SynopsisThere is no putting it lightly—Tsunayoshi Sawada is just no good. He is clumsy, talentless, and desperately in love with the school idol Kyoko Sasagawa, a girl so completely out of his league. Dubbed "Loser Tsuna" by his classmates, he seems to be the very personification of failure in the guise of a middle-schooler.
Tsuna's boring life takes an extraordinary twist when he encounters the mysterious Reborn, who happens to be a hitman... and shockingly, a baby! Sent from the strongest Mafia family in Italy, Reborn is assigned the daunting mission of preparing the dull middle schooler to succeed the ninth boss of the notorious Vongola family, who is on the brink of retirement. The dull boy has a grueling road ahead, but with the help of his new criminal affiliates and his peculiar home tutor, perhaps even Loser Tsuna can achieve greatness.

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 brought to life.
The only thing that prevented me from giving a 10/10 was that the story took waaaaaaay too long to start! Sure, the first 20 episodes were amusing and had me cracked up, but there was no real storyline to it. The anime was also inferior to the manga in my opinion, as they had more fillers and also took out the guns and knives (and Tsuna's reactions to them) that would have made the whole thing even more hilarious. However after that the real action starts, which had me hooked all the way! The storyline is extremely unique, and Tsuna's irritating underwear transformation thing became less frequent, and finally disappeared altogether :D It is also way different from most shonen anime, which usually only consists of blind fighting and no development at all. In all, an amazing storyline! (After the first 20 episodes, that is, but don't skip till there, have a look at the characters!) :DD
I would give it an 8/10, as the characters in my opinion were not very well drawn. The characters usually look fine, however weird if shown from different angles. However the animation was okay, the fighting scenes were well animated, and I especially enjoyed looking at Tsuna's weird faces whenever Reborn is up to his antics again x)
In my opinion the OPs were the BEST! Drawing days (First OP) had me addicted the first time I listened to it. Except for OP3 (Jumping Days I think), I just didn't like it at all D: The voices for the characters in my opinion were well matched and I just loooooooove them, but Tsuna's voice is still a little weird to me (Too high I guess). The BGM, however, was AMAZING. It totally brings out the mood in whatever is happening and will have you paying attention to it in spite of the action going on! Each character's theme was also awesome, especially Hibari and Gokudera's theme.
In all, the characters were what makes Reborn a kickass anime! :DDDD It is amazing how some characters who only appeared for comic reliefs could get so serious and awesome whenever they needed to! The way the characters have matured is the main factor that kept me hooked onto the series. The transitioning is so subtle, you wouldn't even notice how much they've grown until you think back and remember how they used to be (Remember whiny old Tsuna?) The different personalities that match each of the characters and the way they follow such an unlikely boss is truly cool! :DDDD
I enjoyed Reborn as a whole, except for the first 20 episodes (It's TWENTY hello) but the storyline and arcs later on made up for it, and also the character's ridiculous antics which really give the series a light feeling, yet serious when needed.
Overall, if you're looking for a new anime to watch, try Hitman Reborn! It may seem boring at first, but persevere on! Until the main story starts, there is a good chance that you'll be hooked too :D And the storyline is amazingly unique, I've never seen any anime like it before xD
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 subbed!
Art - 8
The artwork in Hitman Reborn is decent. The lame underwear morph on every episode for a while is what brings the grade down a bit, but Tsuna begins to look awesome about 25 episodes in, when the underwear morph becomes not so common and is replaced by something else. The other characters are also drawn very well.
Sound - 9
The soundtrack for Hitman Reborn is awesome both opening and ending songs. The japanese voices all fit the characters as well. The only reason sound isn't a 10 is because of Tsuna's voice in underwear mode. It gets so annoying during the few long sequences.
Characters - 10
The Characters are all unique, with a wide range of personalities all following an unlikely protagonist. Quite frankly i'm jealous of Tsuna. Hes got the perfect range of friends all with flaws that fit the characters as well as strong loyalty to him. The characters couldn't be more enjoyalble. (Save for Tsuna in underwear mode) (Lets face it Underwear mode sucks >.> Thankfully it practically disappears entirely once the true story arc starts.)
