Maid Sama! Volume 1

Overview

Brilliant and overachieving, Misaki Ayuzawa is the President of the Student Council at Seika High School, formerly a boys' school. Unfortunately, most of the students are still male and stuck in their slovenly habits, so man-hating Misaki really socks it to 'em in an attempt to make the school presentable to attract more female students. But what will she do when the sexiest boy in school finds out that after school, Misaki works in a maid cafe!

    Different from other Maid mangas

    Obviously Anonymous reviewer has never read manga.

    This manga has a strong main character quite unlike other shoujo mangas where the main female protagonists are weak and easily manipulated and overwhelmed. Maid-sama (or rather Kaichou wa Maid-sama) takes a different twist from other maid story lines. It has a great romantic angle with plenty of drama and showcases the heroine going through a somewhat typical manga high school life.

    Maid-sama has also been developed into an anime, which skips around the actual chapters, and yet is still quite entertaining.

    Right!

    This is an amazing manga! The main character, Misaki, is headstrong and determined. There are many who would fall behind in a situation like her's. Instead, she fights for herself and others and strives for the best. Usui is a great person to Misaki, though she may not see. He's there for her and helps whatever way he can. The storyline is great, the characters are great, and the story is hilarious! I love this series; it is easy to follow and is very abosrbing.

    Cute Manga!

    It was bad enough that Misaki's father left her and her mother, but he left them with his debt too. In order to make ends meet and help her mother out, Misaki works at a cafe where the theme is... you guessed it, MAIDS. They serve their "masters" while wearing ridiculous maid costumes that are way too revealing but what can she do? She needs the money. During the day time though, Misaki is class president at her school, which up until a few years ago was an all boys school. The population is still majorly male but that doesn't stop her from cracking the whip and putting those boys in line. However, one day after school Usui, the schools biggest heart breaker just happens to walk by her work when she is taking out the trash in her maid costume. What will he do? Will he keep her secret or tell everyone, making her the laughing stock at school?

    I thought this was a cute story. Misaki is a really strong willed person due to previous events in her personal life. She takes charge and puts a lot on her shoulders both between work and school.

    Usui is used to girls falling all over him. He has never shown interest in any girl before. However, there is something about Misaki that grabs his attention. He decides to show up to her work place every day, which of course annoys the crap out of Misaki. He is always watching out for her and always seems to be there to help her out no matter what the problem is.

    One of my all time favorite manga!!!

    Like others who have read this series have said it is not your usual maid manga. It is completely different! The main character Misaki is depicted as a strong feminist at the beginning, however, as the series continues she proves that she is not a man hater. She is strong, stubborn, and oblivious when it comes to love and relationships. She works at a maid cafe to help support her family. She keeps this a secret, because she wants to keep her reputation at school in tacked since she is the first female student body president at a nearly all boys school. She freaks when Usui, the most popular boy in school, finds out about her job. He keeps it as his special secret and develops a special interest in Misaki despite his lack of interest in the female population since they all seem to confess their love to him on a regular basis. Throughout this magnificent series, you see Misaki and Usui's "friendship", I guess you can call it, grow and you really get to know and love the characters. This manga is definitely different. Not because of the plot line necessarily, but because of the characters.

    Great Manga!!

    I could not be happier with this manga! The main character Misaki is very strong and confident in herself, and doesn't let herself get down though her life is far from easy. While Usui might bug her, he is actually someone who gets her, and looks out for her. The Romantic side of this manga is great and will keep your attention. On the other hand, you will find yourself laughing! I liked it and will definetly be getting the second volume!!

    Wrong!!!

    This manga might not have been so terrible had it not COMPLETELY misinterpreted the meaning of feminism. The manga describes the main character to be a feminist, but she does not value gender equality, rather she dislikes men completely and thinks women superior. THAT IS NOT FEMINISM! The first tenant of feminism is gender equality, meaning that neither girls nor boys are better than one other. The manga is being marketed to young women who may not know anything about the current 3rd wave feminism, and this manga portrays it as nothing but blind "man hating," which is ridiculous! If you do read this manga, understand this, THAT IS NOT FEMINISM!!!
