InuYasha and Utawarerumono are fantasy anime that take place in a quasi-medieval setting in which fighting and major battles play a very important role. In both the protagonist ends up gathering an unlikely band of companions that help him in his adventures. InuYasha is heavier on the comedy and ends up running into fillers while Utawarerumono is a tight production that is essentially serious. It is interesting to note that both have human-like characters with animal ears.

At first these two seem to have nothing in common but Inuyasha and Cardcaptor Sakura are very similar.
Both Sakura and InuYasha have lost their mothers while Kagome and Li seem to have no fathers.
These series contain light humor, some romantic triangles, slapstick, action, and definitely adventure.

The main heroine characters, Chii in Chobits and ‘Nyuu' or Lucy from Elfen Lied, are very similar to each other and act the same way when they first appear. I thought that the story lines were very similar to each other too, except Elfen Lied has a great deal of gore in it whereas Chobits focuses more on the ‘cute' aspect of the characters.

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
