It’s a story of action, it’s a story of the battle between good and evil, it’s a story full of comic relief, and it’s a story of love. Rave Master possess some or even much of the elements you’ll find in Fairy Tail and even more.

5. One Piece

Wizards or Pirates? Yeah, yeah, I know I’m comparing two very different things but, none of that matters! Why? Because what matters here is that if you liked watching Fairy Tail then you’ll definitely like watching One Piece as well.

Monkey D. Luffy is a young pirate. As spirit-willed as he is, he wants to become the Pirate King! So, he starts the Straw Hat Pirate Crew, ride the Going Merry, and ventures through the seas and into the Grand Line to achieve his dreams and become the greatest pirate ever!

Join Luffy and the crew as they go through countless of laughable perils and wacky adventures. Do you want to be a pirate now?

6. Soul Eater

Is it just me or am I in Halloween town right now? Oh wait, it’s just Soul Eater! With a theme that’s all about spooks but with nightmare before Christmas vibe plus all the action and whatnot, Soul Eater is rocking the city of death!

In Death City, a city governed by the Death Lord himself, humans that can transform themselves into weapons, and meisters that wields them skillfully, are raised to fight against the evils of the world. Outside the city, grave threats exists, and it’s the Death City’s job to smite these threats where they stand.

Maka is a meister and her partner is the Death Scythe-wannabee Soul. Together, they train and attend in the Shibusen School for Meisters and Death Scythes to one day defeat witches and bring long-lasting peace not just in Death City but in the whole world.

7. Hunter x Hunter

What can I say? Personally speaking, I find Hunter X Hunter on the same grounds as Fairy Tail but way WAY better! It’s a gigantic adventure, but it’s one that’ll make you feel thrill, excitement, and wonder in every second it shows.

The world is one mysterious place. Lots of unknown things are yet to be discovered and so, hunters are employed to do just that. As a result, hunters are treated as high-class and VIPs of the world. It’s not easy to be one though as the path is laden with dangers and life-threatening tests.

Ever since he was young, Gon Freecs wanted to be a hunter. His father “Ging” is a well-renowned and legendary one so Gon looks and longs for him so much. And so, as soon as he reached 12 years of age, he embarks on a grand journey to become a hunter starting with the exclusive hunter licensure exam.

The adventure is just beginning, and Gon shall soon discern that the world, as he knows it, is but a tiny fraction of what he’ll soon learn and discover as a hunter.

8. Sword Art Online

If you would like to live in a world such as Fairy Tail then that would take a whole lot of imagination and reality-bending skills. But, if that’s out of your league and you want something easier to achieve, Virtual Gaming Worlds are the worlds to go! They’re much more realistic and just waiting to boom. As such, I present to you Sword Art Online for now!

Sword Art Online is the newest craze in town! It’s a VMMORPG and a pioneer of the brand to boot. But, an unfortunate event has come to transpire! On the first day of worldwide release, countless of players are trapped inside the game, unable to log-out. What’s worse is—if they die in-game, they die in real life!

Now, tell me! Do you still want to live in this virtual game world? Well, you don’t have to do that. You could just watch Sword Art Online and experience immersing yourself in its thrills and buzzes yourself.

9. Bleach

Taking a trip to a magical world can be exhausting. So now, let’s get a train-ride to a similarly astonishing but darker world—the Soul Society. Enough about magic and let’s proceed with Zanpakuto, Bankai, and Soul power! Bleach is here to cater all of that!

Ichigo Kurosaki is not your ordinary student! He can actually see ghosts and spirits! One day, a hollow came so close to injuring him and his family. Good thing Rukia, a Shinigami (Grim Reaper) came to his rescue.

There’s a price to pay though. Rukia got exhausted in her heroine antics that she temporarily loses power. And so, Ichigo’s time to shine has come! He can now don a Shinigami’s job while Rukia is out of the picture!

Slash hollows, keep spirits at bay, protect his town and Soul Society—these are what Ichigo needs to prepare for if he wants to leave unscathed.

10. Inuyasha

Inuyasha | Source

As supernatural as it can be, Inu Yasha is not that far away from Fairy Tail. I mean, magic, supernatural creatures and phenomenon, adventure, and more—you’ve got all of these as well in Inu Yasha!

On one unnatural day, Kagome, a ordinary girl student, gets dragged into a well only to find herself in “Old Japan.” In that time, demons, monsters, and all sorts of supernatural entities freely exists, much to Kagome’s surprise.

One of the biggest surprise she witnesses is the existence of the Shikon Jewel, a jewel that is said to grant and wish or desire. In a sea of conflict, that same jewel gets shattered. And so, Kagome with the aid of a half-dog, half-human breed known as Inu Yasha ventures into a mission to collect the Shikon Jewel shards and keep it away from malicious hands for good.

      Ehh...past Magi, I don't really see any of the rest listed as similar to Fairy Tail.

      Though they are definitely all good recommendations. I heard Seven Deadly Sins had a confirmed season two at the end of Arslan Senkis last episode. Hope that's true!
