Here is everything you need to know about the best anime to watch if you love Naruto.
King Of Nabari
Nabari no Ou is a ninja anime set in the modern era that features quite a unique roster of characters. From his teacher, Miharu learns that he inherited a powerful secret art that many ninja clans want to possess.
Nabari no Ou’s ninja-themed concepts are fairly run-of-the-mill, although they do lead to a couple of fun fights. The show’s strongest component is its characterization, particularly the presentation of Yoite and Miharu.

In Blue Exorcist, twins Rin and Yukio Okumura learn that they are the sons of Satan. It gives them traits of both humans and demons. After witnessing the death of their surrogate father, Rin uses the demon-slaying sword Kurikara and releases the full extent of his demonic heritage. Vowing to stop demons from hurting others.
Much to his surprise, Rin discovers that Yukio isn’t just an Exorcist by secret. He is also veteran enough to become his teacher. Such begins Rin’s journey to accepting his demonic heritage but also maintaining his humanity despite seeing the horrors of the demons he’s fighting.
One Piece is THE battle shonen story of the last two decades. Eiichiro Oda’s ambitious manga chronicles Monkey D. Luffy’s journey to become the Pirate King. Naturally, a pirate-themed adventure would not feel complete without a crew and a ship, prompting Luffy to create the Straw Hats.
Although cut from the same cloth, One Piece and Naruto shine in different areas. The former is far more concerned with crafting and maintaining a sense of adventure than delivering non-stop action.
Bleach follows the adventures of Ichigo Kurosaki as he protects the world from supernatural threats. Ichigo is thrust into the affairs of Soul Society as he takes on the role of a Substitute Shinigami.
At first, the calm protagonist is tasked to eliminate Hollows and preserve the balance between the worlds of the living and the dead. Unfortunately for Ichigo, his involvement will soon attract the attention of unsavory powers in Soul Society.

Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku
Hell’s Paradise largely succeeded in living up to its pre-debut hype. Based on Yuji Kaku’s manga, the story takes place on a surreal and dangerous island. Ordered by the Shogunate to find the Elixir of Life, criminals are sent to the island to engage in what is essentially a rat race.
While boasting an expansive cast, Hell’s Paradise mainly centers around Gabimaru. Who is a ninja with a long history of kills, and Sagiri, an executioner riddled with doubts. It targets an older audience than Naruto, something reflected by its gory battles and willingness to tackle mature and even spiritual themes.
