Once, the ninja village of Konohagakure was attacked by an evil nine-tailed fox spirit. This demon slaughtered many people until the leader of Konohagakure, the 4th Hokage, sacrificed his life to seal the fox inside a newborn child - Naruto Uzumaki. Now, twelve years later, Naruto is a member of the Ninja Academy; but due to his past Naruto is shunned by the rest of the village, and since he has no friends or family he plays the part of class idiot to get attention. However, he is determined to gain respect by becoming the next Hokage - the most powerful shinobi in the village. With his apparent lack of abilities, will Naruto be able to realize his goal through determination alone?

Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail

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?!

Stray dogs fighting for a pradise.... sounds familiar? Silver fang reminds me alot of Wolf's rain but it deals with dogs instead of wolves. They try to gather many fighting dogs to be able to kill a bear called Akakaboto and find their paradise. This is a really great series and be sure to check it out if you liked Wolf's rain.

Do characters have auras?  If so, the title character Naruto of (obviously) Naruto and lead character Natsu from Fairy Tail seem to have very nearly the same aura.  Not personalities, mind you, though those are similar enough, but that indescribable quality that surrounds a person.  Impossibly high energy, justice-seeking, loyal friends, somewhat stupid walking-disasters...yet somehow still loveable.  If you can't get enough of that kind of guy, you won't get enough of Fairy Tail or Naruto.

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

Rave Master

Rave Master

Haru Glory lives peacefully on Garage Island with his sister. One day, Haru fishes a strange dog-like creature named Plue out of the ocean, and soon after meets its master, an old man named Shiba. With this man comes terrible news: the world is in peril, for the evil organization Demon Card is attempting to conquer it with power-giving stones known as Dark Bring. To combat this threat Shiba has spent much of his life fighting back with Rave, a Holy Bring; and the Ten Commandments, a sword it powers. When members of Demon Card arrive at the island, Shiba discovers that Rave and the Ten Commandments will now only respond to Haru, making the young boy the new Rave Master. Armed with newfound power, Haru and Plue set forth to put a stop to Demon Card.

Naruto and Rave Master both have extremely determined, eternally optimistic heroes who don't give up, no matter how strong their opponents are or how dangerous the environment is. If you like characters with strange abilities, battles for the fate of the world, and a hero who helps as many people as possible, these are both good series for you.

Both of the main characters start out as the weakest of all the characters and end up as the most powerful characters of their series. All the battles in both series create growth within all the characters. And they both have a good balance of humor and action.

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.
