Delinquents/yankii/banchou/sukeban are so fucking cool.

I wanted to get into delinquent manga from the 70s-80s starting with Sakigake!! Otokojuku. I torrented the whole manga's raws to practice my Japanese, as well, but I could never get around to reading it.
Likewise, even though it's not 2D (but it is adapted from manga) I torrented all of Sukeban Deka and could never watch more than 1 episode.
Unfortunately, I lost them both when my laptop broke.

Could you please recommend more delinquent stuff? Even if it's just one character in a series that's not about delinquents. If there's something like a rec chart that'd be pretty cool. If, not, we could make one.

I'm actually surprised there's no discussion of delinquent anime and manga on this board. I'd expect this genre would be popular among leftists.


Why yes I'm into delinquent girls.


Never change power ranking autists. I disagree with almost all placements on this chart.
It would've been excellent as a list without the tiering nonsense.

Guy on the right is either a very nice person or a serial killer.

Here's a reminder to check out these two video games about Japanese delinquents.
Justice Gakuen (AKA Rival Schools), a 3D fighter by Capcom, and Kenka Banchou, a beat 'em up franchise, of which only the 3rd game for the PSP has been released in English.

Beware the nice ones, or so they say. This is from the live-action Aoi Haru movie.

Looks brutal. Thanks for the rec

Thanks for the chart. Now I think I've actually seen it before, but I forgot. Do I need to read/watch a lot of delinquent stuff to be able to fully appreciate Cromartie High School?


File: 1621685705063.jpg (Spoiler Image, 126.61 KB, 500x709, whatawaytodie.jpg)

Not nearly as brutal as the alternative version, but its a yakuza manga, not deliquent so not for this thread.


still related imo


you should read bakkuon rettou


Ok, since I'm now phoneposting this is the one I ended up opening in my browser. So I'm gonna read it first. Thanks


Akira is still the best delinquent story.


What makes Akira a delinquent story?


From beginning to end it's about kids opposing authority.


That doesn't make it a delinquent anime. Sure, rebelliousness is a big part of delinquent media, but there's much more to it. It's also about having style and enjoying youth while you can. It's a really down to earth genre. If Akira was less focused on the psychic science fiction war stuff, and more on the protagonist hanging out with his friends and riding those cool bikes around that shitty city while avoiding the cops like we see in the beginning of the movie, then it could be considered a delinquent anime.


File: 1621745533718.png (1.58 MB, 1438x2048, 1621743461589.png)

Delinquents sure have turned into pussies.


I was more referencing the mange. The movie doesn't really channel the delinquency much after Tetsuo gets psychic powers.


Well i haven't read the manga so i can't judge.


Did anyone mention Zankyou no Terror yet?
Its pretty neat


Haven't they always been kind of like that though?
I'm reading about it right now, but it doesn't look like it fits the genre either. Although that doesn't mean I'm not gonna watch it, of course.


The Manga in picrel is fucking trash man. Started off strong, but got stale quickly. Just another cookie cutter shonen. Sure seems like shonen are just pumped out after the same formula nowadays. Not a hunterfag, but back then authors actually dared to change up the shonen formula abit


>but it doesn't look like it fits the genre either
Maybe i dont understand the genre but I would have assumed beeing a terrorist is the highest stage of delinquint

As i said, rebelliousness is a big part of delinquent media, but there's much more to it.


when we talk about "Japanese delinquents" we mean this specific kind >>7735
even if they don't commit any crime, they're considered "delinquents", for example if they skip classes or get into fights with one another, but usually there's also a subculture/aesthetic/attitude involved


File: 1621913217729.jpg (165.84 KB, 580x854, 1606518979759.jpg)

I remember when Yandere Kanojo was still running and everyone on /a/ wanted a cute delinquent gf. One of those few manga where the romance IS the plot and not something that happens in the last few chapters; the confession is chapter 1.

Joseph Joestar is a delinquent

That he is, but Jotaro is a "proper" Japanese delinquent along with Josuke and Okuyasu.


