The all-girls boarding school Tenchi Academy isn't just known for its quality academics--it's also known for training the top sword fighters in the country. Students in the special "Sword Bearer" program compete in a school-wide battle known as the Star Stealing, striving to win both money and fame.

Enter Kurogane Hayate. With her sister Nagi recovering from a lingering injury, the spunky and cheerful Hayate must take her place at the Academy until Nagi is well enough to return. When Hayate learns of the mountain of debt her old orphanage, the Dandelion Garden, owes to Yakuza loan sharks, she decides to become a sword-bearer and win the Star Stealing.

There's just one problem... she needs a partner to compete and the one girl Hayate has her eye on wants nothing to do with her!

Preliminary (6/115 eps)
Let’s start with plot. When I heard that it consisted of an all-girls boarding school and a sword fighting tournament, it all sounded like an excuse for yuri and action scenes. Which is cool, I guess, but I wasn’t expecting much when I picked it up at the bookstore and seriously debated whether it was worth paying for.

It surpassed my expectations. The story hasn’t shown itself to be horribly complex or original yet, but it has its merits. It is completely littered with jokes and puns, and very enjoyable to read, and I’m not even a comedy sort of person. Oh, and yes, yuri ...
