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?

Fullmetal Alchemist

Fullmetal Alchemist

Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...

Well, well, well...... Fullmetal Alchemist is a show about two brothers whose love and care for each other is simply amazing. The anime is about fighting but not the ordinary way like in Kenichi. The heroes use alchemy to fight , that is they trasfigure surrounding objects into weapons or use them to their advantage. However the alchemy has it's laws and you can transfigure a certain object under a specific conditions. It's one of my favourite animes the action is great, the storyline is really good. My mark? 5/5!

Get Backers

Get Backers

Ban Midou and Ginji Amano are the Get Backers. With a 99 percent success rate in returning lost or stolen property to its original owners, they will do anything for the right price. Midou and Ginji often get hired for seemingly ordinary jobs that turn out to be more difficult than they appear; and whether it’s finding a doll for a girl, retrieving a stolen rare violin or getting mixed up with the mob, they have many adventures with plenty of petty squabbles along the way!

The obvious reason to liking both of these shows is that they're heavy on the really cool fight scenes. Of course, the recomendation goes beyond just that. Get Backers and Kenichi both have a deep seeded ideal of friendship and betrayal. In Kenichi, he's ultimately fighting against a friend whom he long since forgot and Ginji in Get Backers is fighting against all of his former friends from the Infinite Castle. Both Kenichi and Ginji are accompanied in their journies by an array of new friends who care deeply for the respective characters. I guarantee that you will like them both.

Having recently dropped out of law school, where he had finished the graduation requirements but didn't actually graduate, Kintaro Oe is on a new self-driven quest for knowledge. His adventures will lead him to a variety of workplaces including a computer firm, noodle shop, and even an animation studio, where his seemingly perverse attitude always tends to get him into trouble with the opposite sex. The moral of the story? Study! Study! Study!

I think Kintaro and Kenichi have a lot in common as far as likeability; they're hard working, and are there to learn and take to heart what life has to offer.  If you liked one because of the good feeling you got at the end of the show, you'll like the other.

Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun

Shungo is an extraordinary high school student; in addition to his studies, he’s been trained by his mercenary sister to be a top mercenary. Their newest task involves the Tsukimura siblings; both of them have the powers of a succubus, but Mayu has a slight problem: she suffers from androphobia – a fear of men! Shungo’s new objective is to help Mayu overcome this phobia and protect her from the men her succubus powers naturally draw to her; but this becomes more difficult once he becomes the guinea pig for social experiments involving Mayu, such as sharing the same bed and even bathing together! To make matters worse, the ever-growing popularity of Mayu at school and the student council president’s infatuation with Shungo only add to his workload!

Both of these series are about badass fighting with more love quarrels than you can count, although keinchi takes a bit longer to develope both animes are very comferting and eqally rewarding.

Well, both anime are rather the instructive type. Although they are about fighting the blood plays only backstage role. Both main characters are weak, shy and always scared. But they have a hidden determination that differs them from other people. I really enoyed watching them as they are both action/comedy animes. They are light series but to some extent, the level of violance is rather high well THEY ARE fighting anime after all. But there's nothing even close to what there is in Tenhjo Tenge.
