Origin: [See Worse, v. t. & a.]
Worst is an ongoing Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hiroshi Takahashi. The plot revolves around a group of teenage boys who fight their way through the notorious high school, Suzuran. The manga was first published by Shōnen Champion in 2002. The series is currently being serialized in Japan and has been collected into twenty-five tankōbon volumes. In North America, Digital Manga Publishing has released only three volumes, with the last graphic novel released in November 2004. The series is currently on hiatus but Digital Manga Publishing has said that if enough fans show interest, they will consider continuing the series.
