In the city of Ergastulum, a shady ville filled with made men and petty thieves, whores on the make and cops on the take, there are some deeds too dirty for even its jaded inhabitants to touch. Enter the "Handymen," Nic and Worick, who take care of the jobs no one else will handle. Until the day when a cop they know on the force requests their help in taking down a new gang muscling in on the territory of a top Mafia family. It seems like business (and mayhem) as usual, but the Handymen are about to find that this job is a lot more than they bargained for.

Gangsta, a series centered on two jack-of-all-trades/hired guns Worick and Nicolas. The beginning of the story starts out with an introduction into the everyday lives of these two "Handymen," going about doing jobs for a police chief. The city in which they operate, Ergastulum, is reminiscent of Basin City of Frank Miller's Sin City, with much crime and gangs on every street corner. It's normally Worick and Nicolas's job to handle jobs cops or most other people wouldn't take.

The fights in this series are what you'd expect of a manga series like this, brutal and fast, from Nicolas's samurai sword decapitating enemies to Worick's blasting read more

Gangsta is your overall enjoyable manga.

The story involves around two guys that work for an assassination organization, it's nothing original, but what is now and days? Besides, Kosuke adds in her own plot twists here and there to keep the reader interested.

In the story, the two main male characters Nicolas and Warrick, have dark pasts, which are revealed bit by bit, but not all at once and they have side jobs that they do extra to get by in their town of crime and mafias. Then there's Alex, who is trying to make her life right, but is psychologically haunted and disturbed by read more

Even though there are only a few chapters of Gangsta ist pretty similar. characters are similar. eyepatchys that smoke to much- there almost identical.
Both manga contain characters, with their past dark and painful. They all commit crimes and do dirty work just to get by. Despite committing heinous crimes, they are renowned in their field of expertise. If you enjoy a manga that holds the truth of the world, where people lose their lives and where you can see how people are truly greedy, these mangas both fit the criteria quite well. Both main characters are very good fighters.
