Review Tenjo Tenge Volumes 1-5Written by WarpshadowRating good /very good

I like my fan service with action since at very least the story has the characters trying to do something between panty shots.

Soichiro Nagi and his friend Bob Makihara thought that they were pretty tough cookies but that all changed the day they entered Todo High and realized that they where big fish in a small pond before now. They also earned the interest of the school’s Juken club in not only beat downs but also Aya Natsume’s newfound romantic obsession with Soichiro. However they have also earned the wrath of the Executive council and their group of skilled martial artists who begin targeting the pair.

I usually like to classify manga by genre and if I were to do that for Tenjo Tenge I would probably call it a shonen adventure manga. However such a statement doesn't entirely sit right since that phrase conjures images of a more innocent story than a violence and fan service fest like this manga offers. This is not to say that Tenjo Tenge is a bad manga as it's fights have a visceral edge to them and it's sexuality is separate from the brainless romantic comedies that most fan service comes with. If you are the sort of person that likes this sort of stuff then you will probably really like Tenjo Tenge.
