Magic Knight Rayearth

Magic Knight Rayearth

MKR is a Clamp anime about three girls who are taken from Tokyo during a school field trip, and transported into a fantasy world. Hikaru Shidou, Umi Ryuzaaki, and Fuu Hououji must fight a slew of enemies, overcome trials and tribulations, and face their inner demons to save Cephiro, a wonderfully detailed world, from a dastardly evil and powerful Priest, Zagato.

Dimensionally displaced girl, kick ass sword fighting and the occasional spell slinging, as well as a decent mix of mythology and storytelling. Yes, Inu Yasha and Rayearth are similar tales of adventure and tribulation. Both are very awesome, for those who enjoy this sort of thing.

In both anime main characters are much alike - they are taken from present to a different world, where their powers are awaken, and they have to face a new, troublesome situation and are basically left with no choice as wheter to return or to stay and help this fantasy world's inhabitants.

chii chii says...

Girls get swooped away and taken to another point in time in both anime. InuYasha only has one girl that this happens to where MKR has 3 but they are all quite shocked and determined to find their way back home while fighting monsters and defeating demons. Animation styles are pretty similar but the humor is quite differnt. Check one out if you liked the other.

Kagome in Inuyasha reminds me of the girls in Magic Knight Rayearth. She really struggles to adjust to her new world, like Umi, she's insecure about her fighting skills at first, like Fuu, and eventually, she charges into battle like Hikaru! If you enjoy watching Earth girls fighting monsters in a foreign place and learning to control their powers, you'll probably love both of these!

D.N.Angel

D.N.Angel

For Niwa Daisuke, turning 14 should be accompanied by romance and the promise of new adventures into adulthood, but instead comes with a surprising revelation: all male children of the Niwa's bloodline inherit the powers (alter ego) of Dark, a phantom thief, upon their 14th birthday! Now, in addition to his ever-present quest to win the heart of his childhood friend Risa, Daisuke must commit acts of thievery (with his doppelganger Dark controlling his body), to steal mysterious pieces of art for unknown purposes. For Daisuke, his growing pains are just beginning!

I guess these series remind me of each other because so many of the battles are fought with creatures or objects that have been given power somehow and must be stopped. I know that sounds vague and general, but there's a very similar feel to the fights in these two shows. And both also have the comedy and romance packages added ^_^.

I guess the animes are simular because of all the fights and missions. ALso you gotta love the animation styles! And the romance, comedy, action!

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

The intense battle under taken by each of the characters in Inuyasha and D.N Angel are fun and exciting.  The male protagonists are similar to in their humor and willingness to overcome all obstacles to reach their goals.  The magical aspects in each bring life to the series.

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Both of the protagonists have two sides to them, light and dark, and fight against a maniac whose goal seems to destroy the world. Their missions revolve around stopping something that has become an object of power. Comedy and romance intermingle with the plotline in both anime, as well.

Kekkaishi

Kekkaishi

Sumimura Yoshimori is a Kekkaishi – an inheritor of the power to battle demons, using barriers called kekkai. His family is charged with protecting the grounds of Karasumori high school, a building which magnifies the power of demons who enter it. Helping him are his spirit-wolf companion Madarao, and next door-neighbor Yukimura Tokine, the daughter of a rival clan. Years ago, Tokine was injured protecting Yoshimori, and now he is determined to become strong enough to keep her from being hurt again. Of course, he'd rather bake his exquisite cakes than have to fight demons at all, but fate has something else in store! As a shadowy demon organization moves to steal Karasumori's power, can Yoshimori overcome legions of demons, a centuries-old family rivalry, and a grandfather who just can't understand his love for baking?

Inuyasha and Kekkashi both are supernatural power-up type of shows, and also have a somewhat similar relationship between the leading man and lady.

Canal Canal says...

Kekkaishi is a bit similar to Inuyasha since the main characters have to fight ayakashi and other supernatural creatures like Inuyasha and the others. Also the male lead wears the same outfit as Miroku.

poetax poetax says...

