Synopsis

After the crime rate began to spiral out of control in the third Toutoh empire, a law was established to help expedite trials and relieve the pressure on the overcrowded prisons, which were filled to the brim with criminals who had been sentenced to life in prison without any chance of parole. According to this new law, trials could still be held and the death sentence could still be given to accused criminals who hadn't been captured yet. Moreover, in order to capture these criminals who had been given a punishment by the courts, the Special Executions police force was created...

In the near future, criminals can be condemned without being present at their trial. Meet the Tokkei, a group of elite executioners whose job is to hunt down and dispose of those who have received the death penalty. Our story mostly follows the first brigade, the best of the Tokkei, as they carry out their missions of justice.

As for the title, the Tokkei have to constantly deal with being called dolls (or "puppets") who mindlessly carry out their executions. Should they bring personal feelings into their grisly work?

This is like a police story (if you've read "Switch," also by Naked read more

Recommendations

Manga: Switch
Action, mystery, police work and colourful characters. All in gorgeous artwork of naked ape. These stories are similar and completely different at the same time. As a huge fan of one I fully enjoyed the other. So it's possible you might too.

The uniforms for the military and Tokei are similar and both manga have seriousness and humor well balanced.
Lastly both manga are filled with hot boys

Manga: Toxic
The uniforms for the Tokei and the Black Rose are very similar and their jobs in punishing criminals which many people opposes. They both have mystery, action and bishounens.

government mandated killing, violence, and you like the characters. Some comedy. Dolls is more dramatic though. 
reportRecommended by Anukul
Manga: D.Gray-man
They have a good balance of humor and drama. The characters all have sad and painfull past and the characters all joined the organisation for a certain purpose. The Tokei uniforms and the Order's uniform are alike. I'm sure if u like one you'd like the other.

Manga: C-blossom: Case 729
Artwork is very similar. Both deal with government organizations and agents. Action, mystery, drama. Missions. C-blossom is fairly short (only 2 volumes). Dolls is *MUCH* more violent and grisly than the other.
