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!

For example, the various main characters have a ...

Mixed Feelings
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 ...

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: Overall Section

if by this point you don't spot any red flags dancing around your mind, then you should stop reading (btw, if you are going to get salty, avoid my profile ...
