''A Devil and Her Love Song'', known as ''Akuma to Love Song'' in Japanese, is a shojo manga series created by Miyoshi Tomori.

The story revolves around an unusual and shockingly beautiful girl named Kawai Maria who was expelled from her previous school for "violence against a teacher", and soon transfers to Touzuka High School, a public school with low standards. Her sharp tongue and straightforward personality often leads everyone else to hate her with the exception of two boys, Shin Meguro & Yuusuke Kanda, who eventually get involved with her. With a devil's aura like hers and an arrogant facade to pair it up with, it's just too hard to be understood. And so Maria needs to deal with bullying, adjusting, fitting in and romance.

There is a total of 13 volumes available in Japan. In the US, it is being licensed and translated by Creator/VizMedia.

----
!!This series provides examples of:
* AfterSchoolCleaningDuty - used for bullying.
* AlmostKiss: See ForcefulKiss below.
* AmazingFreakingGrace: A song sung often by Maria.
* BeYourself
* {{Bishonen}}
* BitchInSheepsClothing: It's a shoujo manga, what would you expect?
** In fact, it's as if all the secondary female characters are out to screw Maria over in the cruelest way possible. [[HeelFaceTurn At first]].
* BrokenBird: Maria.
* BrutalHonesty: Ladies and gentlemen, here is ''the'' queen of this trope.
* CatSmile: Kanda tends to do this sometimes :3
* CaughtTheHeartOnHisSleeve
* [[spoiler:ChildOfRape: Maria]]
* CuteMute: Anna.
* ConcertClimax: ''Twice.''
* CrossPoppingVeins: Meguro, when he gets annoyed.
* CreepyCoolCrosses: The necklace worn around Maria's neck.
* DeclarationOfProtection: Both Kanda and Meguro, especially Meguro. [[spoiler: Not that Maria can't protect herself, she does so pretty well with her straightforward personality, but Meguro tells her he will always stand by her side no matter what.]] Also in recent translated chapters [[spoiler: Meguro rejects Maria's confession in order to protect her from the 'truth' about her mother's death. According to Anna, Maria remembers nothing of it.]]
* DefrostingIceQueen: Maria.
* DullEyesOfUnhappiness
* ElegantGothicLolita: Maria is sometimes dressed like this in cover art & such.
* FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon: How a lot of people sees Maria. It's how she gets the nickname "Devil Maria".
* ForcefulKiss: A (failed) attempt by [[spoiler:Kuros to Maria.]] Later, [[spoiler:Meguro]] succeeds.
** And then [[spoiler:Maria to Meguro.]]
* GirlPosse: Ayu Nakamura and her friends.
* IDontWantToRuinOurFriendship: Maria towards Meguro.
* JerkAss: The story has its set of them, but none stands out more than the teacher. He is an inconsiderate jerk and deliberately overlooks the bullying to Maria. He then passes a MoralEventHorizon when he deliberately poors ink on Maria while she is wearing her performance dress, accuses her of ditching the performances when she does not show up, when she does show up he accuses everyone of his students that they could have done it because of their history with Maria, and then after the resulting chaos he quietly admits to Maria he did do it, [[BlatantLies claiming it was an accident]], but would only admit if she apologized to him. [[SarcasmMode What a great teacher, huh?]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Meguro, ultimately also [[spoiler:Ayu Nakamura]].
* {{Keet}}: Kanda, so very much. He's usually the chirpiest out of the bunch.
* KidsAreCruel: More like ''highschool girls'' are cruel.
* LuminescentBlush: [[{{Quality}} There's one panel where it gets so bad Maria's nose inexplicably disappears.]]
* PerkyGoth: [[DidntSeeThatComing Tomoyo.]] Maria ''looks'' like she should be this but she likes fluffy, white, angelic things.
* PickOnSomeoneYourOwnSize ...Sensei.
* SarcasticConfession: [[spoiler:Kanda's]] declaration of love. ''Twice''.
* ShrinkingViolet: Tomoyo.
* SplitScreenReaction
* StalkerWithACrush: Maria considers herself to be one in the past. For ''Anna''.
* StepfordSmiler: Kanda, but Maria sees through it.
* StockShoujoBullyingTactics: Maria has her uniform ripped up and used as a flag, and balloons of ink put into her school shoes.
* SuperDeformed: Kanda does this a lot when being overly friendly.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Maria.
* SweetTooth: Maria likes ''obscenely'' sugary foods.
* {{Tareme Eyes}}: May apply to Hana and Anna. Looks ''can'' be deceiving though.
* TraumaInducedAmnesia: [[spoiler: Young Maria when her mother died.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Meguro and, to a lesser extent, Maria. Most obviously, though, Ayu, once she starts getting along with Maria.
* NewTransferStudent: Maria in chapter 1. She was transferred to another school because she had hit a teacher in her old one. Her new classmates didn't welcome her so much in the beginning...
* UnusualEyebrows: Hana Ibuki. Probably her most [[BigOlEyebrows noticeable feature]].
* {{Yandere}}: [[spoiler:Anna]], though her violent and manipulative tendencies might be for more reasons than just Meguro.
