For Niwa Daisuke, turning 14 should be accompanied by romance and the promise of new adventures into adulthood, but instead comes with a surprising revelation: all male children of the Niwa's bloodline inherit the powers (alter ego) of Dark, a phantom thief, upon their 14th birthday! Now, in addition to his ever-present quest to win the heart of his childhood friend Risa, Daisuke must commit acts of thievery (with his doppelganger Dark controlling his body), to steal mysterious pieces of art for unknown purposes. For Daisuke, his growing pains are just beginning!
It's easy to say that both DN Angel and Jing are about legendary thieves, but there is a real reason for putting them together! Both have a very special atmosphere, after all. DN Angel does have more going on as well, so it's even better. ;)
What makes these two series so great are there storytelling aspect focus around stealing items from places that are believed to be impossible to inflitrate. Mixed in with some supernatural elements and a company who follows/is the characters makes both series easy to watch. Once you've seen either KoB Jing or DNAngel, go see the other, they're well worth it.
Both of these shows involve extremely talented theives who steal items that really need to be stolen for the good of mankind. They steal these mystical objects, rescue damsels in distress, and don't forget to have fun along the way. Although there is more character development in D.N.Angel than King of Bandit Jing, both shows have a very similar feel and if you liked one, I think you will definitely like the other.
In Norse mythology, the end of the world was foretold as the final war between the gods, and its name was Ragnarok. In a twist on the lore, the god Loki finds himself exiled to the world of humans. Mayura, a girl obsessed with mysteries, ends up entangled in Loki's struggle to return to the world of the gods without realizing it, and meanwhile, the gods divide into factions. Some are willing to help Loki find his way home, while others are after his life -- the end of the world, the final war: Ragnarok. And in the center of it all is Mayura...
The art style and main characters of these two animes have so much in common that if you like one, you'll like the other. They both have talking animal sidekicks as well. The flow of both shows is similar, not quite slice of life, but with enough discontinuous episodes that it feels like it at times. The fight scenes also have a lot in common.
While Jing and Loki have very different plots they are very similiar in approach and basic mood. The characters, while not deep, are enjoyable. The fights are usually quick and to the point while still fun to watch and there's a sense of humor that runs through both of them. The fact they have a similiarity of style is probably largely due to having the same director, so if you liked how one was done then you'll like how the other is done.
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.
Jing sometimes looks smarter than Naruto, but his adventures are similar to Naruto's. If you like series concerning a young hero defeating (or try to defeat) enemies with comic elements, it's your choice. Without a common plot, Jing is more like Naruto's filler episodes, but that's not a bad thing.
Armed with five female crewmembers, a full arsenal of weapons, and a holographic AI computer, the pirate ship Sol Bianca sets off across the galaxy to fight the Tres space force, save a young boy named Rim Delapaz and his civilization from destruction, and take down a universally powerful dictator Batros. All this for what? Treasure of course.
Both involve fairly episodic (Jing being 100%, SB being pretty much episodic for each pair of episodes) plots, with wonderful (but different than each other) animation style. Both contain a person or persons who are pirates/thieves, who want to find treasure. Jing takes place on a magical continent, while SB takes place in space. Both are definitely worth your time.
Both are episodic shows about bandits running around trying to get lots of treasure. Sol Bianca is way more serious than King of Bandit Jing but both have intersting characters that are always looking for the next big challenge. If you liked one check out the other.

"One stormy night", and they would finally meet face to face at their promised place and time, but on this fateful night Mei, an orphan goat, and Gabu, a wolf, finally see each other. Will their friendship work? Will their communities allow it?
King of Bandit Jing and Arashi have a lot of strange creatures which makes them another perfect watch for those that want something relaxed and childish. The entire atmosphere and flow in both Jing and Arashi no Yoru ni are very alike. Both are very befitting for younger fans, or for fans that want something different as a remnant of their old days.
