Both have superhero themes(eg:- Superhero rankings,test,lvls). Paired with superb animation. Both also have a large cast.

Both are engrossed in the whole 'superhero' concept, unique art styles and characters. Both of these anime are amazing and deserve all the respect :)

GabiiTachibana GabiiTachibana says...

Although the protaganists are exceptionally different, both anime involve eccentric superheroes and a competitive hero ranking system. They are also both really funny!

ashman711 ashman711 says...

one is a show about someone so overpowering it's ridiculous while the other is about someone without powers in a world full or super beings.  both showcase the true meaning of being a hero.

AmazingLagann AmazingLagann says...

Both shows have the same premise, but deal with different themes. Hero Academia is a action/drama show, and One Punch Man is a comedy. Both of these shows bring their respective genres to their full potential.

As they are both incredibly high quality, they are similar enough that if you liked one, you'll probably feel the same about the other.

Well they are both anime about heroes and the are both funnywhile they Can still be badass moments! 10\10 for one punch man, 7/10 for Boku no hero academia (There are some partsthat Can be long)

Trinah101 Trinah101 says...

(I would like to preface this with, although I have not finished Oone Punch Man anime, I read the manga(so it might be slightly different... probably not from what I heard though.)

Both anime have about the same world, filled with super heros, and so there is a wide range of differnet powers. One Punch Man is more comedy than Hero Academia, however in types of worlds they are very similar. The difference comes in the characters. While both main characters just wanted to be super heros...

In One Punch Man, our main character decided one day to become a hero and so trained and became really immensely strong. So strong his hair fell out and he could defeat anything in one punch. Really though, he just wants to find someone who is a challenge to defeat.

In Hero Academia, our main character is a fan boy of a famous super hero, and although he does not have any quirks (the name for powers in this anime), he still dreams of becoming a hero and chases this dream even though everyone says it's impossible. Well, without giving too much away, he gets closer to reaching his dream throughout the anime. We watch him grow from a quirkless boy to someone quickly becoming stronger and much more able to stand up for himself instead of whimpering away.

sunnysuraj sunnysuraj says...

Both have interesting mega-powerful male leads whose personalities seem not to match their level of power. My Hero Academia has more focus on character growth and themes of struggling to fit in during adolescence, while One-Punch Man is just a lighthearted comedy with not much heaviness at all. 

Haruka99 Haruka99 says...

Both consist of main characters who are looked down apon but continue to fight to make there dreams a reality.

Jdogtoocool Jdogtoocool says...

Agreed. Both shows are awesome super hero based anime that actually share a lot of similarities, One Punch Man is more Seinen/Gore/Adult Themes while My Hero Academia is for the younger audience with fun Lesson of the Day episodes, both are very explosive and entertaining anime

etherealism etherealism says...

Both animes contain the theme of superheroes fighting villains, along with awesome animation and character designs that aren't extremely common.

However, if you like animes where the main character is overpowered all the way because you are allergic to weakness, watch OPM and not My Hero Academia.

On the other hand, if you can't stand animes where the main character rekts every person they fight because that leads to predictable results, don't watch OPM, watch my Hero Academia.

One Punch Man is all about the comedy whereas My Hero Academia is about the struggles the MC goes through in order to achieve growth.

Both animes made me tear up; OPM because I laughed too hard and My Hero Academia because of some rather emotional moments (':

Jarubakit Jarubakit says...

I just want to agree on this recommendation to help out. Now I'm just filling up hundred characters.

Hutai Hutai says...

Both anime have a world where humans and monsters live in same society.Both have heroes fighting monstersBot anime are light, but have lots of action and sometimes are funny.

Lizardbitch Lizardbitch says...

Ridiculous scenarios during fights, likeable characters, superheroes and super hero powers, heroes in the normal world, and both funny moments as well as supposedly serious moments that you just can't help but laugh at, plus the main hero is... interesting... looking.

IndyGamer IndyGamer says...

The worlds are very similar. Also, the main character in One Punch Man, Saitama, has a power that seems remarkably similar to All Might's. Except Saitama can literally beat anything with one punch. The animation in both is great, and both of the shows are "fully aware of themselves" in how they portray heroes.

Slayers Slayers says...

Both anime involve a hero agency that is tasked with protecting the world from monsters that are trying to destroy the Earth.

Solidwolf Solidwolf says...

Two of my fav anime, both are very similar, and easy to get into. -Both give similar, but different looks into a society created by the introduction of powered heroes/villains

-Both are set in a world of superheroes, and villains. Both are really funny, but still have interesting storylines. Both have a likeable, powerful protagonist, who want nothing more than to be a hero. Both feature a few interesting hero side characters.

Recommend trying if you like superhero related movies/shows, looking for beginner anime, want an anime that is funny but not completely a comedy

LadyPsychic LadyPsychic says...

