Protagonist Ishidu Natsu is an overly gifted and tall (1.82m) girl at highschool, who can achieve everything at sports and used to be one of the best in volleyball and karate without putting any effort into it. This, however, is leaving her constantly bored, she also tends to look down on other people.
Until, one day, she meets a small and happy girl advertising for her MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) club. Just for the sake of destroying her happiness, Natsu decides to have a spar with her - and will be shockingly surprised.
I was positively surprised when picking up this manga a few days ago. While sticking to the realistic basics of MMA, this is delivering a very nice story from the position of a person who used to be good at everything but now is the underdog - and by no means likeable.
It also delivers all information needed to understand the technique of MMA off scratch.

I agree with u , this manga is pretty interesting and u can learn a few things about martial arts in every chapter
My favorite series This series really rules! thanks for translating this Shadow!
It's true that the mangaka is dead?
Chapter 19 has been released and the tournament progresses smoothly, can´t wait for Yuzuka´s fight and the second round, especially the match between Natsu and Sanae.
