Both Howl's Moving Castle and InuYasha are about a young and fairly normal girl who finds herself suddenly caught up in the unbelievable world of magic, curses, demons, and other strange creatures. Both stories focus on the magic and demons, the girl's struggles to cope, and the love that inevitably blooms from it all.

Howl’s Moving Castle and InuYasha are both about a young girl that gets caught up in a magical world of fantasy with cursed demons. There are encounters with strange creatures and demons along the way. Both series are more on the innocent side while the main characters try and cope while trying to find love.

LordIndy LordIndy says...

Love, Adventure, Magic, Comedy, and Action all share similar roles in these two animes that follow a young girl's dream for a more exciting life. Though not a perfect match many may find these two complement each other well and find content in Howl's more conclusive ending.

Fruits Basket

Both Inuyasha and Fruits Basket have a girl as a main character and are liked by more than one guy. The main characters also end up with the guy that does not usually show that they like her very outwardly.

rockroller rockroller says...

both anime's deal with a young girl who has changed the lives of people around her and vice versa. noth kagome and torhu keep the secret of the true lives of there friends. the characters also have some like qualities, such as Inuyasha, and Kyo, and Miroku and Shigure. also the love problems in the story are quite similar to each other

dmdg8 dmdg8 says...

Both anime are about a girl that finds out about a boy's secret, and that needs to keep it with her life. Both girls will love the boys with their lifes. And the boys all have issues in love showing affairs.

At least that's how I see it..the animes are two worlds apart, but with slight touching resemblemses.

Kamisama Hajimemashita

Kamisama Hajimemashita

Nanami used to live in a ramshackle apartment with her father - a man who spent half his time gambling and the other half hiding from debt collectors - until one day the scoundrel ran away, leaving his daughter hungry and homeless. That is, until she meets a mysterious stranger in the park who deems her the new goddess of a local shrine! Unfortunately, Nanami’s new home is occupied by Tomoe, a fox familiar who objects to the presence of a mere mortal and immediately begins to bicker with the girl. If she can manage to form a contract with the troublesome man, he’ll be obligated to accept and help her perform her duties. But there’s a catch: Nanami has to kiss him first, and who’d want to lock lips with that awful guy?!

Both series have a young girl who gets thrown into the world of demons and other supernatural beings who falls for a white haired, fuzzy eared male demon with a tail...or a giant sword. While InuYasha may be a little more action based and Kamisama a little more light hearted, the two are so similar it's almost cliche. But, that being said, if you liked InuYasha and wanted more silliness or you like Kamisama and want more action (and episodes) than you should check out your respective series.

There are a lot of similarities between these two series, particularly in character design. Yukiji looks very similar to Sango and Tomoe looks somewhat similar to Inuyasha. Both stories are about a human girl dealing with youkai. Eventually they both fall in love with their youkai companions who have past relationship issues.

Both have to do with a human girl who sucked into a supernatural world of the sort. and falls in love with a yokai whom they are very close to, both whom have had past relationship problems. Also, the art style is somewhat similar.

Hunter x Hunter

Hunter x Hunter

Drawn to the mystique of the unknown, Hunters travel the world in search of terrifying creatures, incredible riches, and unexplored lands. Gon Freecss is a naive-yet-determined young boy who aspires to join the ranks of these individuals, in order to find his missing father Ging - a master of the profession himself. To reach his goal, he partakes in the formidable Hunter Exam, a series of tests that push the participants to their physical and mental limits, with a Hunter License as the prize. During the exam Gon befriends vengeful Kurapika, doctor-to-be Leorio, and skilled assassin Killua, who have entered for their own reasons. But with the sinister Hisoka standing in their way, will Gon and his friends be able to succeed in obtaining their reward, or even escaping with their lives?

Hunter X Hunter is a great adventure story for all ages. As with Inuyasha, they are on a quest to find someone, only in HxH they aren't trying to kill Gon's father. New adventures and fun.

freakzilla freakzilla says...

Hunter X Hunter doesn't have the romance InuYasha has, but it does have the rest of its features! Great action, some comedy moments and a group that sets out on an adventure can be found in both; yet the most important thing both have is that playful feeling!

Full Metal Panic!

Full Metal Panic!

Gonzo does it again with this action-packed mecha comedy. She's an ordinary high school girl. He's a counterterror agent assigned to protect her from those who would steal the information locked in her mind. OK, so she's not so normal after all. Armored Slave battles and lovers' spats abound as Sousuke and his comrades try to track down the mysterious Gauln before it's too late.

If you like Inuyasha, chances are you'll appreciate Sousuke's position in Full Metal Panic, as he is charged to protect, and worse, rely on, a beautiful high school student with a strange gift.

norco norco says...

If you enjoyed the comedy/romance episodes of Inuyasha mixed in with action and battles, you should give Full Metal Panic a try. Like Inuyasha, Full Metal Panic, takes a step back every once and awhile and throws in an episode of shear romcom. This aspect gives these a very similar feel.