Both series take place in a world full of superheroes.  Both have a large cast of charcters.  Finally, both have plenty of comedy scenes, but also lots of awesome action scenes.  

FullmetalDragon FullmetalDragon says...

Both series feature a world in which superheroes are pretty commonplace and there's even organisations out there for them. They both have kinda similar senses of humour as well, and frankly they're both just awesome.

RoyalOss RoyalOss says...

If you like hero based stories with lots of action, humour and great animation you can't go wrong with either My Hero Academia or One-Punch Man.

Where One-Punch Man focusses on an overpowered hero, My Hero Academia instead focusses on a student receiving an overpowered superpower.

niotabunny niotabunny says...

if you're looking for two super hero from zero scenario then look no further.  the art style is very similar same with the flavor of the characters.  having no super powers and wanting to be a hero at any means possible even if it means it could kill you.  once obtaining the ability to be a super hero that doesn't stop them there, for once you're a super hero there are always the villains and super villains, of which we see plenty in both as well.

Saatout Saatout says...

 My Hero Academia: The episodes get straight to the point. They are action packed and you really get a feel for each character and his or her motives and aspirations. The clash of shared desires to become the number one hero, coupled with the various similar and varying reasons for this, make for an epic viewing experience.

One-Punch Man: there is just one number one and he is awesome. Much like  My Hero Academia each episode is fast paced but not at the expense of you not being able to follow the motives of the characters. The episodes are hilarious and epic all in one. 

the visual styles of both anime are also very appealing.

charschemer charschemer says...

I like actions and characters with superpowers. Animes have a lesson that actually reflect in real life

drizzy999 drizzy999 says...

Both fun modern battle shounens that are self aware of what they are, have funny characters and great battles. Both are set in a world where heroes are a thing, and there's a rank of heroes.

While One Punch Man is more of a parody and My Hero Academia is a show with a plot that takes itself more seriously, I think they share the same crowd.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

christoferho19 christoferho19 says...

Both telling about a world where Heroes are real, have an organization that act like it's government and Heroes are a general job.

Both are great anime, but One punch man currently just have 1 season and it's only 1 cour and My Hero Academia ( Boku no Hero Academia) already have 3 season.

One punch Man season 2 already confirmed and Boku no Hero Academia to will have a movie and season 4 confirmed.

Both are great Anime, but one punch man is more like centered main character and boku no hero academia have many main character like actualy the whole class is the main character.

If you like one, you're gonna like the other. The stories may be different, but some themes are similar with physical exams that the character is relatively clueless about, yet rocks the shit out of it, story from the point of view of a younger boy, and green/black, spikey/curly hair :D Seriously though, mark my first sentence. ;) enjoy!

gracie123 gracie123 says...

Both are shoneon type shows with adventure and all that fun stuff but there's a lot more character development and depth to both these shows that sets them apart from other shonen anime. Hxh has more character development and depth but it's had much more shows to do so in. If you like the training and idea that an underdog can use strategy and willpower to win instead of just getting some random power up at the last second then you'd definitely like Gon and the other characters in hxh

My Hero Academia and Hunter x Hunter are both shounen and they both have a similar MC (with Gon and Midoriya). They're also both the best out of the genre and there is a lot more in both these anime besides fighting and power-ups.

They are awesome and are worth recommending and watching.

Naruto

Naruto

Naruto Uzumaki is a young ninja who bears a great power hidden inside him, a power that has isolated him from the rest of his village. As such, his only dream is to become the Hokage - the most powerful ninja, and leader of the village; but first he needs to graduate! With his inability to perform even the most basic ninja techniques, it seems that all Naruto has going for him is his determination to succeed no matter what. Teamed up with the genius Sasuke, book-smart Sakura, and their team leader Kakashi, Naruto embarks on his quest to become the Hokage. But with outside forces posing a threat to the entire Hidden Leaf village, Naruto discovers that he must become much stronger if he ever wants to realize his dream and protect the friendships he's forged.

Shounen action shows with colourful casts of varying personalities and superpowers who fight each other, with an underdog protagonist who dreams big. Both have a lot of focus on the main character and his rival.

Karasune Karasune says...

Deku and Naruto are very similiar main characters - they're seemingly weak and untalented, but are also strong-hearted and filled with determination towards their dreams; to become strong like their hero (Deku) and to become the greatest Hokage (Naruto). Their determination and hardwork eventually lead them down a path that makes them stronger, and both shows follow the tale of how that happens. The school exams in MHA are reminicent of Naruto's Chuunin exams, and Deku and Bakugo's rivalry is much like that of Naruto and Sasuke's. I'm sure fans of one will be interested in the other. 

Bibliophili Bibliophili says...

