[[caption-width-right:350:Our Hero]]

Transfer student Manabizaki Kyou is a [[GeniusDitz swot]], a person who spends too much time studying. His dream is to attend Tokyo University and then build a UFO! He will soon discover, however, that the high school he's transferred into, which was once very prestigious, has taken in delinquents from the surrounding schools. Now it is full of violence and gang fights.

Luckily, [[BadassBookworm Manabizaki]] has a surprising skill at fighting, particularly when he's defending the peace of his study area. Through this strength he'll find his new friends, a weak boy called Iwashida Touji and a legendary {{delinquent}} [[ActionGirl girl]], [[LoveInterests Hasuno Nene]], who makes him feel things that, for the first time in his life, [[{{Tsundere}} he]] [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove can't explain]]...

Don't get confused with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SWOT_analysis SWOT analysis]]!!
!!This manga provides examples of:

* ActionGirl: Hasuno Nene
* AfterTheEnd: Not only the school but outside looks like a scene from Manga/{{Akira}}, [[SomethingCompletelyDifferent then they walk into a]] MaidCafe...
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Manabizaki [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/swot/v01/c001/46.html big time]]. He fights by [[GoodWithNumbers running]] [[IfMyCalculationsAreCorrect probability simulations]] of what the opponent's next move is going to be.
** According to Nene that means that he is not strong at all. For whatever reason...
*** That would suggest that instead of having superior physical strength, he's WeakButSkilled (for a given definition of Weak, anyway...)
* BadassBookworm: Do not interrupt Manabizaki when he's reading a book, or he'll kick your ass.
* BerserkButton: Manabizaki has a few: call him stupid, hit his head, or interrupt his study time.
* BigDamnHeroes: Manabizaki has had a few of these.
* BlatantLies: Skeleton High school claims to have an 80% acceptance rate to Tokyo University. Manabizaki was not pleased when he [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/swot/v01/c001/13.html discovered the lie.]] [[spoiler:Then it was revealed this was a GambitRoulette by the principal to get a powerful student to control the delinquents.]]
* BlindWithoutEm: Manabizaki takes a test with broken glasses and gets an 8 on it...
** During chapter 9, though, he fights completely without glasses.
* BloodKnight: Koumori Chikage
** Yamikura, "The Fighting Maniac"
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Manabizaki is a relatively mild example, but his life goal is to make a flying saucer [[note]]changed from the original one-shot where his dream was the more down-to-earth goal of working for NASA[[/note]] and visit other planets. See also CrazyPrepared for what he did in relation to said goal.
* CrazyPrepared: Manabizaki learned to fight just in case he met hostile aliens while exploring the galaxy with his UFO...
* CrouchingScholarHiddenBadass: Manabizaki
* CurbStompBattle: All but one of Manabizaki's fights so far.
* CutShort: Due to the cancellation of the manga, the series ends rather abruptly at chapter 20.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: In true {{shonen}} fighting {{manga}} fashion, Manabizaki allies up with the group he just defeated.
* {{Determinator}}: [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/swot/v01/c002/17.html Iwashida]] once he decides to [[TiredOfRunning stop running]].
* DisproportionateRetribution: Go ahead, interrupt Manabizaki's study time. I dare you.
* {{Fanservice}}: Hasuno in a maid outfit. Nuff said.
* FightMagnet: Manabizaki, thanks to his {{berserk button}}s and his tendency to insult everyone.
* FlechetteStorm: [[http://www.mangareader.net/1724-57299-13/swot/chapter-9.html Manabizaki executes one with pencils.]]
* FoeTossingCharge: Manabizaki on his way to save Hasuno from Koumori.
* GeniusDitz: Manabizaki, [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/swot/v01/c001/14.html here]].
* HairTriggerTemper: Guess who.
* HardHead: Manabizaki gets hit in the head with a steel pipe, it annoys him at best.
* HighSchool
* HospitalHottie: Iwashida's older sister is a hot nurse. Many of the nurses in the hospital she works in are equally hot.
* HotBlooded: Manabizaki
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Did he just punch a guy with a ''book''?
* IndirectKiss: Manabizaki is excited about finishing the unfinished juice can Hasuno offered to him. He is ''pissed'' when it gets spilled before he can take a sip.
* InsufferableGenius: A mild case but Manabizaki is very, ''very'' proud of how smart he is.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Manabizaki. Although he'll [[{{Tsundere}} vehemently deny the heart of gold part]].
* KiAttacks: Revolving around Resolve and Reverse Resolve.
* LoveTriangle: Chapter 12 shows that Okiku has developed feelings for Manabizaki, who is oblivious and interested in Hasuno. Hasuno herself has noticed Okiku's feelings for him and seems a bit uncomfortable about them.
* {{Meido}}: Okiku becomes one after she's saved from Toudou. Also, there are tons of maids at Kirishima's "Best Place".
* MrExposition: Iwashida
* ResignationsNotAccepted: Either the Bats policy is this, or Koumori is just a {{blood knight}}.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Iwashida and Manabizaki. The trope is played with in that the "manly man" was initially dismissed as a weak, defenseless nerd.
* SeriousBusiness: For Manabizaki, studying is serious business. Deadly serious.
* ShipperOnDeck: Iwashida can't resist teasing Manabizaki about his obvious crush on Hasuno.
* ShoutOut: To FistOfTheNorthStar, [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/swot/v01/c005/15.html here]]
* ThrowTheBookAtThem: Books are Manabizaki's {{weapon of choice}}; he uses them as both sword and shield.
* TiredOfRunning: Iwashida, who ran so much before he met Manabizaki that he was known as [[EmbarrassingNickname Coward]]. He decided to fight after meeting Manabizaki, and well, he didn't [[{{Determinator}} go down]]...
* {{Tsundere}}: Manabizaki is a rare male example. He didn't come save you, he's just on his way to the test and the bad guys got in the way...
* UnderestimatingBadassery: Everyone to Manabizaki at the start.
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: Manabizaki is confused by this concept of love.
* WorldOfBadass: Okay, School Of Badass. However, given the insanely high number of ridiculously powerful people seen so far, it wouldn't be a surprise at all if the rest of Manabizaki's neighborhood is similarly predisposed.
** Even the streets. Good god, the shopping district looks like hell.
