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.

Noragami

Noragami

Yato may just be a minor god now, but he’s determined to make it big and he’s got a plan. Unfortunately, things just don’t seem to be going his way. He doesn’t have a single shrine dedicated to him, his partner has just quit, and now he’s got to find a new divine weapon. Just when things look bleak, he meets a girl named Hiyori and changes her life forever.

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 :)

Nurarihyon no Mago

Nurarihyon no Mago

It is said that the spirit who stood at the helm of the night parade of a hundred demons was the supreme commander of all monsters and lord of Pandemonium, Nurarihyon. Young Rikuo comes from the bloodline of Nurarihyon and is one-quarter demon. Though he has the ability to communicate with, and command youkai he has no intention of succeeding his grandfather as head of the Nura clan, instead choosing to live a normal human life. However, with his family and aides all waiting for him to fully accept the succession and his ‘Night Rikuo’ alter-ego determined to become the next leader, can the young schoolboy fight his fate as a Nura to lead the night parade?

Bleach09

Both anime talk about part demon part human protagonists trying to accept their other side.  Due to their impressive demonic lineage they are either shunned/attacked by or respected by other demons which is to the their annoyance.

Anathemus

There's some similarities to be found in both shows, beside the wide variety of demons, there's the struggle of the main characters to find a balance between their human and demon side and the artwork is kinda of similar, and guess what, we have the usual schoolgirls walking in the middle of all this (zZzZz)

Princess Mononoke

Princess Mononoke
  • Movie (1 ep x 134 min)
  • 1997

With the rise of the Iron Age in feudal Japan, man and nature grow increasingly at odds. As mankind infringes more and more into the kingdom of the beasts, many of the elder animal gods begin to succumb to their rage, cursing themselves as they lash out at rural and urban settlements alike. When a young Ashitaka, hero of his village, is imparted with one of these curses after slaying a crazed god, he forces himself into exile to prevent further harm to his village. As he ventures out into the world, however, he discovers just how dire the straights have become - with man and beast ready to break into all out war, his curse becomes the least of his problems. As both sides teeter dangerously on the side of outright slaughter of one another, Ashitaka sets his own problems aside and, using his charisma and honor, seeks to quell the hatred before it gets beyond repair - but will he be in time or is he simply delaying the inevitable?

If you liked Inu Yasha, you'll like Princess Mononoke because the action is excellent. Both have sword scenes and light gore. The two series even have a star female role who is fighting evil. The demons and mystical beasts in both shows are very creative. Created by two different, but great authors/illustrators.

Princess Mononoke and InuYasha involve a young man with a cursed right hand that is both a powerful weapon and a danger to himself, which threatens to consume him in time. This man must go on a journey, fighting demons and defending villagers along the way, to both find a remedy for their curse and to stop something horrible from occurring. All of this takes place with an undertone of a love story in the background. Any of this sound familiar? Although very different, Princess Monoke's Ashitaka has many things in common with InuYasha's Miroku. If you liked one, you may just want to check out the other.

Shaman King

Shaman King

The time has come for the next Shaman King to be crowned in the great Shaman Fight. Yoh Asakura is one such hopeful, a kind-hearted boy with a hidden power... and a terrible secret. Now, the fate of all mankinds rests in the hands of Yoh and his companions as they must battle the most powerful shaman who ever lived!

freakzilla

Both InuYasha and Shaman King can be considered shounen anime as they super powered fights. Yet both have something extra as well: a lighthearted aspect that shies clear of being a full-blooded comedy, and a laidback flow that helps interrupt the fights.

Caramelo

Shaman King and InuYasha are both about fighting. Although Shaman King ended with a cliff-hanger ending, it's still nice. If you liked one, you're sure to like the other. Because both have characters that fight super cool!! XD

Shounen Onmyouji

Shounen Onmyouji

Being the insignificant heir to a talented family is rough, especially for someone who has little of his own talents and honestly desires to live up to the family name. Masahiro is the young grandson of the famed Abe no Seime. Although most consider him to be little in the face of his older male relatives, Masahiro is certain he can not only continue the family legacy but that he can stand in his own right as an Onmyouji. With the assistance of his friend Mokkun, he works to increase his skills and abilities as a spiritual protector and guide. With a great deal of will and the quiet assistance of his insightful grandfather, he will become a force of good in the battle against encroaching evil.

SO, like Inuyasha, is also set in the past and the main character has to exterminate evil youkai and ayakashi to protect his town and the people that live in it.

chamomille

Both series take place in medieval times. They are based on legendary fights of priestesses and monks (miko and onmyouji) against evil creatures and vengeful ghosts. Both series contain romantic scenes as well as scenes dealing with the power of friendship.
