When Gangryong was in middle school, a powerful martial artist named Yoochun saved him from a group of bullies. Eager to become stronger, the boy begged Yoochun to train him; and after several years of preparation, the man finally agrees to teach him his special skill, Lightning Fist. But soon, Gangryong is approached by a seedy organization named Reunion with a message: Yoochun is dead by their hands, and as his successor, the boy must become a member of Reunion. Once he becomes as strong as his deceased mentor, Gangryong can know more about Yoochun's death. And so, the would-be martial artist heads to a special school for Reunion candidates, eager to fight foes and allies to prove his strength along the way.
Shi-Woon is desperate. He's constantly bullied and getting beat up at school by a gang of thugs, and is on the verge of suicide. Sick of being weak and helpless, the boy turns to the only person he knows who can help: Chun-Woo, a powerful martial artist and also his new teacher. But Chun-Woo won't take Shi-Woon under his wing so easily, and little does the teenager know about how his would-be mentor acquired his fighting talents...
Veritas and The Breaker, have pretty much the same awesome mind-blowing plot. Veritas starts off with a kid whose tough but wants to be stronger, and The Breaker starts off with a kid whose weak but wants to be stronger. Both the guys meet incredible masters of martial arts and beg to become there disciples. The masters in these two Manwhas also look very much alike and are badass.
After all said and done, the two boys in different manga come into incredible techniques. The arts wonderfully drawn and everyone should give these two mangas a chance.
The breaker and veritas are both great manwahs in their own rights. Very similar story lines, that still goes in somehow completely different directions. If it's the basic concepts (ie, older student learning a martial arts from a reknown master and slowly becoming stronger) that attracts you to one, then you will definetely love the other
Both start with normal young guys that get sucked into an extravagant world of inhuman martial arts upon meeting mysterious people who turn out to be famous in the fighting world. The art and fights are great, and it's interesting to see how the students progress in their plight to become as strong as their legendary teachers.
Veritas feels a little more like Tenjho Tenge, but both of these manga focus on a weak kid who begs a strong mentor to help train him in martial arts, with similar art styles and themes along the way.
Very similar, with great characters, fights, and some epic moments. This martial arts manhwa also has the same premise - with a focus on the master/disciple relationship. Both Veritas and the Breaker has a few comedic scenes which alleviate the tension created by the focus on martial arts.
Great Series, both of them.
Gamaran and Veritas are both fast paced, martial arts manga. The main similarity in these mangas are that Gangryong and Gama want to be the best. They both go up against opponents everyone thinks they cant beat just to enhance there martial arts. Gama enters a competition where he owns everyone and moves up in skill. Gangryong enters a school where he beats people and eventually develops his power on par with other high members. Action packed martial arts manga, it couldn't get much better.
Shirihama Kenichi is a weak scaredy-cat, and his status as the karate club's punching bag has earned him the name of ‘Weak Legs'. One day Kenichi meets Miu and, impressed by her skill after she effortlessly throws him to the ground, he follows her to the Ryouzanpaku dojo. There he finds five great masters of martial arts, and driven by his desire to become stronger, he begs them to accept him as their student - though it won't be easy. Kenichi endures harsh training (and injury) from Akisame - the philosophizing Jujitsu master; Apachai - the Muay Thai ‘God of Death'; Kensei - the ecchi Chinese Kempo Master; and Shigure - the weapons prodigy. Finally after proving his determination, he is accepted by Shio - the 100-dan Karate Master, who had initially wanted nothing to do with him. Now Kenichi walks the long and arduous path to becoming a master himself, all whilst trying to protect those he cares about from anyone who would dare to harm them.
Both anime are focused on martial arts and the main character is suddenly taken to somewhere to to learn martial arts and eventually after a few months they become so strong that they can take down people who've been training all their lives and eventually fight against another group other than theirs.
Toudou Gakuen is no ordinary high school. There, during the Meiji Restoration, fighting masters were forced to gather from all over Japan to re-establish the martial arts. Amongst the student body is a group of immensely powerful fighters who maintain order through absolute power. This "Enforcement Group" is locked in a feud with the Jyuuuken Club over matters of love and death. Now, two newcomers have disturbed the order of this school, becoming entangled in this vicious feud. Caught between sexy babes and terrible powers, the battle to be the strongest begins!
Both mangas are about someone that wants to become stronger.
Both manga have the same drawing style. And great fighting scenes with Ki attacks etc. If you liked one you will definitly like the other to.
Yuusuke is a street-fighting, class-skipping juvenile delinquent. Killed in an unexpected act of kindness, he thwarts the spirit-world bureaucracy and ends up with a second chance at life... as infant prince of death Koenma's Spirit Detective! Simultaneously cheered on and kept in line by Keiko Yukimura, his childhood friend, he is joined by a spiritually aware human, two demons on parole, and guided by a much too lively ferry girl of the dead. Together they plow through demons, tournaments, hijinks, intense "martial arts" training, cross-dressers, dungeons, conspiracies and bad puns alike. At the end of the day, what's it all for? Kicking butt and saving the world, of course!
Both series are about a teenaged boy who starts out being a top level street fighter/thug and then developes superhuman powers. While the plots of the 2 series are quite different, the focus on fighting and training, and the thug-like attitudes of the main characters are nearly identical.
