Synopsis:

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?!

One Piece

One Piece
  • TV (641+ eps)
  • 1999 - ?

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!

While set in different worlds, both series share a similar feel for the main characters, storyline, and artwork

Szwagier

Both are Shounen battle shows focused on a group of friends, working together as a team ( they are called "guild" in Fairly tail, and "pirate crew" in One Piece).

Both shows focus on "fighting to protect your comrades" . Both shift focus between comedic moments of peace and serious times of battles. Also the drawing style and the mood is really similar. If you enjoy one of the shows, you will probably enjoy the other one as well.

cassiesheepgirl

Both Fairy Tail and One Piece are similar in quite a few ways. Both have a similar style of comedy - and a hefty amount of it to boot. They also share the same mix of comedy and madcap action, while the main protagonists, Natsu and Luffy are both exceedingly strong young guys with a huge appetite. Finally, with a similar visual style, I'd say that if you liked one then you will like the other.

badazz5001

BOuth series have simmiler animation simmiler charecters with simmiler goals. Also the fight scens and thems resmsble each outher, also bouth take place in a facinating cool worlds

Kari5

Both these shows are battle focused comedies. They involve a group of friends who travel together for generally individual goals. Their humor and art styles are very similar. Fans of one will no doubt like the other as well.

BushidoSan

Both have a lot in common - both shounen anime with very similar styles, lots of comedy and similar main characters.

KurisuKun

First thing you'll notice about these two is the very similar Artwork, but its more than that. Fairy Tail just has the same "vibe' One Piece has with it's colorfull envirements, creativly enemies and sidecharacters...the list goes on. The fighting style varies but like any good Shounen, it's well planned out and provides memorable battles. What stands out most between these Animé's is the trademark humour wich is highly enjoyable for both young and old. Highly recommended! ^^

namos7

Fairy Tail is a very funny series exactly as One Piece.Natsu and Luffy are very similarily drawn but they also share the same character.They devour everything can be eaten and have absolutely no limits.I recommend watching both of them if you are an adventure/comedy type!

rebornhitman

They have a really good plot. Each character is unique.

If you like adventure-action type anime then you should watch one piece.

Ghernie

Same style of drawing, similar storyline, identical characters, congruous feelings

Both animes are just great. I'm surprised that they haven't been made by same person.

Nevo

Fairy Tail and One Piece both share the same type of Main Character and drawing style. They both want to help protect the precious things they care about. Both characters are alike because of attitude of not giving up and trying their best.

littlehawk01

Fairy Tail and One Piece are very similar in many ways. 1. The main characters are very much about protecting and finghting with their freinds.           2. They would never leave a comrade behind no matter what the situation.                                  If you like one, you'll like the other.

chisato

Because both anime have a main caracter with many people who hare supporting them [In One Piece it's all the Nakama (friend) of Luffy and in Fairy Tail it's all the guild of Fairy Tail who are supporting all the member from the guild] and a lot of people who want to detroy them [In One piece it's the marine and in Fairy Tail it's the other guild].

In both anime there also a lot of fight and both anime have they're own type of power [In Fairy Tail it's the magic and in One piece it's the Devil Fruit].

Anathemus

Fairy Tail and One Piece are clearly very similar, especially the HUGE amount of characters, the story arcs are short and the artwork is even very similar, especially in the manga.

paganfire

This anime has the same feel and vibe as the other. Strong group of characters taking on tasks while working on protecting a girl. Not a bad match up over all.

KittyEmperor

If you liked one series of these series then you will most likely end up liking the other.  Both series focus around a group of individuals working together for some common purpose.  With each having the group of people facing both individual battles that they have to fight alone and battles in which they manage to get through it by working together as a team.  In each series we also always end up with the main cast causing huge amounts of trouble from time to time but with things always working out in the end by some miracle or another.  Also in each series we end up with head strong young male leads you end up just charging into things without giving it much thought.  There is also quite a bit of humor in each series so that in between all the fighting and sometimes serious tones the viewers stay entertained through various jokes and funny moments.

Koryo

Both series are very sensitive about characters relations. Their friendship is most important thing in both of them. Naming nakama, adventures, same sense of humour, great fun and many more.

