Synopsis

Hanza Ryunosuke, nicknamed the Blood Dragon, has always been a street fighter. His short temper has him picking fights with anyone and, to top it all off, he has never lost. Now that he's attending Mikado High School, he wants to change his ways and fall in love with a girl. However, he finds it hard to escape from his reputation and none of his classmates want to associate themselves with him.

Then one day, he meets someone significantly stronger than him and, to his surprise, it is a beautiful girl named Fujiki Honami from the Karate Club. Hanza falls instantly in love with her. To his dismay, Fujiki hates Hanza because he uses his strength for violence. In order to prove himself to her and to become stronger, Hanza joins the Karate Club. No one believes he can become good, but they don't know how much perseverance and dedication Hanza truly has.

Don't be quick to decide this manga is not good because it is about fighting/sports. Both genres are very interesting and hold more to them then just their label.

Hanza sky is a recommendation you can find if you like hajime no ippo.

Hanza sky is about karate unlike ippo which is about boxing. hanza is a strikingly well series about the art of karate.

this manga follows a boy who is known as a "delinquent" and has always gotten in fights during his middle school years. he tries to find love and creates a new image in highschool; from there hanza gets into a fight and read more

Both titles revolve around male protagonists who develop a passion for a sport (boxing in Hajime no Ippo and karate in Hanza Sky). We follow their development which is often showcased through the natural sequence of training and competitive participation.
Both feature a character that's helplessly in love with a girl that has extremely good martial arts skills, that has inspired them to fight or change their direction in life.
Very similar Characters, Hanza = Gama - banba = Zenmaru - Iori = Aoyagi, They both involve Schools fighting each other, Hanza and Gama are very strong characters from the begining, thay both are very GOOD to read, ENJOY.
Martial arts manga centering on karate - both HanzaSky and Full Contact are shounen mangas of young guys training hard to become stronger and better martial artists. They differ in the art types. Full Contact has cleaner art, while Hanza Sky's art is rough but energetic. Hanza Sky has a delinquent turning to martial arts while Full Contact is more about a guy's growth from starting in the martial arts more traditionally. They are complete but all the translations are done on Full Contact a while ago while Hanza Sky has had lags in translations but started up again.
If you like HanzaSky you might want to go on to reading Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru. First of all these are both martial arts, sports manga featuring karate and training to be stronger. However, Karate is a more mature manga that is a seinen and it's much longer at 500 chapters. But if you enjoy sports manga and martial arts manga try both of these. We see a lot more development of Minoru in 500 chapters of course and it's art, detailing muscles and fights is very strong and well drawn. Sometimes the seinen contains eechi and mature themes. They are both completed in Japan but both still being translated to English.
In both, the male protagonist develops a strong interest towards a sport; so much so that he joins a club which participates in competitive tournaments.