Enjoyment - 8
Unfortunately Hitman Reborn loses 2 points here because of how long it takes to get rolling. It seriously has much too long of an introduction phase. If I were to rewatch Hitman Reborn I would start around episode 15 or so. That way you can get a memory of the characters before the story starts. You wont miss practically anything and you'll be loving Hitman Reborn from the start.
Overall - 9
Overall Hitman Reborn gets a 9. It truly is an awesome anime that will keep you hungering for more once it gets rolling. read more
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?" That's what I thought, but I gave it a chance. (And I'm SO glad I did. Katekyo Hitman Reborn is now my absolute favorite anime.)
The beginning is kind of slow and different from the rest of the later episodes, because apparently KHR was initially meant to be a gag anime - it was supposed to be something funny and comedic. The anime took a different turn as you progress to episode 20 into something more serious.
The first 20 episodes is merely a /long/ introduction to the anime. It's worth watching though, because you get to be familiar with all the characters. They are all likeable! If you decide to watch Katekyo Hitman Reborn (and I hope you will!) you should decide whether you like it or not, after 25 episodes or so. It's only fair, right? All animes have their flaws; and it's flaw, in my opinion is that they don't give it a decent start. If you do not have the patience for that, then this anime may not be for you.
Katekyo Hitman Reborn deals with the mafia. Tsuna, the *main* character, is in the next line to be the 10th boss for the Vongola Family~ (one of the many families in the mafia.) Reborn, a hitman, and also a baby (hehe), travels from Italy to Japan to tutor Tsuna to become a worthy boss for the Vongola Family.
From then on, Tsuna's adventures and what he experiences are endless-- but they're all interesting. Over the course of the anime, Tsuna grows and matures, and becomes really strong; fighting his enemies and getting stronger each fight he experiences. The fights he encounters are well made, and they WILL keep you at the edge of your seat. Tsuna isn't the only one fighting, though-- he also has a "family"-- his comrades, if you will, and the battles they encounter are endless.
The art is well made; I don't think there is much to complain about it.
It isn't outstandingly good, nor is it horribly bad to a point where you have to shield your eyes. The characters are wonderfully drawn and are all unique in their own ways. The art progressively gets better as you further get into the anime.
The sound is absolutely AMAZING. It deserves an 11/10, as opposed to a 10/10.
I loved all of the openings, and endings-- I never once had to skip it; and that's kind of rare, considering the fact that I'm absolutely picky with my music.
The soundtrack is amazing as well, there is a couple of them for EACH character (well, the main characters, anyways.)
They have a soundtrack for every different scene in the anime, and it is absolutely positively pleasing to the ears. Everything about it is EPIC!
The characters are very well portrayed; you can't help but love all of them (well most of them anyways.) They change greatly over the course of the anime and it's worthwhile to watch them grow up.
I love Katekyo Hitman Reborn! I love everything about it; it makes me laugh until I fall off my seat and look like a loser, it makes me sad as they go through their hard times, it makes me happy as they overcome their obstacles-- and so on.
I can ramble on forever about how much I love the anime, but I'm going to end now, before I end up typing a ten page paper.
Katekyo Hitman Reborn is an AMAZING anime as I mentioned a billion times (well not really, but let's pretend.) I highly suggest that you go off and watch it right now, but I can't tell you what to do. It's ultimately up to you.
Everything about it is amazing- it's storyline, (although it may seem boring at first) it's art, it's sound, it's characters-- it's everything! 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 love. I also was VERY addicted. I became current with the series in four days; I even endured a rough night and watched 20episodes in one sitting. Anyways, arhem. Let me go into further detail of how my fanaticism for this series began.
Okay, well, I actually thought the first few episodes were rather ridiculous, still. I kept on watching them, though. I mean, who can turn down a Mafia-based anime, anyway? Episodes, nevertheless, turned out to be so incredibly ridiculous that I just had to watch more and more because of the hilarity and comedy I found within the first twenty episodes. To my surprise, I really could not give up on any of the “Filler” episodes or beginning episodes because I was already hooked on the craziness of the series. And although the beginning got way too episodic and “lame” (e.g. like Bleach, D. Gray-Man, and Naruto), I did not give up hope for the series to improve and for the story to develop. The beginning helped create a very fine atmosphere and background for the lifestyles of the protagonists. Once the plot began to reach its first “arc,” or main story, I was amazed by the sudden turn of events. It was a very pleasant surprise to find the main characters undertaking actions to carrying out a rather “dangerous task.” After the arc finishes, there are a couple “Filler” episodes but, they do not entirely intend to act as such because they do develop towards the next arc. The second arc is full of great action and thrill. As of right now, it is still underway. And, as I write this review, I am very anxious to watch more!
