Storyline

Souchirou Nagi and Bob Makihara are two delinquents who arrive at Toudou Academy with the objective of ruling over the school with their strength. But on their first day, they encountered the Jyuukenbu, a martial arts group of the school. Members of the group, Maya Natsume, her sister Aya, and Masataka Takayanagi easily overpowered Souchirou and Bob. And what's more, due to what was assumed to be their "connections" with the Jyuukenbu, the two were attacked by members of the Enforcement Group, which oversees the martial arts groups of the school. Drawn into the personal conflicts between the Jyuukenbu and the Enforcement Group, Souchirou and Bob have no choice but to join up with Maya Natsume's group and to hone their skills to become even stronger.

A Guilty Pleasure
5 February 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

When I first heard about the plot for this show I thought it would be a normal, nothing-too-fantastic anime, but now, it seems that I can't get enough. I thought I would check it out on the TV to see if it was any good. As I watched the opening, I started to tap my foot to the awesome opening song, "Bomb a Head" it made me want to keep watching.

As I watched, I was sucked in, it was highly addicting with all the fights. The first episode was a tad weird in some scenes, but overall it was very good. The story really picks up by the 5th episode. It has a great, captivating story that makes you want more. The story however is more of how the past affected the future, with close to 13 episodes telling the events of the past. The mystery of everyone's motives and backgrounds as well as the characters themselves really make up the show. The show only has 24 episodes but it has an OVA, which is 2 episodes and really ties up the loose ends.

The English dub is really well done. It has the voices of Wendee Lee (Faye from Cowboy Bebop) and Johnny Yong Bosch (Renton from Eureka seveN) and they do a fantastic job as their characters. Where I watch it, it is uncut, which means nothing is left out and you get everything. They also aired the two OVA episodes. Surprisingly, in Canada, the DVD sales for this show went up after the first week on TV, showing how many people enjoyed it.

I was really surprised by the show. I thought it would be a little boring, but it proved me wrong. The show has a lot of violence (blood, breaking of limbs), and mild nudity, but overall, it's a great show if you want something new to watch.
