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.

Star Ocean EX

Star Ocean EX

Claude Kenni just wanted to shine free of his military father's shadow, a desire that made him take unnecessary risks. One of those risks whisked him off to an unknown planet full of monsters and magic. There, he met Rena Lanford, an energetic girl with mysterious abilites who believes he is a hero of legend. Soon, they're off on an expedition to find the cause of the monsters and the truth behind the sorcery globe all while hiding the technology he brought with him. Looks like Claude's got bigger shoes to fill than his father's!

In both anime the relationship is between the male protagonist and the female lead. In both cases the two are really nervous for having feelings for each other and can never really tell the other one on how they feel.  Both have an epic journey to them and have good combat scenes to them.

AstralKnight

There are epic battle scenes between two rivals in both, as well as a love triangle and the lead male protecting the lead female. They both also feature scenes of humour and comic relief and a "love triangle". There is also the fact that Kagome as well as Claude don't fit in in the world that they have travelled to. The setting is also similar between the two and both include sword wielders, magic and a jewel (Shikon no Tama/ Rena's pendant). I love them both!

The Twelve Kingdoms

The Twelve Kingdoms

Yohko is nothing but ordinary. Throughout her life she has been considered an outcast, especially with a hair color not native to many in Japan, bright red. Things change for Yohko when a mysterious man named Keiki arrives and claims that she is his empress. Yohko and two friends are then taken through a vortex, and then abandoned.. in a world of demons and magic.

A less humorous, yet just as epic storyline involving the fantasy world, demons, and a girl taken from her world. Juuni Kokki is one of my personal favorites. Check it out.

Alright, so Im assuming that you started with InuYasha and with that in mind, there are way to many reasons to list why these are similar. Both take place in Japan with both having female main characters. They both have two worlds at which the protagonist travel between and have they each have their own white haired body guard ^_^. Without spoiling anything I will just go ahead and say that storyline wise these are in no way similar. In conclusion if your into the anime that has talking creatures and a team of people struggling to complete their goal, then watch this!

I personally enjoyed 12Kingdoms more than InuYasha due to the fact that InuYasha tended to be kind of cartoonish when battle time comes and I just like my anime to be a little more mature like 12Kingdoms.

Urusei Yatsura

Urusei Yatsura

Ataru is one of the most desperate womanizers alive, and a man whose life is about to become complicated.

Now, with strange alien visitors and a jealous wife to handle, Ataru still manages to keep an eye on his ultimate goal: having his own harem!

Urusei Yatsura may be more of a romantic comedy, and Inuyasha may be more of an action series, but they both fit well together. Inuyasha has a romantic element to it and it is focused on a fair bit. Miroku from Inuyasha reminds me very much of Shuutaro from Urusei Yatsura, and Kagome punishes Inuyasha nearly as much as Lum does Ataru, though in different ways. Though Urusei Yatsura is pretty much episodic, there is a bit of a continuing story to follow. If you like one of these, you'd probably like the other.

Both series have such odd characters and bad guys in it with very interesting humor to boot. Plot wise they are quite different as Urusei Yatsura is more lovey dovey where InuYasha has more action and adventure. But i have to say if you liked one check out the other.

Zero no Tsukaima

Zero no Tsukaima

In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?

If you liked Inuyasha you will like Zero no Tsukaima for the comedy aspects of the show. The lead female role treats the main character like a dog many times and even calls him that several times through the series. It is not as serious as Inuyasha in the plot and is alot more light hearted fun than Inuyasha but it is a great watch!

Both Zero no Tsukaima and InuYasha involve someone who was transported into an unknown world, although in InuYasha it's not another world entirely but just several hundred years in the past. They both feel like just normal people from Japan  but discover there is something different about them. They realize it as one or two seemingly simple missions become more and more complex.  In both the female and male leads, Kagome and InuYasha, in InuYasha, and Saito and Louise in Zero no Tsukaima, fight constantly, with the female counterparts somehow hurting the male (although Louise is slightly more violent then Kagome). Both Inuyasha and Louise feel they are greater because of their status, InuYasha as a half-demon and Louise as an aristocrat. They both involve fantasy and both have fighting scenes while the Zero no Tsukaima revolves more on magic, inuYasha revolves mostly on strength and the powers that come with being a priest/priestess, exorcist, demon or half-demon. Both InuYasha and Louise have trouble within their family and are the outcasts among others.

If you liked 11 eyes or inuyasha you would like the other because they both have a little bit of romance in them but both focus equally on both romance and action :p i hope you enjoy them as much as i have
