It just so happens that the Yakuza family has four beautiful daughters, but one daughter, Hibari, who is more beautiful then the rest of the daughters, is actually a boy.

When i first starting watching this anime. I had my doubts about the art seeing as it was made quite a while ago but i gave it a shot and wasn't disappointed.

The story was great though i didn't feel as though it had a real plot maybe a collection of episodes instead. It revolves around a teenaged Kohsuka who has now moved in the home of his mother's friend, because she had died a while back. Its just so happens that the Yakuza family has four beautiful daughters, but the one daughter, Hibari, thats more beautiful than the rest is actually a boy. Hibari read more

Very dated.

Allthough I liked the animation and the characters a lot (very 1990), and some of the humor is pretty well written, the main premise would be a disgrace these days.

This isn't a spoiler, but the main running joke is transphobia. Allthough the crossdressing boy (trans girl) is treated as a hero with basically no flaws (she's awesome!), what goes for funny in every episode is how people are scared/think it's weird/diislike that part of her, and that's kind of hard to swollow these days, unless you're on the wrong side of history and decency.

The other jokes are good, though, it's not a barf fest, read more

Stop!! Hibari-kun! has an interesting and unique premise, and a good approach to it, for 1982. The humour is absurd and full of references to pop-culture like other gag-manga of the time, which would be a positive aspect if it didn't overwhelmed the show, obfuscating possibilities to focus on varied characters and specially develop *anything* of the relationship between the MC and Hibari, which stays limited to funny skits until the last episode. Which is specially bad since this is not a short anime, having 35 episodes.

Stop!! Hibari-kun! premise is quite cool (considering this is the 80's Japanese zeitgeist): the MC suddenly has to live read more

As a trans lady living in 2021, when I heard about Stop Hibari-kun, I had to watch. Not gonna lie, this series is one of the more complicated (for me) animes I've watched yet. It was equal parts awesome and dreadful.

As far as characters go, Hibari-chan is amazing. She's everything a trans girl aspires to be and more. She reminded me so much of our generation today. My character rating for this review is ONLY of Hibari. Every other character deserves a 3 or below.

Literally everyone else in the series was either passively transphobic or outright racist (including Hibari's father and the read more