EDIT: Wanted to revise this a bit... since I've watched 42more episodes... my impressions of the anime have slightly changed... I'm still a die-hard fan of the series, I have to say... the storyline has indeed slowed down after the second arc, and well... Filler episodes became a bit more trivial and useless... Regardless, it's been on track again to a third arc for the last few episodes. And yet the annoying thing is that, as some people have said, there's always a flashback to what's happened so far... Like from in Bleach. And so, the plot has slowed down tremendously... The characters are still very original and entertaining to observe in developments, though... All other aspects are still very true, though. :P So be sure to keep with this series for it's uniqueness in many other aspects and well general theme. :P
Another reason why I love this series is obviously because of the character development and portrayal. The characters are all just so amazing and cool in their own special ways. Each character possesses a unique and different personality from every other character. From the first impressions of each character, I was rather disgusted. But upon learning more about each character in time, I grew to love each and every character because they each had a special charm or trait that seemed very personal and almost real. I felt very connected to several characters. Furthermore, the character development was not slow at all. Okay, there were a couple cases where the character flash-backs got a bit tedious to watch, but there were sufficient amounts of information to obtain in the meanwhile, so I was not too frustrated with them. Then, information given about the characters were developed into the story in a rather formal and thorough manner which I felt was effective for letting me know about each character. As for a few characters, I have felt (and sometimes still feel) a bit irked by them and their funky and somewhat “naturally” irritating personalities. However, as the story has progressed, I want to say that the characters have grown on me. And now, I appreciate the existence of every one of the characters, and hope to watch (and read) more about them all.
What also helped me get more into the anime was the animation. Initially, I found it a bit funky, but I watched more and began to realize it was actually pretty impressive. The graphics have been, for the most part, to my standards at least, above par. Everything was quite thoroughly illustrated and never too flashy, abrupt, and messed up. Action scenes were detailed and well scripted and screened. The art styles were well designed, too. I found that the characters and settings did not lack too many details from the original artwork.
Now as for the music… I loved all the sounds! <3
As in, I have listened to the soundtracks and opening and ending theme songs of the series so many times that I think it may be too excessive. I don’t recall too much insert music, but that does not take away from the series since the other sound effects and background music have suited well for all the situations and scenarios of the anime. Sometimes, the music gets a bit wacky, but those are obviously for the funny situations that are in the anime. For the fight scenes, there is more than reasonable usage for action music. Thrills and suspense are well built into scenarios due to the special styles of background music used. Special other sounds are also very appropriated “placed” throughout the series. From the countless times I’ve listened to each and every theme song used, I still cannot get enough of the fabulousness of each song. I enjoyed the opening theme songs so much that I had to watch them all for every episode that I watched in the last four days. Now, yes as much of a waste of time that might have been, I could not get enough of it. The “shot” selections used during the theme songs were neither that great nor that terrible, but I found that they worked fine. And, as long as the songs are good and the shots used are not that revealing nor weird, I could deal with it.
Altogether, I found that the animation company that produces this series was able to pull through every episode very well. I did not feel like they wasted much of my watching time at all because everything seemed at least 25% relevant to the story if not also sparked my interest in watching more. Really, I felt that the plot has moved at a very steady pace that still stirs anxiety and curiosity because of major cliffhangers. I cannot get enough of this series. This is one amazing manga series that has been adapted into an anime that has lead me to enjoy the story in a very wonderful and exciting way. For a load of laughter, adventure, and action, be sure to give this anime a try. read more
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.
The main characters, Tsuna and Kenichi, started out as losers before meeting up with their eventual masters, Reborn and the Ryozanpaku dojo respectively. Both consist of fairly comical aspects of the daily lives and training methods of both characters, as well as a action side other storyline. Very often, both cahracters will also try to impress their love targets, Kyoko and Miu, often with the help of their masters. Eventually, both mains also start getting their own followers in the form of the Vongola and Shinpaku, though it should be noted that neither are very fond of their roles as the leaders of their units.
