Flame of Recca

Flame of Recca

Recca dreams of one day becoming an excellent ninja, but in this day and age ninjas are only talked about in history lessons. While playing his ninja games, he meets a mysterious woman that reveals to Recca his past, his bond with the powerful Hokage clan, and the special flame power that resides within him. Meanwhile, the evil Kurei has plans to gather the madougu from the Hokage clan so that he may take control over the elemental powers, but Recca is determined to master his flame and stop Kurei’s evil plans. Does he have what it takes to live up to his own expectations and put a stop to Kurei himself?

Like shaman king, it is a light hearted fighting anim.
FINSahaqiel
Both have a lot of fighting and supernatural powers.
TheBurningCrow
All I can say is if you like Shaman King but wanted a bit more action and excitement, Flame of Recca is definately for you! Also the other way around, if Recca was too intense at times, Shaman King gives you a different feel on fighting, using spirits instead of elemental weapons. The main character in each series are a lot alike, VERY devoted.
jastheace
Although some would not pair this series with Flame of Recca I believe it is a good match. The ability to "Oversoul" is similar to using elements in Flame of Recca. It allows the user to tap a resource beyond their own power and fight at a new level. Definately a must-see.
freakzilla

Shaman King is a bit more laid back while Flame of Recca doesn't waste any time and gets straight to the serious fighting. Yet the fighting style is very similar, so you should like this one as well.

Vilho

The common element whit Flame of Racca and Shaman King is hard to explain.

Sirits of Shaman king can be sayd to be similar to the spirits of flames in Recca.

astraea

The theme of both anime revolves around tournaments and fighting. The other uses spirits, the other uses secret ninja weapons. I think you'll love them both.

Bleach

Bleach

Fifteen-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a typical teen with fighting skills, two caring sisters and a special trait: he can see ghosts. However, when Ichigo and his family find themselves under attack by a huge beast, Ichigo discovers that there’s more to the supernatural world than the everyday specter. Vengeful spirits known as Hollows roam the world in search of devouring souls, and Shinigami – soul reapers – work tirelessly to defeat them and guide normal ghosts into a place called Soul Society. Ichigo valiantly fights the Hollow that threatens his sisters, but on the verge of defeat a Shinigami named Rukia gives him her powers, turning him into a Shinigami himself. Ichigo must now adjust to his new life of both vanquishing and saving souls for the sake of Soul Society.

Both of the series are about spiritual power and spirits/ghosts. They both have a theme of saving those who are normal, unlike themselves. Battles are present in both.

saiyamar

These anime are undeniably similar. Although Shaman King is more lighthearted than Bleach as a whole they are both packed full of spirits/ghosts, comedy and action/fighting. There is also the usual issues of romance thrown in but they are both rather small references and are not all that focused upon. (This goes for Bleaach more than Shaman King which has a bit more).

Anyway, if you liked one then you will almost certainly like the other.

Davozz

Shaman King and Bleach are both Epic tales of a young man discovering his inherent strength.

Further, the trust in friends, component is present, ie: Both Ichigo and Yoh have to rely on their friends and companions in their adventures.

The overall feel of the two series are quite similar and I believe they are worth a try for most people.

KiraRin

Kick-ass spirit fighting is central to both Bleach and Shaman King, and will appeal to the same shounen fan. With plenty of character development, insane enemies and unlimited power-up moves, both shows are the perfect recommendations for each other.

Bodekai

Both Very fantasy like. You should definitely watch both if You have not already. The characters are cool and they have motivation to train and fight.

misthero

If you like cool and grand weapon transformation(s) and attacks that'd make you stand up on your seat while watching, then Shaman King and Bleach offer that, minus the lots of chitchat. Both anime titles will take you a trip to how Spiritual Battles are done.

The tournament to become God or the tournament to become Shaman King? Competitors gather around Ueki and Yoh because they like their personality and convictions and together they go to the trounament to defeat people who want to use the prize for evil. These two anime have very similar structures and main characters so if you enjoyed one you should enjoy the other.

Kodras

Although I've not finished watching Shaman King myself (yet) it's already displayed a strong tournament theme similar to that of Ueki. Both contain fights which are organised by a higher power, and both main characters have opponents they either look forward to fighting, or don't really want to fight. If you like anime where the action is a bit more structured, these two are for you.

chimera

Both series have a similar structured plot line and even the main characters are similar with laid back attitudes. They both participate in a tournament to win an awesome prize and they make many friends as well enemys as they try to reach their goal.

Kari5

Both these shows take place during a large tournament, to become God or the Shaman King. There are a few main characters, with new friends and enemies appear every few episodes. There's plenty of life lessons including friendship and trust. The characters are similar in the way that some are just wacky looking so you remember them.

Deer50

They both compete in a tournament to become "king." Powers are lent by spirits/candidates. They both have a "fight for your friends" motto.Characters have different abilities. Both have a villian with a bad past bent on destroying the world. One prankster/jokester character joins the main group.

Naruto

Naruto

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.

Shaman King and Naruto are very similar. Both start out as a a light hearted comedy with a little fighting, but later turn into a serious fighting anime.
freakzilla

Both Naruto and Shaman King start out slow and have a familiar scent, but later on the stories become heavier and you are drawn into them. 

crimsoneyes

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.

DarkScribe

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.

KiraRin

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.

AnimeUnrivaled
Groove Adventure Rave and Shaman King both center around characters with powers peculiar to themselves. While the underlying basis for the powers in each of the shows is entirely unique, both shows seem to share the same spirit. Yoh and Haru are entirely different characters, but both provide moments of intense laughter as well as moments of complete sincerity. Both characters attempt to keep living a light-hearted lifestyle while taking upon intense responsibilities only they can face. The trials in both shows are entirely serious while the friendships made along the way in the two are hillariously entertaining. The balance between good humor, intense action, and intriguing plotline is mirrored between the shows. That's definitely a good thing.
freakzilla

Rave and Shaman King are both lighthearted series. With a laid back atmosphere, some fun fights and eventually a decent story, I'd say these anime have quite a few things in common.

charliechan

If you like the idea about people fighting with magical swords then theses are for you. Both have great action fights and good plots to follow.
