Sakigake!! Otokojuku Shippu Ichi Gou Sei (魁！！男塾 疾風一号生? lit. Charge!! Men's Private School Number One Student) is a martial arts action game developed by TOSE for the Famicom, and published in Japan by Bandai on March 3, 1989. It is the first video game adaptation of the manga Sakigake!! Otokojuku, about a private school that teaches troubled teens ouendan, a form of male cheerleading that involves percussion instruments and chanting, best known to western gamers as the core mechanic of the Elite Beat Agents games. Both the manga and the anime series (which originated shortly before this game's release and is its main inspiration and reason for its existence) are extremely violent, and the game's nature as a brawler emphasizes this aspect.
The player can select between four main characters, however they all look and play similarly. Most of the game is a 2D side-scroller, though the game will switch to a depth-enhanced field (such as that seen in Double Dragon or Final Fight) for its boss battles.
