May contain minor spoilers for initial 2-3 chapters.
On a side-note, my first review on MAL.
STORY: Kitano Ken's crush Yoshizawa Yumin, moves to Korea to become a police officer. Following her, Ken moves to Korea as well. However, he is a failure. He meets Park Tae-Soo, leader of a local gang. Tae-Soo tries to convince Ken to become their boss. Ken agrees on something really ridiculous. (Salary what?). So basically, a failure rises from the bottom of scum to the top of the country. So, in my opinion, story is a 9/10.
ART: Each strip of the manga perfectly switches from sadism to beauty to fanservice as read more

**Might contain some spoilers, but I have tried to be discreet about it!**

Even though this series is not completed yet, I felt that writing a review for this w̶a̶s̶t̶e̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶t̶i̶m̶e̶ manhwa was necessary when I noticed the ratings in the 8-10 spectrum (!!?). Don't let the art fool you; this is a shallow, unoriginal, tasteless mess.

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

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

Manga: The Breaker
Although following different premises, both series involves gangs and yakuza. There is a noticeable amount of violent present in both series' storyline to illustrate the brutality of characters' behaviors. The MC gets themselves involved in an event that changes their lives forever. Throughout the course of both series, they also develop relationships with other characters but also faces powerful adversaries. Danger awaits in the lives as they get involved with dangerous conflict. Recommended for a mature audience interested in action/seinen.

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.

very similar art-style, I would say the comedy is similar to something like...bokusatsu tenshi dokuro chan (exaggerated reactions), as well somewhat of a taste of typical harem artstyle i.e. skip beat/ kaicho wa maid sama (where they turn into little cartoon figures). . . Sun-ken Rock takes a lot of art styles from various manga and compiles it into an original plot.

Manga: Heat
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

Manga: Worst
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.

Manga: Slam Dunk
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,  read more
