Yu Yu Hakusho

Yu Yu Hakusho

Yusuke Urameshi was a normal middle school punk until he was hit and killed by a car, while saving a child. His selfless action earned him the right to gain his life back and serve as a detective of the spirit world, keeping the world of the living safe from a myriad of demons. But being reborn has its price: Yusuke must hatch a spirit beast that will develop according to his actions, and if he doesn't act in a good and honest manner, it will eat his soul. Can Yusuke protect the human and spirit worlds and still manage to save himself in the process?

Kiyohime

Get Backers and Yu Yu Hakusho both employ characters with magical abilities and call upon the paranormal and solve crimes and mysteries. While Yu Yu is more of a 'fighting to save the world' kind of anime while Get Backers is more of a 'fight because that what we were hired for' anime both are fighting for strong founded reasons. Action, comedy, and cool fighting sequences make up these anime  

Akunen

Get Backers and Yu Yu Hakusho both have a colourful cast, and each character has a unique power at their disposal. Both contain plenty of action, and there is a balance between comedy and the actual storyline. Though Hakusho is longer and uses much more action, you should enjoy one if you liked the other.

Zombie-Loan

Zombie-Loan

Michiru has an unusual ability: she can see a dark ring around a person's neck that signifies their time to die. However, she suppressed her powers once she "saw" the deaths of her parents – until now. After accidentally seeing rings around the necks of two boys in her school, it seems that Michiru's powers are back for good. The two are zombies who are working for the secret loan office known as Zombie-Loan, and they need Michiru's help to find other zombies – those with dark black rings around their necks. Though Michiru initially refuses, due to a series of events it seems she has no choice but to comply...

Both Zombie Loan and Get Backers are about a duo of two unlikely partners brought together by a common goal, as they both work unusual jobs by today's standards to earn some cash.

KiraRin

Zombie Loan is a highly underrated series that holds a lot of similarities with Get Backers. They both have a very similar comedy/seriousness balance that is used well.

If you enjoy the unsual pairing and ensuing hilarity of Ban-chan and Ginji in Get Backers, you will love the relationship between Chika and Shito.

Both have some exciting action scenes, interesting characters and look at the true value of friendship. Just a shame Zombie Loan was so short and almost cut off in its prime...

Baccano!

Baccano!

It's the 1930s, and Mafia groups fight for supremacy in American cities. Young Firo joins the secretive Camorra group; a meek street boy, Jacuzzi, finds himself the leader of a gang of thugs; an alchemist is producing a liquor of immortality, and a homunculus tries to retrieve it; and upbeat thieves Isaac and Miria head to New York after failing to strike gold in California. They ride the novel train, the Flying Pussyfoot, across the continent. However they find themselves embroiled in a ruckus caused by gangs, terrorists, serial killers, and others as multiple stories intertwine and unfold on this fateful ride. All are haunted and hunted by the legendary Rail Tracer...

Both series heavily involve fighting and constantly out thinking and playing the opponent with your convenient hidden super move.Both involve all the old rivals, secret powers, sensei characters and fem-fatales you liked from the other series.

Both series are based on fighting.  The characters in Flame of Recca use weapons whereas the characters in Get Backers use their own elemental powers.
