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.

Lost the love...
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.

@akira_mizunashi: 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
nice plot :)
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
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.

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 ;)

It's good i get a lil tired of her though but i can relate to her as well ( im kinda a man hater to ) But hey over all it's a good read
I wasn't an otaku at all...
until I read this! I was about to quit manga/anime for the rest of my life until this!! This manga has such wonderful, gorgeous, spicy, delicious... characters and I love the ironies that occur in the plots! I literally laughed out loud while reading through this series. Yes, it was THAT wonderful! (But because I'm not a natural manga-lover, I also skipped some parts of the manga when it got too cutesy with the other characters..I just didn't miss any moments with Masaki&Takumi.. and oh, President Igarashi too!)
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It's sad it's coming to an end though. Although we all know this feel-good manga will end with Misaki and Takumi together, I still want to see some tension going on with Tora Igarashi. It was just too little! His sneaky character did not even make a last act to pursuit for Masaki. He just confessed to her and now this manga's ending?! There's too many loose ends to this story that can be tied into a beautiful rope (including with the royal family issue, the author hinted further development but I hope she goes through with the hint.)! WHY DOES IT END NOW?! Well, I think I know.. It's because the two main characters' chase for each other has ended a long time ago. How can plot develop afterwards? I mean, they love each other too much for any interruption from the outside. Maybe the Royal Line situation will break them up temporarily...and then Igarashi will interrupt and etc! but other than that, I can't see the main plot getting into another arc without dragging. I just hope that the final arc will AT LEAST hint to us that those two finally did it with each other. Maybe with a child?! There was TOO MUCH SEXUAL TENSION THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE SERIES to let that go away!!

This was the First Shoujo anime i ever watched, basically this was my foray into the shoujo world so i have a soft spot for this manga in my heart
i really love both Usui and Misaki and i find their Conversation really cute
it has now entered it's final arc and soon it will be farewell for one of my beloved series
Don't be discourage to read this!
This is an amazing series, don't be discourage by the other reviewers stating that only the beginning of this series is good, in my opinion this is very untrue! Sure the now Misaki is different from the beginning of the story and that is to be expected because that's her character development. She goes from strong and as another reviewer said, kickass to a more willing and kind protagonist. No one stays the same forever and since Misaki does evolve through the series, there is character development in this story! And about Misaka's past, I am pretty sure it will be unveiled but as of right now it's not important for her to have her past revealed to the audience to advance the plot since the story is about their relationship and not her past, it doesn't really help the story as of now other than make Misaki a more dynamic character. And like people say, love can really change a person and the fact that she blushes a lot means she really love the Usui and this also add a sense of realism to the story. So read up on this manga; you won't be disappointed!

Giving it a 10 just because I loved it so much
Or well, I loved it so much way back when I used to keep up with it monthly.
Although I would slightly disagree with the poster below me. No, you don't and shouldn't change your person when you're in love, but if it's a good sort of love, it'll bring out parts of you you didn't know existed, broaden your worldview, and sharpen your mind. Love -ought- to change you a little. Also hopefully, if you're in a long-term relationship, you grow up and mellow out. I'd hate to still be the same person I was in secondary school.
That said, though, I do agree with the whole depowermenting independant-heroines-can-no-longer-live-without-a-man shoujo trope. Bleh. Not only is it gross, but it's not even any fun to read about.
As for being strong or being soft, being strong isn't the same as being abrasive. Misaki is abrasive in the beginning of the manga, and I'm pretty sure she's supposed to be transitioning to strong. I haven't read it in awhile and can't speak for how well that's been working out. I do remember getting rather annoyed at all the blushing scenes. I swear there was a solid year when you couldn't go a chapter without several blushing scenes. It got old.
