Naruto inspired the manga Nabari no Ou. You might see some key similarities between them although later on, Nabari no Ou departs from the Naruto scene since it is set in the modern world. Ninjas are involved; even the main characters are the vessels of very powerful entities. There's a lot more action in Naruto though.

Similar main protagonists and art style.
Both characters are warped, used to live rather peaceful lives, have a dark past, trusts people easily, are hunted down for a reason/reasons, have a contract of somesort with someone/other, ect...
Many people try to recruit the main character (who is a skinny, weak-looking boy) to fulfill a "great destiny," even though he has zero interest, and pretends to be apathetic. Both have a traditional Japanese feel--Nabari is about modern-day ninjas, Izayakaku is historical.
Suspenseful stories, so many mysteries during the series, and both are centered on a power beyond God which was wanted by anyone who was aware of its existence. Both did great coloring on the art, the way their frames tell stories feel so similar.
You read that right. If anything, Nabari no Oh is more similar to Evangelion than Naruto by a loooooooong stretch. Both have existential conflicts revolving around well-intentioned but evasive and fragile main characters (Hedgehog's Dillema). Both are something of character studies; Eva around dissecting and deconstructing character archetypes of anime/manga and unveiling psychological illnesses and general diagnostics on their corresponding psyches, how their upbringings and the events that transpire over the course of the series affect these things, and how they become more primal and relatable problems to ourselves in real life. Meanwhile Nabari tackles the worldviews and ambitions of various characters with essentially the power of Instrumentality in reach had it been a commonly known thing; how they go about their lives and choose to change them be it past, present or future and how it will affect the lives of few or many, etc. Both involve identity crises with parental figures and how they alter the course of a child's development and personal identity. Both deal with transhumanism to a degree (won't spoil). Both deal with destiny and the repercussions of using children as tools of war. Both have a lot of intermingling details in characters, plot and setting merging in different (and subtle) ways affecting the course of each and every particular thing in various manners. So yeah, Nabari is actually surprisingly deep and far more reminiscent of Evangelion than Naruto as it is most often compared.
Both mangas have stunning artwork and touching relationships between main male characters
Both have to do with different clans chasing after the main character.(martial arts in breaker) (Ninjas in Nabari) Both main characters become a sort of ruler.
Lithe ninja-fighters. Main characters are a guy who takes it upon himself to watch out for someone who *seems* weak and apathetic.
The main characters both are almost completely unaware of why things are happening that seem to be centered around them. They also both have a power that they have little or no control over. They each also focus on a certain world, ninjas and medieval.

Even though one is still publishing and the other is a one shot, both are about ninja, and the main characters are pretty similar: a rather problematic kid and the guy who protects him/her no matter what. Both Jin & Thobari-sensei are handsome but awkward ninja that pretend to be teachers at the school of the above said kid, and Hime, despite being a girl, looks a bit like Miharu.
If Nabari No Ou was a shoujo manga, it would be Ichihime Ninja.
Both series are about a quiet, relatively antisocial, and seemingly normal boy who turns out to belong to a secret world living in harmony with the world we know without "normal" people knowing. It's hard to put my finger on it, but at times they seem to have a very similar atmosphere.
The art and the sort of action and fighting that takes place during modern day makes them seem similar. The mediators of Kure-nai are really similar to the ninjas in Nabari no Ou.
Has the same saddness, with a plot and an inkling of a darker tale underneath it all.
both of the main characters don't want to be the king's
their character is very similar
