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.

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

I don't know what's with all the bad reviews but this manga is like the only shoujo manga that i really look forward to reading. IMO this manga is pretty good and although i didn't really watch the last couple episodes of the anime, i still love this manga nonetheless.
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.

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.
I really love this manga, but im so slow on reading it since it has a lot of heart stopping scenes that makes me go crazy!! its so good, i like usui's character tease-full and wickedly cool! and the way ayuzawa reacts on that is really cute.. hahaha
At first,it wasn't as good as i thought it would be.It was just light-hearted and full of comedy.But over-time,I started liking the flow and turns out its gonna be one of my favorite mangas.I like the way Usui gets jealous but Misaki is just too dense to know its about her >.<! I also like the fact that she works at a Cafe!~ So for this manga,i give it a 10/10.
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.

This will always be my Number One. <3
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 (i'm in love)
The main male character Usui Takumi is the love of my life. No matter how unrealistically perfect he is, I won't give up the hopes of one day snatching someone of his level. yes. I will snatch the person!
Anyways, I fell in love with the dynamic between usui and misa from chapter 1. They are both badass, determined, and independent. They have different lives, goals, and dreams. But they come together and work through their various obstacles together without abandoning their own personal dreams and aspirations. And this is what I believe to be a truly healthy relationship between lovers. I have so much respect for these two. They are the perfect tag-team, and complement each other by standing back to back, covering for one another's faults.
Unlike what the unfavorable comments say, the reason I liked this story was BECAUSE there WAS character development. Misa starts out as a stubborn and judgmental demon who hates ALL men, and is eventually tempered by Usui's natural calmness. Usui, on the other hand, becomes more passionate than before due to Misa's fiery nature, and finally has something worth fighting for. (being the sad genius that he was, life was pretty boring until Misa came along) Both of them reach a happy medium by the end, and find solace in one another. They changed themselves into better people!
Humor was also pretty nicely snugged into the series. I laughed so many times that I've lost count. And gosh, some moments of the series had ME blushing along with the characters. Ha ha.
The art is also gorgeously drawn, and Usui becomes hotter with every new release. (is that even possible?) The ONLY downside of this manga was the side characters. The side characters did not have a chance to develop as much as the main couple did. Still, a few of them changed a lot and the author never forgot about them! I just wish the manga ended earlier, because the last few chapters actually dragged the series down.

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...
it was okay until.........
I loved it but at some point it turned out to be so annoying. Misaki is supposed to be strong and smart but now she only blushes and stutters. I hate the way the mangaka tries to show usui's perverted side, it seems so forced.
