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.

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!

it was okay until.........
I loved it but at some point it turned out to be so annoying. Misaki is supposed to be strong and smart but now she only blushes and stutters. I hate the way the mangaka tries to show usui's perverted side, it seems so forced.
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.

i read this series a long time ago and enjoyed the antics for a little while until it started to get really redundant and the shoujoness became really apparent and annoying. also both misaki and usui started to annoy me heavily, so dropped.
to the person who's like "OMG GIRLS CHANGE WHEN THEY'RE IN LOVE". uh, no, you don't or shouldn't. if you change your person to be with someone you love, then you will no longer recognize yourself. strong girls getting mushy is such an overused and incorrect shoujo trope, it makes me gag everytime i see it, especially since it's emphasizing such depowerment and treats it like something normal. makes me sick.
@RaeBabeeyx3: actually i have 8D you don't change who you are, whatever makes you YOU to be with someone you love. then you just end up with a flimsy identity dependent on this person who may or may not stay a part of your life. how many girls (and guys) fall apart after having dedicated and invested way too much of themselves in a person who might not be for keeps? never lose sight of who you are in a relationship, kiddos~

I was a huge fan of this series years ago but I don't know why this won't make me feel so excited when a new chapter comes out, like it did before.
Back then the waiting the new chapter almost made me go crazy, but now its more like 'oh, a new chapter came out, I will read it later.'
I guess because I am older now so I prefer differend things but I won't drop this one, yet.
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.
WHY SO BITTER!!?
PeoPLE personally this manga is about love!!!!!!!!!! you all say that you like the mizaki who is strong but hate her when she's with usui cause she gets soft??
you know ??
that's because she's in LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! don't you ever feel that
normally you build up strong and high walls but there is this person who will climb it just to get close to you. then this different side of you will come out!!!! haven't you guys experienced that?? if not then get a bf then you'll understand mizaki!!!! BUT THIS MANGA IS GOOD really good!!!!!
Its not fun to read anymore ;__;
I really really really loved this series and thinking back on misaki and usui's relationship still gives me tingles but idk when they got together the magic died. That's why its always hard to pull out a great evolving relationships that keeps getting more serious in a manga, i've seen this also happen with SA. I'm so sad that i don't read this anymore, but i can't bring myself to. Maybe when its completed i'll go back to this and see what happened to the relationship i use to love ;__;
I adore this series. I don't maybe it is because I can identify with Misa or maybe it is because I love freaking LOVE tsundere. Is this manga for everyone-- no probably not, but it is a great Tsundere/Shoujo title. It has a great romance between the characters that is slow to develop, but amazing to read. The characters are well written with complicated backgrounds and feelings, and that makes the story even better. I will admit some chapters are less interesting than others, but for the most part this manga has a great story line, interesting arcs, and some of my favorite characters of all time. It is one of the few manga that I will drop everything for and read as soon as it is released. (It is also one of the few that I re-read every chapter to make sure I get everything I can from it. ) It is nice to see a Tsundere manga that has a strong character who is not violent towards the main guy character and a guy character with a lot strength and personality to handle the tsundere character.
Lost the love...
I would've rated this a ten when I started reading it because it was one of those amazing mangas that got me really hooked...I'd even read until 3am even though I had class at 9 in the morning or had papers to do when I first started reading a couple of years back.
Looking back, it feels nostalgic and all, it was a really good shoujo that kind of gave off the same feel as SA...then I got bored. I dunno whats wrong with me but remembering how excited I was whenever I clicked to the next page and was like 'OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!!' and fangirl-ing like crazy, I'm seriously asking myself what the heck happened?
It was great at the start and had me on a shoujo high and I couldn't wait to read the latest chapter but then it somehow became a chore to read from chapter forty-something onward. I love Misaki and Usui and all and I'll always remember loving their hilarious romantic development. Usui's possessiveness and Misaki, the strong-willed tsundere...loved it.
And then that was it. I couldn't get myself to love the plot anymore. Cliches kept popping up. Don't get me wrong, I'm okay with cliches since it depends on how the author can use it to his/her advantage and how it is applied, how the characters are worked out. And it's pretty hard to avoid writing a cliche.
Usui is perfect. He's one of the many 'Edward Cullen's in the manga world minus the fangs and general emo-ness. I loved it at first but then it got boring. His only so called "flaw" is his possessiveness, making him even hotter/perfect-er (is that even possible?). Who wouldn't want the perfect dude monopolizing them anyway? His past is sad and has family complications and all that drama...which only adds to his allure I guess while not exactly affecting his perfectness.
One thing that got me reading this manga was 1) art and 2) Misaki's kickass self. I loved that she's so tough and all coz me no like those wimpy ass crybabies you may find in your average shoujo but I have to admit her tsundere-ness started to tick me off after some time. I just keep wondering what if Misaki suddenly became equally as agressive as Usui and then Usui would be the one all flustered, not knowing what to do. That would have been hilarious to see and I would've loved Usui more.
Sigh, even after they got through the whole 'Usui, I like you too' thing with Misaki, that was it. No more development. No more character growth (if there even was other than Misaki accepting her feelings for Usui). Only the usual plot devices trying to come in between their love. Plot devices from Usui's past, if I may add. Was his past just that? Something used for the plot to get going?
Sorry, long review. But for those just starting, this is a GREAT shoujo for you. Don't mind the nitpicking. It has good art and basically good characters and the plot fairs well.
Edit: I plan to reread this as others have recommended. I'm sure I'm gonna love it all over again and I hope it will stay that way and I'll be able to give this a ten.
