[[caption-width-right:180:The boys!]]

''Mingamanga'' is a German... no, just to specify this, Bavarian comic written by Robert Platzgummer. It's about four boys living in Munich, occasionally fighting, but finally sticking together and having fun. Some of their adventures were published in the comic magazine [[http://www.comicaze.de Comicaze]] from Munich, also known for ''ComicStrip/CaptnCrazy''.

!! This comic provides examples of:

* AsianAndNerdy: Subverted, Vinnie is Vietnamese but otherwise not at all like that cliche.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Korbinian ("Bini") is a Music/HeavyMetal fan and has the hair. Also, the teacher mistakes "Korbinian" for "Korbinia".
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Just half of it. The comic is set in Munich ("Minga" in Bavarian), but it's not manga-like at all.
* FiveTokenBand: One Bavarian from the countryside, one Turk, one black African, and one Vietnamese.
* HairTriggerTemper: Staffie
* MistakenNationality: On Korbinian's first day in school, the teacher mistakes him not only for a girl, but a Pole. Reasons: His last name Panikowski (because of a great-grandfather who was a soldier from Prussia who stayed in Bavaria), his thick dialect which renders his home village Kleinbierbach to "Kloabirboch", which is mistaken for "Globirbow", which sounds Polish indeed.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Their real names are Korbinian, Mustafa, Vinh Ngoc and Daniel. They're almost always called Bini, Staffie, Vinnie and Bo.
* ShoutOut
** When a Turkish song is played at Staffie's house, the author "helpfully" provides German subtitles. Which are really a {{Mondegreen}} by {{Coldmirror}}.
** The boys go to the KarlValentin-Gymnasium.
* UnfortunateNames: Mustafa's last name is Süzer, which sounds much like "Süßer" (sweetie).
* TheUnintelligible: Bini, despite being the only native German of the four boys. Mustafa lampshades it: "And they tell ''me'' I have to learn German!"
* VisualPun: "Kruzifix!"
