The art in both mangas is very much alike. Also, there's always a going-on talk about 'Nakama'. The two main characters resemble each other (not to mention they're very random XD). In short, you will find many situations in Fairy Tail where you'll think "Omg this is just like One Piece!" ^____^
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.
I first read Fairy Tale before I took the plunge into One Piece because I wasn't impressed with the artwork. Fairy Tale is extremely similar in style and kind of plowed the way to enjoy One Piece, which Fairy Tale is like by the same theme of nakuma being everything and following your dreams.
Similarities between these two shounen serialisations include: characters with unique abilitites which they oftentimes use for combat; the emphasis placed on comradery; and a vast world for exploration. Moreover, both share very similar art and narrative styles.
The characters, and art are very similar, and both focus on action and adventure.
They are drawn the same way. There is a strong emphasis on friendship,the characters are enjoyable, and there is alot of humor. The fights are great and they do not drag on. all and all an enjoyable series that you should check out if you like shouen.
Art styles are similar, overall objectives of the main characters are slightly different. But their personalities are almost identical. With Fariy Tail its a mage guild working together, where as in One Piece its a pirate crew working together.
they both share similar themes of friendship and bonds. the also the art work is pretty similar as well.
Same Kind of Drawing - Same kind of main Character - Different Mangaka.
A pretty common recc.
But it's true, although the story line is a bit different, almost every character in both series share a resemblence with each other, not only that, there are fights which can me compared with each other, and several scenes almost look the same. The art style does look a lot the same too, after Mashima's earlier work, Rave Master, his art style got more devoted (and improved) towards Oda's style/work.
Very similar in art, humor, plot and everything goes around "nakama"
The art work is similar as well as the humor, bonds between characters and fighting. ^^ I'm sure that if you enjoy Fairy Tail you'll enjoy One Piece and vice versa.
the relationship between the characters, the humor, the unique world and the depth of the world and the characters.
Both series have similar art styles and similar senses of humor.
Both have a lot of action and fun, however the action in One Piece is more engaging than Fairy Tail.
One Piece carries a lot of human emotion as well, something Fairy Tail has yet to do.
Both have their own world (pirates and mages)and drawn about the same. Both have crazy power and action and both are looking for something. Both are pretty popular. They are both great reads.
For those of you who are fans of One Piece, I highly recommend reading Fairy Tail. The author of Fairy Tail used to be an assitant to Oda(Author of One Piece) thus they share many characteristics, especially artwork. Both series have great fights with equally great character designs. All the great fundamentals of an epic Manga like One Piece, with a different plot and set-up, are all the ingredients you need for a good read!
It's simmilar humor, so if you think One Piece is funny you will think that Fairy Tail is too. The main characters in these two mangas are alot alike, they are both rash, violent, loud and not so smart. This makes the manga very funny.
Similar lead characters and art but there's magic in Fairy Tail while there's pirates in One Piece :D
ther both about a group of nakama trying to futhfil ther dreen _the drawing looks aloke too!! becus the auther of fairy tail used to work with the outher of one piece ther bouth great full of adventure and comedy
Like in One piece, Natsu is a very powerful guy and very funny.
Either in One Piece and Fairy Tail, there are some guys (and Luffy and Natsu too) who have powers very cool.
If you like One piece, you surely love Fairy Tail.
These too go hand in hand, they even look the same. All to do with Nakama and all equally hilarious. One Piece is a bit better in terms of plot, but Fairy Tail have more badass characters
When I read Fairy Tail it seems to make me think of one piece. They are both similar in some way or another. Main character never gives up on his nakama and doesn't realize when to quit... you know.
both manga's have plots that have the main characters going on different adventures while aiming for a singular goal.
they both have similar themes of friendship and very simillar art work
The most similar mangas ever. The artwork is so alike, they have the same kind of epic battles, the main characters have the same attitudes and they will defend their bonds above any other thing.
similarities between the two
-the characters are alike
Fairy Tail is One Piece with magic, bigger breasts, more fan service, and also not quite as good.
