Both kongoh bancho and HSDK contain over the top fighting, and some near superhuman characters. HSDK has more character progression and is more enjoyable(in my opinion) and in-depth, though both are fun and crazy shounen/fighting manga.

Eager to become stronger, the boy begged Yoochun to train him; and after several years of preparation, the man finally agrees to teach him his special skill, Lightning Fist. But soon, Gangryong is approached by a seedy organization named Reunion with a message: Yoochun is dead by their hands, and as his successor, the boy must become a member of Reunion. Once he becomes as strong as his deceased mentor, Gangryong can know more about Yoochun's death. And so, the would-be martial artist heads to a special school for Reunion candidates, eager to fight foes and allies to prove his strength along the way.

Both anime are focused on martial arts and the main character is suddenly taken to somewhere to to learn martial arts and eventually after a few months they become so strong that they can take down people who've been training all their lives and eventually fight against another group other than theirs.

Aside from a general, "Shounen FTW" aspect, both Law of Ueki and History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi share a few similarities that make either one worth trying if you liked the other. Both focus heavily on the idea of justice, and right and wrong, as well as that of hard work. While the two protagonistsare complete contrasts in terms of natural ability, both place heavy emphasis of working hard to achieve their goal. Both also have a similar tournament-esque format with the characters progressing through ever-increasingly difficult fights.

Isamu Take is a child genius who excels in everything he does. Forced by his parents to go to a regular elementary school, Isamu spends his time in boredom, looking down on his peers as nothing more than ungifted garbage; but when he meets Moka Kaname, his dull school life is set to change. The young girl, who has just transferred from Osaka, is a complete boxing nut, a trait that Isamu immediately finds vulgar. However, after an encounter with some delinquents, the arrogant boy discovers that not only is Moka incredibly strong, but she’s also smarter than he is! Now, having fallen in love with his new rival, Isamu needs to find a way to end more time with her, and he’s found the perfect thing: boxing.

While HSDK focuses on marital arts and Buyuden on boxing, both are about a beginner attempting to become stronger and more powerful. Both also feature a male protagonist whose abilities are far outstripped by the girl he has a crush on. If you enjoy either aspect in one of these manga, then check out the other.

Both Zippy Ziggy and History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi feature a physically weak boy who joins (or is made to join) a dojo in order to become strong. Both of those series also feature a very strong female lead who pretends to be weak and who is already part of the dojo. You could say that the main duo in History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi are nice kids. Compare to them their Zippy Ziggy counter parts are massively messed up. Although Zippy Ziggy doesn't contain as many fights as History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi, you're probably still going to enjoy one if you liked the other.
