Naruto Uzumaki is a young ninja who bears a great power hidden inside him, a power that has isolated him from the rest of his village. As such, his only dream is to become the Hokage - the most powerful ninja, and leader of the village; but first he needs to graduate! With his inability to perform even the most basic ninja techniques, it seems that all Naruto has going for him is his determination to succeed no matter what. Teamed up with the genius Sasuke, book-smart Sakura, and their team leader Kakashi, Naruto embarks on his quest to become the Hokage. But with outside forces posing a threat to the entire Hidden Leaf village, Naruto discovers that he must become much stronger if he ever wants to realize his dream and protect the friendships he's forged.
There are two worlds which exist side by side – the ordinary surface world of the humans and the secret world of ninjas called Nabari. Within this secret world, the opposing ninja groups are fighting over who should possess the ultimate power known as Shinra Banshou. Enter Miharu Rokujou, a high-school student who lives a carefree life and likes to keep himself to himself. Unfortunately for Miharu, his carefree life is about to be over, because within him is hidden the ultimate power and there is no end of evil minions ready to kidnap him for it! Miharu’s only chance of survival is to embrace this mystic world and become the King of Nabari himself. With the help of his new ninja friends, Kouichi, Shimizu, and Kumohira, can he come to grips with his powers or will he fall prey to his many enemies instead?
Both Naruto and Nabari no Ou have ninjas as a main theme. They both have a similar feel to them. They both have very interesting magical techniques that make them very interesting.
Both series are about ninjas, fights, friendship and a boy with a special power. Both series have mysterious hidden villages of ninjas and special tehnique. So if you like the anime about ninjas, you will like Nabari no Ou too.
The main character in both series both have incredible powers deep inside themselves. Naruto has the power of the Nine Tailed Fox, while Miharu has the power of the Shinrabanshō. The two boys always travel in a clan of ninjas and are constantly in danger due to the incredible power that lies within them. Others are always after them to kill them in order to obtain their hidden power.
Each of the series main theme is about ninjas. NnO is more bassed on our area conjoined to another world that is unknown, as for Naruto's based on fiction. Both Miharu and Naruto have something sealed deep inside of them that they had no knowledge of up entil a certain point in time, the power is hard to control; due to the character behind it, and powerful enough to put the world in danger.
Because of this power both character's have to defend themselves against enemies that wish to kill and escract the power from them. Training with other shinobi's and working for their clans.
If you liked the comedy, action/adventure of one then you may also like the other.
just two very similar action series about ninjas. comedies, sometimes sad. a bit similar characters. both main heroes have hidden powers inside of them, very dangerous powers.
if you liked Naruto and want to watch anything similar but not that long, you definitely should give a try to Nabari no Ou. and if you enjoyed Nabari no Ou you may enjoy Naruto as well.
I agree with the other users interms of the shinobi kids theme (like Naruto), also the 'magical' properties they seem to hold. Though this anime has more of a darker undertone also, similar to D.Gray-Man, including Miharu Rokujou the main character with Alan Walker in a comedic sense & art style. Either way this is a great anime, i've been looking for something new for some time now and this has been very enjoyable for me n_n Check out Nabari No Ou if you've been looking for something similar.
Both's main story is about Ninja, and both Main characters have special powers inside them. Both have pretty decent characters as well.
Both anime have same ninja filling (kunai ninja stars jutsu fighting) and both main characters have an inner monster/hidden power
Oboro, a naive, love-struck girl, is pledged to Gennosuke, an idealist. Both are successors to opposing ninja clans with a long history of hatred kept barely in check by a covenant of peace. Just as the two vow to reconcile the clans with their marriage, the shogun orders the feud to resume in order to resolve an internal struggle that threatens to tear the Tokugawa shogunate apart. Even worse, Oboro and Gennosuke themselves are forced to lead their clans in battle. Can the star-crossed lovers resist the brutal circumstances and remain true to their love as the death toll rises?
Both Naruto and Basilisk are about ninjas who give their all for the sake of their clan (in Basilisk) or village (in Naruto). Basilisk has a very interesting story and a lot of stunning battle scenes. Naruto has the same, only Basilisk is made graphically more detailed; and also, in Basilisk, the ninjas are not kids, but adults; which means, there is not as much humor as in Naruto, but still, humor is present.
First, the obvious: both shows are about ninjas protecting their homes (villages in Naruto, clans in Basilisk); in both shows the ninjas have largely exagerated or impossible techniques that make them vastly stronger than the ordinary person.
Although Naruto is much longer, it is like the dumber, younger brother of Basilisk. They are immensely similar in theme, but Basilisk is more mature: there is less commedy, more violence, stronger emotions, and better animation in Basilisk, which on the other hand means Naruto is a lighter, longer, "happier" experience, although arguably less serious.
