Alongside his friend Jin—who is a master of soccer in comparison to Tsukushi—they hope to help Seiseki in becoming this year’s best soccer team. With tough training and hard games to get through can Tsukushi become a star player? Find out in Days!

Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun and Days are both soccer focused manga and also have very interesting main characters. It almost seems silly that a guy who can barely walk without tripping would even want to play soccer or have the means of getting better at it. However, that goes to show you that nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it! We love the art and story for Days and if you love Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun for its mixture of soccer and school life, then it should be a great read for you. Days also has an anime adaptation like Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun so you can enjoy that after you read the manga!

Koukou Kyuuji Zawa-san will let the readers see Zawa’s life through not only her own eyes but others as well. Watch as this girl proves she has the chops to play with the big boys.

Zawa’s lifestyle may not be anywhere near as radical as Aoyama’s—though who really is in our manga list besides one other?—but the comedy Zawa’s tale has as well as the just random events feel really similar to Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun. Plus our main girl Zawa plays baseball with other guys and sometimes even better than they do! That alone makes Koukou Kyuuji Zawa-san a worthwhile read. It goes to show you girls can do what boys do.

  • Published: Aug, 2008- Present

Sousuke Youki comes from a tough school known as Teirin High School. Here people are divided into only two categories: gangs and sport players. For Youki, he comes from the former and is known throughout the school for being a strong warrior who can take down any opponent. However, while walking through school one day, Kazumi—a golfer at the school—looks at Youki and walks past him as if he were trash. Angered by this motion, Youki joins the golf team and wants to prove he can be a better golfer than Kazumi! Get ready to tee up in King Golf.

Sometimes when we read a manga like Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun or King Golf, we think to ourselves, man manga is weird. However, as we read we are blown away by funny stories and just seemingly outrageous ideas and themes. That’s why King Golf was a must for our 6 Manga Like Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun list. With some nice shounen themes, plenty of comedy and the obvious sports theme squeezed in for good measure, King Golf is so far shaping up to be a great manga series. We have to wonder what would happen if Youki met Aoyama, would he want to prove to him that he can be an even better cleaner then Aoyama? That sounds ridiculous but now we want it to happen…

4. Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru

  • Authors: Baba, Yasushi
  • Genres: Action, Comedy, Martial Arts, Romance, Sports, Seinen
  • Volumes: 50
  • Published: Mar, 2000- Aug, 2012

Kohinata Minoru might be physically adept at sports but that doesn’t stop him from getting bullied. Even at a college level, Minoru faces constant harassment. One night when Minoru is attacked by some bullies, he is luckily saved by a karate student at his college. Calling himself Mutou Ryuuji, his true intentions of saving Minoru was so he could force him to join the karate club. Can the sports adept do well in karate?

In life, we have come to understand one simple thing. Not everything goes according to plans. That’s why we loved Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru as it shows our main character Minoru being dragged into a different lifestyle completely thanks to one event that befalls him. Like Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun, Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru dabbles between many different genres and doesn’t put its main theme first and foremost all the time. Plus since Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru is 50 volumes long you’ll have plenty to read while you wait for more Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun to release.

5. Rough

  • Authors: Adachi, Mitsuru
  • Genres: Comedy, Drama, Romance, School, Sports
  • Volumes: 12
  • Published: 1987- 1989

Friends Yamato Keisuke and Ninomiya Ami may compete in different swimming events—Yamato is a freestyle swimmer while Ami is a diver—but they still get along and respect each other. However, the same can’t be said of their families. Ironically, both Yamato and Ami’s families own confectionery shops and in the past started a war because of a stolen idea. Can the two friends still keep their rivalry—and possible romance—alive despite their families? Well, find out by reading Rough by mangaka Adachi Mitsuru.

Rough might be an older manga—that date was before some of us here at Honey’s Anime were born—but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it as much as a modern manga. Rough is a cute story that at times borderlines on the absolute ridiculous. Seriously a family rivalry over a cake shaped like an owl caused a lifelong hate? Yet, that’s why we love it so much, it’s simple and a fun read with some great classic art and a romance story thrown in for good measure. Rough will definitely appeal to those who like older manga as well as Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun.

6. Keppeki Shounen Kanzen Soubi

  • Authors: Tobina, Touya
  • Genres: Comedy, Romance, School, Shoujo
  • Volumes: 2
  • Published: Dec, 2005- Apr, 2007

After a traumatizing incident at an amusement park, Sata Senda has become a germaphobe and clean freak. Despite constant harassment from classmates, Sata still finds some solace in some friends who understand his ailment. However, when one of those friends leave to go overseas, Sata finds himself down to one friend and surrounded by odd people. A girl who loves Sata, a dude really into bunnies and a person who may love raincoats too much. Can Sata deal with this odd crowd all while keeping clean?

It seems almost destined that our list would end with Keppeki Shounen Kanzen Soubi. While unlike the soccer focused Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun, Keppeki Shounen Kanzen Soubi still has a lot of traits that we felt were perfect for our list. Not only are both Sata and Aoyama both clean freaks but they still must deal with school life and things that seem to want to make them get dirty. The cast of Keppeki Shounen Kanzen Soubi is very interesting and silly, making this story really fun to read. At only 2 volumes long, it won’t take much time to fly through Keppeki Shounen Kanzen Soubi, but that isn’t a bad thing at all. We fully recommending giving Keppeki Sounen Kanzen Soubi a try. You can then tell us in the comments below who your favorite clean freak is, Aoyama or Sata.
