President of the Student Council at the almost-all-boys Seika High School, the hard-as-nails Misaki Ayuzawa works every day to make life easier on the small population of co-eds who have enrolled there. Though an unholy terror to all things male during school hours, in order to provide for her impoverished family, she secretly works after school at a maid cafe in Akihabara. However, when campus hottie Usui Takumi wanders into the restaurant during her shift, suddenly she finds her reputation in school at his mercy...
Kotoko Aihara has always been in love with Naoki Irie; he’s tall, handsome, and rumored to be the most intelligent student in Japan – who wouldn’t be? Only one thing stands in the way of a relationship with Irie: Kotoko is ditzy and is at the bottom set of her school, and Irie-kun hates nothing more than ditzy, stupid girls. When disaster strikes and Kotoko is forced to move in with Irie-kun’s family, she suddenly sees her chance to bridge the gap. After all, even cool, super-intelligent guys must have a soft spot, right?
Yukino Miyazawa appears to be the perfect high school student. She is at the top of her class and the envy of all her classmates, but no one knows that things are not what they seem. When at home, Yukino is spoiled, slovenly, stubborn, and spends every spare minute studying to keep her place at the top; so when she's knocked from the top by Soichiro Arima, she vows to destroy him. One day Soichiro tells Yukino he likes her, but she quickly turns him down since him falling for her means she's ‘won.' Soon after, Soichiro discovers that Yukino's prim and proper attitude is a facade and blackmails her into doing some of his school work. Yukino gets fed up with the situation and stands up to Soichiro, causing him to apologize and re-declare his true love for her after learning what Yukino is really like. Yukino has also fallen for the real Soichiro after his confession of also having to play the role of the perfect student. Together they decide to stop pretending and learn how to be themselves.
Sawako Kuronuma is just like any other high school girl who wants to make friends and be useful. The only problem is she bears a worrying resemblance to Sadako from 'The Ring!' Because of her reputation, people are not only terrified of her, but small dogs even bark in fear at her presence; in fact, the only person in school who will talk to her is the lively class hottie, Kazehaya. As the pair spends more time together, Kazehaya slowly begins to bring Sawako out of her shell and soon their feelings for each other develop further. Though with her crippling insecurities, lack of social skills, and a series of cruel rumors and misunderstandings, it seems that Sawako's dream of a normal life won’t be quite so easy to obtain.
Kimi ni Todoke and Maid-sama! are similar to me because of the relationships between the characters. The relationships that develop in the school settings and the support system that the main female protagonist is given from the ‘hero’ of the series.
If you loved the strong and fearless attitude of Misaki in MAID-SAMA you could also like the female protagonist in LOVEY DOVEY who is of course supported by a cool and hot guy. Like Misaki, Saika(female protagonist) has secrets she wants to hide and tries really hard( though they are totally different). All in all I think that the manga is funny, has a cute romance, is also a little smutty and even has a moral in it.
Yukina isn't just a high school student, she's also secretly a popular novel writer. Due to her looks and personality, the girl doesn't have much of a social or love life and is avoided by everyone except her cousin Akira. So when the fans of her novels ask for Yukina to incorporate more love aspects into her stories, she decides to take immediate action – she'll force an unsuspecting student into a fake relationship with her to get more experience for her craft! The 'lucky' man is Kitami, a popular student who keeps a journal of all of the women he's convinced to confess to him. Holding the book above his head as blackmail, Yukina begins her experiments with Kitami – but others, such as Akira and an old friend of Kitami's will stand in her way...
Both are about a highschool girl unexperienced with love and the most popular guy in school that will help them experience it. The story starts at these manga with a secret that gets discovered and the other has to keep it. They have heartracing (especially Watashi ni xx Shinasai!) and funny moments that will make you fall in love with it. If you loved one, you'll definitely love the other one as well!
