Episode 1

Nakayama sure got herself in a big mess there having to fight her way to the top. At this school, one-on-one fights determine who gets to the top, and as such she is posing as Hikaru and right off the bat she's fighting. Pretty solid start for a short that figures to have intrigue in this.

Some of those guys are pretty tough especially that blonde guy.

I almost mistaken Nakayama as a girl at first tbh.

So I'm only watching this because 3 of my 4 favorite seiyuu are in it, and their characters look like their characters from Tsukiuta.

I'm going to have to try hard to avoid just calling them by their Tsukiuta characters' names.

Though, Kenn really got to do more in this episode, acting-wise, than he usually does in Tsukiuta, since Aoi is a more... reserved, I guess, type? This one reminded me of how he is in Marginal #4. I like that, he does roles like that really well. <3

At least this is better than Love Rice. The first real fight of the series was nice and short, too.

The concept has me intrigued and the first episode was pretty good in my eyes. I look forward to seeing the rest also I'm glad it's 8 mins an episode (well more like 6 1/2 if you take out the OP/ED) instead of something like 3 - 5 mins a episode like a usual short anime.

I thought Nakayama was a trap (fairly common in recent shows), but Nakayama turned out to be a girl. Seems like she's quite skilled in martial arts. The quick combo on the blond guy looked slick, and the sound effects were satisfying. Eager to see what other conflicts await her.

Interesting premise, though 8 minutes feel very short.

Good episode but wish it was longer. Note to self maybe you should tell your twin more back ground information before throwing her into the fire of battle? Guess its sink or swim

Interesting enough premise...I like the fact that the MC is a trap who can kick ass.

Too short though!

That was interesting. I wish it was longer. First short that's managed to hold my attention in awhile.

Episode 2

It all started when those two pink-haired kids bumped into each other, and that's how Nakayama became a boy to impersonate Hikaru. Pretty interesting stuff going on seeing that she had to do this in order to be off the hook for Hikaru's medical bills. Now that Nakayama has beaten Totomaru that he's following her lead. Pretty solid stuff for a short there, and I wonder how this next boy has figured out that this isn't really Hikaru that is fighting.

Way too much effort put into a stupid premise. And even after that painfully awkward exposition pretzel, the last few minutes were even more boring. I'm done giving this one a chance.
