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?

This recommendation is based on a gut feeling. Both Naruto and HxH are hilarious, but also have some serious episodes. Above all, both share incredibly exciting fights. Besides that, both main characters are performed by the same voice actor.

Little boys and big shoes; Negima and Hunter X Hunter focus on boys starting out on their lifelong adventures. Dealing with ever increasing dangers through grit, determination, and the ever-present helping hand, and gaining an ever-increasing following behind them by personality alone, they never go without a friend. Good fun, and endearing; these are both anime you'll want to enjoy.

XMrNiceguyX
Whil Hunter X Hunter is the more lighthearted one of the two, there is a simliar fantasy-world feel in it. In both Hunter X Hunter and Puppet Princess, rather odd martial arts techniques and special powers are used. The story and characters however are not really comparable, mainly due to the lenght of Puppet Princess, but there is some sort of relation between the main character in Hunter X Hunter and the main character in Puppet Princess. You will not see any gore in Hunter X Hunter, while Puppet Princess if obviously meant for more mature public.

Saiyuki

Saiyuki

In the mystical world of Shangri-la, demons and humans live side by side, watched over by a parthenon of ancient Chinese gods. But when normally-civilized demons start to go berserk, the gods require the services of Genjou Sanzo - a Buddhist priest with a magical gun, an evil-banishing scripture and a take-no-prisoners attitude. Aided by the ancient monkey god Son Goku, the half-demon Sha Gojyo and the demon exterminator Cho Hakkai, he sets off on a treacherous journey westward, with armies of demons, dark mages and angry gods all standing in his way...

If you liked Saiyuki or if you liked HunterxHunter, you would like the other. At first this would not be an obvious choice for one another. They both follow a group of guys on there jorney. Both of them have 50+ episodes. There are also many fight scenes with even some humor packed into both. So if you liked one, you should try the other, it is worth the time watching!

While they seem different on the surface, these two anime have some similar themes...especially at the beginning of Hunter x Hunter, the main characters must undergo several exams, forming bonds in the process; the same thing happens with in Space Brothers, though the exam of course is much more realistic.  I highly suggest you check the other out if you liked one.
