A Highly Enjoyable Otome Adaptation, with Great Martial Arts

by

Kenka Bancho Otome is a blast to watch, with tons of martial arts and otome-hijinks packed into each 12-minute episode. Our lead, Hinako, is surprised one day by her secret twin brother, who is both the son of an infamous yakuza and set to attend an infamous delinquent school. Being a wimp, he convinces Hinako to switch schools disguised as him, throwing her into an all-male lion's den. The twist being; the petite Hinako is really, REALLY good at martial arts! Each action scene is intricately animated, and clearly based on real martial arts (Hinako's style is a dead ringer for classic Jet Li).

Being based on an otome game, she gradually becomes surrounded with a variety of attractive male characters, but for the show, this comes off as her making friends her age for the first time. It's heartwarming to see her come into her own, even in such a ridiculously violent school.

I greatly enjoyed this anime, and recommend it to everyone.

Worth Every Penny - If On-Sale

by

This series is a great adaptation, for one. But beyond that, each episode is incredibly captivating. The characters are well-liked and developed - even the 'bad guys'. However, given that they're 12-minute episodes, paying more than $1 an episode is a tall order. There's so much to cover in 12/13 episodes that it's a real bummer each episode is only 12-minutes. I feel like if the normal 22-minutes, then there would've been more/adequate time to develop - they have backstory and history that is brought up, and then very, very quickly explored, because closing abruptly. I feel like if the structure of the show were different (22-minutes, or more than 1-season, for example), then this would be even better. But until then, it's really only worth the buy if it's drastically on-sale - because even the normal 'sale' of $15 is more than I'd be willing to pay for a 12-minute/episode season.

So-so adaptation

by -

I enjoyed the manga, so I tried the anime. To me, it was very so-so; the episodes are VERY short, and have even less depth to character and plot than the manga. Also, I was kind of thrown off by the (to me) weird and intermittent use of a sort of documentary/interview style to gloss over jumps in the "story" or to segue onwards. The art was quite nice, though.
