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.

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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
