Atrable Federation is a military superpower that started the Endless War. After conquering many neighboring countries the Federation turns its attention to a small island country that is big only in name, the Great Empire of Sun.

Akiyama Maika is a girl seeking her father who went to war when she was little. Seeing the chance in the arrival of the legendary squad of mighty soldiers, Ikkitousentai, to a nearby city, she questions the military about her father's whereabouts. However, much to the girl's surprise her father appears not to be enlisted in the army. Maika, dejected by this news as well as savage city life, suddenly encounters a burly man falling from the sky. The bystanders name him the Invincible Wolf, one of the Ikkitousentai, and it seems like he knows something about Maika's father! Unfortunately, he isn't willing to tell anything to a civilian.

Maika decides to enlist in the Ikkitousentai in order to find her father. Even though the army doesn't accept women, such a thing won't stop Maika!

So I go on mangahere (my current preferred site for english translations) and I see a new SEINEN GENDER-BENDER on the feature box. Plus, war! Wow, this must be something awesome, I think. So I click the title link and the first page shows a (very) well endowed girl in short-shorts and what I can only guess is a military uniform. Damn. Maybe that's just a teaser and not how MC would actually look cross-dressed. So I keep reading.

And after 55 pages I conclude only this: no way in hell would MC EVER look like a boy.

I keep seeing comments that MC is so brave and not at all superficial, because her reason for cross-dressing is NOT to chase after some guy. (Actually it kind of is the reason if you really think about it, but I'm not saying any more 'cause I'm too lazy to put a spoiler tab.)

My honest opinion is that MC is 80% shoujo heroine, and 15% Mulan. And 5% boobs. She's whiny and air-headed, with a dash of stubbornness. But all this seems to stem from naivety:

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The first chapter is basically her saying "I want to go to war, I wana fight!" but can she even run with those utters on her? I mean, every time she falls, trips, or gets shoved (which is VERY often in chapter 1) somehow the short skirt magically flips over and we see a sneak of pale inner thighs. Yet she still wants to be part of the elite soldier group Ikkitousentai?!

Bottom line is, I can't take her seriously. But I've only chanced upon the first chapter, so I'll leave it as a 6 for now.