It's got an awesome main character somewhat similar to luffy. It has a unique story arcs that will surely entertain you. It's very entertaining and will most likely keep you guessing. It can be random and odd at times (which is what keeps you guessing), but it has decent and relatable humor. The characters are all just as unique and interesting.It's a very creative and original anime that won't fail your expectations. It can be emotional and intense but that's what makes it so interesting.
This is one of the top manga out there for a good reason. don't be hesitant to go and check it out, you may even like it a lot more than you thought at first.
Both have really similar art styles for one. The initial main characters are really similar in personality and appearance. They also both have a lot of adventure and are about standing up for ones friends. The biggest difference is that one is about mages and one is about pirates.
same author and i think the story seems better so far.
Made by the same author, and both mangas have the character Plue in it.
Both have the same author,and the artwork at the end is almost same as that in Fairy Tail.
Great story with tons of lovable characters!
they are both by the same artist Hiro Mashima
same author, same manga style, and packed with action.
The same artist, almost the same art. Both stories take place in the same world. Some characters (like the little dog-something plue and Heart Kurz the fashion designer) appear in both mangas. Actually I prefer Fairy Tail but Rave Master ain't so bad. I just got bored because there are so many chapters (almost 300).
saem author, similar characters and lots of other similar things.
Groove Adventure Rave (AKA Rave Master) is the series that Hiro Mashima wrote before Fairy Tail. Currently slightly longer than Fairy Tail, G.A.R looks less like One Piece, has a shorter anime adaptation, but still shares many themes with Fairy Tail, most prominently the strong willed main character.
both of them were made by the same person. both of them have a good story about adventure, friendship and love.
Both manga series are drawn by the same mangaka. They are both action/adventure/comedy. While fairy tail has more silliness and ecchi element, rave master has more romance and coherent plotline.
Both mangas are made by the same person, some of the characters have similar appearances and personality
The one who drew both is Mashima Hiro! :D :D
Both story focus on fantasy adventure shounen. The main characters are whom you can call stupid, strong, and caring for his nakama. The female leads both have mystery surrounding their past, and unique last names!
So, They're really Similar indeed. Mostly by the fact that it's made by the same author, hehe (Hiro Mashima).
The Characters are very similar, I recognize some character from Fairy Tail in Rave* Vise-Versa, Althought not being the same. They still keep they're similarities. It is highly enjoyable if you liked any of them.
The stories are different for sure, otherwise it wouldn't be enjoyable.
But if you watched one of the both and you're looking for more. Then you should certainly watch the other one.
Both manga's have similar characters which in both manga's do quests to earn money, or just for fun. In Monster Hunter Orage there's more of a goal then in Fairy Tail, which varies from time to time.
Same author, so it has same drawing style. Shounen manga with fights, humour and nice plot.
Basicly it is about the same thing:
Guilds, creating a team, missions, master dead/disappear mysteriously, unique powers.
The similarity is probably because it is the same author.
Both manga's have the same author/artists and are equal on a lot of levels, like the characters, story influences/plotstuff etc.
- Both are written by Hiro Mashima.
- The bond of friends is told in both stories.
- Art is similar (made from the same Artist/Author).
- Endless adventure based on the nakama powah and fights plus power upgrades.
- A group of friends with powers with similar personalities (Ali/Natsu= energetic guy plus comic relief that gets fired up when its needed; Alladin/Wendy plus Lucy=A blue haired kid that seems weak but its not and its main goal is to make friends/ and is capable of summoning a helper(Genie/key spirit); Morgiana/Erza= serious and strong, fights like hell and has a tragic past related to slavery and bullying; Sinbad/Gray: Likes to strip a lot; Kougyoku/Juvia: has a crush on the guy that likes to strip and has the power of water, also suffers from a drastic personality change when is fighting and it used to be from the "enemy side" until she met the main gang).
- Enemies becoming friends/Friends becoming enemies
If you like one you´ll definitely enjoy the other;)
Both stories are set in different universe where one can use magic. Main characters develop strong bonds of friendship and will protect each other no matter what. Aladdin/Alibaba duo kinda reminds of Happy/Lucy duo when it comes to comic relief. One is the troublemaker and the other one usually throws punchlines. These two manga are full of adventures, journeys and fights.
