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.

Trivia

The title "Tenjho Tenge" is part of the full phrase "Tenjo Tenge yui ga doku son" which is translated to read: "There is no equal to me in this entire world." (i.e. below the heaven and on this earth).

The phrase is attributed to the Buddha Sakyamuni, who said this whilst taking seven steps immediately after being born, supposed to assert his unparalleled status. This relates to the mystical martial arts some fighters in the show possess. See more »

Pointless anime
18 September 2006 | by fearless2003See all my reviews

A very bad anime. The question I was asking myself while watching this was, why are these kids fighting? There's really no reason given. Just a lot of meaningless violence. I've got no problems with violence in anime as long as there's some reason or explanation given for it. A lot of ridiculous trash talking and drama that's supposed to make these characters 'noble', really just ends up sounding silly. The plus is that the animation is really good. But it hardly makes up for the lack of real story... Sure there's a long back story behind the characters, but it really gives no purpose to the fights. In DBZ the characters have clear motivations. Goku wants to become stronger, always looking for stronger opponents. Vegeta wants to surpass Goku. The kids in this anime fight each other to the brink of death, all for what? I have no clue.
