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.

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 :)

RIN-NE

RIN-NE

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

Dragon Drive

Dragon Drive

Throughout his life, Oozora Reiji has always been rather half-hearted. Never able to fully dedicate himself to anything, he lives a sloppy day-to-day existence, until his classmate Yukino introduces him to Dragon Drive -- a virtual reality game. While Reiji garners a passion for the game, it would seem that its founders have other things in mind than simple entertainment. During a special training, Reiji discovers that Dragon Drive is more than just a game, and now must fight for the survival of the dragons as well as all of mankind!

Dragon Drive and Inuyasha are both fighting anime packed full of action and adventure. You are sure to love one if you love the other. They other 'suprising' similarity is the ever-ellusive bad-guy in each one. Those pesky bad-dudes!!
