Fullmetal Alchemist is very similar to Naruto. There main guys in FMA want to find out a way to regenerate their bodies and parts. In Naruto, the main guy wants to find a way be the best ninja ever and wants to became hokage which is the leading ninja of Konohana village. There are supernatural powers in both anime and the worlds of these anime are fantastic. Both are must-watch anime.
Both illustrates similar themes. The main setting of both anime are in an unusual time period. The plots are based off of supernatural characters. Both are the sequels to a previous, juvenile version of it, hence more mature character developments happen.
Both are set in a parallel world with fictional countries. Both deal with politics, war, revenge, immortal beings and supernatural powers. The main characters: Edward and Naruto have some similarities in personality and suffering. The main character goals develop from personal goals to public ones and from protecting those who they love to saving the world. Both can make you laugh a lot and cry a lot, really full of emotions, they have many great characters, great story, strong plot, epic action, touching emotions, great relations and perfect OST.
Great visuals and action packed with a complex story line and loads of characters. Some awesome action, some emotional moments.
Both are shounen anime, so i would say that both the MC have that same shounen-MC-personality. Not only the MC, but several characters share the same personality. Naruto and Edward, Jiraiya and Curtis, Greed and Sasuke, Scar and Gaara, and many more. Also, both have the same kind of ending/final battle.
Fullmetal Alchemist : Brotherhood got the same main strengths that makes Naruto a wonderful series.
1. Characters and Character Development
2.The World Building
Despite only having 64 episodes , FMA B manages to succeed at both of those elements.
Both also follows similar themes.
Like Naruto, FMA: Brotherhood has a huge lineup of diverse characters whom you will love and look forward to in every episode. Much like ninjutsu used by shinobis, the power used by alchemists in this series will remind you of summoning techniques. Another similarity worth mentioning is that Naruto somehow represents Edward; they both have a unique motivational drive to succeed despite all the boundaries they have to face. If you want a more mature anime similar to Naruto Shippuden, FMA: Brotherhood is one epic anime you don’t want to miss.
