Kimengumi (ハイスクール!奇面組, Haisukūru! Kimengumi?) is a manga series written by Motoei Shinzawa which ran in Weekly Shōnen Jump from 1982 to 1987. The title literally translates to High School! Funny-face Club or High School! Weird Face Club. An anime TV series (1985-1987) and movie (1986) based on the series were also released. The High School! manga series was preceded by Third Year Funny-face Club (3年奇面組, Sannen Kimengumi?) (1980-1982), and followed by Flash! Funny-face Club (フラッシュ!奇面組, Furasshu! Kimengumi?) (2001-2005). Kimengumi is an episodic chronicle of the bizarre adventures of a group of misfit junior high school (and later, high school) boys who form a club known as the "Kimengumi". All of the character names in the series are puns. For example, "Kawa Yui" is another way of saying "kawaii," and "Uru Chie" is a slang form of "urusai," meaning "obnoxious" or "annoying." Other romanizations of the title include High School! Kimen-gumi and Highschool! Kimengumi. In a 2006 survey of celebrities by TV Asahi, Kimengumi was listed as #87 on a list of the top 100 favorite anime series.
