Young Thugs: Innocent Blood (岸和田少年愚連隊 血煙り純情篇 Kishiwada Shonen Gurentai: Chikemuri Junjo-hen) is a 1997 Japanese film based on a Riichi Nakaba novel and directed by Takashi Miike.


A group of friends who have recently graduated from high school have always gotten by in life by using their fists, either to protect themselves or to make money. When one of them falls in love with a girl who doesn't want him to fight anymore, his friends don't quite understand his new pacifist mentality.
