Have you ever wondered what  would be like if Lady Oscar of “Rose of Versailles” was a sukeban in a slightly less well-drawn manga? Except instead of a horse, she rides a motorcycle, instead of a princely outfit, she wears a fuku, and instead of a sword she wields a yo-yo?

Me neither, but that’s an accurate description of "Sukeban Deka," a manga serialised from 1976-1982.  

It’s interesting to see so much action in a typical retro shoujo manga style, although the quality of the art leaves something to be desired.

"Sukeban Deka" has been adapted into three live-action television series, an original video animation series and three feature films, the latest of which was released in 2006 as "Yo-Yo Girl Cop."
