Synopsis:

In the present, Japan is under assault by murderous creatures known as Aragami whose origin and purpose remain unknown. The fate of Japan and the world itself lies with one young woman named Momiji who bears the burden of the Kushinada -- the one who must be sacrificed to silence the Aragami forever. With the help of Mamoru Kusanagi (a human and Aragami hybrid), and an agency filled with firepower-toting bodyguards, Momiji must use her Aragami-sensing powers to help save mankind; but will she ultimately have to lose her own life to save the lives of so many others?

InuYasha

InuYasha

Kagome is a normal high school girl who falls into a well, transporting her back in time to the feudal era. Upon her arrival to this world, she mercifully unleashes Inuyasha, a half demon. As if this isn't enough, she also discovers that she is the bearer of the Shikon no Tama, a jewel of great spiritual power, a jewel which has just shattered into a million shards. Now, along with Miroku the priest, Sango the demon hunter, and Shippou the mischievious fox-demon, they must set out to find the Shikon shards and defeat the evils of the demon Naraku.

In Inuyasha, the classic young girl must help a 'demon' who should be against her, but they combine forces to defeat monsters and other evils. Inuyasha is awesome if you like those weird plant and animal mutated beasts in Blue Seed.
XMrNiceguyX
Both series have a similar feel. Both feature a female character who is quite often saved by some sort of demon/mutant. Though Inuyasha is a series which plays in a fantasy world, while Blue Seed is a series which plays in a more modern urban time and place.

If you liked Blue Seed, you'd also like Inuyasha because they have the same feel to them. Both are partially romantic with lots of action, and the characters in both seem to grow and find their true selves in the reflection of their bad luck.

I had no idea the same creator had made 3y3 Eyes and Blue Seed till way into the series, so keep in mind I didn't make this recommendation for that reason. They both have an alarmingly similar feel to them, with plenty of horror and monsters to go around. I admittedly enjoyed 3x3 much, much more... but if you liked one, you'd appreciate the feel of the other.

I believe the person who wrote the manga for Sazan Eyes and Blue Seed is the same.  Both anime involve a young protagonist who encounters a mythical element/power/figure;  They are then entrusted to use their newly found power to fight the forces of evil

Blue Gender

Blue Gender

In the early 21st century, the emergence of an incurable condition known as B-cell growth led some of the affected to become "Sleepers" - people put under stasis until a cure could be found. Yuji Kaido is one such Sleeper who awakens, several decades later, to a horrifying new reality. Giant bugs known as Blue have invaded the Earth, eating everything - and everyone - in sight. Now, all Yuji can do is escape from the city with the ones who saved him from his inevitable death, and make their way towards Second Earth: mankind's new home in space.

Both series have a clear apocalypse scenario in it. Though while Blue Gender plays after this apocalypse, Blue Seed plays a bit before that. In addition: Blue Gender involves Bugs, while Blue Seed involves plants. The romance apect of Blue Gender is waay heavier than the romance in Blue Seed.
TheBurningCrow
Blue Seed and Blue Gender have more in common than the color Blue in their title. Anyways, all the strange plant monsters in Blue Seed are a lot like the Blue in Blue Gender that are trying to destroy mankind. Of course a select handfull of people actually fight the monsters to try and save the world. There is also a huge plot theme that is similar, but I won't say more without spoiling it for you.

They are both fast pace action dramas. Good char development in both worth ehckeing out. These type of stories always have a common theme lucky (defeat the bad guys as a team) so I can recommend them easily if you liked one you should watch the other.
TheBurningCrow
The idea of both series is the same, but instead of giant mutating robots taking over the city, you have a bunch of giant mutating plants and animals. Very good action too.

If you liked the main character from one of the series watch the other. Miaka and Momiji have a lot in common - similar personalities, they fall in love with their protectors, and they have an important mission to complete. Both series are definitely worth watching.
Nanashi
Fushigi Yuugi is another classic heroine-needs-rescuing-because-she's-a-bumbling-idiot anime. Momiji and Miaka are very similar that fact. Where as Blue Seed focuses on guns and modern technology to fight the evil, Fushigi Yuugi relys on good old medieval style swordplay and magic. A word of caution: Whereas Momiji is a godawful annoying character, Miaka is quite possibly the most annoying female lead in an anime *ever*.
