From the creator of "The 7 Deadly Sins", this is one of the most over the top battle mangas you'll ever read! Kongo Bancho is essentially a tournament style series with participants being Banchos (delinquent leaders). Akira Kongo is our leading hero who does not sway from his old fashioned convictions of honor & chivalry. His goal is to stop the conquest of Japan so he participates in the tourny, fighting against various martial arts & ludicrous opponents such as a giant shark, an android, hot blooded women, a giant cow, manly men & he even fights a mecha!!

I noticed this manga haven't been talked about enough, kinda sad since Kongoh Bancho is easily one of the best mangas I've read to date. Brief summary:

Akira Kongoh (the main character) has one goal: to end the "23 District Project" (a project made by the Japanese govt. where humans w/ insane superhuman abilities - known w/ the common term Bancho, fight for control of all the districts).

Both mangas have a lot of fighting over some territory or position. Very delinquent-esque, but also with lots of side character comedy, light moments, superhuman abilities and so on. If you like one you will likely like the other.
Both are shonen series which expresses manliness through heroic feats and outrageous battles. There's plenty of creativity found in both manga, especially with the usage of delinquent characters.
