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

both animes inlvolve superpowers, even though shaman king is more in the spiritutal powers but both have nice plots with many fights involved

Apart from being two long animes that failed to give out a clear conclusion, Shaman King and D.Gray-Man resemble each other in many aspects. They are each a story of a boy on a long way to achieve a single, simple goal -- to keep the world as it is. The two protagonists, Allen and Yoh, are both aware of the existences of the powerful antagonists, Earl and Hao, who plan to destroy the world. To face them Allen and Yoh need more power -- and they do so by making friends, undergoing trainings, and experiencing more battles, all step by step. If you have watched either and liked the themes it presented, you might want to consider the other. If you liked Shaman King or D.Gray-Man simply for the lighthearted or dark atmosphere, this recommendation is not for you.
Five years have passed since Goku and his friends defeated Piccolo Jr. and restored peace to the planet. Gohan - Goku's son - and a variety of good, bad, and morally ambiguous characters are back, and perpetually not ready for action! Aliens, androids, and magicians all hatch evil plots to destroy the world and it's up to Goku to save the Earth once more - that is, once he and his comrades train plentifully in preparation. Enemies will become friends and power levels will rise to unimaginable levels, but even with the help of the legendary Dragon Balls and Shen Long will it be enough to save Earth from ultimate destruction?
The comparison between Shaman King and Dragon Ball Z is simple - or maybe not - but both characters (Yoh and Goku) show us that there is always a way to do the right thing, even when the world is against you and your opponent is stronger. Plus, they manage to put a smile on your face at the same time.
I like the idea of a world beyond our world that we touch and see, where there are things unknown such as spirits, energies, and even planets. I think that there are a lot of unknown things in our world that are beyond our senses.
