Very high priority in both titles is loyality, trust and naming Nakama, main characters are near to each other. Very important is that, the both are just comedies.
One of non-many differences is that the OP is about pirates and FT is about mages :)
- similar artstyle: true it can be seen, and a simple motivation is that Hiro Mashima (Fairy Tail's author) and Eiichiro Oda (One Piece's author) are of the same generation who grown up admiring Akira Toriyama (Dragonball's author). Rumors are that their styles were so forged by their worshipping Toriyama; this of cours makes works of both of them share a similar, very cool art style and character design.
- special powers: in a Jump's shonen manga those can't miss. Characters with awesome strong incredible powers are everywhere in both series. In One Piece we have devil fruits which give to their users incredible abilities, while in Fairy Tail we have mages which obviously do use their own magic spells/abilities.
- action: another big part and genre that both series do share.
- purposes: friendship is the main theme which makes an important bond between the main characters in both seasons.
- heroic scenes: One Piece and Fairy Tail do share quite a lot of very awesome heroic scenes.
- female characters: both authors wanted to give to their characters some strong power and/or personalities, differently from many other shonen series where the main female is just needed there to be saved and/or making comical scenes.
Those, and many other, are the shared things by both series, but the above listed are surely the biggest points which deserved to be mentioned.
So, indeed if you liked One Piece you could give a try to Fairy Tail, or viceversa.
Although, while manga series have both a very good art style, when it comes to anime One Piece's animation quality is cured more. read more
Natsu = Luffy (Cheerful Main Protagonist that wants to protect his friends)
Lucy = Nami (Similar Personalities, loves money, but is always being protected by the protaganists)
Gray = Zoro (Serious and Thoughtful)
Erza = Robin (Mysterious Women)
Happy = Chopper (Cute Mascots)
Gildarts = Shanks (Strong, Red Hair Members that are well respected)
Farewell for Laxus in Fantasia (Fairy Tail ep 48) = Farewell to Vivi in Arabasta (One Piece ep 129)
Juvia = Sanji (Crazily in love)
Master = Whitebeard (The way both masters/captains care for their guild/crew)
And to mention that each main character have their own sad pasts on their certain arcs too!
Same Art style , Same main characters , almost the same plot but fairy tail is with guilds and one piece is pirates. but personally fairy tail is a mistake and its so obvious that one piece is way way better
It's impossible to say that Fairy Tail isn't similar to One Piece...
Main Character of both Shows are quite alike (powerful but kinda idiot). The whole Adventure-style plot of both anime's (manga's) are very similar.
Quote by Pokymon: adventure + nakama + power ups..enjoy
Both Fairy Tail and One Piece have extremely similar main characters, who get hungry, eat a lot, and are in search for something. They both have great comedy and unique characters that everyone loves! :D
One piece is about a boy name luffy who becomes and pirate and heads off to find one piece the great treasure and does whatever is necessary for his crew in the other wise.
Fairy Tail, a guild for mages, we follow their story as they face any challenge and adversity. Each member of Fairy Tail will do whatever they can to protect what they cherish the most; their friends. A truly noble goal.
Overall both of the animes are almost the same just with a few substitutions for there powers example
Fairy Tail is very similar to One Piece because both main characters cherish their friends and believe in the concept of Nakama. Both mains would go to the ends of the earth for their Nakama.The comedy/humor aspect is also the same.
The only real difference is that One Piece has Pirates and Fairy Tail has Mages.
Besides the other the 35 recommendations for this anime, the main reason why Fairy Tail lovers should try One Piece is because of the characters and the atmosphere. The two main protagonists (Natsu from Fairy Tail and Luffy from One pIece) are Comedic and Cheerful. The personality of one character mirrors the other character perfectly. The overall atmosphere of the animes are similar due to the art, music, sounds, and characters.
In short: Every time I watch Fairy Tail, I always think about One Piece.
First off, both are based on long shounen manga series, so they follow a bunch of story arcs in addition to the main goal. The artstyles are quite similar, with characters looking very lanky and lots of wild and colorful animations. Both also have a general theme of friends/teamwork/nakama, with the main teams of the series (Team Natsu for Fairy Tail, Strawhats for One Piece) always working with and fighting for eachother.
Meet Luffy's doppleganger. The story is great, it's all about bonds that grow between nakama, and is filled with hilarity, awesome epic win, and more.
Trust me, if you liked One Piece, you'll like Fairy Tail.
Perhaps the most done rec in this new season, Fairy Tail and One Piece! The first and most obvious similarity, is STYLE. The character drawings, emotion-depicting faces, and character personalities are very similar to each other which is due to the fact that both creators went to the same art school! Luffy and Natsu are both clueless about what goes on around them, but both are overwhelming powerful when serious. Both storm the word "NAKAMA," and care deeply for their companions, close, if not closer, than family. The most common similarity are the eye-pop comedic faces. Whenever something very surprising or unexpected pops up, the characters' eyes will pop out of their heads. Storyline doesn't have much in common, but both are long-term (OP's longer however) and both are equally comical and epic. read more
Both series are very similar to each other. They have similar character designs, the same level of goofy moments and are very whimsical. Both series have a wide arrangement of intense battles and very few deaths.
First of all the styles of drawing they are in are pretty similar.
Also some characters seem to act similar like they did in One Piece.
For example, the Zoro - Sanji relationship is similar to the Natsu - Gray relationship in Fairy Tail.
I really like it, so just watch it ;)
Lots of funny jokes and characters :)
Worth watching !! =^.^=
Both of these shows revolve around the relationship of friends and your comrades. They both have lots of action to offer, while having great story lines and adventures.
Basically, if you like one, you'll like the other.
you can't get anymore shounen then these 2
they main characters are exactly alike, their both baka's to the extreme yet they somehow make everyone like them.
they also has big plans when they were little and their trying to fulfill these dreams as we speak. their also trying to find "something" but what their looking for is different.
also Nami = Lucy in almost every aspect except hair colour. their both the "straight woman" in their jokes.
and chopper = Happy. cmon, their like mascots to each team. and you can't help but hug them at least once.
and Robin = Erza because they both have horrible pasts and their super strong and well known.
also the rivalry between natsu and grey are like zoro and sanji. competition in every aspect.
and boa hancock = juvia because they both love a main character and they act the same way to their lover(?), they also think they have extreme love rivals.
both have sword fighting, fist fighting, magical fighting, ect you name it. read more
Fairy Tail, just like One Piece, presents the power of friendship and the will to never give up. The characters in both series are similar, while both shows emphasize comedy scenes. The main difference is the world these heroes live in. One Piece takes place in a world of pirates and treasures, Fairy Tail in a world of magic and monsters. I'd say Fairy Tail is another version of One Piece.
Both Have Similar Art Works.
Both Main Characters (Natsu (Fairy Tail), Luffy (One Piece) Have Similar Eating Habits And Are Both Confident In Their Strength Allowing Fans To Fight Who Is Better.
Both Animes/Mangas Are Rivals To Each Other.
One Big Differents Is That One Piece Is Pure Strength And Pirates And Fairy Tail Is About Magic And Mages
-They both have action, comedy, fantasy & shounen in their genre
-Their main casts have some similarities
-The characters have strong bonds to each other
-Both of these anime will teach you the true meaning of friendship
Action, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Magic, Shounen, Superpowers, Unique character, Unique story as well, Both anime has a good comedy scenes, Romance scene, Not like the others that are corny when they tell jokes, Natsu from Fairy Tail is really Similiar to Monkey D. Luffy, And the others as well, For the manga, Some of the both anime characters really look the same, Lucy and Nami has the same... err, What do you call that? But if you compare this two young ladies they really have similar right? I just can't explain it as hell as I am.
It's almost the same story as for it, When I first think of Fairy Tail when I was not watching it still, I was thinking that the story was like One Piece, But then, Yes, It really was, Just the difference are One Piece main characters were pirates while the Fairy Tail ones are mages. read more
Main character is honest but a little silly.. in a good way. All the characters evolve in quite a slow rate during both series so when they do evolve it's always like you've been hoping and waiting for it which makes it even more awesome.
Love them both!
Luffy is very similar to Dragneel, Natsu, both show shows people who's traveling together which means their friends. both stick together and helping each other until the end. both of the show shows some comedy/ funny episodes.
Both are about being loyal to one another and protecting their nakama. Both have their serious and comical moments. The only differences are is that One Piece is about pirates and Fairy Tail is about Mages, but over all they are very much alike.
Natsu and Gray are like Sanji and Zoro, they both always argue and fight but can be a good team together however Natsu links with Luffy too.
They also have the 'Nakama are the most important' thing to it.
Natsu and Luffy are very alike for e.g: They beat people up if they hurt their friends.
