Air Gear and IGPX both have an incredibly similar tone and feel. In addition to being about a high-action and unusual "sport", each has a unique and techno/hip-hop influenced soundtrack. I'd definitely recommend one to a fan of the other.

Both of these shows are incredible. The each have tons of great action, and a very rare high dosage of character development done "right". I highly recommend both of these shows.

Both are about sports that while they aren't what you would see in the real world they do hold some similarity to some sports that you see everyday.  Sports that have been taken to something of an extreme and full of action.  If you liked one then you should really consider checking out the other.

Both animes are about progressing beyond the main character's initial limitations. The characters are different, but they both end up fighting in groups/guilds/legions over territory. Accel World gave me a vague nostalgia, reminding me of Air Gear a lot. They just each have their own unique flavor.

There are a lot of parallels with the series. The main character starts from nothing and wants to get faster and fly, there is also a similar competition/tournament thing going on.

Air Gear and Accel World share that people can fight when they challange eachother. But instead of using an armour in a videogame they use rollerblades

Are you a fan of fun? Do you enjoy watching things that put a smile on your face? Well both of these shows have plenty of laughs and will both "show you a good time" if you know what I mean. The stories aren't too similar, but if you're a fan of the action and comedy in one you will enjoy the other.

Naruto and Air Gear seem to be, at first glance, from two opposite ends of the spectrum. In reality though, they're alot alike in plot, characters and even artwork (to an extent). The story of both is the main protagonist who (at the beggining) is a total misfit that knows nothing about anything, creating real problems for them. But with the help of 3 other MAIN friends (yes, even the numbers are the same) they learn to get better and are both striving for the top (In Ikki's case, Sky King, in Naruto's case Hokage) and come closer and closer with each passing episode. In both anime you watch the characters grow and are easily able to connect with them. Though Naruto doesn't have the Ecchi of Air Gear and Air Gear doesn't have the weapons of Naruto, they're very similar with plot (like I just explained) and they both have solid fight scenes (though Naruto's are more intense and longer, While Air Gear has more of a street fighting esq to it thats more "Get it done and win quickly") They both have their funny moments that'll have you and your friends laughing forever (well hopefully not that long, but you get the point.) Really the main difference is (besides what the characters are trying to accomplish) that Air Gear is made for a slightly older audiance (13-16 and up) because of the Ecchi and swearing where as Naruto is made for people around the age of 11-13 and up, since there's no swearing in the dub, and very little in the sub (save for moments of extreme perril) and all the nudity is covered up. These anime go together like Red and Black, like Cookies and Milk, like...like...well I'm running out of analogies, but they go together very well and if you enjoyed one, its a MUST to watch the other.

Air Gear, and Ride Back, both anime have something revolving around "Roads", as well as both have racing, talent, and involve flips very few people can seem to do. If you like one, you will probably like the other..

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Both of these anime involve the protagonist becoming involved in a "sport" that involves high-powered machines. However, they come head-to-head with the other "players" because of their (the protagonist's) unique style. There is also a running plot about the government's desire to regulate the machines in both anime.
