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.

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...
Similar main protagonists and art style.
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.
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.

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.
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 of the main characters don't want to be the king's
their character is very similar
