Kaichou wa Maid-Sama!

Director: Hiroaki Sakurai
Studio: J.C.Staff
Kaichou wa Maid-Sama is based upon the popular manga titled Maid Sama! throughout the series, you meet the following three main characters:
Misaki Ayuzawa - the first female president of the student body.
Usui Takumi - a male heartthrob notorious for breaking almost every girls heart.
Hinata Shintani - Misaki's childhood friend who has had a crush on her since he met her when they were younger.

Plot: (9/10)
The basis of this story revolves around the three main characters mentioned above. The series starts off with just Misaki and Usui being regular students attending high school in Japan. Yes, you're right. This show is a school romance, and a funny one at that! The school they attend was an all guy school notorious for wild students, but they recently switched to co-ed. It starts out with Usui falling for Misaki, while everyone else in the school cowers in fear before her. You see, she is a very strong person who lives with her mother and her sister. Her father abandoned the family and left them with nothing. Because of these troubles, she grew into a very independent, reliable person. She is not afraid to enforce the rules at school, hence the reason why everyone is afraid of her. Anyways, the event that really kicks the show into motion (and has Usui start falling for Misaki) is when Usui discovers that the president (Misaki) actually works a part-time job at a maid cafe in the next town over! From this point on, things become interesting, and just when you think you know what's going to happen, a twist appears.

Characters: (10/10)

Misaki Ayuzawa - Strong, reliable. Misaki is the head of the student body and is feard by most of the school. Her reputation is solid, but nobody knows that she works as a maid for a part-time job... at first.

Usui Tamuki - Cool, quiet. He is basically the master of everything, but the only one he goes for is Misaki even when he can have any other girl.

Hinata Shintani - Bubbly, hungry. Hinata is always hungry, and usually pretty content. He is persistent and there's more to him than meets the eye.

Animation: (9/10)
The animation in this show so far seems pretty good to me, but I've heard some people say that it looks too "2-D". This doesn't bother me, but just as a warning to all of the people who really pay attention to the art style, this one isn't unique. It looks a lot like other shoujos, so beware. Other than that, it's a great show and I hope you like the art style!

Overall: (9.3/10)
This show is great I really enjoy it. One downside is the ending. Sure, it's not bad, but it's kind of a let down that the show just stops after that. You'll know what I mean if you watch it. Still, I really enjoy it. If you want more evidence that it's a great show, check out Animeseason's highest rated anime list. As of today, it is number one!
