His dream of engaging challenging foes has gone up in smoke, and his overpowered life is filled with overpowering boredom.

RickGrimes RickGrimes says...

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

SakuraT37 SakuraT37 says...

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.

SuperGeekSwordsman SuperGeekSwordsman says...

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.

syirayukii syirayukii says...

Laird Laird says...

In one-punch man, we see a guy who are already the stongest, while in my hero academia we see a guy who tries to be the stongest

Plus they both have the hero orgination

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.

Shadow22m Shadow22m says...

Both are hilarious anime centered around a powerful main character. One Punch Man too powerful for his own good. My Hero Academia he's getting there.

BJJShutIn BJJShutIn says...

Both are superhero anime containing unique, fun characters. They also both contain action and comedy. Both are highly rated and popular and would probably be watched mostly by young boys.

negigo negigo says...

Both are fun super hero shows in similar worlds.

                                                                                                                   

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.

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.

KarinKim55 KarinKim55 says...

Both of them are really funny, full of action, adventure and superheroes

In Boku no Hero, it's a world where every have some superpower. But in One-Punch Man, there are just ordinary people. 

Vandoor Vandoor says...

Both have great comedy one punch in my opinion is more funny, however both are great. Good action

UrmomgayNoU UrmomgayNoU says...

These animes are very alike, as they both portray the role superheroes would have in a realistic society. One showing how an ordinary person would struggle against something much stronger than it is and the other, telling how becoming a hero isn't as easy as in a child's dream

SariPyrite SariPyrite says...

Both these shows subvert common shounen tropes and have plenty of action and humor. If you liked one of these, you'd probably enjoy the other. 

SinfulFlowerChild SinfulFlowerChild says...

They both are action packed and filled with characters that you will love! Plus if it wasnt obvious they both involve heros ;)

imhawt imhawt says...

Same creator so you'll love it and both are very good to watch especially if you got nothing to watch right now

MarloBrownHey MarloBrownHey says...

Though not the most conclusive, i feel if you like realistic, yet still quite funny characters and are not very invested in ships and more into action, this will apply to you

FriendlyDemon FriendlyDemon says...

In a world where villains wreak havoc how do humans respond? The answer is simple: superheroes! Though from different perspectives, both anime portray the struggles of the main characters and their response to threats. How should you train? How can you get stronger? What is better: solo or team? You'll have to choose for yourself after you've watched both of them!

madio20 madio20 says...

  1. Both revolve around superheros
  2. Both are really funny
  3. Both involve a master-student relationship

Debozz Debozz says...

I don't even know why I write this recommendation you probably already watched it. But in case you didn't then you must do it NOW. The concepts are pretty much the same in one punch man there are people with superpowers some of them are nice and some of them are not so much. So basically it's a superhero vs villains kind of an anime.

You probably gonna say:

-Wait? Why should I watch this if I have marvel?

Well, my dear friend, it's da easiest answer EVER. Because it's funny AF so you would think that the people with powers are born with it. And yea that is most of the case but with Saitama is not. U see Saitama is your average Dude he became a superhero just cause. He worked his ass off and in the process he became bald but in exchange, he became the most powerful man alive in 1 punch he can defeat ANYONE even the most op man alive (almost anyone but that is kind of a spoiler xD).

So why should you watch it? I think if you already watched my hero academia than i don't even know why you here xD

Mienaida Mienaida says...

its actionfilled and a bit goofy but understands social issues and ques and can impact you in many ways. Its emotional af so if youre looking foor feels aswell these are good choises. 

Rockshadow6 Rockshadow6 says...

One Punch Man is pretty much the adult humored verison of One Punch Man. It's kind of like the best abridged anime ever.

JarbonCarbon JarbonCarbon says...

Both feature superheroes and a main character who enters the hero world. The difference between the two is that the superheroes in one punch man are not so super unlike the heroes in My Hero. And while in One-Punch the main character starts off as an overpowered hero, My Hero explores the growth of the main protagonist.

