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?!

Fairy Tail and One Piece resemble each other in a lot of ways. They both focus heavily on friendship and how emotions for those you love can give that extra 10% you need to beat your opponent. One of the main characters in Fairy Tail, Natsu, also reminds me of Monkey D. Ruffy in a lot of sutuations. If you've only read one of them give the other one a try.

Tarrick Tarrick says...

There characters are very similar and the plot and pacing can give you a feeling of deja vu at times.

Where are Fairy Tale and One Piece not similar.  Luffy and Natsu both have remarkable power and take every challenge head on.  They both are happy go-lucky guys who are optimistic about everything.  When both mangas started out, both characters were without close friends but as the story went on, they gradually started to form a group of unbeatable friends with all sorts of powers.

Though the story's may differ, the atmosphere one gets from reading about how both Natsu and Luffy take on hardships is almost inspirational.  The battles are intense and just freaking powerful.  Each page is suspenseful in both mangas and everyone should jump aboard with Natsu and Luffy's adventure.

Aside from both being popular shounen manga, both One Piece and Fairy Tail are comedic adventure stories that are a bit wacky and good fun. Both Luffy and Natsu are very similar in their boundless confidence, massive appetite and slightly dim nature. If you like one, it's well worht trying the other.

aspitsa aspitsa says...

fairy tail is a lot similar with one piece, the character of two protagonists is childish, reckless and funny but they have strong will and care for they friends

HexaSept HexaSept says...

They are both very different but similar in their own ways. In Fairy Tail, Lucy is more of the focus than Nami is in One Piece, and the plots are quite different. (Personally, I prefer FT, but OP is pretty cool too.) But they are similar in the fact that anime focus on 'nakama power' etc.

Natsu and Luffy are very similar too, both have massive appetites and are immensely powerful.

If you liked one, it's highly likely that you'll love the other.

Both male characters, Natsu and Luffy, are strong willed individuals who defy what people say and go beyond strangers expectations of them. They both love their friends and will protect them and they both are funny. All the other characters are funny and interesting to watch develop and both Fairy Tail and One Piece show the main characters building strength and getting stronger individually and as a whole. Both are about fighting bad guys too and neither are about simple humans, it's wizards or pirates.

Both have superpowers, good humour, sweet actions scenes,goofy main characters, interesting characters and a storyline that makes you want to see the end, while you don't want it to end at the same time

Fabu Fabu says...

They are both highly stylized.  They also both have fantastical fighting elemtents and a comedy style. 

soolaac soolaac says...

Because both main characters er funny, stupid and super loyal. And they both have amazing friends who help them on theire journey.

Both these are comedy action series about a group of strong fighters who traveling together. Their comedy and art syles are also very similar. Fans of one would enjoy the other.

Maetessa Maetessa says...

One Piece and Rave Master are quite similar in that they have a protaganist going out into the world on a crazy adventure with all kinds of crazy and weird characters and accumulating unique party members.  I started reading them both at about the same time and found them to be quite similar.

Kevakmt Kevakmt says...

Both Haru and Luffy, insanely strong and equally stupid, make many important comrades as they go on an adventure to reach their goals. Though they can be sometimes chessy, both are incredibly funny. With just the right amount of tear-jerking moments, they are entertaining and incredible manga! I'd highly recomend both of them!

miko miko says...

it's odd how similar these are, trust me, there are serious moments, comedy moments and the lead role is made up of a male who makes some weird friends and go on magical adventures with said friends.

Both the main characters in Naruto and One Piece have limitless determination when it comes to their dreams. They don't care if you try to harm them mentally or physically but they will crush you with their true strength when it comes to harming anyone that they care about. Other than that all you will see is a couple of idiots that can't take care of themselves unless someone is with them. Leaving the reader wanting to see what will happen to these two people in their numerous battle packed adventures on their way to achieving their dreams.

cassiesheepgirl cassiesheepgirl says...

Both Naruto and One Piece have  central protagonist who is driven by the determination to fulfil their dream. Both Naruto and Luffy are headstrong and vivacious characters that you can't help but like. Mix in a good dose of humour and action and if you enjoyed one then the other is well worth checking out!

SnowyGamer SnowyGamer says...

Both Naruto and Onepiece have similar main charcters. There both underdogs trying to aim for something higher.

Kari5 Kari5 says...

Both of these shows are shonen series by Shonen Jump. They have a fun and hilarious cast of characters, who always stick together. With a goal in mind, they travel together defeating rivals and enemies. Fans of one would enjoy the other as well.

PantsMan PantsMan says...

If you enjoy shounen involving relatively laid back protagonists, bands of rarely separable friends and superpowers of all shapes and sizes, don't forget to check out either of these classic shounen; you won't be disappointed if you liked the atmosphere of either one of these two series...

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!

If you're looking for unique stories and big adventures full of twists and turns, not to mention characters that you just can't get enough of, then I really recommend checking out this series. It's an older series but has all of the action packed fights and kick-butt villans that we've come to adore in One Piece. Get introduced to the same kind unlikely heros. You never know what you might find!

miko miko says...

you can't go wrong with these two pair ups, if you're looking for something different, with each containing just about everything of a genre, from comedy, to drama to even some scifi/horror then these two is a must see.
