Having spent time at a juvenile corrections facility, teenage delinquent Saki Asamiya is given a chance to redeem herself and delay her mother's possible death sentence by working as an undercover cop. Armed with nothing but a special yo-yo, Saki's assignment is to return to her high school and investigate on the corruption and mysterious deaths among the students. But in order to find the answers to the condition of her school, she must confront the wealthy and powerful Mizuchi sisters, who moved in and have taken control after her previous expulsion.

It's a one shot OVA as far as I know. There were manga but you can't find them in the United States. You get a little backdrop as to why the main character is in jail, but not much, then the story progresses into her taking back her old school from three evil sisters. Everything wraps up well for it being two episodes long, I just with there was more in genral. Saki Asamiya is a great character. If dropped into the right hands there could have been an awesome TV series. Its short, cheap, and worth the watch. I reccomend it to everyone, including read more

Lacking the evidence to put them behind bars due to Gozo's financial influence. The police black mail Saki Asamiya to infiltrate the high school, with the mission being to provide evidence to bring them down. Saki was a student at the school who ruled with an iron read more

First off, I watched this, and all of the other OVAs on my watched list as part of a project where I'm watching every subtitled OVA I can get my hands on. I watch each of them mostly blind, so this following review, which is my first attempt at one, is not coming from a mindset of being a fan of the manga, artist, or tv show, as many of these reviews seem to be.
Personally, I thought the story was ok for the first half of the anime. There was a certain point though where it all went down hill for me, with a plot read more
