Top 7 Anime like Naruto

Fullmetal  Alchemist

Despite its action-packed premise, Fullmetal Alchemist is one of the most compelling tales of perseverance and sacrifice ever to grace anime.

Set in a world where alchemy has become an exact science,  brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric paid a hefty price trying to revive their mother with forbidden human transmutation.  Now adults, Ed and Al travel the world in search of the Philosopher’s Stone to right their wrongs.

Shaman King

Shaman King takes place in a world where Shamans connect the real world and the afterlife. Through bonds with spirits, a Shaman can obtain powerful abilities.

However, contacting the Great Spirit can give a Shaman enough power to reshape the world in their image.  To do this, Shamans participate in the Shaman Fight, a tournament that takes place once every 500 years. Unlike Naruto, Shaman King protagonist Yoh Asakura is equal parts quiet and meek. However, Yoh is always prepared to defend his friends with the help of Amidamaru, his warrior spirit. 

Soul Eater takes viewers to the afterlife, where the Death Weapon Meister Academy trains students to hunt the souls of evil humans, Witches, and other supernatural entities. 

Soul Eater

Headed by Death himself, the DWMA is composed of two-person teams consisting of a Demon Weapon, or a human that can transform into a weapon, and a Meister who wields them. In the story, Maka Albarn and Soul Eater team up with fellow students to stop the ever-present threat of Witches.  The Witch Medusa, in particular, appears to have a sinister plot that will upend the status quo of the afterlife at large.

Claymore is set on a medieval island infested by the monstrous Yoma. To fight these threats, the mysterious Organization employs female warriors called Claymores.


Named after their signature claymore weapon and silver eyes, Claymores use their half-Yoma physiology to gain power and strength equal to the monsters they face. In this story, Claymore No. 47 Clare ends up embroiled in a conspiracy that would have her question the very Organization she grew up in.  Unlike the more cheerful Naruto, Claymore has a darker and more realistic take on the horrors of life in a world plagued by monsters.
