Kenka Banchou Otome - Girl Beats Boys, Hinako Nakayama has spent all of her life being raised in state-run orphanages, without ever knowing her family. As she's about to enter high school, Hinako is approached by Hikaru, a boy who claims to be her twin brother.

According to Hikaru, Hikaru and Hinako are the children of the head of the powerful Onigashima yakuza family, and Hikaru wants Hinako to switches places with him at Shishiku Academy, an all-boys school overrun with the nation's toughest delinquents. Can Hinako save her brother, find romance, and become the new boss of the school?

I asked myself if this anime really deserves 10/10 before posting it, but the fact is I thoroughly enjoyed it - being an Otome fan, this anime has hit all the right buttons:

There were many themes with lots of potential that just went to waste.

Art: 4/10

The artstyle itself was ok - not bat yet not outstanding. Still my problem with it is that ...

In short: Entertaining, but don’t expect too much out of it nor attempt to try thinking too much about it.

Let me get this out of the way first: from an Entertainment point of view, it would probably get an 8, really. It’s lighthearted, it’s fun and if you don’t think too much about it, it’s really a must-watch for reverse harems/otome fans. I don’t think it’d be a waste of your time anyway, since it’s so short. What are you waiting for?

But since this aspect is what counts the least for me, let me get to the juice.

From an overall perspective, I seriously ...