YXNGCXDILLAC YXNGCXDILLAC says...

Heroes!! Both are set in universe where agencys full of heroes goes out against villains to protect their loved ones; a bunch of likeable characters and plenty of action

Oppee Oppee says...

They are both superhero themed animes and pretty similiar to each other. Both have likable main- and side characters

FalconX578 FalconX578 says...

One Punch Man and My Hero Academia, while extremely different in both art style and plot, setting and characters, both follow the idea of a world where the world is protected by superheroes. With an official system where almost anyone can become a fully-licensed hero, you get to see similarities and differences in the world that our heroes live in. Although these are two completely different shows, they still share themes about what it really means to be a hero, and both shows are enjoyable, so why not stay on the superhero train and give them both a try?

rubiinn rubiinn says...

they are much a like, just watch them both.

Musfik1999 Musfik1999 says...

A superhero-loving boy without any powers is determined to enroll in a prestigious hero academy and learn what it really means to be a hero. In a world populated with superhumans, the superhero-loving Izuku Midoriya is without power. ... The series focuses on a middle school student Izuku Midoriya, who has no superpowers.

One-Punch Man (Japanese: ワンパンマン, Hepburn: Wanpanman) is a Japanese superhero franchise created by the artist ONE. It tells the story of Saitama, a superhero who can defeat any opponent with a single punch but seeks to find a worthy foe after growing bored by a lack of challenge due to his overwhelming strength.

GhettoPilates GhettoPilates says...

Both Shounen anime with explosive animation and unique takes on the superhero genre.  I've been a little disappointed in One Punch Man given what it seemed capable of after the first episode, but as long as you're not expecting something life changing, you'll probably at least enjoy the first season.

KOKUL KOKUL says...

After all, My hero academia also has superheroes with ranks and all that STUFF with "quirk" replacing the power

And it amps up all the stuff in One punch man with bringing in Hero Highschool, tear dropping moments and splendid animation on par with One punch. 

BeybladeRequiem BeybladeRequiem says...

They both have superhero themes and elements of comedy - the main difference is that One Punch Man is basically a parody of superhero shows where the main character can win any fight, whereas My Hero Academia takes the premise more seriously and focuses more heavily on the main character improving and controlling his power.

Josle Josle says...

In both anime almost everyone has superpowers, and the main characters want to be heroes. The story is different, but the worlds are very similar.

TtAnimeGenin TtAnimeGenin says...

They are both about superheroes. They all have hero names as well as costumes, and both are pretty alike.

hydrokyu hydrokyu says...

My Hero Academia: During important fights, its already clear who is stronger but they take advantage of what they have.One-Punch Man: You know the strongest but the anime is filled with funny moments.

Haikyuu!!

Shoyo Hinata isn't a large guy, but he's got huge ambitions. Ever since seeing a small player score in a National Championship, he's been determined to become the next big thing in High School Volleyball. Unfortunately, the one time he was able to pull enough players together to form a team in junior high, they were completely trashed in their first and only match against a team led by up-and-coming setter Tobio Kageyama.Now, enrolled at the same high school where his idol once played, Shoyo's finally going to get his shot to join and play with a top team. There's just one problem: Tobio Kageyama's decided to attend the same school, and he's already considered one of the best players in the game. Can a kid out of nowhere hold his own against the King of the Court? Or could the rivalry and competition actually be the best thing for both of them?

RascaI RascaI says...

Haikyuu and My Hero Academia are shounen that feature a protagonist with big dreams and a friend who seems to be always salty. They both have great character development, progression, and similar themes. Lots of good humor and entertaining character interactions in both.

mishitty mishitty says...

well firstly ALL THE CHARACTERS IN BOTH ANIMES ARE SO ADORABLE AND LOVEABLE LIKE???? H O W T O H A T E ?? it's physically impossible, they're all so precious and you just wanna protecc the smol children

the settings and genres may be different but so many situations that happen in haikyuu, you'd think like "wow this is so BNHA of them LOL" and vice versa. the protagonists are so alike- midoriya and hinata are just smol beans who are underestimated but they just wanna make it far and tHEY DO. N YOU JUST WANNA CHEER THEM ON.

idk pls just watch. they're both absolute materpieces

phroggie phroggie says...

