Tachibana Riku is an orphan who lives with his adoptive grandfather. Other than school and homework, Riku has to put up with lessons from his grandfather, teaching him seemingly meaningless hand signals and signs; meaningless, that is, until Riku is violently introduced to the world of 'shikigamis', fighting beasts with human owners. After witnessing his grandfather defend against a shikigami assault on their home shrine, Riku obtains his own Drive device to summon his own shikigami, Kogenta, and it turns out the hand signals give the shikigamis special powers. With his newly obtained powers, and a shikigami as a companion and friend, what adventures await Tachibana Riku? Do his powers have any relation to his parents' disappearance?
Onmyou Taisenki and Blue Dragon although not related, have the same summon and fight backgrounds throughout the series.
In OT - Humans have devices which call beasts to fight for them, and the beasts are in relation to that persons personality along with their lament ability to use symbol gestures they later learn to grow.
In BD - By consuming a magical orb, humans have the power to cast their own shadows into magical dragons which fight battles for them as well, these dragons being summons of the persons inner and dwelling powers and strengths.
If you enjoy people that use summons that relate to themselves for fighting battles, this is a "both ways" recommendation.
Humans are under attack! The evil God of Death Thanatos is on a rampage, and it's up to Pit to put a stop to the Underworld Army's path of destruction. Armed with the Power of Flight that was granted to him from the goddess Palutena, Pit sets forth to complete his goal.
Kid Icarus is super short and meant to be a promotion for the upcoming game, while Blue Dragon is a very extended complement to the games. While there's plenty of game-based anime out there, Kid Icarus's focus on a single monster battle fits right in with the general tone and feel of Blue Dragon. Neither are very good, but fans of one might like the other.
