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!

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!

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

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

There's alot of parralles between Simon and Izuku, who have a newfound OP power that they have to learn how to control correctly. They both have a mentor who inspires them to go to unbeliable heights. While doing so they also have try and overcome their social anxieties to fit into a whole new community of people, and fight using their analytical abilities along with their newfound power.

Theotakusyko Theotakusyko says

I just get the vibes from My Hero Academia and Gurren Lagann at the same time whether I'm watching Academia or Gurren Lagann I always feel that Izuku and Simon are in the same world. 

All Might reminds me of Kamina for example and the art style look similar to me.

They are awesome and are worth recommending and watching.

Aerythrin Aerythrin says

The art styles are reminiscent of one another. Both anime focus on one boy who gains power somehow and tries to save the world. MHA takes place in a more school-based environment, though, and TTGL takes place in a completely new world.
