Most of us love One Piece. We love Luffy, the Straw Hat Pirates and their mad capers. And we don’t want the fun to ever end! Surely, there must be anime like One Piece which will keep us entertained? Fortunately, there is and we’ve tracked down just the right shows for you.

One Piece Is Just The Beginning Of The Aventure!

TC Anime Blog - 10 Anime Like One Piece

One Piece started out as a manga, which was created by Eiichiro Oda and serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump as of July 1997. So yeah, this is a series that’s been going for almost two decades…how crazy is that?!

And since the manga was so huge, it was only a matter of time that an anime adaptation would hit television screens across the world. Monkey D. Luffy and his crew, the Straw Hat Pirates are just the kind of dudes and dudettes we’ve grown to love over the years, and never want to let them go. They’re just such a fun and charismatic bunch, while their crazy adventures make us wish we were pirates too!

So where do we go from here. After all, we can’t sit and watch just One Piece all day long, even though some don’t mind gawking over Nami’s sexy curves for hours on end. Thankfully, we’ve compiled a list of anime that we think fans of One Piece will absolutely love.

Let’s check out the top 10 anime like One Piece!

Gintoki Sakata needs to take up odd jobs, even though he’s a samurai. The reason he faces such a predicament is because an alien species known as the Amanto have invaded Japan, and have prohibited swords. However, this situation opens up new opportunities for Gintoki that he wouldn’t have considered otherwise.

Why you should watch it:

Witnessing Gintoki and his friends trying to make ends meet is always an entertaining experience. And the alternative Edo period setting mixed with science fiction themes makes Gintama an interesting proposition.

Sword and sorcery adventures are what most of us live for! Rave Master provides plenty of action, with a dash of romance to keep a wide demographic of anime fans very happy.

 

Naruto

TC Anime Blog - 10 Anime Like One Piece - Naruto

Why it’s similar:

Naruto is an anime like One Piece in so many ways, that the similarities are uncanny. The main leads, Naruto Uzumakiand Luffy are both sprightly and heroic, who care deeply for their friends. Both anime series are insanely popular with a massive cast of heroes and villains, that it’s often difficult keeping tabs on all of them.

Plot summary:

The hidden leaf village of Konoha seems idyllic, but bore witness to a tumultuous event which almost destroyed it.Kyuubi, a demon fox furiously attacked the village but was defeated by Yondaime, the village’s strongest ninja. He sealed the evil demon inside the newborn baby Naruto.

Why you should watch it:

When an anime series revolves almost entirely around ninjas, you know you’re in for a good time. The likable characters and awesome fighting scenes keep us coming back for more!

 

Fairy Tail

TC Anime Blog - 10 Anime Like One Piece - fairy tail

Why it’s similar:

Brave guys and sexy girls are not exclusive to just the One Piece universe. Fairy Tail brings us a fresh bunch of cool characters that are just as adventurous, if not more, than Luffy and his crew.

Plot summary:

Fairy Tail is a wizard guild located in Magnolia Town. Lucy Heartfilia is a celestial mage who decides to join this guild. She soon befriends and forms a strong bond with fellow guild members: Natsu Dragneel, Erza Scarlet and Gray Fullbuster as they embark on many action-filled adventures together.

Why you should watch it:

If there’s one anime series that has it all, then it’s definitely Fairy Tail. Fantasy, magic, comedy, action and adventure are all part of the package. Yet, it’s the attractive and charismatic lead characters which will capture your heart!

 

Toriko

TC Anime Blog - 10 Anime Like One Piece - toriko

Why it’s similar:

If you thought that Luffy had a voracious appetite, then it’s time to introduce you to someone that can take him on in any eating challenge. Toriko is one big dude with immense strength, who just wants to chow down on animals.

There are many other startling similarities between Toriko and One Piece. The Gourmet Cells play a similar role to the Devil Fruits, and the Gourmet world is a dangerous and tricky frontier to navigate just as the Grand Line. And neither series skimps on adventure and intense fighting scenes.

Plot summary:

The Gourmet Age is upon us, and fine dining is all the rage. People of all walks of life crave the most exquisite foods made with the finest ingredients. But the best ingredients are difficult to come by, and only Gourmet Hunters are skilled enough to procure these. Toriko is a gluttonous but famous Gourmet Hunter who is called upon by Chef Komatsu for a unique assignment.

Why you should watch it:

Toriko is the outlier on this list. That’s a good thing though, as its food theme gives it a unique flair helping it stand apart from the more fantasy-orientated anime here.

 

Nanatsu no Taizai (The Seven Deadly Sins)

TC Anime Blog - 10 Anime Like One Piece - the seven deadly sins

Why it’s similar:

A small group of knights, known as the Seven Deadly Sins is headed by Melodius. And similarly to Luffy, Melodius is an outlaw who’s actually a swell guy once you get to know him better. Furthermore, The Seven Deadly Sins boasts a classic adventure vibe and colorful style which One Piece enthusiasts will enjoy.

Plot summary:

The Holy Knights of Britannia use their immense combat and magic skills to protect the kingdom of Britannia. Surprisingly, some of these knights decided to go rogue and turn their swords against their comrades. They were defeated, but it’s widely believed that they’re still alive and are now known as the ‘Seven Deadly Sins’.

Why you should watch it:

The Seven Deadly Sins is a modern production with old school character designs. And the European Middle Ages setting is way cool. However, this is a series that’s aimed at a more mature audience to that of One Piece.

 

Dragon Ball Z

TC Anime Blog - 10 Anime Like One Piece - dragon ball z

Why it’s similar:

Dragon Ball Z is an anime that’s a lot like One Piece. For one, it was produced by Toei Animation who also worked on One Piece. And secondly, it boasts a massive cast of iconic characters which have left their mark in mainstream popular culture!

I’m sure most will notice how similar Goku and Luffy are from their respective appetites, fighting abilities and powerful techniques. Both lead characters are also incredibly friendly, which is why they keep growing their crews and constantly making new alliances as their respective stories progress.

Plot summary:

Gokuu just wants to chill and enjoy life with his family, but his world is soon turned upside down when Raditz pays him a visit. He initially introduces himself as Gokuu’s long-lost brother, and that he’s part of the Saiyan race. But Gokuu has no plans of allying himself with Raditz. Unfortunately, he won’t be able to avoid the danger the Earth will soon face.

Why you should watch it:

This is undeniably an epic action martial arts series, which is notorious for its long drawn-out battle scenes and drama. Soap operas have nothing on Dragon Ball Z!

 

Soul Eater

TC Anime Blog - 10 Anime Like One Piece - soul eater

Why it’s similar:

The main protagonists of Soul Eater are a ragtag crew of individuals who are just as quirky as the Strawhat Pirates. And they all possess unique powers and abilities, setting them apart from each other, therefore, making it easy for us to root for our favorite Meister. But if you appreciate the humor in One Piece, then you’ll be pleased to know that Soul Eater is of similar comedic value; watch out for those funny fight scenes!

One Piece also has a serious side too, with a rich story. Soul Eater has those serious and more cerebral moments as well, but just a tad darker.

Plot summary:

Shinigami train people with the ability to transform into weapons, as well as the wielders of these weapons who are known as Meisters. The training takes place at the Death Weapon Meister Academy in Death City. Meisters absorb the souls of 99 evil humans and one witch in order to transform their weapons into ‘death scythes’.

Why you should watch it:

Soul Eater has a darker tone than One Piece. And due to the unique supernatural themes introduced here, they’re represented in an imaginative way.