If you like characters and the way they connect, Haikyuu is one of my most recomended. A lot of people like My Hero Academia for the characters and shipping them too. Haikyuu is perfect for that. Even though ther's much different because of the sports anime genre vs the sci-fi fantasy genre, it gives you sort of the same feel overall. Also, if you're a sucker for underdog characters climbing the ranks, there's not a lot better you can get than these two animes.

PurplePeopleEater PurplePeopleEater says...

Both are very much underdog animes. The main characters have passion and ambition but they start out on the bottom and have to work hard to get to the top. Meanwhile, an unlikely friend who is considered much stronger than them and is even a rival at times, is also an ally. 

yourdailybinoftrash yourdailybinoftrash says...

These animes are very different and simalar in ways because of the characters they have a lot in common watch and see for yourself

MossyFlesh MossyFlesh says...

Though the two are very different, if you love the characters from one you'll most likely love the characters from the other. Protagonists are extremely similar, so are the other characters to an extent but Hinata and Midoriya the most similar to each other. 

savav savav says...

The main characters are first-year high schoolers with lofty goals. You get to see their growth as characters as they developed their specific skill set. Plus both animes have a TON of good characters. Be ready to have too many faves to count. 

KirstyLlama KirstyLlama says...

Whilst the story and themes are very different, the types of characters, their personalities and the emotions you get from both anime are quite similar. Both the protagonist and the people close to them that they work with (Midoriya and his classmates in My Hero Academia, and Hinata and his volleyball team for Haikyuu) are very passionate and determined to achieve their goals, resulting in everyone from both animes always trying their best to improve and become the best. Both protagonists are also underdogs that have to prove themselves to everyone, and are also energetic and can sometimes accidentally cause trouble haha.

No harm in giving the anime a try is there?? Both are very easy to get hooked on anyway and I'm sure that if you liked one then you'll like the other, just because of the similar vibe they give off. Enjoy!

Samuel34 Samuel34 says...

haikyuu is just that good you will like it no matter what you saw before haikyuu is just that good haikyuu is just that good

weebshea weebshea says...

Haikyuu is about a boy's volleyball team that compete to enter nationals. Meeting a bunch of very loveable characters on the way!! Haikyuu might seem boring, but it is very fun. The protagonist, Shoyo Hinata is a little red head that wants to be like his idol, The Tiny Giant.

Sybille Sybille says...

Yes, they both are shonens and that's basically the main reason. The mc aims to be the #1 at the thing they like the most: Deku wants to be the best hero and Hinata, the best volleyball player. Also they both start from the bottom and it's cool to watch them grow as the seasons go through. Also, theres some development in the other characters as well. They're both fun and easy to watch (;

yeobi yeobi says...

both feature male protagonists who are trying to achieve their dreams, for izuku becoming the #1 hero, and for shoyo being known as the little giant like his idol. they also feature very likable side characters and comedic scenes.

They're both following characters who are trying to overcome a great feat and achieve their dreams no matter what. In both shows it showcases amazing characters and it's a great anime overall.

doctorwodka doctorwodka says...

The protagonists of both Haikyuu!! and My Hero Academia are underdogs who have been given the opportunity to become something greater, and both take this chance & run with it. Character growth is very apparant in both shows, and there is rarely a boring moment as you're constantly cheering the protagonist on.

Monnie123 Monnie123 says...

The best anime it has all sort of excitement from going against 1 team to going to nationals this anime is the best 

Max4444 Max4444 says...

Both are very hype anime. Both MCs want to become something, but because of the way they were born that's harder than for most people. Still, they don't give up on their dreams and fight to become the best. Both have intense fights (the matches in Haikyuu are technically not fights, but they are just as intense as fights), both have some good comedy and both have a large cast with a lot of likable characters.

