As well as Naruto, Fairy Tail is going to be the next big thing in anime. Somehow it gives me the same feeling as I'm watching Naruto. There are a lot of characters, a lot of funny moments, and I'm looking forward to the next episode! So I think that if you like Naruto, you may like Fairy Tail too!
Both are shounen with heroes who are a bit slow. In Fairy Tail, Natsu is a bit more competent, but both he and Naruto serve as comic relief at times. Both Natsu and Naruto also have a strong loyalty to their friends. Both characters were also have a small sense of being cast aside because of something that happened in their pasts.
Friendship, loyalty and a mix of love is w00t these two animes have in common.
Not to mention they all have a huge variety of characters, all with differrent kewl techniques and powers. Both shows also finds a good way of mixing humor at the right time, but still manages to keep up a good suspense when needed.
Also, the three main characters have huuuge resemblances.
Both talk a lot about friendship as being important, the action is also similar. Naruto is more dramatic than fairy tail though, but fairy tail makes up for this by being hilarious XD. Both are also must sees in the anime world no matter what genre you're into, to be honest if you watch anime you probably know what Naruto is anyway lol, but still Fairy Tail, in my opinion is equally as awesome!
Both anime have similar characters, natsu ... naruto , gray ... sasuke ,lucy ... sakura , and similar powers like earth,wind,wather,lighting and fire magic (jutsu) , for example natsu use fire magic like sasuke use fire jutsu , erza use weapons like swords and throw them like ninja throw there kunai and so on.if you like fairy tail then you certainly you will like naruto.
Both have amazing characters, with both knowing the pain of losing people important to them (Naruto & Natsu). They both are hot headed and never back down from a challenge. It contains a lot of battles and awesome quotes and characters and you really should watch the both of them!
The cast is very similar in that they also find a way to win and never give up.
Both series are set in a similar environment (Guild Hall/Hidden Leaf Village)
Both series have the main characters going on missions to earn money and make the village/guild stronger.
They both end up having fights with the others Guilds/Villages
Both series are very good and I highly recommend watching one if you like the other. You definitely wont be disappointed.
Hot-headed, fiercely protective, always wanting to throw down in a battle of skill... Remind you of someone? Naruto Uzumaki? But also, Natsu Dragneel from Fairy Tail.
Both characters are in search of something.
For Naruto it's a place in the village, for Natsu, it's his adoptive father the dragon, Igneel.
I believe that both animes are quite alike and with similar supporting characters (Sakura from Naruto and Lucy from Fairy tail), although the story isn't alike, both are about taking risks for friends and protecting the ones you love, while fighting for what is right.
Both are shounen anime that focus mostly on humor and action, as they follow a group of main characters who go on quests trying to fulfill their missions. Both have many similar elements, such as fighting techniques and power-ups, fighting tournaments etc. Both have the same vibe and atmosphere.
Characters have special magical abilities.
People divided into groups (For example- Fairy Tail: the Fairy Tail guild. Naruto: the hidden leaf village.)
Some groups are good and some groups are bad.
Focus's on one particular group who fight evil.
Naruto and Natsu have similar personalities.
The groups split into smaller teams to go on missions.
Fairy Tail was without a doubt a more interesting and character/relationship building anime than Naruto. I feel that Naruto gets repetitive and there's too many filler episodes, whereas in Fairy Tail every episode is exciting and you start to feel attachment towards characters. Fairy Tail brings out more emotions in the viewer than Naruto would and the Fairy Tail music is much better than Naruto's music, however the sound track for both anime are great. read more
Not only is Fairy Tale on its way to being one of the biggest anime series compared to Naruto, both series share the same atmosphere, fight scenes, and comedic moments. The similarity between magic and Ninjitsu in both series are also quite similar.
Taking place in an imaginary world where the Earth is inhabited by magic guilds, with each possessing their own significant abilities. One guild stands out the most as the most menacing, reputing guild in the land for completing tasks set forth before them.
Which is why a young girl named Lucy wants to join them, because they're the best at what they do and she feels she can develop very well into a mage. read more
-Both are adventurous type of anime where there is a new adventure/task they have to finish every few episodes
-Natsu and Naruto are very similar...Both act before they think but its always either to save their friends or to simply get into a fight because they believe it's fun/want to show off
-While Fairy Tail and Naruto give off the same atmosphere Naruto may be a bit darker/serious at times
Both long shows which are easy to binge, there's a coherent plot with fillers and there's a dumb main character that gets stronger by almost being defeated. They save the world a couple times and the power of friendship pulls them trough
Both are great shounen series with "fight for nakamas" plot, and goals characters have made their mind to accomplish. Also it looks like naruto somewhat resembles Luffy. If you enjoyed Naruto, I'm sure you will find One Piece amazing.
With the main characters wanting to become the best at what they do and wanting to protect those that are precious to them. Wanting to achieve their dreams, they become more powerful and meeting more friends along the way too.
(its pretty similar aside from the famous Naruto filler)
you can find the action piling up in this anime series as it also filled with nothing but action and adventure and many more of the Drama and comedy moments that will surely bring you to tears and laughter....
The mood of the series is pretty similar and the goal of the main characters is to be the best in their league. That's what I noticed when I completed Naruto and began with One Piece. If you liked Naruto you might like One Piece even better.
Two people that have their own goals and dreams. The main characters for both show are very similar. They are very clumsy, lazy, and funny, but when it comes down to protecting their friends from danger, they get serious. Both is filled with excitement, action, adventure, comedy, and fantasy.
I really like onepiece because it tells the classic story of the hero archetype, i like the refreshing way in which the story is told and the way the crew overcome obstacles, i would rank naruto and onepiece joint first in my favourite animé due to the hilarious humour and invigorating take on a well known character archetype.
Shonen anime. About a young hero who wants to become the best. Similar messages about friendship and determination to reach your goals. Characters fight using their super powers to defete evil villians who stand in thier way.
If you can replace Pirates with Ninjas and vice versa, Naruto and One Piece are a lot alike with the exception of art. Naruto=Luffy (Both pretty slow and oblivious to a lot of things, but pretty badass at fighting and can be brilliant in combat), Hokage=Pirate King (Both main characters strive to be the best in the world and their dream is often looked down upon or acknowledged by various people). Both series are very humorous, deal with characteristics of friendship/teamwork and have intense fighting.
These are both huge battle anime, where the main characters both have a huge goal, Luffy wants to find One Piece and become the Pirate King, and Naruto wants to become the best Hokage ever. Also, at the beginning of the series, Naruto and Luffy are very alike, causing mischief as they go along. Even though Luffy hasn't changed that much over all these years, Naruto has matured way more and has become more serious, now that the series is nearing it's climax.
In both anime protagonists continue to go on a life with the dream which was defined in their childhood. And which has strongly changed their life. It helps them to meet new friends and as to overcome the difficulties arising on their way.
In both anime the main character has the promise, given to the friend, and as" likes to eat ". xD
In both anime very interesting abilities of heroes, their characters, charisma. And as the important place is borrowed with friendship and fidelity.
At both anime as there is a lot of humour, the cat well dilutes many heavy situations occuring during adventures of characters. So despite of all duration of anime to look them it is a pleasure. read more
Shounen, action, adventure manga, both with a main character who wants to fulfill their dreams. Both of them have many special combat elements and a similiar story line as getting new friends, win against enemys, some drama sequence etc.
All in all I find that One Piece stands more out, but give Naruto a try!
Luffy is very similiar to Naruto. They´re both really childish characters with the biggest dream in mind.
Even though they act like an idiot most of the time (not a bad thing), when their friends are in danger they give all they have to save them.
There is in both an ero-dude. And there are people who were villains but eventually become nakama.
