Synopsis:

In order to bridge the gap between humans and youkai, The Ministry of Spirit Affairs was formed. Military man Kei Agemaki is assigned to the new unit and seems to be the ideal candidate. He’s charming, polite, and a complete gentleman, but there’s just one problem: he’s absolutely terrified of spirits! When he arrives at the new headquarters, Agemaki is partnered up with a cute, yet brash, youkai named Zakuro. Now the unlikely pair must work together to solve the region’s spirit-related problems to help improve relations between humans and youkai, and maybe help Agemaki overcome his crippling fear while they’re at it.

InuYasha

InuYasha

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.

RedCrossRobbery

Brave half spirit/demon characters that awkwardly fall in love with humans, and have to use blades to fight waves of bad spirits/demons? These series are very similar in feel. Whereas Inuyasha is a cult episodic anime, OYZ has more of a plot to it, and focuses heavier on the relationships between the boys and girls.

Sexy, big breasted animal-spirit chicks fighting with blades your kind of thing? Well these two titles will easily satisfy your cravings then (you weirdo!)

Taishou Yakyuu Musume

Taishou Yakyuu Musume

The year is 1925 and Japan is still a country with socially backwards views, particularly on women's rights. One young girl named Akiko Ogasawara decides to fight for equality in her own way - by forming a girls' baseball team! She soon enlists her good friend Koume Suzukawa, and it's now up to the two of them to put together a team of like-minded and spirited young ladies. Under the able and enthusiastic tutelage of English teacher Miss Garland, the girls will need to bond closely, learn well and practice hard if they are to stand their ground against boys' teams and show a misogynistic society exactly what they're made of... while having some fun in the process.

Recommended if your favorite part of Zakuro or Taisho Yakyuu Musume was the culture clash. Both take place in the early 1900s, when Japan was undergoing rapid Westernization, and the population was mixed on whether to reject or embrace the changes.

Both have a similar color palette (pastels), and light drama.

As destiny would have it, Yuuko has the ability to save Kimihiro from seeing the Youkai, but for a price: Kimihiro must work for Yuuko by performing chores around the store and other odd tasks, until she deems fit.

Both of these series are comic, supernatural anime with protagonists that are less than enthusiastic about spirits. Although they tackle the issues in different ways, if you enjoyed one it might be worth trying the other.

Nakahara Sunako, a high school girl whose interests include horror movies, coffins and gore, is sent by her aunt to live in an extravagant mansion with four ridiculously handsome boys. As if living with these “radiant creatures” who give her constant nosebleeds isn’t hard enough, she soon discovers that the boys have made a bet with her aunt: in exchange for free rent, they will try to mold Sunako into a magnificent lady. As someone who has cast aside all her femininity and sworn to live in darkness, Sunako is ready to do whatever it takes to nullify these efforts; but is there a way for the creatures of darkness and light to coexist?

Both feature a cast of characters that are very similar to each other--the hot/cold main character and male lead, the stoic, tall male, and the cutesy, young-looking male (with respective partners).  If you like anime with these types of characters and the antics that happen because of their personalities, either are a good choice.
