Transfer student Manabizaki Kyou is a swot, a person who spends too much time studying. His dream is to attend Tokyo University and then work for NASA! He will soon discover, however, that the high school he's transferred into, which was once very prestigious, has taken in delinquents from the surrounding schools. Now it is full of violence and gang fights.

Luckily, Manabizaki has a surprising skill at fighting, particularly when he's defending the peace of his study area. Through this strength he'll find his new friends, a weak boy called Iwashida and a legendary delinquent girl, Hasuno Nene, who makes him feel things that, for the first time in his life, he can't explain...

A swot is apparently a person who studies a lot, but that doesn't matter it's just a trait of the main character that makes him annoying. This series goes for a tradition shonen read more

Shounen series about delinquents and school life. Plenty of comedy and plenty of fights.
Both series are highly comedic school series about delinquents with a great deal of fighting, a moderate amount of studying, and a rather hefty character roster for the chapter count.
