Both anime are about soccer or football call it what you like. Both main characters had famous football players as fathers. They are typical sport genre, although they may not seem similiar, as you watch it, you will see counless resemblances.I'm sure you will enjoy both shows equally.

While Kazamatsuri in Whistle is hardworking and simple minded the protagonist in Hungry Heart is hot-temperd and talented. It's all about soccer. Like Mizuno in Whistle, the protagonist Kyosuke Kanou in Hungry Heart has comrades too. They are really awesome.

Both of these series are character driven sports anime, which is a rarity in that genre. They also focus on how hard the players practice to become good instead of having it be a miracle discovery. Also! This is my favorite feature! They don't make up names for they're 'moves'! So it never gets annoying to watch, and the outcomes of the games aren't as predictable in these series as they are in most sports anime.

Well both anime concentrate on sports and character development. Main characters aren't very attractive on the first look but as the times passes you grow addicted. Also characters in both anime are easily likeable and because they're typical sport anime most of the time the series are lighthearted and enjoyable for all age viewers.

Both series are about playing soccer. The main characters want to be the #1 in their soccer team. They are the ones that gets the team together and get to the top. Aoki Densetsu Shoot have love triangle and Whistle doesn't. So if you like one you'd like the other one.

Sport anime about friendship, loyalty and that hard work overcomes talent. There's not much violance in both anime however they are about contact sports so sometimes there is some miss-happening but nothing involving much brutality. If you liked one you should enjoy the other.

If you forget about the age diffrence you will have a great time watching both anime. They are both about soccer, realising one's dreams and friendship.I'm sure if you liked one you'd like the other. It's a really good story about characters evolving.
