If you liked the Naruto Shippuden anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
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.
Rin Okumura is a seemingly ordinary boy living at the Southern Cross Boys' Monastery. One day, however, Rin encounters a boy who has been possessed by a demon. Amidst the struggle, he not only awakens latent powers sealed within him, but also learns that he is the son of Satan! No longer able to stay under the protection of the church and with his very existence straddling the line between human and demon, Rin decides to fight against his parentage and joins the True Cross Order as an exorcist. Now, the teen must attend the True Cross Academy and begin special exorcist training alongside his new comrades all while keeping his identity a secret; but can the son of Satan really become a true exorcist?
Both series focus on male lead characters that have qualities about themselves that they have no control over. Naruto with the demon fox, and Rin is Satan's son. Both characters are hunted and mistreated in similar ways. Naruto and Rin also strive towards the better side of their humanity and fight to protect people they love. They also have similar goal sets that are very long term - Naruto wants to be Hokage, and Rin wants to defeat Satan. Both of these goals are nobel and very hard to obtain. If you like(d) Blue Exorcist or Naruto i would series check whatever series you haven't seen out.
As a child, Chirin the lamb is taught by his loving mother to be wary of leaving their pasture; wolves and other predators are a constant threat, though the naïve Chirin believes they would never eat his kind. But when a wolf breaches the perimeter and kills his mother while she protects him, Chirin decides he must do the unthinkable: find the wolf and demand that he trains Chirin to be strong. Chirin must undergo rigorous conditions and be the very thing that he despises so that he may have his revenge, but will he lose himself in the process?
This is probably my oddest recommendation ever - yet I think it makes lots of sense.
The main themes for Chirin no Suzu's protagonist and one of Naruto Shippuden's main characters, Uchiha Sasuke, are revenge, its emptiness, how the seek for revenge turns the avenger into a totally different being and how once all is over and done, there's no place anymore for him to return back to.
Put simply, Chirin no Suzu is a classical, animal-starred and way shorter, yet completely parallel version of Sasuke's plight.
Telling someone who enjoyed Chirin no Suzu to go watch the massive shonen that is NS would be quite overdone, but for those who have watched NS this might be one little, quirky, enjoyable film.
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, Yagami Light 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.
An akuma is a soul which has been brought back to life through sadness and despair with the powers of Millenium Earl. Their mission is to terrorize the earth and all who dwell within it. The Black Order is a group of Exorcists that have sworn to cleanse the souls of the akuma, and collect the substance known as "innocence". This powerful substance can be used as an anti-akuma weapon, and ultimately can help destroy the evil Millenium Earl. Allen Walker is a young Exorcist who has the ability to tell who is human and who is an akuma with the help of his cursed eye. Together with the Black Order, Allen must find all 109 pieces of innocence to protect the world and defeat Earl.
Naruto Shippuden and D.Gray-man have many similarities. Primarily, their main characters are very similar. Both are cursed and contain great power, and are motivated to save lives. Each of them ends up on a great quest, which potentially has world altering significance. Both series also contain similar tones and humor.
I can, without hesitation, recommed D.Gray-man to watchers of Naruto Shippuden and vice versa.
