But with a new friend like Hayasaka-kun, and a homeroom teacher like Saeki Takaomi, who forces her and her new friend into the Disciplinary Club...

Will Mafuyu be able to live a girly-girl high school life!?... Or once again she will have to stand up and fight for her friends!?.

Need more love!


This series provides examples of:

  • Absurdly Powerful Student Council: The Enemies!
  • Action Girl: Mafuyu, Wakana and Nonoguchi.
  • Adorkable: Almost half the cast could qualify for this.
  • Affably Evil: The Sudent Council.
  • Art Shift: Komari, who shifts between her "blank-eyed doll" look and her more "realistic" look, which is closer to everyone else's art style.
  • Badass Adorable: Mafuyu, Nonoguchi and Ayabe are quite adorable and very badass.
  • Badass Bookworm: Hayasaka.
  • Badass Teacher: Takaomi Saeki.
  • Balanced Harem: Friendship is a much more important theme than romance, but as the guys' feelings deepen without a clear Love Interest on Mafuyu's part, this will be the eventual outcome.
  • Battle Butler: Yui Shinobu wants to serve as Miyabi Hanabusa's personal ninja...
    • Wakana could count too in a way, since she considers herself to be Hanabusa's bodyguard.
  • Beauty Mark: Both Kangawa and Ayaben have one.
  • Becoming the Mask: Shinobu faced this problem as he infiltrated the Disciplinary Club. When he's finally asked to betray them, he ends up realising he wants to stay.
  • The Bet: Takaomi bets 5 years of salary that he can double the number of applicants to Midori ga Oka within 3 years. The real reason and reward for the bet between Takaomi and the principal are not revealed until volume 7.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: All the good guys are side-splittingly hilarious idiots. Most are also former or current delinquents who know how to use Good Old Fisticuffs.
  • Bifauxnen: Mafuyu as Natsuo. And Mafuyu 9 out of 10 times when she's not in her school uniform. Her clothes are so baggy they even fit Saeki!
  • Big Brother Instinct: Ayabe is made of this.
  • Big Brother Mentor: Takaomi towards Mafuyu and to the rest of the Disciplinary Club.
    • Quite evident as Takaomi kind of molded Mafuyu's deliquent mindset.
    • And Natsuo is regarded as such by Hayasaka.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: It was stronlgy hinted and then confirmed for Runa Momoji.
  • Book Dumb: A great part of the cast. Subverted with Hayasaka who seems dumb in a lot of ways but actually pays attention at school. Mafuyu remarks on how meticulous his notes are or how there are no doodles in his school books.
    • Actually Mafuyu may take the cake in the dumb department. She's extremely proud of only having one notebook for all her subjects. Subverted, because Yui finds a way for Mafuyu to learn things very fast exactly because her head is completely empty.
  • Born Lucky: Gotou Daikichi, the third strongest member of Okegawa's gang.
  • Breaking the Fellowship: Volume 6.
  • Brick Joke: Several. Including the time Mafuyu and Hayasaka went to look for Okegawa (the school's 'banchou') in the Old School Building. They see a few cockroaches and Mafuyu instinctively squishes them with the closest possible object she could reach, which happens to be Okegawa's school bag that had been lying on the floor. In a later scene the two are face to face with Okegawa who is incidentally carrying his bag with him and they can't help staring at it. Naturally Okegawa thinks they are staring at something else.
  • Boarding School: Midori ga Oka Academy is usually it. But since their dorms are full when Mafuyu transfers in, she has to stay in an outside apartment.
  • Bruce Wayne Held Hostage: Mafuyu's status as a weak mascot girl causes this sometimes. In one, oddly subverted case Natsuo (her Secret Identity) has to escape the kidnappers to save Hayasaka who has run off to save her.
  • Bruiser with a Soft Center: Banchou. Probably the first and only person to cry over a Nekomata movie. His pen name is Strawberry Love for god's sake!
  • But Not Too Foreign: Hayasaka's mother was an american woman called Lydia.
  • Cast Full of Pretty Boys: Until the appearance of the student council this manga had a total of one female character who sometimes does not even register as a girl.
  • The Charmer/The Empath: Aki. Possessed of a near-superhuman ability to read female body language, he uses it to make them happy - whether by match-making or match-breaking - up until he runs into Komari. The outcome of that one sees Komari becoming honest with her emotions around him, and the two of them becoming an Official Couple.
  • Chaste Hero: Basically everyone in the main cast excluding Takaomi Saeki. They are too focused on fighting to understand normal high school stuff like going to karaoke, so naturally romance is out of their league. Hayasaka’s feelings for Usachan-man may be love or just a childish admiration, but Shinobu is a perfect example as he is too dense to notice a certain person’s feelings for him.
  • Chekhov's Gun: The fortune Okegawa got in the New Year's chapter that warned him about not being late (very subtle, one needs to look closely to decipher it). In chapter 66 he is conveniently being held back a grade because he was late for his exam.
  • The Chessmaster: Miyabi & his father. Kousaka tries to be this, but fails miserably. May also apply to Takaomi.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Miyabi and, particularly, Yui.
