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.

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 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.

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.

this manga is one that i recommended to my friends but now im so dissapointed with the latest chapters. at first it's a good opening with tsundere misaki that has strong personality and has no fear among the boys and even she handles to be a council president and i love usui that could make misaki insulted and flirted her with his jokes and how awesome misaki to be cool man and make usui amazed to her. it's sooooo good , even though they have no an exact relationship at least the reader cpuld see how strong their relationship. i was so happy with this manga until usui and misaki started going out. few chapter after vol 7 is just BLEH. kiss here and there all chapters has their kiss moment and what i think is: IS THIS SMUT MANGAconfused I WONDER none and when i thought it's time for misaki to shine (im pretty looking forward for her past that makes her hate men so much) and thisbut then after im waiting so long.. i cant find any hint that will show that misaki's past will be told so i made a conclusion that this manga manga is ONLY oriented to usui, even though misaki is the main character. to be honest, because of that i started to hate this manga that like boasting only usui that's just too perfect that makes it so boring afterward. misaki as the main character is just too tsundere and in newest chapters i am completely annoyed with her who always blushing when she is with usui. i want old misaki come back. i dont want story about usui usui usui anymore. getting tired. im gonna drop this series.

I,too, remember when i was reading like 'OMG what's gonna happen next??!!!!' and it was irritating to wait for the next page to appear! When i arrived around chapter 50, i kinda got less time to read mangas, but now i have plenty of time and when i re read it, it became boring and cliched!
Misaki was a strong female character, but is no more! She blushes here and there IN EVERY CHAPTER! and it gets damn annoying!!! seriously, there's a limit of how much you can blush in a chapter -.-
Usui was cool and hot before but now, usui is like MR PERFECT! Geez, you see guys like that in almost all shoujo mangas! He too blushes too much!
-If i knew 'love' would make someone 'strong to weak', then i better not fall in love for a moment none
I remember when Usui left a mark on Misaki's back so that she could not wear a swimsuit. I was like 'Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaa~~~~~ *dies of fangasm*' but now it has no effect none
Also, why must they kiss in almost every chapter confused !! it makes it kinda annoying sad
Too much blushies, kisses, I Love You's etc
I dropped it....

All in all, just like almost all shoujos, it went up and up and suddenly fell down to restart.

I was actually excited when I see Misaki as a strong and smart female lead. She's cool and gives me sooo much hope with her character,her character didn't change even till the last chapter (65)..but I hate the fact that she became weak when it comes to Usui. Also,Usui was really perfect that it annoys me,I prefer Misaki to be with You-kun.
Geh,dropped it on chapter 35.
It has lots of great scenes,and good potentials. I just can't stand the characters. Their slow romance doesn't feel real. She fell for him because he's kind,caring,sweet,smart,always protects her,and another perfect personalities blah blah but that's it.. and I thought that this is gonna be good so I kept reading it. Usually I would go all "OMG! OMG! FOR REAL! KYAA!" when it comes to kiss scene but when they kissed I continued reading till the next chapter with a damn straight face.

Why is it that almost all mangas were like this. At first the girl was bad-ass then the guy came,teased her,helped her,blah blah blah and then she became soooo weak and depends on that guy a lot.
Geh. I'd say I prefer Penguin Brothers,though the ending wasn't really satisfying but I kind of understand why the mangaka did that.

I liked the idea and the art (I don't read a manga unless the art is good) however the fact that Usui is "Mr. Perfect" and that Misaki has always to rely on him for help is getting old. Also the charatcers need more development. It's not bad but not good either.

It started out and it was sooooo pretty. It seemed to have lots of potential and I just wanted more and more of it. But unfortunately, it went downhill really fast. It actually turned out to be just like every other shojo manga out there and began to have every cliche that shojo mangas usually have, but all in one, squished together back-to-back. Romance was way too fast. The guy just sticks to her and "OMG" we're in love.

I felt kind of bad dropping this, but it got way too cliche way too fast, which is odd because I usually love a larger degree of it... Anyways, I didn't like the combination of Usui and whatsherface. They didn't have balance, at all! Though I LOVE how strong Misaki is, she's still weak when it comes to boys and whatnot. She looks strong and independent, but Usui has her hooked. There was too much blushing and not enough development. She's also quite stupid and bad at communicating, though she's always called smart.

TL,DR: Good potential, good art, bad characters, bad plot.
