Ooyama is a shy, independent high school student, although lately, it hasn’t been that way. Riko Akutsu has made Ooyama’s bedroom her after-school hangout after forcibly squeezing into his flat on a whim. 

The troubled student from his class loves to read all of his Manga, take naps in his bed, and eat his food and drinks. This is a regular occurrence that just worsens things because Ooyama must continuously deal with her mischief.

Even though Ooyama wishes Akutsu would return home, he cannot force her to do so because his young mind is exposed to her seductive actions. The playful taunting in their strange connection eventually changes, though, as the two get used to being around each other.

Awosome Review

Yancha Gal no Anjou-san – Overview

Seto is a rather unremarkable and uninteresting high school student, but for some reason, his bad-boy classmate Anjou won’t let him be! Seto and Anjou’s contrast of energy and seriousness is unexpected. Still, Anjou doesn’t seem to mind the difference because she enjoys harassing Seto so much.

On the other hand, Seto is unable to handle Anjou’s antics and doesn’t seem to understand that Anjou loves his presence because of his amusing replies. How much of her flirtation, though, is really pretense?

The fun everyday activities of these two polar opposites are followed in Yancha Gal no Anjou-san as their playful taunting develops into a special bond.
