Top Ten Less Serious Delinquent Manga, Manwha, and Manhua

This list will mostly consist of delinquent manga that are similar to Crows other dark delinquent manga that focus on the more serious and depressing side of delinquency. These manga will be full of action, laughs and overall good times.

The Top Ten

1 Kyou Kara Ore Wa

KKOW! is a story of two boys who move schools and decide to take this opportunity to start their school lives from scratch. This manga has some great action scenes but it's mostly a comedy manga, don't let that discourage you from reading it though it makes up for it by having a colorful cast of unique and entertaining characters that will easily keep you engaged in the story.

If you do end up enjoying KKOW! I highly recommend the authors other works. Nishimori Hiroyuki is easily one of my top ten mangakas and he has written one other delinquent manga by the name of Ochanigosu - TheSeventh

2 Clover

Misaki Hayato returns to his hometown after the death of his grandfather, his last living relative other than his estranged mother. Upon his return he attempts to reconnect with his two childhood friends who are acting distant to one another. Not long after Misaki gets involved with the two things slowly start going back to the way they were before he left and he and his friends get into all kinds of trouble that ends up being resolved through the typical shounen brawl. It's a pretty good fight manga and a decent comedy at times too - TheSeventh

3 A-Bout!

Mistumine High School is famous for having the most juvenile delinquents in the country. A school so violent and unruly that the students rule the classrooms and make the rules. Teachers are powerless to do anything about the rampant fighting and inner gang conflicts, things couldn't get any worse.

But then things did, after the new student Asagiri transfers in he causes massive upheaval in the schools food chain and shows no regard for the laws and ways of the school causing nothing but power struggles and constant problems that even the schools head will soon have to involve himself in.

The action in this manga is awesome and the comedy is pretty great too, unfortunately it seems like any translations for it have stopped and the latest chapter you can read up to is 38 out of a complete 165 chapters and to my knowledge there isn't any official English versions of this manga. - TheSeventh

4 Yankee-kun to Megane-chan

A cute comedy/romance manga about current delinquent Shinigawa and former delinquent/current class rep Adachi. I don't want to give away too much since a lot of the plot requires you to go in blind to be able to fully enjoy it but trust me it's worth it.

And yes, their is action and it's good. - TheSeventh

5 Angel Densetsu

Angel Densetsu is about normal boy who can't seem to avoid being mistaken for a delinquent thanks to his unfortunately evil face, any time he tries to clear up any misunderstandings he ends up accidentally taking out "rival" delinquents when trying to make amends with them or while trying to help them. This manga is a classic but it seems a lot of current manga readers today don't seem to know of it. - TheSeventh

6 Sugarless

This manga is pretty much following the same set up as A-Bout! but it has a more serious tone, the fight scenes are great and the comedy is alright. There's not really much to be said about this manga other than it's good, if you have the time I definitely recommend you read it, especially if you love delinquent manga. - TheSeventh

7 Midori No Hibi

One day Seiji the strongest delinquent at school wakes up to find his right hand has been replaced with a girl who is madly in love with him. Do you really need to know anymore to get interested in this? - TheSeventh

8 Hareluya II Boy

There's not really much to say about this manga either,you just kind of have to read it to get it. It's just pretty far out there compared to everything else on this list (except for Midori No Hibi)nbut it's pretty damn good. - TheSeventh

9 Rokudou No Onna-Tachi

Rokudou is a loser, and everyone knows it. He gets picked on at school, gets snide looks from passersby, and can only muster up the courage to complain in secret with his equally hapless friends. Looking to turn his life around, he desperately uses an ancestral artifact passed down in his family for generations: a scroll that is capable of subduing all demons. However, in the modern age it has a different effect´┐Ż"it makes all bad girls fall in love with him. - TheSeventh

10 Beelzebub Beelzebub

The Contenders

11 Rokudenashi Blues

This story follows Taison Maeda as he strives to become the strongest delinquent in Tokyo. Sounds cliched right? Well don't worry, Rokudenashi Blues is one of the original manga that helped kick start the delinquent craze, it was originally published in 1988 and has over 400+ chapters. Rokudenashi not only has some great art but it does fight scenes insanely well! It's also one of the few manga that does the whole school alliance/school wars thing extremely well.

This manga would be higher up on the list if it didn't have some of the more messed up stuff in it(you'll know what I'm referring to pretty early on in the manga), though it wasn't enough to knock it off this list entirely I don't want to put it above the rest that actually stay pretty tame - TheSeventh

12 Dokgo

The best of the best. Following all series in the dokgo universe, this is really one of the best high school fighting manhwa with later progression into gangs.

13 Gokusen
14 Shonan Junai Gumi
15 Crows
16 GTO: The Early Years (Shonan Junai Gumi)

Ekichi Onizuka and Ryuji Danma are members of infamous biker gang, Oni Baku. When not out riding around, they can be found in school, trying to pick up young women. This is the story of the young Onizuka, who would later become the greatest teacher in Japan.
