If you likedOne Piece
...then you might likeFairy Tail
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 :)
Let's start: - 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, 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
The drawing style of both anime looks very alike. The main character is a powerful yet a dumb and therefor a funny person. Both anime got the "Nakama" factor.
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.

both animes are filled with humor and the main character are very alike.
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.

It has the same kind of feeling when watching this anime. The character models and personalities are somewhat similar to the characters of One Piece.
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.

Both shows are based on friends and making your own family with those friends. Main characters of both shows continuously grow stronger to help their friends. The groups of friends from both shows are all a bunch of misfits who somehow all get along.
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 read more

if you loved One Piece please try out Fairy Tail its has so many simularitys u may mistake it to be related to one peice in some way :P
The concepts are nearly parallel to each other but one face remains the same One Piece is and always will be better.
They both have a main group of characters, all with their weird quirks and personalities. Plus they both have awesome adventures, good action, an interesting story, and theyre both hilarious.
They use the same recipe, and are both very well made, except that Fairy Tail is intended for a bit more mature audiences.
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 !! =^.^=

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.

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!
Both the protagonists are looking for something while using powers that most other people don't have. They both value friendship very much, as is clearly seen in both animes.

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.

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!

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 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.
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.
Both are battle shounen anime about a group of friends, working together as a team both show also have a very similar art style and very likeable cast of characters that all have great backstories, most of all both shows are about friendship.
They both have similar characters and a similar story line. One Piece has pirate crews and Fairy Tale has mage guilds.
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.

Similarities: -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. Dissimilarities: -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).

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.

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.

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.
Funny moments. They have their own friends to protect. Action packed anime. The authors are student and teacher, I think.

The power of friendships is very prominent. Then, the main character for both have a similar personality. The fighting scene is very epic and about how to finish that fighting is so amazing. Ps : Many characters have a similar character design
One Piece and Fairy Tail have a lot in common. Both are long running battle shōnen anime. Both anime have the same vibe, and the main protagonists in both series, Luffy and Natsu, have similar personalities. The art style is also very similar as well! The biggest differences are the story and the fact that One Piece is about pirates while Fairy Tail is about mages…but aside from that, they are very similar anime!

If you like fun characters, hero's, pirates and wizards, fun adventures and the power of friendship ;) u should definitely give fairy tail a try! its in my opinion one of the most underrated big shonen! One piece is so similar to fairytail, but where fairy tail is more about guilds and wizards is one piece about pirates! and one piece is so good, if ur a fan of fairy tail or not u will definitely like it!
Great adventures! Fantasy and action! They both have well-written characters that are both serious and humorous. Both plots have amazing character develoments and amazing arcs. You can see in both Fairy Tail and One Piece the characters going out of their way to help their friends, going on adventures and fighting in great battles for personal and greater reasons. Luffy is like Natsu, a little silly boy with big dreams who loves adventures and his friends. If you love Fairy Tail there is no way you won 't like One Piece.
1. Similar characters; if you have seen One Piece, you can pretty much tell that some characters have similar personalities as with Natsu=Luffy Loke=Sanji Gray=Zoro 2. timeskip; this also happens in the middle of each series where the characters have some change of appearance and become stronger 3. Lore; the lore of both series are very deep and mysterious 4. Friendship; both seem to have this close-bonded trait with each member, but in Fairy Tail, friendship makes them get powered up in fights, while in one piece, it's more strength and skill based
