''Hanjuku Joshi'' begins with the readers being introduced to first year highschool student Yae, who is naturally and intuitively feminine, something she despises in herself. We're then introduced to her classmate Chitose, a naturally tomboyish girl whom Yae is both admiring and jealous of.

Chitose quickly sets her sights on Yae and tries to become close to Yae, even on occasion flirting with her. Chitose eventually wins Yae over and the two become close friends. However, their UnresolvedSexualTension continues to build and build before finally culminating in a kiss... Both of them are confused by this. What happens next for the pair? Is the love between them real?

''Hanjuku Joshi'' is an explicit GirlsLove {{manga}} by AkikoMorishima. It debuted in ''YuriHimeWildrose'' and will be released digitally in English by [=JManga=]. The erotic fare is there in the {{manga}} though it's used to analyze the relationships of the members involved. This work is also notable for comparing and contrasting legitimate romantic relationships between girls to the more typical to the Japanese mindset, [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship Class S]] style relationships.

----
!!''Hanjuku Joshi'' contains examples of:

* ACupAngst: Chitose, not as angry about her lack of endowments as some examples but she often comments on being jealous of Yae's bust.
* BetaCouple: [[spoiler:Ran and Mari]]
* BiTheWay: Played with, both Mari and Ran admit to enjoying sex with men but when it comes to actual love they can only be with women.
* {{Bifauxnen}}: Chitose
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: While jogging, Chitose asks Ran a bunch of innocent jogging-related questions, and then concludes with [[spoiler: "Does Sensei insert her finger when doing lecherous acts with girls?"]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Ran carelessly answers "Yes!" before she can process what the question is.]]
* CaughtWithYourPantsDown: Yae and Chitose walk in on [[spoiler: Ran and Mari]] having sex in the library.
** Yae and Chitose themselves fall victim later on, when Ran bursts in on them after hearing strange sounds in their dorm room. She chides them for leaving the door unlocked.
* ChristmasCake: Ran angsts about this in a later chapter.
* ClassRepresentative: Chitose and Yae although with personalities not stereotypical of this trope.
* ClosetKey: [[spoiler: Ran is Mari's]]
* CloseUpOnHead:
** Mari and Ran are discussing Yae and Chitose. The camera zooms out, revealing that [[spoiler:they're in bed, and, between the two of them, they're wearing precisely one item of clothing -- unless you count the fuzzy handcuffs on Ran]].
** Mari is holding an English study guide, and Yae is tearfully telling her about her fight with Chitose....in a bubble bath. Together. Yae isn't sure how this happened.
* ContrivedCoincidence: Two different {{First Love}}s show up moments after someone mentions them.
* DCupDistress: Yae wears an uncomfortably small bra in a fruitless attempt to make her breasts look smaller.
* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnFemale: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] as the scenes never involve rape even if it sometimes looks like the {{manga}} might be going there.
** Chitose pushes Yae into a bathroom stall, orders her to take off her shirt and gropes her...because she was concerned her bra didn't fit. (Chitose figured Yae would've refused if she'd just, you know, ''asked''.)
** Chitose does force herself on Yae on one occasion, but stops as soon as she realizes Yae really ''does'' mean "No".
** On the other hand, [[spoiler:Mari takes advantage of Ran when she's emotionally vulnerable. ''Twice.'' She feels guilty about it, but that doesn't stop her. Ran doesn't seem to mind.]]
* ElevatorSchool
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Chitose
* FirstNameBasis: Chitose encourages Yae to call her by her given rather than her family name.
** Mari encourages Ran to do the same thing when they're outside school. Ran is a bit flustered but doesn't actually resist.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: In chapter 2, Mari suddenly wakes up when Chitose yells out [[spoiler:Ran's name]], and even repeats it to herself.
* [[RedStringOfFate Fuzzy Handcuffs Of Fate]]
* GagBoobs: Yae's an ''F-cup''. This fact does not often go unnoticed.
* {{Gayngst}}: Yae and Chitose both have slight bouts of this [[spoiler: but their teacher, Ran suffers this the most.]]
* {{Genki Girl}}: Shiori.
* GirlishPigtails: Yae as indicative of her femininity.
* HeartSymbol: Shiori radiates hearts when in maximum LesYay mode.
* HeroicBSOD: Mari finds Ran sitting in a ThousandYardStare [[spoiler:after being told that her best friend Shiori, who she's been [[IncompatibleOrientation secretly in love with for years]], is getting married. She snaps out of it quickly, though.]]
* IDidntMeanToTurnYouOn: In the early chapters, Chitose has a habit of unwittingly doing this to Yae.
* {{Instant Fan Club}}: Chitose has a lot of fangirls.
* IntertwinedFingers: And the first one was [[InvokedTrope invoked]] by Yae.
* LadykillerInLove: Mari is a genderflipped version when she falls for [[spoiler: Ran]]
* LingerieScene
* LoveBubbles
* LoveHotels: Several of them, though there are just as many sex scenes at the school or home.
* LuminescentBlush: Yae is the most prone to this.
* {{Meganekko}}: Ran
* NewOldFlame: Yae's junior high friend and [[IncompatibleOrientation unrequited crush]] Youko, who pops into the story to unwittingly stir up old angst.
* {{No Nudity Taboo}}: Chitose undresses in front of her class on the second page. Her entire family is equally blase about being half-naked, at least around each other.
** Yae's influence eventually makes Chitose herself (a little) more self-conscious, to the shock of her classmates.
* NoPeriodsPeriod: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] twice. Chitose and Yae each have a plot-relevant period during the series.
* OneGenderSchool:
* PerpetualMolt: Seen on the chapter openings.
* PleasePutSomeClothesOn: Yae saying this to Chitose becomes a RunningGag.
* ReallyGetsAround: Mari, though it's revealed that her promiscuity stems from [[spoiler: not realizing that she's gay.]]
* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]], played straight with some of the background characters, but ultimately [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] with the two main couples.
* SayItWithHearts
* SchoolgirlLesbians
* SecondLove: [[spoiler:Yae and Ran have both been scarred by IncompatibleOrientation in the past. Even Chitose has joked about a girl she had a crush on in kindergarten (who reminds her of Yae). Mari is the only one who doesn't have a history, except for some shallow relationships with boys.]]
* SecretRelationship
* {{Seme}} and {{Uke}}: Played with, [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]], but ultimately [[SubvertedTrope subverted]].
* SexAsRiteOfPassage: The "sex equals adulthood" aspect of this trope gets discussed and ultimately subverted. Mari tries to deliberately invoke it, thinking that having sex with boys would "make her a woman," but isn't pleased with the results. Yae also lampshades and subverts it after her and Chitose's first time: "I thought if I did {{ecchi}} things, I'd become an adult. But it seems I've somehow returned to being a child."
* ShowerOfLove
* SkinshipGrope: Yae is a victim -- and doesn't like it at ''all''.
