What if roller skates had high power engines that enabled the skaters to do stunning new tricks that defy gravity? What if you saw a beautiful girl effortlessly glide through the air with them? To Ikki, this is reason enough to secretly borrow a pair of Air Treck skates, and step into an underground world filled with gang fights and strange customs. Enamored with high-flying stunts and the flirtatious Simca, Ikki forms an Air Treck gang of his own and starts a life of fighting rival gangs and flying over the rooftops, chasing the girl always one kick ahead of him.

Tenjho Tenge

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.

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 Air Gear and Tenjho Tenge are anime that have a male protagonist who tries to become the best that he can be. You can sum these series up with two words: action and ecchi. They both also have at least two woman with large breasts around the main character, one of which likes him. Adding to that, both of these anime are created by the same mangaka, Oh! Great. So, if you have seen one of these and liked it, you would definitely enjoy watching the other.


Silly characters and serious combat are the combination that makes both these series so entertaining. Air Gear is all about style, the extravagant finishing moves, the sense of honour to one's team, and crazy humour - and that's exactly what you'll get with Tenjho Tenge. With both you can just sit back, laugh, and enjoy the ride.


Both Tenjou Tenge and Air Gear were originally mangas by Oh! Great. Both have amazing fights and beautiful, interesting character designs. There's also a good amount of strategy, and of course the main character who knows nothing about anything at the beginning. And a good amount of fanservice. ;)


Both set in secret clubs within school, the characters in both Air Gear and Ten Ten are the cool, charismatic kids you wanted to be when you were younger. Starting from the bottom of the pile, the shows follow the male character fighting his way to become the best in his field.

An abunbance of action, a plethora of panty-shots and a mass of mirth will ensure fans of one will love the other.


Air Gear and Tenjou tenge are extremely similar in many ways. Both have combinations of rookies reaching for the top, love triangles and include so many great supporting characters that help liven up the entire anime ;)


Both series are all about using style to fight, some rather nice moves, and quite a bit of humor and ecchi if you care about that.  Both series also feature school kids who start out near the bottom and the battles they fight as they try to make it to the top.


High school gangs, girls with epic hair, and ecchi galore. The main character is trying to make his own way, and he's got some strong opponents. Drama, unrequited love, and humor thrown in for good measure, these pair of anime are a good match. 


if you like one you'll like the other, since they both have not so interesting stories, awesome fights, similar protagonist and ecchi stuff

Eureka Seven

Eureka Seven

Like most boys his age, the young Renton thinks of nothing but reffing – riding trapar waves on a board – and idolizes Holland, the leader of the renegade group of reffers named Gekko State. As an orphan of a famous hero, he lives a boring life with his grandfather until the beautiful Eureka crashes, literally, into his life. Now, with the help of his newfound friend and crush, Renton finds himself living amongst the crew of Gekko State. The errands are hard and the bullying is fierce, but with Eureka by his side, Renton just might find the courage to tough it out and even save the world!

Air Gear and Eureka Seven are two shows that I think anyone can like. The both have a love story that you can get wrapped up in as well as character depth and development. In Air Gear it the development is on the main character and his interactions with the ones closets to him and the ones that try to protect him. In Eureka Seven the development of the character comes to life when the world is at war and change is needed to get through the tough times. Both serious have action and sometimes comedy while Air Gear has more of the latter. The emotions that the characters express and feel will hit you the viewer sometimes when you don't even expect it and other times you will. One thing that they both share in common is their ideas on personal transport and their methods. One has you flying around on personal air boards and the other on your own motor powered skates. If you like high flying adventures, love, depth to your characters and a little laughter then watch either one of these shows. There is a small warning as some episodes of Air Gear contain swearing and covered nudity.


Both of these animes are visibaly the same, the animation fairly new, and in many cases the plot is to. Both are about sport-related things to a degree, reffing and trekking are similar sports at time, speed and powerwise. Both animes also have great action sequences, as well as emotional, slightly sentimental parts at times.


Both shows deal with tools that are used in order to allow humans to fly. Groups form; one "prodigal" child comes from nowhere and sweeps the world by storm.


Both Air Gear and Eureka Seven focus on a young boy who is incredibly determined to succeed. In Air Gear's case, it's Ikki, a young boy who just wants to be amazing at Air Trek and in the case of Eureka Seven it's Renton, a boy who has fun by lifting. Both of the series are full of action and maybe a few crushes. They both hae great art styles and are highly recommended.


