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.

But I definitely wanted more heartpounding doki doki between you know who! It's a tale brilliantly told, if you've been following it since the inception, like me, you'll cry and laugh by the bucketloads. Especially with the way the last volume has been framed. I feel like the mangaka was given plenty of liberty to get the crazy Usui storyarc out of her system and she finally streamlined the entire story to a fitting end.
On another note, there's a recent thread I noticed on Mangafox "Is Usui a virgin".......O_o The responses are very interesting! That thread in itself is a highly recommended read hehe
My Most Fave Manga! (Be warned, spoilers ahead!)
Like 'dreamit.' , I too had first come across the anime before the manga. After watching the first episode, I was instantly hooked because it was the first time that I had come across my ideal female shoujo character. Thank God for Fujiwara-san! Anyway, I noticed how much I kind of resembled Misaki, what with my whole serious study regime and the whole boy-hating thing and that's what made me become a fan of her. Initially, I was 'creeped' out by Usui's innuendos but like Misaki, I gradually warmed up to him and ended up becoming a HUGE fan of the two. I spent countless hours reading manga hoping that they would finally become a couple and then my wish came true in Episode 4. The first thing I did? I fangirled, literally. I was all'Hallelujah! They're a couple! Yes!' I had been following the manga ever since until its conclusion. However, I gotta say. The story ended up getting dragged along too much because at times I would ask, 'Hey, when is this gonna end?' and even lost interest in reading it for a while. The ending was...I don't know, I mean I was somehow just going 'Meh...' by the time I finished the last chapter. But, overall, despite the whole story being stretched too far, I'm happy the two ended up together and that finally, Tora ended up with Chiyo. I seriously considered the guy an asshole for the way he behaved with her, oh and when he kissed Misaki, apart from her and Usui, I exploded as well and almost chucked my iPad across the room at my brother. Thank God I didn't. If it wasn't for this baby, I would never have been able to download and read the manga anytime and anyplace. So, yeah, it's an awesome manga with great art, strong characters let down by only by a script that had been dragged too long but I would recommend it to everyone who hasn't read it yet.

If you're looking for entertainment with a dash of romance involving bishies and tsunderes then this is for you.
Art work is fine, story is fine though it drags sometimes and gets neglected (dropping one trail of story for another then picking it up again, that is confusing, @.@ and inserting irrelevant stuff too).
What is good is the comedy. It managed not to get too heavy and retained its humor, unlike some shoujo mangas out there. Though it's light, its plot is still relevant.
started off with a bang...
i had to reread it all over again recently because it just ended...
i started reading this a long time ago, but when the main characters got toegether, i thought it would end...but then it went through some patches of hilariously funny things and at the end maybe there was momentum...
however, when it dragged,it REALLY dragged, and a reader could not figure out why on earth some stuff was inserted.
overall, the story was okay. the ending was good for what was needed...and it left the heroine intact if a person wanted a relatively strong(?) heroine (though after the england sequence, one had to wonder) it might've been the length of the series that was dragging, but the ending did tie up a lot of ends...i think. (time skip endings are always frustrating in a sense) yes, there are huge gaping holes in a LOT of places, but the story is pretty enjoyable
This is definitely my top favorites of all time! I watched the anime before reading the manga and completely fell in love with it! It's just so refreshing to see the main female lead to be such a strong, determined, smart and caring WOMAN. Misaki is probably my favorite female character of all time because she doesn't rely on the guy for anythning even though he's practically perfect and can do absolutely anything not to mention is a complete genius. Even though he's a total prince, she's the type of character to do things herself, with her own power, her own strength and I really admire that about her. The reason why this manga is so special is because the relationship between Misaki and Usui goes beyond physical appearance and kindheartedness that seems to be the "typical" in shoujo manga's. They have this strong relationship where they rely on their own strength instead of each others but always support and look out for one another. I also love how Usui kind of breezes through and Misaki works her ass off. It's such a contrast which makes the story very interesting! I love every single character introduced and every situation they've encountered and overcame. Loved this manga, love the main characters and side characters, loved the ending!
Charcters: Usui Takumi is pretty much the perfect guy-- just my opinion. I've actually searched for manga with similiar male characters. Ayuzawa Misaki is a strong, independent female lead and an enjoyable character but it did kind of become a bit much at times. Her stubbornness and attitude towards the end is what prompted the 8/10 rating.
Storyline: The storyline at first was adorable and I couldn't read enough of it, but around the last 30 or so chapters I started to find myself bookmarking it and coming back a week or so later. Progression went from fast to semi-slow and jumpy, as if the author was losing interest.
Overall: Even with the lack of progression and Misaki's personality at the end, I would still say that this is in the top 15 manga I've ever read. Definitely worth a read.
One of the best
Despite what anyone can say, this is one of the mangas I've read and would reread because of the comedy and slow romance it had. Besides this is one of the ones I love to read in my high school years and had made me smile when I'm feel down though I'm sad to see it end but to the very end it has been funny ^^
I'm honestly in love with this manga (all the way till the end the england arch). It's cute, funny, and a good read. It's crazy how Usui has been aiming for Misaki since Day 1 always found the love story as the subplot while Misaki's drive to make things better for everyone else as the main plot.

A Pleasant Read
I think I started reading this in 2009 when I bought the first volume at Waterstones and I was hooked. The releases were agonizingly slow and soon (after the 10th volume I think) they stopped being released entirely out here. I was mortified to say the least. It was such a briliant story. However, to my amazement I found something called scanlations and joined this awesome community of angry otakus waiting for their next fix of mangas.
Well, besides how I came across this, this story was pretty good. The first couple of volumes really grab you and hold your attention, but I think it does become a little dull. Usui dull? Blasphemy! Yeah, but it's true and sorry to the people that think this is "the best shoujo of all time." I don't like to tell people they're wrong, but there ARE much better shoujos, but this one definitely ranks high up there. The characters were great, the storyline was interesting, the drama was a bit annoying, but the ending was pleasant. Maybe not what I thought it would be, but better than some other endings that are absolute trash and makes me regret the effort I put into reading the story.
Anywho, it was good. Definitely one of those mangas every girl will probably like. Nothing to rant or rave about. It really didn't grab my heart like some other mangas do, but it DID leave a sense of lost and that "I can't believe it's over" feeling when I finished. I think that's a key quality to a good manga and shows that it left you with a big impression. So it's good, not the best, but still something that I'm sure I'll read again in the future.
I'm so sad it finished
The ending took me by surprise, though I knew it would end sooner or later. It was a good manga but it would've been unnecesary to drag it more than that. Perhaps the ending was too rushed as everything was solved in the last two or three chapters, the last one having most of it. I liked the ending anyway..
The only character I'll really miss since I love him with all my heart is Usui Takumi, the perfect man, the best of all beautiful men, because of his abilities and looks. He was perfectly drawn, it couldn't have been better and his personality was lovely >.< and captivating.
