Kekkaishi

Kekkaishi

Five hundred years ago there lived a feudal lord with a vast amount of spiritual power. To keep it from falling into the hands of demonic Ayakashi, the mage Tokimori Hazama and his two students were called to defend the land. However, they fell ill, and the feudal lord was killed and buried on the land now called Karasumori. Years later the successors of the Hazama students, Yoshimori and Tokine, have inherited the powers of the Hazama clan. They are Kekkaishi, users of the Kekkai, a secret and powerful technique that creates a strong barrier to capture and eliminate Ayakashi. Protectors of the power buried beneath Karasumori, Yoshimori and Tokine spend their days in the school built on the land, and their nights defending it from attackers who wish to use the power for their own purposes. With Karasumori's power growing more unpredictable everyday, will Yoshimori become strong enough to protect the ones he loves?

Action, violence, and protecting the ones you love.  Naruto and Kekkaishi both have many of the same themes.  The also share similar main characters who may not be as strong as everyone else, but the sure do have a whole lot of endurance.  There are a lot of parallels between these two manga.  You will probably like one if you like the other

Yu Yu Hakusho

Yu Yu Hakusho

Yuusuke is a street-fighting, class-skipping juvenile delinquent. Killed in an unexpected act of kindness, he thwarts the spirit-world bureaucracy and ends up with a second chance at life... as infant prince of death Koenma's Spirit Detective! Simultaneously cheered on and kept in line by Keiko Yukimura, his childhood friend, he is joined by a spiritually aware human, two demons on parole, and guided by a much too lively ferry girl of the dead. Together they plow through demons, tournaments, hijinks, intense "martial arts" training, cross-dressers, dungeons, conspiracies and bad puns alike. At the end of the day, what's it all for? Kicking butt and saving the world, of course!

Both the main characters in Naruto and Yu Yu Hakusho are both idiots that do whatever they want whenever they want, but they always have time to do their job. The only bad thing is that the job is almost always a dangerous, if not life threatening job, but the good thing is that they are almost always with a group of friends that will support them. Before you know it you will be thrown into several different action packed adventures with these two lucky idiots that make you wanting to know more of what's going to happen.

Air Gear

Air Gear

Move over, roller skates! The self-propelled, high-tech trick skates known as Air Treck have taken the world by storm. Itsuki ‘Ikki' Minami is a boy who'd love to get his hands on a pair of Air Trecks so he can fly through the sky like the beautiful girl he's seen over the rooftops, but he's left instead with being beat up by brutal, Treck-wearing ‘storm rider' gangs like the Storm Saders. However, Ikki's life changes forever when he discovers that his caretakers, the lovely Noyamono sisters, are actually members of a storm rider gang called the Sleeping Forest. They give Ikki his first pair of Air Trecks, and the rest is history. With new wings that allow him to soar like a bird, Ikki finds himself drawn into the underground world of the storm riders where battles, hot girls and fame await him. What Road will Ikki choose?

Ares is like Naruto but without being as much for kids because the fights get violent but without being reloved around just killing although there's alot of that too. Its about a boy who joins up with a team of people and they go fighting for waring countrys. Sounding familiar? Its without super power and it has the same essence of Sasuke and Naruto in the two main characters and its a manga you wont be able to stop reading.

Rurouni Kenshin

Rurouni Kenshin

Rurouni Kenshin is the story of a revolutionary patriot fighting to conceal his bloody past in the new Meiji era of Japan. Battosai Himura's role in the revolution was so infamous that it earned him the title ‘Hitokiri' (Manslayer). To put that fearful name and his past behind him, Himura returned to his original name of Kenshin, reversing the blade on his sword to make it non-lethal, swearing to never take another life and beginning again as an ordinary rurouni (wandering samurai). He meets Kaoru Kamiya, a spirited girl who runs the local dojo and is the first of several friends to accept him for who he is, not who he was. But Kenshin's past will not leave him alone, and with old rivals remerging, groups attempting to shatter the hard earned peace, and those with desire to face the legendary Battousai, all chasing after Kenshin, can he protect those he cares about and still maintain his oath?

I am a huge fan of both and I've noticed so many similarities between these series. Many elements of Naruto seem directly taken from RuroKen. Kishimoto claims Naruto was inspired by Dragon Ball, but it seems more closely related to Kenshin.