Both are awsome shounen series,has pretty much the same premise.The idiot main character then gets serious when it's needed,comedy,action,and characters you just hate to not love -__-.One Piece is not very story driven at all but is very enjoyable,while Naruto has a developing plot after the first 13 or so episode.If you liked anyone of these check out the other you'll love it.
Both protagonists have an ultimate similar goal they want to achieve. Fighting lots of enemies along the way and many great adventures. Humor and action are prominent in both series. If you like one you'll like the other.
Both have a main character that gets stronger throughout the story. Both main characters are sort of idiots. Both main characters fight to protect their comrades. There is a lot of comedy, and the fighting scenes revolve around honor and doing the right thing.
One piece is about pirates, and Naruto is about ninjas. They are both extremely long running, and they are both "gateway" anime. If you love one, then you typically will love the other one in my experience.
Both are unique in a lot of ways, and both are heavily inspired by Dragon Ball.
First of all, I started to watch both anime because of their first endings. Naruto ending is incredibly true&sad at the same time, even if - at the first sight - the story doeasn't look very smart it's deeper then you think - just watch first two seasons! One Piece first ending I also liked because of the song (it's catchy).
On the other hand it's easier to start watching One piece than Naruto, because like I said before, Naruto's story at the beginning looks pretty dumb. Much dumber than One Piece's ;D
BUT I like both these anime :) (much more Naruto <3)
•both are a shounen series,
•both main protagonists are a knuckleheaded, never give up, i will conquer my goal/dream type of person
•both males as the anime progresses through each episode, collect new friends and enemies along the way towards their goal they must achieve to be the best
•both have the never give up attitude with their super natural powers, to help good and conquer evil and be the best in the world
•there dreams as kids help them progress further to be more braver/stronger/protect friends
•they are a similar in a child sense yet mature way of portraying it, with the adventure and action. read more
Both series are long running (lots of episodes) series that center around action and fighting. The main characters are very good and the stories are very profound. Both characters don't have their parents with them anymore. They want to become stronger . The reason i just can't stop watching these series is because you can see the characters become stronger and stronger episode after episode.
Kind of common sense really.Along with a few other anime Naruto and One piece would be considered 2 of the 5 kings of long running anime. And by long running i mean 100 or so episodes. Anyway both anime are very similar in characters however luffy is strong but stubborn however Naruto acts dumb but when in tough situations he is quite the tactician. I'm one of those people who never really liked anime's such as death note. So yeah, it should be easy to fall in love with both anime. I will sow this however, both anime have a story which i would consider unique and leave others in the dust. Naruto may seem boring to others however it's watchable in my opinion. Where as one piece is always a laugh. read more
Both series involve a young character with one big dream; Naruto: to become a hokage and Luffy: to become pirate king. Both characters are also not taken seriously and doubted at first regardless of how much potential they have.
Both animes have a wonderful cast of characters and part of the big three (One Piece, Naruto, Bleach). They're both long running shonens capable of telling a great story, although it might be a bit slow at first.
Both main characters are very active and hyper, giving the same tone to both.
Both stories revolve around one boy putting up a goal and trying to achieve along the course of the story.
Both are apart of the Big 3 and long running shonen battle anime.
The fights are really intense but
naruto as more dialogue in the story.
though the styles are totally different there yet the same
every average anime watcher will find himself in a dilemma on which he should watch.. i suggest both !
there both funny, yet serious but then again... also Cruel and theres drama..
they both got em all :D
It has action, adventure, love and even some comedy which is what makes these two anime seem so similar. But there are some differences of course, however the 2 characters kurosaki Ichigo and Naruto have extremely similar personality traits such as their will to protect those around them and their will to survive no matter what!
The genres are quite alike, and they are universes where fighting is necessary for surivival. Where Naruto is more about emotions and the craft of a fictive universe, Bleach presents more extreme fighting scenes with a stench of Dragon Ball in it. Both are great animes.
Both series are about an outsider who tries to become stronger to protect his friends. In addition, Naruto, as well as Bleach, feature unique battles with super powers (Jutsus in Naruto and Soul Slayer attacks in Bleach).
Both have a main character that gets stronger and stronger as the show moves on. Both have an outstanding cast of support characters. Both are filled with action and all sorts of powers and blend in comedy at the right moments.
These anime are just the same type. Main characters just do all their best to save the world)) an alternative reality, special supernatural abilities, interesting fights... Both anime contain all these aspects. Of course these series are really childish and rather simple, but it can help you to give a rest to your brain! So, enjoy)))
Both are long-running action packed TV series, with extremely similar main characters. Both Ichigo and Naruto, besides having orange/yellow hair, are not-to-bright extremely strong brute force fighters who both have next-to-no techniques besides from they're signature moves, but who prevail through sheer willpower and strength. One involves swords, the other ninjas :)
Both anime tells about one guy who wants to be the best and protect everyone. They start from level zero and raises to high level with training. There are awesome fights all the time and are both funny too.
Both are shounen and involve quite alot of violence. There is not much of a romance in it although naruto may be a bit more emotional than bleach. They both start out with a guy that is inexperienced, but as the story progresses they improve dramatically
Both series provide you with similar characters, who start off as newbies and as they make friends, enemies and fight their ways through, they realize they have amazing potential and learn what friendship really means! In both Bleach and Naruto, you'll harness action till you drop!
Both series are long running (lots of episodes) series that center around action and fighting. The main characters are very good and the stories are very profound. The main characters both start of as inexperienced but very stubborn and determined to become the best. Gradually they learn what the toll is of the world they live in while they become stronger.
Both main characters have powers and a strong willed mind. They never give up and fight mainly for the sake of their friends (I've just described the shounen genre). Both develop their powers throughout the anime as they keep training and fighting. One as a substitute shinigami and the other one as a ninja. The cast of Bleach is older than Naruto's but the target audience is not very different so if you've watched one and are looking for something with the same feel to it, give the other a go.
Let's start by comparing the story, both have similar shounen elements of that fighting spirit; Bleach = spiritual energy and Naruto = chakra. The Story's main protagonist seeks to become stronger after each encounter to protect their families (although in the beginning Naruto's motive is to not be seen as an outcast) The development of the protagonist is conveyed in a simple formula of finding that inner strength to overcome their opponent (speaking which both suffer inner demons to which they must also struggle against and control to unleash their full potential), however this simple formula is made entertaining by the interactions with a long list of supporting characters and the choreography of the fight scenes.
The OST is probably the most outstanding feature of both Naruto and Bleach. They both evoke this primal instinct to fight and be poised for a fight (also evident through their extensive training regimes). It's heart pounding and raises the tension/excitement factor to set the scene for some epic shounen battles. The fight/battle scenes are generally dragged out to showcase both the parties moves and special abilities but also act as its foundation to the plot. (i.e. introducing new abilities, developing new abilities or creating plot points)
The animation is solid throughout both shows, especially considering both shows' length. It certainly will not be a deterrent. However, one point to note is the amount of fillers may be an issue for a lot of viewers, to overcome this issue, I recommend seeking some great filler guides on the internet to watch the show in its canon form especially if the filler is not to your liking.  read more
They both follow a main character who starts off as almost useless but each character gets stronger as time goes on. They each have a group of friends whose powers stem from same source of power. Both main characters have different forms that increase their power but at the price where they have to fight for control. And at some point one of the main villians becomes immortal.
The main characters of both shows, Ichigo and Naruto, are quite similar in terms of personality. They are both brash, energetic and have a tough exterior, although they have a kind heart. Both shows have the main character train to become stronger and protect his friends. Overall, these anime have similar art and animation, a lot of action and similar comedy, a large cast of characters, a similar plot and an overall similar vibe.