    • Other characters sometimes fall into this too, like Mafuyu and Hayasaka.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Landers Minder: Wakana for Miyabi, she was practically asked to be this by her and his parents.
  • Cool Big Sis: Mafuyu, while she can be silly and childish, is looked-up to by her "ex-gang brothers" and has a protective nature... She will certainly play this role to anyone who needs her such as Hayasaka, Ayaben, Aki and Okegawa-banchou.
  • Covert Pervert: Surprisingly, Komari Yukioka.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: MAFUYU KUROSAKI.
  • Cry Cute: Kangawa. OMFG, Kangawa. A rather unexpected, nosebleed-inducing sight.
  • Cute Bruiser: Mafuyu, Ayaben and Kanon.
  • The Cutie: Komari, she is so adorable that some people faint from her cuteness.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Happens every so often. Okegawa is the earliest and most conventional example... And given Mafuyu's tendency to help everyone it just keeps happening again and again.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Miyabi is really pretty, even Aki describes him as looking like "a beautiful lady".
  • Dumb Blond: Both played straight and averted with Hayasaka who is 'dumb' in many ways but not book dumb. Bonus points for being recognized as a Japanese Delinquent immediately by everyone because of his hair colour.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Mafuyu as Natsuo; girls describe "him" as a prince, and it's heavily implied that Nonoguchi Kanon likes her too... Though she doesn't know that "he" is a "she".
  • Everyone Knows Morse: Mafuyu and Okegawa.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: In contrast to her gang leader/yankee days where she had dyed long blond hair, present time Mafuyu sports a short cut and her natural(?) hair color.
  • Facial Dialogue: Komari has this down to the point it's a virtual superpower. Since she always says the wrong thing while talking, she's developed her body language to the point she can get most anyone to do what she wants.
  • Five-Man Band: or also The Disciplinary CLUB
  • First Name Basis: Takaomi prefers that Mafuyu calls him by his first name, as she did when she was a child.
  • Forgotten Childhood Friend: Takaomi is Mafuyu's... Though she later starts remembering him a bit.
  • A Friend in Need: Mafuyu lives by this trope.
  • Friendly Enemy: Most members of the Student Council, even Miyabi.
  • Gender-Blender Name: It's has been recently revealed that Hayasaka's first name is Kaori, a common name for girls.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Kanon has her hair tied in two cute pigtails.
  • Handsome Lech: Hinted strongly that Saeki is one. Mafuyu wonders why she has seen several beautiful women leaving Saeki’s apartment in the morning. His answer to her inquiry: an arrogant smile.
  • Hero-Worshipper: Hayasaka worships the ground where Usa-chan Man walks... And he also looks up to Natsuo.
    • Aki tends to do this in some way too, as he likes "strong people". And ends up being Mafuyu's first "follower" in Midori ga Oka.
  • Highly-Visible Ninja: Yui Shinobu.
  • Hot-Blooded: Hayasaka in particular. He just loves to fight and Mafuyu/Natsuo has to use shounen manga-style power diagrams to get him to learn how to dodge in a fight (he never used to dodge his opponents' hits because he considered this to be cowardly).
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Everyone is at least one head if not two heads taller than Mafuyu.
    • Komari too; she's shorter than most of the girls, let alone the boys.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Mafuyu. She wants to be a girly girl and have actual female friends since she only used to hang around guys during her time as banchou. (No girl would dare to come close to her.) This results in a total misconception on her side on how girls act and she ususually ends up seeming like a Casanova Wannabe when trying to approach girls. Needless to say, all her attempts to obtain female friends fail horribly. Unless you count Okegawa. The corniness totally works on him.
  • In Love with Your Carnage: Yuuto Maizono just really wants Mafuyu to beat him... It's hinted that he joined her gang because of this.
  • In-Series Nickname:
    • Okegawa calls Mafuyu "Morse girl"
    • "Banchou" for Okegawa (even after he gets beaten by Mafuyu and stops being the actual Banchou for a while...).
    • Ayabe once called Mafuyu "Mafu-Mafu".
    • Yui starts calling Okegawa "Kyon-Kyon" after he joins the Disciplinary Club.
    • Arisugawa, the boy who wanted to dress as a maid, is called "Alice".
  • I Was Beaten By A Girl: Seeing how devasted Okegawa was at getting beaten by a smaller guy Mafuyu suspects he would be even more devastated if he found out that it was in fact a girl that took his position as Banchou from him.
    • He later ends up finding out the truth, but at that point he doesn't seem to care about it.
  • Japanese Delinquents: The cast is full of them. Pretty much everyone either used to be a delinquent, is a delinquent or is trying to quit being a delinquent. The internal justifification being, although being an Elaborate University High, Midori ga Oka has a serious enrollment issue. As a result, it accepts nearly any transfee, a lot of them being previously expelled due to this trope.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Mafuyu forgot about Takaomi due to head injury, and she still has missing pieces in her memory. Usually the flashbacks' of their childhood days are from Saeki's point of view.
  • Legacy of Service: When Wakana first meets Hanabusa and is asked to help him/look out for him, she thinks of this trope since her parents work for his parents.
