both series are about two boys who are trying to master martial arts. Ranma is a little bit more romantic than Ken Ichi and Ranma starts out more skilled than Ken I chi but the feel of the show is the same.
Both anime series are hilariously chock full of ninja mayhem. Also, both male leads have an insurmountable amount of strengtbut yet are rather dense at times (especially when it comes to their own feelings). Both female leads are also very similar in that neither one really cares for their new living situations, but are strong-willed yet caring. If you like this series, then you will definitely love the other one!

Fifty years ago, Inuyasha and Kikyo discovered the legendary Horai Island – a place which only appears out of the mists every few decades. During that time, they found several half-demon children who were subject to the demonic rule of the Four War Gods, but had to leave before they could do anything about the situation. In “modern” feudal times, the island reappears and one of the children escapes, seeking out Inuyasha to rescue them all from the Four War Gods. Can Inuyasha liberate the children with the help of the Tetsusaiga, before the island once again disappears into the mists?
InuYasha and Ranma are produced by the same person although with a different style of animation. The humor is the same in each though I personally think that the animation in InuYasha is better than that of Ranma ½, it also seems to be more in depth.
