Ever have a crazy best friend? The kind who jumps out of windows, makes robot clones of herself, and (accidentally) punches teachers in the gut?
Torako does all these things and more. She's a force of nature, and thanks to her, nothing at Kamizono Academy ever goes quite as planned. Looking for the right classroom turns into a comical case of breaking and entering. Sketching fellow students in art class turns into a racy photo shoot. No one can predict what Torako will do next, but wherever she and her friends go, laughter is sure to follow.
The HYAKKO Complete TV Series DVD set will contain the entire 13-episode television series - in a single DVD keepcase, with Japanese audio, English subtitles and on-screen translations - plus on-disc extras, including the clean opening and ending, clean opening and ending (initial broadcast version), liner notes, and original U.S. trailer.
