Both series have a more down-to-earth take on superheroes (or masked heroes in Samurai Flamenco) and how they would function in modern society. Both have a male lead duo that exchanges a lot of banter back and forth, and neither is especially serious.

If you found one to be in good fun you might want to check the other one out.

Both of these are shows about super heroes in a real world setting. They both feaute a pair of male leads that have interesting dialogues between them. Also both shows take a more light hearted approach to the material with lots of humor.

If you like one then you should check out the other.

While it's hard to say for sure while Samurai Flamenco is still running, there's some definite similarities in tone and theme.  What is a real hero?  How can you balance being a hero with your life and normal responsibilities?  Not to mention the way between heroes and their need to save people and elected officials.

Also, leads who must help everyone no matter how much trouble they cause.

Two guys--one serious and by-the-book, the other goofy but kind-hearted--team up together to fight crime! Before Samurai Flamenco even aired, I wondered if it was going to be similar to Tiger & Bunny. When I first started watching the show I thought I was mistaken. I don't want to spoil it, but they ended up being more similar than I expected. SamFlam is definitely more interested in parody, but otherwise both of these series share similar elements--the "buddy cop" relationship of the two leads, the mix of comedy, action and drama, the interest in how media would interplay with real-life superheroes, a strong supporting cast (some of which don't get nearly enough development), etc. Definitely a pair of superhero anime that are pretty similar--and both highly enjoyable, if flawed at times.

Both of these anime have a similar feel to them: Fun and wacky with some serious moments. They're both a great time... Action, comedy, superheros and yaoi undertones... What more could you want?

One-Punch Man

One-Punch Man

Saitama only became a hero for fun, but after three years of “special” training, he finds that he can beat even the mightiest opponents with a single punch. Though he faces new enemies every day, it turns out being devastatingly powerful is actually kind of a bore. Can a hero be too strong?

Tights & Masks for every soul! Yes, One-Punch Man is defnetely more violent, but both shows take Superpowers and Superhero character development to the next level.

Award Award says...

The same genres: ACTION, COMEDY, SCI FI, SUPERPOWERS.

In both anime:

- superheroes compete with each other and have their own rating;

- the protagonist works in tandem with another hero;

- a lot of superheroes with different powers, who belong to higher or lower leagues;

- shows how heroes integrate in modern society.

My Hero Academia

My Hero Academia

Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not going to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies. Now, the only thing standing between him and his first class is the academy’s formidable entrance exam—nothing a little private tutoring from the world’s mightiest hero can’t solve.

RickGrimes RickGrimes says...

Both anime have a similar superhero themes, with people being born with strange superpowers and its strange limitations. Tiger and Bunny focus more on the superhero industry would work if heros excistised while BnHA focuses more on superheros fighting villans.

Other than that both have:-

  1. A wide range of characters who all get good development
  2. A hero fighting for fame or wants to do good(cliched)
  3. Paternership and friendship
  4. Superb animation!
  5. A plot that is light and dosent need viewers full attention.
  6. A plot despite being light very engaging.

dahha dahha says...

both of these anime are heavily super hero saves the day based, with the main problems arising from issues of having/ controlling power, even the main characters powers are similar, if you like one you'll probably like the other

Both series have a similar fast-paced, action-packed feel to them. Awesome guys being heroes with a little bit of absurdity.

Such grim daydreams might occur when watching the dismal daily news, but on one fateful day, Light Yagami finds that these daydreams can become reality.

Although maybe at first glance they don't seem familliar at all, there is one key simmilarity that connects Tiger & Bunny and Death Note together: that is the concept of the never-ending fight between law and crime, and the many different perspectives one can view them from that both shows offer us. Although the main perspective is offered by main characters, when all is taken into consideration, in the end it is left to the vewer to actually choose what is really this 'justice' everyone is trying so hard to defend and carry out. Oh, and a couple more things: both series have a very balanced plot that is at times too intense to bear, and although the character pallette and the mood seem completely different from one another, the basic feeling after cooling off the series is practically the same (at least to me). :D Nevertheless, I recommend to at least check out the other if you've watched one.
