'''''Girls Bravo''''' is a {{Shonen}} {{Manga}} series written and illustrated by Mario Kaneda and serialized from 2000 to 2005 in Shōnen Ace by Kadokawa Shoten. The series was made into an anime in 2004, with a second season made in 2005. There are 24 episodes total. It also inspired a VisualNovel.

Yukinari Sasaki fears girls, having been teased and bullied by them to the point that he breaks in hives upon mere contact with them. One day, having come home from school, his {{Tsundere}} neighbor Kirie Kojima kicks him into his bathtub, and he is transported to "Seiren", a mysterious world with a mostly female population. [[HilarityEnsues Much hilarity follows.]]

----
!!''Girls Bravo'' provides examples of:

* AccidentalPervert: Yukinari
* ADayInTheLimeLight: Episode 9 focuses largely on Lisa, and gives her some backstory on her magic use.
* AscendedExtra: Kosame makes far more appearances in the anime then in the manga.
* AllergicToLove
** Yukinari gets rashes whenever he is touched by a girl, as a result of bullying. Miharu apparently doesn't trigger this.
** Inverted with Fukuyama, who's allergic to men, as is Yukina, which is the reason she wants to KillThemAll.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Yukinari's been bullied by girls since he was a child.
* AmusingInjuries: In episode 3, after Kirie slams Fukuyama into the ground, his head is turned sideways for the next few scenes.
* AndIMustScream: At the end of one episode, Fukuyama's conscience is trapped in a wooden board. Subverted in that after screaming for his sister Lisa to help him, he sees an upside to his predicament as he can now see up the skirts of women that walk over him.
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: The ghost girl in episode 10 after she possesses Kirie and hugs Yukinari.
* AttractiveBentGender: Yukinari is forced to dress up as a girl in order to host a gaming tournament. His disguise is so convincing even the local pervert Fukuyama mistakes him for a pretty girl, [[UnsettlingGenderReveal which makes the metaphorical bridge all too heavy for Fukuyama]]. Yukinari also cross-dresses on numerous occasions in the manga.
* BareYourMidriff: [[StupidSexyFlanders Dammit Fukuyama]].
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe:
** Yukinari falls for Miharu largely because she's the first girl able to touch him without setting off his reaction. And unlike almost every other girl, she genuinely treats him nicely.
** Yukina falls for Yukinari because he helped her overcome her affliction of developing rashes when touched by boys.
* BerserkButton: Kirie is apparently a really nice person unless one of two things happen: 1) somebody hurts one of the boys she likes; and 2) seeing the boy in question.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Tomoka and Fukuyama develop this sort of relationship and she by the end she is the only character to refer to him by his given name, Kazuharu.
* BigEater: Miharu. Handwaved in the manga, in that anyone from Seiren living on Earth full-time apparently requires vast amounts of energy. (It's less of an issue for Koyomi and Tomoka because they make regular trips home.)
* {{Bishonen}}: Fukuyama and Yukinari.
* BizarroUniverse: The world on the other side of the magic mirror in Chapter 16 of the manga.
* BorrowedCatchphrase: In episode 9, Tomoka takes over Kirie's OnceAnEpisode catchphrase of "go (x)... in hell!" (in this case, "Go do it... in hell!". In episode 17, Yukinari also borrows it while battling Fukuyama in a video game.
* BlackComedyRape
** Kosame sexually assaulting Kirie in the anime.
** Also the reason why Fukuyama never gets arrested (that and ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney).
* BlandNameProduct: Yukinari owns a [[{{Creator/Sony}} Somy]] tv, as seen in episode 9.
* BlushSticker: The female characters have these from time to time.
* BrattyHalfPint: Tomoka
* ButtMonkey
** Yukinari and Fukuyama are constantly beat up and abused by Kirie and to a lesser extent the other girls beside Miharu, and they both have allergic reactions to members of a certain gender.
