Both Melody of Oblivion and SoulTaker have somewhat similar style, especially style of insanity/psychedelic. They both combine plot with mystery and abstract images in similar way.
SoulTaker and Melody of Oblivion has too many similarities to describe them all. The most notable of them are drawing style, which uses abstraction and many other, unusual for anime, artistic techniques; both anime kind of ecchi, have well made fights, include very complicated people relationship problems, etc.
Both of it are very extraordinary anime shows because of what many people gives it low rates.

This is definitely a gut feeling recommendation, but I have a feeling that if you liked one of these you might like the other. Both are somewhat dark fantasy with creatures to deal with, and have a really similar mood and feel. Again, call it a gut feeling, but try it on for size.
In times of olde, humans live in constant fear of demons known as yoma. These vicious creatures can take the appearance and memories of humans they have devoured, thus blending into society as they freely feast on human flesh. The key to stopping the yoma lies with the tolerated yet feared Claymores - women who are half-demon, half-human, and fully fated to become the demons that they hunt. Meanwhile, in a village, the young Raki has been banished; his only crime was losing his family to the yoma. Raki is drawn to a Claymore named Clare, and together their journey begins. While Clare fights the yoma plaguing the land, can Raki help her in her struggle to retain her humanity?
Both anime are about warriors who fight in a world where monsters are leading. In both anime, the protagonists are quite lonesome and closed characters but as the plot evolves they become more acceptable of the people around them. They also have a personal sense of justice that sometimes even defies common beliefs.

Although these shows aren't the greatest (truth be told, I found them both to be pretty terrible), I'm sure they will both have fans out there somewhere. Both having a lot of potential, they waste what could have been a good fun ecchi show with some rediculous power-up scenes and numerous panty shots.
If you enjoy a highly convoluted story, with a dash of up-skirt action, then you might just enjoy both of these shows...
The Holy Grail War is a battle between seven magicians who each summon a mythical hero to fight for their cause.

The Grail grants the winner any wish they have. But driven by an unyielding sense of justice and self-sacrifice, for what will Shirou fight?
