From Tokyopop:

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 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.

well i actually liked this manga even being a shoujo (i'm a guy...and not gay btw)
i do read shoujo from time to time cause
all decent manga are on hiatus or something like that...
but i dont fell like this is an really shoujo-ish manga...
its such an cute light read =]

i really enjoied to read this...i dont has a lot of confidence to talk 'bout shoujo manga...
but if u want a light read that its a little bit of cliche...even if is some sort of cheap 'romeo & julieta'
i do recommend this ...

cause i could and liked to read even through im a guy which usually preffer shounen/seinen...
i think this means something

and about the negative coments about this manga...
if u ask me...the heroine is the usual shounen heroine...the epic "Tsundere"
its unusual to have tsundere on shoujo?...i think that's the cause that ppl dont like her
but reading shounen for so long... made me think i'm immune to it.

Positive: This manga is a really gorgeous shoujo manga. I love the main character's personality...that was what drew me in. It's funny, cute, romantic, and has beautiful art. The suspnese is really getting in for the recent chapter (50). =D And the main leads make a really good couple.

Negative: It's obvious
Spoiler (highlight to view)
they're going to end up together. I dunno if that was a spoiler or not since the manga's not complete.
And even though Usui's heartbreakingly gorgeous, it bothers me how he is perfect. I almost really do think he's an alien! XD

seriously, i don't know how to say how i REALLY enjoyed this manga. i can't believe i just read it though i keep seeing it on most 'lately popular manga'. wow! so a lot of people enjoyed it like i do, but i think i'm worse. i have my prelims ahead and i just can't stop reading until i'm deprived like you have to chain my whole body away from the pc. i seriously need some help out there. i usually comment on the plot, characters, art, impact and feel. but i just don't feel like it. out of words. simply, a manga that make me go crazy for it. anyway, if you're into anti-procrastination-and-hello-temptation then don't read or you're dragged to an impossible-to-break magnet imo. i enjoyed it!!!!!!!! super. i'm just lazy to comment more. i'll just give my *thumbs up*

i won't mind if you don't mind... i happen to be a president and that's just something i've become-you know barbaric tyrant to guys, defender of girls, divine feminist, and a man-hater to say. speak of not-having-a-big-brother complex, we're five girls and still it's really not enough to say that girls with similar situation as mine would end up like misaki. to experience something the protagonist is... is something that has given me the taste of reality the manga emanates. it's really different to experience it at hand and that's what has kept me reading.misaki is just the kind of person who endures. how long will she be protecting girls? me? i don't want to hold a responsibility any longer. resigned and succumb to being a mediocre. that's just the coward kaichou our school HAD.
is this really what i call out of words? tch! what an idiot! like hell i care..!

i should say.. dense people are simply not malicious. allowing malice to break down your wall is same as allowing yourself to fall in love... so misaki is just thinking of work to nullify the harassments that creates malice. a great strategy to avoid love?

I love it, once I started reading I couldn't stop. The pacing of the story is great, the flow is natural and doesn't drag or feel rushed.. every chapter something new happens and you don't feel like the chapter was a "filler". Also the female lead personality is awesome, one of the best in my opinion. She is strong and dependable, with a strong sense of right and wrong but also is not afraid to apologize when mistaken and to accept help when she needs it. Another good point is that the romance is slowly being built and not instant first sight love like most shoujo manga...

Story Development

At first, It think the story development wasn't so good because of Misaki's denseness. But after chapter 15 to now, the story becomes more interesting and the author adds some more thriller in the manga like Usui's mysterious past and their romance development. i also want to say that the plot is very good and it's very rare to see the story veering.
Some people say that the story is a cliche one but I think it's more than a cliche story, not in a particular shoujo way. (Well, we'll wait to see more chapters furthermore).

Cute!! I love the girl, she's tough but when she needs help, she doesn't deny it and is grateful for it. The guy is really cool too! Funny as hell. XD

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.

Hihihi At first when i saw it was already completed I was like " I dont wanna read it because i dont want it to end" But as i finished it kinda disappointed because, it is such an amazing manga and its finished. But then again Im kinda happy for them and overall its so hilarious and very romantic, even if they don't do lovey dovey stuffs. Hahaha

I really love MISAKI and TAKUMI both, they're very strong willed and independent. Im actually rooting Igarashi Tora for Ayuzawa because he's so HOOOT!! <3. I don't know but I cant believe that its actually over and Its one of the best manga I have read. I can't get enought of reading it again and again. smile))) Highly Recommended

This is definitely my top favorites of all time! I watched the anime before reading the manga and completely fell in love with it! It's just so refreshing to see the main female lead to be such a strong, determined, smart and caring WOMAN. Misaki is probably my favorite female character of all time because she doesn't rely on the guy for anythning even though he's practically perfect and can do absolutely anything not to mention is a complete genius. Even though he's a total prince, she's the type of character to do things herself, with her own power, her own strength and I really admire that about her.
The reason why this manga is so special is because the relationship between Misaki and Usui goes beyond physical appearance and kindheartedness that seems to be the "typical" in shoujo manga's. They have this strong relationship where they rely on their own strength instead of each others but always support and look out for one another.
I also love how Usui kind of breezes through and Misaki works her ass off. It's such a contrast which makes the story very interesting! I love every single character introduced and every situation they've encountered and overcame.
Loved this manga, love the main characters and side characters, loved the ending!

Highly Recommended.
