Goodreads Synopsis:

Can high school delinquent Mafuyu clean up her act and still kick some butt?!

Mafuyu is the no-nonsense, take-charge and hard-hitting leader of her high school gang. But when she gets expelled for being a delinquent, her mother, fed up with her daughter’s wayward ways, sends Mafuyu to an isolated school far off in the country.


I almost wish that I had been following this series more closely. I do quite enjoy the humor here, and while there are too many characters to keep track of, I do enjoy the comedy and antics involved.
At the beginning of the volume, there's a chapter involving crossdressing, in which one guy pretends to be a girl and has to reject a guy that confessed to “her”, and Mafuyu gets to pretend to be “her” boyfriend. There are a lot of misunderstandings and silly competitions involved.
After that, there's an impostor Super Bun running around campus and causing havoc, stealing stuff. Mafuyu is confused by it, but also very freaked out at having so many of her masks all over the place. I do quite enjoy all of the comedy involved, misunderstandings and the confusion that ensues.
This series is quite fun, and I do enjoy reading it. I look forward to seeing who this fake super bun is in the next one.

A review copy was provided by the publisher, VIZ Media, for an honest review. Thank you so, so much!
