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.
  • Canon Sue: Technically, the main protagonist always gets this position. But the most prominent example of this trope in the series is Edajima Heihachi himself in the prequel of his life.
  • God-Mode Sue: Okay, Edajima is a monstrous fighter, a Super Genius who can enter a high level university at the age of eleven, really good at getting a respect from other people, and he can copy anything, from Martial Arts, Boxing, and Pilloting after seeing it once. WHAT.
  • 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.
  • 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.
