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.

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.

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.
