A prevailing theme in both series is the notion of moral justice: Is it right to kill those who are unhealthy to society? It is a rather conflicting statement as often the answer lies in the subjective. This is profoundly highlighted in both series through the characters, views of the general public, and moral consequences and decisions the protagonists have to face.

Vigilante getting rid of the evil on this earth by taking the law in their own hands, awesome action and badass MCs

Both series have ideals of changing peoples lives and society together. Both of the main characters also wears a mask.

Akumetsu and Wolf Guy are both created by the same author and artist, so the art is of course similar, with tons of violence and a struggle that turns more and more desperate as the climax approaches, as the lead is forced to handle the situation without the use of his talents

In both, an attempt is made to answer the question: Can violence shape our moral standards?

Funny twists , gore and violence. Both mangas are about how rotten we humans really are.

Both manga's have something special about them, what makes them really funny and interresting to read. In Lost + brain, a boy wants to attain some power that could allow him to change the world to a world that he wanted.

Fighting against corrupt and evil people! 
reportRecommended by jour
Both series has a more mature setting involving criminals and complicated suspense. Although their premise aren't alike, there's a familiar mood with how both series operates especially when detective work are involved. The main male protagonist in both series also meets a variety of characters that they bond with while adapting with events in the story.

Superheroes and justice are the two central themes of both mangas. Akumetsu appeals to an older audience with a dark and mature tone, while Ratman appeals to a younger audience with a more comedic and light hearted story. Both explore the philosophy of "what is good?" and "what is evil?" but only Akumetsu establishes a clear answer and distinction between the two, while Ratman does so vaguely through it's cheek humor and fanservice.

Both protagonists are seen as evil "superheroes" by society but there is a fundamental difference between the two. Ratman is feared solely because of his monster-like appearance, while Akumetsu is feared  read more

They are great story with many challenges .
Mystery adventure one of the main factors in both stories.
Many secrets about the outside world.

Both are about anti-heroes that kill corrupted people. Despite they are published in shonen magazines, the graphic content could fit more into a seinen magazine. But, while Akame ga Kill take placs in a fantasy setting, Akumetsu do it in comtemporary Japan.

First of all the MCs look very similar not only in appearance but in their personal beliefs. If you want to see a high schooler going against people of higher social standing than him for justice, with good violence, then Akumetsu is a much better alternative. If you liked Akumetsu's action though and would like to add some silly comedy, then Sun-Ken Rock is what you're looking.

When I first saw Akumetsu, I thought it was a Shounen version of ZETMAN, and I was right. Thus, if you like one: You should check the other one also.

Both these series may not seem all that similar to you, but i assure you it's somewhat is.
Both of the protagonist uses harsh methods for justice or show what is right and wrong. In hammer session it's to teach the students what's right and what's wrong and to not do it again, while in Akumestsu it's to show what will happen to those who follow in the footstep of "EVIL".
Both great manga's if you're into complicated things. However Akumestsu is darker and has alot of gore and killing. 
reportRecommended by Duckii
Kurosagi and Akumetsu are similar due to the fact that both main characters want to take down those who take advantage of others/"evil".

They both have the same idea in mind, but Akumetsu kills the "evil". Kurosagi goes down the path of putting the "evil's" game against them. They swindle people, they in turn get swindled.

The character of Akumetsu is somewhat similar to Hiruma Youichi of Eyeshield 21; both are Wicked and tries to bring a Hellish life on someone who opposes them

The judgment and punishment of sinning is the central theme of both of these titles. In Akumetsu, corrupt politicians are killed off one by one by a group of terrorists. In Judge, characters are pushed to sentence others to death for committing one of the seven deadly sins.

Both main characters have weird powers that they use for good,yet in a weird good way. Once you read one of those, and read the other you'll get the feeling of "Akumetsu is like Hentai Kamen, but without the hentai parts." 
reportRecommended by NeonKnight
Both stories are about changing society through terrorism 
reportRecommended by AfterGlow
One student, One cause, "JUSTICE", Eliminating the "Evil" that they decide, while in leaving flashy evidence of their work. Committing crime to solve corruption, while keeping their identities a secret with a mask that barely covers their face. Hidden is their ability of a supernatural power.

Both manga's protagonists tends to teach a lesson, but in a very different way. While Onizuka will let a person to reflect on his actions, Akumetsu will kill them. 
reportRecommended by Wilio
Both Mangas do a great job of exposing ills in the system, where in Akumetsu it's the government and in Medical Dragon it's the Health Organizations.
Although the methodology of the protagonists is very different, the ideals are the same.

Both are great mangas.
