SynopsisIde Nobuhisa has always been a boy full of vitality and a young promise in the field of track running. However one day after a competition, he stumbled over the pretiest pair of legs he had ever seen! Their owner, a young girl practicing tennis makes a promise with Ide that she will teach him how to play. After seeing the name tag on her racket bag, Ide puts all his efforts into passing the test for accessing the same high school she goes to, Makunogama. In his first days in his new high school, Ide discovers two things: an old friend of his is also attending, and nobody knows of a girl with the name he saw on the tag! He and his friend join the school tennis club, where they meet another first year, Takita Louis (Ruui), a very good tennis player with a little of an attitude problem.
However things start to look better for Ide when his dear missing girl appears in the school! As it happens, he misread her name on the tag. Takada Hinako was well known as one of the members of the tennis club, but some time after meeting Ide for the first time she suffered an accident and has now lost the use of her left leg. Hinako is no longer a happy spirited girl and tells Ide she can't fullfill her promise.
Eventually the opposite characters of Louis and Ide end up confronting each other in a tennis match. Ide is an incredible fast learner, but he is no match... until Hinako decides to give him advice. Things only get worse, however, when their club president decides to put Louis and Ide as a doubles pair for the upcoming inter-highschool tournament! (Source: M-U)

Both deal with someone new starting tennis. Each has their strengths, in Baby Steps its his eyes and his attention to detail in Shanimuni GO its his endurance and raw talent. While the characters are almost opposite they both love tennis and there is also a female love interest who also loves tennis.
Both (main characters) begin to play the sport because they were enchanted by a talented girl's playing style. They start out weak but show a lot of potential. After losing to a famous player, they decide to take the sport seriously. They partner up with the person they lost to and win many games in tournaments. They both vow to become stronger and challenge the world at a national level.
Both Ide and Ryoma are geniuses. Although in Ide's case, he only recently started playing tennis. Together, with their teams, they join competitions. Prince of Tennis focuses only on tennis. Shanimuni GO, on the other hand, has a bit of romance.
