Together with his younger brother Ren and the feisty heir to the Kannagi household, Ayano, he fights to protect those he cares about... for a price!
They both have the back and forth romance that keeps you hoping something would happen the entire anime. They have a strong male lead and in both the girls have to struggle to get better at what they do. The action scenes are pretty good in both and it's easy to get lost in either one.
Hideyoshi is a typical middle school girl, concerned with fashion, trends, and boys. So when she is transported back to the warring period of Japan, culture shock doesn't even begin to describe her reaction! In this world, the inhabitants are only women, and this gender bending take on Japanese history sees Oda Nobunaga seeking the Crimson Armor in order to rule the world! But she'll need Hideyoshi's help to do it in Battle Girls: Time Paradox!
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.
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.

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. :)
Gokudo is an adventurer who lies, cheats, and steals to get exactly what he wants, until he steals a magic sword. After a comedic lesson in humility and the prospect of riches and women, he embarks on a quest to save the world of magic. Travelling with the slime-ball Gokudo are royalty, fantastic creatures, and even gods.
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?!
