Sun Ken Rock is about a Japanese man named Ken. Ken's love interest Yumin moves to Korea to become a police officer, and Ken follows her to impress her with success. In a ridiculously short time he becomes the leader of one of the largest criminal organizations in the world, with a shitload of some of the most insane plot twists and over the top martial art fights I have ever seen in a manga in between. Make no mistake that this is predominantly an action manga, but by no means does that mean the characters were left out of the loop. Ken is like read more

One of my favorite manga's so far. Sun-ken rock is a manga that gives good balance, with action/comedy/ecchi and a very great story behind it surprisingly. Also the story brings great character the developments along the way, with great resolve coming from the main character Ken. All in all without giving to much of spoilers this is a story about a guy who falls for a girl that he would do anything for even if he has to become a gang leader knowing shes a cop. Which brings some good comedy and suspense with big surprises and not knowing what will happen next in upcoming read more

I have to say the personally this is one of my favourite manga's that I have read although sometimes I think they go over the top with ecchi.

Story: 7/10
I would not say that it had the best story but it certainly provides and entertaining story. its about a girl who goes to Korea to become a cop and Ken who is a delinquent who follows her which I find a little bit weird but who cares. During his time in Korea ken becomes a boss of a gang I found this to be funny but serious a lot of the times. read more

This looks like even after only two chapters its going to be something really really great.

Basically, this Korean girl attends a Japanese school , where one of the locals fall for her.Problem is she wants to be a cop in Korea and hes a hoodlum .
Following her dread she actually leaves and becomes a cop.
Deciding to follow her to Korea , with the view of becoming a cop , he ends up by default becoming the head of the local gang! classic!

The comedy read more

Not only are these two works by the same author but they also portray a similar style in terms of their characteristics. The main male protagonist has a tough attitude and is always finding himself in the wrong place at the wrong time in compromising situations. Despite this, they fight for what they believe in and also meets a girl that they share an interesting relationship with. There is a lot of fan service and action so expect some edgy artwork. If you're into action oriented manga with tough stories, then check these two series out.
I find it similar because of it's plot and the main characters.
Both of the MC involvement in yakuza's, police and other organizations are so similar.
and not to mention the art looks good too!they both also start strong from the very start. but has a "character growth or development" :D

*they don't have the same author and artist btw :D
You might not see the similarities in the beginning, and even though there are definitely more differences than similarities, I had to recommend this because of my love of both manga. First, I hardly ever read shounen manga, so these manga either have an amazing plot, or just really funny. Both manga have both these traits. Both the main protagonist life seems to be going no where. Until they both meet a girl that essentially motivates them to do what they're good at. Sun Ken? Fighting. Slam Dunk? Basketball. Friendship, courage, strength, love, and motivation are big parts of both the stories. And of course, the AMAZING plot and comedy. Don't get me wrong. The plot in both stories are completely different.
Sun-Ken Rock is pretty much Onizuka moving to Korea and starting a gang in an M rated manga. The humor is pretty similar, and although Ken isn't as much of a loser as Onizuka, they both share some character traits, such as being virtuous fighting machines, with a perverted side.
If you're looking for some action and violence, then Gangsta and Sun-Ken Rock may be something to keep a keen eye on. Both series takes place in a setting where there is violence, politics, and corruption. The main characters also gets involved with local gangs that spawns rivalries with deadly consequences. There is character dynamics as well focusing on the main protagonists. Recommended for mature fans of action-drama.
Both portray the mafia, gang, and family setting throughout the story with all the problems and situations you might expect in that way of life. Very similar characteristics with multiple characters, they also have the same feel of humor and comedic scenes. In both stories it seems to always be good vs evil in almost every conflict that accrues.
