For some people, high school represents the opportunity for a fresh start. You can take new classes and make new friends. For Souichiro Nagi and Bob Makihara, though, high school means something different: the chance to become the top fighters in the entire student body! Too bad Toudou Academy is the hardest possible place to realize their dreams. Their new high school is no ordinary academic institution. Rather than concentrating on classic subjects like math and science, Toudou Academy was created for the sole purpose of reviving the martial arts in Japan!

As a result, Souichiro's aspirations to become top dog are cut short when he runs afoul of Masataka Takayanagi and Maya Natsume. The two upperclassmen easily stop the freshmen duo's rampage across school, but rather than serving as a deterrent, it only stokes their competitive fire. What kind of monstrous fighters attend Toudou Academy? Are there any stronger than Masataka and Maya? And why in the world is Maya's younger sister stalking Souichiro? Learn the answers to these questions and more in Tenjou Tenge!

Besides the fact that it reminds me that hideous JoJo art-style sometimes… it has a solid animation and a well written plot.

The first episodes were kinda boring and I was trying so hard not to sleep while watching but later on it became enjoyable.
The main plot focus on the past of the characters in such smart way and besides having many cultured scenes it’s kinda touching…
The last episodes were kinda eh and it’s ending was vague, it probably continues in the manga.

Overall… I came here because of air gear (manga) and it has that same sprinkle of nonsense but oh..! great art. I kinda want ...

Mixed Feelings
"Tenjō Tenge" is something that I really enjoyed as teenager. The show's vivid cast of characters were bright and nearly popped through the television screen, with their vivacity! It had cool fight scenes, pretty girls, unrequited love, dramatic backstories, etc. But, let's be real, I think I was mostly into it because I thought Maya Natsume was a total babe! While Tenjō Tenge's target demographic will most-likely be a teenage audience, who plays rounds of beat 'em up games with their siblings, "Tenjō Tenge" sets itself apart—with a cacophony of interesting narrative choices and entertaining character antics!

Started out quite interesting. Had alot of potential. The art is decent. the ending song is pretty nice. the opening is whacky and doesn't fit the anime but it's okay.
After a few episodes they start doing flashbacks and I was hoping to find out the characters motivations, the backstory, what a delight. well no.

The backstory just makes me hate the characters.
It's interesting in it's own way but just raises more questions than it answers. and the last episode is the most rushed episode i have ever seen ever. it made me facepalm and laugh at how ridiculous it was. Overrall it had ...
