Red-blooded sports anime with a similar dynamic between the two leads: rivals who end up on the same team.

Similar in Hanebado!, both MCs decide not to play their respective sport after a traumatic event. However, they come back to playing their sport after their friends and other supporting members help them recover/motivate them back to their original dreams. Both MCs are also good at their sports prior. -Sports -Traumatic event in the past -Friendship

They are both character driven, and mainly girls in the cast. They both center around friends helping eachother reaching a goal and overcoming obstacles together.

-Pretty intense and dramatic (moreso with Hanebad!) for a sports anime -Both anime feature sports with a net and a racket (Hanebad! focuses on badminton while Ping Pong obviously focuses on table tennis) -Both protagonists have similar traits and personalities (Peco = Ayano, Smile = Aragaki)

Badminton and table tennis are two sports that are very similar to tennis. One sport you use a racket to hit a shuttlecock instead of a ball, while the other sport is a bit smaller scale than tennis; but the idea of both sports is the same. The main characters are two cute girls who just went to their new schools and are very talented at their respective sports and beat all their seniors at the school club. Both girls join the club and participate at various tournaments with other schools. If you like cute girls so should watch both anime because there are plenty  read more

Both shows are about girl teams trying to support eachother and winning a competition together. (One is about an orchestra and the other a badminton team)

Both Sport. Both Sports are very similar Both have protagonist reaching to be top of the world players. The stories do not take a similar path, so when watching another it does not feel like a repeat with a different theme, they radiate a different feeling.
