Synopsis:

Mitsui Ayane is a spunky girl who dreams of becoming a wrestling champion. Unfortunately, her All-Japan wrestling auditions flop, leaving her on the fast track to nowhere! Luckily, the owner of Tangay Gym gives her an offer she can't refuse: train with him and become the best. What Ayane doesn't know, however, is his dubious plans to train her to fight in the arena of kickboxing instead! With newfound pressure and the possibility of being expelled, can Ayane rise to the test and prove her strength, or simply become a failure?

I'm not sure why it is that I think you'd like ARK if you like AHK or vice versa... maybe it was the impossible challenge for a woman that ends up being comedic plot? Or perhaps the sidekicks who win the crowd? I think they each have a somewhat similar tone, though the plots are definitely different as far as fighting vs creating animation. But, give it a try!

Arcade Gamer Fubuki

Arcade Gamer Fubuki and Ayane's High Kick might sound like a weird combination, but I definitely got the same campy comedic feel from each one. Combine that with a young girl with a dream to be the best, and you've got yourself a good recommendation pair! Keep in mind, though, that AGF is far more ecchi than Ayane's High Kick. Regardless, I'm pretty sure you'd like one if you liked the other.

Though not the same type of sports anime, Hajime no Ippo and Ayane's High Kick are somewhat similar. Both main characters are people pursue their sports when given the opportunity to advance. In both animes, you see Ayane and Ippo get built from scratch into tomorrow's champions. Some of the locations are similar, too; for instance, both Ippo and Ayane fight in Kourakuen Hall, a real life venue where actual boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, and mixed martial arts bouts are held.

If you enjoy tales of young people who become motivated to succeed, especially in the sports industry, these two are for you. Conveniently, they both deal with boxing, but that's not the only reason I recommended this. The feel and tone is quite similar, especially how both of these two shoot up from nothing to stardom with incredible will power and strength.
