From Viz: Kaya Satozuka is a brilliant secretary who excels at her job, which is why she doesn’t bat an eye when she’s assigned to be personal secretary to Kyohei Touma, the very difficult managing director of Touma Foods. It doesn’t faze her when her new boss seems determined to make her fail, and she even manages to take it in stride when she discovers the secret behind his prickly behavior…he’s a vampire! But while Kaya easily adapts to late nights and keeping a schedule of his “dinner dates,” will her ultra-competence help when Kyohei’s smoldering gaze starts turning her way?!

kaya... talks a lottttt. AND SHE LIKES REPEATING THINGS SO MUCH. That's my pet peeve, but the good thing is, she isn't a hated character like typical shoujos. As for the dude (can't remember his name), he's SO HOT.... but he's so... annoyinggggg.
At first, I was hesitant about reading this manga because let's face it... Vampires in shoujos are THE cliches. As I read more and more, I found the art and the plot every entertaining. As of now it is a ten but I forsee a bad ending falling into mediocrity. Either way, I'd recommend this manga for the fanatics and even mild shoujo readers. Cheers!
I've always liked vampire stories -- and this one is pretty cute/funny.... The main character is good too -- not one of those whiny ones who run around everywhere.
I really love this. The characters are particular, and the thing i really love is that the story is gradually moving. It gets better and it is really progressing. It's a smut but the it's not the main thing, and the plot is enchanting!
I agree with my fellow comentees....
What I love about Midnight Secretary is the fact that the lead is not a stupid, naive senseless girl who falls in love at first sight. I do agree that she starts to loser her edge halfway through the series, but that is because she begins to fall in love slowly. It is a part of her character development, not a flaw in the plot or the beginning of a shoujo cliche by any means. I love this series because of it's strong, consistant characters. The only negative I have to say about Midnight Secretary is that it is basically smut with a good plot.... so if you have any objection to smut, it might not be your thing.
This is what i think...
I dun't like Kyohei...and i always think what Kaya like in Kyohei?? coz Kyohei hott n sexy it does't make a sense....many hot guys in Kaya life also hot..kind too! and Kyohei..I really don't like what he thinks!!! he mean guy! not a kind guy..T__T
this is a pretty good series--the heroine's not the usual weak, naive ditz who crashes into things. i luv it when the boss sulks. xD it's too cute. i recommend this manga cuz it's a fun read.
if you like the male lead, you'll probabily like this. Otherwise...
Kaya (the secretary) is a likable and strong character in the beginning, quite evening out the very... bossy boss and stating herself as a suitable companion, while the interaction between them is relatively enjoyable and interesting to witness. Then the more she falls in love, the more she seem to get submissive, the imposing behaviour of her male counterpart hence turning out to be just... a tad too much to bear. In hindsight I think this second phase -that thankfully seem to be over in the very latest chapters (#23 and #24 currently) - was mainly due to the mangaka stalling the development (the relationship seemed to almost go one step ahead and two steps backwards some times) while trying to establish the plot and pacing: Kyohei (the vampire) is a tough nuck to crack, but the whole 'vampire pride' element could have been solved much earlier (first cracks were about chapter #13, but only ten chapters later we see some real thought processing of the matter on his side). Well, better later than never, I guess XD. Do I recommend this? yes, to the smut audience, with caution to the general audience if you're not bothered by borderline Harlequin-romance chauvinism - or if you're amused by it instead XD -. Hoping it won't go downhill... Otherwise, I'd rather suggest Barairo my Honey by the same mangaka, it's more balanced and has no smut. Or, if you want (mostly smart, funny) smut and good crack XD, try Yoshihara Yuki

getting quite boring...
Sounded promising at the begining of the series, though as the story progessess, it lost its uniqueness. Story started out with a strong main character, but now she's just any other typical shoujo heroin. It's getting quite repetitive.
Read up til the end of v03, and will not finish it since it seems like it would be a waste of my time.
I agree with what you're saying about Kaya. She's not ditzy. I hate shoujo with ditzy main characters. Oh, Kyouhei... I would so have his manga babies.
