Storyline

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.

Trivia

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 »

Really good!
27 August 2016 | by fowlerstormSee all my reviews

I loved this so much! This was my first anime I had taken real interest in and id highly rate it to anyone who wants to enjoy a good, well made anime. At parts it may lack a little depth but if you consider when this anime was made and the details that surrounds it, it can easily be overlooked. The characters are all unique and bring their spice this anime and makes that more enjoyable. Fight sequences, humour and action all tie in with one another very well and when watching this makes you forget everything around you, it really does suck you in. Some parts were unnecessarily signalized but then you remember its an anime and you come to terms with that. All in all it really is a must watch it keeps your attention and is visually pleasing, for all those casual anime watchers id recommend it, for all those die hard anime watchers id recommend it.
