Jujutsu Kaisen
A red-haired protagonist, with an evil being inside him, who grants him more power and tries to overcome his consciousness. So this protagonist fights with bad guys/curses. There's an ongoing bromance and rivalry with a cool dark-haired guy, and a senior white-haired guy with face covered by mask (but the masks are in reverse). And many charismatic supporting characters.

Hello kakashi sensei little shift in theme but overall it all feels like same people. maybe naruto more about growing and juju is about getting in phase with epic battles without watching tons of fillers.

Both about OP orange haired main characters who hold a powerful dark entity sealed within them. This dark entity will often come out to aid in battle making the MC even more brokenly OP. Both masterpiece JUMP series.

Both MC is an Orphan / no parents Both story have a Japanese setting Both story starts the plot in a group consisting of 1 teacher and 3 students

-Both focus on a quartet of main characters, with three students and one teacher -Both protagonists have an extremely powerful demon inside of them that grants them adequate fighting power from the start -Both see students with unique powers as the primary cast, and have a skirmish with an opposing school early on in the story to demonstrate relative power levels -Both focus on a similar format, where the heroes will go on a mission, perform their duty and then return to home base, potentially being promoted. In both, missions contribute a little to the overarching story, usually in the form of a villain appearance.

~Itadori is like Naruto, both are jinchuriki holding a demon inside ~Fushiguro resembles and acts like sasuke, is Itadori friend and rival in a sense ~Kugisaki resembles and acts like sakura, but kugisaki isn;t useless like sakura ~Gojou is like Kakashi, cool and powerful and is like a teacher/senpai to the trio Basically it's Naruto but instead of ninjas it's demons and curses.

- Both feature a similar quartet of main characters which I will mention below: - Yuuji and Naruto are both naive protagonists with a strong drive to succeed, both possess a dark demon inside of them that grants them immense power - Megumi and Sasuke are both dark-haired guys with a cool exterior, they have a fiery friendship/rivalry with the protagonist - Nobara and Sakura are short-tempered girls, they are especially irritated by the protagonists' antics, although I think Nobara is a much more competent character compared to Sakura - Gojo and Kakashi are seniors who play the role of the teacher for the trio, they both have a   read more

The personalities of the 3 protagonists in Jujutsu Kaisen literally mirrors the trio from Naruto. The design of the MCs from Jujutsu Kaisen seems to be based off of Naruto too with the teacher Gojou resembling Kakashi especially.

Jujutsu Kaisenreminds me of Naruto in many ways. In the protagonist Itadori, Yuuji lives the strongest demon in the universe, Sukuna like in naruto kyuubi. teacher Gojou very reminds me of Kakashi they are gray-haired. kakashi reveals sharingan in battles and Gojou opens both eyes. I think if you are fans of Naruto you will definitely like Jujutsu Kaisen.

Both feature incredible powers used in dynamic and interesting fights, beautiful animation which is/was ahead of it's time, and both have Kakashi-sensei.

I think jujutsu can be considered the seinen cousin of naruto with obvious character parallels & similar sources for its magic system (咒术-忍术;jujutsu-ninjutsu). Also more likable characters & less filler too IMO.

Both are battle shounen anime. Protagonists of both series start off with having an "evil" entity sealed in them.

This series reminded me a lot of Naruto, just for the reseason that the main characters are like the same persons.

Do you like Naruto? Well you’d love Jujutsu Kaisen then. Each show has the same premise and character relationships. Gojo is like Kakashi, Itadori like Naruto, and so on. Plus the idea of some type of monster being associated with the main character like that is in both of these shows. They are amazingly well written, and they succeed in giving you just happiness. I fully recommend it because they are alike enough, to give you the same feeling of excitement, happiness, and just pure joy when watching it.

Both have a spiky haired doofus with a good heart for an MC on a quest to fight evil with some kind of monster living inside him. There's a rivalry with a cool dark-haired guy in each, and each teacher is a super powerful white-haired guy. The girl Nobara from Jujutsu Kaisen may not be in love with anyone like Sakura was, but they're totally sharing the "I like to be looking cute but love kicking butt" vibe.

has the same type of aspects of naruto, but is made in a very fashionable way
report Recommended by personnelaccount
both have a main "trio" of friends, in both jjk/naruto this is 2 boys and 1 girl along with a male sensei who guides them and is quite strong yet carefree. both are well regarded shonen series with good action and plot and both incorporate a good amount of comedy in between. both mc's have a power sealed inside them, in jjk its a curse called sukuna, in naruto its a nine tailed fox, kurama

If you enjoyed Naruto Jujutsu Kaisen is, pretty much, Naruto 2.0/ modern version.

