Synopsis:

Kagome is a normal high school girl who falls into a well, transporting her back in time to the feudal era. Upon her arrival to this world, she mercifully unleashes Inuyasha, a half demon. As if this isn't enough, she also discovers that she is the bearer of the Shikon no Tama, a jewel of great spiritual power, a jewel which has just shattered into a million shards. Now, along with Miroku the priest, Sango the demon hunter, and Shippou the mischievious fox-demon, they must set out to find the Shikon shards and defeat the evils of the demon Naraku.

One of the more intereting aspects of Inu Yasha is the way that Japanese Mythology was weaved into the story. In comparison, Spirited Away is a solid bet for those of you who enjoy a good tale spun around Oriental Lore. Be wary, however, that Spirited Away is less action oriented. A fantascit film regardless.

Both Spirited Away and InuYasha are about a young and fairly normal girl who finds herself suddenly caught up in the unbelievable world of magic and curses, with strange creatures galore. Both stories focus on the magic/curses, the girl's struggles to cope, and the love that inevitably blooms from it all.

SavesTheDay

Both Spirited Away and InuYasha are about a girl that gets transported to a place that she is unfamilliar with. They both deal with the girls gaining a better understanding of their new environments and the people that live there. Both anime about how she learns to deal with new problems in a completely new environment. Both shows have a supernatural theme, with the feudal era in InuYasha and the spirit world in Spirited Away.

Utawarerumono

Utawarerumono

A man awakens in an unfamiliar room, with no recollection of who he is or where he came from. His wounds have been bandaged, and his face is covered with a mask that he cannot remove. With nowhere to go, he decides to stay with his rescuers and help them when needed, waiting for his memory to return. Though his courage, skill, and wisdom quickly gain him the villagers’ respect, the same traits soon land him in hot water with the local feudal lord. Not one to back away from injustice, the path he must follow will lead him to confront his enemies, and his hidden past.

Inuyasha and Utawarerumono both deal with a mystical/feudal japanese era story. Each of these stories is very action oriented with a mix of drama. In Utawarerumono, every character has animal ears like the demons of Inuyasha. These stories are closely related in many aspects, if you like one, you're going to like the other.
Izmo
"Utawarerumono" and "Inuyasha" have many similarities that makes it probable that a fan of either series would like the other as well - and it's more than just doggie-ears. ;-) Both take place in a pseudo-medeival fantasy world where wars are common. Both of them also offer a great variety of interesting characters, that keep the viewer coming back for more. Their biggest differences are that U has a slightly more serious tone to it. (In fact U feels a bit like a crossover between "Juuni Kokki" & I - more lighthearted than JK, but more serious than I.) The fighting in I is more individualistic (two small groups of hardcore fighters - more or less detached from their environment - clash), whereas U focuses more on kingdoms, politics and regular armies fighting (even though it has its fair share of heroes as well). Also U is a lot more straightforward and filler-free (because it didn't drag out for 167 eps).
Nocturnalgloria

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.

Blue Seed

Blue Seed

In the present, Japan is under assault by murderous creatures known as Aragami whose origin and purpose remain unknown. The fate of Japan and the world itself lies with one young woman named Momiji who bears the burden of the Kushinada -- the one who must be sacrificed to silence the Aragami forever. With the help of Mamoru Kusanagi (a human and Aragami hybrid), and an agency filled with firepower-toting bodyguards, Momiji must use her Aragami-sensing powers to help save mankind; but will she ultimately have to lose her own life to save the lives of so many others?

In Blue Seed, the classic young girl must help a 'demon' who should be against her, but they combine forces to defeat monsters and other evils. If that doesn't sound familiar I don't know what else you would like.
XMrNiceguyX
Both series have a similar feel. Both feature a female character who is quite often saved by some sort of demon/mutant. Though Inuyasha is a series which plays in a fantasy world, while Blue Seed is a series which plays in a more modern urban time and place.

Cardcaptor Sakura

Cardcaptor Sakura

Sakura Kinomoto never imagined that by opening a book in her father's library, she'd be responsible for releasing wild magic into the world, yet that's exactly what she did. Too powerful to be let loose on the world, the magical Clow cards were sealed away long ago by their creator, Clow Reed. But all is not lost, for the guardian beast, Keroberos, was sealed along with the cards! Can Sakura, with the help of Keroberos, retrieve the cards before they wreak havoc on the town?

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.

Both InuYasha and Cardcaptor Sakura are about a young and fairly normal girl who finds herself suddenly caught up in the unbelievable world of magic and curses. Both stories focus on the magic/curses, the girl's struggles to cope, both with the change and her sudden new abilities, and the love that inevitably blooms from it all.

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.

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.
