Any up and coming or recent series similar to Naruto?

I'm looking for a new or recent series that is similar to Naruto. Any suggestions?

Bleach is similar to Naruto in the aspect that it's a typical shounen title, and the archetypes and such are similar, as well as the plot structure.

Not that HunterXHunter is recent.

Nothing quite so overtly shounen is around right now. 'Fantastic Children' has a protagonist similar in many ways, but nothing like the same sort of plot. Some of the action in Mai-HiMe is similar to that of Naruto, but in terms of characters, pacing, setting and plot...nothing this season springs to mind. Bleach isn't particularly like Naruto, but the shounen, action elements give a similar atmosphere.

If you're okay going back a bit, there's always HunterXHunter, as CaSe- said...or One Piece.

Fullmetal Alchemist in terms of action but the story is a bit deeper than Naruto .

I'd say Bleach as well, it is rather typical shounen fare (though I prefer it to Naruto). It's also going to have extended battle scenes, various power ups, main characters who are beaten and bloody but not yet beaten and slews of secret techniques.

Go check it out

No one wants to say DBZ is like Naruto which is like Bleach But yea Bleach is good, and has a good bit of the manga with the anime. Its not really a good time for lots of shounen titles it seems, mabe next season ^_^'

First of all i have no idea wat beach is...but i do know full metal alchemist....i've watched the first 17 eps. its hilarious...and its very interesting...i would recommend that...there is also Ninja Scroll...its not the same but its very cool...i saw a bit at my cousin's but no more and i like it so far...Ceres....Its crazy about its...i read the manga volumes one, two, and four...i'm already ordered volumes one to eight (dvd) its english dubbed...its very has a lot to do with a legend...i for one really like it and i think you should give it a try...there is also Hunter X Hunter....its cool except i didn't see it english dubbed i watched arabic dubbed which sucked...(i know how to speak arab..) and i think u should watch it also....its more of an adventure and a a boy looking for his father and he makes friends through the way of looking for his father....
i LOVE anime
well anyways ....

I highly recommend Hunter x Hunter. Yes, it's older, BUT the OVA's are still being released, so even though it's older (2000 is old?), new episodes are still coming out.

I'm not quite sure I'd recommend Bleach as a substitute to Naruto. Yes, it's a good series, but I'm not seeing the similiarities aside from both main chars having spikey hair. :-P

yeah... Hunter x Hunter, One Piece, Full Metal Alchemist, and Bleach are must get for shounen fans...

My recommendations for the new season, even though they are not like naruto, are Monster, Kurau Phantom Memory, and Fantastic Children... those are the best ones that are comming out recently...

Man...I hope not

Altough I would say Bleach as well, totally different theme but similar premise.

Check out Ninku... it has ninjas... ninja techniques... and action.... the animation and the art might not be "current".... but I found the first four episodes (only ones subbed so far) pretty awesome... then there's also Hajime no Ippo... not quite ninjas and super powers... but it's got good action and some great comedic moments.... it's about boxing btw... and it's also very entertaining...

As for other action/comedy/kids/super powers/adventures animes out there... I second the One Piece, Fullmetal Alchemist and HunterxHunter suggestions... they are all worth the watch...
