Stop!! Hibari-kun! (ストップ!! ひばりくん!?, Sutoppu!! Hibarikun!) is a gag manga by Hisashi Eguchi. Later, it was adapted into an anime by the same name.

It ran in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump from 1981-1983, when Eguchi decided to stop the series. Jump Comics has released all four volumes in Tankōbon (book) form. In 1983, Toei Animation made an anime series which ran on Fuji TV from 1983-1984.

The title is a reference to Hisashi Sekiya's "Stop Onii-chan".

Plot

A boy named Kousaku Sakamoto's mother has just died, and in her will she requests that Kousaku go and live with her friend Ibari Ohzora, who is a yakuza. He meets Ibari's four beautiful daughters, but the prettiest (Hibari) happens to have been born be a boy. Hibari falls in love with Kohsaku, and despite Kousaku showing some obvious uncertainties when he found out, it's obvious he fell for her as well.

Having both beauty and wit, she's the idol of her school. (As an interesting aside, Majima, Hibari's seiyuu, would later marry Furuya, the seiyuu for Hibari's love interest, Kousaku, in 1985. She retired from voice acting following the wedding.)