IMO, KHR is much better though, in terms of likable characters and storyline.
Both have extreamly weak characters at the beggining of the show, but turn out to be badasses later on. Both have concept of being trained by "masters" who don't involve themselves much and are confident in the ability of their pupil. Both animes gather powerful allies to fight a gang/organization. Sub characters are also very enjoyable.
Hitman is very similar to Kenichi in the sense that there are "Masters" that dont get involved, and the character growth is similar as well. Also the surroundings are rather similar (Schools + area around the schools). On top of that, the character growth method is similar ~ Student gets trained by master, gets incredibly stronger each time.
Not much more to say that that but, You should definitely check out Hitman if you liked Kenichi, and vice versa.
Both Kenichi & hitman have similar feeling, School setting, master disciple relationships etc. Kenichi is eechier & focused more on martial arts <.<
-Both have the main character starting out as totally wimpy but throughout the series they get strong
-Enemies become friends
-Both have the main character trained by more than one person, so a lot of masters
-Good humor for both of them too
It is both about the same because it's started off with weaklings, like no-good tsuna and kenichi. Then someone trained them and become very strong, undergo different type of trainings and experience some real-life fights and both of them are very kind at heart. They both liked a girl, and even though the characteristics of the girl is different but treated them about the same, in short, they are about the same and rocks~!!
Both feature two hero's that are hesitant to take their role and start off as cowardly but eventually build to become stronger characters.
Both feature a strong supporting cast of hero's and villains.
Both have very wise, humorous, and powerful teachers.
The protagonist must fight there way through each challenger.
Hitman features gang vs gang
Kenichi features martial arts group vs martial arts group
Main characters in both series are depicted as a weak, good-natured, young boy. Throughout the series, both main characters become much stronger, gains more allies, leading those around them.
Both stories have an incredibly weak main character that becomes stronger throughout the story. Both characters have no friends and make them as they go. Both characters get stronger for the sake of their friends, and they have similar messages about doing what's right for the sake of others. Both have a lot of really good comedy and are a bit over the top at times.
Both are also adapted from manga series and only cover part, so I recommend reading both manga because the manga are actually a little better than the anime.
I longed for an Anime which is similar to Reborn in terms of Everything. And with "History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi" I may found the Anime which is most similar to Reborn than everything else. And as Takahashi-sensei (Crows, Worst) once said: "If you have the main character, you most likely also got the plot". First let me say that Kenichi and Tsuna almost are the same person. Both are losers with no friends, bullied in school and almost bad in everything. But after a lot of training, with invincible Masters (Reborn and Ryouzanpaku), and fights (even though they both despise violence) they gain a high amount of Friends and even some self confidence. The plot is also similar as both always getting dragged and involved in some kind of "organisation" they don't want to, cause the organisation is mostly responsible for crime and violence (Vongola Mafia and Shinpaku Alliance). Lastly said, in both Anime there also is a big part comedy. You just have to recognize the other series in one of them. I highly recommend you to watch the other Anime if you enjoyed one of them. You won't regret it.
In both series, there are quite a lot of similarities:
The main male protagonist seems like a normal boy but is part of a family/organization that specializes in a dangerous profession/arts. They also seems to have a friendly relationship with a main female character from both series.
In both series, there is a lot of funny dialogues, action, drama, and other events that transforms the main male protagonist from a normal boy to a more reliable character through his development.
takes whinny boys, and turn them into heroes
have crazy teacher(s)
makes you want to root for the main charracter
Tsuna and Kenchi were weak at first but gradually they get stonger through their training and tutors.
I think they're both great! If you like twisted, pervy, weird and laughable characters, you have to watch these!
Hitman reborn is quite lame at the beginning, but it's still important to watch to get a sense of the different characters (a bond/connection if you prefer) and knowledge about how the group meet and hook up.
I've watched it twice and I'm sure I'll be watching it again next year maybe :D
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.
1. The names Tsuna and Sena
2. They both have brown and spiky hair
3. Both characters start out wimpy and with no friends, then they make friends and eventually become stronger in order to protect their friends beliefs and dreams.
