A ToRI Thursday Special
Manga volumes never coincide with Anime. There is some times where they run close together. Unfortunately, for me that is not the case with Maid Sama! My youngest sister was the one who introduced me to this manga. She only gave me one volume and I was hooked! She also only had one volume, so I couldn’t read any further. I eventually forgot about it, but then, all of sudden like old memories resurfacing, I encountered Maid Sama! again. This is my recap of a fierce romantic comedy. What can I say, I’m a hopeless romantic?
Here’s the main summary on the back of the book: Seika High School, once an all-boys school notorious for its wild students and for generally being a terrifying place for girls, has recently become a co-ed school. With the female population still a minority and living in fear of the over-the-top antics of the males, Misaki Ayuzawa takes it into her own hands to reform the school and allow the girls to feel safe in the rough environment. Training, studying and even becoming the first female student council president of the school, Misaki has gained a reputation among the male students body as an uptight boy-hating dictator and as a shining hope for the teachers and fellow female students. However, despite her tough-as-nails appearance, she secretly works part-time at a maid cafe in order to support her family. Unfortunately, her hard-earned reputation is threatened when the popular, attractive, and somewhat impassive Usui Takumi takes an interest in her after discovering her in a maid uniform after school. Afterwards he starts to rescue her from many misshaped situations and she slowly starts to have affections for him, even if she doesn't realize it.
The main character is very strong and at first she hates all men. Her father has left her only sister and mother with a huge debt and a house that is falling apart. The main character, Misaki Ayuzawa, is attending a school that just recently turned coed, so the population is 80% male and 20% female. She changes the school in a positive way, and along her path she finds love. I love romantic comedy novels, anime, and manga. It has a positive and funny spin to it. Maid Sama! has many spouts of comedy filled with romance. What better way to enjoy love, then with romance?
Now in the Anime it stops at 26 episodes, and I won’t spoil the ending. It is Your turn to go on a quest to find Maid Sama! The manga though is still incomplete, so you’re going to have to wait for that one. Maid Sama! is only one anime that has romantic comedy. It runs pretty close to the manga as well. Happy Searching!
