In one unusual Tokyo high school, education takes a backseat to brawling as warring clubs wreak havoc in the hallways and chaos in the classrooms, all vying to be the baddest team around! Although they often contribute their fair share, only a handful of students serve to stem the tide of violence in this untamed outpost. These are the few, the proud, the powerful: the members of the Juken Club!

Tenjou Tenge was first published in English as Tenjho Tenge by DC Comics under the CMX imprint. The CMX release came under heavy criticism by fans for editing and censoring the sexual content. 18 volumes were released from March 1, 2005 to September 8, 2009 before CMX shut down. VIZ Media republished the series uncut as Tenjo Tenge: Full Contact Edition in 2-in-1 omnibuses under the VIZ Signature imprint from June 21, 2011 to February 5, 2013. It was also published in Italian by Panini Comics from September 2001 to August 25, 2011.

Tenjo Tenge is probably one of the most high quality fighting manga out there that not too many people have read.

Mixed Feelings
I first started the manga by watching the anime which caught my eye due to its great opening(not always the best way to judge the series...)

It had some good moments, but I just couldn't focus on the plot afterwards due to a bit of fanservice and a huge amount of flashback present throughout the whole thing. I thought that it was mainly because the anime present the story wrong which was why I went to the manga.

Apparently the manga had even more flashbacks and to make matters work, it keeps going back the different periods of the past while pulling the reader by to the ...

You can have a simple and fun martial arts action story with tons of nudity and violence with a high school backdrop. Or you can have a darker adult-oriented narrative, where the characters are dealing with great supernatural threats in a constantly deepening plot filled with twists and turns. You can't have it both ways. This is Tenjou Tenge's biggest downfall. It's an impossible mixture of things that just don’t blend.

A lot of the characters that the story fools you into becoming invested in are eventually tossed to the sidelines or reduced to mere spectators until the very end where the series hastily tries to ...
