Kai and Hashim enjoy hanging out at Penny's Cafe with their rest of their gang, the Saru 'tribe'. Good-natured and fun-loving, the Sarus take in meek and geeky Tamiyama who wishes to join their gang, appointing him as secretary for lack of other obvious abilities. Befriended by Kai and Hashim, Tamiyama doesn't have time to get to grips with tribe life before disaster strikes the Sarus: a leading fighter of a rival gang is sent to assassinate Saru's leader. The assassin turns out to be Mera, Kai's friend growing up. Brandishing a baseball bat against Mera's katana, the two friends now find themselves as rivals in an escalating war between the tribes...
Samurai Champloo is all about style, from the dj-style scratching scene changes to the hip-hop-inspired soundtrack to the eclectic character design. Mugen's fighting style is a funky meld of capoeira and limb-cutting, and Jin is the dramatic foil; he is all steel and old-school samurai style. What binds them together is the desire to test each other's abilities, and a promise to a girl named Fuu: to find the samurai that smells of sunflowers, who plays a pivotal role in her past. Together they travel through edo-era Japan, finding battle and comedy wherever they stop.
This is the only show I can think of that comes close to Tokyo Tribe 2.
Tokyo Tribe 2 is a funky, action-packed amalgam of different styles and influences, and guess what? So is Samurai Champloo!
Both of the shows don't take themselves too seriously, with over-the-top characters and unrealistic situations. But in the end, they are both really fun to watch.
I'm sure you'll like Samurai Champloo.
Samurai Champloo is the only series I can think of that is similar to Tokyo Tribe 2.
Both series have a very urban theme (TT2 moreso since it's actually about street gangs) to them from the fresh hip-hop soundtracks to the unconventional character art styles.
Looking for a change, Mikado moves from the countryside to bustling Ikebukuro to attend the same high school as his best friend, Masaomi. Though navigating a new school and friendships can prove tough by itself, Mikado also finds an overwhelming number of new delights and dangers in the district he now calls home. From a friendly Russian sushi bar to the violent color gangs, to even an urban legend in the form of a black motorcycle rider, each resident of Ikebukuro is unique and frightening. But the town is smaller than it seems at first, and these strange events appear to be connected. Will the growing storm sweep up the transplanted country boy and his friends or will Mikado find himself at the center of a dramatic change for Tokyo?
Both anime are about gangs. In Durara it's the yellow scarves, the blue squares, the dollars, and the saika.
In Tokyo Tribe it's the Saru, The Waru, The Bulldog 045, The Shinjuku Hands, and many others. The main characters are the leaders of the main gangs in both anime. Also, the were very close friends. The climax of both involve all the gangs thrust into chaos, in a war against one another. If you liked one give the other a try.
