If you liked the Shaman King anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
Drawn to the mystique of the unknown, Hunters travel the world in search of terrifying creatures, incredible riches, and unexplored lands. Gon Freecss is a naive-yet-determined young boy who aspires to join the ranks of these individuals, in order to find his missing father Ging - a master of the profession himself. To reach his goal, he partakes in the formidable Hunter Exam, a series of tests that push the participants to their physical and mental limits, with a Hunter License as the prize. During the exam Gon befriends vengeful Kurapika, doctor-to-be Leorio, and skilled assassin Killua, who have entered for their own reasons. But with the sinister Hisoka standing in their way, will Gon and his friends be able to succeed in obtaining their reward, or even escaping with their lives?
In Shaman King and Hunter X Hunter the atmosphere is about the same. The main characters are quite similar in looks as well as in temperament. So if you are like me and just love that feel good feeling, HXH is most definitely for you.
The main characters in HxH and Shaman King have the same morals, and the two anime have a somewhat familiar atmosphere. If you liked one, I'm sure you'll like this shounen title as well.
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?
I don't really know why but i think that these two anime feel the same to some degree. It might be the comedy and style of the anime all together that makes it feel like that but it doesn't really matter.
I think that you ought to give this anime a go if you enjoyed the other one as it is probably goin to be the same for you too and you'll enjoy it.
Throughout his life, Oozora Reiji has always been rather half-hearted. Never able to fully dedicate himself to anything, he lives a sloppy day-to-day existence, until his classmate Yukino introduces him to Dragon Drive -- a virtual reality game. While Reiji garners a passion for the game, it would seem that its founders have other things in mind than simple entertainment. During a special training, Reiji discovers that Dragon Drive is more than just a game, and now must fight for the survival of the dragons as well as all of mankind!
Lucy is a seventeen-year-old mage with the power to summon stellar spirits, but what she really wants to do is join a guild - and not just any guild. She has her eyes set on Fairy Tail, a notoriously reckless and outrageous group of magic users who are likely to be drunk or destroying buildings and towns in the process of completing a job! While in town one day Lucy meets a perpetually-seasick boy named Natsu who, through a series of events, reveals to her that he's none other than the fire-eating mage Salamander of Fairy Tail! Lucy is finally able to join Fairy Tail and quickly begins to take on odd jobs with Natsu and his gang for fame and profit. Along with her fiery friend, Happy the flying cat, Natsu's archrival Gray and their overseer the invincible and beautiful Erza, Lucy sets forth for epic adventures that leave an epic amount of destruction in their wake. After all, destroying a city or five doesn't matter as long as they get the job done... right?!
Both of these shows are about a group of friends who travel, and fight many battles together. They're shounen/adventure/comedies will similar humor and art styles. Fans of one might enjoy the other.
Both anime include big battles and superpowers, there also about friends and travelling. And both anime tell about what happens along the way to the friends when they travel. Plus the styles of both anime look a bit the same.
Kagome is a normal high school girl who falls into a well, transporting her back in time to the feudal era. Upon her arrival to this world, she mercifully unleashes Inuyasha, a half demon. As if this isn't enough, she also discovers that she is the bearer of the Shikon no Tama, a jewel of great spiritual power, a jewel which has just shattered into a million shards. Now, along with Miroku the priest, Sango the demon hunter, and Shippou the mischievious fox-demon, they must set out to find the Shikon shards and defeat the evils of the demon Naraku.
Both InuYasha and Shaman King can be considered shounen anime as they super powered fights. Yet both have something extra as well: a lighthearted aspect that shies clear of being a full-blooded comedy, and a laidback flow that helps interrupt the fights.
Shaman King and InuYasha are both about fighting. Although Shaman King ended with a cliff-hanger ending, it's still nice. If you liked one, you're sure to like the other. Because both have characters that fight super cool!! XD