Kernoll

There was a joke around the internet when Fairy Tail started to air: I liked it better when it was called One Piece. And almost a year after that there is still similarity. Both have simmilar animation, storyline and even main characters have simmilar personality. Overall i think that if you enjoyed One piece or Fairy Tail you would like the other...

awpaperwings

For anyone that enjoys watching Fairy Tale, I cannot recommend One Piece enough. Although the main characters of the two are very similar, to me One Piece feels much more planned out, funnier and more quality all around. For example, in One Piece, the length of each fight from fight to fight is very varied, and the skills Luffy uses are creative and reanimated each time, while in Fairy Tale, the skill animation sequences are obviously recycled.

zelos

When I start to watch fairy tail i think that was the typical shounen intro, introduce the main girl, introduce the hero that not seems to be nobody and the the powerful entry, i think that goes to be pretty similar to Naruto so i feel a bit disappointment. But then star the real fights i think everything goes to be done by Natsu (that is something that i really hate everything done by the main character no way) but then gray had real fights, Lucy entry in the fights so she no become the typical girl don´t do anything more than cry and shout the main character´s name, and then appear the great Erza i really love her . Natsu and Luffy are pretty similar (but Luffy is more cool XD) the other characters had a lot of personality and they are very original, Fights are intense they don´t have to fight along 20 ep, 1 ep for fight is enough and for put all the drama/intensity of the fight (main fight not include XD).

I think Fairy tail´s creator learn a lot of things about shounen for Oda, they have to do a few steps more to catch One Piece but i think they go in the good way 

93lpsa

it's like one piece with magicians

it's like fairy tail with pirates

is there really an minimum for this recommendation. oke well

luffy-natsu both feel the same way about there pirate crew or guild

AC1

Although the shows are, at the surface, extremely different, they feel eerily the same. Both are shounen anime that focus around a small team of characters, and both have similar animation and humor incorporated. Both are a great watch, and I find it hard to imagine somebody liking one but not the other.

FatalGlory

Both shows have similar characters and comedy I find the whole pirate crew and guild thing very similar, as well as the way the characters interact Eg. Nami & Lucy try to control Natsu & Luffy.Both shows can switch from comedy to serious in a matter of seconds and are very fun to watch.

TheVampireLady

Honestly these two animes are like long lost siblings. They have somewhat similiar art and they have filled with comedy and epic fights.

Also the charas are very similiar ex. Natsu and Luffy is a lot alike; Stupid and eats alot :D

If you liked one, you will surely like the other!

gretzky99

Fairy Tail is very similar to One Piece. Their core concepts are pretty much the same (magic - devil's fruits, magicians - pirates, guilds - pirate crews) and they are centered around a bunch of friends who always gets involved in exciting adventures.

Shadowandmatt

i recomend it because both are pretty open as far as what can happen the world they are vast and you never know what will happen next.

m0m0

When i think about Fairy Tail I am reminded of One Piece. Each anime has a fairly young "main" hero. Luffy and Natsu are both young, hot headed and have an underlying leadership ability that has not yet fully showed itself yet. Both also have unlimited potentail yet to be actived. If we move futher out, both anime have a team/nakama around the "main" hero. The team members each have their own strengths and weakneses that contribute to the team. Each anime also has a journey involved in the story. In One Piece the story is evident, but in Fairy Tail it is not as evident, but for each character, an un discovered journey exists. Theme wise, both animes deal with fictional topics, pirates with super powers in One Piece and people with super powers in Fairy Tail. Over all I enjoy One Piece more but would recomend both equally!!!

Fairy3D

In some way i got the feeling that the artwork are pretty similer. both thease animes have a similer action style and both Natsu and Luffy are pretty similer they are hot headed and optimistic. I'f you're lookin for a anime that is similer with Fairy Tail check this one out :)

DeDaan

Both anime's are about the main character who wants to complete his goal and has its own kind of way of making it. During that journey he makes new friends who will help to reach this goal. Also both anime's include good fighting scene's.

SwordsNKnives

Both Fairy Tail and One Piece are very similar and both overall great shows. Both the main characters in the shows share a very similar personality. Both shows are set in an alternate world where there are people who are different from others. In One Piece there are stong fighters who have powers and in Fairy Tail there are people who can use magic. If you like either one of the shows you will without a doubt like the other.

ripghoti

Like other reviews, these animes have similar characters, plots, etc.

