Simon lives a boring life in the underground village of Jeeha, where his main job day in and day out is to dig tunnels. His close friend Kamina, however, longs to bust out of their oppressive existence and reach the surface world where open skies and adventure await! One day, during his usual digs, Simon discovers a robot with a big face buried amongst the rocks. No sooner has he shown Kamina his mysterious find when two beings from the surface crash land into Jeeha Village - one is a gun-toting woman calling herself Yoko and the other is a terrifying mecha piloted by a Beastman! Seeing their chance to escape village drudgery, Kamina rallies Simon and Yoko to defeat the invader using their new robot, Lagann. However, upon breaking out onto the surface world, Simon, Kamina, and Yoko encounter enemies more powerful than they could have envisioned.

These series are about having fun and a few laughs. Don't let that decieve you though as they both can be very deep when neccesary. True the main characters are nothing alike:but If you enjoy One Piece, you'll get a kick outta Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann!

Both anime have non stop action and an amazing ray of characters that you are sure to love no matter how silly they are. There's plenty of meatbones to be nomnom'd because well they need to keep up their strength somehow to keep on fighting these epic battles. One Piece is more on the adventure side where TTGL is on the save our planet side. Try one if you liked the other.

Soul Eater

Soul Eater

In a bizarre fantasy world, students known as meisters are trained at the illustrious Shinigami Weapon Meister University; but the tools they wield are no ordinary weapons! Each meister is paired with a human-like being who can transform into a weapon at will; and after defeating a pre-kishin - a human whose soul has darkened - the weapon eats the soul within it. A meister's ultimate goal is to collect ninety-nine pre-kishin souls and one of a witch so that his or her partner will become an all-powerful Death Scythe. Maka and her partner Soul Eater; Assassin Black Star and his partner Demon Blade Tsubaki; and Shinigami's son Death the Kid and his partners the Demon Twin Pistol Thompson Sisters each vie for their ultimate goal, but plenty of challenges and adventures lie in their way!

There's an element of similar weirdness that permeates both One Piece and Soul Eater. Although the two anime don't share many plot points (apart from their quintessential shounen-ness), they both have a tone of over-the-top antics. People with weird and powerful abilities battling other people with weird and powerful abilities, the whole dominated by personalities that are so weird as to make the rest of the story seem almost vanilla normal.

If you like a series where every other battle makes you scratch your head, thinking: "How are they ever going to top that for weirdness?", then these are the anime for you.

They both have great action/fight and a great story. Luffy from one piece want to become a pirate king and soul wants to become a death sythe, you follow them both on their way to reach it and strong opponents appear which they have to defeat to reach their goal

On the face of it, both shows (Ippo and One Piece) are highly contrasting. But if you dig deeper, both main characters have a dream which they are striving to realise and willing to fight tooth and nail for. They are surrounded with strong people who help them along the way, and provide different 'rivers' for the story to flow along. You form an emotional attachment with each character, coming to understand why, what and who they are fighting for. Both shows are masterpieces of storytelling. Don't dismiss One Piece as a kiddie's show, because Ippo isn't just a sports anime, is it?

Groove Adventure Rave's adventure type anime provides serious and yet comical at times characters, who just about everyone can watch, laugh at or with, and enjoy.

Great Teacher Onizuka

Great Teacher Onizuka

With a history of leading a motorcycle gang and getting bad grades in school, why would 22 year old Onizuka ever want to become a teacher? Is it to educate young minds or spread the joy of education? Sure, if it involves being able to look up high school girls' skirts! Watch as this would-be educator uses his own life lessons and unconstituted methods as a means to control a delinquent class of students -- students who certainly aren't as happy to have him as a teacher as he is happy to be teaching...

For those of you who love comedy, you'll enjoy both Great Teacher Onizuka and One Piece. GTO is chock full of comical scenes, and even has action/martial arts in it.
