even though kendo and mahjong are completely different things,the story is kinda the same in my opinion..
-a group of girls
-the rest of the club are unwanted boy/s xD
-has a really skilled girl and probably the only one you're expecting to go far..
-some of the people who they go up against will eventually be surprised when they try to make a move to defeat them..
if u try and watch them, its really funny and you'll enjoy it! ^^
Both have moe characters. Both have comedy in it, though Bamboo Blade has a lot more funny scenes than Saki. Both anime also revolve around a school club with just a few members in it (5 girls with a guy). So far, Bamboo Blade has better plot and has some conflicts in the story. However, Saki is just a new released anime so the second season might come out next year? But I think there is a high chance of Saki second season. Animation of both anime's done pretty well too.
Both are about school clubs that start off with a few people, but eventually get just enough people to compete in tournaments. Also both are based around the girls and the guys seem to be not that important. Reminds people that winning isn't everything, and to have fun.
A school based anime centered around a primarily female cast trying to do their best where their opponents are equally well developed characters as the main cast. These shows feel VERY similar, if you enjoyed one, you would probably enjoy the other.
Both series follows a club (made of mainly girls) who practice a sport that they enjoy in. They have a great time together and also has a slice of life feeling.
Both series takes place at a school life setting that is lighthearted yet contains a competitive atmosphere among students. Thus, the mood of both series are quite alike.
Both series' games contains a set of rules that the players must follow in order to win. That brings out some of the comedy, drama, and intensity of both series in various episodes.
Bamboo Blade and Saki feature a high school girls sports club that aims to win the national tournament. Despite focusing on different subjects, kendo and mahjong, there is development of the characters as they face numerous opponents and interact with each other through their daily lives. Special skills, talents and abilities also characterize the contenders in each title.
Stories about school sport clubs, mostly about girls.
Although bamboo blade is more slice-focused while Saki is more shouho-ai and supernatural-focused, they still remain quite the similar, especially mentioning that Saki spinoff was drawn by the same mangaka who drew bamboo blade.
Both are really cute sports anime about girls with a big part of slice of life in it.
Bamboo blade is about present time and Taishou Yakuu Musume is about 1920s years, but both are still pretty similar.
Obviously both anime are all about clubs and the members' passion in their club. Both have comedy, though K-on! is funnier (i think). However, Bamboo Blade have some slice of seriousness at times. Both clubs in the anime had the time where they were about to split up (where members starts not to show up in the clubroom). Bithe moe animes ^^
Both series takes place in a school setting involving a club of students doing activities. The club is ultimately formed after getting enough members in both anime(s) and from there, the fun begins.
There's plenty of comedy, drama, and that slice-of-life feeling.
Both series also has characters of contrasting personalities ranging from shy, energetic, to fiercely competitive.
They're both about school athletic teams who keep struggling into they find that one piece that puts their team together. in bamboo blade's case its tama joining the kendo club and in this its amuro joining the swim team.
Competition is a wonderful thing. It makes us strive to accomplish, strive to achieve. As such, both of these sports theme are something to keep an eye on. There is drama, comedy, and a storyline that anime fans of sports can enjoy.
Many people will probably see this as huge stretch since Bamboo Blade really isn't Magical type anime. The similarity lies in the two lead characters who are somewhat withdrawn and timid yet fiery and assertive when it comes to swordplay. While Shana is a mythical Flame Haze sent to regulate the balance of the spirit and physical world, Tamaki Kawazoe is a timid and innocent Kendo savant that is almost unbeatable on during a match. Both Tamaki and Shana both have to struggle to develop their maturing social lives and learn about the opposite sex. While there genre's are different other than the slice of life and comedy themes, I felt that both of these Animes possessed enough similarities to say that if you liked Bamboo Blade then you will probably like Shukugan no Shana. More so even then the second season of Shukugan no Shana which was filled with so much filler that I was getting angry by the sixth episode. read more
While not exactly similar genres, both protagonists are quite similar. Orion1 had some good points: "The similarity lies in the two lead characters who are somewhat withdrawn and timid yet fiery and assertive when it comes to swordplay. " and "Both Tamaki and Shana both have to struggle to develop their maturing social lives and learn about the opposite sex. " At least I enjoyed both anime to the fullest.
where as angelic layer is more on the cutesy side of things both of these shows have a turnament in which the main character must win or overcome. the stories are really good but with the longer shows the characters just have to keep fighting in more turnaments.
Both are comedies centering on a group of cute high school girls, yet (refreshingly) neither relies on sexy fanservice for its appeal, giving each a similarly lighthearted and simply charming atmosphere. The appeal comes straight from the quirky characters with their charming personalities, including some likable teacher characters for support. Beyond their humor, both also manage to deliver some heartwarming and relatable emotion in their latter halves.
They both had clubs,school life,comedy,friends,and slice of life.
They both have moe characters and art style.
They both have catchy music .
They are both underrated anime and deserve more popularity.
I enjoyed them both .
Differences: Bamboo Blade had sports and Kokoro Connect had Drama and gender benders .
Both of these shows feature a brand new girls' team centered around one fantastic player and lead by a total deadbeat of a coach. More than that, the shows have a very similar feel in terms of the struggles the teams face and the overall tone of optimism and friendship.
The activities may be different but the feelings are quite similar. In both series, there's a club involving a group of young girls doing an activity they enjoy in while excelling at them through practice, skill, and determination.
The main female character becomes focused in the club and makes both friends as well as rivals throughout the series.
The competition is fierce but at the same time, the characters often seems to have fun in a lighthearted atmosphere. There's comedy, drama, and some emotional factors later on as well.
On the surface, there is too much similarities but in both series, there is quite a lot I found in common.
Both series involves a group of characters participating in an activity from a school environment. There is that sense of competition and strive to succeed among each member of the teams.
The background is lighthearted and it takes practice to succeed for the characters. It is surprisingly realistic and portrays the activities they do in a more definite and profound way.
The main female characters from both series also share similar personalities.
To be exact, there is only one similarity that I can think of.
At first, both clubs had many members, but due to reasons, a lot of the club member left and both clubs had minimal members.
- Bamboo Blade: a member was a sadist that scared all of the members away and the seniors were studying for their exams
- Whistle!: Mizuno Tatsuya and Kazamatsuri Sho made a deal with the team captain that whoever won the match would be captain, but because the team captain loss and couldn't deal with Mizuno being captain, many members left
Somehow, both clubs manages to maintain enough members to compete and are aiming for the nationals. They're different, but you get the same feeling of determination from both animes read more
It is nostalgic, and shows how an intense love for a common goal (hobby or occupation) is never trivial. Bamboo Blade focuses on Kendo, Bartender focuses on drinks, but what is really looked at in both series are the stories that tie in with the event or drink.
So grasshopper you have watched Bamboo Blade but still require more comedic martial art action? Have you the discipline to watch a comedy that breaks the forth and possibly even the fifth wall? Are you prepared to deal with more girls kicking the crap out of men who seem to have trained in martial arts their whole lives? Then you are ready for Jubei-chan.
Both examine the progress of a club being set up with some new members. Comedy is similar and the character exploration is similar, although Sora no Manimani focuses more on the central characters than the whole cast.
The characters are slightly similar in their cuteness, as well as the plot. A club that is struggling to become real, to become strong. If you like Bamboo Blade, but want something that is about a different sort of club, Gakuen Utopia is your show.
Both series are about students enjoying their club activities. The main characters from the two series are both quiet and reflective, while the supporting characters are similarly wacky. Both series are funny as well.
