If Only I Had Thorns Like a Thistle…
Honnouji Academy. An academy ruled over by students clad in special outfits called Goku Uniforms. Student Council President Satsuki Kiryuin, along with the Honnouji Academy Elite Four, have the academy under their absolute control.
So Sexy She Might Pass Out
Ryuko has taken up residence with Mako's family, the Mankanshokus. She names her talking sailor uniform "Senketsu." The next day, she and Mako are going to school when Mako is suddenly ganged up on by the Tennis Club.
Satsuki Kiryuin has been using Life Fibers, the source of the Goku Uniforms' power, in her plot to conquer all of the nation's academies. To fight back, Ryuko's father, Isshin Matoi created a Kamui, a uniform woven entirely of Life Fibers.
Dawn of a Miserable Morning
Ryuko wakes up to find everyone in a tizzy. Today is "Honnouji Academy No-Late Day," held each semester by the Disciplinary Committee. They set countless traps on the route to school, and if a student is late they are summarily expelled.
Ryuko is defeating Honnouji Academy's club presidents at a steady pace when Tsumugu Kinagase appears before her. Kinagase wields a machine gun that neutralizes the abilities of Goku Uniforms. He can hold off even Two-Star club presidents.
A Loser I Can't Hate
Performance in clubs and the classroom have a direct impact on students' quality of life, so Ryuko founds the "Fight Club" and designates Mako as its president. As the club garners success, the Mankanshokus' living arrangements improve.
I'll Wipe My Own Tears
The Reprisal General Election, a school event in which all students have the right to attack any other student equally to vie to become top dog at the academy. The Elite Four part ways until the Sudden Death Runoff in seven days' time.
A Once in a Lifetime Chance
The King of the Hill Final Battle. Defeat the Elite Four, and Ryuko can battle Satsuki. Mikisugi suggests to Ryuko that she forfeit, but Ryuko won't budge when it commes to the chance to fight Satsuki.
Ride Like the Wind
Ryuko wakes up in Mikisugi's hideout. Thanks to the scarf portion of Senketsu that Mikisugi found, Senketsu and Ryuko are able to communicate. Learning that the rest of Senketsu's parts are in Kansai, Ryuko heads there with Mikisugi.
