From Tokyopop:

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.

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.

In my opinion this manga was really really a favorite till midway when
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
they finally got together
after that the whole plot was filler filled, boring, overly sweet and overly complicated and i really disliked the ending.
Loving this series so much in the beginning does leave you even more disappointed, so maybe my rating is a bit harsh. Either way, I would recommend to read this manga only till the mentioned part and drop it after that.

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.

First of all, the art is great. However I just can't bring myself to like it no matter what. I don't know why. It's just that I really hate guys who is too overly... Perfect? Like there's no flaws. Misaki is also the girl I really don't like. She interests me at first seeing her so strong and different from the other girls, but when it comes to Usui, aish... She turned to a normal girl to me. I really don't like the feeling? Well, it's not bad but the story really bore me! Sorry guys! ):

He wasn't trying to rape her, she asked what "seme" is (she heard it from some girl during the cross-dress day) and thus, he set an "example" of what a seme is.

Kaichou wa Maid-sama is a good manga. The art is good, there are lotsa funny moments and I like Misaki for having a tough attitude against the boys at Seika High. One thing that's disturbing is how Usui is so perfect. Sure, when the author are joking around and calling him "Perfect Human", it's kinda funny but as time passed by, you'd be pretty irritated. But this is fiction anyway, so I guess Usui being a perfect human may be forgiven. (?) XD

This is a typical cliche high school shoujo with the bizarre plots that could only be authored by adults with too much free time. The space unoccupied by unrealistic plotlines is used by a series of repetitive cafe events.

The heroine's weak. Despite her iron rule, she submits to Usui instantly in any situation, then runs away from the relationship. However, she is the character with the most dimension. The other characters have completely flimsy motivations and fail to consider basic human realities.

The male lead is shallow. He has no personality (the heroine even describes him as "alien"), only a handsome appearance (which is unexceptional, considering every other character is equally pretty). Whenever he speaks (which is rare), it's driven by plot instead of personality. He's forceful for no reason at all. (assumes a position of rape frequently) He can cook. And that's the beginning and end of his hollow personality.

The feel-good messages are completely lost in this work. However, as a silly manga of detached courtship between the two leads, it's an alright read. If you can enjoy any romance-driven shoujo, you'll enjoy this as well.

this plot really reminds me of special a, with some differences. I like how the girl can take care of herself and how when usui's being idiotish his face looks really funny and he always teases yukimura- in that way usui's funnier than takishima in special a in my opinion. I think it's a really good manga overall smile

The first time I read it, I saw it as interesting. But then after awhile I saw no plot development and dropped it for like a year. I then decided to began reading it again and saw subtle but major plot developments around Ch 20+ (in terms of relationship). Though Misaki is still dense, I mainly enjoy reading this manga now because of Usui. Though he is possessive to the point that it's borderline creepy/annoying, I see something mysterious about his background which makes me want to read more. I also enjoy seeing him drop his cool facade, which I found hilarious and adorable. But the manga it has some cliches that seem overused, I was able to get past it by skipping the chapters.

I love this series! Absolute favorite! When it comes to stores in English I am so buying them, no matter the price! That said...I understand where the critics of the series are coming from. The plot is a bit repeated, but I forgive it because I crack up every time xD

For those who are frustrated...eventually slow progress is made. Slowly but surely...have patience. =) Every manga has its quirks. And for those who say the plot isn't going anywhere, I think there is a deeper plot in store, if the subtle hints are any indictation. However, the pace is painfully slow, so once again I beg that you have patience. If you read it all the way through instead of stopping after a few chapters you might see my point.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
By the way: Chapter 32......xDD fans of Kaichou wa Maid-Sama must read! Best chapter ever! ...Kind of a spoiler but not really, as that is all I'm saying ;)
