Naruto Shippuuden and Ikkitousen shares many things, especially the fact that both lead roles of the animes have a monster inside of them they need to find a way to live with or destroy.

Whie it is highly recommended to watch any Hunter × Hunter material you can find, this "final" OVA bears the most similarities with Naruto Shippuden series (I put "final" in quotes since manga story is far beyond that). Training your ass off to invent new techniques to beat your enemies in a spectacular fight is what the main characters do most of the time.
