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?

Let's say that the fight reminded me a tad of Dragonball Z. The plot and character development have nothing in common though. Due the fact El hazard is an OVA, the fights will be significantly shorter, though still havet he same feel. El Hazard has a tad more humor than DBZ though.

Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail

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?!

Both anime have character who'll goes to any length to protect their friends and family. The main characters in both anime are incredable strong and get stronger with each battle.  Both seem to have some hidden power locked inside and use that power to protect their friends. Although sometimes their battle seems impossible to win they manage to gather strength from their friends and win.

Well, both anime concentarate mostly on fighting. While in GP there’s some restrain in terms of how strong the characters may be, there’s absolutely none in DBZ so to speak, the cooler looking, the longer standing. Still both anime are really similiar. Even the way they are drawn is somewhat alike and there’s a huge time gap (1986-89, 2001). I know there’s many people that still love DBZ I’m one of them, (however I wouldn’t have the nerve to rewatch it now after 7-8 years) They, well We won’t be dissapointed in GP even a bit I’m absolutely sure of that

Narutimate Hero 3 OVA

Narutimate Hero 3 OVA

The village of Konoha is hosting a free-for-all ninja tournament, where the participants fight each other to the best of their skills. As the preliminaries begin and the village turns into a battlefield, Naruto eagerly rushes off for a chance to have a go against Kakashi, and heated match ups abound as people with similar ideas find their opponents of choice. Meanwhile, the less enthusiastic ninjas take it easy. A silly tournament is no reason to miss an afternoon nap or a bowl or a dozen of ramen, after all. Who will collect enough crystals to advance to the main tournament?

"Dragon Ball" and "Narutimate Hero" are alike because they are both about a never ending tournament of fights with good versus evil, and are filled with action. The characters learn much during the fights: tactics, techniques, and how to deal with anger or fear. Both anime are filled with action, a fighting spirit, and sometimes humour.:)

Needless

Needless

In the year 200X, World War III began. Special bombs destroyed parts of cities such as Tokyo, leaving decimation in their wake. Decades later, ground zero in Tokyo – an isolated section known as the Black Spot – remains an enigma. Its residents known as Needless possess strange powers such as the ability to control fire or telekinesis, and are constantly hunted down by Simeon, a large pharmaceutical company with sinister motives and Needless of their own to do their bidding. Young Cruz is part of a resistance to fight against Simeon and its Needless figurehead leader, Adam Arclight; but after the resistance is brutally killed by Simeon’s minions, he finds himself saved by a motley crew: Professor Gido, scantily-clad Eve and badass Blade. Together, the gang fends off Simeon’s attacks and tries to discover the truth behind the corporation’s actions. What is Simeon really after, and why do they desperately want to find Fragments?

While most would think Needless has alot more in common with Gurren Lagann, Needless is essentially an Adult Version of Dragonball Z, The action in Needless is very Over-the-top, in both style and impact (such as calling out names of moves, charging attacks etc). Both Blade and Goku exemplify strength and slowly become the strongest throughout each show and they both also have a very childish side to them (Blade's being much more *cough* suggestive), The pacing is fast, but there still is an underlinging story going on. All in All, if the kid in you likes Dragonball Z, the Adult in You will love Needless the same way (or vice versa)