A red-haired protagonist, with an evil being inside him (like nine tales), who grants him more power and tries to overcome his consciousness. So this protagonist fights with bad guys/curses. There's an ongoing bromance and rivalry with a cool dark-haired guy (Sasuke), and a senior white-haired guy with face covered by mask(Kakashi).Comes in a highschool to to become a jujutu and meets a girl that completes the team seven. The red-haired protagonist learns how the cursed energy (Chakra) works and learns how an attack that gathers cursed energy in hands and has a late impact (Rassengan).

Jujutsu Kaisen has a similar cast of characters to Naruto. Jujutsu Kaisen's main charcters are Gojo, Itadori, Fushiguro, and Kasumi. For example, Fushiguro has similar traits to Naruto's, Sasuke. Both characters have black hair, good at what they're doing, and they speak less than other chacters around them. Jujutsu Kaisen also have similarities in its plot. I won't go into much detail in the show's plot, but both shows kinda follows the Shounen fomula. Though Both of the protagonists has a monster or a strong being in their body. To sum it up, if you seen Naruto, watch Jujutsu Kaisen next.

Well main similarity is is the characters. now just like naruto theres a protaganist whos not the strongest in the group. he's fun and all. that is yuji in jjk and naruto in naruto lol. then we got the useless female main character. in naruto its sakura ofc and in jjk nobara. now nobara is not useless but she is the least powerful and is very weak. then we got the cool and badass male main character. in naruto its sasuke and in jjk its megumi. both of them r very cool and powerful. then we have the cool sensei. in naruto its kakashi and   read more

Depending on your perspective, Jujutsu Kaisen either takes inspiration from, or rips-off, from other popular shounen anime. In particular Jujutsu Kaisen borrows heavily from Naruto, just to name a few similarities: -the protagonist (Naruto/Itadori) is a hot-headed but good-natured boy with colorful spiky hair and a has an evil demon residing within him -his mentor (Kakashi/Gojou) is an irresponsible dude whose supper-power is contained in his eyes and thus always wears an eye-cover. -their companion (Sasuke/Fushiguro) is gloomy, dark-haired guy, who harbors a dark secret and whom the evil spirit wants to posses. -the villain (Orochimaru/Sukuna) is an evil immortal deity who wants to possess the protagonists -similar power systems,   read more

There are so many similarities between Naruto and Jujutsu Kaisen: - A powerful being once feared by society now lives in the body of a boy, becomes a source of powerful energy. Both kurama (naruto) and sukuna (jujutsu kaisen) are savages but became good companion to both main characters. - kakashi and gojou are basically same (only gojou is much funnier and more powerful), the appearance is similar - platinum hair with something to cover specific face feature. (and both are good looking and popular among anime watchers) - the friendship dynamic is so similar as well - 2 boys and 1 girl. 1 boy who has   read more

Both anime have elements of action and fantasy, as well as similar themes such as power struggles, friendship, betrayal, and a strong focus on strength and mastery of martial arts. In both anime, there are characters with supernatural abilities that they use in battles. In "Magical Battle," this is due to the presence of magical artifacts that give their owners special abilities, while in Naruto it's ninja techniques and jutsu. Both anime have a strong emphasis on character development and relationships, as well as emotional depth and empathy for the heroes. Finally, "Magical Battle" has its unique features, such as a focus on the line between good and   read more

Gojo and Kakashi might as well be the same character! Silver haired, overpowered teacher who at first Funny the students, or is at best aloof and carefree around them. The protagonists are also similar, in the sense that they have their own goals unrelated to the schools they attend, and getting stronger just happens to be the path to that goal

Jujutsu Kaisen draws heavy inspiration from Naruto, with many plot points in Jujutsu Kaisen bearing similarities to those in Naruto. I can't mention much without spoiling both series. However, I only recommend watching Jujutsu Kaisen if you want to watch fights due to its poor world-building and lack of meaningful character interactions. The main characters in Jujutsu Kaisen mirror the main characters in Naruto. Naruto = Yuji Sasuke = Megumi Sakura = Nobara Kakashi = Gojo Additionally, there are other characters I believe to be inspired by Naruto in design and personality. Shikamaru = Kokichi/Mechamaru Tsunade = Yuki There are only a few strong female characters in both series, and stronger male characters   read more
