Manga: Fairy Tail
Both have a similar character art style and talk big about friendship or "nakama." And both main leads are general idiots most of the time, both are great. 
reportRecommended by Karura
Manga: Toriko
Imaginative characters, locales, and animals are highlights of these two series. Both are fun to read due to the creativity of the authors. 
reportRecommended by radiantfire
Manga: Naruto
Two people both struggling to become stronger. They each go through trials and tribulations to get to their "goals". Action, martial arts, each are action packed with both. 
reportRecommended by Xinil
Manga: Hunter x Hunter
The main character Gon and Luffy are very similar. They'd do anything for their friends and they arn't the smartest people in the world. Also they are both searching for something. 
reportRecommended by RandomAzn
Manga: Kubera
Both manga have a lot of funny characters and a very interesting storyline 
reportRecommended by iYana
Manga: Dragon Ball
Mixes humour with fantastical action-adventure storyline. Unlike a lot of shounen, not every character is a teenager; you have a mix of ages and backgrounds (so again, not everyone is at school or some form of ninja school...) which adds a richness to the setting and a feeling that it's more than just generic wish-fulfilment crap like Bleach and Naruto.

Manga: Nanatsu no Taizai
A classical adventure set up where the main characters are "the bad guys", criminals wanted by the government. Very traditional shounen, with the typical battles, special abilities and powers, and character's dreams. Very enjoyable.

Manga: Bleach
It's endless, awesome and really funny. You can't help but love the main characters stupidity and intelligence. 
reportRecommended by ChibiAyane
Manga: Kingdom
With a lot of action and detailed story, One Piece and Kingdom has many similarities with each other. Both series follows a main male protagonist who has a set goal in mind. There is a lot of characterization present in their story. Additionally, relationship building and background stories are a pivotal point to both series' success. Expect plenty of plot twists, fighting tactics, and a world with vast capabilities.

Manga: Soul Eater
They both have the same feel and comedy. Soul Eater is about shinigami's and One Piece is about pirates but their comedy and the idea of pushing ones self to be great is seen in both mangas. If you like One Piece you will defintely like Soul Eater and vice versa.

Manga: Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic
It begins as an epic adventure with friends travelling, from island to island, from dungeon to dungeon, but soon it becomes a bigger issue that involve world domination, civil wars and abuse against the weak.

Manga: Groove Adventure Rave
- Similar feel from the characters
- One leading a large group on a quest of epic scale
- Good development for all main characters
- Many one on one 'boss' fights
- Fighting for great morales, saving the day

Manga: Katekyo Hitman Reborn!
Although the theme of Reborn! and One Piece are entirely different, the values they represent are quite similar. For instance, you have the whole concept of "family" in Reborn! which complimenets One Piece's notion of a "nakama". Another similarity is that you have various organisations - different mafia groups in Reborn! as oppose to different pirate groups in One Piece. In addition, each character, in both mangas, tends to have a specific way of fighting. Thus, highlighting another similarity found between Reborn! and One Piece. 
reportRecommended by radiantfire
Manga: Ares
both have a good story telling and lots of action. although the action in Ares is more fast pace and has less senseless talking in the middle of a fight sequence. and the art is more of a sketch then One Piece but once you get used to the art you may realize that it gives more depth to the fight sequences.

Manga: Metallica Metalluca
Both the main character wants to become a character of their dreams, with similar art style.

Manga: Hajime no Ippo
-Colorful characters
-Epic scale
-Hilarious comedy
-Lots of machismo
-Great characterization

Manga: Beelzebub
Honestly speaking, if you were to combine Zoro and Luffy into one person (characteristics) you would probably get Oga Tatsumi which is the main character of Beelzebub. Oga's close hand combat will remind you of Luffy's way of fighting and his special rubber attacks for an example the rocket punch later seen. The eyes of seriousness and his attention span is very similar to Zoro's characteristics to the point you'll feel like it's some sort of dejavu. Ah and Zoro's green hair is also applied to the infant. Coincidence? Perhaps. Anyways I highly recommend this to any One Piece lovers. The stories are different however  read more

Manga: Berserk
Both utilize epic plots with extensive foreshadowing and subtle development as well as taking a slower pace to give focus to adventure, fantasy and character development.