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

FullmetalDragon FullmetalDragon says...

Both Hunter X Hunter and My Hero Academia feature superhero type settings with lots of great characters. 

Hisokaslover Hisokaslover says...

Both Hunter X Hunter and My Hero Academia are very action based, Along with a fair amount of fighting scenes. But overall there both about a character over coming a lot of odds when the odds are not on there side.

Great action anime great pot compared to my hero acaademia if you like plots where you have to earn everything you get hunter x hunter is one of th best animes i would recommend

Dunks Dunks says...

Both action packed, story telling, character development is great, stick well to not making characters not too overpowered.

K1ngVince K1ngVince says...

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. 

Valentina1997 Valentina1997 says...

Both are really good. I like the fact that the main character fights to archive his dream with everything they have. Both are mostly about action and frendship

burntpopcorn burntpopcorn says...

hunter x hunter and my hero academia have similar themes. the main characters are similar in many ways as well, such as midoriya and gon both trying their hardest to reach their goals, no matter how challenging it may be. both of the main characters also make many new friends along the way. one thing in particular that i like about both of these series is how the characters are presented. in hunter x hunter, there is a lot of character development throughout the whole series. in my hero academia, the majority of the characters have some sort of relevance towards the plot, rather than just being there to make another, more significant, individual look better and they're learning new things throughout the course of the story. in both shows, the villains are very likable which is also a plus. all in all, both of these animes are definitely a couple of my personal favorites and they're totally worth watching.

arrow1350 arrow1350 says...

If you like My Hero Academia, you are sure to like Hunter x Hunter, at least the earlier arcs before things get noticeably darker, and vice versa. Both are feel-good action-packed shounen shows with an underdog lead.

Midoriya and Gon share many similar traits besides their wild green locks. They have a very similar personality in that they both have immense willpower and are incredibly clever. They use these traits to win their fights because unlike some other shonen anime leads, they're not OP. This also means that they can loose and get hurt, which adds quite a bit of tension to the fights. In regards to injuries, they both seem to care very little about their physical health and continue to put themselves in dangerous positions. 

Both shows display darker elements wherein Hunter x Hunter explored them further having more episodes under its belt. They are presented mostly through the side characters. It adds to the complexity of the shows and the world of the anime. 

BlackSummerDays BlackSummerDays says...

really well written fight scenes that play creatively with the rules of each character's powersets, also distinctive unique character designs.

AA26 AA26 says...

Both follow the journey of an initially weak protagonist who goes on a journey of getting stronger. The both face challenges along the way and each show has quirky powers. There are loveable side characters and each show gives of a similar vibe.

shawtyamar shawtyamar says...

these were some of my first anime i watched, and are both lighthearted & dark at various points throughout the show

ShiroHatake ShiroHatake says...

Both shows are shounen anime that follow a large cast of characters. Main character has a zero to hero storyline, and characters have special powers or abilities that they use to fight battles and accomplish quests. Both stories are a mix of epic battle scenes, emotional moments, and comedy.

Mubashir2006 Mubashir2006 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.

gloomboi gloomboi says...

They both have the amazing shounen main charater that everybody loves, they are sweet boys who never give up on their dream and never go back on their word or a friend.Naruto and Deku both have similar dreams and personalitys. Same as Sasuke= Kacchan, Sakura= uraraka. It is basically the same story in a diffrent AU with diffrent vocabulary. Lets just hope deku dosent have a shit of a son also OOF

MarloBrownHey MarloBrownHey says...

Bakugou is a literally Naruto but kinda gay and mad 24/7

if you are watching more for the characters and development and such, then both shows will apply to you

KelvieKun KelvieKun says...

These two anime shows do have similar plot and characters relating to each other. I know that the creator of BNHA loves Naruto it's because he had an idea to make his own characters which are inspired by Kishimoto's. Naruto takes place in a ninja world while BNHA takes place in Earth where superheroes exist like they do in Western comic books like Marvel or DC. I recently preferred BNHA more than Naruto because of its character designs and its environment.

paudkny10 paudkny10 says...

