As the title says, I'm looking for some anime to watch that is similar in style to Hajime No Ippo, Shijō Saikyō no Deshi: Kenichi and Eyeshield 21. I'll start by listing some of the ones I've seen and like.

Hajime No Ippo, Shijō Saikyō no Deshi: Kenichi, Code Geass, Death Note, Bleach, Dragonball +Z/GT, Naruto + Shippuden, Hikaru no go, One Piece, Hunter X Hunter, Parasyte the Maxim, Shingeki no Kyojin, Tokyo Ghoul, Eyeshield 21, Tenjou Tenge, Sword Art Online, Reborn, Fairy Tail, Full Metal Alchemist, No Game No Life, Neon Genesis and possibly some more that I am forgetting at the moment.

Here is a list of anime that have been suggested to me in the past but for whatever reason I just couldn't get into them. Guilty Crown, Gantz, Deadman Wonderland, Shiki, Pupa, Mirai Nikki, D.Gray-man, Pandora Hearts, Darker then Black, Steins;Gate, Btoom, Fooly Cooly and Fate/Zero.

Main overall similar plot I'm looking for is weak person, kid or adult doesn't matter, gets thrown into a world he know nothing about, i.e. boxing, martial arts, Go, slowly starts becoming good at what he's doing and ends up being a badass by the end. I'd prefer longer shows to shorter ones and the show doesn't have to be action driven but it's nice if the story moves at a good pace.

So, anyone know something that would be a good fit?

The only two that really come to mind--and they aren't perfect fits--are Eureka Seven and A Certain Magical Index.

I suppose Trigun has a similar feel to many of the shows you like, but a much different plot outline from what you describe. Same goes for Full Metal Panic.

This is unrelated to the REQUESTED related...But have You checked Out "Hayate the Combat Butler" ~? I JUST started watching it for the first time Myself as of last Night.

Also, "Parasyte" is freaking amazing regardless of which Genre may be Your favorite. It's THE most incredible Show Out there this past, and continuing into the Early 2015 Season. And when it's all said and done, it will more than likely ranked High among My ALL TIME BEST Top 20.

OH YEAH...If You like Mecha's "Bokurano" is a great Show as well.

you've seen all the good anime, you can die happy knowing you've watched the best of the best.

Try "Blast of the tempest", "Gargantia" and "Haikyuu".

If you're in for a comedy mood, Ixion Saga DT is a good fantasy/adventure anime, it's just very packed with parody.

Highly unlikely you'll like these, but i'll recommend anyway (they seem to fit your story detail)...:

- World Trigger
- Mushibugyo

If that is true then that makes me sad, I will look over these suggestions and hopefully find something I like.

/yowamushi-pedal perhaps. The first season (38 eps) is complete but the series is still running, currently at episode 16 of the second season, Grande Road.

You'll need to scroll down and click on the first season stripe if you visit the show page here.
