These manga may be about different sports, with Haikyuu!! being based around volleyball, but they share so much in common that I find it hard to believe that a fan of one wouldn't enjoy the other quite a bit.

The story in each revolves around a highschool team who's a little bit down on their luck until they get an influx of fresh talent into the team in the form of skilled first years. The main characters in each also happen to be two of these new first years, and not only do each pair have unorthodox skills and stature, but they share a very similar dynamic in regards to their interactions and relationships. From there each team goes through the usual high school competitions, be it at a local or national level.

The supporting cast in each is pretty good, and is often used for comedic reasons outside of matches. During the matches the themes of teamwork and determination to overcome the odds are strong. The matches also happen to be extremely exciting in each, and make the wait for the next chapter pretty excruciating at times. 

So if you are a fan of the other, then i urge you to give the other a shot, I highly doubt you'll end up disappointed. And if the sport is putting you off because you're not a fan of it, then don't worry, I'm not a fan of volleyball but i adored Haikyuu!! for plenty other reasons!

Sakamichi is a die-hard otaku; he loves anime and manga, and rides his clunky bicycle over 90 kilometers to Akihabara each week for the latest toys and games. Upon entering high school, Sakamichi is thrilled to meet others that share his passion, but soon discovers that the anime club is defunct and in need of members. Meanwhile, a skilled cyclist and fellow classmate Shunsuke has his eye on the boy, having seen his incredible speed, even while riding such a heavy “mom cycle.” Now, Sakamichi must decide if he wants to stick with his would-be anime club, or join Shunsuke and other new friends for the ride of his life in the Competitive Cycling Club, where fierce races and other adventures await them!

Both series Prot is a normal guy who isn't very good at sports and socially with others. Both have their talent exposed to them by a Senior who see's them by luck.

Both series feature prot who has to endure hardships, training from hell to play with his comrades and make them able to win the championship they have been aiming for.

Both have nice art style and bit of comedy moments.The character development is good in both series as awell.
