My Hero Academia was released on April 3, 2016. The anime's main focus is on heroes who are fighting and sacrificing themselves for world peace against various villains with the help of powers known as quirks. At first, it may seem like your typical shōnen anime, but this show breaks the mold as it goes much deeper into many of the characters from low-tier Heroes to top-tier Villans making it one of the greatest new generation anime.

The main character of this anime is broccoli or Green Naruto, named Izuku Midoriya. But the show story doesn't revolve around him only, as the anime progresses we get to see many interesting stories of many characters like the famous villain, Overhaul, or one of the most powerful heroes, Endeavor, and his Son Shoto.

We are even introduced to the sad backstory of the main villain, Tomura Shigaraki, and get to see how his character develops from a low-level single-minded villain to top tier titan. This is an ongoing anime with 5 seasons, 3 movies, and 7 OVA's, and while it may seem like a lot, the pacing makes you crave more and more episodes. From the story, and lovable characters as well as great visuals and mind-blowing fighting scenes, you'll be sure to enjoy this anime a lot.


2. Jujutsu Kaisen

If you just started anime recently, then you might know or have already seen Jujutsu Kaisen. This show was an instant hit when episode one aired back in the Fall of 2020. It consists of 24 episodes and a movie that just got released recently, it's season 2 is set to air sometime in 2023.

Well, there are not one but many similarities between Jujutsu Kaisen and Naruto, for one, both of these shows consist of teams of three students for missions and stuff, both of these animes have one of the greatest anime fight scenes, both of these shows have great Opening and Ending Theme song, both of these shows have a handsome and powerful teacher who wears a cloth over his face, with Kakashi in Naruto and Gojo-sensei who is the most powerful character in the entire show and lastly for me doesn't the name Jujutsu consist of Jutsu which is a word we all learned from Naruto? In Naruto, there's an evil organization named Akatsuki while here the evil organization is basically evil spirits who the Jujutsu sorcerors exorcise on which the whole story revolves.

This is a must-watch anime because the action and dark story of the anime is just out of this world. As the new season is right around the corner, everyone should watch this anime.


3. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba

This is a comparatively new anime in the community, but it exploded in popularity after its release. The show took everyone by surprise from episode one as it erupted in the community with one of the greatest opening episodes.

Embark on a journey with Kamado Tanjiro whose only goal is to defeat the demon lord Muzan and to change his beloved sister Kamado Nezuko back to a human. As the story unfolds, he faces many strong demons along the way and overcomes them with the help of his newfound friends Zenistsu Agatsuma(Pikachu) and Hashibira Inosuke. You'll enjoy this anime as the fight scenes are top-notch, and the animation is mind-blowing and so fast-paced that you won't even have time to blink.

As a Naruto fan, I found this anime very interesting and enjoyable to watch, as the characters are fun and lovable and have great comedic moments throughout the show. While the story may be generic, but the way it is presented to us blew everyone's mind. I recommend all Naruto fans to watch this as it was one of the best anime of 2019 and the movie Mugen Train changed the perspective of many people worldwide. It set the bar high for upcoming anime movies as it managed to gross over $506.5 million at the worldwide box office, making it the highest-grossing film of 2020. Thus, I encourage every Naruto fan to put Demon Slayer on their watch list.


4.Hunter x Hunter

Hunter x Hunter got its anime adaption on October 6th, 1999, and it released a total of 62 episodes and later rebooted on October 2, 2011, with a total of 148 episodes. This show was the top-grossing anime of its time, and it's still very famous and loved by fans worldwide.

Hunxter x Hunter introduced us to hunters, people who will go on dangerous missions for money and fame. One of these hunters is our lovable cinnamon bun, Gon Freecss, but he's a cinnamon bun who can kill, he joins the hunter association to become the strongest hunter and also to find his douchebag of a father. Gon and Naruto have many similarities, like both don't have a mother and many more. This is a much-watch anime for everyone, as not only does it have great fighting scenes, it also has a unique storyline with many characters and their own stories. This anime also contains one of the most watched and epic arcs in the entire anime history. It's a small anime as you just need to watch only the 2011 version, and I would highly recommend adding this anime to your checklist because you will want more of this show after you're done.


5.Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood

Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood follows the story of two brothers, Edward Elric and Alphonse Elric. In Naruto, we get to see various ninjas perform jutsu while in FMA there's no Jutsu but Alchemy which does things almost like a jutsu.

The two brothers tried to reincarnate their mother from the grave, but as there was no reincarnation jutsu in this world, things get out of hand and both brothers lose something. Edward lost a right arm and left foot, while Alphonse lost his entire physical body. Even after losing so much, Edward never lost hope, and his strength and resolve are comparable to Naruto. Both brothers travel around the world to find a way to get Alphonse's body back.

This anime is, without a doubt, a masterpiece, even though it has only 64 episodes in total. You'll be sure to enjoy this wonderful anime as its plot unfolds in ways you won't see coming, with moments in which you'll question that this shouldn't have happened and characters which you would adore so much and obviously some of them which you just want dead. From an extraordinary start to an overwhelmingly emotional ending, this anime will give you goosebumps and curiosity till the end.


6.Dr. Stone

Alright now, let's take a moment to pause from all the action anime and look at some other genre of anime that a Naruto fan would like. The plot of this anime is straightforward yet exhilarating, as Naruto wants to save his entire village from different villains while Senku who's the main character of this show wants to save the entire world from human extinction.

The anime starts off with an event that turns the entire human population of the world into stone and after many years, Senku was depetrified. We see how, with the help of science, Senku Ishigami starts a new civilization. This anime is again fun to watch as the things Senku does in the anime are very much possible in the real world and this makes the anime even more engaging. This is an out-of-the-box anime concept that I recommend everyone to watch because it has everything from a great plot to great inventions and fun, lovable characters.


7.Dragon Ball Franchise

Dragon Ball Z and Naruto are two sides of the same coin. And we all grew up watching at least three orange-colored characters named Naruto the number one unpredictable ninja, the overly powerful fire lizard which we all love Charizard, and our stupid hero Goku or Kakarot who love wearing only orange because it brings out his stupid face.

But those of you who still living under a rock and never watched or heard of the Dragon Ball franchise, well you definitely take the time out to watch this classic show. As it's without a doubt one of the most famous anime worldwide and for good reasons.

Dragon Ball was one of the earliest action anime which focused heavily on epic fights of a grand scale, and planted the seeds of all future action anime to follow in its footsteps. With its amazingly fighting scenes, you will be glued to the screen and be awestruck. With the new addition to the franchise, Dragon Ball super which broke the internet in 2018 as Goku's new form was introduced, even people who don't watch anime were aware of this as it crashed Twitter. But it wasn't the first time Dragon Ball Z made fans go crazy, it happened way before when Goku first transformed into a legendary Super Sayan. As a Naruto fan, you will enjoy watching this anime a lot, I am quite sure after you're done with this series you'll be screaming Kamehameha with your friend.
