YP and HnI both feature socially awkard main guy, who dont have any friends at start, Both have inert talent of sport (cycling and boxing) but doesn't know at start.

The protagonists of both series gain confidence and grow as characters through learning about their sport. While training they develop strong friendships with their teamates or training partners.

Definetely read one, if you liked other. Both have many similarities whether its training or spirit of characters.

Eyeshield 21

Eyeshield 21

Ever since Sena was little, everyone has treated him as an errand boy. His childhood friend, Mamori, even has to protect him from bullies all the time, although she's a girl. Fortunately, in order to evade his tormentors, Sena has developed incredibly fast legs; in fact, Sena is so fast that he is noticed by Himura, the quarterback of a failing football team, who promptly tricks him into joining. However, in order to keep other teams from scouting him, and to keep Mamori from finding out that he's in such a dangerous sport, Sena wears an eyeshield and goes by the name of "Eyeshield 21". For someone like Sena, making it in the tough world of football is a challenge like no other, but also the once-in-a-lifetime chance to become someone others respect!

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.

While both series feature different sport - Soccer in AnK and Cycling in Yowa, The feeling is same.

Both MC has immerse talent in sport but is drawn out by someone else. Both characters are down to earth and aren't overconfident in their abilities and clearly recognize their weakness.

Their is good deal of character developnment, Individual and teamwise. We see heated rivaleries betweem players and individuals and also deep trust in each other abilities.
