For 1800 years the seven schools of Kantou have fought over supremacy of the land. Their students constantly fight each other in battles to prove their strength. Sonsaku Hakufu is a 17 year old girl that just transferred to Nanyou Academy, and at her arrival, finds herself fighting one of its top 4 fighters. But Sonsaku possesses a soulstone which contains the spirit of a great fighter, and she is not an easy match. When an order is issued to defeat Sonsaku, she finds herself in all out war against all of the schools top fighters. What lies behind this dark conspiracy?
Two shows that feature constant battling (martial arts in Ikkitousen, and skating in Air Gear), that is very fast paced and only stops to take a breath during the panty shots.
As much ecchi as you can take, strong female characters and a strong storyline that will have you coming back for more means that these two shows will appeal to the same (albeit a little perverted) crowd.
Long ago the infamous Gol D. Roger was the strongest and most powerful pirate on the seas. As he was about to be executed he revealed that he hid all of his wealth, including the legendary treasure known as One Piece, on an island at the end of the Grand Line - a treacherous and truly unpredictable sea. Monkey D. Luffy is a spirited, energetic and somewhat dim-witted young man with a very big dream: to find One Piece and become the Pirate King! However Luffy is no ordinary boy, as when he was younger he ate one of the Devil's Fruits and gained its power to become a Rubber Man. Now in this grand age of pirates Luffy sets out to gather a crew and sail to the most dangerous sea in the world so that he can fulfill his dream... and maybe even his appetite!
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 ;)
Sena was always a weak child, constantly having to run away from bullies; so much, that he became good at it. Now, as a teenager, Sena’s skill at running has become so impressive that the diabolical mastermind of the school football team notices his talent and recruits him. Yet to keep his privacy intact and his dangerous hobby a secret from his overprotective childhood friend Mamori, Sena is forced to develop a secret identity: the ace running back, Eyeshield 21! But the world is full of talented rivals, and Sena has a long way to go until he can reach the top...
Okay look I made this recommendation becuase of that feeling.
Basically Sena from Eyeshield starts football and from thier he becomes one of the best runnerbacks, and visually the runs are like "Air"
And so there you have it
it really is a great anime man
oh and there are some simular characters or interestin to say the least
Mikoto Shinozaki is a normal high student with unfortunate normal problems: he's terrible at sports, has no special talents and is bullied by everyone at his school. That is, until one day Yuki, his beautiful, long-time crush, asks the boy if he'll join her brother's cycling team. Desperate to gain her affection, Mikoto tries his best to learn how to ride a bike to not look foolish in the process, soon discovering that he actually enjoys the sport! Now, Mikoto will try his hardest to become the best cyclist in the world, encountering hardships, trials and successes along the way.
If you liked Air Gear for Ikki's guts, never give up attitude and amazing skill improvement speed then you might also like this very epic Over Drive. Over Drive is a sports anime but it is a very serious and has miraculous improvement speed like in Hajime no Ippo and Air Gear.'
Eventhough if you did not like sports anime or cycling, I still have to say you this: This is totally epic, humorous and keeps you on your toes. Makes you feel if sports was this exciting why I haven't been watching it more.
