Asu no Yoichi! is a short running, harem, action comedy, whilst Kenshin is long running epic tale following a serious plot (with the odd comic moments). The basic elements, stuff you'll notice in each episode from the start, are the same: - traveling samurai deos the odd few freelance rescues - teenage girl, who's somewhat of a fighter living in a dojo, takes a shin to him - he moves in with this girl; becoming her underling as she's head of the house - dispite the fact that he's the all powerful hero, he always falls victum to tsundere tantrums

They are both about an extremely skilled swordsman staying at a dojo that is taught by a young female. Kenshin and Yoichi both: -Wield a blade that doesn´t kill -Are extremely powerful -Are very honest swordsman -Are both very clumsy which leads to funny situations There are even some similities with their "rivals", Sanosuke and Wassan. They both: -Are fist fighters -Used to be "criminals" -Are very proud and confident in their abilities Yoichi is just kenshin in a modern era with a lighter story, more funny situations and kind of perverted.
