When a bunch of teens find out they have special powers they swear to protect the weak. To do so they enter into a tournament where all of their fighting skills are tested. If you liked FoR or YYH, check out the other
Yu Yu Hakusho has direct similarities to Flame of Recca with the fights, the tournaments, and everything; plus it's a great anime... check it out.
Both Flame of Recca and Yu Yu Hakusho have very similar plot elements and themes. In both shows, there is a grand tournament with lots of fighting and relationships that build because of the fights.
Yu Yu Hakusho and Flame of Recca have outstanding character development and a sense of action-packed and magical justice.
YYH and FoR are very alike. They both involve characters who must enter a tournament to defeat their enemies. The main characters are also alike; they both are the trouble makers of their schools. If you liked YYH you'll most likely like FoR (and vice versa).
Yu Yu Hakusho and Flame of Recca are very similar. Several characters from each anime have the same personalities. If you thought one was awesome, you'll enjoy the other.
Both series have many similarities. They both have similar characters with similar traits. They both have a major villain. The main characters in both are really strong. They both include fighting. They both have a huge tournament in them, where anybody can die. Basically if you liked one you will like they other.
Both series have kickass battles and fights. The main characters totally kicks ass and with their friends they kick even bigger ass. They go through challenges together, the question is: Will they survive?
both animes are very similar in terms of characters and plots. both have what you could say a 'tournament saga' wherein the main character, coupled by his friends, join in a tournament in hopes of winning. although yu yu hakusho continued long after that, there were still many aspects of the show which is similar to flame of recca.
if you liked the action one of the shows portrayed, you'll definately like the other.
Flame of Recca is clearly inspired by Yu Yu Hakusho as the characters are practically the same. Yu Yu is certainly the better of the animes however, Flame can be enjoyed just as much if you liked the other.
The stories are very similar, the romance aspects are practically the same, the characters have much in common, etc etc...its as straight-forward a recommendation as it gets really
The entire anime of Flame of Recca pretty much directly parallels the first half of Yu Yu Hakusho.
In both series, the main characters start out as adversaries and later become teammates after their initial conflict. Both series then proceed to have an arc where the characters work together to fight a common enemy for the first time. Then, both series have a tournament arc immediately following where the characters are forced to fight as a team in an evil tournament against other teams of strong fighters
The two series are extremely similar; if you like one you are almost certain to like the other.
yea these anime are exactly the same EXCEPT Yu Yu Hakusho is just a WAYYY BETTER version of Flame of Recca. I mean its longer and it has more in depth with the characters and all the characters have way more moves. Flame of Recca is pretty much a pre-school version of Yu Yu hakusho. They are both worth watching tho. If you enjoyed one you will enjoy the other. Exact same plot though you will notice the similarities right from episode 1!
both mirror each other super closely. the main characters both have similar powers, and the side characters are similar.
While very unique in their own way, both shows have extremely similar styles and subject matter.
Flame of Recca is basically a faster paced Yu Yu Hakusho which focuses even more on the tournament aspect.
These shows are basically the same for the first few arcs. The drawing, characters, plot and the way the episodes are layed out are almost identical. If you liked one you will probably like the other.
However i found that they were almost too similar so I dropped Flame of Recca pretty fast (Ihad already watched Yu Yu Hakushu)
Naruto Uzumaki is a young ninja who bears a great power hidden inside him, a power that has isolated him from the rest of his village. As such, his only dream is to become the Hokage - the most powerful ninja, and leader of the village; but first he needs to graduate! With his inability to perform even the most basic ninja techniques, it seems that all Naruto has going for him is his determination to succeed no matter what. Teamed up with the genius Sasuke, book-smart Sakura, and their team leader Kakashi, Naruto embarks on his quest to become the Hokage. But with outside forces posing a threat to the entire Hidden Leaf village, Naruto discovers that he must become much stronger if he ever wants to realize his dream and protect the friendships he's forged.
Both series involve the main character wanting to become a great ninja. Where their greatest similarities lie, however, is in the fighting tournament they join with their friends. If you enjoyed the chunin exam story arc in Naruto, or the underground tournament story in Flame of Recca, you should check out the other.
they are both story about shinobi but in different times.If you like stories about ninjas both of these are good to watch.
Both Naruto and Flame of Recca are all about ninjas.
Both series' main characters are ninjas, and both main characters start out with little actual ninja ability; however, both main characters rapidly grow in their ninja powers and abilities throughout the series.
Both series also feature many ninja weapons and focus on ninja combat.
If you like either of these series because of the ninja aspect then you would likely be interested in the other.
The time has come for the next Shaman King to be crowned in the great Shaman Fight. Yoh Asakura is one such hopeful, a kind-hearted boy with a hidden power... and a terrible secret. Now, the fate of all mankinds rests in the hands of Yoh and his companions as they must battle the most powerful shaman who ever lived!
Shaman King is a bit more laid back while Flame of Recca doesn't waste any time and gets straight to the serious fighting. Yet the fighting style is very similar, so you should like this one as well.
The theme of both anime revolves around tournaments and fighting. The other uses spirits, the other uses secret ninja weapons. I think you'll love them both.
Beneath Tokyo lies a city whose inhabitants have inherited a natural ability to control the elements. After a civil uprising, two girls surface from the sub-terra in a bid to escape from this secret world. Together, Chelsea and Ruri stumble upon Asagi Rumina, a man who becomes determined to protect them from those who would pursue the maiden of life. After a close encounter with death, Rumina learns that he must develop a skill of his own to keep his newfound friends safe, especially as it seems to be his responsibility to stop the impending doom rising to take over the planet’s surface. Will his power of wind be enough to take on The Company, or will he be forced to kneel before those brandishing electricity, ice and shadow?
If you liked Flame of Recca you'll like Tokyo Underground. It also tells the story of a guy who gets an unusual power: the power of the wind. And like Recca, the guy called Rumina has to encounter many dangers to rescue his friends and destroy the evil force that is trying to destroy Earth. TU is a wonderful series filled with magic.
A self-trained guy who's not too bright at school but makes up for it by being clever in battles obtains an elemental power, meets a girl with healing powers and pretty much falls for her on first sight. The girl gets abducted by evil people into their shady empire where regular law doesn't apply with the intent to abuse her powers and then sacrifice her for their own gain. It's up to the guy and his fellowship to save her.
Fits them both spot-on. Recca's power is fire while Rumina uses wind and their party line-up varies somewhat, but both series are mostly very similar with probably the biggest common theme being that both heroes have barely met the heroines before pledging their loyalty to them and going against tremendous odds to bring them back. There's the occasional comedy bits, too. About the only major difference is that Flame of Recca doesn't hold back with fanservice, whereas you'd be hard pressed to find a panty shot in Tokyo Underground. Aside from that if you liked one, you'll probably like the other, too.
Some years into the future, a strange, unexplainable natural disaster has broken off a piece of the Japanese mainland. Known as the Lost Ground, it is now inhabited by people with Alters -- machine-like extensions of their own will. In order to keep the peace on the Lost Ground, the HOLY organization uses its own Alter capabilists to police the region. In the midst of the chaos is a young man named Kazuma, whose life will soon change forever as he discovers his hidden abilities, and how to wield them.
In Scryed, just like in Flame of Recca, there are a lot of different abilities. The training and the fights are very similar and offer the same atmosphere of a weak guy growing strong enough to move forward. Scryed even adds a better plot into the mix!
