Both of these popular series focus on the same thing: racing!

That's not all there is to them, though! The most significant part of both stories is the development of the drivers, both in their racing skills and their continuing life experiences.

The racing is fantastic and extreme, but always within the bounds of possibility. The character development is constantly ongoing and the close friends and associates of the main character have surprisingly large roles to play.

Both are high quality anime featuring drivers of the youngest age possible and you get to watch them develop into the fastest drivers around. Excellent stuff!

Initial D and Capeta have awesome racing, great speed, and drivers who aim to be the best in their own style of racing. Initial D involves downhill and uphill mountain racing, and Capeta is about kart racing and F1 cars.

The uncanny resemblance between Capeta and Initial D is hard to miss; even more so once you watch them. While the characters and settings are different, the general concept remains.

Capeta and Initial D have one very obvious similarity: they are both anime about racing. Yet the similarities aren't only that shallow. The tads of humor and the unprofessional start of the main character are great examples of why these two should be recommended for each other. Both also give a sufficient amount of technical information, which give the car maniacs something extra as well.

Hajime no Ippo: The Fighting!

Hajime no Ippo: The Fighting!

Ippo Makunouchi is a loser. He has no friends, he spends his free time helping his mom with work, and he's constantly being beaten up by bullies. But that all changes when one day he's saved from another beating by Takamura, an up-and-coming boxer. Soon, Ippo turns his life around with a passion for the newly discovered sport, but his new lifestyle is far from easy! Before he can even dream of becoming champion, he'll have to overcome a slew of fierce rivals and learn what 'dedication' really means.

Capeta and Hajime are a few of the true sports anime out there. Both starts off with a very normal young boy with no special talent, but with a stroke of luck, a new world is unveiled where the boy's true talents begin to shine. If you liked one, you will not be disappointed with the other.

Hajime no Ippo and Capeta are two of the best sports anime. What's more is that they both move outside of the sports world and show some of the issues they have to overcome in their personal life (more so in Capeta). Both use a lot of technical terms and explain the mechanics of how things work even for people new to the sports. Lastly they each use a nice way to show the battles, making them very enjoyable to watch!

it's hard to describe the feeling these two anime put forth. I'm no orator,  so you'll have to watch them both to see from my perspective. I was recommended Hajime a couple years ago and loved it.  I ended up watching Capeta during a phase where I chose from my 'want to watch'  list at random.  they are eerily similar.  if you're having trouble getting hooked on Capeta,  be aware that there is a time skip around episode ten.

Both animes are about racing and explain a lot about cars, driving techniques and that world. I consider Arrow Emblem way better than Capeta, although is very old. I just couldn't relate to how much of a loser was Capeta out of the car/kart.

Speed Racer

Speed Racer

Speed Racer drives the fabulous Mach 5 in race after race, although the prize money isn't his true goal: he seeks to be the best racer in the world, and to defeat the mysterious Racer X (not knowing that Racer X is actually his long lost older brother, Rex Racer)! The races don't take place upon the boring circular tracks that one might expect; instead, they tend to involve the countryside, and rough and dangerous terrain. This is where the Mach 5's special features, such as super traction tires and jumping struts come in very handy. Speed must also deal with villains ranging from unscrupulous racers to thieves and spies, but he has the help of Trixie, his little brother Spridle, and the pet monkey ChimChim along the way.
