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.
Join the king of thieves Jing and his plumed partner Kir as they seek out the greatest treasures in the world - and steal them. From desert bandit fortresses to the innermost sanctums of kings and queens, if there's a magnificent treasure to be had, you can be sure Jing has his eyes (and later his hands) on it.
Jing sometimes looks smarter than Naruto, but his adventures are similar to Naruto's. If you like series concerning a young hero defeating (or try to defeat) enemies with comic elements, it's your choice. Without a common plot, Jing is more like Naruto's filler episodes, but that's not a bad thing.
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.
Some years into the future, a strange, unexplainable natural disaster has broken off a piece of the Japanese mainland. Known as the Lost Ground, it is now inhabited by people with Alters -- machine-like extensions of their own will. In order to keep the peace on the Lost Ground, the HOLY organization uses its own Alter capabilists to police the region. In the midst of the chaos is a young man named Kazuma, whose life will soon change forever as he discovers his hidden abilities, and how to wield them.
S-CRY-ed is perfect for the Naruto viewer who doesn't mind watching something a bit old. The main characters are just as determined as Naruto to fulfill a destiny and are always willing to kick some ass to get there. S-CRY-ed is sure to please.
Seven years ago, Kakeru’s sister killed herself, leaving him alone.

Though they manage to escape, Kakeru soon discovers that they aren’t alone; several other students at school also travel to the other dimension, and armed with powerful weapons they battle against its dark inhabitants. Why must they fight, and what is their purpose in the Red Night?
Yes, this is incredibly close to a troll review, but they are remarkably similar anime--they start out as epic action, but end up sappy romance stories. They have characters which will make you want to claw your eyes out. The directors don't seem to have the guts to SPOILER kill of their characters. END SPOILER And they are both overrated.
When Tokidoki Rikugou donned a pair of virtual reality glasses and entered a Bakumatsu-era exhibit at a museum, he had no idea that his life would drastically change. While walking across a bridge in the fabricated reality, Tokidoki ran across a small being and a monster called a nue - and he was promptly attacked. His eye was damaged, but more importantly, Tokidoki discovered that he was now stuck inside the "virtual reality" filled with samurai and spirits. Now, with the help of Kuchiha, a warrior woman possessed by a dog spirit; and Shinonome, a fellow student who has been stuck, just like Tokidoki, for the past two years, Tokidoki must search for the truth behind the nue and try to find a way home.
Naruto has a 9 tails fox demon inside, in amatsuki there is an important character too with the same qualities, and how people react to them is the same. The plot might not be exactly similar, but while watching one you might remember the other.