The two main characters, ( Naruto and Ichigo) both have sad back stories, giving them the will to help others especially their friends. They both start off as very weak and steadily surpasses their superiors one by one until everybody notices and relies on them.
If you like watching shounen anime where you follow the protagonist and watch them grow throughout the anime you'll probably enjoy both series. Both protagonists grow stronger as they constantly fight tougher opponents and learn to control their unstable powers. Both series also have impressive fight scenes, Bleach with swords and Naruto with hand-to-hand combat and using special techniques called "ninjutsu".
Both series are long running (lots of episodes) series that center around action and fighting. The main characters are very good and the stories are very profound. The powers of the different characters will surprise you every time you get to see a new one. The main characters power never seem repetative and you will always want to see the next episode right away due the high level of suspense throughout the series.
A lot of the time when one is explaining a popular shonen servers, one hears the word "generic" but when explaining these two anime, the word to use is "exciting". HxH and Naruto are about young boys who start their journey to complete a goal of becoming something: Naruto wants to be Hokage and Gon wants to become a great Hunter. Both anime have many different characters which are unique and memorable. Both have many arcs that tie into a meta narrative. If you are looking for a fun action/adventure anime, then these two are a good choice.
both animes take place in alternative worlds filled with adventure and thrill. hunter x hunter (2011 version) is a great anime however if you like naruto only for their battles you may want to reconsider because hunter x hunter tend to focus more on the adventurous and thrill aspect of the story instead of the action of the battles (there is a great deal of fighting in it don't get me wrong! just not as much as naruto)
I'm not very good with words, but the Chunin Exams were very similar to the Hunter Exam. Also, Gon acts similar to Naruto, and if Kurapika and Killua were one person they would be a lot like Sasuke. They have their differences, but Naruto may have been inspired by Hunter x Hunter in ways.
Both shows are action,shounen series. Naruto at the beginning(19 episode) starts with the chunnin exam whereas hunter x hunter has the Hunter exam. The fighting system of both anime are similar, naruto is based on chakra and hunter x hunter is based on "Nen" which is aura. One of the protagonists in naruto(sasuke) has similar story to one of the hunter x hunter (kurapica). I don't want to imply anything but the manga of hunter x hunter came in 1999 so make your own assumptions.
They've got a similar feeling to them, especially if you're comparing Pre-Shippuden Naruto to Hunter X Hunter. Both are good series about a young boy growing into a bad ass and it's clear that a lot of different parts of Naruto were inspired by HxH.
Both of these anime have similar story arc progression with a lasting quality that makes you involved with the characters. Each anime has it's own originality that I enjoyed since I didn't know what to expect next. Both of these are funny and left me smiling on more than one occasion although there are punctuations of very serious character and plot development that made me want more. Over all very good shows and you shouldn't hesitate to watch them for a full length experience.
-Young boy on a journey
-Themes very similar
-Dense and happy main character
-Main character/ no parents (well...with him...)
-Main character both have spikey hair?! XD
Both are based on manga that were created around the same period and published by Shounen Jump. Both have a main protagonist who has no parents and never surrenders. They follow the main protagonist as he makes several friends, from which, one who comes from a notorious family and one who seeks vengeance for the murder of his clan. The first part of the anime follow these protagonist as they take a certain exam (Chuunin exams / Hunter exams). They also have similar villains: a shady criminal organization, and a pale man who takes an interest in the main characters and switches factions often.
Both series starts off with a early exam in Hunter x Hunter's case it's Hunter exam and in Naruto's case it's chunin exam. Both are anime's with much fight's but there's also a huge difference between the fighting styles Hunter x Hunter's fights focuses more on tactics than Naruto's fights which is usually just a normal fight. Both are long running action shounen. Both episodes have over 100 episodes. If you have not watched either of these series then you should start with Hunter x Hunter because in my opinion Hunter x Hunter is a much better anime.
-Both MCs have a goal in which they have to take some sort of test (Hunter Exam/Chunin Exam)
-Both have diverse types of characters
-Both have excellent fighting/action scenes
-Both have an organized crime group (Phantom Troupe/Akatsuki)
-Both are shounen
If you like shounen with cool action scenes, you'll like both.
-Both feature young children as the main characters
-Both have a tryhard protagonist
-Both have virtually limitless 'power' possibilities (Nen and Ninjutsu) that fall into 5 or 6 classes
-Both have lots of character development
Gon and Naruto are both very happy characters, believing in their friends and such, and their best friend is the darker type. Both story-lines can become quite serious and emotional, and the chakra part is similar too. If you like an optimistic main character both are perfect (as is One Piece).
Two long-running shonen series with incredibly uplifting, irreverent protagonists, a big broad world where you have to pass an exam to be recognized as a worthy practitioner of martial arts, and anime magic in the form of chakra/Nen.
Hunter x Hunter is definitely an anime that every beginner should watch, very good for those looking for an anime with many episodes, unlike most anime that has 12 to 26 episodes. It is one of the best if not the best work ever done, just like the classic Naruto, but unfortunately his sequence, Naruto Shippuden, in my opinion, is a really crap. Hunter vs. Hunter has a perfect storyline with the best fights I've ever seen in life, being a dominantly shonen anime with action.
This new anime, Nabari no Ou is very similar to Naruto, even some animes don't go that far to have techniques that uses nature so this really have some similarities. The main character seems to have something hidden inside that that is very powerful...
Both protagonists have a special ability that makes people chase them. Though most people would say they are completely different, both of the protagonists care deeply for the people around them and hate to see them hurt. Even to the point of giving themselves up to the people chasing them. Though Nabari no Ou is shorter than Naruto they both show that they get stronger to protect themselves and the ones around them. They are both quite similar if you think about it.
The series - though different - share a common interest with one another and that is ninjas. Ninjas with a goal to protect the ones they care about, and all in goal to stop an enemy from taking over the world or reconstructing it to their liking.
Both Nabari no Ou and Naruto hold some strong similarities in that, but also hold strong differences with each other. But a series that both should be tried.
Both series tell about a ninja world. Nabari no Ou tells about the current world and Naruto has its own ninja world. In both anime, there is a guy who has the power to change the world and other people are trying to use it. Both of them want to protect their friends and the world. They are both very good anime with action, drama, comedy, and more.
Nabari no Ou is extremely similar to Naruto, one of the on;y differences is that it's not unnecessarily drawn out.
Nabari no Ou, and Naruto both have
1) A character that is emotionless on the outside, but the main character wants to save them
2) A fox spirit targeting the main character
3) A character who's older brother murdered the rest of their family
4) A doting sensei, who will do anything to protect his students
6) Hidden shinobi villages
7) A scroll that the characters at one point or another, aspire to get
And much more! I apologize, it's been about 4 years since I've seen Nabari no Ou, I just remember loving it, and it's characters, but it also hitting me hard in the Naruto feels. read more
Both series are about ninjas, ninja clans, and a special main character with an unstoppable, unknown power which lies within. Although Naruto is, without a doubt, much more popular, maybe a change of pace like this more underappreciated ninja show could be for your tastes.
Both of these series follow adolescents. The main characters both follow a set goal where each is trying to prove something to someone. The character development is superb and goes into exquisite detail for everyone. Both series have specific powers or abilities that each character maintains. Action scenes are also extremely intense and well animated.
Aside from the stubborn-ness and will-to-succeed-no-matter-what personalities of both lead characters Naruto (Naruto) and Gon (HxH), the display of a wide range of fighting styles using a certain energy-manipulating concept (chakra for Naruto; nen for HxH), the dangerous examinations storyline (Genin/Chuunin exams; Hunter exams), and the search for an important person (Naruto's friend Sasuke; Gon's dad Jin), the quality of humor and adventure in both anime gives the viewer similar highly enjoyable experience :)
The series have many things in common. The main character is a boy who has to pass a difficult, often life-threatening exam using jitsu/spiritual energy, and he does it with the help of his friends. There are lots of fights and many episodes are focused on training.
