Bouya Harumichi is a new transfer student to Suzuran all-boys high school, a place where only the worst delinquents assemble. Due to its large amount of delinquents who are hated by the general people for their inauspiciousness, similarly to crows, it is also known as "Crows High School".

Harumichi is an insanely strong fighter but has an irresponsible personality. How will he act in this new environment where everyone is a delinquent?

Due to its high popularity in Japan there are four extra manga stories related to this series and 2 live action movies.

Overall, I've loved this manga: the plot was entertaining, characters drew you in etc.I honestly would've given it an even higher rating, if only the author had finished the story properly. I find the whole arc on new first years a bit overlong and boring.

I wonder why it is just now that i saw this manga.
If your a total fan of shounen/badass/friendship mangas this is a total match for you. and what's better, it totally goes well with the COMEDY.
after reading this i never thought i'd laugh this hard over a manga.

Harumichi just totally rock \m/ . he's surely the man amongst men. Cocky but reasonable (cause he's totally freaking strong). Childish but mature. I just love him.

I guess the only minus on this one is the "next generation" part. After realizing that harumichi's won't be on the act that much anymore it just made me lose interest, but still continued anyway.

I started reading this manga because I love shounen mangas especially ones with fighting/deliquents. I also like art styles like this one. I actually read this through the end but while reading Crows halfway through, I am thinking "Where the hell is this story going?" Crows is literally fighting. Fighting for power to get to the top, for revenge, to prove something, for friendship.

Characters. There are just too many of them and I can't keep track of everyone and they almost all look the same. I thought some would be just for that arc and will be recurring but no, everyone became part of the ride. I do understand though that it's like that because everyone is involved in their town. I like how time really flows in Crows, though. Like how the third years are graduating and they really thought about their futures and of course, the next generation.

The Definitive Delinquent Manga

This is a manga about high school delinquents fighting each other for various reasons; revenge, high-school gang politics, for pride, or because they just want a fight. There are too few of these manga about, and this is a great example with memorable fights, characters, arcs and relationships.
Do Not Miss.

Ryuu & Fenrill, you don´t know how much I´m thankful to you for picking up this manga. I´ve been waiting for an uptade for at least half a decade ( well...not really but it feels like a decade ago this manga have been uptaded). THANK YOU!

This is definitly a manga in my taste, delinquents and fights over power. This is very interesting and I´m looking forward to see more. I really wish there was more series like this out there.

I usually don't like stupid funny or slapstick humor but this manga is AMAZING! It never fails to deliver. I always save this manga update last to read just in case the other new releases are disappointing because i know this one wont be.

A good manga about high school yankees, gang fights, struggle for power over others and more. Good drawings that greatly improve over the volumes (series lasts 26v) and a great cast of interesting characters. Anyone who like fighting manga's with great characters, this is it!
