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!

My-HiME has a lot more mystery and story than Naruto Shippuuden will ever have, and also has the villains with dark motives and sad moments that you found in Naruto.

Rurouni Kenshin is another shounen title that packs a good story. Kenshin is another warrior that has a lot of skills in battle which provide us, as fans, with the kind of fights that we loved in Naruto as well.

Fate/stay night

Fate/stay night

The Holy Grail War is a battle between seven magicians who each summon a mythical hero to fight for their cause. Shirou, a twice orphaned high school boy, had so little magical talent that his foster father did not bother teaching him about the war and its meaning. Thanks to that lack of foresight, Shirou finds himself in a bit of a pinch when he accidentally summons a hero of the strongest class, and is sucked into the fray. The Grail grants the winner any wish they have. But driven by an unyielding sense of justice and self-sacrifice, for what will Shirou fight?

Both Naruto and FSN have what's important: a good story and lots of action. The main characters, Sabre and Naruto, become involved in many conflicts which bring out emotion and have an effect on everyone around them. These are great anime for action and quest lovers.

The reason I didn't recommend the first incarnation of Naruto with Recca is is purely because Shippuuden is more serious. This relates more to the mood of Recca, as it can get pretty intense at times.