>proper delinquent


What do you mean


Mean? It's an expression of reaction, like mirth or surprise. As to why: A delinquent is generally a rule breaker and so does not typically behave "proper" or in other words with manners, which makes the use of the two words so close together sound a little oxymoronic.


File: 1630391265869.jpg (194.86 KB, 1283x1280, 1621142828891.jpg)

Oh, I get it now, I made an accidental pun. I thought you meant that Jotaro isn't a real delinquent and were laughing at me.


Yep, I didn't mean to sound mocking.


Would the main two characters of Slayers Return count? They're kind a delinquent in their behaviour.


If they're not cool Japanese high school students, they don't count


Does he count as one?


I'd say yes, definitely, even though he's not a student.

lol wtf this sucks bad


Here's a (you).

I hate jojofags so much, also

cool pic though


>Muh Jojo reference
uygha relax its a meme, literally the "is that a Jojo reference"
>anime Jojo


I mean that after the Part 3 anime dropped all the jojotards did parodies using the anime designs intead of the manga ones. Effective way to spot an animeonly.


uygha I never read the manga or seen the anime, I literally posted a common meme.


I read Ichi The Killer recently thinking this panel was in it but it wasn't, so what is it?


My first reply wasn't directed at you but at the artist, dude. Don't take it personally.


Caulifla from Dragon Ball Super runs a small gang and is a total delinquent.


Also a Tomboy



it's the manga ichi the killer is sequel to. it's just called "ichi"

That seems to be the case! I had already added Midori Days to my watchlist because of that. I love funny/cute yankii too.


Osu!! Karate-bu is a benchmark of the (sub)genre


Ah ok, no problemo


Joe is one of the first shonen protagonists


That’s technically because he skipped the highschool arc and went straight to juvenile prison island lol


Thank you for the good contribution.
I fucking love this kenny lauderdale guy and his videos on 80s anime but especially the ones on delinquent stuff. Even more specifically, the sukeban stuff:

"The original Kill la Kill"

"This was really popular in the 80s"

"She only used dynamite like one time ok?"

"The show that ended a genre"

What's up with the more clickbait-y video titles lately though? I don't remember that.


"Youtube Reviewers" can't "analyze" anything without comparing it with other media.


I wouldn't say that guy is a "reviewer", rather he just talks about obscure Japanese shows and trivia related to it. Since you replied this quickly, I doubt you watched a single one of those videos.


>rather he just talks about obscure Japanese shows and trivia related to it
That's a youtube reviewer.

>I doubt you watched a single one of those videos.

That doesn't even change what I said.


>That doesn't even change what I said.
Yeah it does. That youtuber doesn't do analysis and his videos aren't meant to be critical. And since what he's talking about is part of a genre, it has to be compared with other media that is part of that genre.


zoomers cant talk about anything without using a youtuber as a proxy for their opinions, i wish theyd stop polluting anime boards

>without using a youtuber as a proxy for their opinions
<muh zoomer
<muh animu bord
you're a retard and fallacious, you are the polluter
>That's a youtube reviewer
No, no it is not; a review isn't the same as an overview anon.
>doesn't even change what I said
Your statement doesn't mean anything and is not correct - many of his videos do not directly refer to any other media except in direct relation to the media he is talking about at the moment. Moreover, media are not made in a vacuum and are relevant to other media of the past or present in analysis.

Ya welcome m8


>using a youtuber as a proxy for their opinions
I use this youtuber to find out about obscure 80s anime that very few people talk about, nothing more. How about you watch the videos before posting something irrelevant?

Yeah it feels like /anime/ is more active tonight but it's especially shitty right now too. What's with these angry fags who only come here to complain?


>What's with these angry fags who only come here to complain
I think it's /pol/, they come around at times and bitch about inane things, pretending to be /a/ purists.


This is more of a parody of the genre, but I think it counts.


File: 1644555515486.jpg (205.8 KB, 1275x921, freddie.jpg)

of course it counts


I'm watching this anime right now
loving it so far, lol'd many times


But why tho?

