Drawn to the mystique of the unknown, Hunters travel the world in search of terrifying creatures, incredible riches, and unexplored lands. Gon Freecss is a naive-yet-determined young boy who aspires to join the ranks of these individuals, in order to find his missing father Ging - a master of the profession himself. To reach his goal, he partakes in the formidable Hunter Exam, a series of tests that push the participants to their physical and mental limits, with a Hunter License as the prize. During the exam Gon befriends vengeful Kurapika, doctor-to-be Leorio, and skilled assassin Killua, who have entered for their own reasons. But with the sinister Hisoka standing in their way, will Gon and his friends be able to succeed in obtaining their reward, or even escaping with their lives?
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?
Yu Yu Hakusho. Hunter x Hunter. Both these shows were made by the same creator, Yoshihiro Togashi. Both shows are also great action/adventure shows and both have qualities that make them unique. While Yusuke, the protagonist in Yu Yu Hakusho is a badass delinquent Gon, the protagonist of Hunter x Hunter is a hardworking good-natured boy. Both protagonist show strong love and conpassion for the people they care about most. Both series also have 4 male leads. While Yu Yu Hakusho is about being a Spirit Detective and Hunter x Hunter is about being a Hunter both series highly focus on tournament like events and both series have the same "feel" to them if you have seen both. Overall, these two shows are a perfect compliment to each other and Yoshihiro Togashi really outdid himself in both of these works.
They both have the same feel. A main character who's fun-loving and carefree, but not afraid to take things up a notch and take risks when it's required. The supporting cast isn't just there to provide bulk, and are likable characters that add color to the cast.
Both shows were created by the same mangaka and both surpass expectations, making them enjoyable watches. If you liked one, you're almost positive to like the other.
Another series by Togashi. Solid characters and lots of action. Pacing is solid like with Yu Yu Hakusho and moves faster than the original Hunter x Hunter series did.
yuyu hakusho is in many ways similer to hunter x hunter heck just look at kurapika and kurama. both yuyu hakusho and hunter x hunter have similer stories and characters and i think anyone who liked yuyu hakusho should see hxh the 2011 version since the 1999 version sucked
Both animes were created by the same author and therefore holds a lot of similarities, like some of the characters are very alike.
While HxH has a better plot, they both contain great fights, loveable characters and a lot of comedy.
If you liked one, you'll like the other!
Both have a decent amount of episodes and are well structured into different but related seasons. They both center around a group of boys going on adventures and kicking the bad guys' butts. They contain comedy, but aren't centered around it and have some pretty intense fight scenes and challenges that sometimes last a while.
The only thing is that Yu Yu Hakusho is a bit more on the mature side as it has a lot more blood, gore, and death while just about no one dies in Hunter x Hunter.
For one thing, same original author, that guy is pure genius. i Wouldnt say they give the same feel, but i would say that The type of entertainment and awesomeness is th same from both animes. You see an awesome scene in one of them, there is going to be an equally as awesome scene in the other
A mysterious monkey-tailed boy named Goku teams up with a teenage computer-wiz girl named Bulma to search for the mystic Dragon Balls. According to legend, whoever collects all 7 Dragon Balls will have any one wish granted. Join Goku in this hilarious anime masterpiece, as he races and battles to save the world from the forces of darkness. Who will find the balls first?
Dargon Ball and Hunter x Hunter share similar themes to a previous recommendation I made to "Pokemon". Goku (Dragon Ball) and Gon (Hunter x Hunter) are both young men that set out on an adventure in search for action and the solution to a noble cause. In both anime, they meet friends and enemies along the way. Tons of characters and creatures to learn about and connect to as you watch either shounen anime.
Altough the plot is farely different, the universe of DBZ and HxH are quite similar, Gon and Goku, the main characters also look alike in personality.
Both are about naive, easy-going young boys who set out in the world to find something (DB = The Dragon Balls, HxH = Gon's father). Both have action, comedy and a great cast.
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 like fairy tail you will like hunter x hunter 2011. The main chars in the anime are in guilds in hunter x hunter 2011 everybody is in 1 guild but you can choose to be a different kind of hunter. The main chars become really good friends and are willing to fight for each other. What the anime have in common is that the chars in the benning don't like eacht other become best friends. In hunter x hunter 2011 more people die than in fairy tail. hunter x hunter 2011 is darker you see more people die.
If you've watched either you should watch the other as they're both very decent shonen animes!
If you liked Magi or Hunter x Hunter, you'd like the other. Both series have a group of characters who go on an adventure filled with strange sights. One major similarity between the series are the naive main characters (Aladdin and Gon, respectively), whom see the world from a diffferent perspective. Both series have a charm to them that will make you smile throughout, yet will also have darker moments that are unexpected.
Both Gon and Alladin share very similar traits, and they impact the people around them with their naivety and strong will.
Middle school student Ganta Igarashi witnessed the slaughter of his entire class by the mysterious 'Red Man', and as the only survivor, he was labeled a mass murderer and sentenced to death. Now an inmate at the privately-owned prison and ‘amusement park' known as Deadman Wonderland, Ganta must try to survive in a place where inmates are the main attraction in brutal gladiator-style games. At the same time, he must attempt to uncover the truth behind the ‘Red Man', his mysterious childhood friend Shiro, and why he was the only survivor that bloody day.
Great series on both parts. Great fight scenes, blood, and the animation is pretty clean. Though HxH is on the lighter side with comedic timing, and Deadman Wonderland being much more serious in nature, they both are well worth the time watching.
