Nurarihyon no Mago

Nurarihyon no Mago

It is said that the spirit who stood at the helm of the night parade of a hundred demons was the supreme commander of all monsters and lord of Pandemonium, Nurarihyon. Young Rikuo comes from the bloodline of Nurarihyon and is one-quarter demon. Though he has the ability to communicate with, and command youkai he has no intention of succeeding his grandfather as head of the Nura clan, instead choosing to live a normal human life. However, with his family and aides all waiting for him to fully accept the succession and his ‘Night Rikuo’ alter-ego determined to become the next leader, can the young schoolboy fight his fate as a Nura to lead the night parade?

Both anime talk about part demon part human protagonists trying to accept their other side.  Due to their impressive demonic lineage they are either shunned/attacked by or respected by other demons which is to the their annoyance.

Anathemus Anathemus says...

There's some similarities to be found in both shows, beside the wide variety of demons, there's the struggle of the main characters to find a balance between their human and demon side and the artwork is kinda of similar, and guess what, we have the usual schoolgirls walking in the middle of all this (zZzZz)

Fire Tripper

Fire Tripper

Suzuko and Shu are siblings who live in an undetermined part of Tokyo. While walking together one day, an explosion suddenly occurs, and Suzuko awakens in an unfamiliar place: the past. The time is during Japan's civil war, and the faces are anything but friendly. With the help of newly-met Shukumaru, Suzuko must unravel the mystery of her disappearance and discover the connection between these two worlds, while trying to figure out how she can return to her own time and place.

Fire Tripper reminds me of an early sketch of InuYasha,

As like, Fire Tripper seems what may have evolved into InuYasha in Rumiko Takahashi's mind over time.

I think anyone curious as to the mind of the Inu Yasha's creator and is an Inu Yasha fan, might find Fire Tripper interesting, and if for some reason you've seen Fire Tripper and have never Heard of InuYasha, (hey, there may be some people like that out there)  you'd get a kick out of the Inu Yasha series.

If 1 has watched 1 out of the 2 he or she can enjoy the other 1. Since Fire tripper is considered as a prototype for InuYasha he or she  shouldn't be surprised to see similarities in both of them.

Star Ocean EX

Star Ocean EX

Claude Kenni just wanted to shine free of his military father's shadow, a desire that made him take unnecessary risks. One of those risks whisked him off to an unknown planet full of monsters and magic. There, he met Rena Lanford, an energetic girl with mysterious abilites who believes he is a hero of legend. Soon, they're off on an expedition to find the cause of the monsters and the truth behind the sorcery globe all while hiding the technology he brought with him. Looks like Claude's got bigger shoes to fill than his father's!

In both anime the relationship is between the male protagonist and the female lead. In both cases the two are really nervous for having feelings for each other and can never really tell the other one on how they feel.  Both have an epic journey to them and have good combat scenes to them.

AstralKnight AstralKnight says...

There are epic battle scenes between two rivals in both, as well as a love triangle and the lead male protecting the lead female. They both also feature scenes of humour and comic relief and a "love triangle". There is also the fact that Kagome as well as Claude don't fit in in the world that they have travelled to. The setting is also similar between the two and both include sword wielders, magic and a jewel (Shikon no Tama/ Rena's pendant). I love them both!

Both of these animes involve a girl that has the sealing powers of some long-gone person. And she's not exactlt the best with her new powers. Surrounding her are some powerful individuals, many of whom aren't completely human (several of whom are bishies). With the backdrop of rural countryside, and villains whose motive isn't exactly clear, but probably involves world domination, these animes are quite similar. 

cpayne12 cpayne12 says...

they are both similar in plot having the main character be a female riencarnation of a very powerful preistes/princess. both have a group of friends that help to achieve the goal and of course both have two of the main characters develop an amazing love connection. 

some of the differences is that inuyasha involves a love triangle and hiiro doesnt while in Hiiro the characters are fated to be toether whithout a choice and Inuyasha they all became friends and met along their journey.

Noragami

Noragami

Yato may just be a minor god now, but he’s determined to make it big and he’s got a plan. Unfortunately, things just don’t seem to be going his way. He doesn’t have a single shrine dedicated to him, his partner has just quit, and now he’s got to find a new divine weapon. Just when things look bleak, he meets a girl named Hiyori and changes her life forever.

I watched Inuyasha long ago so I might be inaccurate, but generally I felt like Noragami was kind of a modern Inuyasha (to my taste a bit worse). Both anime contain supernatural themes and the problem of half supernatural half human, while having our hero falling in love with the puny girl character that can't do much.

Both involve a sensible high school girl who is caught up in a world that she had previously no idea about. The main character is also someone constantly belittled due to some higher god politics, who is incredibly powerful, with father issues to boot. Also, cute sidekicks are involved :)
