10+ Anime Shows That Have A Similar Art Style To Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail is an anime series first released in the late 2000s, with its 2nd season in 2014, Final Season around 2017/2018, and many movies in between.

Now the new Fairy Tail 100-Year Quest will be released in July 2024 (7th).

Here are some anime shows with a similar art style to Fairy Tail to consider before and after FT 100 Year Quest!

Let’s get started.

 

1. One Piece

One Piece has to be mentioned for a lot of reasons. One of them is the fact that some designs from characters like Guild Arts are a direct influence of One Piece’s equivalent.

For an anime that started in 1999 and has aired ever since, consistently, and has dominated the manga charts beating even comics in the USA except for Superman, OP’s legacy is undeniable.

The art style, the adventures, and the elements of adventure have inspired many anime like FT. It’s only right to mention One Piece and not only for its art similarities.

 

2. Slayers Revolution

Slayers aired back in the 1990s and can be compared to DBZ but with a female lead and a male/female duo.

The franchise ended up with a newer season in the late 2000s (Revolution) with updated visuals. This is the version that can be compared to Fairy Tail with its art style, characters, and effects.

The anime follows Lina Inverse who spends her time hunting treasures, battering bandits, and loading her pockets with cash as one of the most powerful mages in the world.

Her attitude when it comes to fighting is a lot like Natsu Dragneel’s. And like Natsu, she can more than back it up.

 

3. Unwanted Undead Adventurer

Unwanted Undead Adventurer is an anime series that stood out to me in 2024. It’s a series about a man like Rent who goes to a dungeon, loses his life after meeting a dragon who wasn’t supposed to be there, and is reborn as the undead.

In this form, he learns to use his body and slowly becomes even stronger than he used to be, but has to hide his identity and the truth from the public outside the dungeon.

In some aspects you can compare the art style of this anime to Fairy Tail, though the studios are different and so is the approach even though both anime are magic-based.

 

4. Edens Zero

Edens Zero is a project of Mashima himself, and similar to Fairy Tail, the characters have many assets, sex appeal, and maintain the Fairy Tail look.

Even the main characters look pretty much the same except for their names, outfits, hairstyles, and other small details on purpose.

Comparing the art styles speaks for itself.

 

5. Fire Force

Made by David Productions, Fire Force’s anime series made a name for itself when it first aired, and continued with its 2nd season.

In this anime, putting out fires caused by unnatural sources, and facing off with religious sects with nefarious plans is par for the course.

Shinra Kusakabe can be compared to Natsu in so many ways, even with the art style, and it’s true among the anime as a whole despite the anime’s backgrounds being closer to fire and darker undertones when it’s time for action and investigations.

 

6. Amagi Brilliant Park

Amagi Brilliant Park is a bright and colourful anime series by Kyoto Animation. It’s one of the few Kyoani series that breaks away from their traditional designs and art style.

Kanie is the MC along with Isuzu Sento, who puts a gun to Kanie’s head and forces him to join her business which is in desperate need of saving (essentially).

The fun side of Fairy Tail and how the art is done can be compared to Amagi Brilliant Park on the surface, but it’s more of a strawberry-to-raspberry comparison.

 

7. Black Clover

Black Clover, like Fairy Tail, was hated at the beginning of its airing. The MC is too loud, the anime is generic, it’s a copy of Naruto, and all kinds of accusations began.

The anime has gone on to be successful like FT, and the art style in some ways is similar and familiar to fans of both anime series.

Both anime are based on magic and the world of supernatural things.

 

8. Food Wars

Food Wars is an Ecchi series with Shonen thrown into the mix. They use Shonen for the battle mechanics between chefs having cookout competitions, and the ecchi to exaggerate how good food tastes for example.

Made by J.C. Staff, the same studio as the new FT 100 Year Quest, the art styles and the outcomes, especially with fanservice, are comparable in an artistic sense.

 

9. Danmachi

Danmachi is about Bell, a guy who almost gets killed but is then saved by the “Sword Princess” Ais Wallenstein.

Ultimately this is an anime about adventures down in the dungeons and lower floors, but while exploring the mysteries of it both in the dungeons and on the surface.

The anime itself isn’t a direct comparison, but the art style is closer to comparable with Fairy Tail.

 

10. Log Horizon

Log Horizon is a somewhat forgotten Isekai anime series from the 2010s that was compared to SAO a lot.

The anime starts very slow but picks up steam and has 3 seasons in total.

Characters are stuck in a game called Elder Tales, and so they decide to live out their life inside of this game, including building a council, homes, towns, and more.

It’s the less dramatic version of SAO as far as story, and has more focus on adventurers and world-building inside of the game everyone is stuck in, but comfortable adapting to.