** Kirie herself sometimes becomes one when she is around a PsychoLesbian.
** The timid, male-phobic Koyomi gets molested and abused to a disturbing extent (mostly by Fukuyama).
* CasanovaWannabe: Kazuharu Fukuyama. He has a habit of feeling up women whenever he so much as talks to them, and he has the resources to have a mansion with such features as central air in the flooring to blow up skirts, and an elevator that takes women's measurements.
** Subverted with the fact that he's a Casanova to any women besides the main characters. He's usually seen surrounded by women when he's not trying to feel up Miharu or Kirie.
* CatSmile: Lisa displays one in episode 10.
* CelebrityParadox: The game expo episode, featuring Creator/ChiwaSaito, MamikoNoto, and AyakoKawasumi, who voice Kirie, Yukinari, and Miharu, respectively. [[TalkingToHimself Talking to Herself]] ensues in the case of Noto.
* CensorSteam: In copious amounts. Quasi-TropeNamer. Removed in the DVD release.
* ChekhovsGun: Remember Yukinari's being dressed as a girl early on? [[spoiler:Not only does he accidentally knock the big bad down, his costume even down to the hair color and fake name he uses is foreshadowing her.]]
* ChewToy
** Yukinari on levels that rival [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Homer]].
** Other contenders for this title are [[TooKinkyToTorture Fukuyama]] and Kirie; those two are, considering their actions, certainly the most enjoyable to watch squirm.
* ChickMagnet: Yukinari. By the end of the series he has four girls after him. Given that he's allergic to all women other than Miharu, this probably counts as BlessedWithSuck.
* ChivalrousPervert: Fukuyama, while he starts off as a mere HandsomeLech, eventually manages to achieve something approaching this by the end of the series.
* ClingyJealousGirl
** Lisa and Yukina over Yukinari. Kirie and Miharu are more subtle about their affections towards Yukinari.
** Kirie also acts this way to Fukuyama, even attacking him one time after some of his female admirers rescued him from drowning.
* CharacterDevelopment: By the time the second season rolls around, Kirie becomes considerably nicer to Yukinari and actually uses her fist on [[ChivalrousPervert Fukuyama]], someone who really deserves a beating. Also, Fukuyama eventually develops some vaguely redeeming qualities, and his constant sexual harassment starts getting [[CrossesTheLineTwice played more for laughs]].
* ClothingDamage
* ConvenientlyClosePlanet: Earth takes up a large portion of Seiren's sky when it's not raining.
* CostumePorn: Mario Kaneda's manga and promotional artwork regularly show off the characters (the girls especially) in unbelievably beautiful and detailed outfits.
* CryCute: Kirie has already done this in the first episode.
* CurbStompBattle: In episode 11, Fukuyama delivers one to Kirie in a ping pong battle. Then Koyomi does one to him, although he attempts to weaken her resolve by saying suggestive things to her, which works until Kirie tells Koyomi to imagine the balls as Fukuyama. Its enough to cause her to smack back every single ball he lobs at her, allowing her to win.
* CutenessProximity: When Ebi is transformed from a seal like creature into a little girl, almost all of the main characters find her incredibly adorable.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: Standard female attire at Mizuno high school.
* DarkMagicalGirl: Yukina; Lisa to an extent.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Tomoka does this to Lisa in episode 9 after learning more about the latter's backstory as well as being defeated by her with magic.
* DoesNotLikeMen: Fukuyama; Koyomi; Yukina
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Kirie is the main offender, considering she always hits Yukinari nearly every time she thinks he's a pervert. However, Kosame also counts, since she usually abuses Fukuyama at Lisa's behest.... including [[OffhandBackhand absentmindedly]] [[ToonPhysics shooting him in the face twice]], point-blank, while [[spoiler: snapping "wedding" photos of her and Yukinari.]] And all of this is PlayedForLaughs.
** YMMV if it's funny the way it is or not...
* DistaffCounterpart: [[spoiler:Yukina]]
* DoesNotLikeWomen: Yukinari himself, because until Miharu entered his life, women did NOT like him, '''to say the least'''.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The anime struggles to find the right tone for the first several episodes. Kirie is more psychotic and abusive than she later becomes, and some of Fukuyama's antics really come across as DudeNotFunny Things improve as the show gradually becomes more absurd and the abuse and harassment start [[CrossesTheLineTwice Crossing The Line Twice]].
