Along with this game, there exist an [=SNES/=]PlayStation fighting game sequel, an RPG sequel, and a related animé series. [[WidgetSeries Not surprisingly]], [[NoExportForYou none of them have been localized]].

The story depends on which version you play. In either, though, you end up playing as a magical girl who whacks all sorts of wacky monsters with her kendo staff. The gameplay is somewhat similar to that of the ''{{Valis}}'' series, but with a large serving of insanity.

* OwlBeDamned: This cartoonish owl boss can detach its head and birth chicks from the top of its head. And makes stereotypical owl puns.

!!!Gameplay tropes



* CoversAlwaysLie: Well, kinda. Yes, the game features a female protagonist. No, she's not the one who's prominently displayed on the left in the U.S. box art. That's actually the level 5 boss, who is an otherwise unimportant character.
* CutAndPasteTranslation: In the Japanese original version, the main character, named Mai, is asked by a spirit detective named Doro to help attack monsters. In the U.S. version, an American girl named Jo has gone to Japan to study kendo, and meets this weird green-skinned guy named Osaki "Bob" Yorimoto who is her kendo instructor, but she has to fight through the levels to get to school on time.
* EverythingsBetterWithBob: See that weird green-skinned kendo teacher guy? We're calling him Bob.
* EvilTwin: Not very evil and not particularly twin-like, but this is the first boss.



* HurricaneOfPuns: At least in the U.S. version, ''every level'' is followed by a punny comment from either Bob or Jo. Additionally, the bosses crack puns before fighting you.



* TennisBoss: Almost literally. One of the bosses literally tries to play tennis with these spiky bug things. How do you defeat her? [[spoiler:Play tennis with her, by swinging your sword to bat them back.]]
* TimedMission: You have to get to school on time, so the game features a time counter. You can stop time with clocks you can pick up, but that just stops time for your timed mission, rather than any enemies.
* UnderTheSea: The third level. Well, it's in a lake, but close enough. UnderwaterBossBattle included.

!!!Script, art, story, and setting tropes
* EverythingsBetterWithBob: See that weird green-skinned kendo teacher guy? We're calling him Bob.
* EvilTwin: Not very evil and not particularly twin-like, but this is the first boss.
* ExcusePlot: Comes with excuse justifications. Why do we have an American girl going to Japan to study Kendo? Because she likes Kendo! Why does she fight all these monsters? Because she has to get to school on time! Why does she have to fight all these monsters? Because that's her kendo training!
* HurricaneOfPuns: At least in the U.S. version, ''every level'' is followed by a punny comment from either Bob or Jo. Additionally, the bosses crack puns before fighting you.



* SexyPackaging: The U.S. box art featuring two attractive women about to swing weapons at each other is probably the result of the fact that the game features a female protagonist and that U.S. publishers at the time did not like using {{animesque}} art on covers, believing it to be marginalize their product to a niche audience.
* ShoutOut:
** The three boss fishes are named after the ThreeStooges.
** Some minor enemies in level 5 look like slimes from ''DragonQuest''.
