What happens when an all-girls' high school reigning tomboy finds out her school is about to be filled with boys!?

Hanabi Oozora is a rambunctious 16-year-old tomboy who comes to the rescue of her less assertive friends—sometimes in exchange for food. So what does she do when, all of a sudden, her all-girls' school is about to be integrated with an all-boys' school?!

She meets and falls in love—naturally—with one of the three most popular and handsome boys in the Student Council, Yasuaki Garaku! Unfortunately, Yasuaki doesn't care for girls...and when the girls' Student Council clashes head-on with the boys' Student Council, Hanabi steps in to become a member—hoping she'll change Yasuaki's mind!

“Lots of great stuff is out there, if you just find the guts to try.”

That’s how I met Hanabi Ozora she goes to an all girls private school and is known for being a psycho when it comes to the whole justice prevails thing.
Don’t worry she doesn’t go around killing people for vengeance. She only hurts them, ...

Mixed Feelings
Despite Shoujo being filled with alot of things I tend to hate - overtly-dependent heroines for one - I still seem to always come back to it, hoping for a change.
I definitely thought I found that in Happy Hustle High with the impractical tomboy character, Hanabi, but alas, I was wrong.

The art is wonderfully drawn and when they say bishounens, they mean bishounens. The story was okay, not too extraordinary, but a fun, and well-executed for the theme and setting, read. I enjoyed it quite alot until the very last volume, where Hanabi completely threw away her reserved tomboyish self and became a Yasu fangirl ...
