Shōnan Jun'ai Gumi! originally talks about the legendary biker duo Eikichi and his partner Ryuuji and their constant struggle to pick up young girls and finally lose their virginity. In order to do this, they decide to pose as fashionable, nice guys with no association to gangs or street fighting. However the story soon becomes more fight oriented as they can't help but make new enemies. In this manner, they soon enough get in even deeper trouble with the local street gangs, bosozoku and even yakuza.
Bad Company tells how Eikichi met Ryuuji, and despite taking place before Shonan Junai Gumi (which in turn took place before GTO), it was written during the final stages of the series as a prequel.
Other well-known titles include Rose Hip Rose, Rose Hip Zero, and Tokko.
