Another one of your generic sports anime, but about swimming! Lots of ab fanservice so there's a warning. If you like anime like Haikyuu!! Or Kuroko's Basketball you might enjoy Free!~!

GemJewel GemJewel says...

Both are anime are focused on High School team sports where the main characters band together to improve themselves and face their opponents as best they can. In each, members that want the club are tasked with finding others to join and convince them to do so via a race.

Prince of Stride is the new series about sport and a lot of bishonen. But Free was so perfect, with all the caracteristics of Prince of Stride, with better direction, animation, scenario and characters. If you like Prince of Stride, you will really really really like Free.

Both shows are sports anime, but it's more than that. The friendly but intense competition between athletes is beautiful in an emotional way. The animation quality is on par with each other. Two characters are very similar to each other, Haruka Nanase  (Free!) and Takeru Fujiwara (Prince of Stride). Both are serious and emotional but also hilarious and full of comedic relief when necessary.

PotatoFlake PotatoFlake says...

They share some similarities that make rather identical... some of them are:

-they are short animes with only 12 episodes

-both plots are about a washed-up high school sports club (that was known as it's best club within said sport) that gets renewed/revived and makes it great again within said sport

-character designs. For instance they both got a boy that would do great within cross-dressing, a stoic and a guy that seems rather happy-go-lucky at first glance

One of the differences however, is the fan servive. You liked "Prince of Stride" but want more abs, swimming and less clothes? Go watch "Free!" Liked "Free!" but want less focus on fan service and more running? Go watch "Prince of Stride"

They both are sports animes, they have the general slice of life concept, the main characters have the same emotional struggles with their sport, AND YOU WILL SHIP LITERALLY EVERYTHING.

First off, it's a sports anime, so it's automatically in the same catagory. But the main characters of Prince of Stride reminded me so much of Hinata and Kageyama in the first episode, that I had to make a recommendation after watching the first episode.I can already guarantee that this anime will be a 10/10 for me. So if you like Haikyuu! you should try this show out and see if you like it!

Both are High School team sports where the main characters band together to improve themselves and face their opponents as best they can. It doesn't hurt that the two first years in both anime have some similar personality traits.

It's a great anime, and the main characters are all very attractive, athletic young men. 

The series is about an extreme form of sport known as "Stride." It involves 6 players on a team that runs relay races in towns. The story takes place at Honan Academy where first year high school students Takeru Fujiwara and Nana Sakurai try to recruit members for their "Stride" club. They request Riku Yagami to join with the help of Takeru and Nana. Their goal is to compete and win the "End of Summer," a top competition hosted in Japan alongside other schools.

Those two animes are kind of the same, in both of them stories are built up around sports. Characters show their passion for sports and the way its motivation is enhanced by its team mates support.

You'll enjoy watching the way they fight for the sake of the teams, and how trust relationships grow among them, showing how important team work is and its impact on day life. 

Internal battles, self-confidence problems, tough rivals, funny moments,handsome muscled up guys... you won't miss any of this in these two animes. You'll even find the same relationships patterns, furthermore,each character in free has its personality analogous in prince of stride in some way. If you enjoyed one of them , you'll enjoy the other as well.

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.

Both are about guys striving to form or reform an athletic team and ending up with some unlikely teammates who may not seem cut out for it at first. Through ups and downs, they work hard through internal conflicts, disagreements, and any other problems that try to stop them. They have some similar character types too.
