It turns out there are some great anime about delinquents, those troublemakers who may do stupid things but still mange to be somewhat endearing, but which are really worth your time? This list ranks the best anime about delinquents, including older titles, as well as new delinquent central anime that you may not know about.

One example is School Rumble Ni Gakki, a 26-episode anime about delinquents that aired in 2004-2005 and is at its core a love triangle in high school. The delinquent here is Kenji Harima who uses manga to channel his jealousy. Another well-known anime about delinquents is Slam Dunk, which centers on a delinquent who turns out to have an aptitude for basketball. He first joins the Shōhoku High School basketball team to impress a girl, but soon learns he also just might like roundball itself.
