This has to be one of the cutest shoujo anime series I’ve seen. It’s so adorable and so funny. I forget how funny it is until I re-watch it. However, it is definitely not a favourite due to the fact that I haven’t finished it (I got bored).
Misaki works part-time as a maid and she’s the class president at her school. Students aren’t allowed part-time jobs so she keeps hers a secret, however Usui, along with a few others, discovers this.
The characters in this series are all very funny, Usui especially. I love Misaki and Usui’s relationship, while they don’t always get along, they are very cute together. Their relationship isn’t like every other shoujo couple’s relationship, and theirs is very unique.
Usui is my favourite character in the series. Mainly due to how funny he is. He’s also the ideal boyfriend type, which makes me ship him with Misaki so much more.
However, Usui and Misaki’s relationship is very slow building, which works very well in this series. It’s the very thing that got me to continue watching the series as I was desperate to see if they end up together.
However, this did get boring after a while, especially when I was close to finishing the series, and I did end up giving up on the series, though I do have a good guess on how the series ends. It’s not the best shoujo I’ve seen in terms of romance (which is the reason why I watched it in the first place), but if I was to re-watch it as a comedy instead then I’ll probably enjoy it a lot more and be able to finish it.
The story for this isn’t very strong, and some episodes didn’t seem relevant at all and were quite boring (I’m pretty sure I skipped these). I would have found it more interesting if it had a consistent storyline throughout with plot twists, rather than several episode-only stories. If it had a consistent storyline throughout, I may have enjoyed it a little more. It definitely falls behind similar shoujo like Fruits Basket and Ouran High School Host Club, both of which had a storyline throughout even though it had episode-only stories as well.
Aside from the negatives, this is still an enjoyable anime to watch and can easily be re-watched a few times. It’s definitely worth watching if you’re a shoujo fan and if you like anime series like Ouran High School Host Club and Fruits Basket.
