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?

I tried re-reading this one playing "Amazing Grace" by Leann Rimes, I can reflect the shell shocked admiration if I sorta picture Kawaii Maria singing in the same way bigrazz ...but this is one manga that I look forward to, hope it doesnt disappoint me, and seeing that there are 3 pages of the comments for a shoujo manga which has just 6 chapters released, I can see many are following suit biggrin ..I have liked Kawaii Maria's personality from the moment she started talkin though I dont always understand the meaning of what she says...nice to c ballsy gal,lol...

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.

A Great Manga.

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!

Great Start

To start off with this series is really good. The characters all have this air of suspense that makes them interesting and unique, especially Maria.
However as the manga progresses things become more and more dramatic and as things are revealed I feel as if it starts to go a little cliche.
The story behind Maria's birth is great and I loved the way that it linked up to her hatred of physical contact but I feel as though that hatred of physical contact shouldn't have disappeared as fast.
I also feel as though the way in which Maria simply forgave the man who raped her mother -regardless of love or other feelings- was too unrealistic.
I enjoy the mangas that i read to be a little more realistic then what i've been reading now. When reading through the parts involving things like the suicide and self hatred i find that to be even more unrealistic. It would have had more impact had the artist made it more realistic because after an experience like that, people shouting at you wouldn't help and the way it was handled was honestly not up to par.
Also, in the beginning i felt that Meguro was the type of guy who was laid back but as the story progressed he became more cliche and he lost the restraint that he should have had towards Maria and the way Maria began to act towards him was way too fast for my liking.
Overall this starts off as a great read but as you continue things become less interesting and unrealistic making it slightly irritating to read. It also loses a lot of the suspense that the characters were great for and the personalities of them, for kanda yuusuke and Erosu this is especially true. Finally I feel as though Maria's unique personality diminishes a little too much during the character development and she starts to look like a normal everyday girl.
This was a great manga and although it has its down i believe it's still worth the read for those who are looking for some romance and drama.

Misunderstanding Archetype   
Rating: 5.0 / 10.0

As a lot of commentators have said, this manga is pretty good up until the Anna Arc.

I fully got to enjoy Maria and her gang of misfits (which turns out to be pretty much everyone~). The only character that was furiously unrealistic was the teacher (who would have long been fired). But even with that, the sappiness was somewhat, really heartfelt. I don't usually (stand) like shoujo manga, but this Maria up until the arc, got me to...really like her.

What happens afterwards, well as many say, it deteriorates into mediocre. Its not bad per-se, in fact to an avid shoujo fan, maybe it is up-par. I donnu? But to me, it fell into the many plot devices, cliches and terribly executed misunderstandings (I still don't get why some supposed childhood trauma means you should avoid the persons feelings and your own).

The characters further on do a few changes, and although some might be happy, I found they became more superficial rather then the original deep. Even further along, it grows to a point where you might expect Maria to suddenly cry from getting a pat from Meguro. The whole "we can't communicate" becomes a strain on the readers mind. I still braved through till chapter 74. I'm not sure if I'll brave through further, but by now (at last) the two have finally gotten their feelings across, and finally got to the point of accepting her childhood trauma with her mother and the priest.

So my thoughts on this? I'd recommend most people to read up until her Anna friend comes along, and if you are still keen, maybe until Meguro rejects Maria on christmas. But reading further, that is only for someone who is much more of an avid romantic woes-be-me attitude lover.

I'm not going to complement on the plot. And some, if you wish (or believe otherwise) can disregard this review, as to be honest, after the whole big misunderstanding with Maria's trauma, I skipped about 2/3 of the chapters. Ha ha ....

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.

Beautiful Story

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!
