Good news. Kaichou wa Maid-sama! is one of my favorite shoujo romantic comedy manga. I hope the anime adaptation is more successful than S.A.'s was. That was a missed opportunity that shouldn't be repeated.

Well anticipated when the drama CD was released two years ago. Wish they keep the original cast led by Sanae Kobayashi and Tomokazu Sugita.

One of the few shoujo titles that I actually like. Should be interesting how they go about this one. I always pictured this one being animated. And, for some reason, being released over here by Viz. Eh. Too early to make assumptions.

I'll join in on the thumbs up chorus. I picked Maid Sama up on a whim from the Tokyopop booth at SDCC and have been enjoying it ever since. It's a fun story and could be an equally fun anime.

My current fave shoujo manga-- funny, smart, and fresh, with plenty of fanservice without being too saccharine. Awesome~

Not at all. Haruka is an ojou type. Misaki is definitely not. Anime hyper

Looks cute! I love a good shoujo, especially when every season is otherwise inundated with moe, moe, and more moe.

I have to give a big "WTF" at the localized title, though, given that "Maid-Sama" kind of misses the entire point of the name. Ahhh, whatever.

I don't think it's so bad. For one, it associates itself with the original Japanese title (which a lot of readers would be familiar with because of the series' popularity as a scanlation). And it's got the juxtaposition of the normally subservient "maid" with a highly respectful -sama suffix. Other than that, it's short and easy to remember and pronounce. 'S all good!

Yay for more shoujo anime!!

Couldn't have said it better myself, comrade.

I actually squealed in joy upon reading the article's header. Anime hyper I can't wait to see how it comes out!

Also, Misaki works as a maid. It's her part-time job, not her pastime. Haruka celebrates her fandom in secret.

Just finished manga volume 7 two hours ago. spoiler[Misaki and Takumi finally kissed, with fireworks in the background.] Anime hyper

Now I wonder if Sanae Kobayashi would use her Lucy/Nyuu voice. Wink
