Iketeru Futari

Iketeru Futari
  • TV (16 eps x 5 min)
  • 1999

Meet Saji Keisuke, a hormone-heavy teen who's fallen hopelessly in love with Koizumi, a supposed man hater who refuses to give him the time of day. All he wants is to get laid, but all Koizumi wants is to get as far from him as possible! With plenty of love for Koizumi (in his pants?!) and plenty of distractions to keep at bay (such as big breasted Yuki), can our hero manage to get past second base with the girl of his dreams, or is she destined to stay just in his dreams forever?

Iketeru Futari and Goldenboy seem to live around the same level. Goldenboy is a bit more high-calibur, but none-the-less you have a guy flaunting over women and school girls. Both are very hillarious and worth a good watch.

Both shows involve a genius character that gets pretty girls to fall in love with them, but before the relationship can continue, the character goes ''on to the next one''.

Now, this might seem like a strange or bad recommendation, but bear with me. Though Kino no Tabi and Golden Boy have very, very different tones to them, both are about a character on the move, exploring facets of society. Normally I'd never recommend something based solely on plot points, even if the moods are different, but for some reason I still think you'd appreciate both of these if you liked one. Golden Boy is ecchi, but if you look past that, it has the same exploratory and examining tone as Kino no Tabi, though KnT definitely is a lot more dark about what it finds in society.

To his delight, he accepts it, completely unaware of its past and its secrets. Shortly after, strange events begin to unfold, causing both humorous and ecchi situations for Galan to survive through, all the while protecting his mysterious sword full of secrets.

No two anime could be so alike as "Labyrinth of Flames" and "Golden Boy". They are both full of ecchiness, funny stupidity and fantastic nonsense; only I guess Galan is luckier with women than Kintaro. Anyways, I'm absolutely sure if you liked one you'll like the other one. :)

Mouse

Mouse
  • TV (12 eps x 14 min)

Can Mouse uphold the legend and continue his thieving ways, or will his amazing feats go down in history simply as a piece of art?

Though Golden Boy is more comedy-based while Mouse is more action-based, both are aimed heavily on the ecchi audience. Golden Boy isn't as bad as Mouse, but the ecchi is often very similar.
