Kaichou wa Maid-sama! Chapter 01

Thursday, March 22, 2007

You read it right, the student council president is a maid at a maid café! This is quite a unique story for me; a kind of plot that I can only imagine in hentai films hehe but seems to be a good scenario for a romantic comedy. You have Misaki, the super strict school council president who relentlessly badgers students with school rules; and Takumi the most popular guy in school who developed an interest in Misaki.

Pacing is fast, bringing in characters with bits of history. Family problems forced Misaki to work part time and ended up in the maid café while studying and doing council work. Takumi is your silent-shojo-type of guy who knows how to fight but with the brains of Soichiro Arima (Kare Kano). Fate led them together when Takumi saw Misaki while she was working at the café and wearing a maid uniform of course. But the good guy Takumi kept everything to himself. This worried and irritated Misaki.

The story seems to be plot-based and character-driven at the same time. We got an interesting setting – Misaki’s part-time work has already been discovered; a thing she’s trying hard to hide from school? What if the school finds out? I’m guessing it would eventually come to that point and that would be interesting. Characters are likewise appealing. Misaki looks like Haruhi of Ouran except for the bossy aura she emits. She’s the type who looks at the practical side of things and motivated by the plight of her family. Her character will likely develop later on. Takumi looks like one who has a dark or complicated past. Some secrets about him might also be revealed.

Artwork is good; characters are distinct. As to the story, it’s still hard to predict. Lot of things can happen. This makes it interesting. I’m looking forward to the next chapters.
