Katekyo Hitman Reborn is an outstandingly well made anime. I definitely recommend that you watch it if comedy and action applies to your genre of choice.

At first glance, Katekyo Hitman Reborn may seem boring. The major flaw of the anime is that it absolutely misleads you, and it completely deceives you into either a) dropping the anime or b) thinking the anime is lame, when it isn't!
The first 20 episodes may mislead you to drop the anime, just like it misled me, because of its fillerlike episodes. You will most likely tell yourself "Wow, this is really lame. What's the point of all this?" read more

Hitman Reborn was initially recommended to me by my friend. However the story looked dull and uninteresting to me, and I was also not sure if I would like it (I watch anime like Bleach, DGrayMan etc.) Thus I started off with the manga. The first thing I thought when I read the manga was "WTH is with that stupid looking baby? The main character is also so badly drawn!" However, after reading a few chapters, I got hooked and finished 100+ chapters in a day. I decided to give the anime a try, as I wanted to see how well the characters could be read more

Story - 8

Hitman Reborn is a pretty unique anime in my opinion. There is one major flaw in the story that prevents me from giving it a full 10. The first 20 episodes or so have no real story arc. While each episode is interesting and helps develop the characters it takes way too long for the story to truly begin. But I will say this. The story arc in this anime is top notch. Once you get to episode 20+ you will be watching the episodes one after another after another. I am anxiously biting my fingernails waiting for the next episodes to be read more

“WHAT THE HECK IS WITH THAT LITTLE CHIBI DUDE?” I thought to myself when I watched the first episode of Kateikyoushi Hitman Reborn! aka Katekyo Hitman Reborn. What was with the really silly protagonist? Why was he such a wimp and loser? And what was with his weird “transformation?” It’s so bloody revolting and crazy. I thought that the anime was on crack… Seven months later, I took the advice of a friend and decided to give this anime a second chance.

After the second episode and a bit of my own research for random other information and media of the series, I fell in read more

Recommendations

Both series seem to have a similar type of the main character: a good-natured boy who used to be a loser and then, through difficult training, he starts getting stronger and gets new friends on the way. In both animes the main character and his friends go through series of battles, increasingly more difficult, and their defeated rivals later become their allies and come to help.
Both main characters have look very similar and have very similar personalities in addition both anime shows are very hilarious while having their serious moments. The supporting casts for both shows also contribute similarly to their respective anime.
reportRecommended by VK11 - Add to favorites
Similarities:
- Both heirs to their respective families, Nura Rikuo and Sawada Tsunayoshi are expected to take up the mantle as their next respective heads, and both are trying to evade their fate.
- Both have their respective cool transformations (Yoru Rikuo and HDWM Tsuna, respectively)
- Both have their own entourage (Nura Clan and Vongola Family)

Differences
- Tsuna's still denying it, while Rikuo accepted his role with a bang after the first few episodes
- Tsuna only found out about being boss at the first episode, while Rikuo lived with yokai all his life
- Tsuna seems detached from his HDWM, and isn't as cool when he's normal, while Rikuo tends to be badass even when not in Yoru Rikuo form
Tsuna's glove and Natsu's Magic has Both Flame on their Hand
doesnt that remind you of both anime?;P
Hokage Is the Boss.
The main charactar start to be a lonely week drop-out, No-good, but as times flow they start to grow, and become stronger, Naruto Wants to become hokage, while Tsuna which is the main charactar in Reborn, is forced to become the Boss of the strongest mafia, Vongola.

To become a Boss Is like becoming the Hokage, The Boss's responsibility is to protect his "family" and the hokages responsibility is to protect the village.

Comedy is a big part in Naruto, and In Hitman Reborn too,
well, both are based on Shounen Jump Manga series. it's the switching between random comedy and some action based plot without difficulty that somehow gives these shows a similar feel. Also, a main chast of charas are introduced and make (random) apperances now and then...overall randomness level is higher in Gintama though.
