Very high priority in both titles is loyality, trust and naming Nakama, main characters are near to each other. Very important is that, the both are just comedies.

One of non-many differences is that the OP is about pirates and FT is about mages :)

Personally i'm a huge OP fan since more than a decade and i have to say that it took me a while before actually giving a try to HxH 'cuz i wasn't sure if i would've liked it.. But. Woah against my expectations i really did like it more than i thought! Truth is that after i gave it a try, i couldn't stop watching it.
The more i was seeing it and the more it was giving me the same feeling that OP gives me. They have the same vibe and have the power to let you enjoyed more and more, this way  read more

Both are great shounen series with "fight for nakamas" plot, and goals characters have made their mind to accomplish. Also it looks like naruto somewhat resembles Luffy. If you enjoyed Naruto, I'm sure you will find One Piece amazing.

Both series are primarily light-hearted adventure-series, but they also both have some pretty serious moments. (Though in Dragonball, they're mostly in the last third of the series.) One Piece is also partially inspired by Dragonball.

Because bleach and one piece are both action,comedy and adventure animes. The main character is a young man and he has special powers. They both have their friends to support them. They're both long ongoing series and they both got many plottwists. And both animes has got a lot of boobies, rangiku from bleach, nami for one piece

Both of the anime series have a character that isn't the brightest of the bunch as the lead, and they both feature similar themes of being friends with each other, and rescuing one another from harm. Another very similar trait that they share is dreams, while Naruto wants to become the Hokage and Sasuke wants to become powerful enough to defeat Itachi, Luffy wants to become the Pirate King, and members of his crew share amibitions. One Piece is a must-see and by far one of the best shonen anime out there.

Toriko and One Piece share a massive world which is build up brilliantly. Both feature a great cast of shounen characters that develop strongly throughout the series in a series of adventures and missions.

Just as One Piece,Hunter x hunter is a pretty long shounen anime,both series can be really funny at times ,you will never get bored and always want to see the next episode,both anime have some awesome fights and also the characters are very likable,if you enjoy one of this anime you will most probably like the other one too.

They're both about friendship. There are also people with special abilities (Power Users in TLoU and those who ate the Devil's Fruit in OP). These animes are both shounen and main character is a little (maybe more than little) stupid.

Later in both animes the main characters form a 5-man team. They are also similar in some ways: Ueki -> Luffy (stupid, brave, friendly) ; Sano -> Zoro (strong, manly) ; Hideyoshi -> Usopp (liars, weak in combat) ; Mori -> Nami (not very strong in combat girls) ; Chopper -> Tenko.

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  read more

Gotta love the slapstick comedy. ^_^ One Piece has more of a story whereas Gintama is just comedic, but both very funny and enjoyable.

They are both about a long journey to accomplish a certain goal. And both have long stroy arcs. And the characters in both anime have sad background stories.

Arslan Senki and One Piece are both incredible stories of a boy who sets out on an amazing adventure in order to become king and gain freedom.
Both main protagonists are able to gain many followers as well as strong and loyal nakama to accompany them due there unique personalities.
Both anime have a great contrast of humor as well as great seriousness that go well together.
To anyone who likes One Piece you will definitely enjoy Arslan Senki the two anime are incredibly different but if 1 appeals to you the other is sure to do the same.

Both series have:
* Protagonists are introduced in a bar where a once merry/drinking mood is interrupted by baddie
* solid world building that creates a distinct world
* misadventures and exploration
* Unique art style combination with a touch of Dragon Ball
* Similar slapstick humor (how do you poop vs. groping/panties
* historic setting (pirates & knights) with a new spin on classic stereotypes
* a bright color pallet of settings
* a rag tag band of loveable misfits
* Light Hearted at first glance with a more darker and mature back-drop in the back
* Similar feel
* Battle Shonen

Both shows deliver tragic events for the characters to face with their strong bonds of friendship to pull them through and the excessive use of the term "Nakama"

Similarities:
-Male lead who wants to become great.
-Many characters have special powers. (Quirks in Boku no Hero, Devil's Fruit Abilities in One Piece)
-Not too childish but not too adult.
-Beautiful art.
-Very fun.

