To make money, she takes on suspicious jobs in addition to being Ryuji's bodyguard, but always ends up in trouble.

Both have to do with a girl hiding her gender, whom is also a body guard. With a strong femal lead. Both have gansters and fighting. If you like one you will like the other.
Both have women concealing their gender and acting as male bodyguards in order to survive. Both are quite dramatic and serious and a bit on the mature side especially Tokyo Crazy Paradise. If you liked one you'll most definitely enjoy the other. However, if you have any issues with nudity, then Tokyo Crazy Paradise isn't for you most likely. You see the main character's boobs quite a few times. I guess just to "prove" that they're there...
Each story is focused on the orphan female main characters that have to hide the fact they are girls by pretending to be boys. The story line for both revolves are around each girl having to protect someone close to them by being a personal body guard for people that are closely tied to gangs.
Its very dangerous if the fact that they are girls is found out but both girls happen to bery tough as they have been raised to fight and act like boys since childhood.
Simply put if you like the drama, action, and romace of Love in the Mask then you will like the same for Tokyo Crazy Paradise and vice versa, of course.

Since nobody else has made any reccomendations, i thought i should... the girls in both of these manga must hide there true identity, even though Hana Kimi has a much lighter feel to it, Love in the Mask is also a really good manga, definetly more mature though.... i highly recommend them both, i cant wait to find out what happens next in Love in the Mask!
They are pretty much the same story. Just Hana-Kimi is lighter hearted.
minimum of 100 characters
Yooi is a poor yet optimistic girl who lives from hand to mouth and wants nothing more than to pay off her father’s debts so they can be a family again. Lida is a rich, stuck-up heiress whose life of privilege has left her heartless and feeling entitled to get whatever she wants. While these two girls would seem to have nothing in common, they share one identical thing: their appearance. And since Lida has been getting death threats, she hires Yooi to be her body double. Yooi is eager to earn the money, but soon finds herself in the path of danger, and in the arms of Lida’s fiancé – a man she’s steadily falling in love with...
In addition to both being manhwa, they have a pretty similar feel - a girl must act as a boy and also a badass fighter, with plenty of danger in the way. Beyond that the stories aren't very similar, but I do think fans of one would appreciate the other.
Both put a huge accent on the pain, suffering and struggle the girls must go through in order to get their happily ever after. During the trails both girls are willing to sacrifice themselves(numerous times) for their loved ones but the stubborn prince charming never gives up their undying love.

Ida is forced to do anything and everything that Mimi commands her to - or else her family will be thrown out into the streets! However, she can let off some steam by dressing up as a guy and fighting neighborhood delinquents. Ida’s become such a skilled fighter that guys come from all around to brawl with her male alter-ego “Yodah Choi”. But with delinquents obsessively challenging her and Mimi refusing to let her have any time for herself, how long can Ida keep her double life a secret?
Both of these manga are about a girl who is forced to work of a rich girl do to tragic circumstances. Both man charcaters are great fighters who dress up as a boy for some reason. In both, the girl falls in love with a guy who thinks she is a guy. Both have a vey dramtic, serious tone to them. The relationship between the rich girl and main character is a lot better in Love in the Mask, and Dedicated to Roses is the more light hearted of the two (in my opition), but if you liked one, it is very likely you will like the other.
Both are manhwa, and gender bender manga. They both a female main character serving another girl. Both main characters are good fighters that fall in love with a boy, even though it is forbbiden. Due to similar art styles, characters and plot, you would probably like both manhwas
Ever since the day Ran Kurono's older brother, was killed while protecting Sei Ohtori, she has dedicated her skills and life to one day becoming the First Knight of the next head of the Ohtori family, even concealing the fact that she's a woman forever.

Not only that, but Sei is being tested to see if she is suitable for having the title of head of the family. Upon entering Saint Locks Academy, the days of both Ran and Sei's trials begin, all the while being helped by Sei's untidy and unrefined fiance, Ibara Tennou.
Both are body guard gender-benders where the main character has a close friendly relationship with their female body. In both manga the main characters come out of their shells and fall in love, but fear the consquences of living like a girl. Love in the Mask is more dramtic and sad then Hana no Kishi, but if you liked one there is a good chance you will like the other.