Other then their difference in goal , they are pretty similar to each other . How the story develops, the characters behave , adventures of course ( fairy tale less ) . Hate to say it but yeah their ''logic'' seems pretty a like ( I will let you guess what i mean with that ) . Oh yeah another word ''easy''
Both Fairy Tail and One Piece are shounen animes and have a lot of similarities. The art quality may resemble one another(both authors have the art based off from dragon ball's author) and the way they draw the characters in both are really similar. As for as I've seen, people like Gildarts and Shanks, Rufus and Cavendish, and there's more out there where they look alike. The one major thing I think they have in common are that both are about a group of people who go through adventures fighting together and have a strong bond with one another. Also, theres a lot of emotional scenes based on what they go through as nakamas which can really get you all teary or even to the point you'll bawl. Based from my point of view, the things they do are completely different such as different goals for each character, but the storyline for both really resemble each other to the point some of the arcs are related. On top of that, really enjoy each and every one of the openings and endings they show for each new arcs that are airing. I think whether you like Fairy Tail or One Piece, you'll like the other since they have so much things in common. Definitely rate both of them 10/10!  read more
Both series involve the bonds of friendship, with One Piece having the relationships between the Strawhat crew while Fairy Tail involving the relationships between the Fairy Tail guild.
Both have a vast amount of characters that have interesting and unique backgrounds and different environments for the characters to explore.
Both main characters (Luffy and Natsu) are extremely similar as they have the ambition to protect their friends.
Both series have a large amount of action and use of supernatural powers.
They both include action, and mainly fight for their nakama. If anyone harms their nakama they both won't stand for it. Strange similarity: both main character have articles of clothing that they treasure, as well as both being generally viewed as 'stupid'. If you like One Piece, than I suggest giving Fairy Tail a go!
natsu is preety much luffy just with standing pink hair
lucy like to spend money and nami like to keep
zoro and erza are preety much the same just that erza has boobs
happy is chopper
and more more and more...
Both the main characters likes to sleep, eat and are pretty dumb, there is a time gap in both of these anime which means both of the main characters will become even more stronger. The only real difference is that One Piece is about pirates and Fairy Tail is about wizards and witches. BTW both of the main characters are pretty OP (Over Powered). Oh and Naruto is also the same as these 2 anime but Naruto is about ninjas.
Out of all the shounen anime there are, Fairy Tail is probably the most simmilar to One Piece. Both have some kind of powers (magic/devil fruit), caring for frends, fights as well as comedy. Main characters are very simmilar. Both are airheads with love for food, but can get very serious when their friends are in danger.
One Piece and Fairy Tail are almost pretty much alike (my opinion). But I like Fairy Tail better though because the arc isn't that slow like One Piece's.
- One arc of One Piece lasts about ONE year. An arc of Fairy Tail is about 3-4 months in average.
- The goal of the pirates of One Piece is to travel trough the sea and to achieve One Piece treasure. Fairy Tail doesn't necessarily have a big goal, but they do sign up for 'works' to achieve money to make the guild better. But there is one main character who has a goal: his name is Natsu Dragneel The Dragonslayer and his objective is to find his father Igneel. There are also two other Dragonslayers who want to find their mother and father but their goal isn't on high priority as that of Natsu.
- In One Piece the main characters are pirates and it goes about pirates. In Fairy Tail the main characters are mages and it goes about magic.
- In One Piece, the most important style of it is explore the world and achieve One Piece. Therefor they must go through hardship like battles, adventures,etc...
In Fairy Tail, the most important style of it is FRIENDSHIP. Thanks of that, the power of guild flows. There are many other guilds who are rivals against Fairy Tail (which is very awesome) and there are also many Dark Guilds. They are threats of Fairy Tail. Of course in One Piece, there is also the so-called 'nakamapower' but it isn't that remarkable as in Fairy Tail.
- I find them both awesome, but like I said: I find Fairy Tail better than One Piece because of one thing: slow paced arc in One Piece.
Those animes are very adventurous, funny and sometimes mysterious. There are many EPIC battles. You will meet different characters with different strengths, skills, and together they make a good team.  read more
If you enjoyed Fairy Tail you will sure love One Piece. Both have a strong main character that never gives up and has his goal in mind all the time . For the romance lovers I am sorry but there is not much love in this series.
If you like or enjoy One Piece, then you'll most definitely love Fairy Tail, and vice versa.
One Piece was a major inspiration for Fairy Tail, with one of the similarities being the protagonist of Fairy Tail, Natsu Dragneel, and protagonist of One Piece, Monkey D. Luffy, sharing multiple personality traits. The two animes also share one common set of motivation, friendship and loyalty, the show thrives off of these two things and it's what makes the heroes prevail in the end.
The sense of adventure and family is also a similarity the two shows possess, with each of the characters from both franchises having their own horrific and saddening backstory, the way they treat each other like family is a truly heartwarming experience.
One Piece is personally better in my opinion, because it's the source material for much of the action in Fairy Tail, however, I like both animes, and I believe you should watch or at least read the Fairy Tail franchise so you can know it's masterpieces as well. read more
Both anime focus on the story and progression of a group of people towards a main goal.Both anime also are similar in style ie both contain comedy,action,romance(although in a comical sense) and most importantly the strong bond of nakama.
Fairytail and One Piece both heavily revolve around one key point: friendship and the power behind it. Both Natsu and Luffy are really strong already, but hurt their friends and there’s no holding them back.
-Main protagonist are strong but stupid.
-Story emphasized on nakama/friends.
-Each character has a sad past which is shown and solved out in specific arcs.
-Main protagonist's guild/crew usually ends up causing an uproar or fighting higher ups.
-OP is about Pirates (many possessing power of Devil's Fruit) whereas FT is about Mages (possessing various magical powers).
Both are simple shounen manga that focus mostly on fights and humor, while adding some doses of ecchi. Both have characters that embark on adventures and encounter several enemies, while also making new friends. Both have similar art and animation, and teach similar ideals (such as the value of friendship).
One Piece and Fairy Tail have similar characters. The characters have similar personalities. One Piece and Fairy Tail have action, comedy, and very little romance since they are Shounen Jump titles. Both shows can get intense and serious, but most of the time it is pure humor. Hope you enjoy!
Chances are if you like Fairy Tail, you'll like One Piece. But if you like One Piece, you'll hate Fairy Tail because God know you can only be fan of one anime and One Piece is the best Shounen right?
Sure Fairy Tail is flawed, but so is One Piece. So if you like flawed shounen anime give it a shot, the music is good.
Almost Everything in FT and OP are same, including friends, humor, fights, characters. But the only difference is the theme of the story wich Fairy Tail including magicians invert One Piece including pirates though.
Overall i think that both of them are the best shounen anime that i have ever seen.
-Both are shounen anime (which says a lot)
-Both feature really strong friendship I guess?
-Both have really strong characters
But yeah if you liked fairy tail you will probably like One Piece due to both animes sharing genres, both also having pretty good fight scenes and close bonds between the characters.
Like, Naruto or Bleach. This anime is quite popular (in my opinion). Some characters are actually similar with one piece characters. Like Luffy and Natsu who are both main characters and both have the same personality (silly yet serious when they have to be), they both love their nakamas and think highly of them. The characters are not only the same thing, but there is also genre. They both contain adventure and comedy. It's the same "style" I should say. Both of them just makes you want to laugh out loud and just want to cheer them on during fights/battle scene. Also, they both have "series" should I say? or Arc. (in One Piece) They both contain lots of "chapters" and meet new friends along the way. I will definitely encourage you to try this one out! read more
I put off watching One Piece for so so SO long because I just didn't like the animation style. I'm sorry One Piece fans (IM ONE TOO NOW I LOVE THIS) but I just couldn't. I finally sucked it up and watched it. Sure, at the beginning it was ..... 5/10? But as you go on the animation gets better and the plot is AMAZING. I love One Piece so so much now. I'm stuck on episode 741 because I don't want to keep on watch because even THINKING bout waiting every week for it to come out is killing me :D
Also, Luffy gave me the same vibes as Natsu. They are both INCREDIBLY stupid and love eating, but they care so much about their friends it's unreal. I love all the characters they make me want to ride with them and sail out into the ocean.
It really is amazing what anime can do to you read more
It's hard to like one series without liking the other. A cheerful cast of characters, most of which with supernatural abilities, going on adventures and defeating enemies through bonds with one another. Both have the power to make you laugh, make you cry, make you excited, and make you feel. My love for One Piece made loving Fairy Tail very easy!
Have you ever seen anime with the main character being an exact copy of another character from another anime? Well, this is your chance. As a bonus, whether you've seen One Piece or Fairy Tail first, you'll say "Hey, what is Shanks doing in Fairy Tail?" or "Hey, what is Gildartz doing in One Piece?".
