Both have a lot of fighting and bullying.

In Lookism, Daniel finds himself in a new body which learn new technques easily.

In weak hero, Gray has unique fighting skills based on cunningness...

Kozaya Kozaya says...

Both Lookism and Weak Hero are fighting manga that center around a main character that doesn't seem like they should be strong at first. They both have extremely well thought out characters, interesting stories, and complex dynamics. I absolutely adore them, and 100% recommend both. :)

I dont know, cuz they both involve a lot of gangs, school fights and other school conquering

Ajintook Ajintook says...

If you enjoy Weak Hero than you should also read Lookism, since it similar in term of how the MCs doesn't look like someone who are good at fighting but actually pretty badass at it. The character development for both of the story is nicely done too

korabi korabi says...

Both Lookism and Weak Hero have the same highschool / martial arts mix. They both have gangs and that sort of fighting hierarchy. Overall, both are great. Im not at all a critic but from the standpoint of a reader, I really enjoy and recommend both these mangas.

Viral Hit

Viral Hit

Scrawny high school student Hobin Yoo is probably the last guy you’d expect to star in a NewTube channel that revolves around fighting. But after following some advice from a mysterious NewTube channel, Hobin is soon knocking out guys stronger than him and raking in more money than he could have ever dreamed of. Can Hobin keep this up, or will he eventually meet his match?

Animescient Animescient says...

Both stories starts off with a loser who learns how to fight against the bullies. Along the way these losers make friends with strong guys, and just get way more popular.

feste feste says...

Both are by the same author, and they share a lot of elements such as bullying, popularity, lookism and fighting. Lots of fighting.

Funnily enough, you actually get to see refrences to each other in the actual works, and in Lookism there's actually a panel that shows the main characters of Viral Hit.

mamoko mamoko says...

Both include two 'nerds' or weak characters that are bullied and fall into a form of success when it comes to life/fighting.  Both have good character development of main and side characters, as well as a good dose of humor.

korabi korabi says...

Highschool / martial arts manga. Not going in depth too lazy, but both are good. Recommend both.

Both are created by the same author. It's fight scene are extremely good and a lot of the times they are quite funny too although for lookism its not as funny anymore and much more serious.

Facelift Game

Facelift Game

Being singularly plain, Yi Rong suffered many discrimination in her world. By chance, she downloaded a plastic APP and found that an app could make her look exactly like that in the picture retouched, but if she wants to maintain her good look, she has to fulfill some inhuman tasks and if she quits, she'll pay a more severe price. In this facelift road of no return, what’s on earth waiting for Yi Rong?

Wawa92 Wawa92 says...

I am recommeding these two comics both ways because they each tell the story about how society focuses on physical appearance. In both, the main character is 'ugly', having features that are disparaged and this leads them both to be abused (emotionally/physically). The characters both receive temporary solutions and turn 'beautiful'. They use these to tackle their own self-image issues and overcome their bullies. The major difference is that the main character in Lookism is male, and that of Beauty Game is a female.

One more thing, I dropped Lookism because I did not enjoy it after the first few chapters. I am enjoying Beauty Game much more but I still stand by my recommendation. Coolies.

CallMeMad CallMeMad says...

Both involve an unattractive MC who are bullied because of it, where they eventually become attractive through seemingly "magical" ways. Although in lookism the character instead finds that he now has two bodies, when one is asleep he wake up in the other. While in Beuty game she changes her current body (though only for specific duractions of time).

Both deal with similar topics, involving social commentary on human nature, bullying, stalking, corruption, & other darker elements. Also, both involve intriguing twists relating to the main character’s ability and what it means in the context of the plot. Both have wonderful art, have the Zero to Hero trope (main character starts out as a “loser”), involve a lot of violence / fighting, and a tinge of romance! Two of my favorite reads, ever. Inspiring in their own right.

It's from the same author (but different artists), so they share a lot of elements.

First of all, the type of humour is the same, which I appreciate. It also deals with a weak guy becoming strong (kinda?), and taking over bodies and all that jazz. Overall, they share a very similar tone and if you like one you should at least be okay with the other.

Jiyuetpro Jiyuetpro says...

The director of both of them is the same which is why the humor is also similiar which is nice (although the artstyle is different as the artist is the boyfriend of the creator of True beauty) There are reference to viral hit (one of them is quite obvious too) which is a comic that was created by the author of lookism too. An insane amount of plot twist which always puts you on edgeOverall very nice and the ending is one of the best ending the world of comic has to offer.

Miunohri to Swan

Miunohri to Swan

She is a fat ugly girl with a short body; she's a girl who used to be a loner, loser and always hated by everyone. It only takes one of a stranger's ‘abracadabras’ to turn her into a beauty and to stop the bullying. Though it comes with a price: she can’t kiss "him" or go under any rain, or she'll become ugly again.
