Synopsis

Bouya Harumichi is a new transfer student to Suzuran all-boys high school, a place where only the worst delinquents assemble. Due to its large amount of delinquents who are hated by the general people for their inauspiciousness, similarly to crows, it is also known as "Crows High School."

Harumichi is an insanely strong fighter but has an irresponsible personality. How will he act in this new environment where everyone is a delinquent?

This OVA was actually impossible to find and considered "lost" until march of 2009 when it was finally unearthed, and its just what you'd expect from a crows anime adaptation.

STORY -

The story is a fairly accurate translation of the first 3 volumes of the manga so it holds up pretty well. The premise is generic, however it is very well executed and doesn't disappoint . It's funny and exciting but the pacing seemed off at times.

ART -

The animation is standard and a bit choppy sometimes but it holds up okay compared to other works of the time. The scenery and presentation are good. The read more

I first encountered this anime merely because it was listed in the criteria for the GAR achievement here on MAL, but I'm actually pretty glad I bothered to watch it and I'm sorta surprised that it doesn't seem like many other people have. I've not read the manga myself but I have actually heard of it, as well as the live action movie adaptations. Whatever, back to this OVA.

Story - 7
The story's pretty simple, and follows Bouya Harumichi as he starts at a new school, Suruzan Institute. It's known as the "school of crows" because the community hates the students---they're all thugs and delinquents that read more

Recommendations

Anime: Gokusen
Both animes about delinquents, although Gokusen is funnier with less fighting. I think they might even be set in the same area of Tokyo, since they both feature a really similar bridge.

Anime: Shonan Junai Gumi!
Both are 90s short OVA series that are adaptations of well known mangas about high school boy delinquents being dumb and badass.
