-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)

It’s not wrong to assume that Hanebado! was influenced by Ping Pong The Animation with how it puts the focus on characters and their solemn rediscovery of a forgotten passion. It goes more into exploring the many facets of the psychological elements of the characters which is rare in sports related anime.
