Suzuran is a school where the misfits of society congregate. Known as "Crows," the students lack a promising future; they establish their place in the world only by using their fists. In this violent culture, physical strength remains the be-all and end-all amongst the teenagers with nothing else to live for. Suzuran maintains its set hierarchy, but such a system fails to unite all involved in a common goal. While there are those at the top, Suzuran has no single leader.

Enter Harumichi Bouya, an unethical teenager with little intellectual capability. As a typical delinquent, Harumichi loves to fight and takes on any adversity with his physical prowess. Now at Suzuran, Harumichi aims to prove himself and reach the very top of the vicious society he has been thrust into.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Crows has been published in Spanish by ECC Comics since April 30, 2014.

Crows is about Bouya Harumichi, a second-year transfered to Suzuran, a highschool full of delinquants. By becoming the number one of the school, he meet others gangs from other highschools.

Not much to say about this work, it is consistent, all arcs are well structured, the fights are well done and fair, the protagonist has his motivations and is very charismatic, drama is not difficult to understand and how I said before it works and delivers what it promises. It's definitely my favorite ...

crows is an exceptional manga, my first time reading it, it was just about highschool delinquents fighting, after reading it i felt empty, surprisingly though, it's still just a highschool deliquent fighting manga. why is it exceptional then?

the story is pretty simple throughout the whole story, but it manages to keep you hooked, crows is the type of manga that isn't about the story as much as it is about fights, characters and surprising moments that are able to make you reflect about pretty much anything.

about the art, while i do feel that the art improves as the manga advances, it's great since the ...
