Souchirou Nagi and Bob Makihara are two delinquents who arrive at Toudou Academy with the objective of ruling over the school with their strength. But on their first day, they encountered the Jyuukenbu, a martial arts group of the school. Members of the group, Maya Natsume, her sister Aya, and Masataka Takayanagi easily overpowered Souchirou and Bob. And what's more, due to what was assumed to be their "connections" with the Jyuukenbu, the two were attacked by members of the Enforcement Group, which oversees the martial arts groups of the school. Drawn into the personal conflicts between the Jyuukenbu and the Enforcement Group, Souchirou and Bob have no choice but to join up with Maya Natsume's group and to hone their skills to become even stronger.
Welcome to the school of hard knocks!
Did You Know?
The title "Tenjho Tenge" is part of the full phrase "Tenjo Tenge yui ga doku son" which is translated to read: "There is no equal to me in this entire world." (i.e. below the heaven and on this earth).
The phrase is attributed to the Buddha Sakyamuni, who said this whilst taking seven steps immediately after being born, supposed to assert his unparalleled status. This relates to the mystical martial arts some fighters in the show possess. See more
