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.

He is even sought by Kuroh Yatogami, a knight of the former Colorless King sworn to slay any unworthy successor. Only, the subject of their struggle, "Shiro", is a nondescript young man living an unremarkable life in an island academy, and seems to have no recollection of killing anyone. To keep his life, Shiro must prove his innocence; but what is the truth behind his mysterious past, and what will be the outcome of this confrontation of Kings?
Both anime have a similar set-up by rank. Kings rule over groups and they fight with each other.
Both series revolve around a set of kings ruling over certain terroritory and groups that fight amongst each other. The major difference is that the main character of Air Gear, Ikki actually takes part in the fighting where as the MC of K, Yashiro does not. While K is more superpower based, Air Gear is more based around extreme physics.

Hunter x Hunter and Air Gear feature an energetic male character that goes beyond everyone's expectations. I found that a lot of characters look similar to each other, and both titles possess a sense of adventure. I personally think Hunter x Hunter is infinitely better, but I enjoyed the battle sequences in Air Gear.

Tokyo Underground and Air Gear have colourful characters, especially the personalities in the girls. Air Gear has "tricks" while Tokyo Underground has supernatural powers. I found that the near-end events resembled one another in both titles, specifically the one-on-one battles. There is plenty of action and adventure to enjoy in these two anime.
