Long ago the infamous Gol D. Roger was the strongest and most powerful pirate on the seas. As he was about to be executed he revealed that he hid all of his wealth, including the legendary treasure known as One Piece, on an island at the end of the Grand Line - a treacherous and truly unpredictable sea. Monkey D. Luffy is a spirited, energetic and somewhat dim-witted young man with a very big dream: to find One Piece and become the Pirate King! However Luffy is no ordinary boy, as when he was younger he ate one of the Devil's Fruits and gained its power to become a Rubber Man. Now in this grand age of pirates Luffy sets out to gather a crew and sail to the most dangerous sea in the world so that he can fulfill his dream... and maybe even his appetite!
One day, a man entered a temple that housed forty-eight statues possessed by demons and made a deal: in exchange for ultimate power, they could each take a piece of his soon-to-be born son. Soon after the child came into the world and the demons held up their end of the bargain; the man then left the crippled child in the river to die. Found by a kind doctor, the boy grew older with the help of prosthetic limbs and enhanced senses, but soon demons began to follow him, and the boy - who his new father named Hyakkimaru - left to find a way to complete himself. He searches for the forty-eight demons; each one he vanquishes returns a piece of his body. Alongside the child thief Dororo, Hyakkimaru travels from place to place, hoping to one day become whole.
Most of the chapters of Dororo end with our heroes being told to leave the village that they just saved from demons. When I noticed this I immediately thought of how Luffy's pirate crew in One Piece has to leave the island that they just saved from bad pirates at the end of every arc. And their both shounen action manga. If you like one you should read the other.
Drawn to the mystique of the unknown, Hunters travel the world in search of terrifying creatures, incredible riches, and unexplored lands. Gon Freecss is a naive-yet-determined young boy who aspires to join the ranks of these individuals, in order to find his missing father Ging - a master of the profession himself. To reach his goal, he partakes in the formidable Hunter Exam, a series of tests that push the participants to their physical and mental limits, with a Hunter License as the prize. During the exam Gon befriends vengeful Kurapika, doctor-to-be Leorio, and skilled assassin Killua, who have entered for their own reasons. But with the sinister Hisoka standing in their way, will Gon and his friends be able to succeed in obtaining their reward, or even escaping with their lives?
One Piece and Hunter X Hunter are both similar with the fact that both of the Main characters have almost the same kind of outlook in life. Luffy and Gon are a couple of simple minded people that mostly dedicate themselves to their nakama and dreams, and they happen to have a strong kind of justice. When they started they probably didn't think they would end up meeting many different people, making many different friends and enemies, getting into fights that make them stronger than before, and being amongst the top trouble magnets around. Watch out world, Gon and Luffy are on the loose!
There's an adage that one man's trash is another man's treasure; but for Kosuke Ueki, one man's trash is another man's... tree?! Junior high school teacher Mr. K is in the running for the title of Celestial King. Candidates must select a junior high school student to endow powers upon, and then the students might fight each other mercilessly. The victorious student's benefactor will become the new Celestial King! Kosuke was Mr. K's choice, and for his power, he chose the ability to turn trash into trees. Furthermore, if he uses his abilities to harm others, he will lose one of his natural talents. Now, Kosuke must battle a variety of other power users to help Mr. K win it all, all while keeping his talents intact!
On it's most basic level, both One Piece and Law of Ueki are fairly typical mainstream shounen manga. Both are highly comedic and very wacky in their content, and the central protagonists, Luffy and Ueki are both fairly dim-witted yet inherently powerful teens with a habit of changing those around them. Both manga also centre on the idea of friendship and teamwork. Though One Piece is far more polished, and much more epic, if you enjoyed one, it's worth checking out the other/
The only real similarity between those two series (I can think of), is that they both feature an extremely powerful, but a bit dumb protagonist who is actually good at heart and who can't pass those in need without helping them. There surly are some other similarities, but what I wrote in the first sentence and my "gut feel" will have suffice this time. What I'm trying to say is that, you might enjoy one of those if you liked the other.
Shiki is a young, enthusiastic and rowdy monster hunter who is just starting out. But while most hunters belong to a single guild and only venture into specified hunting territories, Shiki is different. Unlike others, he bears the seal of the forbidden hunter, and as such he only has one goal: to defeat the Forbidden Dragon of Light, Miogaruna. Now, Shiki is teaming up with the reluctant and icy Irie in order to hunt down this legendary beast, but with other powerful hunters seeking to harm him, and countless other monsters in his path, the journey to find Miogurana won’t be straightforward.
in both monster hunter orage and one piece the main charasters are trying to find something sought after by a whole lot of people. Also on the way they meet many nakama and they would ask virtually anyone they come in contact with to be their nakama.
