Kiba

Kiba

Have you ever been sick and tired of the world we live in? So much, that you've tried any means possible to escape it? Zed shares the same feelings as we all do. In the smog ridden, and sunless world of Calm, people manage to scrape by on the bare minimum. Fed up with living in this hellhole, Zed looks for an outlet to another world. Beating down and smashing every door in his sight, he hopes that if he believes strong enough, his gateway will open -- open to a place beyond his imagination, and where his life will have meaning. After finally being transported to another world full of nature and endless battles, Zed soon comes to realize that his life of purpose has just begun.

Kiba and Shaman King are about people that use spirits to aid them and make them strong in battles. If you liked one of these anime for the characters that train to be the best in battle, the newfound friends that would sacrifice themselves for one another, and the amazing magic and superpowers, you would really like the other.

Both series are about people who work toward their goal while enduring trails that test their powers and have proplems with their families and friends along the way

Soul Eater

Soul Eater

In a bizarre fantasy world, students known as meisters are trained at the illustrious Shinigami Weapon Meister University; but the tools they wield are no ordinary weapons! Each meister is paired with a human-like being who can transform into a weapon at will; and after defeating a pre-kishin - a human whose soul has darkened - the weapon eats the soul within it. A meister's ultimate goal is to collect ninety-nine pre-kishin souls and one of a witch so that his or her partner will become an all-powerful Death Scythe. Maka and her partner Soul Eater; Assassin Black Star and his partner Demon Blade Tsubaki; and Shinigami's son Death the Kid and his partners the Demon Twin Pistol Thompson Sisters each vie for their ultimate goal, but plenty of challenges and adventures lie in their way!

Both series revolve around death, the spirit world and special humans with spirits as their weapons.

The relationship between a shaman/master and their spirit/weapon is very similar in both shows, and both have very good and high-passed fight scenes (even though the animation style is quite different).

Smiliar characters, great music and the best actions. Amazing battles and hopeless moments during the battle.

Dragon Drive

Dragon Drive

Throughout his life, Oozora Reiji has always been rather half-hearted. Never able to fully dedicate himself to anything, he lives a sloppy day-to-day existence, until his classmate Yukino introduces him to Dragon Drive -- a virtual reality game. While Reiji garners a passion for the game, it would seem that its founders have other things in mind than simple entertainment. During a special training, Reiji discovers that Dragon Drive is more than just a game, and now must fight for the survival of the dragons as well as all of mankind!

Both of these remind me of each other and the main character and his fiends join a tournament in order to stop the bad guys from getting the prize.

Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail

Lucy is a seventeen-year-old mage with the power to summon stellar spirits, but what she really wants to do is join a guild - and not just any guild. She has her eyes set on Fairy Tail, a notoriously reckless and outrageous group of magic users who are likely to be drunk or destroying buildings and towns in the process of completing a job! While in town one day Lucy meets a perpetually-seasick boy named Natsu who, through a series of events, reveals to her that he's none other than the fire-eating mage Salamander of Fairy Tail! Lucy is finally able to join Fairy Tail and quickly begins to take on odd jobs with Natsu and his gang for fame and profit. Along with her fiery friend, Happy the flying cat, Natsu's archrival Gray and their overseer the invincible and beautiful Erza, Lucy sets forth for epic adventures that leave an epic amount of destruction in their wake. After all, destroying a city or five doesn't matter as long as they get the job done... right?!

Both of these shows are about a group of friends who travel, and fight many battles together. They're shounen/adventure/comedies will similar humor and art styles. Fans of one might enjoy the other.

Both anime include big battles and superpowers, there also about friends and travelling. And both anime tell about what happens along the way to the friends when they travel. Plus the styles of both anime look a bit the same.

Yu Yu Hakusho

Yu Yu Hakusho

Yusuke Urameshi was a normal middle school punk until he was hit and killed by a car, while saving a child. His selfless action earned him the right to gain his life back and serve as a detective of the spirit world, keeping the world of the living safe from a myriad of demons. But being reborn has its price: Yusuke must hatch a spirit beast that will develop according to his actions, and if he doesn't act in a good and honest manner, it will eat his soul. Can Yusuke protect the human and spirit worlds and still manage to save himself in the process?

Both series serve of the good-ol demon and ghost world. Both are long running animes with enjoyable arcs and resonable animations. But what personally connected the series most for me is the resemblance between Ryu and Kuwabara, both Yakuza style, both big mounth and a little heart, both funny as hell. Really...where DO they come up with this stuff?
