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.

There's only 3 volumes out, but i like this manga. It's funny, and you get to see the imaginary high school all boys thug society with fights and crazy looking teens (One is named the Butcher).

Being the Worst is the best.

Like Hamori Takashi, Takahashi Hiroshi's works are all the same as his own previous work, Crows, QP and Worst... The different between these two are the girl character. More than a decade pass by Takahashi still couldn't draw a girl character but Hamori can do pretty well with it. However, Hamori's story lines are more flattern though... Anyways, if you have read his previous work then there isn't anything left for you in this manga, unless your are a Takahashi's huge fan...

What worries me the most is that the mangaka is unable to draw girls.
I think I saw only one girl, and it was a shadow (!), and even though pretty badly drawn.

It would not be a problem if the manga was only about fight, but since the toughest guy is a womanizer, it's pretty hard to believe that without having any drawn girl !
The mangaka solved this problem by using guys who are girls (the 'sister' of the landlord).

About the manga, I laughed only once during the first 9 volumes, so I got bored. I'm still amazed by my own endurance.
If you like fights, I largely prefer Change Guy.

Crows was readable due to its redeemable factor being that it was more comedy than Worst. A LOT more comedy. Worst tried to be "serious". Which it failed utterly at.

1) No females, but that's been mentioned 10 times here already.
2) Every character has the same roid-induced body structure drawn. Even the "weakest" guy, who constantly got bullied, had foot-wide biceps. WTF?
3) No character development. We start out with the main character. He's strong. He meets other guys, they're weaker than him. One guy beats the main guy. Ok... Are we told of the main character's past? Why he got strong? No. Does the main character get stronger? No. Does ANYONE get stronger than anyone else? No.
4) That brings me to the fourth point, NONE OF THEM TRAIN. EVER. IN ANYTHING. For people whose life seems to focus around fighting, none of them get better at fighting, and none of them TRY to get better at fighting. WTF?
5) It took me 5 volumes to realize they actually go to school. I guess that's my biggest beef with this manga. Any good manga should have interaction between different levels of society, and different levels of power. In this manga there is nearly NO interaction with regular citizens, teachers, or school kids. We can only compare thugs to thugs. To thugs. To more thugs. It gets annoying.
6) The fights don't get more interesting. Apart from the fact that they don't train or get stronger, the fights remain unbelievably simple throughout the whole manga. The fights in mangas like Holyland get more advanced and technical as the manga progresses. In here there's... Uppercuts, straights, hooks, kicks, headbutts. Those are in volume 1. Volume 10? Uppercuts, straights, hooks, kicks, headbutts. Are the fights explained? Nope. But they sure look badass, eh?

I stopped reading this roid-induced sausage fest about 10 volumes in, after decided the next 10 volumes will be exactly the same.
