pretty good action/ecchi anime...
11 July 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

this is a decent anime, but it doesn't compare to some of the real gems around (eg. Berserk, Claymore, Basilisk)...still, its worth checking out if u into this sort of thing...

Kinji goes to a Butei(?) high school that specialises in training kids to be soldiers, and they have to carry a gun and knife all the time (just like the USA! sorry :)), anyway, Kinji doesn't want to be a Butei, and is planning to quit, then he meets Aria and she wants to be his partner. Kinji is not as adept at fighting as Aria, but whenever he gets excited his blood pressure rises and he goes into hysteria mode, making him much more competent. Someone is killing Butei students and Kinji and Aria team up to find and stop this killer...

not a whole lot of action, not particularly ecchi and a bit slapstick, i prefer anime a bit more adult oriented. However, it did have awesome animation, likable characters and was engaging enough to keep me watching all 12 episodes, so its better than average...