Bungo Stray Dogs sort of fits this, it has delinquents as characters.

Based thread, needs more love. This thread pisses off Japanese conservatives and the yakuza, which makes me very happy.
>still related imo
We do not shill for the lumpenbourgeoisie and their henchmen in this holy thread.



Can you recommend me some anti-capitalist/anti-corporatocratic/anti-yakuza banchou manga? I want to stick it to the yakuza by reading manga in my apartment in a different country, that'll show 'em who's the boss of the gym.

Ideally I want to see a banchou massacreing all the yakuza. All of them. Total yakuza death.


>>23321 (me)
Kill the yakuza. Behead the yakuza. Roundhouse kick a yakuza into the concrete. Slam dunk a yakuza baby into the trashcan. Crucify filthy yakuza. Defecate in a yakuza's food. Launch the yakuza into the sun. Stir fry the yakuza in a wok. Toss the yakuza into active volcanos. Urinate into a yakuza's gas tank. Judo throw the yakuza into a wood chipper. Twist the yakuza's heads off. Report the yakuza to the NTA. Karate chop the yakuza in half. Curb stomp pregnant yakuza wives. Trap the yakuza in quicksand. Crush the yakuza in the trash compactor. Liquefy the yakuza in a vat of acid. Eat the yakuza. Dissect the yakuza. Exterminate the yakuza in the gas chamber. Stomp the yakuza's skulls with steel toed boots. Cremate the yakuza in the oven. Lobotomize the yakuza. Mandatory abortions for the yakuza. Grind the yakuza fetuses in the garbage disposal. Drown the yakuza in fried chicken grease. Vaporize the yakuza with a ray gun. Kick the old yakuza down the stairs. Feed the yakuza to alligators. Slice the yakuza with a katana.




Obviously the delinquent is in "rebellion" to normal society to some level but in the popular media of Japan at least it seems that usually the delinquency is temporary and the delinquent eventually becomes respectable. Although from anecdotal recollections that I have read online even the actual real-life delinquents didn't really get into much significant crime ‌‌‌‌‍‌but mostly small fights and other more innocent stuff, such as theft of ⁣school‌‌‌‌⁢‍⁣ ‌‌‌‌‬⁣‌‌‌‌⁢‍‌supplies,‌‌‌‌⁢‬‍ ‌‌‌‌‌‬‌‌‌‌⁢‍⁣deviation ‌‌‌‌‬⁣‌‌‌‌⁢‍‌‌‌‌‌⁢‬‍‌‌‌‌‌‬‌‌‌‌⁢‍⁣for‌‌‌‌‬⁣‌‌‌‌⁢‍‌‌‌‌‌⁢‬‍‌‌‌‌‌‬ ‌‌‌‌⁢‍⁣‌‌‌‌‬⁣‌‌‌‌⁢‍‌‌‌‌‌⁢‬‍others ‌‌‌‌‌‬‌‌‌‌⁢‍⁣whom‌‌‌‌‬⁣‌‌‌‌⁢‍‌ ‌‌‌‌⁢‬‍‌‌‌‌‌‬‌‌‌‌⁢‍⁣were‌‌‌‌‬⁣ ‌‌‌‌⁢‍‌in need.
Anyways, recs:
Sukeban Deka is quite of course classic.
Ore-sama Teacher is so far quite hilarious, and the mains who are presumably coupled are somewhat reminiscent‌‌‌‌‬‍‌‌‌‌‬⁣‍‌‌‌‌⁢‬‍ ‌‌‌‌‬⁣‍‌‌‌‌‌‬‌‌‌‌‬⁣‍‌‌‌‌⁢‌‬of‌‌‌‌‬⁣⁣‌‌‌‌‌‬‌‌‌‌‬‍‌‌‌‌‬‬‌‌‌‌⁢‍⁢‌‌‌‌⁢‌‬‌‌‌‌‌‬‌‌‌‌‬⁢‌‌‌‌‬‌‌‌‌‌‌‬‌‌‌‌⁢‍‬‌‌‌‌‬‬‌‌‌‌‬⁣‌‌‌‌⁢‬‍‌‌‌‌‌‬‌‌‌‌⁢‍‌‌‌‌‬⁣‌‌‌‌⁢‍‌‌‌‌‌‬⁣‌‌‌‌‌‬‌‌‌‌⁢‍‬‌‌‌‌⁢‍‍‌‌‌‌⁢‍⁢‌‌‌‌⁢‌‬‌‌‌‌‬⁣⁣‌‌‌‌‬⁣‌‌‌‌⁢‍‌‌‌‌‌‬⁣ .
Cromartie High School is also quite funny, and even has been adapted for the movie theatre.‌‌‌‌‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‍‍‌‌‌‌‌ ‬‬‌‌‌‌‌‬‬‌‌‌‌‬⁣‌‌‌‌‌‬‌‌‌‌‍‌⁢‌‌‌‌‍‌⁢‌‌‌‌‬‍‌‌‌‌⁢‍⁢‌‌‌‌‬‌‌‌‌‬⁣
<if you think about it perhaps
Would Huckleberry Finn, in the book with his name titular, count as one character that is delinquent, on the question of "delinquent" media? He persists in his delinquency even at the conclusion of the narrative. That is perhaps more the mature demographics' sort of delinquents' tale, arguably, which is written for the function of serious critique.


