"Maki Aikawa is tall, with a nice model-like figure, but is also quiet and looks like an ordinary high school girl. However, her unique life style includes being a street fighter within the dark alleyways and back streets of Tokyo. To date, she remains undefeated against both men and women. And with a unique arsenal of aerial techniques allowing her to knock out opponents at will, people began to call her the Air Master. One day, she encountered a scene where several girls (also known as a ko-gal group) who attended Tomato High School were being picked on by a boy. Seeing this, Maki came to their assistance and ended up fighting him and knocking him out. The gallery of people, who held witness to this, started yelling that she was the Air Master. Another street fighter of high spirit who refers to himself as Lucha Master, was also at the scene and immediately challenged her. And with that, a high-level street fight began spontaneously!"
This is my favorite fighter series. It's not for everyone. Some say having female fighters is just an excuse for fan service. Some say this series doesn't have enough fan service. But I think it has a good balance. Yes, there is fan service in it, but not gratuitous fan service. Street fighting in a school uniform without at least some up-skirt would just be unnatural.
Maki is a former gymnast who has grown too tall for competition, yet still craves the tension it gave her. So she decides to follow in her father's footsteps and takes up street fighting.
There are some romantic tensions as well, involving one of her girlfriends, and her mystery man, Juliette Sakamoto.
It's not all fighting though. Her little sister, followers and rival provide plenty of comic relief. She's like Girl-Type Ranma on steroids, with less romantic entanglement and more fighting.
