About Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight! Blu-ray
Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight! contains episodes 1-13 of the anime directed by Ryunosuke Kingetsu.
The year is 2035, and birth rates have dropped dramatically across Japan. The drop in student population, combined with large cultural shifts, have made it so attending high school is no longer considered mandatory. Seioh Academy is no different, with student morale at an all-time low. At the start of the new term, a boisterous girl by the name of Amamiya Manami--nick-name Manabi--starts life at this new school.
Her enthusiastic passion lands her the job of student council president on her very first day of classes! Together with her classmates Mika, Mutsuki, Mei, and Momoha, will she be able to turn this school around and create the dazzling, exciting school life she’s always dreamed of?

Ratings & Reviews
An Interesting Slice of Life
by BFox -
Wow, never thought this would get licensed because it is such an obscure title. It’s definitely slice of life but with a positive message showered throughout: Enjoy your school life to the fullest! With the setting taking place in the future where many young adults go straight to working instead of school because they don’t see the point, the positive message is pretty uplifting albeit cheesy. It’s a joy to watch with pretty catchy soundtrack for their comedic skits.
There is no 13th Episode!

For the classic anime, the art-style were ahead of its time. Just know that it's more of student council doing their work toward what they want to do.
If you want some action-oriented anime, it's not for you, unfortunately. It has comedy in it, though.
Just for the record, there is no 13th Episode at all. It was an error on the back of the case. There are only 12 episodes altogether.
