Based on the ongoing manga series by Yumi Nakata that stated back in 2007 and has three tankobon so far, Chu-Bra is a thirteen episode series that revolves squarely around panties and bras and all things associated with them. While that in itself is certainly not a bad thing, it's a bit more complicated when the show focuses on twelve year old girls in middle school as it will certainly provide a creepy factor for many people, fans or not. That said, the first episode does manage to provide enough charm and a slightly sly reason for being so involved in the subject matter that it almost works.
Chu-Bra revolves around twelve year old Nayu who is one of the many new students at the Ounan Middle School that she's now attending. While some of them have come up through the elevator system, there are many students from other elementary schools who are here for the first time. For Nayu, she's got a hard time in actually making friends and it's the biggest thing on her mind now that sheâs at Ounan. This endeavor is made more difficult when during the entrance ceremony she's selected as the one to give a speech because of her high grades, but also because she trips herself up on the way up and reveals that sheâs wearing adult panties. Black skimpy panties at that.
The girls are all a buzz about this now in the days to come and they're doing what girls do best and thatâs to be catty in groups about it. Nayu's fairly unaware of this as she does her best at things while finding herself forced into the class rep position as well. The ones who follow her the most so far though are a pair of friends from elementary school named Yako and Haruka. They're intent on figuring out whatâs going on with her as there are rumors of paid dating, sugar daddies and more. So they follow her and try to keep their distance in the day to day business of school so they can try and catch a glimpse of what she's really all about.
