[[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 UsefulNotes/{{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 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!"
