Made in Abyss
Both of them are amazing adventure series with endlessly imaginative settings. Both of them have young and naive main characters that undergo a lot of development and go through a lot of hardships on their adventure, learning things the hard way. Both of them explore the idea of downwards vertical exploration, in Made in Abyss's case, it is the main driving force behind the story and with Hunter x Hunter it is part of one of the challenges from the first part of the series. Both of them have complex themes and dark aspects to them. Both of them aren't afraid to show how cruel the world can be. Both   read more

Adventure! The search for the unknown! Made in Abyss is quite similar to Hunter x Hunter given the fact that in both the animes, the main character goes out for adventure with his/her friends. The main character of Made in Abyss, Riko, goes into the abyss in search for her mother, whearas Gon. the main lead of HxH, adventures the vast Hunter world in search for his father.

Both anime start with the motivation of the protagonist wanting to find his/her parent, who are considered legendary at what they do. These series start in a somewhat light tone but get progressively darker as time passes. Their settings allow for very interesting worldbuilding that makes the viewer want to know more about the world of the characters, giving a fantastic adventure feeling.

Both have a great narrator. Both are very creative when it comes to creatures and scenery. (Made in Abyss a little more) Both have a duo with interesting chemistry. Both have great story. Both have good fights (Hunter fights are better so far though)

Two adventure anime following the paths of two kids as they explore an uncharted world in search for their mysterious parents. The universes are very different but in a way, the main characters and their circumstances are somewhat similar. Gon and Riko share this incredible positivity, determination, and the will to face adversity in order to find the truth about their parents, while Killua and Regu protect them like caring big brothers, build unbreakable bonds of friendship along the way, and overcome their limitations working as a team. The main difference consists in Hunter x Hunter (2011) being a more action and strategic fights oriented anime with   read more

Both have many things in common. A light-hearted adventure protagonized by 12-year-olds (even two characters, Reg and Killua, share voice actress), with dark tones and a bit of gore. The main characters explore different places and become, respectively, Cave Raiders and Hunters in order to meet with a familiar (Riko’s mother and Gon’s father). They’re also accompanied by other characters who have different objectives. Oh, and the antagonists are so likable, too. If you liked one of them, the other one is highly recommended

The two protagonists of both series (Gon - HxH / Riko - Mia) are looking for their parents with the help of their friends (Killua - HxH / Reg - Mia). Childish at first, but suddenly it starts to get dark.

A child looking for his parent in a world that looks innocent, but it can be very atmospheric and cruel. Both have an excellent adventure vibe.

Started as a happy go themed then it turns into a dark story. The blood is also present. The story has some interesting elements. Pretty a good watch.

>Gon is searching for his father, Riko is searching for his mother, the plot centers around it. Also, Lyza (Riko's mother) and Ging (Gon's Father) have very similar personalities. >At first, both looks childish, but suddenly becomes dark, cruel and "creepy". >Perfect pacing and worldbuilding. In both anime, the "universe" is a complete mystery to be discovered. >Good characterization for both protagonists, they become more "human" as the series progresses. >The way that the "system" of Hunters and Cavers works it's a little similar. The only significant difference, is that HxH has a thematic more focused on shounen elements, "super powers", "frenetic/intelligente battles" and "a plot that is separated   read more

Deceptively innocent in the beginning Follows 12 y/o protagonists Excellent Fantasy/adventure series Good world-building
report Recommended by Space_Jesus
Very similar setting and plot development. At first, both looks an average cliche anime, but suddenly becomes dense and dark with some "psychological" elements. A journey into the unknown is not only nakamas and happiness, you will find cruelty and adversities too. Both protagonist have the exact same motivation to get on a journey.

Looks childish, but it takes you by surprise... Both MC are childs trying to find their parents; Gon and Killua (HxH) relationship are very similar to Riko and Reg (MiA), the "Hunters" and the "Cavers" use some similar concepts. Both HxH and MiAbyss are adventure anime that presents an interesting worldbuilding, interesting characters combined with a realistic setting; no "friendship power", there's no protagonist trying to be the best, no super villains trying to destroy the world etc.

both anime are starting in a light hearted way but then develop an amazing dark plot and the story progresses from a light hearted kids anime to a dark shonen anime.

Want some adventurous anime? Well, than Hunter x Hunter (2011) and Made in Abyss are for you. And both happen to be pretty similar as well. First of all, the plot of both are very similar. Gon wants to find his father, and Riko wants to find her mother. Gon and Riko happen to share the same personality as well. There’s more similarities that just that, but those are the more obvious ones. However, there are things different between the two. Hunter x Hunter (2011) has a lot more action, while Made in Abyss has a lot more world-building. Regardless of the differences, I think fans of   read more

Both series follow two young children on their quest into the wider world and becoming a part of their desired profession, for Gon and Killua it's becoming a hunter, learning Nen and finding Gon's father, and for Riko and Reg it's descending into the abyss, finding Rikos mother and learning the origins of Reg. Both series also have a very similar visual and auditorial presentation, with upbeat and forest/tribal inspired music, as well as a lot of natural landscapes and bizarre and imaginative animals. Finally, the two main characters are also fairly similar too, Riko could be likened to the upbeat and optimistic Gon, both of which   read more

- Both of them are Adventure-Fantasy series. - In HxH, Gon goes on an adventure in search of his father and also wants to fulfill his dreams of becoming a hunter. - Similarly, In Made in Abyss, Riko searches for her mother and wants to go to the depths of the abyss. - HxH has more action compared to Made in Abyss, which is more of an Adventure-Mystery series.

Great adventure anime with amazing OSTs and amazing characters with a lot of different arcs that split the story in a variety of situations. Indeed there are dark arcs, backstory arcs, lively and happy arcs...Together they build up the plot of Hunter x Hunter and made in abyss too