A little boy who goes out on a journey while finding friends, fighting against an evil organisation and is an image after his father who is an legend.
I highly recommend this show to any Naruto fan out there. It's funny and has a really good story. The animation is good when you think of how old it is and the music is fitting. Also at some parts it feels like Naruto has adapt some things from this show like the exam and an evil organisation.
Do I even dare to say that HunterxHunter is much better than Naruto? Well, yeah I do. read more
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.
if you like Naruto than you should know that more than half the stuff in it was already taken from hunter x hunter. the most obvious is the fact that a clan of "red-eyed" people were slaughtered because of their red-eyes. thee's also the fact that there's a survivor that's bent on getting revenge and will do anything to succeed. remind you of someone?....
other than that "idea"
both main characters grew up without their parents.
both their dad's are great people.
both "act" rather than "think"
they both have a 4 main character squad (team 7 with kakashi, and than Gon's team)
both have an exam at the beginning.
both have an antagonist group that's bent on destroying the world or something related (akatsuki = the spiders) and the "red-eyes" want to find this group.
both have some sort of chakra/ki/energy related stuff that they learn
both have shounen battles and tournaments.
both have something ridiculous with them (Naruto wearing a bright orange jumpsuit while he's a ninja, and Gon fighting with a fishing rod) yet somehow their able to work with it. read more
the main male characters are the xcept that in naruto the guy's more idoitic and hyper but both guys are hardworking and never give up. they both also talk bout clans and enemy clan. oh and in both one guy has red eyes. i recomend this if you liked h x h
In the same way that HxH was deeply inspired by Dragonball, Naruto is deeply inspired by HxH. For one, both series make their money from their attachable characters and bright outdoor style. Second, many plot element from Naruto are almost simply ripped off HxH (chuunin exam and hunter exam, chakra abilities taken from a nen ability - the puppeteer for instance).
However, just as HxH was more serious than DB, dropping a lot of the humour for more daunting psychological trauma, Naruto pushes that further to the point of sounding emo at time. Yet, overall, it remains light.
Both are based on manga that were created around the same period and published by Shounen Jump. Both have a main protagonist who has no parents and never surrenders. They follow the main protagonist as he makes several friends, from which, one who comes from a notorious family and one who seeks vengeance for the murder of his clan. The first part of the anime follow these protagonist as they take a certain exam (Chuunin exams / Hunter exams).

If you see black star and naruto you will find similiar clumsy character.Because they both have the same idiotic that alway's rushing into thing's without thinking first.they also have strong will & dream.That why i recomended this serial because they both funny,and if you like naruto series i confident that You also like this series.Please Enjoyed!
The art style for Soul Eater actually is rather similar to Naruto's in the fact that it uses rather thick lines and bright, solid colours. Even the tone of the anime is similar, adding light-hearted and funny moments in-between epic action. Soul Eater injects a bit more humour than Naruto, but they both do a good job of relieving tension with humour at the right moments. Both anime focus on building up the quirky characters (which are very lovable and memorable) as they progress further into their world and as they get into more fights. Both stories are essentially following the main characters getting stronger and maturing as they strive towards their ultimate goal. read more
Naruto relates to the character Black Star in Soul Eater very much(as mentioned by others)--the difference is that Black Star is much cooler(IMO).
Both animes have a similar relation with the characters being mediocre at first and eventually grow stronger. Soul Eater however is fairly more organized in episodes and actually has an ending(also, it didn't exceed over 100 episodes!).
There's lots of your humour and action just like Naruto too.
Some of the characters resembles each other like...
Black star and Naruto who thinks they're better than everyone else
Death the kid and Sasuke who are bad asses
maka and sakura who feels the need to be stronger
When watching Soul Eater i instantly thought "this is like naruto only a bit cooler" Both have characters coming out of a school where they are trained to fight at young ages and get put into dangerous situations leading to fighting some sort of ultimate evil.
There are a lot of resemblances between the two. Some of the main characters are like main characters from Naruto. Me and my friend joke around and try to assign a Soul Eater character to a Naruto character. So far we have matched Kakashi, Naruto, Sasuke, Kabuto, Orchimaru, and the Mizukage.
Soul eater is very similar to Naruto as it about groups of young people who fight. It might not be long and it might have shallower plot but it's better made with nicer sense of humour and not that long. Extreme similarities can be seen on some charachters such as Naruto and Star.
Soul Eater and Naruto are very similar because they both contain great comedy and fight scenes. When I first started watching Soul Eater, the first person that reminded me of Naruto was Black Star. They're both loud and obnoxious, but do care about their comrades intensely. Black Star also reminds me of Sasuke because they have similar back stories. Then there's Maka, who reminded me of Sakura because of their kind and caring personalities and also their tendency to punch/chop people that annoy them. There are so many other people who remind me of the characters from Naruto, but if I listed them I would probably spoil it for you.
Then there's also the comedy that made me crack up constantly. There were also some pretty heartfelt scenes and sad back stories but they weren't as sad as the ones from Naruto. Even though there aren't any couples, you will probably end up shipping a lot of the characters.
So, if you enjoyed Naruto or Naruto Shippuuden and you think there are too many episodes or you don't want to put up with lots of filler episodes, then I recommend that you watch Soul Eater! read more
The main protagonist from each series Naruto (Naruto) and Midoriya (BnHA) share a weakling persona in the world that they live in. They also share a dream reaching the top of their respective societies (Hokage for Naruto and #1 Hero for Mirdoriy). Each protagonist is also paired with a much more gifted and talented rival. The setting are very different but both series revolve around students gaining the proper training, experience, and licensing needed to become a professional in their respective worlds (Ninjas in Naruto and Heroes in BnHA). Aside from the main characters the rest of the casts for both series are immense full of likeable unique characters with divers personalities, designs, and abilities. This is not limited to the heroes in either series as they both have wonderful antagonist who are also likeable and unique.  read more
- MC are very similar; the usual "I can do it" belief. Both aspire to reach their ultimate goal with the same mentality, that are similar to one another.
- It's the usual shounen story with a nice twist to it; heroes in BNH and ninjas in Naruto
- Many consider BNH to be the next Naruto
If you enjoyed Naruto, or miss It, Boku No Hero Academia will definitely fill the void. Bones have done an incredible job and the story is executed extremely well. Must watch.
This is a recommendation made based on how the MC resemble each other, and to some extent, lead how the story is going to progress. Both series featured a young boy who is shunned and looked down by society, and thus driving them to proved those stigma wrong by becoming 'the best'. It's an intriguing coming-of-age-type stories that will make you rooted for the MC in order to reach their dream.
Both MC's are weak, had a rough past and didn't had support of parents.
Both MC's want to be strong and help others
Both have a little comedy, lots of action, scenes that should touch viewers emotionally
In these two series, it’s needless to say that we get to watch the main character grow in more ways than one. While the main character in Naruto is a delinquent, and the one in My Hero Academia is a timid and polite boy, similarly they only wish for the best for the people around them. If you like a story about characters who start off with nothing and prove to everyone else that they can be something, then you’ll most likely like these.
Both are shonens. The MC begins as weak, but continues to grow strong as the series progresses. Although Deku isn't considered stupid, both Naruto and Deku will willingly jump into danger to achieve their dream. Deku wants to be a professional hero, and Naruto wants to be Hokage. In fact, My Hero Academia started the same year that Naruto (manga) ended, so many consider My Hero Academia to be the next naruto.
In both series the protagonist starts as someone who is seen as weak by others and vows to become the strongest to show everyone that with hard work he can do it too. Both series have great fight scenes with characters using special abilities in them. If you enjoy watching shounen anime where the main character grows throughout the show you should like both of the series.
