Synopsis:

Sakai Yuuji thought he was a normal high school student, until one fateful day when time stopped. Watching in horror, he witnesses a monster devouring the "frozen" people around him; but luckily for Yuuji, he is saved by a sword-wielding red-headed girl that calls herself a "Flame Haze". The girl informs him that he has been dead for some time now and that his current self is merely a replacement for the human that he used be while alive. He is, she says, merely a torch whose life will come to an end when the blue flame in his chest ceases to burn. After this rude awakening, Yuuji realizes that he is able to see the flames of life in other "torches"; and after discovering that a friend of his is also a torch -- and her life is burning out faster than his – he gains the courage to live out the rest of his life with meaning. Will Yuuji be able to find his place in the world before he ceases to exist?

Bakemonogatari

Bakemonogatari

Koyomi Araragi is an aloof boy who holds a strange, supernatural secret which inadvertently leads him to others with similar stories. Gods, spirits and afflictions can be pesky things, taking important memories or causing unusual tendencies – a fact that Koyomi and others are unfortunately aware of. Using the help of an eccentric homeless man, Koyomi is able to help new friends he meets along the way with their own paranormal conundrums…

Shakugan no Shana and Bakemonogatari both share tsundere heroines and overly optimistic male leads. They both deal with the supernatural, and in one chapter of Bakemonogatari, the subject of life after death. If you like tsundere or the supernatural, particularly dealing with the dead, then you should check out these two.

Birdy the Mighty Decode

Birdy the Mighty Decode

Birdy Cephon used to be a butt-kicking intergalactic Federation investigator who took down bad guys where they stand; Tsutomu Senkawa used to be a normal student with shy tendencies and a penchant for exploring abandoned houses. However, when Birdy accidentally killed Tsutomu while trying to apprehend a famous criminal on Earth, Geega, both of their lives changed forever! Now, while Tsutomu's body is reconstructed in a faraway place, the two must share the same body – Tsutomu controlling it by day, and Birdy taking over when she spots a criminal in need of tough justice. All Tsutomu wants is to live a normal life; can he manage to cope with Birdy's enormous eating habits, intense muscle use, and easily irritable attitude?

What can I say? Boy meets girl, girl has superpowers and abilities, while fighting evil, boy joins girl and forms a epic kickbut team.  The action is well placed while the city setting is very similar.  The comedic timing can be off at times, but the action scenes tie in with the overall story in these animes.  A must watch.

Chrono Crusade

Chrono Crusade

It is the early 1920s, and New York City has a problem of evil proportions – demons. With devil worshipping on the rise, foul spirits and monsters have begun to surface, causing fear and panic in their wake. Combating this threat is the Magdalene Order – a group of religious officials charged with exorcising the evil that is spreading throughout the city. Rosette Christopher is a young nun who takes on missions alongside her contracted partner – a young demon named Chrono. Now it is up to this unlikely pair to wield God’s power – and plenty of holy bullets – to destroy the menace in front of them and confront the demons of their past.

jurexplay

Both shows have a lovable a bit overconfident and know-it-all heroine. They have humour a bit of romance and of course extreme action. They both try to kill monsters who wander around the world. Step behind the main protagonist there are shy boys that as the time goes grow more confident. Both shows have good animation and a decent sound with quite deeply exploited characters and addicting plot.

Claymore

Claymore

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?

these animes are very simular in the fact that they all have a normal human boy being engaged unexspectantly with anouther world. They all have action, and some romance. The main charicter(guy is always week but strong willed and wants to help, and protect the girl that is actualy protecting him. In all of these animes the girl thinks nothing of the boy but slowly finds them selfes wanting to protect the ordanary boy, and faling emotionaly atached to them. if you liked one of these animes you should like the otherssorry about my spelling

Dantalian no Shoka and Shakugan no Shana are two series that take place in a magical world that is filled with secrets to a normal person. Within both anime are various small adventures and characters that appear as the series progresses, all relating to magic in one way or another. Not to mention, the heroine is stuck up and the male lead is a pushover in both series.
