The story centres on the members of a highschool kendo club - in particular the five female members that comprise the girls tournamanet team. The story is very much about the development of the characters and their interpersonal relationships. The story follows the characters as they deal with friendships, relationships and of course improving their kendo skills.
This show is excellent. It has a great soundtrack and every piece of music in it is perfectly chosen to fit the tone of the scene. It is also very well written with the larger ongoing plotlines slotted in brilliantly around the smaller lot arcs. The animation is also very well done and the kendo fights are very well thought out.
All in all this is a wonderful anime with great comedic value as well as wonderful drama.
