Manga: Oresama Teacher
Both humorous action-filled shoujo. Oresama Teacher revolves around delinquents and fist fights, while Samurai Drive is about the descendants of samurai who carry katanas and get into sword fights. The shoujo aspect comes from both manga focusing on the need for friendship rather than romance.
