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.

the story kicks butt
i liked it to begin with because its funny and smart. i'd braced myself against the dissapointment when the "girl who thinks too highly of her abilities fails and needs the bad*ss lead male to save her" moment came around, and i was amazed, excited, thrilled (insert positive adjective here) when the lead female was bad*ss enough to take care of her own d@mn self.
i do admit the master/sub aspect intrigues me- understanding the willing submission of a proud female and the care a master gives his sub. and this story offers characters credible enough in their intelligence and common sense to allow for me to take the subject seriously. of course, that isn't the main focus of the story, though i see aspects of it poking through.

GOOD! But recent chapters...
Wow. People...can actually DISLIKE THIS!?!? WHAT!?!? I don't think people should "de-rate" anything(like mangas) unless they find it offensive. It's all based on people's opinions anyway. But for me: I. LOVE . THIS . With a fiery passion. The art is great! I love to look at the pictures. And the story line is unique! I mean, sure according to people there's "cliche's", but the way the author PUTS TOGETHER the "cliche's" and uses them is what matters. FUJIWARA Hiro does an awesome job. >
1: The character is amazing. She's strong willed, and has pride, but that makes all of the situations she goes through so interesting! 2: The situation she goes through? AWESOME. No other manga I've read has a strong willed girl fall in love with a "perfect" guy, without HUGELY changing the main character in the process.
Anyway. I could go on. Simply put:
Just read this. There's no way you'll regret it. I haven't , and I don't think I will c: .
HOLY CRAP HOLY CRAP HOLY CRAP I JUST READ CHAPTER 69 HOLY SHIZNITZELS!!! !!!!!! GAAHHH OMGGGG!!! TTFN~ TaTaForNow
PS FOR READERS WHO HAVE "lost the love" Just re-read it. Then, the whole storyline will flow together like it should, instead of the fragmented scanlation reading . (: You'll regain that "lost" love (and MORE! ) In NOOOOOOOOOOOoOOoOOOoOOoooooooOOOoOOOooooOOoOOoooOoooooo time at all ;P!
---- UPDATE A LONG WHILE LATER: ....this manga has no where else to go. Like, it's purpose was fufilled quite a few chapters ago, and now, wha? The author is just rambling. I mean WOO! *spoiler* they got together after hardships, hooray! But it still keeps going? MOre little plot twists? ....What?
This little section I just wrote seems confusing, but that's how I feel about this series now. It just keeps on going, after it should have ended happily a while ago. I don't even know. Still good! Reccommended, but dont be afraid to drop it after awhile...
I was a huge fan of this series years ago but I don't know why this won't make me feel so excited when a new chapter comes out, like it did before.
Back then the waiting the new chapter almost made me go crazy, but now its more like 'oh, a new chapter came out, I will read it later.'
I guess because I am older now so I prefer differend things but I won't drop this one, yet.
no character development
this manga started off really good and had a lot of potential. today i finished reading the 59th chapter and unfortunately, there has been no character development at all since the first chapter. The main girl is supposedly "strong" even though she failed to show her mental strength in ALL situations. well you could say that she is strong (physically, that is) and she shows it through violence. she is always thinking that she puts pressure on the main lead, but never takes any action to change that. she is also super sexist, she treats the male and female students differently. the manga was supposed to be based around how she manages her life with being both the president and a maid but latest chapters has NOTHING to do with her being a maid. the manga really got off topic. all in all, the main girl is one of the most annoying female leads out there. she doesn't express what she feels, always misunderstanding other people, very oblivious and even though she is supposed to be "smart", her character shows no sign of that. The main male lead is a typical shoujo main character. he is "best" at everything he does, and he always sticks to the female lead without any apparent reason (he started doing it from the first chapter). Their romance is not so much love but more like, i'm sorry to say, lust because it is very rare to see them having a decent conversation with each other without super blushing, pretending and lying (specially the main girl lies all the time). so there is not any development of the romance in the psychological sense. so to wrap it up, if you are reading shoujo mangas for a long time and tired of cliche stupid stories without any good plot, this is not the one for you. if you are a new shoujo reader and still don't mind plotless stories with shoujo type of romance, you will have fun reading this manga. even though a lot of parts are really boring even for a starter! just skip through the boring pages, those don't add to the manga anyways

Not the most profound story in the world, but for shoujo fans, it's worth reading. The character's personalities are well defined, and their interactions are amusing.
Misaki is a great heroine, in my opinion, in that she doesn't care what other people think and while she is very strong (physically and mentally) I think she is genuinely kindhearted. The only thing about her that grinds me a little is how much she blushes around Usui, especially when he's doing perverted things (at least she calls him on being a pervert, though).
I mostly like Usui, because he's a pretty amusing character. But I wish he would act a little less like he's better than Misaki or knows more than her. He seems to think his views on relationships are the only valid ones. But then sometimes there'll be a nice surprise, like when he told Misaki that she shouldn't do things on her own because she's a girl (classic shoujo line) and then she gets kidnapped and he goes to save her only to find her beating up her kidnappers and saving herself. Now that was funny. With anyone else, Usui might get too annoying, but with Misaki, I think I can handle him. And most of the time, he really is a funny character, and his interactions with Misaki are almost always amusing.
So I think this series is worth reading. Maybe not totally original, but still worth reading, especially if you're looking for a romantic comedy with maybe something a little deeper later on.

