Hunter x Hunter

Hunter x Hunter

Drawn to the mystique of the unknown, Hunters travel the world in search of terrifying creatures, incredible riches, and unexplored lands. Gon Freecss is a naive-yet-determined young boy who aspires to join the ranks of these individuals, in order to find his missing father Ging - a master of the profession himself. To reach his goal, he partakes in the formidable Hunter Exam, a series of tests that push the participants to their physical and mental limits, with a Hunter License as the prize. During the exam Gon befriends vengeful Kurapika, doctor-to-be Leorio, and skilled assassin Killua, who have entered for their own reasons. But with the sinister Hisoka standing in their way, will Gon and his friends be able to succeed in obtaining their reward, or even escaping with their lives?

Honda Goro and Gon Freaks are similar characters; both have a very positive attitude and are determined to reach their goals. Seeing as how each of these characters are a central element to their show, liking one of these anime suggests you'd like the other.

They are also both coming of age stories that have an upbeat mood, but also have intense moments.

NimirRa NimirRa says...

These two shows star an upbeat and ambitious boy that trains hard to meet his goals. Though the two characters have one major difference: Gon displays a maturity beyond his years and teaches others things whereas Goro acts more his age and learns more from those around him. Despite that, the similaries in theme make the shows an obvious recommendation for each other.

One Outs

One Outs

Kojima is a baseball legend. As the superstar cleanup hitter for the Lycaons, he won himself many awards including rookie of the year seven times; but there's one title he never acquired: champion. In an attempt to find that special something Kojima feels he's missing inside, he opens a training camp in Okinawa. There, through a series of events, Kojima is introduced to a high stakes game dominated by the talented Toua Tokuchi, and subsequently loses a fortune. However, Kojima finally defeats Toua and due to their agreement, he enlists him to join the now poorly-ranked Lycaons - but Toua demands a high price: instead of a salary, he will receive five million yen for each out, and lose fifty million yen for each point lost. With a bad attitude and prodigal skills, Toua will help transform the Lycaons into winners once more.

You should definitely try One Outs next if you really like Major. One Outs has a fantastic protagonist as memorable and engaging as Goro. Except Toua Tokuchi is the complete opposite to Goro in that he's cynical, dark, and totally comfortable using sneaky methods to win. How he does this, though, is just as AWESOME as Goro at his most kick-arse. In short, One Outs is what you would get if you crossed Major with Death Note, and I think that should be recommendation enough.

Both are great quality sports anime with great effects and special talents like incredible striking power in Hungry Heart - Wild Striker and high-speed pitching in Major. If you liked one, you'd surely like the other.

In both anime shows there is boy who loves a certain sport. Daichi who loves soccer and Honda Goro who loves baseball. Both main characters are high-spirited persons who are giving their best, they are really stubborn too.

Beside the main charachters there are the "team mades" and frends who are supporting our heroes. More depth to the shows are giving the personal stories from the characters.

Daichi and Goro are fighting through some difficulties but never loosing "the spirit" and they are doing some progress :)

Simply put ;D when you like Ganbare! Kickers you will like Major Season 1 :) and when you liked Major Season 1 you will want to watch Ganbare! Kickers :D

Enjoy watching ^.^ Cheers :)
