Synopsis:

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?

Black Cat

Black Cat

An organization known to the dark side of the world as Chronos claims to desire world peace, employing the top thirteen assassins in the world known as 'Erasers.' They each have a weapon customized to fit their style, all made out of orichalcum ore, the strongest material available on Earth. Number 13, Train Heartnet (codenamed Black Cat) is the most famous and revered of the thirteen Chronos numbers, but in the light of a tragic event he has come to question his path in life. Together with Sven Vollfied, a struggling bounty hunter and a living weapon named Eve, Train takes up a job as a bounty hunter - all the while running from the other Erasers and Creed Diskenth, a crazed man whom wants him to join the Apostles of the Stars, a group made to destroy Chronos.

Despite Candidate for Goddess being sci-fi and Hunter X Hunter being a more fantastical setting, I can't help but feel as if there are certain similarities. Zero reminds me of Gon, the instructer reminds me of Leorio, and Hiead reminds me of Killua.Finally, to a degree, the Candidate training reminds me of the Hunter training.

Overlooking the major plot differences, there is a lot these shows have in common. Gon and Mao both have a sort of naiive nature that draws people to them and they never back down from fighting the good fight. They build loyal friends this way and never stop trying to improve themselves. If you liked one of these shows- check the other out.

Dragon Drive

Dragon Drive

Throughout his life, Oozora Reiji has always been rather half-hearted. Never able to fully dedicate himself to anything, he lives a sloppy day-to-day existence, until his classmate Yukino introduces him to Dragon Drive -- a virtual reality game. While Reiji garners a passion for the game, it would seem that its founders have other things in mind than simple entertainment. During a special training, Reiji discovers that Dragon Drive is more than just a game, and now must fight for the survival of the dragons as well as all of mankind!

Hunter X Hunter and Dragon Drive are very similar on so many levels, but I think it's the overall atmosphere that really puts them together. They both have a fairly light-hearted feel, and they are both packed full of action and adventure. They are also both fighting animes where the characters keep developing their skills as fighters and the story progresses.