Both protagonists have a dream that they will do anything to acheive. Also both Izuku and Naruto start from the bottom of the totem pole, have power that is not originally theirs that they need to control, have friends and sensei who support them, and you can see paralleks in Naruto/Sasuke and Izuku/Bakugo. Excellent coming of age stories. If you liked one you'll like the other.

SpicyKatsudon SpicyKatsudon says...

They are both action packed with intense fight scenes. The plot is similar, a young who wishes to accomplish his dream, along the way he will have to face many obstacles, but thanks to the people who are there by his side he'll make it happen!

LadyPsychic LadyPsychic says...

Both series involve superheroes/people with superpowers.  Both have a large cast of characters and contain a nice mix of comedy, drama, and action.

zirkkun zirkkun says...

Humanity has taken its next step into evolution where humans have begun to develop superpowers. Because of that, society has a new form of occupation: heroes. Now, which one of these shows did I just describe? With a description that vague, it's hard to tell -- which is why it will be very easy for a fan of Hero Academia to pick up Tiger and Bunny or vice versa.

Hero Academia has a far more fun tone to the majority of the series and is more of a "coming of age" story due to being in a high school environment. Tiger and Bunny on the other hand is about adults for the most part, and has a rather serious tone, being far more plot-driven as apposed to Hero Academia's character-driven nature. However, despite that, they both have pretty strong casts where the protagonists have clear goals in mind. Izuku Midoriya goes through through high school to become the greatest hero of all time, all while the villians target him; Kotetsu Kaburagi has to go through emotional and family problems with his partner Barnaby Brooks while trying to be a good dad and a model hero at the same time.

Both protagonists want to become what is good in the world, and while for Izuku most people are the same way, most people look down on Kotetsu for his attitude since being a hero in Sternbild City means to be flashy and fantastic. Heroes in Hero Academia are respected and there are thousands of them. The job is considered dangerous and the show makes it clear that it is not the fun that the television makes people believe. Because of that, students are then taught at a young age the truth about being a hero before it's too late for them to find out. However, the opposite is true for Tiger and Bunny: heroes are known as celebrities and there are very few successful in the business. Fame is measured by screen time rather than heroicness or justice served -- so despite the fact that Kotetsu does the most work out of any of the Hero TV members, he is almost fired from his job for not being flashy enough on air.

All in all, both shows are fantastic in the genre of superheroes, which is coming from someone who usually doesn't like this genre at all. They come from almost the same concept, but take two very different end results, and it makes both series easy to pick up if you've watched one but also interesting enough to not feel repetitive while watching the other.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

The foundation of alchemy is based on the law of equivalent exchange; you cannot produce something from nothing. As such, alchemy is bound by one taboo - human transmutation. Four years ago two young brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, broke this taboo when they tried to resurrect their dead mother. During the process Al's body disintegrated and Ed lost his leg. In a desperate attempt to prevent his brother from disappearing completely, Ed sacrificed one of his arms so he could affix Al's soul to a suit of armor. When his missing limbs are replaced by auto mail parts, Ed bears the name of the Fullmetal Alchemist - the youngest ever State Alchemist and dog of the military. Now, alongside his brother, Ed uses his status within the military to attempt to find any way that he can return their bodies back to their original state.

Though both seem quite different what they have in common in that great main character who gets in tight and hard situations, but is willing to do everything it takes to get through it, having a great goal in their mind, and for that goal they're not afriad to get hurt or even sacrifice their body. Edward and Midoriya are both always willing to help and do good, fight for what they think is right. And both anime has lots of great fights and that villian/enemy doing work from the shadows.

With a large cast of characters with various powers, both anime showcase fun and quirky personalities. I would say that Boku no Hero Academia is like a more focused Fairy Tail; there's way less episodes, way less filler, and more fights. Granted, the trade off is that if you've been sticking around in Fairy Tail, you're probably more attached to those characters because of how long you've known them in comparison to those from Boku No Hero Academia. With a second season now airing however, Boku no Hero Academia may prove to change that and add in more character development for more than just the protagonist. Both series have a tournament arc and both series have that classic shounen feel to them.

Although both of them have a main character the shows focus on, it really emphasizes the growth of the students as a class and how each of their unique abilities and techniques contribute to the class as a whole, even when there is impending danger surrounding them. If you enjoyed the emphasis of growth and gimics of watching an entire class progress and improve in Assassination Classroom, you'll really be in for a treat by also watching My Hero Academia (especially the manga).

the two shows have a similar feel also the main charicter gets superpowers in the proces of the anime so thats another similarity and also the teacher student feel is also more or less the same.

Both of these animes are school settings where the characters learn the arts of fighting through various ways. Hero Academia has students with quirks (super powers) while AC has ordinary students become extraordinary in the art of assassination. They both have similar shonen themes, training methods, tactics, characters, and missions. I loved both these anime personally too.