Prepare for an epic adventure because these two have lots of episodes and feelings, and they don't suffer from the Naruto-Filler syndrome.
Fairy Tail and One Piece are both well known long-running shonen anime with lots of action packed fights and a theme of friendship. The main characters, Natsu and Luffy, are both idiotic heroes who have a big appetite. Their friends include a hot tempered girl, a talking animal sidekick, a swordsman (in the case of FT, a swordswoman) and many, many supporting characters (also countless amount of villain groups). Also if you watch both series in dub, you will notice that a lot of OP characters share the same VA as the FT ones (the same can be said for a few in Japanese).
Personally i'm a huge OP fan since more than a decade and i have to say that it took me a while before actually giving a try to HxH 'cuz i wasn't sure if i would've liked it.. But. Woah against my expectations i really did like it more than i thought! Truth is that after i gave it a try, i couldn't stop watching it.
The more i was seeing it and the more it was giving me the same feeling that OP gives me. They have the same vibe and have the power to let you enjoyed more and more, this way your curiousity level also grows bigger and bigger by each episode. They really share a lot in common:
• first off: well, the genres, as you can see they both are Shonen, Adventure, Action, Superpowers genres.
• both main charas would look the "typical protagonists of a shonen serie" but they actually are able to surprise you, the more you get to know about them and their personalities.
• interesting enough, both protagonists' fathers seems to play a very important role (i would even dare to say "legendary"), plus obviously are very strong and full of mystery
• both stories are about dreams and all that takes to our main charas to realize them. In HxH, obviously, Gon wants to become an hunter; while in OP Luffy wants to become a pirate, but not just a normal one, he wants to become THE pirate King. In addition, their companions of both Gon and Luffy also have an ambition/purpose they want to achieve as well.
• both series face the adventure with a long Journey splitted in many arcs.
• still, both give a huge importance to friendship.
• let's not forget to mention that both of them are quite cured, as of course, like the protagonists, also the other characters in the series are intriguingly developed for the best together with their backgrounds, their actions and personalities.
• last but not least, the presence of the superpowers genre won't disappoint you either because "from big powers come big... battles!", yes, indeed lots of cool battles and the more you find out of the stories and the more you'll get interested by the way to fight! In HxH we have the "Nen" (Aura) and in OP we have the "Haki" (Ambition).. you'll really be amazed by the coolness of the battles!
As you can see a lot of stuff is a common point for those two series.
The only thing left me to say is: I seriously recommend both series, because they both worth it.
If you liked one of them, you'll probably love the another as well.
Because afterall, they both share one last significant thing: greatness. read more
Gon and Luffy have similar personalities.
Characters all have their own fighting style that they work on through the series, as well as their own goals. They both go through several arcs where the protagonist grows little by little. Both are on-going shounens.
Both have a young boy leaving home to explore the world and become the best in it, they both have dreams they would sacrifice their lives for, happy positive outlooks on every situation, a selection of nakama/friends who they would do anything to protect.
Both have comedy, action, fighting, adventure, challenges, friendship and a feel good vibe.
If you're a one piece fan i definitely recommend hunter x hunter, and vice versa.
An ambitious and particularly strong young boy setting on a journey in a vast mysterious world, full of unexplored lands and strange creatures. There he meets friends and face various dangers and enemies in order to fulfill his dream.
I would say that One Piece is more about adventure while HxH is more about battle. Maybe HxH is a bit darker too, and OP funnier, but both are great shows.
Both anime are similar in the themes of adventure, comedy and friendship.
The main characters are also similar in personality, with Luffy being more silly than Gon. There are also lots of interesting side characters and powers presented in both shows.
The adventure,comedy and feelings are all the same. Fighting for the nakama's by putting your life in danger. Its a must watch if you loved One Piece.
Everyone have different powers like in one piece there are devil fruits.
I don't know how to recommend anime's but I'm sure you will love Hunter X Hunter if you loved One Piece.
Gon and Luffy are very similar protagonists. They go on an adventure and make many friends along the way. The feeling of adventure that One Piece conveys is also found very often in Hunter x Hunter. Both shows have a vast world that draws you in and makes you want to learn more about it. Both shows can become much darker than a traditional shonen at some points. If you like One Piece, it's almost certain you will like Hunter x Hunter.
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 have lost their families and are on a quest to become the strongest. They have to struggel and give their all to achieve this, wich is why the series is so amazing to watch as you can see them develop episode after episode.
These are Jump's two greatest ongoing battle shonen. Both have massive worlds filled with numerous unique and like able characters. Both revolve around adventure and a charismatic MC that gains many allies along the way. If you are a fan of shonen (hell, if you are a fan of anime) then you should watch both of these.
Both are shonen anime that each have their fair share of adventures and fights. Both series have hyper, dumb, and funny main characters that are very interesting. The art in both series is also done very well.
While One Piece starts a lot slower than HxH (I'd recommend picking up at the Water 7 arc if you're impatient), and while its overall world and magic system is a lot more crazier and cartoony, it's definitely got the same sort of landmark effect on the heart, with tons of emotional moments, epic fights, characters that stay with you, and arcs that only get better and better as you go on.
Both main characters (Luffy and Gon) are looking for something in particular and it is said at the beginning of the series.
Side characters have somewhat similar goals. This can be seen mostly with Leori and Nami since they both want money.
-Both shows (in my opinion) start off decent and get better and better to the point of awesomeness.
-The concept of nen and haki are similar, plus both are introduced later on in the series.
-They are your typical shounen anime where the protagonist protect his friends and get stronger. Both have superpowers(main characters are very strong and op, altho luffy is more op then gon)
-characters aren't that similar but the relationships between characters are
- Both have the friendship theme, though it's more present in one piece
-both are currrently airing and prob won't end anytime soon
The best Battle Shounen already created. The best seller!
Absolutely no one overcomes this One Piece.
What enchants me most in this anime is a story that is exciting making you reach the point of tears.
Its plot is perfect, everything connects, making their fans create several theories about the story.
His universe is infinite, thus making it all happen or anything appear following its own logic.
His pace is slow and it is one of the causes of many episodes, but worth every minute spent with this masterpiece.
Another strong point is the comedy that will surely make you a good laugh.
the main characters so much alike....luffy and gon they both are innocent and well their personality is extremely alike....they both are in a hunt while gon is looking for his dad,luffy is looking for the treasure,and there are awesome adventures...while luffy has a crew with their own goals in one piece,gon's friends also have their own seprate goals but somehow they get along...
Gon, the main character, has some very strong similarities to Luffy when Luffy gets serious and the variety of powers and abilites of characters in this anime is similar to One Piece's devil fruit power variety. There are some AWESOME fights in this anime just like in One Piece and you will feel connected and cheer for the characters just like you do for the Straw Hat crew. Hunter x Hunter 2011 and One Piece are my two favorite anime. Please this anime is a great use of your time; it wont disappoint.
After watching the masterpiece one piece the only other thing that gave me the same feel was no other than hunter x hunter. In both of the anime the protagonist is a reckless guy who goes out on a journey to gain something that they want. During the adventure both of the protagonists meet many different kinds of people and go through different experiences and learn from that. Both of the series are extremely enjoyable and are worth watching.
Originating in shonen jump, and serialized practically a year apart, both mangas have been adapted into successful long running animes that have an excellent cast of characters, world building, and fantastic adventures.
They both still have plenty of stories to tell in an ever expanding universe, while still keeping pretty consistent rules previously established, power levels, foreshadowing, never forgetting characters, and building off of the huge casts to create more amazing arcs. Most of the time, both shows are character driven.
While both are shonen, both are so tonally different, yet they go in hand in hand with the way they blur the two sides of good and evil - Hunters being hunters, seeking out everything the world has to offer, and pirates, going against all odds to find what it truly means to be free. One Piece and Hunter x Hunter (2011) both are written differently, but in a way still have a lot in common.
I guess the closest thing I can compare them to are Peanut & Butter haha. Anyways, give both of these stories a watch and even if they may not hook you quickly, stick with it and it'll be worth the wait. Don't skip arcs because a lot of tiny details said maybe even 50 or 100s of episodes ago usually turn up 200x more important in the long run. read more
Both anime create a huge world with many fantastic aspects from wild creatures/people to unusual places. Hunter x Hunter is shorter but has higher quality episodes whereas One Piece spreads itself over God knows how many more episodes but does not loose in telling a great adventure story. Both give you different emotions (joy, sadness, thrill, hope) overtime as you become part of the main crew. One Piece might be harder to start due to the number of episodes but every arc is worth it in the end.
Enjoy Watching! :D
If you are watching one piece you will really like hunter x hunter also. Both anime have incredible good characters voices and both have badazz old man that will make you cry of badass-ness xDD
NETERO WHITEBEARD etc
They are both about adventure and the main character is young boy who's a simpleton. The second main character is the cool one who's not afraid to kill. Also the main character ,Gon, shares a lot of similarities to Goku and there's a ton of DBZ references in Hunter x Hunter.
