Seikimatsu Leader den Takeshi! (世紀末リーダー伝たけし!?, lit. "A Tale of a Leader in The End of the Century Takeshi!") is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro. The manga was serialised in Weekly Shōnen Jump from 1997 until 2002. The series received the 2001 Shogakukan Manga Award for children's manga.[1]


From the moment he was born, Takeshi was born to be a leader. His first word upon birth was "leader", and his father, Hiroshi, was a "leader" among salarymen. After Hiroshi suddenly dies, Takeshi makes it his life goal to be a leader like his father, so he joins his new first grade class and hopes to become a true leader to his classmates.



The serialized manga was collected by Shueisha in 25 tankōbon volumes between December 1997 and September 1, 2002.[2][3] The series was re-released by Shueisha in 13 bunkoban volumes between August 4, 2004 and December 2, 2005.[4][5]


Although no anime series of Seikimatsu Leader den Takeshi! exists, a pilot film was shown as part of the "Jump Super Anime Tour" of 1998 with pilots for One Piece and Hunter × Hunter.[6]
