Good Animes Like Naruto/Naruto Shippudden - Anime Recommendations

Updated on January 13, 2014

Naruto/Naruto Shippudden

With Naruto Shippudden almost reaching the end of its story, I am going to recommend some other animes like Naruto. I will not include Bleach and One Piece as they are very popular and most people have already watched it.

Animes Like Naruto with Female Fighter Focus

I am going to introduce to you some anime that has more female fighters unlike Naruto, which features less powerful female types.

Fate/Zero was released after Fate/Stay Night, but it is the prequel of Fate/Stay Night. Fate/Zero takes place 10 years before the events of Fate/Stay Night.

Claymore takes place in medieval times, where beasts known as Yoma terrorize humans. They are flesh eating creatures that can shape-shift into humans. A secret organization decided to breed Yomas with humans to create warriors that could protect humans from Yomas for a fee. The result of the breeding are called "Claymores". They are women that carry claymore as their weapon. Clare, the main protagonist of the anime, is out to protect villagers from Yomas. More importantly, she would like to avenge her favorite warrior Theresa...

This anime is rather bloody and packs a lot of high intensity fights, which is fantastic. However, if you are not the kind that can watch frequent blood spills, then this might not be for you.

Samurai Girl Real Bout High School

Ryoko Mitsuragi, the main protagonist, is known as the "Samurai Girl. In a school that actually grades students based on their fighting skills, Ryoko is Daimon High's reigning "K-Fight champion. Any sort of disagreements are usually sorted out by fighting each other.

Although it is a short anime, it is quite good It is not often mentioned among popular anime due to its lack of promotion.

Flame of Recca

Flame of Recca's story revolves around a boy named Recca Hanabishi. He prides himself to be a ninja and pledges loyalty to anyone who could defeat him. He eventually meets a kind girl called Yanagi Sakoshita. She was able to heal any wound or injury. Recca then realizes that he can manipulate flames to his advantage. Eventually, he found out that he was the son of a Hokage. Their ninja clan was destroyed by Oda Nobunaga 400 years before the start of the series...

This anime is my personal favorite. It has action packed fight scenes and a tournament that reminds me of Naruto's Chuunin exam.

Two supernatural boys called Ginji Amano and Ban Mido owns a freelance repossession service that recovers any lost or stolen items with "100% success rate". They offer their services from little trivial things to misplaced parts of atomic bombs.

These two boys have a very mysterious background, but they set to adventure into Limitless Fortress to rescue a kidnapped girl and also the possibility of meeting Ginji's mother.

Their fight scenes are excellent as well. I thoroughly enjoyed them.
