You’re probably wondering if it’s worth watching or not, so check out this review to make an easy decision.
Misaki Ayuzawa has led a difficult life. She is an ambitious girl. She wants to improve the conditions of her school for the sake of the girls at the school. Her school, Seika High, changed recently from being an all-boys school to a co-ed school. The school is infamous for its student’s rowdy behavior. Thus, Misaki becomes the President of her school with a lot of effort.
The majority male body of the school views Misaki as a male hater. Misaki has a secret that she hopes no one will find out. Takumi Usui is the most popular boy at Seika High. He finds Misaki’s secret of being a part-time maid at a maid café. Will Usui keep her secret? Will he use the secret to threaten her?
The main characters, Takumi Usui, and Misaki, stand out in the show as characters with extreme strength and intelligence. Their talents make the other characters look up to them or envy them. While they are good characters, they are overly stereotypical.
The characters, such as Misaki’s mother and sister, add humor to the anime with how they live their life. The café characters make the anime more hilarious.
The different songs in the show sung by Kana Ueda and the OST sung by Saaya Mizuno have made people feel like standing up and dancing. Wataru Maeguchi is the most important songwriter of the anime.
The music in this anime is fun and exciting. “My Secret” is the top song that gets stuck in your head for some time.
The animation by J.C. Staff is good for 2010, but does not stand up against the current graphics or animation. Some would even say that there are better animations seen in 2010.
There could have been more details in the animation to improve the background. I felt that the end credit scene of Usui had better animation.
A Few More Thoughts!
This anime has been hilarious throughout and does not lack comedy in any episode. There have been a few problematic scenes, such as Usui picking up Misaki’s skirt to tease her, him kissing the Vice President of the Student Council, and so on.
The show tried to disprove the idea of “feminism” and “masculinity” being tied to gender. It does get messed up by the fact that Usui is better than Misaki.
While the anime has some troubling content when applied to real life, it can still be enjoyed as it has an adorable romance.
Spoiler: The fact that a love triangle is bought into the show is disliked by many fans. Although, it seems to work for the anime. If not for these problematic scenes and the animation, I would have given the show a 10/10.

Kaichou wa Maid-Sama!
It should be easier to understand the entire review in a few sentences- The anime is very heart-warming with its comedy timing and romance. The stereotypical life of the characters is not liked by everyone. While it cannot be executed in real life, it is a fun watch. Usui’s love for Misaki drives the plot of the story. It is an unrealistic anime. Thus, if you want to watch an unrealistic Rom-com, it is the perfect anime.
- Hilarious content
