YMMV: Sakigake!! Otokojuku
- Ass Pull: Wowzers! Gekko has been blind his whole life!
- Jinshou is a woman. Goddammit, Miyashita.
- Awesome Music The opening theme. Ending as well.
- Ensemble Darkhorse: Hien, no surprise here.
- Akashi, the head of the second-years who only appears in a handful of chapters, places surprisingly high in popularity polls.
- Edajime Heihachi is popular enough to get a prequel about him, and is definitely the character that the series is known for.
- Memetic Mutation: I AM THE PRINCIPAL OF OTOKOJUKU, EDAJIMA HEIHACHI!!!
- No Export for You: Only a few Asian countries get to read it. No wonder, though.
- So Bad, It's Good: The live-action movie, which was done in under two weeks and with a budget of $ 400,000. And yet despite the disjointed plot and B-movie hilarity, you couldn't help but admire the acting and sheer affection towards the source material.
