In an age when samurai enhanced their bodies mechanically, a great war broke out. After the war's end, these "Bandits" (having become mere robbers) have lost their samurai code and now rob villages for their rice and women. The peasants of Kanna Village are filled with despair and agree to hire some samurai to retaliate, but with only rice in their food stores and no money to offer, it seems that time is running out. Now, the villagers must set out to look for samurai willing to accept such a deal -- but are there still such men that abide by the samurai code, and protect the weak?
Both Samurai 7 and Naruto take place in the somewhat recent past, have characters who fight a lot of bad guys, and a good storyline.
Samurai 7 series for a Naruto Shippuden fan can be basically summed up as just two consecutive missions carried out by a team of grown up paid professionals, each with their own personality, life philosophy and ideals.
If you don't mind watching samurai slicing giant robots and other bad guys with their swords instead of watching ninjas throwing their shuriken, try Samurai 7, and you'll find lots of enjoyable details there.
Have you ever felt like the world would be a better place if certain people weren’t around? Such grim daydreams might occur when watching the dismal daily news, but on one fateful day, Light Yagami finds that these daydreams can become reality. By pure happenstance, he comes across a black notebook entitled "Death Note", whose text within states that whoever's name is written on its pages will die. With the aid of the death god Ryuk, Light takes it upon himself to rid the world of its corruption, ushering in a new era of purity one death at a time. But as Ryuk foretells, Light's actions will not go unchallenged...
Although Death Note is more suspensful, there is also a lot of drama in Naruto. The main difference between Death Note and Naruto is that Naruto has a somewhat more positivie message other than killing people in your Death Note.
Pain and Light Yagami are very similar due to their ideals
-Creating a world in peace and that peace have to be kept in check
-Both have obstacles in their goals
-Both have supernatural powers

If you want a cool male protagonist that does what he wants then you should watch Kaze no Stigma. In both of these shows the male protagonist never listens to others and thinks that he is always Mr. Right. Not so much for Naruto, but somewhat. This show also has that action/powers spin you want. In Naruto you have jutsu, while in Kaze no Stigma you have the powers of nature's spirits, such as fire or air. So, if you want another series to watch while watching Naruto, then watch this. I'm pretty sure you'll be hooked after the first episode. Plus there is some fanservice. Nice, right? =D

In the midst of the chaos is a young man named Kazuma, whose life will soon change forever as he discovers his hidden abilities, and how to wield them.
Scryed has a story that is very comparable to Naruto Shippuuden. Kazuma is being hunted down by an organization, yet has the hidden power to retaliate. While the main focus in both Naruto and Scryed is on the hardcore fights that show off a lot of different skills, there is also a pretty gloomy story and a few mysteries to discover!
