The same sport themed anime where the setting is in summer and the girls were in their sexiest attire.

All-female sports drama, with very revealing clothes but still a serious tone

Want to enjoy more anime girls in swimsuit? Both are female sports anime where the characters wear swimsuits most of the time. Harukana Receive is based on a real sport (volleyball) while Keijo is based on a fictional sport. Another difference is that Keijo has a huge cast of women, while Harukana focuses on a small cast of cute girls. Also no guys in both anime :) Warning: Keijo!!!!!!!!!!!! is a lot more absurd and ecchi than Harukana Receive.

What the 2 have in common???? Volley Ball, characters who wanna be the best and a lotta drama. What the differ from???? One has hot bodies in a beach with the usual swimsuit fanservice while the other one doesn't . One was more of a double tag team of baech valley ball while the other was more of a usual team kind of volley ball. And Mikasa was the endorser.

Ballroom and Harukana in many ways similar to each other because of their study of psychology and the relationship between partners, and the use of heavy romantic metaphors for this. Both shows also have a realistic image of their sport and sibling's pair as side characters. The main difference is that Ballroom has a more serious tone and is focused on boy-girl pairings, while Harukana has a more entertaining style and a blatant yuri subtext with girl's pairings.

The themes maybe far different from each other. Harukana Receive is about beach volleyball with fanservice while Yuru Yuri is comedic CGDCT and school life. but they both have the similar format. at least 99% of the population in the anime is (good-looking) females. and yes, there is GL subtext too.

-Both talks about sports obviously. -Both starts with 2 people meeting then later was involve in a club. -Both plot focuses on tournaments. -Both talks about the importance of friendships in sports -(my personal opinion) both designed for extroverted individuals -both has idol archetypes as well as friendly rivalry with another team. -At least one of the main casts has some sort of troubled past.

Dissmilarites: One was mostly involves hot bodies while the other involves external settings. One has the usual swimsuit service while the other has panty service.

Similarites: The same summer setting. Beaches Swimsuits and Hot bodies. Dissimilarites: One is pure comedy while the other was more of a slice of life. Hot bodies in HR involves cute girls, while in GB it also inculdes guys in their birthday suits. One was more of a sports thing, while the other was more like a college life.

Sports animes that have very cute and hot girls doing exercises that also have educational situations in teaching the intricates of the exercises/sport being shown in the series. Dumbbell is focused only on gym training and the correct way to doing that training to avoid injuries, it also presents a lot of tips to doing simple exercises without spending too much money. Harukana is rather centered on beach volley and the tactics/strategies the sport is played with more character development along the way. Both animes have comedic situations and very sexy situations without putting off the viewer at any moment. Highly recommended to people who like CGDCT  read more
