Delinquent in Drag is a Japanese manga created by Go Nagai in 1974. It is a comedy with several erotic touches, where the protagonist Suke Banji (or Sukeban) has to disguise himself as a girl in order to be able to attend an all-female school. As Suke Ban is a rebellious boy, this situation creates several comedic troubles.
Tropes featured in the manga and anime:
- Covers Always Lie - Ever notice ADV Films' VHS cover for the film? The actual film is a high school comedy, and the VHS cover makes it look like a Darker and Edgier action piece.
- Martial Arts and Crafts - In the anime, Suke Banji winds up getting all sorts of challenges from rivals, including the infamous Pantyhose Brigade.
- No Export for You - Only the animated film ever saw the light of day Stateside.
- Wholesome Crossdresser - Suke Banji.
