Souchirou 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.

Honestly i was kind of expecting a lot from this anime since the first 2 episodes had really epic fight scenes and what looked like room for character development. But the support characters became the main characters and the main characters became the support characters. 90% of this anime revolves around flash backs about Maya and Aya Natsumi's older brother Shin Natsumi. The fight scenes were epic i must say, story wise. No. There is no character development and for around 10+ episodes is straight flash backs which really bothered me because there was NOTHING on Souichirou Nagi and Bob, they kept getting their asses read more

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, read more

What a waste of time. I picked up this anime because I had read most of the manga, and was interested in seeing the characters of the manga brought to life. However, the anime did NOT bring the manga to life... it killed it.

This anime is best left on the shelf in the store, unless all you want to see is big boobs and panty shots, because, basically, that's what the anime comes down to. The story and plot are all over the place and does NOT follow the manga at all. There is no resolution, and you're left at read more

Note: I saw all 24 episodes including the 2 episode (OAV).

I feel I must redeem this anime from its horrible reviews. First off, I did not read the manga, so I can't comment on that, but for the most part this anime was really good. The story to me was relatively coherent and intriguing. The authors did a great job in intertwining all the main characters into the main plot giving each character a pretty good background story. The first episode in my opinion is just what I needed to really get me fired up. It was exciting and the fight scenes were well done. read more

Anime: Ikkitousen
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.

Anime: Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi
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.

Anime: Sekirei
Both series have female combatants. Sekirei is more fan serviced based.

Anime: Ikkitousen: Dragon Destiny
If you like Tenjou Tenge, you might like Ikkitousen (especially Dragon Destiny). Now, I know Ikkitousen has been recommanded to death, but Dragon Destiny has way more similarities with Tenjou Tenge and is way more recommandable than the first season: better production quality and they both have stories related to some kind of 'dragon eye'.

If you like Ikkitousen Dragon Destiny, you might like Tenjou Tenge. Same kind of story related to some kind of 'dragon eye' but with a slightly poorer production quality.

Anime: Ikkitousen: Xtreme Xecutor
This is almost the exact same concept, Ecchi Theme, lots of fighting. Ok plot.

Anime: Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Girls
After watching the first episode of the ass'n'tit fest that is Hyakka Ryouran, the first thing I thought was Tenjou Tenge & Ikkitousen(with Ikki already being recommended)

...for anyone looking for voluptuous women combating with little on, then both series will be eye candy for any ecchi enthusiast...