Both are very good dhonens that mostly everyone loves and knows.

Both have a protagonist that his dream it's nearly impossible but in the end, they will be unstoppable

Kamisama97 Kamisama97 says...

because they both have an amazing storyline, as well as great character development, great characters, amazing action, power-hungry antagonists and suspenseful battles!

Fierceflower Fierceflower says...

Both are tellings of stories of outcasted people (one because they have no power and the other of harboring a spirit) but through hard work and dedication, they find their way to power and become the greatest like no one ever was.

SeriousAnimeAddict SeriousAnimeAddict says...

The overall main character (Midoriya) is like naruto in the way that he wants to improve and be able to save those close to them.  Naruto is centered around, well, Naruto who wants to become Hokage and be able to protect those close to him. In the same way, Midoryia wants to become the greatest hero and be able to protect everyone.

DATTIA96 DATTIA96 says...

From Zero to Hero is the basic theme of both anime.

Both shows have the underdog who crawls his way up to the top you can't help but live off their hope and determination.

PLUS! the suppoerting cast are equally amazing. you'll never get enough of all the side/minor characters that sometimes you'll be rooting for them more than the main/major ones.

PapizOffz PapizOffz says...

Those Anime seems to be similar. Naruto is an older, more realistic, serious, dark version of My Hero Academia. If you like characters from Naruto, you'll love those from MHA. (Sasuke and Todoroki have same voice actor) Well my two favourite Animes (not speaking of HxH and CB), you'll be happy while watching em

ShiroHatake ShiroHatake says...

Both shows are shounen anime that follow a large cast of characters. Main character has a zero to hero storyline, and characters have special powers or abilities that they use to fight battles and accomplish quests. Both stories are a mix of epic battle scenes, emotional moments, comedy, and some romance. 

lokud lokud says...

Its obvious that BNHA is highly inspired by other shonen show, mostly by Naruto. Arcs are similar in some ways, some characters, but its is not just copied, it brings inovation to shounen genre

Both of the main characters in my hero academia and naruto have been through hardships and they both started weak, working their way to become stronger. Both anime have a good moral and they are both similar themed. If you enjoy one of them, I think you definitely enjoy the other.

Between My Hero Academia and Demon Slayer, both shows follow a young boy struggling to become strong as they learn to fight in an effort to save lives. Whether it's becoming a hero or surviving as a demon slayer, both shows are filled with action, comedy, and a large journey that shows the growth of characters we come to appreciate.

amagic4554 amagic4554 says...

Both are similar, and main characters have many similarities I can't stress enough how amazing both series are. However, be warned that Demon Slayer is a lot more graphic than My Hero Academia. Both contian violence, but the violence in Demon Slayer is a lot more, open and direct. Demon Slyaer is also sadder, in my opinion. It contains a lot more 'mature' themes. not to say My Hero Academia doesn't contain mature themes, it most definatly does have undertones of it. The themes are just a lot more blatent in Deom Slayer. Regardless, you should watch both of these animes at least once, They are Amazing!!

starwberry0otaku starwberry0otaku says...

É um anime de ação bem legal e engraçado, que contem personagens fofos, fortes, engraçados e mesmo eu falando que é um pouco enhgraçado não deixa de ser um anime serio e com um grande objetivo!

I love both anime, and I think people who enjoy one will enjoy the other

-Both are set in a school, where students are taught unconventionally

-Both classes taught by a unique teacher with abilities (who teaches them to fight)

-In one, students are trained to be assassins, in the other they are trained to use their superpowers

-Both have a main young teen male protagonist who seems weak at first, but becomes very strong-There is comedy to both, but they still have a lot of interesting storylines

Recommend trying either if you liked the other, want beginner anime, like superhero movies/shows, like strong young teenage characters

TheLegoSensei TheLegoSensei says...

they are both creative, action-packed anime with good stories that keep you wanting to see more. Assassination has more depth to it though, while My Hero is more about the protagonist's determination.