* EffortlessAmazonianLift: Carrying around Yukinari doesn't seem to be a problem for Kosame. Must be because she's a hitwoman.
* EroticEating: Miharu does this in the anime.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Kirie
* {{Fanservice}}: The first piece of it is shown within the first 10 ''seconds'' of the first episode. Hell, the opening of the second season of the anime is a nude roll call of the female cast. The manga is [[NippleAndDimed less explicit]] in that there's [[HandOrObjectUnderwear no actual nudity]], but it's still pretty over-the-top.
* FreakyFridayFlip: In episode 12, Lisa's magic in the school swimming pool causes Yukinari and Fukuyama to switch bodies. Later, several other character's switch bodies, both intentionally and accidentally, when they realize what was causing the switching to take place.
* FriendlyEnemy: The Fukuyama siblings to the rest of the cast; how many other shows are there where the main antagonists are also DropInCharacter? Of course, sometimes they get a little too friendly.
* FuroScene
* GagBoobs: Kirie, again; also Miharu. But Miharu's older sister Maharu tends to [[IncrediblyLamePun overshadow them all]] whenever she shows up.
* {{Gainaxing}}: Miharu in episode 1 when running away from the mob of women with Yukinari.
* GenderBender: In one episode Lisa uses her magic to switch various people's bodies, although the body-switching gets out of hand (she didn't actually intend for gender-bending to occur).
* {{Gendercide}}: Despite the fact that Seiren is already 9/10th female, Yukina wants to kill all the remaining men to turn it into, in her words, a "women's only paradise".
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Subverted as both Kirie and Fukuyama attempt this on Yukinari after Miharu is kidnapped only to discover that when you have spent years beating up a man for fun, slapping him when he is severely depressed and crying will not do much. He is eventually snapped out of it by a speech on ManlyTears by The Boss.
* GirlWatching
* GirlyRun: Miharu in episode 1 when running from the mob of women chasing after Yukinari.
* TheGlomp: Kosame does one to Kirie in episode 3.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom
* GratuitousEnglish: In the Japanese dub during episode 5, when Fukuyama [[StealthHiBye shows up]] in Yukinari's house, he attempts to say "Good afternoon, everyone", but gets punched by a surprised Kirie before he can finish.
* GuiltyPleasure: Nonetheless, it still has its fans.
* HandsomeLech: Fukuyama
* HeroicSacrifice: Implied in episode 8 with Fukuyama, who dons a banana outfit and jumps into a crowd of Miharu clones, who explode on contact. The grocery store he saves builds a statue in his honor. Of course, StatusQuoIsGod and he's back to being the LovableSexManiac he usually is in the next episode.
* {{Hypocrite}}: In the first episode, Kirie once again prepares to pound Yukinari for walking in on her while she was in the shower. Yukinari points out that since he's so afraid of women, he has no reason to want to peep on her. Kirie then turns this around and accuses him of not liking her body, which only make her want to beat him up even MORE. Irritatingly typical {{Tsundere}} logic, you see.
* [[IllKillYou I'll Kill You!]]: Adding to the surrealism of this scene is the fact that this... um, character? says all of its lines in English, even in the original Japanese version. Which qualifies it as GratuitousEnglish.
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Other than Hayate, Kosame, and Lilica, most of Fukuyama's BodyguardBabes {{Ninja Maid}}s seems to be only trained to be as good as stormtroopers. The only good thing about them is that they give you some PantyShot.
* IncompatibleOrientation: Kirie is straight -- not that Kosame and Hijiri care.
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: Miharu has no qualms about showing up naked in front of Yukinari and once tried forcing him to bathe with her. At one point in the anime she even walks around [[NakedApron only wearing an apron]] because she thought Yukinari seeing her in something from his porn stash would make him happy. Also, the banana scene from the second episode. Good Lord.
* InstantCosplaySurprise: Fukuyama is a master at this, with Kirie as his favorite victim.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: Tomoka the youngest cast member, who clams to be the most mature person on the show, and Lisa's henchman Hayate who actually is the most mature strike up a strange friendship.
