In the ancient past, a highly-intelligent and technologically-advanced civilization was pushed to extinction, leaving behind relics known as O-Parts. These mysterious items are only usable by a select type of beings known as O-Parts Tacticians, and give their users powerful abilities. Jio is a boy who, as a child, was driven out of his village after being accused of killing his best friend Jin's parents. Since then, he underwent training with a lone wolf named Zero and now is on a quest to conquer the world! One day, Jin runs across a girl and saves her from a monster. Her name is Ruby Crescent, and she's a treasure hunter in search of O-Parts. Together, the two travel the land, encountering fierce organizations, old enemies and new friends. But more importantly, they slowly learn more about their pasts, including the discovery that Jin harbors a dark secret: he holds within him the power of Satan, the ultimate evil!
In an effort to help save the planet from global warming and other manmade problems, Mystickers have been created. When affixing a Mysticker to an object and tracing its outline, fire, ice, electric or light energies are activated. However, while Mystickers are helping revolutionize the way people use energy, in secret a war wages between Blazers – people with the ability to stick a Mysticker directly to their body and harness its energy. Some desire power and abuse their abilities, while others known as the Guardian Division work to put a stop to these deviants. Daichi is a boy who picks fights with others to steal their Mystickers and become stronger; but one day, he’s targeted by a Blazer, and on the verge of defeat he’s saved by the sacrifice of someone very close to him. Determined to take revenge, Daichi agrees to join the Guardian Division, and takes on missions to help become as strong as he can be. However, it won’t be easy, as another more sinister, evil organization wants their hands on Daichi and his special abilities…
Blazer Drive and O-Parts have the same concept to them. Collect items and on will become off the wall strong. Both of the main characters are relatively the same age (O-parts this comes later) and desire to protect what is close to them. Though the collectibles are O-Parts and stickers, both humans utilize them for good and bad, which is the greater enemy in both mangas. With the same exciting feel, the race to control the best items will have your blood rushing.
Both of these are extremely similar in concept, heck they were written by the same mangaka, Blazer Drive being the later of the two, it is influenced greatly by 666 satan. O-parts and Mystickers are basicly the same kinda thing, both mangas have good fight scenes, both have parts that are god damn hilarious etc. etc. They're pretty much peas in a pod, like one you'll like the other.
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?
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.
Having a demon living in you isn't all that fun for both main characters in Naruto and O-Parts. 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.
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?!
Admittedly, Fairy Tail and O-Parts Hunter don't have much in common, plot-wise. But both are very similar shounen titles with a hefty sense of adventure and tons of action. They both read very quickly and will definitely appeal to the same audience!
Metallica Metalluca and 666 Satan go hand-in-hand when it comes to a world where people rely on certain collectable/rare items to live. Both these shounen manga center around a young boy who’s goal is to collect the rarest of rare items in the world. They both set out on a journey and early on in the journey, they are accompanied by a woman who feels she has a use for our main character. Our main character is also something special. He is not like any other human and processes incredible skills with the items. So if you haven’t already checked out the new series by now, try it or the other one.
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.
Both of them were probably the best manga I have ever read. Yeah, so there was the stereotypical strong, determined protagonist who gets by on courage and determination to protect his friends. Then the attractive female character who has a secret power, and we all know they'll get together eventually. But, the plots were both unique and slightly different from your average manga. The fighting is intense. The deaths make you bawl. And the love is just so beautiful. Ah, they both just tweak your heartstrings.
