A short film on a underrated manly battle shonen, Sakigake Otokojuku The Movie serves as an introduction to the series.

The film's plot is straight to the point as we have our leading characters embark on a journey to America to participate in the tournament known as Great Battle August. Half the film is an outrageous road trip while the 2nd half are 4 rounds of 1 on 1 fighting.

Not much can be learned from the characters by the movie alone aside from expressing manliness & the friendship they all shared on this short adventure. The only flaws to this film are the anti-climatic final ...

Mixed Feelings
This is a film based on a shounen jump manga and anime Sakigake Otokojuku
which follows a story of a gang of students going in an journey to win a challenge. This is a sequel from the tv show(which what they need is another
adaptation on god please) that only last 30 or 40 episodes.

Story: 5
So the gang has been chosen to participate a challenge which the school
has done it before. The challenge is surprisingly dangerous but Otokojuku is beg
to differ. The objective is to survive obstacles around the world.Comedic characters joined the gang so it would be much more fun

Art: 5
Weird how Fotns movie ...