* IWarnedYou: When Maharu comes to Earth during the school fair, after Lisa predicts Tomoka and Koyomi's future will be crappy.
--> '''Lisa:''' I told them their future was crappy.
* KarmaHoudini: Kirie. She never gets called out on her behavior towards Yukinari, and nobody ever stops her when she's beating him up. However, she does get a few humiliation moments here and there, getting close to ButtMonkey status when Kosame is around.
* LethalChef: Kirie
* LivingWithTheVillain: It turns out that the kids homeroom teacher Hijiri is actually a spy for the series BigBad Yukina.
* LordErrorProne: Mamoru Machida, wanna-be superhero and self-proclaimed savior of the neighborhood; since he's oblivious to what's really going on, he's easily the most destructive of the minor characters.
* LovableSexManiac: Fukuyama. Kirie would disagree. Most of the women of Seiren wouldn't. Oddly enough, he's quite popular there, but YMMV.
* LoveAtFirstPunch: Both Kosame and Hijiri fall in madly love with Kirie after she attacks them, and by mad we mean in a PsychoLesbian BlackComedyRape kind of way.
* LoveDodecahedron: It's a harem anime, after all.
* LoverTugOfWar
* MaidCorps: They serve Fukuyama.
* MaleGaze
* MarshmallowHell: Maharu does this to Yukinari, which she insists he likes even though she punched him out.
* MegatonPunch: Frequently executed by Kirie against Fukuyama and Yukinari on occasion.
* MindControlEyes: Kirie displays these when the ghost girl possesses her in episode 10.
* NakedApron: Miharu wears one in episode 6, after reading about it in one of his magazines.
* NaughtyNurseOutfit: Season 1, episode 4; Fukuyama pretends to be sick and asks Kirie to wear a nurse outfit.
* NeverLiveItDown: [[{{in-universe}} Kirie]]. Most people tend to overlook the fact that she outgrows her abusive tendencies by the second season, behaves more like an actual friend to Yukinari and even has a heartwarming moment with Yukinari near the end of the series.
* NiceGuy: Yukinari, which makes all the UnprovokedPervertPayback he suffers much worse for him.
* NinjaMaid: Fukuyama has some at home, most notably one that was a former mercenary which he states is a trained killer (Lilica), and he doesn't appear to be exaggerating.
* {{Nosebleed}}: At times, also the result of getting punched (and kneed) so hard in the face. One episode used this to show that the guys were excited about what the girls were doing....
* OnceAnEpisode: Kirie beating up someone while telling them to "Go (x)... IN HELL!" (Example: Go look for her... IN HELL!". Though [[BorrowedCatchphrase Tomoka does this instead in one episode.]]
** Though not actually every episode, several begin with a [[{{Fanservice}} shower/bath scene. Even if it adds nothing to the story or character development.]]
* OnlySaneMan: Yukinari in most cases. In episode 12 he's the only one who doesn't get why everyone is clapping and crying for the aftermath of the tournament Kosame and Kirie (which pretty much amounted to sexual assault from Kosame).
* PantyShot: Pretty much a given in every episode.
* ParentalAbandonment: Despite almost all the major characters being school age the only parent talked about is Koyomi's DisappearedDad.
* PlayboyBunny: Subverted by Fukuyama.
* PreMortemOneLiner: Nonlethal variant; Kirie almost always yells "(Verb) IN HELL!!!" before unleashing a MegatonPunch on Fukuyama or (occasionally) Yukinari. Tomoka also starts doing this as well (much to Kirie's approval).
* ProductPlacement: Honda motorcycles among others.
* PsychoLesbian: Hijiri and Kosame for Kirie.
* SatelliteLoveInterest: Miharu; but she's still the one he displays the most signs of romance with, since she's always nice to him.
* SeriousBusiness: Mamoru asks a maid with military training for advice on cleaning.
** Mahjong.
* {{Shotacon}}: Miharu's older sister Maharu openly gropes and flirts with Yukinari.
