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.

This will always be my Number One. <3

The main male character Usui Takumi is the love of my life. No matter how unrealistically perfect he is, I won't give up the hopes of one day snatching someone of his level. yes. I will snatch the person!
Anyways, I fell in love with the dynamic between usui and misa from chapter 1. They are both badass, determined, and independent. They have different lives, goals, and dreams. But they come together and work through their various obstacles together without abandoning their own personal dreams and aspirations. And this is what I believe to be a truly healthy relationship between lovers. I have so much respect for these two. They are the perfect tag-team, and complement each other by standing back to back, covering for one another's faults.
Unlike what the unfavorable comments say, the reason I liked this story was BECAUSE there WAS character development. Misa starts out as a stubborn and judgmental demon who hates ALL men, and is eventually tempered by Usui's natural calmness. Usui, on the other hand, becomes more passionate than before due to Misa's fiery nature, and finally has something worth fighting for. (being the sad genius that he was, life was pretty boring until Misa came along) Both of them reach a happy medium by the end, and find solace in one another. They changed themselves into better people!
Humor was also pretty nicely snugged into the series. I laughed so many times that I've lost count. And gosh, some moments of the series had ME blushing along with the characters. Ha ha.
The art is also gorgeously drawn, and Usui becomes hotter with every new release. (is that even possible?) The ONLY downside of this manga was the side characters. The side characters did not have a chance to develop as much as the main couple did. Still, a few of them changed a lot and the author never forgot about them! I just wish the manga ended earlier, because the last few chapters actually dragged the series down.

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
Double as long as it should have been.
In my opinion this manga was really really a favorite till midway when
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
they finally got together
after that the whole plot was filler filled, boring, overly sweet and overly complicated and i really disliked the ending. Loving this series so much in the beginning does leave you even more disappointed, so maybe my rating is a bit harsh. Either way, I would recommend to read this manga only till the mentioned part and drop it after that.
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.
But I'm giving it a 10 for nostalgia's sake.

this is a good shoujo
So far, many of the comments have been something along the lines of how this manga is great or how people have lost interest in this manga or how this manga sucks.
Honestly, how many manga's do you know that can cater to everyone's preferences? This manga is good for people who enjoy reading about 'pure' or 'cutesy' love, befitting many other shoujo mangas.
Currently, this manga is no longer about the comedic rituals that most manga couples go through in order to achieve their love, but rather has changed route towards the more dramatic obstacles, both physical and emotion, that will further affirm their commitment towards each other. It's in a sense lost that cuteness that drew in much of it's audience, however in exchange it's began to develop more story and character depth. That may be the reason people have begun to lose interest, however in and of itself it's a particular good shoujo manga that's been able to draw in readers from more than just a cute romance.
This manga is far from perfect; this manga has been predictable from the start. Probably the most unpredictable aspect was usui changing schools. However, even with it's imperfection in it's storyline, it's reached a point where I've developed and retained a liking to it.
I honestly didn't expect the comedy to disappear as much as it did, but I'm glad it did. It's no longer a shallow manga that relies solely on it's shoujo characteristics, and for someone like me who get's bored with repetition, I enjoy it.
Like I said before, this manga is far from perfect, which is why I rated this an 8/10, bordering on a 7/10. However, this scale is only based on it's pre-school switch arc. I can't accurately assess a manga's worth whilst it's still in production.
