Giant Killing

Giant Killing

Years ago, the East Tokyo United soccer team was a force to be reckoned with, captained by the talented and charismatic Takeshi Tatsumi. But after leaving suddenly to join an amateur team in England, ETU's record and morale quickly plummeted, their meager status kept afloat only by the efforts of new captain Murakoshi. Now, several years have passed and Takeshi is in town once more, this time to bring the team back to victory. But with fans resentful of the man's former departure, clashing personalities on the team and Takeshi's unorthodox and lackadaisical coaching style, ETU's rise to fame won't be easy...

They're both sport anime that focuses alot on the games at hand an yet never loses focus of character development. Even though GK moves at a much faster pace than OF.

Ryo has always enjoyed baseball, and has an incredibly fast pitch to prove it. She is better than any man she knows, yet has never really put her skills to the test; after all, baseball is a “man’s game”... until now! Keiko Himura, the chairman of Kisuragi High, has a goal: to create a team that proves women can play just as well as men -- if not better -- and she has chosen Ryo to be the new team's captain! With 8 more teammates to find, can the girls lead the team to the ultimate victory, to win at the famous stadium Koshien?

Princess nine is about girls who form a baseball team with the goal of a national Championship. The girls are all freshmen, just like in Windup. Just a must see

Sakamichi is a die-hard otaku; he loves anime and manga, and rides his clunky bicycle over 90 kilometers to Akihabara each week for the latest toys and games. Upon entering high school, Sakamichi is thrilled to meet others that share his passion, but soon discovers that the anime club is defunct and in need of members. Meanwhile, a skilled cyclist and fellow classmate Shunsuke has his eye on the boy, having seen his incredible speed, even while riding such a heavy "mom cycle." Now, Sakamichi must decide if he wants to stick with his would-be anime club, or join Shunsuke and other new friends for the ride of his life in the Competitive Cycling Club, where fierce races and other adventures await them!

While focusing on different sports, both Ookiku and Yowapeda focus on fairly bizarre main characters who get involved into a sport they are quite good at. A similar mix of comedy and action, and a similar tone and feel, await you in both titles.

Both are sports animes, but so much more then sports. I found both to be highly amusing. friendships, competition, and teamwork. 

Ace of the Diamond

Ace of the Diamond

I want to pitch to that mitt again... A meeting with catcher Kazuya Miyuki changed the 15-year-old Eijun Sawamura's life. He said goodbye to all his friends and knocked upon the door of Seidou, a prestigious baseball school, intent on testing his own strength. There, he met many proud baseball players who were betting everything on the sport! A classic tale, yet new and fresh.

Both series tell the stories of highschool baseball pitchers. While Sawamura in Ace of the Diamond is flamboyantly self-assured though lacking control, Ren in BigWindup! (Ookiku Furikabutte) has developed remarkable pitch control but has never believed in himself for reasons explored. The protagonists of both stories develop as individuals through being part of the team. I personally find Ace of the Diamond far more compelling, but other viewers could easily feel just the opposite.
