The Private Aichi Symbiosis Academy was originally a high school for high-class girls. When it became co-ed, the girls, out of fear, asked to be permitted to bring weapons to school. When that was enforced, a five-member vigilante corps-like organization called the "Supreme Five Swords" was also formed.

After many generations, the five swords eventually became a group which corrected problematic students, and the academy started proactively accepting such students in order to correct them.

Nomura Fudou was sent to this school after being part of a huge brawl. What will he do when the only options he has after enrolling are being expelled from that school or being corrected the way the rest of the male students there were...by being forced to dress and act like a girl!

ngl, I forgot what this show was about lol. What I do remember is the plot is pretty unimportant to the enjoyment of the show. If you're on the hunt for another harem show, with the typical "doesn't take shit from anyone" MC (if I remember correctly) and typical tropes for the female characters, then you've found the right show. Look, you and me both know, you didn't just randomly stumble upon this show. You probably searched up "good harem shows to watch". If that's the case, this show will most likely satisfy any of those "harem cravings" you get after watching bigger harem shows ...

A boy named nomura enters into this school ruled by 'feminism".
All boys in the school are turned into girls(then what the hell is even the point of a boy enrolling into the school).
This guy nomura just went to a school and here he meets and fights the 5 swords or whatever and why is that? Well.....JUST BECAUSE OUR MC DOESN'T LIKE THE SCHOOL RULES.
Yep, that's it that is the plot.
The character design is ok
The fights are pretty much our typical mc struggling and fighting the so called 5 swords(Who obviously lose).
His so called yandere friend nearly kills him why well cause he hung out with ...
