Maid Sama! started out pretty good and it showed great promise. Unfortunately, Misaki's treatment of Usui, being a complete jerk towards him for no reason over and over again, seemed a bit too much. It gave out that childish vibe like she can't express herself without being an ass. Too bad, because I really liked her apart from that. She seemed like a strong female figure and I highly respect that. I just wish they would've made her evolve more throughout the season. Instead, she stayed stubborn, crushing pretty much every bit of romance under her feet, until the very end. There things started to turn a bit for the better, but it was too little too late.
Seems to me like 99% of this "romance" between the two is from Usui's side which is not only unrealistic but also makes you wonder why he doesn' just give up. I'm sorry to say this but for something that was supposed to be a romantic anime, it sure tried its best to blow out the stem. It's a shame really because this thing had so much potential for growth. Instead, the creators chose to go with a childish version of a "romance."
