7. Hunter x Hunter

Along the way to becoming an official Hunter, Gon befriends the lively doctor-in-training Leorio, vengeful Kurapika, and rebellious ex-assassin Killua.

Synopsis –Yoshimura Sumimura comes from a long line of “Kekkaishi,” individuals who have supernatural abilities and are able to destroy evil creatures called Ayakashi that venture into the human realm from time to time. The Ayakashi are demons that look to feast on the power emanating from the land of Karasumori, which also happens to be where Yoshimura’s high school is located. Now, Yoshimura must fight to protect his beloved school and hometown. Although, if it were up to him, he would rather be baking cakes than fighting off the ugly characters that show up at night.
Thankfully, Yoshimura isn’t the only one helping to keep the baddies at bay. His childhood friend and neighbor, Tokine Yukimura, joins him in this righteous battle. Despite the fact that they are from rival clans, these two make a fantastic team. And teamwork is something vital to fighting the evil that is closing in, as the Ayakashi attack in waves, looking to claim the land as their own, and a shadowy organization looks on, ready to pounce when the time is right…
Similarity – Both shows are fighting shounen set in a small living area (konohamaru and karasumori) and involve friendly competition.
There’s a larger underlying threat that will probably at some point be dealt with but it’s more focused on the people living there and comedy than it is on high stake battles.
Synopsis –One fateful day, Yuusuke Urameshi, a 14-year-old delinquent with a dim future, gets a miraculous chance to turn it all around when he throws himself in front of a moving car to save a young boy. His ultimate sacrifice is so out of character that the authorities of the spirit realm are not yet prepared to let him pass on. Koenma, heir to the throne of the spirit realm, offers Yuusuke an opportunity to regain his life through completion of a series of tasks. With the guidance of the death god Botan, he is to thwart evil presences on Earth as a Spirit Detective.
To help him on his venture, Yuusuke enlists ex-rival Kazuma Kuwabara, and two demons, Hiei and Kurama, who have criminal pasts. Together, they train and battle against enemies who would threaten humanity’s very existence.
Similarity – Both are obviously action-packed shounen, but also have relaxed moments (and entire episodes in Boruto’s case) to spend time with the characters, making them feel very real along with the world around them.
4. 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.

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.

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 – As well as Naruto, Black Clover is going to be the next big thing in anime. Somehow it gives me the same feeling as I’m watching Naruto.
Studio Pierrot is famously known for their work with the Bleach, Naruto, Boruto and Twin Star Exorcist series’. However, they soon might be known for another new animated production called Black Clover. The series is already being compared to other Shonen franchises such as One Piece and Fairy Tail, despite the series yet to premiere. In addition, the studio has already said that they want and expect Black Clover to be the next Naruto, as the two anime have a similar fan base
3. Dragon Ball Super
Synopsis – Seven years after the events of Dragon Ball Z, Earth is at peace, and its people live free from any dangers lurking in the universe. However, this peace is short-lived; a sleeping evil awakens in the dark reaches of the galaxy: Beerus, the ruthless God of Destruction.

Before long, they reach Earth where they encounter Gokuu Son, one of the planet’s mightiest warriors, and his similarly powerful friends.
Similarity – Dragon Ball Super was the Shonen anime that made a lot of people fan to the anime. In this time, Boruto 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, Boruto is an action anime that any DB fan would love and plus has a more thriller drama.
2. Boku no 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.

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. (from manga)
Similarity –BnHA and Boruto. Both are set in a world where heroes (BnHA) and ninjas (Boruto) are included in modern society. Where boys of the new generation turn out to be the hope for the stability of society, with the teaching of what the previous heroes left behind and their own conviction of being a hero.
Synopsis – Moments prior to Naruto Uzumaki’s birth, a huge demon known as the Kyuubi, the Nine-Tailed Fox, attacked Konohagakure, the Hidden Leaf Village, and wreaked havoc. In order to put an end to the Kyuubi’s rampage, the leader of the village, the Fourth Hokage, sacrificed his life and sealed the monstrous beast inside the newborn Naruto.
Now, Naruto is a hyperactive and knuckle-headed ninja still living in Konohagakure. Shunned because of the Kyuubi inside him, Naruto struggles to find his place in the village, while his burning desire to become the Hokage of Konohagakure leads him not only to some great new friends, but also some deadly foes.
Similarity – Boruto is actually Naruto’s son having same story like his father being alone where noruto is busy in his work. Trying to get attention having same attitude as father .This is, after all, the reason why Boruto’s full anime title is “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations.” It’s the next generation of Naruto and all the ninja hijinks everyone have so enjoyed in the past!
