In the second movie of InuYasha there is a priestess of the mirrors that InuYasha and the gang have to defeat by gathering items; while in Fushigi Yugi, the main heroine in the story is the priestess of Konan who tries to protect the land she is in. Both comedic groups of people have to deal with mystical powers and unexpected interferences in the feudal era.

If you liked watching Fushigi Yugi: The Mysterious Play and seeing Miaka the heroine become the Priestess of Suzaku, you may wish to check out the Inuyasha: The Castle Beyond the Looking Glass movie.

With her circle of Celestial Warrior friends, she travels an alternate miracle land where her friend Yui becomes the Priestess of Seiryu, her rival and enemy.  Miaka must save the land from being conquered by Yui and her minions.

Inuyasha movie has a similar flavor and theme: Inuyasha and his circle of faithful friends band together in an alternate world of magic to fight powerful demons and overcome obstacles to destroy the mirror realm of evil Kaguya.

In one major point KKNJ is a better romance than Fushigi in that the dialog between Arima and Yukino is not simply them repeating each others names two hundred thousand times. Don't get me wrong, Fushigi Yuugi is by far one of my favorite anime, but if you are in the mood for more words in your romance and less 'Oh John, oh Marsha,' KKNJ is the way to go.

Both Fushigi Yuugi and Kare Kano have themes that circulate around romance. Both lead males also have similar character personalities. But perhaps the most significant similarity is the fact that both stories are also also about true friends that accept you for who you are. If you're one who likes cheesy love stories, friendship sagas and a tinge of ecchi then you might like one if you like the other.

Magic Knight Rayearth

Magic Knight Rayearth

MKR is a Clamp anime about three girls who are taken from Tokyo during a school field trip, and transported into a fantasy world. Hikaru Shidou, Umi Ryuzaaki, and Fuu Hououji must fight a slew of enemies, overcome trials and tribulations, and face their inner demons to save Cephiro, a wonderfully detailed world, from a dastardly evil and powerful Priest, Zagato.

Both of these classic and well-known series feature schoolgirls going to an alternate fantasy world. Fushigi Yuugi takes place in a land based on Chinese mythology, while Rayearth is more of a generic fantasy world tha could be borrowed from any video RPG. While both series are generally action-packed, lighthearted, and feature cute and spunky protagonists, they are also relatively serious for the genre (i.e. be prepared for things like character deaths). Fushigi Yuugi has more romance and soft moments and features harems of bishounen (pretty-boy) characters to appeal to female fans, whereas Rayearth has more fighting action and strong schoolgirl protagonists who don't need any boys to do their fighting for them (go grrls!).
Nomadichu

Both these animes have a lot in common, the girls in both stories are transported from their normal lives when the major thing they had to worry about was school to a magical world which they have to save, everyone who has seen one of these episodes will very much like the other, although magic knight rayearth does not have as much romance as Fushigi Yugi.

Though the stories are not the same. I think they have the same style of animation and lots of story progression.

tsumiki

Fushigi Yugi and Marmalade Boy are quite similar not only in the style of anime but they're both about two young girls who happen to find the love of their life, although both Miaki and Miki have to deal with their friends and also their enemies to keep their lover.

Zero no Tsukaima

Zero no Tsukaima

In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?

Both of these animes are about a character who is transported to an alternate universe. Both of these include a couple who can fight anything that comes their way. The couples both also have to overcome the fact that the characters are from different universes. Also, the couples have the problem that one character is of a higher rank of the other.

The concept of someone getting stuck in another world are in both of these animes. They are very similar in that they go to this new world and find love, go on misc adventures in hopes to stop war and find peace. Aside from the characters personalities one a harem the other a reverse harem, they are basically the same.
