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.

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
Why does it have so many favourable reviews?
After endeavouring to read Kaichou wa Maid-sama! the third time I am pleased to say that it is now on my complete list. It starts off well enough. The first 40 chapters or so were quite humorous and I had a blast while reading them. The latter half though... I have some serious complaints about it.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Misaki and Usui get together. After this their relationship becomes sooo boring. It's usui teasing her every single time, then Misaki blushes and calls him a perverted alien before giving in. Overused plot much?
Usui first transfers to Miyabigaoka and then to Britain. That's all well and fine. But for what reason? He wants to confront the "Walker" family. I didn't see any confrontation of any sort in the manga.
Igarashi Tora then offers to help Misaki to get to Britain because he wants Usui to inherit the Walker family line. He teaches her high society stuff life dancing, manners etc. They don't put any of this to use in the end because he plans to help Usui escape by making Misaki jump on the castle's rooftop in a maid uniform!! Where's the sense in this? He wanted Usui to inherit not escape! Their talk and actions were completely contradictory.
And is it necessary to have every single male character fall in love with Misaki?The part about Igarashi tora falling for her was nonsense. There was no proper development towards it.
The manner in which they talked in the latter half irritated me to death. I can't explain it, but people who have read many shoujo stuff should know. It's probably the scanlator's fault here. I am not very sure though.
By the time it ended I was so fed up that even the last chapter failed to make me smile with nostalgia.
There's absolutely no character development as well. The characters remain the same from the beginning to the end. Usui is still the cool, haunted by the past guy. Misaki remains temperamental and gets flustered easily. Yukimura is still the guy who is mistaken for a girl and a crybaby. It gets boring after a while.
I could keep complaining about this manga all day long. But in spite of all my complaining I give this a 6/10. I won't say I enjoyed it, but I didn't hate it as well. It's okay if you are into shoujo, I guess. Like Asani said before me, this would have been much more enjoyable if it had only been half as long. Suffice to say that I won't be re reading this.

But I definitely wanted more heartpounding doki doki between you know who! It's a tale brilliantly told, if you've been following it since the inception, like me, you'll cry and laugh by the bucketloads. Especially with the way the last volume has been framed. I feel like the mangaka was given plenty of liberty to get the crazy Usui storyarc out of her system and she finally streamlined the entire story to a fitting end.
On another note, there's a recent thread I noticed on Mangafox "Is Usui a virgin".......O_o The responses are very interesting! That thread in itself is a highly recommended read hehe
quite fun and cute until it came crashing down lol
strted good..had alot of incoherencies.... but...the last few parts oooo dear lord...seriously.... and then even worse with the last chapter.... man such a horrible ending... happy ..and funny..but so uncreative..rushed and pointlessly detailed in the most unessary ways and absolutely shalllow and undescriptive in any good ways.. and it left big mark on all the niceness of the stuff b4....
regardless.... it was rather fun...aside from the last chapter ( o god..) and the england arc (pretty bad and incoherent all over with many wtf moments) would have been a 8-9 if it werent for these 2... 8 if it only had the england arc or similar problem.... 8.5 for having a final chapter (few chapters like tht) [despite being reeeeally bad its not a whole arc but these few counted as half of an entirely horrible arc]...both of them together bring them down under 7 in a negatively synergistic manner
still worth trying

really with many logical problems many romantic scenes. this series is worth read but not made re-read : you can picck few dozens of pages which make you happy and rest is dragged too much.
enjoyable chapters at times : no character development all the time : wastage of characters nosense everywhere still a HAPPY ENDING.
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.
