Chou Kuse ni Narisou (literally "I'll Make a Habit of It") is a shoujo manga written by An Yoshimura and drawn by Yayoi Nakano, which ran in Nakayoshi from 1993 to 1995. A 39-episode anime adaptation aired from 1994 to 1995.

Nagisa Shiratori is a girl who loves to sing. She leaves home, is promptly discovered, and instantly becomes the top Idol Singer in Japan. Her secret: she's really the heir to a martial arts dojo that's having trouble attracting any students to develop into possible heirs. She needs to find some strong people... but she's an Idol Singer, so she can't. So she disguises herself as a boy and enrolls in the toughest junior high school she can find.

Add the members of the school gang, an Unknown Rival trying to supplant her as the #1 Idol Singer, and an international conspiracy, and Hilarity Ensues in a very Ranma-ish way.

Nagisa and her Love Interest Nosaka also feature in a Super Famicom videogame, Panic In Nakayoshi World.


Provides examples of:

  • Idol Singer: Nagisa becomes the top idol in Japan, and she'd like to keep it that way since she doesn't want to inherit her father's martial arts dojo.
  • Mistaken for Gay: A consequence of Nagisa being attracted to Nosaka while disguised as a boy.

  • Shout-Out: Episode 17 parodies Legend of the Galactic Heroes. The leaders of the two factions of warring Nagisa fans are named Reinhardt and Yang, and resemble the respective characters from that show.
  • Sweet Polly Oliver: Nagisa disguises herself as a boy so she can attend school without being recognised as an idol.

Alternative Title(s): Chou Kuse Ni Narisou