Despite differing by the main genre which lead both stories i feel to say that Katekyo Hitman Reborn and Eyeshield21 do share similar traits:
- we first see the main male character (Tsuna from KHR and Sena from E21) as weak, coward and easily afraid by stuff - but later, with time, he learns to be strong and to not run away in order to protect his friends and dreams.
- then, the amazing characters around the protagonist are very well developed in personality & design in both series
I'm surely aware of the fact that who might like sports anime may not like super power genre anime or viceversa, but somehow they show certain epic characters and rythm that makes me tell you that i strong recommend both series :3
The Story and the plot is very diffrent .. BUT !
Belive me when you watch them both youll get the same unique feeling
i recommend you , watch them both ! , the main character has the same
personality though !
Same because the main character was a wimp and became a kick ass fighter xD
Eyeshield is an sports anime?? WTH Shoryuuken. Both of these anime the main character is weak, failure and become stronger, Tsuna with a pill, Sena by himself. They also both have stellar character depth and devolpment.
To be honest, when I first saw Sena, I immediately thought of Tsuna in Reborn. Both are extremely cowardly, get strong when protecting their friends, and even look alike. Both of em have spikey hair too. :) anyways both show a strong mentality toward achieving certain goals together with friends and family. Only difference is one's American Football and the other's a Mafia.
After watching the first couple episodes of Eyeshield 21, I started thinking. Sena reminds me of Tsuna a LOT. They both look very similar, their names even sound similar, they are/were both always picked on, they both are very timid, they're not particularly good at anything, they are both very blessed with skills but don't realize it, they both improve as the story moves along, and they are both considered "aces", the best among their friends as they fight their way to the top so they can fulfill their dreams.
The stories are also started in very similar ways. Sena and Tsuna are both timid losers who get picked on all the time, until they are taken out of that dark hole by people who are seemingly violent. Gradually, they meet friends along their journey and they all grow and fight together. They face tough opponents, but they always believe in each other and everything turns out ok.
The main ideas of both stories are completely different, one being about the mafia and the other about football, but they both have the same hidden, or completely obvious, meanings in them. Both the stories surround friends that have fun, fight, and win and lose together.
Alright... enough of the serious... these anime are both freaking AMAZING and you have to watch them!!!
If u liked KHR u will love Eyeshiel 21.Both main characters are simmilar Tsuna(KHR) and Sena from Eyeshield 21. They start as weakling and a no good at all charackters. They both are getting dragged into a world where there are good at.
If you like wimpy boys turning into super and overly awesome people. Then you'll probably like both. However eyeshield 21 is sports oriented while KHR is action.
Both the main characters have similar personalities and they kind of look the same.Both anime are hilarious.
Both are Similar because of how both Main Characters are innocent and gets sucked in to a new world (not literally)
Hitman Reborn is about the Mafia and Eyeshield 21 is about football
Both of the main characters are forced into it
In the end they like it
-Both protagonists are similar, appearance-wise.
-Both protagonists are often bullied, picked on in the start of the series.
-Both protagonists gets involved into a situation that they didn't actually wanted to be part of.
-Both protagonists gets a lot of friends (and foes, but turns into comrades) throughout the story.
Both series heavily focuses on friendship and a lot of drama. However, it does have comedy and marvelous characters that you can get easily attached to.
- 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)
- 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
Main character doesn't want to take responsibility of his Clan/Family, circumstances forces him to protect his friends.
Also, both main characters have cool alter ego's/transformations that own everything.
they both also have fan girls who admire the main character with loyal "nakama" who fight alongside them.
They both have protagonists who deny the position that they are supposed to take, and they both "turn cool" all of a sudden when they fight. For Tsuna it's his Hyper Dying Will mode and his denial of being the 10th Vongola boss. For Rikuo it's his yokai form and his denial of becoming the next yokai leader.
Both maincharacter are to be the next head of a family, for Tsuna that's a Mafia Family and for Rikua a Demon Family.
Both don't want this at first.
In both anime the maincharacters are followed by a powerfull group of friends.
Both animes will make you laugh.