What grabs me with both is the mixture of fun and fighting.  The otherworldly powers of both series make them ripe with fuel for the imagination.  No matter if it's finding a pirate with a bizzare devil fruit power or a wizard with unique spells, the creativity is in a continual flow.  Not just in battle, but in comedy as well.  The empty headed antics of a phenominal fighter clashing with friends or the quirks of various characters keep you wondering what will happen next.

Of you like one, definatly try out the other.  You will not be disapointed.

jigzwafu

It's so much the same in a deeper way.. like their friendship and the bonds they share together.. it's just like it ^^

Shiraiyuki

One Piece and Fairy tail are similar in the charcters, they're all very into the concept of "Nakama" and also the main characters have they're own charm (if you can call it that) that can turn villains into allies, and they never give up.....

Thats why I think, if you like one, go for the other you'll love it!

nasreen10

Both have similar artwork and emphasis working together as a group and camadrie. One Piece deals with a group of pirates while Fairy Tail deals with a guild. Both have magical elements with One Piece having the devil fruit while Fairy Tail has magic. Although both are action series, they is plently of laugh out loud humour.

Both groups of characters do have moments where they don't get along with each other but, ultimately, do care about each other.

Luffy and Natsu are similar characters. Both can be dimwitted but care deeply about their friends. They are headstrong and act first instead of thinking.

Also, both have hit or miss soundtracks.

sm3xyang3l

Both main characters are fun and very interesting. Luffy and Nastu both fight to protect their comrades and friends. As the story progresses, both get stronger, mentally and physically, although you can't really tell because of they fun and outgoing attitude. Also, both characters are looking for the person/dragon whom is like a father to them.

unitzero

Both stories are set in a fantasy world filled with colorful characters with a heavy focus on fighting, adventuring, and comedy. Both series feature great fist pumping music and share similairites in their physical character designs. As with most long running battle shounen series the main theme that runs throughout these stoires is finding strength through the bonds of friendship. If you like one of these you will certainly find things to like about the other.

CeruleanCielo

Fairy Tail uses a lot of elements that are characteristic from One Piece. Not that I mind OP is a great anime to get inspiration from. Both have epic stories, a vast and complex "universe" where the story is set, they both use comedy heavily to tell the story, and Natsu (Fairy tail) does share some character traits with Luffy.

ycyt

They both are Strong Main Character and in the most difficult situations they show great strength to overcome them .

lex272443

both series give a great story to watch with various actions taken my the main character. also do the main characters have this awesome power that keeps getting better in power and awesomeness.

on the artwork they both have a rather cartoony look but for the fights thell be sure to give you some of the best scenes you've seen in quite a time.

AfroIYH

If you like action and fun filled characters you'll love both series, the action and adventure is very similar.

Whesthaa

Like adventure anime with a main character that loves to eat and gets "more powerful" by doing so, then youll love these 2 series, but other then this simple fact, the drawing of Fairy Tail is better, but you can definatly feel a connection of similarity between the 2 series. both of them have a somewhat "in dept" segments of all the important characters of the series, wich makes you feel more of the diffrent happenings throuout the series. Aswell as both beeing completly hilarious, it also makes you feel happy, angry and sad for the characters.

RainbowDeathSkittles

Both have similar powers, art, and main characters causing a similar feel. Also they are both freakin beast.

speters97

They both are funny, full of action, and have amazing characters! One Piece is definatley much goofier than Fairy Tale but they are still both quite good.

GigasImpacta

They both are about supposedly unlikely heros who always rise to the occasion. The constant addition of enemies turned ally is also a siilarity between the two anime, I fully endorse watching One Piece if you like Fairy Tail and visa versa.

FaintIce

Both Fairy Tail and One Piece focus on the group, not the individual. While each show has it's main character, neither anime would function properly without any of its other characters. And while they go about it in different ways, the two anime get the bonds between all the characters established swiftly and powerfuly.

With their strong emphasis on friends and teamwork,  there is plenty of action, humor, and drama involved to keep you on your feet and interested in continuing the story.

