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!

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.

Yu Yu Hakusho

If you like this series for the fighting, you will like this series as well. Lots of intricate battles and character "powerups". GO FIGHTING ANIMES!!

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

Both YYH and Inuyasha deal with high school students and center around a strange demonic aura. There's mysticism involved, and each group fights the demons and tries to protect their homeland. Both of the main characters are males with very surly personalities that match their fighting skills. They each meet a group of friends along the way that strive to help them fight the demons and protect the ones that they love.

starlightknight starlightknight says...

Both Inuyasha and Yu Yu Hakusho focus on demons. In both series, the main characters spend the majority of their time fighting demons to help maintain peace in the world. In both series, the main character's strength grows exponentially throughout the story as they rise to the challenge to defeat new demons.

Both series also have many comedic elements that provide a nice mix of action and comedy.

If you like one of these series, you should try giving the other a shot.

PrettyBoy PrettyBoy says...

BOTH animes have a good mixture of action and romance. Inuyasha has a little bit more romance but they both have fantasy.  So if you like powers and beams and all that crazy stuff that we cant do in real life you will like yu yu hakusho and inuyasha.  These are MY top 2 animes of all time at the moment. HIGHLY recommend both !!!

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!

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.

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

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

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 Sasukefanx12 says...

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 pikachu203 says...

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.
