Maid Sama

Valedia Gonzalez, Staff Writer

Maid Sama is a manga and tv show that has increased popularity throughout the quarantine. It’s a shojo manga that tells a cliche romance story. It’s a funny story with enjoyable characters. The tv show is one season with 26 episodes. Season 2 should be released on January 21, 2021. However, no updates have been made regarding its release. This anime takes place in Seika High, once an all-boys school known for its rowdy students. Misaki is an independent female student who is the student president of the school and secretly works at a part-time job named Maid Latte. However, Usui, a talented troublesome male student, stalks Misaki and discovers her secret. If Misaki’s secret were to be revealed, it would destroy her reputation of being entitled as a young, strict, independent woman. Usui slowly falls in love with Misaki, but Misaki, the woman she is, denies her feelings because of fear that she is no longer strong if she has a relationship with a man. She blames it on him, calls him a creep and pervert- even though he saved her from events that could have ended badly. I highly recommend binge-watching both seasons!
