However, Buck’s life changes forever when he’s sold by the family’s gardener – a man he trusted – to become a work dog in the Gold Rush. Betrayed, Buck is forced to pull heavy sleighs away from his loving family. Can he survive in his new role and regain his trust in humans once more?

I have to say both are good where Call of the Wild is the realistic one as like as a record of history itself. Silver Fang then again is great with a lot cool moves and a lot plot changes to keep you on your toes. Well, guess Silver Fang is pretty much same as any shounen anime, protagonist characters are just mainly animals.

 Now why you should watch this one? Because both can be considered classics that are made with great effort. The Call of the Wilds doesn't have anything as outstanding as Silver Fang but it doesn't have anything bad either. A realistic work with average plot is not half bad for a change.

Salaryman Kintaro

Salaryman Kintaro

After former motorcycle gang leader Yajima Kintaro saves the life of the Yamato Construction Company's CEO, he is offered a job working for the company. However, when it becomes apparent that a corrupt faction of the company is trying to gain full control, Kintaro's moral and physical strengths become more useful than the CEO ever imagined. As he works his way up the career ladder Kintaro is forced to deal with many problems, from confrontations with Yakuza bosses to preventing the collapse of a tunnel. But can an uneducated and rowdy person really make it as a salaryman?

TheStampede01

Your probably wondering what a show about dogs fighting bears and a show about salarymen struggling against the bureaucracy have in common? Manly tears, and also both share a very extreme sense of comradarie. They have both have pretty bad animation too, although in the case of Gin it was because of the age of the series.

Stray dogs fighting for a pradise.... sounds familiar? Wolf's Rain reminds me alot of Silver Fang but it deals with wolves instead of dogs. They fight their way through and try to find their paradise just like Silver. So be sure to check it out if you liked Silver Fang

Do characters have auras?  If so, the title character Naruto of (obviously) Naruto and lead character Natsu from Fairy Tail seem to have very nearly the same aura.  Not personalities, mind you, though those are similar enough, but that indescribable quality that surrounds a person.  Impossibly high energy, justice-seeking, loyal friends, somewhat stupid walking-disasters...yet somehow still loveable.  If you can't get enough of that kind of guy, you won't get enough of Fairy Tail or Naruto.
