Air Gear and Initial D have a lot of similarities and look alike. Their stories somehow are very similar yet have a different approach. The characters are also very similar in certain ways.

The main theme in these anime is sport: umisho has swimming and air gear has rollerscating. These anime also both have some ecchi scenes like panty flashes. Comedy and friends are also some important themes these anime share.

FLCL

FLCL

Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...

Well, both anime are how to say this ... "jakass"? yes that's a good word. In terms of plot they aren't similiar almost at all, the thing that connects them is extramely good action, quite a bit of Ecchi and upredictability of main characters. Even now I have problems with understanding why the main character of AG got naked on the construction site. And some actions taken in FLCL will be a mystery for many years to come. To sum up, both anime are a good watch especially unpredictability of the main characters helps them to stand out from other anime.

Black Lagoon

Rokuro Okajima is a small-time salaryman who is carrying documents for his company, when the ship he's traveling on is attacked by pirates.

Now, with his former life ruined and his kidnappers seeming comparatively friendly, "Rock" decides to join their merry band of mercenaries, and sets out with a new career to the shadier corners of the South China Sea.

Action scenes, though not dealing with similar content are liberally applied to both series'. Although Black Lagoon is not as flattering to the female figure as Air Gear is, there is a reasonable degree of eye candy in both. Not to mention the romantic element that both series share.

Tower of Druaga: the Aegis of Uruk

Tower of Druaga: the Aegis of Uruk

In the kingdom of Urak, the tower of Druaga is a source of fear and death; it is the cause of disease and monster attacks, and climbing it is impossible given the ferocity of the monsters within – until now. It is the Summer of Anu, a period that occurs once every five years during which the monsters are weakened. Jil, a guardian, is one adventurer whose goal is to reach the top level and slay the tower’s creator, the demon Druaga, and finally bring peace to Uruk with the help of a powerful artifact found within. However, Jil and his friends aren’t the only ones who aim for the top; it’s a race to the finish!

To prove yourself have always been a tought business. But even after that, there are still people who won't look at you the way you desire. Bot Air Gear and Tower of Druaga: the Aegis of Uruk follow the same theme. Ikki from Air Gear and Jil from Tower of Druaga are able to prove themselves in the long run for, not to say, a little cheap price. The difference between the two, however, is that Ikki succeeds in making his dream come true without losing anything, while Jil is left behind by the person he believed in the most. After all both anime have an open end and maybe will continue soon enough with a second season!
