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.

The art is more than wonderful

I have to say that the initial idea for Akuma de Sorou is great but it is not sustained throughout the series. I had a bad impression of the overall plot and ending from the TW drama SO...

the main reason why I read this manga was for the art.

Takanashi Mitsuba does not do cutesy-cutesy big eyed shoujo style art, thus a large number of shoujo manga readers are unable to appreciate her drawings. Her art is more sophisticated. It is geared towards a more realistic style, her proportions are more accurate and her eye for detail is most evident throughout the series.

The overall image for Takeru is based on a real life person (hide) and I was able to recognise this almost just for that, I give Takanashi's art skills extra credit. (:

At first, it wasn't all that interesting and I really didn't like Takeru all that much. After a couple chapters, Takeru started to look better and he was more appealing. Kayano has quite an annoying personality though,

At first, the story looked really promising and exciting. Then it gradually started getting more and more... boring. The main character became really annoying too - I hated how she kept crying all the time.
And the art is not my cup of tea either. I tried to get used to it, thinking that the story would make up for it. That however obviously didn't happen. The art only gets a bit better towards the end. And speaking of the end, it felt really rushed and even though it was a happy end it was unsatisfying for me. It felt like the mangaka was in a depression and decided to take it out on the characters. But one day she woke up in an unexpectedly good mood and decided that they should just end up together no matter what.
All in all, this really turned out disappointing for me.

I'm still at around volume 7 of the whole manga and what's really bugging me is that 80% of the time Kayano just keeps crying. Irritating at times but I do love their "moments". Hope it gets better..

This series had a slow, ugly start- a bit like an ugly duckling. The art really looked weird in the first few chapters, but it got better- WAY better. The storyline was simple,effective and heartwarming. One of the best shojou mangas, this is definitely recommended.

A beautiful, sortive indie tale.
The modern uptake, and the general image were enjoyable.
I loves Haru and Kayano's relationship. So kawaii!
Only Takanashi-sama could make a story fit with it's words so well.

you can really feel takeru's and kayano's love for each other. their relations to each other get a bit confusing later, but that just made me disregard their whole step-siblings thing.
the art turns out beautiful by the end, so that's a plus. i just have to comment on their fashion sense, though. it's a lil weird. :0 but i wouldn't mind if ppl in america actually made the jewelry that takeru wore.
a happily ever after story, if ur a phobe.

Deep plot, where you can see the effort every character makes to grow up and stand the situation. They love each other just the way they are, but since the world is a defying battle, they give their best to solve all the problems around and end up together.
I like the end! It's my favorite part! I approve Takeru's decision and I think that the mangaka gave her best here to make the plot more realistic. The final chapter is soooo cute! We can see at the end how much they grew up and improved, and kind of gives me that feeling of "Oh! I'm so proud of seeing these children growing so strong!" lolololol

Ok, so when i first started to read this series i was dissapointed by the artwork but if you bare with the first volume the artwork improves and the plot really develops. I really liked the characters in this series, and i loved the ending although its a little cliché i'm a sucker for a happy ending. This series is definitly one worth rereading which says something because i very rarely reread manga.