The Best part about Hunter x Hunter and the reason as to why i like it more than One Piece is that people die in HxH.
Similar adventure style with lots of action, and mainly features around the protagonist (Gon in HXH and Luffy and his crew in One Piece). Like how Gon's goal was to become a Hunter etc, Luffy's goal is to become the pirate king, so they both have that similar sort of drive as characters.
Both anime are shounen with super powers, fight scenes, friends and adventure.
Both have funny and sad scenes.
Both have a carefree and a little bit stupid protagonists.
Both have badass characters and epic moments.
Both really great animes that I love, if you like One Piece, you should definitely watch Hunter X Hunter. If you like Shounen, this is the way to go. Luffy and Gon have adventures and fun while still striving towards their goal- Pirate King and the best Hunter. Although they may seem to be fooling around, when push comes to shove they are great friends you'd definitely want watching your back. Both anime have great side characters and plots. I would totally watch Hunter X Hunter!
Lighthearted anime with exciting fighting arc's (beware of filler episodes - HxH has less fillers).
Innocent and ambigious main character with badass friends, interesting side characters and a lot of plot twists.
In search for something very important to them.
Friendship is the key.
(Adventure, Action, Fantasy, Superpower, Shounen).
Hunter x Hunter is an amazing shonen anime about a boy named Gon who leaves his home to take on one of the toughest jobs in the world, being a hunter. No, he's not hunting deer or rabbits, he's looking for his dad, whom he hasn't seen since he was a baby. On the way, he meets Leorio, Kurapika, and Killua, who help him on his journey.
I've loved this show ever since I discovered it in 2014. It's got great animation, compelling characters, and great story arcs. If you like the first Hunter Exam arc, you'll probably like the rest.
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.
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.
•Both main characters in the series (Luffy from One Piece and Naruto from Naruto) share many similarities.
They also have the catch phrase where they want to be the best.
(ex. Luffy says, "He'll be the Pirate King" while Naruto says, "He'll be the Hokage"...
•The main characters have the "never give up attitude."
•Similar genres (action, comedy, fantasy, etc.)
•Both are long series.
Both series are primarily light-hearted adventure-series, but they also both have some pretty serious moments. (Though in Dragonball, they're mostly in the last third of the series.) One Piece is also partially inspired by Dragonball.
There is many similaries of Dragon Ball and One Piece. For example main characters are still eating something. Next is for example same style of humour, same style of battles, very similar animation, music...
They're both very liked and well-known
I recommend both of them
Funny enemies, funny fights, a lot of comedy and world travels with a group. One Piece, Dragon Ball, both are similar, of course, One Piece is inspired on Dragon Ball, Eichiro Oda is a big fan of Akira Toriyama and a big fan of your major work, dragon ball.
You Find many Dragon Ball's references in One piece. If you liked One Piece, watch dragon ball. You liked Dragon Ball, watch One Piece.
Both are great and fast-moving shonens about a goofy kid who has a beastly amount of fighting power (as well as superpowers... kind of) that adventures around and makes friends and all of that typical stuff, as well as having a lot of humor and packing in a lot of fights.
Story wise these series are completely different. The main reason they are similar is due to the characterization and humor. The main characters of both are especially similar because, personality wise, Luffy and Goku are almost completely in sync. They both have a naive charm about them, they both think about food even at the oddest times, and they both go after what they think is right. Luffy is a bit more stubborn, but if you enjoyed either one of these series because of the main character you'll likely enjoy the other.
Dragonball (just the original NOT Z, GT, or Kai. Although Dragon Ball Z is also good like One Pieace, not as good) is similar to OP in so many ways. The main character personality is very similar, the importance of all of the characters (whether they be minor or main characters), the attachment to all of the characters, the good voices and voice acting (in japanese), the good background music that is fit to every detail when it is played, the complicated storyline where everything ties together so well and everything makes sense together, and even the way that OP doesn't have a common drawing style, neither does DB (not that they're the same style or anything). All of these are in both anime, (and some in DBZ too), although I still personally like DB more than OP ^_^ . read more
Both are awesome adventure animes with fantasy elements thrown in to the mix. One Piece is more focused at character development and background, while Dragonball lacks in this the humor and action makes up for it. It's not often that i laugh while watching something but i did quite a bit of it during these shows, if you like the humor of one you'll probably like the other aswell.
Similar light-hearted seriousness. Both take place in unique and unexplained worlds. Though, in One Piece, the mystery of their world is part of the main storyline, and in Dragon Ball, the origin of Goku is more of the mystery. Both move at a faster pace than, say, Dragon Ball Z, or, buh, Naruto. Vibrant and colorful animation in both. Consistent mix of comedy and dramatic action.
Well, not only do the authors keep making the story more interesting as it goes a long, they also keep adding seemingly impossible things into the plot. Also both series have a goofy main character who always wants to protect his friends and family.
Both the main characters of the shows, Goku and Luffy, are very alike. They both love food, both are insanely strong and they both love their family/friends.
Fighting and overcoming foes are a big part of both shows. And they both have some humour in them.
Neverending Powerups. Innocent (or just dense) main character who is searching for a treasure that can fulfill their wishes (In case of One Piece it's becoming pirate king) and their encounters on the journey. Everything is possible with the Power of friendship.
Beware of filler episodes!
(Adventure, Comedy, Action, Fantasy, Superpower, Shounen)
Toriko and One Piece share a massive world which is build up brilliantly. Both feature a great cast of shounen characters that develop strongly throughout the series in a series of adventures and missions.
Toriko captures the same spirit that makes One Piece so awesome.
Overpowered battles with Ridiculous attacks, colourful style with nice animation, Over the top personalities. Just pure awesome from start to finish.
Both are maked by the same editor.
Both are about age.(One piece - Age of pirates | Toriko - Age of gastronomic)
Both are with adventure.
Both main characters are simple-minded.
Both main characters are very strong.
Both main charachters are strange.
If you liked one piece then you definitely like Toriko too only differences is that the Toriko is bishokuya which want to collect all food recipes but in One Piece the crew is looking treasure called One Piece. And Toriko has an own so called group like One Piece has a Pirate Crew. Both of these anime have an Adventure's and humor too.
-They both have some humor, but i Toriko have a lttle more though
-Both Toriko and Luffy loves food.
-Both are great shounen series with "fight for nakamas" plot, and goals characters have made their mind to accomplish.
-One of the biggest differences is that Toriko is about food, and One Piece is about Pirates
These two shows have pretty noticeable similarities. For one thing, Luffy and Toriko are practically the same. Both have excellent fighting skills, protect their nakama, unending appetites, ect. The other big similarity is that these shows both mainly focus on the adventures the characters take and the places they go. For that reason, both shows feature fun adventures with unique settings. They're both pretty enjoyable so give 'em a try.
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.
In both anime, main characters have similar ways of doing things. These ways are : pushing it to the end, never giving up or losing determination, having a dream to achieve that everyone else laughs or hardly believes. Another similarity about them is a strange charm makes other people know them, respect them or even follow them
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. Shippuuden is the continuation of the series Naruto, and it takes place after a 2-3 year time skip. One piece also has a time skip but way later in the series. One Piece wasn't split into a second series like Naruto.
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. read more
Do you wish that the characters in Naruto could be better fleshed out and more interesting? Are the fights not varied enough for you? If so you'll love One Piece. There are nine main characters that have each been fully fleshed out and have unique and powerful backstories. Every fight is unique because of the existence of devil fruits which grant the user rare powers that only they posses. You will fall in love with the characters. I have yet to run into a boring episode and there are over 560 episodes now. Just make sure to skip a few fillers but thats all pretty standard for a Shounen Anime. I like this show better than Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood. Give it a shot; you'll come to love the cartoony art style. The storyline is excellent. read more
I started watching one piece not so long ago, and as soon as I saw the first episode it reminded me so much of Naruto Shippuuden. Both main characters are special. They are funny, strong, and go after for what they believe in. The series intrigues you to keep watching more episodes. Some episodes will make you get a tissue and some will make you stop breathing of laughter. Now, lets talk about action! These fighting scenes and supernatural powers such as devil fruit or just nine tails make the fighting scenes so interesting. Personally, both of this series are my favorites, they're just so alike.  read more
Both series involve the bonds of friendship, with One Piece involving the relationships between the Strawhat crew while Naruto involving the bonds between the different ninjas of the Hidden Leaf village.
Both have a vast amount of characters that have interesting and unique backgrounds and different environments for the characters to explore.
