While the sports for these two anime are different they show the hardships of working on a team and trying to succeeded in said sport. While one may be more tragic or less hinted than the other there are relationships that develop within these anime. Both also are 20 episodes +.

Both are animes that revolve around Basketball. The protagonists however differ greatly as Kuroko is seen as relatively talentless were it for not his pass abilities where as Aikawa as seen a genius and ace. Both of the schools they attend however have a wavering basketbal club that has little to no reputation. Thus the classic fight of the underdog is a clear theme in both animes.

dear boys similar to prince of tennis, b/c they are both based on sports, and they have the same competitive work hard spirit. in dear boys the sport is basketball, but like in prince of tennis it has the character building in the premise of the story. if you like prince of tennis you will like dear boys.

Both are about sports and similar animation. They deal with the difficulties they face from trying to achieve their goals. For anyone who enjoys watching basketball, track, or any fast pace competitive sports, or just simply high school life with some romance mixed in, they're both awesome and definitely recommenced.

Both series' female characters are also dominant on the field and often tries their best to succeed as well. There is comedy, drama, and a little romance thrown in some episodes for these series. Additionally, both series features past events that sometimes affects the way games go. In essence,  read more
