I discovered this series by chance while using the keyword "Ninja." What are your suggestions for a semi-serious, well-written anime like Naruto.

To me that means, no a High school setting, or too many goofy characters. Plot, story flow, excitement, highs and lows and emotion would be nice.

So far I have enjoyed-

Naruto (obviously)
Witch Hunter Robin
Ghost in the Shell (series/movies)
Ninja Scroll (series "Jubei"/movie)
Akira

What's your suggestion(s)?

I second that Naruto is the best, I like other animes in other genres but all in all Naruto is a cut above the rest. I personally don't think Kenshin was all that great because of his no killing policy, so I would take Samurai Deeper Kyo over him.

Bleach and Beet the Vandel Buster are good animes too.

If you really want to see i good anime, I recommend JUNNI KOKKI aka the 12 kingdoms. Great plot good charater development, and the animation is great. Here is a link that will explain whats it about.http://12ktp.inspirelight.net/

Also Ninja/Samurai animes here is a list
Legend of the hakken den=7 dog warriors
The Yotoden chronicles
rourouni Kenshin
Samurai deeper Kyo

And also check out Wolf's Rain

An semi-Naruto like anime would have stary flow with a brief history of the stoy, highs and lows of emotions, strong main and secondary charators, a little bit of mistery along with the charators, and wild abilities!

Series that I like with that sort of description are:
Witch Hunter Robin
Samurai Deeper Kyo
Gundam Wing
Gundam Seed
Hellsing

So far I am enjoying Samurai Deeper Kyo, Kenshin, later episodes of Yu Yu, love Hina seems ok, low on action tho', but I have seen only one epi. Wolf's Rain is ok, harder to follow though. Hellsing is getting interesting, Full Metal is ok and of course the famous Japanese anime "Family Guy" is great, but the sword play is a bit slow! ;)

Well, I like Naruto the anime, but I also like FMA, I cant choose between them, I like them both equally, well maybe Naruto a bit more.

Anime with TOO MUCH BLOOD. That's what I suggest

Watch Trigun. You won't regret it. Tell you what, buy the whole box set; it's my second favorite anime.

i like Trigun its nice but i need to finish it...
but probably for me the strongest competition with naruto would be FullMetal Alchemist...i cant see anyone not liking it

-Fruits Basket (It's got the high school setting, but there's an excellent blend of humor and drama that cannot be overlooked)
-Yu Yu Hakusho (semi-high school based, but overall excellent. DBZish, only with WAY shorter fight scenes and better looking charas :D )
-Wolf's Rain <original Japanese> (even if you've seen it, see it again I've never regretted buying the entre series in Japanese)
-Fullmetal Alchemist (Yes, it's been put into mainstream now <remembers Inu-Yasha and Wolf's Rain>, but it's still good)
-Berserk (BLOOD!! AND VIOLENCE!!)
-Cowboy Bebop (a must, an absolute must for any Otaku)

Once you're through with those, there'll probably be another batch of aimes out there just waiting for ya!

Yeah, my list is the same as Kiarae's

And besides, if there isn't any more animes...well...then...Watch these again!

i think that they should make a anime after naruto based on him as a grown up kinda like a rurouni kenshin type of anime that would be sweet
