The story opens with her and 2 friends going shopping for hair growth solution, when a new mission comes up. Her master, who taught her everything she knew 3 years back, was hired as the target's bodyguard. The two must fight, but what will the outcome be? Read on!

* BattleStrip: The TournamentArc has a few examples:
** [[spoiler:Hypnotized]] Araya [[FlungClothing throws off her school uniform]] shortly into the fight, [[DressedInLayers revealing]] a skimpier and frillier outfit.
** Padre Phantom enters the ring in a Baron Samedi-inspired outfit, then slips it off and fights wearing only trunks.
** Lingyu Bao enters the ring by doing a flip off of the school roof, [[ShirtlessScene slipping out of his jacket long the way]].
* BloodKnight: One might wonder why the prince aka Yomogi Shii choose to work as hitman for hire when his purpose in life is to protect Kanae.
* ButtMonkey: Cynthia, who can't win a fight without being hospitalized, gets regular beatings from what seems to be her best friend, was abused by her sister her whole life, is everyone's laughing stock [[RunningGag (cough*bald*cough)]] and is forced by her family to kill people as a job.

* LargeHam: Rin Gotou. This goes UpToEleven during the TournamentArc, when she becomes the official CombatCommentator.
