Haikyuu!!

Haikyuu!!

Shoyo Hinata isn't a large guy, but he's got huge ambitions. Ever since seeing a small player score in a National Championship, he's been determined to become the next big thing in High School Volleyball. Unfortunately, the one time he was able to pull enough players together to form a team in junior high, they were completely trashed in their first and only match against a team led by up-and-coming setter Tobio Kageyama.Now, enrolled at the same high school where his idol once played, Shoyo's finally going to get his shot to join and play with a top team. There's just one problem: Tobio Kageyama's decided to attend the same school, and he's already considered one of the best players in the game. Can a kid out of nowhere hold his own against the King of the Court? Or could the rivalry and competition actually be the best thing for both of them?

Both are shounen anime's about similar sports (basketball/volleyball) and the struggles/team building that take place in their respective schools. 

Sekoiya Sekoiya says...

The main characters struggle with their height, making it difficult to play their favorite sport. Despite that, they make up for it with other amazing skills and friends.

Mantar Mantar says...

Both sports need height and they both are small It that doesn’t mean they can’t play And the character development is great

One of the animes is a sumo and other is a basketball but at the start of them at the high schools, the club is taken over by deliquents when the main character first get to their school but the clubs soon start training to become the best.

One Main Male character lacks the physique typically required for a sport they love. Their “inferior” physical stature doesn’t hold them back from putting everything + into their respective sport. Both short-statued m.m.c’s build a team that aids and riles them up. Both dream of getting better and seek to find others enthusiastic about their respective sport.

Both anime’s delve into talent vs hard work and the ways in which varying degrees of the two combined aid or hinder not just the m.c.s but secondary and minor characters as well. 

Both animes also start off with delinquents who pose a threat to the team and the m.m.c. has to show them how to put their abilities towards something productive rather than destructive.

The main characters are both short, and underestimated by their opponents. Both characters also have a team who would do anything and everything for them. It's a show where they all grow, and learn together.

Sakuragi has hit an all-time low. During his last year of junior high school, fifty different girls rejected him, the last one choosing a basketball player instead. Thus it’s no surprise that in high school, Sakuragi beats up anyone who dares utter the name of the sport. However, it’s not long until he meets Haruko, a beautiful basketball enthusiast, and is determined to make her fall in love with him – even signing up for the school team to accomplish his goal. However, winning Haruko’s heart won’t be easy, as her brother is the strict and protective captain of the basketball team and Haruko’s eyes are focused on Sakuragi’s rival, the talented Rukawa. Can Sakuragi give up his delinquent ways to help get the team to Nationals, or will his temper get him kicked out before he can learn to dribble the ball?

Both sports anime are centred around basketball in a school setting. One focus' around a boy trying to rebuild the school basketball team and the other looking to join a team.
