If you're looking for anime similar to AOKANA: Four Rhythm Across the Blue, you might like these titles.
What if roller skates had high power engines that enabled the skaters to do stunning new tricks that defy gravity? What if you saw a beautiful girl effortlessly glide through the air with them? To Ikki, this is reason enough to secretly borrow a pair of Air Treck skates, and step into an underground world filled with gang fights and strange customs. Enamored with high-flying stunts and the flirtatious Simca, Ikki forms an Air Treck gang of his own and starts a life of fighting rival gangs and flying over the rooftops, chasing the girl always one kick ahead of him.
Both of these anime revolve around really awesome footwear, whether you're battling with your inline skates or flying with your sneakers. Both of the anime feature a newbie to the technology witnessing some high-flying antics and immediately wanting to learn the sport involving these fancy shoes. Why not try both of these because, after all, shoes come in pairs?
Okay, when I watched Aokana, I've been crazy about finding another anime that's almost the same as it. Air gear was the one. If you like sci-fi and mind-blowing mid-air movements, then you better watch these two! In Aokana, the characters literally fly in the air to do races. Though in Air Gear, the characters wear these roller blades and do some crazy tricks when they jump and when they're in mid-air. In anyways, I think these anime are worth watching! ^_^
Both shows feature a beginner at an awesome new sport (that isn't so new to them- but amazes us due to its revolutionariness) where the person must wear technology on their feet. Very cool stuff!
Horses dashing gallantly... Knights challenging their own limits... Magnificent, heroic battles highlight the horseback lance sport of jousting. One of the many people fascinated by this proud sport, Mizuno Takahiro, acts as a begleiter (an assistant) to jousting knights as he lives his rather tedious life at Winford Academy. This is the story of Takahiro and these female knights in their passionate, noble battles.
Pinkhaired, airheaded, and clumsy Main Girl is completely new to the popular sport and gets trained by Main Guy, who is known to be the very best but has recently retired. Both have fanservice and were based on visual novels. Exact same setup here.
Invertia… an unprecedented disaster that struck the world during the 20th century. Because of this disaster, numerous cities around the world were destroyed. However, within the meteor, an unknown element called mana was discovered, which allowed human technology to make rapid strides. This also gave rise to a new species of human born with unique skills – the Star Pulse Generation. The setting for the world’s greatest comprehensive battle spectacle, the Festas, is an academy city above the water surrounded by six academies called Rikka also commonly known as Asterisk.
These two are extemely similar, well at least in my eyes. Both have similar characters with a couple of exceptions. They are all based in a school and around these competitions between students with certain abilities. The Asterisk War it's kind of based on quite a few based on weapon whereas AOKANA is more about racing using flight. The idea of most of the cast being female as well is prominant in both, plus fanservice. If you enjoyed one you may enjoy the other.
Nana and her classmate, Takeru, are desperate to resurrect their school’s Stride Club—but will they be able to get the prickly Riku, who insists he hates Stride, to join the team?
I think that both these anime are similar because they both are focused on sports and competition. They both show that you really just have to find something you enjoy in what you do- although Four Rhythm is more on the sci-fi side than Prince of Stride is. Both also show characters helping each other out, as well as rivals supporting each other and cheering each other on.

The excitement doesn't stop there either. An enigma of a student has arrived at the school and it seems everyone, student and teacher alike, have some sort of memory of him.
