To celebrate Tuesday's release of Hiro Fujiwara's 16th Maid Sama! (Kaichō wa Maid-sama!) manga volume, bookstores throughout Japan began hanging a poster that recreates the cover of the volume in live-action.

Cosplayer Hiromu Mineta won the chance to be the main lead Takumi Usui in a contest voted on by readers.

The website for the contest posted a video (in Windows Media format) of the photoshoot.
