Rin Okumura is a seemingly ordinary boy living at the Southern Cross Boys' Monastery. One day, however, Rin encounters a boy who has been possessed by a demon. Amidst the struggle, he not only awakens latent powers sealed within him, but also learns that he is the son of Satan! No longer able to stay under the protection of the church and with his very existence straddling the line between human and demon, Rin decides to fight against his parentage and joins the True Cross Order as an exorcist. Now, the teen must attend the True Cross Academy and begin special exorcist training alongside his new comrades all while keeping his identity a secret; but can the son of Satan really become a true exorcist?
Naruto Uzumaki is a young ninja who bears a great power hidden inside him, a power that has isolated him from the rest of his village. As such, his only dream is to become the Hokage - the most powerful ninja, and leader of the village; but first he needs to graduate! With his inability to perform even the most basic ninja techniques, it seems that all Naruto has going for him is his determination to succeed no matter what. Teamed up with the genius Sasuke, book-smart Sakura, and their team leader Kakashi, Naruto embarks on his quest to become the Hokage. But with outside forces posing a threat to the entire Hidden Leaf village, Naruto discovers that he must become much stronger if he ever wants to realize his dream and protect the friendships he's forged.
Both series focus on male lead characters that have qualities about themselves that they have no control over. Naruto with the demon fox, and Rin is Satan's son. Both characters are hunted and mistreated in similar ways. Naruto and Rin also strive towards the better side of their humanity and fight to protect people they love. They also have similar goal sets that are very long term - Naruto wants to be Hokage, and Rin wants to defeat Satan. Both of these goals are nobel and very hard to obtain. If you like(d) Blue Exorcist or Naruto i would series check whatever series you haven't seen out.
Both are centered around "demon" children who don't quite belong and are finding their way in some sort of academy/school. For those who like shounen action animes, these two are pretty similar except for their run time.
The setting and feel of the two series are vastly different, but both have two brothers fighting demons and supernatural powers. The main villians in both series is Satan (Lucifer). Also, one of the brothers in both series shares a similar fate.
Ao no Exorcist is mainstream shounen, while Supernatural is definitely seinen. However, if you like one, you'll like the other.
If you enjoy brothers fighting against demons look no further than these 2 titles. Plenty of action, drama, and hearache to be found in both. Supernatural is aimed at an older audience but I'm sure you'll appreciate one if you enjoyed the other.
Over a century ago, mankind was devoured by giant beings of unknown intelligence and origin known as Titans – creatures that eat humans alive indiscriminately and for no apparent reason. The remaining population has managed to survive the last hundred years only by building a multi-walled city capable of keeping the Titans at bay, training military recruits to patrol the perimeter and gather intelligence about their mysterious foe. Eren and Mikasa have lived a relatively peaceful life behind the city's walls, but when a massive Titan appears, smashing the outer barrier and unleashing a wave of terror, their lives are brutally changed forever...
Blue Exorcist and Attack on Titan are similar in a few ways; both have main characters who are not what they thought they were. Both main characters have a close friend who is like/is a brother. Both main characters have 'Daddy Issues'. Both main characters end up losing control over themselves and can hurt a lot of people they care about. Both main characters have lost a parent in a horrific event.
Not only that, but there is action sences, comedy sences, minor romance sences, and a few others. While Attack on Titan may be a bit bloody for some, it's a very good anime with the same amount of episodes as Blue Exorcist.
In world where flesh-eating monsters roam the streets, only one organization has the means to save civilization from annihilation: Red Shield, a specially-organized unit designed to fight these monsters, and the only weapon that can destroy them: Saya. Awakened from a 30-year sleep, Saya is thrust into a modern world which she has no memories of, and is troubled by a past filled only with bloodshed and sadness. With the undying love and support of her family and friends, she struggles to gain the strength to move forward and regain the pieces of her shattered memories.
Both of these anime feature monsters/demons which hide under the cover of being human. Only a select few people can actually fight them.
In both of these anime, the protagonist is presented with the choice of either race to fight for. While constantly seen as a threat and "the only hope" at the same time.

Staz isn’t what you’d call a traditional vampire. He’s fascinated by human culture - especially anime, manga and video games - and unlike his brethren, he has no interest in sucking people dry. As a prominent street boss in the demon world, Staz has never desired to go to to the human world. But when a human girl accidentally wanders into his territory, is eaten by a carnivorous plant and comes back as a ghost, Staz makes a life-changing decision: he’ll help resurrect this lovely lady any way he can, even if it means heading to Earth! But the path won’t be easy, what with having no idea how to complete the task and his own laziness standing in the way.
Blood Lad and Blue Exorcist has somewhat the same ring to it. They are quite comedic, deal with demon world. Male protagonists looks kinda similar, but one of them is a demon, while other is vampire-demon and they are strong to begin with, but become even more stronger later on. Atmosphere in both animes is quite similar too, but Blue Exorcist has more school in it.
