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"?

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 this series started out as interesting, you know, when takeru was bullying her and stuff. Then in the middle it got a little boring. However the twists and turns made it very interesting and forced me to finish the entire thing in a day. The ending was nice. I am happy, everyone's happy. Typical, but satisfactory. Everyone loves happy endings, afterall. I would recommend this to people who like a simple story, but just get past the first few volumes. Read on!!

It was just exhausting to me.
Art: Definitely not my thing. As they say Art is in the eye of beholder, well my beholding eye didn't like the art at all.
Characters: Annoying. Obtuse. Stupid. The only character I liked was Haru. There is the strong silent type and then there is the egoistical, egomaniacle, violent a-hole type. It doesn't mean that you belong to the first group if you just don't talk and be the main character. And if you keep getting violent, doing only stuff what you think is right without talking to anybody it rather means you belong to the 2nd one. See Takeru.
I get the softhearted dudette do right type of shoujo heroin. But maaaaaaaaaaaaaan! If you keep crying every effing single time it gets just very annoying. I am fairly certain that after the middle, btw after she said for the umpteenth time, i am going to get stronger, she started crying and then for almost an entire volume she didn't stop. Enough already!!!
Plot: The summary of the plot reads well on the paper. But it was really exhausting to get through in the manga. At one point I just wanted scream enouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuggggggggggghhhh! That's when I stopped reading.
But like I said at the beginning, Art is in the eye of the beholder and tastes differ. I do usually like strong silent types, the bad boys that are actually good boys. And the heroins that bring them out of the closet but this couple was just not it. He was too egoistic and she neeeeeeeeeeevvvvvvvvvvvverrr stopped crying for Pete's sake!

It was fine, I just dislike the roundabout ambiguous way Takeru expresses himself. It becomes annoying sometimes. It's a self righteous tough love that is actually useless, just say things clearly damn it -__-

I was annoyed by the fact that he decided to leave without even discussing it with her and then suddenly everyone's happy. Damn! 5 years, really? Usually when you really love someone, you want to be with them. It was just too easy for him to go away and be ok with the separation. Then Boom! happy end *Rolls Eyes*

The story was so wonderful. The characters were memorable. I agree with some of the other users that this manga seems a bit like Marmalade Boy but a bit more enjoyable. The art in the beginning was a tad bad but as the story progressed so did the mangaka's art.

The ending told in Hikaru's point of view was a cute suprise.
And the last picture made me extremely happy. I had already watched the Taiwanese drama and was greatly happy with it. After reading the manga that inspired the drama, it made me want to watch the drama again for the 5th time. So I will.

i personally isn't crazy about romance manga because most of them are cheesey and corny and boring but this one is good. The art isn't good and cute but the story makes up for it.

At first I liked this manga a lot , but the end is such a nonsense. I don't know what you think about these stories where the main couple have a lot of hard times and when all is OK one of them leave to study abroad, work around the world or to live in alaska, but I think they are bullshit. I'd like to listen to your opinion but if It were me, like hell I will be waiting 5 years for him.

Deep and touching...

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

I tried, really, to get over the MC's cross-eyed facial expressions. I think the mangaka was going for cute, insecure and nervous. It irritated me. I did read some of the comments about the art being a bit rough and normally, I can deal with it. But the cross-eyed protagonist isn't my thing. Story-wise (as far as I was able to read up to) it wouldn't step into the boundaries of uniqueness, but was something I could've kept reading. Too bad.

The story got really good at the end but really slow moving. Artwork got better as the story went along. I LOVE the side story of the little boy so funny! Other than that I give the story a 6.9 but the side story a 10