Both fall into the category of a shonen anime, and both deal with battling as the main subject for each episode. Also InuYasha, and Kekkaishi each share trace ammounts of Romantic feelings between the male and female protagonists. However Kekkaishi's romantic side is much more like a light crush. If you like one, you will be sure to like the other.

JordanJas JordanJas says...

Both of these animes have the main character protecting and having mixed feelings about the main female character. Not to mention the demons in both worlds. Gah I suck at these things! While I liked them both I can also see why some may not. I hope y'all enjoy these as much as I did!

Kyo Kara Maoh!

Kyo Kara Maoh!

Upon trying to save a friend from bullies, Shibuya Yuuri finds his head in the unlikeliest of places -- the toilet.

Inuyasha and KKM's main characters, Kagome and Yuri, are taken into another world. There, they both have important missions to fulfill. The stories take the main characters through romance, action and comedy, and the characters have to put their lives on the line in some way. A hero in the story always seems to save them, as well.

Nocturnalgloria Nocturnalgloria says...

Kyo Kara Maoh and InuYasha have protagonists who are taken from our world to a semi-Medieval and fantastical world in which magic abounds. Thrust in a dangerous situation, they must set out on adventures with a group of characters whose abilities prove vital. Sword fights, plenty of humour and occasional leaps from one world to the other make these titles akin.

firelizard firelizard says...

In both Inuyasha and Kyo Kara Maoh, an 'average Japanese student' (Kagome/Yuri) finds themselves transported into a strange world resembling the past where demons and magic are commonplace. The past reincarnation of their soul is someone important to several of the other characters, and this old soul is the basic of their powers.  Frequent flashbacks to the previous life occur.  Both must deal with the general hatred between humans and demons, and more specifically work to heal the bitterness between half demon and full demon and half-brothers.  Both must take time out from their epic quest to save the world to return to the world of their birth to attempt to pass their classes. Both manage to be incredibly funny to watch while still maintaining an overall serious storyline and complex well developed characters that you will love!

 

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Was the main character thrown through a trans-dimensional space via unconventional means (toilet/well)? Yes to both. Is the main character now in a feudal era setting heavily populated by demons? Yes to both. Does the main character learn they have a major important role in this realm? Yes to both. 

Both of Kyo Kara Maoh and Inuyasha are an enjoyable ride of humor, fight scenes, and intertwining plotlines. If you like one, you'll probably like the other. 

Tsubasa Chronicle

Tsubasa Chronicle

The power to cross over dimensions is one that is deeply coveted -- a lesson that childhood friends Sakura and Syaoran learn the hard way when an unknown enemy attacks an archaeological dig in their country. As a result, Sakura's memories are scattered to different dimensions, causing her to fall into a deep sleep. In order to save Sakura's life, she and Syaoran must journey to various worlds in search of her memories, with the help of fellow travelers, Fai and Kurogane. But finding Sakura's memories won't be easy, and the price for traveling through time and space is high...

Both series are, well, collecting series. Someone's looking either for shards of a jewel or feathers of memories. In the end, both series are romantic and have concluded episodes. Not to mention, both are yet to finish!

4EverDreamer 4EverDreamer says...

In both, the female lead is looking for scattered items (feathers and shards), with the help of a male lead and several companions. There is also a cute creature along (Kiara and Makona). There is a bit of humor and romance as well, and a bunch of fighting. I'm sure if you enjoyed one you will like the other.

kerokittyify kerokittyify says...

Both are questing series and both series have a main character longing to be 'seen' by the other.  In Tsubasa Syoaran is longing to regain the life he had with Sakura before her memories were scattered and hopefully regain with them the possibilities of a life with her; while in Inuyasha, Kagome wants Inuyasha to see her for who she is, not who she looks like and hopefully have him look to the future (maybe with her) instead of dwelling in the past. 

shinigamidono shinigamidono says...

In both series the main character wanders the world looking for the fragments of something in order to once again make it whole.
