Both series have the typical roleplaying characteristics: A bunch of people get together to go on a quest. Each person has different abilities, magic, in RoLW even different races such as dwarf or elf. Of course in Fushigi Yuugi the love between Tamahome and Miaka is unique and in the foreground wheras in RoLW its more of a classic roleplay party where its most important to save the island Lodoss. Still if you like fantasy and roleplaying RoLW is what you want to watch. Also I also suggest Star Ocean Ex as similar series (roleplaying characteristics) - wasnt in the list unfortunately.

Blue Seed

Blue Seed

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?

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.

both series have a similar "feeling" to them, they both play in feudal china/chinalike environment so the setting is slightly different from the usual japanese sengoku jidai if you liked the tragic lovestory aspect in one of the animes you definitely should watch the other one

Now, regardless of the fact that these are both made by CLAMP, I still am recommending this pair for unrelated reasons. The dark aspect and fantasy is prevalent in both of these, with a giant group of characters who each has their own quirks. The lengths are much different, but still, try one out if you liked the other.