READ MAGI!!!!! I'm pretty sure most people who read this recommendation have read Fairy Tail so I'm not going to say anything good about that manga because honestly if you don't know how good it is . . . you're lame.
Seriously though READ MAGI. Its an amazing manga that has the same vibe as Fairy Tail. I really dislike the fact that its not popular enough because honestly it should be extremely popular because its EXTREMELY GOOD.
Magi is a shounen manga. Its fantasy, action, adventure (it has really boss magic and weapons --- like Fairy Tail ---- and whatnot)
Let's start by saying this... Fairy tail and Magi are both similar in a lot of ways. They are both adventure stories filled with tons of magic. They are both comradery themed, and their basis is good vs. evil and protecting the ones you love.
Now they are different in plenty of ways too. Fairy Tail is more of an ensemble cast that Magi, but it is also further along. Magi focuses mostly on 3 characters so far but has plenty of supporting characters as well. Both are far superior to their anime counter parts, but they both have a fun adventure feel to them. Magi is heavily inspired from 1001 arabian nights, so it is interesting to see what was borrowed from those stories. Mostly character names more so than anything else, but they incorporate a few "details" from the stories as well. (ie. alibaba and his 40 thieves are integrated differently than the original, and especially Aladdin and his genie).
I find it hard to believe that if you like fairy tail you won't like Magi, so that's the main reason i recommend Magi if you loved Fairy Tail.
natsu the main character of fairy tail has many commons with naruto..also the story of fairy tail reminds me naruto..the way the characters help each other..etc
it's a cool manga..
There's a lot of Characters similarities.
Natsu, the main character in Fairy Tail, reminds me of Naruto. Who wants to be strong, and they're both seems obnoxious. Gray is a lot like Sasuke. The way they look and how he and Natsu don't get a long like Sasuke and Naruto. Erza is like Tsunade and Makarov is like the 3rd hokage.
Also in Fairy Tails they have guild while in Naruto they have Clans. ranked missions, unique abilities.
These two are very similar.
Both are action and adventure based. The main character fights to protect his friends. Funny and serious and sometimes make you want to cry. One of the four main: Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Fairy Tail.
Both mangas have a guy that can transform into a dragon (Natsu uses dragon slayer magic and Keel is actually a dragon in human form). There is a cute girl who uses other characters to fight (Lucy with her spirits and Ravi with monsters). "Blue" - the name of the water guy in "Buster Keel" is similar to Grey in Fairy Tail. Blue and Keel don't get along, just like how Natsu and Grey argue all the time.
In both mangas, there is also a guild for information and work and levels for each job.
In Buster Keel, the protagonist are all looking for someone. In Fairy Tail, Natsu is looking for the Dragon Igneel.
The characters and design, especially the setting, look pretty similar in both mangas, even though they are by different mangakas.
- Both have guilds.
- The team of main characters is similar to Natsu, Happy, Lucy and Gray.
- The main girl is from a rich family like Lucy.
- There are monsters and dragons in both mangas.
Same kind of world as Fairy Tail with adventurers forming a party to accomplish various missions. A lot of interesting powers and characters.
It is also similar to Groove Adventure Rave (Ravemaster) to some extent.
The greater similarity is probably the artwork though.
They both are action and adventure based. The main character fights to protect his friends. Funny and serious and sometimes you might feel like crying. One of the four main mangas: Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Fairy Tail.
Both have over the top cute girls design, character that loves to slap each other in da face and mangakas who never remove sunglasses. FT is a bit power up heavy, but if it doesn't bother you, it could become your second favorite.
Yoshikawa Miki was an assistant of Mashima Hiro when he was makin' Groove Adventure Rave, so that's what can see the evident influence that she got from him: The surprised faces, gags and the style of drawing (Macchi looks like Natsu for example)
Natsu, Gray and Erza are like the yankees in Yankee-kun to Megane-chan (Adachi, Shinagawa and Izumi), and there are someone who has common sense (Lucy & Chiba), they are in an Organitation who helps people with troubles (Fairy Tail Guild, and the Student Council)
Both mangakas, likes to draw werid characters (for example, the sun-face of Rave Ichiya, the girlfriends of Nerima or that strange teacher who teachs Shinagawa)
Yoshikawa and Mashima are very good friends too, that's why they make Fairy Megane, a crossover of their respective series.