Manga: Monster Hunter Orage
The cast of main characters have a lot in common, both main characters set out on a journey for a certain goal, only to make more friends and comrades to join them.

Manga: Magi: Sinbad no Bouken
Taking place in a world with near limitless potentials, One Piece and Magi: Sinbad no Bouken follows the adventures of a daring protagonist who is not afraid to take risks. Both series adapts their journey while meeting allies and enemies. The main protagonists' personalities are also quite similar and often gets caught into conflicts by their own actions. Both series also adapts shounen style fights in spectacular fashion.

Manga: Hungry Joker
Eating a specific fruit in both of these manga that will give you a power. shares genres; Action Comedy Shounen 
reportRecommended by Agent_Chimp
Manga: Defense Devil
Both are mainly focused on comedy and action. Altough Defense Devil has a much more darker tone than One Piece, they explore similar themes and ideas (such as nakamas, jutsice, etc).

If you're a shounen lover, you'll definitely enjoy both of these series

Manga: JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken Part 7: Steel Ball Run
Both manga have the main heroes going on adventures to receive a grand prize (the legendary treasure in OP and the $50 million in SBR). They also have distinct/strange art styles, plenty of quirky characters, insanely creative powers, and government conspiracies. 
reportRecommended by Nei-san
Manga: 20th Century Boys
The main plot of both these series convey the meaning of friendship and trust. Both the main protagonists have their true friends as their supporting force.  
reportRecommended by Ashcom
Manga: Full Ahead! Coco
The style of action in One Piece and Full Ahead! Coco is very similar, featuring lots of intense attacks from a cast of pretty silly, likable characters. The character design in One Piece is perhaps a bit sillier, but the two series tend to scratch that same itch. Most of all, though, the pirate atmosphere in each series is also very similar, with a focus on comradery and togetherness.

Manga: Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE
A group of people go on a journey to find something, by traveling to many different places (worlds). Characters gain many things, experience new things, and deepen bonds with others. Both reads can get emotional at times, confusing at some times, and fun at many times. Characters are similar to one another, there is a swordsman, an animal, and one who uses kicks in each group.

Both reads are enjoyable, if you've read one and enjoyed it, you may like the other.  
reportRecommended by Chierii
Manga: Detective Conan
While at a first glance these manga seem to have almost nothing in common, a person who enjoys One Piece will certainly enjoy reading Detective Conan. Both stories have well-developed characters that the readers will undoubtedly be rooting for; both have a main protagonist that fights for what he believes in, regardless of the danger that may come or the people who may be against him; and both have a central storyline that is suspenseful, moving and impossible to ignore. If you enjoy One Piece's mysterious Void Century and the corrupt nature of the World Government, you will most definitely enjoy Edogawa Conan's adventures.

Manga: JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken Part 3: Stardust Crusaders
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.  
reportRecommended by Joseph-Jones
Manga: Fantasma
Fantasma is a new series, but seems to me to be quite similar to One Piece. Both involve main protagonists whose main goal is to become the top of their field, both involve humorous story telling and action, and both seem to be targeted at a teenage audience.

Manga: Esprit
The adventure from Island to Island (Home), & Characters with unique power (Jinx) Storyline & Character is also similar.

Manga: Ginga Tetsudou 999
The reason i decided to mark them as similar is a thing that takes place so much only in these two franchises from everything i ever saw - antivilains. Both Luffy and Tetsuro like playing role of Jesus by forgiving "bad" guys, making them actually appear to be the "good" guys.

Mister 2 sacrificed himself more times than actually Luffy; Buggy, Crocodile, the son of the Axe-Hand guy and eventually the Axe-Hand guy himself, you remember, they all are now good, don't ya?

