Bleach

Bleach

Fifteen-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a typical teen with fighting skills, two caring sisters and a special trait: he can see ghosts. However, when Ichigo and his family find themselves under attack by a huge beast, Ichigo discovers that there’s more to the supernatural world than the everyday specter. Vengeful spirits known as Hollows roam the world in search of devouring souls, and Shinigami – soul reapers – work tirelessly to defeat them and guide normal ghosts into a place called Soul Society. Ichigo valiantly fights the Hollow that threatens his sisters, but on the verge of defeat a Shinigami named Rukia gives him her powers, turning him into a Shinigami himself. Ichigo must now adjust to his new life of both vanquishing and saving souls for the sake of Soul Society.

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.

Ben-To

Ben-To

After collapsing in the street bloodied and battered, You Satou has no recollection of what happened to him – the only thing he remembers is going to the supermarket to buy a bento lunchbox. After having bizarre encounters the entire following day including a stern warning to stay away from the store, You returns that night to buy dinner. But when he spies the shelf of half-priced bento and reaches out for one, the penniless teen finds himself thrust into a world where the rush to get a good deal becomes an epic battle in which only the strongest survive…

A normal kid, just minding his buiness, gets involved in a competition that he had no clue about. So upon trying it, he quickly excels and gains the respect of his peers as well as the girl at the top of the food chain that he lusts after; if only his bad luck and perverse tendencies did get him into so much trouble.

Even so, win or lose, he's gonna try his best and not take any short cuts to the top, becaise if he didn't give his all, it wasn't worth doing!

So, am I talking about Satou or Ikki?  Why don't you watch the other one and see for yourself.

Both are about a guy who gets caught in a crazy compition where people fight over something that most people don't usually fight about. Of course the main character is naturally good at it an excells at a crazy speed. Still both Ben-To and Air Gear are highly entertaining.

If you liked Ben-to then i myself would also strongly recomend Air Gear not that they are totaly the same but they have the same kind of "Aura" and it's one of the most important part when making a recommendation after my mening

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.