Both main characters (Luffy and Naruto) are extremely similar as they have the ambition to protect their friends. Also, both protagonists have the ambition to rise to the very top with Luffy desiring to become the Pirate King and Naruto desiring to become the Hokage.
Both series have a large amount of action and use of supernatural powers. read more
They are both shounen anime. They have similar main protagonists who both have a dream luffy to be pirate king and naruto to be hokage. They are long on going series with many fans within the anime community, i mean seriously every person who has either watched naruto or one piece at least knows of the others existence. They are heavily influenced from DBZ as protagonists both share similar traits with goku. All in all, if you liked naruto then you will most likely like one piece.
1.Both anime are have the same atmosphere.
2.The main characters have similar traits and personalities.
3.There are many unique and fictional concepts in both anime.
4.The story line flows, though naruto is a bit more complex.
5.A moderate amount of humour
6.The length is fairly long, 300+ episodes
Both have stupid main characters which grows more mature during the series. Both main protagonist have a ridiculous dream which is very unlikely to achieve. Both series have a two year time skip where the main protagonist goes of training with there mentor's in Luffy's case it's Rayleigh and in Naruto's case it's Jiraiya. Both anime are action shounen.
The same kind of quirky humour for both, the same kind of brilliantly simple yet very well done animation. Both have unique characters, which combine to make a cleverly-thought-out storyline which is told in a similar fashion. Both great watches
They both have some what unique and abstract fight scenes.
Although one piece character design improves overtime
so if you start watching one piece I would say watch one of the
latest episodes first so you know what to look forward to XD
Comedy comes first for those who enjoy their laughs before anything else like me. Similar style of presentation with a lot of similarities. Soul eater looks like a simple comedy at first but like one piece drama and action can get pretty intense at times.
Both anime have a really really great story, and unique characters.. Special fight scenes in both anime, and always a 'funny' side.
Awesome char design (even if the style is different) for both series.
One Piece and Soul Eater have both the friendship priority for their story.
Those 2 anime are the best i ever found :3
I recommend One Piece as I would recommend the Dragon Ball Series. That is I would say it is a great beginner's anime. It has funny stuff all the way through its long number of episodes. It then begins to evolve somewhere in the 100's episodes and becomes fantastic with even better story lines and great battles. The emotion starts pouring out and I love it. I say Soul Eater is the crisper more serious version with a funny edge and One piece is the more funny with action edge. Both are great.
Both are really funny and the main character, Evans Soul Eater and Monkey D. Luffy are kinda strong and idiotic .......... but in my opinion, I wouldn't say Evans is as strong as Luffy. o well ... anyway .... these are both great adventure/comedy animes.
Because bleach and one piece are both action,comedy and adventure animes. The main character is a young man and he has special powers. They both have their friends to support them. They're both long ongoing series and they both got many plottwists. And both animes has got a lot of boobies, rangiku from bleach, nami for one piece
Action --- if it is what you are looking for than look no other than ONE PIECE....
This anime series is not only similar to Bleach but in fact I think even more than you wanted...
The Comedy, Drama, Action, Adventure, Surprise, Stupidy, Excitement, Tearful, and sooo oooo oooo much more to your expectation.....
As Bleach goes to the other world where spirits lies, One piece sails to many Unique and unbelievable islands that's full of surprise .....
Go for One piece, It is A hell of an adventure...
Both shows are about fighting, and the desire/need to become the strongest. The fight scenes are well done, and a bit drawn out in both shows. However, if the length of a fight in either show doesn't bother you, then you will like the other.
There is also a fair amount of humor to both shows. The main characters in both shows are funny and likable. Also, in both shows there is great comedy relief chacters (kon and usopp).
A thing to note is that one piece starts very slowly, but if you give it time it will get you hooked. Also, even though it is at 364 episodes, one piece, according to the creator, has been completely planned out, all the way to the ending, so there is an ending plan, they aren't just making stuff up to keep the show going. I only say that because many people find that with long animes they get redundant. read more
Like One Piece Bleach contains lots and lots of awesome action. Most of the time it's like.. nonstop action. Humor is a part of the anime too, just like in One Piece.
Both of them are ongoing series, and the animation of Bleach just kicks ass (at the current episodes, 200 and 450+). The story's done great and the characters are amazing, the development of the story and characters are done great too.
One Piece and Bleach are both shounen anime's, have a lot of episodes (and are still airing). They both contain adventure, action and comedy. One piece is less serious, has more comedy and therefore bleach is the more serious type of those two. Bleach plays somewhere around the presence while One Piece is completely mixed. I'd say it's a few years back but they already got bazooka's for example. Also here again, less serious. Both the main characters have a special power. Ichigo (Bleach) is a Shinigami and Luffy (One Piece) is a Rubber Man.
Both of these anime we're talking about fighting and both are like adventures. They sure like together. Both of the protagonist looks funny, but when they fight, they are actually strong, I suggest this one, both of this anime we're popular, so good.
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 characters are amazing and will make you want the next episode just to see what epic battles will come next.
One thing that really popped out of One Piece was hugely intense and epic fights with sad background. What anime would have fights like One Piece? Bleach has it. Bleach also has similarities in supernatural powers and sense of humour. The one who loves One Piece loves Bleach as well as other Shounen animes although One Piece is best and Bleach second.
Just as One Piece,Hunter x hunter is a pretty long shounen anime,both series can be really funny at times ,you will never get bored and always want to see the next episode,both anime have some awesome fights and also the characters are very likable,if you enjoy one of this anime you will most probably like the other one too.
Both main characters are tremendously similar. Both stubborn, with hidden strong sides, happy-go-lucky attitudes and they are really single minded. While Luffy goes for the title of Pirate king Gon chases the title of Hunter, with friends that will follow them through the deepest and most dangerous adventures.
One of the easiest recommendations ever. Hunter x Hunter and One Piece deliver top notch emotion and character development, that it's just hard to even avoid them. Any shounen fan should have seen these two animes, because they're bound to love them.
Both are about adventures and fights and magical things, HxH is more mature and also way more violent though, it also avoids all the cliche moments seen in most shonen making it more original.
I recommend watching the 2011 version for now
both main character are very carefree but when serious they are extremely strong.
unlike naruto or some other main stream or so, gintama and one piece doesn't have a side talk/story since no one really like it and get on with the main point. although gintama doesn't really have a main point to the story besides the comedy and fighting that randomly occurs
They both have similar storytelling methods. Both animes hardly take themselves seriously and crack joke after joke, but they have serious moments where the viewer can really connect to the characters.
-Similar comedic style, though obviously Gintama focuses more on it
-Both have characters that make the large amount of episodes worth it
-Both dwell into the themes of 'protecting your nakama' more naturally than other shonen
Sure... there's a large difference, but both are on the masterpiece level both are very comedic and there is action in both animes .
Do know that the first Episodes might be slow or average for many people. So it could be for you as well.
But it will improve a lot afterwards.
Both of them are long shounen series with the major themes of growth, friendship, teamwork, and loyalty. The main characters seem to be immature and irresponsible at first, but when the right time comes, they turn out to be badass. While one of them aspires to be the pirate king and collects crew mates, the other heads toward being a leader in an infamous branch of the mafia and increases the size of his "family." As more episodes go by, the series and characters grow to become more mature and serious; the series start off kind of slow and overly immature, but once they get going they are both really interesting and rather addictive.
Whatever you do, don't overlook these anime series because of the fillers or the characters in the beginning!  read more
A Lot Like In OP Yo Find Yourself Amazed By The Different Powers That The Characters Have In Each anime. As far as Character Personality Overlapping Is Concerned, I Feel There Is Quite The Amount.
A Fantastic Anime That Although Has Similarities To OP Has A Fair amount Of Differences, Such As Main Character Personalities, location and time Etc. The First 15 Eps Of KHR Are Rather Meh, In The Fact You See The Babies And Your Hesitant To Keep Watching. Watch Past This!! and You Will See Not Only The Story Unfolding And The Babies Getting purpose But Amazing Fight Scenes, A Definate Must See For All That Like OP. read more
Both series involve the bonds of friendship, with One Piece involving the close relationships between the Strawhat crew while Katekyo Hitman Reborn! involving the close relationships between the Vongola 10. Within those both groups, the protagonists' friends are extremely loyal to their leaders.
Both main characters (Luffy and Tsuna) are extremely similar as they have the ambition to protect their friends.
Both have a vast amount of characters that have interesting and unique backgrounds.
Both series have a large amount of action and use of supernatural powers.
One piece is about pirates and KHR is about Mafia, kinda like that i sugest taht who ever liked one piece or Reborn to watch each other becouse the similiartys is the development wich i think KHR surpasses One Piece and for the respect and loyality that wich gaurdia or nakama as for the main protagonist wich they would follow the Boss/Captain to the end of the world if needed there are various differences but both contain awesome fights, good characters goodstory and awesome character development.
