Basquash!

Basquash!

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.

Beyblade

Beyblade

Beyblading is the latest rage; gyroscopes battle each other in different environments until one is knocked out. Only a true master can bring out a blade’s full potential and unleash the bitbeast within, though. To find out who the true blade master is, a tournament is held. While going up against a team of bio-enhanced beybladers, can the talented but hard-headed Tyson and his team, the Bladebreakers, master their bitbeasts and bring home the win?

Airgear and Beyblade has similar plot. These series told us about a kind of popular, international (and supernatural) sport practising mainly by subcultures. There is an energetic hero who gather his team and they fought firstly against weak enemies (and always they have problems with them) and after against stronger and stronger guys to became champion (all enemies after beating became their friends). Both series are classic Shounen because of "from zero to hero" plot and rivalry aspect.

P.S. Sorry, about my English ;)

Black Lagoon

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. Kidnapped, he discovers to his dismay that his employers' main concern is to ensure the documents don't get into the wrong hands, even if it means sending the carrier to the bottom of the sea. 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.

Both of these shows feature a punk kid trying to make it in an unforgiving world. Both characters also seem to have a big place in their hearts and hands for the laides. If you enjoyed the antics and attitude of one character, you will enjoy watching the other try to survive.
