EDIT
Samurai Girl Appears
AIRED:
As Ryoko Mitsurugi goes to Daimon High School, she gets confronted by a group of ninjas and fends them off easily in a K-Fight, an officially sanctioned duel to settle disputes between folks at the school. Later on, when she prepares for a tournament where the winning club gets 100 times their usual funding, Ryoko finds a pendant necklace in a locker and puts it on. She faces her rival kendo senpai Azumi Kiribayashi in a duel but strange things begin to happen soon afterwards.moreless

  • Intro episodes are just that: introductory

    7.9
    The series opens slightly different from the manga. In the anime, the K-Fight system has already been established, and the interaction between Shi-zuma and Ryoko implies some history. But it’s still easy to catch what’s going on.



    Ryoko gets plenty of drool time and is every bit as hot as the manga. Most of the other characters are introduced fairly quickly though. The action’s average and looks like your usual kind of fighting anime. Not much blood so far, but there seems to be more shots of Ryoko's underwear; I guess that's to be expected when your schoolgirl uniforms are of the tiny miniskirt kind.



    Voice acting is enjoyable even if it’s just a lot of martial arts yelling. It's nice to hear the gals who’ve done the more popular animes like Chobits and Bleach. Azumi and Shi-zuma make good early but generally friendly rivals.



    I’m not sure what to say about the pendant. It’s a clichéd idea. I’m not expecting much else.moreless

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Nakamura: Well, champ, you have any words you'd like to say before you begin?
      Ryoko: Like I said before, I hate living life like this.

    • (after defeating the ninjas)
      Ryoko: Pathetic. Should you train a hundred years more, you might be ready to challenge me.

    • Ryoko: Get your dirty hands off Tatsuya-senpai you perverted weasel of a girl!
      Azumi: Oh my, what a filthy mouth you have. I'm appalled to even be a member of the same gender. Come now, Tatsuya; our hind quarters will turn red if we stay with this mountain monkey much longer.

  • NOTES (4)

    • Special End Corner: Ikue and Sakura talk about their cosplay modeling at the beach.

    • As this is a Japanese anime adaptation that has never aired on regular US Television, no official production codes have been released and therefore episode numbers will be used.

    • Ikue Kimura and Sakura Nogawa cosplay as Ryoko and Miyuki during the closing credits of each episode.
