Description
Nanba Tsuyoshi is leading a double life. He's part of a hardcore delinquent family, and he's supposed to go to their traditional Ichimatsu high school and be the top fighter. Instead, he's secretly attending the high-class Shirayuri high school, as a normal kid. For a while, things seem to be going well. He has the skills of a top fighter, so he just sneaks into Ichimatsu to knock out his competitors. Afterwards, he switches back to his mild-mannered, Art Club president, student council president alter ego. With a little help from a few trusted friends, he's kept the two lives safely separate.

Everything gets a little harder when his little sister Ginko decides to attend Shirayuri high school. Will he be able to keep his identity secret from his own sister, as they attend the same school? And how will he deal with Yayoi, a Shirayuri student with a huge crush on his punk persona? Will he be able to keep up his double life through graduation?

Amazing series

Non spoiler: Good action, good character development, good friendships, good characters. I would definitely recommend.

If I were to sum up the difference between this prequel and sequel:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Will Tsuyoshi be able to keep up his double life?
MG5: yes
Deadend: no
Deadend explores what happens when Tsuyoshi's secrets start to fall apart. The double life trope is common, but seeing it realistically fail and the fallout of its exposure are rare treats. Slowly, his family, friends and school find out what he's actually up to and many of them are extremely upset. There's a lot of character development as Tsuyoshi and everyone around him tries to cope with the revelations and figure out what to do next. MG5 by itself is an amazing delinquent manga, but Deadend takes it to the next level.
