Welcome to Amazon Academy! A lovely school founded and promoted by Japan's first female Prime Minister in the year 2020, the academy hopes to promote better morals and a well-rounded education among the new and growing generation of women in Japan! Teaching everything from physical education to proper tea ceremony, the school has everything a young woman could want!

A manga series created by "Betten Court" in 2011, ''Tokyo Girls Destruction'' tells the story of a girl named Kumi Amasu, who is informed that her older sister, Towa, died while attending Amazon Academy. Unable to learn anything more, and with the police no help, Kumi has only two clues: Her sister's headband, and the name "Burai Sachiko" in Towa's otherwise-empty cellphone. Kumi enrolls in Amazon Academy to hunt for information about her sister's death, but her first day of class is hardly over when Kumi discovers the darker side of the school: When the last bell rings, the rules go out the window and the students engage in a [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown no-holds-barred battle royale]] for star badges. Those who have them get to enjoy somewhat-normal school lives, but those without a badge are treated like slaves.

Kumi's only ray of hope is the rogue student Burai Sachiko, the last girl to see Towa before her death, and who was locked in a "penalty cell" for her trouble. With Sachiko's help, Kumi just might be able to survive long enough to finish her investigation, but can she win her trust?

Think ''Manga/{{Shitsurakuen}}'', without any males, where the fights take place in reality.

!!This manga includes examples of:

* AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil: To the point where they have their own tower on campus to hide from other students and even their own security force.
* AcademyOfAdventure
* AdultsAreUseless: They hold some power over the students, but the student council holds power over them.
* ArmorPiercingSlap: [[spoiler: Kumi to Yagyūin in chapter 15.]]
* BoardingSchoolOfHorrors
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower
* ChewToy: Mineko Hinata is thrown around a lot (sometimes literally), and is forced to end most of her sentences with "meow."
* EyesAlwaysShut: Hinata.
* FalseFriend: [[spoiler: Played with in case of Hinata who is really this until the final chapters. Sasarano also accuses Kumi of being that after Yagyūin blamed Kumi for poisoning her.]]
* FourEyesZeroSoul / EyepatchOfPower: Yagyūin, the ClassRepresentative, has both ''at the same time''.
* HugeSchoolgirl: Sasarano easily towers over every other female student seen so far.
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:Despite betraying Kumi, stealing her badge and causing a fight between Sasarano and Burai which led to the latter's capture,]] Hinata [[spoiler:simply got away with it. In fact Kumi still seems to think of her as a friend.]]
* IFightForTheStrongestSide: Hinata's reaction after Kumi got under Burai's protection.
* [[spoiler:IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: Kumi to Burai after she had been brainwashed by the student council. It works.]]
* ImNotHereToMakeFriends: The general mindset of the students who are aware of the Academy's nature before arriving there.
* JapaneseDelinquents: Sasarano and Burai. Both are mainly interested in fighting and violate the school uniform code. The former's "uniform" is even heavily inspired by male Banchou stereotypes.
* LackOfEmpathy: ''All over the place''. (With the obvious exception of Kumi) But special note would go to Yagyūin and Suzaku-sensei.
* LaserGuidedTykebomb: [[spoiler:What the Student Council wants to turn Burai into.]]
* [[spoiler:NeutralNoLonger: While having always been out for herself alone, Hinata finally has a change of heart in chapter 14 and helps Kumi out of sheer friendship.]]
* SadistTeacher: Suzaku Hamon, playing this trope painfully straight.
* SeriousBusiness: Badges. They grant each student an easy life. The more you have of them the higher your status in the schools hierarchy.
* SocialServicesDoesNotExist: Or at least, given the communication ban between the island and the mainland, it doesn't exist at the school.
* SuperStrongChild: Burai is somehow able to kick a thick steel door off its hinges while being chained to the ceiling.
** Sasarano Sara seems to be this as well, though she has the size for it to be slightly more believable.
* TeensAreMonsters
* TheDeterminator: Kumi, who doesn't give up searching for the truth behind her sister's death and to stay a good person. Also to a degree any of the badgeless students.
* TheStarscream: Hinata is this to Kumi, always thinking about betraying her.
* TheSpartanWay: Apparently how the academy, works behind the guise of a elite-if-traditional school. It's designed to produce students with exceptional skills in manipulation, survival and/or determination.
* [[spoiler:ThePowerOfFriendship: Kumi, Burai, Sasarano and even Hinata in the chapter 12-15.]]
* UndyingLoyalty: Burai to Kumi.
** [[spoiler: Sasarano's two underlings also turn out to be this when they follow her into the student council building and try to get her out regardless of badges. ]]
** Subverted with most badge carriers who have a following, they will try to betray them at any moment of weakness.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Everyone seems to regard the battle royales as a fact of life at the Academy.
* UpToEleven: Apparently, getting three badges in total is enough of an accomplishment to let you visit the normally-off limits student council. By Chapter 11, it is revealed that [[spoiler:Yagyūin]] has ''ten''.]]
* VerbalTic: Hinata constantly says "meow" after every sentence, though it was beaten into her by a teacher rather than being a naturally-occurring tic.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Yagyūin seems to have this with her elder sister, who is on the student council and ignores her and her actions.
* WideEyedIdealist: Kumi. [[spoiler: Her sister, Towa, ''seems'' to have been this.]]
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Kumi sees Hinata as her friend, [[spoiler:despite the later not only constantly thinking about betraying her but also having allready done so once without Kumi realising it.]]
** [[spoiler:Subverted in the end, Hinata stays loyal to Kumi when it mattered.]]
* WhamEpisode: Chapter 10. [[spoiler:Burai is captured and Kumi loses her badge.]]
* WorldOfActionGirls: Amazon Academy. It's in the name.
* YamatoNadeshiko: What Amazon Academy seeks to train its students into; tea ceremony is part of the curriculum. [[spoiler: The truth is... darker and more insidious.]]
