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"?

The art is great! I especially liked the 90s fashion spread splash pages where the characters were dressed to the nines. The story is captivatingly told, but entirely too pure. Innocent from beginning to end. And that includes after they become 'adults.' So points off for unnaturally sweet unreality and blissed out endings. But I still kinda liked it--in a guilty sort of way. It does have a moment of brilliance when the main protagonist realizes getting hurt is part of getting happy. But mostly just too. Innocent.

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 just for that, I give Takanashi's art skills extra credit. (:

At first this series started out as interesting, you know, when takeru was bullying her and stuff. Then in the middle it got a little boring. However the twists and turns made it very interesting and forced me to finish the entire thing in a day. The ending was nice. I am happy, everyone's happy. Typical, but satisfactory. Everyone loves happy endings, afterall. I would recommend this to people who like a simple story, but just get past the first few volumes. Read on!!

It was fine, I just dislike the roundabout ambiguous way Takeru expresses himself. It becomes annoying sometimes. It's a self righteous tough love that is actually useless, just say things clearly damn it -__-

I was annoyed by the fact that he decided to leave without even discussing it with her and then suddenly everyone's happy. Damn! 5 years, really? Usually when you really love someone, you want to be with them. It was just too easy for him to go away and be ok with the separation. Then Boom! happy end *Rolls Eyes*

The story was so wonderful. The characters were memorable. I agree with some of the other users that this manga seems a bit like Marmalade Boy but a bit more enjoyable. The art in the beginning was a tad bad but as the story progressed so did the mangaka's art.

The ending told in Hikaru's point of view was a cute suprise.
And the last picture made me extremely happy. I had already watched the Taiwanese drama and was greatly happy with it. After reading the manga that inspired the drama, it made me want to watch the drama again for the 5th time. So I will.

i personally isn't crazy about romance manga because most of them are cheesey and corny and boring but this one is good. The art isn't good and cute but the story makes up for it.

At first I liked this manga a lot , but the end is such a nonsense. I don't know what you think about these stories where the main couple have a lot of hard times and when all is OK one of them leave to study abroad, work around the world or to live in alaska, but I think they are bullshit. I'd like to listen to your opinion but if It were me, like hell I will be waiting 5 years for him.

Deep plot, where you can see the effort every character makes to grow up and stand the situation. They love each other just the way they are, but since the world is a defying battle, they give their best to solve all the problems around and end up together.
I like the end! It's my favorite part! I approve Takeru's decision and I think that the mangaka gave her best here to make the plot more realistic. The final chapter is soooo cute! We can see at the end how much they grew up and improved, and kind of gives me that feeling of "Oh! I'm so proud of seeing these children growing so strong!" lolololol

I tried, really, to get over the MC's cross-eyed facial expressions. I think the mangaka was going for cute, insecure and nervous. It irritated me. I did read some of the comments about the art being a bit rough and normally, I can deal with it. But the cross-eyed protagonist isn't my thing. Story-wise (as far as I was able to read up to) it wouldn't step into the boundaries of uniqueness, but was something I could've kept reading. Too bad.

The story got really good at the end but really slow moving. Artwork got better as the story went along. I LOVE the side story of the little boy so funny! Other than that I give the story a 6.9 but the side story a 10
