So, What's It About!?
Choko Kuze is the sensible daughter of a venerable family who went bankrupt. She joins a real estate company as an entry-level office worker, but her eccentric boss is harder on her than anyone else in the company! After hearing him inadvertently call her "milady," she realizes he was the young servant boy she knew as a child. At work he's a tyrant, but after hours he insists on treating her like a lady of the nobility. Is romance even possible for a couple locked in such a crazy role reversal?
*This plot line is so hilarious, imagine your handsome boss being a total jerk by day, and a total sweetheart by night. That is exactly what this manga brings to the table and I got to say that I do love it.

Review Me
The chemistry the two characters have is a bit lacking in the begging and Domoto (boss) really gives of a perv feeling, but its all in a good day of fun. This story is a great adult comedy and I think that anyone of the appropriate age would really enjoy this manga. I enjoyed how Choko and Domoto relationship grew and how she started to fall in love with his crazy antics. The only thing that I disliked was her need for him. Throughout the manga she went from a strong independent character, to this girl that needed her man around her to feel confident and safe and that just pulled my strings a bit. Now let us move on to the art! Yuki Yoshihara is a brilliant artist her characters have great expression and unique looks and its just beautiful crisp and clean and not a jumbled up mess. Her art styles is really different from others almost giving life like proportions and a different sense of fashion that really captivates.
