This series is about a normal teenage girl who somehow finds the path to the planet Gaia, and suddenly finds herself holding the fate of a world of fantasy, magic, and armies of mechs in her hands.

A girl suddenly draw into another world... suddenly far away from home and this world is filled with monsters. What would you do? Use your claws? ;) Escaflowne is the story of a girl who was brought into a unknown world and is suddenly know as the girl who can tell the future. Just like inuyasha needs to help kagome, a man named Van needs to help this girl. Inuyasha is abit less romantic and dramatic than Escaflowne but still a close match. One thing that is alot better about Escaflowne is that it doesn't have 100+ eps... since it's no the same thing going on under the whole series. But be sure to chech this magicfilled series out. You won't be disappointed. ^^

If you did like Inuyasha the you should deffently see Vision of Escaflowne. both got this girls travels back in time to a fantasy world. meet the love of her life that will protect her against any evil that will harm her and she gets many new friends. both love stories are very cute and romantic. the boys don't whant to admit that they are in love but you can see it on their faces. and eventually they have no choise but to admit.
freakzilla

In Inuyasha a girl travels back in time; in Escaflowne she travels to another world. It's a pretty obvious connection. Both involve a lot of fighting as well. The biggest difference is that Escaflowne tends to lean towards romance, and Inuyasha to comedy.

caitlin

Both Escaflowne and InuYasha are about a young and fairly normal girl who finds herself suddenly caught up in the unbelievable world of magic, with a stubborn man mixed into the mix. Both stories focus on the magic, the girl's struggles to cope, and the love that inevitably blooms from it all.

Sevoth

In both series, a girl from our world is suddenly transported to another world, where she meets a boy, with whom she embarks on a long quest with.

hamletsmage

Both of these series are about a young girl swept into a land of fantasy and wonder. She has the ability to see what others cannot, and uses this ability to aid a boy who is more than what he seems. With a band of fighters to aid them, and love issues causing drama, these are very similar stories. And with Sunrise animating both stories, the feel is quite similar. 

Fullmetal Alchemist

Fullmetal Alchemist

Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...

If you liked Inuyasha than you would probably like Fullmetal Alchemist. It, like Inuyasha, is a heartwarming  action-packed adventure that teaches us that war isn't always the answer.

brittdeal

Both stories have very in-depth plots. They evolve over time and do a great job at sucking you in. The complexities of Fullmetal mesh well with the developments of Inuyasha.

wolfangel87

InuYasha focuses more on a romantic aspect while including fighting and demons, while Full Metal Alchemist revolves around the main characters' comradery and the magic they possess. Each series includes oodles of fighting and an entertaining plot line.

chobitsu

Both series are about more than just action and fighting, they are a journey into humanity, friendship, and love. If you liked one, you will surely enjoy the other.

ConnorD

If you enjoyed inuyasha or Fullmetal alchemist, then i think youd enjoy the other. While they seem to have two totally different stories they are also a lot alike. Both shows consist of monsters or demons that tend to give them problems, and both shows are fully pascked with tons of ation and fighting!!! if you liked one of them, you should start watching the other!

wormwormboy

These shows are both long adventures with plenty of action and comedy. Inuyasha excels at having entertaining action and fun characters and Fullmetal Alchemist does much of the same. Even though Fullmetal Alchemist has a much better overall plot than Inuyasha if you were entertained by one your bond to find something you like in the other.

hamletsmage

Both of these animes are about a young person searching for an extraodrinary rock that grants everything you could wish for. But getting that rock takes an harrowing journey, self-realization, and a dash of drama.

fancypants

Both Inuyasha and Claymore have similar villains: demons. while Claymore has a female lead, both main characters show similar traits and skills, are half-demon half-human, and use special sword techniques. the storyline and characters are similar enough that if you liked one you should like the other.

brittdeal

In both Inuyasha and Claymore you aren't really sure if you have been taken back in time, to another dimension, or to a really odd future. This makes them both more appealing. The setting is key to the plot and the monsters in both series are what keep the attention of the viewer. If you love one you will love the other.

