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?

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.

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

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.


Grappler Baki go through a deliniquent arc
You could make an argument Yu Yu Hakusho fits the description also

Rokudou's Bad Girls is my guilty pleasure.

Yankee JK KuzuHana-chan


Looks nice


We are in an era of "subversion bad!" era of media. Just look at all the shit you see in /tg/, /a/, /v/. Shaking things up is bad because it's reddit.


nerds have become terribly boring.


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.
also, related >>9823
