From Viz:

Choko Kuze is the sensible daughter of a venerable family who went bankrupt. She joins a real estate company as an entry-level office worker, but her eccentric boss is harder on her than anyone else in the company! After hearing him inadvertently call her "milady," she realizes he was the young servant boy she knew as a child. At work he's a tyrant, but after hours he insists on treating her like a lady of the nobility. Is romance even possible for a couple locked in such a crazy role reversal?

I read the available chapters and loved it... and I couldn't wait to read more, so I went and read the Chinese version... I got very put-off by the "medicine" they used when the main character got sick - I thought it was too crass. Things didn't get any better and the humor starts to seem repetitive so I give it up! What a pity! I love the artwork and I quite enjoyed 'Venus ni Arazu'!

It's not really how i thought ut would be... Since it's unexpectedly funny and lovable!!
And i'm pretty much sure the "mature" genre of this is not really a mature type manga but literally it is mature... I mean... Like fore mature thinker audience BUT! this manga can be read by young adults too.... It's just the wau characters talks here is very mature (there i think i got my point!)
I digress... But it's really funny... Definitely reccomend this to everyone who likes a different taste of manga!!! (^_^)

This is one of the most ridiculous things that I've ever read, but be damned if it isn't funny.

This series is much more enjoyable if not taken seriously. I guess that's why I was able to enjoy it thus far.

For once I've read a smut series that was MEANT to be funny, instead of laughing at stuff when I'm not supposed to.

This manga reminds me of Kimi Wa Petto, so if you really like this, you should check that out too. Overall, the bits of humor put in by the mangaka never failed to make me laugh (or smile). Other mangas tend to put stupid cliched comedic moments, but this manga was simply hilarious. The relationship between Chouko and "Chaa-chan" is very sweet, but the sexual parts were pretty smutastic. They also venture into a real life man's problem with

erectile disorder
This is very interesting because in all the manga's I've read, the men never had problems with their "lil partner", so I was surprised and slightly amused with this scenario. I enjoyed the plot and the characters, therefore I give it a solid 10.

i've read some of her work before and had always dropped them after the first volume or two. The characters were either too annoying or boring. HOWEVER, in this work, the heroine, Chouko, is likable and she doesn't spaz out like previous Yoshihara heroines. The main guy is the spaz here! =D The side characters are also really likable and funny. Those characters who came off as villains in the beginning are actually pretty nice and become good friends to the main guy and girl.

and moreover, this manga is really funny!

I read till ch20 (vol4)... my comment so far:

Dunno when I last laughed that hard when reading a manga.
The story is flat and starts cliché but the characters are very hearty and damn funny... funny in a absurd, silly and sometimes scary way with lots of slapstick. It turns too hilarious later and I think Yoshihara's enthusiasm has gone over board here and there -.-" But I don't care since it totally entertained me.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Like the single-chair-elevator that connects the secretary floor directly with the president's meeting room in the company, and all water that Kuze was supposed to serve got spilled on the way by the turbo acceleration XD

Or another example would be Kuze's new assigned job as the private secretary of the company's president. As for that she had to dress as a maidservant and sits in a monitoring room in his manision and watches on screens while the president himself sits in a chair beside her and joyfully tells her to call him 'Captain'... and the room has an awful similarity to a space-ships' bridge.

Or when Doumoto reads a hentai to Kuze for a good night story; has to show his lucky-underwear or comes up with his otaku knowledge of gundam - hahaha

That much about the absurd moments.

My co-workers may think of me as abnormal now (read it here at work and burst out laughing not only once) but I had two very funny days at work ^^

--- 2015/08/03 Update ---
Started from beginning to finished the last volumes properly and the quality falls for the last volumes. Last 10 chapters were boring to get through with.
Changed my rating from 9 to 8.

Those of you guys who complains that the manga is perverted - come on, a majority of Yoshihara-san's manga falls under the Smut category, so of course it's a little ecchi.

What I like about the mangaka's work is that it's done tastefully and quite close-to-life scenarios. Her artwork's simple yet elegant at the same time - that's what make me a big fan of Yoshihara-san's work.