Both anime are about gathering and forming a group of people with different abilities. Both lead males are very strong and are dedicated and willing to fight for the protection of his friends. Both Lambo and Chopper have a childlike personality. Both Ryohei and Luffy have the similar traits of lacking intelligence and uttering their fearlessness. Both Hibari and Zoro are extremely intimidating since each can easily frighten weaker opponents with just his glare.
If you're looking for another shounen, action anime, then try out Katekyo Hitman Reborn! This anime may be underrated and not as popular as mainstream anime, but it won't disappoint.
---------------------------------- Here comes a rant... Don't worry, it's worth the read ;)))) ---------------------------------------------------
This anime is about a boy named Sawada Tsunayoshi that is bad at everything. He isn't smart, athletic and can't even swim. One day, a baby arrives at his house and reveals that Tsuna is an upcoming Mafia Boss!! The baby also declares that he is the world's best hitman and he will tutor Tsuna to become a great Mafia Boss. You can already tell this is gonna be packed with comedy!
Unique characters are introduced one after another, each with their own quirks. This anime will make you love each one of them! Even a rude baby that never listens to anyone, cries a lot and throws grenades everywhere. Seriously tho, that baby was soo annoying. But he ended up to be very lovable.
The action in this anime is not purely based on power, but on how you figure out the tricks behind each attack and conquer them. The thing about this anime is that the enemies start to become lovable too :))))
SOOO TRY THIS ANIME OUT!
Be prepared that the action doesn't start until 20ish episodes in, but during that time, learn to love the numerous characters :)))) read more
They're both about friendship. There are also people with special abilities (Power Users in TLoU and those who ate the Devil's Fruit in OP). These animes are both shounen and main character is a little (maybe more than little) stupid.
Later in both animes the main characters form a 5-man team. They are also similar in some ways: Ueki -> Luffy (stupid, brave, friendly) ; Sano -> Zoro (strong, manly) ; Hideyoshi -> Usopp (liars, weak in combat) ; Mori -> Nami (not very strong in combat girls) ; Chopper -> Tenko.
Ueki, Kousuke is the same as Monkey D., Luffy almost in all ways :D he loves food and they both act dumb and they makes jokes if they are fighting and d.luffy fights with long things and ueki fight with long trees and they protect their friends and they talk the same and face expression is the same and his eyes and they believe people fast both animes they obtain power
both main characters have almost, if not the the same personality. There are a couple a similarities between luffy and ueki. nakama power theme and never-dying-will concepts. one major difference though is the setting itself. nonetheless, they have the same thematic aura and nature.
Ueki and Luffy are so similar with their friendship, morals, and whatnot that whenever I watch Law of Ueki it reminds me of One Piece and vice-versa.
Also, they have a concept with the superpowers and they vary between each character..One Piece has the Devil Fruit users and Law of Ueki has Power Users.
These two anime have very similar character designs. Both main characters respect friendship bonds, always want to eat, have a power due to some reason, and want to be something (great pirate in One Piece, God in Ueki).
- Main protagonist is very simple minded and do what they want
- They have strange powers that would't really relate to battle
- They both look up to someone who helped them in the past
- Lots of little bits of comedy with tons of battles
Both anime have characters with quirks or abilities from devil fruit.
Both MC's want to become very strong
Both anime have humor, lots of action, concentrated on friendship and scenes that touch people emotionally
-Male lead who wants to become great.
-Many characters have special powers. (Quirks in Boku no Hero, Devil's Fruit Abilities in One Piece)
-Not too childish but not too adult.
Anime with characters who have supernatural abilities are among some of the best, and One Piece & My Hero Academia are both great about giving us characters with out of the box powers we would never expect! Each show is filled with intense battles of characters using these super natural abilities, in a world where they're told from the start is too big for them to make a difference. If you like one, you're sure to like the other!
Both are great shonen series.of the best.
Friendship,Loyalty,Courage are really important.
Also they say that you have to fight for your dreams.
And the Gurren Brigade has somehow the same feeling as Luffy's crew x]
It'd be a spoiler to say the main reason I think these two are alike - but that aside, both have similar values in friendship (nakama) and family.
And both will absolutely blow your mind with story, and action sequences that'll have your blood pumping the whole way through!
PROTIP: Watch it.
Same amount of epicnes and action ,same humor style if i can said it and the girls have the same boovs somehow anyway they dont have the same story or the animation but can if you like one you surely love Gurren Lagann but if you like Gurren Lagann is not that you ll like one piece
both are kinda old school and when I say "old school" I mean the old episodes from One Piece, don't get my wrong new episodes are very good but I just love the old ones. OK so down to the point One piece has action goofy style and so does gurren lagann both have the serious moments and some not so serious,all in all I love both and recommend them for they hours of entertainment they gave me.
Both are about a person who is striving to be a king(although alibaba wasn't at first) while having help from comrades. Both animes also give importance to the power of friendship and continues improvement among the protagonists.
Both anime focuses on searching for friends/teammates ("nakama") while going on variety of adventures and each character has a unique personality as well as abilities that makes them strong and reputable, meeting different people and constantly being chased by the law enforcements in the story. Ultimately, the protagonist and his friends hope to obtain their goal.
Both series have:
* Protagonists are introduced in a bar where a once merry/drinking mood is interrupted by baddie
* solid world building that creates a distinct world
* misadventures and exploration
* Unique art style combination with a touch of Dragon Ball
* Similar slapstick humor (how do you poop vs. groping/panties
* historic setting (pirates & knights) with a new spin on classic stereotypes
* a bright color pallet of settings
* a rag tag band of loveable misfits
* Light Hearted at first glance with a more darker and mature back-drop in the back
* Similar feel
* Battle Shonen
Like One Piece, Nanatsu no Taizai(Seven Deadly Sins) has a general feeling of a very enjoyable happy-go-lucky mood punctuated with serious intensity fights while going on a exploration style adventure. Both of the anime's main protagonists are a group of misfits picking up members one by one, each of which all have special backgrounds making each of them overpowered compared to most fighters in their series though they still have to make an effort in fights. Due to being overpowered, neither series sees a lot of "level-up" events for their characters. And though each series protagonists like to act tough, they are very moral people at heart though they are seen in the public eye as evil whereas antagonists in both series are painted with a hero image. read more
-Both MCs are idiotic, have similar goals (pirate/magic king) and refuse to give up no matter how bad the situation is
-Both animes are all about friendship and rivalries
-Both MCs have unusual/rare powers/abilities.
Both are typical Shonen. And with typical main characters. With their unbreakable willpower, one is fighting to become King of Pirates while other strives to be Magic Emperor. They make friends on their way to greatness and overcome all the difficulties together.
If you like Shonen anime/manga, you should watch this.
Both of the main characters strive to become recognised in their own rights with never give up attitude
Both anime have characters with quirks or abilities .
Both anime have lots of humor, action, concentrated on friendship and scenes that touch people emotionally
-Both MC are baka, awesome and badass! :3
-Vash and Luffy are highly wanted with high price on them

-Both are classic, old school and awesome!
You'll probably love both! :p
Adventures of a wanted outlaw team against many dangerous villains, in a fantasy world, where there are many monsters and strange creatures, but also a lot of different powers: Akame ga Kill!'s "imperial arms" are like the "devil fruits"' powers.
The main character of both series have a specific goal that couldn't be achieved without the help of their nakama (companion.) The Strawhat Pirates of One piece and the Night Raid of Akame ga Kill are closely similar in the way that they are made of a bunch of interesting character who have to deal together against several common enemies and are founded on a great friendship relationship. Plus, they are all considered criminal by the government.
These stories evolve in an action, drama, adventure, comedy and fantasy genre.
The devils' fruits of One Piece and the teigus of Akame ga Kill bring to the wielder great and unique superpower.
Every character of both series are nicely done. Even the antagonists are very charismatics.
Both series present a corrupt society.
However, the battles in One Piece are funnier while the battles in Akame ga Kill are more gore. read more
When I first started watching One Piece I thought "wow, this is like a mixture between DragonBall and Pokemon."
- main characters are similar (kinda slow, don't give up, their hats, their hopes & dreams)
- strong theme of friendship, dreams and never giving up
- similar art style and very similar music
- lots of travelling and seeing new places
- each new crew member in One Piece is like a new Pokemon or team mate is Pokemon
If you like Pokemon you will hopefully like One Piece and vice versa
Both are really underestimated shows, mostly because of their horrible dubbed versions. Generally, people won't watch One Piece because of the art (that evolves after, though) and the number of episodes, and Pokémon because in the mind of most people, Pokémon = childish.
In short, both are great anime in their Japanese version, but are totally ruined by the Americans, turning them into childish and stupid shows.
