Tokyo Butei High school—It was a special school where armed detectives, also known as "Butei" are being brought up. Tooyama Kinji is a sophomore student who has the unique body which activates a "super mode" when it was stimulated by "something." He tries to hide it to others in order to live a peaceful life. But trouble came to find him when he became a victim of a bombing incident, where he met the Butei high "Assault" department elite, Aria H. Kanzaki.

Preliminary (7/? eps)
GREAT MANGA. Even though there isnt much character development yet, the manga was hilarious. Basically the story is about a young man who has a power which turns him into a super human. However, it can only be turned on if Kinji (main character) gets sexually excited!

Hilarious, I highly recommend it :3

The story can be a little generic, although the setting is very interesting, albeit a tad outrageous. No major spoilers here, but the generic harem that's inevitably built up is made rather...uniquely.
I enjoy this series not for its generic characters, or the ridiculous plot devices, but the setting and character development that is relatively ...
