Kuroko's Basketball

Kuroko's Basketball

They were known as the 'Generation of Miracles' – five basketball prodigies who helped lead Teiko Middle School's basketball team to glory, defeating anyone who got in their way. But a mysterious rumor tells of a sixth, a phantom player who the five prodigies respected greatly. That boy is Tetsuya Kuroko, a freshman at Seirin High and the newest member...

Will be as simple as possible. In my opinion even if they do have differences they both make for a great basketball anime with twist and plays that will make you want to see what will happen next

Kuroko no Basuke (KnB) and Slam Dunk (SD) are similar in many ways. Both animes are about a basketball team, that is slowly making its way to the top of Japan. Main character of SD - Sakuragi can be compared to Kagami (both are red headed, playing same position and even both are quite stupid). SD is very slow-paced (after 101 episodes it ends nearly at the same point as first season of KnB). KnB is more "shonen" like anime (characters have some unique powers, even though they are mostly based on reality), which SD lacks. KnB is based on friendship of two main characters, SD is based on rivalry between the two.

I have personally seen KnB first, so SD looked quite outdated, but if you dont care, you will probably like it.

Both are great at combining basketball thrills and great comedy as well as memorable characters you can't help but cheer on.

Eyeshield 21

Eyeshield 21

Sena was always a weak child, constantly having to run away from bullies; so much, that he became good at it. Now, as a teenager, Sena’s skill at running has become so impressive that the diabolical mastermind of the school football team notices his talent and recruits him. Yet to keep his privacy intact and his dangerous hobby a secret from his...

Both Slam Dunk and Eyeshield are really funny. In an unexpected place - especially in a near-losing game - the main characters end up doing something funny that will make you laugh. Both anime get you really interested in their respective sports, and show the determination and trust needed by each member of a team in order to win a game.

Wetbeard Wetbeard says

The main characters in both anime start to play American Football and Basketball, respectively, even though they know nothing about their respective sports nor do they like them. The difference is that, in Slam Dunk, Sakuragi wants to impress Haruko, while in  Eyeshield 21, Sena is forced by Hiruma to play.

BlackThorne BlackThorne says

Well, plot is very similar, as it is at almost every sport anime, but there are more than that. They have so much in common. There are older players, who have only this last year to achieve their dream - to be the best team. There are newbies, who are incredibly good and are improving at incredibly fast rate. There are deliquents and idiots too. And all of them have strong will to help the team at all cost... And of course the feeling is also very similar, both of them have comedy elements in it (of course, that slam dunk is old fashion wave) and yeah, there's that anoying thing when can be so much time spend in just about one second of game, sometimes it's irritating, but if you overcome it, you can enjoy really great and pleasant show.

Prince of Tennis

Prince of Tennis

Meet Ryoma Echizen, the cocky prince of tennis. He comes to Japan from America where he is known as the Prince of Tennis – but that is no surprise considering he is the son of the former tennis pro, Nanjiroh Echizen, otherwise known as the Samurai! Upon transferring to the school Seishun Gakuen, he meets the regulars of the tennis club, and becomes the...

These are both really long running sports series, that as i understand it, were insanely popular in japan at the tim (well, PoT is still running...) and the layout is the same, with long drawn out battles with ever stronger opponents on the way to the national championship! however, imho slam dunk pulls off the main characters romance much better, so take this less well known but awesome anime for a spin.
rinnei rinnei says

Both Slam Dunk and Prince of Tennis are obviously about sports.  Both anime are really funny and show the determination needed for their respective teams to be the best.

shinigamidono shinigamidono says

Both anime basically involve the main character training and participating in game after game as the peanut gallery cheers, watches in amazement, and comments of everything.
