Hey, guys welcome back to Kaizetsu.com. Today we are going to provide you the list of Anime which are very similar to anime named One Piece.
Short introduction to One Piece
Long ago the infamous Gol D. Roger was the strongest and most powerful pirate on the seas. As he was about to be executed he revealed that he hid all of his wealth, including the legendary treasure known as One Piece, on an island at the end of the Grand Line – a treacherous and truly unpredictable sea. Monkey D. Luffy is a spirited, energetic and somewhat dim-witted young man with a very big dream: to find One Piece and become the Pirate King! However Luffy is no ordinary boy, as when he was younger he ate one of the Devil’s Fruits and gained its power to become a Rubber Man. Now in this grand age of pirates Luffy sets out to gather a crew and sail to the most dangerous sea in the world so that he can fulfill his dream… and maybe even his appetite!
10. Jing: King of Bandits
Description: Join the king of thieves Jing and his plumed partner Kir as they seek out the greatest treasures in the world – and steal them. From desert bandit fortresses to the innermost sanctums of kings and queens, if there’s a magnificent treasure to be had, you can be sure Jing has his eyes (and later his hands) on it.
Number of Episodes: 13
Release Year: 2002
Both series have an excellent atmosphere of outlaw adventures, be it a bags of gold, being chased by law enforcers or glorious escapes from jail. Both series also have really outstanding character designs: even the secondary characters which don’t appear on the screen for long are thought over and fun to see. You won’t see a saw-nosed man other than in One Piece, but you could see a smoking cupid with rifle in Jing.
9. The Seven Deadly Sins
Description: The kingdom of Liones is thrown into turmoil when the king’s Holy Knights are corrupted by a distinctly unholy demonic power. The land’s only hope is a band of powerful warriors known as The Seven Deadly Sins – an exiled group of oddballs who seem to spend as much time fighting each other as they do fighting their enemies. Princess Elizabeth desperately seeks their aid, but the leader of her would-be saviors turns out to be an undersized pervert with a broken blade and a talking pig! They are soon joined by a jealous giant, a fussy fairy, and an immortal bandit pining over his lost love. Can these people really be the legendary heroes she’s looking for?
Number of Episodes: 24
Release Year: 2014-?
I find the style and atmosphere in these two anime very similar. They both revolve around exploration and adventure, with notorious “criminals” as the main characters. The amazing powers and abilities are also pretty similar in these anime.
8. Hunter x Hunter
Description: Drawn to the mystique of the unknown, Hunters travel the world in search of terrifying creatures, incredible riches, and unexplored lands. Gon Freecss is a naive-yet-determined young boy who aspires to join the ranks of these individuals, in order to find his missing father Ging – a master of the profession himself. To reach his goal, he partakes in the formidable Hunter Exam, a series of tests that push the participants to their physical and mental limits, with a Hunter License as the prize. During the exam Gon befriends vengeful Kurapika, doctor-to-be Leorio, and skilled assassin Killua, who have entered for their own reasons. But with the sinister Hisoka standing in their way, will Gon and his friends be able to succeed in obtaining their reward, or even escaping with their lives?
Number of Episodes: 62
Release Year: 1999-2001
One Piece and Hunter X Hunter share the same depth of story with similar elements — action, adventure, comedy — ranging from light-hearted fun to gripping drama. Both series starts out with the main character gathering friends, and throughout the series the interaction between characters shows the depth of friendship they have. Both series have the same grand, epic adventure premise (Luffy to become the Pirate King, Gon to become a Hunter). Along the way they’ll meet up with tough opponents, and through each challenge they become stronger Both series are easy to follow, but Hunter X Hunter is the more action-packed of the two.
7. Dragon Ball
Description: A mysterious monkey-tailed boy named Goku teams up with a teenage computer-wiz girl named Bulma to search for the mystic Dragon Balls. According to legend, whoever collects all 7 Dragon Balls will have any one wish granted. Join Goku in this hilarious anime masterpiece, as he races and battles to save the world from the forces of darkness. Who will find the balls first?
Number of Episodes: 153
Release Year: 1986-1989
Dragon Ball was the series that inspired One Piece’s creator. You can see a lot of similarity between Goku and Luffy. Both are packed full of action and comedy – along with an insanely high number of episodes! Either enjoy the classic Dragon Ball, or watch a classic inspired modern One Piece. May shounen never end!
Description: In Gintoki’s Japan, the arrival of the various space races known collectively as the Amanto ended the era of the samurai. The Amanto’s highly advanced technology resulted in total conquest and a severe economic shift. Now, former samurai such as Gintoki scrape together whatever livelihood they can. Gintoki’s profession of choice is that of a yorozuya: he’ll complete any job for money. However, he’s unmotivated; and spending most of the day on the couch with the latest issue of Jump and a carton of Strawberry Milk is his preferred pastime. It turns out that his new unpaid employees, Shinpachi and Kagura, are going to interfere with his pastime even more than with his “work”! Of course, none of this means he has really given up on his samurai ideologies!
Number of Episodes: 201
Release Year: 2006-2010
While very different on setting (One Piece being a grand adventure overseas in a magnificent fantasy world, and Gintama always taking place in the same town district, Kabukicho, and its surroundings) and focus (action with a dose of humor in One Piece; the opposite in Gintama), they both share something more important: they are epic and generally cheerful tales revolving about values like friendship, pride and justice, with each of them managing those themes on their own way.
