Story Plot started with Kinji Toyama regretting over missing the Morning 07:58 A.M. Bus to School.

Reason being is that he is a Butei and being targeted by a killer, that should he ask for help, he will be shot, and slowly down his bicycle will cause a bomb in his seat to explode.

Talk about having a refreshing Morning right off the bat, until he got help from Aria Holmes Kanzaki.

After getting help and displaying his "Hysteria Mode" to Aria, he was scouted right off by her into being her "Slave".

Kinji reluctantly joined, though he got the mind of quit being a Butei after his older brother was killed even after saving many lives in a ship hijack.

His brother was actually alive, and was scouted to join some secret organization, unknown to many, until the Butei Killer reveal the secret, which so happened to be Riko Mine; both a Butei Student, and the descendant of Arsene Lupin.

Interestingly, Aria is the descendant of Sherlock Holmes, and my praise to the Creator for creatively in using some Characters, and making use of "Descendant".

Which pretty much made the Characters based off being rea;, but when one peeked in the Light Novel, one might find it pretty impossible since Sherlock Holmes is still living and kicking.

Being the Main Character, Kinji got 4 powerful girls being in love with him, who knew of his Secret where he will go into Hysteria Mode, where he is very good in thinking, and Gun shooting.

But the condition for him to activated it - being aroused by/from a girl. The main purpose on activating it was to protect a/the girl(s). And interestingly, Kinji is aware of his personality changes, where he was afraid of being label as a Playboy.

As much as I misspeak his name as Kimchi, he sure is very powerful, and getting the attention of the Secret Organization, E-U.

But I find it funny where he seem to have a "Wife", Shirayuki Hotogi, who's a Yandere. A childhood friend, and holding many position in the School like the Student Council Chairman, she sure can get very easily Jealous when any girl go near Kinji.

Her wielding a Katana, or releasing "Fire" is not a joke to rush off. Though I find Riko sexually assaulting Kinji privately most of the time, best be keep a secret from Shirayuki.

Aria and Riko are also given the title "Quadra" for able to use 2 Guns and 2 Katana, which I always wondering how they hide those long Katana on their back!

Good thing it friction, or else I'll try hiding mine on my back too.

Also, I think Kinji will find "I pointing a gun at you, kissed you, so marry me, ok?" a very refreshing experience from Reki.

Talked about being descendant of Minamoto no Yoshitsune and Genghis Khan, or being a "Sweeper" in killing off her targets. She was also "supposed" to have a minor role in the whole story since she only doing covering fire only!

I still find Aria holding the position who seem to push Kinji around a lot, and Kinji followed. They even sleep in the SAME room, but different beds.

Who know when the Wolf inside Kinji might Strike, which scared Shirayuki, though I find both Riko and Reki might do the same to Kinji instead.

If you're wonder what a Butei is, they are like Police where they can hold weapons and arrest criminal. Also they can take on odds jobs and earning money, but they all must follow a set of rules, known as "Butei Laws".

Sure is hard since they can hold Weapons but can't kill anyone, though it did seem like Reki did kill but Riko is clean off her records, despite being a Butei Killer, she didn't kill anyone.

With so many Mystery And Myth lying around, Bombs or Katana lying around and Firearms shooting around, did you peek into the World of Crime fighting Butei in Hidan no Aria?