And then he gets reintegrated into soyciety and they live happily ever after under wage slavery. The end.


>in the popular media of Japan at least it seems that usually the delinquency is temporary and the delinquent eventually becomes respectable
Precisely, the Japanese are too cucked by hierarchical institutions to tolerate any genuine rebels, the polar opposite of Americans. I keep seeing this shit and it pisses me off.
>Would Huckleberry Finn, in the book with his name titular, count as one character that is delinquent, on the question of "delinquent" media?


We really need to find a better translation because "delinquent" is misleading, in my opinion. Most of them are just kids who want to have fun before becoming adults.


Yes, it's called "lumpen" or "gangster." But the so-called "Japanese delinquents" are actually called "yankii" and "bosozoku" (the ones who use motorcycles). Yankii are just Japanese criminals who aren't part of a yakuza clan and have a distinct uniform like that of Jotaro Kujo because they often start their criminal lifestyle in high school.


>>23484 (me)
Yankii mimick the customs of the yakuza and yet they don't want to join them for one reason or another. They're also ruder and more aggressive than the yakuza (the "idiot from Osaka" stereotype) while the yakuza are more "trad" if you will. Yankii are more "punk."


>>23486 (me)
Man, people in Kanzai are way more fun than those boring Tokyo prudes.


Kansai is so much better than Tokyo that it's not even funny. The Western coalition should have won at Sekigahara.
I think they're more similar to hooligans than to straight up criminals.


"Hooligan criminals."

I think it's a spectrum. Some are legit criminals, just not the yakuza ones. The most important aspect of them is their strong ties within their gangs unlike more atomized lawbreakers, a trait they took from the yakuza.

Some interesting videos about Delinquents in Japan, the history, some basic way of speaking etc.

>Talking Like a Japanese Delinquent




>The romanticism of delinquents in Japanese Media


In a way one can conclude that Sukeban and Delinquent culture, was Japan's equivalent of Punk counter-culture and rebels, and similarly were romanticized in anime. I'll upload the videos as files later.


File: 1712011790448.png (2.04 MB, 1100x1564, ClipboardImage.png)

Sukeban to Tenkousei is a small Slice of Life manga about a Transfer Student and Delinquent girl.


File: 1712012017148.png (1.44 MB, 466x1280, ClipboardImage.png)

Honestly I think there may be more Sukeban works than Delinquent works and most of either are live action such as Sukeban: Taiman Shobu (1974).

It seems most of those stories also tended to come out in the 70s and 80s, with them being relegated to background stereotypes in later works as the subcultures died out.
