Oofuri and Haikyuu both have main characters who have unique abilities that can surprise opponents despite their silly and weak appearances.
There's also a bond between the two teammates that develops overtime through compromise and overcoming each other's strengths & weakness. (Like Mihashi & Abe's battery, and Hinata & Kageyama's Setter and Spiker teamplay) If you enjoy a light hearted sports anime then you'll love both of these!
They are both sports animes.
Ookiku Furikabutte (Oofuri) is about baseball and Haikyuu!! is about volleyball.
Shouyou from Haikyuu reminds me a bit of Mihashi from Oofuri.
They both trained a lot to get better and they also both have a huge handicap. for Shou it's his small height and for Mihashi his low self-esteem.
Still these boys are eager to win for sure and refuse to give up!
Only have watched the first aired episode of Haikyuu but I can already feel that I will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed watching Oofuri.
And I think it's totally worth checking out both if you like sports anime and if you like adorable dorks with their own abilities!
- both are similar in sports (except one is baseball, the other is volleyball)
- main characters => orange hair
- both main character want to achieve a goal
- both main character are funny and silly
- difference in Ookiku Furikabutte main character has a low self esteem aspect on viewing things, but with a little support he gets into the game and in Haikyuu!! the main character has a positive mind on viewing things and set his mind striaght that they haven't lost just yet.
- both main characters practice their hardest on their own time especially if they were on their own.
- have a rival they look up to
well idk what else to say i'm looking forward for the rest of the series because this anime does remind me of Ookiku Furikabutte XD
The teamplay between the two main characters is very similar, as well as the attitude of Kageyama and Abe towards Hinata and Mihashi.
Plus, the animation is also similar.
Both are sports anime. Both give off a feeling of happiness, and a love for the sport they are playing.
Both have a main character who is good at what they do, but amazing when put with a pitcher/setter.
An unlikely duo trying to do their best in order to overcome their weaknesses and bring out the best in their teams. Both shows have a similar cast which share various humorous conversations. Either through hard work and practice or with talent, the characters are overcoming their obstacles one by one in order to achieve their dreams. That, of course, doesn't mean there aren't any bumps in the road. Haikyuu!! focuses more on the real aspects of sports, while Kuroko no Basket focuses on the suspenseful, which makes it seem over the top quite a few times.
both sports anime made by Production I.G. revolving around hand based sports with small 5-6 man teams. similar atmosphere and focus for both is on bond between 2 highschool first year MC's where one supports the other to score with their impressive jumping ability.
Both awesome sports anime about unlikely talents, teaming up with someone very talented, to make a successful team.
Both made by Production I.G.
Both have two strong players join the same team.
Though both are different sports, they have the same atmosphere.
Both protagonists aim for victory and are highly motivated.
The story lines themselves are totally different, but if you enjoy sports anime or liked Kuroko no Basket, then you will definitely enjoy Haikyuu. Both have really strong and likeable characters then have a 'never give up' attitude and the matches themselves will leave you on the edge of your seat.