Great character designs , colorful color palette , a distinct and diverse huge pool of characters , tactical battles , A school setting. It takes what made the Original Naruto series so popular and tries to recreates that magic in a Superhero genre.
Hokage Is the Boss.
The main charactar start to be a lonely week drop-out, No-good, but as times flow they start to grow, and become stronger, Naruto Wants to become hokage, while Tsuna which is the main charactar in Reborn, is forced to become the Boss of the strongest mafia, Vongola.
To become a Boss Is like becoming the Hokage, The Boss's responsibility is to protect his "family" and the hokages responsibility is to protect the village.
Comedy is a big part in Naruto, and In Hitman Reborn too,
Tsuna is kinda like Naruto in the begining, a loser with no much talent, comedy is playing a big part and friendship too. Later does it became more serious and much more action and both Tsuna and Naruto becomes very strong.
virtual unskilled young male lead...through struggles and training become stronger....long drawn battles which displayed alot of amazing battle strategies.. comarade with friends...both leads are the clowns (butt of jokes)
Katekyo hitman Reborn is very similar to Naruto in some ways. First is the main character. Tsuna and Naruto are both no-good at the start. Then some trainings are similar. Patience, determination and strenght are just a few. Try watching KHR to know more. Trust me, you'll love it! If not, comment me.
I have never thought that I will find any similarities in these animes (except that they are both long shounens). Those who watched Naruto and Naruto Shippuden will definitely like/love Katekyo Hitman Reborn! (but I can't promise the same if the opposite)...
Both Of The Characters:
- Start to build their way up and develop their real personality and image from the very 0. Naruto is a recluse, who never had any close or far frinds, because everyone is afraid to mix with him, because of his cursed mark and the rumours about beast, living inside the boy. On the other hand he is a complete looser,
who does something silly all the time, sometimes more than one silly thing at a time. He got used to living alone, and even though his new friends don't seem to like him much, that doesn't stop him for aiming to fight and achieve his goals.
Tsuna doesn't have many friends and he is used to the live of a loner (loner, not lonely). Unlike Naruto, he has a family and couple of, well, friendly classmates on his side, but he doesn't mind being alone at all.
- Have kind hearts, pretty much strong will when it comes to fight and definitely strong will when it comes to protect someone, and fight for justice and rescue the world.
- Are said to be leadrers. Naruto's dream is to become a Hokage and protect his friends and village, as a leader. Tsuna has to become a mafia Boss in addition to protect his friends and family.
- Have to go through special training to gain enough experience. In addition of becoming stronger and fight for what they one day will achieve, you can see the character total transformation and how are they growing mentally and physically.
- Need to tame a *** beast.
In The Both Stories:
- Elements like Earth, Wind, Mist, Wind, Fire, Water... are used by characters in their fighting techniques.This is adding an unique quality to each character's personality and inner power.
- The character chakra/flame has a form of an animal, which along with the elements describes their individual personality.
Their main characters (Naruto and Tsuna) start ridiculously weak and get really strong as time flows. They also have friends that help in the journey with their different powers. Both are mainstream shounen anime. Both give you a good time, but remember, friendship is always the most important thing! If you liked one, you will definitely like the other.
i would have to say that Naruto and Rin are alike they are some person who likes to help others, and let them understand peoples feelings, Naruto and Rin know when people are being hurt or know that when they need someone, they know that they have to be the one to be there. Like Naruto helping Gaara, Naruto new that Gaara was like him, and the same thing went as Rin wanted to stop Ryuji making the same mistake as what he did to his own father. Everyone didn't like them, everyone knew that he had a demon in side of Naruto, and everyone called Rin a demon because he act like one.
But i also think that Rin is like Gaara too, because people keeps calling them a demon. And that Father Fujimoto is like Naruto too because he understand Rin and Rin knows that he under stand him.
so i would say that it's equal to equal to each character
Naruto is like Rin and Fujimoto
and Rin is like Naruto and Gaara
Things that made Ao No Exorcist "the same" as Naruto:
- There a students that is styding on a school for becoming something
- They are on missions outside and need to survive without the teacher (tho, that episode was very exciting!)
- They can make animals and things come and help them only by saying special formula or something.
- They can bite their fingers and use their blood to make the things they get from the formula to be stronger.
- The story start's also about a boy that is borned demon and got a horrible childhood.
- The demon boy also lose his control over his demon powers, but ends with mastering it in the end.
- The boys was also found outside alone when they were babies and somebody took them home. (I'm not going to say anything more about that, because that is a very interesting story!)
- The demon boy is also in a class where he is fighting with another boy and taking about who is best etc..
- There is a old/young/good looking lady that got big boobs in both of the series.....
- The mine teacher in both series are acting the same to the mine character (Rin and Naruto)
- They both get flames when they using their power, only that the colour is different.
Now I can't think of anything more, but yea... read more
Although they are not essentially similar except for the fact that both anime has something to do with ninjas, I think that if you like Naruto you'll also like this anime. If you're a die-hard ninja fan Flame of Recca is also worth checking out.
Both main theme are set in the ninja world. Both involved great ninja fight between the good and the bad. Both had a good characters development to go with a good storyline.
Definitely for those that are interested in ninja, fighting type anime.
Uzumaki Naruto and Hanabishi Recca are both ninjas. They share similar ideals, and strive to become stronger to protect those close to them. If you're a fan of Naruto, I highly recommend Flame of Recca.
i think so if you have seen naruto you will like rekka no honno both involves ninjas and the word hokage is mentioned.In naruto hokage is the head of the leaf village but in recca no honoo its is a tribe of ninjas. there is humour in both the series and in naruto kurama is strored inside him in rekka no honno there are the 8 dragons inside him.
A lot of humour, great battles, many many techniques, characters, etc. All these are features from both Animes.
The Protagonist - A smiling guy, dressed on orange/red and blue. Naruto in blond. Goku can be blond.
Both are great Anime with great batlles and many funny moments.

Being Akira Toriyama (Dragon Ball Z creator) a main inspiration for Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto, Naruto marks the starting point of many anime viewers. In the 90's Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z was the Shonen anime that made a lot of people fan to the anime. In this time, Naruto is the Shonen anime that had made a lot of people fan to the anime being Naruto their first anime. Packed with a lot of action, martial arts fight (Ninjutsu) and the road to be the strongest, Naruto is an action anime that any DBZ fan would love and plus has a more thriller drama. read more
Same type of "leveling-up" occurs for the characters. Kenichi and Naruto are definitely similar in that there's martial arts, and both main characters start off basically sucking. Kenichi is much shorter though, so you'll be able to enjoy a feature filled show without all the fillers.
Both are shonen, but if you've seen DB in your childhood and you're looking for something similiar to it Naruto should do. The difference is that of course Naruto has better animation (well, it was aired almost 20 years after DB). Both have many fights and both are funny.

Both are based on manga published by Shounen Jump. They both tell the adventures of a young kid, who has no parents and comes from a remote village, as he makes new friends and fights against strong enemies. Also, both anime show the main character train in order to become stronger and also participate in battle tournaments.
The series have a very similar premise. Both have a young protagonist who trains to become stronger while facing powerful opponents. Both series have impressive fight scenes where characters use special techniques using their inner energy. If you enjoy watching shounen series with combat in them, you'll probably like both the series.
The tags and genres are roughly the same, and both series are made up as universes instead of stories. Action, emotional and funny scenes are present in both animes, and you'd definitely get to like some of the characters.
This show is almost like Naruto.
1. The relationship between Marshall Cross and Allen is similar to the relationship between the Pervy Sage and Naruto. With the masters mistreating and giving their students a hard time.