* ShrinkingViolet
** Koyomi
** Yukinari is something of a male variation, especially around girls.
* SkinshipGrope: Kirie is often a victim of this, either through Fukuyama or Kosame.
* SpitTake: Yukinari does one in episode 2 when Miharu pops out of the shower.
* StalkerWithACrush: Lots. Lisa for Yukinari; Fukuyama for any pretty girl but mostly goes after Kirie or Koyomi; Kosame for Kirie, Hijiri was obsessed with Miharu since they were children but later switches over to Kirie, and by the end of the series Yukina for Yukinari.
* StealthHiBye: When Koyomi first arrives on Earth in Yukinari's house, Fukuyama appears in there out of nowhere while Kirie is talking to her.
* ThanksForTheMammaries: Fukuyama often deliberately does this as often as possible. With Yukinari, he's often forced to do it, and usually accidentally.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Kirie to Yukinari in the first episode (which [[EstablishingCharacterMoment established]] her as a JerkAss):
-->'''Kirie:''' You've ''always'' been a midget, a klutz and a blockhead. Not to mention slow in the head and snow on the uptake... I mean, I knew you were a hopelessly lame and worthless shell of a man, but to ''peep'' at me just because you can't get a girl...
* TheStoic: Hayate (except when someone asks him to marry him), Kosame (when she isn't around Kirie), and Lilica (unless told that Fukuyama has friends).
* StupidSexyFlanders
** Fukuyama, when he was baring his midriff in one episode.
** Yukinari, when he was [[AttractiveBentGender dressed as a pretty girl]].
* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: When Yukinari confronts Yukina in TheGrandFinale, instead of fighting they have a heart-to-heart talk and he convinces her to not commit {{Gendercide}}. Unfortunately for him, it also turned her into a StalkerWithACrush.
* TooKinkyToTorture: Lisa, Kosame, and Fukuyama -- unfortunately for Yukinari, Kirie, and Koyomi.
** Fukuyama has actually been bothered by pain on three accessions, one, Kirie tied him out left him in an oil drum full of boiling water, two, he was hit by truck, and three, when Maharu [=KOed=] him with a kick to the face.
* TooHotForTV
* {{Tsundere}}: Kirie; for instance she shows concern for Yukinari and gives him her handkerchief to help him clean up after he was badly beaten, however she was the one who beat him because she walked in on Miharu changing in the living room. It is also heavily implied that she secretly likes Fukuyama.\\\
The first episode pretty much served as the best example. [[AccidentalPervert Yukinari accidentally walks in on Kirie in the bathroom when she's naked]] which results in her kneeing him in the face. He then goes through the process on how it was an accident and how, because of his symptom, wouldn't even want to see her naked. She attacks him regardless for ''not'' wanting to see her naked. The worst part? It's his own FREAKING BATHROOM. ''IN HIS OWN HOUSE''. '''''WHICH SHE DID NOT ASK TO USE'''''.
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: Kirie towards Yukinari. Not too surprising, as beating up your love interest to the point that they break out in rashes anytime you touch them tends to get you friend-zoned.
* UnprovokedPervertPayback: Yukinari is often subjected to this. Averted with Fukuyama, who often is deserving of any punishment he receives.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: Occurs between Fukuyama and Yukinari, when Fukuyama grabs Yukinari by the groin when he was dressed as a girl.
* UnwantedHarem: Three girls have feelings for Yukinari, one is a bully who has beaten him up almost every day for years, another is an insane {{Yandere}} DarkMagicalGirl who tries to abduct and rape him, the final one is a kind and sweet girl who does not set off his woman allergy, guess which one he returns his feelings for. Actually four if you include the ''BigBad'', another {{Yandere}} DarkMagicalGirl. In most other harem comedies, it'd have been the bully. Plus, we never get to know why there are so few males in Seiren...
* VillainousRescue: Lisa ends up having to save the main characters in episode 12 after one of her spells goes awry and summons a giant octopus.
* WaterfallPuke: Fukuyama after eating Kirie's cooking.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Yukina
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Kirie
* ZettaiRyouiki: Miharu in the manga as does in the anime. Lisa also wears them.