RandomOtaku2004 RandomOtaku2004 says...

Classroom environments, with amazing characters in both of these anime. Though with Assassination Classroom the objective is to kill the teacher, in My Hero Academia, it's to become the teacher, though, in both anime, the student's grow into amazing people, great comedic action too.

knoxa17 knoxa17 says...

If you enjoyed either My Hero or Assassination Classroom, you might like the other because both series have similar humour styles, a wide and diverse cast of teens, and action mixed with emotional drama. 

SenseiYaoiLife01 SenseiYaoiLife01 says...

Well since in my hero academia there are characters that ban together even tho each student is different from one another the characters fight togther to save the world and each other from villians with a goal in mind which is somewhat also similar to the characters in the anime assissination classroom they gained friendships and courage to battle the unknown.

phroggie phroggie says...

The plot lines keep you at the edge of your seats while at the same time satisfying the watcher. Both plots have interesting chracters with interesting backstories and you can't help but wonder what comes next.

PurplePeopleEater PurplePeopleEater says...

The plots definitely have some similarities. A group of students, each with their own unique strengths, together in a school setting being trained to do something extrodinary. Both schools are one of the best and have pros in the field teaching the class. Both classes focus on imporving the individual and showing them how to use their stregnths and work together. Both also focus on classes that are out of the ordinary from the rest of the classes.

The main characters are also quite similar. They are analytical and take a lot of notes but they are also underdogs sort of. Niether starts out exceptionally strong. Their notes and thoughtfulness in certain situations give them some advantage but they certainly aren't at the top.

And the teachers and other students also share some similarities. 

There's also a good mix of light and dark topics in both including current events and character backstories. 

Black Clover

Black Clover

In a world where magic is everything, Asta and Yuno are both found abandoned at a church on the same day. While Yuno is gifted with exceptional magical powers, Asta is the only one in this world without any. At the age of fifteen, both receive grimoires, magic books that amplify their holder’s magic. Asta’s is a rare Grimoire of Anti-Magic that negates and repels his opponent’s spells. Being opposite but good rivals, Yuno and Asta are ready for the hardest of challenges to achieve their common dream: to be the Wizard King. Giving up is never an option!

In both animes main character is non-gifted personin magical world. both rivals are especialy gifted ones.

wyknot wyknot says...

There are a few similarities between the shows, though there are also differences. In Black Clover, the MC is an orphan, unlike Izuku, who was raised in the church where he was found alongside another boy of the same age at infanthood. In the world of Black Clover, everyone has magic, and magic is everything. However, Asta, the MC, is the only person in the entire kingdom, possibly the world, with no magic to speak of what so ever. He has trained his body every of the fifteen years he's been alive so that he can fulfill his dream of becoming a magic knight, the protectors of the realm, and becoming Wizard King, the most powerful wizard in the kingdom. Ring any bells? Whats more, the boy who was discovered with Asta by the church is a boy named Yuno who also aspires to become the Wizard King, and has been gifted with incredibly powerful magic. Once a year, ever 15-year-old in the kingdom is given a grimoire, a magical book that records spells and enhances the user's magical powers. Asta's rival, Yuno, is given an incredibly rare, powerful, and legendary grimoire while Asta, hoping that his grimoire will finally allow him to use magic is instead gifted with a strange and unknown power that carries him through the Magic Nights Exams and into knighthood. However, his adventures have only just begone and trouble is stirring deep within the Kingdom. To me, this show is both exremely similar to MHA, and yet unique as well.

oZEROo oZEROo says...

I can see a strong parallel between these two shows. Both starts off with teenage boys who have no powers. Both of these boys have goals that at first seem unachievable. Then they both miraculously obtain an ability that sets them apart from everyone else. There are also other minor details such as rivaly between childhood friends and they both have entrance examinations. Also, Izuku and Asta both possess great determination. Both of them do not let their weaknesses hold them back. They continue to fight despite the fact that the odds are against them.

youngDemon youngDemon says...

