Now, two newcomers have disturbed the order of this school, becoming entangled in this vicious feud. Caught between sexy babes and terrible powers, the battle to be the strongest begins!

Air Master

Air Master

Aikawa Maki, a high school student (with a reputation of being an exceptional street fighter), is known on the streets as Air Master. Standing at seven feet tall, she has the ability to seemingly fly through the air. Trying to attain the highest level of excitement and tension, she searches for stronger opponents. Will she find them or will they find her first, as they fight it out in the aerial arena?

High school violence and ecchi are big features of both Air Master and Tenjou Tenge. While the former is known for its odd (some say unatractive) character designs, the later's character designs are awesome. Of course Air Master does have some of the best fights in anime.
Two god series about fighting, both have god and interesting characters but TT have the better plot of them both. Air Master gains some ground due to the better fights in it. Both are really worth watching for anyone that likes a god animefight.

Violence has a rhythm of its own. In Tenjou Tenge, the rhythm is the struggle between two groups in a high school obsessed with martial arts of every kind. In Air Master, a different, more individualistic, approach is taken - yet the struggle is no less intense.

Sounds dreary and serious, doesn't it? Well, forget about that! Without giving up the element of drama and descending into parody, these are two of the funniest fighting anime you're ever likely to see. The battles are a joy to watch - they're in turns hilarious and stunning. If you like either of these fighting animes, give the other a chance.


Air Master and tenjho tenge are both great fighting anime with added ecchi. Tenjho tenge's main characters (the teenage boys at least) start off as typical delinquents then get strong, but air master's Maki starts off pretty strong, then pulls off crazy new moves to defeat her stronger opponents. Both have great fights, plus ecchi and some light comedy(mainly air master, it had some good funny moments XD) If you liked one, you should like the other.

Ikkitousen: Dragon Destiny

Ikkitousen: Dragon Destiny

In the Kanto region, three schools compete with each other to gain dominance over the other territories: Kyosho Academy, led by Sousou Moutoku; Nanyo Academy, led by Sonsaku Hakufu; and Seito High School, led by Ryuubi Gentoku. Ikkitousen, or "Fighters" are the ones partaking in these fights, and each one is acting upon a fate that has been handed down to them for over 1800 years. Moutoku of Nanyo is in search of the Dragon Jade, a mystical orb that is said to be able to change people’s destinies. However, it would seem that she is not the only one interested in this powerful jade. Kyosho Academy is slowly gaining dominance over the land, but will the Ikkitousen’s destinies change before Moutoku conquers every territory?

Both Ikkitousen Dragon Destiny and Tenjho Tenge are over-the-top high school life-style anime with plenty of martial arts and fanservice. The fighting has a mystical element common to many anime, with explosions and strange, violent powers controlled by the spiritual skills of the fighter. The fanservice includes lots of panty shots and all the high school girls seem to have ginourmous boobs.

Both of these anime touch on adult themes, such as rape, and of course, gratuitous violence.


Both series have beautiful, strong and very powerful main characters, and their plots are really deep - that is they're not just based on fan service. Ikkitousen has an interesting non-fictional historical background, and Tenjho Tenge's plot tells you the story of three generation of warriors, so it's historical too.


Fighting and fanservice. Simple as that. Both have decent animation and fight scenes, as well as hot girls in skimpy clothing that disintegrates on touch! =P If you liked one you'll like the other. Watch them for the first two stated reasons, don't look for a story in them.


Both have a story of a power struggle, both have some pretty good fight scenes, and both off a LOT of Fan Service(if ya know what I mean). I enjoyed both series and feel they have a lot in common, and fans of martial arts series should enjoy the two.

Minato Sahashi was living a normal life; he had just failed his college entrance exam for a second year in a row, and lived a quiet life in a single's apartment. That is, until the busty Musubi fell from the sky on top of him! She is a Sekirei, one of 108 that are destined to fight each other until only one remains; and he or she will ascend to heaven with his or her chosen one known as an Ashikabi. Minato soon finds himself in the embrace of Musubi, becoming her Ashibaki - but his life will only become more complicated. Musubi isn't the last to claim Minato as her Ashibaki, and what's worse, plenty of other Sekirei and opponents stand in his way!

Both series have beautiful busty female characters, plenty of martial arts, and supernatural powers.


Unique characters and fan servcie and girl fighting are the main themes that these two anime. Sekirei is jam packed with girls with great fan service, while Tenjho Tenge only has about 4 girls. But in both animes the girl characters are written well. They all have unique fighting skills which makes for good story. In both animes, the some of the girls fall in love with the main hero, which creates interesting situations and character relations. I recommend both animes to anybody that enjoys well written and animated fighting anime.


both of these fighting anime involve plenty of ecchi, super-powered girls, and hair-styles that can only be found in alternate realities. The main girl is a busty, ditzy super-fighter that falls head-over-heels for her costar. If you like seeing scantily clad girls duking it out, these animes are for you.

Both main characters from these shows strive to be the strongest around, fighting new enemies each day that usually end up becoming their friends after the battles.


Violance, martial arts, underground fighting and kickass characters, you will find that and much more in both series. Both series are about the development of main characters from street punks up to serious underground fighters. You may say a lot of bad things about both series but you can’t say that they are boring.
