Synopsis:

In the land of Kuruda, warriors with magical powers and incredible fighting skills battle for the ultimate prize: the title of Sevaar, the strongest warrior in the land. Elle Ragu, nicknamed Shadow Skill, is the newest Sevaar to emerge, but that doesn't make her life any easier. Teaching her "little brother," Gau, how to be a warrior, fending off assassins from other kingdoms and thwarting enemy invasions is hard enough, but her biggest challenge will be paying off her drinking debts!

Pure action and not so much character development is the theme of Shadow Skill and Scryed. Senseless fighting for one cause or another, enemies everywhere, opressed people who need help against a greater force, and mystic powers that are constantly honed to become even greater... THAT is what these two series are mainly all about.

sothis
Shadow Skill TV and Scryed are very good recommendations for each other... not only because of the action-packed superpower craziness, but for the character development, and interjections of comedy in between. Scryed is definitely a bit more supernatural/unusual in nature than the mostly martial-arts based Shadow Skill, but I can't see why you wouldn't like one if you liked the other.
Lothar
The most obvious similarity between Shadow Skill and Scryed is the non-stopp, always all out, crazy superpower action. While scryed features unnatural powers wich thr characters are born with, shadow skill is about power achieved through lots and lots of training. Both series shows a wide array of emotions, such as the happiness of friendship or the frustration of being inferior. If you enjoyed shadow skill and want more action-packed anime, go watch scryed right now.

Slayers

Slayers

Meet Lina Inverse, a mighty sorceress who fights evil in the name of... greed, gluttony and black magic?! When she meets Gourry, a swordsman whose skill with the blade is rivaled only by his stupidity, Zelgadis, a grumpy sorceror who's been turned into a golem, and Rezo, a priest known for his benevolence (with a dark secret), you know her adventures are just beginning!

Slayers and Shadow Skill are quite similar. Slayers is less serious than Shadow Skill and has more magic than barehanded fights. The main chacters, Line Inverse (Slayers) and Elle Ragu (Shadow Skill) for both series are very similar. (They even share the same voice actor Hayashibara Megumi). Both often end up in trouble for destroying people's houses etc. Both series have a lot hilarious moments.
Toyashi

It may sound a bit weird for those who know both anime's, but i really see a resemblance in Elle Ragu and Lina Inverse, they both have quite a temper and tend to be clumsy, also Megumi Hayashibara voiced both characters.

The storylines are also somewhat alike, for eksamble the epic timeline setting and how they both travel aimlessly around in the world fighting for either fame or greed.

Either way, if you like Megumi Hayashibara's awesome voice and 90th anime's, i can recommend both.

The way in which the characters fight, that is shadow skill's "begin martial arts language" and the element control in tokyo underground make the action feel very similar. Additionally the cast of supprting characters is similar... not that the characters themselves are really similar, just how the core set of main characters feels together is similar...
Lothar
While Tokyo underground might not be all that all out action show that Shadow skill is, there's still lots of similarities. The characters are never giving up because they are fighting to protect the people important to them and thier skills improve all the way throughout the series. If you liked Shadow skill, the give Tokyo underground a try, you won't regret it.

When your striving to be the best, and especially when your trying to out do a certain boy that always seems to get in your way think of Skip Beat and Special A!  While trying to make their way in the world the heroines have to overcome obstacles along the way with ever a man stuck in their path.  There is a little romance in each and a spice that bring the heated characters to life.

DarkStalkers

DarkStalkers

In the future, the world as we know it is inhabited by humans and Darkstalkers -- beings of the night who descended upon the planet and stole away the light of the sun. Discrimination is at an all time high, fueled by the tendencies of some Darkstalkers to prey upon the humans for their own desires. However, amongst the dark there are those who fight for good, such as the hybrid Donovan and two sisters who are out for revenge. With the coming of the ultimate demon Pyron, the humans and Darkstalkers must band together one last time to save the planet from his wrath...

What Shadow Skill TV and Darkstalkers thrive on is action, hands down. Combine this with character development and an overall entertaining (and somewhat campy) feel, and you have a good recommendation pair. Try it out.

Both series have a fighting spirit! Shadow Skill and HnI's characters are not very similar but in general I think you'll like one if you liked the other.
