Manga Crush (#1)

Manga Crush is brand new meme hosted by Nobonita @ Daydreaming Bookworm. It is a weekly meme hosted here,where you rant about the manga character on whom you have developed a crush.

This week I'm crushing on (like every other day) Usui Takumi from Kaichou wa Maid-sama!. As Ayuzawa Misaki calls him - "A mysterious perverted alien, from Planet Pheromones".

About the manga (Don't tell her but I stole the info from Nobonita's post. If you do, I'll know and then it'd be all katanas and bloodshed):

Title: Kaichou wa Maid-sama!
Year of release: 2005
Status: Ongoing
Author: Fujiwara Hiro
Artist: Fujiwara Hiro
Genre: Comedy, Drama,Romance,Shoujo
Blurb: Seika High School, once an all-boys school notorious for its wild students and for generally being a terrifying place for girls, has recently become a co-ed school. With the female population still a minority and living in fear of the over-the-top antics of the males, Misaki Ayuzawa takes it into her own hands to reform the school and allow the girls to feel safe in the rough environment. Training, studying, and even becoming the first female student council president of the school, Misaki has gained a reputation among the male students body as an uptight, boy-hating dictator and as a shining hope for the teachers and fellow female students. However, despite her tough-as-nails appearance, she secretly works part-time at a maid café in order to support her family. Unfortunately, her hard-earned reputation is threatened when the popular, attractive, and somewhat impassive Takumi Usui takes an interest in her after discovering her in a maid uniform after school.


*USUI TAKUMI* Sexiest Anime Man of 2010

Usui Takumi is an extremely popular and ladies' man at his school, Seika High. Usui has no interest in girls, until Misaki Ayuzawa catches his eyes. Strong, independent, bold, unmovable and a man-hater, Misaki turns down his advances at every turn possible. But Usui knows her secret and sometimes, maybe the helper needs saving herself.

Note: It's always like that - hot guy saving the feminist girl - but this manga people keep it original. I'll give you gist of the basic plot since I feel like it - Misaki strong, Misaki in trouble, Insert Takumi, Misaki mentally thankful, Takumi going into pervert mode, Takumi saves the day with Misaki, Takumi hurt, Misaki reconsidering Takumi, end of episode. Though, I  am not complaining. 

"Please don't be bothered by it, I'm just another stalker." 
-Usui Takumi 

Brutally honest and openly pervert-ish, Takumi won my heart with his very first run-in with Misaki. 

((Since Usui's blinding glory is stopping my brain - and heart - I'll let Usui's words and sexy pictures do most of the work. I'll throw in some tid-bits about him.))

"I was lonely since you didn't pay attention to me." 
-Usui Takumi

Takumi can be quite lonely since he doesn't have friends. Though Takumi has loads of followers in his fellow classmates, none of them treats him like a friend should. 

"That's exactly the way it should be. Doing only unexpected things, otherwise, i'll lose my reputation as a perverted outer-space human."
-Usui Takumi

Usui teases, irritates and provokes Misaki at every opportunity. And boy does he make me swoon when he tries to make Misaki blush.
"If you lay your hands on her again... I'll tear your throat out."
-Usui Takumi

Usui has a mysterious past, something about a missing mother and very rich father.

"Nurse me in your maid uniform."

-Usui Takumi

Usui is an expert at many things, but most of all at making hearts race and girls all around sigh and swoon.

"If you were to drown... I won't let anyone else give you mouth-to-mouth respiration." 
-Usui Takumi

    And I also got the bookmark today in my mailbox.Thanks a lot!! :D

  2. First of all, I am so utterly, genuinely, completely, truly and every other synonym of the aforementioned words that you forgave me. I was scared that you might cast me to hell or something.
    Second, i've been practicing at my ranting, glad you noticed :) No really, I've to let out my insanity somewhere since people around me usually turn deaf when I speak :D
    Lastly, you got the after dark bookmark, great! I seriously love this one, it's so beautiful and dark, i'm surely gonna use this one for a veryyyyyyyyy long time.

    1. Oookay...
      First of all,I don't have the power to cast you to hell,but I'm glad that you think so highly of me.
      Second,Do you know that all successful people in the world are insane in one way or the other?(I have no idea where that came from)
      Third,I absolutely love the bookmark!And the fact that she signed it with a silver magic marker! XD

  3. @Nobonita But you can curse me to hell, Hades's daughter, remember Adriana? (I apologize but today I'm feeling very ancient Greek nostalgic)
    I kinda agree on your second point, since I'm probably a bit insane myself :)
