Both Black Lagoon and Jormungand are manga about a group of mercenaries of sorts. Lagoon Company in Black Lagoon does jobs ranging from smuggling, pirating to escorting and all of those contain a fair amount of gunfights. The group from Jormungand is in arms trading business, so what they mainly do is smuggling and theft (not so far from pirating). I don't think I need to mention that those also involve lots of gunfights. If you think that such groups can only consist of people who can't really be called normal, than your right on your money. Anyway, as you can see those series are similar, so you really should go read one if you liked the other.

If you liked this, you'd like this! Both from the same magazine they feature similar takes on the dark underworld of crime with mercs and arms dealers. With similar interactions between the team to contstant high paced action you wont be disappointed.

These series are so similar that there is even a crossover manga written by one of the mangaka. Excellent mix of action and comedy, with compelling, unique characters, and a fun take on the world of international crime.

Both Arms Peddler and Jormungand (as you can probably guess) are about weapon merchants. Both of those manga also feature a young boy who joins an older female weapon merchant and thats all you need to know from this recommendation.

Grach Grach says...

Both Kiba no Tabishounin and Jormungand have a young kid who joins with an older woman and travel the world (in high action ways). In both, the older woman just so happens to be an arms/weapons dealer who give musings upon their work.

Certainty Certainty says...

  Both jormungand and marginal operation feature modern contractors in a realistic setting with realistic weapons. Well, plausible setting. But they are very very similar in many different ways: child soldiers, mercenary, central Asia, decent realism, a relatable characters, a light adventure feel, etc.

It is always a struggle to find this type of manga, so I hope you enjoy them both as much as I have.

Gangsta.

Gangsta.

In the city of Ergastulum, a shady ville filled with made men and petty thieves, whores on the make and cops on the take, there are some deeds too dirty for even its jaded inhabitants to touch. Enter the “Handymen,” Nic and Worick, who take care of the jobs no one else will handle. Until the day when a cop they know on the force requests their help in taking down a new gang muscling in on the territory of a top Mafia family. It seems like business (and mayhem) as usual, but the Handymen are about to find that this job is a lot more than they bargained for.

Guns, fighting, intriguing character development and drama.... check, check, and check.

The only downside is that Gangsta is really, really slow to update.

Ice Blade Diablo

Ice Blade Diablo

The case files of the detectives at the Shinjuku Police Station paint an unapologetic picture of the worst of human nature, the horrors of everyday life, and the people that are the products of them. In this society, abused children grow up twisted, and traumatized victims turn to violence for revenge. The line between victim and criminal is often blurred when even the worst offenders are those society once failed to save. Left behind in the passing of the years, former detective Iida Kyouya must once more pick up his gun.

Gunsmith Cats: Burst

Gunsmith Cats: Burst

Rally Vincent and Minnie-May Hopkins are two regular American girls. Regular American girls who own a gun shop, and might have dabbled in prostituion, respectively. And who happen to be a crack shot and an explosives expert, respectively. These might be odd skills for American girls, but these two happen to be Chicago's top bounty hunters. Rally can shoot the trigger off a gun from a good distance, and May generally wreaks havoc with explosions and cuteness. And together, with some very useful friends and associates, they make up the Gunsmith Cats.

Meisai-kun

Meisai-kun

All problems are made to be solved by excessive use of military weaponry! Or, at least, that's what college student Nomoto-kun seems to believe. He's commonly called "Meisai-kun" (Camouflage-kun) by his classmates, due to the fact that he wears fatigues to class every day. Whether it's helping a classmate throw off a stalker, killing a wild animal, or going to the beach on holiday, Meisai-kun, his overly-militaristic friends and his enviable stash of weapons (and live ammo) are up to the task! His friends from class, two relatively normal girls called Tomo and Rie, keep him more or less connected to his normal life as a college student. Unfortunately, they often find themselves being pulled into his ridiculous, over-dramatic, military-esque situations!
