What shows can you recommend that are similar maybe in style, writing or execution to Hunter X Hunter? I like how it starts very light hearted and then just becomes so much more mature as it goes along.. (I finished it by the way)

The other HunterxHunter?

jk

My Hero Academia so far seems to fit the mold. I guess Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z as well. It is shounen, so pretty much most shounen series fit this really.

Unfortunately not the anime, but the manga of Mahou Sensei Negima gets really good as far as shonen battles go after the initial arc. Its kind of like if you made HxH into a harem though. So while it has good villains, and a great shonen plot, there are also a lot of ecchi moments and romcom. Mind you though, only the magna, the anime which covers the first arc isn't nearly as good as the later arcs in the magna which are not animated.

As far as anime go, I'm not too sure. Portions of Naruto hold up well. DGrayman is really good too. Maybe Soul Eater. HxH is kind of unique but there are some shonen out there that are almost as good.

Level E and Yu Yu Hakusho for obvious reasons. I'd also say JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and the early parts of Naruto.

If we're talking about shows that are as good as HxH, then these are the ones I think are the closest:

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
Naruto (not Shippuden, just Naruto, the strategy in the earlier parts of the franchise is similar to the strategy for the battles in HxH)
Yu Yu Hakusho
Rurouni Kenshin
