The anime really has a nice way of putting all of the pieces together of history, while being able to entertain us with sword play, hand to hand combat, and high flying acrobatics. If you enjoy history with a little slice of action then definitely tune into Sengoku Basara.
5. Tenjho Tenge
For some people, high school represents the opportunity for a fresh start. You can take new classes and make new friends. For Souchiro and Bob, though, high school means something different: the chance to become the top fighters in the entire student body.
The story is fairly generic, but Tenjho Tenge is home to some really exciting fight scenes.
4. Hajime no Ippo
Makunouchi was just your regular student in high school who felt like his life wasn't going anywhere. He was bullied countless times and due to his weak stature, couldn't defend himself which led to him walking home with bruises. It was at that moment, when a person changed his life and inspired him to become the known boxer.
Boxing is an art which requires an immense amount of mental training, but also requires the passion and determination to continue. Throughout the series, we see Makunouchi and his peers battle it out in the leagues to become the number one boxer in Japan.
