Yuu Mikoshima enters the famous St. Millefeuille All-Girl High School with high expectations of it... and finds much more than she was prepared for. First off, Nagi, a [[GenkiGirl cheerful classmate]] assigned to show her the school, attempts (admittedly) to [[SchoolgirlLesbians seduce her]], culminating in a French kiss. Next thing she knows, the school is being attacked by a three-ton monster that is after its stockpile of [[SeriousBusiness sugar]]. Somehow, Yuu is able to unleash a devastating power attack and knock it out and ends up kissing an [[{{Tsundere}} angry girl]] named Mariya to combine their powers and kill the monster for good.

It turns out, St. Millefeuille is a [[MilitarySchool special academy]] for training {{Magitek}} witches who can fight Formiks, monsters like the one Yuu defeated. Said monsters destroyed 80% of the world's sugar supply some 10 years ago and are still out for the rest. To fight them, each St. Millefeuille student has a special power and Yuu's is to [[MegaManning absorb the powers of others]] ''[[IntimateHealing through kissing]]'', just like she did with Nagi and Mariya, with whom she eventually gets [[PowerTrio teamed up]]. Thus, her ordinary school life begins.

''OtomeKikanGretel'' is an on-going GirlsLove {{manga}} by Kaoru Sudou, serialized in the {{Seinen}} magazine ''ComicYuriHimeS''. Definitely approved for every YuriFan out there but unfortunately, it seems to have become an OrphanedSeries by now.

* BlankWhiteEyes: Yuu often gets this look when Nagi tries to seduce or flirt with her.
* BoobsOfSteel: One of Nagi's powers is SuperStrength so guess who has the biggest chest?
* BreakingTheFourthWall: "Is this what's commonly known as an EventFlag?" (Complete with options!)
--> 1) I'd be happy to go at it right away, too ♥
--> 2) Sorry, I'm not interested in that sort of thing.
--> 3) Eh!? Y-you're jokin...right?
* BugWar: Many characters refer to Formiks as "insects".

* [[CastFullOfGay Cast Full Of Lesbian]]: ''Every'' character is a girl who likes girls.
* CatGirl: Makoto cosplays as a catgirl maid for her sister.
* DatingSim: Parodied, as some characters start seeing "event flags" at critical moments or mentioning filling up meters and maxing out gauges.
* DoubleEntendre: "Were you done in by a drowsy Nagi's gigantic AUBE!?" (Combines the above BoobsOfSteel, as well as the StockSuperPowers below)
** JustifiedTrope. One of the omakes explains that once, Nagi slept without her limiter rings, and took to hug Mariya in her sleep. Mariya lost 3 ribs to that sweet "expression of love".
* DudeShesLikeInAComa: Nagi does this to Yuu after Yuu faints from Nagi's [[strike:flirting]] sexual harassment.
* ElegantGothicLolita: Makoto, who is also a TokenMiniMoe.
* EmotionlessGirl: Hotobe.
* EventFlag: Nagi outright comes on to Yuu, asking if she wants more than just to kiss (see BreakingTheFourthWall). She [[TakeAThirdOption took a fourth option]] and did nothing. Yet, at least.
* FamousAncestor: Yuu's mother Aya was a hero of the Sugarless Valentine, the first conflict with Formiks when they ate most of the world's sugar.
* FanService: Where do we begin? Suffices to say every new chapter is {{ecchi}}er than the last.

* GenkiGirl: Nagi, though there've been some hints towards a [[BrokenBird tragic backstory]], too.

* HotSpringsEpisode: Two out of six chapters so far. Long live hot springs!!
* InnocentInnuendo: The pudding making scene, with added VisualInnuendo to boot.
* JizzedInMyPants: Yuu is afraid, that the female version of this trope may happen to her in mid-battle, since the power-reload is done via kiss.
* KillItWithFire: Some Formiks are particularly vulnerable to fire (it's implied that fire was a weakness of that particular Formik in the first chapters).
* {{Lolicon}}: The teacher Hikaru Akatsuki has a complex for her TokenMiniMoe [[BrotherSisterIncest sister]] Makoto.

* LovableSexManiac: Nagi.

* MilitarySchool: While the local regulations are not at all strict, St. Millefeuille ''is'' a classified government academy for training witches to counter the global Formiks threat.
* MissionControl: Makoto. At least when she's not spending "quality time" with her big sister.
* MsFanservice: Nagi, and in [[{{Ecchi}} this manga]], that's really saying something.
* NoseBleed: Nagi provokes this reaction from Yuu a lot with Nagi insisting that it's "normal for a healthy young girl".
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Yuu.
* OrphanedSeries
* PantyShot. Oh, boy...
* PlayingWithFire: Mariya's and Tsukasa's power.

* ThePowerOfLove: It's ''[[http://www.manga365.com/m/Gretel/4/14/ very]]'' [[http://www.manga365.com/m/Gretel/4/15/ heavily]] [[http://www.manga365.com/m/Gretel/4/16/ implied]] that ThereIsOnlyOneBed for a ''reason''.

-->"Chop ♥"

* SeriousBusiness: Sugar and sweets in general, since Formiks ate most of the world's sugar some ten years ago. But ''especially'' pudding for Mariya.
* [[BrotherSisterIncest Sister Sister Incest]]: Hikaru likes her little sister, Makoto, as shown in the {{Lolicon}} quote [[http://www.manga365.com/m/Gretel/4/3/ above]].
* ShoutOut: One of Tsukasa's attacks is called "Literature/{{Fahrenheit 451}}".

--> "[[http://www.manga365.com/m/Gretel/2/31/ kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa]]"
* StockSuperpowers: AUBE ([[GratuitousEnglish "Appearance of Unlimited Bio]] [[strike: [[GratuitousEnglish Energy]]]] [[InsistentTerminology Enaergy")]] is equivalent to witchcraft in the setting.
* SuperheroSchool: Technically a WizardingSchool but in effect much closer to the former.
* SuperStrength: Nagi's and, by extention, Yuu's AUBE.
* SweetTooth: All girls in the story have one (and for a reason) but Mariya is particularly bad at controlling it.
* ThereIsOnlyOneBed: Nagi, Yuu, and Mariya share a bed in their dorm and nobody bats an eyelid. Damn, that's one awesome school...
