Plot[edit]

In a high school in Kasugai, Seto is a serious student who lives a quiet and ordinary life. But when his mischievous classmate, Anna Anjō, begins teasing and hanging out with him on a regular basis, it starts an interesting relationship between them. The story follows the lives and antics of the two polar opposites, both in appearance and personality, as they develop into a romantic couple through their many playful—and sometimes erotic—interactions.

Anjō is accompanied by her friends, Toyoda and Chita, while Seto is accompanied by his friends, Inuyama and Tokio. As they all grow friendly with one another, each person becomes romantically linked to their respective partner within the group as the story progresses.

Seto is a completely ordinary and somewhat boring high school student; but for whatever reason, his delinquent classmate Anjou just won’t leave him alone! The serious Seto and energetic Anjou make an unexpected duo, but Anjou doesn’t seem to mind the contrast, as she has too much fun bullying Seto.

 

Seto, on the other hand, is unable to deal with Anjou’s shenanigans; he doesn’t seem to realise that his humorous reactions are precisely the reason Anjou enjoys his company. But how much of her flirting is really just an act?

 

Yancha Gal no Anjou-san follows the entertaining daily antics of these two polar opposites, as playful teasing evolves into a treasured relationship.

Out of all the teasing manga I have read (Takagi-san, Nagatoro, Uzaki-chan), Yancha Gal no Anjou-san has to be my favorite. Why? Because the story is actually going somewhere. In a lot of these manga, I noticed that the story simply revolves around the two main casts and their relationship together while hinting at its readers that they might get together. But in the end, they don’t. With Anjou-san, even though it doesn’t have the romance tag on MAL, I get the feeling that Anjou and Seto will become more than just friends in the future. In the latest chapter, Seto asked Anjou out on a date and they hugged at the end of the day. Even though their relationship is already abnormally close and couple-like, they never really hugged. So I’m looking forward to them dating one day ‘cause that’s what I signed up for.

What I find most enjoyable about the manga is Anjou herself. I know she looks like a thot on the outside and is probably not a lot of people’s cup of tea, she is likable. Her character isn’t unique whatsoever because Nagatoro exists, but I prefer her character way more than Nagatoro. Anjou teases Seto and hangs out with him in hopes of breaking him out of his comfort zone. Seto is always seen studying, but by meeting Anjou, that gave him the opportunity to experience a lot of things and do a lot of things he would never do.

 

The kind of manga where it revolves around the two main casts, it’s really hard for the characters to develop. In Yancha Gal no Anjou-san’s case, surprisingly, the characters developed. Mainly Seto. At the start, Seto is a chicken like any other male lead, but in later chapters, he’s able to ask to hang out with Anjou, go one dates and so much more. With Anjou, she didn’t grow as much as Seto, but she did too. Anjou hangs out with Seto because it’s amusing. From the beginning, she stays around him without knowing that she’s bothering him with his studies. After a while, she started becoming aware of that he’s interfering with Seto on his studies because he knows that he’s going to college while she’s not, therefore she apologized. Love her.
