Busou Shoujo Machiavellianism Fanservice Review Episode 1

Imagine a CO-ED school where the women are entitled to carry their own weapons, and the rights of the men are severely undermined. Fun, right?

Here’s the synopsis of this series from MyAnimeList, which itself was taken from Batoto and edited:

The Private Aichi Symbiosis Academy was originally a high school for high-class girls. When it became co-ed, the girls, out of fear, asked to be permitted to bring weapons to school. When that was enforced, a five-member vigilante corps-like organization called the “Supreme Five Swords” was also formed.

After many generations, the five swords eventually became a group which corrected problematic students, and the academy started proactively accepting such students in order to correct them.

Nomura Fudou was sent to this school after being part of a huge brawl. What will he do when the only options he has after enrolling are being expelled from that school or being corrected the way the rest of the male students there were…by being forced to dress and act like a girl!

In this episode, the MC clashes with Rin Onigawara, a member of the Supreme Five Swords, who also happens to share the same homeroom as him. Time for some alumni bonding time!

To quickly introduce the characters centered on in this episode…

Not all first days of school end well. In this case, the MC not only receives some wounds to the face as well as other parts of the body, but (accidentally) receives a kiss as well. All in all, a pretty splendid start.

Thanks to ScissorMeTimbers for the caps and stitches. Much appreciated.
