The art style and overall vibe is very similar.

The Overall vibe is pretty similar. Both shows have that futuristic junk feel to them, plus The Mc personalities are quite similar.

Both boxing anime, striving to be the best at what they do.

A virtually identical premise (a contestant that wants to leave the world of rigged-up matches in order to pursue his search for glory) is the first thing that links these two impressive works, alongside an extremely likable character, a futuristic setting and their shared dream to win the biggest, most important tournament they'll ever join. Both are love letters to both the sports genre and the coming-of-age subgenre, where your favorite lowest common denominator (JP in Redline, JD in Megalo Box) fights against the odds and many opponents in order to become someone and accomplish his dreams.

Both our main leads are quite similar in their personality, both being an underdog and a hothead, although Yabuki Joe is more spunky and wild. Focusing on the drama built around the characters, showcasing epic boxing matches and on top of all being thrilling, Ashita no Joe and Megalo Box make you invested in their charismatic cast quite quickly.

The premise of a future with a highly advanced technological society is present in both. The main characters also deal with alot of internal strife and encounter many battles. They are both beautifully animated and have great soundtracks. If you liked one then the other is a great choice to see next!

Their world and main protagonists are very similar. Even the way that the characters talk about the plot devices and set up the stakes are very similar. If you're looking for a sillier, shounen version of this series that goes in all kinds of crazy directions after the tournament, then this is what you're looking for.

The MC Joe and Kazuma remind me of each other. They both are outcasts trying to make a living by what they are best at, fighting. They live in the "slums" and are not considered "citizens". Their personalities are similar in that they have fighters spirits and are also kind. They both live how they like to and by their own beliefs. They are also both very talented in the art of combat and show a lot of promise. They are set in the "future" where "technology" is heavily relied upon. The rivalries between the MCs is similar as well. If you like one give  read more

Both are short sports anime that do something a bit different than your average sport anime that non-sport anime fans could easily get into.

I'll start by saying they're both sports anime and they both have a futuristic vibe to them. The fight scenes in both leave you wanting more each time and although Megalo Box is more dystopian while Air Gear is more comedic, both of the main characters essentially are trying to gain reputation and reach the top. If you liked Megalo or Air Gear, I'd try checking out the other show next.