MujiAce

Both are Shounen battle shows focused on a group of friends, working together as a team. They are funny too.

MaatiSan

Same artist and author, same genre.  Same crazy fighting and humans taking way too many hits to go down.  Entertaining but light on brainpower.

DarkShadowBe

It's like they were made for saying watch the other me xD ...The humor is the same OVER-THE-TOP FUNNY STUFF .The anime gives you the same feeling like Luffy always says about NAKAMA .If they ever had a Cross-over that would be some damn awesome shit XD .

rsomeone

Both have male protagonists with similar upbeat personalities. While OP relies on magical elements brought on by the devil's fruits, FT actually uses magic. FT moves at quite a faster clip than OP does (little to no filler!), but both have a great adventure storyline.

achraf01

if you like fairy tail... you well like one piece, because  both series share a similar feel for the main characters, storyline, and artwork....but one piece is much better

Jare

Fairy Tail and One Piece are similar in so many ways. So. Many.

First off, the obvious: They're both shounen comedies with a lot of action. Both shows focus a lot on the concept of 'nakamas', the power of friendship.

The main characters are very similar, too. Luffy & Natsu are both leaders that can be a bit dimwitted sometimes, yet becomes a fighting genius when the time calls for it.

"One Piece focuses on pirates, while Fairy Tail focuses on magicians." <- That's the only difference I can think of for these shows. There are so many things similar about them. The artwork. The style of comedy. The uncountable cast.

If you liked one, I'm sure you'll like the other. There's no other show that could the other one more perfectly.

DoomsdayAnime

 i find that these two animes are both alike because the characters are alike and the main story line is about the characters going on adventures.

Vikingr

You get the same general feel from both animes. Friends, comedy, drama, action and adventure, which is similar in several shounen-series that has a lot of episodes. Overall quality is about a tie between these two large titles.

KiraShinSekaiNoKami

The main character is almost the same.Natsu as well as Luffy tries to save his nakama and wants constantly to fight

ericsamuel19

they both have similar characters that care about their friends and they both are full of comedy and action plus their both shounen.

Jonesboy

i'm kinda new too this website different from the one I used took use so could someone plz explain too me how to watch the anime can't figure it out at all

franko446

Both share similar genres and if you loved the comedy emblished fighting then you'll love fariy tail and one piece.

Ashlex

Both involve awesome characters and have tons of fighting. Both main characters are funny and true to their friends 

meromex666

Its exactly the same type of shonen goofy action on both series, i inistally thought they where by the same person, the only real diference i saw was one was pirates and one was mages, doesnt matter wich one u like ur feel right at home no matter wich one u see first

Stickypurplecat

While many Shonen series have common central themes, Fairy Tail and One Piece have some very obvious visual similarities that may stem from the manga authors' association with one another. The pace of the story progression is about the same for both series, as are the over-the-top expressions and the cast of characters.A male protagonist with super-physical powers brought about by happenstance. A female sidekick who serves as eye candy, tells the audience when we should be worried for the good guys, and has more strength and ability than they let on. The scowly, but gifted rival, who reluctantly agrees to team up with the main protagonist. The animal sidekick who provides comedic relief. And of course everyone has a storied past full of drama and tragedy that is slowly revealed over these series, which are either agonizingly long-running or a response to a gigantic fandom, depending on your appreciation of these series.You'll find any or all of these in other shonen series, but if you're looking for epitome of the genre, or just need to get your fix after finishing an entire series, either one of these will do nicely.

zolfeK

Both shows deal with powers, fighting, and the power of unity in a group. They both are set in beatiful interesting worlds. They are both funny and serious.

closetanimefan

Both One Piece and Fairy Tail are long, have a ton of geart fights,  nice groups of interesting supporting characters and strong main characters who are overly blunt, highly energetic, and can be suprisingly sweet. If you liked one you will most likely like the other. 

rainyparade

The themes are different, but the characters, especially Luffy and Natzu, are extremely similar. That combined with the adventurous plots and character development back stories make these a great recommendation for each other.

Naruto

Naruto

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.

Szwagier

Both shows are focused on group of friends, taking dangerous missions for the sake of the organisation they work for. Thx to their special powers they can fight with criminals or rival organisations in order to complete the assignment.