2.The clan of Noah is like the Akatsuki
3. Kanda and Sasuke are alike in their personalities, they even look alike. And they both wield swords.
4. Allen and Naruto are both called something like "Bean sprout" and "knucklehead". They both seem or appear to be immature but Allen is a lot more smarter and calmer.
5. Both shows have missions and somebody giving out those missions like the hokage and Kumoi Lee
6. Allen and Naruto are both weak at first but Naruto works a lot harder than Allen, whose power just levels up
7. Lenalee and Sakura are alike they are both useless. Though Lenalee is A LOT nicer.
8. Both plots have the good people have something inside that the enemy wants to take away. Like The Clan of Noah takes people innocence and the Akatsuki takes bijuu.
9. Both Allen and Naruto have sayings like " my ninja/whatever way", "I made a promise...".
10. The whole exorcist and ninja things are alike.
12. Each person who wields innocence has a different power, just like in Naruto except in Naruto you have to learn different powers, and some people can have same powers like more commonly shadow clone or ..... clones. Naruto does have some rare powers like Byakugan, Sharingan, Rinnegan the three ocular powers.
Naruto tops D.Gray Man because the people in Naruto especially the main character are more hard working while the characters in D. Gray Man just get power.
Also Miranda lotto's episode with the recurring time in a city is just like Haruhi Suzumiya's endless eight read more
d.gray-man has a energetic main character [allen walker] who is a lot like the main character in naruto [naruto uzumaki], a cold-attitude friend or comrade [kanda yuu and sasuke uchiha] who has a dark past, and an energetic female character who wants to protect their friends [lenalee lee and sakura haruno]. both stories are on fighting, but are laced with humour along the series. if you liked one of them, you may like the other. i cannot guarantee that you will absolutely like it, as everyone has their own unique preferences.
Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu and naruto have some similarities: "betrayal and friendship"
The MC have different traits but they have the same dark past, one of them is always motivated and the another want to sleep all day.
sasuke and sion are the same, both of them are good friend of MC but they have different traits
both the main character are best friends at first and end up becoming enimies.
both what to kill each other but the cant at the end they hold back
both have very deep friendship bond
both the main characters are very strong
both main character have been abused, insulted ,tried to kill,because they are monster.
both have people hunting for they power to and kill them
The MC has a secret power that is hated by all people, tot he point that people like him are executed and/or banished as monsters. They both have elemental magic system of combat as ell as a little swordplay. There is also a fair bit of betrayal between friends and a lot of plot twists.
after picking up FMA, it's difficult in finding an anime with such a riveting storyline and appealing characters. Naruto was the series managed to satisfy a new anime craze for me. Admittingly enough the story is not as tight as FMA, there is somethign about the series which draws you in and it's worth picking up
with an interesting plot and surprising twists, it's a perfect anime for someone who likes a lengthy story... although it is not for the faint hearted with a few bloodied scenes.
the story starts with a confusing scene that draws the viewer in, and it explains the characters lives at an understandable pace... definitely an anime that makes you care about the characters enough that you want to shout at them to get up if they get knocked down...
very much the way Naruto makes you feel. (at least, it makes me feel that way!)
it not just that though... this anime is laced with Japanese folklore for people who like stories with a bit of truth in them. That is... a bit anyway...
however, this is not the reason I chose to continue watching this anime. I actually love the lessons they knock into you e.g. "those who abandon their mission are scum, but those who abandon their friends are worse than scum"- Hatake Kakashi read more
Both fairly known Animes, character focus, and a lot of action. If you're getting into anime from Naruto, I'd suggest Full Metal Alchemist. Not only for the action, for the love, comedy, and general mood of it.
Both "Naruto" and "Fullmetal Alchemist" are series that easily are classified as mere fighting animes. In both cases I would disagree with the "mere"-part. Both of these animes have plenty of fights, but the also have the ability to go deeper in a way that will make them appreciated not only by adolescents, but by adults as well, and as such they both represent the cream of the crop of fighting anime.
So, you liked the tragic tale of Oboro and Gennosuke and you're looking for more epic ninja action? Don't worry! I've got just the show for you. It's this somewhat unknown gig called NARUTO. In NARUTO, the world also has secret villages populated by ninjas that have all sorts of weird abilities, and who are destined to fight each other. BUT THAT'S NOT ALL!
Basilisk fans know that EYES are a very important part of this show's story. Both clan leaders have special eyes that have unique capabilities. Gennosuke's may kill anyone who looks straight at him, whereas Oboro's can cancel any other form of ninjutsu. As such, for you, fellow eye conoisseurs, you'll be happy to know that NARUTO features not only ninjas, but also NINJAS WITH SPECIAL EYES. And their eyes are even more diverse than Basilisk's! They have more properties, they can be fused and change over time, they can even be PASSED DOWN BY IMPLANTS. It's the true show for eyes lovers, and if you consider yourself one, you don't want to miss this. read more
Naruto was probably influenced by Saint Seiya's concept of lower class soldiers fighting and defeating those of higher hierarchy. The upper class soldiers notably underestimates their lower class opponents and are overcome.
Both anime teem with combats in which fighters rely on some inner strength that grows subsequently as the story develops. In Naruto, it is Chakra, while in Saint Seiya, it is Cosmos... Both anime do tackle similar themes such as: loyalty and brotherhood.
Storyline is placed in early Japan.Involves some sort of magic in both.Both anime includes a kind of non-human evil god(or devil)-like character and 1 group trying to protect it and the main character group trying to defeat it.Plot twist in Naruto is SOOO REAL,but in Donten,it just gives a mini plot twist.
Well the charcters on these show are similar. Naruto acts like genta, Sasuke acts like Alvis, Shikamaru acts like jack, and sakura acts like snow as well as hinata.
They act the same by the way they fight, their attitude towards people, and their efforts to others as well as fight.
Naruto is similar to Genta by the way they fight, the fight even if they might not be able to win in the end. The eat alot as well like someone who likes some on else.
Sasuke is like Alvis because of their same atitude towards people. They don't wantto show any weakness toward the one the are rivals with.
Sakura and Hinta re like Snow, because they like some one who either likes them back or dosen't. They are as similar as one can be.
Shikamaru is most like jack because they really don't feel like doing any work at all. Most people would do what they are told but these two are different because they will argue with the person and then end up doing it. They also don't feel like fighting some one stronger than them.
They also have a nighing mother. read more
-both main characters are really similer, one of them being they both have blond hair, and the other being that their father's are "special"
-has a character that is both an enemy/rival/friend, that they end up trying to save.
-Sasuke = Alviss, they also have a "curse mark" that makes them stronger but less human.
Similar stories, except Kingdom have no magical or supernatural elements. Both Naruto and Xin in Kingdom are orphans. They are strong, and both have the same lack of respect for rank and formal authority. Naruto dreams about being a hokage and respected by all. Xin has the same dream, except he wants to be the greatest general. Iruka is the big-brother figure in Naruto and the first one to really see Naruto’s strength. That’s Heiki in Kingdom. He, like Iruka, isn’t not one of the overwhelmingly strong characters, but he cares about and watches over Xin. Shikamaru is the smart friend, Xin has Kario Ten and Mou Ten (And I guess Shika’s dad would be Shoheikun in Kingdom). Jiraya is Naruto’s strong mentor, but Xin has Ou Ki. I could go on much longer, like Ou Hon is the aloof and antagonistic noble in Kingdom, that might become a friend in the future, just like Neiji is in Naruto. read more
Xin Li and Naruto are both aiming to become #1 military ranks. Both involve a lot of epic fights lasting many episodes, while Naruto is more about super power, but Kingdom is also looking mysteriuos at time, though it tends to be realistic. So these start a very long journey towards the glory, and who knows where it is gonna lead them...
