If you liked the InuYasha anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
Why not step back into feudal Japan with either InuYasha or Battle Girls: Time Paradox? Both animes offer a fun and unique look into the past history and culture through the adventures of a young and naiive girl. Both of the main characters find themselves magically transported back in time and mixing up with history and historical quests. If you liked one, give the other a try.
Some things in life are so bad that you'd like to pretend they're just a dream. Unfortunately for Kazuki, trying to save a strange girl from being brutally killed by monsters (and ending up dying instead) is an unfortunate reality. Out of pity, the girl replaces Kazuki's heart with an alchemy-based artifact known as Kakugane, so that he may live on. With this strange device, Kazuki gains the power of Busou Renkin -- Arms Alchemy; a power that will come in handy when monsters (and worse) begin to plague his town! Kazuki soon meets the girl from his “dream” (named Tokiko) in reality, and she tells Kazuki to get on with his life; but with his sister and friends in danger, that might not be possible. Besides, if Kazuki gives up the chance to show off just how manly he can be, how can he hope to win the heart of the alluring older-sister-like Tokiko?!
Having failed to earn admission to a university, Hideki Motosuwa has moved to the big city, determined to study his hardest for next year's exams. However, an unusual distraction presents itself one unsuspecting day in the form of Chii, a robotic young girl that has been discarded in the trash. In a world where an increasing number of people turn to these 'persocoms' for company, the bonds and limits of human relationships are tested as flesh manages to fall in love with the machine itself...
An akuma is a soul which has been brought back to life through sadness and despair with the powers of Millenium Earl. Their mission is to terrorize the earth and all who dwell within it. The Black Order is a group of Exorcists that have sworn to cleanse the souls of the akuma, and collect the substance known as "innocence". This powerful substance can be used as an anti-akuma weapon, and ultimately can help destroy the evil Millenium Earl. Allen Walker is a young Exorcist who has the ability to tell who is human and who is an akuma with the help of his cursed eye. Together with the Black Order, Allen must find all 109 pieces of innocence to protect the world and defeat Earl.
Inuyasha is a great show that I've loved since childhood to my teenage years. It's about Inuyasha finding all the sacred jewels and defeating Naraku, the evil one. Along the way, he makes many new friends too. Typical stuff. And I would say that D. gray man is very alike in that sense as well. Allen Walker(the protagonist) also has a huge weapon in the form of a cool metal arm that can shapeshife. He also has to kill demons and find all the "Innocents" to defeat the Millenium Earl. Yeah, it's the same plot so if you loved Inuyasha, you will like D. gray man as well. :)
A mysterious monkey-tailed boy named Goku teams up with a teenage computer-wiz girl named Bulma to search for the mystic Dragon Balls. According to legend, whoever collects all 7 Dragon Balls will have any one wish granted. Join Goku in this hilarious anime masterpiece, as he races and battles to save the world from the forces of darkness. Who will find the balls first?
In both anime you will find that the plot and cast have similar elements. They have the uncivilized boy who teams up with the modern teenage girl to go on a search for jewels that, combined together, will grant their wish. In both series, the leading girl teaches the leading boy many things like how to deal with people and about modern technology.
If you enjoyed one, you will enjoy the other because they both have nice action scenes mixed with a wide range of characters topped off with great comedy.
