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.

Both Naruto and Nabari no Ou have ninjas as a main theme. They both have a similar feel to them. They both have very interesting magical techniques that make them very interesting.

ryus

The both series are about young shinobis and about fighting against powerful enemy. Both main characters have something sealed inside them and they cannot control it because of its character.

funtoo2

The main character in both series both have incredible powers deep inside themselves. Naruto has the power of the Nine Tailed Fox, while Miharu has the power of the Shinrabanshō. The two boys always travel in a clan of ninjas and are constantly in danger due to the incredible power that lies within them. Others are always after them to kill them in order to obtain their hidden power. 

LovelyWickedDescet

Each of the series main theme is about ninjas. NnO is more bassed on our area conjoined to another world that is unknown, as for Naruto's based on fiction. Both Miharu and Naruto have something sealed deep inside of them that they had no knowledge of up entil a certain point in time, the power is hard to control; due to the character behind it, and powerful enough to put the world in danger.

Because of this power both character's have to defend themselves against enemies that wish to kill and escract the power from them. Training with other shinobi's and working for their clans.

If you liked the comedy, action/adventure of one then you may also like the other.

Bessie

just two very similar action series about ninjas. comedies, sometimes sad. a bit similar characters. both main heroes have hidden powers inside of them, very dangerous powers.

if you liked Naruto and want to watch anything similar but not that long, you definitely should give a try to Nabari no Ou. and if you enjoyed Nabari no Ou you may enjoy Naruto as well.

thegreatmajeni

Both's main story is about Ninja, and both Main characters have special powers inside them. Both have pretty decent characters as well.

narutofanatix

Both anime have same ninja filling (kunai ninja stars jutsu fighting) and both main characters have an inner monster/hidden power

Loveless

Loveless

Ritsuka has nowhere to run or hide. He lost his memories and his mother’s loving support, and then his brother -- his sole defender -- was brutally murdered. He is entirely alone until Soubi appears, saying the words he most wants to hear, but refuses to believe: “I love you and will do anything for you.” Flung into a world of intrigue and magic, where bonded pairs battle and only Soubi can fight for him, he struggles to find his brother’s killer. Yet he must also face the most bitter question of all: if you can't remember who you were, does that mean you don't know who you are?

At first glance, Nabari no Ou and Loveless do not seem to have much in common but the way the characters develop is similar. In both we have a young male protagonist who starts out as being utterly indifferent to life and those around him, only to learn through trials how to connect with others and gain a purpose. The supernatural element and overall mysterious allure of one is also present in other. The plot convention of secret societies is explored in both anime but perhaps what really makes these two anime akin is the interaction between the lead and a character whose motives are somewhat dubious, in Nabari's case Yoite and in Loveless' case Soubi.  

Myrah

There are many similarities between the two main characters in both of these series. A younger, indifferent character and an older, broken character partner up in both of these series in order to achieve their ends.

Also both have shounen-ai, (though it is implicated rather than official in NnO), and both are fantasies set in the modern day.

CaymChase

The main characters are quite similiar, in both of these anime you can find a younger protagonist that is pulled back from the older one, but in the same way is somehow attracted to him. The younger characters are both living on the edge of the society.

In both you can find a bit of comedy, school life"fantasy", black and white side of life and drama.

The stories are quite similiar also. The younger character is unwillingly dragged into the world he didn't know about before and has to cope with this situation somehow.

Both stories are bittersweet.

tinaditte

Nabari no ou and Loveless has not a very similar story plot to each other. The thing that makes them very similar is the main characters point of view at live and how they suddenly start to enjoy life after meeting someone "special".

Miharu and Yoite in Nabari no Ou does not have a same sort of relasionship like Ritsuka and Soubi in loveless does. In loveless the relasionship is much shounen-ai while Miharu and Yoite is connedted in another way (kinda like brother/idole sort of way)

The very similar part is the development of the two main characters together.

Amatsuki

Amatsuki

When Tokidoki Rikugou donned a pair of virtual reality glasses and entered a Bakumatsu-era exhibit at a museum, he had no idea that his life would drastically change. While walking across a bridge in the fabricated reality, Tokidoki ran across a small being and a monster called a nue - and he was promptly attacked. His eye was damaged, but more importantly, Tokidoki discovered that he was now stuck inside the "virtual reality" filled with samurai and spirits. Now, with the help of Kuchiha, a warrior woman possessed by a dog spirit; and Shinonome, a fellow student who has been stuck, just like Tokidoki, for the past two years, Tokidoki must search for the truth behind the nue and try to find a way home.

The shows are similar in that they have very slashable action with the boys without excluding strong females, and on top of that there's a Japanese history mingling with the modern day using a supernatural medium.

animegal33

Like in Nabari no Ou, the main character in Amatsuki special. They both are wanted by others because they either are something (Amatsuki) or have something (Nabari no Ou). Also, similar to Nabari no Ou, the main character in Amatsuki makes friends with the enemy. Both main characters are thrown into a world of fighting that they have never known before.

kayleret3173

The main characters are both suddenly dragged into a world that they had not known before and both happen to find out that they are the key to the whole story. They start off alone but through being dragged into a new world, they find themselves making new friends and learning about life.

07-Ghost

07-Ghost

Teito Klein is a former slave who attends the Barsburg Empire's military academy. Having no memory of his past and the power to wield a rare ability called Zaiphon, Teito is constantly under the scrutiny of his peers - except for his best friend Mikage, the only person he connects with. After seeing and remembering the man who killed his father, Teito tries to kill him and finds himself on the run from Barsburg's military might. Now, with the evil beings known as Kor after his soul, the Barsburg Empire after his blood and only the legendary Seven Ghosts to protect him, Teito must unlock the memories of his past before he ends up as a sacrifice for Verloren, the sealed God of Death.

Although the settings are very different (Nabari no Ou is about ninjas in contemporary society, 07-Ghost is Church vs Empire) these animes gave me the same feeling.

The main characters both don't remember their past and have a hidden power that other people want. The theme of friendship (nearly shounen-ai) is very strong too.

kuroji13

nabari and 07- ghost main characters both have a hidden power both of them helped by a group of friends and both have a  friend basically a dude  close to the main characters so yeah there nearly the same feel but different themes

Basilisk

Basilisk

Oboro, a naive, love-struck girl, is pledged to Gennosuke, an idealist. Both are successors to opposing ninja clans with a long history of hatred kept barely in check by a covenant of peace. Just as the two vow to reconcile the clans with their marriage, the shogun orders the feud to resume in order to resolve an internal struggle that threatens to tear the Tokugawa shogunate apart. Even worse, Oboro and Gennosuke themselves are forced to lead their clans in battle. Can the star-crossed lovers resist the brutal circumstances and remain true to their love as the death toll rises?

chamomille

Both series take place in the world of legendary spies - the world of ninja clans with their secret killing techniques. Both series follow touching story of love (Basilisk) or friendship (Nabari no Ou). If you liked one, you would surely like the other.

KiraRin

On the surface, the two shows are very similar. One secret ninja clan fighting another to prove supremacy. Both Nabari and Basilisk are very fantastical in nature, with some over the top fight scenes and special moves being used.

The relationships between friends and lovers are explored in these shows, making them both a bit different from the usual action shows, and probably appeal more to a slightly older and more mature audience.
