Baseball's the most popular sport in Japan, so it's no mystery to see several baseball anime/manga making their way around~ Oofuri is a lot more fluffy than Battery, as the main in Battery is abused by his team mates, and is constantly told that he's not good enough. Oofuri has nearly all the characters telling him that he can do it.

Both shows have similar vibes, they both have a gloomy kid who gets invited to join the sport team that is weak. and have other similarities, one is about baseball and the other is about soft tennis though.

Baseball Sports anime where characters are trying to overcome others and further their own skills in the process. Slice of elements are similar as both have a visable progression with their characters.

besides from both being baseball animes, the mc in both of them seem to have this type of personality where they are good on what they do but still miss something important about baseball wich is to love it..... then their relationship with other people slowly make them change and enjoy what they do

report Recommended by Alyssuhsama
they are both baseball anime that not only focus on the sport, but in how the relationship of the mc with the people around him evolve.

Both are about people playing baseball, while the Major series focuses on the MC's entire life, they're both about pitchers that are the best in their league. Catchers in both series also struggle to catch the pitches sometimes.

Elementary school kids (and very old people) are more or less given free reign to so whatever they please in society, but not so for others. Battery and Wandering Son are about the children who are facing that fact in a restrictive and largely socially conservative Japan, all whilst taking their first step into puberty and middle school life. Despite the difference and the fact that Battery on the surface seems to be about baseball, both are actually keenly observant shows about kids learning about what society expects of them, developing their identities, and figuring how to fit that into what others expect of them.  read more

Both are a bit slow paced and about the struggles of making friends, figuring out yourself, and the forming bonds between teammates in sport. Both have young boys as protagonists and side characters and there is a focus on emotions. 
report Recommended by Lopika
Two anime from the same studio, based on light novels from the last decade and which were also both adapted into two very obscure manga and live action movies, one year apart from eachother. I may be wrong but I think they're also from the same author. Both have lots of corny teen drama, and are really just soap opera in anime form.

Drama, baseball, and love for the game all meshed together to form a melodramatic vibe. 
report Recommended by DollFishu
Both are slow paced sports anime with a focus on friendship, struggling to bond with teammates and realizing why one does the sport he chose as a little kid. The best friend pair of the main characters and how their friendship works is similar too. 
report Recommended by Lopika
- Set in a small village in the country side, with lots of nice details of country life and different accents/dialects (Okayama for Battery and Gotou islands for Barakamon). - Prickly and ill-mannered, but ultimately talented protagonist (Barakamon details the events directly after such a person's fall from grace, whereas Battery is about the start of their pursuing their activity of choice). - Small child actually voice by a small child! Barakamon is a warm, fuzzy, feel-good sort of show with plenty of funny and cute moments despite the drama; whereas Battery is very heavy and makes for uncomfortable viewing at times because it doesn't gloss over flaws.  read more