World Trigger is a sci-fi version of Naruto, using science instead of magic to explain the same things. There are similarities between Chakra and Trion in concept, and in how they can be used in battle.
The two series have a similar vibe and pace, and parallels between attitudes and character types.
There are several common themes in both anime, such as steadily overcoming difficulties, surpassing geniuses through hard work, and self-discovery and acceptance.
Naruto is about a Ninja who is looked down on because he had the Demon Fox sealed inside of him. He progresses afterwards so he became famous in his home town. It's similar to pokemon because Ash wasn't good when the series started. He just had patience and was not lazy to achieve his dream, just like Naruto
A lot of humour, great battles, many many techniques, characters, etc. All these are features from both anime. The protagonist—a smiling guy, dressed in orange/red and blue. Naruto is blond. Goku can be blond. Both are great anime with great battles and many funny moments.
There are some very similar characters in these two anime (Naruto/Sakuragi and Sasuke/Rukawa).They have similar humor. However, Slam Dunk is a sports-anime and Naruto is about ninjas. They are both PG-13, but I think Slam Dunk has more depth.
-Main protagonist has similar personality and wants to become strong.
-Qin's Moon has very inspiring philsophy, some things are similar to messages within Naruto.
- Both have action, some of the fighting ways are similar.
Similarities: based on historical times, main protagonists have no parents, main protagonists travel with a girl they like, a lot of assassins, friends that split up into their own paths, evil geniuses that pretend to be good guys, both protagonists aim to be the best of the best, and similar events that happen to Naruto on missions happen to Tianming on his travels
Differences: Qin's Moon is a Chinese 3D animation, Naruto is a Japanese 2D animation; Qin's Moon takes place in the Qin Dynasty, Naruto takes place in a Japanese-style fantasy world; Tianming doesn't help people through words as much as Naruto
"That's my ninja way "..."that's my righteousness"...
Both shows have teams. Both protagonists started off as being the weakest, but got stronger through hard work, training, and pure will. They both also become strongest when they are protecting others. They both are somewhat airheads, but make up for their idiocy through sincerity. They truly are the good guys, and this trait of theirs often turn enemies into friends :) If you love Naruto, you'll like Ueki as well :D
There's seriously no way that you won't like Yu Yu Hakusho if you liked Naruto. Both shows are about a teenager who has powers and whatnot, and has to save the day from an evil menace by entering tournaments, foiling the plans of bad guys who've been planning a Machiavellian revenge scheme for years, and have to constantly pull a hidden/inner/bloodline/etc power out of their ass every few episodes.
- both don't have any parents
- both sad past
- both deal with fighting
- both have power within them like Naruto has the 9tailed fox inside of him, and Teito has the Eyes of Mikhail.
- both lost their best friends because of this evil person and both dedicated their lives to find and destroy the person
- both never had any friend until they a guy came into their life. ( naruto and sauka, and teito and Mikage.
- both great and addicting animes.
Both main characters have something special inside of them that the opposing group wants. The main characters doesn't realize the special thing there at first and it comes out when there angry or in danger
"Iron Man" and "Naruto" tell stories of a arrogant and conceited male protagonist who is seeking approval or recognition from a land filled with people who think of him as an outsider.
However, slowly but surely, the main character is seen as a postive force through the eyes of people close to him who were affected by his selfless actions and gain the respect of people who understand the purpose behind his life goals as well as what he hopes to achieve.
"Naruto" and "Beyond the Boundary" / "Kyoukai no Kanata" 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.
The main characters are both fools who want to reach for the top of their respective fields. They usually use their innate talent and determination to break through the barriers set by their peers, who look down on them. The main characters are arrogant and see themselves in high regards. All of their teammates see themselves as on their level or above their level. There's that girl who admires the ignorant main character without their knowledge.
Naruto is shounen anime, Metal Fight Beyblade is adventure title more for kids. However, they have much similarities. Both are about fighting, in Naruto as ninjas, in Metal Fight Beyblade in Beyblade with beys. Main male characters - Naruto and Ginga are very similar in many ways - both want to fight no matter what (most all day), they're fighting to the end, never give up etc. Both loves to eat. They have dreams - Naruto wants to become a hokage, Ginga wants to be the best blader. Both have rivals and meats many friends in their ways. Also, both animes are very exciting and gives much emotions. read more
I watched yugioh and was recommended this, assuming I wouldn't like it and yugioh would be the only anime I ever watched. Naruto is equally as good and still contains a magical element just as yugioh did. The first episode is amazing, and the second and third are good also.
I'm about halfway through episode 4 and I thought I would recommend this to other yugioh fans looking for something else to watch. I'm alternating between the 2 now :)
Looking for another story about a hot-headed protagonist, who also happens to be short, blonde and an orphan?
Look no further than Edward Elric and the anime series's Fullmetal Alchemist and Fullmetal Alchemist : Brotherhood.
Unlike Naruto who is searching for his place in his village, Ed is searching for something else, but both characters fight through the hardest of times to get what they're looking for.
-Both are epic animes with unbelievable fighting scenes
-The relationship between Sasuke and Naruto is similar between Ryuuko and Satsuki
-Both histories are great, Naruto´s is still not ended, kill la kill is nicely ended.
-Kill la Kill is more outrageous and it´s music is better, Naruto is longer (so much more longer)
-Friends are the key of the tale in this animes
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 clone and replacement techniques, as well as Rasengan/Kuatsuken (as called in the respective series). In both anime, the trio of main characters protect villages from evildoers. Also, they both have a similar mood and comedy.
Both animes have a positive lead who will do anything to become stronger. Both main characters have the same basic personality, loud, impulsive, and melancholy when reflecting on his own failings. Both lost their parents at a very young age and had to grow up faster than those around them.
The stories are a bit different but the feel of the stories are similar. The Naruto-Sakura relationship is very similar to the Leif-Jasmine relationship and Barda is pretty similar to Kakashi. Leif is quite like Naruto in the beginnings of the series. I think if you enjoyed this series you'll enjoy the other.
As much as one anime is much longer than the other, both contain that one main character with a tough past and are consumed by revenge, in addition to both containing tattoos which sort of "trigger" their rage.
Lots of action, only Naruto's action doesn't exactly come with armored suits like Garo does.
Lastly, both animes have their protagonists, who both have hidden potentials, undergo awesome character development.
- A lot of character with different abilities
- The main characters was weak and they become more strong with endeavor
- Good fights 1 vs 1 showing the posibilities of her abilities
- Masters theach young boys
So ever since I started watching Naruto - I've read the manga, and only recently decided to give the anime a go - I've been, for some reason, unconsciously comparing it to Shingeki no Kyojin - my all-time favourite manga.
After the first episode of Naruto, I gave the show an 8. It was good. I'll give you that. The majority of anime don't get any more than a 6 from me usually. Shingeki no Kyojin, after the first episode, also got an eight. But I only changed that 8 to a 9 after the tenth Naruto episode, while Shingeki no Kyojin's eight turned into an immediate 10 after the second episode. Now, why is that? I'll try and explain.
Firstly: sfx and music. The atmosphere set up in Shingeki no Kyojin by the music accompaniments is absolutely flawless. In Naruto, I find that those things aren't as good. Some of the sfx and music are cliché. A lot of the 'touching' moments are filmed in such a terrible way that I couldn't decide if the show-makers intended us to understand it an a parodied way or a serious way. Maybe that's just me. But oh well, we all have our personal opinions.
Secondly: characters. This may be because I've read the manga previously, but I feel that the characters in Naruto, from the very first episodes of the manga, are very predictable, excepting a few choice moments. In SNK, there is no such thing. Every new development is a surprise. Every twist, every turn of the wrist and every trip decision comes as a complete shock.
