Like other Nishimori’s works, it is a work that exquisitely combines ‘school cheerful’ and ‘school violence’.
The daily descriptions of the characters are cheerful enough that even women can enjoy them, but once they enter the battle scenes, they are quite intense and concrete realistic depictions of violence stand out even in other Japanese academies.
In particular, this tends to be the case because it depicts the meanness of gangsters very realistically. In order to abandon them and bring down their heads, they cowardly wield violence, freely engage in brutal violence against the weak, and engage in all kinds of mean and vicious acts before getting entangled with the main character and other characters.
In this work, the appearance pattern of the enemies that the main duo defeats is different from other academy films. If most of the school fighting films have a composition where they compete with a lot of strong people and in the end they fight with the strongest in the work, then the strongest person in this work is While Akehisa’s cap-chan Satoshi doesn’t appear on the battlefield after a bloody battle with Mitsuhashi at the beginning of the work, throughout the entire work, Mitsuhashi’s strongest enemy, Saga, uses his psychopathic character as a weapon, not his own force. It attacks the main duo, wielding violence beyond the . Among Nishimori’s works, it is the most violent of Nishimori’s works, along with the cheeky angel
, which hits people with a car, slams him in the head with a blunt weapon, and frequently appears with a weapon . However, there are a lot of comic elements and there is no Simonetta at all, so if you go back to the whole academy, the stimulation is not very high. The main character duo is purely punching and kicking even if the opponent is attacking with a weapon . Even Mitsuhashi, who uses all kinds of tools, rarely responds with a weapon to a weapon. They cover their eyes by spraying powder with a fire extinguisher (not hitting them with a fire extinguisher), confuse them with firecrackers, break fluorescent lights with their shoes, or pound their opponents with swords with plastic bats. When Ito was the first to wield a wooden sword and inflict serious injuries on the Sagara side, he chased after him and shot him down with his wooden sword. Also, unlike the main character of most academy movies, Takashi Mitsuhashi, the main character of this work, is cold-hearted and mean. His nickname is Cowardly Mitsuhashi .
There is absolutely no sexual depiction that has nothing to do with the story. The most obscene description in the film is the only scene in which Mitsuhashi accidentally rubbed Riko’s chest once. According to Mitsuhashi, Riko ‘s breasts are quite large .Basically, it takes the gag route, but once it changes to the serious route, it rides so extreme that it’s hard to catch your breath while reading, so the change of atmosphere in each episode is dramatic. However, the pattern is often repetitive.
The Bad Guy Appears
This pattern is also reflected in the artist’s other works. For example, starting from today, the showdown with Sagara in the last half of Ours and the showdown with Gakusan in the last half of the cheeky angel unfolds (the villain who is obsessed with the main character is unilaterally put on the defensive, and the friendly characters wake up one after another and overcome, one of the main characters) In a situation where one person is unable to move, the other protagonist shows amazing power) and the ending (the villain goes away without giving the villain a final blow and gives up his obsession with the main characters) are very similar.
It shows the hardship of not being able to tell whether to laugh or cry at all, including Imai, the cap-chan of Benny High School, who is usually swept away by Mitsuhashi’s cruel pranks, and Ito, Mitsuhashi’s best friend and duo. Of course, in most cases, the enemy characters also get involved without a jolly.
The characters are attractive, the gag and seriousness are well mixed, and there are no awkward expressions or descriptions. A popular opinion is that if the humor code is correct, it is the funniest cartoon, and if it is not, it is for killing time. I enjoyed it when I was young, but when I look back when I get older, there are a lot of sentiments that I will not be able to see Mitsuhashi because Nami has fallen for Mitsuhashi.
Hiroyuki Nishimori’s flat style is also considered a weakness. This work is especially serious because it is an early work. It’s okay once you get used to it, but it can be difficult to get used to when you first encounter it.
There was a Koreanized name in the pirate days, but this is a slam dunkIt was a name that matched quite well. The main character Mitsuhashi is Han Seung-tae, Ito is Lee Ho-jun, stupid Imai is Kim Sang-beom, Riko is Yoon Mi-sun, Kyoko is Park Kyung-ja, Katagiri (Jo Han-ju in Teen Teen), Jo Han-jun, etc. I don’t know if it’s Mitsuhashi or Ito, but there are quite a few people who remember Han Seung-tae and Lee Ho-jun.
The translation is better than the full version, but there are parts where the tone and tone are better than the pirated version. For example, at Ricone Dojo, when you hang up a dojo sign and play a 5:5 match with another dojo, Imai fights over the height with the opponent, and Imai responds to an attack saying, “If you are big, will wisdom be transmitted to your whole body?” A scene in which he replies, “Then… if you have a small body, the wisdom it will have on your whole body is obvious.” It’s pretty smooth even for a pirate version.
