Worst is a high-impact, gang-related title that deals with teenage boys fighting their way through high school in order to gain respect. There is no room for deceit and underhanded tricks at the notorious High School Suzuran. These young men follow a strict honor code when it comes to brawling, reminiscent of the mafia in the early days.
As a "yankii manga," yankii (ヤンキー) being derived from the English word Yankee but having a different meaning and pronunciation, Worst involves delinquent young men like Hana Tsukishima who are fighting up through the ranks to rule over the entire school.

Ugh? wait, no.
1. No girls, but its not about romance, so it doesnt matter. 2. The characters' body are pretty much all draw the same, but the story largely makes up for this little flaw. 3. Character development is kept to the minimum, focusing on the event and making each development more meaningful. 4. They don't show them training, which is great, cause who wants to see a guy practicing his taekwondo. 5. You dont see them talking to any1 else. It keeps the story simple and focused on the main events, which is great cause the story doesn't start flowing away from its main objective, unlike in many other mangas. 6. The fights are great because they are more than just punch and kick (and they dont explain every little moves they do like in holyland, thank god.), it's the importance of those fights that makes them interesting.
Finaly a good shounen that doesn't need cheap romance or ecchi to make it interesting.

Well I'm thinking about sacrifying my left ball to the manga God for letting me read such an awesome manga but I don't think it would be enough....
No girls, no super-powers..
but who cares? "Worst" rocks! Nice fights, cool looking characters [Guriko Lol] and the plot is getting better and better
Like ChaperonNoir said.. "Being the Worst is the best."!!
Who cares about female presence? It's one of the very rare one where there are no girls, you can read any other if you want romance. Anyway I agree with last advice (Forgivewhatyoudo)
Nice thug manga
This manga has somewhat realistic fights, cool looking thugs with masks, bruises, scars, bats, steelpipes etc. No firing weapons at all, only fist fights with extras. The clothes don't seem to be outdated, no weird haircuts, and the strongest guy in town has an afro, who would have thought? AFFFUUUURRRROOOOO
This is a good manga. Not any females AT all in it, which kinda gives it an over masculine feel, but besides that its pretty cool. I'm glad it's being scanlated again.
2 thumbs up....
i love this manga......this is one of my favorites types of mangas and it's done right for a change
you got a strong, lovable main character (although goofy)......and lots of good supporting characters, with plenty of character development
and on top of that, you got a seemingly basic plot "fight for the strongest, fight some more, and some more, till you're crowned as the best" which is in fact pretty deep, and plot heavy, and it's constantly evolving with it's drama, tragedy, and it's gang politics
to make a long story short this manga has it all.....Characters, Plot, Art, Drama, Action, Emotions and Comedy......all in all it's dope as hell, i'd say everyone should read it and especially those who enjoy delinquent/yankee mangas
btw.....it is kind of weird that there hasn't been one single female character, but whatever s'all good
I really love this manga, I just love it. I recently read Crows and it just added so much more enjoyment for me for this series. I love the action, the fights, everything about it. I love the character designs especially, finally a manga with no bishonen!~

Never would have thought that a manga about (non-bishie) boys would interest me this much.
Worst is soooo good! It's pretty much about teenage delinquents kicking each other's butts, no super powers or complicated martial arts, but they still look super cool. The only thing that I don't like about it is that the mangaka introduce a bunch of characters at once, which leaves me a bit confused for a while, but you get used to it.

An obvious 10 from me. What with me being one of the guys working on it.
