Jindai High School was a relatively safe place, right up until Sousuke Sagaka transferred there. A total nut, he wreaks havoc on the school's student body and gets into a world of trouble with the teachers! But there's more to Sousuke than meets the eye--not just a hell-raising student, he's actually a member of an elite military unit, on an undercover mission to protect the beautiful schoolgirl Kaname Chidori from the KGB. Discover the mystery as this comedy-action-science-fiction story unfolds!

If you like military fiction I think you'll love this. Sosuke is an interesting and complex character. If you've seen the anime or read the manga but haven't read the source I suggest you find these books. The anime only covers up to about book 5. I saw the animes and couldn't wait to know what happened next so i read the books. Let me say that the series just gets better. I eagerly await the next anime adaptation. But what I like about these books is the insight you get into the character of Sosuke. He is a man raised as a soldier trying to blend in to civilian life, while this is at times comical it is also rather tragic. Particularly when he tries to recognize romantic relationship without ever having witnessed one. Sosuke is the kind of badass character that sort of the odd man out that is trying to find a place to belong. Great series and one of my favorite main characters.
