1. What doestitlemean?

It has nothing to do with Be-Bop with jazz trumpet. In Japan, there is a manga called "Be Bop High-school", a story of high school students who love streetfights. Thus came the title, conjunction of this manga and 'bout' (show-biz style martial fight match).

2. Why they are fighting over budget?

As background, the school committee decided, as part of financial recession, to leave only one martial art club and abolish others. And they told clubs to decide the winner in battles which take place during Bunkasai (annual festival commonly held in Japanese schools, where you display constructed items or perform plays - like in Ryoko stage).

3. Who is Shochan?

There is another manga drawn by famous late cartoonist Fujiko Fujiko F (author of ever-so-famous Doraemon), "ObaQ", featuring a three-haired monster similar to Raiko's guise. He is coward, and always calls for his human friend Shochan's help.

4. Then who is Shinchan?

It's just Saeba's first name, added with "chan" which is used when you call a child, or in mockery (this is the case with Raiko calling Saeba).

Ryoko "Since we were defeated and lost our clubs and budgets, we joined kenpo club."


Raiko "Pardon?"


Ryoko "But kenpo doesn't suit our bodies much.

So! We have an idea!"

Ryoko "I am a leader of kenpo club's karate section!"

Goda "Then, I am a leader of kenpo club's judo section!"

Saeba "And I am a leader of kenpo club's boxing section. Know me as so."

Raiko "I can't know you as so.

W, what in the hell is this."

Ryoko "There can't be any problem, you don't have other members anyway."

Goda "Yes, we took all our club members with us."

Saeba "Or do you wanna go on alone? I know you won't last long, however."

Raiko "Urrghh..."

Raiko "You bastards!!!"

Smash, smash!

Raiko "I, it hurts, help me Shochan!"

Ryoko "Who the hell Shochan is, as if you're his friend ObaQ the ghost!

You pervert!!"

Crush! Smash!

Raiko lying strangled

Raiko "...Sho,


The story went, then she had no money to repair the broken shower room, which became
unusable, and turned into club miscellany storage...

Goda notices

Goda "Hm?"

Goda is surprised

Goda "Wh...

Two faces

Saeba "Looks too much study finally had blown your brain off, teacher!!"


Raiko circulating around Saeba

Raiko "Lucky, lucky, Shinchan boy.

Give me at least third of it.

Or, even half is enough."

Saeba "What do you mean "even half is enough"! You're making it bigger.

I don't have a penny to give to you!"

Raiko "Oh dear, can you say such a thing? By the way, isn't Shinchan's girlfriend cute?"

Saeba "Wha.....,

I don't have a girlfriend!"

Raiko "You claim innocence.

Then, will you still claim after looking this?"

Raiko in sunglasses

Raiko "Well, I never thought that nihilistic, cool and serious Saeba was doing a healthy high school student properly with a girlfriend..."

Raiko "This, may I take this to newspaper club? Or won't anyone buy this at good price?"

Raiko "Hey, wanna buy? Shinchan."

Saeba "Agh... you fucking badboy...

Holy shit! Take this!"

Raiko "Thank you for your yens!"
