Anime Review: Kaichou wa Maid-sama

Episodes: 26
Genre: Shoujou, Romance
Related Words: Maid cafe, school, president, secret
Rating: 4.5/5

Being the first female student council president isn’t easy, especially when your school just transitioned from an all boys high school to a co-ed one. Aptly nicknamed “Demon President” by the boys for her strict disciplinary style, Misaki Ayuzawa is not afraid to use her mastery of Aikido techniques to cast judgment onto the hordes of misbehaving boys and defend the girls at Seika High School.

Yet even the perfect Ayuzawa has an embarrassing secret—she works part-time as a maid at a maid café to help her struggling family pay the bills. She has managed to keep her job hidden from her fellow students and maintained her flawless image as a stellar student until one day, Takumi Usui, the most popular boy in school, walks into the maid café. He could destroy her reputation with her secret… or he could twist the student council president around his little finger and use her secret as an opportunity to get closer to her.

General Overview (Without Spoilers)

I had heard of this anime a couple of years back and someone had recommended it to me before, but I never watched it in its entirety until now. And I have to say, it is such a cute shoujou anime and I really liked it from beginning to end.

It was very unique (in some ways) in the characters, the plot, and how everything progressed. There were some standard shoujou concepts, such as a love triangle, but it wasn’t too overboard that it took away from the story.

The episodes were really fun to watch and it was great seeing how Usui and Misaki’s relationship developed throughout the show. There wasn’t a whole lot of character development in either characters, but you could see some in comparison to the first and last episode.

It was a fun and cheerful anime to watch and I’d recommend this show to anyone who likes Shoujou anime.

    I once heard the pacing can be slow though, and I remember a friend complaining how the manga is littered with so many monologues from the girl. She hated it so much.
    I saw the first few episodes of the series, but it didn’t really stick with me. The pair feels a bit off to me. What do you think makes them great?

      I can see what you mean. For me, however, I loved it especially because of the characters and plot. The characters felt very enjoyable for me to watch and the plot was interesting enough that it held my attention until the end of the series. It was a very nice and light hearted anime, but I have to say the characters were the best part.

      As for the couple themselves, I felt like their contrasting personalities made them a fun pair to watch and it was enjoyable on the long run to see how their relationship adapted. It might not be the most realistic anime out there, but it gave me a few laughs and I really liked it. 🙂

      It’s sad to hear you didn’t like it as much, though. Why did you not have a good impression of it?
