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!

Let me tell you a Story, a Story of a man that gets into a high school, just to find out that this school is ruled by "feminism". that school was once a female school. But then they decided to open it to male population. but guess what? the nation of "feminism" stroke down, and the whole school turned all their male students into females boys in order to make the girls feel "safe"

tl;dr: Not particularly strong in terms of plot or depth but has a good balance of cool and stylish moments as well as comedic and amusing moments with a likable cast of characters.

The anime is trying to do two things, be cool and be amusing. It's not trying to have a good plot or deep characters or anything like that. There's a good variety to how both of these are done though and there's a good balance of the two, so it works well in such a way there are a lot of fun and likable characters. For example, the various main characters have a read more

If I had to describe studio Silverlink in one word, that word would be ''mediocre''. They're perhaps the most "okay" studio working in the industry today and none of their shows I would consider being all that good, with the exception of a couple maybe, but, even then, those exceptions are still nothing all too remarkable. They always make shows that sound good on paper, and, when read, sound like they could be good shows, but they usually lack the creative talents and efforts to carry this through and their shows always just end up feeling either downright terrible or just "meh" for lack read more

Let me tell you all a story.. " once there was a delinquent boy.. who got expelled from school and had to join a new school which was being dominated by girls and they all wanted to straighten him up but ended up falling for him... THE END". Ever heard of something like this.. ya i know . So this pretty much sums up the entire anime and almost very other harem anime nowadays.This show here is nothing but a sorry excuse of a harem anime with almost no originality and is full of shitty cliches that would make no sense. You would rather read more
