Sakigake Otokojuku is the world's MANLIEST school where students refine their manhood in the most masculine & over the top way possible! That's the gist of it but it can offer more to those who already acquired MANIME tastes. For example if you're a fan of Fist Of The North Star, then Otokojuku pays a huge tribute to the series in terms of action & character designs.

If you're not a fan of masculine shows then there might not be much to offer but I'll offer some insight. The story follows the schools newly appointed 1st years where our main cast consists of Momotaro, Togashi, read more

Sakigake!! Otokojuku Review
Now I understand that this isn't Fist of North Star which you can obviously see the resemblance and is also most likely the reason Toei decided to pick up this series to do an anime adaptation for because they were obviously trying to create another Fist of the North Star so it's not surprising if this was their plan.


Story (5/10) Average

Long end short: if you got a laugh out of reading Hokuto no Ken, you might wanna avoid sticking to this series. On the other hand, being a passionate fan of HnK will leave you thoroughly entertained by this strange 80's comedy homage.

If you're a fan of ridiculously old-school series that come off as being written by crotchety old Japanese men who value honor and justice to a point of social ridicule (mixed with a dash of admiration), Otokojuku might be a good pick for you. Riding the Hokuto wave of the mid-80's, Otokojuku is essentially a high-school comedy variant of Hokuto, aiming for a read more

Overview:

I have only recently discovered this little "gem" that was buried in the depths of terrible 1980s macho anime that followed in the wake of Hokuto no Ken. This is the crown jewel of terrible! It might even be worse than MD Geist, only it doesn't have the same level of infamy because famous internet critics have ignored this one.

Story and characters: 1/10

The main character Momo is a blatant Kenshiro ripoff and the only story is that there is a highschool for juvenile delinquents where fights break out at random and everyone is a badass. This is the series that the more famous Sakigake Cromartie read more
