‘Maid Sama’ is a romantic comedy that follows the story of a girl and a boy who come from totally different backgrounds and find love despite their differences. Things used to be simple and boyish in Seika High, until it became a co-ed school. Because of the majority of students being male, the girls have a hard time adapting to their environment. Misaki Ayuzawa decides to make things better for her fellow female students. She performs incredibly well in both athletics and academics and becomes the new star of the school after becoming the first female president of the school council. Even with all these accomplishments, Misaki doesn’t have an easy life at home. She, secretly, works part-time at a maid café to help her family by paying off her father’s debt. Things take a complicated turn, Takumi Usui, a popular boy at Seika High, discovers her secret.
Watching two poles-apart people find a connection in the midst of all the increasing difficulties and confusions is one of the most common, yet pleasing things, in the romantic genre. It becomes even better when it is more of a comedy than a tragedy, and ‘Maid Sama’ manages to walk the perfect balance between these things.
