I think naruto is kind of similar to DBZ. Its kind of similar because

1. The rivalry of Sasuke and Naruto is similar to Vegeta and Goku
2. the color clothes of sasuke and vegeta and naruto and goke are similar
3. naruto has blond hair just liek super saiyan
4. naruto was shunned but became stronger and started to gain a reputation as Goku was thrown out of the saiyan race and into the Earth and he also gained a reputation their as he was shunned by the saiyans
5. the author of naruto was a DBZ fan (i think)

feel free to tell me im wrong but please back it up with facts thanks

GTO and Gokusen. Yes they're both about two unusual teachers (with slightly violent backgrounds) teaching in a school, but both the main characters and the supporting characters are very different.

There are lots of combinations, but off the top of my head I'll say Naruto and One Piece.

I mean there's even a Naruto vs. One Piece thread on this site and I'm sure on many others. They're both the two most popular ongoing series in Japan right now and are heavily inspired by Dragonball. They both follow the shonen action/adventure formula really closely and have several things in common, while at the same time they take the genre in creative and grand directions.

I've heard people compare Eva and Dual! which doesn't make sense in my mind at all. I mean they both have a slightly wimpy main char, and a tsudere and mute side chars but thats about it.

Naruto and Bleach to me have like nothing in common except that I hear the word 'jutsu' a bunch of times in both. That and they both follow the same typical Shonen storyarch types.

one that i know is Zero no Tsukaima and Shakugan no Shana dont you think the characters i.e Saito/Yuji and Louise/Shana are so much alike and same with the story.... Loiuse started to like Saito same goes for Shana even though Yuji hasnt said anything yet...


OK this one is more like it for animes to compare to each other in some senses because they come from the same creator AND the chracters you pointed out are done by the same voice actors.

Yes comparisons are much odder without either shared canon or talent. The latter occurs more often but again it's best if the shows are connected in canon to make good comparisons to the series in topic, so to avoid a lot of the headaches that others have mentioned here.

*SPOILERS AHEAD*



The former is harder to figure out between series. Someone mentioned Duel and I recall my friend saying the mech from that series is also in another one but the name eludes me at the moment. CLAMP series Angelic Layer and Chobits share the same canon and are comparable as (from Wikipedia's words) "Icchan is the late husband of Chitose Hibiya and the base founder of the persocons in the hit manga Chobits. He made two special persocoms for his wife to be their children, since she could not have children herself. They were named Freya and Elda, later known as Chi. The cause of his death in Chobits was never fully explained."

Some try to make some connections between Negima and Love Hina, which is true too to some extent. The sword fighting style of Setsuna is exactly the same one as Motoko's. Other connections are tougher, such as whether Mei Sakura in the Negima manga is Naru's cousin who was mentioned as being on the phone in one of the last anime episodes for Love Hina. Also some argue Motoko and her sister were the ones who brought Setsuna to Konoka's temple, but again the picture this is possibly seen in the manga is blurred and Akamatsu hasn't confirmed it either.

It's an interesting thing we do for all media to compare series to each other so long as we keep it as a point for conversation and not flame wars. So play nice!