I've found that pirate anime are hard to come by. OP focuses pretty much solely on pirates, but if you've been craving some more, AnY has an arc that is solely based around pirates.
Chosen family is also very present in both series, and the mains will do anything to protect their friends.
Occasionally allies are left behind, but they tend to be referenced and you get the feeling that they'll be back.
I think Akatsuki no Yona is a Shojo version of One Piece. It have adventure, action, and comedy like One Piece, and it also have romance while One Piece haven't. Both main characters recruiting more strong ally as the story goes by, the supporting characters are also have their unique powers. In the end, JaeHa = Sanji.
Shounen? Check. Fantasy? Check. Action? Check. Adventure? Check. Nakama? Check. Drama? Check. Idiot protagonists? Check. Hot women? Check.
One Piece and Fairy Tail are amazing action and adventure anime based in different but spectacular fantasy worlds. Fairy Tail is about various guilds, comprising of wizards and witches, that rely on Magical Power to compete with each other and subsequently complete jobs to make a living. On the other hand, the world of One Piece revolves around pirates and marines who rely on Haki and Devil Fruits.
All in all, you'll observe similar characters in both animes, similar humor, similar back stories, and both of them will give you goosebumps during their action sequence. read more
Similiar shounen story about a boy who wants to become something. In both animes, main character goes long way, meeting new powerful friends, rivals and enemies along the way. There are high spirited fights with unique characters, lots of fun.
Tatsumi Oga is a delinquent and carries around a naked Demon Baby, whereas Luffy is a rookie pirate that's aiming to be the Pirate King. Sure... there's a large difference, but both are very comedic and there is action in both animes. :)
both the main characters are strong.
both the main characters are underestimated and after the fight people are surprised and have scarry look on thier faces.
both are Action,Comedy, Fantasy and Shounen.
both the main characters has a girl beside them
both the characters are not very friendly with others but when it comes to all they fight together.
both the main character luffy and Oga Tatsumi are simple-minded.
both of the main character don't care about fighting anyone even if its somebody very strong and don't think about what will happen next.
Lots of fights, action, and crazy humor in both series.
both have happy face while fighting.
both are strong and simple minded yet they have good side too.
its hart to tell if the main character is pretend or he is really absence minded sometimes.
oga tatsumi acts as he doesn't care about his friends
one piece is about pirates and crew with his nakama [friends]while beelzebub is about demon world and rearing a baby and delinquents. read more
Arslan Senki and One Piece are both incredible stories of a boy who sets out on an amazing adventure in order to become king and gain freedom.
Both main protagonists are able to gain many followers as well as strong and loyal nakama to accompany them due there unique personalities.
Both anime have a great contrast of humor as well as great seriousness that go well together.
To anyone who likes One Piece you will definitely enjoy Arslan Senki the two anime are incredibly different but if 1 appeals to you the other is sure to do the same.
This might seem surprising, but there are a lot you will find in Xros Wars that you find from One Piece. For example, some parts in Xros Wars might seem really cheesy or lame, but there are parts give you a heartfelt feeling similar to what could be found in One Piece vice versa.
Both are fun adventure shonen about a young boy going on a journey.
For One Piece, it is about Luffy as he ventures through the oceans and Grandline. He collects crewmates and seeks to become the Pirate King, fighting off evil marines, other pirates, and overcoming other hurdles.
For Digimon Xros Wars, it is about Kudou Taiki and Shoutmon as they venture through the Digital Zones and world. They collect companion Digimon, Shoutmon seeks to become the Digimon King, and they fight off the tyrannical Bagra army, liberating zones and gathering fellow Digimon for their cause.
Both also have side characters who play important or recurring roles, such as Smoker or Kiriha, who have their own growth and development. The biggest difference is that Xros Wars is a complete tale while OP still likely has many more years to its story. read more
They're somehow similar...
1st- they're wanted. yup. in one piece luffy's gang is wanted too, right?
2nd- pirates ahoy! sand pirates to be exact..
3rd- well, it's adventure-friendship genre.. they're both good! i can tell!
besides, world destruction's graphic is awesome~
World Destruction and One piece are similar because...
I.) They both have animals that talk.
II.) The main characters are wanted.
III.) Both involve finding something important. Example: The One Piece (One piece) and The Destruction Code (World Destruction)
IV.) Both have pirates.
The protagonists of both series are very ambitious. Luffy wants to be the king of the pirates, while Bucky wants to be the king of the world. Both anime also have a strong inclination towards comedy, featuring some weird looking characters and creatures.
Both are shounen action anime with carefree and independent main characters who nevertheless have a strong loyalty to their friends. Also I found much of the humor in both to be more situational and less slapstick than in your typical shounen genre show (though each definitely has it's share of both types.)
Both series give off a similar feeling of an epic endless adventure.
Outlaw Star however, was only 26 episodes long.
Charimastic leads building up their crews, great female characters (somewhat rare in today's shounen titles), similar settings (Government, Criminals and Bounty hunters).
MC chasing his dream to wander around the world freely.
The concept of Pirates and Military.
Captain and his crew of unique and interesting bunch of people.
A valuable Treasure which the pirates and outlaws search for.
One Piece(OP) is about the Sea Voyage while Outlaw Star(OS) is about Space Journey.
In OP, the 2 main forces are Pirates and Navy on the Sea while there are 3 main forces drifting in space in OS .
Humor in both are very similar. I could be a really serious moment but it a split second you could start laughing at the random humor. They both have wacky characters, funny facial expressions with large mouths.
Luffy and Joe are similar in a few ways. They're really strong, have a lot a cool tricks up there sleeves, protect their friends, and are really funny. With both Luffy and Joe, when I first started watching they both came off as annoying but i grew to love 'em both.
Other than that VJ and OP both have great action scenes and a decent plot.
Ore Monogatari!! and One Piece both have the same kind of fun humour and stories. You get involved in the story and it's easy to get excited!
While One Piece is a shounen adventure story, Ore Monogatari!! has a completely different set of genres; shoujo romance. It's not your typical shoujo romance, mind you, it's full of genuine comedy and good characters.
So, if you're watching One Piece and craving a shoujo that doesn't feel like All Those Other Shoujo Animes™, try Ore Monogatari!! You'll be positively surprised! 8~D
Both heavily focus on shounen and comedy. The male protagonists both start off hopeless as they are plunged into a new world (Sakurag with Basketball and Luffy within the Grand Line). However, they grow and gain new friends and rivals along their journey.
- The protagonists Luffy and Touma are both all about protecting and saving others regardless of any consequences. They both have limited amount of power but somehow manage to survive many fights against most powerful villains. They continue to grow with each battle and gain new companions in their journey.
- Both are compromised mostly of comedy, action, and fantasy elements
These series both have very detailed fantasy worlds that pull you in. They're also the best ongoing shounen manga right now. One piece is still better, it's got a lot more content which helps with character development and world building.
this may look like a strange rec because one piece is over 800 & cowboy bebop is only 26 though they are similar because every one in the crew of both ships makes a crucial part in the story & some of one piece arcs remind me of episods in cowboy bebop
Both have similar feel to them and are shounenes with some badass battle scenes.
Protagonist's of both titles are very smart and unique characters with unusual skills.
Also both have very interesting style of art.
Both shows follows kids that start a journey into a world full of danger and risk. Although the world is dangerous, they still go on their journeys to achieve their goals. In Made In Abyss, Rika wants to find her mother and in One Piece, Luffy aims to become the pirate king
luffy and izayoi both want to find adventure/fun in the world both have power and both of them are crazy.
izayoi is more of a combination of luffy (the search for fun aspect), zoro (the fact that he is a badass), and sanji (the fact he is a bit perverted).
Both series tells about a adventure around the world (from Japan to Egypt in JoJo and from East Blue to Raftel in One Piece). Similiar fightinig abilities and the main characters have both a funny grandpa who has a lot great fights in the past. And in main crew of both are a Frenchman who is nice to ladies.
Both animes are 「B I Z A R R E」 at their own ways.
World construction is really wide.
Power can get really random sometimes.
P.S.: I tagged my favorite (animated) JoJo part but it's not the first one. You can check the order at the anime's page
Great action, funny, awesome fight scenes. Overpowerd characters, cool attacks etc. And if you're liking the animation in One piece, try One punch man. In my opinion One punch man has the best animation i've ever seen.
One punch man is a much shorter serie, it doesnt have as good as a story as one punch man. Not as great as character development as one piece does. BUT, one piece is one of a kind. No serie out there that I've seen comes near the adventureous and unique story of one piece. So dont try too hard finding a serie that does. Try One punch man instead and if you were looking for great comedy, great fight scenes and awesome animation. You're golden.
Thank me later ;)
Both are popular, long lasting shounen franchises that are still airing new material in 2017. Both anime balance boast a fine blend of comedy and action, with the main characters sharing a few similar traits. For instance it could be said that both Luffy and Goku love food more than anything else- except for the lives of their friends/nakama.
