Remember 'The Great Gatsby', where Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays the protagonist, does everything in his power to be with his unrequited love. Or 'When Harry Met Sally...'. Guys have feelings too. Just because they don't wear it on their sleeves doesn't mean that they don't have a heart. Although movies have always been the medium to showcase this popular genre, anime has changed the game with some pretty interesting stories.
Kaichou Wa Maid-sama! (abbr. Maid-sama) tells the story of Misaki Ayuzawa, as she battles all odds to become the first female high school council president of Seika High, formerly a boys-only school. Misaki is tough, hardworking, and enjoys the affirmation of all her female teachers, and earns the hatred of all the boys. But beneath the tough exterior, she has a soft heart, and works in a maid cafe to support her family. But one of the popular boys in high school, Takumi Usui, discovers her secret. There's no love lost between them, as each tries to assert their dominance in their safe zone, Misaki at school, and Takumi at the maid cafe.
