Both shows are sports related and share very similar themes. For example, both teams in each respective show has to overcome a barrier of sorts in order to prove their worth not only to their rivals (and other people who look down on them) but also to themselves. Additionally, the characters' personalities are very similar in both shows. Given this, I would say Haikyuu!! spends a significant more time building drama.
Even tho Prince of stride has only 2-12 (now 16/02/2016) episodes this new series are full of energy just as Haikyuu!! You inmeadiatly will love this anime and you will want to watch the next episode to see what will happen just as in Haikyuu!!
The two main characters in Prince of Stride resemble a lot the main characters of Haikyuu!! But oh well if you wanna find out WATCH IT!!!!
2nd Season of Diamond no Ace and Haikyuu!!
Both are similiar. The main character is interesting.
Both are very funny and entertaining.
Both have good character development.
Both are realistic, well this is shounen so there will be some unique abilities.
But the abilities is not supernatural-like, so you still can tolerate it.
If you like Diamond no Ace, you will like Haikyuu!! as well
They're quite similar because of the atmosphere it's giving, calm, friendly and sometimes tense.
-Sports of course but Basketball
-Comedy and puns, different character personality
-There's also challenges they have to face, it does not focus entirely on being an overpowered team
-Main character is also small c;
Both are sports anime - Kuroko is about basketball and Haikyuu is about volleyball. Similar flow, progression, and theme. Produced by the same studio, which gives them both fluid and quality animation. Matches are really intense and gripping for both animes.
Chihayafuru and Haikyuu!! are both great sport anime that maintain high tension throughout the episodes and seasons. They both make you cheer for the teams that strive for victory. The emphasis on teamwork and little friendship dramas are similar too.
While Haikyuu!! has more of a comedic style, Chihayafuru has a little bit more romantic elements.
The team evolves and works togethor to overcome the enemy teams. You become emotionally attached to the characters because of their effort. The enemies are quite likeable too. If you liked Diamond no ace you will probably like haikyuu.
Watch the 1st season first , it didn't let me recommend the 1st season.