Both anime put a fantasy spin on extreme sports, Air Gear is to Roller blades and E7 is to Surfing. Thats the obvious comparison. I also think the the story builds in a similar way with the main characters wanting to live life in there own way. both are very fun anime that makes you really root for the main characters and their passion. If you liked one, you would definitely like the other.


Both stories are about a young boy who is a little naive and is sometimes easily fooled by others...he is however, very very good at what he does best and also has (eventually) a group of friends that truly care for him (and vice versa)...I personally found both series very entertaining, with some tremendous action scenes along with some really laugh-out-loud moments

Although, Air Gear does not have a "proper" ending (the story continues in the manga), Eureka Seven has a very fitting ending (although some may suggest the story could've been a little shorter - it was fine for me though)

Overall, however, there's much to like about both series and despite the obvious differences (story, Air Gear has more ecchi, etc), I personally enjoyed both series and open-heartedly recommend them both.


Both Air Gear and Eureka Seven have fairly young protagonists that learn to use equipment that allows them to fly. For Eureka Seven, that's an advanced form of skateboard. For Air Gear, that's an advanced form of roller blades. Each anime has a wide range of characters with varying motives. Among these characters are the protagonist's families, which hold secrets tied to the plotline. If you like a little action, a little drama, and some comedy, you'll like either anime.

Standing at seven feet tall, she has the ability to seemingly fly through the air. Trying to attain the highest level of excitement and tension, she searches for stronger opponents. Will she find them or will they find her first, as they fight it out in the aerial arena?

Both Air Gear and Air Master have those mind-blowing moves in the air. I guarantee you that you will love it as I did.


Like the mind-blowing ( combat ) moves? Then you will definitely love this series. Both Ikki and Maki make wonderfull moves in the air. If you like the one, you will like the other.


Both of these animes display extreme competitiveness. They have similar humor that keeps you laughing for hours. Great intro and outro songs. Plots and storylines keep your adrenaline constantly pumping. These animes are great to watch while you're working out.


Some crazy action and fights, trying to prove who's the best. Yea, that's what both of these anime are bout. There's almost none similiarity in terms of plot but the action makes up for it.


Both series have similar feel to them, utilizing the street for combat, both using aerial combat and swift movements. The main characters are also similar as they have to fight their way to the top.


Both of these anime emphasize almost super-human physical skills that seem amazing and yet just-about within grasp realistically, adding a great touch of realism to skills performed that just look stunning.

They are also about self-discovery through performing a certain art, be it futuristic skating or street-fighting, as is the case here, and emphasize friendship and self-improvement.

Both anime are really quite great, and should be watched together, methinks.

Both Air Gear and Bleach are about a thug-like male lead discovering a society made up of squads/teams and getting into battles. Sure, one's about swords and the others about some sort of roller-skate hybrid, but the two are actually pretty similar.


If you like Air Gear or Bleach you'll probably like the other. The main characters are really similar, and even though Air Gear is a much shorter series than Bleach they have the same feel. If you like the down time in Bleach you'll enjoy Air Gear. If you liked Air Gear Bleach will definitely hold your attention.


Both Air Bear and Bleach have a lot of action that will often take steps away from the plot in order to show off fancy moves. There's a bit of ecchi involved, more so in Air Gear than Bleach. The protagonists start out as street fighters with little knowledge of the world that they stumble upon. With a strong cast of supporting characters, these protagonists set some lofty goals. The animation style is also similar, with the characters pulling faces for comedic affect. 


Both Air Gear and Bleach are very clear cut shounens. Both have a main character finding out he is special, getting stronger, making enemies and becoming incredibly strong in a short amount of time. Air Gear has quite a bit of fanservice compared to Bleach but it is by no means a harem. Watch if you enjoy action anime that has particular emphasis on 'gut' and determination.

Like the mind-blowing ( combat ) moves? Then you will definitely love this series. Both Ikki and Kenichi have to stuggle with opponents and friends to do what they want, and fight for their own "freedom".


Both series start with your average person. No different from you and me, but once they set a goal on their mind, they stop at nothing until they reach it. For Ikki Sky King, for Kenichi, it's all about protecting others. Becoming Stronger in order to protect the one's you Love.


Both of these animes feature a protagonist whom goes from zero to hero over the course of the anime. Both start out with little experience in their chosen field, but quickly climb the ranks through battles and training. Both anime feature broad casts of characters, gang battles, and plenty of backstory. If you like one, you'll probably like the other. 


they both are hilarious at times but have some serious parts to them in which the action is amazing. So if your looking for something to keep you interested the whole time and keep you laughing along the way you should seriously watch one of these.
