High school is difficult for most kids. But for Kayano, a shy girl whose single mother seems to work all the time, it's even worse than usual. She's so afraid of drawing attention to herself that she can't tell the handsome Kamijo how much she loves him until one day she finally gets up the courage to write him a letter confessing her feelings...

When she goes to give him the letter all her plans go awry. She's given the letter to the wrong person! Accidentally, she's given her love letter to Takeru Edogawa who just so happens to be the school principal's son, head of the delinquents and the notorious "Prince of Attraction"! To Kayano, he seems like Satan himself. Not only is he devilishly handsome, but he seems to take the utmost pleasure in making her suffer. Things only get more interesting when Kayano's mother comes home one day and announces she's getting married again --- To principal Edogawa! What will Kayano do when she has to live with this devil 24/7? How will she cope with her literal "Hell on Earth"?

This series has been adapted to Chinese live action drama under the name "Devil Beside you", starring Mike He, Rainie Yang and Kingone Wang.

Beautiful drawing style, decent story

I enjoyed reading this manga series once, but I doubt I would reread it...too long and there weren't really any parts that I see myself craving to read again. The art was simply gorgeous, but it did kind of bug me at first how the mangaka fashioned Takeru after a real-life person. Other mangakas probably do the same thing, I just don't recognize who their model/inspiration is.

The story was a little drawn out, but it was a sweet read nonetheless. My biggest complaint was that Kayano cried way too much. It was absolutely ridiculous how much she cried. As a girl, I would feel pathetic if I cried as much as she did (and yes, I am a girl).

I think the mangaka did a good job on the surrounding characters. I liked how many of the secondary characters appeared throughout the story and didn't just disappear after one or two chapters.

This manga is really great! The story is something you can get involved with, like you can feel the drama of the characters. I dont think it was too long, cause Takanashi did such a great job in not getting the story boring!
I love both Kayano and Takeru are exelent characters, not plain at all, and they grow so much as the manga goes by!
The art is great and the end is real, cause sometimes we really need to get mature for somethings to happen!

I highly recommend! ;D

At first i thought it could be a very good manga but the plot is way too simple and too predictable. 11 volumes to tell a story like this are a little too much. Anyway the main character should be an "akuma" but in reality he' s so good and caring (i don't like that he turns out to be the good guy). The thing that gets you is the art. He is very beautiful and hide-ish. This manga disappointed me, maybe if it was shorter ...

You've gotta try something different. Kazillion times better than Marmalade boy. Much more realistic. So much more romantic. I loved the art, the story, the conflicts, the romance and everything and anything else. smile A good read.

This manga has its appeal; it draws the reader in; art is good; plot is good etc. I do like this manga. HOWEVER this manga is of the minority of mangas out there that make me absolutely DEPRESSED (another being 'parfait tic'wink. The characters were great, I can't argue, but I thought of Takeru as a self-righteous bastard, although his ability to be 'wise beyond his years' appealed to me. Bah! This is the worst criticism I've given to a manga, I would never choose to re-read this manga. I didn't feel the love for Kayano in Takeru, but Kayano seemed head over heels for him, which really pissed me off (which is why I like Kaichou wa maid-sama). This manga made me convinced that I never wanted to fall in love with anyone.

Slightly more mature version of Marmalade Boy

Beautiful artwork. However I swear, Takeru must spend more time than most women spend to get ready in the morning. I like how much more depth of characterization there was than Marmalade Boy. The characters are more complex and less silly. I love the ending. The story ending from the perspective of another character was very cute. The last picture made me smile.

this is a good manga and the art is nice but seriously, with this plot?! yah 11 volumes is wayy too long. it's dragged out too much.

but if you actually have all that time then read it b/c it is fun and cute.

I really liked this story quite a bit. However, eventually Kayano got on my nerves for crying over every single little thing.
