hi - i've been a big dragonball z fan.
i just got recently told about tenjho tenge - i like it very much.
does anyone know, or can recommend, other anime similar to tenjho?
Real Bout High School
Yu Yu Hakusho
Shadow Skill TV
Ikki Tousen. It is far and away the closest thing to Tenjho Tenge story and character wise. The fight animation isn't quite up to TenTen standards, but there's still plenty of it. And it has a much better ending than the TenTen anime. Also there's lots of boobies and fanservice, just like in TenTen.
I wouldn't recommend the Ikki Tousen manga though (renamed Battle Vixens by Tokypop.) They made some edits and some of the translations are pretty ridiculous. Now it's not as bad as the edits CMX did with the TenTen manga, but still, it's there.
ok cool, thanks guys.
i'll start hunting for those anime on your list.
Though its not like Tenjou Tenge, but its from the same creator, you might like Air Gear. Think Jet Set Radio... or People on Rollar Blades doing kickass things.
As well, I second that for GANTZ, man do I love the series and manga.
I have to agree with what was already said here, Ikkitousen is probably the closest anime to Tenjo Tenge...the animation style, the fights, the boobs, the "stupid char" (both main female characters are kinda dumb)...and the most important, the stort, school kids that only think about fighting and an uber strong character that they want to defeat/ take revenge upon.
Air gear was insane, both the manga and the anime.
And like the other people said it's by the same mangaka as tenjou tenge, so it's very similar ( same amount of ecchi, action and awesomenes..).
As others mentioned before, I recommend Air Gear.
