List Rules Vote up the best manga featuring the yakuza.

The Yakuza, also known as the Japanese mafia, is a prime subject for exciting manga stories. If you love reading about the complexities of gang warfare, use this list to help you find exciting new yakuza manga that you aren't familiar with.

There are plenty of great manga about The Yakuza to choose from. If you prefer a more serious take on the subject, try Kaiji, which follows the title character through the nightmarish process of trying to pay back his debt to the mob. If you'd prefer a light-hearted approach to the Yakuza genre, Hinamatsuri - a manga about a yakuza member who finds himself in charge of a young girl with psychic powers.
