Do you like delinquent characters in anime if so, hop in, today we are going to cover the best anime that we can over the internet with some of the best delinquent characters in it.
Let’s not waste any more time and just dive in…
Here are the best anime with delinquents ranked
15. Haven’t you heard? I’m Sakamoto.
Gakuban Prefectural High School, there’s a boy who just might be the coolest human being alive – a first-year student with style and finesse that solves every problem with ease, and looks absolutely fabulous in the process.
Women adore him, children idolize him, and delinquents are frustrated by their inability to defeat him.
The teachers can’t outwit him, and when there’s an animal in trouble, even the raging winds can’t hold him back! Because he is Sakamoto.
14. Cromartie Highschool
Takashi Kamiyama is your typical mild-mannered high school student—polite, aloof, and pacifistic, with a slightly above-average IQ.
But would your average high school student really enroll himself at the infamous Cromartie High School, known as a breeding ground for the toughest delinquents out there.
Apparently so, as that is exactly what Takashi does, though for reasons he’d rather leave unmentioned.
However, one thing is for sure: the “hard-boiled rabbit in a den full of hungry lions” is never going to have another dull day.
13. Shonan Junai Gumi
Onizuka Eikichi and Danma Ryuji are best buddies waiting for their love life to bloom, but in order to do this they must cast aside their delinquent ways.
Eikichi and Ryuji clean up their act, transfer to a new school, and become hard-working students.
This act successfully attracts the ladies, but it also attracts other delinquents.
With their lives constantly under threat, Eikichi and Ryuji’s secret identity as the infamous Oni Baku biker gang is revealed!
The end result is trouble by the pound.
With danger abounding, the Oni Baku duo face the odds and ends of love while solving all of life’s problems with aggressive violence!
12. Shonan Bakusozoku
In Japan, the country that inspired the slogan “Born to be Mild,” the blood of young men still runs hot.
In the old days they’d go off into the country and hack each other up with swords, but these days, what with school, that isn’t very practical.
So some of them do something very un-Japanese.
They strap on a big bike, roar around annoying people, and pound anyone they consider dishonorable.
11. Ikebukuro West Gate Park
Crime-ridden Ikebukuro is a haven for violent gangs, the Yakuza, and home to Makoto Majima.
To protect his friends, this charismatic troubleshooter mediates disputes among the warring factions—even fixing problems the police can’t.
But when a rising tide of violence results in Makoto losing a loved one, can he ride out the storm, or will he drown in all the spilled blood that floods his streets
To all his schoolmates, Jin comes across as a hot-headed class clown from typically barging in late and sleeping the whole way through to always responding to any situation with reckless stupidity.
The fact that he used to be the charismatic leader of a legendary biker gang has turned into an urban legend.
However, after starting a rivalry with the captain of the school baseball team, he and two former members, become their star players.
But it’s not long before his past catches up to him.
9. My Little Monster
This romance anime series centers around a girl that is so focused on succeeding in school and life, she has gone cold.
This ability to excel leads her teachers to have her try and convince a violent delinquent to come back to school.
He instantly falls in love with her.
As you soon learn, having a delinquent fall in love with you is like having a guard dog, but the show is more about discovery the truth of adolescent feelings of love.
8. School Rumble
As a comedy anime series, there are a lot of reoccurring jokes in School Rumble, but none are more entertaining than a thug having himself a school boy crush on the main character who barely knows he exists.
He desperately wants her to notice him, but at the same time goes to great lengths for his love to not be noticed.
7. Yu Yu Hakusho
Yusuke fighting demons and pretty much anyone makes sense because he was a delinquent.
Violence is his only answer.
Of course, Yu Yu Hakusho also shows that delinquents can have a heart of gold as well.
The Kazama Family—a gang of three wannabe delinquents and close friends, spearheaded by Kenji Kazama, is trying to make a name for themselves at Fujou Academy.
On the first day of the term, the gang finds themselves putting out a fire in the Game Development Club.
Instead of thanking them, the eccentric club members attack and knock out Kenji’s two friends, forcing Kenji to fight for his life.
Failing to escape, the gang leader is coerced into joining the Game Development Club.
Throughout the Game Development Club’s constant shenanigans and his desperate attempts to leave the club, Kenji begins to realize that he may be actually enjoying himself.
A lot of shows that feature delinquent characters all angle more towards the lighter, comedic side of things.
However, there is very little light in Rainbow.
Dark and dramatic, Rainbow is about thugs suffering under the inhumanities that one would find in a 1950’s prison in Japan.
It’s bad, but can brotherhood se them through the torture?
4. Mob Psycho 100
Mob is a slacker, but not quite a delinquent.
However, he is surrounded by delinquents.
They may want to mess with him, or even just befriend him in order to use his psychic powers for profit.
There is some pretty impressive scum to be found, but actually Mob Psycho is rather charming in its animation and later story.
A delinquent, Oga Tatsumi, finds himself as the chosen one to take care of baby Beel, son of the demon king.
But Oga is not keen on the idea and intends to find someone else to take on the task.
Amazing anime for sure.
2. Tokyo Revengers
After being forced to relive the very same day that began his downward spiral, Takemichi meets Hinata’s younger brother.
Without thinking, he admits to his seeming death before flashing back to the past.
Takemichi urges him to protect his sister before inexplicably returning to the future.
Miraculously, he isn’t dead.
Stranger still, the future has changed.
It seems as though Takemichi can alter the flow of time.
Given the chance to prevent his ex-girlfriend’s tragic death at the hands of the Tokyo Manji Gang, Takemichi decides to fly through time to change the course of the future.
1. Great Teacher Onizuka
A biker turned teacher discovers his long-repressed conscience and becomes a tough but fair role model when he is put in charge of a class full of delinquents.
This isn’t because of a passion for teaching, but because he wants a loving teenage wife when he’s old and gray.
Still, for a perverted, greedy, and lazy delinquent, there is more to Onizuka than meets the eye.
So when he lands a job as the homeroom teacher of the Class 3-4 at the prestigious Holy Forest Academy—despite suplexing the Vice Principal—all of his talents are put to the test, as this class is particularly infamous.
