A handsome gangster can make a romance manga even better.
In this article, I’m going to talk about the best Mafia Romance Manga I could find, if there are some good manga that I missed then let me know in the comments.
Just so you know, most of the items in this list are BL Manhwa.
1. Honto Yajuu
37+ Chapters [Ongoing]
Police officer Ueda caught an underwear thief one night after he saw the victim yelling and chasing the thief. The guy he helped was none other than Aki Gotouda, a yakuza member and the future leader of the Gotouda group.
The next morning, he gets a visit from Gotouda who fell in love with him at first sight. Now every day Gotoudo finds a new reason to come meet him at the police station.
Honto Yajuu is a really good slice-of-life BL manga where the male leads get together in the first chapter.
There’s also a demon romance manga by the same author that I highly recommend.
2. Yakuza Fiancé: Raise wa Tanin ga Ii
35+ Chapters [Ongoing]
The Somei yakuza and the Miyama yakuza family have been at odds for a long time. They finally call for a truce and decide to arrange a marriage between their heirs.

This is the best Yakuza manga you will ever read with a handsome male lead and a strong female lead, but not the shoujo girl trope kind of strong.
