It never gets old !! Even for an anime from 1989, set in Tokyo 1986, this is an old school sensational piece of work. The story is based in the manga from the famous Naoki Urasawa, and it is one of the best sold seinens in the history of Japan, almost 39 milion copies. Oddly enough it is a very unknowkn anime outside Japan, and it has never been dubbed to english, nor spanish.... love the main character, the story, the and the good mix of comedy, drama, romance, sport.... Definitevely, one of my favourites old school animes. 10/10

This is the whole plot of this anime. It is said in the description on read more

Both series have the same comedic feeling, although Yawara tend to be more serious.
A brazen white haired grandfather who trains and constantly criticizes a grandchild to do something that the kid doesn't really want to do in the first place, at least not at first.

Other than that, completely different.