  • Lethal Chef: Takaomi. Mafuyu is barely better than him.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: Hayasaka is hinted to be this.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Mafuyu and Hayasaka, Mafuyu and Okegawa, Mafuyu and Ayabe...
  • Mistaken for Gay: "Natsuo", briefly. Poor Hayasaka.
  • Missing Mom: Hayasaka's mother died some years ago from an illness.
    • Also his older cousins, Misaki and Yurika. They lost their mother due to a traffic accident, this led to them being adopted by their uncle Kouichi, Hayasaka's father.
  • The Mole: Shinobu, who is Becoming the Mask. He eventually hits crisis point when he's asked to finally betray the Disciplinary Club, and comes clean to both the club and Miyabi.
  • Mugging the Monster: Takaomi invokes this whenever he wants to.
  • New Transfer Student: Parodied. Mafuyu is a new transfer student, but she is such a Cloud Cuckoolander that everything associated with this trope is turned upside-down. She's so excited that she dons a new school uniform a day before the school starts, her well-practised introductory speech is so out-of-character that Saeki bursts out laughing, and when ordinary classmates (non-delinquents) talk to her she is deeply moved. Her Friendless Background is only her imagination; in fact, her friends from Higashi High appear from time to time and have their own sub-plots.
  • Nephewism: Kouichi Hayasaka ends up adopting and raising the daughters of his older sister Akiko after she dies.
  • The Nicknamer: Mafuyu.
    • Mafuyu uses either "Ninja" or "Glasses" for Shinobu.
    • After some Defeat Means Friendship Mafuyu starts calling Reito Ayabe "Ayaben".
  • No Name Given: Hayasaka still has no first name several volumes in and nobody has even so much as remarked upon it so far. There are hints that he might have an Embarrassing First Name.
    • His first name is Kaori, a name more commonly used for girls.
  • Oblivious to Love: Yui Shinobu aka Ninja... just ask poor Wakana!
  • Official Couple: One so far: Ookubo and Minato, Kangawa's sister, in the omakes/extras.
  • One-Note Cook: Just like Takaomi, Mafuyu can not cook. But as the series progresses she learns how to do cup noodles!
  • One of the Boys: Mafuyu, before and after her expulsion.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Played straight and lampshaded quite often with Mafuyu's 'Usa-chan Man' mask and her Natsuo disguise. Also when Mafuyu does not have her mask with her and tries to mask herself by wearing her t-shirt over her head (unfortunately it has her name on it) or wearing her wallet chain and a pack of tissues as an eyepatch over one eye.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Mafuyu and Kanon.
  • Poor Communication Kills: It certainly strained the realtionship between Hayasaka's parents, Kouichi and Lydia, for a long period of time.
  • Princely Young Man: Miyabi Hanabusa.
  • Promotion to Parent: Ayaben is the oldest of six children, and since his parents are busy with heir jobs, he has always been the main caretaker of his younger siblings.
  • Raised by Grandparents: Takaomi was raised by his paternal grandparents.
  • Rummage Sale Reject: Some of Mafuyu's and Banchou's fashion choices.
  • Secret Identity: Mafuyu has two: Natsuo and "Usa-Chan Man".
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Subverted with Mafuyu and Okegawa. Both are incredibly strong, but Banchou's all soft at the center. He even keeps imagining her as his prince.
  • Shrouded in Myth: Hayasaka and Okegawa’s view of the previous gang leader of Higashi High, Mafuyu, is so messed up that they mistake her gender, and that’s one of the lesser wrong assumptions they make. All thanks to Maizono.
  • Socially-Awkward Hero: Mafuyu, hands down. Jumping through the window when tied into a chair is nothing compared to the terror of speaking to normal girls.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Mafuyu looks like her mom. And Hayasaka is like a male version of his mother.
  • Supreme Chef: Ayabe and Yamashita.
  • Sweet Polly Oliver: Mafuyu as Natsuo.
  • Tall, Dark and Handsome: Takaomi, Okegawa, Kawauchi, Ookubo... the list goes on. Even Arisugawa, the cat-eared tsundere maid guy, fits the description.
  • Tomboy: Mafuyu all the way. She sometimes seems more like an actual guy than a tomboy.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: Yuuto Maizono. When he got caught by a rival gang he asked them to tie him up extra tight.
  • True Companions: Mafuyu truly believes in this, to the point that she is pleased to know that her former "enemy" Sakurada also does.
    • And obviously the members of the Disciplinary Club value their friendship greatly and would do anything to help each other.
  • Tsundere: Wakana towards Yui and Kanon towards Natsuo .
  • Unwanted Harem: Lampshaded (by Yui) but completely avoided so far despite there being only one girl in the main cast in the first few volumes.
    • Maybe... Mafuyu has several people "in love" with her or with one of her two secret identities.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Sakurada. Even Mafuyu admits he's cute. Poor Aoi even falls for "her"...
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Some characters have natural hair colors (brown, blond, black) but there are characters with hair colors such as purple (Komari), green (Hanabusa), etc.
