10. Fullmetal Alchemist


Synopsis – Edward Elric, a young, brilliant alchemist, has lost much in his twelve-year life: when he and his brother Alphonse try to resurrect their dead mother through the forbidden act of human transmutation, Edward loses his brother as well as two of his limbs. With his supreme alchemy skills, Edward binds Alphonse’s soul to a large suit of armor.

A year later, Edward, now promoted to the Fullmetal alchemist of the state, embarks on a journey with his younger brother to obtain the Philosopher’s Stone. The fabled mythical object is rumored to be capable of amplifying an alchemist’s abilities by leaps and bounds, thus allowing them to override the fundamental law of alchemy: to gain something, an alchemist must sacrifice something of equal value. Edward hopes to draw into the military’s resources to find the fabled stone and restore his and Alphonse’s bodies to normal. However, the Elric brothers soon discover that there is more to the legendary stone than meets the eye, as they are led to the epicenter of a far darker battle than they could have ever imagined.

Similarity –Both “Naruto” and “Fullmetal Alchemist” are series that easily are classified as mere fighting animes. In both cases, I would disagree with the “mere”-part. Both of these animes have plenty of fights, but the also have the ability to go deeper in a way that will make them appreciated not only by adolescents, but by adults as well, and as such, they both represent the cream of the crop of fighting anime.

9. Dragon Ball Z

Dragon Ball ZSynopsis – Goku is back with his new son, Gohan, but just when things are getting settled down, the adventures continue. Whether he is facing enemies such as Frieza, Cell, or Buu, Goku is proven to be an elite of his own and discovers his race, Saiyan and is able to reach Super Saiyan 3 form. He meets many new people, gaining allies and well as enemies, as he still finds time to raise a family and be the happy-go-lucky Saiyan he is.

Similarity – Being Akira Toriyama (Dragon Ball Z creator) the main inspiration for Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto, Naruto marks the starting point of many anime viewers. In the 90’s Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z was the Shonen anime that made a lot of people fan to the anime. In this time, Naruto is the Shonen anime that had made a lot of people fan to the anime being Naruto their first anime. Packed with a lot of action, martial arts fight (Ninjutsu) and the road to be the strongest, Naruto is an action anime that any DBZ fan would love and plus has a more thriller drama.

8. Katekyo Hitman Reborn!

Synopsis- There is no putting it lightly—Tsunayoshi Sawada is just no good. He is clumsy, talentless, and desperately in love with the school idol Kyouko Sasagawa, a girl so completely out of his league. Dubbed “Loser Tsuna” by his classmates, he seems to be the very personification of failure in the guise of a middle-schooler.

Tsuna’s boring life takes an extraordinary twist when he encounters the mysterious Reborn, who happens to be a hitman… and shockingly, a baby! Sent from the strongest Mafia family in Italy, Reborn is assigned the daunting mission of preparing the dull middle schooler to succeed the ninth boss of the notorious Vongola family, who is on the brink of retirement. The dull boy has a grueling road ahead, but with the help of his new criminal affiliates and his peculiar home tutor, perhaps even Loser Tsuna can achieve greatness.

Similarity – Katekyo Hitman Reborn is very similar to Naruto in some ways. First is the main character. Tsuna and Naruto are both no-goods at the start. Then some training is similar. Patience, determination, and strength are just a few. Try watching KHR know more. Trust me, you’ll love it! If not, comment me.

7. Nabari no Ou

Synopsis – Silent, apathetic, yet mischievous, 14-year-old Rokujou Miharu is the bearer of the hijutsu, “Shinrabanshou,” a powerful technique many ninja clans desire to possess to become the ruler of Nabari. Fellow classmate Kouichi and his English teacher Kumohira are both secretly Banten clan ninjas, pledging themselves to protect Miharu from his many attackers. Keeping apathetic, Miharu attempts to reject their invitation to join their ninja “club.” However, after numerous attacks, he finds no choice but to join their group as a means for his survival. Slowly, Miharu takes a step closer to becoming the ruler of Nabari.

Similarity – Both protagonists have a special ability that makes people chase them. Though most people would say they are completely different, both of the protagonists care deeply for the people around them and hate to see them hurt. Even to the point of giving themselves up to the people chasing them. Though Nabari no Ou is shorter than Naruto they both show that they get stronger to protect themselves and the ones around them. They are both quite similar if you think about it.

6. Black Clover

Black Clover
Synopsis – Asta, and Yuno were abandoned at the same church on the same day. Raised together as children, they came to know of the “Wizard King”—a title given to the strongest mage in the kingdom—and promised that they would compete against each other for the position of the next Wizard King. However, as they grew up, the stark difference between them became evident. While Yuno is able to wield magic with amazing power and control, Asta cannot use magic at all and desperately tries to awaken his powers by training physically.

When they reach the age of 15, Yuno is bestowed a spectacular Grimoire with a four-leaf clover, while Asta receives nothing. However, soon after, Yuno is attacked by a person named Lebuty, whose main purpose is to obtain Yuno’s Grimoire. Asta tries to fight Lebuty, but he is outmatched. Though without hope and on the brink of defeat, he finds the strength to continue when he hears Yuno’s voice. Unleashing his inner emotions in a rage, Asta receives a five-leaf clover Grimoire, a “Black Clover” giving him enough power to defeat Lebuty. A few days later, the two friends head out into the world, both seeking the same goal—to become the Wizard King!

