6 Anime Like Megalo Box
5. Casshern Sins
4. Yuri!!! On ICE
2. Samurai Champloo
1. Hajime no Ippo
Synopsis – A strange environmental phenomenon 22 years ago in the Kanazawa prefecture caused the land to split and protrude upwards reaching unprecedented heights, creating the secluded area known as The Lost Ground. Kazuma is a young mercenary who lives in the Lost Ground, looking for any work he can find to sustain his livelihood within the harsh environment. He is one of the few people that are gifted with the Alter ability, which allows him to plaster his right arm and torso with a metallic alloy. When this mercenary encounters HOLY, an order whose purpose is to suppress and capture what they call Native Alter Users, and one of the elite members of HOLY, Ryuho, an epic rivalry begins.
Similarity – The MC Joe and Kazuma remind me of each other. They both are outcasts trying to make a living by what they are best at, fighting. They live in the “slums” and are not considered “citizens”. Their personalities are similar in that they have fighters spirits and are also kind. They both live how they like to and by their own beliefs. They are also both very talented in the art of combat and show a lot of promise. They are set in the “future” where “technology” is heavily relied upon. The rivalries between the MCs is similar as well. If you like one give the other a watch.
5. Casshern Sins
Synopsis – In the distant future, where cyborgs and humans struggle to survive after the war which destroyed the world, a being in white suit awakens. His name is Casshern and he remembers nothing of his own past.
In barren and dark dystopian world, where every being alive seems to hate his existence and the evil from his past wants him dead, Casshern, haunted by the flashes of his past memories has to survive and figure out who or what exactly he is and how he got to where he is now. But he does not know that he might not like the horrible truth of the past, hidden deep inside his mind…
Similarity – The premise of a future with a highly advanced technological society is present in both. The main characters also deal with a lot of internal strife and encounter many battles. They are both beautifully animated and have great soundtracks. If you liked one then the other is a great choice to see next!
4. Yuri!!! On ICE
Synopsis – Reeling from his crushing defeat at the Grand Prix Finale, Yuuri Katsuki, once Japan’s most promising figure skater, returns to his family home to assess his options for the future. At age 23, Yuuri’s window for success in skating is closing rapidly, and his love of pork cutlets and aptitude for gaining weight are not helping either.
However, Yuuri finds himself in the spotlight when a video of him performing a routine previously executed by a five-time world champion, Victor Nikiforov, suddenly goes viral. In fact, Victor himself abruptly appears at Yuuri’s house and offers to be his mentor. As one of his biggest fans, Yuuri eagerly accepts, kicking off his journey to make it back onto the world stage. But the competition is fierce, as the rising star from Russia, Yuri Plisetsky, is relentlessly determined to defeat Yuuri and win back Victor’s tutelage.
Similarity – Both are short sports anime that do something a bit different than your average sports anime that non-sport anime fans could easily get into.
Synopsis – Every five years, an exhilarating race called Redline is held, and the universe’s most anticipated competition has only one rule: that there are none. Racers are pushed to their absolute limit—a feeling that daredevil driver JP knows all too well. Having just qualified to participate in Redline, he is eager to battle against the other highly skilled drivers, particularly the beautiful rising star and the only other human that qualified, Sonoshee McLaren.
But this year’s Redline may be far more dangerous than usual—it has been announced to take place on the planet Roboworld with its trigger-happy military and criminals who look to turn the race to their own advantage. However, the potential danger doesn’t stop the racers; in fact, it only adds to the thrill. Relying solely on his vehicle’s speed, JP prepares for the event to come, aiming to take first place in the biggest race of his life.
Similarity – A virtually identical premise (a contestant that wants to leave the world of rigged-up matches in order to pursue his search for glory) is the first thing that links these two impressive works, alongside an extremely likable character, a futuristic setting and their shared dream to win the biggest, most important tournament they’ll ever join.
2. Samurai Champloo
Synopsis – Fuu Kasumi is a young and clumsy waitress who spends her days peacefully working in a small teahouse. That is until she accidentally spills a drink all over one of her customers! With a group of samurai now incessantly harassing her, Fuu desperately calls upon another samurai in the shop, Mugen, who quickly defeats them with his wild fighting technique, utilizing movements reminiscent to that of breakdancing. Unfortunately, Mugen decides to pick a fight with the unwilling ronin Jin, who wields a more precise and traditional style of sword fighting, and the latter proves to be a formidable opponent. The only problem is, they end up destroying the entire shop as well as accidentally killing the local magistrate’s son.
Similarity – Both original
Both good first episode show
Both have kind of similar art style and animation
Have great hip hop like ost
Both have some great action scene
The main character loves to fight no matter what consequences happen to them
1. Hajime no Ippo (Fighting Spirit)
Synopsis – Makunouchi Ippo has been bullied his entire life. Constantly running errands and being beaten up by his classmates, Ippo has always dreamed of changing himself but never has the passion to act upon it. One day, in the midst of yet another bullying, Ippo is saved by Takamura Mamoru, who happens to be a boxer. Ippo faints from his injuries and is brought to the Kamogawa boxing gym to recover. As he regains consciousness, he is awed and amazed at his new surroundings in the gym, though lacks the confidence to attempt anything. Takamura places a photo of Ippo’s classmate on a punching bag and forces him to punch it. It is only then that Ippo feels something stir inside him and eventually asks Takamura to train him in boxing. Thinking that Ippo does not have what it takes, Takamura gives him a task deemed impossible and gives him a one-week time limit. With a sudden desire to get stronger, for himself and his hard working mother, Ippo trains relentlessly to accomplish the task within the time limit. Thus Ippo’s journey to the top of the boxing world begins.
Similarity – Better than AnJ and Megalo Box for pure badassery and all around greatness. Both boxing anime, striving to be the best at what they do.
