Three Episode Impression
This is rough. It is that odd like 8-9 minutes long anime, so it feels longer than a short, but always leaves you unsatisfied since it is not a full 22 minutes. That being said, the show does have one decently redeeming quality, it laughs in the face of gender. Considering how open Japan used to be with gender, and still somewhat is, the show depicts Hinako and Hikaru swapping places, albeit with a little resistance, and shows a rather smooth transition. A lot of social issues are on the table for discussion right now in Japan, and while Japan is very slow to take action, this is a good step in the right direction. Enjoy Kenka Banchou Otome for the social aspects and less the feeble storyline.
Characters & Voice Actors List
Voice Actor: Hibiku Yamamura
Has lived in an orphanage for as long as she can remember and, under the institution’s policy, has learnt a variety of hand-to-hand fighting techniques since she was young. She ends up forced to attend Shishiku Private Academy, the worst school in the district that’s full of delinquents, by her older twin brother in order to take his place.
Voice Actor: KENN
As soon as he enrolled in the school, he tried to become the ruler delinquent in the class, but was quickly beaten down by the protagonist. Ever since then he has respected the protagonist and becomes best friends with her. A delinquent that doesn’t put on a front and gets on well with everyone, values spiritual bonds, and is always willing to help without asking for anything back. However, he’s also an idiot who doesn’t realise the protagonist is a girl, despite spending the most time with her.
Voice Actor: Shouta Aoi
From the next class over to the protagonist and the strongest in the year. Using Jujitsu, he ignores any difference in strength when he fights. He feels a sense of camaraderie with the protagonist, who is even smaller than him, and keeps an eye on her. He hates women because he believes the stereotype that women are weak, and would never believe in his wildest dreams that the protagonist is actually a girl.
Voice Actor: Yoshimasa Hosoya
A second-year delinquent, said to be the strongest student for two years running. However, that’s just those around him making a fuss - he himself doesn’t have any interest in fighting to become number one. He doesn’t talk much, hates hanging out with people, and is always alone.
Voice Actor: Tetsuya Kakihara
A second-year delinquent who is said to be just as strong as Kira. When he was in middle school, he was strong enough to be the boss of the whole school, but he suddenly transformed into an idol. He’s always wandering about with a smile on his face, however a part of him won’t let other people see past what’s on the surface.
Voice Actor: Tomoaki Maeno
Hikaru’s older half-brother from a different mother, but very little is known about him. He’s lived apart from Hikaru since he was little, and Hikaru is prejudiced against him. Following the Onigashima family way, he enrolled in Shishiku Academy and became a legend who took over the whole school in less than a month.
