Arguably one of the best rom-coms, we never got to see beyond season 1
Kaichou wa Maid-sama, or simply Maid-sama was one of the first rom-com animes I had watched. Having just started watching anime, I got done with the bloody and action-oriented ones, and needed something light hearted. This one was picked out randomly from a Google suggestion. The story was far from random.
There’s a reason why Maid-sama is at the top of romance animes. It goes beyond the usual romance and comedy we see. One thing I liked was that the story does not cater to the fan service for its comedy. There’s probably zero fan service in it. The characters and the problems they go through are relatable, and the way they handle things and deal with each other are amazing. It’s also a special treat to see the lead character Misaki lowering her tough exterior as the story progresses.
Season 2 details
It’s been ten years since the first season came out. A 26-episode anime adaptation produced by J.C.Staff aired between April and September 2010. A special episode also aired after the first season ended.
The show actually faced a lot of criticism at the time due to the maid cafe that was a predominant part of the story. Many criticised it for being sexist and just a few supported it. The show picked up momentum in the later years and became the classic it is now. It has its share of negatives and minor clichés in certain parts, but the overall story still won over.
Season one ended on a pretty conclusive note, but many fans still demanded more and even signed online petitions. But that didn’t seem to work and no further announcements happened. Those who want to know further will have to read the manga, and you will be happy to know that it ends on a good note.
