Akuma to Love Song revolves around an unusual girl, Kawai Maria who was expelled from her previous school, St. Katria Girls' School, and soon transfers to Touzuka High School, a public school with low standards. Her sharp tongue and straightforward personality leads everyone to hate her with the exception of two handsome boys who eventually get involved with her. With a devil's aura like hers and an arrogant facade to pair it up with, it's just too hard to be understood. And so Maria needs to deal with bullying, adjusting, fitting in and romance. Just how will a devil like her cope with all these predicaments?

but somehow after the whole 'I love megu' things I couldn't keep up with it. It got sort of disappointing and boring so I couldn't help but dropped it. I like Maria's character and the others too. Although Megu's character is the typical cold guy,I found it interesting since he's not the cool-bastard-jerk type. Also Yuusuke is cute and I love Tomoya too. The characters are interesting but like I said,the story got kinda boring and I stopped reading it.

So I found something that's actually much more annoying than cliches...stoic female leads. I understand how people are drawn to strong personalities much better than stereotypes,but this is nothing realistic at all.
What do you expect? It's fiction,I get it,but to think that the whole bullying part was a bit too exaggerated to make it believable makes it even more annoying. should I say it? She's a very strong character yet she lacks expression and depth. She's basically lacking everything,so she's also very dull.I couldn't see anything interesting in her at all.
The plot seems interesting at first look,but upon examining the rest,it gets boring and cliched. I really did not see the point in dragging this at all.
Most of the characters were drawn beautifully,so i guess that's the only thing that seemed convincing to me.

Maria is so brutally honest that she's everyone's reality check, which is why people can't hide who they really are, and also why everyone hates her. On the other hand, she's completely able to handle the situation and solve her problems. She's a tough character and someone everyone is attracted to. There are lots of side characters that you'll love to hate and some that you'll hate to love. But this isn't a manga with any romantic moments, rather it's something more about gaining redemption and obtaining cardio fortitude.

a big letdown to a good beginning...somewhere along the way the manga lost what was good about it and after looking at the raws for the final chapter man was I even more disappointed and pissed.

- how corny it can be sometimes
- those musical things (not interested at all)
- Yuusuke, I hate monkey-like guys
- Anna, I find her annoying too.
- Nippochi is trying too much to be some kind of heavy metalist?
or how should I say it, she keeps babbling about how skulls and black are so cool
etc. that doesn't make her cool if she's surrounded by skulls. oldy 6th graders
think like that.
+ Maria x Megumi
+ Marias personality
+ Elvis Presley - Amazing Grace

Maria's past is quite scary and it's like a violent roller coaster when I first read it.
This manga is generally dramatic...what else?
However, the storyline and the characters is quite enjoyable. I like things that are slightly dramatic/or should I say over-dramatic xD because I like over-fluffy shoujo that has a bland story wave.

It may not suit everyone's taste, but it certainly suited mine xD

It was pretty good! Entertaining, to say the least. What kept me reading were the main character and the art.

Characters: 7/10

For one thing, I LOVE the main character and her personality/development. She's quite different from others you see in typical shoujo manga - she is smooth, not afraid to let out her emotions (no matter what kind - and this means that she's not afraid to cry, either). The best part about her is that she's SMART. In most shoujo manga, whenever there is a rivalry and the other girl pulls a trick, the main lead is ALWAYS oblivious to this. Not in this case. And there are MANY other examples in this manga where the heroine is depicted clever as well.

The only drawback to the characters are the side characters - bo-ring. Seriously. And trust me, I usually go for the side characters rather than the main ones. But here, it's the main characters that are interesting. Also, I really don't like how EVERY single female rival is almost always bi-polar. Once, she is sweet and innocent. Then, she's angsty and cruel. wtf? A character doesn't always have to have split personalities to be developed...sheesh!

Plot: 6/10

'cause really, it's your typical shoujo plot. Love triangles, fitting in school with others, dark past, unrequited love, bullying...blah, blah, blah. Nothing really THAT original.

Art: 9/10

AMAAAAAAZING. True, the side characters aren't much unique, but that improves in the later chapters. The shading is well done, the eyes, the facial structure, the's all beautiful.

This series drew me in quickly at first. The art is good, and the main character Maria's personality isn't like a normal heroine's. She is extremely perceptive of other people's motives, blunt in her expression of what she thinks, and hates herself. She is also strong and appears to be a good person, despite this. Her personality gives the series a comedic and dramatic element simultaneously.

The plotline itself is a fairly typical slow shoujo romance plotline and the drama is interspersed with some pretty funny comedy (Maria's "Lovely Transformation" and her like of frilly things). The series shows some (sadly very typical) Japanese school bullying, eventually develops a love polygon between most of the main characters and their friends, delves into Maria's traumatic childhood, introduces new characters as antagonists, and starts a musical subplot.

It is the unfortunate and well-documented case that most of the things happening in this series--tearing up uniforms, stealing things, messing with someone's shoes, shunning, causing mild injuries, inviting a person out and forcing them to pay for everyone's meals--are all things that happen on a regular basis in Japanese schools. Teachers do turn a blind eye or blame and punish the victim because it is better than causing a public disturbance and calling attention to. However, the series is not really about bullying, but about a smart but emotionally inept girl trying to form close relationships and to be true to her instinct for honesty and forthrightness, despite having an odd personality and a traumatic past. Bullying is just one obstacle she has to overcome, and she does it with "amazing grace."

I wonder why all comment in this page really looks down on AtLS, this series is a great with such a beautiful character and story and development.
You've got to understand why there isn't such a pure friendship between all of your friends you've already known. This manga tells the story of a what you called "the truth is not always a happiness". The main character always tells what she really thinks about other people, and she isn't wear a mask like what we always think as goodness.
Even so, what disturb me the most is this seris' romance development, which kind of strange to me, kind of forcing the ideal of the main character with the 2 hot guys. Ok that's fine, besides the main char isn't a doormat kind. I like it when she make a confrontation against the teacher and all her friends. Really a strong female lead kind, and not in physically.
