In the future, basketball is played by giant robots called Bigfoots and the wealthy elite live on the moon. Dan JD is a cocky young boy who lives on the planet Earthdash and makes a meager living working as a delivery service. He dreams of someday bringing his disabled sister to the moon to give her the medical treatment she needs. Dan also despises the boring playing style used by official Bigfoot Basketball, so the first chance he gets he crashes a game to show the world how it's really done - destroying the arena and being thrown in jail in the process! However, by the time he's released, Dan's story is legendary, spawning countless imitators who smash up the city in their Bigfoot duels. All Dan's got to do is fend off his rivals, try desperately to keep his business afloat, and aim for the moon!
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.
-both are animes abot a made up sport
-both have eicchi
-both have the same feeling
-use machines in the sport
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.
Japan has reclaimed its former glory under the guidance of Kings, charismatic individuals wielding incredible powers. But now, one of the Red King's vassals has been murdered, and a viral video shows the killer's confession at the scene. He is one Yashiro Isana, claiming to be the Colorless King; and he is now a wanted man - not only to the Red King's faction, but also the Blues charged with keeping the peace. 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.

But with the sinister Hisoka standing in their way, will Gon and his friends be able to succeed in obtaining their reward, or even escaping with their lives?
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.
