Kamui has returned to Tokyo with a traumatizing past, but he is not the only one. Many people are returning to Tokyo for the same reason: they play a part in the End of the World. The Dragons of Earth and the Dragons of Heaven now must fight for the destruction or safety of the world. But is this troubled Kamui really the key to saving the world?
X TV and Fate/stay night are, coincidentally or not, about fourteen heroes fighting each other for the ultimate prize; the heroes are the 7 Dragons of Earth and 7 Dragons of Heaven (X), and the 7 magicians with their 7 servants (Fate/S N). The stories are about destiny, power and sacrifice, and are beautifully drawn, both taking place in present-day Japan. These series feature high school students torn from ordinary life for their higher purpose, and really go well together.
Both series have a similar premise and a similar atmosphere. Dark, serene, melancholic and surreal.
Ranmaru is young cop with a dark past. As one of the few survivors of a mindless slaughter in his apartment block, he joins a special unit called TOKKO to avenge his parents. On his first case, the already ghastly murder scene turns to one of terror, as the inhuman killers start to massacre the police. After being saved at the last minute by a secret unit named TOKKO who wield swords instead of guns, Ranmaru's mind is filled with questions and he is determined to find out the answers, no matter what it takes. What are these monsters, and why did they recognize him?
I loved the way these anime depict fights between magically endowed warriors. Two boys plunge head-first into a world of violence, and sword-wielding girls have to protect them and help them find their own strengths. Tokko is bloody, while Fate is not, but they are both strong anime in their own right, and have compelling and similar storylines. They truly are a match.
Fate/Stay night and Tokko share magically enchanted warriors. Well eventough Fate/Stay night might be considered a bit bloody then Tokko is giving full service for you. No censored / edited screens of corpses, all drawn in great detail
If you cannot bear overused bloody scenes then DO NOT watch this, it will be scary for minor watchers.
Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...
Both series are about a dark plotline: In FMA, they seek the philosopher's stone because it is said to hold to power to grant wishes without equivalent exchange; in Fate/Stay night, they seek the holy grail, which will grant both master and servant a fulfillment in any desire they wish. Both plotlines have twists and curves you don't see coming, and both end up realizing what they seek isn't all it's cracked up to be. If you like fullmetal, you're bound to like Fate/Stay night.
Fate/Stay Night and Fullmetal Alchemist are very similar to each other. They both focus on solving a certain mystery and to do so the heroes have to explore their world and powers, along with dealing with some very dangerous enemies. Both storylines are quite dark, and contain quite a few plot twists that will keep you guessing about what will happen next.

If you liked Action/romance of Fate/stay night i think youll like Kaze no Stigma too. Its one of the best series i've ever watched its Action/romance with pretty hilarious characters.
i think you really should check it out
It's been a while since I watched Kaze no Stigma, but as I watched Fate/Stay Night, it came to mind again and again. Kaze no Stigma has magic, action, and a bit of magic. Kaze has the added element of family conflict and deep grudges. If you enjoyed Fate at all, I highly reccomend Kaze no Stigma. And if you enjoyed Kaze and want some more of the genre, Fate/Stay Night might be the way to go.
Seven years ago, Kakeru’s sister killed herself, leaving him alone. Now a teenager, Kakeru lives a quiet life with his friend Yuka and other classmates – but things change forever when he and Yuka are mysteriously transported to a frightening parallel world filled with monsters and a deep crimson sky. Though they manage to escape, Kakeru soon discovers that they aren’t alone; several other students at school also travel to the other dimension, and armed with powerful weapons they battle against its dark inhabitants. Why must they fight, and what is their purpose in the Red Night?
Well, both series show great resemblance, so if you like one, definitely try the other:
we have a fantasy in which a boy is pulled into a magical war fought by mostly teenage girls, besides his continuing life at school. The fights are mostly fought in an ambience of (relative) mid-darkness and also the weapons are comparable. He gets help from a girl coming from a family of magicians and who is also a participant in the war. And the evolution of love among the warriors is also a little part of the plot.
Both series are based on eroge (visual novels) and definetely show it. Plot-wise, they are similar in that a fantasy world involving war is suddenly thrust on the main characters, and they must choose how to survive in their new world.
