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?

Akuma To Love is Love   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

This is honestly one of the best shojo manga's I've read. I can't predict half the things Maria will say and while the plotline of the two guys there ready to save her is a little bit cliche I love the fact that their characters aren't. Yes Meguro is a bit of a bad boy and Yuusuke is the kind one but their personalities go deeper than that. Especially that of Yuusuke's. Sorry if I sound like a fan girl I've just really fallen for his character. I can't really understand half his actions.

Though Maria's just the same. She's strong and I can't believe that the teacher is such an idiot. But obviously that is meant to inspire fury into the minds of the readers. This is a very well written if not completely original manga. Still a good manga doesn't have to be original. It just has to be 'lovely!'

And that's why I rate this a 10/10 because I couldn't stop reading. Yes Maria is a little hard to relate to but then again there are a lot of humans out there like her. I would however like for her to be a little more human sometimes.

Really, it's not often people see smart independant girls with attitude as the lead in shoujo manga. Maria's prone to speaking out rudely with whatever's on her mind since she seems to be able to read people very easily. Plus, it's cool that she's the 'subtle and intelligent, yet cold' type of person.

People also often misunderstand her actions and see her as the villain since she doesn't really know how to behave normally.This causes alot of trouble and comedic scenes between her and and the other characters.

What's better is that there's a possible triangle romance between her and 2 other hot guys, each with completely opposite personalities. All said, this is one of my most favourite shoujo manga (because of all, once I got into shounen-ai /yaoi, it became harder to enjoy shoujo like before bigrazz).

For starters, the lead girl is strong. And by strong I do not mean going around beating up people to prove her physical strength or something like that. Her personality is was got me to read further. Only 13 chapters, but I expect much from this series because in those 13 chapters, its convinced me that this is different.
For starters, the heroine with a persona which makes her stand out. She's not diplomatic nor does she beat around the bush. Maria tells everyone straight off the reality of the situation without worrying about her own image. She intrigues me more than anyone else...would love to see more!
Then there's Shin. Ah, he struck a chord with me and I really like him *insert fangirl squeal here*. Yuusuke on the other hand seems like a very one dimensional guy at first but later is shown to be much more deeper than his appearances.
The bully scenes (hate that Ayu girl with veangence!!) with the class were harsh and I was glad to see that Tomoko moved over from her shallow buddies to Maria biggrin.
Recommend this to all for this is an amazing series. Waiting for more!

I was originally really intrigued by this story, the characters were appealing and I was interested to see how the romance progressed. But it just seemed to me that the Mangaka was trying to make things too dramatic and thus ended up failing on the realism.
The kinds of emotions the characters were feeling and the problems they were experiencing were often utterly unbelievable, either that or they made no sense whatsoever. There was way too much angst, the bullying was completely unrealistic, the teacher's behaviour was ridiculous.
Everything just started to feel forced, forced so each chapter would have lots of action to keep the reader's attention.

The first few volumes are quite enjoyable and while the middle volumes do stray from what seemed to be the series' premise (and ratchet up the melodrama) they werent terrible, just something of a departure. But then
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
they decide to introduce the rapist of a 14 year old girl as a sympathetic character, who receives no punishment for his crime, who is forgiven by everyone and who goes on about how he loved his victim. The forgiveness angle would have been bad enough if he had to work for it, but the entire package and the way its presented just makes it feel not only vile but entirely, laughably actually, false and artifical. It shatters any suspension of disbelief and really ruined the series I think.

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.

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.

I fell in love with Maria right away. I feel like I am so much like her. Blunt and to the point. If you see someone's personality as faulty, you say so. I loved her! There were times where I wish she would be more blunt because so many people treat her like crap, but I can't hate her. She sees the hidden evil in people that most people wouldn't see. She tries to give people a chance, but when she does, she does it wholeheartedly even if it means Maria gets hurt.

This is not your average shoujo manga. I wish other heroines were like Maria! This one makes your blood boil and there are no cliches! Maria isn't the girl who wants to befriend a jerk because she's naive. No, she just deals!

Well, this is a totally different shoujo manga. The heroine is not the typical crybaby, quite the opposite in fact. Maria is an honest person, she always says what she's thinking and doesn't have tact whatsoever. Basically, she does not put the mask everyone else in society wears so as to live "comfortable", so whenever she tells people the reasons for their actions, they feel as if she actually sees through them and they get irritated.
As for the love triangle..well, not much to say. For now, that's not the main focus of the story and I hope it'll stay like that. The two boys have much more to their personalities than what we can see on the surface, so I expect a really good character development.
I truly recommend this manga to whoever wants a "different" shoujo.

I've only read the first couple of chapters scanlated by serenus-dreamers and what struck out at me the most were how polarized the minor characters were (such as the side students and teachers). it felt really unrealistic to me because no one is that one-sided. almost everyone is marvelling at what an awesome kawaii maria is but I don't like her simply because I found her hard to relate to and unrealistic sometimes.

it was boring and exagerrated. anyways i read about 13 chapters and then dropped it.

I'd recommend this to those who hate the typical shoujo heroines cause kawaii maria is a complete 180 of those. this manga has all the same cliche plot devices that make us love and hate shoujo.
