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.
Naruto and Dragon Ball are similar titles, I think more so than Naruto and Dragon Ball Z. Both Naruto and DB have young heroes who basically start off alone, have great hidden strengths, and have kind hearts. These heroes gain new friends and incredible strength along their journeys. Both series have a nice blend of both action and comedy as well.
The two main characters of DB and Naruto, Goku and Naruto, are pretty similar - they both have a somewhat unexplained hidden power that if they learned to control, would be incredible. They both have that naivety too, which makes them the adorable main characters that they are.
Both shows are about a young boy who grows up alone, although Goku's grandpa raised him...it is clear that he's been by himself for a while. It also shows how incredibly dumb the protagonist in both of the series are, but they are still incredible and unpredictable fighters. The fights in both series are similiar as well. Trust me if you like Dragon Ball you will definetely like Naruto.
If you like action/adveture then either one is for you! Both follow a young hero that must get stronger in order to protect those close to him. They both also have thier funny moments too!
If you like your action/adventure with a side order of laughter then get watching!
There is young boy who's growing with powers and protecting world from bad guys. Super powers, magic, fights etc. - you can find it in both.
If you like Dragonball, you'll also like Naruto because it's an anime with lots of action, with a large number of characters, where each is worked carefully and especially, where each character has its own objective. Not only feel a special affection for the main character, but for all the characters, we understand even the villains. More importantly there is a link between all the characters, what makes the story even more incredible, is absolutely spectacular.
Both cover the journey of a young hero with a variety of different characters. Goku's teacher Master Roshi is much like Jiraiya.
Plus we get two enemies who eventually becomes a good guys, much like the Sand Siblings.
Lastly, both have exciting and over-the-top action which has the character gain in speed and power over time.
Dragon Ball and Naruto are typical shounen anime. They feature a lot of characters and great fights. Dragon Ball is more fighting centric while Naruto has a more detailed plot and some emotional moments. Note that Naruto has a huge amount of pointless fillers in the last cca. 70 episodes.
Long ago the infamous Gol D. Roger was the strongest and most powerful pirate on the seas. As he was about to be executed he revealed that he hid all of his wealth, including the legendary treasure known as One Piece, on an island at the end of the Grand Line - a treacherous and truly unpredictable sea. Monkey D. Luffy is a spirited, energetic and somewhat dim-witted young man with a very big dream: to find One Piece and become the Pirate King! However Luffy is no ordinary boy, as when he was younger he ate one of the Devil's Fruits and gained its power to become a Rubber Man. Now in this grand age of pirates Luffy sets out to gather a crew and sail to the most dangerous sea in the world so that he can fulfill his dream... and maybe even his appetite!
Both DB and OP are pretty laid-back shounen anime. They both have a prominent adventure feeling to them while keeping the fights powerful, and are true eye candy for the real fighting fans.
Both DB and OP are pretty laid-back shounen anime. They both have a prominent adventure feeling to them while keeping the fights powerful.
The hero travel over the world with their best friends searching for treasures and adventures having a lot of fun. & he likes to eat.
If you liked Dragonball, you will also like this another classic. A story of a boy who wants to become a pirate and venture seas. Of course a pirate cannot be a pirate without fighting so this boy, Luffy, often finds himself in trouble with strong opponents when he seeks crewmates for his pirate crew who doesn't even have a proper ship. You hardly can say a row boat is a proper ship for pirating.
Hopefully you will enjoy this comedy as much as I do because you will enjoy this so much you want to become one of the Luffy's crewmates.
I think Dragon Ball is the de facto standard of shounen anime and it's a real classic in the genre. In my opinion One Piece tops Dragon Ball in almost every aspect so if you have already seen Dragon Ball you might have lots of fun and excitement with OP.Also if you watch One Piece then I definitely recommend checking Dragon Ball because it has great characters and exciting adventures.
Dragon Ball was the series that inspired One Piece's creator. You can see a lot of similarity between Goku and Luffy. Both are packed full of action and comedy - along with an insanely high number of episodes! Either enjoy the classic Dragon Ball, or watch a classic inspired modern One Piece. May shounen never end!
If you loved the great storyline, action and characters in Dragon Ball, I think you'll really enjoy One Piece as well.
Both have comedy mixed in with some epic action. The main characters are similar. Goku and Luffy are all around floating silly characters. Krillern and Ussop are also the same since at first they're kind of cowards and than they develop. They both travel in groups fighting evil or privates. Which will you watch, evil, private, or both?
One Piece is Dragon Ball of nowadays for sure. I don't have to write more, do I? Anyway I recommend reading manga instead of watching anime
Yusuke Urameshi was a normal middle school punk until he was hit and killed by a car, while saving a child. His selfless action earned him the right to gain his life back and serve as a detective of the spirit world, keeping the world of the living safe from a myriad of demons. But being reborn has its price: Yusuke must hatch a spirit beast that will develop according to his actions, and if he doesn't act in a good and honest manner, it will eat his soul. Can Yusuke protect the human and spirit worlds and still manage to save himself in the process?
Both Dragon Ball and YYH are fighting anime with a good story. If you like one, I recommend seeing the other as well.
Both YYH and Dragonball have some similarities like many fighting scenes that increase in intensity as the series go on, and a good dose of comedy. If you liked Yu Yu (especially the first half) then you most likely will also enjoy Dragonball; and the same is true in reverse.
Dragon Ball and Yu Yu Hakusho have very similar moods and intense fight scenes. If you are a fan of that, you should watch them both.
Dragon Ball and Yu Yu Hakusho are both very similar. Fight, fight, fight, huge tournament, fight fight and repeat.
Both are very good action/martial arts animes.
Both series have a similar storytelling style and pacing, with a minimal amount of filler. Story arcs go by quickly enough not to drag and enough humor to keep things ultimately light-hearted (and to make those few serious moments that much more poignant).
Yu Yu Hakusho does have a little more "spirit fighting" than Dragon Ball, but there are still plenty of physical punches being landed for all you martial arts fans.
Lucy is a seventeen-year-old mage with the power to summon stellar spirits, but what she really wants to do is join a guild - and not just any guild. She has her eyes set on Fairy Tail, a notoriously reckless and outrageous group of magic users who are likely to be drunk or destroying buildings and towns in the process of completing a job! While in town one day Lucy meets a perpetually-seasick boy named Natsu who, through a series of events, reveals to her that he's none other than the fire-eating mage Salamander of Fairy Tail! Lucy is finally able to join Fairy Tail and quickly begins to take on odd jobs with Natsu and his gang for fame and profit. Along with her fiery friend, Happy the flying cat, Natsu's archrival Gray and their overseer the invincible and beautiful Erza, Lucy sets forth for epic adventures that leave an epic amount of destruction in their wake. After all, destroying a city or five doesn't matter as long as they get the job done... right?!
If you have seen one of these then you should definitely check out the other because these are among the best shounen anime to date.
dragon ball and faiy tail are similar. you have the main char that will fight for the people they love for and gain there strength that way. in my opingion ft is better but dragonball has aged extermely well and should be proud of its self
These two are similar in that they are long running shonens, obviously. But more importantly they share a similar purpose, that is for the shows to be fun. No Shippuden-esque pseudo darkness, no failed attempts to compete with the quality of story shorter anime provide, just top quality comedy and action thrown at your face from start to finish.

both great and very interesting animes, both have the concept of fighting but very great main characters
