Naruto and Bleach both synomonous with action animes. when you hear bleach the next anime that you would think of would be naruto... if you like it that is. they both are epic anime with outstanding character devlopement and plots so intricate you might would who were the brillant minds to think of this (I did anyway...) also there is some comic relief, a little bit of romance, and tons of serious parts too. and they're great for anyone

When I first started to watch fairy tail it reminded me so much of both naruto and naruto: shippuden, the coolest thing about about is that every character resembled a character off of naruto, for example nastu would be naruto, gray would sasuke, Lucy would be sakura and so on, and they both hold a lot of susppense so if you like fairy tail you are definatly going to like naruto

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.

Both animes have a main character is determined and always optimistic and when they decide on a goal they stick to it and fulfill it with 100% and determination. Obviously before you watch Naruto Shippuden you'd need to try the first series of it which is also similar to HxH because there are exams at the beginning and minor enemies to fight off to improve strength etc.
Both are fighting shounen animes so overall Hunter x Hunter and Naruto/Naruto Shippuden are greatly similar in many ways.

Nabari no Ou is slightly more grown up and a modern 'way of the ninja' then Naruto. Both the main protagonist look alike, but Rokujo is more carefree and unknown about the whole situation he is in.

About Naburi no Ou: His English teacher and several students from the school protect him and theirselves from several enemies including ninja villages.
Scenery and animations have a more down-to-earth look and give a realistic feeling in some extend. Definatly worth a try, even if it's just for a few episodes. To get a feeling of 'Ohhh, there is more then just a ninja named Naruto  read more

Fullmetal Alchemist is very similar to Naruto. There main guys in FMA want to find out a way to regenerate their bodies and parts. In Naruto, the main guy wants to find a way be the best ninja ever and wants to became hokage which is the leading ninja of Konohana village. There are supernatural powers in both anime and the worlds of these anime are fantastic. Both are must-watch anime.

If you like Dragon Ball Z you'll love Naruto Shippuden. These are both the second part of amazing series. There both more high action to their original and go into further depth with the characters and story. The one part I like about Naruto Shippuden over DBZ is that the main character, even though may not get as much screen time, has a tremendously better backround and character development.

Tsuna and Naruto are both no-good at the very start of both series. The hairstyles, I also noticed. But KHR has a more unique design for character hairstyles and a lot more humor comperd to Naruto Shippuuden.There may be times when the plot gets serious in Shippuuden and Reborn, but I actually understand serious terms in KHR more than in Naruto Shippuuden. I'm not saying Naruto Shippuuden is so bad, just try watching KHR to keep you busy while waiting for the next Naruto episode. Trust me, it'll get you hooked! Katekyo Hitman Reborn is very amusing and addictive.

If you liked Naruto you would like Soul Eater because Its a bout 3 kids which are meisters and 4 weapons. Naruto is similar to the Character Black*star because Naruto claims he is going to be hokage and Black*star says he is going to surpass God. Also the Main Character, Maka is similar to Sakura. They both Bully their closest friends like how sakura punches naruto and Maka bullies her partner,Soul Evans who is similar to Sasuke also, Death The kid is sort of similar to sasuke. I don't want to spoil but it is really a good anime and you might be freaked out  read more

They both have an amazing storyline and attract about the same age group. The characters are the strong points in both series. They are emotionally touching and action packed, at times they can be a bit slow, but they always make it worthwhile.

Like Naruto, has all you can want in a Shonen anime...action,sadness,coolness,incredibly determined main character just like Naruto, and is similar to Naruto junchuuriki. If you like Naruto, you'll definitely like SnK ;)

Surprised nobody made this recommendation yet.

I'll keep it simple. Both series deal with ninjas with supernatural or enhanced skills.

Both stories involve conflict regarding terrorism, corruption, politics, family feud, war, peace, drama, and both the main character's (Naruto and Sasuke, Lelouch and Suzaku) quest and conflict are slightly similar but not exactly the same. Both are dark, morally ambiguous stories. Also there are dark, complex and twisty storyline where important things are only revealed slowly, epic plots, interesting character developments, the conflicted antihero, and the unexpected moments of comedy amid the action and intrigue.

While this might seem extremely far fetched, both series deal alot with the loss of childhood friendships. Everything else about each series is completely different, but if you're looking for some angsty drama about broken best friends, these two seem to be at the top.

Both main characters are supposed bad kids that turn out to be saviors of the world, turning into the strongest fighter.

Both shows involve three friends who are trying to save each other from "darkness" or "the wrong path." The two shows are also very similar in terms of character. Masaomi & Mikado are sort of like Naruto and Sasuke in a weird way. Both young men want to save or take actions in their own unique ways. While Anri is like Sakura, always upset and unable to decide what is best or what to do about her two friends fighting.

We must all divide in order to grow stronger and protect the things we cherish. Even with our childish personality, we shall destroy all those who bring harm to our friends. Our women are the strongest out there and they will dominate the competition. The affairs of other countries have nothing to do with us, until we suck them into our own personal problems. Our powers are feared and must be hidden so that we can minimize damage and save ourselves. Even if we destroy the people around us, we will grow strong enough to stop ourselves and our enemies.

Onizuka is not your average teacher. Instead of teaching normal lessons he's trying to make everyone realize the importance of being a good person before being a good student. Being a teacher is a serious responsibility and he has to struggle a lot against some undisciplined children. Still, like Naruto, he's very serious about his goals and won't give up till the very end thus succeeding in becoming a teacher despite the fact that he was a legendary gank leader before.

