Megalo Box, Carole & Tuesday Recommendations
Besides one huge difference that Carole & Tuesday is an anime about music and Megalo Box is about fighting, there are a lot of similar things between them. The available technology that main characters choose not to use, the journey from nothing and poverty to the top, people that help them get to the top, the amazing quality and execution of the anime itself. I think there are and will be a lot more similarities but there is one thing I'm certain about - both of them are worth your time.
Both have the same story plot where it was set in a world were things were done that involves advance technology and certain characters who wants to break the stereotype that such things could still be done the old fashion way.
Set in a world that's a little like ours, but with advancements that are clear, C&T and Megalo Box present characters who start from close to nowhere and drive their way to the top. It's no fun and games all the time, however, as both execute their atmosphere strongly to give you a taste of realistic standards and practices these industries are doing. Whether that be cheating the system or suppressing a particular competition, all dark sides are revealed in both.
They are vastly different stories in terms of genre, but they both label industries in the same way and people trying to reach the top