Both have similar artwork and humor. Their stories are also appealing and addicting.
For some reason as I read Double Arts, Fairy Tail came into my mind. The stories aren't at all similar (FT is about the random adventures of a guild of mages/ DA is about two people who have to hold hands forever as they look for a cure for a deadly disease) but I felt a similarity in them. I believe it was mostly the characters, the way they acted and reacted to things. Also the setting of them seemed to be similar and the art is somewhat. Still if you like one then you should at least check out the other one.
Fairy Tail was probably influenced by Saint Seiya's concept of different types of constellation and levels of them like bronze/silver/gold, while strongest of them (gold) related to zodiac signs. Both contains a lot of fighting, but Saint Seiya is muuuch more serious and don't have any ecchi elements.
> Both have groups of 'warriors' with different skills - that being either magical or talent based.
> Both have medieval themes in costume design, weapons, architecture, landscapes, etc
> Both have a large character platform introducing new characters nearly every chapter.
> Both have good fighting scenes and art - where each panel is a pure joy to view and i find myself taking my time with each scene to take it all in.
> Both have simple plots constructed to deliver action upon action, heros fighting vilians and victories & defeats.
> Both have mild ecchi - big boobies, spray-painted costumes, etc
The main characters have special powers and allmighty friendship.
They also have similar personalities.
Both manga have action, adventure, comedy, fantasy and supernatural.
a lot of the characters seem similar to each other and they both have their share of Shounen manga cliches.
- Natsu and Dohran are fighters who care a lot about protecting their friends and uses fire-elemental powers (not to mention they even kinda look alike)
- Lucy and Anna are the fan-service female sidekicks who don't do very much and have problems that happen to their fathers (and they also kinda look alike)
- same kinds of adventurous feelings and happy to serious moods
- Dohran takes place in a fantasy-like Edo era of Japan and Fairy Tail takes place in a fantasy world
- No guilds in Dohran and it only has 2 main characters
- Dohran is more light-hearted than Natsu and is less willing to fight
Instead of magic powers, you have magic weapons lol
The fights, as well as the characters are very similar! The development of the story is also very identical! Many adventures and dozens of fights...
Worth to give it a try!
Toriko is like a more violent and mature version of Fairy Tail. Both feature weird looking characters with even weirder characteristics. Also, both have lots of fantastic animals and are shounen battlemangas.
it has the same sense of comedy a lot of action there both shounens and both the main characters are looking for someone & there also both supernatural
Although the aesthetic and narrative of these two serialisations are not that similar, they both share a strong emphasis on group battles. In Fairy Tail, battles are often between two or more guilds; whereas in Baka to Test, these are facilitated between two or more classrooms.
Lucy like Hana seeks her dream job, and also alike, they both find their dream job is filled with unrealistically bizarre characters. Both are fighting mangas, oumagadoki in a much more bizarre sense than fairy tail. Both are also Weekly Shounen Jump mangas.
I would say that fairy tail is done better but oumagadoki is the more creative concept. Fairy tail has been making manga for a lot longer as well. Oumagadoki was made in 2010
Ral Grad and Fairy Tail are both set in mythical world where people have magic, and they both center around a quirky guy and his rag-tag bunch. Ral Grad is shorter and a little darker, but still cute and funny.
In bouth are team's that complite missions and bouth teams are all than normal, but aspirin goes a littre more in extreme and comedy.
And bouth teams doesn't know how to hold back so peoples normaly hate them after complition of mission, since normaly half of town is missing.
And aspirin have worst possible personalitys for main characters.
Two of the main-story related characters, Tasha and Natsu relate with very similar characteristics and personalities, especially their ability to grow stronger through their emotions, and they both have a partner whom they share a close relationship, like a close family.
The main teams consist of a group that have known each other for a long period of time, at times being quite crude and violent with one another (Almost everytime, this is for comedic purposes), but in each group, the team are as close as family, willing to protect each other with their lives.
[PS: If you haven't read Fairy Tail, then I would recommend that you read Witch Hunter first. It's better to start off with the serious/moderately comedy, then heading for epic/highly comedic.]
