Shirahama "weak legs" Kenichi is a typical high school student with typical problems: he's frequently bullied and tends to run away in the face of his enemies. Things change when Kenichi meets Furinji Miu, whose grandfather runs a dojo; and not knowing what he's getting himself into, he signs up to become a disciple. As Kenichi's life-threatening training continues and he becomes more and more powerful, he inadvertently becomes the target of the deadly gang called Ragnarok. With mental and physical challenges ahead, can Kenichi survive his encounters with Ragnarok, or will the masters of his dojo get to him first?
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...
In both Kenichi and Eyeshield 21, there is one evil alien or devil-looking character. They both cause the main character grief, using him to get what they want. The main characters are also similar to each other; they both are nice and good hearted people. They bond with other new characters, creating a team. The anime both have male friendship, team work and a goal they wish to achieve.
These are both great anime with a protagonist who begins the series as a complete wimp, but through various means (football in Eyeshield and martial arts in HSD), he finds a way to improve himself. I also see a strong resemblance in the behavior of some of the characters in each anime. If you liked one I strongly suggest that you give the other a try.
In both series of History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi and Eyeshield we have the protagonistwho both share common identies, both have same recations to some situations and are kind, good hearted and WEAK.
Over the course of the both series at the hands of both what appears to be shady and dark character(s) (Hiruma in Eyeshield and Master(s) in Kenichi) experience hardships from training. But both endure their training and find their strengths.The animation is good, with background adapations to explain the characters and statements. Both are of different genre (sports and martial arts), both have character develpment and see the growth of both.
Kenichi and Eyeshield are both excelent anime about overcoming weakness and believing in yourself. You'll laugh your butt off and cheer for the hereos, knowing all the while that "losers" can be winners!
In both Kenichi and Eyeshield 21 it start off with one guy thats a wimp and wants learn/change there self and they both have a demon looking guy in it. and both of the main characters get stronger and better with time I also saw a strong resemblance in the behavior of some of the characters in each anime
In the world of underground fighting, there is no time limit, no referee, and no ban of technique, not even murderous ones. This is the underground world that Baki, the young champion fighter must fight in to show the world how strong he can be. Only by challenging and accepting the strongest opponents from the world can he hope that one day he can overcome his greatest opponent of all, his father.
While the characters of Kenichi and Baki are not at all similar, the quest that they are on is the same: to get stronger. In order to do this, they face suicidal challenges to gain abilities that far outstrip normal fighters. Like Kenichi, most of the fighters he defeats, he befriends based on mutual respect of ability.
The main characters of both Kenichi and Grappler Baki are muscle heads that fight non stop. They both have a great story line, amazing out of this world fight scenes, and a main character you can identify with.
Martial arts, sport, friendship and getting stronger. Both anime are exciting to watch, especially their fights are amazing to watch. In both shows we follow the life of young boys trying to be the strongest. I think that both anime are a relly good watch for fans of martial arts and/or underground fighting. I’m sure that you will enjoy them as much as I did.
Kenichi is very similar to Grappler Baki in that it revolves around a young man's quest to become a strong fighter. They make an interesting contrast since in Kenichi the focus is on becoming a better fighter in order to become a better person and be able to help his friends while in Baki the focus is on becoming a better fighter as a goal in and of itself (if my father only respects strength then I will become stronger than anyone else).
They're both similar because they both are fighting to become the strongest, although for different reasons, but the same path.
Koushi Inuzuka wants to be a prosecutor. He has excellent grades, good morals and is very popular. However, his father is a talented martial artist who wants Koushi to follow in his footsteps, and he is hiding an important secret! When Koushi was younger, he was betrothed to the daughter of his father’s rival: Momoko, the strongest bride in the world! She’s cute, devoted, and a talented martial artist; and with Koushi’s father’s blessing, she is now the newest member of the Inuzuka household – much to Koushi’s dismay! Now, all Koushi wants to do is live a normal life and become a great prosecutor… but with two martial artists to deal with, can he keep his path – and sanity – intact?
In these anime, two boys with basically no martial arts experience find themselves and their lives changed through martial arts. While Kenichi from History's Strongest Disciple embraces it and Koushi from Sumomomo Momomo runs from it, both have great comedy from the random characters they encounter through martial arts.
Both anime have an initially weak shounen as the main character, who is introduced in the world of martial arts by the much stronger female character. Both have a lots of comedy, with a clean and positive sense of humor.
This being said, Sumomo is more obviously a comedy, while Kenichi is a shounen with more action, so this should be taken into consideration.
fanservicy action shonens that are vaugly funny are these.
And really these are the olny action shonens that I watched for no reason and didn't really like because these are too action fanservicy.
plus they have similar titls, if it means anything.
both series are funny and both series feature a "normal" male lead surrounded by a bunch of crazy martial artists who are insanely good at fighting.
Yoichi Karasuma is a strong young samurai who was born and raised in the mountains. One day his father decides to send him to the city to stay with the four Ikuraga sisters so that he can gain valuable life experience, but his first trip into civilization doesn’t go quite as planned. Not only is he late to meet his new hostesses, but he is labelled a pervert and manages to get himself arrested – twice! Now, as he lives at the Ikuraga Dojo with Ibuki, Ayame, Kagome and Chihaya, Yoichi must adapt to his new life at school while accepting the rather violent ‘training’ he receives from Ibuki. After making an enemy of the school delinquent and with a mysterious man after his life, it seems that Yoichi’s quest to gain life experience won’t be so smooth after all!
The big common point that these two shows have in common is that the main character, after showing off his skills, is challenged by ever stronger opponents. Yoichi and Kenichi both have a deep seeded need to improve their skills and protect what they value. The comedic aspect of the two shows is very similar, but with Yoichi being more of a harem.
It's hard to find a concreate way to tie these two together.
Kenichi is a coming of age story about a boy with minimal ability succeding despite himself.
Yoichi is light Harem style comedy about a naive warrior and how he affects the lives of those around him.
They have different genras, different Character types, different "Feel".
Mostly it's two things that make me feel that they are a good match for each other. the first is the sense of humor. They share a lot of simmilar style jokes and gags.
The other is a bit more subtle. If you're reading this, you probably have a good bit of anime under your belt already, so you likely know the term "moe". Another good word in Japanese is "Ami" (pronounced aa-my) can mean sweet or naive, and usually means both. And it applies to the heros Kenichi and Yoichi. It's one of those words that's ment as an insult when an opponent says it, but can be taken as a compliment. and I feel it is the defining aspect of those two.
if you like Kenichi or Asu no Yoichi you would like the other because, both have a main character that improve there skills to protect someone close to them. Thy also share a common story line were pride is important. Both have very similar comedy in them
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?
Action, ecchi, and comedy; these are the three main genres for these series. Both have comedy in about every part of the series, in addition to great action scenes and moves. Plus, if you want boobs and curvy bodies then both of them have it. Basically, if you want a cool action/ecchi/comedy then both Kenichi and Ikkitousen would satisfy your tastes.
Fun, ecchi, fighting, fear, anxiousness... What more can you ask of an anime? Well, i believe that you might want more... So if you like Ikkitousen or Kenichi, make sure you watch the other one too, because i promise there is more of it there!
Both animes are about a super strong girl with big boobs. There's a boy trying to protect the girl in both animes. The storylines are very alike aswell because they are about fighting different gangs and fighters.
There's some ecchi in both.. I would say it's a bit over the top in Ikkitousen. If you enjoyed Kenichi I would advice you to watch Ikkitousen aswell, and vica-versa.