If Naruto is a kid ninja series, and Naruto Shippuden a teen, then Basilisk is definately the mature adult. Taking the same premise - ninjas from different clans fighting with abilities beyond the scope of normal people for dominance - and cranking up the mature themes, Basilisk is definately not a series for kids. However, if you are looking for something more adult, with a dark and gritty feel, you should try watching Basilisk.
Basilisk and Naruto have loads of ninja action, introducing a good variety of characters with a good range of different ninja techniques, the core of both shows are the fighting scenes, and they don't dissapoint in my opinion.
Basilisk is shorter and will appeal more to an adult audience than Naruto.
If you thought Naruto was exciting, you'd much rather be watching Basilisk. Ninja factions at war, super-human ninja technique, and interesting character design. Basilisk is Naruto for adults.
Yusuke Urameshi was a normal middle school punk until he was hit and killed by a car, while saving a child. His selfless action earned him the right to gain his life back and serve as a detective of the spirit world, keeping the world of the living safe from a myriad of demons. But being reborn has its price: Yusuke must hatch a spirit beast that will develop according to his actions, and if he doesn't act in a good and honest manner, it will eat his soul. Can Yusuke protect the human and spirit worlds and still manage to save himself in the process?
Yusuke Urameshi is a just your ordinary teenage delinquent (if there is such a thing) living a selfish lifestyle; because of this much of society treated him as an outcast throughout his life. A lot like Yusuke, Uzamaki Naruto was treated as an outcast by his village not only because he behaved selfishly, but because of a dormant monster sealed within him. Both protagonists are so much alike that it makes me laugh when I think about it. They each have serious ego problems and think that they're the best in everything; their style of fighting is always reckless (they aren't the stealthy types); and last but not least, neither of them are any good at creating strategies - they'd much rather use brute strength. So if you like action anime with a laugh every now and then both of these series are recommended.
YYH and Naruto both have great action and stories, and kickass characters. If you liked one, try out the other.
Naruto and Yu Yu Hakusho have very similar fights and they are both very action-y. They are a very good match together. If you watched one, you should watch the other.
Both have the same concept of training to increase strength and protect friends. Both have a small group of friends that train to defeat stronger and strongeroppenents.
Both animes start of with a fast paced introduction of the main anti-hero but within a few episodes fall back upon the usual shounen standards. Although with a lot of action, the story barely progresses after a while.
In the revolutionary Meiji period, Japan is undergoing enormous political change. It is a time when vagabonds and terrorists will use any method to prevent the modernization of their country, even if it means trampling on the innocent in the process. In such a time, Himura Kenshin, a wandering samurai, has dedicated his life to protecting the weak and desperate peasants from those who would oppress them. However, Kenshin has a dark past which threatens to destroy the values he is fighting for. When he meets his new friends Kaoru, Sanosuke, and Yahiko, and tries to build a peaceful life with them, events conspire against him. Can Kenshin overcome the demons within and without, and finally ensure the peaceful future that Japan deserves?
These two shows have plenty in common. They both have great action. They both take from Japanese history (Ruroken much more tho, since in Naruto it's basically just ninjas taken from history). Neither take themselves too seriously. Both have great characters with lots of development. Both are 90+ episodes. And finally,both are just great series.
Naruto and Kenshin have extremely nice fights, though in Kenshin it's the sword, not chakra that does the damage. Both are series with action and comedy, so if you're looking for a long running show, this is the one you want.
Naruto and Kenshin involve ninja and samurai and take place in the past. They are filled with comedy that is based upon not only the main characters, but also those they come across. The main characters want things they just can't reach due to events in their pasts, but they never let their dreams be crushed and strive to make a difference.
The time has come for the next Shaman King to be crowned in the great Shaman Fight. Yoh Asakura is one such hopeful, a kind-hearted boy with a hidden power... and a terrible secret. Now, the fate of all mankinds rests in the hands of Yoh and his companions as they must battle the most powerful shaman who ever lived!
Both characters have a goal and they will do anything to achieve it. Yoh and Naruto have this passion to protect their friends, which leads them to tapping into a strong power they both have inside.
Both anime are focused around a teenage boy who despite being faced with important and often dangerous tasks in pursuit of their goals, maintain a relaxed, easy-going attitude.
Both series look strongly at not only the strengths and weaknesses of the main character but also that of the group of companions they keep and their bonds with them.
Both are lighthearted enough to watch when you dont want to watch something intense, but can both provide intensity and edge-of-your-seat situations.
Two very typical shounen shows, neither of which were very appealing to myself, will definitely be loved by younger action fans. Simple jokes, impossibly crazy characters and a journey of self discovery see the main protagonists fight their way to the top. If you enjoy the battles and friendships in one show, you're bound to love the other.