Young main character first doesn't want to accept his fate as an heir to a clan (in this case, Mafia, but a family nonetheless?) but as he makes friends he wishes to protect, he relies on his newfound powers to fight off powerful enemies. Both have servants that are willing to die to protect them and in both there are clashes of powerful families against each other or also fights within the family.
main chars refuse to take the boss seat, but suddenly they both take the seat for some reasons
Both the main character refuses to take on the leadership of their family the different is Reborn is the mafia boss and Nurarihyon no Mago is head leader of a group of Yokai
both involve an unwilling successor and yakuza, mafia or organized crime type heirs
Nuraihyon and Reborn both deals with powerful families with a rich backgrounds. At the center of it is a young boy who serves as the main male protagonist of other series.
Both series' main male protagonist possesses special abilities after they undergo a transformation gaining powers. They use that power to fight what they believe in. However at many stances, he doesn't seem to embrace his role as an heir to his clan/family.
Both series contains a lot of action in the style of shounen fights. There are also organizations/groups that serves as adversaries. The main male protagonist also has many friends and harbors affections towards one of them. There is also a lot of comedy and some history regarding some of the supporting characters.
If you are into Mafia stories then this two are highly recommended. Though, that being said the first one is modern and the other is traditional........
Young main character first doesn't want to accept his fate as an heir to a clan (in this case, Mafia, but a family nonetheless?) but as he makes friends he wishes to protect, he relies on his newfound powers to fight off powerful enemies. Both have servants that are willing to die to protect them and in both there are clashes of powerful families against each other or also fights within the family.
They are both about a boy, that has to become the leader of a group. There is a little difference Nurarihyon is about demons, and Katekyo is about mafia. Both the boys don't want to be the leader at first, but later they want to, to protect their friends
Both are heirs to their family, gets stronger and learns new abilities, both have an alter ego. It's similar in every way besides rikou accepts his roll quite quickly while tsuna doesn't.
Tsuna's glove and Natsu's Magic has Both Flame on their Hand
doesnt that remind you of both anime?;P
In both anime the main guy fights with fire. And also both main characters has a person that suports him and give him some advices in fights [for Tsuna it's the Arcobaleno Baby Reborn and for Natsu it's Happy the flying "cat"].
Also in Both Anime there is that "Powerfull" Person who wants to make something stronger, in Fairy Tail it's the Gilde and in Katekyo Hitman Reborn! it's the Family, and it doesn't even matter for him if it would take someones life.
oh and doesn't remind you the name Natsu of some ultra cute lion that doesn' really look like a lion? ;P
Fire, Ice, Thunder, Swords - Laughter, Friendship, Family, Loyalty All of these are an essential part that represent each Anime. The difference are the characters and the situation.
Plus they both have lovable cute characters, KHR!(Reborn, Lambo, I-pin) and Happy ;) in Fairy Tail.
Both Tsuna and Natsu care for their friends who they call 'part of the family .
Both of them try their best to maintain the happiness of their own family .
Both animes are about a group of friends fighting and protecting each other. They have action, friendship, a little bit of humor and all kinds of different characters you fall in love with immediately.
They both care to what they believe, where they belong, and the people beside them.
Both the animes are pretty similar. Both are long-stretched action-based animes. And both contain the same kind of protagonist.
- Both have similar bonds between large groups of nakama
- Natsu and Tsuna are main characters who fight with fire
- Laxus and Mukuro
- Makarov and Reborn are short guys who whip the main character into shape
- Erza and Lal Mirch
- Elfman and Ryohei are manly man who shout a lot and fight with their fists
Natsu and Tsuna both have flame-related powers.
There's a character names Natsu in each.
Guilds here are like families in KHR.
about a boy who have super powers and want to save his friends, both have fighting scene and comedy scene and love story a bit i guess, but i like khr better :)
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,
Tsuna is kinda like Naruto in the begining, a loser with no much talent, comedy is playing a big part and friendship too. Later does it became more serious and much more action and both Tsuna and Naruto becomes very strong.
virtual unskilled young male lead...through struggles and training become stronger....long drawn battles which displayed alot of amazing battle strategies.. comarade with friends...both leads are the clowns (butt of jokes)
Katekyo hitman Reborn is very similar to Naruto in some ways. First is the main character. Tsuna and Naruto are both no-good at the start. Then some trainings are similar. Patience, determination and strenght are just a few. Try watching KHR to know more. Trust me, you'll love it! If not, comment me.
