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.

Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail

Lucy is a seventeen-year-old mage with the power to summon stellar spirits, but what she really wants to do is join a guild - and not just any guild. She has her eyes set on Fairy Tail, a notoriously reckless and outrageous group of magic users who are likely to be drunk or destroying buildings and towns in the process of completing a job! While in town one day Lucy meets a perpetually-seasick boy named Natsu who, through a series of events, reveals to her that he's none other than the fire-eating mage Salamander of Fairy Tail! Lucy is finally able to join Fairy Tail and quickly begins to take on odd jobs with Natsu and his gang for fame and profit. Along with her fiery friend, Happy the flying cat, Natsu's archrival Gray and their overseer the invincible and beautiful Erza, Lucy sets forth for epic adventures that leave an epic amount of destruction in their wake. After all, destroying a city or five doesn't matter as long as they get the job done... right?!

Fairy tail is much more of a regular comdey then the romance comedy/drama that Inuyasha falls under. While Inuyasha has a an over arching plot (gotta get those shards); Fairy tail so far keeps things too a 1-3 epsoide format. The characters are similar personality quirks as well.

Both are shonen anime series with a main character who's kindof a dolt, but is really strong and there for his friends when it counts. They also share a similar love triangle between the main male lead, the female lead, and his crush who has since died, but he is unable to forget about. The fight scenes are pretty epic, too, and both series place a strong emphasis on magic combat.

Fire Tripper

Fire Tripper
  • OVA (1 ep x 49 min)
  • 1985

The time is during Japan's civil war, and the faces are anything but friendly.

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.

Full Metal Panic!

Full Metal Panic!

Gonzo does it again with this action-packed mecha comedy. She's an ordinary high school girl. He's a counterterror agent assigned to protect her from those who would steal the information locked in her mind. OK, so she's not so normal after all. Armored Slave battles and lovers' spats abound as Sousuke and his comrades try to track down the mysterious Gauln before it's too late.

If you like Inuyasha, chances are you'll appreciate Sousuke's position in Full Metal Panic, as he is charged to protect, and worse, rely on, a beautiful high school student with a strange gift.

If you enjoyed the comedy/romance episodes of Inuyasha mixed in with action and battles, you should give Full Metal Panic a try. Like Inuyasha, Full Metal Panic, takes a step back every once and awhile and throws in an episode of shear romcom. This aspect gives these a very similar feel.

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

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.

Hunter x Hunter

Hunter x Hunter

Drawn to the mystique of the unknown, Hunters travel the world in search of terrifying creatures, incredible riches, and unexplored lands.

To reach his goal, he partakes in the formidable Hunter Exam, a series of tests that push the participants to their physical and mental limits, with a Hunter License as the prize. During the exam Gon befriends vengeful Kurapika, doctor-to-be Leorio, and skilled assassin Killua, who have entered for their own reasons. But with the sinister Hisoka standing in their way, will Gon and his friends be able to succeed in obtaining their reward, or even escaping with their lives?

Hunter X Hunter is a great adventure story for all ages. As with Inuyasha, they are on a quest to find someone, only in HxH they aren't trying to kill Gon's father. New adventures and fun.

Hunter X Hunter doesn't have the romance InuYasha has, but it does have the rest of its features! Great action, some comedy moments and a group that sets out on an adventure can be found in both; yet the most important thing both have is that playful feeling!
