Tokyo Butei High school—It was a special school where armed detectives, also known as "Butei" are being brought up. Tooyama Kinji is a sophomore student who has the unique body which activates a "super mode" when it was stimulated by "something." He tries to hide it to others in order to live a peaceful life.

This review will be discussing the light novel, not the manga or anime.
A slight disclaimer before hand is in order, I've only had the opportunity to read the first 3 out of 9 published books so far, but it certainly is enough to paint a fairly detailed picture of my impressions.
The story can be a little generic, although the setting is very interesting, albeit a tad outrageous. No major spoilers here, but the generic harem that's inevitably built up is made rather...uniquely.
I enjoy this series not for its generic characters, or the ridiculous plot devices, but the setting and character development that is relatively read more

GREAT MANGA. Even though there isnt much character development yet, the manga was hilarious. Basically the story is about a young man who has a power which turns him into a super human. However, it can only be turned on if Kinji (main character) gets sexually excited! D: A drawback is that Kinji develops a split personality which is overly protective of woman, and kinji wants to avoid women at all costs! That's when Aria comes in :P
Hilarious, I highly recommend it :3
