Naruto

Naruto

Naruto Uzumaki is a young ninja who bears a great power hidden inside him, a power that has isolated him from the rest of his village. As such, his only dream is to become the Hokage - the most powerful ninja, and leader of the village; but first he needs to graduate! With his inability to perform even the most basic ninja techniques, it seems that all Naruto has going for him is his determination to succeed no matter what. Teamed up with the genius Sasuke, book-smart Sakura, and their team leader Kakashi, Naruto embarks on his quest to become the Hokage. But with outside forces posing a threat to the entire Hidden Leaf village, Naruto discovers that he must become much stronger if he ever wants to realize his dream and protect the friendships he's forged.

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.

Both shows features a young, wild boy who gets into a very unusual sport. In Air Gear it's Air Treks while in Basquash it's Big Foot Basketball. As it later turns out those sports have a bit more to them than just a fair competition for the sake of recreation (though in Air Gear there are only hints of that, and more is explained in the manga).  In both cases "rookie" carves a name for himself with his skill, stubborness, refusal to follow the rules and unusual ideas. Also in both shows he gathers companions in order to form a team and battle with other players.

 I'd also like to add, that both animes have faboulous soundtrack, brimming with energy.

Ride Back

Ride Back

Amidst the turbulent revolution of 2025 wrought by the GGP government, Rin Ogata only dreams of becoming a ballerina; like her mother before her, Rin’s grace and agility mean she’s destined for success on the stage. However, an injury and the untimely death of her parents quickly shatter her aspirations and, for once, Rin’s existence seems purposeless. That is, until she enters the garage of a club one day and sits astride a RideBack! The RideBack, a motorcycle with arms and the ability to stand upright, offers Rin a new world of boundless movement! What she doesn’t realize, however, is that this club of RideBack enthusiasts is about to get dragged into the bloody war between the GGP and the terrorists intent on overthrowing them. Life may be more exciting now, but it’s also become very dangerous: will Rin’s natural talents as a pilot be enough in a world where racing is not just for glory, but for survival?

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..

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. 

AOKANA: Four Rhythm Across the Blue

AOKANA: Four Rhythm Across the Blue

In a world where flying is as simple as riding a bicycle, there is a popular sport called "Flying Circus" (dogfight race). The protagonist who once hoped for a future in this sport suffered a setback due to an overwhelming defeat, and withdrew from the sport for this and some other reason. However, he met the transfer student Asuka Kurashina, and in teaching her to fly the skies, the old passion returned. He takes part in the Flying Circus again.

Both of these anime revolve around really awesome footwear, whether you're battling with your inline skates or flying with your sneakers. Both of the anime feature a newbie to the technology witnessing some high-flying antics and immediately wanting to learn the sport involving these fancy shoes. Why not try both of these because, after all, shoes come in pairs?

Okay, when I watched Aokana, I've been crazy about finding another anime that's almost the same as it. Air gear was the one. If you like sci-fi and mind-blowing mid-air movements, then you better watch these two! In Aokana, the characters literally fly in the air to do races. Though in Air Gear, the characters wear these roller blades and do some crazy tricks when they jump and when they're in mid-air. In anyways, I think these anime are worth watching! ^_^

Both main characters in Air Gear and Gatekeepers start out as nothing special (I know this happens a lot) but the animation itself is also similar in my opinion.
