Hm...I don't think so
It doesn't "feel" the same. In S.A there was a main goal - to become #1, in KWMS there isn't a particular main goal. At first I thought that it was gonna be the same (they end up together at the end), but then they hooked up not too long after the first chapter :\

The main love interests are different as well. Kei was always teasing Hikari for being #2 and hardly showed any signs of how he felt for her and even when he did (when he was saving her etc.) he teased her afterwords to make her doubt his true feelings.

Usui is open about his feelings for Misaki. It was never hidden. He teases her by showing his affection for her (which annoyed her at first), and does nothing that sorta demeans her like Kei to Hikari.

Now, before someone else mentions the "onigiri similarity" again, I must say, IT'S A GODDAMN CLICHÉ! It is not unique to either S.A or KWMS. Many other manga with similar female characters have done it before -_-

There may be some similarities, but not too much.

I guess they do share some similarities, but I prefer KWMS much more. I tried reading Special A, and though you can already spot the similarities in the first few chapters, I just couldn't get myself to like it much. The heroine is annoying ..determined, but annoying, and the guy is too cold.

I also was going to say that the "feel" or "rhythm" of both are not similar. Even if the characters and the plot have some (in my opinion) small similarities, they have way more differences. I think there's no way that the endings can be the same so that's way I continue reading KWMS.

Haha, it does seem similar. Especially with the lead couple. laugh

But they have their own unique points, too. biggrin

Well, I read Kaichou wa Maid-sama first! And I think they ARE similar, but which Shoujo Manga isn't similar to another?! xDDD
I think it's just a coincidence that they are that similar and even if it isn't a coincidence. I don't really care! I have lots of FUN when I read those two Mangas so for me it's ok! ^^

they may have some similarities in the 2 leading roles but other then that there are none.
special A isn't a manga good enough like Kaichou wa maid-sama.
