strikes a chord within me.

Although she wants to be accepted and redeemed in the eyes of society, she doesn't try to project a desirable / agreeable image of herself that would enable her to get socially assimilated. Instead, she faces people straight on without pretenses and inadvertently forces people to confront their own negative qualities which they would rather be oblivious to. She also voices out bluntly many underlying truths beneath social interactions and relationships which people would prefer to leave hidden and unsaid, hence making her a rather unpopular figure. In doing so, she preserves her identity and sense of self, yet paradoxically condemns herself to her malicious social image ("devil") at the same time.

I guess I can't judge whether this manga will live up to its potential based on only a few chapters, but it seems quite promising though!

i really hated the girl in the beginning, but as i continued reading, i found the whole story so amazing! it's just so deep, not like other manga that are pretty shallow sometimes. this is something deeper, and it's amazing. when Kawai started singing the song, Amazing Grace, it really rang in my ears. amazing manga, two thumbs up!!!!!!!

I was originally really intrigued by this story, the characters were appealing and I was interested to see how the romance progressed. But it just seemed to me that the Mangaka was trying to make things too dramatic and thus ended up failing on the realism.
The kinds of emotions the characters were feeling and the problems they were experiencing were often utterly unbelievable, either that or they made no sense whatsoever. There was way too much angst, the bullying was completely unrealistic, the teacher's behaviour was ridiculous.
Everything just started to feel forced, forced so each chapter would have lots of action to keep the reader's attention.

Maria's past is quite scary and it's like a violent roller coaster when I first read it.
This manga is generally dramatic...what else?
However, the storyline and the characters is quite enjoyable. I like things that are slightly dramatic/or should I say over-dramatic xD because I like over-fluffy shoujo that has a bland story wave.

It may not suit everyone's taste, but it certainly suited mine xD

Wow i just totally love this girl, i hate it in manga when the girl always has to be rescude, i mean once or twice is kinda romantic but maria dosent usually need rescuing, i love watching the bullies squirm around her, amagine if she actually tried to intimidate somone, they would die of freight, she usually dosent stick up for herself, but she dosent show any emostions which works better because she cant be intimidated, shes straitforward and blunt, and strong, my favorite manga herion.

I'm completely hooked to Akuma to Love Song. It's a great manga, and Kawai Maria is an extremely unique character that I have to admit to being attracted to. Though, of course, not in that way. The art is beautifully drawn, and, even though the plot is not very original (the plot, not the character. Take note, take note), the characters are amazing.

There are the few characters that are somewhat 'typical', which contrasts Maria and makes her stand out even more. She's special, and that's what makes me love this manga so much more than I do already. Although I mostly go for cliches, this has been hooked. I keep waiting for the moment for her to break down, yet I dread it. Akuma to Love Song has got me contradicting myself, but I think that that's a good thing.

All in all, this is a masterpiece. It's a must-read, and I definitely recommend it.

I really don't know what to think of her! She's very unique. I haven'tmet a single character like her~ You should read it it's really refreshing for some reason. But I can understand that this is a manga you either hate or love. Just try it and find out. I love it so far biggrin

although this may appear similar to any typical shoujo storyline at surface glance: pretty female protagonist draws the interest of two good-looking male protagonists, and foreshadowing of an inevitable love triangle between the three -- thus far -- this manga has shown that it is anything but.

The main lead, Maria, is an extremely strong, perceptive, and intelligent female. The two main male leads, Yuusuke and Meguro serve as foils for one another, amplifying the dichotomy between their characters (but they may not be as different as they first appear). The first few chapters have done an excellent job setting up the rest of the series by revealing just enough character-development to hint at an angst-filled background for all three characters -- but not too much -- keeping the mystery intact.

It took me a long time to finally start reading this manga and I'm really glad that I've picked it up. If you like strong female leads and a storyline that doesn't just involve: girl likes boy, boy likes girl, girl and boy get together, you should definitely try this out!

The first few volumes are quite enjoyable and while the middle volumes do stray from what seemed to be the series' premise (and ratchet up the melodrama) they werent terrible, just something of a departure. But then
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
they decide to introduce the rapist of a 14 year old girl as a sympathetic character, who receives no punishment for his crime, who is forgiven by everyone and who goes on about how he loved his victim. The forgiveness angle would have been bad enough if he had to work for it, but the entire package and the way its presented just makes it feel not only vile but entirely, laughably actually, false and artifical. It shatters any suspension of disbelief and really ruined the series I think.
