Both Naruto and O-parts hunter almost exactly alike, except O-parts is more mature and deals more with religion than Naruto. Both of the main characters have evil demons inside of them that try to take over their bodies. Some of the characters are similar as well (Jin and Sasuke, for example, both had similar powers). Both of these series' have timeskips during which the characters become more mature mentally and physically.

Both boys find it hard to live a normal everyday life when they are both always being pushed away from others. So how will they survive this harsh world? That is something you have to find out on your own in the grand adventures these two will take you on. With the help of a few friends they will show you a world that only they can see and the power they have to use in order to keep those demons away from harming anyone in this action packed adventure of theirs.

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.