what drew me to this manga was the art. usui is virtually perfect in every way and the reader really doesn't know much about him. he's a mystery and only until recently does it brush the surface of his past. misaki is a tsundere, which is fine. you do have to be patient for any romance to happen.
Cliched as hell but...I can't help liking it!
Since I read it when craving the classic cliches of a shoujo manga, I was happy. Before that, I'd been catching up with the latter chapters of the shounen series (Bleach, One Piece, TRC, xxxHolic, etc) so Kaichou wa maid-sama was a light, sweet read. Oh, and I maybe biased because of Usui (*drools*). XD The concept wasn't soo original but the characters were all so loveable (I like the maid cafe's manager...she's so sweet!) so I was just hooked. Misaki was the strong, dense type; Usui was...annoyingly Usui (he looks so hot...with glasses...ahh..) and the storyline wasn't soo great...but then again, what is shoujo without its cliches?? I love it when Usui teases Misaki endlessly..aww..they're just too cute! And chapter 32 is my favorite at the moment...hehe. Read it if you're bored...no too great but...Usui.. I think everyone gets my point. >.<

Good, but gets cliched later on
I like it but at the same time, the deeper it goes the more cliched it seems with random bishounens popping out and having interest in Misaki just to make Usui jealous or angry, rinse and repeat.
It really gets too repetitive, so I think the author should stop using this overused plot. I always hated love triangles (be it Girl/guy/girl or gyu/girl/guy) or harems, so I really hope the author would just focus on the main couple (as they are awesome) without trying to force more bishounens down our throats just because she is running out of ideas.
Romance progression is extremely slow. Fault lies on Misaki on this one. She is pretty dumb for such a strong girl. But I would choose slow to the extreme over rushed, so I am all right with it. I just wish that the author would cut down with the bishies popping out lately, its really too repetitive.
omigosh this is seriously funny!
i read one chapter so funny!and it's seriously funny like special a! must read!!!
Lost the love...
I would've rated this a ten when I started reading it because it was one of those amazing mangas that got me really hooked...I'd even read until 3am even though I had class at 9 in the morning or had papers to do when I first started reading a couple of years back.
Looking back, it feels nostalgic and all, it was a really good shoujo that kind of gave off the same feel as SA...then I got bored. I dunno whats wrong with me but remembering how excited I was whenever I clicked to the next page and was like 'OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!!' and fangirl-ing like crazy, I'm seriously asking myself what the heck happened?
It was great at the start and had me on a shoujo high and I couldn't wait to read the latest chapter but then it somehow became a chore to read from chapter forty-something onward. I love Misaki and Usui and all and I'll always remember loving their hilarious romantic development. Usui's possessiveness and Misaki, the strong-willed tsundere...loved it.
And then that was it. I couldn't get myself to love the plot anymore. Cliches kept popping up. Don't get me wrong, I'm okay with cliches since it depends on how the author can use it to his/her advantage and how it is applied, how the characters are worked out. And it's pretty hard to avoid writing a cliche.
Usui is perfect. He's one of the many 'Edward Cullen's in the manga world minus the fangs and general emo-ness. I loved it at first but then it got boring. His only so called "flaw" is his possessiveness, making him even hotter/perfect-er (is that even possible?). Who wouldn't want the perfect dude monopolizing them anyway? His past is sad and has family complications and all that drama...which only adds to his allure I guess while not exactly affecting his perfectness.
One thing that got me reading this manga was 1) art and 2) Misaki's kickass self. I loved that she's so tough and all coz me no like those wimpy ass crybabies you may find in your average shoujo but I have to admit her tsundere-ness started to tick me off after some time. I just keep wondering what if Misaki suddenly became equally as agressive as Usui and then Usui would be the one all flustered, not knowing what to do. That would have been hilarious to see and I would've loved Usui more.
Sigh, even after they got through the whole 'Usui, I like you too' thing with Misaki, that was it. No more development. No more character growth (if there even was other than Misaki accepting her feelings for Usui). Only the usual plot devices trying to come in between their love. Plot devices from Usui's past, if I may add. Was his past just that? Something used for the plot to get going?
Sorry, long review. But for those just starting, this is a GREAT shoujo for you. Don't mind the nitpicking. It has good art and basically good characters and the plot fairs well.
Edit: I plan to reread this as others have recommended. I'm sure I'm gonna love it all over again and I hope it will stay that way and I'll be able to give this a ten.
