Synopsis:

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?

During the exam Gon befriends vengeful Kurapika, doctor-to-be Leorio, and skilled assassin Killua, who have entered for their own reasons.

Both Kenichi and HxH are about boys that are trying to follow their path in life. They often find themselves in fights, but continue to train and improve. Unlike their opponents they have strong moral values that affect and befriend those around them. Frequently they persevere through sheer determination.

Gopherfanman

While there are some serious differences between these shows, they share the same balance of comedy, great action and character development. They also both have story arcs with clear endings so that there isn't an abrupt interruption when the anime is over. They leave you wanting more.

Kenichi, Gon, and Killua all work towards a goal that they must fight and train for. Gon and Kenichi manage to make friends with almost everyone even those they fight with.

OverDrive is the same as Kenichi in the sense of character development. Both main characters are losers with no hope in life until they find that one thing the makes them special.

OverDrive is a very funny series and the bike racing sequences are pretty good; the story picks up later on too.

Aganoth

Kenichi and Overdrive are strongly related by the main characters. Both are men who live by the credo, 'Do Your Best,' and amaze others by just how far they will push themselves. Both also share a common plot between the male main character and the female love-interest, which is revealed in the most sincere ways.

Hikaru

In both series of History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi and Over Drive we have the protagonistwho both bullied by classmates, forced to run errands, good hearted and WEAK. At the start the course of the both series at the hands of both what appears to be shady and/or dark characters (Master(s) in Kenichi and Yousuki in OverDrive) experience hardships from training.But both endure their training and find their strengths. The protagonist(s) have what appears to be an undefined will and/or strength that is not explained, however use that to endure.Anime i both are 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.

Both of these series share a love of fighting and use it as the central part of their respective stories. This fighting is given new meanings by its constant changing and the growing of the main characters as they learn to fight better and defeat stronger and stronger enemies.

FireFlower

Sweat, sweat, sweat more! Hard work is the way for any martial artist. But what happens when you're gifted and have strong will to continue any harsh training you receive from your master? Both of these animes have characters like that with strong will to continue fight and getting stronger and stronger everyday.

Hopefully you will enjoy these shows because they're both good and you won't get so bored easily.

If you liked Kenichi or Dragon Ball Z you'd like the other because both have main characters that are constantly working towards getting stronger to protect the ones they love/defeat a stronger enemy. Both animes have a strong sense of justice. If you like one you will surely like the other.
