From Jshoujo Scans:

Shinonome Mei remembers being rescued by a butler when she was a young girl. But did that really happen? When Mei's parents die in car accident, this butler, Rihito, reappears, wanting to take her to her grandfather.
Mei's grandfather is very wealthy and Mei turns out to be the heiress to his fortune and is forced to transfer to St. Lucia Academy, so that she can become a proper lady.
When Mei's childhood friend Kento hears about this, he decides to enroll in a butler school so that he can stay close to her.
Mei-chan falls in love with Rihito, her butler. Does Rihito love her back? In the meantime Kento, who is in love with Mei-chan, also isn't planning to sit back and do nothing.

One of the worst

One thing I cannot stand about this manga is the art. Yeah, the butlers look alright, it it's the main character that's the problem.
Mei looks like a child and acts like one. It would be totally fine if the author drew her with a more matured body, but the art turns me off as it's as if the guys are lusting for a kid.
I don't get why the author gives the bad side characters good nice appropriate body but not Mei, so the whole story seemed like a bratty girl trying to woo her butler who does not seem to be interested at her for most times.
Everyone in this manga has shallow personalities, and there is so much drama going on!
Yes, I know the drama tag is there, but the drama made the story irrelevant and stupid. It gives off an unpleasant feeling whenever I read this manga, so I stopped, finally.
I have been reading the chinese scanlations, and the story will not be improving at all for the next chapters.
Please don't waste your precious time reading this, unless you like the drama with unpleasantness with the main character practically looking like a kid begging to be with her oh-so-sexy-butler.
I also hope that Rihito forgets about her and move on with his pathetic life.

I will just say... this series disgusts me. The main character, Mei, has the body and brains and maturity of a preadolescent. And despite that, she is extremely sexualized by the artist and viewed lustfully by at least (3!) different males, only one of whom is anywhere close to her age. I know this is escapist manga, but it gives me the chills:

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
There is a scene of Mei stripped down to her underwear. By a grown man who drugged her. There is also a kiss scene between Mei and Rihito, a 21-year-old.

The large age gap is not the problem.. the fact that the girl is an underdeveloped girl who's barely even a teenager is the problem. I believe the correct term is "hebephilia"... arguably a mental disorder.

There's a 4-year time skip at the end of volume 7, which makes the whole deal a little better... well... if you can forget all the really, really icky stuff going on before.

The story has a lot of emotional baggage between the brothers Kento and Rihito but falls short on romance for Mei. Leaving you wondering what is going on with Mei and why isn't anything working out for her. But on the other hand, the side characters are fun to read about as they all have sprouting romances with their butlers. Poor Mei, hope she finds love soon.

Definitely no Love Monster thats for sure.

urg i rely hope she ends up with Kento, it's such an amusing manga series, im gonna watch the drama too!!! Its also hard to tell who mei really likes which keeps you interested till to end just to find out urg!!! i really want to kno but most of the manga sites have finished uploading the series i'm starting to doubt the sites, every since onemanga had been closed down the uploading has been slow...might have to buy the series just to finish it. The story is so touching that it can make you cry in the beginning even thou it hasnt even gone to the climax yet

I'm not even going to wait till i've reached chapter 61 before commenting. The artwork is the only thing I don't have any problems with. Definite eyecandy in this manga. ^^

But as for the rest... The story starts off ok, even if many may find it a little cliche.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Character development... Well, the characters in this story bounce back for emotional turmoil/trauma far too quickly, apart from Lucia of course... The thing I can't stand is how the main character continuously fawns over Rihito even after everything Kento sacrificed for her. During the process of reading this manga, I've no idea whether to yell at Mei for her thoughtlessness, or pity Kento for his unrequited love towards Mei.

This manga has some really great comedy scenes and the artwork alone will definitely leave you wanting for more. But if you are looking for stories with depth and proper character development, there are better mangas out there for you to read.

This is a really good read so why all these nasty comments..? I didn't find it that cliche and I think the story is pretty good and original ( I read some bishie bulter stories already...), It's funny and gets even more intersting with each chp upload. Who cares who she ends up with... The posted chp.s are only a few compared to the whole story, I'm sure many things will happen so stop nagging and keep reading. She still has to become a 'Lady' so she'll probably get older and I don't think she's stupid! She's honest and has a different way of looking at things and she got 3 highest mark in class lol. She's not noticing Kento, who cares, maybe she will who knows... Let's just keep reading

Ok, so I think the story is good thus far. I guess that I'm just annoyed by that Lucia girl and her butler cuz they're both evil and mental. Doing stuff that's so creepy and using underhand methods to get Mei chan's butler, how low of them considering that Mei chan isn't doing anything to them so shouldn't they have more decency? I mean what kind of illness does that mental master and butler have? Also, I think Rihito is also kind of irritating. Falling into theirtrap like that. Unbelievable.
