A tale chronicling the life of a fighter. Both series revolves around a main character who sets foot into a world where he meets adversaries who truly tests the limits of their abilities in fighting. They face struggles both physically and internally but is able to adapt. Throughout both series, they prove their worth as an underdog who slow climbs their way to the top and earns the respect of their rivals. Expect high doses of action inside the ring with intensity.

zumou is essentially a shonen version of (seinen) shamo. while zumou is a lot less edgy, both have very visceral fight scenes, cool looking art, and similar subject matter, sumo and martial arts. shamo is a lot less of a sports anime but it does feel like a natural transition going from zumou to shamo

Both series adapts martial arts although they take place in different time periods/settings. In essence, the main male character gets involved with other characters that challenges their skills to the limits. Rivalries are established while grudges are also built. There is a decent amount of violence in both series to also illustrate the reality of martial arts. Just be aware that Yukikaze's story also deals with themes of revenge while Hinmaru-Zumou is more of a sports competition.

Both male protagonists aim to become the best in there respective sport. They say looks are deceiving and the same can be said for both characters in these manga's, the two lead characters look weak but are very strong and gifted at what they do. Flaunt the fruits of your labor, another famous saying that shows the exposition of what the protagonists put into all their hours of training, which is brought to light in critical moments of the story.
