Sakigake!! Otokojuku

http://youtube.com/watch?v=El_By7uV0qA

This is a Shonen Jump manga about an Ouendan School. It was featured in Jump Ultimate Stars and it seems very interesting. Anyone know about any fansubs or anything? I looked and I couldn't find anything. It must have been very popular in Japan, because it had two playable characters in JUS.

EDIT: Devil Fansubs (http://devilfansub.awardspace.com/) has a request forum for new series for them to fansub. I posted this in there and they said it looked interesting and that they will keep it in mind. If you want this, go say so in the request forum topic!

Sorry to double post but finally this got subbed. I am really happy about this!

This show is really funny so far. I like it a lot more than Cromartie which this is kind of similar to.

Well, Otoko-juku is almost 20 years old now.
Many jokes have emerged out of it in the last 20 years, and Kuromatie is only one example of it.

If you read Japanese otaku forums and such, you'll occassinally see some fictional script of a fictional history, with (excerpt from Minmei Shobou) written on it.
Minmei Shobou was a fictional publisher that comes up in Otoko-juku, with all these wild fictional historical accounts, and has been a rich source of joke, and as loved by fans in Japan as much as Jojo jokes.

Anyways, I doubt you'll find very many people in the West interested in the manga/anime, but in Japan... you cannot claim to be an otaku without being familiar with Otoko-juku, just like Jojo. It was one of the most popular Jump manga in the past two decades.

Indeed. not to mention the mangaka did a sequel for it around 5 years back in addition to a Gaiden about the Principal's life.

The original quartet was fun, mainly because of the half-serious(Momotarou and J), half-comedic setup(Toramaru and the other guy).

Some of the arts in it were just plain out of this world. Power Golfing, anyone?

I look forward to seeing more. It is good some of the older series from Jump are getting subbed. First Hell Teacher Nube and now this. I wish Tettemo! luckyman would get subbed. Also Jungle King Taa-chan cuz it looks creepy and funny. (Not creepy as in scary, creepy as in Michael Jackson creepy)

Does anybody know if the anime is faithful to the manga? Do they cut a lot out or is it completely different?

The manga goes quicker, but I think they've covered the first chapter with extra anime-only stuff.

Just a note: We're looking at a 34 volume series. If anything it'd almost as long as DB and DBZ combined if they did animate it all.

Thumbs up

It was so stupid.... I couldn't stop laughing. I can't wait to show it to my girlfriend!

This.. yes.. this is what anime is all about!

Burning spirit and the future of Japan, indeed!

I'm so glad that otokojuku is being fan subbed! I used to have the entire manga of otokojuku before I moved to USA from Taiwan (of course it's all in Chinese). The manga is hard to really hard to find now and a mint complete series is went for over $100 US (which is actually cheap, since each volume is like 8 bucks in US for any manga and otokojuku has over 30 volumes I think).

Anyways, looking forward to the anime!

I like the setup of it. It's sort of like a comedy show with a serious main character.

I think this is the best anime episode about Americans I've ever seen.

My gawd It must have ruled to be a gay kid with a Shonen Jump subscription back in the 80s I mean everywhere barechested hyper-violent manly men who just can't stop being "sub"textually gay.

Only seen episode one and already I can't believe it. an line of underwear shots, guys switching to loincloths and so many spankings!

There is just no need for actual porn in japan, is there (especially thanks to genital blurring)

Okay to be more relevant while the character breakdown is aggrivating due to stereotypes that I can rest assured won't budge, ever. There are no bishies to be seen. HUZZAH!

Still with animation and blocky meathead designs like this its easy to see why Toriyama's style is so lauded when the animators actually, ya know, animate something its insanely good looking. These designs and fight sequences carry a little something different but are a little disappointing. And its so goddamn 80s and not cute eighties either. Seen some youtube raws of episode 4.

I can understand why this series never caught on. Its horrible looking even for its time period (Robotech, Yawara, and others are from the 80s as well and this looks worse than those), has a host of unappealing cartoons along with racy situations that are pretty dependent on you not only knowing alot of cultural context but enough to know why these guys are ridiculous. Not to mention just watching this makes you feel dumber.



I do hope no one took this seriously... aside from the former president of Taiwan.

HEE, so that's where Heihachi comes from, well that and Geese Howard. Still it always seems there is an iconicness to characters we meet. Even *this* Heihachi seems to be invoking the look of something else.

Overall I like it. Its different and I hope easy enough to subtitle with lots of goofy "mean" characters to drool over.

It's pretty hard, really.
Nobody gets Yakuza slang and the weird super-manly high school speak except for actual Yakuza and Tsurugi Momotarou. I think the last episode broke one of the translator's brains (whose primary language is Swedish already).

BTW, the first line of the song is from this poem, then the next line is from some rural-ish expression like "X isn't worth bothering with". I can't find anyone who knows what they're talking about, but I guess that's about average for anime themes.

This show rocks! Does it get a more serious story later on in the series?

No, actually it gets terrible later on (some really, really long shounen tournament). There's a movie which I'm told is also terrible, but I don't know when it starts getting bad.
