The story of Busou Shoujo Machiavellism

However, he will be admitted to Pvt Aichi Symbiosis Academy, another school, where situation becomes pitiable for him. This is the school where girls do shows and trains discipline to the boys, carrying weapons in their hands. Nomura had to dress up like a girl at the school and watch and experience the brutality shown by the five swords. Onigawara Rin leads there a five ladies’ team, who are better known as Supreme Five swords. Where no one dares to confront them, Nomura, that expelled boy, in his new school, shows his own right and tries to give the girls lesson about true morality, instead of showing brutality.

Eventually, as the episodes continue, he becomes close with the five girls, but he is someone who has no sense that he is been liked by the girls. In one word, it can be said that he is least bothered about those and he is a guy, who loves to remain free from everything.

Twist in the story ofBusou Shoujo Machiavellianism
The name of the busou shoujo machiavellianism is itself confusion, but keeping that apart, the criticism should be in the storyline of the anime. The best part lies in the chemistry between the girls and the main character – Nomura. While the girls intended to take charge on Nomura and correct him in his way of conduct, like she did for all the boys. However, there is a great twist here, where the plot just gets reversed. The girls were right in their moral, but not in their approaches. They were excessively brutal in their approach and at times that instigated enmity among the boys and girl, otherwise fear was the thing that was ruling everything. The twist works while the situation gets reversed and Nomura starts framing the way of treatment that the girls used to give. The rest episodes show how he changes the thought, practice and the nature of the girls to bring them in the right track. Overall judgment of the storyline is really good and it can be stated to be slightly more than that of an anime.
The series has been named to be a romantic, comedy and school based series. It can be understood that there are comedies in it, which is quite visible in any of the Anime movies. The entire story line is based on School and is dedicated for the students. Hence, there is again no doubt that the genre selected has remained accurate, but problem lies with the romantic emblem. Other than few romantic scenes of Nomura and Rin, and a seduction scene from Amou, there is nothing romantic in the series. Even, the chemistry shown between Rin and Nomura has remained one sided, as Nomura was shown not to be interested in romanticism.
Finally, the last episode of the series ended normally, without showing any patch up or romantic end, where Rin and Nomura mixes up. Where Rin always remained conservative with her feelings towards Nomura, Nomura always showed least interest towards romanticism. Hence, how can this series be called a romantic one? Some critics claim that there would be a season 2 of the series and that would work on the romanticism. If that is not the case, then romanticism is something that doesn’t exactly matches with the series.
In that aspect also, most of the critics want to state that there cannot be a season 2 of the series, since the main motto of busou shoujo machiavellism was to establish morality, by abolishing brutality, which has been successfully completed by Nomura. This is the thing that has remained disappointing for the viewers, who expected the series to be very much romantic. Otherwise, the story line of the series, the character formation and the flow of the story, all remained very much correct to get a good rating.
Ending of the story – start watching it
The end of the story has remained blind and that made the viewers understand that the show would have a second session, as the story didn’t match the hero and the heroine, till the end.
