The daughter of a distinguished gymnast and a former boxing champion, red-headed ex-gymnast Maki Aikawa can perform incredible moves in mid-air, which earn her the name of "Air Master." Maki's widowed father now owns a gymnasium and has remarried, giving her a half-sister, Miori. But gymnastics is no longer enough for Maki, and she turns, somewhat illogically, to street fighting as a means of getting the same thrill. She and her gang of girlfriends of various sizes, types, and sexual inclinations have the usual high school adventures while Maki fights a string of increasingly absurd opponents like masked wrestler Lucha Master, aspiring schoolgirl supermodel Kaori Sakiyama (her self-declared rival), quarterstaff master Shinnosuke (who is so smitten with Maki he transfers to her school), writer and street fighter Julietta (a guy who also falls for Maki), Reichi, whose weapon of choice is a bicycle, and so on, in the quirky opponent-of-the-week format of Tiger Mask and Ranma . The gritty battles are interrupted by the usual wholly gratuitous efforts to get the cast to take their clothes off, such as a trip to the beach.

Another gang of school street fighters, the Black Alliance, provides more training opportunities for Maki; then she and Kaori get involved in tag wrestling, meeting up with the sister of old opponent Rucha. She joins an elite street fighter group that uses the whole city as its arena, and begins to focus on spiritual power as a way to fight better. In the last episode she loses her final battle, but finds the fulfillment she has been seeking throughout a series that provides plenty of fight action and moderate humor; the animators invest the greatest amount of their time and budget in getting the battles right. Based on Yokusaru Shibata's Young Animal manga. NV
