In this article, we will show some anime that are similar to Naruto. Some have Ninjas, others have powers, are big and famous, have a long journey, charismatic characters and epic fights.

Recalling that Naruto received other adaptations such as Naruto Shippuden and Boruto, in addition to some films and games of the franchise. There are more than 500 episodes in all, one of greatest anime of all time.

Hunter x Hunter - Hunters x Ninjas

MadHouse - 2011 - 148 episodes - MAL score: 9.11

Hunter x Hunter is my anime shonen favorite, with a complete and unique universe. The anime has two versions, the most recent with 148 episodes and adapting the best arcs of the manga, made by the incredible MadHouse.

The anime shows Gon and his new friends during this rigorous examination that leads to the death and despair of many participants. The test is done to get Hunter's license.

Hunter are hunters who have perks around the world, as if they have an unlimited passport and a river of opportunities and tools. Becoming a Hunter is not an easy mission, in fact only the best can do it.

Gon wants to become a Hunter to find his father. After the exam, the anime spans different complex arcs full of action and things we didn't imagine during the simple Hunter exam.

One Piece - Pirates x Ninjas

Toei Animation - 1999 + 800 episodes and in release - MAL score: 8.57

One Piece and another shonen super popular, if not the most popular with its more than 800 episodes that discourages many from watching it. While Naruto talks about Ninjas, One Piece has a pirate theme.

Luffy is very similar to Naruto, both are starved, carefree and smart. In addition to the similarity in personality, both continuously improve their skills and have immense power.

Luffy's straw hat pirates are far more fun and just as dangerous as the characters in Naruto. What do you think of giving the pirate king a chance? Many who fall in love, consider it even better than Naruto.

Full Metal Alchemist - Alchemists x Ninjas

Bones - 2009 - 64 episodes - MAL score: 9.25

While Naruto has Ninjas, in Fullmetal Alchemist we have Alchemists who have skills in transforming one subject into another. This is one of my favorite anime, the first anime I watched. It has two versions, an old one and a new one that follows the manga correctly.

The protagonist Edward loses his arm and his brother when trying to resurrect his mother. He seals his brother Alphonse's soul in an Armor. Both join the army in order to research and find the philosopher's stone.

In the midst of this comes a lot of mystery, epic battles, charismatic characters and a perfect combination of action, comedy and romance. Without a doubt, everyone who watched Naruto will love Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.

Detective Conan - Detectives x Ninjas

TMS - Since 1996 in release - more than 900 episodes - MAL score: 8.24

To differentiate the list a little, I will recommend another anime that I really like, one of my top 10 that even my mom watches. It is Detective Conan, one of the most famous anime in Japan, but unknown in the West.

Anime is old and has ancient traits, so it displeases many and makes it unpopular in the West. Still, Detective Conan is an intelligent anime that closely resembles Sherlock, CSI and other investigative series.

He is a high school detective who ends up being forced by a black organization to consume a drug that turns him into a child. Both the main plot and the cases in each episode are interesting.

Fairy Tail - Magi x Ninjas

Fairy Tail is another popular anime where we even wrote an article about anime similar to Fairy Tail. These are charismatic characters, long bows full of action, very similar to Naruto.

The anime takes place in the world of Fiore, where magic is a fundamental part of everyday life. Countless magical guilds are at the center of all magical activities.

These guilds serve as places for magicians to come together and accept job applications. Among all, Fairy Tail stands out from the rest as a place of strength, spirit and family.

Bleach is an Anime that tells the story of a fifteen-year-old boy, Kurosaki Ichigo. He is not like ordinary boys his age, he has the ability to see ghosts and spirits, as well as communicate with them.

Ichigo had a lot of spiritual energy, which he didn't know, until he met Kuchiki Rukia (Uma Shinigami). The Shinigami have three main goals, to send souls to the spirit society or to hell, to defeat and purify Hollows, and to balance and regulate the Number of souls in each world.

This is another pillar shonen famous that got a little lost in the course, had many hiatuses and delays. Still it is a very popular anime and recommended for Shonen fans. One of the few long anime in this generation of short Anime.

Boku no Hero Academia - Heroes x Ninjas

Bones - 2016 - more than 4 seasons - MAL score: 8.36

Boku No Hero Academia is another very popular anime that has many seasons and a character growth similar to Naruto. In this 80% universe of people have powers, some become heroes.

This anime is about a school of heroes, where the main protagonist called Deku, feels empty because he has no special skills. Luckily the greatest Heroes of all, choose him as his successor and pass on his power.

The anime is great, captivating, has an interesting soundtrack and animation. Its beginning is a little slow, deaths hardly happen, the anime also focuses on several secondary characters instead of just the hero.

  1. Hello, once again I'm loving a post from you every day! !! I would like you to take away a curiosity that I have and I see a lot in MANGAs in which the characters when they go through some conflict either because they are sad or embarrassed or worried and even during a conversation they always crouch and always squatting in all the situations I mentioned earlier? ?????? But they never sit on the floor and get up without putting their hands on the floor ???? and it doesn't matter the place I've read sleeves where they squat is at school, college at home or even on the street. it is common and natural to do this!!! I would like to know why they do this and in real life they do too???
    E mais uma curiosidade pode parecer infantil na minha parte mais curiosidade é curiosidade, já vi documentário falando da independência das crianças japonesas deste de pequenos mesmo já sabem se virar sem ajuda de adultos e vão sozinhos para a escola (pequenos mesmo) bem maduros para a idade. Mas nos mangas eu já li e foram vários, as crianças de 6 anos numa maturidade e age e comporta como adultos mesmo estando sozinho em casa e entendendo coisas de adulto como relacionamento entre dois casais até financeiro da família., por exemplo , desculpe se parece ingenuidade da minha parte esta última pergunta eu sei que é so uma história , mas mesmo assim eles descrevem nos mangas e animes o cotidiano verdadeiro dos japoneses!!!
    Se poderem me responder as duas perguntas ficarem muito grata !!!!!

    And one more curiosity may seem childish in my most curiosity part é curiosity, já I saw a document talking about the independence of Japanese children since they were little. they know how to get by without the help of adults and go to school alone (really small) very mature for their age. But in the sleeves I've already I read and there were several, 6 year olds at maturity and act and behave like adults even though they are alone at home and understand adult things like a relationship between two couples. family finances., for example, sorry if it seems naive on my part this úlast question i know thaté just a story, but even so they describe in manga and anime the true daily life of japanese!!!
    Se poderem me responder as duas perguntas ficarem muito grata !!!!!
