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.

Fire Tripper reminds me of an early sketch of InuYasha,

As like, Fire Tripper seems what may have evolved into InuYasha in Rumiko Takahashi's mind over time.

I think anyone curious as to the mind of the Inu Yasha's creator and is an Inu Yasha fan, might find Fire Tripper interesting, and if for some reason you've seen Fire Tripper and have never Heard of InuYasha, (hey, there may be some people like that out there)  you'd get a kick out of the Inu Yasha series.

If 1 has watched 1 out of the 2 he or she can enjoy the other 1. Since Fire tripper is considered as a prototype for InuYasha he or she  shouldn't be surprised to see similarities in both of them.

Laughing Target

Laughing Target
  • OVA (1 ep x 49 min)
  • 1987

When they were just children, the beautiful Azusa, and her cousin the shy Yuzuru were bethrothed. In the present, Yuzuru has long since forgotten this promise, and is happily dating a young woman named Satomi. That is, until Azusa decides to pay a visit and cash in on their past vows. What's worse is that Azusa, spiritually and mentally speaking, is not quite what she used to be. With time running out and sinister forces against them, Yuzuyu must protect his love from a newfound evil, or die in the process...

It has the same type of tone. Both were made by Rumiko Takahashi and were animated during the same time frame, so they are almost companion OVAs.

Maris the Chojo

Maris the Chojo
  • OVA (1 ep x 48 min)
  • 1986

When the planet Thanatos was destroyed, a young Maris was left with nowhere to go. Possessing strength six times that of a normal human made it difficult living on any other planet. She broke things everywhere she went and when the repair bills added up, Maris found herself in deep debt. Professional wrestling wasn't enough to keep the debts at bay so she took up work with the Space Patrol's Special Police! A call from her boss gives news that she hopes will change her life forever --she is being sent on a mission to save the kidnapped son of a wealthy politician. Her plan is to rescue the boy, but her motive is to steal his heart and gain his fortune in the process!

Both were short stories by Rumiko Takahashi, made during her initial mangaka phase (Urusei Yatsura to Maison Ikkoku). Maris is more lighthearted though.

Mermaid Forest

Mermaid Forest
  • OVA (1 ep x 56 min)
  • 1991

It is believed that to consume the flesh of a mermaid, means that you will never show signs of age, and live forever. However, many cannot handle its taste and become demons for eternity. Towa is a woman whose thirst for this flesh consumes her, as she was made only partially immortal by drinking the blood of a mermaid years ago. Unable to cast her demons aside, she destroys everything in her path on a search for this legend.

It has the same type of tone. Both were made by Rumiko Takahashi and were animated during the same time frame and are part of the Rumic World canon. Mermaid's scar animation is a tad bit better. The animators decided to use the same type of film as the one used in Hollywood productions and it shows.