When I first started watching One Piece I thought "wow, this is like a mixture between DragonBall and Pokemon."
- main characters are similar (kinda slow, don't give up, their hats, their hopes & dreams)
- strong theme of friendship, dreams and never giving up
- similar art style and very similar music
- lots of travelling and seeing new places
- each new crew member in One Piece is like a new Pokemon or team mate is Pokemon
If you like Pokemon you will hopefully like One Piece and vice versa

Both are shounen anime involving both comedy and action where bonds between nakama are really important.

Tatsumi Oga is a delinquent and carries around a naked Demon Baby, whereas Luffy is a rookie pirate that's aiming to be the Pirate King. Sure... there's a large difference, but both are very comedic and there is action in both animes. :)

Adventures of a wanted outlaw team against many dangerous villains, in a fantasy world, where there are many monsters and strange creatures, but also a lot of different powers: Akame ga Kill!'s "imperial arms" are like the "devil fruits"' powers.

It's all about swords, fights, islands, treasures and adventures.

Both are shounen action anime with carefree and independent main characters who nevertheless have a strong loyalty to their friends. Also I found much of the humor in both to be more situational and less slapstick than in your typical shounen genre show (though each definitely has it's share of both types.)

They're somehow similar...
1st- they're wanted. yup. in one piece luffy's gang is wanted too, right?

Also, somehow the character designs are alike, especially the crazy facial expressions, large mouths, etc.

They have the same strong adventure shonen feeling.

Both series give off a similar feeling of an epic endless adventure.
Outlaw Star however, was only 26 episodes long.

Charimastic leads building up their crews, great female characters (somewhat rare in today's shounen titles), similar settings (Government, Criminals and Bounty hunters).

Luffy and Joe are similar in a few ways. They're really strong, have a lot a cool tricks up there sleeves, protect their friends, and are really funny. With both Luffy and Joe, when I first started watching they both came off as annoying but i grew to love 'em both.

Other than that VJ and OP both have great action scenes and a decent plot.

luffy and izayoi both want to find adventure/fun in the world both have power and both of them are crazy.

izayoi is more of a combination of luffy (the search for fun aspect), zoro (the fact that he is a badass), and sanji (the fact he is a bit perverted).

These series both have very detailed fantasy worlds that pull you in. They're also the best ongoing shounen manga right now. One piece is still better, it's got a lot more content which helps with character development and world building. 
report Recommended by StrawhatSabo
- The protagonists Luffy and Touma are both all about protecting and saving others regardless of any consequences. They both have limited amount of power but somehow manage to survive many fights against most powerful villains. They continue to grow with each battle and gain new companions in their journey.
- Both are compromised mostly of comedy, action, and fantasy elements

Both have:
a really really great story, and unique characters..
really strong characters that develop/ get stronger/smarter over time
Epic battles that have you at the edge of your seat & make you want to watch the next episode
Awesome char design that gets better over time.
A friendship priority in their story.

Eiichiro Oda the maker of One piece was assistent to Nobuhiro Watsuki the writer of the manga Rurouni Kenshin. So that's why you can se the strong spirit in both of the series.

Ore Monogatari!! and One Piece both have the same kind of fun humour and stories. You get involved in the story and it's easy to get excited!
While One Piece is a shounen adventure story, Ore Monogatari!! has a completely different set of genres; shoujo romance. It's not your typical shoujo romance, mind you, it's full of genuine comedy and good characters.

So, if you're watching One Piece and craving a shoujo that doesn't feel like All Those Other Shoujo Animes™, try Ore Monogatari!! You'll be positively surprised! 8~D

I think Akatsuki no Yona is a Shojo version of One Piece. It have adventure, action, and comedy like One Piece, and it also have romance while One Piece haven't. Both main characters recruiting more strong ally as the story goes by, the supporting characters are also have their unique powers. In the end, JaeHa = Sanji.

