Perpetually bored, Natsuo Ishidou has been physically adept for as long as she can remember. Her ability to almost instantly pick up any kind of sport has left her constantly searching for any kind of challenge. However, because she rarely finds anything difficult, she has developed a narcissistic and apathetic attitude toward everyone around her.

One day, Natsuo sees a fellow student trying to advertise a mixed martial arts club. When the girl, named Yuzuko Mawatari, targets Natsuo from the crowd and extends an invitation to her, she becomes irritated with her demeanor and accepts the request in an attempt to discover why Yuzuko seems to be so carefree.

But while Natsuo participates in the mixed martial arts club, people from her past still have a bone to pick with her. Can she deal with the consequences of her poor attitude while rising to the challenge of someone who may actually be stronger than her?

I just felt like writing down how this manga and I connected. it was like something out of a dream for me, the main character was the only character iv'e ever been able to totally empathize with. every thought she had I had every action she took I had taken reading this a year out of high school was like living threw high school again, and that alone was glorious. this manga got me back into manga and helped me find my self after having my life upended without this I probably would not be who I am today. I can truly say that Natsuo read more

A very enjoyable manga about a female high school student who is known to be great at everything that she does that she doesn't feel excited to do anything. However, that changes when she finds MMA which inspires her to move on and to actually work hard on something.

The lead is a bully/jerk who doesn't throw out any cliched lines about getting stronger for the sake of someone else. She simply wants a challenge, which makes her a unique lead character for this genre.

However, this manga ended way too short as is the curse with mangas like these. The story was good but needed read more

Spoilers Ahead:

Story: 6
Natsuo Ishida is a super talented girl who pissed off too many people because of her talent. Her brother, friends, and etc. She then gets destroyed by an annoying bitch, Yuzuko Mawatari, from a fight on the roof and then strives to defeat her in the future in a tournament. Problems in the story are sometimes really evident. Some of the action don't have anything to it rather than Natsuo being "talented" except for her last loss that was complete bullshit. The main goal for the mc is just to fight the annoying girl that is Mawatari. Then there is the problems with read more

I love martial arts. It's in my blood. When I first read Teppuu, I did not know what to expect. Some crappy story about a person "wanting to get stronger"? Some lame quotes like, "I want to protect my friends, and I want to get stronger!" (Valiant, but cliche')

Teppu is about a girl. A girl named Ishido, Natsuo. It just so happens Natsuo is an ace at every sport, and rarely fails at what she does. But here's the trick; Natsuo is a jerk and a bully and every kind of person you DO NOT want to have as your friend. Which read more