Both stories are contemperary examples of the classic shonen formula, a Kid with asperations to be something start as nothing and gain sudden skills to be who the aspire to become. facing challenges, making friends and finding mentors allow this boys to grow and develop thier skills. high-octane Action battles and interesting powers create a vast world toact as a backdrop to lives of thes boys.

KarKrab KarKrab says...

Like My Hero Academia, Black Clover also has a main character who starts off with no magic. Later though, Asta (like Midorya) receives magic.

Both of these characters have been hurt and underlooked throughout their childhood for not having magic, like the majority of the population should.

Midorya and Asta along with other characters from each show all strive to be the Wizard King// Number 1 hero.

These are both really good animes, and I recommend that you watch the other if you haven't.

kels31717 kels31717 says...

Both animes are about a boy growing up constantly being bullied or judged. In spite of that, they grew using they're own determination. Eventually, they both come across a life-changing situation in their live's that cause them to become even stronger and more powerful.

opughku opughku says...

The two are very similar with each of the protagonists Asta and Izuku not having some abiliy that most of the population has and they gain that ability from a unheard way ( Izuku being All mights hair Asta being the 5 leaf grimoire) and finding a way to get somthing that will help them along the way to achive their goal (Asta being apart of the magic knights Izuku getting into U.A) with sombodys help ( Asta being Captain Yami Izuku being All Might) they also have a childhood friend that has the same or a smilar goal to them ( Asta being Yuno and Izuku being Bakugo) another key similarity is that the protaganists bolth have good friends helping them along the way

Westerburglar Westerburglar says...

They both feature (main) characters who would do anything to reach their goal. Despite having their fair share of disadvantages (Asta who cant use magic and isnt a noble and Izuku who was born without a quirk), they work towards what they believe in and will never give up. 

smthGood smthGood says...

Both the protagonist of My Hero Academia and Black Clover are somewhat the same in my point of view.

Midoriya was born quirkless and Asta was born without magic. Both of the protagonists are hard workers and want to become the strong to protect others. They dont give up easily and made amazing friends on their journey.

I dont know why most people hate on these two anime/manga but that doesn't matter if you like it. Both series are amazing and i love them.

Tyler12970 Tyler12970 says...

Both have up-and-coming main characters that fit in the "Shonen" genre. Both serve the same purpose. The differences are that Deku tends to overthink while Asta punches first and asks questions later.

Josle Josle says...

Both anime have a useless protagonist with an impossible dream from where they are. Then shit gets loose and the protagonists get the super overpowered power they cant control, but with their new power the goal doesnt seem that impossible. All in all both are very good animes with lots of action and their unique story. I highly recommend both of them

In both Assassination Classroom and My Hero Academia both classes face being targeted and challenged by all the other classes in their school and the students have to rise above those challenges in order to shine. 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.

TheOtakuPrincess TheOtakuPrincess says...

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.

irisglider irisglider says...

Both anime have a similar vibe; wanting to become a hero/assassin and improving one's abilities. The protagonists are also similar in how determined and earnest they are (especially how they both watch others' fights and take notes analysing their strengths and weaknesses). The "hero" character is slightly different initially, since one (MHA) is shown as admirable and the other is shown as a target to be killed. However, after a few episodes of Assassination Classroom, Koro Sensei is established more as a guide, like All Might in MHA. 

indyKD indyKD says...

watched both of them and they have the same vibe. im recomend both of them but boku no hero is littel better on my opinion.

Maddiemouse Maddiemouse says...

The characters in Assassination Classroom aren’t superheroes—they’re normal middle school students who are struggling not to fail in school. However, they’ve been tasked with assassinating a yellow octopus-like creature who swears to destroy the earth in one year. This creature, later named Kuro-sensei, becomes their homeroom teacher and helps them improve their grades while teaching them how to assassinate him. It sounds weird, but you have to give it a try. It’s hilarious, teaches life lessons, and really tugs at your heartstrings sometimes. Plus Kuro-sensei is kind of like All Might in that he really inspires his students.
