The "Diamond Delinquent" Akira Kongou transfers to Shiritsu Raimei High School and despite his insistence that he isn't a banchou (a Japanese student delinquent and gang leader), he quickly rises in the ranks of Shiritsu Raimei's gang until he becomes the leader. Now Akira takes part in schoolyard battles against the bullies and punks from the twenty-three neighboring schools.

It was entertaining to read but somehow the manga wash't cutting out how I expected to be so I decided to read some of Nakaba's other works until I stumbled upon one manga.
