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?

There's an adage that one man's trash is another man's treasure; but for Kosuke Ueki, one man's trash is another man's... tree?! Junior high school teacher Mr. K is in the running for the title of Celestial King. Candidates must select a junior high school student to endow powers upon, and then the students might fight each other mercilessly. The victorious student's benefactor will become the new Celestial King! Kosuke was Mr. K's choice, and for his power, he chose the ability to turn trash into trees. Furthermore, if he uses his abilities to harm others, he will lose one of his natural talents. Now, Kosuke must battle a variety of other power users to help Mr. K win it all, all while keeping his talents intact!

The reason I personally enjoyed both of these animes is the development of the main characters' skills throughout the course of the anime. I don't want to spoil either of them, but seeing both main characters getting schooled by a strong opponent before becoming stronger through training and beating them is a dominant theme. Highly recommended :)

Legend of the Condor Hero

Legend of the Condor Hero

Youka, a thick-headed boy, has been forced into Zenshinkyou Temple to learn martial arts. During his short stay at the temple, he quickly decides that their style is not for him, and takes up an ancient martial arts style, Gyokujo Shinkei, under the beautiful female master Shouryuujo. Because of his oath to her, he has made an enemy of Ribakushuu, the evil sister of Shouryuujo, as well as the Zenshinkyou. After many years of training, a disaster of events occurs, and now a grown-up Youka must find Shouryuujo and a way to defeat Ribakushuu.

Estuko

These series are very differet in that one is a classic tale and one is a relatively new story. The thing that makes me write this recommendation however is the topic in the two series. If you like to see an underdog making it and going on to bigger better things and overcoming what he/she was afraid of you should really have seen both of these series.

Natsuki Crisis

Natsuki Crisis

Natsuki loves martial arts and is a young student of her high school's karate club. A new transfer student has just arrived at her school: the aloof and expressionless Rina. Nevertheless, Natsuki is interested in befriending the girl and forces her way into walking home with Rina. Yet on the way, trouble strikes in the form of masked attackers! With Rina's wrestling expertise and Natsuki's karate moves, they are able to fend off the pursuers easily; however, the bigger concern is why are Natsuki and Rina being targeted?

Himitsu

Both titles are widely based on martial arts, so if you enjoyed the direct hand-to-hand combat in Kenichi, you'll definitely like the action in Natsuki Crisis. Another connection is that there is ample amount of fanservice; well, not so much in Natsuki Crisis - just a couple of panty shots. The relationship between the characters is very cute in Natsuki Crisis, and I definitely enjoyed the fighting battles.

Real Bout High School

Real Bout High School

In the school of Daimon High, martial arts and starting fights are the biggest ways to boosting your grades, which is excellent news for Ryoko Mitsurugi, the school most popular kendo beauty. Her popularity and fame spark an idea for the heads of the schools, K-Fight! -- a system where the best fighters for each school challenge each other to one-one or all out battle royal. However, soon the K-Fights start to draw unwanted interest, some not even of this world.

Both of these animes are really good especally History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi which is definitely in my top 10. They both deal with fighting and getting stronger. Both deal with busty women except the main character in Real bout High School is a girl. They are both interesting to watch and if you liked the fighting style of either one you will surely like the other

Shootfighter Tekken

Shootfighter Tekken
  • OVA (3 eps x 45 min)
  • 2002

During his prime, Keybo Miyazawa's father fought the legendary Iron Kiba. Though they came to a stalemate, Kiba lost an eye and has held a grudge to this very day. Now, in the present, Keybo is the successor of the murderous Nanshin Shadow Style, which can easily kill a man where he stands. His father trains him well, but soon Kiba reappears and the two decide that Keybo and Kiba's disciples must battle to put an end to their feud. With many opponents in his way and no end to the feud (or Kiba's hatred) in sight, Keybo must deliver blow after bloody blow to clear his family's name and uphold the Nanshin Shadow Style.
