Newcomer Aikawa Maki literally flies into the street fighting scene with a sudden string of victories. Agile and quick, she quickly makes a name for herself among the locals and becomes a featured target for the street fighting elite. Brutal looking attacks and impossible looking counters leave the viewers with quite an impression.

What I love about this series is the well paced story that progresses the characters at an even keel; a rarity in the fighting genre which tends to either drag out the action. As a bonus, people familiar with Tokyo will instantly recognize that this show is set in Shibuya. This is possibly one of the best animes you've never heard of, and one of the my favorite fighting animes of all time.
