The story revolves around a poor high school student named Satou You. Satou goes to the supermarket one day and discovers a bento (boxed meal) on sale at half price. Just as he reaches to grab it, he ends up on the floor unconscious. Satou has just entered the fierce, no-holds-barred supermarket survival battle for half-price bento.

I was expecting more or less Ranma 1/2 all over again. Yet this show for all it's worth is not a bad action romance. The characters though typical are watchable. I think I will enjoy this series of hard knocks and bento.
I admit it's really strange but it's got its funny parts.
I would fight exactly that hard for half priced food.
I have seen people fight hard for food. Realistic. Recommend for general entertainment, but not something I would wait weekly for. Average artistry and voice acting, but it gets you with humour.
The gorgeous, violent nutbars, the supermarket as mystic battlefield, the half-price bento, the rippling miniskirts, the longed for timely breeze - this isn't quite awesome, or ultimately awesome, it's a parody of ultimate awesomeness, with a ditz who keeps calling the hero by the wrong name.