Both stoies are battle oriented, and the plot is there as a way, to get into new battles.

The main difference is that in Naruto we have ninja and ninja villages, and in Fairy Tail there are mages and mage guilds. If you like one of the shows you should like the other as well.

MissMiko

Naruto and Fairy Tail have very simalar plot styles. (instead of ninjas its mages) Fairy tail's animation style is a bit more comedic. With styleized expressions that look more like the manga. If you like one you'll like the other!

animangaluver

Naruto is very similar to Fairy Tail with action and adventure but Fairy tail has a lot less fillers than naruto

chisato

Because both anime have a caracter who whant to protect his friend [Naruto in Naruto and Natsu in Fairy Tail] and bot main caracter have many people who are supporting them when they are in problem [In Naruto it's all the people from Konoha and of some other village who are helping Naruto and in Fairy Tail it's all the person from the guild Fairy Tail who are helping Lucy and Natsu].

Both anime also have action and many fight with power [In Fairy Tail it's the magic and in Naruto it's the Chakra].

greg975

Both are Shounen, they pretty much do the genre by the book, yet in a great way. If you want something revolutionary look somewhere else, but if you want a good anime (and you like shounen) don't miss it. I can't help it, Natsuu makes me think of Naruto and Gray of Sasuke... Oh and Sakura is similar to Lucy... Well except that Sakura was (in the begining) only thinking about love unlike Lucy.

cakeorrdeath

These shounen animes have the same basic premis. A group of young specially skilled heroes in search of adventure and to defeat the evil that threatens the greater good around them. Great battles and comedy hijinks accompany them on there journeys. Whilst the theme changes slightly with each anime the engaging story, great characters, exciting fights and comedy are ever present.

varisk

Both these anime are very similar in feel. They both start out, fairly episodic with 3-4 Man teams accomplishing various missions. The missions also tend to be more then they seem. For example, a simple fetch quest turns into discovering a much larger plot. The main characters are also similar, the two male leads are great friends yet they are always competing and getting in fights. The main male lead, Natsu is similar to Naruto in managing to accomplish something people thought was not possible, minus the whole stigma of being the carrier of a demon.  He tends to pull his power out of nowhere when he defeats yet another insurmountable task. You will find that many of the other characters draw similar parallels in either series. They are good compliments and if you enjoy one, you should the other. The art could also be called similar if you are into the clean smooth look of the series.

Drasticc

Let's face it, both have that never say die feeling to it.  Both protagonist are that pumped up Shounen anime that gives fans something to look foward to weekly through various over-matched villians.

DeDaan

Both anime's are about the main character who wants to complete his goal and has its own kind of way of making it. During that journey he makes new friends who will help to reach this goal. Also both anime's include good fighting scene's.

lisagesha

Both animes focus on a small group of friends in a huger group doing tasks(but i personally like Fairy Tail better)

Shiraiyuki

Both Naruto and Fairy tail focuse strongly in the concept of Nakama.To the character in Fairy tail and Naruto,  their nakama are the most important thing to them and they will do anything and everything to protect them.In both there's a strong main character who can raise everyone's spirits everytime their depressed; help them no matter what the situation is and he is a very reliable person despite being a bit reckless.

Stickypurplecat

While many Shonen series have common central themes, Fairy Tail and Naruto have some visual similarities. The pace of the story progression is about the same for both series, as are the over-the-top expressions and the cast of characters.

A male protagonist with super-physical powers brought about by happenstance.

Shaward

Classic Shounen series with some comedy inside.

Nothing big about both plots, FT has some more "comedy" and some less "power ups"

rainyparade

Both animes focus on magical worlds where the main characters fight together to protect their homes and their magical communities. Naruto lives in a community of ninjas while Natzu and Lucy are wizards of the organization Fairy Tail, however both animes feature similar plots and character development along with good action scenes and comedic relief.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

The foundation of alchemy is based on the law of equivalent exchange; you cannot produce something from nothing. As such, alchemy is bound by one taboo - human transmutation. Four years ago two young brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, broke this taboo when they tried to resurrect their dead mother. During the process Al's body disintegrated and Ed lost his leg. In a desperate attempt to prevent his brother from disappearing completely, Ed sacrificed one of his arms so he could affix Al's soul to a suit of armor. When his missing limbs are replaced by auto mail parts, Ed bears the name of the Fullmetal Alchemist - the youngest ever State Alchemist and dog of the military. Now, alongside his brother, Ed uses his status within the military to attempt to find any way that he can return their bodies back to their original state.

