Both InuYasha and Shaman King can be considered shounen anime as they super powered fights. Yet both have something extra as well: a lighthearted aspect that shies clear of being a full-blooded comedy, and a laidback flow that helps interrupt the fights.

Shaman King and InuYasha are both about fighting. Although Shaman King ended with a cliff-hanger ending, it's still nice. If you liked one, you're sure to like the other. Because both have characters that fight super cool!! XD

Dragon Ball Z

Dragon Ball Z

Five years have passed since Goku and his friends defeated Piccolo Jr. and restored peace to the planet. Gohan - Goku's son - and a variety of good, bad, and morally ambiguous characters are back, and perpetually not ready for action! Aliens, androids, and magicians all hatch evil plots to destroy the world and it's up to Goku to save the Earth once more - that is, once he and his comrades train plentifully in preparation.  Enemies will become friends and power levels will rise to unimaginable levels, but even with the help of the legendary Dragon Balls and Shen Long will it be enough to save Earth from ultimate destruction?

Both Inu Yasha and Dragon Ball Z have many extended fights over a large amount of episodes, and have a plot that revolves around collecting magical stones of sorts to gain power in some sort of way. As the underlying themes are relatively similar, one can assume that if you liked one, you would like the other.

Aside from the cheesyness, this anime has the same action thrill and excitement as Inuyasha, I'm 80% sure that you would love this anime if you anjoyed Inuyasha

Rave and Inuyasha have very similar themes: in each, broken pieces of an artifact from the past have been scattered and the protagonists are on a seemingly neverending quest to find them all. It's interesting to see how the very different characters cope with a similar situation. While Inuyasha has more action, Rave has less episodes.

Both involves a stone which was broken and scattered all around the world. The main characters in both animes searches for the pieces before they are found by demons. But also meet new characters through out the story.

Urusei Yatsura may be more of a romantic comedy, and Inuyasha may be more of an action series, but they both fit well together. Inuyasha has a romantic element to it and it is focused on a fair bit. Miroku from Inuyasha reminds me very much of Shuutaro from Urusei Yatsura, and Kagome punishes Inuyasha nearly as much as Lum does Ataru, though in different ways. Though Urusei Yatsura is pretty much episodic, there is a bit of a continuing story to follow. If you like one of these, you'd probably like the other.

chii chii says...

Both series have such odd characters and bad guys in it with very interesting humor to boot. Plot wise they are quite different as Urusei Yatsura is more lovey dovey where InuYasha has more action and adventure. But i have to say if you liked one check out the other.

Zenki

Zenki

Chiaki is an energetic young teenager who lives with her grandmother in an old temple just outside of town. She is a descendant of the powerful sorcerer Enno Ozune who, along with a powerful guardian spirit, protected the land from evil monsters. Now, sinister forces have begun to arise again and search for the Seeds of Evil. When their temple, which hides a Seed of Evil, is attacked, Chiaki releases the seal on the legendary guardian spirit Zenki to protect them - but he's stuck in the form of a child until she unleashes his power with the Guardian Bracelet of her ancestor. Together, the duo must defeat the evil Karuma and his minions while destroying all the Seeds of Evil. Can Zenki and Chiaki learn to get along and fight as a team, or will their constant arguments be their downfall?

Both these shows are quite similar in the way the main female has special spiritual powers and have some sort of control over their powerful male partners. They also don't get along at all, always arguing. They have to learn to work together, fight constant demons, and save the world by collecting items(jewl shards, seeds of evil).  Although Zenki isn't romance based, fans of one will most likely like the other as well.

Zenki was realeased many years prior to InuYasha and share the same group of characters, setting and similar world. InuYasha is far superior and its an epic story where every episode moves you forward, while Zenki is monster of the week, if you watched Zenki you will definietely enjoy InuYasha, I'm not sure the other way around, but you can give it a try.
