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.

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.

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 :)

The both have similar main girl characters, even though kogome is a bit gutsier than Sakura. Rinne also feels a little more lighthearted.

Ushio and Tora TV

The basic story is the same for both InuYasha and Ushio and Tora. A teenager who lives at a shrine falls into a hole of some sort and ends up freeing a demon. Said demon must now help the human kill other demons. The demon comes to like the human and help them of their own free will. (It seems that after being stuck in one spot for centuries causes certain demons to enjoy the company of humans.)

Tone down the love angle and ramp up the fighting demons and spirits and you have the same show, magical weapon and all.
