Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...
The soul of the demon Mouryou has been freed, and with it his ambition to take over the world and create a "Thousand Year Kingdom." However, he will first have to recover his body from where it was sealed by the priestess Miroku. The only threat to his plans is Miroku’s daughter Shion, the only one with the power to stop him – and it will be up to Naruto, Sakura, Lee and Neji to escort her safely to once more seal Mouryou's soul. However, things won't be easy for Naruto and the gang: Mouryou has control over an unstoppable ghost army and has sent four ninjas to kill Shion; even more alarming is Shion’s newest vision of an impending death… which involves Naruto himself.
Luffy is pretty much Naruto in a pirate suit with a flag.. Except maybe alittle more clueless and loves meat awhole lot more then noodles. Seriously though, Naruto has his dream to become Hokage. Luffy has his dream of becoming the "Pirate King". Both are the highest titles one can obtain in there respective "Career Choices". Overcoming numerous challenges and obstacles along the way, winning the hearts of friends and people alike without ever losing a shred of their aloofness. The way I see it, I keep on bouncing between Naruto epi's and One Piece epi's. The way my favoritism wavers the age old question may never be answered... "Who would win, Pirates or Ninja?"
Gene Starwind and Jim Hawkins make a living on various jobs and bounties.

In a world where humans are enslaved by beast men, there is one person who wishes to destroy it all: Morute, the leader of the World Destruction Committee. She sets out on a journey with an ancient artifact known as the "Destruct Code," a device rumored to have the power to destroy the world and turn everything back into sand. Along the way she finds two companions: the kind-hearted human Kyrie, and aspiring hero and beast man Toppi. Together the trio travels the world, always staying out of reach of the World Salvation Committee. Will they discover the secrets of the Destruct Code, and more importantly, succeed at destroying the world?
Its not just the action. Its not just the bonding of the friends involved. Its the good old fashioned adventure type series that drew me to both of these shows.
Both set in a world very different from our own, One Piece and World Destruction feature some fascinating characters that are met along the way. not always human, and with a pinch of fantasy, these series will appeal to someone with an active imagination.
If you enjoy seeing a closely knit group of desperados exploring the world around them, fighting aversity, you will enjoy both of these shows.
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?
Action, comedy, amazing characters. Each of these anime have this and more. Both Kakkaishi and One Piece drip with a large cast of enjoyable characters who will entertain you for hours. Fighting to protect the ones you love? They both address just that. If you like one you will like the other.
