Hardcore fights for everyone! Though with a story, enjoy! :D What I mean to say is that Bleach has everything Naruto has, and more. It's already a fact that everyone that watches one of these also watches the other, so don't be left out.

Do you like anime that contain some nice fighting scenes? Do you hate it when the fighting seems to become a purpose in itself, like in for instance DBZ? Do you like anime with well fleshed-out characters with plenty of personality? Do you like it when the physical fights are a reflection of the emotional and ideological struggles of said characters? If you found yourself answering "Yes" to most of these questions, then you're likely to enjoy both "Bleach" and "Naruto".

HIGH intense action, massive magical powers and wonderful art (most of the time...) both these series are masterful succesors to the Dragonball Z formula. Though these two series are extremely more intelligent and better written than DBZ. If you cant see a resemblance between Naruto and Ichigo... I give up.
One Piece

One Piece

Long ago the infamous Gol D. Roger was the strongest and most powerful pirate on the seas. As he was about to be executed he revealed that he hid all of his wealth, including the legendary treasure known as One Piece, on an island at the end of the Grand Line - a treacherous and truly unpredictable sea. Monkey D. Luffy is a spirited, energetic and somewhat...

If you liked the amount of action in One Piece, you'll enjoy this series. There's plenty of stealth ninja stuff (woo!) fighting and all that. Plus, it has plenty of comical scenes.

Ah yes, the bliss of enjoyable 100+ episode shounen. One piece and Luffy go hand in hand in terms of a boy realizing his dreams. While One Piece doesn't take itself too seriously most of the time Naruto is a bit more serious but doesn't pretend to be something it's not. You like Naruto? Then you like OP, it's as simple as that folks.

Both animes are mostly comedy and action. There are moments of darkness in each at points. The both feature DBZ-like hugely extended fight scenes and battles. And finally Naruto and Luffy have a lot in common.
Dragon Ball Z

Dragon Ball Z

Five years have passed since Goku and his friends defeated Piccolo Jr. and restored peace to the planet. Gohan - Goku's son - and a variety of good, bad, and morally ambiguous characters are back, and perpetually not ready for action! Aliens, androids, and magicians all hatch evil plots to destroy the world and it's up to Goku to save the Earth once more ...

Taking the title of biggest waste of time anime, if you like naruto's long flashbacks and explainations, then DBZ is for you. Although mostly a waste of time, it's a decent anime to start out with, and when they finally DO fight, it's pretty good.

For fans of Dragon Ball Z, Naruto is the next logical step. Both are based on a popular action manga, and both are series focused on hard-hitting action. However, Naruto has a far more developed sense of "cool," with its unique ninja techniques and stories with morals.
ZDragon ZDragon says
Fighting, fighting, fighting... both animes are based on that. You can find really nice action scenes in them. DBZ is much longer, so if Naruto wasn't enough for you, this is the right series for you.
