Worlds apart, Slayers and Record of Lodoss Wars are both merely high fantasy anime. But both are basically the best representations for the genre within anime. You should watch both if you enjoy anime about high fantasy. Maybe even if you don't.
Eriadu

Both Slayers and RoLW OVA have a medieval-ish setting, and are the stories of a band of adventurers traveling across the land. Though it's definitely more serious than Slayers, Record of Lodoss War has a similar feel to the serious aspects of the Slayers storyline.

LinkSword

Both anime portray broad fantasy worlds with plenty of the usual elements, such as sorcerers, swordsmen, elves, dragons and ogres.

The main cast is composed by a group of several quirky, motley characters who end up traveling together in order to accomplish their common goals, as they enhance their friendship bonds along the way.

Although there is a stronger comedic reliance in Slayers, the characters really remind of each other and there is a similar epic feel in the overall plot and storytelling, not to mention that both take place in a medieval-like world.

Scrapped Princess

Scrapped Princess

The god Mauser delivered unto a world of magic a prophecy: if the Scrapped Princess is allowed to live, she will destroy the entire world. But the knight who was to kill her could not end the life of a newborn child, and so she lived. Fifteen years later, her adopted brother and sister have sworn to protect her, and together they travel from town to town, searching for a life she can't have.

Lina Inverse and Pacifica Casule, both mid teens, and both are powerfull... but here the resemblance ends... as lina is looud to pacifica's quiet etc etc. Same goes with Goury and Shannon... both swordsmen, but shannon is intense to goury's laid back but somehow the complete oppositeness of most of the characters makes these seem really alike.
lantis
I've only seen a little of Scrapped Princess, but enough to know that it follows in the same vein as Slayers. Being one of the first anime in a long time to feature a high fantasy setting so successfully, this would be a good choice as a follow up for all those Slayers fans. And watching Slayers is just a good idea, wether you enjoyed Scrapped Princess or not.
freakzilla

Pacifica is a quiet and peaceful girl, while Lina is a loud and dangerous one. I don't really know why I get the resemblance! Maybe it's because both Pacifica and Lina travel in a group who wants to protect them so they can do their duties.

Shadow Skill TV

Shadow Skill TV

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!

Tehir voice, orange hair, and powerfull fighting are remarkably similar, though Lina inverse lends herself more to gags, while Elle tends to slightly more serious situations. However the way the plot revolves around these two makes the two animes feel very much alike from the viewers perspective
RensV
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.

Sorcerer Hunters

Sorcerer Hunters

The Sorcerer Hunters spend their days imprisoning magic users who've decided to use their powers for evil. But now, they've become the hunted as the ancient wizard Zahha Torte seeks to take control of the world by unleashing the God of Destruction--a god that lies dormant inside one of the Hunters!

This recommendation is a perfect match for shows that are hard to get a match for. Slayer and Bakuretsu Hunters are both lighthearted magic/adventure series. The female leads are quite special and have a somewhat selfish side, while the male leads like to live life to the fullest. There's comedy with a bit of magic on the side in both!

lantis
yet another famous entry in the high(very high) fantasy genre, Slayers is a very entertaining anime in its own right. Its parellel to Bakuretsu Hunters in its comedy and approptiate seriousness is easy to see. Besides, you can't go wrong with Lina Inverse. Or Chocolate and Tira Misu....
serge17

This animes are typicall example of light adventure comedy with action/magic elements. Similar main characters and graphics are visible at first glance. But on top of that we have team of people with superpowers, traveling together to diffrent places and fighting with evil.

Trigun

Trigun

“Vash, the Stampede” - worth 60 billion dollars to the one who can turn him in. Bounty hunters everywhere are on the lookout for this legendary gunman, not to mention insurance agents Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who are tasked with preventing any potential damage that this Vash can cause. But with 60 billion on his head, Vash is not an easy man to find.

While Trigun is technically a wild west sci-fi and Slayers is a fantasy series, I feel that both are quite similar, both in the tone, atmosphere, and the ability for the main character to get into trouble, resulting in large amounts of collateral damage. You'll laugh (not cry) and hunger for more as the series progresses, eager to see what the characters get into next (not to mention how they get out of it). If you loved one, I am sure you will love the other.

eaper

These titles each mix together humor, action, and soem super powerful lead figures together. If you liked how one series bounced between humor and action, then you will probably like it in the other.

Kusuriurisama

Though there are major differences in the setting, the light-headed comedy and the similar old-school design will capture you.
