SynopsisSouchirou 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.

Summary: Tenjou Tenge: The Past Chapter
Characters & Voice Actors
Tenjou Tenge a typical shounen anime that takes all the concepts that worked well in other shounen anime and puts it into a High School setting. Tenjo Tenge is basically about two delinquent boys; Souichiro and Bob who enter a school hoping to take it over, like their previous schools but problems occur and then the story turns into a quest to become stronger. Even though this plot (to become stronger) is not the least bit original, the story does become very interesting when it reaches the extremely long flashback, revealing a lot about certain characters. However soon after this flashback arc the story finishes, leaving a lot of questions unanswered and half the story untold.
This isn't the only downfall of this anime. The animation quality is okay for the most part although for an anime with plenty of fighting, the quality of the fights is sub-standard. Instead of transforming the intense fights from the manga into fluid animation, all that's produced are static images of impact that just looked like a page straight out from the manga, which is definitely below the level of animation of it's time. If more effort was put into the numerous fight scenes then I would have given it a much better score.
The music ranges between really bad and sublime. There are times when the music is so great, with string instrumentals making the average fight seem more intense. Then there are moments when the music is just plain awful, like the deafening ending theme song "Ashite ne moto".
Overall this anime did a great job in adapting the superb manga story however it only told half the story, leaving major plot changes and character developments untold. The way it chose to end was poor, with an extremely stupid finale which followed a sad and exciting episode… bad idea. If only this anime does the same thing as others like Full Metal Panic, and make a sequel that looks 10x better than the original. Well at least with the story it has, it was able to portray Action, Drama and Comedy well. So if that's what you're looking for then this is the show for you.

Tenjou Tenge, the first fight is a must watch. It was full badass and one of the most epic beat downs I have seen.
After the first episode I expected something big from this anime, but I was disappointed. Firstly I believe that the main character should have been Takayanagi.Though most shounen anime have strong idiotic protagonists, Souichiro just isn't very likeable maybe because he's cocky.
Secondly the villain does not look cool at all. In fact he looks homosexual. But there was one stage in his past that he was decent looking. The flashbacks was just way too long, about 10 episodes and this was not necessary. If you seperated the flashback arc from the anime, the two alone could have been very enjoyable.
Lastly the opening. Wow I love it. Very colourful and energetic. It gets your heart pumping perfect for a workout song.
Thats all I have to say. Worth watching if you have nothing better to do.
And for those of you who have already watched the anime, I feel so sorry for Shin. Whenever he tries to do something good, someone is always in his way. And Bunshichi is my favourite character. His fight against Shin was very good too . read more
Ikkitousen is the same genre of anime as Tenjou Tenge. They both are heavily based on the martial arts and ecchi genre with a bit of the superpower genre tossed in as well. Although Ikkitousen has more ecchi and a proper ending.
lots of fighting...lots of ecchi...
Tenjou Tenge have more fighting
Ikkitousen have more ecchi
Ikkitousen is a cheap rip off of Tenjou Tenge with more ecchi, if that's possible. Tenjou Tenge is definitely a better anime, and more serious.
If you like Tenjou Tenge because of its super smash brawling action, courtesy of Nagi and the Natsume sisters, then Ikkitousen's Sonsaku Hakufu and her subordinates won't disappoint you.
Hot, fighting girls ;)
Fights, Sexy girls, cool guys, breats and tangas xD
Both feature a ton of action, a lot of fan service, and both share a fairly ridiculous storyline.... Need I say more?
they both involve FIGHTING in SCHOOL as well as an ECCHI factor (well not as much)
i guess that's it... nothing else to say...
Fighting and fanservice!
Ikkitousen is the raunchier of the two, though.
Both take place in high schools where marshal arts are the center of all things. Also, the characters in both series posses supernatural powers that enhance their marshal arts.
These two are a couple of maybe the best fighting anime of all times.
The settings are similar - high school with martial arts/fighting focus. There's a lot of action, drama, and fanservice, although I personally would recommend Tenjho Tenge over Ikki Tousen simply because it has better fight scenes.
School Life, Comedy , Ecchi , Fights all looks the same ;p
Both are filled with tons of ecchi, "high school" kids fighting each other over respect and territory, and tons of girls with over the top... well you know. In the end, while Ikkitousen seems to focus on fan service and nothing else, Tenjou Tenge actually has a story worth paying attention to, as well as characters that don't have stereotypical personalities.
This is pretty much the same anime to me but Tenjou Tenge was way better. You should still enjoy this one though if you like Tenjou Tenge as it is the same type of fighting and theory in the anime.
Episodes revolves around combat conflicts
Main female character is a dimwit supported by a hardworking but average fighter male character
feels the same when watching both
lots of female characters fighting
both have martial arts based fighting
They both have strong girls, a lot of fights, and some perverted scenes.
matrial arts and big boobs
Same type of story. Main character is a weakling that joins a school that has fighting clubs and gangs that like to test out the new freshmen to see how strong they are. Main character gets picked on and joins a dojo to get stronger. He ends up getting hunted down by the local gang and has to protect him self. Full of comedy just like Tenjou Tenge.
Quite similar. Cool fighting.Good looking babes.
Both shows are about training and getting stronger.
Kenichi is a weakling and bullied by everyone, so he wants to become stronger.
In Tenjou Tenge is quite different: Souichiro and Bob are delinquents who controlled 100 school. However, they are accepted by a school where most of the students are martial artists who could easily beat Souichiro and Bob, so they start training...
They both are about fighting and the hardwork goes into becoming a master. they both have amazing fighting sceans and sort of the same type of humor.
Similar storyline: Guy meets a beautiful girl with deadly martial arts skills, and trains with them to become stronger. One difference between the two animes is that Tenjou Tenge is more serious and violent. Not as funny as History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi too...
Tenjou Tenge - Soichiro nagi is a dedelinquent who wants to rule his school.
Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi - While Kenichi Shirahama is a boy who has been picked on his whole life (so they're image are kinda opposite)
1. They are both about martial arts
2. Both main characters start off as kind of as weak, comparing them to the other martial artists
3. Both main characters meet a mysterious girl
