"I'm sorry, but I don't have any time to waste!"
Every biker needs a helmet. But Akira Kazama milks more than skull safety out of it. The normally quiet and reserved tomboy projects a badass personality when her red-and-black skulls-and-spikes outfit is complete. Any street toughs who get in her way are met with elbow jabs, spinning kicks, and even getting tossed in the air — and combo'ed still. For the sake of their manliness, these troublemakers are better off not knowing she's a girl under that helmet.
Akira dearly looks up to her older brother Daigo, an influential gang leader at the all-boys school Gedo High. His disappearance in Rival Schools prompts her to sniff him out starting at Gedo, first donning gloves, a jacket, and especially her helmet to hide her gender. Under the guise of Daigo's younger "brother," Akira convinces his most loyal lackeys, Edge and Gan, to help reclaim their idol. Anyone who messes with Daigo gets pummeled back to grade school.
