Synopsis:

Five years have passed since Goku and his friends defeated Piccolo Jr. and restored peace to the planet. Gohan - Goku's son - and a variety of good, bad, and morally ambiguous characters are back, and perpetually not ready for action! Aliens, androids, and magicians all hatch evil plots to destroy the world and it's up to Goku to save the Earth once more - that is, once he and his comrades train plentifully in preparation.  Enemies will become friends and power levels will rise to unimaginable levels, but even with the help of the legendary Dragon Balls and Shen Long will it be enough to save Earth from ultimate destruction?

Flame of Recca

Flame of Recca

Recca dreams of one day becoming an excellent ninja, but in this day and age ninjas are only talked about in history lessons. While playing his ninja games, he meets a mysterious woman that reveals to Recca his past, his bond with the powerful Hokage clan, and the special flame power that resides within him. Meanwhile, the evil Kurei has plans to gather the madougu from the Hokage clan so that he may take control over the elemental powers, but Recca is determined to master his flame and stop Kurei’s evil plans. Does he have what it takes to live up to his own expectations and put a stop to Kurei himself?

If you liked the fighting in DBZ, you'll likely appreciate the quality combat in Flame of Recca. Though the fighting in Recca tends to be more 'down to earth,' depending more on characters thinking up (or lucking out with) clever and/or suicidal strategies to win their tougher fights, there is still plenty of DBZish fighting as well.

You cannot pass up this series. If Recca is your favorite character, you will love DBZ. The only difference here is throwing around Ki versus Fire.

Get Backers

Get Backers

Ban Midou and Ginji Amano are the Get Backers. With a 99 percent success rate in returning lost or stolen property to its original owners, they will do anything for the right price. Midou and Ginji often get hired for seemingly ordinary jobs that turn out to be more difficult than they appear; and whether it’s finding a doll for a girl, retrieving a stolen rare violin or getting mixed up with the mob, they have many adventures with plenty of petty squabbles along the way!

What I like with DBZ is the amazing superpowers they have. With Get Backers you won't be disappointed if that's what you're looking for.
DeathCrunch

Both series heavily involve fighting and constantly out thinking and playing the opponent with your convenient hidden super move.Both involve all the old rivals, secret powers, sensei characters and fem-fatales you liked from the other series.

Hajime no Ippo

Hajime no Ippo

Ippo Makunouchi is a loser. He has no friends, he spends his free time helping his mom with work, and he's constantly being beaten up by bullies. But that all changes when one day he's saved from another beating by Takamura, an up-and-coming boxer. Soon, Ippo turns his life around with a passion for the newly discovered sport, but his new lifestyle is far from easy! Before he can even dream of becoming champion, he'll have to overcome a slew of fierce rivals and learn what 'dedication' really means.

Despite one having superpowers and the other does not, you wouldn't notice watching each of them! Over the top fights are where both excel, although Hajime No Ippo has more soul. You might want to start with DBZ just because it's a classic.

CriticalPoint

While you wont see energy attacks and over the top power from an alien race, you will see a ton of character development amongst a group of fighters. While these fighters are boxers, they do train and learn from their mistakes. There are some comedic moments here, probably the same or more than Dragonball Z. I recommend this, as it's not just an ordinary bland sports anime.

History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi

History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi

Shirahama "weak legs" Kenichi is a typical high school student with typical problems: he's frequently bullied and tends to run away in the face of his enemies. Things change when Kenichi meets Furinji Miu, whose grandfather runs a dojo; and not knowing what he's getting himself into, he signs up to become a disciple. As Kenichi's life-threatening training continues and he becomes more and more powerful, he inadvertently becomes the target of the deadly gang called Ragnarok. With mental and physical challenges ahead, can Kenichi survive his encounters with Ragnarok, or will the masters of his dojo get to him first?

Both of these series share a love of fighting and use it as the central part of their respective stories. This fighting is given new meanings by its constant changing and the growing of the main characters as they learn to fight better and defeat stronger and stronger enemies.

wimbley

If you liked Kenichi or Dragon Ball Z you'd like the other because both have main characters that are constantly working towards getting stronger to protect the ones they love/defeat a stronger enemy. Both animes have a strong sense of justice. If you like one you will surely like the other.

InuYasha

InuYasha

Kagome is a normal high school girl who falls into a well, transporting her back in time to the feudal era. Upon her arrival to this world, she mercifully unleashes Inuyasha, a half demon. As if this isn't enough, she also discovers that she is the bearer of the Shikon no Tama, a jewel of great spiritual power, a jewel which has just shattered into a million shards. Now, along with Miroku the priest, Sango the demon hunter, and Shippou the mischievious fox-demon, they must set out to find the Shikon shards and defeat the evils of the demon Naraku.

Akuma
Dragon Ball Z and Inuyasha go hand in hand. Inuyasha is loaded with battle action, and humor. Constantly seeking to get stronger, Inuyasha is alot like Guko... he even has his own type of powerful transformation. Just like in Dragon Ball Z, the characters of Inu yasha are seeking items of great value, that when put together are a source of unimagineable power. Dragon Ball Z fans Must See Inuyasha, one of my most highly recommended anime series.
caitlin

Both Inu Yasha and Dragon Ball Z have many extended fights over a large amount of episodes, and have a plot that revolves around collecting magical stones of sorts to gain power in some sort of way. As the underlying themes are relatively similar, one can assume that if you liked one, you would like the other.
