Both Wild Striker and Whistle are about washed-up soccer players who enjoy the sport, but suck at it, so they work hard and improve. Both series depict their struggles and efforts.

Both anime are about soccer or football call it what you like. Both main characters had famous football players as fathers. They are typical sport genre, although they may not seem similiar, as you watch it, you will see counless resemblances.I'm sure you will enjoy both shows equally.

While Kazamatsuri in Whistle is hardworking and simple minded the protagonist in Hungry Heart is hot-temperd and talented. It's all about soccer. Like Mizuno in Whistle, the protagonist Kyosuke Kanou in Hungry Heart has comrades too. They are really awesome.

Captain Tsubasa

Did i hear a goal? Yes i did and if you only watched one of these animes, Hungry Heart or Captain Tsubasa than you are missing out on the funalicious soccer matches. Loads of kicking of balls and a great story plot to boot! Most of the things involves around soccer in these 2 animes so watch em both if you are a fan of soccer!

You love soccer ? Then you can... or mayby you should watch one of this both anime series :) They are simply about soccer, the main characters love soccer and are fighting to be the best players. To stand in front of strong foes it's all about it and having fun doing it :D

Both anime are about aspiration and hard work, about "above average" skills, that the main characters have :) You can see friedship, joy and sorrow when the both teams are trying their best to achieve theire goals. You can feel the ambition from Tsubasa and Kyosuke and that's so interesting :)

When you watch both anime series you'll see that they are not the same in some aspects like in Hungry Heart you'll have more funny scenes and more "school live" elements. And of course both main characters have different personalitys, they aren't similar at all xD

Have fun wathing them :) it's worth it but a say it.. the both series are for soccer fans, there are other aspects in that you could enjoy, but mainly they are about soccer fights, fighting with more stronger enemies and so on.

Wild Striker and Prince of Tennis may be about different sports but they are both about a boy trying to reach his goal by facing off with stronger opponents until he reaches the top. Both have a light comical side and are a tad unrealistic.

eppie

For those who enjoy a cocky main character in a sports anime who already knows he's been blessed with talent, Prince of Tennis and Wild Striker have the main character you are looking for. I usually watch sports anime that involve the main character discovering they have talent in a sport, but these two anime were still a very nice contrast to what I usually watch.

Slam Dunk

Sakuragi has hit an all-time low. During his last year of junior high school, fifty different girls rejected him, the last one choosing a basketball player instead. Thus it’s no surprise that in high school, Sakuragi beats up anyone who dares utter the name of the sport. However, it’s not long until he meets Haruko, a beautiful basketball enthusiast, and is determined to make her fall in love with him – even signing up for the school team to accomplish his goal. However, winning Haruko’s heart won’t be easy, as her brother is the strict and protective captain of the basketball team and Haruko’s eyes are focused on Sakuragi’s rival, the talented Rukawa. Can Sakuragi give up his delinquent ways to help get the team to Nationals, or will his temper get him kicked out before he can learn to dribble the ball?

Both Slam Dunk and Wild Striker are sports series in which the lead character starts out rebellious and stuck on his ways, but later matures through the love he has for the sport.

Both shows have a redhead tough guy with insane power and reflexes that takes interest in a sport (soccer vs. basketball) and is quite talented at it but often make goofy mistakes. Both are very cocky and talk a lot. Also, Both shows have a gorilla-looking character that puts the redhead in his place with a knock or two when he gets out of line for comedic effect. Aside from the sport in question, the two series are extremely similar.

Both show a persons journey into becoming one of the best high school soccer players around. These series also both involve alot of heavy soccer action, perfect for the anime and soccer fan.

Fuma

Both of these series are about epic battles in soccer and how 3 guys teamwork can help develop a team despite differences, they also share a bit about rules and regulations for those who don't know much about the game. Both as a whole share great characters that develop greatly and a little romance and comedy well placed to keep you wanting more. The last aspect that will make you love both is how they both end leaving you with the hunger for more.
