It is no lie to say that I loved Kaichou wa Maid-Sama with all my heart. As the seond anime I watched clean through, and my current second favorite, I hardly thought another romance can compare (I watched Clannad shortly after, so this changed, but Maid-Sama was funner, though not as touching)

After my intial watch, I proceeded to find other Romance animes. Ones that stuck out were, as mentioned, Clannad, Fruits Basket, and OHHC (though that barely qualifies, but I like the show).

Then I heard of Special A.

Everyone was comparing to Maid-Sama, so I tried to stay away, as to not see what I thought was a rip-off of one of my most beloved animes. But, soon enough my curiosity and lack of new animes got to me, and I watched it.

My opinion?

I should have watched it ages ago.

While similiar in many aspects to Maid-Sama, it is distinct enough to be enjoyable for it's own sake. The romance between the leads, Hikari and Kei, while similiar to Usui and Misaki, is handled very differently. Usui fell in love with Misaki around episode three, and the rest of the series was Misaki coming to terms with her feelings for...

We all know that many people are touched and fell in love with this series.Its story shows the friendship that is bound between seven people with different unique personalities,also because some of them are childhood friends.SA does prove that no matter what you are in life,friendship knows no boundaries.
Special A has 7 characters mainly hikari hanazono and kei takishima.These two are rivals since childhood.Hikari is a simple girl who's mission in life is to beat kei takishima, this is because kei is the only person who can beat her.Kei on the other hand has a hidden love interest in hikari since then.The love and rivalry is shown in the story which gives it uniqueness unlike in other manga series.
One thing is for sure:No matter what people will continue to love and will never ever forget Special A.

Out of the house,you`ll be waiting for a new day it also failed yesterday to bid farewell.Blue sky and fluffy clouds gathered to ride aboard on this journey.You would like to see the free wind slow down,you are looking at a walk and his heart aching

The wind carries the scent of colourful season,always honest to step on the feet it can.You look at the sky with glittering feeling.Why be happy about them at dusk and sunrise.

Look mean-spirited kind words and this gap.i realized that the lid to spill on the left cheek and pinch.Back to the battle of words are you said red-stained face to hide.

Floating in the clouds are wrapped in warm sunshine.A lot of people I`m surrounded by forward eyes to fight against bigotry and spiteful the conversation even heats my back chest.The wind blows from the sun was hidden by clouds.I light the trail and even your profile.Forever seek to check the high growth like walking out into the blue sky...

Hikari Hanazono has always been second to Kei Takishima. When they were six years old, their pro-wrestling loving fathers introduced them to each other. Assuming that she was the best in wrestling, young Hikari challenged Kei to a wrestling match only to be thoroughly defeated by him. Ever since that fateful incident, Hikari swore to beat Kei in school grades, sporting events or any competition. To do this, she has enrolled in the same school as Kei since elementary. Now she attends Hakusenkan, an ultra elite school, that costs her carpenter father a lot of money. Hikari and Kei are the top two students in the school, with Kei holding firmly to that number one position. While Hikari considers Kei to be a rival and important friend, she is completely unaware that Kei loves her. The story primarily focuses on Hikari and her constant attempts to defeat her one and only rival, Kei, and how she finds love in their rivalry.
