Ippo Makunouchi is a loser. He has no friends, he spends his free time helping his mom with work, and he's constantly being beaten up by bullies. But that all changes when one day he's saved from another beating by Takamura, an up-and-coming boxer. Soon, Ippo turns his life around with a passion for the newly discovered sport, but his new lifestyle is far from easy! Before he can even dream of becoming champion, he'll have to overcome a slew of fierce rivals and learn what 'dedication' really means.
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?

The Red Ribbon Army will do everything in their power to obtain the Dragon Balls and eliminate anyone who stands in their way, even Goku and his friends!
There are plenty of anime where a character with great powers fights his way through a load of villains while becoming stronger. Yet there aren't plenty that add such a relaxed, fun and adventurous feeling to it. Both One Piece and the 4th DB movie are pure enjoyment aimed at the same fans.
Satoshi and Arumi have been friends since early childhood, but now Arumi's family is moving to Hokkaido, deeply upsetting her long-time friend. However, when Arumi's grandfather accidentally breaks the pelican statue atop his restaurant, the duo find their world turned upside down and not quite as they left it. From a fairy tale kingdom, to kung fu China, to the prehistoric age and everything in between, Arumi and Satoshi can't quite seem to figure out where they are, or better yet, how they can manage to get home to their own Abenobashi Shoutengai!
Got a craving for some ridiculously humorous fantasy? Travelling to worlds you've only ever dreamed about has never been as easy as watching anime before. Both have those quirky bits that just pop out and capture your heart while having moments that lure you in with the "I need to know whats going to happen." Both are definatly adventures that need to be had.
The future of humanity is in peril, as they are confronted with the threat of an intergalactic clash with a warrior-like alien race, and the only one who can save them is... Captain Tylor?! Join a crew of misfits and rejects including an alcoholic doctor, a gorgeous nurse, an anal-retentive commander and a bunch of really stupid marines as they try to make it out in space and to discover whether their captain is a misunderstood genius or a total moron like he seems to be.
Leadership is a very difficult thing. Someone says you can’t learn it but only gain from God. For Luffy and Tylor it's absolutely true. Main screen time they acting like fools without realizing what’s really going on, but when time comes they somehow managing to turn everything for their own benefit. Two desperate heaven-born captains definitely put these series together.
If One Piece’s length and Captain Tylor’s release date doesn’t scary you go ahead and watch them. You won’t be disappointed because a great comedy is a one more reason to unite these series.