Thirdly: direction of plot. One of the first things we hear Naruto say is that he wants to become the next Hokage. Since the show is named after him, we can safely assume, even from the first episode, that he will surmount all the coming obstacles and ascend to the position of Godaime no matter what obstacles lie in his path. I like the show, I really do. BUT THAT'S BORING. I don't like 'predictable' things - one of the reasons I prefer Shingeki no Kyojin. With SNK's plot, and with its developments, we have no idea whether or not killing the titans will ever be achieved. The main character's - Eren's - goal is to discover the outside world, and to do that he has to destroy the titans. He has no choice in the matter. It's that or getting killed. But with the number of deaths within the main characters and supporting characters, we could just as well safely assume that he'll get killed himself before he can even find out what the heck it was that his father left in his basement. Hell, even as I speak, Eren is being held captive in some rich guy's basement and about to be eaten by one of his best friends. And there seems to be no possible way out of it. A lot of the fans agree that it's possible he - the main character - will die. Naruto dying? Not possible. Never even considered. There can be no NARUTO without Naruto.
Fourthly: this last one is personal taste, but I tend to prefer really serious mangas/animes with very few comic relief (Sacha and Connie are two of the only comic relief characters in SNK, while ALL of Naruto's characters provide comic relief), heavy plot, manipulations, intrigues, and whatnot. I find that Naruto (the show, not the character, because Naruto Uzumaki is one of the characters I relate to the most in any anime) has TOO much comic relief, and takes TONNES away from the beauty and intensity that could be the show.
There's more, but I can't think how to put it into words. I tried my best not to give any SNK spoilers. No names.
Hope this is helpful to anyone who's been thinking the same thing or was looking for a comparison of the two. If you want to contact me to talk about this, or for any other reason, actually, then do! I'd be glad to meet someone new.
This isn't anime bashing by the way. I think the two shows are very good; I was only trying to put into words what made them different. Hope it makes you want to read whichever one you've not read/watched yet! ^^ read more
Kuusen and Naruto both have a strong airheaded character who has to lead an inadequate team of three. Both teams have a skilled, an idiotic and an avarage character. Even their haircolour is almost the same pattern. The only difference is that in Naruto all three are flatchested.
Both Claymore and Naruto follow the adventures of a low-ranked longshot who ends up being one of the most powerful members of the group. The moods of the shows are pretty different, but there are great fights and fun powers, so if you liked one, you might like the other.
Attack on Titan Picture Drama isn't focused on action, and the art style is very different from Naruto.
However, the antics within it reminded me of the antics from the early episodes of Naruto. The style of comedy is almost exactly the same. It was unmistakably similar, which made me think it was worth a mention.
GetBackers appears to have taken some inspiration from Naruto - aside from it's shonen action/ comedy nature, the protagonists Ban and Ginji share similarities with Sasuke and Naruto. Both Ginji and Naruto have spiky blond hair, and despite their goofy nature, they're very powerful fighters. Ban's Jagan also seems to be a watered down version of Sasuke's Sharingan. The relationship between Ban and Ginji is also very similar to Sasuke and Naruto's, although they have their differences.
-both protagonists are rejected, misunderstood and underestimated.
-both protagonists has great power within themselves and need to learn to control it
-both animes have action scenes and adventure
-both animes have super powers (zero no tsukaima has magic and naruto has jutsus)
"Naruto" 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.
I found Yugioh ZeXal and Naruto similar by some points. First, both of them aimed for younger audience. Also, The main characters are very similar. Yuma is like Naruto, annoying, bullied, weak teenager who wants to be master at something (Yuma to become Duel Champion, Naruto to become Hogake), and of course he'll do it with many powerups and the "power of nakama". Kotori is much like Sakura, useless cheerleader. Also, Kaito is Like Sasuke. Epic cool-like rival, but sadlly he is more tsundere. The relationship of Kaito and Yuma is very similar to Sasuke and Naruto's relationship. Both anime are pretty bad. But if you liked Zexal you'll probaly love Naruto.  read more
Because both have request 2 do but they also have crushes like Naruto likes Sakura and Sakura like Sasuke and Sasuke likes Sakura 2. And Daisuke has another person inside of him.Dark Mousy.And Nruto has another thing in him.The Nine Tailed Fox.(Yeah.) *shake head*
Both anime have strong male protagonist determined to fulfill his dream. Both of them will encounter many interesting friends and rivals. Their road to success wont be easy but rather filled with sweat, tears and pain.
Both anime deal with ninjas. The main protagonist in both titles are a young ninja must learn to become stronger while trying to project the people that they value the most. Both tiles are also action-packed anime with lots of fight scenes and characters with powerful ninja techniques. Both titles also feature a giant monster that wipe out a village that plays apart of the main protagonist's past. If you like one, you should enjoy the other.
Naruto and Blood Reign: Curse of the Yoma are both about ninjas. While they both have different tones (Blood Reign is horror while Naruto is Shounen action), both titles feature a rivalry between the two main character. The relationship between Hikage and Marou in Blood Reign is similar to Sasuke and Naruto. They are both filled with action and characters with crazy ninja techniques. If you like one, you will probably like the other.
Two of the biggest shonen titles of their respective eras. Plenty of different cool characters, ninjutsu, special attacks, constant fighting, life or death situations and above all the power of friendship and tenacity.
A shonen anime about samuria, which are good if you can't get ninjas. An awesome anime that has three story arcs. I revolves around the Mutsu clan who fight using an unarmed style called Mutsu Enmei Ryū. It has some nice battles, although they are more focused on sword play than hand to hand(the other characters are swordsmen).
-Both Renton and Naruto hold some massive power they dont fully understand to start off with
-also both shows have a similar comedy element revolving around the main characters' romantic incapabilities
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 Naruto, they are both action-packed anime and are very entertaining to watch. If you liked Naruto, you may enjoy Black Lion.
At first glance they probably don't look like they have anything in common but both have similar characters
two boys who both have incredible power in the form of a beast in them that they didn't know about. They learn about their power due to another intervention whose interested in helping them become stronger and helping them learn how to control the power. Both shu and naruto interest in becoming stronger leads them to find a rival in their team mate. jiro and sasuke both have a painful past that motivates them to fight so the can gain revenge.
Well, oriental setting, and with that Naruto occasionally manages to deliver the same kind of tranquil 'zen' feeling that Mushishi is completely based on. If you're into Mushishi's atmosphere and characters and don't mind the occasional martial arts sessions, then you'll like Naruto too.
Also the way the Mushi in Mushishi twist reality is sometimes similar in its weirdness to the use of Ninjutsu in Naruto. Both series' worlds therefore contain a mystical layer with them.
the story line is not the same but the characters are very simular in looks and personality + in both animes the main characters were best friends and then became enemies . I watch Naruto for years and when I first saw Break Blade it was the first thing that I thought was that the characters are exactly the same
Well they're both shonen animes about rivalry between two men, err boys. Going further they're both between a rambunctious orphan and a serious orphan. With much more interesting side characters and annoying female support. So if like one you should like the other despite the differences.
Both shows have a character named Rin (Kakashi's childhood friend) and Rin (rival of Haruka). Haruka's calm and nonchalant personality is similar to that of Sasuke Uchiha's. Finally, both main characters are very inspirational.
The tension between yomi and kagura really reminds me of Naruto and Sasuke, especially the fight at the end, which in both animes the characters fight because of their love and care towards each other. The storyline isn't similar at all though, so you won't feel too bored watching one after the other.
Jing sometimes looks smarter than Naruto, but his adventures are similar to Naruto's. If you like series concerning a young hero defeating (or try to defeat) enemies with comic elements, it's your choice. Without a common plot, Jing is more like Naruto's filler episodes, but that's not a bad thing.
