Uh, is quite simple actually:
- One Outs and Giant Killing are quite similar because first of all they are both seinen with a main focus on the sports genre.
- moreover, both deal with a professional sports: not the usual sports played by teenagers as you usually see in anime the most of times.
- having adult characters overall both of the series, they also have a different way to tell the story, making it quite interesting as they both show you sides of the professional sports that you rarely see in anime.
- still, both main characters give to their serie an overall quite strong psychological theme, because they rely everything on strategy and on the teamwork. Despite Tatsumi (for GK) doesn't play on the court, as you would normally expect it from a sports anime, while Tokuchi (for One Outs) is a player of the team, they still can have brilliant minds and somewhat similar personality anyway.
Psychological anime can be addicting because you are always looking for the next strategy of the main chara in order to aim to the victory.. and well, with both series you might probably get this feeling!
Both recommended! They are quite unique sports-genre series!
Both are about sport and the main characters are very similar. The plot is pretty similar too, although Tatsumi (Giant Killing) is not actually playing on the field.
Both anime show the strategic approach towards sports. However One outs is all about strategy while Giant Killing is a mix of all aspects of the sport.
both animes consider a psychological side beside the sports main side.
great stories and similar attractive characters.
Giant Killing is like One Outs, because, both of them tell the story of very inteligent and presumptuous, and devilish men. And .. both of them are about of sports.
Anime about sports of masses
Both main characters are kind of genius in their respective sport, even though Tatsumi is not as "agressive" as Tokuchi could be.
Both main characters also greatly enjoy defeating their opponent xD
Both anime don’t consider sports only, but great part of psychology.
Tatsumi has another goal than Toua, his intrigues don’t suit his own ends only, but the means used by main characters are very similar.
Both of these Anime are about soccer. Both Anime have rather detailed drawing styles, one more so then the other.
Both Area no Kishi and Giant Killing deal with soccer. However Giant Killing is told through the perspective of the coach, Tatsumi Takeshi, whereas Area no Kishi follows the journey of an up an coming player, Aizawa Kakeru. If you enjoyed Area no Kishi than I highly recommend, Giant Killing. Both funny and suspenseful, it will keep you entertained throughout.
Giant Killing is also an anime about a guy who hasn't been very good at soccer
Both anime are about reviving a team
A new coach takes over for the school in both anime
The main character is athletic, but doesn't have polished skills in both
As I was watching Major S2, Goro's arrogance[confidence(?)] reminded me a lot of Tatsumi. I kept comparing the two characters. They both also have the determination to fight from the bottom and become the best.
They are also both enjoy sports anime.
Want to see an underdog team rise to the top? Want to see more conniving strategies thought up to help the underdog team win? Want to see that underdog team perform a "giant killing"? Well then Eyeshield 21 and Giant Killing are one in the same in pretty much everything... except for the sport(and other such details) that is haha
Both of these shows are sport animes. In both shows, there are characters who are underestimated at first, but show extreme skill later as they develop. Also, both series include tense sport scenes with shots/goals.
It's hard to compare Giant Killing with any other football related anime because they almost play real football. There is no jumping 20 feet in the air or the ball is not on fire when the player makes a free kick etc...
So i think Kaiji is similar in more way's that one.
Both anime's are about a game, and while Giant Killing is a team play Kaiji from Kaiji makes sure that he has teammates when he plays the games he is forced. So Kaiji is more darker anime but the two main protagonist from these anime's are very similar, they smart and analyzing all little details to makes sure they win! Giant Killing has it's funny side and it's more relaxed from Kaiji. But the art is also quite similar and the music in both anime's are WIN!
Fantastic character studies masquerading as sports series! Both series do devote a good deal of time to matches and games, but the real attraction here is the great sense of pacing and a well-developed cast of characters. Cross Game is more leisurely and romantically inclined, while Giant Killing is more bombastic (and has a lovely musical score~). You don't need to know much about the respective sports to enjoy these shows!