I have never thought that I will find any similarities in these animes (except that they are both long shounens). Those who watched Naruto and Naruto Shippuden will definitely like/love Katekyo Hitman Reborn! (but I can't promise the same if the opposite)...
Both Of The Characters:
- Start to build their way up and develop their real personality and image from the very 0. Naruto is a recluse, who never had any close or far frinds, because everyone is afraid to mix with him, because of his cursed mark and the rumours about beast, living inside the boy. On the other hand he is a complete looser,
who does something silly all the time, sometimes more than one silly thing at a time. He got used to living alone, and even though his new friends don't seem to like him much, that doesn't stop him for aiming to fight and achieve his goals.
Tsuna doesn't have many friends and he is used to the live of a loner (loner, not lonely). Unlike Naruto, he has a family and couple of, well, friendly classmates on his side, but he doesn't mind being alone at all.
- Have kind hearts, pretty much strong will when it comes to fight and definitely strong will when it comes to protect someone, and fight for justice and rescue the world.
- Are said to be leadrers. Naruto's dream is to become a Hokage and protect his friends and village, as a leader. Tsuna has to become a mafia Boss in addition to protect his friends and family.
- Have to go through special training to gain enough experience. In addition of becoming stronger and fight for what they one day will achieve, you can see the character total transformation and how are they growing mentally and physically.
- Need to tame a *** beast.
In The Both Stories:
- Elements like Earth, Wind, Mist, Wind, Fire, Water... are used by characters in their fighting techniques.This is adding an unique quality to each character's personality and inner power.
- The character chakra/flame has a form of an animal, which along with the elements describes their individual personality.
the both have greats characters and are very fun
Both of the protagonist are starting as weaklings but is proven that they are the most powerful in their world.
Both anime feature a protagonist that is quite young
Both have great battles
Both explain battle strategies after used
Both of them are long shounen series with the major themes of growth, friendship, teamwork, and loyalty. The main characters seem to be immature and irresponsible at first, but when the right time comes, they turn out to be badass. While one of them aspires to be the pirate king and collects crew mates, the other heads toward being a leader in an infamous branch of the mafia and increases the size of his "family." As more episodes go by, the series and characters grow to become more mature and serious; the series start off kind of slow and overly immature, but once they get going they are both really interesting and rather addictive.
Whatever you do, don't overlook these anime series because of the fillers or the characters in the beginning!
A Lot Like In OP Yo Find Yourself Amazed By The Different Powers That The Characters Have In Each anime. As far as Character Personality Overlapping Is Concerned, I Feel There Is Quite The Amount.
A Fantastic Anime That Although Has Similarities To OP Has A Fair amount Of Differences, Such As Main Character Personalities, location and time Etc. The First 15 Eps Of KHR Are Rather Meh, In The Fact You See The Babies And Your Hesitant To Keep Watching. Watch Past This!! and You Will See Not Only The Story Unfolding And The Babies Getting purpose But Amazing Fight Scenes, A Definate Must See For All That Like OP.
They are very similar because in OP Luffy has his crew and in KH Reborn Tsuna has his familly.Both are very funny and awesome story and fights.
Both series involve the bonds of friendship, with One Piece involving the close relationships between the Strawhat crew while Katekyo Hitman Reborn! involving the close relationships between the Vongola 10. Within those both groups, the protagonists' friends are extremely loyal to their leaders.
Both main characters (Luffy and Tsuna) are extremely similar as they have the ambition to protect their friends.
Both have a vast amount of characters that have interesting and unique backgrounds.
Both series have a large amount of action and use of supernatural powers.
One piece is about pirates and KHR is about Mafia, kinda like that i sugest taht who ever liked one piece or Reborn to watch each other becouse the similiartys is the development wich i think KHR surpasses One Piece and for the respect and loyality that wich gaurdia or nakama as for the main protagonist wich they would follow the Boss/Captain to the end of the world if needed there are various differences but both contain awesome fights, good characters goodstory and awesome character development.
Both anime are about gathering and forming a group of people with different abilities. Both lead males are very strong and are dedicated and willing to fight for the protection of his friends. Both Lambo and Chopper have a childlike personality. Both Ryohei and Luffy have the similar traits of lacking intelligence and uttering their fearlessness. Both Hibari and Zoro are extremely intimidating since each can easily frighten weaker opponents with just his glare.
