In Japan, the country that inspired the slogan "Born to be Mild," the blood of young men still runs hot. In the old days they'd go off into the country and hack each other up with swords, but these days, what with school, that isn't very practical.

So some of them do something very un-Japanese. They strap on a big bike, roar around annoying people, and pound anyone they consider dishonorable.

Now meet Eguchi Yousuke, leader of a high-school Biker gang AND the school's handicrafts club. Which means he divides his time between fistfights and fancy needlework.

And if you think he's weird, wait until you meet the rest of his gang...

Before there was a great teacher named Onizuka or a school called Cromartie, before the crows of Suzuran battled it out or Kishidan held a one night carnival, and before Yankee-kun met Megane-chan or Oga Tatsumi found a naked baby by the river- there was a notorious bike gang called Shonan Bakusozoku. At first glance one might dismiss Shonan Bakusozoku as a generic 1980's anime. But to do so would be to overlook an extremely influential, fun and downright enlightening series.

Eguchi Yousuke is the second generation leader of the small, but infamous Shonan Bakusozoku bikers. The series revolves around read more
