Alright, this week will be dedicated to one of my favorite animes, Kaichou wa Maid Sama. I know what you might think, “Oh no! It’s only one season!”
Maid Sama is amazing. There are many animes out there that leave an unfinished feeling when they are only one season but not this one. The characters will make you laugh, cry, and make you want to throttle them. If you really don’t feel satisfied with only one season hop over to the manga, it’s completed and it is a masterpiece.
So here’s a quick lowdown to see if you’re interested. Kaichou wa Maid Sama is a comedy/romance centered on Misaki Ayuzawa. She’s the student council president at a her school (which recently became a coed school from its all male base) and she rules with an iron fist in order to make the school more appealing to girls so that they could have a more balanced male/female ratio. She’s strict, strong, intelligent, diligent, and adorable. This might sound like your run-off-the-mill perfect character but our dear Ayuzawa has a secret, she works at a maid café.
This might not seem like a big deal to many people, but this is a problem for Ayuzawa because her school doesn’t allow students to work. It would also be an issue if her classmates found out because she fears that they will cease to respect her. She does her best to hide her alter ego but Usui Takumi (who is admired by all the boys at the school and is always beating Ayuzawa for the #1 spot in exam grades) finds out her secret.
You might notice if you’re interested in watching that you have to read subtitles, trust me, it’s much better than the dubbed versions. Sometimes things don’t translate well or companies try to make the anime “cooler” by adding their own slang and by the end creating a monster that is equivalent to a toddler trying to cook. With subtitles (subs) you don’t have to worry about that as much. Alright, if you want a bit more info about Kaichou wa Maid Sama click here.
