Maid Sama!, Vol. 3 by Hiro Fujiwara
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Last installment we left with Seika Senior High midway through their sports festival with Misaki winning all the sporting events up to date (except one) with the goal to make life more comfortable for the female population.
In Maid Sama! volume 3 we continue the sporting festival by following an exhausted Misaki while she fights to win and also shows her soft side. Misaki's high school life isn't getting any easier neither is her work or social life. With many twists and turns from a cross dressing boy trying to steal Usui away by any means to mysterious happenings involving a high school hypnotist, life is anything but easy.
I found this volume fun and cute, although unlike the second volume it's more serious. The romance in this novel is slow if not at a standstill Usui just can't get his feeling to reach Misaki no matter how he tries. Although Misaki just isn't realizing her feeling, with helps prolong the story while the readers hope for the relationship to blossom. With the main two mostly detailed while the other characters are more background detail, it certainly helps with foreshadowing.
Don't get me wrong I did enjoy the read but I'll have to give it 3 out of 5 stars. I really liked Aoi-chan's appearance and hoped to see more of her, although it was short lived. The only serious event that might effect Misaki and Seika High is in the last chapter of Maid Sama! volume 3. If you're accustomed to reading my reviews, slow books with the intent to foreshadow the next book are a big turn off to me. This book is somewhat like that, although there were still some consistency to what I like to call mini stories or mini events.
