If you liked Inuyasha, you'd like Harukanaru because the plot is similar. The feeling that you get from watching the anime is also similar to that of Inuyasha. Some of the characters in Harukanaru Toki no Naka de ~Ajisai Yumegatari~  resemble some of the characters in Inuyasha as well (or the other way around =P).

The story begins with the half-demon Inuyasha being caught in a magical slumber, and by chance a young high school girl by named Kagome releases him from his sleep, but this is only the beginning of his troubles. Similar to Inuyasha, Mibu's trouble also begins with a unlikely encounter with a girl and multiplies by tenfold after. Both Inuyasha and Mibu have a dark side to them to which there completely unaware of, which makes for an interesting series in both cases. Both anime are highly recommended.

InuYasha and DB: Path to Power have quite a few things in common: nice fights, an adventure to get stronger, a story that is cut into several parts, and of course a very strong male lead. InuYasha adds some romance and comedy, but that doesn't make it less appealing to DB fans. These two anime will definitely be liked by the same fans.

At one point I thought that if I closed my eyes, I could exchange the characters from Night Wizard to InuYasha  and it wouldn't make a difference; not because they look the same, but because they essentially have the same function. In both there's a girl who has special powers and can feel the parts of the jewel she needs to obtain, a powerful guy who protects the girl, several sidekicks, and a specific weapon for each character. Really, if you liked one, there's no reason you wouldn't like the other.
