With the exception of a few comedies, like Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, or Cromartie High School, manga and anime primarily set in high school absolutely suck.

The reason for this is simple enough; of all the exciting, interesting places to base a story, high school is just about the worst. Choosing this as a setting is simply pandering to one's audience, nothing more.

However, despite so much working against it, "Veritas" manages to pull this off. This is no ordinary school; it's a place for instructing exceptional fighters, set up by an organization called Reunion, which has mastered biotechnology and robotics at read more

High school is usualy full of bullies, arguments, exam's,60-year-old-hag's, and other realistic/uncool elements. But what about a school where almost every second is spent for fight's? Interested?Then I suggest you step inside the world of Veritas

The Academy where our protoganist studies isn’t your typical high school. It’s ruled by fighting, and The Executive Council (and the teachers) intend to keep it that way. Intimidating and dangerous, they practically rule the academy.

Some of the things to watch out for are: crazy brawls, near-death battles, relationship drama, ripped skirt's(?), special fighting moves and supernatural abilities.

After reading the first six volumes, I asked myself: “Is an read more

So this is actually a manhaw not a manga. So the characters names are a little different then usual. Take Gangryong for example, he's the main character. I don't know why i felt like pointing that out first. Anyways on with the review of the manhaw.

STORY: 8/10
The story is really not outstanding, but its better then a lot of other fighting series' stories. I was suprised that alot of thought was put into the different fighting techniques. Theres literally pages of characters doing nothing, but explaining the different types of ki, fighting styles, elements, etc... It's nothing groundbreaking, but suprisingly good for a fighting manga.

With a premise that may sound overdone (male lead in a supernatural environment going through his high school life trying to get stronger), Veritas really separates itself from the pack (I feel that among many things, one key difference in the way Veritas attacked this genre was that it hardly ever focused on the classroom setting, while still maintaining a school atmosphere). Regardless, Veritas excels at many things us manga (or manwha) lovers enjoy.

The artwork for Veritas is perhaps one of it's highest selling points. I feel it is far above average when it comes to things like anatomy (particularly scaling of read more

Manga: The Breaker
If you Like one then you will like the other, I promise you that. both martil arts, action, school life Manhwas, both protagonists want to get stronger, both have to beg masters to teach them, both get unreal powers. i could keep on going for a while. while they both have simlar settings the story are very different mainly because of the protagonists, one is a strength baka introduced into a world of genius and superhumans. while the other is weaking being pushed into a corner and make to get stronger to protect. the breaker is darker and in more real that veritas. trust me, to love one  read more

Manga: The Breaker: New Waves
Both are similar. Veritas Looks easier to read. Both this manga are Korean.
It looks like copy of the breaker, a good copy I could say.
2 hero looks to gain the power to protect themselves against the better fighters in Murim or in the martial art world.

Manga: Tenjou Tenge
Both are about fighting with supernatural powers, and they are similar somehow to each other 
reportRecommended by silvver
Manga: Aiki
Both feature men which completely believe in their powers, so much that it's gotten to their heads and they're full of arrogance.

Funnily enough, they barely get the beat down they deserve and lay wreck to all their opponents.

If you're looking for a break from the stereotypical "wimpy personality yet insanely strong fighter" type of hero, these two should be both on your list. 
reportRecommended by Sucrose
Manga: Zen Martial Arts Academy
Both manhwa that have protagonists in a somewhat similar setting, both entering a school known for it's martial arts.

Manga: Worst
The main focus of these two titles is on the action. Both are also set within school settings.
