Hunter x Hunter

Hunter x Hunter

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?

Both anime focus a lot on the concept of traveling and killing monsters, coming of age, and looking for a lost loved one, in one case a father and in another case...a father that the son doesn't realize is a father. The animation on both is really good, and the art styles are similar. In fact, it's really hard to like one of these and dislike the other, it's simply a matter of taste to see which one is better.

KiraRin KiraRin says...

These shows are very similar in so many ways. As has already been described, both young boys are practically left as orphans and are left to grow and develop and become as successful as their parents.

Both Gon and Beet have a lot of untapped potential, and the series follows them as they begin to understand how strong they can be. They make a close group of nakama, who all have their own talents and grow in their own way.

If you want a show with lashings of action and battles, Beet and Hunter x Hunter give this aplenty. HxH is a little more serious, but the charm of Beet is it never takes itself too seriously.

Both Beet the Vandel Buster and Ragnarok offer up engrossing fantasy worlds straight out of classic console RPGs. The characters are not overpowered nor overpowering and genuinely likable. The adventures begin immediately and the pace is consistant, with little unneeded exposition. The production values (art, soundtrack, etc.) on both series are excellent, particularly the monster designs, which would make E. Gary Gygax proud.

Kekkaishi

Kekkaishi

Sumimura Yoshimori is a Kekkaishi – an inheritor of the power to battle demons, using barriers called kekkai. His family is charged with protecting the grounds of Karasumori high school, a building which magnifies the power of demons who enter it. Helping him are his spirit-wolf companion Madarao, and next door-neighbor Yukimura Tokine, the daughter of a rival clan. Years ago, Tokine was injured protecting Yoshimori, and now he is determined to become strong enough to keep her from being hurt again. Of course, he'd rather bake his exquisite cakes than have to fight demons at all, but fate has something else in store! As a shadowy demon organization moves to steal Karasumori's power, can Yoshimori overcome legions of demons, a centuries-old family rivalry, and a grandfather who just can't understand his love for baking?

Both Beet and Kekkaishi present the viewer with a young boy with a big target. Typical and yet not typical of the shounen genre, both stories offer the viewer a thrilling, manga-driven storyline.

LordVegita LordVegita says...

Beet and Mar are two series that have a group of characters, who are fighting an evil organization that is out to destroy the world. Both series also have some kind of magical weapons that depends on the user's power. Both are pretty light with some darker elements to them and provide good filler anime enjoyment as their stories aren't high caliber, but are entertaining.

Rave Master

Rave Master

Fifty years ago, the Demon Stone and RAVE (two powerful artifacts) are broken and scattered throughout the world. The story follows the journey of Haru Glory; during his travels he meets many new friends and allies, and also enemies known as the Daemon Card. He will have to use the powers given to him by RAVE to defeat the Daemon Card and find the other pieces of RAVE.

Even though neither Rave nor Beet floats my boat, I feel it's safe to recommend these two anime for each other. In an adventurous world, one is seeking out power to destroy \ evil-doers. Adding a bit and humor with the fights, the atmosphere is very alike. I guess what differentiates them from the typical adventure anime is that they don't develop a deep story and are aimed more towards younger teens.

Maple Story

Maple Story

Ten years ago, Victoria Island's protector of peace and order, the World Tree, was destroyed, and humans were given the blame. Because of the tree's destruction, each of the five races - warriors, archers, magicians, thieves, and humans - moved to Maple Island, and have been enemies with each other ever since. Al is a young human who wants nothing more than to train and become stronger, and to do so, he disguises himself as a non-human to interact with the other races and learn their trades. Along with the snobbish magician Nina, Al will continue his training and search for adventures along the way; but one question remains: why are the evil Zakuns, as well as the other races, trying to find the seeds of the World Tree which were scattered across the land?

This recommendation might be a stretch, but here goes! Though Maple Story seems a little more fun and cute (as far as the monsters and such), I still think fans of Beet might enjoy it. Both are aimed at a young age group and have a distinct game feel, and the main characters are both gung ho about becoming strong and powerful. Try it on for size.

D.Gray-man

D.Gray-man

An akuma is a soul which has been brought back to life through sadness and despair with the powers of Millenium Earl. Their mission is to terrorize the earth and all who dwell within it. The Black Order is a group of Exorcists that have sworn to cleanse the souls of the akuma, and collect the substance known as "innocence". This powerful substance can be used as an anti-akuma weapon, and ultimately can help destroy the evil Millenium Earl. Allen Walker is a young Exorcist who has the ability to tell who is human and who is an akuma with the help of his cursed eye. Together with the Black Order, Allen must find all 109 pieces of innocence to protect the world and defeat Earl.

Sometimes action based shows take themseves a little too seriously. One of the best things about D.Gray Man and Beet is that a lot of it is tongue in cheek humour. For a show to be able to take the mickey out of itself, and poke fun at an entire genre makes a nice change from the usual serious fighting taking place.

The main protagonists are btoh strong, and work hard to become even stronger and defeat the evil plague to have infected the planet. They have weapons powered by their heart and spirit, that grow stronger as they do. Seeing the characters fail, only to come back stronger is something that will have you bouncing back for more.

Fans of one will love the other.

Soul Eater

If you like Demon hunters and weapon conjuration, try this anime. In both "Soul Eater" and "Beet the Vandel Buster", a group of children slays demons by using special weapons. While in "Beet the Vandel Buster" those weapon are spirits of dead heroes, in "Soul Eater" there are some boys who can turn into weapon and fight together with a weapon master. Both animes have around 50 episodes, and there are lots of fights

In these anime, characters behave like they were in a RPG, talking about levels and experience points. Beet the Vandel Buster is more serious as anime, but the age of the audience is the same as Guru Guru.

Sword Art Online

Sword Art Online

The year is 2022, and gamers have lined up on launch day for Sword Art Online, a hotly-anticipated MMORPG that lets players connect to an immersive virtual reality world with special helmets called Nerve Gear. Kirito is one such gamer who's eager to jump back into action, having spent a great deal of time as a beta tester, and quickly becomes friends with newbie warrior Klein. But soon, Sword Art Online's 10,000 players discover that not only are they unable to log out, the only way they can return to their physical bodies is by beating the 100-level tower's final boss - that is, if their HP doesn't drop to zero first, for death in the game means death in the real world. Now, with no one else to turn to, Kirito and the other participants must survive the game as best they can – some forming guilds, others ruthlessly leaving their peers behind, and many tragically falling by the wayside or to the merciless monsters populating the lands...
