Tachikawa Tetsuya is a freshman at a new high school and he wants to become a great archer, like his late grandfather, Fudou.

One day, a new transfer student joins his class. In a surprise to everyone, it is a cute girl and not a guy like the rumors were saying... The name is Sasaki Gonzaburou, and... "she"... or maybe "he"... well, this person has some "little" secrets.

This basically sums it up: It's a TRAP! XD

Joking aside, this anime is one of those sexually awkward types. And no, I'm not talking about the ecchi kind. The premise is supposedly about archery but that is quickly overshadowed by the fact that the cute looking girl you see in the picture is actually a cross-dressing boy who falls for another boy.

If you can get past all that (which I doubt, especially if you are a straight guy) and focus on the story, the plot in the anime is pretty straight-forward. You get the idealistic boy striving to be the best, the "damsel" who read more

Kaichuu, what to say about it. It's short, it's cliched, it's nearly without any actual sort of plot, but hell I enjoyed it anyway. For the few minutes it took to watch this I was pretty entertained.

As far as the story goes there really isn't much to say. The length allows no room for any sort of actually engaging story. It is basically just there to fascilitate the jokes and as an excuse to have a cute guy in a skirt. They try and set up the story with an opening bit of narration talking about some archery prodigy who disappeared from the archery world. read more

This series is filled with archery references but is not a serious sports anime. Although it promotes the ideals of sporting, it is in fact a lot more about a sexually awkward / gender confused pretty girl, running around in a revealing uniform. It has a lot of coming-of-age social drama in it but it never gets too serious. It has a story, which like in all sport series is simple and ends with someone getting their hopes shattered. And it is a story where everything is possible if you want it really bad. Training in order to get better has nothing to do with read more

Yea, this is a really short series that somewhat funny but at the same time makes you kind of sit there wondering WTF Mate. Characters are not well developed for a reason (2 episodes 4 min each) and the main character makes me a bit off balance. Regardless if you have 10 min to spare watch it but do not be expecting much. There is archery but that didn't add any masculinity to the anime at all. For starting out people looking for an anime to watch, don't watch this, for people who love anime and love to claw their eyes out, read more