Naruto and Vash live a peaceful life and are feared due to their hidden secret powers. At first the story gets light hearted and funny but gets serious and dark later on and increases.

"Naruto: Shippuden" and "Beyond the Boundary Movie" / "Kyoukai no Kanata Movie: I'll Be Here - Kako-hen" surround a brash young male protagonist who has a powerful being within him that can cause widespread havoc if released. The being also grants him rapid regenerative healing and other powerful abilities when provoked or under extreme conditions.

In both series, people sacrifice themselves in order to protect the protagonist in order to ensure the safety of the world.

Both Naruto Shippuden and Yugioh 5D's are dark installments that are about shonen protaganists who is powerful and ends up getting stronger to protect their friends they value the most while shouldering the fate of the world that is waiting for them. At the same time they have feuds regarding the past, family relations, and what awaits them.

Both anime are based on manga published by Weekly Shounen Jump. Also, Kishimoto has cited Ninku to be one of the major inspirations behind his Naruto. This can be seen in the backgrounds and abilities of the main characters: both are skilled ninja, who combine ninjutsu with martial arts. Both Fuusuke and Naruto can use the wind element, and they have similar abilities, such as the substitution and clone jutsu, as well as their own version of Rasengan. Both anime also have similar vibe and comedy.

Both are essentially the same plot on one series takes place in a world of ninjas and the other series takes place in a world of super heroes and villains. The idea that they are going to become the top ninja or superhero. Also big casts are in each one where a bunch of people with unique abilities are all over the place.

Norse Mythology theme are in both shows as well as it's origin traced back to the old times. The conflicts between main characters, rivals, and antagonists are the same. Comedy and action are the same despite having dark moments. More importantly the plot isn't as simple as you think it'd be due to plot twists.

Both are centered on characters who have different desires (7 magicians and 7 servants) and (Naruto's, Sasuke's point of view and Akatsuki's) that involve conflict regarding wishes and desires that paces throughout the story only to be twisted by certain events that will change the story forever. Fighting in both shows aren't just action packed but methodical and strategical plus it is at the same level. Swordplay and other types of weaponry (mostly long range) are heavily involved.

Pein and Light Yagami (Kira) wants to rule the world through their God Complex like traits only to be opposed by Naruto and L in their respective shows. Both are different in terms of character's point of views to change the world in different ways. Only the main story in both Naruto and Death Note are centered in that. Madara and Mikami also have similar design and personality as well.

Interesting and entertaining fights of opposite factions. Many powers in Akame ga Kill! are the same powers shown in Naruto. There are a lot of similarities between the shows. Akame ga Kill!'s "imperial arms" are like the ninja techniques.

Ninja fights with weapons and the similar basic jutsu we love in Naruto like genjutsu, taijustsu, and ninjutsu. They have super powers with the main character posing as an idiotic funny guy who treasures his friends. Only its difference from Naruto is that it has a short plot (which turns into a more darker and mature theme in manga), concentrates more on battling with weapons, and shares almost equal limelight with its support characters. Rekka no Honoo is a more realistic version of a ninja.

Though the personalities of both main characters are different, as is the basic setting of the show, Naruto and Yuuri one important trait: an infectious and deliberate innocence. Both characters appear dense to the point of folly sometimes and ultimately gather friends around them who are willing to protect them from their own blind spots. However, as they grow and mature they both choose to ebrace their own innocence rather than becoming wiser and more jaded. It is their choice to take the hurt and pain of betrayal and ridicule rather than to embrace resentment, hate, or power that makes  read more

Shaman King is alright... I suggest reading the manga of Shaman King, in same case of FMA, while the manga was still being written both series ended in a way different to the manga.

Both main characters, Yoh and Naruto both are lazy and care about friendship and are powerful. They both have the power to change other's opinions about things.
They also have a common goal, Akatsuki (Naruto) and Hao's followers (Shaman King). They meet various incounters.

While they have different plots and overall tone, both anime deal with ninjas. Both heroes in both titles (Shishimaru in Black Lion and Naruto) must protect the people that they value the most while fighting off against evil. While Black Lion has much more violent and has more blood compare to both Naruto shows, they are both action-packed anime and are very entertaining to watch. If you liked Naruto: Shippuuden (or both Naruto shows), you may enjoy Black Lion.

A shounen with a, in my opinion, little more mature approuch than Naruto, sacrificing a little bit of fighting for a lot more psychology etc.
Also, Naruto has several influenses from this anime as far as i can see.
One major point of difference though is the fact that Hunter X Hunter is quite alot more fast-pased than Naruto: Shippuuden.

The protagonist's personalities are quite similar, that they both want to be strong and they're both quite rash, as well as that they both talk about the meaning of true strength.

Both series are really amazing and worth watching. For those who have seen or are familiar with Naruto, Ga-Rei has a similar character relationship as Naruto and Sasuke where these two kids develop a close bond like brothers (in Ga-Rei its sisters) and one turns against the other, forcing one to kill the other. Other than that, there is a lot of fighting and action.

Scryed has a story that is very comparable to Naruto Shippuuden. Kazuma is being hunted down by an organization, yet has the hidden power to retaliate. While the main focus in both Naruto and Scryed is on the hardcore fights that show off a lot of different skills, there is also a pretty gloomy story and a few mysteries to discover!

Both stories deal with mission basis as well as demons and mercenaries. There are slight similarities in some character comparisons (not all of them) as well as techniques but you'll just have to find that out yourself.
