Synopsis:

Meet Ryoma Echizen, the cocky prince of tennis. He comes to Japan from America where he is known as the Prince of Tennis – but that is no surprise considering he is the son of the former tennis pro, Nanjiroh Echizen, otherwise known as the Samurai! Upon transferring to the school Seishun Gakuen, he meets the regulars of the tennis club, and becomes the first freshman to become a regular; but he has a lot to learn yet about being a tennis star. Ryoma, along with the rest of his teammates, aspire to win the Nationals; but first, they must defeat the other teams which stand in their way!

Kuroko's Basketball

Kuroko's Basketball

They were known as the 'Generation of Miracles' – five basketball prodigies who helped lead Teiko Middle School's basketball team to glory, defeating anyone who got in their way. But a mysterious rumor tells of a sixth, a phantom player who the five prodigies respected greatly. That boy is Tetsuya Kuroko, a freshman at Seirin High and the newest member of the basketball club. Alongside strong teammates such as Taiga Kagami, Kuroko will use his unique skills on the court to help the team defeat old rivals and make their way to the championships.

Naruto

Naruto

Naruto Uzumaki is a young ninja who bears a great power hidden inside him, a power that has isolated him from the rest of his village. As such, his only dream is to become the Hokage - the most powerful ninja, and leader of the village; but first he needs to graduate! With his inability to perform even the most basic ninja techniques, it seems that all Naruto has going for him is his determination to succeed no matter what. Teamed up with the genius Sasuke, book-smart Sakura, and their team leader Kakashi, Naruto embarks on his quest to become the Hokage. But with outside forces posing a threat to the entire Hidden Leaf village, Naruto discovers that he must become much stronger if he ever wants to realize his dream and protect the friendships he's forged.

Similar-aged main-character. Main character kinda sucks, but he also has incredible potential. Much like Prince of Tennis, Naruto is still on the air in Japan as of August 2003. Very similar periodic series with easily identifiable plot segments that are more-or-less independent of one another.

As hard of a connection as this may seem, both charas seem to come up with new moves every battle. Both are prodegies in their own respects. Teams are formed and many sibling rivalries take place.

animegal33

Both Naruto and Prince of Tennis have a main character as a boy who is dedicated to something (Naruto to becoming Hokage and Ryoma to getting better at tennis and beating his father). They both also have to face obsticles as they try to reach their goal. Both of these main characters grow everytime they "fight" (Ryoma "fights" on the tennis court).

Slam Dunk

Slam Dunk

Sakuragi has hit an all-time low. During his last year of junior high school, fifty different girls rejected him, the last one choosing a basketball player instead. Thus it’s no surprise that in high school, Sakuragi beats up anyone who dares utter the name of the sport. However, it’s not long until he meets Haruko, a beautiful basketball enthusiast, and is determined to make her fall in love with him – even signing up for the school team to accomplish his goal. However, winning Haruko’s heart won’t be easy, as her brother is the strict and protective captain of the basketball team and Haruko’s eyes are focused on Sakuragi’s rival, the talented Rukawa. Can Sakuragi give up his delinquent ways to help get the team to Nationals, or will his temper get him kicked out before he can learn to dribble the ball?

These are both really long running sports series, that as i understand it, were insanely popular in japan at the tim (well, PoT is still running...) and the layout is the same, with long drawn out battles with ever stronger opponents on the way to the national championship! however, imho slam dunk pulls off the main characters romance much better, so take this less well known but awesome anime for a spin.
rinnei

Both Slam Dunk and Prince of Tennis are obviously about sports.  Both anime are really funny and show the determination needed for their respective teams to be the best.

shinigamidono

Both anime basically involve the main character training and participating in game after game as the peanut gallery cheers, watches in amazement, and comments of everything.

Ookiku Furikabutte

Ookiku Furikabutte

Ren Mihashi is a timid pitcher with problems; he has no self esteem or confidence, due to the relentless bullying of his once teammates, and is reluctant to play baseball again. However, at Ren's new school, Nishiura Prefectural High, he finds himself picking up the mitt once more. Along with the help of alumni-turned-coach Maria Momoe, tough but supportive Takaya Abe, and the rest of his teammates, Ren will regain his confidence and show the game of baseball who's the boss yet again!

Like Prince of Tennis this anime is also about Highscoolers with a passion for sports. Here the focus is on Ren Mihashi, who is a complete oposite to Ryoma when it comes to personality. Where Ryoma is arrogant and full of confidence, Mihashi is timid and darn close to pathetic. His flaky nature can be annoying to some but I found him adorable and hilarious.

But just as in Prince of Tennis it is all about growing in skill and strength through hard work and with the support of the team. In Ookiku especially it is about the team. And it is a well made out gallery of characters that make up the baseball team that Mihashi becomes the ace pitcher for.

Kio

Both series are about sports. Set a goal and reach it! It’s about hard work as a team, lots of training and also lots of interesting moments. Both anime have many awesome characters and you will find someone you like of course.

Although they are about different sports, both have one thing in common. Both are about a young boy trying to achieve a goal. If that's what you liked about Whistle than you might like Prince of Tennis, even though it's not as realistic as Whistle. Another thing is in Whistle the boy is just starting out on his way towards his goal, where as in Prince of Tennis he's about half way toward's his goal. Prince of Tennis is a newer animation with a few funnier scenes where as Whistle is older and a little bit more serious. I liked them both in which the main characters are both very determined and work hard to reach their goals.
yasmina

The plot of Prince of Tennis and Whistle is quite similar. Although not exactly the same, both focus on a young boy overcoming difficulties to become something bigger. Whistle is filled with exhilarating sports and like Prince of Tennis, it really draws in the audience's attention to the exciting games.