Both One Piece and Gintama harbor huge casts of quaint, motley characters, each of them with their particular quirks and appeal. That, along with their interactions with each other and the humor involved, will make you care for these people as something more than drawings on a screen.
While the humor style is very different (One Piece goes for an universal approach with easy-going comedy while Gintama gives off more of a Japanese scent on it), there’s no reason for you not to appreciate either once you’ve taken a liking for the characters.
Description: Middle school student Tsuna has always gone through life in last place; but when he learns that he is getting a tutor to help him raise his game, he had no idea that his benefactor would turn out to be… an infant and a mafia hitman?! As if things can’t get much stranger, Tsuna then discovers that the powerful Vongola family has chosen him to be its next successor – a position that has control over all mafia families. Joined by friends Tsuna unwillingly starts out on his path to becoming a mafia boss – if he can survive the training!
Number of Episodes: 203
Release Year: 2006-2010
One Piece is an anime that’s about friendship and friends you need to protect. In One Piece there is an captain that has to protect them all and in Hitman Reborn it is the new Vongola Boss, Tsuna, who needs to protect them from time to time, and of course, sometimes the other way around. That’s what’s so simular between these animes and that’s why you’ll love Hitman Reborn.
Description: “Vash, the Stampede” – worth 60 billion dollars to the one who can turn him in. Bounty hunters everywhere are on the lookout for this legendary gunman, not to mention insurance agents Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who are tasked with preventing any potential damage that this Vash can cause. But with 60 billion on his head, Vash is not an easy man to find.
Number of Episodes: 26
Release Year: 1998
They have a similar feel in the sense both fight oppresion in search of fun and adventure.
Both are light hearted and whimsical but do get very serious at times. They both also have spectacular fights.
Description: Fifteen-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a typical teen with fighting skills, two caring sisters and a special trait: he can see ghosts. However, when Ichigo and his family find themselves under attack by a huge beast, Ichigo discovers that there’s more to the supernatural world than the everyday specter. Vengeful spirits known as Hollows roam the world in search of devouring souls, and Shinigami – soul reapers – work tirelessly to defeat them and guide normal ghosts into a place called Soul Society. Ichigo valiantly fights the Hollow that threatens his sisters, but on the verge of defeat a Shinigami named Rukia gives him her powers, turning him into a Shinigami himself. Ichigo must now adjust to his new life of both vanquishing and saving souls for the sake of Soul Society.
Number of Episodes: 366
Release Year: 2004-2012
Although they are set in alternate universes and have different storylines, if you liked Bleach or One Piece, you’d like the other because they have the same/similar elements in both shows. They both have a lot of action (the fight scenes in both shows are epic) and comedy, as well as well-developed characters.
Description: Naruto Uzumaki is a young ninja who bears a great power hidden inside him, a power that has isolated him from the rest of his village. As such, his only dream is to become the Hokage – the most powerful ninja, and leader of the village; but first he needs to graduate! With his inability to perform even the most basic ninja techniques, it seems that all Naruto has going for him is his determination to succeed no matter what. Teamed up with the genius Sasuke, book-smart Sakura, and their team leader Kakashi, Naruto embarks on his quest to become the Hokage. But with outside forces posing a threat to the entire Hidden Leaf village, Naruto discovers that he must become much stronger if he ever wants to realize his dream and protect the friendships he’s forged.
Number of Episodes: 220

One Piece and Naruto are very much alike. Both are funny, and the episodes are almost never-ending, so the fun will never stop!
In One Piece there are pirates, and in Naruto there are ninjas; while that isn’t a similarity, both stories are about the main characters and their goal to become something big. On the way to reach their goal very much happens including friendship, enemies and much more.
You can’t like one of them without liking the other.
If you are a fan of One Piece, check out Naruto!
1. Fairy Tail
Description: Lucy is a seventeen-year-old mage with the power to summon stellar spirits, but what she really wants to do is join a guild – and not just any guild. She has her eyes set on Fairy Tail, a notoriously reckless and outrageous group of magic users who are likely to be drunk or destroying buildings and towns in the process of completing a job! While in town one day Lucy meets a perpetually-seasick boy named Natsu who, through a series of events, reveals to her that he’s none other than the fire-eating mage Salamander of Fairy Tail! Lucy is finally able to join Fairy Tail and quickly begins to take on odd jobs with Natsu and his gang for fame and profit. Along with her fiery friend, Happy the flying cat, Natsu’s archrival Gray and their overseer the invincible and beautiful Erza, Lucy sets forth for epic adventures that leave an epic amount of destruction in their wake. After all, destroying a city or five doesn’t matter as long as they get the job done… right?!
Number of Episodes: 175
Release Year: 2009-2013
Both are Shounen battle shows focused on a group of friends, working together as a team ( they are called “guild” in Fairly tail, and “pirate crew” in One Piece).
Both shows focus on “fighting to protect your comrades” . Both shift focus between comedic moments of peace and serious times of battles. Also the drawing style and the mood is really similar. If you enjoy one of the shows, you will probably enjoy the other one as well.
There are others also that are similar, But these 10 are far most Similar To One Piece.Consider subscribing to our mail list to get notifications about all news about anime, also join our anime discord server to talk with other anime fans. Discord Server