Toei Animation handles both series.
-Both have main characters that are very good at what they do
-However neither of these characters is the best yet, and their few losses greatly impact the plot
-Both of them feature a considerable amount of fanservice that manages to not feel forced and flows naturally
-Both of them focus on the bonds between your team mates overcoming an impossible wall (Polar Star Dorm vs Central/Straw Hat Pirates vs literally everyone)
-Neither of them have the buildup like other shonen. Characters are very strong to begin with and are presented with increasingly strong enemies to push them farther. However, it is executed in a way that makes it a goal, by setting a limit beforehand. (Elite 10, Yonko) read more
Both heavily focus on shounen and comedy. The male protagonists both start off hopeless as they are plunged into a new world (Kyosuke with Soccer and Luffy in the Grand Line). However, they grow and gain new friends and rivals along their journey.
Both main characters have the same goal: become the best of their worlds. While in Pokemon they travel in the lands, challenging people and dealing with the bad guys, in One Piece they travel in the sea, dealing with the bad guys and the ones that should be considered the "good guys". Both animes are slow, but will give you a weekly dose of entertainment
The main leader protagonists of these series (Bell / Luffy) are in pursuit of adventure. They are able to draw friends and comrades to their side rather easily. They each form small groups (a party / a pirate crew) in order to go deeper in their respective adventures. They get extremely stronger as the series progresses, and also have a personal strength benchmark that they're aiming for (Bell wants to catch up to Aiz, while Luffy wants to surpass Shanks). Both are disgusted by their own weaknesses.
Lily (of DanMachi) and Nami (of One Piece) also share some notable similarities in terms of, among other things, their initial actions towards the main protagonist and their respective backstories.  read more
If I were to describe Haikyuu!! in a single sentence to a friend, I'd call it the One Piece of Sports anime. Everyone knows One Piece. One Piece is an action anime that revolves around a no-name pirate who dreams big, makes an impact will not falter in his goal, has friends/crewmates who argue and get into funny situations (and pull hilarious faces) and much more in a epic story with some rivals and villains that you can't help but love because each character is so unique. And that also describes Haikyuu!! pretty well, too. Just replace "action" with "volleyball", "no-name pirate" with "short guy who can jump" and "crewmates" with "teammates". (And take out villains.) read more
Both anime are a battle royal where everyone is trying to survive and progress,
In K it's trying to promote your king so that he gains the power of all the kings.
In One Piece it a similar concept keep your king alive and get him to the end of the ocean, to become the pirate king.
All aboard the feels boat, because this is going to be the greatest journey of your life. Wanna travel across islands and discover what lies at the very end of the world? Then this is your last chance, last opportunity. But don't fasten your seat belt yet because you need to draw your weapon quite often, actually.
Smart and agile Lupin/Sanji have weakness and this weakness is women, especially beautiful, greedy and sly female trief Fujiko Mine/Nami who always tries to substitute and outwit him (as well as other men). Joins the party strong but clumsy samurai Goemon/Zoro and skillful shooter Daisuke Jigen/Usopp. Adventure atmosphere and almost identical art.
Well, in One Piece, Luffy and his nakama look for One Piece and in Wolf's Rain Kiba and his nakama look for Paradise. Both one piece and paradise are like legends but the main characters believe the legends and look for it. In both anime you can see the bond between comrades and how deep it is. Both contains a lot of good fighting scenes. In both animes, the main characters are not normal, one is about pirates and one is about wolf. Of course one piece is much lighter than wolf's rain but if you like either one, you'll like the other for sure!
Toriko captures the same spirit that makes One Piece so awesome.
Overpowered battles with Ridiculous attacks, colourful style with nice animation, Over the top personalities. Just pure awesome from start to finish.
Although Kekkaishi is more serious in several ways, and does a better job with animation and effects, One Piece is a shounen which can be compared to One Piece, tho' the size of the setting is different (as in huge and not huge :P). There are several characters which are similar in a few ways, so are some plots.
Similar expressive character design, animation and type of humour. Great characters and stories in both, but they're not much alike in these items. Goemon reminds me of Zoro and Fujiko resembles me of Nami, though.
A lot of people may think why would I relate these two anime, but they both do have a lot in common. If you're looking for a great comedy, epic fights and simply an entertaining time where you'll always be wanting for the next episode, if you've seen one of these, the other is a must definite. Both shows pack in so many hilarious moments in between their emotional and epic plotlines.
kiba and one piece share a common subject; freedom. In one piece this subject is bond with pirates. In kiba it is bond with a future world and a different world and eventually spirits. Roia has big boobs and so does nami, says enough I think
Leadership is a very difficult thing. Someone says you can’t learn it but only gain from God. For Luffy and Tylor it's absolutely true. Main screen time they acting like fools without realizing what’s really going on, but when time comes they somehow managing to turn everything for their own benefit. Two desperate heaven-born captains definitely put these series together.
If One Piece’s length and Captain Tylor’s release date doesn’t scary you go ahead and watch them. You won’t be disappointed because a great comedy is a one more reason to unite these series.
They're both funny shounen anime featuring afros and pandas. They're competetive in nature (though one's Devil's Fruit combat and the other's... bread contests...) and they both have ridiculous but lovable characters. We all know Suwabara wants to be Zoro.
One Piece is the ultimate adventure story whereas Accel World isn't as bold or ambitious with the scope of its world, it does successfully characterize adventure and villains nicely. With regards to style and plot line not much is the same. Although accel world does have similar humor, a funny main character, and is largely about the bonds of friendship overcoming hardships. Accel world develops its characters adequately within a timely manner but always leaves a question about their past to be answered at a later date so that you can be kept questioning, similar to certain situations in One Piece anime and manga.
Both series deal with friend ship. They also have a similar atmosphere and they both have an undeniable amount of humor. Plus these series are both shounen and deal with water. (little fishing in one piece and nothing about pirates in Tsuritama though.)
I really recommend both!! They both are very unique in every which way!! :D
these animes are very similar in genra wise there both two young boys who set out to make a goal and reach there dream they are also both carless leader types which makes both aanime have the same sence of comedy so if you like ao no exorcist then i would recommend one piece
Bobobo-bobo bo-bobo and One piece share similar humor. Both have lots of action. Both are not so serious (bobobo is not really serious at all). Both are amazing!!!
Bobobo uses his friends as shields most the time. Where Luffy has strong feeling for protecting his friends.
a really really great story, and unique characters..
really strong characters that develop/ get stronger/smarter over time
Epic battles that have you at the edge of your seat & make you want to watch the next episode
Awesome char design that gets better over time.
A friendship priority in their story.
They both have the same brand of humor. Additionally, both can draw you into the emotional moments of the story. Luffy is on a quest to become King of the Pirates, Ippo is on a quest to become stronger (aka, win the world feather weight championship). The composition, the mix of humor and seriousness, is the same. It doesn't really have similar setting and world , but that feeling you get from both anime are the same. Both are as great of a shonen series as the other.
The characters in Mar really resemble the main characters in One piece and they are all fighting for a goal. In Mar its to bring peace to Mar by defeating the Chess Pieces in a fighting contest(DBZ kinda thing) while in One Piece it's to find One Piece the ultimate pirate treasure (title is main goal :)
~Luffy/Ginta who are similar. They are both the leader as well.
~Zoro/Alviss both don't like the leader at 1st but they come to. Similar personalities
~Usuop/Jack seem really weak at 1st but they both want to get stronger.
~Nami/Dorothy are both sort of thieves and they try to con Luffy/Ginta when they 1st meet them
~Sanji/Nanashi are both . . . umn what do u call it . . . umn I guess womanizing pervz kinda people but they are both hilarious :D
Both anime are have the whole protect my friends and my goals things going for them they both have their hilarious moments and the OMG WOOHOO!!! FIGHT!! moments where your just screaming at how awesome it is (you know what I mean if you've had it) read more
1.both are shounen, adventure, action, fantasy and comedy series.
2. both happen in an imaginary alternate universe.
3. both animes start with a journey.
4. luffy want to be the king of pirates, sindbad want to become the king of the country he want to make. nonetheless both want to be kings.
5. both protagonist gather friends/nakamas during their journeys.
6. in both the main character and his friend travel over the seas and visit many places.
overall i think the adventure lovers will love both.
These two series are the best in the ultra long anime adventure genre. They have the most funny and memorable hero: Lupin & Luffy. You can not guess which one is the silliest of them but you will definitely know who inspired the most recent monkey. Their respective crew are both contains such enigmatic characters as: Goemon&Zoro, Jigen&Sanji, Fujiko&Nami etc. Both crew journeys the world together and they make history as they go both in their and in our universe!