In the Express 999 you literally feel sad for every villain killed by the protagonist, when they give him  read more

Manga: Croket!
Croket is another awesome fantasy battle shounen with bizarre character design (that works!!) just as in One Piece. Number one recommendation!  
reportRecommended by mastertek
Manga: Arata Kangatari
Action/Adventure where both protagonist venture to unknown land in search for artifacts. Meeting various people with abilities and gaining comrades/allies along the way. Arata tends to focus more on the character development whilst One Piece is much focus on the adventure and battle though both share common theme.

Manga: Ueki no Housoku
Both anime's deal with several of the same issues, tho', they're done completely different. Main characters both use long-distance attack in almost the same style, while most of the characters look a like, and the plot has some issues that are the same. Both are completely different, yet, they give off that same vibe. 
reportRecommended by Ilyaoh
Manga: Konjiki no Gash!!
Both are to do with the main character wanting to be a king and also having to fight will a variety of people with different skills along the way. They have a similar feel to them, even though they are two completely different worlds. 
reportRecommended by XyaoiX
Manga: Lindbergh
Pirates, adventure, and friendship are the main themes of Lindbergh and One Piece. Lindbergh follows a crew of "sky pirates" on a wondrous journey, while One Piece has sea pirates. Lindbergh has a main character called "Captain Shark" who resembles some characters in One Piece for literally having shark teeth. Both manga are full of endearing characters that leave a lasting impression. The protagonists in both manga explore a fantastical world filled with old legends and strange creatures.

In both of these publications, what we are introduced to is a fantastic and imaginative world abundant in culture and people.

Manga: Air Master
These two series are different in a lot of ways, but they have a few things in common. For one, both have heavy doses of high quality action and comedy. In both manga, the comedy and the action are often intermingled to the degree that it's hard to separate one from the other. Both manga have somewhat ridiculous characters. Finally, the art quality in OP and AM increases substantially over time, and both art styles take some getting used to. Neither is the typical manga style.

From what has been scanlated so far, I think Air Master  read more

Manga: Kagijin
Well altough the feeling is not pretty much the same till now, you may find a lot of similarities with one piece. If you like stories that revolve around "nakama", wanted posters and a party of people that try to fight the evil this is another good answer for the " what to read next " dilema!

Manga: Banana no Nana
Banana no Nana and One Piece have quite a lot in common, although both are rather unique and enjoyable in their own way. It starts out with a promise made in their childhood with a fatherly figure. For Luffy it's the promise with Shanks to be a pirate and surpass him (and find One Piece). For Nana and Ringo its the promise with Ringo's father to travel the world (and find Oz). At the age of 16 they all set out on an epic adventure, but soon have to face the first obstacles on their way to freedom. Both, Luffy and Nana, have seemingly - and comparatively  read more

Basically Luffy and Sawamura are wayyy too similar.

Both titles focus on a baselessly confident mc trying to accomplish something that everyone else finds impossible. They share a large focus on camaraderie between characters.

Manga: Noblesse
This may seem like a far-fetched recommendation but really One piece and Noblesse do have things in common. For example both mangas:

Luffy gets enemies to be his friends ~ Rei gets enemies to be his friends
Frankenstein is a loyal friend to Rei ~ Luffy's crew are loyal friends to Luffy
Main characters (Rei and Luffy) are always causing trouble for their friends
Friends usually fulfill outrageous eccentric demands of main character (master/captain)

Overall both One piece and Noblesse have gag and are HILARIOUS. You'll be laughing out loud in front of your computer screen which in turn causes your  read more

Manga: Ao no Exorcist
They don't have similar characters, they don't have similar story lines but what they do have in common is what makes them both so good! They're both well written, both have good plots and both have good amount of characters that have their own stories! If you have read one, then try the other, you definitely will not be disappointed.

The art style is somewhat similar. So is the humor. Lot of exploration in it. Luffy is very similar to Kakashi in personality. The leader of Man Chicken is similar to Red Haired Shanks. Nami is similar to Dorothy. Artifacts are slightly similar to the fruits.
