Choko Kuze is the sensible daughter of a venerable family who went bankrupt. She joins a real estate company as an entry-level office worker, but her eccentric boss is harder on her than anyone else in the company! After hearing him inadvertently call her "milady," she realizes he was the young servant boy she knew as a child. At work he's a tyrant, but after hours he insists on treating her like a lady of the nobility. Is romance even possible for a couple locked in such a crazy role reversal?

I can't begin to describe how refreshing this manga is but I gotta start somewhere eh..
CHARACTERS - As the author said, this is her first series that has a docile main female character so it was up to the male character to keep the story going. And boy was it a sweet treat! From the summary, you would expect to have a (whiny) female character who would fail miserably on her job so it's up to an overbearing, serious, cool male to come save the day. You couldn't have been more wrong! Here you have a rational female character and her hilariously perverted servant/boss/lover. I was in stitches seeing Doumoto's antics. As for side characters, they each have their own personality! They're not the type that you would see and forget the next chapter; they have their own quirks that make them truly memorable. Heck I even liked the rivals.
ART - I love this author's art especially her chibis! They are very expressive and appropriately used to give the reader the best feeling of the moment. The only thing that prevented me from giving this series a 10 is the evident decline in quality at the later chapters where you can see less to almost non-existent background dimension. It's like the author lost her shading tool or something; the images looked flat.
PLOT - The events that transpire between this couple and how they handle them is what truly makes this manga utterly refreshing. The author will present you a scenario so cliche'd that would make you think you know what's going to happen next when she suddenly pulls the rug under your feet then proceeds to make you laugh your head off! I had my whaaaaaat??!!-no-the-author-didn't-do-that priceless moments.
So if you're looking for a light-hearted, not-too-serious, hilariously funny, romance manga that is sure to knock your socks off, look no further!

The ending was kinda blah, it was a let down for me. Maybe a volume or two would have made this a better story. Some of the A-B-C story lines could have been expanded, giving the characters more depth. But Yoshihara Yuki is know for her smutty characters so...whatever. I genuinely liked this manga, so I caved in and bought the remaining three volumes (6-8). This manga in my opinion is one of the best the mangaka has ever produced.
Yoshihara Yuki is such a good mangaka, I'm never bored when reading when of her stories. It's a great mix of comedy with just enough drama to still keep you entertained. She's so good at balancing the two. I had no desire to skip any chapters.
Her stories are always over the top comedy. This one was not as over-the-top as Darling wa Namamonon ni Tsuki, but I think that just makes me like it even more. There were a lot of scenes that just makes you bite your nails anxiously, although, you never really worry for the main couple.
Quite satisfying, wish they had a few omakes on life after marriage. I look forward to more works by this woman.
Vacillated between interesting and boring
There were times when I was bored out of my mind while there were times when I found it funny. The art was nice, the sex/romance was boring but the side characters turned out to be interesting. Unfortunately, the main character, Kuze was where the problem laid. One minute she's despotic and interesting the next minute she's a whimpy bumbling fool and annoying as can be.
OMG this manga is like awesome^^" and cute and funny. hohoho it's interesting to read though theres adult themes and I knwo 60% of viewers are under 18 reading this buh oh well~ no1 cares...lol Yes anyways read this manga its funny and interesting (Y) ~~
As expected from Yoshihara Yuki, a must read
I love this manga I seriously laughed so hard atht my mo thought I was doing something illegal lol. A/ws Yuki-san did a awesome job with thia manga, she usually makes the girl into the pervy-sex crazed one but this time its the guy and I can't help but love this story even more. I wish I was someones 'Lady'
It's not really how i thought ut would be... Since it's unexpectedly funny and lovable!! And i'm pretty much sure the "mature" genre of this is not really a mature type manga but literally it is mature... I mean... Like fore mature thinker audience BUT! this manga can be read by young adults too.... It's just the wau characters talks here is very mature (there i think i got my point!) I digress... But it's really funny... Definitely reccomend this to everyone who likes a different taste of manga!!! (^_^)

Those of you guys who complains that the manga is perverted - come on, a majority of Yoshihara-san's manga falls under the Smut category, so of course it's a little ecchi.
What I like about the mangaka's work is that it's done tastefully and quite close-to-life scenarios. Her artwork's simple yet elegant at the same time - that's what make me a big fan of Yoshihara-san's work.
imo, the best yoshihara yuki work
i've read some of her work before and had always dropped them after the first volume or two. The characters were either too annoying or boring. HOWEVER, in this work, the heroine, Chouko, is likable and she doesn't spaz out like previous Yoshihara heroines. The main guy is the spaz here! =D The side characters are also really likable and funny. Those characters who came off as villains in the beginning are actually pretty nice and become good friends to the main guy and girl.
and moreover, this manga is really funny!
just the right amount of everything
I statred to read this manga because of the comments, although not very favourable, but it cought my attention, and I can say it was worth it. It is just the right amount of everything, commedy, smut and romance. There is a somewhat cliche in the chief-subordinate relationship, but still very cute, and just really funny. which suprised me. The humor is really good, and I laughed a couple of times very loudly, literraly LOL..because of the unexpected storyline at some parts. But the ending was: what the...?!?!. It really is not an ending, and I don't think this is complete manga. Perhaps it went on hiatus, or the mangaka really was forced to cut it like that...I don't know the reason, but its dissapointing. Anyway, good refreshing read, not too time consuming, and I give it a 9.