The main leader protagonists of these series (Bell / Luffy) are in pursuit of adventure. They are able to draw friends and comrades to their side rather easily. They each form small groups (a party / a pirate crew) in order to go deeper in their respective adventures. They get extremely stronger as the series progresses, and also have a personal strength benchmark that they're aiming for (Bell wants to catch up to Aiz, while Luffy wants to surpass Shanks). Both are disgusted by their own weaknesses.

Great action, funny, awesome fight scenes. Overpowerd characters, cool attacks etc. And if you're liking the animation in One piece, try One punch man. In my opinion One punch man has the best animation i've ever seen.

One punch man is a much shorter serie, it doesnt have as good as a story as one punch man. Not as great as character development as one piece does. BUT, one piece is one of a kind. No serie out there that I've seen comes near the adventureous and unique story of one piece. So dont try too hard finding a serie that  read more

Both main characters have the same goal: become the best of their worlds. While in Pokemon they travel in the lands, challenging people and dealing with the bad guys, in One Piece they travel in the sea, dealing with the bad guys and the ones that should be considered the "good guys". Both animes are slow, but will give you a weekly dose of entertainment

Both series tells about a adventure around the world (from Japan to Egypt in JoJo and from East Blue to Raftel in One Piece). Similiar fightinig abilities and the main characters have both a funny grandpa who has a lot great fights in the past. And in main crew of both are a Frenchman who is nice to ladies.

They both have the same brand of humor. Additionally, both can draw you into the emotional moments of the story. Luffy is on a quest to become King of the Pirates, Ippo is on a quest to become stronger (aka, win the world feather weight championship). The composition, the mix of humor and seriousness, is the same. It doesn't really have similar setting and world , but that feeling you get from both anime are the same. Both are as great of a shonen series as the other.

Both anime are a battle royal where everyone is trying to survive and progress,
In K it's trying to promote your king so that he gains the power of all the kings.
In One Piece it a similar concept keep your king alive and get him to the end of the ocean, to become the pirate king.

A lot of people may think why would I relate these two anime, but they both do have a lot in common. If you're looking for a great comedy, epic fights and simply an entertaining time where you'll always be wanting for the next episode, if you've seen one of these, the other is a must definite. Both shows pack in so many hilarious moments in between their emotional and epic plotlines.

One Piece is the ultimate adventure story whereas Accel World isn't as bold or ambitious with the scope of its world, it does successfully characterize adventure and villains nicely. With regards to style and plot line not much is the same. Although accel world does have similar humor, a funny main character, and is largely about the bonds of friendship overcoming hardships. Accel world develops its characters adequately within a timely manner but always leaves a question about their past to be answered at a later date so that you can be kept questioning, similar to certain situations in One Piece anime and manga.

Although Kekkaishi is more serious in several ways, and does a better job with animation and effects, One Piece is a shounen which can be compared to One Piece, tho' the size of the setting is different (as in huge and not huge :P).

Well, in One Piece, Luffy and his nakama look for One Piece and in Wolf's Rain Kiba and his nakama look for Paradise. Both one piece and paradise are like legends but the main characters believe the legends and look for it. In both anime you can see the bond between comrades and how deep it is. Both contains a lot of good fighting scenes. In both animes, the main characters are not normal, one is about pirates and one is about wolf. Of course one piece is much lighter than wolf's rain but if you like either one, you'll like the other for sure!

Leadership is a very difficult thing. Someone says you can’t learn it but only gain from God. For Luffy and Tylor it's absolutely true. Main screen time they acting like fools without realizing what’s really going on, but when time comes they somehow managing to turn everything for their own benefit. Two desperate heaven-born captains definitely put these series together.

If One Piece’s length and Captain Tylor’s release date doesn’t scary you go ahead and watch them. You won’t be disappointed because a great comedy is a one more reason to unite these series.

Bobobo-bobo bo-bobo and One piece share similar humor. Both have lots of action. Both are not so serious (bobobo is not really serious at all). Both are amazing!!!

Differents:
Bobobo uses his friends as shields most the time. Where Luffy has strong feeling for protecting his friends.
