japanese delinquents

vile-priestess  asked:

Someone might have already pointed this out, but another possible bit of evidence for Kirishima being a delinquent former is that he was teaching Deku how to act like a thug in the Bakugou rescue arc. (And also Iida how to act like an advertiser for a hostess club.) Obviously, there could be some more mundane explanation for it like a family member working in a hostess bar or Kirishima cribbing stuff from movies he watched, but I do find it suspicious added to everything else.

Kirishima Trying to Teach Midoriya How to Be a Thug

Haha! Thug!Midoriya is so underappreciated. 

Midoriya wagging his chin, shouting “ora”, and pretending to be a stereotypical yankii thug is one of the funniest things in the manga. XD 

Do you think Kirishima was a part of a juvenile group like the yankiis?

Kirishima being a chinpira (juvenile delinquent) gives me chills. If you don’t know who Japanese juvenile delinquents are, they’re uhhhh…

You’ll know them if you see them. 

They’re young Japanese hooligans who act like the toughest and coolest people on Earth. They’re typically in your face and growl “ora” as sign of hostility and vulgarity. They’re rebellious, wearing dark punk clothes with black hair slicked back or punch permed. It’s common to see them in long jackets with kanji of their group names and/or motto. Other signs of a Japanese delinquent include dyed hair; rizento hair; coat capes; blunt weapons like bats or planks; grass, cigarettes, or other things sticking out their mouths; and piercings, tattoos, or other body modifications.

These delinquents are the people who make their parents cry.

Sorry, I find the idea of Kirishima teaching sweet and innocent Midoriya how to be a chinapira absolutely hilarious. XD “No Midoriya, you have to stick your chin out, be aggressive, be bad, and SHOW THEM WHO’S BOSS.”

Sorry…sorry…sorry….I probably find this funnier than any of you do. 

But yeah….the idea of Kirishima being a chinpira is SO WEIRD. I can’t imagine him being as flamboyant as them. He must have broke laws and got into fights if he were a chinpira. Is that manly? Although, there are some chinpira groups who are very honorable, having strict customs and codes and being well organized to limit violence.


So I’d seen before on @jazztronic‘s and @crocus29‘s tumblrs that the Diamond Brothers make cameo appearances in the Kenka Banchou series. More specifically, Kenka Banchou Bros. While admittedly by the point you do fight the Diamond Bros. it’s a bit of a breeze, what’s really interesting is finally getting a taste of Daiya’s personality and finding out Daiya has a Super High School Level Title! That being, Super High School Level Souchou!

So, with the help of @taichinchin in the translating department, I personally did my best to record and subtitle the video as best as I could. I’m not super good at video editing, but hopefully it turned out well enough for you guys to enjoy! For those of you watching, I tried to make my Bros. look like other DR characters and failed miserably, so please enjoy this interpetation I did of Mitsuhashi and Itou from Kyou Kara Ore Wa beating up the Diamond Bros.!

My entry for the Character Design Contest… and my first time participating! This month’s prompt was “Sailor Moon.” Her style is inspired by sukeban/yankii fashion (iconic for school-aged Japanese delinquents) and she is the leader of a girl-gang that fights evil by moonlight! Thanks for looking!


looking thru my old files and i had remembered there was actually a beta?? a first attempt to make a stuco/delinquent au haha,, originally they had their canon uniforms on.