freakzilla

Claymore might be very different from InuYasha: it has no real comedy or romance, it has plenty of gore and even a story. Yet when push comes to shove, both have hardcore fights with plenty of swords action. The action is quite alike despite the different animation style; this similarity in action gives you the same feeling during the battle scenes.

wolfangel87

Both the villains in InuYasha and Claymore are demons and both of the main characters are half bloods that have to deal with the consequences and what that implies for everyone around them. They each have a special sword with which they use to kill the demons. Kagome keeps InuYasha in check not only for his personality but also for his full demon behavior whereas Claire is kept in check by Raki. They have to try and stay in control of their human selves.

Plazma

Both Claymore and Inuyasha take place in a feudal like time period and demon creatures are the main enemies  the two animies are very similiar despite the fact Claymore does not have too much romance.

hamletsmage

These anime are set in the past, though it is a very different past than what we know. Demons roam the land, making snacks of humans. The protagonist is a young woman that is the legacy of a warrior that was much stronger. Sword fights, half-demons, and plenty of action await you in these anime.

Rosette Christopher is a young nun who takes on missions alongside her contracted partner – a young demon named Chrono. Now it is up to this unlikely pair to wield God’s power – and plenty of holy bullets – to destroy the menace in front of them and confront the demons of their past.

If you enjoyed this show for the romance that always seems just out of reach, and all the misinterpreted and misguided relationships, peppered with all kinds of beautifull animation, fighting, and plot... then this one defiately deliver it all and more.
raidenxl

Inuyasha is very similar to Chrono Crusade in many aspects, one of the aspects would be that their is a demon who acts tough but actually is quite a soft hearted person who cares for the people around him, and the other that the demon devotes his life to protecting his female companion who they deeply care for. Both series feature fighting between demons and an emotional and deep storyline that draws you in. Although Chrono Crusade is alot shorter then Inuyasha, Chrono Crusade manages to tell its great story none the less.

saiyamar

If you liked the romance side of things with a demon and a human in this anime then you'll certainly like the other.

Both Inuyasha and Chrono Crusade are based on Demons fitting in with humans aswell as them having a troubled past. Both of these shows refer to a past relationship which the main character had with a human and then we see a new relationship similar to that happening again.

Even though Chrono crusade is rather a bit darker than Inuyasha, and Inuyasha is probably more suitable for younger anime fans, they are both similar. Inuyasha isn't so heavy on the plot all the time as Chrono is but that is to be expected with it being considerably longer than Chrono's 24 episodes.

If you liked one i recommend trying the other.

love4Sora

There's a very simular love between the two main characters, and they also have past loves, and issues they want to face, but they also don't want to give up everything they have in life.

pikachu203

Do you like epic fighting, good stories, lovable characters, or demons?  Do you like anime set in a historical setting?  Then both of these shows would definitely appeal to you, as they both contain such epicness.  While both InuYasha and Chrono Crusade take place in very different locales and time periods(InuYasha in fuedal Japan and Chrono Crusade in the 1920s in New York in America), if you liked one, you'd probably like the other.

Blue Exorcist

Inuyasha and Blue Exorcist have the main character is a half demon sword fighters that fight with humans

hamletsmage

Both anime evolve around demonic forces. The main protagonist is a thick-headed young man who takes out enemies with a sword. However, fully transformed, neither can really control themselves, and require the aid of a special group of people to finish the job.

Sasukefanx12

Blue Exorcist  and InuYasha both share the fact that the main character is half demon, half human and with their demon powers they decide it is their duty to protect the world from the evil demons. They also both have their loyal band of friends with a variety of other powers and fighting skills to help them along the way. Rin and InuYasha also both choose a demonic sword made specifically for them as their main mode of fighting.

pikachu203

Similar in several integral themes and with half demon main characters, the shows have a lot more in common then they appear to at the surface.  While they both occur in very different locations and time periods, the characters share some similarities.  If action packed adventure and epic half demon dudes are your thing, or if you liked either of these anime, you'd like the other one.
