In Japan, picking a high school is a rather important decision which
is usually full of stress. Everyone goes through it, including Kazuya
Hasukawa. However, most people manage to deal with the pressure
better then Kazuya, who gets an ulcer and ends up missing the first
month of his freshmen highschool year. To make matters worse, Sumire,
the girl that he liked very much, married his older brother, Kazuhiro.
So, Kazuya finally arrives at Ryokuto Academy, an all boys school, and
is put up in a dorm called Ryokurin Hall, also known as
Greenwood seems to attract odd and strange persons like a dog attracts
fleas. Included are:
There is also an older, middle aged lady who watches over the 200 boys
who live in Greenwood.
- Shun Kisaragi - this ambiguous person looks like a girl in nearly
all physical ways, but, is in fact a boy. He is Kazuya's room mate.
- Shinobu Tezuka - this very smart and rather sneaky person is the
student council president and lives next door. He has an older sister
who is into S&M, and the like.
- Mitsuru Ikeda - Shinobu's room mate and the dorm president. Any
scratch on his face disappears within one minute and has a girl in
every "port" [or equiv.]. Mitsuru and Shinobu have arranged for
Kazuya to be the next dorm president.
- Furusawa - a cycle nut. He literally lives with his motorcycle.
- Misako - a young girl who was hit by a truck. She is a ghost and
will forever be 16 years old. For a while, she haunted Mitsuru.
While many of the things the students of Greenwood participate in are
more like what college students in the U.S. might do, this is still
basically a high school teen "folly" series. Kazuya is basically a
nice guy and is probably one of the more normal persons who live in
Of course, this is a rather amusing series that is fairly well made.
There are also a number of "in" jokes in the series, including one
cameo appearance by girl-type Ranma in the
first episode and a short highschool version of one of the Rupan III movies.
