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.

Groove Adventure Rave

Groove Adventure Rave

Fifty years ago, the Demon Stone and RAVE (two powerful artifacts) are broken and scattered throughout the world. The story follows the journey of Haru Glory; during his travels he meets many new friends and allies, and also enemies known as the Daemon Card. He will have to use the powers given to him by RAVE to defeat the Daemon Card and find the other pieces of RAVE.

Action, action, action -- Naruto's got ninjas, and Groove Adventure RAVE has a guy with a huge sword...and a little creature with a horn. Both series achieve a good mix of comedy and action with an overarching plot, but Groove Adventure RAVE delves deeper with its characters and goes farther in terms of storytelling.
Lots of action and comaraderie your thing? Then go watch Groove adventure rave. Sure, it doesn't feature ninjas, ninjutsu, or even ninja weapons, but it still has enough swordplay, magic, and the occasional twist to keep things interesting.

Rave and Naruto are feel-good anime series with some depth! They are suitable for all ages with strong (if overly simplified) didactic themes. They are perfect for the young anime beginner, and have enough episode longevity to keep you occupied for a while.



Sumimura Yoshimori is a Kekkaishi – an inheritor of the power to battle demons, using barriers called kekkai. His family is charged with protecting the grounds of Karasumori high school, a building which magnifies the power of demons who enter it. Helping him are his spirit-wolf companion Madarao, and next door-neighbor Yukimura Tokine, the daughter of a rival clan. Years ago, Tokine was injured protecting Yoshimori, and now he is determined to become strong enough to keep her from being hurt again. Of course, he'd rather bake his exquisite cakes than have to fight demons at all, but fate has something else in store! As a shadowy demon organization moves to steal Karasumori's power, can Yoshimori overcome legions of demons, a centuries-old family rivalry, and a grandfather who just can't understand his love for baking?

Both Kekkaishi and Naruto are about superpowers, and both have a progressive, manga-lead plot with viable enemies throughout. The main male character in each series is one that burdens himself with the troubles of others, which provides his motivation for improving his skills.


They both share the same traits of a shonen anime. The main characters both start out in similar situations of being the underrated weakling, and discovering a vast amount of power within themselves. Each series contains a great deal of battling between two parties. If you like Naruto, you will be sure to like Kekkaishi as well


Both animes are shounens about a strong boy who doesn't know about his own powers and is seeking to become stronger to protect those who are important to him. They both contain lots of action and promising techniques that'll make you say WOW!

If you enjoyed either make sure to have a look at the other as well.

Law of Ueki

Law of Ueki

There's an adage that one man's trash is another man's treasure; but for Kosuke Ueki, one man's trash is another man's... tree?! Junior high school teacher Mr. K is in the running for the title of Celestial King. Candidates must select a junior high school student to endow powers upon, and then the students might fight each other mercilessly. The victorious student's benefactor will become the new Celestial King! Kosuke was Mr. K's choice, and for his power, he chose the ability to turn trash into trees. Furthermore, if he uses his abilities to harm others, he will lose one of his natural talents. Now, Kosuke must battle a variety of other power users to help Mr. K win it all, all while keeping his talents intact!

Both anime incorporate extremely varied fighting techniques, which produce very entertaining fights. Also, both are (for the most part) a light-hearted anime.

They both have a tendency to make the "bad guys" seem like good guys who are just misunderstood or were led astray at some point, too. Oh what happened to the good old days when a villain was just evil, instead of a deeply-hurt and emotionally-scarred tree-hugger?

While Naruto has more story depth and episodes of the two, Law of Ueki will more than likely be the funner ride.


In both Naruto and Law of Ueki there is action and comedy. The characters have special powers and want to protect everyone, and both of them make friends with almost all of their enemies.


Both of these anime center around msin characters that want to protect their friends, convert their emenies into friends, and don't seem like the strongest people at first. They also both have strong mentor characters, a lot of action, and female characters that tell the main character what an idiot he is being. If you liked one, I think there is a strong chance you will like the other

Ninja Scroll

Now the fate of all of Japan lies in the hands of a vagabond samurai, a deadly female ninja and a perverted old monk as they take on an enemy who is, literally, immortal.

If you are a die hard ninja fan, you'd like Naruto and Ninja Scroll. I suggest these to any anime fan who likes ninjas!


Naruto and Ninja Scroll are both about ninjas. Ninja Scroll is a bit more serious than Naruto but if you are the kind of person who loves ninja fight scenes, like the ones in Naruto, this is a great movie for you. It has lots of violence, and lots of ninjas.


I should start off by saying.. Ninja Scroll & Naruto have very different feels to them. Ninja Scroll being a seinen movie, with adult content and a simple storyline and universe (it's a movie afterall), while Naruto is a shounen series, with a lighter feel to it, but a somehow complex storyline and universe (being around 400+ episodes this day if you add Naruto Shippuden).

Anyways, let's get to the reccomendation! xD. If you don't mind the feel to the anime (basically if you're willing to watch both seinen and shounen), and enjoy the action of either of these animes (strong ninjas, with individual overnatural powers, fighting against eachother), you should make sure to check the other one out. There's even some similarities in the individual powers of the characters. You can't help to think, that the writer of Naruto got some inspiration from Ninja Scroll.

Both PMK and Naruto deal with a young boy trying to make it as a warrior/fighter. You will love the main character and his surrounding cast that helps him in life and fights.


Both animes have a positive lead who will do anything to become stronger, but then realizes on their own what true strength is. Both lost their parents at a very young age and had to grow up faster than those around them. However, Peacemeker is much darker than naruto but has comedic moments that takes the edge off. If you liked one you will more than likely like the other.


Both center around a boy that has no parents anymore, wants to be strong, taken seriously, get respect, and has to learn how to be a man.  Both involve the boy being taught by other samurai in the clan.  Both boys have the same basic personality, loud, impulsive, and melancholy when reflecting on his own failings.  Hell the voice even sounds the same..  Peacemaker at least has a plot anchored in actual history, and has less of the chi-magic plot elements, though it also seems to have a bit of shojo-ai.