Huge strech I know but both series take place in worlds ruled by magic and the peapole who contoroll that magics lifes. Bouth also have simmiler fight scens and very simmiler animation and art styles.

Isumi

Both series are similar in many ways:

-They are in nice fantsy world,

-Both are about some kind of special people with uncommon abilities fighting for sake of their faction (Alchemists for military, mages for guilds).

-In both friends and trust are important

-Fights are similar sometimes

-In both abilities are based on magic circles (less in Fairy Tail but still)

And more!

LancerFIN

These two have a lot similarities. Magic <> Alchemy. Both Ed and Lucy faces the fact Magic/Alchemy can also be used to do bad things. If you liked Brotherhood or Fairy Tail you'll most certainly like the other one aswell.

Beezlebub

Both have fantasy worlds. Nice art styles. Interesting stories. I suggest watching this while waiting for a new episode of Fairy Tail.

LilMayar

Both series involve the usage of magic (either in the form of Alchemy or otherwise). Brotherhood is the more serious and methodical of the two; whereas, fairy tail is more whimsical and comical.

asktheshadow

Both Fullmetal and Fairy Tail are similar in the sense that they both take place in a world where people have magical abilities.  Fairy Tail is more of a fun entertaining anime and Fullmetal is more dark and intense, but they have similar elements.

DeltaNova

The story for both are highly intriguing making you want to watch more and more while also delivering great comedy and un-canny plot twists

Verified

The anime's themselves are not similar, but the world and setting they take place in is very much so. In the world of Fairy Tail, magic is used as a commodity and only exists within 10% of the population. In the other world, alchemy can be performed by anyone, but only a fraction of the population has the drive and intelligence to understand it. Each also sport an alternate reality that is the opposite of their respective worlds.

KawaKiira

Both of them from the first episode made me fall in love with them. The plot is just epic. The sound is great,once I heared it, it got stuck in my head. The animation is similar. 

seais

Loved them both. They are a bit different in syles but they were a must watch amine that once you are hooked you simply can not stop watching.

zetsubo666

There is nothing similar about the series at all Fairy tail is awful fanservice garbage that cannot make a good plot or have decent villains. Every damn arc the same thing happens its really repititive and its actually an insult that anyone would compare this garbage to outstanding series like FMA brotherhood.

People shouldn't outright lie in their recommendations just because they like this series a lot. FMA has a serious plot that makes sense and Alchemy is a mixture of science and magic while Fairy tail has a lot of mini arcs where good guys win thanks to plot hole.

There are a lot of differences between the two, there are also a few similarities. They both fight for what they love and believe in, although Fullmetal Alchemist is a little more serious, where Fairy Tail is more fun and easy-going.

Soul Eater

Soul Eater

In a bizarre fantasy world, students known as meisters are trained at the illustrious Shinigami Weapon Meister University; but the tools they wield are no ordinary weapons! Each meister is paired with a human-like being who can transform into a weapon at will; and after defeating a pre-kishin - a human whose soul has darkened - the weapon eats the soul within it. A meister's ultimate goal is to collect ninety-nine pre-kishin souls and one of a witch so that his or her partner will become an all-powerful Death Scythe. Maka and her partner Soul Eater; Assassin Black Star and his partner Demon Blade Tsubaki; and Shinigami's son Death the Kid and his partners the Demon Twin Pistol Thompson Sisters each vie for their ultimate goal, but plenty of challenges and adventures lie in their way!

Soul Eater and Fairy Tale are both fast paced adventure anime in which magic drives the plot. They have plenty of comedy that hinges on its large and quirky cast; even in terms of art style they favor simple and very colorful designs. Fans of one are very likely to enjoy the other.

thegreatmajeni

These 2 Anime are alike Because they both take place in a School (Soul Eater being DWMA and in Fairy Tail being Fairy Tail). They also have the same fighting scenes. If you like 1, you would like the other.

