Moreover, the rules of Go have changed since Sai's time, and Go players from all over the world are now much stronger, having had the benefit of hundreds of years of evolution and experimentation by the masters before them. Can this unlikely pair form a successful partnership and rise to the top of Japan's Go community, and can Sai finally play the Hand of God and find some peace?

Sport anime about friendship, loyalty and that hard work overcomes talent. There's not much violance in both anime however they are about contact sports so sometimes there is some miss-happening but nothing involving much brutality. If you liked one you should enjoy the other.
Meet the Minami sisters, three girls living on their own and doing their best to make it through life's little snags and adventures. Kana, the middle sister, has far more energy than common sense; Chiaki, the youngest, is more reserved, but her sharp tongue and devious mind often cause trouble for others; and Haruka, the eldest, acts like a mother to the other two, is beautiful and kind, but has a fearsome stern streak. Together, no obstacle can stand in their way, be it school, romance, or even cooking.
Despite being remarkably different in both premise and setting, both Minami-ke and Bamboo Blade emphasize humor focused on a slightly developed, amiable cast of characters. Bamboo Blade tends to follow a more set and distinct storyline, though, while Minami-ke is entirely episodic. Both series certainly have their charms and merits, and given their similar approaches it's not much of a stretch to see how these two apparantly different comedies fit together surprisingly well.
Yamato Akitsuki has recently moved to Tokyo, and in order to maintain his less than wealthy lifestyle, he currently works at his aunt's bathhouse. While walking by the school one evening he sees a girl by the name of Suzuka practicing the high jump, and is instantly in love. Even better is the realization that Suzuka lives next door! Determined to prove himself worthy of her affections, Yamato decides to join the school's track team and show her what he’s got, but things won’t be so easy; for Suzuka has a love interest of her own, and it isn’t Yamato...
If you like light hearted high school series with a strong female protagonist a that faces adversity, then these are two good series. Suzuka has more drama, and Bamboo Blade has more humor; but both have just the right amount of character developement and conflict to keep you wanting.
