Kodocha: Sana's Stage

Child star Sana Kurata tries to "fix" the problems of everyone around her- and there are a LOT of problems to solve. Her classroom's overrun by bullies, her teacher's being blackmailed and the girls live in terror all because of the tyrannical rule of the demon child Akito Hayama. There's going to be a Rumble in the Jungle Gym when these two strong personalities collide. Sana harbors a massive crush on her manager Rei, the man she adoringly calls her "gigolo", but when Rei shatters her adolescent notions of romance, will her arch rival Hayama step in to pick up the pieces? As sworn enemies become fast friends, Sana's life is about to get way more interesting.