Similarity – This anime is similar to Black Clover, because both the main characters (Asta in Black Clover) and (Naruto in Naruto), begin at the lowest of the low, but they push themselves all the way to the top and that is ”The Wizard King” in Black Clover and ”Hokage in Naruto”. Both characters also really like screaming XD. They both never give up, were failures in the beginning and have rivals. Both animes also consist rivalry, because Naruto wants to train harder and harder to match up with Sasuke and Asta has a rival named Yuno who also aims to be ”Wizard King”

5. Boku no Hero Academia

Boku no Hero Academia (My Hero Academia)
Synopsis –Mankind has developed superpowers known as “Quirks” with 80% of the population having some kind of superpower. These new abilities see the rise of both superheroes and villains. A prestigious school known as the The Hero Academy trains superpowered hopefuls into the heroes the world needs. Middle school student Izuku Midoriya wants to be a hero more than anything, but he’s part the 20% without a Quirk. Unwilling to give up his dream, he plans to take the exam and be accepted into a high school for budding heroes. Through a series of serendipitous events, he catches the eye of the greatest hero, All Might, who agrees to train him.

Similarity – The main protagonist from each series Naruto (Naruto) and Midoriya (BnHA) share a weakling persona in the world that they live in. They also share a dream of reaching the top of their respective societies (Hokage for Naruto and #1 Hero for Mirdoriy). Each protagonist is also paired with a much more gifted and talented rival. The setting is very different but both series revolve around students gaining the proper training, experience, and licensing needed to become a professional in their respective worlds (Ninjas in Naruto and Heroes in BnHA). Aside from the main characters the rest of the casts for both series are immense full of likable unique characters with diverse personalities, designs, and abilities. This is not limited to the heroes in either series as they both have a wonderful antagonist who is also likable and unique.

4. Hunter x Hunter (2011)

Hunter x Hunter
Synopsis – Gon Freecs’ father abandoned him as a baby in order to become a Hunter, an elite class with a license to go anywhere or do almost anything. Now 12 years old, Gon wishes to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a great Hunter. While Gon faces the unexpected challenges the Hunter Examination throws at him, he makes friends with three other candidates: Kurapika, Leorio, and Killua.

Similarity – Aside from the stubborn-ness and will-to-succeed-no-matter-what personalities of both lead characters Naruto (Naruto) and Gon (HxH), the display of a wide range of fighting styles using a certain energy-manipulating concept (chakra for Naruto; nen for HxH), the dangerous examinations storyline (Genin/Chuunin exams; Hunter exams), and the search for an important person (Naruto’s friend Sasuke; Gon’s dad Jin), the quality of humor and adventure in both anime gives the viewer similar highly enjoyable experience

3. Bleach

Bleach
Synopsis – Ichigo Kurosaki is a 15-year-old-boy who has an ability to see ghosts/spirits. Because of his ability, he is able to meet a female death god (AKA Shinigami) named Rukia Kuchiki. To save his family and friends from unwanted soul-eating spirits (Hollows), Rukia transfers her Shinigami powers to Ichigo. As Rukia takes on a human shell, together they solve mysteries involving spirits and Hollows until from the spirit world come two other Shinigami, who explain that it is illegal to transfer Shinigami powers to humans and that Rukia exceeded the time limit to stay in the human world. After they sentence her death for breaking the law, Ichigo snaps and swears to everyone he will retrieve Rukia by breaking into the spirit world.

Similarity – It has action, adventure, love and even some comedy which is what makes these two anime seem so similar. But there are some differences, of course, however, the 2 characters kurosaki Ichigo and Naruto have extremely similar personality traits such as their will to protect those around them and their will to survive no matter what!

2. One Piece

one pieceSynopsis – Gol D. Roger was known as the “Pirate King,” the strongest and most infamous being to have sailed the Grand Line. The capture and execution of Roger by the World Government brought a change throughout the world. His last words before his death revealed the existence of the greatest treasure in the world, One Piece. It was this revelation that brought about the Grand Age of Pirates, men who dreamed of finding One Piece—which promises an unlimited amount of riches and fame—and quite possibly the pinnacle of glory and the title of the Pirate King.

Enter Monkey D. Luffy, a 17-year-old boy who defies your standard definition of a pirate. Rather than the popular persona of a wicked, hardened, toothless pirate ransacking villages for fun, Luffy’s reason for being a pirate is one of pure wonder: the thought of an exciting adventure that leads him too intriguing people and ultimately, the promised treasure. Following in the footsteps of his childhood hero, Luffy and his crew travel across the Grand Line, experiencing crazy adventures, unveiling dark mysteries and battling strong enemies, all in order to reach the most coveted of all fortunes—One Piece.

Similarity – 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.

But Natsu isn’t just any ordinary kid, he’s a member of one of the world’s most infamous mage guilds: Fairy Tail.

Similarity – Both have amazing characters, with both knowing the pain of losing people important to them (Naruto & Natsu). They both are hot-headed and never back down from a challenge. It contains a lot of battles and awesome quotes and characters and you really should watch the both of them!
