Description
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?

SIMPLY LOVED IT

I can't get enough of how brilliant this manga is! For instance the art!!!-most times I have to look at it twice, just to lap up the nicely done character poses! And the humour is fantastic too. I love the plot line and I love how the mangaka discusses the complexity of each individuals' personality. And I love the unique characters in the story too!

overall, loved it.

*waits anxiously for new volumes* XD

A-hole teachers like the one in this story definitely exist. Teachers are human and humans can be evil. Count yourselves lucky if you never met them. Also, any classroom can devolve into a group of bullies and morons especially if there is an open target like a single black kid in a classroom full of whites. (In my case, a single hotheaded Chinese kid in a classroom full of blacks.) As Tommy Lee Jones' character said in "Men in Black":

Quote
A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it.


"Kawai Maria" is a smart girl with a dumb mouth. She sees all the flaws people exhibit and she spouts out her observations with little to no restraint. The fact that it is easy to see those flaws in ourselves and those around us makes this a story worth reading. It is also a story that pisses you off every now and then. I'm not the only one here whose blood boils at the sight of the class's teacher. Read this and your's probably will too.

One of the coolest heroines ever!

Having read the first 9 chapters of this manga, I can say that Kawai Maria is the coolest heroine that I have ever seen. She is not a damsel in distress. She merely has the ability/misfortune to perceive things as they are, not as people present them to be. While it seems that Maria is harsh on the faults of others, she saves her harshest criticism for herself. I love her Goth-Loli style. I like how the narration switches between the three main characters. The villains are top-notch, inspiring an entertaining amount of hate. If you like a shoujo manga that is more complex and developed than the norm, read Akuma to Love Song.

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!

I read up to chapter 81 and then read chapter 91 summary as I felt this manga was going downhill.

My rating is a 5. First quarter was interesting but the rest was very melodramatic. There is a lot of progressing and then regressing again and again in characters' developments.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Like, ugh, an example is Shin. Okay, I get he have insecurities but it's being replayed after he thought he overcame it. I think it was poorly executed. The story line became tiresome.

I read another user's review about how it was decent until Anna's plot. Very true. After this, everything is shallow. I do, however, like Shintaro as his character is consistent.

What I hate: chapter 91 have Yuusuke's monologue as the conclusion. At this point, I just pity him. He has always showed strength toward Maria, being there every time she needed help, and he is mentally strong to put back his shortcomings in order to support her, unlike Shin (multiple times)... yet the last chapter portrayed him in such a pitiful way. He's rejected but still idolizes her traits. =_=

First off, the art is fantastic. I've been reading the VIZ translations from my library and seeing the printed art, especially the cover art for the tankouban and chapters, it's simply beautiful.
After reading the comments here, I decided to just read it til the Anna arc so I asked Suxxinn who told me that it started in volume 5 and was alright at first and got progressively worse.
After reading the first 4 volumes, I left the series very satisfied.
The main characters are pretty fantastic. Maria sees through everyone's bullshit but has a terrible social life because she reacts to people's true thoughts and intentions rather than their facade and false words. The two male characters try to teach her otherwise.
Shin reacts to people's bullshit by simply interacting with others to the bare minimum but being tolerant of it enough that he isn't hated. Thus he's an outcast, though nowhere near as much as Maria.
Yuusuke kind of embraces people's bullshit. While at first he seemed like an incredibly annoying character, it's all an act to cover up how much he despises his true nature and, from his point of view, the neccessity of putting on a mask at all times.
Really the whole series seemed to be about how our physical appearance is almost totally unrelated to who we really are. I really liked that.
This can be best seen with Yuusuke early on, and then Tomoyo.

Then a couple of months later I saw volume 5 in the library and thought to myself 'Why did I stop reading this again?'. So I grabbed volumes 5 & 6.
More ont hat later, gtg to work bigrazz