SirCuddles

They both have similar character design. Even some of the characters look EXACTLY the same O.o

Verified

Both with excellent dialogue and comedy normally unseen in a shounen, these two anime take you for a wild ride entertaining and satisfying more than just one aspect in your mind. Plot wise they are actually incredibly similar with one constantly fighting the powers that would reserect the Dark Lord Zeref, while the other battles forces seeking to revive the Kishin (Demon God). Each also has a main antagonist that reappears thoughout most of the series that is not the Kishin or Zeref. Each with pretty good power scales as well, you'll definitely find yourself entertained with other if you watched one.

eaper

These series each shift back and forther between action and comedy while revoling around a lot of over characters. Also, several of the characters in each series have very similar traits. If you like one series it would be worth while to check out the other.

KittyEmperor

Action and comedy are both central themes to either series and both do them quite well.  With some rather interesting and similar characters as well as some fast-paced action that makes both series a rather enjoyable experience.

shizumaru

Soul Eater and Fairy Tail are similar, due to the "quest" thing they have. both of them have guilds, and they fight against evil powers. Also there is a huge amount of ecchi scenes in both, as well as touching ones, and comic ones.

both are great animes, and you should like both.

kitkatcrunchy13

They are both pretty simaler, not in story line but in the way the charecters act and you know. They both are very funny and have a good story line. So if you watched one of these I recommend the other, they are both soo good!

DeltaNova

The sheer comedy of the two is amazing. The action scenes will have you glued to the screen and the characters draw you in; rooting for them

SarahL

Both anime's include a lot of nice different characters, fights,humor, magic and togetherness. Gotta love it.

luigifan73

Both Black Star and Natsu are a lot alike. Both fight to improve themselves and face a lot of character development for it. Both series have a lot of fight scenes, lots of good humor, and overall are both are two amazing animes.

The characters seem pretty close to each other, and there is an actual creature in Fairy Tail that was in Rave Master.

LightYagami94

They were both originally written and drawn by the same author, Hiro Mashima, and so they both have similar types of humor, plot and art styles. Both focus around a likable group of friends in a mystical world.

Darky94

These series were made by same author and they many things in similar: They have Plue (that white creature...), Etherion, same looking characters and a woman AND man lead at the same time. The atmosphere in both animes is pretty similar.

KittyEmperor

If you like one of these then you would probably like the other.  Both series have fairly similar animation styles and you can even notice similarities between the cast of the characters with even one of the characters making an appearance in both series.  There is also similar plot concepts in both series with the main cast having to deal with several different types of bad guys but ulimately they begin moving towards an ulimate showdown with the biggest baddie sometime in the future.  There are also similar genres in both animes with fantasy, magic, adventure, comdey, and some romance playing major roles in both series.  In conculsion if you liked one of these series then you are bound to end up liking the other.

Korwin

One should watch Rave Master to see where the idea of Fairy Tail came from. Many common things, terminology and even some characters are shared between the two already cult status shounen titles. If you watched Rave Master see what became of it's legacy.

Fairy3D

Fairy Tail and Rave Master have the same creator Hiro Mashima. The story line of the animes are pretty similer. watch this and judge by yourself ...

tevinskii

The similarities in characters and humour are a great combination which makes the fact that if you enjoy one of them then you will definitly like the other. Even with the odd similar characters and humour the story line along with everything else that makes these anime unique are great reasons to ensure that you DEFO watch both animes. You'll never regret it.

Ashlex

Its made by the same creator of fairy tail and Rave master was actually made before fairy tail. They have common elements and even help explain some things in fairy tail like Plue, the jigle but gang and more that i dont want to give away. YOU MUST WATCH OR READ BOTH trust me you won't regret it!

Essenceesse

Both are so similar in the characters and personalities of the characters. It is very evident they were made by the same creator, however Rave Master is slightly less involved with romance between characters and also much shorter.

jessie0713

This anime was also made by Hiro Mashima, the person who made Fairy Tail! It is indeed very similar to Fairy Tail, but the anime was made before Fairy Tail. Have fun watching Haru, Elie, and Plue! 

(Yes, Plue, one of Lucy's celestial spirits!)
